I just got banned from the Hillary Clinton room.

Apparently pointing out empty rhetoric will do that.

Thank the gods. Ick, creepy, mentally desolate, my skin is crawling, I must shower.

Just remember, do not attempt this at home. My PSA.

Peace.

Just save it for GD, I figure.

I got banned from the BOG 'cause I pointed out to a poster there that bombing Syria would not count as "humanitarian action" back in 2013.

or lack of.

I was banned 6 months ago for asking how a poster could possibly predict specifics about Hillary's future campaign without any current inside knowledge of her campaign. The poster had no answer, and I was immediately banned for asking a simple question.

The PM informing me of my banishment even contained a fairly detailed explanation of why my sin merited such draconian punishment.

19. It can happen accidentally, also.

A post from the Hillary Group was featured on DU's front page without sourcing it was from The "Hillary Group" and I replied not knowing it was the Hillary Group. I thought I made a typo and went back to edit and realized it was Hillary Group when I located the post and immediately said "Oops, Apologize because I didn't know this was Hillary Group" but already had a host tell me to delete the post after I had edited and put my apology in. I replied that I had already apologized and should I delete my apology and host thanked me for editing and said no...but, I think I was probably banned anyway.

So, it was an accident and poster "J.D. Priestly" had the same thing happen when a post from "Hillary Group" was up on DU front page and she replied not knowing and got banned. Neither of us had ever posted there.

So, It can happen unintentionally.

51. That happened to me with the BOG.

 

One of the BOGgies posted there that critics of Obama were applying a double standard. I consider that a very serious charge, so when I saw that post (because it got recc'd up to the Greatest page) I responded to defend myself and others who don't think Obama is perfect.

I was blocked from the BOG, with the explanation, "We like our peace." Well, my view is, if you like your peace, don't start wars.

As the Hillary Clinton Group became more prominent, I wondered how they would handle such a situation. I asked one of the hosts, who replied in part:

This is how I see it, we have a Statement of Purpose that we adhere to and it's pretty specific. Hillary supporters are trashed on a daily basis in GD and there is nothing I can do about that. I can protect them in the HCG though (which I will vigorously do, that's why I am a host there). I will let people blow off steam for the crap they take in GD (because I take it myself).


So, people in HCG can say something like "Clinton's opponent are all misogynists, there's no other reason anyone would oppose Her Magnificence," and if you respond by mentioning gender-neutral reasons for opposing her, you'll get blocked. I think that's an abuse of the "safe haven" concept.

As long as they take that position, though, any disagreement with a smear about Clinton opponents will have to be addressed in an OP elsewhere. I would link to the offending HCG post and explain that I can't respond there without violating the rules of their little playpen.

20. I am disappointed that this group is becoming this.

I was afraid this would happen when it started. We began well enough, and had a lot of real discussion here. Now, unfortunately, there is more and more of stuff like this: no issues, no nothing, just ragging on another group of people that should have nothing to do with what is discussed here.

Fuck Clinton. The establishment will push her whether we argue about it or not. She'll continue running to the detriment of any real discussion. Can we not have this crap posted here? We all know she's a terrible option. The whole point of this group was to have a real discussion on reforming the Democratic Party and to what extent that is possible. I get that we're frustrated, I really do, and that we should have a place to vent. But this isn't a discussion about any issues, at all. I don't come to this group to see more crap about Clinton. There's plenty of fluff and flamebait in GD already. I come here to discuss populism and the movement leftward within the Democratic Party.

I'm sure I'm going to get torn apart for this. But I really think posts like this should be limited, or at least we should set up a stickied venting thread so that this stuff doesn't bleed over into legitimate discussion.

but I think we got the groups covered. Like I said I didn't even know I was in the H.Clinton group when replying to the OP. Now I have to parse every OP before I reply else gentle persons might become upset.

That being said, there's an inordinate amount of "lefties" who approach politics from the center right that have been steadily populating DU drowning out actual "lefties".

I can't personally wait till the elections are over. I fully intend to hold HRC's feet to the fire if she wins but you know what's going to happen anyway. The apologists will come out in swarms making excuses.

But that's exactly the strategy. For example, nothing stops the tea party and Republicans from suggesting and trying to implement crazy disastrous legislation. Yet we inch closer and closer to their demands with each election. I like Bernie asking for things that seem pie in the sky, that's how the other side gets what they want.

We need to start demanding more populist legislation and never ever stop. Maybe then we can become a more balanced union instead of the 1% funding both sides and winning every fucking time.

That's how it's been done through history, fund both sides of the war and your always a winner.

I have never been a follower. There are those of us that think for ourselves but get shoved into a corner because we're not with the "In" crowd. My step father used to berate and physically abuse me to the point where I have PTSD. Then it stopped. Why, because I learned to hit back. Once that happened he was all mouth, of which I could just ignore.

We have to push back and push back HARD! O's populist rhetoric during his campaign made me think that might happen, then during his acceptance speech he announced he was a "New Democrat", meaning" I'm republican lite.

53. Being banned from there, like much else surrounding the Clinton campaign

is inevitable.

The posts associated with the negatives of Clinton, her campaign, and her supporters here at DU may diminish greatly in this group as the topic ages, but for now they are essential for those of us exploring this group and what it offers. I find it reassuring that others, many others, share my dislike for what appears to being forced upon us.

In the course of the last few days a decision to avoid DU for a while was not made; it was the strength of the voices in this group that kept DU from going the way of the television for me. Thank you all for the courage to be here and speak what has to be said.

And for the moderators of this group, thank you for allowing people like myself to see that we are not alone and that we have choices, that better candidates will come forward, and better policies will be pushed for.

55. I got banned from a DU group (that will remain anonymous) for cracking wise.

Some folks just don't have a sense of humor!

58. The selling of souls to the 1% is not for everyone.

60. I just want to say thank you all. You are kind souls

watching the big experiment that is Democracy. What ever happens to it happens to us. I will always backup my fellow populist and that means everyone in this thread. You've all made my 10 years here worth it and I'm not going anywhere. I will continue to sing the populist method for my little girl and for you all. We need a tide that lifts all boats (yes including the BOG and the Hillary group) not just the elite few and I know Hillary says she's that person, but she's just not.

I was upset after Obama's populist rhetoric and then said he was a "new Democrat" during his acceptance speech and I just see that happening again.

You all are why I stay.

Love you guys and gals.

Peace.

61. Let's pretend there was an internet 50 years ago

for you to go to the Hillary Clinton group and question anything she has said or done is on a par with someone going to a Beatles fan page and saying they think Peter "Herman" Noone (of Herman & the Hermits) is cuter than Paul (he wasn't - but you get my drift. And, yes, I'm that old). Anyone who did that would have been banned from the Beatles group and mocked mercilessly.

64. A bad attempt at humor

comparing "Beatlemaniacs" of 50 years ago with Clinton's fan base today (but 50 years ago we were adolescent girls so we had an excuse).

65. Ah thank you for the clarification.

I exercise bad humor all the time at home, everyday. I get more eye rolls than laughs but hey what are your wife and little girl for?

But I agree. I have tried to talk facts with them about the TTP yet all I get are non answers and name calling. I can hear that when I pick up my little girl from grade school. On DU I used to roll my eyes but I've discovered if you let the false or ignorant statement be, it can seed.

My and all little girls and boys deserve a better future than what's coming.

Thank you dflprincess for sharing, it was a privilege.

66. Nailed it perfectly. Those groups are merely fan clubs with a side of online "slam books".

 

Reminds me of what I heard somewhere about the Clintons keeping careful tabs on who crossed them.
If we actually went into some of those groups just to check on what they were saying, and then pulled posts over that offended us so we could jeer at them - that is what, IMO, those groups really do.
Echo chamber, fan clubs, junior high slam books.
An awful lot of GD OPs, IMO, belong in those gated groups.
