I can't believe how many DUers are willing to put up with these thugs
I can't believe how many DUers are willing to put up with these thugs that are now resorting to threats and violence to suppress us. Half these threads it seems some people are just genuine cowards and are fine being pushed around.

It seems the others on these threads who are fine with this think it's all shits and giggles. It will be shits and giggles until some of these thugs actually act on the threats they have made.

13. I know that

Come from a family with long line of union activism.

Thugs will be thugs, with or without a union. Most union people are very kind and empathetic.

edited to add: it is the OP I am worried about, not unions. There seem to be a few posters trying to get agreement to violence and I think they are NOT our friends.

3. Are you going to be a mirror image of the thugs and rant/scream your hatred and punch someone?
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 08:22 PM by stray cat
or should we just lock them all up without a trial?

What is your just and feasible and constitutional solution? Or are your advocating vigilante violence and civil war?

6. They get a trial
but yes, we lock the ones up who make threats of violence.

So far I have not seen one arrest. If these were democrats making threats during bush's reign of terror you can bet your ass they would be locked up.

11. Nope, I'm calling the cops
I want these ranters treated exactly the way Code Pink gets treated: escorted out and arrested.

Civil disobedience comes with penalties and it should be the case for all sides.

4. Most Dems are still in "political discourse" mode. This is a nascent civil war.
These dumbasses want a fight and they have corporate money behind them.

READ THIS. There is no John Kerry "rise above the smears" that's going to work. In fact it never has.

5. Um, I believe Skinner and Earl actually own the website, so we have to put up with them.
Besides, they're hardly thugs. They seem like nice young men to me.

7. The worse they get, the worse they look
Sadly, its a win for the Democrats. Ironic, isn't it?

10. Even more incredible than that
Some of the same people defending the teabagging disruptor clowns are the same ones who always take the right wing side of any argument. Indeed, some of them don't even try to conceal their motives anymore.

Just like their DLC/BlueBalled heros, I guess? Defend the repukes, condemn the Liberals as always. :puke:
