Please pardon a bit of self indulgence as we eavesdrop on a Facebook debate between D.J. Bettencourt and Ed Mosca over the influence of this “obscure extreme liberal blog” and the progressive online community.
Mosca, who served as House legal counsel under then-Speaker Bill O’Brien, warns that we “drive news coverage.” Bettencourt, House majority leader under O’Brien, counters that we “are the least of the NHGOP’s problems.” (Blue Hampshire founder Dean Barker makes a guest appearance.)
Ed Mosca DJ, do u realize that u r enabling Ray Buckley’s propaganda machine when u allow Dem trolls access 2 threads like this? Anything anybody posts can b yanked out of context and provided to head-trolls Dean Barker and Tucker, for coordinated attacks on GOP.
D.J. Bettencourt Unless the comments are offensive or inappropriate, I do not edit or censor the debate.
Ed Mosca DJ, I wasn’t talking about editing or censoring. I was talking about how FB posts of GOP showing up routinely on websites of head-trolls Dean Barker & Tucker to attack GOP. U r being naive if u think Dem troll’s purpose is engaging in a serious discussion. It’s not; it is 2 produce fodder 4 Dem trolls 2 attack GOP.
D.J. Bettencourt Ed, I appreciate where you are coming from. However, I trust that people have learned by now that anything posted on social media is public. It is important for everyone to bear that in mind when commenting. I learned that lesson the hard way. Second, I couldn’t care less what people on silly obscure extreme liberal blogs have to say about me and they are the least of the NHGOP’s problems.
Ed Mosca DJ, actually Dems drive news coverage with these “obscure extreme liberal blogs” combined with twitter & aggressive courting of press. All things GOP has 2 improve on. …
