Those of you. You know who you are.
I don't care who you are or what your reasoning is. Your siding with the maistream media against Palin is doing nothing to help Republicans or Conservatism in general. You are hurting your own cause. Unless you are a DU troll. Or a liberal Republican who has no idea what the heck you are even talking about.
Ani Palin comments (such as "shes not fit to be President") should be seen as trolling and should not be tolerated on Free Republic, any conservative web site or any conservative setting. While I am not calling for anyone to be purged from this website. I, and others are going to keep a list of Palin hating trolls so the rest of you know who has credibility and who doesn't. who is a troll, and who isn't.
We will know your posting history. We know where your opinons are coming from. The Palin bashing is getting old. And the cat calls will likely increase for Jim Robinson to do some fall cleaning if this continues.
So, please. stop inflicting damage on conservatism.
Look, folks have to defend Palin for themselves. She has all of the class in the world and she will rise above the crap..
If you want folks to stop saying things that are wrong or unfair, call them out.. make them prove the point, give the facts why they are wrong.
We don't make people shut up here. We just don't.
I’m pro-Palin. I’m anti-Shut-up-and-go-away-if-you-can’t-see-things-my-way. Smacks of small minds.
“I don’t care who you are or what your reasoning is.”
Ani? Is that you, Ani? It IS you!
I understand. But geesh. It is wearing thin. And it is just what the left wants to see.
Get a life
I do hope someday you will understand that debate does indeed have an important place at the table.
“Anti Palin comments are counter-productive and should not be tolerated among us.”
Sorry, I love Sara but I will not allow ANYONE to tell me whose ass to kiss, and who is off limits.
I am a Gov Palin supporter, but this is not your decision to make. Gov Palin has taken a lot of abuse from the Left and the media (redundant, I know) but most of those oppossed to her here have been considerate and fair. Also, they give her supporters here a means to hone their skills in defending her. I’m glad to hear the point—counterpoint; it helps me counter the shrill Leftist charges.
Have you PM’ed Jim Robinson and asked him what he thinks?
Don’t worry about it buddy, at the end, Sarah will have the last laugh. I was going to make my own thread of this youtube video, but I figured I’d just post is here, even Chris Matthews admits that Sarah is going to be the nominee in 2012, he praises her A LOT, saying her book tours, they are NOT book tours, they are campaign stops. Says she has an eye at looking at the camera and talking to the voter, hasn’t seen anyone like this since Reagan. Even Norah O’Donnell was praising her. Either yesterday was opposite day or they see the writing on the wall that Obama is one and done
I like Sarah Palin but I detest political correctness, which is what you are promoting. Free and open debate is essential to a free society.
It’s wearing thin, but not as fast as your suggestion. Go back and read post 2 at least 6 times!
And I’m a BIG Sarah fan!
I would be careful about demanding all criticism against Palin here to cease. I don’t want to see this place become a forum where only comments made in agreement are accepted. What is Bush fans had demanded that all anti-Bush posters be cleansed from Free Republic. If a conservative (not a Troll) has a legitimate complaint that they can back up I say let them post. If anything, it should encourage good debate that will perhaps strengthen the arguments of those that support Palin. Just MHO.
Whenever some of our “self proclaimed” conservatives start taking pot shots at Palin and others like her, its a dead give away that they are really 5th columnists or moles. They post their garbage hoping to cause discord and defeatism among real conservatives.
Idiots who post vanities and like to blow it out their butts should be stopped.
If you are going to be the Thought Police, you should make sure the Thoughts to be Policed are spelled correctly.
It is not a debate. It is either a left wing attack or it is stupidity. Either way, it is counter productive.
Of course Palin is fit to be President. She has more exec experiance than the President we have now.
Dude, get a grip. There are plenty of people here that don’t care for Palin. Even if she chooses to run, there ain’t gonna be a coronation, here or anywhere else.
I smell another purge coming.
Those of you. You know who you are.
I don’t care who you are or what your reasoning is. Your siding with the FOX media against Obama is doing nothing to help the government or our country in general. You are hurting your own cause. Unless you are a FR troll. Or a right-wing nut who has no idea what the heck you are even talking about.
Anti Obama comments (such as “hes not fit to be President”) should be seen as trolling and should not be tolerated in our country, any web site or any setting. While I am not calling for anyone to be purged from this website. I, and other ‘czars’ are going to keep a list of Obama hating trolls so the rest of you know who has credibility and who doesn’t. who is a troll, and who isn’t.
We will know your posting history. We know where your opinons are coming from. The Obama bashing is getting old. And the cat calls will likely increase for Rahm and Axelrod to do some fall cleaning if this continues.
So, please. stop inflicting damage on Democracy.
(not so funny when it comes from the other side, is it?)
Agree. There is no place for this thread. I am 100% pro-Palin and waiting to get a bumper sticker: “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted Palin” (can’t yet find one) but any attempt to silence smacks of censorship. Trolls will quickly be recognized and booted out. But there must always be room for honest and constructive dissent.
I support Sarah Palin for President in 2012.
I also support free speech, and believe that the best thing to do with Palin bashers is either educate or ignore them.
In my opinion reducing Free Republic to a narrow base of people who agree with each other on everything isn’t going to achieve anything positive. Just the opposite.
I’m unaware of any credentials that make you arbiter on FR.
Wether you tolerate those comments or not is of no concern to me.
I love Sarah, but you’ve got no right to demand anything from anybody else.
A lot of people, even those here who should know better believe what they are spoon fed by the media, so they will indeed parrot the anti-Palin line as if were gospel.
Enlighten them to their folly, but don’t make veiled threats of purges, that’s not going to serve any purpose other than to make you appear weak and petty. Sarah is neither and those of us who supporter her should follow her example when fighting the baseless smears here and elsewhere.
There are some misguided people who think Obama is fit to be president. We know he isn't.
This is the modern day Liberty Tree. We speak our minds; get over yourself whomever started this-!
“I understand. But geesh. It is wearing thin.”
I thank the Lord that you are just a poster here and not someone with any real ability to force your views on the rest of the world.
I like Sarah as much as anyone. That being said...you’re a bonehead.
Sarah Palin represents a solid 25% of the voting public...1/2 the Republican base. Alienating her supporters by trashing her is a sure fire way to guarantee a GOP loss in 2012 which they very well may do.
Im sure the dems are seeing this and laughing their ass's off.
With ‘friends’ like you posting silliness like this I dont think she’ll need enemies.
Sorry, I cannot support your censorship ideas.
If a small minority of the folks who post commentary on FR have misgivings about Sarah Palin, so be it.
Thus far it seems that Sarah Palin will continue to overcome her detractors. Even those on FR who occasionally post snide comments about her.
People who post stupid vanities should not be tolerated among us.
You betcha. Maybe “anti-Palin” posters should have a gold star affixed to their screen names so they can be shunned more efficiently? Would that satisfy you Palin worshippers? Or perhaps a semi-annual Freeper test to root out “anti-Palinites?” If a Freeper doesn’t believe that Sara Palin is either God or Reagan reincarnated they should be banned from FreeRepublic. Or Better Yet!!! Just changed the freaking website name to “SarahPalinisGod.com!” /s
Sycophants suck. I bet Sarah would agree.
What happened to Sarah last fall was a disgrace. And in my opinion, an even bigger disgrace is seeing conservatives take sides against her.
“she has too much baggage”
blah, blah, blah.
that is what the attacks were designed for, thats what they want you to think.
...especially if they do it more than once per week...
However, I agree... The blatant Romney/McCain/Huckabee trolls are bordering on libel with most of their crap.
Getting everyone on board to play nice ain't happening.
That's OK though, it's the sound of freedom. Just know that 99.9% of Freepers are just everyday people whose hearts and minds are in the right place. If they disagree with you on Palin, they agree with you somewhere else. Just move along to a different topic.
Tingles Chrissy nails it.
Must See TV, folks.
Very noble cause, but think on this. This is still a FREE COUNTRY and debate is healthy and necessary. BTW, I believe this country needs Sarah and 1,000’s if not millions just like her.
Thank you Sir!
should mention, I still have a pro-Palin bumper sticker magnet on my fridge...so don’t think I’m an “anti” complaining here...
Maybe, maybe not. But it is still fun.
