Actually, the past few weeks... (10+ / 0-)
many Jewish posters supportive of Israel have decided that the environment created is simply too much to handle anymore. We don't want to be called right-wingers for simply advocating for the Democratic platform at a Democratic website. We don't want to be called bigots simply because we believe that our people should have the same rights to national self-determination in our homeland as anyone else. We're sick of the antisemitism that is pervasive. We're sick of the snarky mocking that comes from some when we face down hurricanes. We're sick of the borderline trutherism. We're sick of people using Georgia's murdering Troy Davis for their own political ends. We're sick of the defense of antisemites.
No, I/P discussions are not dynamic. They're the same toxic sewer they've always been. It's just that one side of the discussion has finally decided enough is enough. If the other side wants the sewer to itself, and wants to scare people away from the Democratic Party while advocating for a position completely opposed to the position our party has held for decades, then that is their prerogative. However, we believe this has no place at a Democratic website. Further, as fizziks stated, Markos should not be expected to pay for a full-time moderator for a subject that attracts few people and is not critical to the mission of this site, the election of Democrats and advocacy for the Democratic Party.
