Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Mon Dec 31, 2012, 01:09 PM

 

Before I get tombstoned, can someone here please recommend a good & geniunely progressive

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by aikoaiko (a host of the General Discussion forum).

blog or news fourm for me? I tried searching Google but couldn't find anything lively & devoid of imbecilic RW trolls. I post to Kos occasionally, but I'm looking for a site that's structured more like this one....preferably one without a jury system & that's actually friendly towards Socialists & more left-leaning progressives of every stripe.

Thanks in advance for any help.

60. If you want everyone to say what you want to say

to agree with everything everyone says, then you are not progressive.

The definition of a liberal - sadly, has been replaced by a PC progressive - is to accept everyone, to allow for dissenting opinion to, especially, accommodate minority opinions, as long as they do not endanger the lives or liberty of others.

67. Good grief--I am astounded that the poster survived that one.

Perpetually yeast infected (deleted)? REALLY?

I think this might be a Blaze of Glory/Divide and Conquer effort, a way of trying to drive off our long-term far left members by soliciting a link to another web site in the hopes of starting a stampede of disaffected folks.

Get a few links to other forums, stand up, wave the flag, and bellow "Follow me?" I doubt that using language like that is going to persuade anyone of one's "progressive" bona fides.

DU isn't a small club anymore--this attempt is a major fail. If the writer of the OP wants a site more to his liking, he might just have to create it himself.

Too many people seem to be skirting around the basic issue of 2nd amendment repeal. Too many people seem to think there is a middle way of dealing with this problem and its frustrating trying to talk to them.

I'll stay on this site unless they eventually boot me, because I'm a democrat, but I'd like other outlets for my political beliefs as well.

69. repetition of the Nader mantra caused perhaps 5 to 10 million people to stay home

 

based on the number of total voters in each election and 2000 was the lowest
forget the theft scenerio, the total votes was way below, and IMHO that was because voters were told their vote didn't matter, so they stayed home.
Who said it? Nader did.
As he takes no blame, IMHO he is happy with the 2000 outcome

85. HERE DAMMIT!!!

You replied to this (since hidden) post:
61. FUCK HIM & THE DEMS. WE NEED A PROGRESSIVE PARTY NOW!
Our President lied to us during the campaign to get our donations, GOTV and votes. He's a fucking liar and a traitor to all Americans. He knows how the CPI proposed revision will KILL seniors, but God forbid, he'd go for lifting the Cap instead. I can't tell you how betrayed and furious I am. This not only hits the elderly, it hits the disabled as well.

We need to start NOW to form a 3rd party - of Progressives & Liberals. Fuck these traitor Dems.

with THIS post of your OWN:
88. +1 .... Or a Worker's Party. We really have no one to look after our interests.

65. Gawd, I get sick of this regurgitated shit.

13% of registered Democrats voted for Bush.

200,000 registered Democrats voted for Bush in Florida.

81. The Bell

This forum split off from DU years ago. They started out as the Progressive Independent organized by Tinoire. Lots of lefty DUers have accounts there.

30. you won't get booted but this post belongs in meta.

And you can discuss leftwing politics here as long as you don't advocate for third parties.


On edit: we don't allow misogynist language, and we are working on misandrist language too. So go find a "leftwing progressive board" that allows one to spew that sort of shit, good luck with that.

33. Reminds me

of a long ago boyfriend. He thought himself clever in finding new ways to humiliate or insult. On our last date we went out to dinner, and on our way out of the restaurant he asked the hostess if she could recommend a "good" place to eat. Like I said, it was our last date.

45. Start a blog so you can control the environment

But beware of creating your own echo chamber. I get a fair few kicks from people on DU, and sometimes I learn something valuable from the process.

87. I don't get out much

But back on DU2 they had an alphabetized line up of links to other progressive sites. I don't see everything on the site because I post from a phone, right now, but I don't think that list is still here.

I complained to my son, about being blocked from a group, (back when I was still kevetching about it). Damned, if I can remember where else he said to go.


I can't quit you, DU. I'm hooked.

Run while you still can mister, run, or you may never make the break. Or stay. Find a similar thinker, all you need is one.

Your OP is commentary about DU and prohibited in GD. It belongs in meta and you might get more helpful discussion there.
