Bottom feeders do that all the time.....
I am thinking this person never read the thread in question, and is going strictly on hearsay. Typical.
Bloggers are useful when they actually write something and cite research and examples but just repeating heresay from other blogs is bottom feeding not journalism.
One way of looking at this is that FR must be important to the Socialists or else they wouldn’t bother attacking it. The more FR grows, the greater the attacks. Consider this a red badge of courage.
Amazing that hate speech was on vacation for eight years.
I would say that most FReepers were thoroughly disgusted at the sight of the President's pre-teen daughter dressed like a flower child, which probably caused our enemies to cut loose some guffaws, than actually made racist comments. And no, saying the word "ghetto" doesn't make one a racist.
Hey goldstein! Where was your angst when 0bama’s predessor was getting ball peen hammered daily for eight years? (crickets) I thought so.
Already posted and yanked. Jim doesn’t want to give them the hits.
I don’t believe this forum is characterized by “hate speech”, whatever that author considers that to be. She seems to be another person with a need to attack conservatives.
What was so hateful about the thread? Someone just asked who was the “thug rapper” with her.
Of course the “facts” are wrong here. Still, if comments like this had been directed at the Palin children, it would be Sarah’s fault for “trotting them out in public.”
One of the comments on the article:

Its true what they say; Right wingers are crazier than ever. They have crossed the line of sanity and truth be told should be slowly but surely silenced over the next few years. Hey look, Germany has laws to make sure their right wing zealots cant speak or assemble as a political force so we should do the same with ours. Truth be told these people are getting way out of hand and are becoming dangerous and before we wind up with our own group of Nazi’s to contend with something should be done. And it is. We actually now have a czar that is going to combat right wing hate speech....”
Yeah, we are really crazy; like we want to destroy the constitution and all.
Ok I reported my own post then.
They would have to have the ability to feel shame, first. Anyone who would take advantage of every opportunity this country offered, get a first class education in an elite school, land a cushy job, and eventually become the POTUS and STILL feel that they somehow got a bad deal deserves nothing but disgust.
no, they were just driving by. It lives at KOS, DU, Huff and CBS late night
Any chance to play the race card will be taken. It’s a great way to stifle free speech. I think the gist of any comments I saw were of the obama’s using the child as a prop. Or, as I posted on my blog, satircally, “is it now fair game to attack the obama children” given that they have now entered the political arena with such shirts. Ultimately, I decided that it was the parents who should be criticized.
Of course, this outrage is lost on liberals when it comes to making fun of Palin’s children.
BTW, I don't like Bonnie. She is hatefilled.
Seeing how the Obama family lived in the suburbs of Chicago and never tasted ghetto life, it sorta does fall into the category of “stereotypical statement”. It would be like saying that the Bush twins were trailer trash just because they grew up in Texas.
Just another leftist hit piece against FR.
We must be scoring some major points against them.
Oh, and she’s clearly gay, too!!
“They have crossed the line of sanity and truth”
I got a kick out of that one. I have never known leftists and liberals to have a monopoly on either sanity or truth. In any case, who is “Eatshit” to be the one to determine who is sane and truthful?
They pick an atypical example (the comments about Malia Obama were NOT our finest hour on FR) then trump it all out of proportion by referring to "comments so offensive we can't even mention them here". Naturally people are going to form an opinion that is FAR worse than the reality, not that I'm defending what was actually said. But why give the other side the ammunition to unfairly clobber FR with? We know who owns the MSM...
There are four words in red that are hard to avoid every time we make a post:
"Loose lips sink ships."
We each have a right to our own feelings and opinions, but we also need to think twice before publicly posting every thought that enters our head.
Relax. Did any of you really think you were going to be able to criticize Obama and not be called racist? Really? No you didn’t. So don’t act so surprised or feel the need to defend your speech. If and when you ever assert that your race is superior to all others, you’ll know it. And if you do, you need to leave this place...for a job as a Supreme Court justice.
Hey Lefty: “ Cry me a river all the way to Gov. Palin’s front door!”
Oh for the love of pete the thread was pulled, unlike the countless threads at DU or DKos that are worse, and actually contain violet threats
Eight years? What about the last six months? What about the Palin daughters, and her son? Oh, wait. Their Mom’s a Conservative. Never mind...
And I’m 100% positive that if I posted my true feelings, I’d get banned.
Funny, this same column was up earlier today and was pulled.
The Admin pulled the link this time, its better not to have tens of thousands of hits for her sophomoric hard left hate blog.
I reject the notion that the worst offense in today’s America is racism. Granted racism is bad, but the killing of millions of unborn, bankrupting those fortunate enough to survive the abortion industry, and the willful destruction of the Bill of Rights are far worse.
Getting closer and closer to CWII. There will be that straw that breaks the camels back.
Keep us posted and let us know when the violet threats turn into fire engine red threats.
I'm pretty sure this is what heaven looks like.
I'm pretty sure this is what the economy looks like.
For some reason while reading that piece I could picture Shelia Broflovski from South Park as the author.
For another strange reason I am thinking of Eric Cartman’s classic song “Kyle’s Mom is a Stupid Bitch”
NO!!! NEVER!!! Slap me when I talk like that.
It's possibly even that the Fox Phenomenon is hitting FR. Maybe Jim-Rob has more bloggers enrolled than Move-On and Daily Kooks combined, and it's got them throwing hissy fits. Or...
...they've finally noticed that we're reader-supported (we don't need Soros' billions to keep afloat), and they are terrified by that level of belief in something... the thought horrifies them, so they lash out in fear and anguish.
Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket. Fear, and anguish. ;-/
My fault. When I see the phrase “last eight years”, I automatically assume the discussion is about the Bush 43 Presidency. I tend to view what happened to the Palins as outside that timeframe, even though it isn’t. My apologies.
Understandable. It seems that the left and our media have because a huge sucking vacuum of hate that gets worse every day.
They put her in the Peace T to see if they could get an attack like Palins kids and they did. Difference is, she was trying to be political wearing that shirt. This was a Premier Hussain setup from the beginning. We are now a target for telling the truth.
Musta missed the outrage over the Kooks or Huffandpuffington.
Pray for America
yep. Consider us part of Sarah's team now, too. This won't be the last accusation. They will attempt to use the same tactics with us they did with Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh. "Over the target..." and all, you know.
AOL Commie News greeted me with this crap today, but it wouldn’t let me post it. The web address was very long and wouldn’t compact.
More one sided twaddle. Yesterday, they greeted me with a smiling lesbian. My wife loves it, or they would be history.
LOL! Where's that bumper sticker that was on her about a month ago: "ANY DAY I DON'T PISS OFF A LIBERAL IS A TOTAL WASTE" ?
“HERE.” It’s “HERE,” not “her.” (hanging head and slumping away...)
