Skip to comments.Will our enemies use the "similarity" of the title "the Gurdians of the..." to bash us?

The striking similarities in the title of the group to the name of our wonderful FR here.
Will the militant militias of the daily-kos and others use it against us?
Do you feel that coming?
I’m a little surprised they haven’t already.
Actually, I don’t think so. I think those folks are already so aware of the true nature of FR, and its identity, that they would very soon realize that we weren’t these guys, whoever they are.
But they might believe that there are some Freepers here who are also fans of Sam Kennedy.
How crass.... The elegant form is "Does the Pontiff coprolate in sylvan glades?"
NO, it would have already occured, and it obviously hasn’t.
The left has gotten burned too many times going after FR.
Seems that we did have one guy who made a threat toward Obama who had posted here once or twice and the left got all wee weed up until they found that he had an extensive posting history at KOS or the DU.
Maybe they did, I am not a “visitor’ on their sites.
Thanks, glad to hear that.
Stop sweating the crap! They want to discourage us, don’t let them do it!
Because then they would HAVE to discuss Free Republic and give it mainstream respectability on their libby television shows -- and they do NOT want to do that.
I am not shaking in my shoes over it.
In that vain I guess Constitutional REPUBLIC is suspect also!
They will try. It's what 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus/street revolutionary rabble and their ideological issue do.
Markos Moulitsas Zuniga is an ardent admirer of Saul Alinsky. His book Taking On the System said so and made that clear.
His netroot followers.. well that's another story.. uh.. well they're kind of dumb. See Matt Bai's book, The Argument Billionaires, Bloggers, and the Battle to Remake Democratic Politics
An interesting book I read, though the author is sympathetic to the ultra left netroots. "One of the hallmarks of netroots culture was a complete disconnect from history meaning, basically, anything that had happened before 1998. The political consciousness of most of the bloggers seemed to begin sometime around impeachment, when they had first tuned in. Whatever had gone on before then, the fight between Clinton and the liberal establishment, the very real debates inside the party over trade and taxes and defense all of these things felt as ancient to the bloggers as the underlying causes of the Peloponnesian War, and about as useful. It wasn't just that the bloggers didn't know much about the political world before impeachment, it was that they didn't want to know, either. So burning was their contempt for "Washington insiders" and the "mainstream media" that they were moved to dismiss not just the individuals who fell into these categories, but all the knowledge such people had accumulated. In a sense, the way the netroots saw it, the more you knew about Democratic politics before 1998, the less relevant you actually were."
Of COURSE that is part of the strategy. Soviet counter measures did this to internal dissent in the 1920s, etc. It is a standard communist tactic. It is not co-incidence. I am telling you folks, it is starting. And that is precisely why I recommended establishing Committees of Correspondence to keep Freepers in touch with each other in case FR were to ever be seized by Fascist Authority; it could be reborn many times over as we take our clue from how freedom moment people work and worked in Nicaragua, Cuba, Red China, Myanmar, North Korea, former East Germany, communist Poland, etc. etc. etc.
Excuse me, but don't you mean "Does the Pontiff eat big bananas?" Yes?
I wonder if it is a plant story and the wackos of the DBM will try and merg the two. (ala the same way they used a sexual vulgarity to describe Tea Party attendees)
Latest news reports indicate that it is the work of a real Conservative radio personality, Dr Sam Kennedy.
Maybe he picked “Guardians of the Free Republics” because he was hitching his wagon to the bright star that is FR. He knows that he will get automatic recognition from true patriots.
