    I'm sorry you were offended by that exchange, which, having not participated in it myself, and after a quick scan of your comments, I assume started out with this comment of yours.

    You may want to consider acclimating yourself to DailyKos a bit more, as it can get rather abrasive at times, especially in hot-button types of diaries where sitewide consensus is absent.

    In any case, I hope you stick around. There's plenty of good stuff here that isn't controversial -- people write great diaries on a variety of different subjects. I know I've personally learned a lot from this place.

    •  It's not so much offended, but the irony of it (0+ / 0-)

      As a Pagan I believe in standing up for our rights, but doing it in a matter that causes true change. My skin is tough because as a Pagan I have to be. Nobody truly understands it.

      I am going to use a prime example of what a Pagan faces secrets. There are Secrets that some Pagans know, but we can not share with the world. There are times when we wish to fight and share our knowledge, but it goes against our own coven wishes. My Knowledge that I have gained on Paganism I can not truly share, but that doesn't mean I won't fight for someone.

      Just as the NSA story has many different layers so do people. We all are different in our beliefs, but we are people. Our knowledge is different as well. You may have a better understanding of something faster then me because of past experience or something I have yet to influence me. I am new here, but I am used to standing up and I would rather see us focus on real change. Lets gear up a true movement.

      Wisdom is the result of knowledge through reason and understanding of common sense. Do you have Wisdom or seek it?

        To take into consideration your paganism and therefore avoid making comments that might imply something you don't like? Or am I reading you wrong?

        Given the propensity you've shown so far for reading more into words than people actually say, you may want to consider a more measured approach in your reaction to comments made by others on a political blog.

    •  Thanks, DeadHead, for the link with 'fascist' (1+ / 0-)

      I've asked the diarist twice in this thread for evidence of her being "called a fascist", and have received no reply.  I noticed only this dairy, and one other, in her comments thread.  Thanks for showing me where the term 'fascist' came into the discussion.

      This is the diary to which this diary refers:

      In the section of comments you link to, DeadHead, this discussion transpired:

      (1.)  this diarist states that UK is 'ruled by King/Queen' (a monarchy);
      (2.)  1st reply points out EU treaties and common law (re: free speech/expression;
      (3.)  2nd commentor replies to 1st reply, to commentor at (2), not to the diarist


      As if these fascists give a damn about any law.
      (4.)  In reply to (3), this diarist ASSUMES that 'these fasicsts' has been applied personally and directly to him/her.

      This diarist appears to have personalized a generalized comment about 'these fascists' in government.  This began a threadjack on British government -- an interesting threadjack, and informative in its off-topic way.

      •  That was my impression (0+ / 0-)

        now very thoroughly substantiated by your comment.

        You really do have a knack for producing evidence-laden comments.

        Thanks, CroneWit. :)
