Hostile Obama Supporters?
I feel a little schadenfreude when reading this diary
about the strong-arm tactics of the Obama people.
Sadly, the majority of the administrators have allowed this hostile environment to develop in our online community for anyone who isn’t planted firmly in the Obama camp. They've routinely ignored personal attacks and allowed disruptive, spam-like posts to go unchecked whenever anyone expresses support for Hillary or challenges something their candidate has said or done. There are however several front-pagers who have managed to avoid taking part in the attacks on Hillary and for that I’m grateful. But the site has grown to the point where they simply can’t – or won’t monitor it.
Let me say here that I have been surprised by the vitriol on the portside directed against the Clintons. Now if it had been coming from the conservative blogs, I wouldn't have been surprised.
And I suppose I shouldn't. Having tacked rightward to gather support for a general election matchup, Hillary suddenly finds herself up against a candidate of the angry left, in a year where the liberals are supposedly bound to win and are not inclined to support a centrist. Yes, Obama was not the original candidate for these people, but the latest converts to the cult are always the most fervent.
At any rate, the people who've fought in this tough race with the Obamaniacs have found them to be rather nasty; expect ugliness to flourish when they're not going up against their nominal allies.
