WTF?

This has to be a joke, right John? Frank J made it up, right? Holy crap, it's true? Anyone here who thinks that Bush hatred is not something to worry about needs to read this post on RWN today. John found an extremely frightening thread on the DU. The intro:

As we’ve heard again and again recently, if we are going to beat this bunch of rule breaking GOP misanthropes, we’re going to have to start fighting as dirty as they do. I started this thread for one reason, to get everyone’s ideas on a list of things we as Democrats can consider to stop the takeover of this country. This isn’t going to be a thread for the squeamish, or for the ideologically pure. Best to steer clear if that describes you.

Now we've already heard people like Moby say that lying is OK if it will help Kerry win. But these DUers lay it all out, provide strategy, and pat each other on the back when they come up with a new way to lie. I think my jaw dropped to the floor as I read these comments. I can't believe these are real people.

1 Heh, DU is funny. Don't take them to seriously, the tactics they describe are the antics of adults (?) who never matured past gradeschool. Anyone who is capable of thinking critically would see right through this bunk they are espousing. Dem or Rep.

2 They're not real people. I've spoken (well, online) to some such. As far as I can tell, they're just random assemblies of poorly-coded Perl scripts. Sometimes you even see the error messages.

3 Don't take them or their proposals so lightly. Keep in mind how what seem to be left-wing tinfoil-hat black helicopter conspiracy theories keep showing up in the mouths of prominent Democrat leaders! Dean with his "Bush knew" about 9/11 in advance. Ted Kennedy with his "Bush concocted a war" in the name of Halliburton. Even Algore with "he betraaaaaayed this country!" rant... all showed up on DU first. They ARE the core of the party these days.

4 I think they have something like 40,000 registered users. Of course, most of those have probably been banned.

5 The site is already down. Mommy came into the room and saw what her twentysomething loser son was up to and put a stop to it. Come on, libs are not exactly known for their ability to get in someones face, much less kick their butt. Its not their forte....hard to throw a girly punch (no offense meant) with one hand on a latte and the other holding a book about Marx.

6 Aren't we already fighting a group that condones lying to the "infidels" if it furthers their causes?!?
