  •  this is just mainstream media (12+ / 0-)

    propaganda and pretty poor version of it. Perhaps you may want to ask why he was so beloved by the masses in Latin America? This is really worse than watching fox news or reading one of Murdoch's papers ... aren't you the one that was claiming we were bringing down Dkos by actually discussing the man's accomplishments instead of repeating the propaganda of the mainstream media. If you want the mainstream media, go watch it or read it ... if you are a liberal, then you should support freedom of speech rather than call for a piece you disagree with that is based on fact to be taken down. Your liberalism seems to be a rather weak version of a green tea ...

      Don't falsely accuse me of something.

      •  you said that the piece does not (9+ / 0-)

        belong on dkos and brought shame to the site; you essentially said that it should be taken down ... are you telling me that is not what you said above? again, your liberalism is pretty weak and freedom of speech just does not appeal unless it is something you agree with ... this is the anti-capitalist chat and anti-capitalist meetup, this is our page, you have come here, said things that are ridiculous for someone that calls themselves a liberal and have the nerve to be upset that we do not have the patience to deal with you?

        If you don't like the piece, you can go read one of the millions of things on the internet that appeal to you; whinging and flinging about propaganda from the mainstream media (which you could also watch on the telly or read a newspaper instead of being here is an option) ... this is an appreciation to a man that died of cancer that many respect; all you have to add to the discussion is that this shames dkos and telling me what the MSM has to say (which we know thank you very much) ... there must be another piece on Chavez where you can state your position and you will be greeted with applause on dkos.

      Yes, this diary and comments like yours are indeed bringing down dailykos. This is the kind of stuff I saw in right wing publications 30 years ago defending the Apartheid regime.
