Subject: point of view
Democratic Underground. Sounds very sinister. What do you think the point of view of those special forces who our heroes and are truly protecting you think of your slanted views?
DU RESPONDS: I wonder what those heroes would think of your awesome grammar and spelling.

Just found your website and I have to say, you people are pretty pathetic.
Through our tears, We'll face our fears,
United We Stand, God Bless Our Land.
DU RESPONDS: Here we go again: "God Bless America. United We Stand. You Liberals are Pathetic." I am touched. *sniff*

Censorship Of Fools
Speech For You
From: "Mike ----- " <----------@home.com>
Date: Sat, 15 Dec 2001 19:09:50 -0500
Subject: Conservative Posters
Why don't you allow differing opinions? Surely the left believes in free speech. Or do you?
DU RESPONDS: About that so-called "free" speech... It ain't free for me, pal. I'll never understand why you freeloading conservative idiots think you have the right to waste my time, waste my money, and waste my bandwidth. What are you, some kind of Internet Welfare Queen? Get a job!

Subject: Answer This
I thought all you lefties
valued the 1st Ammendment? Yet, on your website forum you prohibit free speech
by banning conservative veiws? You are the typical liberal, you say one thing
yet do another. Don't worry I will never lower myself to speaking to you people
DU RESPONDS: Yawn. Yet another self-proclaimed "Constitutionist" who doesn't seem to have the first clue about the First Amendment. How depressing.
Best Opposing Viewpoint Ever?

Subject: Democratic U
Wow! I lasted a whole two minutes as a poster on your site. Freedom of speech! Opposing views! What a bunch of low-life Clinton suck-ups!
DU RESPONDS: And that's your "opposing viewpoint" is it? Gee, I can't possibly think why you got banned...

Date: Wed, 23 Jan 2002 16:49:19 -0800 (PST)
Seems that everytime I disagree with the main thread and present facts I get called a name and censored from the site.
Don't you want a free exchange of ideas or just a cozy make believe land where all liberals can pat each other on the back and feel good about themselves?
DU RESPONDS: Make believe land! Make believe land! Keep your ugly "facts" away from us, you nasty man!

What happened to my id last
week or so ?
Did you disable it due to a 'controversial' posting ? I think you did.
Check whatreallyhappened to find out who is behind all the terrorism - Israelis/Jews.
You don't like to hear that do you ? We've been conditioned to cringe when someone says something bad about them.
YOU are being programmed too.

Subject: DU losers
So you don't want to hear about the Jews do you ?
Well isn't that sweet...appears to me that DU is Jew owned too then ?
So do you deny Israeli spying also, wire tapping too ?
You are sick. I hope someone nukes Israel and the DU. I might even report the ####ing DU to the FBI myself.
Don't bother trying to trace
this email you Jewish bastards.

I hope the FBI shuts DU down. You are not democratic, you are promoters of anti-anti-semitism...and you don't even know what that is I'll bet.
Good luck with the FBI, you anti-semitic piece of shit.

Subject: You f*ing Nazi bozos banned me?
I just found where some folks who think they're important there posted notes claiming I was some sort of conservative disruptor. Since I'm not longer able to log in, I presume you axed my account.
UnF*ingbelievable. You are so blind, it boggles the mind. I'm a successful businessman, yes, former KPMG Director, partner in an outsourcing company. I'm also better read than any of you on Marx, Socialism, Progressive thought, and history in general. I know whereof I speak, you numbskulls, and just because I don't have a lot of sympathy for your backslapping pseudo-liberal superiority and brainless kneejerk acceptance of anything anti-Republican, y'all think I'm "a disruptor".
Well, Orwell was right. And Max Schactman - do you know who he was? Or William Whyte? You people may want to try some serious self-examination.
Best of luck, you big bad "evilDUers".
DU RESPONDS: Ooh, a quiz, don't tell me... William Whyte, that was that blue Mel Gibson dude in "Braveheart," right? And Max Schactman plays the drums for Conan O'Brien. Do I win?

Subject: Re: Democratic Underground Registration Information
You people are pathetic. Typical
liberal scum. If anybody even shows a tiny bit of independant thought you sensor
them. You are displaying typical liberal behavior. I guess the constitution
really means nothing to you people.
I can see why Bill Clinton is your hero.
You seek to control the lives of everybody and you attack those who don't agree with you. You force your politics down everybody's throats.
I am glad I am not one of you.
DU RESPONDS: Let me get this straight. You turn on your computer. You log on to the Internet. You type www.democraticunderground.com into your web browser. You read a bunch of stuff on our website. And you waste a couple hours crafting a hate email to send to us. Then you accuse us of forcing our politics down your throat. Cry me a river, bub. Those nasty liberals sure are oppressing you.

I came upon your site and have concluded that you people are truly dillusional. If you believe the tape being shown is phony, you must also believe the same of man walking on the moon. To what extent will you go to justify your beliefs? Some things just are as they seem.
DU RESPONDS: You sure have got the liberal mind figured out. We ALL think the bin Laden tape is fake. We ALL think man never walked on the moon. Beware the liberal Borg -- you are about to be assimilated.

Subject: How Sad
I read the whole Hate Mail page an noticed that you never answered one of your critics with facts. Typical. You answered them all with smart ass comments that weren't even clever. Sad.
DU RESPONDS: Elizabeth, you're an idiot. And that's a fact.

When are you going to get it. Gore and his buddies "CHERRY PICKED" the counties for a revote. In every election votes DO NOT count because people do not pay attention to what they are doing and DO NOT READ INSTRUCTIONS. After all the votes were counted by machine as designed and authorized by the democratic party, guess who won. That is right. President George W. Bush. Maybe by the next election you and your liberal big-government supporters will be able to instruct all those people who did not pay attention or read the instructions. Perhaps they can't read because of the liberal agenda in our schools to pass everybody thereby not hurting anyone's feelings. Forget what they haven't learned, just give them a good feeling about themselves. That ought to prepare them for life. Oh, why do you call yourselves the democratic underground. What are you hiding from?
DU RESPONDS: We're hiding from twits like you. Looks like we need to try harder.

Don't accept emailed contributions because of "copyright issues"?
How could email copyright issues be more significant than the daily posting of copyrighted columns by your registered members?
DU RESPONDS: I'm sorry, you must be confusing us with FreeRepublic.com!

As a conservative, I frequently visit your site to see what is going on in the extreme liberal world. I find interesting your diminishing amount posting activity. What do you think? Are your contributors giving up in the face of the obvious?
DU RESPONDS: I'm sorry, you must be confusing us with FreeRepublic.com!

You have to warn your readers about profanity in the hatemail box? Have you read your site lately? I think they've been initiated.
DU RESPONDS: Thanks for the tip. Now fuck off.
