If you read Democratic Underground these days you’ll think you were reading Free Republic. There’s really no difference in their political views. They both love Obama and hate Hillary. But for different reasons.
One thing you have to remember about the support for Obama at DU is that the moderators over there enforce a particular point of view and unless you stay within their limits you get kicked out. So it’s not really like liberals are all for Obama, it’s that if you aren’t for Obama then you’re much more likely to get booted from their forum. I personally have been banned because my views are not their views. So people like me can’t post.
The DU people are easily fooled by Republicans. The news media created Obama as the Messiah, the reincarnation of Kennedy and MLK combined. Everything a liberal could want except it’s all fake. I would bet that less than 1% of the Obama supporters had ever even heard of him before 2004. And while they rail against the vas right wing conspiracy when you listen to them talk the words that are coming out of their mouths are the words the Republicans are putting in them. When Democrats speak the Republican message then you know the Republicans have won.
Obama is a cult. Liberals think they are smarter than the Evangelicals who are being suckered by the Neocons. But when you hear the DUers saying exactly the same things that the Evangelicals are saying about the Clintons then it’s clear, at least to me, that the Neocons have create a cult for the liberals the same way they created a cult for the conservatives. Neocons, Evangelicals, and Liberals are now speaking with one voice.
Am I the only one who has a problem with this?
Of course I can’t post this on Democratic Underground because I’ve been thrown out of the cult. Sometimes I think the only two sane people left on the planet are me and Bartcop . And sometimes I’m not sure about me.
I’m not sure who the biggest phony is, McCain or Obama. But if it comes down to a choice at least it’s loser vs. loser. I’m getting tired of voting for losers. I’m tired of choosing between cults.
