The Leftist blogosphere in a nutshell?

Roger Pielke, Jr., a professor of environmental studies at the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado at Boulder (and "a political liberal and a firm believer in the theory of anthropogenic global warming") had the audacity to question some of the generally accepted GW science.

Now he is treated like boil on one's backside.

What do I mean when I say that they (the leftist blogosphere) engage in embarrassing and unethical behavior? For instance, their blog etiquette is simply a disgrace, especially for people who claim to be professional, e.g., they each disallow substantive comments that they disagree with, either from me or from those supporting things that I have said.

Our local far-leftists do precisely this, so it's certainly no surprise around the local 'sphere. Time after time commenters report at other local blogs how their contrarian views are excised from the LGOMB (Local Gaggle of Moonbat Bloggers) site. Most recently, one of their very own contributors was kicked out of the Gaggle because he dared to, in a nutshell, criticize Barack Obama as being not that much different from his predecessor. (Full disclosure: All of the LGOMB except two are prohibited from commenting here at all due to a whole host of reasons, not the least of which is their ever-malleable "rules" for commenting at their site.)

Tragically, this is all becoming more and more common among the Left. Despite rhetoric about "open dialogue," "fairness" and "civility," they desire none of that if their conventional wisdom is challenged. Obama vs. Fox News. Liberal/Democrat politicians vs. healthcare opponents/tea partiers. The mainstream media utilizing outright lies in their efforts against Rush Limbaugh. And the lefty blogosphere is yet another cog in that wheel.
