Free Republic and Immigration
"Politics of Prudence" website ^ | June 5, 2006 | Prudence

Posted on 06/05/2006 9:40:40 AM PDT by RepublicanPatriot

This links to a ridiculous conspiracy theory that Free Republic is censoring comments that are critical of the Bush Administration's handling of the immigration issue. Let's prove this idiot wrong and post lots of these comments! I'll start by saying I adamantly oppose the President's amnesty/guest worker boondoggle.

Wish I could censure some of the more idiotic comments such as impeachment and such but hasnt every thread been hijacked and we have the usual suspects deriding the president?

The only morons who have been who have been "censured" are the idiots calling for violence against illegals, attacking other members, or making certain types of comments about the President.

And BTW, this is a private website and the owner can decide what is or is not allowed.

I have often been very opposed to Bush over the immigration issue, and my comments have never been censored.

This seems to be a straw man issue to get people to criticize for its own sake.

"matthew" is obviously an idiot.

The two comments weren't exactly sterling either. The 2nd from someone who only claims to have been banned. So what.

I've never seen Free Republic censor real debate.

There are thousands of us who are in complete disagreement with the administration giving amnesty away.

Oh, and if you don't like it here, there are plenty of anti-FR sites out there for you to join.

I'm sure the Loonies would love to have you on their site. One more person to bash FR ad nauseum.

Clearly not true, since none of my posts have been deleted, that I know of.

Border Control Yes, but then, first impeach all of the liberal dems in the house and then get your head out of your butt over George W., he is our guy.

What censorship?
As a "border troll", I've had no problem.
Just stay away from ad hominens, advocating violence/radicalism and
just shake head at some comments (from either side!).

This is as close as an ordered society can get to a free-for-all.

FR is not a Republican website. It's a conservative website.

The blog can go take a hike, because I've posted millions of posts critical of Bush's AMNESTY plan and didn't get electrocuted.

You posted what will remain the most salient comment on this thread. The date of origin on the screen name of the originator of the thread often times tell us all that we need to know.

Free Republic does not condone racism or violence. Those who post racist statements or advocate violence against illegal immigrants get booted and their posts pulled.

This web site supports the war on terror and supports our Commander-in-chief and our troops. We also appreciate the job the president is doing in appointing constitutionalists to the SCOTUS and the federal courts and wish to see this continue. We support these efforts and therefore support the president and support holding and building on the conservative majority by opposing the liberals and RINOS.

Those who come here to trash the president or trash his supporters or advocate for his impeachment or otherwise to work against our objectives here usually get the boot.

Hope that helps.

Somebody's just trying to make a name for themselves. And sounds like some sour grapes are in the mix. Anyway, Bush was looking look pret-ty sorry with his DEMANDS that the ILLEGALS have a guest worker/amnesty/free ride/you can break the law status. But then he added insult to injury when old sly Fox, Mr. PESO MAN, waltzed his sorry little self into our country to stir up trouble, and Bush did nothing, which is an endorsement of Fox's corrupt behavior whether or not Senor Bush wants to see it that way...

It does not have to be one or the other, they can be both abysmally stupid and writing an intentional hit piece.

They kept yours, and deleted mine.

Funny, of all the posts I have made across the internet, the one I post in the no-name blog which relates to posts being deleted from FR, get's deleted.

Pot, kettle. Kettle, pot!

Thank you FreeRepublic!

Perhaps you should read the site. PoP is a traditionalist/paleoconservative (Kirkean, hence the name Politics of Prudence)website. The site is anti-immigration of course and unlike many at FR it is anti-intervention. But since it is a consciously paleoconservative website that should surprise no one.

Look over the site. Since it is paleo, it is no friend of the current administration, but the articles and debate there are very reasonable and polite.

As a disclaimer, I post there.

Hmmmm.

If you actually read the article at Politics of Prudence, they make no such claim. They are only reporting what Alipac is saying. Alipac is the one making such accusations.

Bottom line, respect Jim's rules, it's his board. He has been very kind and generous to all of us posters. And no we are not paid to say this, at least I am not. I just respect those that respect my opinion.

There are some very fine threads were one can post with like minded FReepers. It's a pleasure and a release from all the negativity out there from bloggers, MSM, cable etc.
My Favorite is "A Few of FR's Finest" dedicated to supporting our troops and their Commander In Chief. Thanks Billie and Mayor.

I have been vocal for border security BUT I also respect our President and will never cross the line as some do on those threads, there were times I cringed at some of the posts. And I made a decision to stop posting for most part on those threads until sanity prevails, at the beginning I was angry but have apologized to all if I offended anyone by any of my posts.

So for those that want to bash Free Republic don't try it there are way to many supporters here!!
