3. Who said he was chased away by Clinton trolls?
I figured he was shocked at the lack on substance of Obama supporters. There is a reason y'all are begging for his return.

He got hammered because he compared Hillary to a lynch mob
it was a dumb analogy and he deserved his rebuke. There was no chasing and no calling him a racist. He was the one who used the racially inflammatory references.

...and I told him so, but never disrespectfully.

I have never attacked either candidate and I never will.

56. Perhaps they should - but lynching is a lot worse than racist comments.
The comparison was over the top and an insult to the memories of people tortured and murdered.

It was over the top, and H2OMan got called on it. He was asked to clarify his meaning in the thread, and he did - he defended it.

You do know that I'm messing with you at this point? I generally DON'T use THAT term for Senator Clinton's supporters - only for the troublemakers, like the ones who made a stink about Rev Wright's comments (even though such diatribes would receive a hundred recs in ANY other context here on DU).

80. It takes a lot of posts to get down to brass tacks huh?
I'm just tired of the automatic assumption that it's OK to call Clinton and her supporters any of a whole dictionary of insulting terms, so I've taken to responding in kind so that Obama supporters can see how "troll like" they are behaving. Yes, it ususally ends up as a joke - which is actually good since I would otherwise end up with a bad taste in my mouth. I assume you realize that the Wright episode hit right on the heels of the Ferraro episode in which Obama supporters were "making a stink". Can't we ever see what's really happening here?

69. Hard to imagine anything H2O posting that would do that - he's a notoriously cool head
and calm even in the midst of stormy debate.

If it was truly offensive, it had to have been a serious reaction gone astray, because H2O has a stellar reputation for being a calm, serious informer.

72. I was very surprised myself. Take a look at the post in question.
I was astounded, to be honest. And then several of us asked him in the thread to explain, and he didn't back away.

My personal opinion is that the constant barrage of nasty attacks got to him, he overreacted, and wisely decided to take a break from DU. I'm sure he'll be back and back to his old self eventually.

We all make mistakes. I don't hold it against him.

77. SaveOurDemocracy made it sound like she was banned
maybe not intentionally but "we lost MarrahG" sounded like a banning to me too (but I checked her profile and saw that she was not).

79. Nobody was banned. Don't believe everything said in this thread.
There are quite a view false statements being made in this thread. I recommend reading the thread in question and reaching your own conclusions.

54. How was it over the line?
Be very careful because H20 Man is a friend I treasure.

He pointed out Obama was being lynched in the media at the instigation of the Clinton campaign.

So now, please tell me, how is stating the obvious "over the line"?

68. That's not what he said. He compared the Clinton campaign to the lynching of black people.
That was offensive - especially to the memory of the people tortured and murdered by lynchings.

83. And that is exactly what I said:
"He pointed out Obama was being lynched in the media at the instigation of the Clinton campaign."

And knowing H2O Man, he did not do that lightly.

84. I disagreed with you then, and I disagree with you now ...

"Be very careful..." should I feel intimidated? :shrug:


I have neither the time, nor the inclination, to renew this flamefest. The only reason I even linked it was because of the bogus claim that he was chased off by 'Clinton Trolls'. It's seems more likely that he left because he was annoyed that his thread was locked.


People can read the thread for themselves, and make their own determinations.

89. Intimidated? I don't see why.

People can read the thread for themselves. Definitely.

Eta: H2O Man was pilloried for using a figure. And anyone who has read him or followed his work should bloody well know BY NOW that he would never use that particular figure lightly.

That's it.

Maybe we'll manage to resolve this.

64. Thanks for finding that post
It puts things into perspective much more so then the OP's blog. And after reading the reactions of people it was obvious to see the reason for the thread being locked.

71. Yes. The thread was locked because Clinton supporters
mounted a hissy fit which is probably more natural to them than thinking about his thread.

75. I notice that you conveniently ignore all the Obama supporters - like me - who also complained.
It's simply untrue to characterize what happened as a mob of Hillary supporters mounting a "hissy fit." As I recall you were one of the only posters on DU - out of tens of thousands of us - who defended the thread. And that's because it was indefensible.

85. So, am I to adjust my conscience by the numbers?
Is that what you are suggesting?

That thread was perfectly clear to people who could read it.

And now, back you go.

53. I'm an Obama supporter who was offended by a particular thread
comparing Hillary Clinton's campaign to lynchings of black people. I resent being called a troll.
