Skip to comments.Banned from Demoncratic Underground ... for just being a Freeper

Yes ...its true. I discovered today that I have been banned from DU(h) simply for the following ....
Replying to a post that was complaining that given the political atmosphere since 9-11 odds are that our country will probably have a Republican House, Senate, and President after the 2002 election. I replied ... one can only hope.
Posting in my profile that my profile could be viewed at www.freerepulic.com
Thank the stars we have such a bastion of freedom and free thought like DU(h)
But I figured that freedom of thought and expression were ideals that the Democrats cherished. Even a 'normal' discussion of the facts is not allowed unless you agree with the leftist party line. For example, if you post information about Ng Lap Seng and his meetings with Clinton in the White House, you will get banned. But if you post information about Bush and the Oilmen, you are welcome.
Here, you can talk about Bush Sr and the cocaine conspiracy without being banned. You can't talk about Clinton and the cocaine conspiracy over there. That is the difference, and that is why this site flourishes with ideas and their site languishes in darkness. They are simply afraid of the truth, they are afraid to even look for the truth, if the truth will damage the credibility of their party. This site is not afraid of pursuing the truth, even if it will damage the party, because this site is about ideals and ideology, not party affiliation.
But what's most disturbing is that they hate ideas. They hate almost any idea that does not support their way of thinking, and they are going to ban anyone who supports an idea that is opposed to their philosophy. That is what makes them, and the Democratic party, very scary.
Bastion, maybe--but THOUGHT has little to do with the place, and the people inhabiting same.
All good Freepers get banned from DU.
I was banned about 6 or seven times so far. The latest ban was today. :-)
Here they, in such self righteous mode, complain about disappearing posts on FR as if posts there donn't get deleted for the simple crime of expressing an opposing point of view.
2) Go to DU and re-register new screen names for yourself, using your free email addresses.
3) FReep their archives. Pick out a thread(s) out of the many there, find arguments (lies) of theirs that you disagree with and post your rebuttals. Remember to stay civil. No foul language or name calling.
When you make a post on their archived threads, it doesn't get bumped to the top where everyone will see it and respond. The archived thread stays right where it is when you post on it and you get in the last word. Most likely, no one, not even the moderators, know you have done this and your posts probably won't get deleted.
In my limited time there, I never attacked anyone, I never called anyone any names, I always answered every question posited to me. I was called names, I was harassed, I was attacked with ad-hominems. Nevertheless, I was banned.
I didn't read the whole thing, but the 'open tags' were funny, somebody studied a few habits. (LetsRoll looks like a particular heavy posting finger FReeper I think we can all recognize!)
Hey, good to hear you on Radio Freerepublic the other night. Good job!
I've been banned 6 times, always returning using another browser mask utility. So far I've used up:
Check it out, you'll be banned for the mildest comment that does not follow their agenda, (it may take a day or two - their admin staff is small). It is fun, they really foam at the mouth. Still crying to re-counting the election, blame-America-firsters, anti-Iseral, etc.
They HATE and fear Freepers.
Those ladies are going to do really well, I'd like to see em go bigger and better on air versus web because they both come across as very well educated and very intelligent on current affair etc etc......
Good folks they are........and I hear they are very huggable, only a rumor though I'll have to confirm for myself some day (hopefully). Stay Safe HP !
Maybe the DU fascists will let Freepers back into the forum if we wear an identifying armband!
The thought police at DU are exceedingly intolerant of dissent.
FreeRepublic is a libertarian utopia compared to the censors over there.
Bottom line: DU members, with all their opinions, are at least tolerated here on FR.
The reverse is not true.
DU is fascist, and they need to realize it...
You must play the part of your polar OPPOSITE!
Remember, a vast number of their membership are liberal, but they have their limit.
Play the part of a rabid COMMUNIST and do it with fervor! Spout off all the anti-capitalist rhetoric you can spew!...It'll re-define their website and convince the middle-of-the-road Democrats there that their party is falling off the face of the American landscape.
We call them communists and socialist, but we can't make the dent from HERE, can we?....Let them hear it on their own turf, for a change.
They'll get fed up and come to the conclusion that their party is too far gone for the mainstream.
Reverse psychology, folks.
