DailyKos Is a Nappy-Headed Ho?

Amazing how fast a so-called liberal Dem site turns into fascist Freeperville, is it not?

Kos commenter Alegre calls out the evil evil-doers:
If you're sick of the way Hillary - a good and decent Democrat - has been vilified and attacked... if you've EVER recommended one of my dairies on this or any other site then please join me in this effort. Let's take a stand here and now and tell the world we will no longer remain silent in the face of the sexism, anger, irrational hate, lies and attacks against Hillary. Nor will we add to the bottom line of a site that continues to lead the charge in fueling it.

Yes, then Alegre asks for Kossacks to join the strike in via comments. And Markos disables the comments.

America, America, God shed his grace on thee.

Tom Watson on the flight from DKos:
But much of it comes from boorish, Stalinist behavior online - the kind of "you're either with us or against us" attitude we saw so much of when the Bush crowd was flying high. It's disturbing, particularly because so many of the targets are women. This is not the Democratic Party many of us have worked for; this is not the progressive blogosphere we've supported. Without blaming the worthy candidacy of Senator Obama in any way, this is not a progressive movement - it's a harsh, echo-filled politburo bathed in faux post-racial hosannas and the gauzy camera lens of "hope."

More of Tom Watson's commentary on the strike, here.

This campaign is bringing all our proud American sexist fratboys proudly out of the closet.
Don't miss Hitchens telling us why broads just ain't funny, here.
