Is it me or is there an alert swarm tonight

In several threads, I'm in the middle of a discussion about racist posts and they're locked. Yet the actual racist posts are not.

2. They are rolling on the AA group hard.

 

Just give them the torches & pitchforks & they can complete the image.

9. I don't know about lynching...

 

But I would definitely say the lynch mob mentality is flaming.

12. Yeah, I'm damn tempted to post my post that got hidden today. I'm quite proud of it

Though to be honest, if I'd known it was going to be hidden anyway, I would have just fully gone for it.

It's going to be even worse here on Super Tuesday.

14. I keep forgetting that endlessly antagonizing minority communities/posters is celebrated here

15. I'll rub elbows to that!

Say... did you know that 9 out of 10 new members are Bernie supporters?

4. i have never seen so many blatently racist posts

on DU. Its like they are coming out of the woods revealing their true sentiments. This reinforces my suspicions that a significant number of the most extreme Sander's supporters are actually gop plants. I was not on DU in 2008 but I was told it happened back then.

16. They got me good for absolutely nuthin the other day.

You can't say anything that isn't praiseworthy about Sanders, because if you do they will hide your post. And if you dare to challenge his POV on any particular issue of interest to an out-of-mainstream community, you will be hushed. It's bad.
