Daily Kos Attacking Charlton Heston on His Passing
Posted on April 6, 2008
I guess we shouldnt expect any sense of decorum from Kossacks, but it is pretty lame that they had to unleash their hatred only minutes after the announcement of the passing of famed American actor Charlton Heston. A Daily Kos diarist named doriangz started out calling Heston a gun-nut and ending with his life and causes being considered political nutdouchebaggery, and the incivility just flowed like the opening of a damn from Kos posters keyboards after that. Not much respect for a man whos film career spanned many decades, who marched with Martin Luther King, and fought to uphold our Constitution.
One poster said that Heston tore into the victims of Columbine, one Marcus Tullius said he laughed when Jerry Falwell died and that Hestons death made the world a better place. And Fairy Tale echoed that with a post that said, Things are already getting better in America now that Heston was dead. RandySF said that he was sorry but that he cant think of anything nice to say about Heston. Aqualad08 seemed to think that if there were no guns in heaven that would make it hell for Heston.
And they were just getting warmed up.
Then, we always have to have the hes a crappy actor types like poster jazzmaniac and the ones that have no respect, like ohcanada who said, As we sow.. I didnt respect him in life..and I wont in death. Then FischFry jumped in to say that he assumed that mention of the Heston film A Touch of Evil was really a description of Heston himself.
And, predictably, there is the foul mouthed type that we have all come to associate so specifically with uncivil leftists, too. PerfectStormer posted a loving So long, motherf***er when he heard the news of Hestons death.
But remember, these are the same sort of people who claim that it is they that are the more compassionate, more caring,, and more civilized in our society. Well, if the compassion they displayed for Charlton Heston is any indication, we are in more trouble than we thought either that or the left has no real compassion at all.
I favor the later, dont you?
Still, there were several posters that were chagrined by the hate and uncivil postings by their fellow lefties. So, at least some of the Kos posters were sorry to hear of Hestons passing and upset at the ignorance of the other posters.
But, all the vitriol is sadly to be expected from the more loving left, unfortunately. I can only imagine how the media will treat him over the next few days. Who can doubt that their compassion will quickly fade to be replaced by sniping and attacks of this iconic and quintessentially American personality?
You know I used to go to those sites to see what they wrote but I really don`t even think of them much anymore. It really is a simple formula, what would a decent person think/say then picture the opposite and there you go. I am more concerned now with spending my time at places where people have some decency and values.
They’re very sad, sick, silly depraved souls. What do you expect from the left ?
The tolerant and peaceful left once again reveals its true nature. It’s time to interact rudely.
I did not look at Kos. But DU was in its’ usual form in regard to this.
The class of DU: (posted only in case they edit it)

15. On the money, Buddy.
Rest in the Hottest Parts of Hell, motherf****r.
You and Saint Ronnie can just toast your asses on the ****ing brimstone while ***king each other off.
My ****ing regards, ***k,
"Classical liberalism," what is commonly known as "open-mindedness," was purged from the left many decades ago. Those who took over the left have steadily moved from "classical liberalism" to leninist, and eventually to stalinist philosophies.
I love it!
BURN IN HELL dump!
Ah, the party of inclusiveness and tolerance......
For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind...........
I was looking at DU, and there’s some of that there, too. But surprisingly also a lot of positive comments.
“Comments are closed for this entry” over at HuffPo. I think we all know why they were closed. They are as hateful or more so than DU or Kos.
What hypocrisy. Do you think that type of behavior only belongs to those of DailyKos or DU? Have you never read the threads here on FR concerning those on the opposite side of the political fence? Read a thread that concerns the late Princess Diana. DailyKos has nothing on ill-bred Freepers... nothing.
Read DU you’ll grow hair on your palms and go blind.
You are right I have read some quite revolting posts FR when some leftist icon dies.
However, the FR moderators have the decency to remove such revolting posts.
Not all the time unfortunately.
DailyKos has nothing on ill-bred Freepers... nothing...
...true as far as it goes...ill-bred is ill-bred...the major differene between the louts on the left and those on the right is the unbridled and juvenile profanity spewing from liberals...I chalk a lot of it off to youth, who are historically poor-mannered cads...
Comments are closed for this entry over at HuffPo. I think we all know why they were closed. They are as hateful or more so than DU or Kos.”
I thought nobody could top DU`s hate until I first saw HuffPo. The libs on HuffPo make DU look downright rational by comparison. I don`t know why Huffington even posts anything when a non-liberal passes away, because she knows she`s going to have to shut down the comments.
Just to help you proove your point. This is an U-Tube comment:

Yes, I will agree with you there. But it does amaze me how many FReepers don’t seem to understand the “no profanity” rule when they post. LOL!
God bless Charlton Heston.
There is a positive side to all these class-lacking comments.
1.) The abject hatred being expressed for Heston demonstrates just how effective he was as an advocate for gun rights.
2.) It also demonstrates the high level of frustration that Liberals feel, since gun-control is effectively off the table as a national political issue (thanks to the Dem leaders understanding that gun control cost Gore West Virginia and a few other states, and therefore the Presidency, in 2000).
Overall, the more angry and frustrated they are, the greater the indication that they know they’re on the losing side of the issue. I look at their behavior this morning and don’t feel angry ... I feel schadenfreude.
The people(?) at Kos and DU should be put on suicide watch when Castro goes belly up.
I suppose I still have posting privileges at DU, but always come away feeling sick and dirty, so I don’t even lurk around and read there. It’s like really perverted pornography. It’s been over 2 years since I even took a peek, it’s just too depressing.
They would have mourned his passing, if he had remained a Liberal.
Why does anyone frequent the “Daily Kos”?
Heston was a fine man and a wonderful actor.
I miss him in movies. He had the tough guy persona.
I feel sorry for them. It must be difficult going through life with such sick, maladjusted traits. Such bile running through their streams. I thank God that I cannot even fathom what would make a person so bitter and nasty.
Rest in Peace, Charlton Heston, a great American.
They are complete and utter diseased gharbage..
I sometimes strive in vain to keep my hatred of these people in check. This is one of those times.
How Clintonian of you!
Ive got to be really honest about this and Im certainly NOT defending the DU or KOS crowd but
Ive read a few pretty hateful and disgusting posts here on FR when some liberal actor, writer or politician has died things like good riddance and rot in hell and worse.
While most Freepers offer prayers and condolences, there are some who mark the occasion of a persons death by sinking to the lowest common denominator and act more like Democrats than they should.
Much to Jim Robinson and our credit, our Admin Mods remove the most offensive comments very quickly.
Not many DU posters seem to understand that the folks making minimum wage seldom are business owners with payrolls to meet. They heap scorn on the initiative needed to start and develop a business. Of course the government's touch in all things is necessary. Needless to say, political correctness reigns supreme.
DailyKos: A sewage treatment plant, minus the treatment.
I’m sure Heston was told as he entered the pearly gates “Well done good and faithful servant”. Something those over at the KOS will never hear.
BTW, TMZ.com the all things Hollywierd website that breaks news when a celebrity breaks wind doesn’t have a single word about Heston’s passing.
Don’t go back. I just did and this is the first post I read:
“anniebelle Sun Apr-06-08 06:28 AM
123. So glad to hear some good news for a change.
I hope that spreader of misery spends all his glory days around the eternal flames of hell with ol’ Raygun talkin’ ‘bout how they really f***** this country - oh they probably won’t even remember, lol. How about we quit glorifying someone just because they had the good sense to DIE.”
These ‘people’ (loosely used term) can’t see their own hypocrisy or the fact that hate consumes them from inside. They are deranged, violent and uncharitable and seem to think sickness, death and tragedy will never touch them. As much as I think they are pond scum at least I will have pity for them should they experience misfortune.
This is expected.
I will say that at FR, at least we try to self-police ourselves here. Even when someone like Ted Kennedy passes on, I expect there will be those here who will be actually gleeful, but they will be counteracted by those who will attempt to keep things in check.
There are no such restraints at DU or Daily Kos. They display their true nature.
read FR comments on Metzenbaum’s passing.
They are just as disgusting.
And not just the Admins, we police ourselves.
Another poster questioned the wisdom of this, because the Repukes have all the guns, and they actually know how to load them.
The strutters kind of slunk away to other topics after that.
And there is nowhere near the level of profanity ANYWHERE on FR. Leftists seem unable to express themselves without resorting to the basest profanity.
Heston was one of the greatest actors ever and lived a very good life. It has been very sad to wake up to this news this morning. May he rest in peace. I can’t imagine why anybody would want to say anything negative about Heston.
There is no moral standard below which the Kos kids will not go.
Profanity is the tool of ignorance.
I can just see those liberals trying to pry his gun out of his ‘cold dead hands’ like a bunch of monkeys trying to open a coconut.
I wish they would start something, I haven’t had a decent thrill in a long time!
