MSNBC to Cover Pulled Free Republic Thread on Monday's David Shuster Show
Twitter and Daily Kos | Saturday, July 11, 2009 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/11/2009 4:53:55 PM PDT by kristinn

The Daily Kos has a post up quoting MSNBC personality David Shuster's Twitter page stating his show will be covering the controversy over Free Republic and comments about Malia Obama:

@mikelord @thejoshuablog. We will cover this monday: http://bit.ly/3pqS7M. But follow @joetrippi for what can be done on-line. about 2 hours ago from web

The embedded link goes to the Vancouver Sun hit piece posted earlier to FR

Over at Twitter, the leftists are all in a hypocritical lather over FR.

David Shuster is on sometime mid-afternoon East Coast time Monday-Friday.

To commemorate this thread and the discussions, I think I’ll fix pancakes for breakfast, with lots of Aunt Jemima syrup on them! Yum

Honestly, if those were FReepers and not covert leftists making those comments a mea culpa is in order for some of those things. It will make defense of the things that are legit here easier in the long run.

Someone says something I find offensive, why, I do something astounding: I STOP READING THE POST.

Yes, that is astounding. Astoundingly passive. Apparently you don't care how the community you are a part of conducts itself and is viewed. I do. It's called "taking responsibility". You should try it. Instead of just walking away when you see something offensive being said by a fellow member of a community of which you are a member, you should have the courage to speak up. If you don't, you will be tarred as complicit.

‘I raise Shih tzu dogs. I have a pack of 5 & they just love pancakes.’

Do the black ones (or mixed) enjoy pancakes more so than the others?

I must admit. I have enjoyed this thread. Posters (on the most part) have expressed their views and feelings without stooping to racism, name calling and vitriol.

See how easy it is to get your point across without old worn out stereotypes.

Then you have no cause for complaint when racist posts on FR are publicized in the media. You are one of those who create an atmosphere where such things are accepted.

"You are one of those who create an atmosphere where such things are accepted." I beg to differ. I am one who believes free expression is an unalienable RIGHT grated by the Constitution of the United States. I understand YOU might find that uncomfortable. Being so into control, and all.

If Palin’s kids are fair game so are Obama’s.

The only thin I have to say on the topic is as follow: It is a shame that the Obamas are using their delightful children as cheap, unsuspecting propaganda tools a la the the Kremlin/KGB of yore.

Considering that Obama was negotiating our, as well as Poland’s and Czeck’s, defense superiority away this past week, the t-shirt, that the Obama’s purchased for their delightful 11 year old daughter was obviously a political statement. From that POV, I do feel strongly about the Obamas purposefully using their child as a cheap political tool.

‘It didn’t take me long to filter posts WITHOUT bothering mods. Someone says something I find offensive, why, I do something astounding: I STOP READING THE POST.’

In the 1930’s good people did the same thing. Just turned their heads and stopped looking.

When they, again, turned their heads, millions of people were dead.

Some of the best internet trolls are the older ones, the ones that fly under the radar. Longevity means nothing except you are a really good troll. There are actually forums on the internet that tell people how to be good trolls. Since saquin seems hell bent on trying to make FR look bad when it’s not, I have to wonder.

Yep. Now we're into "reaping consequences". No more pretending to take the high road, eh? No more phoney indignation at what you have determined to be "racist" dialog. Now we're down to the TRUE LEFTIST nitty gritty. "DO AS YOU ARE TOLD OR REAP THE CONSEQUENCES.

No. Neighbors to the camps (as they were forced to help with the burials) claimed that they did not know what was ‘going on’ next door to them.

It is what it is. We all have to live with the consequences of our actions. If your response to things that are offensive is to just walk away, that’s your prerogative. Personally, I find it cowardly. But you’re free to live your life as you want. As I said, we all bear the consequences or our actions.

Sorry, but the only Camp around here is a Boy Scout camp. And they seem perfectly safe. At least for the moment.

Indeed. We all DO bear the consequences of OUR own actions. My choice is to accept that FREE Americans have the right granted to them by our Constitution to openly express their views.

Obviously, we do not have that in common. But many thousands have given their lives for that principle, that belief.

Such a pity you find it cowardly.

Sneaky trolls will sometimes pose as people who are genuinely interested in the topic before posting a message that undermines the discussion. This is common in political forums — a person with opposing views might pretend to be sympathetic to other members in the community while simultaneously posting messages and threads that criticize their point of view. For example, the troll might say, “I really like Politician X, but do you think she’s really strong on domestic policy?” The goal of this troll is to foment doubt within the community at large
