Seems the folks at Hillbuzz are learning a lesson familiar to those of us gays on the right side of the political aisle, that when you challenge the left-wing orthodoxy, you face the wrath of its self-proclaimed guardians. Now they’re receiving threats worse that any of those we have yet faced. According to that lesbian diva Cynthia Yockey:
The Daily Kos and Democratic Underground have outed Kevin Dujan as the owner of the blog, Hill Buzz. They are smearing him with the false charge that that he is a racist. They are urging their readers to destroy his career and attack him physically.
Now, we don’t always agree with the folks at Hillbuzz, but do support their spunk. Gay, like us, they were big supports of a woman we have long derided, but, in the course of the 2008 campaign, came to appreciate for her tenacity, defying the prognosticators and keeping up her campaign even as the media were trying to bring her down. Even with the media working against her, Hillary Clinton won the better part of the Democratic primaries in the concluding months of the race for her party’s nomination.
And Hillbuzz stood with her, even as she (and they) faced the wrath of the PC gays, eager to rally behind the choice of their party’s left-wing.
Unlike some Democrats, these folks didn’t fall into line once Mrs. Clinton conceded. They continued to raise questions about the Democratic nominee. And many of their questions and concerns have proven prescient in the past year. They may, as most bloggers do, go over the top from time to time, but they do not merit the kind of abuse they have been taking in the wake of the Scott Brown campaign:
We have never in our lives seen the Left this crazed – and these are people who are crazy on an average Sunday, let alone a Sunday just days away from the biggest political earthquake of our generation.
The hatemail we get every day at this site has increased dramatically . . . . The attacks have actually crossed a few new lines, too, with a few of the Kossacks now attacking some of us here on a personal level.
Read the whole thing. We also experienced an uptick in hate comments in the wake of the Brown victory.
So, join Cynthia and us in supporting the folks at Hillbuzz. (She offers some suggestions of how you can help.) We don’t always agree with them, but do welcome their voice in the blogsophere.
