It's gotten so bad that one DailyKos diarist has begun a boycott of the site.
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.
The attackers and disrupters are no better than Chris Matthews with their sexism, hate, lies, and obsession with bashing - all – things – Hillary.
This isn't the first time DailyKos has been under attack for similar behavior being displayed by its members.
[T]he hate this site traffics in rivals the KKK and Nazi websites.
Other liberal blogs have also been criticised for allowing their members and readers to spew hate filled attacks and even calls for violence against people who do not agree with their view points. One such site is the Huffington Post.
Back in March, Huffington censored unauthorized commenters expressing regret that bombers in Afghanistan failed to kill Vice President Dick Cheney, drawing criticism for crushing free speech from HBO talk-show host Bill Maher. But the HuffPost’s official bloggers, many of them Hollywood celebrities, have often matched that harshness of tone in posts that unloaded on the wrong-headedness of America and its re-election of the Bush administration, often loaded with profanity and crude sexual and excretory metaphors.
We at tKC thought it would be interesting to see what hate speech we could find on some of the more popular left leaning blogs in the area. We were pretty taken aback at what we found.
We took a look at Tonyskansascity, one of the area's most popular blogs. Tony's blog is given such respect by the local blogosphere that he has his own segment on KMBZ 980's morning show and is often quoted on the KC Star's Prime Buzz blog.
Here's just a sampling of the tolerance and inclusiveness one can expect to find there:
he is a white male, and therefore my sworn enemy
Let’s focus all our attention on keeping white women happy and safe!!!
I could have sworn that the mandatory trade-up date on white women in Johnson County was something like 31
my urban core experience marvels at white people using public transport
TKC adding the bus in JoCo to a long list of places where white women might be open to suggestion.
Thank you Sweet Jesus, the missing white woman is safe!!!
this issue has been a loser for so many white people in Kansas City.
In all of the drama, I've yet to see or hear of any person of color who felt strongly one way or another about light rail
Fox 4 has an amazing story about a surprising legal disparity in favor of luxury vehicle operators i.e. white guys on vacation.
Furthermore, animal rights isn't that strange of a cause for TKC to support given that I've participated in countless silly activities at the behest of white women.
In my tireless pursuit of fat bottomed white broads TKC has…
Sadly, if I stayed quiet because of what some (admittedly handsome) white guy told me I would have never banged so many blonde, MILF divorcées
I’ve been informed that the mandatory "trade-up" age for most JoCo Trophy wives is 35 years young. It seems harsh but I don't make the rules . . . Upper class white guys with money do.
it's hard for me to show an interest in anybody but chubby, blonde white MILFS
…in discussions of Riley there's usually some white person who points out the fact that the guy isn't popular in his own community…
The Kansas City blogosphere extends much further than a small cadre of white people…
Stuff white people like in Kansas City
The blogosphere isn't all white in Kansas City.
In the case of the Red Bridge Crowd, middle-class white people were genuinely surprised that there demands were not immediately met.
The only surprising aspect of the Red Bridge story is that this time it was employed against white people.
I talk a lot of smack and constantly deride affluent white people
Weed’s where the white people live too
JoCo is founded on racial covenants, bigotry, segregation, rampant consumerism, conformity and fear
We're sure Tony thinks he is just being funny, but so did Don Imus.
It would seem that the evidence is clear. If you are looking for your daily dosage of sexism, hate and lies, you need look no further than your nearest liberal blogger.
