Subject: we have a serious problem
I know that you've been hitched to the Hillary
wagon since before there even was a Hillary wagon,
and I'm cool with that. I disagreed with you
from the start, but I still loves ya, man.
Me? I voted for John Edwards on Super Tuesday--
even though he dropped-out a week before,
so I don't have a horse in this race until August.
But, once Super-Duper Tuesday rolled round,
and it was becoming clear that Hill was losing
the mo', suddenly, everywhere- all at once -- the
Dem-On-Dem Hate machine rolled out, and I'll
tell you, -- it was at the Bartcop Forum where I
was finding the most ingeniously vicious friend-on-friend
political and personal attacks.
I wouldn't know what that's like...
After four months of trying to keep the peace
between the two camps, I got fed-up, and left.
From the sidelines of the Party, it looks damned
ugly to see all of this bitch-slapping going on,
when the election is so painfully and simply
ours to lose.
But Democrats wanted something besides victory.
You've attracted some DAMNED INTELLIGENT readers
who also participate in the Forum...
American Stranger Don Waller
White Rose Society
-- are part of YOUR Family Tree-- one helluva
legacy for you, and you should be extremely proud.
But, when the Forum turns on itself, it is one
horrible thing to witness. (I know that you have little time
for the Forum. But some really wretched shit
is piling up in its front yard.)
For me, over this past twelve years, it was that
enormous brain trust that has kept me a regular
Bartcop reader and Forum participant. Debate
is certainly a staple, but, DAMN-- when we've
got long-time Forum friends calling each other
racists, sexists, and even worse, there is a problem.
When forever Forum denizens start leaving in droves,
or leaving comments, as Wendell did,
"WOW! Has THIS Place Changed," because
of the non-stop hate-slinging, that was once
reserved for aiming at Republicans, there is
Bart, your being alive and able to do what you
do means a lot to ME.
I'm just not up to supporting this sort of
civil warfare right now.
Dude, your beef is legit.
Whatever's going on in the Forum, it's twice
as bad in my mailbox.
Democrats are engulfed in this hateful race war
- can we get past it?
How'd two smart dudes like you & me get in
this party? :)
Thanks for taking the time to explain - talk to
you after the merge.
