Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zuniga, 2% Black DailyKos, Decries Lack of Diversity in 10% Black Republican Party
It's richly ironic that Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga, writing now for The Hill, and subject of the investigatory piece, "The Indictment of Markos C.A. Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA by Justice and History (Updated with Additional Information and Counts)", is criticizing the Republicans for lack of diversity. This s so ironic, since DailyKos, the blog founded by Zúñiga while he was working (or "training"for two years) at the CIA, is a blog with only 2% Black members and 1.5% Latino members, even though MOULITSAS Zíñiga is ostensible one half Latino (and one half Greek). Maybe there are lot of Greek immigrants at DailyKos to round out the diversity at the virtually all-white blog.
Back on December 6, 2006, just a week before this Black man was banned from participation at DailyKos, I published a critique there, entitled, "Black Republicans (9.5%) ; Black at DailyKos (2%)." The scathing response to the statistically factually critique showed that Moulitsas and his minions are more interested in integrating the Republican Party than they are in integrating DailyKos.
Later, when not a single Black blogger was selected to cover the Democratic National Convention from the floor, Zúñiga raised his voice that his picks for state bloggers were not all selected, but none of his picks was Black or Latino.
You have to compare the facts to the rhetoric to identify hypocrisy, and you have to compare the cover-story to the facts to identify agents and assets of the Central Intelligency Agency. It's worth reading ALL of the research here at Truth About Kos to figure out how someone like Moulitsas Zúñiga, who claimed to be an immigrant but was born in Chicago, nonethless got himself these plum writing assignments at Newsweek and The Hill, as a "progressive voice," even after supporting Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Rep. Henry Hyde, states' rights, and opposing ALL gay participation in the US military!
Some people are willing to give people the benefit of the doubt, regardless of all of the countervailing facts at hand. I prefer to give the doubt the benefit of the doubt in light of all of the damning facts at hand.
