34. Thinking I would get some reasonable comments on DU about this...
I realize that this place has become freeperville, save for a few.

As an activist whose been in situations where I could ask some hard hitting questions, I've become emotional myself. It comes with the territory. I get the impression with the comments here that very few must actually get out there and do any more than sit in front of their computers. None of his questions were unreasonably stated and none of them could be construed as inciting a riot. That he expected to be able to stay and listen to the answers to those questions is also not unreasonable. To suggest that this was some sort of "set up" to embarrass Kerry, when he's already embarrassed himself by not acting on these issues that most DU'er's would agree with, is idiocy.

I cried when I saw this. It makes me sad everytime I see what a sham this "democracy" is. And it's worse when I see DU becoming more accepting of such anti-democratic, unconstitutional bullcrap...

:thumbsdown:
