Some In Democratic Underground Worried About Backlash To Their Falwell Hate Rantings
NewsBusters ^ | May 17, 2007 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 05/17/2007 1:49:33 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

Almost from the moment that Jerry Falwell's death was announced on Tuesday, the leftwing nutroots at the Democratic Underground began gleefully dancing upon his grave. Here are just a few of their hate rants about Falwell:

Uncharitable or not, I am sorry his death was not more painful and drawn out. He did not deserve a relatively peaceful, painless and quick death.

Rot in Hell Falwell!

May Pat Robertson and James Dobson be next.

I'm putting on my dancing shoes and am going to look for his grave!

One more nail in the coffin for the hate crime that is religion.

Pretty strong stuff. Even a few of the more rational DUers thought it was over the top and are now worrying about the backlash to their extreme hate rants against Falwell. One of these DUers goes by the screen name of earthlover who is now desperately worried that this backlash will ultimately hurt the Democrats at the polls. Here is some of the nervous commentary by DUer earthlover in a thread titled, Is Our Response To Falwell's Death Hurting Our Cause?

Since Falwell's death, these boards have been inundated with posts, many of which demonstrated absolute glee at his death and judgementalism that rivaled Falwell's...

...Followers of Falwell, and there are MANY, are going to be really angry to read or hear about such hostility coming from our side, especially during this time. This will motivate them to fight their fight even harder, and they will have all kinds of ammunition now to further their cause and to try to convince everyone that Democrats are a bunch of hypocrites who show the same sort of hatred they disdain in others...

...Members of the conservative media are already picking up on the profuse hatred being spewed forth on these boards. So, to those who think these boards are just a means to "vent," remember one thing: the whole world is watching... 

...Most moderates, and most sane people, and ANYONE with common sense is going to see people dancing on the grave of a still-warm body as being reprehensible, stupid and just plain rude...

...So, the question I have for you: do you have a political death-wish? Democrats have a great chance of winning in 08. However, the sort of thing I have seen about Falwell is going to help...the Republicans! They already are skilled at getting elected by painting us as anti-religion. Who would have dreamt that Democrats would act the way they have done this past day? It is a nightmare to me, but it is a dream come true for the Republicans...

To answer your question, earthlover, yes you folks on the left do have a political death wish. Don't think the over the edge hate rants against Falwell in the leftwing blogosphere will go unnoticed. Much to your evident dismay they will definitely be remembered.

If you don't have the stomach to see the unfiltered sicko hate rants against Falwell directly in the Democratic Underground, you can read a large digest of their bile in the DUmmie FUnnies.

^5 PJ. Newsbusters, coooool.

I feel truly sorry for those that said these horrible things in DU. What awaits them is unimaginable, both in this life (as they are extremely unhappy and bitter people with nothing to believe in) as well as after.

Sad is all I can feel for them.

I have yet to see posts here on FR which compare to the posts I've read regarding Falwell on the lefty sites, and we're the haters? I hope this bites dems in the butt big time.

I certainly hope there is a BIG backlash. I am not a member of his congregation or his denomination, but I think he did a lot of good things for a lot of people.

For the left to be so gleeful over his death is sick. It shows just how evil people can be.

As an anti-Falwell liberal Christian and as a Democrat,

Oh brother! In other words, he's a secular christian. LOL You can't be all of that other stuff and still be a practicing Christian. It's just not possible. You're either a follower of Jesus Christ, or you are against Him. It's just that simple.

I didn't see much in the way of "I can't wait to dance on her grave" posts about Molly Ivins here. I think the only thing bordering on that was the suggestion that she was so filled with vitriolic hatred that it may have hastened her declining health.

I went on to the DU to read the comments as they were being posted. There was 2 or 3 DU posters that were trying to stop the madness, but to no avail. The hate was feeding on itself. It was unbelievable.

When someone from the religious left passes away someday, Jackson or Sharpton, you can count on them being treated with tons more respect here on the FR.

I doubt any tears will be shed, that's for sure. Teddy should have done time for manslaughter, and Jimmah would have been shot for treason in earlier times. Hanoi Jane would have been exiled in those same earlier times.

They are not upset because people are getting the wrong impression about them.

They are upset because they have revealed themselves.

When the mask slips over at DU, it’s pretty ugly underneath.

Indeed. It really is fascinating to watch the moral rationale unfold of an entire party that frets endlessly over the death of several hundred soldiers per year, who are of legal age and volunteered to go into battle, while simultaneously ignoring the 1 million plus babies our nation allows to be murdered annually.

This guy is really delusional. The Democratic left acts reprehensibly all the time, and has no tolerance whatsoever, and it's not just about Falwell, they've reacted poorly many times.

Hey, DUmmies!

Yes, we’re going to make sure that as many people as possible see your TRUE COLORS,

and we’ll also make sure that they understand that, when electing Democrats, they are voting for people who represent this same mentality.

First, these quotes can't be from Dirty Underpants because the following conditions don't apply:

1) All the words are spelled correctly.

2) Every third word isn't a swear word.

3) The word 'BUSHITLER' is missing.

Nice try though!

Naturally. Anti-American 3d World Thugs, as well as Jihadists, Communists, and other haters of Christianity and liberty, all receive the endorsement of the DUmmies, nutroots, and other Dhimmicrat kooks by the absence of condemnation from these "people" (I use the term in its broadest sense, since though they look like you and I, yet have forsaken the logic that should be man as animalis rationalis).

John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
John 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
John 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Did they really say that?... I mean by the left's own logic saying you want to "gas" Joe Lieberman (a Jew) like "a dog"... (pure Nazi imagery) ranks with saying you want to "lynch" a black... IE "code word" raciest hate speech...

And these will be the future leaders of the Democrat Party. They will, indeed, reveal themselves to be Stalinists. You can bet if the Democrats ever gain both Houses and the Presidency, expect to see Christian leaders like Dobson being jailed either through “hate-crimes” legislation or through IRS audits. They will attempt to silence talk radio and will attempt another major gun-grab. I am afraid the American people are too feminized to resist what I see coming from the disloyal opposition.

The left will mourn his passing.

I hope someone is archiving those threads....they were truly despicable. Even one thread which started out as “This is not DU’s finest hour” degenerated into the most hateful thread you could ever read.

Reading those nonsensical posts, one would have thought Falwell had gassed 6 million Jews.

I was browsing Amazon’s books today for some summer reading and was amazed to see the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx as Number 31 under “classics”:
