the Grass roots level information war - on Discussionist ---

A Conservative's propaganda post: Some People Just Want to Be Ruled, and Some Just Donít


and a Democrat's rejoinder post:

Right-wing authoritarians are people who have a high degree of willingness to submit to authorities

.. the fight goes on.

If you think, fighting disinformation is worth it, consider voicing your support to whatever posts meet that standard by commenting favorably on those threads.

"Democracy is worth fighting for". .. I said that.

(it's also good to have enough democrats (small 'd' intentional) to man juries when Cons 'alert' a comment, because it hurts their feelings - by asking for facts, documentation for assertions - but does not violate community standards- yes, this does happen.)

2. from your link



The truth is some (many) people just want someone to make decisions for them.


I call them fox news viewers.

3. Yep I posted on that thread. It is more interesting at DI.

It is clear who the other guys are and kinda fun pointing out their illogical and otherwise non-factual viewpoints.

Also, you do not see dems attacking other dems or having a "who is more liberal than who" contest.

DU is a great site for news and info but can be an echo chamber with a lot of preaching to he choir. Nice to get outside my comfort zone.
