Skip to comments.Hate Speech Against Malia Obama On Conservative Blogs Reported By Hate Speech Planting Journalist
Posted on 07/12/2009 1:52:21 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar
Well, should've seen this coming: conservative blog Free Republic fired hate speech off at Malia Obama after this photo of her appeared, letting their commenters go to town. But the journalist who reported this as news isn't innocent, either.
Chris Parry of The Vancouver Sun highlighted some of the comments on the mainstream, hard right-wing blog/news aggregator Free Republic. Among them, a picture of Michelle talking to Malia Obama with the caption: "To entertain her daughter, Michelle Obama loves to make monkey sounds." Classy. These mouthbreathing, borderline morons then kept piled on:
"A typical street whore." "A bunch of ghetto thugs." "Ghetto street trash." "Wonder when she will get her first abortion. "Could you imagine what world leaders must be thinking seeing this kind of street trash and that we paid for this kind of street ghetto trash to go over there?" wrote one commenter. "They make me sick .... The whole family... mammy, pappy, the free loadin' mammy-in-law, the misguided chillin', and especially 'lil cuz... This is not the America I want representin' my peeps," wrote another. Such was the onslaught of derision on the site that the person who originally complained about the slurs, a Kristin N., claims only one comment in the first hundred posted actually criticized the remarks as inappropriate.
FreeRepublic claims to be a site that "does not advocate or condone racism, violence, rebellion, secession, or an overthrow of the government." Yet, the thread went down, and back up with the original comments in tact, and then some, notes Chris Parry, the story's writer. Parry was careful and kind enough to - maybe unnecessarily - note the few reasonable voices in the crowd who were conservative, on Free Republic, and not racist. But there're always going to be a few exceptions to the rule, which, as far as you should be concerned, are absolute swamp creatures. Pardon any political incorrectness, but I think you'll agree if you happen to go over and dip your toe in what's mostly a bog of contagiously slimy invective and general retardation.
It gets worse, though. Chris Parry, it appears, has advocated on his Daily Kos blog any number of egregious offenses, among them: posting hate speech on sites like Free Republic and blaming it on conservatives. Parry posted under the name "hollywoodoz" on Daily Kos, where his signature was "Fool me once, I'll punch you in the fucking head." Parry outed himself as hollywoodoz here, where he discloses the company he helped start. In essence: Parry, the journalist, found his story right where he'd been circling it for a very long time, and reported it as news. Sigh.
Bottom line: Parry's noble intentions are paving him a road to hell, by taking the same one the slimeball majority at Free Republic employs. They're probably going to cheer a "mainstream," centrist blog pointing out the offenses of a liberal reporter trying to expose hate speech, but they shouldn't get it mixed up. A quick glance at Free Republic and you'll probably see the same thing I did: some of the most egregious examples that lend credence to the idea that some people just shouldn't be allowed near a keyboard, or to open their mouths, no matter what their political affiliation. Or, as some would have it: STFU.
LOL - Wonder where his sentiments lie.
I never read any of that, and I read FR frequently.
What moron thinks FR is a blog?
OK — FreeRepublic is the latest ‘talking point’ coming out of the Alinksy-agenda-spewing libbies. It was Rush a bit ago, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin. Now, suddenly, it’s Free Republic. And the troll-postings start, and the lying quotes and the planted slime. And it’s like a many-headed hydra.
Such an honor. Good work, Jim.
Sounds a tad sour grape-ish
Caption this picture threads are all about humor, dark or otherwise.
Oh my did I say “dark”.
Excuse me while I go hang myself...
OK... I keep hearing about this “deleted thread” on FR... did it really happen or did Chris Parry make it all up?
What, with a NOOSE? You racist bastard!
“Parry posted under the name “hollywoodoz” on Daily Kos, where his signature was “Fool me once, I’ll punch you in the fucking head.”
Another keyboard warrior...I always get a kick out of these freaking idiots who are from the party of peace...leftism...120 million dead and counting in just about 100 years...kind of like the “Religion of Peace” isn’t it? Think that will show up in the next MSM drive by hit piece?
And thats the kind of sh$t this guys is talking about.
I’ve seen a couple of nasty things but they were removed.
Never even saw the Malia thread. Did we really say these things?
Wondering if the Gawker was disgusted at what was said about Sarah’s family?
Hey someone call Jim Thompson and tell him that a foul mouth KosKid in Vancouver and David Hit N Run Shuster are going to be sliming FR over a few comments on one thread
I posted it. It was a legitimate thread, 160+ posts with about five ding-a-ling comments about the kid that were removed.
some one found a pic of parry??
The original is a terribly written article. No one can understand what happened by what it says. Talk about diffusing the content to the point it is un-intelligible.
Judging from the comments at the site, I assume that “Gawker” is a big, liberal site. Well, the site got one hit from me. That should do it.
Do you think some human populations are more related to simians than others?
WTH are you trying to accomplish with this idiotic drivel?
I reject your comment, and invite others to do the same.
Ahh! Liberalism on the march...!
Just one more quote Dear Foster,
"...as some would have it: STFU..."
Good, they removed that ridiculous comment.
I’m almost positive that a few ‘progressives’ were let loose here to taint this forum.
There are very few here that stoop to their level, IMHO.
Made it all up. Check with our boss, Jim Thompson for confirmation.
The radical left is losing it with Obama and they cannot handle it. They cannot face reality, as usual -— so this is the kind of crap they start spewing and planting. They are filth — plain and simple. These fools and morons can only DO CHARACTER ASSASSINATIONS, tell lies, and spin the truth.
They have absolutely NOTHING positive or constructive for America — either in speech or deed.
Well THAT makes a lot of sense now... and so the entire Freeper community is being condemned for the bad behavior of the few... eh!
I call bullsh!t.
I've been here since (before) Dec 3, 1997. Anytime I've seen a racist or violent post, it's been flagged and pulled and repeat offenders banned.
Maybe it's time we start publishing the IPs of repeat offenders, and let the Freepers do some investigating.
He has a bio on IMDB.com
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who hit the abuse button.
I saw at least one of the threads. I also saw the letter Jim received before he deleted the thread(s), which makes me wonder if they weren’t prompting Jim to delete it so that they could quote all they wanted from the deleted thread(s) with no-one able to verify or see that it was a small sampling? Yes, there were some racist or mean remarks (mostly against Michelle, not the girls). Yes, this needs to quit on FreeRepublic- it cheapens our arguments and gives fuel to our enemies.
HOWEVER, I believe the bulk of the racists comments are in the Chris’ article, and they were not the bulk of the responses to the thread. (In one of the threads, I noted, POLITELY, that I would not let my 11 year old daughter wear shorts that short.) Additionally, I would not be surprised if some of the racist comments were added there by leftist trolls.
LOL I got a timeout from FR (for violence) once for a misunderstood comment about a video game.
“I never read any of that, and I read FR frequently.”
It was a “caption this” thread with Big MO making a funny facial expression at the girls...and the captions were pretty much like what he says they were...except he left out the one that said “Goonie Goo Goo” which really cracked me up, given the picture...hey, let’s not pretend it wasn’t there...it was...so what? How many POST or NYT cartoons of W as a chimp were we treated to over the years? They WILL try to silence any humiliation of anyone on their side and use “any means necessary” to do it..screw ‘em, let’s take the gloves off and have at it, shall we? Isn’t that what they want? I have listened to W and Laura and the girls be ravaged and seen what these animals have done to Sarah...screw ‘em if they can’t take a joke...print that, stupid...and do you want a reprint of a THOUSAND articles and pictures of Bush as a chimp????
“Im almost positive that a few progressives were let loose here to taint this forum.”
It’s been happening since the very beginning.
Even before the Internet, it happened on BBSs like Town Hall.
I had a comment removed once, because I said that my ex-husband beat the excrement out of me (and I starred out part of the word!), as I didn’t realize that the thread was in the religion forum. I also got a warning for doing so.
I think we're all going to have to be on the lookout for inappropriate posts—whether made by real racists, or by socialist trolls trying to make us look bad.
I saw the responses and was a little surprised. Many of them, however, said she’s an 11 year old kid and that’s what they are wearing these days. For the few really mean ones, there were many more saying “don’t mess with the kids”.
Sounds like this advice applies to everyone BUT the "author".

Hmmm, this dumba&& admits that this was an agenda by Chris Parry and yet still calls Free Republic racist, etc...
No due process of law needed.
Can you provide a link or quote? All that was linked from the original thread was a stupid anagram.
It was a thread right after Obama talked about getting rid of nukes and Malia is walking around with a peace sign tshirt.
I saw that thread and I saw lots of comments on “Marketing” their daughters but I did not see anything about their kids being trash or anything like that.
I did, as well. We need to be more alert about these comments and report every one of them. This is NOT a racist forum.
