"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

HillBuzz Unmasks Modern Leftist Democrats

Wow!

Kevin DuJan of Hillbuzz.org really went for it in "An Open Letter to Rush Limbaugh and His Listeners — With Notes on the Democrat Civil War Already In Progress" (h/t to Fuzzy at Fuzzy Logic for pointing out this post). Check it out.

From DuJan's post:

"None of this is being reported in the media, but a Civil War in the Democrat ranks has been raging since May 31st, 2008…a date every Hillary Clinton supporter knows well, because that was the date of the Democrat Rules & Bylaws Committee Meeting where Howard Dean (then-DNC Chair), Donna Brazile, and scores of other Kool-Aid slurping Obama flunkies took off their masks and revealed the full extent of the Leftist coup that had taken over the party. This was the day when the DNC took delegates Hillary Clinton won in Michigan away from her and handed them to Obama (despite the fact he wasn’t even on the primary ballot in that state, because he removed his name when his campaign realized he’d come in third in that race).

"May 31st, 2008 was a day when Hillary 'babes' (as you call us sometimes) like us flew to Washington in large numbers to stand outside the Marriott near the National Zoo, where this Rules & Bylaws Committee Meeting was held, to shout for the DNC to count all the votes and operate the nominating process fairly — but they refused. The anger over that day has never abated. In fact, it’s grown considerably since then.

"This was the determining factor in millions of us leaving the Democrat Party for good. This was the day when the P.U.M.A. movement began — in response to Donna Brazile’s calls for 'party unity' following the Rules & Bylaws Committee Meeting, we 'Hillary babes' said 'Party Unity My A$$' (or People United Means Action, depending on how you want to phrase it). Exit polls showed 8 million PUMA voted Republican for the first time in our lives in the fall of 2008…casting ballots for McCain/Palin (and in truth, mainly for Palin, whom we support, and not to a small degree because she receives many of the same attacks lobbed at Hillary Clinton all these years).

[...]

"This is also when most of us stopped using the term 'Democratic Party', since there’s nothing “democratic” about these people. They are the 'Democrat Party', and even that is hard to acknowledge because they really and truly have proved themselves to be enemies of real democracy.

"I’m still registered as a Democrat here in Chicago (because the Cocktail Party GOP establishment so disgusts me I can’t will myself to party-ID Republican, and there’s no Independent option here in Illinois) but I can’t imagine ever voting for another Democrat again, as long as I live. To Hell with Democrats. This was solidified for me on Christmas Eve of last year, when Democrats rushed Obamacare through the Senate in the dead of night, through various secret channels, and every single Democrat voted for its passage (even supposed moderates like Evan Bayh in Indiana, who quickly realized his vote would cost him re-election…so the coward retired rather then face angry voters over what he did). I just don’t believe Democrats should be given elected office by voters because they cannot be trusted to even read bills before they vote on them, not even when said bills seek to permanently alter the entire American economy. This is reckless and reprehensible to the point of treason.

"I was a Democrat for 32 years before the heavy-handed push for Obama alienated me from the party…and I borrow what Hillary Clinton said about Republicans once, back when she was a Goldwater Girl, and will paraphrase by saying that I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me.

"After it beat me to a pulp, called me a racist, berated and insulted me, and used Alinsky Rules to hit me with everything it had. Not just me, but all Hillary supporters.

[...]

"The media has never talked about this. I don’t remember ever hearing you talk about it. But one of the biggest reasons the Democrats are in the trouble they’re in right now is because of how frequently the Left and the media (one and the same, really) called anyone who opposed Obama a RAAACIST. If you supported Hillary Clinton in the primaries instead of Obama, you were called a RAAACIST. If you were someone like me who fundraised for Hillary, who hosted events for her, who put yourself out there and wrote columns advocating her or did media spots talking up her candidacy, you were aggressively targeted by the Obama campaign and his supporters…relentlessly attacked as a RAAACIST! and assaulted with the Alinksy Rules for Radicals in hopes of breaking your spirit, terrorizing you, and making you abandon Clinton for fear of having these people destroy your life, ruin your business, and make you an absolute pariah in your community.

"This is what the Obama campaign, the media, and the DNC did to DEMOCRATS.

"For almost a year, the Obama zealots and the Left waged all-out-war not just on Hillary Clinton, but on lifelong, loyal, dyed-in-the-wool Democrat voters like me. This came straight from the top, from Obama himself. Both he and his wife Michelle called the Clintons racists. Obama’s surrogates like James Clyburne, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, John Lewis, and others called Geraldine Ferraro, Madeline Albright, and others racists. The Obamas toxified the South Carolina primary, in particular, with foul race-baiting and turned North Carolina and Indiana into racial powder kegs by ramping up accusations that anyone not supporting Obama was a vile racist that needed to be pounded into the ground.

[...]

"This is similar to the grief that I’ve received here in Chicago for being a gay Hillary former Democrat in Boystown who never drank any Kool-Aid, never stopped speaking out against Obama, and who recently fully came out as a conservative — in the face of the same kind of Alinsky-grade, identity-based, 'traitor' hectoring that Tubbs Jones got for being a black woman who didn’t kneel before the Obama altar.

[...]

"Those of us who worked Democrat campaigns in the past put up with union associations and the other unsavory aspects of being a Democrat because we were told this was the only way Democrats could win…with union muscle. But, in 2008 the Democrats revealed themselves to be an SD6 [from the TV show Alias] conglomeration of every force in this country that wants to bring America down, tank our economy, usurp our Constitution, and lay waste to the American way of life.

"Democrats took off the mask. The DNC reveled in being fully Leftist-controlled. Crazy people unapologetic in their Communist admiration took over positions of great influence not just in the DNC, but in our state and federal governments as well.

"I’m horrified by that.

"Hillary supporters are horrified by that.

"And we have not sat back quietly to allow this to happen without a fight."

Again, I highly suggest reading the whole piece. It is very interesting.

Schisms have been growing in the Democratic Party since the late 1970s (although their roots are in the late 60s). If DuJan is accurate, perhaps things are far worse than I thought in the rank and file of the Dems. If more non-Leftist Dems refuse to be "Obamafied" this could cause a severe, and long overdue, readjustment within the Democratic Party and pull it back to the center-Left (and reality).

It's also interesting to note the similarities with DuJan's experiences with the Dem Left and those of Black Conservatives and conservative women with the Dem Left-- which I wrote about in my post "Jeneane Garofalo and the Left Reinvent 16th Century Tyranny."

  1. Good post and thanks for the h/t. :)

    The PUMA's are all pi$$ed beyond belief . . . with very good reason. I agree that the dems are in big trouble if even half of what Kevin says is true (and based on Bill Clinton's and even some of Hillary's actions of late, I'd say that the Clintons are themselves working to salvage the party).

    The part I found most interesting was that Kevin had "come out" as a conservative. I almost fell off my couch when I read that. I've been reading HillBuzz (somewhat irregularly, but then, I don't really read anything regularly) since they posted that open letter to President and First Lady Bush, and I never thought any of them would actually self-identify as conservative. Then again, I never thought I would, either, until 9/11. :p
