    for merely asking you to provide proof for your accusation?

    This goes to both VDL and kestral9000.

    I've looked EVERYWHERE, tried EVERY possible Google search, and I've never been able to find any reference to the supposed "whitey" comment (and the first time I tried was many months ago when I first heard VDL make this accusation). Given what fodder such a comment would be for all the CM haters in the MSM, I would be almost certain that I should be able to find a reference to it somewhere, but I cannot.

    But for merely asking for evidence from VDL I get troll-rated not once, but twice! For the first time in my three and one-half years on dKos!

    Does anyone here honestly believe that other media outlets wouldn't pick up in a millisecond on such a divisive and inflammatory comment from their favorite whipping gal?

    But I guess that merely asking for evidence from certain TUs on this site constitutes troll-worthiness, if not grounds for outright banning.

    Screw you. You disgust me!

      but if you dont have the trust to believe that someone who actually watched the debate and saw it, then go screw yourself. You are basically calling me a liar.

      •  I did NOT call you a liar! (0+ / 0-)

        I merely asked for verification of your statement.

        First of all, when you repeated your allegation I did not even know that you had heard it first-hand. I thought it quite possible that you had heard it second-hand. Second, I thought it possible that you misheard what she said, or that you could have mentally paraphrased what she said. Honest people are capable of doing that, you know.

        The first time you made this allegation, the comment seemed so out-of-character, so much worse than other comments for which CM has been pilloried in the press, that I had to look for corroboration. And I never found it anywhere. Why can't you understand why it would be hard to simply accept your word for this story? Given how hated CM is in some quarters, I still find it nearly impossible to believe that CM could call Hank Johnson a "whitey" in a televised debate, and no major media outlet would pick u this outrageous comment , that no right-wing website would have a field day with this comment, that a You Tube video of this comment would not be all over the Internet, that in fact, no mention of this comment anywhere could be found on the Internet. And you don't understand how I could entertain doubts about your claim?

        And how is it ever troll-worthy to ask for evidence? I don't care how Trusted a User of this site is, anyone has the right to ask for evidence when something seems dubious. I still wish you could find such evidence for me.

        But what really saddens me is that in the past when you and I have discussed CM, we be civil with one another. When you doubted what I had to say, I tried to provide evidence, even though I didn't have much time to comment. And I actually felt better after the exchange, even though we never changed one another's opinion of CM.

        But this time I receive not one, but two troll ratings! I thank you for removing your troll rating, but kestral9000's still stands. And this buddy system of mutually reinforcing troll ratings that I've seen so often on this site, that I've always hated about this site even though I've never been personally been troll-rated before, really sickens me. If kestral9000 had heard the "whitey" comment, he should have said so. But I'm sure he didn't. I'm sure that he had no reason to troll-rate me other than he considers you his friend and you troll-rated me. That kind of behavior is so idiotic and repulsive and it is the main reason why I've pretty much stopped commenting on dKos.

        Finally, I do have just one little piece of well-intentioned advice to offer you. Why don't you just let go of some of your hatred?  CM no longer poses a threat to the prestige of ATL Democratic party, as you imagine it. Believe it or not, I am not the only one who finds your hate-filled rhetoric towards a six-time elected congresswomen from your own district a little off-putting.
