Nobody expects... the Hate Mailbag!

Well hello again DU! It's been an age since last we snaked the stinky sewer line of right-wing rumination, but alas, the hatemail pipe has backed up once again and little Trumpy turds are spilling out hither and yon.

While we attempt to bring the situation under control with a pressure washer and hazmat suit, those of you with strong stomachs may wish to observe these MAGAt-infested dingleberries in their natural habitat as they await a good flush.

STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING! Continuing beyond this point will expose you to offensive language that may be considered NSFW. You have been fucking warned!



IF YOU CAN'T STAND THE HEAT, GET OUT OF THE HELL HOLE

Subject: Welcome to Democratic Underground!

stay underground its where you belong in your echo chamber hell hole. Bunch of chicken shit liberals. Banning us only makes us stronger! Feel the heat!!!



WELL THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY

Subject: You guys are discrimatory as fuck

I was making fun of republicans by my username, registered and couldn't even post. Are you that discriminatory?! Ashamed I could possibly be a part of this party at one point in my life. Activated my account with a joke username, not one person on the fucked democraric party could stand even when it was pro democrat stance by the POTUS. Racist motherfuckers.GO FUCK YOURSELVES. You're seriously that ashamed by you're beliefs. YOU'RE RUINING THE FUCKING COUNTRY. CIVIL WAR 2018. THIS IS WHY SO MANY PEOPLE HATE DEMOCRATS AND ARE SWITCHING SIDES. LOL.



WHAT A BUNCH OF FUIN ASOLES

Subject: REAL fu..in jerks - the DEMOCRATS !

PASS IT ON......SCREW THEM DEM AS..OLES.



UH... THANKS FOR THE INFO, I GUESS?

Subject: No subject

I'm a True Conservative. I took a political test at my workplace in Connecticut and was the most conservative. I scored 91% conservative in the top 2% for all Americans. I have impressive conservative credentials. I even did a tea party.

I was unfairly zotted from Free Republic in June 2010. I stated that I was very conservative in a thread. Then darkwing104 tried to lie about my position on an issue related to the BP oil spill. Then 50mm started in by agreeing with darkwing104 even though he was misrepresenting me. I was a conservative, am a conservative and always will be a conservative. A true conservative, in the top 2% of all Americans.

I TAKE MY CONSERVATISM VERY VERY VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!!

VOTE REPUBLICAN!!!

YOU OWE ME RESPECT!!!

life - 10/10 abortion is wrong

guns - 10/10 support no restriction on gun ownership

marriage - 10/10 man and woman only, homosexuality is wrong

healthcare - 10/10 repeal Obamacare and we need tort reform.

immigration - 2/10 since I oppose SB1070. We need the workers. The McCain path to citizenship I support.

environment - 10/10 too many regulations and global warming is a farce

Iraq, Afghanistan - 10/10 fully support the wars and our troops

Israel, middle east - 9/10 pro Israel though a war with Iran is a bit much

income tax - 10/10 tax cuts across the board

corportate taxes - 10/10 tax cuts there too

social security and such - 10/10 phase that out



THERE'S REALLY NO NEED TO ANNOUNCE YOUR INTENTION TO MASTURBATE

Subject: Fuck DU

For putting Trump in the WH. I'm going to blast it all over the internet .



HMM... I WONDER WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED HERE?

Subject: Posting privileges revoked

Subject: Revoked Admission

I am so remorseful for my behavior that your rejection is giving me nightmares and cold sweats.

Note: nadinbrzezinski spelled her name wrong, Nadinbrezezinski, and then can't figure while her password won't work. Oh, the comments in the thread were DUzy worthy.


Subject: Password

I know you probably do not want me back, It is mutual.

Can you send me the password reset so I can do that, basic fucking cyber security, and i can move on and away from your fucking DLC site? I know I am not the only actual liberal who will stay away from your neoliberal site, At least be honest who you want to cater to. But seriously, you say you were hacked, you insist people reset their passwords... basic cyber security. If you were hacked or not it is really not my business, nor do I care.

I really do not care for your type, the Limousine insider DC, so called liberal. but really, basic cyber security.

Oh and I have tried using your fucking system to reset it and move on at least 5 times, one from Mexico incidentally during a shive. (the week of mourning in the Jewish tradition, I do not expect you to know that)

Nadinbrezezinski is my fucking user name.

Incidentally, I told your fucking party it was making a Weimar level mistake when you nominated HRC, enjoy that. I told you guys you were doing that before you did that before the primaries were over, and incidentally, my ROV used white out in San Diego to erase Sanders votes, welcome to the Torta effect. (yes it went to court by the way, and the ROV lost)

It is YOUR FUCKING PARTY. Neither democrats or republicans represent me, a simple working class media person that called Trump a fascist. But I am a working class member, and I get it why he got elected. But your party chose to steal the primaries. You are as guilty as the SDs were for the same fucking mistake at the twilight of the Weimar Republic. Historians are sure to call it exactly that.

But can I get that, so I can fucking move on?

Thank you.

What was an added pleasure was listening to the chattering class refer trump as having "blinked," "on defense," "weakened," "met his match," and other MOST satisfying comments.

He's terrified of her. So intimidated and off his game that he can't even come up with an insult-nickname. SHE'S the boss, donald. You're not even any good as a pretender.

Just like everything else in the world, I believe the hatemail has been affected by the rise of social media. We just don’t get as much these days as we used to — why email DU when you can fart your dumb opinions all over Twitter and Facebook?

That’s why I do have special place in my heart for the folks who still take the time to hatemail us directly. It’s like getting a snail mail letter

I like to read how utterly stupid these trolls are. Never any actual factual rebuttals of positions. Just schoolyard insults, and repetition of fake "alternate facts".

Personally I'd love it if technically you could create one forum for these whackos to talk amongst themselves. And where the braver of us can wade in once in awhile to humiliate them and destroy their arguments. Where any kind of language and insults is allowed. A waiver is required before entering. I guess that Discussionist was supposed to fill that role, but I never go there, and I'd wager most don't. A separate, but connected, forum allowing the deplorables, who were kicked out of the general DU, or would be if they tried, access only to that forum, and nowhere else. It would be a kind of sporting venue. Like a shooting gallery. Target practice. I'd sure have a blast!

...as long as I can bring the cannon great-great grandpa served in the Civil War, along with plenty of powder and canister.

I mean, according to my heritage, rebel yells and Confederate flags mean "Hey, Yankee! Point your cannon this way! X marks the spot!"

There are so many fox right wing radio brainwashed people out there who are voting against their best interests. Sad and mentally ill people.

The hate mailbag is back! Thank you EarlG. What a wonderful thing to see, and so fun to read. They are truly insane.

The days of Bob are long gone, replaced by... well, "have you watched the entire thing?" humorous in its own right, but never quite as funny as actual satire).

A lot of changes since then, Earl. But you guys are still doing a bang-up job!

Having admitted that, is there a rule here that you can't be a conservative? I guess I missed that. I know letting the moron class into DU would be like inviting a jaguar with rabies into your pup tent but they really do reinforce everything you believe about them.

69. The only rule is that you must support Democrats
Thu Jan 24, 2019, 05:21 PM

Advocate for and vote for Democrats. Refrain from pushing GOP or third party candidates... It's the Democratic Underground after all.

So no Republicans allowed.

Now, how comfortable a conservative Democrat or Independent would be on this board is an open question.

Where I live, I count as a very liberal guy (I'm a former coal country hillbilly who's lived in the corn and soybean prairie for the last 20 years) but I'm considered pretty conservative in this forum.

I like the board but occasionally clash with the more Social Democrat/Democratic Socialists types to my left.

Not an issue, arguing is one reason these boards exist after all. I just don't think folks to my right would even spend time here.

Those types - the ones you talk about " inviting a jaguar with rabies into your pup tent" they ain't an issue at all.

They flame out quick.

There have been long term stealth trolls that know how to play the system that linger - But even those guys tend to self ID and get tossed.

Sorry to chew yer ear Joe N.

I guess I have been following that rule just being me.

I was on another forum that had many, many conservatives that endlessly bashed Obama and pretty much all Dems. Once Trump got elected, they all vanished. They didn't mind vilifying Dems but couldn't tolerate defending their own idiots. The ammunition the few liberals had was so unlimited that the Cons tucked their tails between their legs and crawled away. Cowards!

I grew up with the DFL. We were rural but thinking voters. You don't see that much anymore. I have rural relatives and they are dumb as a bag of rocks. They are too dumb to know just to dumb they are.

Times are a changing.

I actually started laughing and got a kick of some of these. It's not sad really, being that these are, I am supposing, grown up adults expressing an opinion. Perhaps they need to grow up a lot more.

I expect the majority of these are from those still living in their 'Mom and Dad's' basement or with 10 other
roommates because they have to, and they are lashing out at everyone regarding their predicament caused by their own lifestyle choices. It's sad. I wish them the best.

Perhaps once they get into the mainstream of life like the rest of us 'normal' adults do, they'll understand the value of a conversation, respectful on both sides, with both sides truly one on one.

I do the same w/ those in my family on rump issues. I expect the same back. Often times I don't.

Had a hard time with my favorite. Went with DJT4MoreYears but the guy demanding respect for his online test conservative cred was a winner in any other batch of Hate Mail.

We are the smart. We really are.

also (thanks, DJT, if you're reading this), but True Conservative got a chuckle for his true belief that being in the "top" 2% was a good thing.

Personally, I think if someone voted for Trump, they owe the world an apology. If they still support him, they hate democracy. However, I will forgive them all if everyone of them gets together and takes turns kicking each other in the butter dish until only one is still breathing.

Hey, a Dem can dream, can't they?

It's plain to see why these doorknobs are republicans. The GOP does like their members ignorant and excitable. The guy who, " took a political test at my workplace in Connecticut and was the most conservative." took the cake in my opinion. And "he even did a Tea Party!". It's difficult to find conservative credentials more extensive than that.

how about this one...posted on a comment I made on Facebook...
Verbatim....

"++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Public enemy #1 is leftist liberals, #2 Islam, Liberal leftist will never understand logic and truth ! They are an ignorant , militant enemy of AMERICA ! Anarchists seeking to destroy America's very foundation ! Liberals are a cancer on America. Liberalism is a disease it breeds degenerate's! The leftist liberal dummycrats are , in reality, marxist/communists - a destructive ideology created by the Marx and Engels . This destructive ideology has wreaked havoc all over the world and has become deeply entrenched in OUR country , especially in the educational system where leftist/socialist/communist have taken over and are brainwashing OUR children ! Liberal leftist teachers/professors have turned OUR schools/colleges into terrorist training camps , as we can see from the violence on OUR campuses today ! What we are seeing is the systematic DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA ! education is being watered down to cater to the lowest common denominator, the lowest mentality ! Instead of promoting a strong youth of mind - body -soul , we are feminizing men , and masculinizing women ! This has always been a platform of the communist party - to destroy the family unit , which is the foundation stone of OUR country ! George Soros ( Ex Nazi ) is one of many on the liberal left who are using their power/money to fund the destruction of America ! This man is nefarious and a threat to the entire World ! His liberal leftist minions are the TRUE hatemongers of the world ! The mainstream FAKE media are willing participants in the brainwashing of Americans ! Only now are We The People coming to the realization that the mainstream media is THE ENEMY , and has been widely discredited ! So let us resolve to never allow this liberal leftist dummycrat MONSTER to ever raise it's head again in America ! We must CRUSH this menace here , so we can begin to CRUSH it all over the world ! we MUST cleanse the educational system , the political system , and the media of these ENEMY infiltrators ! Never hire a liberal leftist ! Eliminate the welfare state mentality ! Cleanse America of ALL illegals , no matter who they are or how long they have evaded OUR laws ! If We the People can achieve these goals We will have broken the back of this MONSTER in America ! Let it be so !"
