If I could interrupt for a moment, how about... the Hate Mailbag! [View all]

Democratic Underground may be a contentious place at the moment, but thank goodness there are some common truths which still bring us together after all these years. For example, I think we can all agree that no matter which side of the Snowden vs. Obama debate you come down on, you're a right-wing ratfucking paid-to-post shill. Amirite?!?!

Anyway, if you've been spending a little too much time scrapping with your fellow progressives in the DU bubble lately it may have slipped your mind that there are real right-wing assholes out there who wish for nothing more than to see us all crucified and burned at the stake simultaneously. (Which I've got to admit would make for a pretty sweet heavy metal album cover).

So here's the Hate Mailbag to give you a taste of what conservatives are saying out there in the real world, sprinkled with a dash of good old-fashioned WTF. Enjoy!


I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE AWESOME DISCUSSIONS WE'VE MISSED OUT ON BECAUSE THIS GUY WAS BANNED

Subject: Denied access because of my username?

Are you kidding me? Yes my user name is "liberalsarepoison". However, your site wouldn't even allow me to log in because of that? I can't even join up to have a normal discussion with your followers about politics? How one sided is that! You and your followers are obviously nothing but kool aid drinking, uneducated, socialist fanatics who happen to be the most hypocritical people I've come across. You are what's wrong with society. Way to have a site that lacks any variety and prohibits any challenge in thought. I suppose its a good site for you rejects to sign up on to blow smoke up each others ass. Go fuck yourselves


WAITER, THERE ARE WORDS IN MY SALAD

Subject: again - a researched response in jury and opinion of democrat supporting

well democratic underground since it is DU jury has some sort of appeals, right?
about battle, about war - I answer with a learned -academic and research response of an ISSue of the USA Today as some of my referenced examples.

Rosette - again no cursing - people are democratic and support opinion in DEMOCRATIC underground democracy stuff...

democrat - people say they support more than others individuals like obama - but they are supporting democratic underground... and supporting Obama

I saw what was pulled but this isn't accurate of my history of democratic underground. I am not new to democratic underground but past a little time just over 2 months/calling it 60 days or longer then I am pulled so...

WHAT A LOAD OF GOBLES

Subject: (no subject)

Hello:

Please tell me why my posting privileges were revoked.

I am doing research for a future article.

I am going to make a list of websites that are merely propaganda and those that
fulfill their 4th estate obligations by acting as a platform for the free exchange of ideas.

The current theory now is that their is a group of website are trying to continue the former
#majormedia's strategy of controlling information to the masses so that current corrupt status quo can remain in power....

I look forward to your assistance in helping gather the data necessary to write this article.

As the courts have ruled, that your failure to answer (even if invoking 5th amendment rights) can be interpretted as your admission that your truthful answers would be injurious to your position, your failure to relpy will be accept as your indication that you are purely a propaganda agency (in the vision of Gobles) with the intent of managing and manipulating the American Public like cattle. (in the style of Edward Bernays)

Please advise.

Thank you for your time.


A LETTER FROM ONE OF THE LEADING LIGHTS OF THE INTELLECTUAL RIGHT

Subject: FAGGOT LOVERS

You liberals love fags and baby killers.
Also how about That half breed piece of shit Obama he's doing a good job helping faggots and feminist.


HAVE YOU EVER DANCED WITH A DOUCHEBAG IN THE PALE MOONLIGHT?

ANOTHER LETTER FROM ONE OF THE LEADING LIGHTS OF THE INTELLECTUAL RIGHT

Subject: (no subject)

HEY YOU LEFT WING SACKS OF 0BAMA LOVING MONKEY SHIT GO FUCK YOURSELVES!


IN DEFENSE OF ANTISEMITISM

Subject: account suspension

Why was my account suspended.
I've made only a hand full of recent posts but have been a member for a number of years. I am a liberal I vote democrat, I however don't always agree with whatever the current stance is on any given issue. I have my own mind. I support the 2nd amendment and don't blindly support causes or foreign nations just because their is pressure to do so.

I recently posted in a thread about Zionism and anti-semitism.

My view is not a popular one, but it is based on critical thought and history. The Israelites the Hebrews and the Semitic people were not Jewish. That's not to say that many Jews are not descendants of them. Antisemitism is not anti-jew, anti-zionist is not anti-jew. The original poster was labeling everyone who is anti-zionist as an anti-semite in order to deflect criticism ofZionism. They were labeling others unjustly as bigots, when they them self were displaying bigotry.

If you want an echo chamber at DU, fine so be it. If you want to be inclusive of all liberals who value critical thinking over emotion then give me back my account


I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

Subject: re: OurKidsFirst

This is Lynne (OurKidsFirst). My comment was deleted. Why? Are you
not open to discussion? No comments on the million dollars for the
Indian reality show? No comment on the millions going to Indonesia
for master's degrees? What about our own kids who have to pay
exobitant out o state fees for college? What about the monetary
abuses our own governement agencies commit? Do you agree with those?

I was not trying to blast anyone - just throwing out my concerns about
our economy, about our kids. Socialism does not work; it takes the
iniative away and everyone becomes as one. Is that how you want your
kids and grandkids to live? Where is the excitement of living? Of
achieving?

I do not work for a company with a union. My retirement is what I
save. If I pay higher taxes to fund someone else's retirement, who
funds mine?

If you respond to this email, thank you. If not, so be it.
