Nailhead, meet Mister Hammer.
I agree. Probably 50% of the critics on FR now are leftist trolls. The below article link from Andrew Breitbart exposes what is going on with the left and their infiltration of Right Wing sites. As observed on FR in the last several months, no matter which conservative leader is put forward in a article, a host of long knives come out. But, these critics claim to be staunch conservatives and patriots. I suspect most are not, most of the others may be well meaning, but are executing a losing strategy for the battle of our time.
Wow, the attacks here on Newt Gingrich clearly validate Breitbart’s point. What the halfwit liberals don't realize is that their comments will only galvanize opinion against them. We are not concerned with personalities but with what is true and right. They never address the issues. Rather, they attempt to support their position by appealing to emotion, and by seduction to either hate or worship someone. Their “arguments” seem to fall within one of two categories: either they worship personalities they agree with, or hate personalities they disagree with. They are either deceived or in love with death or both. We are in love with Truth. Probably there are also some conservatives here who have been fooled by this way of “thinking.”
Please don’t zot me for being a noob (I’ve lurked here for over 5 years). It seems the difficulty in “cleaning the site” of left wing trolls is the disagreement among Freepers regarding the current conservative “leadership”. In this thread alone, support for Newt seems to be split 50/50. So how can trolls identified?
If you support Newt, half of the posters will agree citing the importance of unity to overcome the leftist juggernaut.
If you oppose Newt, the other half will accuse you of supporting a RINO thereby weakening the movement.
I don’t have the answer but it appears the left-wing trolls can achieve their goal by simply creating chaos.
Thank you for your post.
I had not thought of the site being infiltrated by Obamalites. I saw red when I saw the complete trashing of any one on our side and the do nothing smart mouth attitude presented.
But, I agree - think they are mere liberal leftists trying to ruin a conservative site. We need a term for them.
Oh, and also unsaid is Newt's greatest achievement. Newt brought down a 40 year rat Congress.
According to the clowns here, this 90% conservative is a rino.
The rats did to Newt as they did to Bork, Thomas, Armey, GWB, Libby, Palin and others.
“Probably 50% of the critics on FR now are leftist trolls. The below article link from Andrew Breitbart exposes what is going on with the left and their infiltration of Right Wing sites...”
This is interesting; I wouldn’t think it would be nearly as high as 50%, but then again, I could be a left-wing troll, trying to deceive by my non-chalant lack of alarm toward the possibility of other left-wing trolls. Seriously, I don’t doubt that there is some of this going on, and I find it annoying, because at FR, I think open left-wing dissent is tolerated. So if you’re a liberal and don’t agree with something here, just come out and say it straight up, I’ll respect your opinion much more that way. I’ve been to daily KOS, and I recall that they rate you on your comments to determine if you’re worthy to be able to continue posting. The far left are always proving just how much they believe in free speech aren’t they?
