Not Civil: Daily Kos Blogger/OWS Spokesman Blasts GOP as 'Psychotic Cu

July 1st, 2013 10:09 AM
Jesse LaGreca became a minor celebrity in the fall of 2011 thanks to his TV appearances on behalf of Occupy Wall Street. (You may remember him for his cap, a Union Army kepi that made him look like a one-man Civil War reenactment.) LaGreca is a longtime blogger for Daily Kos under the byline "MinistryOfTruth," and this past Wednesday he loosed another of his rants, this one declaring that…

Daily Kos Week in Review: Jumping the Gun

October 26th, 2012 11:12 PM
This past week, two Kossacks speculated that if President Obama wins a second term, furious right-wingers might well respond with terrorist attacks and lesser mayhem. Another declared that he'd rather share a debate stage with Muppets than with conservatives. As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or pseudonym.

Daily Kos Week in Review: White After Labor Day

There are plenty of reasonable explanations for why Republicans have a hard time winning over black voters. Leave it to a Kossack to offer an unreasonable explanation: that today's GOP "looks and acts like a white supremacist lynch mob." That blogger also likens Ann Coulter to a rabid weasel and presents her as one of the leading apologists for this violently racist party. As usual, each…

September 3rd, 2012 8:47 AM
The week of the Republican convention found Kossacks reflecting on what they already believed about the party: that its members are plutocratic racists and its vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is a lying sociopath. As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or pseudonym.

Daily Kos Distorts Old Scott Walker Clip to Insist He Was Soft on Davi

May 22nd, 2012 11:18 PM
On Daily Kos, Jesse LaGreca calls himself “Ministry of Truth.” That moniker certainly doesn’t match his latest blog post, headlined “Young Scott Walker downplays KKK Grand Dragon David Duke's extremism”. Using a very selectively edited video, LaGreca asserts “Walker can beat up on labor rights but he couldn't bring himself to bad mouth another Republican, even if that Republican is a self…

CBS: Daily Kos Radical Leftist is Merely a 'Wall Street Protester

October 10th, 2011 3:29 PM
CBS's Bigad Shaban failed to disclose the far-left politics of an "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrator on Monday's Early Show. Jesse LaGreca, a Daily Kos contributor who wrote in August that "Hurricane Irene is like having Christmas early" for Republicans, was identified on-screen as simply a "Wall Street protester." Shaban also barely devoted any time to critics of the nascent movement.
