Response to DemocratSinceBirth (Original post)

Tue Jun 30, 2015, 10:49 PM

3. You have successfully run me off DU.

Not your post alone, of course, but because I respect your posts and it was you who posted it, it was "the straw that broke my back", my will to continue.

I cannot post on a forum where I'm accused of being a racist because I support the ideals and aspirations of Bernie Sanders, and try to defend Bernie Sanders against innuendo that he's either a racist or doesn't give a shit about racial issues. When I can't even rec a post lauding MLK, without being shat on as "cherry picking" or whatever crap-filled innuendo is being flung.

I respect your posts, and those of 1SB and others. I think you all have good hearts.

But I cannot continue to post on DU when discussion is under such an all pervasive noxious cloud, where I have no way to defend myself against slander against my character.
