DailyKos And The Off The Rails Breitbart Hatefest
[Guest post by Lee Stranahan]
I’d like to take you on a brief journey to hell.
When I tell people on the right that my friend Andrew Breitbart is consider ‘to be ‘Satan’ by people on the left, they laugh. They know that Breitbart isn’t the most popular guy to liberals – but do they really know? I mean, do they read left wing sites? Get down into the comments? Highly doubtful.
The #Weinergate scandal has provided a good look at how the liberal blogosphere and the mainstream media react to a fishy story from a Democratic Congressman. And it’s been a lab experiment to see the writhing hatred they have for Breitbart. Take a look…I’ll give you some sample although the strong of stomach will actually go and read the site. I dare you.
This article by Stranded Wind quickly turns into an orgiastic victory wank about how the (totally discredited) DailyKos Kommunity has stopped Breitbart in his tracks!
This follows a fairly typical pattern for Breitbart. Some fakery is done, either on his order, or due to some individual taking initiative, and then it promptly runs on his trash news site, Big Government.
Only this time, unlike ACORN, instead of elected officials cowering before the media they met … us. You, me, Ministry of Truth, stef, and a bunch of other people who are just sick to death of Breitbart’s bullshit.
We took this ‘scandal’, we ripped it to shreds, and then we rammed the jagged fragments right down Andrew Breitbart’s throat. This is what a healthy media would have done to him long ago, but they’re as rotted as any institution in this country. Without us they’d have gone for titillation and serving the long term goals of their corporate masters over honest reporting and the public good.
The pud-pounding continues and it eventually turns creepily sexual, too…
Here’s another thing the media won’t touch: Indict Breitbart. The crimes against ACORN in Baltimore City’s jurisdiction are crystal clear and the only reason there wasn’t a grand jury investigation long ago is the city’s battered financial condition.
We won’t get financial recovery until we get good policy, we won’t get good policy if we’ve got assclowns like Breitbart trying to bump off a ferocious advocate for the people like Anthony Weiner, and something has got to give.
We need to turn all our will to Baltimore, and to its newly elected City Attorney, a nice Jewish boy who ran on the Democratic ticket, until the threat to our democracy that Andrew Breitbart represents is removed.
The evidence is clear. Breitbart, and his accomplices O’Keefe and Giles, will plead out rather than face a jury of Baltimore citizens. They’ll get some small amount of jail time, then probation that will keep them offline until well after the next election. The voter disenfranchisement that was the destruction of ACORN isn’t going to matter – we’re going to carry 2012 in a tidal wave.
Breitbart will get back online eventually, but he’ll be an irrelevant has-been like G. Gordon Liddy, catering to a small fringe audience. And America will be better for it.
Come on guys, rec this up – I want to see Dana Loesch, she of the pretty, pouty lips, saying my name on PJTV again. No photoshop, this, I’ll happily share the whole video
Another example — on this diary they do some articulate media criticism of the New York Times. Here is one paragraph from what the Times reported about the Weiner story…
The episode unfolded Saturday night when it was reported on the Web site biggovernment.com, run by the conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart. It played out all day Sunday on the Internet, with Mr. Weiner, a Democrat who represents part of Brooklyn and Queens, addressing the matter on his own Twitter and Facebook accounts, and with bloggers from the left and the right arguing about whether this might be the start of a scandal or an example of how easy it is for political rivals to harm each other’s reputations using new technologies.
So – there is the New York Times, doing a sort of boring factual piece. Not sure what’s controversial in there…oh! Wait! They mentioned Andrew Breitbart. You think YOU don’t like the NYT? Here is the response from DailyKos auteur fromer…
And I quote…(after the jump with a LOT of NSFW language.)
