  •  So How Come (4+ / 0-)

    we here at KOS have allowed Neil Boortz to claim that the 32 killed were "wussies" and "cowards" for not fighting back? Why haven't we gone on the offensive like we did when Coulter made her "faggot" remark?

    Boortz also made the statement that it was the fault of the public school system because the system teaches students to "turn the other cheek." Which, as we know, is not a public education tenet; it's a Jesus Christ tenet.

    Why are we not doing anything? Why aren't we calling his sponsors and forcing him off the air?

    Is what Anne Coulter called Edwards more despicable than calling 32 innocents "wussies" and "cowards?"

    Seems like we have a double standard.

      of these nitwits.  I've personally addressed Boortz here, and the rest here and here, not to mention numerous Coulter and Malkin diaries.

      There's also this new diary on Boortz by Travis Bickle.

        addressing the issue by posting is different. When Kos, and its members flex their muscles, things happen. Right now, the members don't think what these people are saying is of any significance. Personally, I think it is of much more significance than calling John Edwards a faggot.

        What does it take to rally the Kos troups?

      will rip them a new asshole. I think we will see more parents going after these idiots once they have the chance to bury their children and grieve.  As all of them should be ashamed of blaming the victims or liberals or whomever Anytime but ESPECIALLY  when most of these kids are lying in some funeral home.Most funerals have not even taken place yet the right wing already is spewing hate.

        That's how Hatemedia (tm) works. The Rethugs attack at the moment when the most credible opponants cannot respond. At the moment, they are grieving.

        When the counter idea is organized, their short attention spans forget who said what; all that remains is the ugly feeling in their supporters minds.

        This is pre-rational. pre-verbal, prehistoric debate style. It is why the democracy is threatened. They have NO decency. NONE. This is Himmler. This is the method of every murderous despot since mass communications were invented.

        They are still  inside our 'decision-action cycle.' This site changes the calculus. We have a temporary window of advantage.

        Gingrich and Thompson and Rommney have to pay for this one.
