    highlighted on their website a user-made video that compared Bush to Hitler for chrissakes.

    Our side is not above this stuff, and it has nothing to do with Obama's race. This is modern politics. You don't have to like it, but "Go to Hell Barack" -- while obnoxious -- is not enough to justify censorship.

    •  It's not censorship. (1+ / 0-)

      There is no right to advertise wherever you want.  Rejecting an ad isn't censorship, it's just not accepting the ad.

    •  Actually, they didn't. I'm no fan of MoveOn. (7+ / 0-)

      I used to be a member until they recently endorsed Obama way too early in the game, so I quit being a member.  They hounded, and hounded me to come back.  Pfft.

      MoveOn had a contest, and one of the contributions was regarding the video you mentioned.  They didn't HIGHLIGHT it, it was just a submission, which MoveOn, once they were aware of it, denounced.

      We delivered. They failed us. We have moved on. (h/t to my good friend)
