Daily Kos, like, Promotes Hate Speech

We have reported extensively on how promoted and welcomed anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic hate speech, along with 9/11 denial, on its disgraced Action Forum. Bill O'Reilly has recently described how the left-wing Daily Kos encourages similar material. Here are things you can do to expose for what it is.


O'Reilly defends comparison of Daily Kos to Nazis and KKK says,

From the July 16 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:

O'REILLY: Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly. Thank you for watching us tonight. JetBlue and the radical left -- that is the subject of this evening's "Talking Points Memo."

What do you think of someone who says the following: "The world would be better off without him." That after Tony Snow announced his cancer had returned. "The pope is a primate." "Evangelicals are nut cases." "Better luck next time," after an assassination plot against Vice President Cheney in Afghanistan. And "Some attacks against coalition forces in Iraq are legitimate."

All of those thoughts were posted on a vicious far-left website called the Daily Kos, one of the worst examples of hatred America has to offer. This summer, that website is having a convention in Chicago. And only one major corporation has stepped up as a sponsor. That company is JetBlue, the airline that melted down last winter.

The Daily Kos' defenders tried the same argument that did last year, and O'Reilly answered it:

BRADY: You know, there's no question Daily Kos is clearly on the left. And one thing that comes up, especially with these open forums is you get a lot of lunatics come up. And I'm sure -- I look at this site.

O'REILLY: You know, you - look, I have my own website. We don't -- open forum is bull. All right? You can regulate what's on your website. Now, this kind of a thing has got to be troubling to, I think, millions of Americans when they hear it. Because this is the only, as we pointed out, sponsor. The only one. Everybody else stays way away from this.

We have proven that was exercising editorial control over its "open forum," which makes it responsible for the content. Perhaps we should sign up at the Daily Kos and post things about Barack Obama's and Hillary Clinton's association with the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton, and see how long our posts remain online.

Meanwhile, investigation of the Daily Kos reveals exactly the kind of material that appeared at's Action Forum.

Who will oppose Israel? (0 / 0)

America's blind support to Israel is the result of the Jewish lobby. The neo-cons and other groups that seek to subvert America have always had an opposition force against them. The Jewish lobby owns Republicans and Democrats and stands unopposed. The result is silence against Israel’s crimes against humanity and the undermining of American interests and moral authority. Many have stood up against Bush but what politician or commentator has the fearlessness and moral character to stand up against Israeli policies? The silence can end on this blog. I would encourage others to regularly post comments that reject Israeli atrocities against humanity.

Euston Meat Beat Manifesto

Were Jewish interests "behind" the Iraq War? Alone, hell no. But were they a factor? That's not even up for debate. Of course they were. Have you been able to argue with a rightwinger who didn't point to Saddam Hussein rewarding the families of suicide bombers as supporting terrorism (then equivocating it with the US/Al Queda conflict)?

...Trying to suggest that there is zero influence from the rightwing neocon segment of the Jewish lobby in Bush's administration is just blithering stupidity. "No basis in fact or logic" is a claim you're simply unable to substantiate. Criticizing Israeli policy and US policy regarding Israel is all I've done and you won't be able to produce a shred of evidence otherwise. What you also have to overlook is that I also think the Palestinians have been a bunch of incompetent dishonest scoundrels.

But this is what serves for debate...yell "anti-Semite" first and rest on your little perch. The fact that you can't tell the difference between somebody like me and David Duke is exactly what fuels the rise of anti-Semitism abroad. If you call everybody who even slightly disagrees on Israel or says "Jewish" instead of "Israeli" an anti-Semite, the charge loses effectiveness. You're the one responsible for watering it down. You just end up pissing off people like me who are trying to rationally find an end to this inane and pointless struggle, and you feed the real anti-Semites even more fuel.

You're a goddamn worm, whatever the hell you are.

A comment for A Ride with Heinrich Himmler cites what are apparently four examples of anti-Semitic hate speech at the Daily Kos

Here's the first four I found. (0 / 0)

According to the study, pro-Israel lobby groups have exploited the sensitivities of major media outlets and of US politicians to campaign contributions to maintain their sympathy for Israel regardless of what it does in the region.

By AIPAC's last count, 11 US senators were Jewish and only 2-3 % of the population is Jewish. I am sure there are similar ratios in the House of Representatives

Because each and every congressman is fearful of AIPAC. So they all toe the line, and the exceptions to this rule get hammered ruthlessly by America's most powerful lobby.

The irony is that this is the first time in history that a tiny nation (Israel) has manuevered a superpower to fight a war as its proxy. It's usually the other way around. And of course the oil was going to pay for it all. Just ask Mr Wolfowitz about that. Alas, in America it is not politically correct (or if your running for office, politically wise)to question the dangerous influence that Israel has over the foreign policy and national security of the United States

Palestine: Nobel peace laureate Corrigan injured in anti-fence protest quotes the following:

According to the opposing view, the United States’ support for Israel does not advance American aims, it jeopardizes them. The explanation for the support is to be found in the activities of the Israel Lobby, also known as the Jewish Lobby, or as AIPAC (the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee), which uses its formidable influence to shape American foreign policy in accordance with Israeli interests. The opinion as most recently been associated with an article published in the London Book Review, co-authored by Professor Merscheimer of the University of Chicago and Professor Walt of Harvard University.

Why Lieberman's Independent Run Will Fail talks about "Jew Lieberman," to use's terminology.

Reason # 1 (0 / 0)

The Repubs will get behind Joe and probably try to rig the elections. Joe voted quite a lot with the repub on issues of war. They will support him and finance him under the table. I pray he quits first but even if he does he will probably work for the Jewish Lobby.

As with, the Daily Kos community does not confine its hate speech to Jews. The phrase "Pope Nazi" also appeared in's Action Forum.

Is Ratzinger still a Nazi ?

There's heated debate about whether it's appropriate to call Ratzinger the Nazi Pope. It is not clear he's still influenced by the Nazi teaching during his childhood, however, it is clear he was in the Nazi Youth Camp and he is notoriously ultraconversative.

I'm pretty tired of hearing people say we should not question his past, and he was just a child etc. Yes, he was a child, but we're talking about the spiritual leader of Catholics. What is wrong to hold him to high standard? Why can't they choose another cardinal with better image? If he didn't have the courage to resist joining Nazi Youth Camp, probably we should not expect him to be the leader as well.

I will call him Nazi Pope, plain and simple, for his past, more importantly, for his current facist doctrine.

Call Ratzinger Nazi Pope

I hate the liberals whining when they do not know how to fight. I don't care whether this guy is a real Nazi or not. He's an ultraconservative and we need to demonize him as soon as possible.

The fact is he was in the Nazi Youth Camp when he was 14.

In his memoirs, Ratzinger wrote that he was enrolled in the Nazi youth movement against his will when he was 14 in 1941, when membership was compulsory. He said he was soon let out because of his studies for the priesthood.

Two years later he was drafted into a Nazi anti-aircraft unit as a helper, a common taks for teenage boys too young to be soldiers. A year later he was released, only to be sent to the Austrian-Hungarian border to construct tank barriers.

Somebody has to dig out more dirt of this guy.

This Daily Kos-er admits that Ratzinger was forced to enroll in the Nazi youth movement, and was drafted into an anti-aircraft unit. Now tell us, who forced the Daily Kos and to publish and promote anti-Semitic material that could have come directly from Hitler and Goebbels?

Pimps, Pedophiles, Priests, and Fox News

Oh, I'm a religious bigot alright. (8+ / 0-)

I make no secret of that. I despise religion, all of it, even that part that does good, because it's all based on lies. Like the war in Iraq, no good will ever come out of it, because it started with a lie.
I concede 'most' priests were probably not pedophiles.
They didn't molest children physically, only developmentally, teaching them to remain forever infantile emotionally, with this idea that if they are only 'good boys' or 'good girls', a magical 'father' will break the physical laws of the universe on their behalf.
Molesting them emotionally, by teaching them that the most joyful aspects of their physical nature are dirty, sinful;
Abusing them intellectually, by teaching them there is an all-powerful authority they must never question. I could go on and on.
The church, in particular the Catholic church, is an evil organization, that has nothing much in common to do with the man they claim they follow. The whole thing is based on lies, beginning with the fact that it was founded by Jesus- not so.

...I don't think my opinion on this particular topic (3+ / 0-)

Recommended by:
Brian Bell, mango, sarasson007

is going to have any influence on whether religious people decide to support Democrats or Republicans. Or even whether they decide to post here. I don't really subscribe to the theory that individuals posting here represent anyone other than themselves.
Just to prove it, let me point out something else:
I don't think 99 percent of our soldiers are decent, law-abiding folks of good will. On the contrary, I think most of them are a bunch of murdering, racist, bullies. Who sincerely believe 'they' attacked us on 9/11, because 'they' means Moslems, all Moslems, and Sihks and Persians to boot.
So, I don't support our troops, and I hate religion. You think those two opinions of mine are going to stop anyone from voting Democratic?
You think there are people who might read this thread or some other where I post my opinion and say to themselves;
"You know, I was thinking of becoming more progressive, but that asshole A. Whitney Brown hates our troops and Christians, so the hell with it, I think I'll remain a Republican."
That would be too bad. But it's too late to change.

...Oh, one more thing. (0 / 0)

Look Arken, you confuse me with someone who gives a **** how Catholics these pope worshipping, blood drinking, superstitious hoopleheads. If they want ot live under Republican rule the rest of their lives, there's nothing I can do or say. I'm certainly not interested in wasting any of my time on this earth convincing them otherwise. Nor in censoring my own opinions in the hope of not offending them. Anyone who is offended by my opinions is welcome to turn the page.

...I never said anything about individual Catholics. (0 / 0)

Being Catholic is adhering to a set of beliefs, just like being a Republican. No one is born Catholic, that's why they have confirmations.
Adults can choose their own belief systems and at some point they must take responsibility for their choices. The Catholic church is a force for evil in the world, no different than the KKK, the Republican Party, or the Westboro Baptist Church.

The Daily Kos includes at least one supporter of the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton:

Al Sharpton Decides To Be A Piece Of ****
by Richard Platypus
Wed Mar 14, 2007 at 03:28:30 AM PDT

Ok. Let it be known that this diary is coming from the perspective of an Al Sharpton supporter. I'm a New York activist, so I've marched with the guy many times. And I like him; I think that New York City is a better place for the fact that any time a politician thinks about defying humanity to score a centrist political point, he needs to worry about Al Sharpton to keep him in check with scores of protesters (and I've been among those "scores", standing out in the cold with picket signs, a number of times).
So my question: What the **** is this ****, Sharpton picking a fight with Barack Obama?

We actually agree with "Richard Platypus" that Al Sharpton is a sack of fertilizer, not for allegedly picking a fight with Obama but because racist and anti-Semitic filth stinks to high heaven whether it comes from Sharpton or the Klan, but it's interesting to note that he "marched with the guy many times." We wonder whether he yelled "Kill the Jews" in Crown Heights or called the owner of Freddy's Fashion Mart a "cracker" or a "bloodsucking Jew," like the rest of Sharpton's entourage.

Here is how you can help destroy as a viable political entity before next year's elections. We see MoveOn as a higher priority than the Daily Kos, because of its widespread fundraising and mobilization capabilities. Nonetheless, plenty can and should be said about the Daily Kos as well, and we are quite capable of compiling a collection similar to the one we have on

(1) this page to show her what you are talking about.

(2) Write to Bill O'Reilly at oreilly "at" If he thinks what the Daily Kos did is bad, wait until he sees what says about Jews, Catholics, and even African-Americans.
