Forcible Harmony: Moral or Immoral?

I wonder if one would get into trouble on DU3 for ponifying the following? Incomplete BTW



OH SHIT where's DAIN BRAMAGED? ;_;

I can't take credit for the original art btw

1. The latter is a contentious DU3 meme, btw.
That image kept getting posted and rebutted
with similar pictures. So... instant flame bait.

Ironically, I never learned what the fascination
people had with ponies at the time was. I didn't
get the (hurtful) reference to liberals vs centrists.

Something about dissatisfaction with Obama... @_@
Perhaps the ponified version is friendlier

6. I think the center right folk at DU3 would like it.
Edited on Thu Nov-01-12 01:09 AM by No Elephants
They've been saying for years that the liberals who thought that Obama should have at least tried to keep his campaign promises expect too much from Obama.

So, the girl praying to a superhuman deity for her pony and a blue pony reminding the ungrateful brat that Obama is only human would, I think, fit in very well with the center right DU3ers. Not sure the liberal DU3ers--those who are still there, anyway--would love it, but they don't matter.

We're center right now.

15. Heh, that meme has been all over the map - with Obama critics on DU3 calling centrists "pony lovers"
When in fact that's what the "sensible centrists" were calling the Obama critics back in 2010.

In the case of the OP, my image could be taken either way... I didn't want to suggest Obama was a "show pony", especially not so close to an election.

3. A miserable pile of friendship.
But enough talk; have at you!

* A small, irreducible collection of Dark Matter.

* A critic of the Obama administration (because we want a pony instead ;-) )



Equal time to all viewpoints. That's my motto...

7. Oooh. I would stay away from magic.
Google "Magic Negro." IIRC, it started as an essay by an African American (maybe Spike Lee? Memory fails me on names, but not substance) about racism in how people of color are portrayed in film and literature. After Obama got nominated, though, the RW, including Limbaugh, turned it into a "racially-charged" attack on Obama.

Side note: isn't it amazing how Democrats even change language to accommodate the loudmouth RW?

8. But you don't understand
the only way for Obama to pass progressive legislation is to give the right what they want

13. I kicked it, so it is on the first page, today, anyway.
Sadly, I started the thread as DU 2ers were dwindling even more, so there are not as many replies on the thread as there otherwise might have been.

14. Hey, NYC!!! I just posted an "I'm back" thread on DU3.
Edited on Fri Nov-02-12 12:13 PM by Leopolds Ghost
I posted it on GD -- http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021692202

But for some reason I know fewer people there than I did last fall, which isn't saying much.

I posted here on DU2 first after a long absence from the internet (due to Occupy):
