Re: The recent hypocritical liberal media criticism of Free Republic
Thread ^ | July 11, 2009 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 07/11/2009 1:21:22 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Not only can’t they get the name right, they don’t have their facts straight. And they have no idea about Free Republic and the FReepers!

The FReepers are the absolute best posters on the Internet, bar none!

And the FReepers have made Free Republic the number one conservative site on the Internet and in the world for 13 years running!

Thirteen years! Three hundred thousand members! Thirty million posts!!

And all of this on a shoestring budget! No star glittered IPOs or stock offerings! No commercial sponsors or advertising contracts of any kind! No sugar daddies! No BIG Bucks donors! No advertising of any kind!

We operate on a shoestring budget with funding provided solely by our readers and participants. All those $10, $20, $50 dollar donations made by our FReepers and Lurkers are all we need to maintain and keep Free Republic on the air and kicking liberal butt! We strive to meet our costs but make no attempt to profit otherwise.

FReepers are the GReatest!!

I’ll put you guys up post for post, dollar per dollar, man to man, brain cell to brain cell against any other political forum on the Internet and you will shine through magnificently! No other political forum, no other group of citizen patriots can hold a candle to the FReepers!!

Our members have exposed more fraud, uncovered more hoaxes, shined the light on more corruption, impeached more horn dog presidents than any other political Internet forum in the world!

And that’s a fact, Jack!

DailyKOs, MoveOn, DU, HuffingtonPost, et al, simply pump smoke, hump rumps and wish they could be as effective as FR!

FReepers Rock!!

Oh, yeah. The liberals can dish it out but they sure can't take it. Well, you know what my old crop dusting brother-in-law used to say before he cracked up:

FReep 'em if they can't take a joke!!

The LibMarxists wouldn't be pitching such a fit if they didn't view us as a threat.

Screw them and their blatant double standards.

Let's see here. It's the Vancouver Sun, not even an American newspaper. They can't even get Jim Robinson's name right, calling him "Jim Thompson." And any remark about the Obama family that doesn't make them sound like God's gift to America is described as "racially charged."

If this is the best that the left-wing propagandists in the news media can do, they do a lot more damage to their own cause than they do to Free Republic.

Freeping has made me what I am today--which on most days, is a good thing--LOL!

Another thing about FR is that from this site, many other conservative sites have been spawned. Case in point, Second Amendment Sisters, Inc was born right here on FR.

Hats off to you, Mr. Robinson! Where would we be without you and FR?

Damn right.

Dear MSM, elected liberal elite, unelected liberal wanna be elite, and the rest of the drones: We are coming after you politically and we will win. We outnumber you and you know it. Get ready for the full rejection of the counterrevolution. Now, go crawl back under your rock.

My contribution is a mere 0.2% of all the posts ever made on FR, so it's lost in the haze of Conservative thought ~ but I'm a blood relative to Obama's mother about lebenteenzillion times ~ probably one of the man's closest relatives outside of his sisters, brothers, grandmother, nieces, nephews and his daughters.

So there's some Canadian puke wants to get in a big fistfight about racism or something? Bring that peckerwood on! Anytime, anyplace.

I also notice that they can’t spell kristinn’s name right.

In addition to calling Jim Robinson “Jim Thompson,” they’ve called kristinn “Kristin N.”

The left-wing propagandists can’t even get a smear campaign right any more.

Thanks Jim. You convinced even a cheapskate like me to contribute to keeping the site going.

Including lurking time, I have probably spent at least 7-8 years on this site. I can’t even remember how I heard about it.

Free Republic demonstrates one of the main differences between conservatives and leftists: A sense of humor.

Many times I wanted to respond to a post with humor, only to be beaten to the punch, often by several Freepers.

Thanks again, Jim.

Mega thank you dittos to Jim too.
And I would add something about FR that noone else has said so far. Freepers are damn funny. Reading our comments and viewing the hilarious images(last thing before bed and first thing in the am) keeps me sane in this crazy reality that we are having to endure(temporarily, we hope) under the reign of Curious George and Aunt Edna.
I don’t mean to say that FR posts are chuckle funny: I’m sayin’ some of the comments here are gut busting, roll off your chair, fall on the floor, choke, gasp, and maybe even wet your pants kinda funny....the level of guffawing that scares your dog or causes reactions like:”honey, what’s wrong with you?”.
It may be at the expense of Bam and Mrs. Bam alot of the time. But hey: we need to laff in order to keep from crying. And The Imposter deserves it for being such a phony who wants to take away our freedoms.
Keep up the good work, Freepers. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!!!

that would be all you could hear. We saw that for fifty years of MSM.

thought not.
