Tea Party Community: Itís Just Like Facebook, But Only For Conservatives
Mediaite ^ | January 31, 2013 | Matt Wilstein

If you’re an outspoken conservative who’s sick of getting bullied by your liberal “friends” on Facebook, Tea Party Community might just be the place for you.

According to co-founder Ken Crow, “It’s a new home for conservatives and the Tea Party movement in America. It’s a social community just for them.”

Crow recently partnered with Tim Selaty Sr. and Jr. to create a “safe haven for the conservative movement where we can share ideas and thoughts and express ourselves without fear of retribution.”

But it’s not just fellow Facebook users that Tea Party Community’s founders believe are targeting conservatives...

without fear of retribution?? why are we so afraid to confront these idiots, voice our opinion and shout these cretan down. We are not going to get anywhere if we dont confront this head on and fight like rabid dogs. Whispering behind closed doors is not the solution

I’m not a Facebook person, but what I’ve heard is they have banned some conservatives speaking about the Tea Party on their site. Facebook says they are a racist group so they don’t meet their standards. Say something good about the TP and you are gone.

Uh, maybe because like FR, if you are determined to be a troll you are gone. You can't shout anyone down if you can't get on the site.

I don’t use Facebook. I would want to know more about the Tea Party Community before signing up there. Apparently it is not visible to non-members.

I just heard the other day about this. I would rather taunt my liberal friends on FB than just preach to the choir. Understanding their point of doing it, however, I like it here!

Just what we don't need. Another "social media*" web site.

They want personal information, and they compare themselves to Facebook.

I went and took a look, and immediately closed the window. No thanks.

Yeah... No. I have pro-RKBA and pro-TEA Party stuff all over my FB page.

Start talking violence in specific terms, and it doesn’t matter what your political ideology is... They pull it.

Just like they do here on FR.

General comments are ok. Talking specifics is a no-no.

Probably not. "Conservative" in governance doesn't allow for enough "liberalism" in the scope of government power for Nanny hot button issues. Gotta protect us from ourselves after all.

Socialists think everyone is a little bit stupid and need to be controlled. Social Conservatives think everyone is a little bit Sinful and need to be controlled.

A libertarian thinks your stupidity will serve a warning to others and expiation of your sins is up to you and your God, not the State.

It's an ongoing battle. 2 sides wanting more control. A small minority 3rd side thinking that whole freedom thing was a good idea.
