10. Last time Will posted about Andy
The comments were utterly vile. I can imagine what the deleted ones were like.

Edited on Thu May-26-05 07:26 PM by Stephanie

Who have nothing better to do but plot against a hospital patient who's fighting for his life. It's inexplicable. I've never met anyone this cruel in real life. Who can explain it?

the Bush triblism and plans for the world can work. If Americans loose empathy.

86. Just picture them sitting all smug and pious
in Church on Sunday telling everyone how christlike they are before they sneak back home to masurbate over their hate porn against anyone who dares to see the world differently.

Picturing them like that usually lets me laugh off most of what they say.

I use my vote and my donations to help cancel the rest out.

Btw, how is Insoo?

65. For What It's Worth
I think this is the best approach. I'm agnostic on the whole Andy thing, but I have followed it out of sociologic interest. This cutting off conversation about it is not the way to go, it just makes things look fishy, not to mention how authoritarian and conservative an approach it is. Let everybody speak and it'll go away. Cut off conversation and it just festers. Fact is, Andy put his medical condition out there to raise money, so the situation is fair game for discussion in the village square.

pda is for business and they should leave Andy alone and you, well all of us.

Will is being attacked now and
Andy. I know some of the pain from being jumped on at kos over the fundraising, too.
Beth as been treated horrifically and deserves not one second of it.
Here at DU though almost all love and I cherish DUer's for helping Andy and working together as much as possible.

It's a cathartic exercise that helps me laugh at the monsters under the bed. My anger gets channeled into the kinesthetic process of painting and when it's all done, I get to laugh my ass off! :D Really! I laughed for hours last night at the Curious George pic, even as I was making it. :rofl: ... Free entertainment! :)

26. Take Heart, I watched a show recently featuring
3 well known Dr.s of psychology and psychiatry, plus a profiler. They were discussing serial killers. Reporting on their long experience with people who are sociopaths and psychopaths. What struck me, is what one of the Dr.s said about this type of personality. "People try to understand them and what made them this way. But what people really have to understand, is that they are not human" The others agreed. It is hard to wrap our minds around these freepers. I believe many of them are not human and never have been.

31. You're not the only one, Will
Several of us who love and support Andy are being "stalked" by geniuses.

One of mine says he's spent two entire weeks digging up dirt on me and knows me better than my husband does.

Which means he took the information I made public on purpose and then, he googled me. Why not just email? My addy has been plastered all over the net. He must have one SLOW connection. :eyes:

(And, btw, Anne Frank was right. Because out of countless emails, only three individuals turned out to be one of these geniuses.)

Not sure what the answer is, but I'm not changing course anytime soon.

Edited on Thu May-26-05 10:45 PM by chalky
stating that those ISP numbers are available to you I wonder how soon it would take the scum to stop with their drive-by postings? Because, along with being sociopaths, all these pigs share another trait--they're GUTLESS BASTARDS.
They'd all piss down their legs if they realized that the venom they spewed could be traced back to them.

because they were off-topic.

It does serve a purpose. It creates a billboard for why we have to win. Right now, the sentiments in that post are the ruling mindset of this country. People need to see it for what it truly is.

47. I obviously don't have anything in common with their politics, but
I cannot fathom how anyone could be party to that sophomoric action. If they were fundraising for one of their own, I would at least respect them for that. I probably wouldn't be much motivated to help, but I certainly wouldn't be pulling that juvenile shit. But maybe that's the point...maybe, what we are seeing here are a bunch of 14 YO's doing what they do best, being incredibly juvenile. If they are adults, they certainly have emotional issues that they need help with.

Pretty pathetic....but precisely the level of behaviour that I've come to expect from the posting community at FR. I guess when your party's politicians and politics have lost their collective moral compass, why should we be surprised that the rank-and-file are unable to find their way along the path of common decency?

I'm glad you left it up. You should also link to that thread at FR. People should see what passes as conservative thought and conversation today. It's no wonder this country is in the mess it is today. Yeah, "the adults" are in charge, alright.

I'd rather lose every election between now and when hell freezes over, then ever associate myself with the 'winners' who inhabit that echo chamber.

49. Will, much as I admire your civilised efforts,
why do you try to argue with these morons? Delete their comments and block their ISPs, which are probably the only dynamic thing about them.

"Shush junior - grown-ups talking" is the only language they understand.

what the point is of providing space for these hateful jealous morAns to smear their own shit on the walls? They have their boards where they can pretend to one another that they are "smart" (while ignoring all facts and information presented to them).

I am stumped as to the point of giving them air space.

THIS is who's been attacking Andy, attacking us for helping Andy, attacking Dan Rather, attacking Hillary Clinton, attacking John Kerry, attacking Newsweek. Let's see them for what they are - hardly human. It's a fight to the death and they've proven it. Bring them out into the sunlight - they can't survive.

writing of their own words.

If I were Will I'd complete the cycle and link back to the FR thread where they are slapping themselves on the back for such a great group effort they are doing with this.

It's obvious that they hatred is so evident, one has to wonder if it's a clinical mental sickness. Or maybe they are just a bunch of 14 YO's who just got connected to the Internet.

A true patriot is someone who is working for Verified Paper Ballots to ensure that we remain a democracy. He manages to do his important work while he is fighting cancer. GO ANDY!


Some people have cancer of their body organs. That is curable.

Some people have cancer of the soul. That is what the graveyard rats have, and that is despicable.

72. These people are "spiritual" cousins to the ones that burned the crosses
Edited on Thu May-26-05 10:09 PM by Nothing Without Hope
in North Carolina. I put "spiritual" in quotes, because it's hard for me (in my far-from-Buddha-nature condition) to imagine them as spiritual beings--far moreso than it is for violent animals, which are part of nature. Here is a thread on the NC cross burnings. In other Westboro protests,

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...
Thread title: Fred Phelps comes to my town. He spurs crossburnings against CHURCHES.

Here's part of the news report from that thread:

http://www.365gay.com/newscon05/05/052605kkk.htm
(snip)
"The first (cross)burning was reported at 9:19 p.m. outside St. Luke's Episcopal Church near Interstate 85.

A second was reported at 9:54 p.m. about a quarter-mile south of Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway. The cross was positioned atop a large pile of dirt near an apartment complex construction site. (edit: This is near an AIDS group home.)

The third was reported at 10:28 p.m. at a downtown intersection. (edit: This is near another Episcopal Church in town.)

St. Luke's was one of several churches picketed early this month by members of Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., as part of a protest against the performance of "The Laramie Project" at Durham School of the Arts.

The play is about the murder of Matthew Shepard, and the Westboro protesters carried anti-gay signs with slogans including "God Hates Fags" and "Thank God for 9/11."
(snip)


There are always insane people who will do unspeakable things if they get the chance. Under this government and its encouragement of the siege by the Fristians, this slime feels empowered and - always anonymously or under the cover of darkness - spreads its poison and violence.

Yes, showing what they do for all to see is a good idea. You don't respond to them directly - you reveal them for what they are.

And collect and trace those IP addresses!!!

away from the thrall of the Fristian extremists. Polls already show great uneasiness about the power of the crazy RW fundie friinge in this administration, and many top people are obviously beholden to them.

We need to expose them for what they are. This will NOT be a theocracy, no matter what those hate-filled crazies believe. Use this as a clarifier and motive force.

DON'T GIVE UP.

116. Good fucking question
I checked into the blog this afternoon, and discovered that 'they' had spammed the whole board with claims that the cancer claim was a fraud, etc. They hit every post 4 or 5 times. Finally pissed me off, so I put this up so they could focus on one thread instead of poisoning the whole blog.

I had no idea it would be this vile. This, you see, is desperation. The ones who pushed the 'Andy scam' thing are now at loose threads. Rather than fade quietly, they decided to erupt.

Fine with me. I have their ISPs and their words. They are a billboard for why we have to win.

91. Aside from it being Andy
I wonder if many of them have the belief of the person who wrote about passing the hat for himself and said (wont happen, because some of us work for a living)

In their dream world all jobs offer health insurance and no one looses their jobs?
About 80% of the uninsured adults are employed. In this new world fewer employers offer insurance or have the copay so high that many can no longer afford it. They are more apt to offer it only to full time employees and keep most employees "part time" by a few hours. Unemployment doesn't leave enough to pay for Cobra.

Maybe they can be so cold about these things because they really think it is the lazy.

Yep, those people without real jobs have always been bums. Like Jesus, dude didn't hold down a real job.

Why are people who are uninvolved concerned about Andy's donations? Even if this was a "scam", which I don't believe it is, what business is it of theirs? And who are they to demand answers?
Are they really just trying to make DU look bad, and if so, isn't this a lot of effort for nothing? This effort to discredit DU and Andy has just as much a chance of boomeranging back on them and making them look despicable

Just another interesting proof, bush's base is the Psychopath demographic.

Uppityperson said it, downthread, and in my experience with the predator-sociopath I mentioned above, it is the absolute truth: They FEED OFF the attention. Doesn't matter if you blast them with your very best ammunition, doesn't matter if its incontrovertable fact, they merely use it to fuel their hate. Its the ATTENTION they crave. Believe me, I was targeted by that predator I mention and did some extensive study on the matter of ghouls like this.

I know its frustrating as hell!! Been there, done that!

But leave the ugliness up for any normal people to see and judge. Its not hard to see the truth of the matter. What they really hate is to have their lies and filth exposed. I hope to see WillPitt and anyone else in a position to, to use this crap as evidence.

117. at the core of all of this for me is this:
I gave a dollar to a homeless person yesterday. I don't care how he spent it, once I made the decison that I could live without it, I did.

I would rather give, and hope it went towards something good, than not give, and the man starve.

That said, I believe Andy. I believe you.

and I abhor freepers.

Should there be transparency, sure, but we all knew what we were getting into from the beginning. It was all about trust, period. This was a rush job for one reason, it was an emergency. anyone who feels duped shouldn't have given in the first place, imo. I am happy I did.

149. Yep, that's exactly how I am
when I give away money, I give it freely and with hope and caring. Then I forget about it.

I wonder what's wrong with these people? What sad, awful creatures they are.

121. I need a shower after reading these comments
But it is interesting to see how they work in clusters, and the reasoning used.
It is kind of a micro-cosmos of the neocon/repub movement; how they work to create doubt and how low they allow themselves to sink.

Someone should write a book about this.

150. And, it has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus
What we did here for Andy, now that has plenty to do with Jesus or at least his fine teachings.

BTW, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'm actually a pagan, but since we have many Gods, I let Jesus into my pantheon. Yahweh, I don't because he doesn't know how to play well with others. Much like these graveyard rats.

131. To spend their time reviewing our posts just to ridicule
Edited on Fri May-27-05 08:40 AM by Evergreen Emerald
Is so disturbing to me. The energy it takes for them to hate so profoundly--as evidenced by the anger of their posts--is stunning.

They have created a whole web-site dedicated to the promotion of hate and ridicule. What is their fuel? Anger? Psychosis? Fear? Stupidity?

I read the responses on Will's website and they made me a little sick. And sad--for them and for America. Because these hate filled, closed minded people are the ones currently running our country. They have bought into the neo-con agenda and indeed promote it without realizing that the agenda they scream from the top of their pick-up trucks is screwing them and their families.

They tout christianity while acting in the most unchristian like way. They denounce "liberal" without knowing what liberal is. (another example of spewing in lemming-like fashion the neo-con agenda without knowing what it means. If Rush says liberals are bad, then they will hate them). There lack of understanding and unwillingness to think past what they are told is terrifying.

What sorry people they are. These are bullies who alone sound like nuts, but who together reinforce a culture of hatred and anger and isolation that is dangerous to America. They are sick pathetic people who need to crawl back under the rocks from whence they came and shut the fuck up.


Edited for spelling.

146. This is not a criticism but
Will has shown himself to be honestly and emotionally vulnerable to the BS. Everyone is to some degree. These people are equal opportunity disrupters wherever there is an Internet forum but to be graced by a gang visit is a compliment of their concern more than anything they have to say - which is practically nil. I am nearly positive, in spite of their sticking to a party line propaganda language, that some are VERY busy camping out in pairs at forums all over wherever there is little weeding being done. But it almost makes no difference since the attack is always the same, the facts spewed and the argumentation and the insults and whining- not to mention the shouting of the lousy spellers. When you are "up there" trying to make your points you are always ripe for sandbagging by people cleverly looking for a disruptive opening. Being a teacher helps, but with no classroom presence to deal with I'd merely red-ink their efforts and send them packing.

In the end, since the cowards disguise most of their real motivation, they must be treated like any over the top kid shouting and flaming in the chat room. Children trying to get attention by being abusive cannot obviously be granted what they wish and are the most difficult to deal with- especially hard in an anonymous invisible medium.

Playing fast and loose with both facts and emotions is a technique- not a reasoned position. I much prefer the moderation at DU which does not pretend to be ironclad or perfect so that no false sense of consensus and security makes us lazy or smug. At the same time we are pretty much in control of the situation in so far as we really earn it.

I have not followed other bloggers much to understand how they singlehandedly deal with the dumploads of garbage they must receive daily. Probably should get together and share notes sometimes. Imagine how journalists feel about getting this stuff versus calmer intellectually sound critiques(which can be dismissed airily) when they are not aired in public as with open blogging. Death threats sometimes are not as emotionally troubling though they come from the same crowd.

It is very bad for the stomach to wander into a conversation with these
types- and they know it. That is there sole rational power in the argument. That plus the difficulty in playing by their "rules" without fast fact checking and support.

134. I think some are just trying to get a reaction from us.
I read various sites and blogs and I'm fully convinced there are some RWers out there who just say things to get a reaction just for kicks. At first glance I didn't notice, but the more I read some of the responses I get the impression that's a lot of what's going on. Like I said on a similar thread, this site is nothing but a freak show for them.

136. They can't help themselves, Will
Truly a manifestation of mental disease. What they are attempting to do and their words are nothing short of disgusting. They need help and are crying out for it.

They really should embrace the ideology of personal responsibility and get the professional psychological help they need to become sane.

140. Thanks for leaving those comments up, Will!
Nice to see their psycho comments. Wish some 'liberal media' paper would publish them, or any of that crazy freeper stuff... but no, apparently the 'liberal media' only cherrypicks lunacy from left wing boards to excoriate.

Funny, that.
