Know-it-all Nadin pundificates: "Yup...the schism on DU is deepening"
Time to catch up with our old friend, Know-it-all Nadin Brzezinski (seen above, in action as interpid girl reporter Nadin Abbott, sniffing out yet another story). In today's episode, Nadin pundificates on the state of DUmmieland, here in this THREAD, "Yup...the schism on DU is deepening."
This is an occasion, of course--as in all Nadin threads--for the all-knowing, condescending one to make herself look superior and sagacious. And then, when there's some blowback--or even anticipating it--she takes on the martyr persona, suffering nobly under the bullies. It's like Nadin has a permanent "Kick me!" sign taped to her back.
So let us now check in on the Doyenne of DUmmieland, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson--btw, I like what Nadin is doing with her hair--is in the [brackets]:
Yup...the schism on DU is deepening
[Nadin starts out her thread with a "Yup." Uh, Nadin, no one asked you anything.]
And you know what? I actually don't mind it, one bit.
[Well, if you're OK with it, Nadin, then I guess it's alright.]
The fissures were there all along.
["Schism." "Fissures." Nads has been hittin' the ol' thesaurus again.]
And the reality is that uggly commies...err lib'ruls, will be blamed for 2014 and 2016.
[Nostradummie Nadin predicts FAILURE for the Dems in 2014 and 2016. Here's hoping Nads is RIGHT about something for a change!]
The problem is...that threat is not working anymore.
[The problem is...we can't figure out what you just said, Nadin.]
The elites used to understand that you have to give something to the people from time to time...they are really are not.
It's not because Democratic Party elites hate lib'ruls (some do).
[Earth to Nadin: The Democrat Party elites ARE lib'ruls, you DUmmie!]
it's time for the people, the base, to smell the coffee and realize the party of business does not want the lumpen proletariat anymore.
[As long as we don't have to smell the lumpen.]
Behind closed doors both parties are now lumped together.
[I sense a theme.]
Then we have the current NSA kerfunkle. . . .
[And a lumpy kerfunkle it is.]
Oh I expect acid responses, it goes with it. I am the enemy of the party, for I am an uggly and dangerous lib'rul.
[It's all about you, Nadin. Oh, and here come them acid responses . . .]
UNTIL THE GOP IS ELIMINATED AS A POLITICAL FORCE BEING ANTI DLC IS USELESS. . . . UNTIL THEN ALL THE COMPLAINERS ARE JUST USEFUL IDIOTS. . . .
as a party wonk, I speak with a lot of people furthering our goals. I speak with Occupy. I speak with MoveOn, which is an official wing of the party. Sometimes I speak with Daily Kos posters, although in an unofficial capacity. Know who I don't speak to? Anyone from DU. Do the math. There's 5000 posters tops who espouse the ideas encapsulated by DU, maybe 300 rabid posters here.
[DUmmie Capn Sunshine, a "party wonk," says that most DUmmies overestimate their own importance and are out there on the fringe. Kinda like . . . Nadin.]
a local Democratic committee member . . . I haven't found one person who admits to posting on DU. Most claim not to have heard of it. . . . And there's very little talk about Snowden, the NSA, or anything else that brings out the rabid around DU.
[DUmmieland is a rabid hole, and Nadin is wearing the bunny costume.]
. . . anonymous DUers who are disconnected from reality.
[Nadin is NOT anonymous!]
Nonsense. It's not a 'schism' when it's a handful of people. The majority on DU lean left to FDR left to Seriously Left . . .
[. . . to Looney Left. . . .]
A few noisy capitalist status quo supporters does not a 'schism' make.
[You DARE to disagree with Know-it-all Nadin?? Welcome to the iggy list, DUmmie leftstreet!]
But but.... It's so much fun to promote infighting....And read thread after thread about "some people". . . .We should just have a forun dedicated to critiquing "some DUers" so other DUers can feel superior. Put a fence around it and let them fling poo all day.
[The Superior Poo-Flingers Forum. Nadin would be the Queen of Fling.]
You know who is fanning these flames, heh?
[Flinging, fanning, flaming--Our Gal Nads can do it all.]
It's my job to know this crap. . . .
[Yes, Nadin, we know you know this crap. We know you know ALL things. It's your job. You're a journalist, a historian. Heck, you're kind of like our lumpenombudsman-person, watching out for the little guy. How can we ever thank you?]
Oh and before you accuse me of not getting the system... politics is actually what I follow for a living, with fires.
[With fires. For her unpaid "living," girl reporter Nadin Abbott "covers" wildfires east of San Diego, for a little free online "magazine." That and politics.]
I spend a lot of time talking to voters. In the real world and labor leaders...it's my job or something.
You have a job on a small giveaway paper with a small audience that covers one small area of the country, you don't have any idea what passes for voters moods outside of that very small demographic, if even then.
[WHOA! DUmmie sufrommich CALLS OUT the Girl Reporter!]
So how much politics exactly do you cover? Don't bother answering, this reporter, who lives and covers politics in the 8th largest market, and a large county with multiple cities...is putting your ass on ignore.
[HO HO! Nadin strikes back! The dreaded iggy list!]
What a load.
[It's almost a lumpen.]
Kudos for the acid response. Expected.
My pleasure and thanks for the vapid post! Also expected. Your turn.
and another one down. and another down.
[There is no schism on Nadin's iggy list. Practically everybody's on it!]
What's your solution? Strike? Riot? Create a new party? How do the lumpen proletariat defeat the party elite?
[C'mon, Nadin! Enlighten us! You know all. You've studied history. You cover fires. What should we do? . . . Hello? Nadin? Are you there? Yoo-hooo. . . .]
What a perfect load of sh*t this is.
[A perfect lumpen.]
This is a revolting op that seeks only to divide, and the "acid responses" have little to do with your political persuasion. I expect this from you- along with all the made up stuff you post. Ugh. Oh and it's also an incoherent, self-congratulatory mess.
[DUmmie cali nails it. This is the kind of poo Nadin flings!]
Also kind of delusional.
[OK, forgot "delusional."]
Of course you don't mind it. You frickin' revel in it. Your post is baloney. You traffic in broad, almost invariably error ridden generalizations. You don't post links to back up your spurious claims. I think of you as DU's very own Madame Malaprop.
[DUmmie cali, for this outstanding, multi-part takedown of Know-it-all Nadin, Poo-Flinger Extraordinaire, I hereby award you today's Kewpie Doll! You have mental clarity about her, if nothing else.]
[Then someone re-posts this post by Head DUmmie Skinner, when he recently responded to a complaint by Nadin . . .]
I'm going to be blunt. The problem here isn't the jury system. The problem is you. Sometimes it takes a while, but eventually most DUers figure out how to get along with other DUers. My suggestion is that you try to do it too.
[From Skinner himself!]
I wonder if she put Skinner on ignore after that reply?
She actually put herself on ignore once!
[Nadin Brzezinski: A Schism of One!]
Wow Nadin you certainly got people talking with this thread.
I hope it is for the better, but I think we crossed the Rubicon from what I am hearing on the ground.
[Nadin thinks we have crossed the Rubik's Cube. The dime has been cast. We have reached the typing point. This is what she is hearing on the ground, because she is so close to it.]
I hope NOT to see it, but I expect it. There are multiple reasons for that, fall of empire, climate change... multiple reasons. . . . I think it will be in some ways rural versus urban. . . . If we have an open civil war, it will affect large regions of the country. . . . It is far more, in my view a split between rural areas, and urban areas... the cultures are radically different. Perhaps I am far more aware than most since some of my work involves covering both.
[Listen to her, people! Listen to her! Nadin knows whereof she speaks! She is a reporter. She has her ear--probably both ears--to the ground. She is out on the streets. She is out covering wildfires. She has the good rig with her. If we have an open civil war, it WILL affect large regions of the country!]
[And so we come full circle.]
