Well it finally happened: Dana Pico has given in to his chickensh*t right wing extremists on his First Street Journal blog, those who break his rules with immunity, versus one more than willing to debate the issues facing this nation.
All that we have had in recent days is acrimony. Yes, I like debate, but debate should be about issues, not about people, and all we are debating here is personalities. I would love to have some good, liberal commenters here, ones that don’t just inspire invective.
I would note here that the previously banned commenter has also gotten banned from Patterico, over which I have no control, and Sister Toldjah, over which I have no control. Perhaps, just perhaps, it isn’t really your Editor who is the problem.
The failing, Dana, are those who produce invective. But don’t feel like you are being singled out, because your right wing comrades produce invective: Rush Limbaugh, Fox News. This is the behavior of the losing side, thinking that the only way they can dominate is to behave like a gaggle of school yard bullies, like the US House of representatives.
But you have the power re your blog; too bad you don’t have the power which the American people grant by their choices at the ballot box. However, your party is hell bent on taking over said power by nefarious means such as voter suppression. Your kind are well on your way to subvert this nation to second class global status.
So be it – You won this round, Dana. But please don’t give us any more lectures about the First Amendment and free speech, since you have now classified yourself as an hypocrite of the first order!
