Daily Kos

Laurence Lewis at Daily Kos couldn’t help digressing from his blog on the San Francisco gay “pride” parade to ObamaCare. “The difference on health care between Republicans and Democrats, between conservatives and liberals? Republicans and conservatives want to take access to health care away from people,” he wrote on Sunday.

They “want to end Medicare and Medicaid as we know them. In absolute contrast, Democrats and liberals want to build on the ACA, until access to quality health care is a national birth right. In other words, Republicans and conservatives want to hurt people; Democrats and liberals want to help people.”

The week of June 16-June 24, 2012 has been designated by the homosexual community as Gay Pride Week, during which LGBT people take pride in their triumphs over “violence and discrimination against gay, lesbian, and transgendered individuals.”

Funny, but they’re not making much noise about using government to discriminate in favor of their lifestyle. One Canadian activist even declared: “We’ll only take away charitable status from the buildings where the priests live and where the people pray.”

It's only natural that the leftists at the Daily Kos would whole-heartedly agree with the sentiment of MSNBC weekend host Chris Hayes that our military men and women aren't "heroes." In a piece headlined "Stand Up for Chris Hayes," a blogger with the byline "mcgoverngreatpatriot" insisted that "dating back to Viet Nam, I have known many who have fallen in wars, and they were anything but heroes."

"Some that I can think of, came home on leave from Viet Nam bragging about how many innocent women and children they killed," the blogger complained. "They carried body parts of those they killed as kind of a trophy, made into tobacco pouches, etc. When they returned to Viet Nam, some of these people were killed. They were not heroes." It's somehow McCarthyism for NewsBusters or anyone else to protest these remarks:

On Daily Kos, Jesse LaGreca calls himself “Ministry of Truth.” That moniker certainly doesn’t match his latest blog post, headlined “Young Scott Walker downplays KKK Grand Dragon David Duke's extremism”.

Using a very selectively edited video, LaGreca asserts “Walker can beat up on labor rights but he couldn't bring himself to bad mouth another Republican, even if that Republican is a self avowed white supremacist.” But in the actual video, Walker attacks Duke as a neo-Nazi and compares him to cannibal killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

The flap over the proposed big-bucks campaign that would have played up President Obama's ties to Jeremiah Wright turned into a one-day story, but it was enough to inspire one Kossack to envision a comeuppance for "anti-human" conservative "bastards," and then to wish some "horrific" intestinal distress on John Roberts.

Sigmund Freud's reputation isn't what it used to be, but his thinking still influences behavior such as the left's tendency to psychoanalyze the right. This past week, one Kossack speculated that the forced-haircut incident suggests Mitt Romney may have a serious personality disorder, and another informally diagnosed conservatives as "completely off their rockers" and "f---ing nuts."

Over at Daily Kos, "Zenox"  wants the online world to know that President Obama is much, much scarier to Islamic terrorists than President Bush ever was. The worry is that al-Qaeda has "decided to make a showcase of a U.S. aid worker (Warren Weinstein) kidnapped in Pakistan in 2011" and this "hostage who happens to be a Jewish American (I am guessing from his name)" is a trap to sabotage Obama's re-election.

We're assured "The Taliban, al-Qaeda, Islamists do not want Barack Obama to get re-elected. Period. And frankly who could blame them? They had it pretty good during the Bush years." (Italics theirs.)

Mitt Romney has ties to quite a few states -- most notably Michigan, Massachusetts, and Utah -- none of which was on the Southern side in the Civil War. That didn't stop one Kossack from declaring that Romney's worldview is "a lie and an abomination" that would render him suitable for the presidency of the Confederate States of America.

Leftists have a stunning ability to diagnose a political malady in conservatives that they themselves have in great abundance. They denounce Fox News as more of a political organization than a news network as their remotes are stuck on MSNBC. Now the Daily Kos thinks the Republican Party is more of a "criminal organization than a political organization with any sort of ideas."

On Tuesday, the Kosmonaut known as "Troubadour" wrote a little article titled "Republicans Are Corruption Incarnate." It diagnosed the average Republican voter as corrupt, because "Republicans bribe them" every election with tax cuts. Bribed with their own money, withheld from their paychecks! As opposed to the Democrats who are awarded other people's money?

Remember all the chip-on-the-shoulder lectures from the left last year in the wake of the Gabrille Giffords shooting? Well, apparently the left has now gotten off its moral high horse and has sunk deep into the sewer of hate as you can see in this sanity-challenged thread at the Daily Kos just oozing with rabid hate at Republicans as you can ascertain from its deranged title: "Murdering, Lying, Thieving, Rat-F*** Republican Pieces of Sub-Amphibian Sh**..."

The text of the message is so chock full of the same hate that the left got on their collective moral high horse about last year that your humble correspondent finds it necessary to post the text after the break. So be warned that you are about to plunge into the nether world of extreme hate where any sign of the rational is mostly absent as we lead off with the rabid rant of the thread's author, Troubadour, who presents us with a case study of the psychotic:

It’s terrible that an author got death threats, even if he’s a sleazy hack who invaded the privacy of a prominent conservative politician. It’s equally terrible that prominent conservative donors received death threats for how they choose to use their money. But according to NBC, only one of those two stories is worth telling.

In the first case, the network was warning in 2010 of death threats against Sarah Palin-sliming author Joe McGinniss. As for the second, NBC ignored reports of death threats against the libertarian Koch brothers and members of their foundation.

CBS This Morning on Friday boosted left-wing comedian John Oliver's smear on Rick Santorum, and conservatism in general, where he equated the GOP presidential candidate with a hardcore drug like crack cocaine: "America likes its conservatism cut with plenty of baking powder because one hit of the pure stuff, and you'll wake up with Eric Stoltz...having just plunged an adrenaline needle into your heart."

Anchor Charlie Rose praised the offensive crack, which aired on Thursday's Daily Show: "Don't you love John Oliver?" Erica Hill agreed with her co-anchor, and added, "Always gives us a good laugh. We like that." Later that morning, a post on the far-left website Daily Kos praised Oliver's entire rant as "brilliant," as it supposedly "tells the truth about what the GOP really wants to do" [audio available here; video below the jump].
