Most extreme posts are probably trolls anyway.

Most extreme posts are probably trolls anyway.

Not from what I've seen. The extreme posts have been from frustrated long-timers when they get fed up hearing opinions other than their own.

For example, I tried to tell someone that you can't tell if someone is an illegal alien just by looking at them, and a crowd of freepers descended on me immediately that they had been around them enough to tell which people were illegals when they saw them....as if there's some kind of makring you get when you become a naturalized citizen. Nuts!

The AM's recognized, like I was trying to explain, that that kind of idiocy makes us all look bad. And yet, the particular posters still to this day don't get it and think I accused them of racism.

They throw what can only be called the "don't call me a racist" card, which is as illogical and irrational as any other JEsse Jackson race card.

If the hate is any indication of the Kos bunch. Count on an infiltrator. I wonder if OReally got a heads up. HUMMMMMM enquiring minds would like to know.

“Most extreme posts are probably trolls anyway.”

Which is exactly what you will hear the other side say. I have no doubt that is true in some cases. But we just have to concede that we have our own share of idiots as well.

RE: Most extreme posts are probably trolls anyway.

The 'You are a troll!' slam is too easy for too many of the "nut jobs" we have here on FR....

Yes, 'nut jobs' is correct as we do have our share...

Any website not charging a high dollar subscription charge will have those...

I've been called a Nazi (see post 14) for calling for common sense to be observed in keeping guns from the mentally ill and convicted felons...

So I do have an idea of what goes on...

FR gathers a fair amount of different folk...

And some of them... are way more than a full bubble off plumb!

However, the better we take care of FR, the less fewer chances we'll give people to pull stunts like O'Reilly did last night.

Not everyone posts or reads every thread on this site, so for BO and his staff to cherry pick so few out of so many is ludicrous. Can I use the word ludicrous and BO in the same sentence? BO has a running battle with Ludicrous(sp), the group.

Yes, I think so...wouldn’t surprise me if DU came on just to cause trouble!

I remember at an NRA rally in NJ back in the early 90’s there was some nutcase dressed up as Uncle Same handing out bumper stickers with a picture of a bullet and Florio’s name next to it.

I asked someone who the heck the nutcase was. Someone told me that he was a well known anti-gunner and he came to these rallies to make 2nd Amendment supporters look bad.

1. The overwhelming majority of comments on FR are not offensive.

2. To be fair, BOR, go to DU and check some of their posts. Remember the high-five celebrations they were throwing when President Reagan passed away? 3. This country has not seen the kind of political hatred that we have suffered since 2000 since the Civil War. The Left in this country, abetted by their allies in the MSM, are the hate mongers. They are peddling hate for one reason: to win political power. If we have "hate" it is reactionary and aimed at their hatred.

To use their term, this is a “non-event.”

The more outrageous a comment, the more likely the person has just signed up on FR. I have seen some nasty noob posts in the last 2 weeks and have been pointing this out in the forum or hitting the abuse button.

They’re almost certainly being planted by Kossacks in their anti-Fox campaign. The left has long and distinguished history of Internet sock-puppetry.
