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.

SandRat, you seem confused about the nature of Free Republic if you want to ban conservatives like Ron Paul. As the article noted, “Free Republic is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-small government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty site.” Ron Paul is also well known as a pro-life, pro-gun, pro-small government, pro-constitution, and pro-liberty advocate. If you want conservatives banned because they don’t share liberal foreign policy views that the Founders would find anathema (such as trying to do to other countries what liberals do to our own cities), you are at the wrong site IMHO.

Poor spellers and lousy grammarians who post here is that which concerns me.

I've never understood how people can call themselves Conservatives and even consider Romney anyway.

It should come down to, "Romney's an abortionist, cross him off my list, which candidate should I look into next". Even considering Romney is admitting that you don't think what's right is more important than what's the easiest.

“athists and non-Christians that post here”

More importantly, what about the athist (sic) and non-Christian TROLLS that post here, with taglines that are FALSE, misleading people into pointless arguments with you, which is the definition of trollery?

Re your tagline.

Being athist (sic) and non-Christian is one thing. Being an athist (sic) and non-Christian troll is something else entirely...

If by some slim chance Romney gets the nomination, what will we talk about with reference to the election? Will we still be able to express our hatred of Mormonism, at least?

But where would we get our “doper news” and all the discussions that go with that topic ~ remember, no Ron Paul supporters and we are left with no one who would recognize that the Cain cigarette ad featured a handrolled spiffy! (well, except for me ~ I noticed that ~ as did NPR).

I agree that Romney is unacceptable.

I don’t have an opinion one way or another on banning Romney supporters other than it’s Jim Robinson’s site and he can do want he wants with it.
.
It’s not a government or publicly supported site.

He has the right to invite or uninvite whoever he wants to his internet meeting hall.

The Democrats are who they are, the GOP establishment is the wolf in sheeps clothing. They have submarined us forever and I am through with them. If Mittens is the nominee it will be the end of the Republican party. By 2014 the Tea Party will out-number the Repubs by a large margin. Focus group that Karl Rove.

You've needed a "ZOT" for a long time. You are an a "community agitator" just like Obama.

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

Ditto!

The religious bigotry meme the lamestreams and commenters are spouting, especially on the Politico story, about Jim and this site being against him for his religion are insidious
and craven. A good, solid core conservative is good, no matter his religion, and they’re welcome here. Any depiction of a site policy of religious bigotry here is an outright lie.

You only have to look at his documented lack of core principles, character and his flipfloppery to get the message: HE’S NOT A RELIABLE, SOLID CORE CONSERVATIVE !
