    Hate Bush? Wouldn't be better to promote their ideology, agenda, or canidate rather than promoting hate?

    Shouldn't they be more concerned with what their nominee can do to improve the country? I'd be more interested in hearing about the record and capabilities of a candidate than who he/she hates. Oh well, to each their own.

    You would think they could have thought of a better way of promoting their agenda without showing off hatred.

    And does "Drudge" not promote hatred? And since when was "Drudge" considered any kind of a credible voice? Drudge and Limbaugh kinda go hand in hand on the money for hatred thing don't they?

    I haven't mentioned Limbaugh, how did he come into the picture?
    Still doesn't change the topic at hand, the "Hate Bush" meeting.

    How does Drudge promote hate?


    :confused:

    I think Drudge promotes hate as demonstrated in your original post. He obviously is opposed to any gathering of left thinking peoples and would enjoy that all Hollywood types be cast in that image. But that is all the right wing nuts have is to cast images and group adversaries in neat packages that are identifiable to the more unthinking, don' you think? As far as Limbaugh is concerned, I wish I didn't even know his name.

    Drudge reported on a scheduled meeting, with a list of names of people involved or invited to the meeting. There was no other comentary or opinion. (by Drudge)
    No, I don't think so. I don't see any neat package here. It is not unthinkable that liberal Hollywood people would be involved in such a meeting( and they have every right to) and reporting on such meeting is not hate. But I do find it ironic that the meeting "Hate Bush" has not been adressed rather just the reporting of it.

    I think I can agree with you. But the media doesn't agree with either one of us. Do you think for a moment that Drudge or any of the other Right wingnut propagandists would agree that any left wing group might "have a right" to gather and purport democratic ideology? I've been closely reading and listening for years and I think not. That's the problem with right wingnuts. They don't have a democratic bone in their bodies!!! They even say that the lefties are somehow threatening their FREEDOMS. It will come to pass that this society will recognise that it is the corporations, collective right wing politics, and general misinformation from self proclaimed conservatives that is limiting, stifling, even THREATENING their freedoms. That's the way I see it.
