Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Mon Sep 9, 2013, 08:38 AM

Listening to the news media this morning. Turns out, we aren't really totally opposed to war with

Syria after all. We are just "skeptical". We are anxiously waiting on Dear Leader to inform us more. We aren't overwhelmingly opposed, we are just skeptical.

1. Look deeply into my eyes...you're getting sleepy...very sleepy....

When I snap my fingers you'll awake refreshed and ready for a new war.

6. Last week, when I suggested that the media was inflating support

A few posters accused me of making it up.

Propaganda is not just "facts" poll numbers and misinformation. It's also persuasion. In this instance, creating a plausible bridge between No and Maybe.

7. Half the posters here wouldn't pass muster with the old DU...as in, DU of the years 2001-2009.

I wonder if the party has moved that far to the right, or if it's just a bunch of interlopers posting here to dilute our effectiveness.

10. you mean dilute your unanimity and unwillingness to hear any other views?

 

there have always been many willing to dissent from the madding crowd.

11. Oh, I'm just tired. Tired of the right-ward shift. Heck you could see it in black and white right

here on DU. It's frustrating to see your party steadily slipping away from you (me).
