Alegre's Corner is a fraud..... (and so are the PUMAs)

I surfed over to Alegre's Corner to this diary ....

http://alegrescorner.soapblox.net/showDi ary.do?diaryId=849

I understand that these women are upset, but several were talking about voting for MCain because of Palin. I noticed that most of them were calling themselves feminists, so I decided to actually post and see if I could inject a little balance into the discussion.

I first tried to explain that Obama wasn't a party hack because Hillary had most of the superdelgates, 90% of the Black vote and endorsements of most of the Black politicians before Iowa .I then when on to note that it was a bloody primary and both side's hands were dirty.
I posted a 2 paragraph blurb where I briefly covered the following six points:

1. Obama was raised by  his mother, who was on welfare for a short time, but ultimately died from cancer because she couldn't afford good heathcare.... I raised the question if they thought that  McSame cared about healthcare as much as Obama....

2. Obama is heavily influenced by his maternal grandmother and he would be a friend to women's issues.
3. Michelle Obama is a strong woman, who basically caught the same treatment by Hannity and Co. as Hillary about the 'Really Proud" comment.

I then contrasted this against McSame:

  1. I noted how he left his first wife who was disfigured  from the car accident..
  2. And then married the trophy wife before the ink was dry on the divorce papers...
  3. Only to call Cindy McCain a C-NT in front of reporters years later.
This last point I hammered home. I asked what kind of feminists  would vote for a man like this?

Now here's the kicker.

MY POST WAS DELETED WITHIN FIVE MINUTES!!!

What kind of Democrats are these?

DINOs, I tell you......

Let them do whatever they want; it's not productive to dwell on them - it will just serve to reopen old wounds.  It's time to move on.

Trying to engage them is like trying to sell Wine to someone who wants to drink Gasoline.

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud

A prominent voice on Alegre's blog, "grlpatriot", was exposed as being a Republican on FARK.com, and it's amsuing to see that nobody has anyone there caught onto that fact, especially considering her "newfound respect" for Senator McCain with his VP choice.

Sure, Bob, I'l find you the link and email it to you. I'd rather not do it in the forum; I'd rather let her stew around and cause s much trouble as possible. It's hilarious.

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud

On "texasdarlin"s website I posted a link to factcheck.org putting a smack down on the 'Obama wasn't born in the USA' crowd.

BOOM: Deleted immediately

Those "PUMA" blogs are so heavily moderated that they (might) let a few weak dissenting posts in here and there.

And I'm glad. Because it means deep down the site owners and administrators know they lack any integrity whatsoever. I know that every time they look in the mirror and see pond scum.

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud

I personally think that the only reason to ban someone if they continue to get facts wrong. If they have post any factually incorrect but refuse to acknowledge when those inaccuracies are pointed out.

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud

and then there are those like cincci above and a few others who feel banning should be done for disagreeing with them, or not kissing up to them enough. really kind of sad to be them...

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud

All it "means" is that we don't want that valueless tripe invading our blogs, so we keep Obama propaganda out. If we wanted to read patronizing deception or virulent abuse we would just go to DK. We already know what each other think, and we are complete enemies, no further conversation is necessary.

Hmm... let's see. Here is what I posted.

http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/ born_in_the_usa.html

I'll let the fellow MyDD'ers decide whether that link is patronizing deception or virulent abuse. If you want to give some random screen name on the internet the status of "enemy", be my guest. Have fun.

Wow, "enemies". You're right, I mean after all the Republicans are just sooooo right on everything, I mean gosh, the differences between Hillary Clinton's worldview and John McCain's are just sooooooo close!

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud

Factcheck.org is Obama propaganda?  

Also, if we're enemies, why are you here?  Go back to the PUMAS and redstate.

Psychos Under Mad Alegre

Wait a minute. You have the audacity to post here and expect others to shut their mouths on that blog? What did the diarist say that was obama propaganda? Are your fellow fucking morons at Alegre's site (PSYCHOS UNDER MAD ALEGRE) so afraid of discussing FACTS?

I'll see your deleted post...

My post wasn't deleted, but my account was. You can see my terribly controversial and importune two posts here.  Then someone named campskunk said "it's past jeremy's nap time. say goodbye, now," linked to my LJ entry where I'd expressed support of Obama (as though I'd tried to conceal it from them, and he or she had cleverly seen through my ruse), and deleted my account.  At least, I assume it was deleted -- I can't log in anymore.

So, I raise my eyebrows and say, "Huh."  I didn't have anything else to say in the thread, but it seems awfully insecure to me.

Re: We didn't turn on them dtaylor

Yes they are.

Democracy isn't about getting cronies to rig elections for you.

Democracy is about the will of the people.

Democracy is about freedom

They are democrats.

They defend our party's ability to be free to choose our own nominee without having GOP and other non democrats overturn a 1,000,000 vote democratic party member advantage.

Democrats have had a history of being an open party.  In the 80s we had very conservative senators in the south.

We have been open to those more conservative and it served us well.

We will be open again when we welcome the PUMAs back in 2010 or 2012.

Re: We didn't turn on them dtaylor

Since Democracy is about the will of the people, and Barack Obama won the majority of votes in the Democratic primary, and was then voted as the nominee of the party by acclimation........

By the way, you put such inane stuff here and still have an account. Alegre bans people for much much less. Don't you guys have any shame? The hypocrisy doedsn't embarass you? How you guys whined about moderation on other sites but engage in worse censorship on yours?

as was susanhu, Larry Johnson, Universal, TexasDarlin, Fleaflicker, campskunk, NewHampster, DTaylor (the original one), and several others who have been exposed for the closet Republicans they are.  Good times on mydd, back during the primaries.  I literally thought everyone had gone insane here.

Web sites don't need to be Democratic. You knew what the reaction would be. Why do you even bother? You're only creating more traffic when you visit that site. Stay away if it bothers you.

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud..... (

Alegre is a whiny self absorbed twit. She is obsessed and has gone off the deep end. Her big move to MYDD from DKOs which got some press coverage obviously went to her head. She think she is some soldier in a holy war against Obama.

That idiot would whine all year about how she was silenced on Dkos. Freaking moron would go on and on about it. And her buddies would cheer her on spamming our rec list with her inane diaries.

Now she censors reasonable posts on her blog and she lacks the guts to even mention that. Whatever happened to all those PUMA types who would come here and act like they will stay with MYDD from now on? Once they didn't get unanimous love as Hillary conceded, they bolted.

I hope they have a miserable time when Obama wins.

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud..... (

no comparison. I never set up a site. I never advocated censoring anyone for mere difference of opinion.

Alegre obviously believes in double standards.

Re: Alegre's Corner is a fraud

I posted on alegre's that picking Clinton would mean bringing to the white house a whole history that could undermine Obama's efficacy.In response I was told that I should stop "tip toeing around" and just come out and call them "racists" because I "know [I] want to." My post in response calling this a slippery slope argument was deleted and so was my account.

Re: You're being misleading.

I notice you don't mention the front page diary from 8/30, in which she said the following:

"I get the sense that some folks didn't hear my message when I posted those diaries the other day, because I'm suddenly seeing a lot of pro-McCain stuff here.  I know his VP choice is causing some buzz and that's natural, but I think it's time for a few reminders you guys.  Bottom line - that pro-gooper stuff belongs on other sites - not here. "  

Several people said their good-bys in the comment section.

This is a free country and Alegre and her readers are entitled to their opinions.  Why go over there just to provoke?
