Even though it's clearly against community standards.

Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: The post does not attack any DU member or the democratic party as a whole, just states the posters opinions....I don't like some of the things our president has done, but he has my support...we had greens here during the 01-04 period who made discussion lively...I don't see a foul Here IMHO...
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I don't see anything offensive here. So, the poster doesn't vote for Democrats. Convince them.

Quit feeding the trolls, people!

When you see an inflammatory thread made by a low post count poster, IGNORE IT, the troll who gets an angry reaction out of you is a troll who is winning at his/her job at making DU suck.

Mitt wouldn't pass a Turing Test.

He must be a robot with faulty AI.

Not liking an offensive movie is not an excuse to riot and kill people.

Why do these folks in Libya and Egypt think the US government has anything to do with an Israeli guy's offensive low-budget film?

9/11 has become the yearly 2-Minute Hate

Keeping people terrorized and scared so they continue to give up their civil liberties.

Lets not forget about that OTHER 9/11.

When a CIA-backed Fascist coup killed Chile's democratically elected president and put Pinochet in power.

"My Rapist Doesn't Know He's A Rapist"

The Wing-Nuts cannot comprehend statistics.

Of course, I think the vast majority of people don't comprehend statistics, but the nuts seem to be even worse than the norm. I realized that having a reasonable discussion with them is impossible because they put anecdotes like "If I can pull myself up by my bootstraps then everyone else can!" or "I once ran into a welfare cheat and therefore everyone who gets government assistance are cheats" above real data, statistical data is simply meaningless to them.

I believe it was Saul Alinsky who said that issues should be personalized into anecdote form, and this is why, the average person simply cannot comprehend statistics.
