CapitolHill will close today.
I'll say it, I'm glad to see it go because it's time to unite behind our wonderful new President and leave the past behind us. Hate can only get in the way of the job we need to do now. While I was never a member I know it provided an outlet for others - but that time has gone and it's a new day in our country. It's a sign of coming together to do the hard work we must all do. Adieu.

1. They're not going to unite around the president. Just read the messages.
They're still the same bitter fools they were before he took office.

2. This message from their admin is telling:
"I'm not unhappy just because people disagree with me. I'm unhappy because it has turned into nothing but an echo chamber of people who hate Obama. Everyone who dissents with that constantly posted hatred have left or keep quiet. If the administrator doesn't even feel free to express a dissenting opinion without being blasted how in the world would anyone else feel free to dissent?"

23. Actually, I never left DU
I am unabashedly a supporter of Hillary Clinton and enjoyed being able to discuss her with other like minded people on Capital Hill. I also liked checking in with DU on a daily basis as I have been doing for years.

I do not wish Obama ill, but still have my opinions on who would have made a better president. I believe I do still have that right.

I have been a DUer for many years, and plan on staying here until I want to leave, or the ptb ask me to leave.

posts so don't say you don't wish him ill. You didn't even vote for him which makes one wonder why you are here. Your vote for McCain should have banned you from this site.

24.  We were assured by BV, CH's administrator, that she had never
banned anyone from CH, and since she is an Obama supporter, I find your remark questionable. Perhaps you were banned for another reason, and didn't realize it?

27. Personal experience: That is not true.
I was banned right after Palin was nominated for saying I didn't understand how any woman could vote for someone pro-life and so rabidly anti abortion. Their security was such though that it was easy enough to open another account. The discussion there was pathologically anti Obama. It was a disgrace.

I was indeed banned as were a few other DUer's.

Seeing as I was banned after posting here that I did not agree with what some people were saying over at CH about Obama, I was left to assume that was why.

16. Maddie Joan
She posted a lot of things that made me question my prejudices. A lot of things were said in the heat of the primaries but maddie held on until being TS'd.

A lot of good people left around the time of posts like "Strange Fruit Campaign". I remember it all felt like life and death.

I was hangin out at barackobama.com through the February primaries.

Wonder how many people might have come back since then or if not, where they are now....

25. Sadly, maddie joan died a couple of months ago. She was missed.
I will repeat, I am not new and have remained at DU on a daily basis since joining in 2002. I had a difference of opinion with many on this board, but did not express that in a hateful way after the nomination was secured.

29. Oh, no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I liked Maddie a lot and wondered where she had gone. I didn't know that she had passed away. Although I remember her saying once that she had been ill. I didn't want to pry, but wished her well.

I'm so sad that she's no longer with us and that she was so young too.

My condolences to her family and loved ones.

21. I got banned for saying that voting for Obama was a
"no brainer".

Instead of being a pro Hillary site the focus became exclusively anti-Obama.

By the end that site had been taken over by some really fucked up people - I think a lot of them were actually Republicans...

26. While some of the posters at CH might have disagreed with you
and expressed something to you in disagreement, I will repeat, that as soon as Obama was nominated, the administrator of CH would never have banned anyone for being pro-Obama, as she was, herself, pro-Obama. Perhaps you were banned before his nomination was secured? I only know that this is part of the reason that the forum was disbanded. That being said, I will not go into any more of this discussion about CH. We are not limited to one board, and should not have to explain our reasons pro or con for joining another board.

It turned into an anti-democratic and anti-Obama site where posters regularly called Obama a commie and a pinko and even promoted the birther nonsense.

51. I'm sorry to hear that :( CH was a "democratic" site, if you noticed...
Most who felt unwelcomed here, moved on. It wasn't just about Obama, trust me. I have many DU friends I've met on other boards, blogs and forums, who are simply growing, not hating. geesh. Stop your (generic) cantankerous, hate spewing comments towards people...you.simply.don't.agree.with.

I'll continue to read DU, there are some bright and inspiring people here. I want to support some threads that do call some of Obama's policies into question, but choose to discuss them elsewhere. Like an adult :silly:

Here's a mission statement from one of them, and they're country before party, btw:

********* members are like most Americans. We are the moderate people from every political party who truly celebrate the diversity of our country and deplore a climate of discrimination and corruption. We treasure America, our democracy, our differences and our common ground.

********* is outraged by the abuse of power by the media, political parties and other institutions whether it takes the form of discrimination, extremism or corruption. This includes subverting power and abusing people on the basis of their sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, social status, regionality, education or handicaps. The offenders create a climate of fear and mistrust, victimize others and distort the truth for self interest at the expense of our citizens and our democracy.

********* members seek to promote our nation's remarkable diversity in every walk of life and in the entire political sphere. We place special emphasis upon those who have been historically underrepresented: women, minorities, members of the gay community and those who are otherwise marginalized.


I won't post a link because I'm not endorsing them here, but it's definitely a free speech area, but you must be most excellent to each other :) I wish DU would remember that, it pains me to see so much nastiness...among supposedly compassionate liberals. The way you guys responded to juajen's posts made me sick. Get over yourselves! We have a country to help, even if it means knocking Obama down a notch or two...geeeeesh.

:patriot:

Especially like the "Obama Countdown Clock" they've got rocking there, conveniently set to 4 years minus time elapsed.
Oh, and love the "Reputation" function. Imagine getting to give "little red marks" to people you don't like, which will follow them throughout their posts!

There's probably more, but that's as much as I could stand.

63. All I had to do was Google parts of the mission statement,
and they pointed me to the same mission statement on another blog.

Right at the bottom of the page was an "Obama Countdown Clock."

Was thinking about giving it a chance, but was turned off by the liberal plentiful use of words like "Obot."

Somehhow, I don't think I'd get a good reception if I posted pro-Obama things there.

internets. Sigh, I guess it goes with the office. Obot is like Freeper, just an extreme edge slang term of the blind support. Don't take it personally, just don't be rude. Hard to explain, huh? I seem to fit in everywhere, because I respect different opinions. I don't hate anyone, that helps :loveya:

69. If the link you provide on your homepage is indeed yours...
I must say...it's no surprise at all that you would defend "knocking Obama down a notch or two." Given the freeperish tone and direction of your blog entries - most of which either smear our president or celebrate Palin - I wonder how you can even claim to be a Democrat (if, in fact, you do).

70. Ironically, this poster
posted this link in one of the threads the other day supporting Obama. No one seemed to catch it then. Fortunately there are only 4 or 5 of these types with long-term accounts here. I think people tend to exaggerate their presence here. I've messaged the mods about them before and nothing happens.

They just muddy the waters for loyal Dems who have some dissenting views. I wish they'd just leave.

71. I was planning on providing a example entry from the poster's blog but...
it's all so damn disgusting that no one example will do justice. Racially loaded smears of Barack, Michelle, and even Michelle's mom. All hearts a kisses for Palin. Fuckin' A...

If they don't leave voluntarily, I look forward to when they are kicked to the curb for good, with pizza in hand. They are not us...

Well put. Yeah, I wouldn't post samples here. :( Totally offensive. We'd all have to disinfect.

91. Sorry, I have you on ignore.
I only see your posts when I'm logged out, but I know who you are. Your post at your blog highlights this new forum:

http://www.hillarysvillage.net/forumdisplay.php?f=174

which is a total insult to actual supporters of Hillary Clinton. Move along please. Hillary is SOS, and Obama is President. People like you only make trouble for others who supported other candidates than Obama in the primary. Several people here on the Obama side cannot move beyond the primaries because of people like yourself. Your own website shows no attempts to move on. People who vote for McCain are not better Democrats than the rest of us. Sorry. But it's true.

90. Why do you keep posting that link? I would not click on your crap
for anything in the world. I saw your defense of the DNC's poster of rush with that poster of a photo shopped picture of President Obama with a cigarette placed in his mouth and his skin darker than it normally is. I guess that some kind of code? Defending rush by slamming the President and insinuating he's the failure the country received? Your blog friends comments say "Great! Show him (Pres. Obama) for the scum he is!" You defend rush and support palin but you post here? How dare YOU is right and I've certainly sent a note to the mods asking why.

93. I think that's where the poster "thanks God" for Michelle Malkin's disgusting "HotAir" website.

I've also sent a note to the mods asking if they will consider whether someone who publicly supports such deplorable right-wing scumbags and smears should also be a member of the DU Community.

80. Well, you've picked sides. That much is true.
If you ever were a Democrat, it's obvious bitterness over the 2008 nomination result has so consumed you to the point that you would even stoop to cozying up to supporters of the most cretinous right-wing scumbags American politics has to offer.

Hopefully, one day you will wake up. Till then... Rest well.

73. No, actually, I didn't notice.
Supporting republicans like McCain and Palin can hardly be considered "democratic".

It's funny how you think that all the nastiness was a painful one way street. Any attempt to portray the hatred generated on that site as "simply growing" is a pathetic joke.

So, I'll just go ahead and start laughing now.

:rofl:

97. HV is not a democratic, nor a Democratic site. If you don't fall over yourself ............
while pouring out love for Hillary, then you're not welcome. After reading a handful of posts, it's quite obvious that President Obama can do nothing right, in their eyes.

I am all for open dissent, but open minded people will only listen to it when it's done without blinded hate and rage.

82. How about a self-outing?

I stayed a member there until the end, thought it worth seeing alternate viewpoints. Stayed here throughout, became an Obama supporter when HRC pulled out, think Palin is a disaster, never considered voting for McCain.

I don't go for piling on, lock-stepping, or plain old bullying either online or IRL.

Sad to see it, in the form of both grave dancing and personal attacks, on this thread.

On we go, Democrats.
