WillyT has been banned.

This isn't a grave dancing post, just an informational one.

--------------------------

MIR Team (EarlG) banned WillyT

Mail Message
Reason:
Doubled down on his infamous suggestion that black Democrats have Stockholm Syndrome, by posting an article which included the same suggestion (along with comments calling black Democrats "battered wives". The title of his OP was "Thank God I'm Not The Only One" and he bolded the Stockholm Syndrome comments to make sure everyone knew exactly what he was talking about. The first time he did this it was repeatedly explained to him by many members of this community that his comments were at best highly insensitive and at worst blatantly racist. Rather than learning from that experience he chose to double down.

444. Not Allowed To Say?

 

That a group of voters may be supporting someone who consistently votes against their interests? It may be presumptuous to assert people don't know what they are doing but calling it racist belittles actual racism does it not? I have heard many African-American leaders and activists agree so it's hardly seems out of bounds. People get swindled and hoodwinked into supporting counterproductive candidates all the time. Many agree Hillary is exactly one of these. I didn't read the post but the description just seems like more vitriol from haters from the Hillary camp.

Shame on all the people who want it back. This was always wrong.

The belittles actual racism. Many people get hoodwinked into supporting a candidate that screws them over. I can't read the op because it's gone. I will say this though.

Just saying what I've seen. Many people have been personally attacked on DU when it wasn't warranted. It's their fault if people are skeptical now. Is someone calls a person sexist for not supporting Hillarys NSA or War votes then I assert that's not "actual sexism". Actual sexism can be a multitude of things I hope you agree. The same would go for racism right? Or is the whole point just to suppress the discussion. I've seen it so bad that I seriously could see some of the usual suspects calling MLK racist or Angela Davis sexist. It just demeans the whole process. I didn't defend the post. I merely commented on what else I have personally witnessed.

Not surprising I guess. I know one thing...I never thought I would see the day that Bernie is labeled a racist which has occurred by your allies on numerous occasions. I recall very clearly when Hillary smeared Obama as being a radical Muslim in a turban. This is directly tied to the fact that he is Black and that imagery was exploited by Clintonites many of whom I would match my own involvement with civil rights against theres any day of the week. I like your comments mostly but not always but some of the company you keep makes me scratch my head. Of course I will vote for Hillary against Trump but I will hold my nose and be disgusted with myself. I will also fight for true liberals afterward which of course will be in direct opposition to that war-mongering, mass incarcerating liar. I will probably go back to supporting direct actions and protests in the streets where the only change ever occurs. I do know that many people I know will leave the democratic party and start a progressive party. Just the way it is and well deserved.

Bernie has never been labeled a racist, except for the straw man that his supporters built in order to deflect from Bernie's campaign's failure to connect with the Black electorate. Saying/noting that Bernie's platform/worldview prioritizes economic justice over social justice is NOT calling him a racist; saying/noting that Bernie's platform/worldview resonates most strongly among young, white, educated, higher than the median incomed males is not calling Bernie a racist; hell, saying/noting that Bernie comes off as racially clueless/clumsy is not calling him a racist.

I recall very clearly when Hillary smeared Obama as being a radical Muslim in a turban. This is directly tied to the fact that he is Black and that imagery was exploited by Clintonites many of whom I would match my own involvement with civil rights against theres any day of the week.


All of that is irrelevant to this discussion.

I like your comments mostly but not always but some of the company you keep makes me scratch my head.


I'm sure no more than your blind defense of the latest fallen hero of DU:progressives, has me scratching my head.

Of course I will vote for Hillary against Trump but I will hold my nose and be disgusted with myself. I will also fight for true liberals afterward which of course will be in direct opposition to that war-mongering, mass incarcerating liar.


That is good. And I thank you for your vote, should HRC in deed win the nomination. I will do the same should Bernie win the nomination, minus the histrionics and characterizations.

I do know that many people I know will leave the democratic party and start a progressive party. Just the way it is and well deserved.


Great. Maybe, we can form a coalition; but, honestly, I think that is more talk than fact. Building a party is hard work ... certainly more difficult than post stuff to the internet.

540. I Care About Results...Not Personalities

 

My biggest issue besides economic inequality and corruption is the perversion of the justice system. Mass incarceration and the drug war is what makes us a police state and mass spying is the tool as it is at the highest levels of our society where people's private data is used to blackmail them. Judges judge a certain way, journalists write a certain way, generals attack a certain way, attorneys argue a certain way, activists protest a certain way etc etc when they have personal information leveraged against them. This is why you see so many inexplicable flip-flops these days. Its called blackmail and it affects our leaders as much as it does low-level drug distributors. Our society is cracking. I have been around long enough to know Hillary is as much a part of the problem as any Bush (who she fawns over and is proud to be called an honorary member of their family). And Bernie was labeled a racist by many Clintonites on DU so you are wrong. And it is relevant that she exploited racist imagery against Obama in 2008...you are wrong there too. I'll be curious to see if the national security establishment takes out Trump. Bernie can still win as can Hillary and either will defeat Trump although Hillary has a bigger disadvantage there. The Rethugs are going to run a 3rd Party candidate. A lot can happen and Im curious what would happen if Clinton's email scandal gained more traction. I doubt it will because she is the only real ally of the security state left and they would be shooting themselves in the foot going after her. But the law is the law...just ask Petraus.

I have found that results are often directly related to personality. People tend to not support those they find "difficult" ... But I don't see how that is related to this discussion.

Nor, this:

Bullshit ... post a link to support your assertion. To avoid embarrassment, that post/link should probably not be a that of a Bernie supporter "interpreting" the "inference" of someone.

And it is relevant that she exploited racist imagery against Obama in 2008...you are wrong there too.


How can I be wrong about what I have not spoken on? (See the above, re: Bernie supporter "interpreting" the "inference" of someone.

Bernie can still win as can Hillary and either will defeat Trump although Hillary has a bigger disadvantage there.


Opinions vary.

The Rethugs are going to run a 3rd Party candidate.


And that's good thing for Democrats, and for me, personally, as it make easier the path for a Democratic presidency ... though it might make negatively affect the down ticket races.

But the law is the law...just ask Petraus.


There is a huge difference between what Petraus did and what HRC did ... I think it sad that the left, can't make the distinction; but, any port in a partisan storm, right?

But I can surmise what it's trying to describe. I don't see how either is racist in and of themselves though. I'm a cultural anthropologist and I can speculate about the reasons it's offensive from that perspective, but I'm not a psychologist nor am I a sociologist; so it would help me if someone who deems it a racist concept could take a moment to explain their personal feelings and thoughts on how it reflects a view that promotes one class of individuals as being better or worse than another?

Again, if you'd rather keep the entire topic off the public forum feel free to PM me.

and becomes something else entirely.

I am pleased that the admins lowered the boom. His racist views were hurtful and offensive.

Silly me. How judgmental!

When people say racist things, I make the grand leap that they are racist.

And noting it, pointing it out, and objecting to it, is NOT "pillorying."

It's taking a zero-tolerance policy to HATE.

People who don't want to be put on your imaginary little "list" and "purged" shouldn't say racist, hate-filled things.

Problem solved.

That's not silly .......... it's just plain disingenuous and damaging. You don't want anything to change or improve for millions, I get that - you've got yours. I have no problem whatsoever asking another woman (and I have, many times) why she can't bring herself to leave an abusive relationship and point out that there really is a well-documented reason that may partially explain it.

Exactly how those who don't get any personal benefit by helping women in abusive situations don't care at all about having them allowed the information they may not have, and very much need to be able to even begin to make changes that will help them live the lives they were meant to.

I also believe it's part of the same game that was begun since Sanders first announced - racist, sexist ........ whatever else could be thrown at him and his horrible supporters.

I've done well too, despite the very abusive headwind I faced - partly d/t no-one shutting up those people who helped me realize what I needed to know.

I actually stuck up for him out of some misguided sense of loyalty.

Look up the definition of the syndrome before you go crapping all over someone for mentioning the term.

Are you denying millions of battered and abused women suffer from the syndrome? If not, are you calling them deficient in some way? Let's get this straight!!!

I find real racists, homophobes and sexists abhorrent - I find those willing to stand by and demonize others for bringing up possibilities for why it might be happening almost as bad.

Are abused women who stay in relationships being demonized if told about a proven phenomenon that just may help them improve their chance at fucking living??

It's obvious you didn't follow the thread. What *you* believe is irrelevant...you do not belong to one of the minority groups affected. You think because it's not what YOU believe that others have no cause to be outraged. It's all about you and not the group being victimized. Demanding that I explain to you anything is b.s. It's your job to understand why so many of us were offended by the idiot.

You say others shouldn't be offended or hurt or mad based on YOUR definition. There are enough people on this board to dispute your definition and say they were offended. They told him that in multiple threads over multiple months. He did exactly what you are doing and dismissed that concern....even worse: doubled down like a spoiled child and played victim.

Not sure how you are finding the racist in your life, but I live in black skin so I encounter it regularly. You are defending a racist and that's fine...I'm glad to expose you.

So you are saying that POC have a sickness and that it is akin to battered wives because they don't vote for the candidate you like? Please tell me how deep that belief is...

Oh, and just in case you forgot:
Doubled down on his infamous suggestion that black Democrats have Stockholm Syndrome, by posting an article which included the same suggestion (along with comments calling black Democrats "battered wives". The title of his OP was "Thank God I'm Not The Only One" and he bolded the Stockholm Syndrome comments to make sure everyone knew exactly what he was talking about. The first time he did this it was repeatedly explained to him by many members of this community that his comments were at best highly insensitive and at worst blatantly racist. Rather than learning from that experience he chose to double down.

267. "Usual suspects?"

Suspects of what, exactly? You're apparently referring to DUers who oppose racism and prejudice. DUers who object to using terms like "battered wives" to refer to people of color who choose to vote for the candidate they prefer.

Of what are they suspected? Such opinions are actually quite progressive, after all. So, are they suspected of being progressives?

I don't think your statement is very clear, really. Also, the poster being discussed regularly searched for and posted just about anything available in opposition to President Obama, starting right after his inauguration in 2008. So, are the "suspects" to whom you refer supporters of our Democratic President?

See, I think that phrase is much misused by people who don't actually understand what it means.

I can't say I'm sad to see that poster gone from DU. I stopped reading most of his posts a long time ago. I grew weary of constant attacks on duly elected Democrats from questionable sources.

I suppose I'm one of the "usual suspects" you mentioned. I'm OK with that, though.

I jury a lot. I have seen hides on the right that were richly deserved and hides on the right that were ridiculous. However, I have also seen posts on this board and screen caps elsewehere by the right that said they were trying to drive us off the board. So, deliberate baiting from the right was going on. I never saw the counterpart of those posts on the left. And I saw posts on the left that never should have been hidden, too. I saw more posts on the left that never should have been hidden than I saw deserved hides on the left.

So either the left did not always control juries or jurors on the left were shooting down posters on the left for no good reason. I tend to think the latter was not happening.

I had no idea this person had been banned. Good Lord, I knew she was off big time but that explanation message from EarlG shows she was even more screwed up than I thought she was.

419. Hmmm - look at the reason given for her banning:

Reason Revoked by
Feb 8, 2016 Frequently on suspension for getting too many posts hidden by Jury, then sending abusive DU mail messages to other members. Final straw was harassing an Asian DU member with an unsolicited message insinuating that they weren't really Asian.


Gee - many of us know someone whom that description fits to a freakin' T! (Except for the specific details of a specific PM, of course)
Frequently on suspension for too many hides - check (and of her posts that aren't hidden, a large percent of them are posted just to stir up shit. she thrives on it, and has even admitted that she is only pretending to support a certain candidate in order to piss people off.)
Sending abusive DU mail messages - check

many people are aware of whom I am talking about, and we have wondered for months and months why she is still here - especially since, in addition to the 2 "sins" listed for angelfire, she has admitted that she is trolling.

WHY???

as well as endless entertainment to many others. I wonder why many people are still here as well.

So by all means, keep whining about her. Seriously.

113. Here you go, from the TOS.

 

Don't do anything else which is similarly disruptive.

Just because it isn't listed here, doesn't mean it's ok. If you post anything which is obviously disruptive, malicious, or repugnant to this community, its members, or its values, you risk being in violation of these Terms of Service.

If something is voted on by a jury and receives a vote of 7-0 to hide, I would say that the community has found it in violation of this very term. If someone has 6 hides in a day, and only received 8 votes total in their favor, i would say the community has definitely spoken that it violates the terms of service.

It was against the TOS and that poster was put on suspension, which were the terms until two days ago. I didn't say ban the poster, but exceptions to the TOS have obviously been made.

Is comment # 36 not "disruptive" or "malicious" or "repugnant to this community" ?
- 36. Yep. Let the fucking trolls out of their cages and watch the fun. -

"fucking trolls..." = other DU members, yes?
Is that not maliciousness aimed at other DU members?


How about # 52 ?
- 52. You're such a "special" guy. with puke "smiley" -
Malicious sarcasm, obviously.


And no, I'm not planning to send an alert as some DU members might.

You seem to have a good idea so I thought you could share some light on the posts that I quoted. To me, they seemed pretty "malicious" toward DU members and they do not reflect the "values" that DU'ers are to adhere to... Do you agree? Did you read those quotes?

I do believe you should have had to serve out your suspension though based on the quality of the hides. I can understand some people having questionable 4-3 hides and getting a second look. In your case, you received only 8 votes in your favor over six hides that contained fairly personal attacks. But, that's my opinion which is not shared by many or the administrators.

The fact is that people of a certain political stripe get much more leeway around here with their offensive posts and hides. I think we'd both acknowledge that right-wing types are easily banned-- and rightly so. But I'd say it extends to the left as well. I think it's fairly obvious, when you look at who gets banned here and who does not over the long haul.

,mind you, but piled up one or two at a time to get him to 5)

A good buddy of his, frequently on timeout but just got back from one before the brilliant amnesty went into effect, got a hide last night for a post saying "fuck you". That one also specializes in calling other DUers "motherfuckers" when he is feeling angry.

Then there are the ones who live just to stir the shit here...
