Skip to comments.Shocker: Reporter Who Found Racist Comments About Malia Obama Has Advocated The Planting Of Same
Posted on 07/13/2009 2:11:55 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Chris Parry of the Vancouver Sun recently wrote an article about a bunch of nasty comments posted about Obamas daughter Malia on Free Republic:
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.
blah, blah, blah snipped
Those comments are pretty stupid. As much as I dislike Obama and his policies and his lack of honest with the public, and as much as I think hes taking this country in the absolute wrong direction, his family doesnt deserve comments like this. And such comments certainly arent productive, politically. People who might have been swayed by arguments focusing on Obamas policies are just going to be turned off by such nonsense.
And besides, FreeRepublic.com isnt alone in having comments like this. They happen at any blog with open comments liberal, conservative or otherwise. Im sure I could troll through the comments at Daily Kos, for instance, and come up with no small amount of mean-spirited and hateful invective aimed at the Bush family, including the twins Jenna and Barbara. Cherry-picking a few threads of comments and using those comments to smear an entire website and/or group of people is a silly game serious political commentators should stop playing.
I dont know if some or all of the FreeRepublic comments were, in fact, staged by Parry or others but certainly this undermines Parrys credibility.

How interesting. Can we trace the accounts? How new were they? Were they active? Mods? An info on this?
What a surprise ...
There are special places in hell for evil persons such as Chris Parry.
There are special places in Heaven for angels like Jim Robinson.
I am sure its just a coincidence that a guy who was at KOS advocating the planting of racist comments on conservative boards then came to FR and lo and behold found racist comments very quickly and that he was a “reporter”...
..yes all just a coincidence
I don’t know that it undermines his credibility. The loony left won’t care a bit. And they are the only ones that listen to this loon anyway.
The MSM is the enemy. They influence EVERYTHING in politics.
Down with the trolls.
Has anyone attempted to contact the Vancouver Sun? It would be interesting to talk to their editor and see if he knows about this.
Bah, JimRob is no angel. But he knows how to stick it to the leftist's like no other human on earth. Chris Parry is screwed, and not in the way he is used to.
When does wishful thinking become a self serving lie?
How many of their perceptions have been created by their own attempt to frame the story? How much is their own projection?
So.. its also worth nothing that this reporter, Mr. Parry, has actually advocated on Daily Kos for liberals to register on sites like FreeRepublic and post objectionable comments so that news reporters can report on them.
I dont know if some or all of the FreeRepublic comments were, in fact, staged by Parry or others but certainly this undermines Parrys and any reporting Media’s credibility.
This reporter has a vendetta against FR! I have communicated with him privately and he is dead set against everything FR stands for! He watches this site like a weasel!
The guy just cause me to become a monthly donor again, lol.
A lot of FReepers did. Parry claims it caused his article to be bumped up to a feature.
I know one thread on here yesterday was discussing the picture with Malia in her peace t-shirt. There were a lot of comments in that thread directed at the guy who was next to her in the picture and he looked like a bum. A lot of those comments went along the lines of what was said in your post above. I wonder if he is taking some of the comments directed at the bum next to her and attributing it to comments directed at her?
That Sorry Tory needs to focus on his own country...
I didn’t see the original comments, but were the accounts recent signups? While a wide range of opinions are expressed on FR, it’s obvious that the most all of us would never make or condone comments such as these. Parry or his followers no doubt planted them to discredit the right and Free Republic, and I suspect this type of thing happens a lot in various forms. Good thing this guy was outed, though I won’t hold my breath for the MSM to give it any space.
As a reminder to your general public, Americans don’t do “taint of blood”, it’s in the Constitution.
Offspring are not guilty of the sins of the parents unless or until the offspring grow up and continue in their parents’ footsteps.
Gee, do you think MSNBC will pick up and feature this story?
I’m kind of curious about why the left doesn’t have anything to say about comments posted on the neonazi sites like stormfront.
Why pick out a handful of posts at FR when stormfront and others are probably nothing but racist comments?
Could it be that racism isn’t what the left is really concerned about but a valid threat to their grip on power from the mainstream right? Or is it that the neonazis and left have merged into one and are hoping that no one notices?
David Duke still has a webpage dedicated to Cindy Sheehan and its been up for several years now. I have yet to see even one story about that klansman supporting a far lefty. Stormfront was even encouraging members to send money to support Sheehan.
Duke’s page that I won’t link to.
I am shocked........ ;-)
I find it interesting that Parry would take the time to do this. If he’s an obama supporter, he should know that his guy won. So what’s the point? Seems like he’s just trying to make a name for himself - in an odd way. I guess I should ask him.
Mr. Parry, what’s your point?
Perhaps he should be reported to the CHRC to enjoy their tender (sic) hospitality and investigative methods.
Help ourselves and FreeDominion at the same time as I’d be willing to bet that he’s been a major thorn in their side as well.
GOOD NEW ALERT
The Kossacks already realize the big game is lost as per this post:
We Gotta Find a Way to Reach Gen X (0+ / 0-)
that block that keeps polling more Republican than kids and boomers. They matured under Reagan and they’re going to be voting for a long time to come.
The Vancouver Sun will probably give Parry a promotion and a raise.
JR’s a sinner just like the rest of us.
Maybe there's a separate place to post these lovely little leftist “tolerance” lessons, so we can collect them and have them handy for folks like Kristinn to throw back at idiots like David Shuster (or Bill O’Reilly) when they get the opportunity.
Its actually a pretty typical liberal strategy to reach deep within themselves for some secret animus or sin and accuse conservatives of just such an animus or sin.
therefor whenever you hear such accusations from a particular liberal — its always helpful to track down their own comments on the same topic in a different context.
Just scored a ban on IRC for myself arguing over this one. They’re hopeless, they really believe they have the high ground.
I did a quick search of the Vancouver Sun website and could not find Chris Parry’s information. His articles are STILL posted though.
And it’s no surprise to us. FReepers are the best!
Someone posted they think he is just a stringer.
He got into it with a few Freepers on a thread about him....but stopped after he realized that he wasn’t dealing with what he believed to be “redneck, gun-toting, uneducated religious nuts”.
That’s one big weakness on the left -
they believe what they tell each other in their
They ranged from a few months to a few years old. Doubt they were plants unless long-term sleepers. But most of the statements I saw were really referring to the parents, as in how could America’s First family dress their children (and the cousin) that way on an Official International Mission? The Daily Mail (UK) published and captioned the pictures not us. Didn’t see any explicit racism unless you think that criticizing the way parents dress their children is racist. But we pulled the thread because there’s no need to copycat the Democrats, DailyKos, HuffPost, the MSM, et al, in their really overboard and offensive treatment of Sarah Palin and her children. They should back off or at least not whine about receiving the same. I have nothing but contempt for the Marxist hypocrites.
Don’t feel bad about getting the banhammer on IRC. That’s par for the course in those parts.
We be talkin’ boucha...
I’m amazed we didn’t get 18 cazillion zots that day.
Someone posted they think he is just a stringer.
What is a “stringer”?
He posted again today. Tried to claim that all the bad stuff he has said was in his past and he’s moved on. We pointed out that his Palin screeds were recent. He then said that he had to get back to work. :-)
someone who writes stories on contract.. ie, someone who writes a bunch of stories and then submits them to the paper, who buys what they want. He isn’t an actual employee.
I think he knows he’s not in Kansas anymore.
Yeah. Freepers didn’t let him get away with anything.
