Quote (lie?) of the Day

From Blue Oregon's Kari Chisholm, as quoted in the Oregonian's politics blog:
"A lot of right-wing jerks are posting every day," Chisholm said, "and we don't censor their" comments.
As I can think of at least a couple of "right-wing jerks" who have been banned from Blue Oregon, I smell a rat.

    Yes, I agree. I was more than a bit taken aback by the assertion at first, as well. Then I realized that Kari's point is technically correct - he doesn't "censor" comments; he bans commenters.

    Progressives live to censor!

    I don't think that this audience (or NW Republican) would call me even remotely righty.

    See for example: http://pdxape.us/ and my demand for Labor Rights for:
    Associated Portland Educators
    (A labor union, though inactive, sort of, as it is futile to expect the local judiciary to accept the notion of competition in the field of labor representation.)

    For your viewing pleasure I have taken a couple screen captures of BlueOregon's You Are Banned page. (And yes I have sent mail to Kari the liar to fix the apparent accidental banning.)


    I used user name switchhitter only once before, and raised the issue of equal privileges and immunities, and someone jumped right in to say try that again Ron.


    "'A lot of right-wing jerks are posting every day,' Chisholm said, 'and we don't censor their' comments.

    . . . would be accurate as to me as I am not a right-wing jerk, whatever that means.

    But Kari does apparently view any disagreement as motivated by some evil other, in his own mind. Just how he might precisely define it is beyond me. He just has loose lips, or speaks with a forked tongue . . you pick which.
