Attention "Anyone But Obama" (ABO) FReepers! If you go to the thread at the link you will will see that JimRob has "declared a truce" and hundreds of ABO FReepers are now vigorously defending their belief, which I share, that the ineligible Marxist Manchurian MUST BE DEFEATED to preserve the Republic...without fear of "the ZOT"! Please consider a DONATION not just to fund renewal of expression and amplification of your ABO views, but let's over-achieve this FReepathon to get JR his new equipment!
IMO, Free Republic and FReepers could be vital in swing states in rallying just enough conservatives to tip the election and prevent our troops from having to salute for even one day longer than necessary an ineligible Marxist committed to destroying the USA !
Hey, you’re the 1 campaigning for the lgbt supporter, not me. You’re the bridesmaid at this gay wedding, sweetheart.
Now tell everyone how you’re the “ true conservative” and I’m a DU plant... if you’re going to mimic your master, you might as well read the whole freaking script.
Next subject: How wearing knee pads for romney means that ethically you are holding the bloody basin for abortionists yourself.
Too much truth for you?
I am not voting for Romney under any circumstances. I do not care who you vote for, but please don’t attack people for refusing to vote for a leftist traitor RINO.
And you wonder why people aren’t donating.
Could be be any stupider? (that’s a rhetorical question)
That isn’t what the post I quoted, said now is it?
I’m not campaigning for anyone, you kind hearted christian you.
I am simply voting for Obama’s republican opponent, because there is no other viable choice.
The only truth in your post is the depth of your own hate.
You are a disgrace.
Those of you who won't settle for ABO, I'm listening.
Then please -those who refuse to vote for Romney - don’t attack people who see that defeating Zero is job one, and only by uniting can we do that.
You are so full of it.
Romney didn’t push gay marriage..that was the MA Supreme Court. He fought the lower court ruling, tried to appeal the Supreme court ruling to the USSC, tried to get a compromise bill through the legislature, and even sued the legislature to vote on a constitutional amendment to prevent gay marriage.
His sin was obeying the Supreme Court of his state, just as I expect a President to obey the USSC even if they don’t like it.
On abortion, Romney renounced his pro choice stand, and the $50.00 copay was because of a MA state law that all government subsidized health care had to cover abortions. Abortion was already legal in MA, and Medicaid already covered abortions for low income residents. Private insurers aren’t required to cover abortion under Romneycare.
The abortion rate and the number of abortion providers fell after Romneycare....shouldn’t he get credit for that if you are going to blame him for everything that happened in MA while he was governor?
This stuff is history and can easily be verified, so why keep misrepresenting it? Do you really think people are fooled by this insane hyperbole?
Romney has plenty of faults to criticize him on, but when push comes to shove, you anti-ROmneys always fall back on these gross distortions of his actions on the hottest button issues....abortion and gay marriage.
For you to use those twisted “truths” as weapons against conservatives. trying to save this nation from the clutches of Obama and the Dems, is maddening.
Especially when these accusations pointed at Obama are true!
He’s the one that will facilitate homosexual marriage and push abortions....and you are happily helping him do it.
Shame on you.
A thing can’t be demonized that already demonizes itself.
If certain threads offend and upset you, wouldn’t you be happier avoiding them?
The threads don’t offend me, it is the holier than though attitude from the bigots that offend me.
Don’t pretend Romney is some conservative icon. Don’t bash those who post his true record.
IIRC, JimRob had about $14k budgeted for new equipment (pictures and descriptions were posted comparing the old and new) with half raised in the FReepathon last quarter and the other half to be raised in this quarter.
But JR posted that likely because of the now rescinded ban on ABO expression on FR, donations tanked to the extent that he had to back out the second $7k budgeted for this quarter's FReepathon to a reduced amount.
I am encouraging all FReepers, ABO and FUMR, to DONATE and help get Jim and FR his new equipment! We need FR to be as robust as possible in this campaign. Then go at it in comments and posts to make your case, whether ABO or FUMR, as hundreds of others are now doing at the linked thread at the top of this thread. Please consider a monthly donation, at least for this campaign!
I haven’t seen religious “bigotry”. I’ve seen people post threads with “facts” about Mormonism, if to that, is what you refer.
Myself, I don’t really care too much anymore for the religious “debates” here; I’m not Mormon, I’m Catholic. I could, if I wished, make a case for “bigotry” against my faith too, based on the same phenomena that seems to be occurring against Mormonism. (that there are “facts” posted that pro port to demonstrate Catholicism is false).
The “problem” with fighting against such posts, for both the anti-Catholic and anti-Mormon posts, is a) They are usually posted by the same people and thus rehashing the same points over and over again and b) It truly doesn’t do anything to fight the same people over and over again on a personal level.
That is, I’m never going to convince the same people who are anti-Catholic that they are wrong about their assertions. Thus, I’ve dropped such attempts (for the most part) for the simple reason of not wishing to focus on religion and taking away any hope of political unity. Besides, as I pointed out, it’s really the same people fueling the ongoing criticism of Catholicism here, so on a personal (if not religious level) there are certainly better ways to demonstrate their error than trading posts on a message board.
The same applies to the anti-Mormons. I don’t know why my Mormon FRiends (who seem to have given up and left, or been banned) didn’t get that. A Mormon here can either continue bashing their head against the wall, claiming “bigotry”, accomplishing nothing in the process, or now (given the truce) move forward and post positive things about Romney if they wish. The anti-Mormonism here isn’t going to change (same with the anti-Catholicism). I’ve realized that; I encourage any Mormon who feels “persecuted” to realize the same and move forward.
You are never going to unite people behind a con man.
You will feel a lot better tackling something you can do on this site, such as promoting your local conservative candidates.
That is a very good point. My suggestion would be a policy of no bashing of any religion or lack there of. Attacking some ones faith is the same as a personal attack IMHO.
There you go, religious bigotry right there posted on FR by AnTiw1 today in another thread. And that is by no means the first time I have seen such on this website.
Define bigot, please.
Define holier-than- thou.
I suspect your definitions will approximate those used by liberals. You don’t understand the issue, and nothing said to you will even begin to placate you or open your mind, because you aren’t interested in the POV of those nasty Christians.
You came onto this thread angry, shrill, and screeching-—clearly intending to start something. IMO, you’re a malcontent who simply cannot tolerate a POV which disagrees with your own.
