It's like the cult has come full circle.
Started with attacks on Kucinich, then Dean, then Hamsher, now the cult is back to attacking Dennis Kucinich.

7. Obama is attacked here far more than Kucinich, Dean or Hamsher.

14. Shit, lately EVERY day has been Message Discipline LLC day on DU
And they aren't keeping it just in the one forum anymore. The hostile takeover of GD is well in effect, and by next week they'll be posting "DEAN AND KUCINICH WANT TO KILL AND EAT YOUR KITTEH!!!1111!!" threads all over the Lounge.

I agree that GD is definitely their new front in the message discipline war on "progressives"

on edit, less coarse.

26. ROFLMAO!!!!
Actually, yesterday saw a decided void of message discipline with an eerie silence pervading GD. I even remarked about it.

18. That might be because he's the actual president
and has actual power. What I continue to find ridiculous is how scared some are-or so hateful of someone like Dean or Hamsher. They have very little power. And can be destroyed so easily. Obama has the CIA and the pentagon behind him especially since he's giving them everything he wants. And the beltway. And big pharma. He's a popular guy.

But to the Obama fans-Hamsher and Dean and Kucinich are the real threats. It's absurd.

12. Which cult?
See, as a casual observer, I wouldn't notice that there was a cult. I'd just think "Wow, Kucinich is having a rough time, PR wise," and then, "Yeah, some people are down on Dean," etc. But since it's a cult, I guess all criticisms of everyone can be dismissed easily. That's good. That makes arguing a lot easier. When I don't agree with someone, I'll just point out that they are in a cult, and I can ignore them and any points they try to raise. That will help me feel better about myself and less prone to thinking about things and stuff. It's a wonder the Republicans don't understand how easy it is to dismiss all contrary facts and opinions by simply attaching insulting labels to people.

Not that I've been down on Dean or Kucinich lately. I have had criticisms of them in the past. I hope that doesn't mean I was in a cult, though. Cult sounds like such a scary word that I'd be tempted to give up my own independent thoughts to avoid being in one.
