If DemWit readers find the following comments offensive, that is my point.
tnlib at Parsley’s Pics comments on the report and video of right-wing violence against a female moveon.org member at a Rand Paul rally in Kentucky. Read her post and view the video HERE.
i have many conservative family members and friends, none of whom would foster such behavior, but they need to know what's happening to their party.
The thuggery of the right-wing, now being manifested in physical violence, has been festering for years.
The following are comments I saved from the year 2003 – just months after the U.S. invaded Iraq - personal attacks on moveon.org participants in its “Great Goals” forum. The purpose of that forum, as the name implies, was for members to discuss great goals for America. The tragedy is that these interlopers finally managed to shut the forum down, which, of course, was their own goal.
A selection of right-wing comments – not for the weak of heart:
The first comment is a response to my analysis of Ann Coulter's jargon and techniques:
3. Ann is famous, rich, beautiful & intelligent, no wonder you envy and hate her, B.J.! She is everything you are not! It's rough getting old and knowing your dreams didn't come true, I guess. I feel sorry for you, B.J., like I do for hobos, winos, junkies, degenerates, jailbirds, pedophiles, aging hippies and other losers in the "game of life". Don't be so jealous of those of us who have made it, B.J., we just wanted it more!

This comment about Hillary Clinton just went on forever, but you get the idea:
8. CLINTONISTA=RACISM CLINTONISTA=RACISM CLINTONISTA=RACISM CLINTONISTA=RACISM CLINTONISTA=RACISM CLINTONISTA=RACISM …
The following is a “manifesto” from a really scary person:
10. To all the Democrat Basterds of this Forum and to all Democrat Forums:
To all here, you have not served your country in any sense of the word, to hell with you and your entire family. You only serve yourserlves.
To the men and woman of this forum and throughout my beloved United States who have never faced the enemy, to hell with you and your entire family.
Stay in your homes and continue to masturbate. Stay in your homes and hope for a job, for I hope it never comes to you.
The enemy is near and since you willing to do nothing to support our brave men and woman in uniform, I hope and pray for the most painful death upon you and your entire stinking family.
To the unemployed and software designers and consultants and most especially to newspaper editors who have never fought for their country and fought for their family's, god forgive you but I will not, and I pray for your destruction from the hands of the enemy.
You do NOT support this country and you do not deserve the freedom that has been so gracefully bestowed upon you.
To Hell with you all and your righteous lies. Continue to read and believe in the neo-libs of the press and I pray for a painful death to you and those of the media and their familiy's who no not what freedom is, and what it stands for.
To the politicians of this Administration and further Administrations who will not fight for their country and for freedom and not take care of our fighting men and woman in the military. I hope and pray the next terrorist act is committed upon you and your family. For you most certainly should be the first to go.
To the names I am about to present, I hope and pray to almighty god, the most painful death to you and your filthy family's for not supporting our god forsaken men and woman of the Armed Forces.
1. Barbara Streisand. She hopes and prays every day for another American and Israeli to die at the hands of the enemy.
2. James Brolin-Streisand
3. George Clooney. He believes in nothing but the destruction of our Miltiary fighting men and woman.
4. The entire Kennedy (so called) family. Thank the lord there are not many of them left. When the last one dies, I will celebrate.
5. Susan Surandan and her whore based philosophy.
6. Dick Gephardt who supports American failure.
7. John Kerry who supports American failure.
8. Tim Robbins and his fake military garb that he wears so proudly.
9. Michael Moore who hopes that all miltary personel suffer and die. He wants to disarm the American people. A gun shot from a sniper would be only too good for him. He is the evil that is the Democratic Party.
10. Tom Dachele who specically supports the enemy.
11. Katie Couric for whom I am thankful that her filthy husband suffered a painful death. She deserves no better.
12. Tom Dachelle who has never felt the pain of American fighting men and woman who are fighting for our country Freedom means nothing to this basterd.
13. Martin Sheen and his entire drug induced family.
14. Bill and Hillery Rodman Clinton. I can only hope they fall from 102 stories and it is caught on videotape for all to watch. These two god damn son of a bitches made us the laughing stock of the planet and put us where we are now.
15 Al Franken. This son of a bitch doesn't even know what he is saying and has no guts to face the music. Just like Michael Moore. He prays every day for another American death just to get a Democrat in the White House.
16. Finally to this forum to which no member has ever fought for freedom. May hell be upon you and your entire filthy family.

Just an example of a personal attack on one forum member:
1. Vicky, you are a frustrated sex kitten... It seems that you "get off" on this forum. I think you have nothing else to do, and this is your sexual outlet. When you are posting a message, your eyes roll back into your head, and you shake all over from delight. The solution is to dress up in something kinky, short skirt, fishnet stockings, pointed toe shoes. Rat up your wig real high and put on some provocative fragrance and light out for your favorite hangout. Oh, and one more thing, be sure to keep your mouth shut, because when someone get's a load of what comes out of it, they will surely run for the door.

1. Rich, are you, Dennis, Michael, Tom and B.J. "cumming together"? Please use protection!

I have visited many liberal Web sites, forums and blogs and not once have I ever encountered a liberal who would resort to such vile absurdities.
But, these people - “freepers” egged on by Bill O’Reilly and freerepublic.com - came on moveon.org’s forum to disrupt legitimate discourse and shut the forum down, and the result was “mission accomplished.”
Is it any wonder then that people like this are now resorting to physical attacks?
