Congressional Hearings on Islam: You liberals...ďItís your disease thatís killing meĒ.
The Religion Of Conquest Islamic Learning Center ^ | 03/11//11 | Damon Whitsell

Posted on 03/11/2011 8:35:30 PM PST by damonw

I am writing this as I am watching The Congressional Hearings on the Radicalization of Islam for the third time. And I have to say that it is you liberals that have given me the final remedy for my sickness of being a 911 Truther/Patriot and conspiracy buff.

But ironically now that I am cured, I have a new sickness to battle and it is the leftist/liberal ideology and world-view. Michael Savage is right! I used to think it was just over-inflated and hyperbolic rhetoric to call “Liberalism a Mental Disorder” but now I believe it is true. And it is truly “Your disease that is killing me”.

Can we believe that the left is just blind, even willfully? I think not! It appears they know what they are doing and holding true to the definition of liberalism, they are striving hard to get rid of the old and to bring about a new world order of things. It’s not just the power elite of the world we must fight but the ideology they peddle and push.

As proof that I was once a big time conspiracy buff that had an aversion to all things political, just listen to my song here called “Your Blind Eyes are Killing me”. I swore I would never vote again but.... READ MORE AT SITE.

Boy, are you going to get it for excerpting your own article from your own blog. Prepare yourself!

Hi fr,,, can you explain to me what is wrong with that?

I am under the impression that if your posting collages of other peoples material to your blog your supposed to post in the bloggers forum. But I think when you write your own stuff, even though it is published on your blog, it is OK to post outside of the bloggers forum. Am I wrong about that?

Thanks for you help in understanding the rules.

Bloggers can post full copy articles - not excerpts - in the bloggers forum. Posting excerpt of your own blog and driving people away from the FR site is considered blog pimping and is severely frowned upon around here.

Jim Robinson, owner of Free Republic, on Bloggers:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2636843/posts?q=1&;page=501

“I have no complaint if a good conservative blogger posts his own material to FR, not as an excerpt to drive hits and discussion back to his blog, but rather to impart useful information to OUR readers and to promote and join in on the discussion and conservative activism HERE on FR.

If a blogger can’t or refuses do that, and if he constantly complains or fights with our participants over it, then I’d just as soon he doesn’t post here. It’s not my job to make his content or his presentation or cooperation acceptable to our readers. That’s his job. And if he cannot do it or refuses to do it and continues posting brief excerpts only and obviously attempting to draw away our participants while loudly complaining about it, then I have no sympathy for his complaints and the more apt I am to ban his account and blog.”

A word to the wise is generally sufficient. We don't want to drive good conservative thought off of FR. But we need to fight a recent surge of people using FR as a launching pad for click-through marketing attacks. This kind of abuse is unfair to our volunteer donors that keep FreeRepublic.com running.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Thanks for the help Pauly.

Let me ask this. My articles center point was Saliva’s video “Your Disease”. Is there a way to post videos here? And what do I do in this case where the video makes the emotional impact and I want the video included. Should I just not post those kind of post or is there a place to post them?

Not to seem difficult but the text from Jim you posted confused me because I don’t think I did a “click-through marketing attack” (is that where people try to get you to their blogs to make money off advertising?).

Anyway, I appreciate any help in understanding the rules. THANKS. DAMON

Hey, no problem. We only have problems with morons with attitude. That clearly doesn't include you, FRiend. :0)

You cannot post videos directly on FR. I'm pinging humblegunner to this post who can help you with video links as I don't know if there is something special about them or not. He does them all the time. I might learn something, too.

Because the vast majority of blogger want FReepers to click through to their blogs to get blog hits for which they are paid, we consider this blog pimping and require that bloggers not excerpt their work. You may not get paid for blog hits but we can't maintain an endless list of who does or doesn't do this so we have just the one rule. OK?

Thank you so much for your attitude and consideration of your fellow FReepers!

Regarding the video embedded on the blog:

At the bottom right of the embed screen you’ll see an option to “watch on Youtube”.

Click that, the video opens in Youtube.

Copy the url that appears in the address bar.

Paste it here.

Let me thank you for your attitude Pauly! It is nice to get help without a big kick in the rump. Thanks for taking your time to help me.

yeh, that would be a big mess and headache. I can understand that and will gladly follow this guideline and will not post excerpts for my articles..

One more question for you. If you went to my blog you will see some of the text in the article are hot links linking off to articles or videos about that specific subject matter. Can I put at the top,,”Some of the text are hot links”,, hoping others will go to the blog and click on those links or do I need to do html to make hotlinks here?

THANKS AGAIN!!!

THANK YOU humblegunner!

I’m not sure what you mean by embed screen but I am assuming that your talking about the editor here at FR. I’ll do a mock post, but not post it, to test what you said here and see if I can figure it out.

Thanks for your time and help!!!

Hi humblegunner,

I acted like I was going to make a post and did not see an “Embed Screen”.

I guess I could just post a URL to the video but would prefer to embed the videos here for convenience to the reader.

I know that on a WP blog, if you have a pluggin, you can use a short code such as [youtube example] or [youtube=URL] to embed videos on the blogpage.

Can you tell me exactly what embed screen your talking about (are you talking about on youtube?) and where I can find it?

THANKS for your time again.

Embedding is not possible.

I don't really see how embedding is more convenient than a link.
It's more pleasing graphically but that's about it.

When you embed a video on a blog, it manifests as a "screen shot"
of the video, usually with a control or two. With Youtube vids,
one of these controls allows you to play the video on Youtube which
will provide he direct link to the video.

,”Some of the text are hot links”

Sure, as long as the main text is here I can't imagine that you'd recreate the whole thing here. You understand what we're after and you are on the right track. Go for it. We need good conservatives here on FR. That IS the point! :0) (We just don't like blog pimps. They get kicked in the butt. ;0)

AAAHHH, I get it. WEH HEW!! :)

Thanks for both of your time! I hope next time my posting is not up to par that the next FReepers to confront me will be as nice and helpful as ya’ll.

Pauly,,, I was confused about what I was (politically) for a long time. I knew I was more conservative than liberal but had a bad taste in my mouth for all things political. From what I have learned about Liberalism, during my study of Islam, I am far far away from those guys.

I’m not sure I will start calling myself a Republican (just because I am going to vote that way), I’ll have to study the party more, but I feel I am on my way to that.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!

This is a conservative site, not a republican site, but you'll find that out quickly enough. Republicans are, on the whole, more like democrats than conservatives are. Constitutional Conservatives really hew to the constitution. If the stuff you post doesn't do that you'll hear about it for sure!

This is a rough and tumble place and there's no place better.

Enjoy!
