• What's happened around here?  How is it hate speech of any stripe is being given credence?  What the hell happened to you and all the other reasonable people?  

  • I thought you didn't go in for personal attacks - yet here you are trashing the diarist.  If you can truly listen to Pfleger's diatribe and say that Senator Clinton deserves it - then you promote hate speech - and you and I no longer have anything to say to one another.

    And by the way - I know Pfleger well.  Can you say the same?  I lived 10 years in Chicago.  He's a fixture on the nightly news.  The man's considered a loon.  He engages in violence and hate speech any time anyone threatens his little kingdom.  He teaches in the Catholic school system.  I have connections there (teachers I know and have worked with).  Pfleger's notorious.  I could cite you chapter and verse regarding his temper, and tendency towards self promotion.

    But you seem to feel what he's had to say is all fine and good because he said it supposedly in support of Senator Obama.  Let me tell you - the only person Pfleger supports is Pfleger.  What he said was execrable.  Call the diarist as many names as you like - it still doesn't make what that man said right.

    You troll rated me upthread for directing a comment specifically to the diarist.  I was lamenting the lack of civility that often permeates diaries these days.  You proved my point.  You troll rated me against MyDD guidelines.  I've been a registered user here since this place was known as "My Due Diligence".  Dilettantes should go troll other waters.

    For furthering the discussion and stating my opinion.  Look upthread.  There was no reason for doing it - none.  Markie's account here is recent.  There has been no interaction - only specious troll rating.  My comment spoke to that.

    it gets trashed these days.  No discussion's even possible.  Sometimes I agree - sometimes I disagree.  What I want to do is discuss it.  Not anymore - its instant negativity - instant pile on.  I'm really sorry.  MyDD used to be open.  Now......

    And if you're not familiar with the reference - I suggest you look up the song stylings of Bert Kalmer and Harry Ruby.

    You don't know me.  You don't know if I'm black or white, if I marched with King or sat in a pew listening to him speak.  And to compare Pflager to King proves you haven't a clue about either man.

    Any time anyone disagrees with you or your perception of what Senator Obama stands for - you say that person is a racist.  Without knowing who they are, their background - or if they are black or white - you tar everybody with the same brush.  That's like someone saying anyone who votes for Obama is a misogynist.  

    That you cannot (or refuse to) see that both are fallacies, puts reasoned discussion off the table.

    I should have said I agreed with you.  I'm just so pissed off at all these dilettantes creating accounts solely to troll comment threads.  Markie's just another one of those.  They dirty up the waters - then move on to the next.  It's gotten so it's impossible to have any kind of discussion here.  I took a vacation from Kos for the same reasons.  I'm sorry to see MyDD go that way too.

    My reply was to the ratings abuse.

    and general disrespect?  It's wrong - and no amount of bootstrapping will ever make it right.  Saying nya, nya, nay - and "she did it first!!!" is schoolyard.  Wrong is wrong.  It doesn't become right because you hate someone.

    You have no history here.  You've contributed very little to this discussion - and not one word to any others.  This can only mean you are here to disrupt.
