Romney Supporters Banned From Free Republic
Fox News Nation ^ | By Emily Schultheis, Politico

Posted on 11/01/2011 1:05:31 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Free Republic founder Jim Robinson has a message for supporters of Mitt Romney: go away.

In an email to POLITICO this afternoon, Robinson admitted that the site routinely blocks Romney supporters from posting -- and offered no apologies for the practice:

Free Republic is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-small government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty site. Governor Romney is none of the above. His record is that of an abortionist, gay rights pushing, gun grabbing, global warming advocating, big government, mandate loving, constitution trampling, flip-flopping liberal progressive with no core values. That and the fact that he is the chief architect and advocate for ObamaCare disqualifies him for any consideration whatsoever on Free Republic as a potential nominee for the presidency.

for the record, i will not vote for romney in the texas republican primary. however, i will vote for the republican that is chosen to run against obama. i simply can't stay home and take a chance on 4 more years of the continued destruction of the usa by the current regime.

My decision also.

You know they’re going to want to make it about him being a Mormon but I and the others who posted the daily Glenn Beck threads never had any problem.

Course, Glenn wasn’t trying to shove liberalism down our throats.

“What about the athists and non-Christians that post here?”

What about ‘em? I seem to know a few. In fact, the biggest collection of Orthodox and Zionist Jewish folk on the net seems to be FreeRepublic.

Rather welcomed, in fact.

"Romney is a liberal. Religion has NOTHING to do with it."

Romney is a liberal AND an adherent of a false religion. Either one disqualifies him from conservate support. Religion is fair game. Only the government is prohibited from considering religion. We the People have no such prohibition.

Religion speaks to a man's core values and reasoning ability. If Romney can convince himself that the inconsistencies between Mormonism and Biblical scripture don't matter, then he is not qualified to be President.

Long ago, because of Romneycare and endorsement of anthropogenic global warming I decided I could not vote for Romney.

If the RINO GOP wants to commit suicide by nominating him, I do not have the power to stop them, they will continue the one-party system to the end.

My only point was that Romney has so many Rino problems that religion is the least of them. Mormonism is just the final straw not the first.

Agreed. There is something about Romney that I cannot stomach.

Like another poster said, he justs wants it too much. He is a RINO and yes, that is much worse that Bi BO. Like an invisible, insidious cancer destroying everything it touches. And the Republican party will never recover.

"In an email to POLITICO this afternoon, Robinson admitted that the site routinely blocks Romney supporters from posting -- and offered no apologies for the practice:"

Admitted it? Hell, I've been blasting it for years!!

It's been on our home page in one form or another forever. And on our main page for the last couple years.

I have to keep reminding the RINO lovers who don't understand why they're not welcome on a pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-liberty, patriotic conservative site:

Welcome to Free Republic, America's exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives!

And I continually blast it out in front page or breaking news:

Long live the TEA party rebellion!! NO MORE RINOS!! NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!!

Purpose of FR and why we can never support Mitt Romney

I'm sorry, but those who cannot live with our pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-limited government positions are more than welcome to vote with their happy feet.

NO RINOS!! NO ROMNEY!!

NOT ON MY WATCH!!

Long live the TEA party rebellion!!

Long live our FREE Republic!!

I think they saw the writing on the wall. When DC decided to go after Murdoch for something that happened in England he knew he had to toe the Obama line. Fox had been drifting left for awhile. That was the final shove.

Thanks Jim for drawing a conservative line in the sand. No more political insider preordained faux conservative candidates. We had the same choice in 2008 with Juan McCainiac and we see how that worked out. People who say that Romney is the best chance to unseat Obama on the 2012 election don't even realize if the election comes down to voting for either Obama or Romney, they've already been outmaneuvered and played by the liberal system either way.
