Fire Walk With Me

Good LORD, they're out in force. [View all]

Earlier today I alerted on a poster for saying I sounded like a crazy homeless person, and it was let stand. Just now I had a post hidden which contains 100% facts, but facts unpleasant to Obama absolutists. And one seriously deranged jury message:

Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: Ordinarily, I wouldn't hide a post like this, since it's really just a difference of opinion, but Fire Walk With Me is such a stupid asshole propagandist that I will hide his nonsense on principle. Also, I think this will go 5-1 against the alerter, since juries are now stacked with the imbecile confederates of jackasses like FWWM, so I want to make sure they get the message that there are still some of us here who think moronic agit-prop like this is uncivil in the extreme.

(Just got called a Koch shill in another thread...they have no idea who their friends are and don't care, and somehow imagine this makes them both attractive and destined to win and lead...) FFS...

Edit: Any bad news means "their" president is imperfect and is not doing the perfect job they need to believe he's doing. Fuck consensus reality.

Edit 2: THANK YOU for the comments and conversation and support. It matters. Regards to all, keep fighting the good fight!
