Daily Obama Not Enough: Daily Kos Infiltrating MyDD?
by PJ Jefferson, Tue Mar 18, 2008 at 08:37:34 AM EDT
By this time, I'm sure we're all aware that many Daily Kos members who support Hillary Clinton have abandoned the site, as a result of the toxic environment created, cultivated, fometed, and pushed by Markos himself, against us Clinton supporters.
As many of you are also aware, the site is no longer about electing Democrats, but about destroying the DNC and replacing it with Markos and his 50 state strategy, so he can be the new breed of Democratic strategist, and make the kind of money in the next election cycle that Mark Penn is making in this one.
Apparently, the members of Daily Kos are not content with changing just Daily Kos. They want to overtake the content of all other progressive blogs, get them to give up progressive politics altogether, and become extensions of Daily Kos.
Don't believe me. Take a look at this diary currently on Daily Kos:
Help Turn MyDD and Talkleft into Pro-Obama sites!

No more intentional silence, or similar drama - let's meet with our net-neighbors and counter some of the meaningless hatred that exists out there.
Sure, it's hostile territory - but if a lot more people put together just a little bit of tact and friendliness, the meaningless hostility itself can become a common enemy once again.
Isn't that the real meaning behind the idea of 'love thy enemy'? (Matthew 5:43-44)

In the delegate race, Obama has a significant lead - but in terms of online representation, Obama has an even greater lead.
This makes the online Hillary Clinton support sites somewhat insecure and paranoid, to say the least, and willing to jump to crazy stunts (recent 'strikes', insane rhetoric) to force themselves to see hope when online.
So, in response to the intentional unilateral silence of Clinton bloggers, the appropriate response should not be more hatred and isolation - it should be love, and embrace!
I want more positive, informative pro-Obama posts over at MyDD and Talkleft. I want more non-troll posts inspiring actual hope in these places - I want the exact opposite of a 'strike' or further insults. No one should refer to these sites insultingly, but rather should work to counter incorrect assumptions wherever they lie.
If this succeeds, the same honest rhetoric in hostile territory techniques can be used in sites like HillaryIs44, and even in pro-McCain websites.
[HERE COMES THE MOB MENTALITY WE KNOW SO WELL FROM DAILY KOS]
Don't allow other Obama supporters to post alone. If you see a friendly topic elsewhere, do what you can to uprate it, and to constructively add to the topic without breaking the other rules.
That's right. We're not content with ruining Daily Kos with our groupthink mentality and ganging up on others. We won't be content until we take over all progressive blogs, and push supporters of any other Democratic candidate away.
The funny thing is that if I had it my way, the opposite would occur. This place should just be the de-facto site for Hillary supporters, while Daily Kos should be the de facto site for anyone who wants to destroy the DNC as much as Markos does.
No one is changing anyone else's mind at this point, so why are we arguing with or otherwise engaging each other on these issues?
