Blogs That Don't Print the Truth About Kos Must Be Controlled By Kos

The news that the most well-known blogger in the pseudo-progressive blogosphere spent six months training(?) at the CIA is certainly shocking. It goes to the foundation of what the blogosphere is about and what prospects it offers for real change. And yet, some blogosphere outlets have NEVER printed a single story about this news and have banned writers who have done so.

There can only be one reason for ostensibly leftist blogs failing to print the shocking news about Kos. Those blogs punishing writers for publishing this information are controlled formally or informally, directly or indirectly, by Markos Alberto C. Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ) and, perhaps, by those to whom MAMZ reports, if indeed he still maintains some variant of whatever relationship he had during the six months he spent at the CIA in 2001.

And yet, there are many, many blogs in the pseudo-progressive blogosphere that have a policy of discouraging criticism of ex(?) CIA contact MAMZ. I have been banned from MyLeftWing, Culture Kitchen, MyDD, MyBlueMass, As Ohio Goes, and Blue New Hampshire for publishing negative information about Kos.

Is there any good reason why we should refrain from publishing negative information about a pseudo-progressive who opposed gays in the military, supported Ronald Reagan, supported George H.W.Bush, tolerates and encourages misogyny at his blog, and still supports "states rights," which is an ideology also advanced by the Klu Klux Klan?

Is DailyKos a White Supremacist Group?

Why in the world would we want to refrain from "Kos-bashing"? We should be bashing MAMZ just as furiously as Germans should have bashed Hitler when Hitler was trying to take over the world.

Does that sound alarmist? When David Duke, the KKK leader, was running for president, he too was an advocate of "states rights," just like Markos Alberto C. Moulitsas Zúñiga. If you think the United States has become a dictatorship with George W. Bush in power, then just imagine what it would be like if Markos Moulitsas or David Duke came to power.

When I see ANY leader acting like Adolph Hitler, I say, "Never Again!"

Any blog or news outlet that steadfastly refuses to report the Truth About Kos must be an "asset" of Kos or influenced by Kos.

I would appreciate you stopped using my name and the name of my site in your vanity campaign.

You were not banned from culturekitchen. I changed your registration because I will not allow :

1. anybody to post death threats on my site without impunity

2. anybody to come into my site and famebait our writers by calling them KKKlaners

3. you or anybody to spam my site with links while adding no content whatsoever. it was because of you that I decided to add a "NOFOLLOW" rule to all the links coming out of the forums for your abuse of my hospitality.

I am utterly furious but more so offended with your actions and your behaviour. You have abused my trust and have damaged your reputation in my eyes. you have no credibility whatsoever with your crusade against DK.

You're actions are giving DailyKos more importance and influence vis-a-vis the POCsphere than it merits. Stop whining about that site and start focusing on supporting the true representatives of the POC blogosphere.

If you can't wrap your head around how you undermine the work of other people of color in the blogosphere, then you are just a waste of time.
