Keep On Movin' MoveOn.org


MoveOn.org was caught with its pants down. Again. Supporters of MoveOn.org have posted some outrageous things in the past, and MoveOn.org has received a lot of criticism because of it. Yet, the web site’s supporters continue to demonstrate their own stupidity, ignorance, and bigotry.

Today, the Drudge Report, (http://drudgereport.com/) carried a news story from the New York Post reporting hateful, anti-Semitic comments about Senator Joe Lieberman posted on the Action Forum link of MoveOn.org.

Abraham Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, sent a letter dated August 31, 2006 to MoveOn.org that said in part;

"We recognize that Action Forum is an open forum intended to foster the free flow of ideas. Nevertheless, since such profoundly offensive content is appearing on a board clearly linked to MoveOn.org, we believe you should assume some responsibility to respond to this hateful content.”

Foxman cited examples of the postings from the site's Action Forum, that included;

"media owning Jewish pigs," "Zionazis," references to Senator Joe Lieberman as "Jew Lieberman" and included the question, "Why are the Jews so Jew-y?"

This is actually quite typical of the type of language used and behavior demonstrated by supporters of MoveOn.org and leftwing liberals in general.

MoveOn.org responded by posting (spelling and grammatical errors and all) an arrogant statement by Timothy L Hansen, Project Manager;

Action Forum

1. For those who claim MoveOn is anti-semitic (sic).

MoveOn removed the posts you are complaining about. Posts are removed in a periodic manner and as such an inappropriate post may be on the forum for a short while. When a post is made that contains something you find offensive, your should (sic) complain about the post and rate it low. You should not attack MoveOn, or the forum, because you find a post offensive. All kinds of people come here. Many are not members and not supportive of MoveOn. Comments which unfairly brand MoveOn or lie about MoveOn should and will be deleted, just as severly (sic) offensive comments should and will be deleted.

I understand you are upset that Lieberman lost the primary. The fact that MoveOn did not support Lieberman does not make MoveOn anti-semitic (sic). Accepting a political endorsement from Al Sharpton also does not make one anti-semitic (sic). People endorse, and accept endorsements, for all kinds of reasons.

- Timothy L Hansen, Project Manager (September 05, 2006; Berkeley, CA)

In their reply, MoveOn.org uses the liberal tactic of crying foul when they are confronted with their bad behavior, and trying to shift the blame and responsibility over to non-members who are non-supportive of them.

I can't remember where I found the swastika, probably through google. I added the text part myself.

Rocky - my husband and I used to comment on the MoveOn action forum. Man - they are crazy over there. One guy called me a 'glorified whore' because I am married and stay home with the kids.

They took the forum down for awhile. It wasn't just me and my husband, there were lots of us on there arguing with them.

They're crazy. That's the democrat party now. It's a shame.

MonicaR,they are indeed crazy. During election season you see them on programs like Hannity & Colmes and it's amazing how angry and hateful they become when presented with the truth. Well, as the saying goes, facts are stubborn things.
