Clinton-supporter discovers liberal spite and anger

Over at DailyKos, writer Alegre discovers the nature of his side of the blogosphere:

This is an open letter to the progressive blogosphere...

I’ve been posting at DailyKos for nearly 4 years now and started writing diaries in support of Hillary Clinton back in June of last year. Over the past few months I’ve noticed that things have become progressively more abusive toward my candidate and her supporters.

I’ve put up with the abuse and anger because I’ve always believed in what our on-line community has tried to accomplish in this world. No more. DailyKos is not the site it once was thanks to the abusive nature of certain members of our community.

I’ve decided to go on "strike" and will refrain from posting here as long as the administrators allow the more disruptive members of our community to trash Hillary Clinton and distort her record without any fear of consequence or retribution....

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....

No, I won’t post specific attacks here. That would just be repeating the lies and the hate,....

Do the venomous attacks and lies about fellow Democrats represent [Sen. Obama] and all he stands for in an accurate and fair manner? Does this spiteful and vindictive behavior reunite our party? [emphasis added]

The anger and spite may be regarded as symptoms of the depression which polling shows that Democrats are more prone to suffer.

Hat tip: LGF.
