Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

There is a fake Democrat on my ballot.

This is election time here, and in Oregon we vote by mail, so we get some time with our ballots. This morning I started marking my choices, starting with my third vote for Barack Obama who takes this precinct and district by huge percentages. Also easy to cast my vote for our great Sec of State, Kate Brown, Kate was elected in 08 as well, and she's rocking the office.
Now the spot for our House Representative in Congress has some rat fucking going on. Our sterling Democratic Rep Peter DeFazio has a 'Democratic challenger' in the form of one Matthew Robinson, who registered as a Democrat merely to fuck with DeFazio. Robinson, like many others, is willing to make false claims and push those claims all the way to the ballot. Robinson is the son of DeFazio's Republican challenger, Art Robinson. Many DUers across the nation got to see Art interviewed by Rachel Maddow in 2010, when Art had sacks of out of state mystery money to go after DeFazio. Here is a link to that display, go Rachel...note Robinson's tactics.


Now those sacks of mystery cash are partly in the hands of Robinson Jr, who is suddenly a 'Democrat'. Here is a link to Matthew Robinson's website. Again, note the tactics..the ease with which he presents himself as one of 'us'.....

Now here is a link to Peter DeFazio's website which addresses the Robinsons and the Fake Democrat on our ballots.

So there you go. Robinson says he is a Democrat. He is not. He's on our ballots, and while most Democrats in this district will reject his insulting campaign, some will fall for it, buy into it, and support this guy. Think about that.
Some folks will claim they are what they are not, in extreme and public ways, in order to serve their political agendas. Let none of us forget that.

3. Creepy, dishonest, you name it....

And a number of people will vote for him, for they will simply buy the line of bullshit he's pushing.

2. Robinson is the ultimate paid shill. His interview with Maddow exposed him ....

... to the world. I remember it well. Instead of responding to her questions, he attacked her with a viscousness rarely seen outside of war- and crime-zones.

4. I don't think he is a real scientist...

I also think he is either lying or Cal Tech is the worst place to get any kind of science degree from.

5. This is one of the main reasons many have proclaimed there is no difference between the parties.

Voters that ignorantly vote a straight ticket, without much thought or research, have put these fakers in for several decades now.

There are no real "blue dogs"/DLC; they are republicans undercover.

6. I agree, they are stealth (R)epublicans in (D)rag, remember

Koch Industries gave funding to the DLC and served on its Executive Council

http://www.correntewire.com/why_its_feature_not_bug_koch_family_funds_dlc

There is no more DLC some say? Don't forget one of their favorite nom de plume identities, Third Way


And make no mistake about the role of Third Way. In Congress, staffers attend regular Third Way policy briefings, where the group hands out pre-packaged legislative amendments in legal form, generic press releases, polling around those policy ideas, and talking points. It’s a soup-to-nuts policy apparatus. Most of these ideas are harmless – like increased volunteerism – but some are not, like various tax proposals.

The group has enormous juice. On the Congressional side, it has six honorary Senate co-Chairs http://www.thirdway.org/co_chairs

Here’s Third Way praising the Gang of 6 talkshttp://www.thirdway.org/press_releases/165 , opposing cut, cap, and balance, encouraging entitlement cuts http://www.thirdway.org/press_releases/164 , pushing various free trade agreements http://www.thirdway.org/press_releases/161 .

There is a false flag operation going on that has as it's goal passing GOP laws as Democrats, they get the right wing legislation passed, and the Democrats get the blame because of the false flag.

Great set-up if you are a Republican infiltrator.

7. Crossfiling has screwed things up also and allowed the stealth take over of the Democratic Party.

Sneaky rotten bastards.

And where the hell did the Third Way come from? It's like the "super" electoral votes bullcrap.

We need a fresh start.

10. You should send this to ThinkProgress, Maddow and other progressive sites

Sites like this love to suss out this kind of deceitfulness. Amazing. This is just amazing.
