    Imagine if Orly Taitz wrote a diary here calling everyone who didn't agree with them "fucking idiots" in the title, posted that CT trope image of the eyeball-in-the-pyramid as a symbol of gubmint omnipotence, and said that people who weren't as worked up as the diarist were leading their countrymen to Holocaust showers.  Imagine moreover that this diary got 900+ Recs and inspired one-sided shriek-fests where citing undisputed facts that tended to argue against that diary would get you basically called a Nazi by dozens of people who would Rec each other's comments if not HR yours.  

    Now imagine it took the better part of a week for someone to get major support in their own independent diary for saying that the precipitating one was an exaggeration, and that this dissenting one didn't get anywhere near the same level of support.  Finally, imagine a large number of the crazies "activated" by that loon diary are still acting like that, still running around behaving like there are no rules, spamming namecalling, hate, lies, and CTs like there's no tomorrow while HRing anyone who so much as looks at them cross-eyed.  Showergate: A great big jellyfish handjob that will not stop spawning lies and arrogant fanaticism even now.

      briefly peek in at some of that before backing quietly out the door.  Sometimes it pays to remain ignorant.  

      Carry on, then.

      (Disclaimer:  To those stopping by this comment:  I have tipped the above comment by Troubadour because he took the time to give me a lengthy explanation of his view of events.  My tip does not indicate membership in any cadre or clique or whathaveyou that might require you to put me on a list somewhere.)

      Can you call yourself a real liberal if you aren't reading driftglass?
