Free Republic Sucks
Free Republic Sucks ^ | May 1, 2003 | By Edgar Hall, Political Editor

Posted on 05/01/2003 11:06:14 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Well, well, well. And yet another anti-Freeper site springs up:

http://www.freerepublicsucks.s5.com/crackdownmay2003.htm

We must be doing something right to have so many Bush haters hating us so much.

Well, we wish you luck. You'll have plenty of competition from FR haters.

But please do not question the current administration.

If you don't like it here, make like an airplane and just jet.

And today was a good day...

Being a lurker more then a poster, it's easier, not being personally involved, to evaluate various members from what they write. Over time some have come across to me as seriously deranged. When later I don't see their names I assume they moved on whether voluntarily or not. Sometimes, when lurking at other sites which have no boundaries of taste and reason and decency, these people show up again and what they write confirms my observations. Many sociopaths and psychopaths who all have underlying themes and one is that they hate the American government which to me means they hate America and our people.

IMHO, the Democrats are the domestic enemy of the Constitution.

In a nutshell, this is what I've repeated time and again.

And today was a good day...

They hate. That is all they know.

During the Clinton Occupation, I was rather vocal about my mistrust, dislike, and overwhelming contempt for Billyjeff. But I dont recall ever going as far as these twits with the new website. It cant be political, its too rabid, even for them, its got to be hate.

I went there and this is a riot. It describes the anti-Freep sites that they link to (except, interestingly, DU) but there are two lessons here:
  1. the hard-core anti-Freepers can't play well with others and keep splintering,
  2. the most active area of discussion is how much they hate FR and how wronged they were,
  3. yes, in fact they do fly in and try to disrupt FR.

I have no idea what the point of your diatribe was but the "cats" thing does pique my interest. I've always wondered if Freepers comprised

A) mostly cat-owners, mostly dog-owners, or an even number of both, and

B) mostly Mac-users, mostly PC-users, or an even number of both.

I'm a cat-owning Mac-user, myself. Anyone else? Anyone? Bueller?

To get rid of the rats and the evil democrats you must lite the fire under the republicans feet and stop rinos from siding with the liberal rats most of the time as they are the ones that are undermining what the President wants to get done, Jim did say...


This is not the Republican Party speaking. We are acting independently of the party and, God willing, we shall prevail!

IN 2004 WE KNOCK THE RATS BACK TO THE STONE AGE. VOTE AS MANY OUT AS WE CAN And GET AS MANY REPUBLICANS IN...BUT do not be blind there are republicans in name only and they are the true danger with the main danger which is democrats. The democrats are a clear and Present danger to the country. Rinos are too, don't be fooled.

"We do suck. What a bunch of llamas. It's becoming more and more clear to me, on a daily basis, that we should pack our bags and clear off the internet as we have come to embody everything that's wrong with the World Wide Web. The only sure way to save civilization from our stupidity is for someone to invent a time machine, go back, and strangle that Bell fellow......he was probably a conservative anyway. While we're at it, we should probably see if we can't Rent-To-Own a life somewhere."
Liberals like you are sssssssssssssssssssssssooooooooooooooo funny if you don't have power. With power , you are dangerous to mankind and promote anarchy and chaos. Much like the father of liberalism, Satan ,the deceiver of nations; sometimes referred to as the father of lies and the god of this world(the unbelieving are easily deceived by his lies and his intent is to kill those who follow him.)

It's an error to think that these anti-freeper sites are liberal, leftist or Democrat oriented. Their collective posters and repliers consist mainly of bitter and revengeful FR bannees, the usual anarchist and anti-government crowd, dope-lovers and failed third-partyites mixed in with a sprinkling of filthy-mouthed aimless, rootless riff-raff with no ideology or moral base and are just there for sick entertainment.

The ironic part is that many banned freepers eagerly signed on to these sites only to find that they get regularly trashed and insulted right along with everyone else. Bashing each other, not politics or principles, is a blood sport on these sites.

These insignificant anti-everything sites pop up regularly and then fail miserably. Their forums try to copy FR, but there's little to no replies posted under their articles. Their "chat room" contributors are mainly into bashing anything and everything, including each other.

Then the disillusioned participants (all of whom you can fit into a phone booth) move on to another similar new anti-site, hoping to find nirvanah or another Free Republic-type operation, but always come up disappointed and empty-handed.

Free Republic endures.

Not to speak to any particular case, because if you learn one thing about bannings/suspensions/voluntary exits it's that you don't know the whole story.

But usually, it begins with anger. Then there's anger that everybody doesn't agree with your anger. Then you start disagreeing with everybody on everything. You get shrill and disruptive and if you don't do something that earns the wrath of the mods immediately (cursing, etc.), you end up destroying debate and discussion.

What I find bizarre is that people can't understand with all the sleeper accounts and valid disruptions of the site as well as the WP/LAT law suit that JimRob has to be cautious. And sometimes that means legitimate threads get pulled and people get suspended for nitpicky reasons, but if you are well-behaved, you will always be allowed back.

The Democrats are the formal and openly declared party of abortion, homosexualism, feminism, Godlessness, liberalism, socialism, slavery, cowardice, confiscation and redistribution of wealth, gun-control, strangling regulation, burgeoning bureaucracy, institutionalized hatred of everything good about America, religion, family, honor, tradition, history, our national, state and individual sovereignty, our very Liberty itself, and everything else I hold dear.

GOD BLESS YOU!!

Anti-Freepers are a strange group in my opinion. They get banned and then spend years bashing the site instead of moving on and doing something worth their while. Its a sickness much like mental illness. Now if they went and proved that they were right that would be different. But they don't and what they prove is they are nothing but whiners and weepers.

I agree, these people need to get lives.
I have not been here that long. In the long run, if you are not mean, or abusive most posts seem to be welcome here. We all like good debate, personal insults are not debate. Facts backed up with references are. Maybe I am not here enough (my kids will tell you otherwise) but I have yet to see something zotted that I disagree with.
No matter what, FR is the best news source on the web. If you don't want to read the comments, thats fine. However, comments or not, one can find any information needed here.

"I want to try to undermine an effective conservative group.com" :-)

Trust me, nobody's being undermined. And don't get me wrong. If people feel comfortable somewhere else because they don't like FR, that's great. For example, the most active "anti-FReep" site is the first one. I won't mention it, but it's far more tightly controlled than FR and it doesn't endure any catty postings about FR. So, it's no longer anti-FReep, anyway. The rest are pretty much commisseration chat rooms for discontented FReepers.

FRS has been set up to put Jim Robinson's Free Republic site under the microscope. Where does all the money actually go and why does he keep banning posters for spurious reasons? Contact the webmaster if you have information. We guarantee your anonimity.

What nonsense. There have been no "questions" asked in good faith. Any questions that are answered with fact are rejected by the "questioner" and they start crying when they are rightly mocked for refusing to accept the truth. boohoo

Those who pose serious questions and are able to discuss appropriately are not banned. He's talking about throwing out an accusation and sticking by it no matter what facts are presented to refute the claim, then crying about being slammed and "not being able to ask questions".

One such dissenter was Christopher Knight, who also found himself out in the cold recently for not loving the "cokehead felon". This time the reason Jim gave wasn't "Saddam apologist" but instead "Liberal". Which he isn't, unlike Robinson who used to be a registered Democrat.
