The McCarthyite nonsense that sometimes rears its ugly head here is just offensive. As it happens, I've never felt any affinity to the DLC, but so what if I did? When we have people here taking notes on who's voting to recommend a satirical post, we're emulating the worst kind of crap from the right.

People shouldn't be forced to march in lockstep on DU- or anywhere else, for that matter. There shouldn't be the type of group think pressure that insists that if you disagree with the conventional thinking of the DU mainstream, you're some kind of traitor.

Honestly, if you can't tolerate opposing opinions at all, if you're constantly accusing people of being DLC or not being the "right" kind of liberal or progressive, you're betraying liberalism, not standing up for it.
