  •  Your diary implies from the get-go... (14+ / 0-)

    ...that the diarist whose "cave" commentary you object to is part of the professional left. That's simply not the case, and you know it isn't. If you're going to use the term as an epithet, at least make it about people who real are in that category not because it's a convenient the same way "outside agitator" worked for certain people half a century ago.

    Not everyone accepts your definition of "right-wing trollery," which ever more often seems to be any criticism of the president you find objectionable.

    As for advocating for a third party, more than a dozen warnings were issued this week alone over that. Two people were banned for having violated previous warnings on the subject. One person wrote a diary on the subject, fully expecting to be banned for openly breaking the rule about such advocacy. And he was.

    Two others were banned for openly advocating (after having been previously warned) that it would be better if a Republican replaced Obama.

    We've made clear for the entire existence of this site that such views aren't tolerated and those who repeat them will be shown the door.

    You have every right to disagree with a diarist who believes that Obama is not living up to her view of what he should be doing. But insinuating that everyone on the left who critiques the president has racial motivations for doing so (or is being duped by others who do) transforms legitimate criticism into a hollow, fuming screed that does nothing to advance anybody's understanding. Nor does it promote the message of your sig line.

    Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I'll tell you what you believe.
