Let’s open this with an admission; There’s not much to write about on the subject I’ve been writing on for the last several weeks; John Kerry.
So, perhaps this week we should turn to his supporters for things to write on…let’s see what we can find that is consistent between them, that’s currently making the rounds.
One of the ones that’s gained some serious argument in Blogdom of late is Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, otherwise known to we mere mortals, as “Daily Kos” Kos, as he’s known, has been rather tight with the Democrat leadership for some time. According to reports, John Kerry’s campaign has received $48,349 by 566 donors through Daily Kos. The Democrat Party as a whole has received $60,776 by 636 donors through Daily Kos. Kerry’s website linked directly to Kos.
Linked, as in past tense, because this genius came up with the following comment, as regards the news media not showing for the most part, the available vid of the Fallujah attacks…
“Let the people see what war is like… There are real repercussions to Bush’s folly. That said, I feel nothing over the death of mercenaries. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.'”
Well, first, I suppose I should ask: Delivering food and such is “waging war for profit”?
That point aside, it is interesting how often the left shows how much of it’s mantra is founded in blind hatred… and this seems a potent example of such. Eric Margolis, of Blogs For Bush says it better than most:
“Such shameful, despicable, immoral words, uttered by liberal blogger Markos Moulitsas (“Kos”) are a sad and disturbing reflection of the lows that liberals take themselves to because of their hatred for President Bush, and objections to the freedom of the Iraqi people.
It is by no means any less disturbing that Senator John Kerry and the Democrat Party have embraced Kos because of his prowess on the blogosphere.”
And Kos is by no means unique in this.
Indeed, he’s unremarkable. I mean, at what point do we start to admit to ourselves that Kos and his now-exposed attitudes, are not all that unusual on the left?
Let’s take a look at Democrat rank and file for reaction to his ‘outing’, right from John F’ing Kerry’s website, to drive the point home, shall we?
“Cutting off your nose to spite your face in my opinion. Kos has not only raised awareness of Democratic values, he has raised real dollars to aid in the fight against Bush and his cronies. Even if his post was incorrect (which it wasn’t, in its entirety), we NEED Kos, period.”
So gloating over American dead is Democratic Values? Nice they finally admit it.
“As a Democrat who supports John Kerry for President, I hereby DEMAND that you replace this link and quit acting like cowards.”
So, not agreeing with Kos in his gloat over American dead is being a ‘coward’.
“The DailyKos blog has done more to invigorate progressive and Democratic action, activism, and information than just about any destination on the Internet.”
“What KoS said makes some sense.”
“Chasing the big stories the Media is in a tizzy over is just politics as usual and won’t separate this campaign from the sensationalism”
“It’s almost frightening to see such censorship from someone who claims to be a Democrat…some big tent!!”
Oh, great. So, calling Kos what he is, is censorship.
“kos is a moderate mainstream Democrat.”
Yeah, I’ll accept that. But, think, actually stop think and ask yourselves, you who call yourself mainstream Democrats… like what you see?
“Because Kos is a part of the mainstream left and a DNC insider, the average American could get the idea that his comments are a reflection of the Party’s feelings about American and Americans.”
Oh, that last one’s a keeper. “Could get the idea”? Could see that as the fact, you mean. This last guy at least is willing to admit the truth; that the American people will see this is the kind of mindless hatred that the left is driven by. And in the end, that’s really all it is, driving tem; Hate.
This hate is nothing new; Hate has always been party and parcel of the left. Kos and his comments are not at all unlike Fonda and her ilk..(Kerry included) wishing death and destruction on those fighting in ‘nam. This is not piling on; this is simply fact. Fact the left canntot get around. Try as the left will to disconnect themselves from such people, they cannot; such people, such ideals, are the base of the left wing today.
The sooner we can get to the point of admitting it, we can “move on.”
Keep a watch on BitsBlog; I’m sure this story is far from over.
