It Really IS ALL Hamsher’s Fault

I’d never really read her before-or if I had, I quickly forgot about it.

So I went over to FDL, and what did I find? Really flaming crazy, nutso, lefty stuff –she’s really far, far from the mainstream:

So if anyone’s got a story about a remarkable medical pet recovery, please share it, because we could use some hope and inspiration tonight. Kobe sent me packing a short time ago because he said I was a big drag and I need to get myself in a better place so I can be there for him.

And this:

Susan Boyle Final Performance Video, “Britain’s Got Talent”

And, of course this:

I’m sure Michael Jackson is happy he’s not around to see all the psychobabble being dished up about his life. Did the crappy upbringing really doom him to brooding unhappiness, or did it fuel his otherwordly talent? Would he have been just as strange and troubled without the fame and fortune, or was being “Michael Jackson” the only thing that kept him out of Leavenworth? We’ll never know.

So, in response to all this radical communist propaganda, I have asked Meteor to re-instate my account over at dk, so that I could attack it, and help save the world from pernicious socialistic, communist-y, nazi-like posts like these.

He immediately re-instated me, and they gave me a thumbs up, a pat on the back, and a cold diet coke.

Here’s an excerpt from my first ever rec list diary:

Don’t you fucking fools understand that we need to kill muslims in Afghanistan because Obama says so, and he’s our LEADER, and he WANTS TO HELP THE UNEMPLOYED (so that they can kill people in Afghanistan too).  

And don’t you understand that mandated mandates to pay our American corp-o-crocy will save 300,000,000,000,000.26 lives every year ? Rahm told us so.  Twice.

And don’t you realize that if we don’t stick together, then we’ll LOSE in 2012–and that would be a disaster, because then Jane Hamsher would be IN CHARGE. And we’d ALL be mandated to SHARE OUR PET STORIES.

How’s that for socialisty, femi-nazi stuff?  (look at that chicks HAIR!)

I mean SHARE. How American is that ?

Sharrrrreeee.

Like equally.

You have to do it, and so do I, and then we’d all be sharing…..

Anyway, I went on and on like that, and I got more and more recs, and more and more diet coke (I drank so much coke, my eyes looked like Jeff Van Gundy, after trying to hang onto Alonzo Morning’s leg) .

The good news: I’m a front pager now.

Gonna do a diary on Susan Boyle.

  1. It’s good for the eye’s , if you wanna look like a zombie, and you can clean your cars battery terminals with it too.  

  2. I also remember when Markos said that the center was the ideaological aybss.  I took that metaphor to mean that people had to force the issue because if they didn’t.  It would just mean more status quo.

    Now when I glance over at that steaming orange turd.  I see losers who rather advocate a cult of personality then advocate for liberal and progressive legislation or causes.

    The mob of that site delights when the GOP fouls up like a mentally defective individual.  It’s the small victory for them.  For me, it just looks like one idiot laughing at the other.

    At least now we know where the abyss is at though.

    GOS is clearly extremely unstable. Since it seems to be subject matter here I’ve gone back and paid some attention to it in the past few months. I’ve noticed a stunning amount of volatility over there. You will see a whole lot of rec’d diaries attacking HCR and Obama and lots of agreement and you will see lots of other diaries attacking the left for being ungrateful etc. to the WH. It looks like a full scale fist-fight over there with no end in sight.

    I think this is a good thing. The place badly needed chaos after years of complacent bullshit over there.

    The more this goes on the better for those of us who are actually progressives. The Party Hacks have nothing to sustain them. Obama has thrown out the left and deliberately, I might add. You cannot be a progressive and support Obama and his policies particularly because of the active contempt shown to the left.

    The left must follow Hamsher and ally itself with the populists on the right when it is useful as is now the case. Emmanuel is the chief enemy of the left. The right thinks the left is Obama and what he represents, i.e., the corporate oligarchy. They have the same insight as we do only they are culturally utterly different from us which is why we have such a hard time making alliances.  

  3. One kos diary from yesterday (still up now) railed against Jane for calling out Bernie Sanders. I searched the 900 comments in front of mine and found that only one provided the trivial detail that the original article on FDL wasn’t written by Jane but by Brian Sonenstein.

    A  diary up now attacks her for her alliance with Grover Norquist. I didn’t find any evidence in the 900 comments or in the diary (not an exhaustive review) that anyone had read Jane’s justification for reaching out to Norquist.

    Let’s see. Attack someone for providing a forum. Bust someone in the chops without reading her justifications. Sounds reasonable to me.
