DKos announces preemptive civil war against Hillary and Clintonistas; no time to wait for U.N. mandate

The history, the logic, and the facts lead to one conclusion: Hillary Clinton's campaign is a grave and gathering danger. To suggest otherwise is to hope against the evidence. To assume this campaign's good faith is to bet the lives of millions and the peace of the world in a reckless gamble. And this is a risk we must not take.

DKos will be deliberate, yet time is not on our side. I will not wait on events, while dangers gather. I will not stand by, as peril draws closer and closer. DKos will not permit the world's most dangerous politician to threaten us with the world's most dangerous politics.

Our war on Hillary is well begun, but it is only begun.  This campaign may not be finished on our watch — yet it must be and it will be waged on our watch.

We can't stop short.  If we stop now — leaving Hillary and her supporters unchecked — our sense of security would be false and temporary.  History has called DKos and our netroot allies to action, and it is both our responsibility and our privilege to fight freedom's fight.

UPDATE (Mon Mar 17 @ 5:06pm): Ah, well, dang, it appears that due to an editing error, most of that block quotation above was actually copied from these two sources. Sorry for the confusion, Kos. But you did write (bold-face mine, italics by Kos):

It is Clinton, with no reasonable chance of victory, who is fomenting civil war in order to overturn the will of the Democratic electorate. As such, as far as I'm concerned, she doesn't deserve "fairness" on this site. All sexist attacks will be dealt with — those will never be acceptable. But otherwise, Clinton has set an inevitably divisive course and must be dealt with appropriately....

Meanwhile, Clinton and her shrinking band of paranoid holdouts wail and scream about all those evil people who have "turned" on Clinton and are no longer "honest power brokers" or "respectable voices" or whatnot, wearing blinders to reality, talking about silly little "strikes" when in reality, Clinton is planning a far more drastic, destructive and dehabilitating civil war.

People like me have two choices — look the other way while Clinton attempts to ignite her civil war, or fight back now, before we cross that dangerous line....

So file my first quotes away in the "fake but accurate" files.

Dear Mr. Dyer: As a practicing lawyer, what's your estimate of the success of a copyright infringement suit by Warner Brothers against DKos? You know, on the grounds that DKos is infringing the copyright of the Wile E. Coyote/Roadrunner cartoons?

Sincerely yours,
Gregory Koster

I really do find this meltdown just priceless.

I wonder what DKos will do if Hillary manages to actually get the nomination. Save these bits Beldar. In a few months, they could be REALLY funny.

“Screw ‘em,” Hillary Clinton told her husband. “You don’t owe [Southern working class whites] a thing, Bill. They’re doing nothing for you; you don’t have to do anything for them.”

The January 1995 Hillary Clinton “screw ‘em” admonition, is a more than apt representation of character. Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther, and goes much deeper than anyone realizes. Particularly telling, is the fact that Leon Panetta was present during Hillary's “write them off: screw them” remark. While Hillary sees herself as the “champion of the oppressed,” there’s always a kind of “good guy versus bad guy mentality.” But Hillary has treated and continues to treat all working class Americans as a species apart, and screw them she did.

Ps. Say goodbye to the small blond man with breasts, boys.

[Edit: For what it's worth, I think the "small blond man" line, which I think came from Peggy Noonan, is funny, accurate, and sexist. I wouldn't use it, but I'm not going to delete it. — Beldar]
