Run away ! Run away !

Poll: 2/3 of US left scared shitless, want to run away ? Poll of 1400+ Daily Kos members reveals annoying admixture of fear and passivity : "They are obviously so hellbent on power and money that they will stop at absolutely nothing, no matter the blood, death, destruction, misery, pain, and hell that they inflict on anyone here or abroad, to keep it and gain more. Given this, are they going to leave?"- Imagine as read aloud, in a voice gradually rising to a piteous wail at the end.

I'd give this post about 5 minutes ( or until Matt wakes up ) but nonetheless I thought this was significant - if irritating.

What's worth contemplating is the persistance and bravery of humans the world over who have continued in the face of government persecution vastly worse than anything the Bush Administration has so far meted out.

Just saying.

Also, I'm interested to see what dios writes about this.

This is a low quality post which "reveals annoying" such a strong political bias that it turns me off.

Of course you do. It's symptomatic.

In other news, 67% of dkos voters believe that democracy's days are numbered in the US. Amazing how perspective changes an issue.

Difference here is that the left is going to shat their pants, hide under their beds, and give over all of their freedom to an authoritarian daddy government.

Troutfishing, why can't you just keep your Kos stuff at Kos and be happy with it?

Why should we give one tenth of one shit about about the quacks at Kos think about anything? We don't care about the quacks at Freeperland either.

Newsflash: partisan shills have opinions that are in line with their crass partisanship. Does not need to be a post to confirm.

bhouston - Political bias ? I've been accused of being one of the most inveterate "axe grinders" of the left on Metafilter.

Perhaps I've been born again.

Or maybe not.

"Troutfishing, why can't you just keep your Kos stuff at Kos " - well, for one thing it's not mine.

"partisan shills have opinions that are in line with their crass partisanship" - et tu ?

Haven't we already established that linking to Kos diaries is neither interesting or acceptable?

So was this post intended to confirm that judgment? Or were you trying to get a timeout or strip away all pretense of your being anything other than an axe-grinding hobby-horse-riding partisan-proselytizing loon?

"the left is going to shat their pants, hide under their beds, and give over all of their freedom to an authoritarian daddy government" - exactly. I don't know - maybe I'm getting cynical.

So in other words even you, the poster, know this will serve for nothing except to make dios feel relevant.

Fantastic. Much appreciated.

Actually, it looked like troutfishing was pointing out a vivid example of 'The Left' behaving in just the sort of way that 'The Right' accuses them of.

'The left is scared shitless' is the sort of thing that you and Paris would say triumphantly in any other thread. Why is it 'axe-grinding hobby-horse-riding partisan-proselytizing loonacy' when troutfishing says it?

This linked post tries to scare you;
then asks if you're scared.
it proves nothing and provides no insight.
I vote delete.

Jesus. You posted a link to some disjointed DailyKos diary that you yourself figured would be deleted, and called out dios to boot? Dumbass.

On preview: A bunch of people beat me to it.

I'd tell you, but this little note down there is reminding me to be topical. But in the future, you can feel free to email me if you want to know what I think about something. It is in my profile. And I'll be more than happy to let you know how much contempt I have for all partisan morons. TIA.
