Wherein I simply cannot, in the face of THIS much stupidity, keep from lowering myself to personal attack. Mea culpa. Hopefully it will serve some higher purpose, But how can one NOT respond to this level of blatant hypocritical insanity, when one is one of the targets of it?
From the Fearsome Cedwyn at Daily Kos, Blog General and SpyMaster Extraordinaire:
Your humble narrator’s opinion is that elevating the negative above the positive is damaging in the long-term, to all our causes and goals.
And how does this Leading Light of the of so Pragamtic Obamacrats wish to implement this “Positive Vision” of blogging?
By conspiring in “secret” to game the system at Daily Kos. By literally “targeting” people to “diminish their influence.” By organized spying on other blogs. By throwing out their standards of reccing to gain advantang and game the system. All of this is being attempted by establishing a private Facebook group, explicitly to stage what can only be called ….a hostile takeover of Daily Kos ….
Daily Kos is not in the midst of a pie fight from what I can discern. It’s in the midst of a paradigmatic overhaul that equates to a hostile takeover. I’m just not down with that. It doesn’t represent me.
In yet another stunning display of hypocrisy from the Obamacrats….
Even as s/he is condemning (unnamed, unspecified, to a level that can only be called Conspiracy Theory) OTHER people for trying to “takeover” Daily Kos….. s/he is actively working to stage just such a hostile takeover.
From the ineffectively (lol) “secret” site:
The “Positive Vison” of Cedwyn is thus revealed….The method of positivity suggested is to target, spy on, and defeat other Progressive Bloggers.
Including poor little Docudharma, Scourge of the Intertrons.
THESE are the saviors of the Democratic Party, lol, people who can’t even manage to click a button to make their secret conspiracy to game a blog private. THESE are the people who will lead us to political effectiveness by being “positive,”…..as they conspire to defeat other progressive bloggers.
Because obviously….it is not Republicans that are the real problem with the world, it is not corrupt Democrats who are the real problem with the world, it is not a broken political and economic System that is the real problem with the world, it is nopt war, hunger, and Climats Change that is the real problem with the world…..
….it is other progressive Bloggers that are the real problem with the world.
If only Cedwyn and company can find a way to effectively target and destroy other bloggers….THEN, and only then, will all the problems of the world be solved.
There are just NO words that can adequately describe this level of complete inanity and insanity. All one can do is marvel at the hypocrisy, intellectual dishonesty and complete and utter obtuseness and ineffectiveness of these folks, who somehow delude themselves that they are bright enough to be “The Ones in Charge.”
When they can’t even pull off a conspiracy to game a freaking blog…without tripping over their own stupidity.
Oh Please, save us Cedwyn! Save us from ourselves with your brilliant plotting and spying! On us. And we in turn promise, in return for your
attacks on us saving us from ourselves…. to only write about our government and the Democratic Party in glowing and positive terms!
Happy Pony Joy Rainbows!
Because EVERYONE knows that The Powers That Be will put aside their corrupt agendas and do exactly what we say! if only we are positive enough and nice* enough!
*Excerpt from the essay titled…..nice
How could they resist our niceness? Surely when we properly communicate the idea of niceness, all the mean and bad people will get this nice idea….
And stop being mean and bad!
All the Senators who are voting the wrong way will see how nice we are and change their votes after being overwhelmed buy our niceness.
Heck they will become so nice that they will even give the Insurance companies, and energy companies and MIC companies, all of their “campaign contributions” back.
After all that would be the nice thing to do if they are now joining the nice lobby and rejecting all those other lobbies.
That pay them millions of dollars.
So that those Senators will be nice to the insurance companies and other not nice folks.
It is what a nice person would do, isn’t it? When confronted by so much niceness, it would only be nice to do what the nice people ask them nicely to do.
Instead of doing what those people who pay them millions of dollars ask them to do instead.
You are a nice person right? And if a BUNCH OF REALLY NICE PEOPLE CAME UP TO YOU AND ASKED YOU NICELY to do what they wanted you to do…
Instead of doing what the people paying you millions of dollars wanted you to do…..
YOU would give up those millions of dollars, and join with the nice people, right? Give up all that funding that allows you to stay in power ….so you can get all that funding.
You would give all that up and do whatever the nice people ever so nicely ask you to do.
And then, once all of us nice people have shown all the Senators and Congressmembers how much nicer it is to be nice….
Then we can go to the source and convince…through the power of niceness…the polluters to stop polluting, the bankers to stop preying on the middle and lower classes, the military to stop going to war and killing people. (People who are probably very nice, when people aren’t trying to kill them.)
The insurance companies too, they will stop being mean and start being nice too!
After all what is more important to these folks? The trillions of dollars they get to rob and steal through controlling Senators and the legislation they pass by not being nice….or being nice?
Surely if we ask them nicely, they will give up all that too, and start being nice.
If we can just show them the way, I am sure they will join us in our nice coalition.
And if we are nice enough, if we do it right…..we can even save the planet from catastrophic climate change! Because all those potentially nice polluters, like the oil companies making record profits off of killing the atmosphere, will be happy to give up those profits and start working along side us nice folks to save the planet for our kids and cute little, nice, grandkids. The cute little nice grandkids who may not have a habitable planet if we aren’t nice enough to the oil companies to stop them from destroying their future.
But what if I am wrong about that?
What if they decide to keep polluting and killing and robbing and stealing even if we are like, SUPER nice to them? What if being nice doesn’t work?
Then what do we do?
