Some guy named Todd Bennett (aka Blue Tex) put up a post at Dailykos. What you see above is a screen shot of the header. Here’s a little bit of the post:
First of all I will say what I please as I don’t view you as the end all of Democratic discussion. I too agree with voting for Democrats. That is why Obama will never again get my vote. I have been around the block long enough to see Pubs steal populism, while we worry about fringe issue debates. We have lost the economic trust of the American people and deservedly so. I am an American before a Democrat.
If a real labor party is needed nothing you say will stop it. Ban away Bud, but your power is symbolic. You don’t scare me and your cavalier attitude towards free speech is abhorrent. Your petulance is emblematic of the new power base of this party, and I have better things to do, like elect real Democrats who care about jobs, not Trojan Horse pseudo intellectuals who think a stint at Harvard and the willingness to compromise make a leader. The true political war is coming, dear sir, and you will be shocked to find out who your true friends are. Ban away, terrorize the site, I could care less. Enjoy the crickets, as that may be all to be heard here. You elect your new and better neo-liberals, the New Dealers like me will be back with a different label.
I have watched my party devolve from a party of hard working laborers of all backgrounds, into a morass of self righteous freaks who lather themselves in the rhetoric of progress as defined solely by them. People who would throw away years of work on health care for purity, who would allow preteens to get abortions without parental consent, and who mock my God and those who would support Him. Yes I said it. I can be a Christian Democrat. The idea that someone prays or wants to wear a cross is somehow against the rigid secular tenets of the party. I don’t stand for that. Most mainstream Americans don’t. I stand for real values, the real values of FDR, Truman, and Kennedy, and to a lesser extent, Clinton. I stand for putting paychecks into people’s hands, not excuses. I stand for the radical notion that minorities don’t need paternalism to survive, they need safe streets and opportunity. I stand for education that puts children first, and I stand for a fair trade policy that creates jobs. I stand for heath care, not corporate giveaways that mandate junk coverage, but real health care, that covers everybody through progressive taxation. I stand for not being called a nut because I pray, and the right to scoff at science when I see fit. I stand for solving global warming but not banning away our way of life to do it. I stand for labor before gay marriage, and peace before war. I stand for parental authority, and teacher accountability. I stand also, for freedom, for the right to eat what I want, wear what I want and drive what I want. If you want to change someone, educate them. It is how we achieve reform in America and the hipster Berkeley fueled paternalistic nanny stating has to go, because, in case you did not get the point, I stand for America.
Here’s two of the comments:

Go ahead and stay home next November. Convince your friends and family, too. Celebrate the end of the United States of America.
Pushing a third party is a banable offense, but I won’t feed you a donut. I doubt you’ll reply to my comment. If you’re so damned fed up about Daily Kos, why not make this a GBCW diary?
Good night, and good luck.

I simply do not comprehend why Users don’t understand that Markos OWNS this site and can do what he wants.
It’s not your private playground. It’s his.
So rants like this one are silly and incomprehensible, like yelling at your host for not decorating their house to your taste, not serving the food you like to consume, and supporting their friends and not yours.
You seem to feel entitled to your opinions. Well, so does Kos.

Remember the good old days when Cheetoville was a “community” for liberals and progressives? Now it’s private property and slaved to the Democratic party.
Want to know why? Here’s a flashback:
El Cheeto Grande states that in 2008 GOS “easily broke $1 million in revenues” which begs the question:
What does a political blog have to sell other than advertising?
I also wonder who shares in that revenue? Not the majority of the diarists.
Now take a closer look at that screenshot:
