Back from the big diss?
You show more class than can be told in text.
Welcome back. You are my new idol. Keep those videos coming.
Cool videos! I must have missed the dust up...but glad you are back!! Welcome to Free Republic!
Sorry you had some problems on FR, but you are welcome here by most of us. You are a rare kind of man.
How about Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell?
Keep those vids comin’ baby. There may be a job for you as Press Sec if you keep it up!
You are funny! You can not start a thread like this the first time here.
You might be able to do it when it wasnt so busy. Right now John Rob has asked to cut back on Vanity posts. That would mean only old timers can start any kind of Vanity posts and a very limited number, even then they better have some substance to your post.
Here you got substance showing us your videos! they are great!
In other words you broke the rules on this post as well. I sure hope you come back and follow the rules next time :)
Hopefully for having such a great videos, they will bend the rules a bit.
Great video! Thanks for sharing.
Welcome back! Love your videos, your one of the good guys!
Woo Hoo! Welcome back.
I’ve been enjoying your videos.
Welcome back indeed...you are awesome.
Hmm. for me it says “We’re sorry, this video is no longer available.”
Youre great man
Love your messages for all americans
Welcome back where you belong
I know your post wasn’t meant for me, but I will agree that I am a great man.
I do have a message for all Americans though, it’s right here.
Welcome. Excellent vids.
Wow, just great.
I was thrilled to see your videos! I sent them to my friends and to my myspace buddies. My teenage girls were fired up after watching - they think you’re incredible and that you make politics exciting.
When you decide to run for office, contact me. I will support you with time and money!
Love the video (BTW is that Lamont on your shirt?) and I sent a link to the McCain campaign.
And... welcome to Free Republic! Keep up the great work.
Why are people saying welcome back? Were you here before? Someone posted this video the other day on FR. It’s good, and now I’m watching your A Team bit— I would like to see some shorter stuff for people like me with a short attention span.
ok, my kids and I have been watching your youtube videos, and I think my daughter has a bit of a crush...can’t blame her, you are pretty darn cute! I think my daughter is probably sending a link to your youtube site to everyone she knows. But what is even better is what you have to say. It is so logical, of course that might make what you have to say go over some peoples heads. Sorry to hear there were “problems” your first go around on FreeRepublic, I really can’t imagine why...glad to see you giving it another try.
Thanks for the video. I appreciate your effort to get the truth out.
Dude you should be on radio, you have a great voice and a terrific delivery.
Dude! Glad to see you here! :)
YES! Welcome back!
That video is incredible. Love hearing from young Blacks who escaped the plantation.
Pray for W, McCuda and Our Troops
Thanks for the dose of reality!
I’m glad you gave FR another chance. The whole dang conservative movement needs you. Thanks for everything you do.
“Im glad you gave FR another chance. The whole dang conservative movement needs you. Thanks for everything you do.”
Party Unity, Let’s Roll!
Anytime you need some After Effects compositing, just let me know.
Anyway, I read the post that got you banned. I agree with you about a creator. I didn't think that was a reason for you to get banned. I'm glad you are back, and welcome to FR!
You asked — “Do you know if this is true?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uG4uppI_ttc
Was this great American really banned from FreeRepublic?”
Yes, it is true — and then he was re-instated after many people complained about the banning. Jim Robinson came online and said he was reinstated. Apparently some Moderator who didn’t like the “creation/evolution” angle (and there are a lot of rabid “creation-haters” out there in FReeper-land) banned this new poster. There also happens to be a large segment of atheist FReepers out there who like to get God-loving FReepers banned (fortunately Jim Robinson isn’t one of them...).
You said (to the formerly banned poster) — “I’m wondering, however, if you would like to take this opportunity retract some of the statements you made about FR on You Tube with your rather broad brush.”
There’s no need for him to retract those comments, because they sounded pretty accurate and true — especially having to do with those who ended up banning him in the first place (and thus making all the other FReepers look like kooks for being part of that fiasco — by “association” unfortunately...).
His comments were right on (the ones you posted directly in another place). Those comments that the formerly-banned poster made on YouTube were fairly accurate for what others would say and how they would use information like this (i.e., that someone was banned for nothing...) as exemplary of how they like to “mischaracterize” Republicans and those at Free Republic.
And, I would agree — that’s how the other side would construe this sort of thing. So, what he said was accurate.
You asked — “Why are people saying welcome back? Were you here before?”
This person you’re asking about was banned on his first post, in just a few minutes from posting it — when — he was asked by other FReepers to join Free Republic and be part of this community.
So, when he posted — he got banned by some nutty Moderator (who remains unidentified and probably properly chastised [by now] and embarrassed as hell). And so, the “banned poster” (after being invited to join), goes back to YouTube and puts out another one of his videos pointing out the kind of “ammunition” that this sort of “action” (of banning) gives to the other side, making FReepers look so idiotic.
Jim Robinson intervened and re-instated the banned poster to Free Republic. And so, that’s why everyone is welcoming him back...
Good points in the vid...not sure about the whole Sesame Street thing, though...but then again I didn’t pay too much attention to that as a youngin.
Absolutely brilliant work, Zo! You have done the mighty thing: you have pulled yourself up by your own and are speaking truth to power.
God bless you, my man.
Do you relay think that a misunderstanding of that sort justifys this?
Its people like you FReepers that substantiate peoples notions when the say Ah, those liberals and conservatives, theyre just alike. Its you people that are the biggest detriment to the conservative movement. Unapproachable, judgmental snobs. Its people like you who make the Republican party look exclusive.
You see the non whites, the females and the undecideds are reluctant to elect the Republican party because they think the Republican party is for rich, privileged, stuffy white male, like your self.
So in response to this he basically accuses us of being a bunch of bigoted, racist, sexist snobs. And based on what? I've read the thread. There is nothing that would lead a reasonable person in control of their emotions to say these things.
I also understand that he was angry. He had every right to be. And people say things that are unreasonable when they are angry. But he went beyond...way beyond...a reasonable angry retort at FR for a banning that was an over reaction to a post that did fall outside the guidelines for what is appropriate here.
Common civility would have him retract those ignorant statements specifically, and apologize for using rote liberal talking points to falsely vilify us.
That's all I'm asking for. Common civility. I haven't seen it yet.
Holy cow! Sesame Street is seriously liberal. It’s been blacklisted on my TV for years. It’s a PBS show. Thats all one needs to say.
Welcome back Zo.
Where can one view your video ‘Gay Marriage, Black Strife and God Dont Mix’?
Welcome back to Free Republic
My husband and I have enjoyed your videos.
I guess I missed the earlier stuff and whatever got you sent to your room. But hey! I’m glad you’re making these videos and glad you came back. You need wider play. You have a gift.
Your optimism is much welcomed and an enabler here.
Hey Zo... Welcome to FR....
Another Conservative Christian...
Check out my Freeper pages for some quotes from JimRob on his religious positions... you may be happily surprised....
Love your videos! Glad to have you with us!
