    The right answer to free speech is more free speech, not supression.  I'm not the one you need to write this comment to–write it to him/her in response to their dimly-lit pessimism or trolling or whatever you think it is.

    But giving a donut for a previous comment in another diary that you think is indicative of a GOP supporter in disguise?  That's silly to me.  Heck, during some of our worse site cycles, plenty of Kossacks promulgate what I consider to be GOP talking points, which I've diaried on and all, but let's be honest: it is entirely possible for Obama supporters to have contrarian views that at times sound like right-wingers'.  That cannot be the litmus test for donuts, lest we devolve into a cult.

    Keep dishing out donuts like this if you wish, and I'll take my own advice and keep calling out people who give donuts for dissension instead of just expressing their opinions back at the dissenters.

      Typical republican defense of "free speech"whenever they are called out.

      You cannot refute what I've said about this poster.

      Saying that Obama is "full of himself" with no evidence to back that up whatsoever is dogwhistle for Uppity N. That is clear Republican speak. If you want to condone that as free speech, you are within your right to do so. But don't pretend to not know what I'm talking about.

        ...allowed in Kos? That's fucking absurd. We're not supposed to be closed-minded. If there are Republicans in here, so be it. Deal with them like an adult and debate them, don't kick them out of a damn thread.

        •  they pretty much make it that way themselves (0+ / 0-)

          by being disconnected from reality.

          they are welcome though.

        •  This is not a democrat vs republican debate site (0+ / 0-)

          The purpose of this site is to elect more and better democrats. If someone chooses to spew republican talking points here they will last just slightly longer than someone posting democratic talking points on RedState.
