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.
