You have squawked about the civil war many many times on this thread. As a matter of fact you are the only one saying it.

Then ,if we don't agree with your words, it's all over, have fun with the oncoming war?

Really, I have seen people on here accuse you of this behavior before but always respected you myself and would never have believed it.

I'm sorry to have to inform you that there will be no civil war.

I still believe the republicans are evil. If ever there was an evil on earth, it is them. Not so much the misguided Fox watching fools, but those in power, have evil intentions.

Party as a bunch of fascists.

I would challenge anyone willing to continue to give the Rape-publicans a break to name even one piece of positive legislation or policy put forward by the Rape-publicans in the past 30 years. It cannot be done, because it has not happened.

Maybe 'evil' is too strong a word. But 'disaster' is not.

When they correctly label them as fascistic?

Calling them and their agenda by its correct name shouldn't be shut down - it needs to be exposed. Why do you persist in condemning anyone who accurately calls them out for their reprehensible positions as perpetuating some kind of "otherism? (whatever that means)?

Cause their policies and many of their people really are.

That's just telling the truth. You seem to be trying to create some sort of malice on the part of posters - as though they are engaged in what? some kind of holocaust thing?

Its not demonization if there's demonstrable, tangible evidence backing the use of those terms.

Its almost as though you are trying to shut down critique.

but you believe that anyone who calls them out on that is crossing some kind of linguistic barrier?

That doesn't even make sense. And it smacks of censorship. Or you are deliberately constructing some kind of accusation to falsely accuse DUers of going down that route. Exposing the truth, critiquing policies - that's part of the democratic process. Accusing people who participate in that of emulating Nazi techniques is pretty unfair.

I see your problem there, you attach emotion to political philosophies...and I am saying this as the daughter of a holocaust survivor.

People themselves can be evil, policies can be, political philosophies are not.

Fascism is a radical right political philosophy.



Perhaps when you detach emotion we can talk rationally of the creation of the over and it's dangers to any society.

You are projecting there. As to the creation of the other, there are scads of academic papers on the subject, as well as a few good books on it.. You might want to check a few out of the library and read them. I am being like as serious as a heart attack.

The language I am seeing here s very reminiscent of that used by the Guatemalan far right about the Maya before the genocide started. Nothing more "amusing" than hearing stories of that nightmare from survivors. Lets just say they were similar to Eastern Europe a few decades earlier.

So yes, I am serious as a heart attack, and the other side is doing it as well.

You want to call them on policies? I am right besides you. You want to call them heartless...ok, you start to remove their humanity, you lost me...it as to do with what happens for real.

85. Paulo Freire’s “Pedagogy of the oppressed”

Freire’s words seem almost like a forewarning:

Dehumanization of the oppressed is a distortion of being more fully human, sooner or later being less human leads the oppressed to struggle against those who made them so. In order for this struggle to have meaning, the oppressed must not, in seeking to regain their humanity, become in turn oppressors of the oppressors, but rather restorers of the humanity of both”.

37. We have a cold civil war now

I don't think it will lead to a wide scale shooting war. But it is just as serious a division, and shutting up about it is never good. Don't worry I feel like I AM on the front lines of the cold Civil War.

I'm talking historical--25 years in one state is historical. I have never seen or heard of a reported case of Dem suppression or tampering (not even sign-stealing or vandalizing). I have seen it many times from Rethugs. Just this past weekend near here someone went through a whole neighborhood and spray painted over all the Obama yard signs, for example. This is commonplace. But I'm more worried about the evil at the upper crusty end of the Rethug party--the ones who own the machines and the media. It is clear that they WILL steal and attempt to steal elections. Now. In the present. Never mind history.

Anyone who hasn't jumped ship from the Rethugs now is either Fuxed over, lo-info, or greedy unethical rich. It's an unholy union, corrupt to the core. In my mind corruption on the scale we are seeing is evil. Check out the "Voter Integrity Project" in North Carolina--Rethuglican effort to disenroll people. Some people even received letters stating that they were dead.

We can agree to disagree on this. But you'd have to give me some concrete evidence of current Democratic party cheating to counter the extensive list of things I have seen from the R side-- to have a hope of getting me to sing Kumbaya today or any day.

The Rethug party as it is today--is ethically challenged. Dems OTOH usually do the right thing, and I'm sure sometimes they fail, but their record is far superior. It's a clear choice.

60. So Libruls should shut up

cause "they" got guns?

Somehow if civil war breaks out, I actually do think Obama and the well-armed Armed Forces WILL save me & I won't have to try to shoot anyone myself (--if you knew me you'd laugh at that idea, altho I'm pretty good with darts).

My words are my only weapon and I will always use them when appropriate. To "shhhsssh" people is like going back to the McCarthy era, if you like history. I don't believe in being silenced like that. (Or more recently look at those in media & govt who were too cowed to take a stand against the WMD snowjob). Do you want DU to be PC or do you want it to be about freedom of expression? If you can't say what it is we're up against here, where can you say it?

You can't "turn the other cheek" towards people who refuse to do that for you. And referring to their practices as evil and corrupt is not too harsh when it is clearly apparent. Anything else is agreeing to live in fear.

I am not engaging in "Otherism" across the board. I lay the majority of the blame for the cold civil war at the feet of a few greedy rich guys & their corrupt followers, a few Christians in Name Only, a few media moguls, and a few rightwing agitators (i think we know who they are). I think it's OK to call these people evil masterminds. EVIL.

The average middle class & poor folks who have been brainwashed and scared and robbed --and still call themselves "Republicans" -- they are not the Other. They are victims.

So what would you suggest. OTHER than chilling, being silent? How did I misunderstand you? You are telling people not to use the word "evil" in connection with Rethuglicon. That seems like avoiding the truth.

83. I've read it,

& I think you need to talk to some Rethugs and other right wingers about "otherizing." I am only speaking against them in self-defense. I don't hate people but I do call them at their hateful behavior.

"Fascists are not evil." -- well I can go with calling them sick malignant psychopaths, but I don't get there's much difference.

Evildoers are evil.

This is giving me a headache--maybe we can take it up later, since we agree on the extent of the problem--but you want to argue names for it? You'll have to convince me that some hardcore Rethuglicon really cares what I call him/her. (No personal put-downs tho--that's otherizing to me).

Doesn't mean I have to "forgive them, they know not what they do." They know very well.

Sometimes you have to try to root out evil where you see it. Predatory hateful behavior in humans is like poison ivy--it just keeps sprouting up and all you can hope to do is knock it back.

I'm looking for a better quality of human in political office. So of course I don't expect Rethuglicons to fill the bill. (Not talking about ye olde moderate Republicans--(a dying breed) --am talking the new Rethuglicons who would destroy the country before they'd compromise with Obama--and who steal elections by every means possible, in broad daylight).

12. Seriously

We still have the rule of law and the most votes wins.

The only way that Romney could challenge the election is if it was very close and even in that case, they have to at least have a semi-credible legal case for them.

I hope you enjoy the "honor and glory in it". This thinking is dangerous to the extreme, and given the "other side shares it" you confirm why it/ coming. I hope you enjoy it.

romney will not concede, even after we cross the 270 number, unless that number goes well into the 300s.

Unlike Democrats, the gop concede nothing close. It's one of the benefits in living in a self-created reality.

But I agree, "rules" don't come into it.

51. I'm nervous they're using Hamilton County OH as a predictor....

when it is one of two (out of 88) counties in OH that use Hart Intercivic voting machines:

Tagg Romney's private equity firm, Solamere Capital, is invested in another private equity firm called H.I.G. Capital. A little over a year ago, H.I.G. invested heavily in Hart and took over its board.

-snip

That said, several top executives at H.I.G. are what's known as bundlers for the Romney campaign, according to a database created by USA Today using data from the Sunlight Foundation. That means they have raised tons of money for Romney. There are also three H.I.G. executives on the board of Hart InterCivic, and two of them have donated to Mitt Romney's campaign (though one gave to both Romney and President Obama in the last election cycle).


http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2012/11/02/164205676/is-romney-son-gunning-to-steal-ohio-vote-by-rigging-voting-machines

Proprietary source code in machines shown to be vulnerable to tampering owned by a GOP controlled business with so much power & money in stake make me sick to my stomach.

and egotistical and power-hungry that I'm not sure that he will concede even when it's apparent that he's losing or has lost. He will probably have great difficulty grasping the fact that the great unwashed masses just don't want him, that all the billions at his command didn't work, and that he's lost to a black man.

I've read your posts about "other-ism" and although there is some truth to it, I think that you just don't get how evil many people in the Republican party are.

And no, I don't think that this will lead to a hot civil war. Present some recent evidence that it might and perhaps I'll consider your point of view. Otherwise, it's really just assertion on your part.
