Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Feb 2, 2013, 01:40 AM

It's here! It's here!

The Tea Party's answer to Facebook. Because the FB Nazis take down their racist, ignorant posts (sometimes). I'll call the waaaahmbulance. Let's go over there and make them feel welcome.

Or not.

2. Wouldn't it be funny if

they got sued by FB for some kind of copyright or patent violation?

And thanks for the warning even though I don't do FB or Twitter.

8. Looks as if you can use FB to log in.

And as I look at it, it has passed a copyright check.

I'm going to keep looking into this.

copyright on all kinds of things they don't have a real copyright for. We'll see I guess.

12. There seems to be a FB page for this and they are talking about this.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tea-Party-Community-Social-Media/462312733804830


It seems to just have launched this last Thursday.

Still researching.

Add: They are talking about the new site on it.

Add 2: the launch was said to have been on Thursday. However the Huffpost is saying Saturday.
See Story at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/01/tea-party-community_n_2598171.html

Still researching.

24. "Patriotic Media" - ?????

There is a Patriot Media. http://www.patriotmediainc.com/

I'm not the only one who is wondering, LOL. https://www.teapartycommunity.com/blog/225/who-is-quot-patriotic-media-quot-who-runs-quot-tea-party-community-quot/comment/

For info, you don't have to sign up to the TPC to see the above "conversation" although you may need to be a FB user.

Then there's this. http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1878466/pg1 Of course, the explanation of GP is

Godlike Productions is a Conspiracy Forum. Discussion topics include UFOs, Conspiracy, Lunatic Fringe, Politics, Current Events, ...


Sounds about right.

11. Naaaah

I don't have much respect for trolls, and have no interest in hanging out on conservative sites. Best to leave well enough alone and let it collapse of its own stupidity.

14. I was tempted

But you're right.

My alter ego would have liked the Bible, NASCAR, guns, and family values.

13. Someone has asked the Q: I am trying to find the answer to.

"Who is "Patriotic Media?" Who runs "Tea Party Community"

https://www.teapartycommunity.com/blog/225/who-is-quot-patriotic-media-quot-who-runs-quot-tea-party-community-quot/comment/

I have also hit the "About" button and they really don't give answers.

And I have googled the news in hopes I can find a retort from FB, but there is nothing at this time.
I am so going to keep an eye on this. I can not believe that Facebook will not say or do something about this.

18. That is what I am trying to find out.

Did read this Disclaimer that just popped up under the sign in area.
DISCLAIMER: Tea Party Community is not associated or affiliated with Facebook© or Facebook.com.


They are "Powered by Patriotic Media". But I can't find anything about them.

It also says on the "About US" page that they are:
"family owned and operated by Conservative Christians, who believe God, Family and Country come before all else.



Still researching.

26. Good on ya for your detective work..

The sponsorship of the site is conspicuous by its absence, and that raises some red flags for me.

That probably includes the law, the constitution and copyright.

I don't see Facebook will not do something about how much it looks like them.

27. Interesting...

I keep trying to ge t back on the login page but all I keep getting is:

This page can't be displayed

•Make sure the web address https://www.teapartycommunity.com is correct.
•Look for the page with your search engine.
•Refresh the page in a few minutes.
•Make sure TLS and SSL protocols are enabled. Go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Settings > Security



Could anyone else please see if you can get there?
If not, we may have FB's answer to this look alike.
