1. But the pot stirrers claim they aren't stirring the pot.

They just want to “know”.

19. Yeah, that was me

 

I Googled it. If the person responding to my post had said "Qanon" I would have known instantly what they were talking about.

Listen, not everyone shares your political "acumen" and I have noticed since joining here a short time ago that many people here feel it's their duty to have new members banned.

I've been a Democrat longer than most people here have been alive. You, and by you I mean ALL of you, should be far more careful how you treat others on your side.

Remember what happened on election night 2016? I read DU every day for years. But suddenly, it was gone. And during that time I read comments from people on Facebook or whatever bullshit "social media" platform it was, that said DU got what it deserved for doing exactly what you people are doing to other Democrats like me now.

Listen, if you want a private club just hang the fucking shingle already.

If you don't like my line of reasoning consider this; I would be considered a moderate Democrat back in the 60s but after what's been done to this country since nixon I sound like a radical "shit stirrer" to you pseudo-60s-Democrats now.

Fair warning. Just like 2016. Lose me and you lose 2020.

23. I understand how you feel, and it will get better. There are so many trolls that people are hyper-

vigilant. Until you've been around a while it will be rocky, but hopefully people will come around and stop this nonsense.

33. Who are you to call Democratic Underground a "shitholeville"?


Hey everybody, if you hear nothing from me again it's because some fellow Democrat doesn't believe in free speech enough to argue the facts instead of protecting their little corner of shitlholeville.


Setting aside contentions about "facts", you call DU a "shitholeville" since that is what us DU members defend corners of.

Seeking martyrdom?

30. It isn't just Russians,

I posted about someone who I believe is behind the scenes, he is a friend of Alex Jones. He has posts on You Tube that end up being repeated on sites like Fox and others. The guy is Steve Pieczernik. 2 years ago he was talking about how Trump stopped Hillary's coup with a counter-coup. I truly believe he is one of the main propaganda people behind Trump. He loads the bullets. He walks in the shadows, no one talks about him.

Oh and this guy has a lot to do with Q'ANON.

38. Wow!

That almost sounded like a threat to not vote for Democrats in 2020, as in 2016?

If you've been around for years, I'm sure you know that the social media comments were not made by Democrats. Yes, this place is run in order to avoid shit stirrers and trolls. If one wants a place where trolls are welcome, it can be found everywhere online. Once a member has experienced the crap that MIRT has to deal with, it's easy to see why it's necessary. I'm sorry you're so unhappy here.

10. Too late,

it's already being repeated. The #1 right wing goal is to get Democrats to fight among ourselves.

You can't tell me that Bernie and Tulsi haven't been smashed to smithereens here? Joe Biden looks like he may be next on the list.

20. Also, try to distinguish between shit stirrers and valid criticism.

Otherwise you become just like Trump's call of "fake news" when anyone says something you don't like.
Very important.

37. You certainly do protest the sentiment of the OP.

Often and loudly. Righteously and dutifully.

From the bumper sticker down to the false premise you end it with.

Seems yours is little more than six of one as you rail against a half dozen of the other.

They seem to come out in droves this time of year, and they only increase the closer to the primaries. Over on the primaries board they do a great job of stirring things up every day!

By making the thread unreadable, they quite effectively bury the news therin.
