    as an antiwar vet, to be called "baby-killer" by centrist Dems that never spent a day in uniform (didn't we used to call them chickenhawks?) because I oppose the rush to war in Syria, because I oppose bombing Syrian cities and killing babies...Well, I've gotten that line, in almost identical words (as in a prepared talking points sheet) from two different kossacks.  That's where we are now, antiwar vets are "baby killers" to the Democratic Party mainstream as represented here at dkos.

    •  Don't judge us all by the outliers, please. (0+ / 0-)

      Some of us try to push back hard against that shit, and get drowned out in the butthurt.

      If you ever see it on the front page, let me know and I'll lead the exodus, but I doubt it will happen.

      There are all shades of Democrats here. I disagree with a lot of them on some things, some of them on others. but it remains the best site for information and community.

      "Better Democrats" posting here will keep it that way.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.
