The Taliban are anything but conservatives.
To equate the two in any way is inexcusable.
Conservatives want to live according to the American Constitution NOT the koran. The two are not too closely related and our Forefathers meant for them not to be.
America has never been as you described and never will be. The “The American Ayatolla” is a figment of Heinlein’s fertile imagination.
Take something away from this forum, please (beside your toys.) Joking aside this time. Take an awareness of how the Left controls the language, and through that, controls the debate, and controls your approach to issues, your focus, your very thoughts and opinions. Because from reading your opus I conclude that it is something that you are missing, and, heck, you’re not the only one among us. Abortion is not “choice”, and pederasty is not “gay”, start from that.
You are right, of course. When I’ve seen these things, I suppose I assume the Mods see them too. But, that is just an excuse, and you’re point is taken. I don’t think we should lose people over the dumb posts, and I will push that button in the future.
Whatever NOOB. Adios and IBTZ.
As (almost) always, you nailed it again. Huzzah!
And to you as well. And remember to please do not turn off your computer. :-)
Cooks know the difference.
“Taliban” means religious in the same way all religious people are religious, only a little more./s
Seriously, though, I tire easily of political religiosity, especially among our side with some born agains’ imperialist foreign policy. But the idea that there could be an American Taliban. Have you seen tv, for instance, ever turned on the radio or looked out a window, even? Not that there couldn’t be a reaction. But I find it slightly less likely than constitutional government falling to a martian invasion.
That term I threw out, reaction, may be a bit misleading. For should there be a theocratic revolution it’ll almost certainly be leftist, just like the Ayatollian revolution. The other kind is highly unlikely. If that’s confusing, it’s because leftists control our historical imagination to a startling degree, and people have forgotten the difference. See the great little book “The Lost Literature of Socialism.”
I hope not, I’m for adhering to the Constitution, as best as we are able to so that’s why I lean libertarian on many things. Put it this way, I don’t want to be ruled by either an Obama nor a Jerry Falwell.
I don’t recall Melas supporting either abortion or pederasty.
“Now its pretty much an echo chamber of religious fanatics and angry reactionists. I dont post much either anymore.”
Hmm, Liberals use those words to describe a Christian and a believer in the constitution and our God given rights. Maybe it’s a good thing you “don’t post much either anymore.”
Say Melas, could you rewrite your post — this time as a conservative, if you can?
I have enjoyed your posts over the years. I understand and respect you and your opus. Best of luck.
I expect you will always be welcome to return to FR.
yes, you could... i would agree with you! :)
Moderates, compromisers, bi-partisans are no Conservatives. The US is financially broke due to liberal economic policies aka Socialism. The US is morally broke due to liberal social policies aka Fascism. Protected class rhetoric and class warfare are used to buy votes for more Socialism. History says that Socialism always fails, always. So why do you feel the need to compromise with Socialists who are doomed to assured failure. The Democratic party is a fascist criminal enterprise designed to take your life, liberty, and persuit of happiness. The party of DEATH. There is a wrong side of history but FR is on the right side.
Hate? Really? Go spend some time at DU. None of us are happy with the systematic destruction of the constitution or the American way of life and what you call "hate" is frustration and anger at that. There is a facebook page with over 3000 "followers" cheering for the assassination of Sarah Palin. You see anything like that here? What did Sarah Palin ever do to deserve that? Did she pass any legislation to destroy your rights? This is war Hoss. Sorry to see you bail out on the side of truth and freedom.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace! Peace! but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! ― Patrick Henry
Wrotsa wruck in yer search for knowledge that matches your beliefs. I'm sure some one somewhere will sucker you in with sweet words that you so desperately want to be truth.
What a crock. And racism? Let me guess, you define it as disagreeing with the marxist in the White House. Since he's half black wouldn't that make me a half-racist? Seriously, you sound like a kindergarten kid that got picked last for a team.
OK. Why is it that graciousness in the face of agreement escapes you? Pointing out my grammatical error make you a bigger peson? My only regret now is having thought of you as a serious human being. I will not make that mistake again.
You forgot War on Women.../sarc
Typical liberal reaction to Conservatives- racist, homophobe anti-women.
The beginnings of wisdom.
And in 1775 you would have walked out of the pub and moved to Canada. The greivances listed in the Declaration of Independence are minor compared to our tyrants today.
But I'm sure you agree I shouldn't be able to buy a 100 watt incandescent light bulb.
I’m relatively new here. I don’t post that often, but I constantly read different threads throughout the day.
All three of your assertions are false.
First, while I’ve seen the term Amish used to refer to inner-city thugs, I was never really alarmed by its use. At the end of the day, white males are the one demographic now targeted by all other demographics. This latest election is just further proof of that. Every single minority demographic (blacks, Hispanics, Asians, homosexuals, Muslims, single women, etc) all joined together to vote for a man who wants to undermine the Constitution. Most of these groups have conflicting belief systems (ie Muslims and homosexuals), yet they vote together in their desire to hamper white males.
As for your second point, you clearly aren’t conservative. History won’t be on our side? Why do people like you act like homosexuality is some new phenomenon? Homosexuality has existed since the beginning of time. It was wrong back then, and it’s wrong now. Even if you don’t believe in God, homosexuality is against the laws of nature. Two males will never produce a child. And please don’t point to homosexuality in nature as a rebuttal. Number one, you will be using animals, without morals or a conscience, to justify your position. Number two, if two animals do engage in pure homosexuality, they will never spread their seed, their lineage will come to an end, and by default, they will be considered Darwinian failures. You honestly can’t call yourself a conservative, while calling for an acceptance of homosexuality. They are pushing their agenda on 5 year olds now, but to you, a pathetic excuse of a conservative, that’s acceptable.
To your last point, I haven’t seen anyone advocate violence on this site. However, when discussing the potential of gun confiscation, posters have brought up their intention to resist.
No one on this site wants violence. We all have children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc. We hold strong to our conservative beliefs because we want our loved ones to grow up in the same country of our fore fathers. We believe that our country is the greatest in the world, and we’re proud of our heritage and our ancestors. We believe in the Constitution, we believe in unalienable rights, and we believe in a God who bequeathed these rights unto us. There are progressives who wish to undermine these rights.... If the day ever comes, when our backs are pushed against the wall to the breaking point.... Do you expect us to cower in the corner with you? Or do you expect us to stand up for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?
Wonderful warm day! Would have be thrilled had we had sunshine. I’m dying to sit outside in the HOT sun! Hope you’re well and doing good?
LOL. I like it a lot, too!
Exactly. Poor Melas has surrendered and is waving the white flag.
There’s also the extra layer that conservatives don’t blame black violence on black genes or inherent blackness. Not any ones I’ve ever talked to, anyway. We blame government, mostly—the War on Drugs or the Welfare State and affirmative racial politics, depending on how libertarian you are—and the general decline of civilization.
In just the past four years, they’ve taken control of our health care, they’re now making a play for our guns, and soon will be pushing through an amnesty, adding 25+ million Dem voters to the rolls. And you worry about Jerry Falwell?
Just where is some right-wing theocrat going to find a large enough electoral base to sweep him into power? Not among any of the people who just voted for Obama. And certainly not among we “right-wingers” who cherish self-governance above all else. That doesn’t leave much of a coalition for your Taliban dictator.
Right here, right now, in reality we have a communist takeover of our government and other major institutions of our society and you're worried about what might happen in some imagined future? For which not one single substantive instance exists on which to base a theory of this future possibility? I can hardly even think of any rhetoric from the remotest fringes of Christianity that could be infinitely stretched to begin to even sketch that notion. Are you worried about Martians invading too?
>>I wouldn’t be surprised at all if I read in the morning paper that a FReeper murdered a federal bureaucrat or a federal judge.<<
After seeing what those two Amish guys could do with one rifle, (in 2003) I’m sure a white team could do much better. Of course, these days there’s so many more Communists in America. They almost jump out of the bushes everywhere you look. There is some honest to God true communist targets out there that truly need killing. I would hope they are hung up for some righteous public display. Kind of like the guys in Iraq ... remember them?
I do hope you aren’t limiting the targets to only the feds because I personally think there’s plenty of state employees that carry the red and black communist colors everyday too. People have made a career out of crippling America and I won’t weep if they have to eventually pay the price of being a traitor.
You wish us well, except you're leaving due to our racism, our rejection of homosexuality, and our hate.
1. Racism: “Racism” is a liberal word used to describe anyone who thinks Hussein is a Muslim communist destroying this country and just because he is orange, he is still a Muslim communist destroying this country.
2. Homosexuality: Against the word of God, murders homosexuals, transvestites, cross dressers, transgenders, sex changers by surgery, also murders those children, women, men who get AIDS tainted blood. Because you are a homosexual promoter, you don't belong on this forum, period.
3. Haters: “Hater” is a liberal word used to describe anyone who doesn't accept the liberal agenda of homosexuality, doesn't praise Muslim communist Hussein who is orange, and DOES believes in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
“First reflex would be ‘opi’, “
That is exactly what I thought. Did you steal some of my brain when I wasn’t looking?
B.)Homosexuality, though increasingly acceptable in western society, is still 100% contrary to what nature intended. Babies don't get born that way and nature intended for us to reproduce. Think about it. It isn't any more right than ripping a baby out of a mother's womb even if both acts are acceptable.
C.)Hatred? You'll find it in abundance over on the left too. That's the new reality, another truth you can't handle apparently.
You have been weighed and measured and found wanting.
Please see my post at 186, I’m off to the Land of Nod.
“opi” - I meant that with a big :o) , of course.
:o) :o) :o)
Think someone that might have served in the Spanish American war. As an aged headmaster at a private school in a time when beating children to get them to learn was perfectly acceptable (personally, for some kids... I think it still is).
We learned mostly by fast, correct guesses, after glossing the text. Nothing like a little bit of physical feedback to stimulate the mind.
That makes sense.
...I focus on the real issues,...
Except when you're imagining an American Taliban or a Martian invasion!?! LOL
You said nothing that explains your bizarre comments.
FlyingEagle: “Decadence carries a high price.”
It sure does, and you’re absolutely right about history. Since when in the history of man has homosexuality, in general, been considered not just normal but praiseworthy? Never!
Homosexuality is just about as sexually depraved as one can get. It’s rebellion against the natural order of things. It’s not my business to judge sinners, but I’m not going to deny the truth so they can feel good about their perversion.
I'm pretty much a contrarian here, and my views are that we're all going to have to stop making every decision about abortion, about homosexuality, and illegals....
there is not much you can do about any of that....except Jesus did say that you would know Christians by their love....HE didn't say people would know Christians by their hate...love would go farther than all of us stomping our feet at the same moment and shaking our fingers...
and illegals...well get used to it folks...latinos have always been here, many are good citizens and most people alive today in America have direct descendents who were immigrants...
I don't think people here are racist or homophobes...freepers are the type of people you want to come along when its a dark night on a country road and your car is stuck...good, salt of the earth people...
and you would probably be surprised at how diverse some people here are or have close relationships with people of other races/religons...
but do as you want...you'll miss it here..
NeoCaveman: “Yes, some of the commentators are, as such, that I would not recommend this site to minority friends.”
That has to be challenged. First off, if there are comments here that are untrue or racist, then those comments need to be challenged, not ignored. Secondly, if the comments are factual, your minority friends would be better served by hearing the truth. The truth is not always comfortable, but would you prefer for your friends to believe in lies?
As far as racism, I have only encountered a very few comments that go too far. For example, you have Islamic extremists (who happen to be Islamic fundamentalists, i.e. true believers, btw) committing violent crimes all over the world, but somehow we’re racist for pointing it out?!? That’s where the Amish thing came from. The press makes it a point to NOT mention it whenever Muslims commit violent crimes, so we jokingly say it must have been done by the “Amish” who are noted for being peaceful.
Secondly, is it wrong to point out facts about minorities, like they vote for Democrats almost exclusively? Yet, what have the Democrats really done for minorities other than make them generally dependent on big government? There are certain factors were minorities are disproportionately represented compared to their percentage of the population. Is it wrong to point out their illegitimacy rate is ridiculously high, that they are less likely to be well educated, that they use government services at a higher rate, and that they commit more violent crimes than their numbers would otherwise indicate?
Perhaps your minority friends should start thinking about what is going on in the country and where we’re heading. I, for one, would love it if we had more minorities on FreeRepublic. I’m open to the possibility that I might have my facts wrong, but I’ll never find out if people like your friends aren’t willing to come here and explain their point of view.
Your allegiance to the truth doesn’t allow you to see that Obama is divisive and anti-American?
The folks who were in Sodom and Gomorrah might have a different view of that.
you are an idiot. people have a right to be angry with what is going on with this communist pos dictator Obama
What a load of crap!!
It is perfectly NORMAL to be leery of people who exhibit deviant sexual behavior that is destructive to themselves as well as a danger to those around them.
And normal,God-fearing ,or just rational people don’t approve of killing babies.
I,for one, am perfectly comfortable with the idea that all those promoting homsexual behavior and abortion SHOULD feel uncomfortable here on FR.
And likewise for those promoting more gun(people) control, more big-government socialism,more taxes,more rules to “stop global warming...i mean climate change” and all the rest of the so-called liberal agenda.
Come back when you wise up.
Exactly, I don’t care for “thumpers”, but they are not the “boogie man” the Left makes them out to be. They try to imply that if we don’t vote all Democrat, the Christian “Taliban” will take over the country. What a crock!
