    who has been building up a record on this site in an attempt to give you some sort of street cred to run bullcrap like this diary throughout the Republican primary... guess what phenry... you're through! And everyone is going to know it.

    Sorry your astroturf campaign isn't going to work this time, and that all of your hard work creating a phony account will be wasted.

    I will be here everyday putting down your neocon lies.

    •  seriously, cut this shit (3+ / 0-)

      If you want to speak for Libertarian Republicans on this Democratic site, go ahead.  We'll see what happens with honest debate.

      But stop throwing around fictions about lurking Kossack neocons.
      That's not the way it works here.

      Dispute his/her facts if you can.  Make the case for your candidate.  Don't play the bullshit accusation and smear game.  Leave that on the other side of the aisle.

        in fact all the way back to 2002. I now how it works here at election time. Take note that your advice will go unheaded. THis individual is a Guiliani supporting neocon and you can plainly see that in the diaries he has written in his two main alternate accounts... honestly, just look at each of their diary sections... I haven't seen two people which such similar patterns on dailykos, which is how I know for a fact that its a stunt. Sorry if that offends you.

        I don't speak for all libertarian republicans on this site, I speak for myself, but I am voting for democrats in the short term, so I do have my place.

        I would suggest that you put more effort on figuring out why anyone would be directly attacking Paul day after day, than in scolding me for my clear defense against a smear artist.

          You are inventing an ad hominem campaign against a Daily Kos diarist.  
          When you play this card, you are not addressing the content of the allegations, or even countering with contradictory information-- you're just smearing.  Going with the cheap "Look out everyone, there's a secret neocon among us!" tactic is very poor form.

          I don't have to figure out why someone is posting these things on Daily kos-- and you shouldn't either.  Ron Paul is a Republican.  

          Setting aside any racist writings that he is being accused of authoring, he still promotes an agenda that is antithetical to many progressive Democratic ideals.  I'm sure you want this community to be open to a wide range of ideas and politics-- since you yourself do not share the dominant ideology of this community-- but the fact remains: this is a site specifically organized and maintained to elect Democrats, primarily progressive or liberal ones (and, by extension, to defeat conservative Republicans).  

          Whether or not you believe that Ron Paul is guilty of aspousing these racist views, you should not be surprised or outraged that he gets some harsh press here.  
          As a conservative Republican, Ron Paul is not at home on Daily kos-- and most of the Kossacks who celebrate his dissenting voice on the war will agree with that fact.

          •  well... duh (0+ / 0-)
            I'm not writing diaries denouncing Ron Paul unlike the writer of this diary, on a liberal website, when we all know for a fact that he won't win the Republican nomination anyways.

            Why do you think this diarist is targetting Ron Paul on dkos? I'll ask you to fill in the blanks.

            Keep in mind that he is using alternate accounts throughout the site to showcase his signature calling Paul a "racist scubag", and if you look in the history of these two, you will see he writes "shit" with his alias every other word.

            Sorry to disappoint you but I am not going to stop targetting this person as a neocon when he has made it his mission to target Ron Paul on this site.
