Skip to comments.The Strange Mentality of DU Trolls

You know 'em, you love 'em. Just about all of us have clashed with 'em at times. What's more, it's fun to bust and get rid of them, and that helps make FR even more exciting.
But why do they do it? Why do liberals--and they're usually far-left ones--come here and put on phony screen names so they can "infiltrate" this right-wing forum? They seem to have a tendency to make outrageous statements that get them busted the same day they join. What are they trying to accomplish?
Just yesterday, after one of them made an obvious statement, I caught onto him. He started making insane left-wing rants, before I reported him, and he vanished. It was fun to imagine the little wuss screaming in pain as he was busted and yanked. After he was gone, and all his comments replaced by Comment Removed messages, I made a statement on the stupidity of these people, blowing their own cover right after they join. What kind of espionage is that?
But then, ANOTHER one came in, and had this to say before he, too, was yanked:
Yeah, those trolls are seriously brain dead. They are so caught up in that so-called freedom of speech thing that they don't know how to watch what they say when talking to us Republicans that are able to remove their thoughts when we disagree with them. Gosh, they are so silly!
Fortunately, this troll is also no longer with us, at least not under the same screen name. But upon reading his statement here, a realization comes. THATS IT! This comment helps get to the heart of the DU trolls mindset, and exactly what it is theyre doingor trying to do. Hopefully, some of them here will read this, and realize how futile their efforts are.
Basically, DU trolls like the one who made the above statement are classic examples of people suffering what I call LNM, or Liberal Narcissistic Martyrdom. This is a common mental ailment of left-wingers. In essence, it involves a self-image of being a heroic rebel against the system who dares to stand up for what they believe in. In an egotistical way, they envision themselves as underdogs who are in a perpetual state of standing up to fight the corporate system. They are ALWAYS standing up against this system, or some proverbial system.
Michael Moore, or at least the public image he makes of himself, is a classic example of this. Actually, one of the best examples I can think of is famed hippy doctor Patch Adams. His movie about himself, starring Robin Williams, is a complete show of just what an egotistical blowhard a liberal can be when he envisions himself standing up to fight the system at all times, under all circumstances. I assume that Patch Adams is a favorite movie among sufferers of LNM, because it is exactly how they fantasize their own lives being.
Look at the statement the DU troll made. Yeah, those trolls are seriously brain dead. They are so caught up in that so-called freedom of speech thing Here, he/she/it is showing the biggest symptom of LNM the conviction that ones freedom of speech is being taken away, when it is not. Liberals are caught up in their first amendment rightstheyre not caught up in any other constitutional rights, like the right to bear arms, but they love that first one. And many of them, especially those with LNM, are convinced that that sacred right is going to be taken away from them when America descends into a dictatorship. They think Bush is Hitler, and those of us on FR are Nazis. Therefore, they think a totalitarian government is going to steal their first amendment rights. Never mind that as left-wingers, they are campaigning for more power to the government, anyway.
And that, my friends, is why these people come here under various guises. They WANT their freedom of speech taken. It gives them a Martyr Ego Boost. They crave it. So they come here, put in a phony screen name, and start spouting left-wing doctrines. As this clown sarcastically put it: they don't know how to watch what they say when talking to us Republicans that are able to remove their thoughts when we disagree with them. See what I mean? They seek PROOF that theyre losing their free speech, so when they get yanked from this site, it makes them feel like righteous martyrs. They get the Martyr Rush. Its almost like drug addiction.
Theyve lived comfortably in America their whole lives, considering their dissent to show how righteous they are, and any criticism of that dissent is seen as freedom being lost.
The problem is that FreeRepublic.com is not a debate forum, at least not for right vs. left. There are other web forums for that. FR is a right-wing/grassroots conservatism forum. If we let one liberal stay here and debate us, then we have to let them all. Then, this is no longer a right-wing forum. So their thesis that Republicans and Conservatives are eliminating people who disagree with them is pretty much a dead point.
Of course, these wienies dont know the meaning of losing free speech. Theyve never lived under a communist regime before. They should go over to North Korea and live under Kim Jong Ils iron grip awhile. When their hands are cut off for speaking out against the government, or their tongues gouged out, or theyre skinned alive
then theyll know what it REALLY means to lose freedom. Ill bet the typical sufferer of LNM couldnt stand five minutes of what Saddam Husseins victims had to endure. Theyd come running back to the American Bush dictatorship, crying like babies, for sure.
Hmm.... "mentality" and "DU" are really self-contratictory terms.
"Why expend so much mental energy contemplating why DUmpers do anything."
Know your enemy. Besides, it's kind of fun.
I go over to Fark.com when I want to amuse myself with a little liberal baiting. Logic, evidence, as well as correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling seems to drive them particularly wild.
Like that London terrorist, DUers want to scream "I got rights" while respecting no one else's rights.
Also where's the (VANITY) in the title?
Same mentality of suicide bombers.
[...a self-image of being a heroic rebel against the system who dares to stand up for what they believe in.]
That just about sums it up.
Arthur: What're you going to do, bleed on me?
Black Knight: I'm INVINCIBLE!!!
Arthur: You're a looney.
The DUers ARE childish nitwits.
I can't stand wasting my time with them. They don't comprehend anything that they read and it isn't worth it.
Oh, just proving that the truly brilliant like themselves can easily manipulate anencephalic dolts like us. ;^)
Trolls are just slightly less popular than people who post long-winded vanities in "breaking news"
You know, instead of posting an essay, you could have said almost the exact same thing just by saying "liberals are childish nitwits."
But that wouldn't have been as much FUN as dissecting the complications of a nitwit brain, then posting a long essay on it.
And sorry about the vanity. I'm still learning.
"As a long time Republican...."
Just an inquiry-have any trolls posted so much to FR that they themselves moved to the light? Just wondering.
