The Commissar Smokes Out a Ringer

The KGB had nothing on the Commissar from the Politburo Diktat. (In both meanings of the phrase.) Comrade Commissar, using his secret network of spies, has discovered a plot amongst Agonist readers to funnel global resources into the fight to remove Goerge Bush. It's unclear from the message whether that relates to financial resources, which would be illegal, but it certainly does not rule them out:

I further believe that the present Bush administration poses a serious threat to world peace and is incapable of doing other than "stirring up the pot" by its involvement. ... During the past months I have studied both the history and activities of both George W. Bush, and his administration, and have come to the conclusion that they are dangerous to world peace, and should either be impeached or voted out of office a.s.a.p. Being a non-American, you may wonder at my audacity; yet their exploits now encompass the globe, and we are many who are not pleased about it!

The author of this message, Lovernuts (I kid you not), wants to set up a closed community where he can rant in private to the already converted, because he's tired of actually debating with people who disagree with him:

Daily I have read news posted on the Agonist and discover that many folks (though, not all), support this view. I have further discoved that many folks are frustrated by the rampageous trolls and the ensuing arguments that abound there. It then occured to me to create a website and install a YaBB Bulletin board on it, and only invite those who share a common goal. Initially I solely assume the responsibilty of inviting potential members who might share the same goals. This is decided by my first reading ALL posts of a previous member to ensure Bush supporters are not included [emphasis in original].

What Lovernuts is admitting is that his ideas fail in a free-market, free-speech environment and so he is taking his ball and going home. Read the entire piece on the Politburo Diktat. It's a great indicator of the left's increasing inability to abide dissent and increasing proclivity to simply ban it. And they consider Bush to be a threat to liberty and civil rights?
