  • Not so ‘Free Republic’: The Shot Heard Around the Net

    asgardshill to Jim Robinson; Howlin; bmwcyle; MeekOneGOP; Grampa Dave; Coop; RasterMaster; patriciaruth
    Well well well, what have we here? I poke my head in after one of your out-of-control moderators “punishes” me on December 22 for defending my views within the rules in a thread, and what do I find? Freepers getting fired from their real-world jobs for being backstabbing liars, Kim Jong-Ilish purges by you of those who you disagree with and want to silence, private Freepmail getting reprinted in the Washington Post. Sure looks like its all slipping away from you, Jim. Sorry about that ;)

    It really is a uniquely circular and closed little world you run here, Jim. Newbies who find your web site and want to participate are bound by a very specific (and unwritten) set of rules: “Don’t express your opinion on controversial topics or you’ll be banned”, “Don’t post on certain threads or you’ll be banned”, “Shut up and accept and loudly agree with anything you see posted by an old hand and/or Howlin or you’ll be banned”, “Do not presume to question an old hand and/or Howlin or you’ll be banned”, “Besides Jim Robinson, Howlin is your god and don’t you ever forget it or you’ll be banned”. I think you get the idea.

    Your ridiculous justification of your silencing of William Gheen and banning of material from Alipac because a few disruptors sometimes post racist material there is laughable. Considering that some Freepers can and do routinely refer to non-terrorist Muslims as “sand niggers” “Islamokazis”, and other despicably childish names with no fear of banning or punishment, this pathetic intellectual fig leaf you wear is the lowest sort of hypocrisy. Not to mention the Terri Schiavo fanatics you egg on who are conducting a real high-tech lynching of a grieving husband whose only "sin" is trying to stop his stricken wife's pain as she requested.

    Nazi sympathizers, racists (as long as it is white-on-black racism of course), and even those who advocate the shooting of people they don’t like all have a voice and a home on FreeRepublic, just as long as they are not newbies.

    How much do you want to bet that this poster will remain in good standing on FreeRepublic?:

    “Meanwhile, I am just waiting on Federal Hunting Licensing for US citizens to police the borders. A good plan would include bounty and no bag limit …”

    You have the right under the law to ban whomever you please from your site, Jim. But you obviously know by now that doing so does not mean that those you ban are simply going to shut up and go away. When you and your out-of-control moderators ban people then your indoctrinated flying monkeys such as MeekOneGOP, bmwcyle, Howlin, Grampa Dave, and Coop treat them rudely and offensively and post funny kitty pictures as sport, you should know by now that bad karma is its own punishment. And as people like Joseph Steffen have discovered to their detriment and pain, those who you and your harpies drive off from your site will not simply sit down, shut up, and take it. And no amount of foot-stamping and chin-quivering on your part will change these facts.

    A piece of parting advice (for I am gone and will not stick around to accept the abuse that will surely come raining down on me for posting this from what has become the North Korea of the Internet): Rein in your flying monkeys soon Jim, before they literally become you. I know that you don’t routinely nuke accounts in order to pad your statistics, but I am hoping you will make an exception in my case.

    (Jim Robinson talking about George W. Bush)

    “Well, by God, if you people insist on electing another cokehead as President, you damned well better throw open all the prison cell doors and free every man, woman, and child you're holding on drug charges. And if you're gonna elect another drug felon as President, you'd better rescind each and every one of your unconstitutional drug laws now on the books, including all of your unconstitutional search and seizure laws, and your asset forfeiture laws, and your laws that enable your unconstitutional snooping into our bank accounts and cash transactions. Well, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. You people are sick! Conservatives my ass. You people are nothing but a bunch of non-thinking hypocrits! You're a shame and a disgrace to the Republic! And, I, for one, am tired of taking orders from cokeheads and felons! Elect another one and I'll tell you what. I'll be ready for war! It'll be time to take up arms and run the filthy lying bastards out!”

    “Bush is so clever that he's got all the right-wingers thinking he's a liberal. And this strategy is just to garner the swing voters who tend to be lefties. But there's more of them than there are right-wingers so it's a good gamble. Then after he wins the Presidency then he's gonna make a major swing back to the right (he is a conservative, after all), laugh at his liberal supporters and welcome the right-wing back into his compassionate conservative fold. He's so clever that he's just about the first guy on the planet to manage fooling all the people all the time.”

    Do us all a favor and ban yourself, Jim.

    I can see that the mods are apparently going to continue to let you break the site rules, so I have no problem with replying to this.

    What part of DO NOT POST TO ME AGAIN are you having trouble understanding?

    Yes, that's what our troops do. They just allow stuff to happen. Why don't you educate us, Great One, as to how you would have handled this situation?

    Maybe NOT LET PEOPLE WEARING EXPLOSIVE BELTS ANYWHERE NEAR THE PERIMETER OF THE BASE? The facts on this are still coming out - I would suggest that you let them before jumping down other poster's throats.

    And I'm sure in short order you'll have blamed this on Sec. Rumsfeld.

    And I'm sure in short order that you'd once again prove yourself a short-fused idiot. Looks like I was right.

    Even the famous restaurant in Amarillo TX that offers a $50 steak for free if you can finish it in under an hour can't beat this. The steak is only 72 oz.

    One more thing. That Hollywood Bowl on the seal - has anyone verified that it was built using union labor? Unions were persecuted and vilified back in the 1920s when it was built, and you can't have the result of slave scab labor on California's seal.

    No fish or cow can be allowed either. Cows flatulate ozone layer-killing methane, and fish have feelings too. Might offend the vegetarians.

    And the woman on the seal - do those sexists think that women were put on the Earth only to bring food to and cater to the every whim of men?

    Somebody needs to get that sailing ship off of there. Evil white invaders used ships just like that to bring oppression and smallpox to the Native American tribes.

    In my experience, only RATs find it necessary to namecall. I think you are suffering a relapse.

    So some homicidal maniac was just allowed to waltz into a US military mess hall. Lovely.

    There really is nobody left who could possibly give a hoot about the contents of my email box. But I think I'll still add a codicil to my will that said contents (as well as my hard drive) should just be allowed to vanish into thin air.

    The coyotes must be Platte County Animal Board District coyotes.

    I think "American_Pigs" was the same poster as the now-banned "American_Pig" mentioned in this post.

    I see that our Australian "friend" is back. Or rather, was back.

    I was the executor of my mother's estate several years ago. And I believe (but cannot confirm) that Yahoo!'s publicly-stated policy on the contents of email boxes is that they get zapped when they receive documentation that the boxholder has died. IANAL and YMMV.

    Actually, the easiest out for Yahoo is to have someone "leak" the mailbox contents to the family. Blame it on a rogue staffer who has been "punished" (3 lashes with a wet noodle) and be done with it.

    That would still expose Yahoo! to tremendous legal liability if the family were offended by the contents of the box and decided to sue them.

    This is a tough one.
