Kos Schism Widens

• Views: 667

The New York Times “blog” takes note of the internecine warfare at the web’s chewy center of left-wing lunacy: Pro-Clinton Bloggers Boycott Kos.

Here’s the diary post, decrying the horrific sexism and profane abuse directed toward Hillary Clinton, with apparently no awareness at all that this kind of hatred is not reserved for Hillary; it’s the Daily Kos Lord of the Flies modus operandi for anyone who doesn’t pass their ideological purity test: Daily Kos: Writers Strike at DailyKos.

I’ve been posting at DailyKos for nearly 4 years now and started writing diaries in support of Hillary Clinton back in June of last year. Over the past few months I’ve noticed that things have become progressively more abusive toward my candidate and her supporters.

I’ve put up with the abuse and anger because I’ve always believed in what our on-line community has tried to accomplish in this world. No more. DailyKos is not the site it once was thanks to the abusive nature of certain members of our community.

I’ve decided to go on “strike” and will refrain from posting here as long as the administrators allow the more disruptive members of our community to trash Hillary Clinton and distort her record without any fear of consequence or retribution. I will not be posting at DailyKos effective immediately. I will not help drive up traffic or page-hits as long as my candidate – a good and fine DEMOCRAT - is attacked in such a horrid and sexist manner not only by other diarists, but by several of those posting to the front page.
