Jim Robinson: By the way, if they are truly conservative or Republican as you claim, how would my action on FR have any bearing whatsoever on whether or not they continue promoting conservative causes or voting Republican? Are you saying that if I don't agree with them they are going to renounce their beliefs in conservative ideals? Wow! Sounds like these scientists are pretty thin skinned and short sighted (or really not conservative at all).
I see nothing reassuring in there that--Get ready! Here comes a breathtaker!--the War on Those Not at War on Science here on FR is not real. Then there's this:
Well, I'm not particularly interested in attracting Godless Marxists to FR. And I sincerely doubt they're really interested in helping us in reach our goals.
On a crevo thread, I'd jump on something like that for a strawman bait-and-switch copout.
We have a disconnect between two claims for what FR even is. One is "FR, the premier website of conservatism." So it seems WE'RE going to roll back decades of gummint largesse and make the country safe for freedom. Seems clear. We're gonna do great stuff. With OUR money, and whose else?
The other is "FR, JR's personal website to do as he damn well pleases therewith including if he so desires spread the news that the theory of evolution is a socialist conspiracy." Got it. "MY freedom of association! MY property! MINE! MINE!"
Yours, yes. No site can be the first thing, the premier website of conservatism, for me if it's the second thing for you. You and your site are fired.
