There is a huge difference between being a political opponent and being an enemy. I treat all Democrats as respected opponents, bit I rarely see a Democrat reciprocating that. Why? Daily Kos!
Daily Kos is the #1 enemy of this country, because it treats all Conservatives as vile enemies, not opponents worthy of civility. It spreads and profits from political hatred, that inches us closer and closer towards open political violence. Already, Free speech rights of Conservatives are being violently infringed upon by Liberal mob, such as, for instance, Columbia University students attacking Minuteman Project founder.
- promotes hate towards all Republicans (read here, here , here – results of 5 minute search), EXAMPLE : “I still have a score to settle with the Repukes regarding the way they insulted Kerry’s wife for being who she is. I’ll take my shots at any of these bastards where I can get them.“
- runs anti-Semitic and racist ads (see here and here)
- promotes anti-soldier propaganda — the famous “Screw Them posting about four contractors who were lynched alive in Falluja in 2005.
And now, all Democratic candidates are going over to Daily Kos Convention to be sycophants to these vile haters! What am I, as a voter, supposed to make of this — that Democrats support these sick things?
Do not misundertand me : Republicans are far from perfect. But NO REPUBLICAN CAN BE ACCUSED OF HATING DEMOCRATS!
Daily Kos and people associating themselves with it, are worse than Al-Qaeda.
At the very least Usama is honest, while Daily Kos are wrapping themselves in American flag, while engaging in promotion of political hatred.
