Underground freepmail campaign by unknown disgruntled FReeper
freepmail | 01/16/2011 | Mrs Dogood

Posted on 01/16/2011 11:49:56 AM PST by Jim Robinson

Hello. You don’t know me under this name. For reasons that are going to be obvious soon, I didn’t wish to send you this message with my usual Free Republic account. This message is an invitation, a welcome to a new forum called TrueBlueFreedom.com

While I love the people who make up Free Republic, I have many complaints about Jim Robinson and his cronies who run the actual website. Over and over again, whenever somebody has complained or offered suggestions, they have been told by JimRob and others to go and start their own website if they know so much. Well, I’ve decided to take them up on that offer.

I’ve started TrueBlueFreedom.com for three simple reasons, and once you’ve read those reasons, I’m sure you’ll agree that we need to make a few adjustments if we want this powerful bastion of conservatism to remain. The first reason is simple: Free Republic is too important to left in the hands of JimRob. Jim and his son John have repeated stated that if just one Freepathon goal isn’t met, that’s it - “Free Republic will be dead.” I can’t stand the idea of America without Free Republic. Imagine if we hadn’t been there when Dan Rather was passing around his forgeries, how different things would be today. Now realize that, as things are going, we won’t be around when the next Rathergate happens. We can’t allow that to happen, and since JimRob has publicly refused to deal with this issue, we have to take matters into our own hands. My solution is TrueBlueFreedom.com

The second reason is that I believe that free market capitalism has made America great, and that attempting any other system will lead us to ruin. A belief JimRob apparently doesn’t share, since he continues to refuse to place ads on Free Republic and instead depend on a PBS-esque donation system. We are not NPR, and we are not a charity – why do we raise money like one? For this reason, I’ve developed TrueBlueFreedom.com to depend on advertisements. TrueBlueFreedom.com will not depend on donations, instead, we will depend on the opportunities provided by the free market to create a self-sustaining version of Free Republic – without the constant Freepathons.

The third reason is that JimRob is, in my opinion, a petty tyrant. How many of you know somebody who was purged? How many wonder if you may be next on the list? If you’re neither of these people, consider this: Giuliani was America’s Mayor in 2008. That didn’t stop JimRob from purging all his supporters without warning. How do you know that whoever you support in the Republican primaries won’t raise JimRob’s wrath? How do you know the next purge group won’t be Mormons, Jews, Birthers, Pro-Palin, Anti-Palin, and so on? I believe that purging the non-believers and demanding total mental agreement with the “Dear Leader” is the exact opposite of conservative values, regardless of where JimRob stands on abortion and homosexuality. And for that reason, I’ve set up TrueBlueFreedom.com as a place where conservatives who follow the rules will not be banned, no matter how much I disagree with them. Regardless of your politics, religion, or favorite sport team, you will only be banned for breaking the rules. TrueBlueFreedom.com is a purge-free zone.

So, I hope you’ve read all this, and will accept my invitation. If this seems like something you can believe in, come to TrueBlueFreedom.com, sign up, and start talking. And if you like it, spread the word. Because Free Republic is too important to just let die.

The above was sent to me from someone who sent it via freepmail. Looks like it's going out to a ping list, so might as well bring it to light.

Some call me a tyrant. Whatever. I have stated my goals for Free Republic and will defend my right to freedom of speech and freedom of association and freedom to control the direction and content of my own personal property to the death! Those who wish to fight against me on these issues are free to do it elsewhere. I feel no compulsion to provide malcontents a soapbox. Wankers for Rudy McRomey can KMA!!

GIVING and Generosity are conservative values. I hope the TRUEBLUEWANKER reads that.

Word Origin & History

tyrant
c.1300, “absolute ruler,” from O.Fr. tyrant (12c.), from L. tyrannus “lord, master, tyrant “ (cf. Sp. tirano , It. tiranno ), from Gk. tyrannos “lord, master, sovereign, absolute ruler,” a loan-word from a language of Asia Minor (probably Lydian); cf. Etruscan Turan “mistress, lady” (surname of Venus).

“In the exact sense, a tyrant is an individual who arrogates to himself the royal authority without having a right to it. This is how the Greeks understood the word ‘ tyrant ‘: they applied it indifferently to good and bad princes whose authority was not legitimate.” [Rousseau, “The Social Contract”]

The spelling with -t arose in O.Fr. by analogy with prp. endings in -ant . Fem. form tyranness is recorded from 1590 (Spenser); cf. M.L. tyrannissa (1372).

The only criticism I would offer over the Rudy purge is that it could have been done sooner.

The rudybots had swallowed the MSM lie about Rudy being the only one who could beat She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named hook, line, and sinker. They were in a blind panic. No amount of reasoning would get through to them.

They would get rude and extremely mean to anyone who disagreed with them. AMF to them.

Well, to each his (or her) own, I guess, but as one of your “cronies” I think I’ll skip the invite.

If someone is really proud of the work they do in setting up their own board, why wouldn’t they use their real name? And why not just come right out and say what’s bothering them publicly? Opuses have been posted before, and usually they aren’t pulled.

All this seems both sneaky and cowardly.

Even though I'm sitting here in the lunch room all by myself, with nary an invitation from TrueBlue, it can KMA too.

You're a treasure Jim, and you and your family are owed a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.

You’re our Father in Freepdom. I appreciate all you’ve done for conservatism, and continue to do. Probably putting up with us when we get our undies in a knot is the most difficult.

BTW, if you’re a petty tyrant, then you are my favorite petty tyrant. FReep on Freepin on.

Now we can spend the rest of the afternoon trying to figure out who the disgruntled former freeper is.

Jim, I’ve never had a problem with the way you run things. In fact you’ve done an excellent job. You are a true patriot. I figure it’s your website you can do what you darned well please. I totally agree with you. I will never understand this kind of thinking. It’s like owning your own home, someone who doesn’t own the home comes in and doesn’t like the way your doing something or suggests you do something different and when you don’t they get mad. IT’S YOUR FREAKIN HOUSE.

She could have been nicer about it, that's for sure.

Something like: "Since Jim Robinson can't accomodate everyone, and prefers to keep Free Republic on the straight and narrow, I've set up [another Website] to accomodate those whose conservatism clashes with his. Fighting roomates often make good neighbours once they're no longer too close to each other. That's who I'm setting up [the other Website] for: good neighbors who don't fit the bill for houseguests."

Hrm....as far as I’m concerned you have to be pretty much an idiot to get banned from FR over an opinion unless that opinion is self evidently a liberal one.

I’ve been freely able to disagree with others here for well over 7 years.

If someone is complaing about getting Zotted...

Well I guess they shouldnt have been so obvious as to not be able to fool a bunch of “stupid conservatives”....

I Love the smell of zots...just about any time of day....

Have a good day JR.

Thanks for hosting.

He’s mad homosexuality isn’t considered conservative by reasonable people.

True blue is probable more like Log Cabin Purple.

How can anyone who believes going against God’s created order is good think they are being conservative?

Jim, I think there was at least 15,000 comments on that thread...

it went on for days and weeks...

Thats more than enough warning...

As many of the zottees deliberately challenged you and fell on their own swords, there was no lack of warning..

You just about zotted me because I merely pointed out some potential vulnerabilities to the script linking you all attempted with facebook, but to your unending credit, you did back off on that direction for whatever reason.
