Charlie uses 'teabaggers' twice in under 1 minute....Rangel: "Teabaggers set the standards as to what you're going to fund and not fund, what taxes you're going to have and not have and so the best Republican is going to be which one is following the teabaggers and that's going to be a rough road to do"...A short clip of Rangel on Hardball

They lost their case against us when we didn’t riot, weren’t racists and kicked their butt in the election. We look cool headed, rational and reasonable compared to these commie hustlers left with nothing but name calling bluster.

What about which taxes you'll pay and which you can safely avoid, huh Charlie. Jeez why is this hack still not in jail.

Well get ready, Charlie, ‘cuz we are also gonna determine “who’s naughty and nice”. Your days of race pimping are done. Either we are going to quit generating the “wealth to distribute” or we are gonna quit “redistributing”. One or the other, a$$hole.

Using the word “teabagger” is as offensive to me as “nigger” is to Rangel. Why does the left get away with these things?

Rangel may be trying to demean the Tea Partiers of the 2000's, but his comments slap the face of the Tea Partiers of the 1770's too. Hey Rangel, we are the Sons of Liberty. "No taxation without representation".

We need to write TEA Party (Taxed Enough Already) every time so the left knows what it means and cannot corrupt it for their own evil uses. Maybe the left will continue to write Tea Party, but we need to be smarter and use the acronym.

After reading the story in NR commending Charlie’s Korean War heroism, I’m more accomodating in my opinion of him.

I do think old age is part of his problem.

Here’s the direct link to the video you claim to be the author of:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/40832573#40832573

Somehow I doubt you are the author of this content, as you claim.

What does that make you, besides a scummy plagiarist?

I just flipped past this and was disgusted. Matthews has a felon on his show that insults Americans who are sick of being taxed by aholes like him who write the rules but is above following them. MSNBC is disgusting.

We’ve reached a point in our world when the only people who use the N-word do so because they want to let everyone know how profoundly stupid they are. We can say the same for this “teabagger” word. Just put it in the bank and make a withdrawal the next time one of these abortion happy statists tell us what great christians they are.

The amazing thing is that, after a gazillion leftist goobers spout the term all over... Dems like Rangel still think it’s witty. Just another example of how Dems lead from the lowest common denominator.

Attribution is required for posting material that is not one’s own.

“It’s obvious” is not a good excuse for plagiarism.

“It’s obvious” just means “I got caught.”

There is no excuse for the rude, uncouth allegations made by various Freepers on a Conservative, Family Oriented Website.

If you, or anyone else, have a complaint about some post on Free Republic make your case in a positive, well documented, well reasoned and polite manner with standard business English and adequate foundational material.

You "miss many things" and are apparently proud of your deficiencies.

As a consequence of behaviors such as yours it can be difficult for me to recommend Free Republic as a site friends and associates should visit.

I saw that when it appeared and posted in several locations.

I have also read this:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1115843/posts

An amazing, cheerful, upbeat, well mannered thread, don't you think?

One that makes a person proud to associate with Free Republic.

Unlike so many threads in 2010.

Maybe next year will lead to more positive perspectives.

I have recommended FreeRepublic to friends and associates. In cases to numerous to count they have declined to participate, stating that they saw no merit in a site that seemed to be nothing more than a clearing house for blogs.

No one is begrudging the honest blogger who wants to post original material, in full, for discussion.

The pimp, however, trying to divert our traffic into "redirect hell" is a plague on our house.

What part of this do you not understand?


"Believe it or not, once upon a time vanities were frowned upon by our participants. FR’s original format was established to not only fight for liberty and against government abuse/corruption, etc, but to criticize the liberally biased mainstream media. Therefore our original format was to post from valid NEWS sources and government reports, etc, and to tear them down where deserved. Vanity posters were shunned (unless they were very good).

Then a few years ago the blogger craze started. At first, most of them were treated simply as vanities and were pulled or zotted on sight. Eventually some were accepted as valid material on FR. And soon the blogger wars commenced. To allow blogs or not to allow blogs was the question. Can’t go blanket either way. Like it or not, some blogs are better than most others.

So, long story short, we created a special forum for blog posts. This was in lieu of simply deleting all blog posts. The theory was that as long as they were posted in the bloggers forum, those who didn’t wish to read them could simply click on the “news” forum and they wouldn’t see them. But, of course, as some blogs are definitely better than most others and some are much better than your typical mainstream news sources, we soon allowed certain blogs to be posted regularly to the news section.

This all worked more or less to a certain degree without too much friction until the non-commenting, short-excerpting, long-complaining blog pimp was born.

I have no complaint if a good conservative blogger posts his own material to FR, not as an excerpt to drive hits and discussion back to his blog, but rather to impart useful information to OUR readers and to promote and join in on the discussion and conservative activism HERE on FR.

If a blogger can’t or refuses do that, and if he constantly complains or fights with our participants over it, then I’d just as soon he doesn’t post here. It’s not my job to make his content or his presentation or cooperation acceptable to our readers. That’s his job. And if he cannot do it or refuses to do it and continues posting brief excerpts only and obviously attempting to draw away our participants while loudly complaining about it, then I have no sympathy for his complaints and the more apt I am to ban his account and blog..."

That was the announcement of the blog forum. Due to vile pimping, the link I posted was a clarification of what is acceptable and what is not on Free Republic. You say you have seen it, but did you read and understand it?

Blog pimp apologists such as yourself are either too stupid to understand the difference between a blogger and a blog pimp, or they pretend not to understand that difference as they defend the thieving business platforms of their blog-pimp buddies.

So which are you?

Interesting you chose to excerpt the text of the post rather than post it in it's entirety.

Furthermore, I’m not big on “rules.” You won’t see me posting rules for bloggers. The rules for bloggers on FR are the same as the rules for everyone else. If you are a good conservative activist and are willing to work with US on OUR goals and causes and not against US, then you’re welcome to post to FR. But unless we say otherwise your blog material should be posted to our bloggers forum and it would be best if you do not excerpt your own material and if you would actually join in on the discussion here on FR. We’re not really that interested in driving OUR traffic to YOUR blog. But if our readers see that you post useful information then they might start reading your site and that’s fine by me.

Yes I did read it and I defy anyone to explain what it says (if you read the ENTIRE POST and not just an excerpt)

Mr. Robinson disliked blogs before he liked them and then he liked some blogs more than others but he is unwilling to post any clarification of any rules and seems content to let uncouth behavior dominate threads where the readers (usually numbering 6 or 7 comments) have NO complaint until the Freebeater Squad appears at which point the thread balloons into anywhere from 16 to upwards of hundreds comments mostly between two or three stalwart defenders of civilization and family values and a self selected posse of bored graffiti artists.

With the demise of the click counter Freepers cannot even objectively determine how many views these posts generate on Free Republic let alone "divert traffic" to other sites.

I venture to guess 25 to 50 would be large amount on a GOOD Day and most often much fewer than that.

I got sucked into this discussion because the one activity I quietly enjoyed for over a year FROM EXACTLY ONE BLOG somehow came to the attention of the Eye Of Mordor and all hell broke loose for absolutely NO REASON.

It may not be the world's greatest blog, but it certainly does not appear to be a malignant blog and I certainly did not deserve the attack I received because it interested me.

To sum up: you people troll around insignificant threads and stir up a tempest in a teapot to satisfy some inner deficiency of yours which accomplishes nothing but to give Free Republic a black eye and throw "the baby out with bathwater"

Sorry, these are not the behaviors I associate with a Family Oriented Conservative Website.

So I will give you this: I should probably not bother to spend any more time with this nonsense.

There are good people who contribute to this site.

I hope they do not find their reputations tarnished by actions of a few ignorant childish trolls who might even be classified as disruptor infiltrators.

Like yourself I have been on Free Republic since 2000 and have posted and participated in many, many discussions and threads.

I stopped posting to avoid duplicates, I stopped discussions because of the remarkable way just a few jack-a-lopes can wilt a perfectly good thread.

Bad money drives out good.

It is true of the economy and it is true of Free Republic.

When Atlas Shrugs and the rich leave high tax states their governments go bankrupt.

With the proliferation of high quality - low stress websites the same rule applies.

Enjoy your day in the sun.
