Free Republic is in full meltdown mode.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2877089/posts

Posters being banned left and right, long-time posters asking for their accounts to be deleted...it's schadenfreude time!

The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads.
-----------------
A LOT of people aren’t welcomed here any more. That hurts donations significantly.
-----------------
That's the fact of it...many long-time freepers do not feel "free" to discuss. I believe that the pendulum will swing back but in the mean-time FR will lose good people.
-----------------
You’re kidding, right? Ask all the people who have been run off over a simple difference of opinion if free discussion takes place here.
-----------------
This is the first thread where people have finally spoken up. I'm sure it will lead to another mass purge.
-----------------
Freepers, be on alert. Your freepmail is not private here.
-----------------
Jim (and others) continue to insult fellow conservative just because we now support the Republican nominee and he wonders why this freeperthon is going poor.
-----------------
I request to be immediately unsubscribed from Free Republic (or “zotted” or whatever you want to call it). Goodbye, Free Republic. It was nice to know you while it lasted.
-----------------
bye
-----------------
I used to be a dollar a day donor....no more
-----------------
Jim, your resistance is falling apart due to desertions and summary executions. And you have nobody to blame but yourself. Why anyone of even moderate intelligence would want to be a part of this anymore is beyond me. I do not. Please disable my account.

3. The Freeber site owner doesn't like Romney.

And as is usual for the extreme right-wing, he REALLY doesn't like people who disagree with him...

Lol.

It is an excellent representation of the right-wing if you ask me. Anyone "left" of you is your enemy and a damned "librul".

I think you could condense your comment to the fact that our elected officials all have serious ties to the finance sector.
As Mussolini accurately noted:

40. Except that it's not quite the case; politicians' sources of support vary. Some get most

 

of their support from e.g. the corporate sector or specific sectors within it (e.g. pharma, ag). Some (like John Edwards) get big chunks of their funding from specific lobbies (e.g. trial lawyers, doctors, teachers).

Not saying there are politicians untouched by finance; just saying that some are more touched than others.

11. Basically a metric ton of Freepers got zotted (their version of tombstoning) for supporting Romney

And not even for saying "I think this guy would be a great President" or "I agree with him on X, Y, and Z" but for, you know, pointing out that Romney is their only chance of unseating Obama.

43. After reading three pages

of those comments, I don't believe that any derangement syndrome is necessary. Dem folks is just plain doofy! I got a mental picture of a lot of folks sitting around, fingers flipping their lips and going "Wubba-wubba."



Much talk of "standing on principles".... but the principles being stood upon are indicative of brains that have been subjected to too much FOX News and too many paint chip sandwiches over the years.



I did find it rather amusing that the ninnies who post (and in some cases apparently live) there are not pleased with the owner's policy vis-a-vis Mittens, as well as the reaction to it. Ah, well, the Almighty Free Market hath spoken! Suck it up, morans.

I made it all of three days before I couldn't take the craziness anymore and outed myself. It was actually kinda fun, since they didn't "zot" me right away but I was able to argue and discuss with some of them for a bit, which was interesting. Don't think I changed any minds, though.

13. JR has been on a "cultural revolution" banning people for stuff like supporting Mitt

Basically he has laid down the law that nobody can support either Presidential candidate without getting banned.....and he is EXTREMELY rude and vibey about it (calling them "homosexualists" and other FR nonsense words.) Lots of people banned or pissed off and left from all of this, then they wonder why no $$ is coming in.

87. No cookie

 

The sites Democratic Underground and I gotta respect that but the definition I gave was an honest one and it was right from the dictionary next to the word "liberal".

I'm pretty certain I'm voting for Romney.

Does that mean I'm getting "zotted"?

No grudges if so.

And no sneakiness on my part.

Good point about the puppet masters but why do you think they limit themselves to the GOP?

Tim Geithner started off with what firm (OK Kissinger Associates) was appointed President of the New York Federal Reserve Bnak by what president (hint you hate him), and was named Secretary of Treasury by whom (hint you love him)?

and the continuation of some Bush policies (which you'll notice if you read around on DU), but you've got to look at the facts and the bigger picture.

A return to Bush Era economic policies won't help anyone except the 1%.

109. You sound very reasonable.

Hope you stick around so you can engage in our conversation here. You can't be promoting Romney here for obvious reasons, but you can discuss issues that effect all of us. Here's the thing. Maybe 40 years ago, Republicans had a broad representation of different political views. Legislation in Congress got passed by coalitions of like minded Republicans and Democrats. Today's Republican Party is sick - it's sort of like FR...it allows only a conservative dogmatic fidelity and it's got no ideas or vision to deal with the structural issues facing this country. All they want to do is either obstruct the Democratic agenda or. worse, implement a psuedo-religious agenda that caters to the very well off while creating social conflicts in our society. Please focus on what's happening in Michigan and understand that the Republican endgame is to create the same 1 Party rule for the rest of this country.

I don't think my microsoft security essentials have a direct tie-in to my browser like your AVG (But 'does' have an active system monitor - which seems to to it's job) and it is good you're not taking any chances. Most of all the infected systems i have encountered are from owners who's online habits could be described as.... questionable, or for the rest, people that barely have any business being behind a keyboard....lol, bless their hearts!

i know... microsoft... ha!
thing is, microsoft has a vested interest in handing out for free a well functioning threat scanner, since half of the threats out there are used to bring down microsoft servers, or are trojans that attract other outside bugs that do the same. so it benefits them to give out a free product. a little leary about the motivations of other 'freebie-antimalware' out there. i mean, what future incentive does an outfit like that have?? out of the goodness of their hearts??

It's all about Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, any extremist. An opinion about acceptance of any position that the extremists subscribed to has become unacceptable, it seems. I think hte posters themselves can ban anyone.

Can you imagine who would be left at DU if individual posters could ban anyone they felt like banning?

Social security office wants nothing to do with them, greeters at Walmart don't see them, concubines could care less, Peta approves of the beachings, many of their boats have been turned around at the DU shore, DU immigration officers are no doubt at the top of their game. Your mileage may vary, tax tag and title not included.

170. I must be missing something

 

My observations
People seem rather excited about what is going on at FR which is fine I guess but people need to take a look in the mirror first.

Both DU and FR are highly partisan sites
Both Site Owners have strict rules on what can and cannot be posted.
Both sites have factions within the sites that support each other too.
Both site ban posters who do not conform.

In reality there is not much difference between the two sites but if it makes one feel good mocking them, go for it...but it won't change anything nor get people jobs or medical care or a home but hey you will feel so much better mocking them!

If you had been here during the primary wars you would have know it got pretty hot around here. Downright ugly at times. But when it was over, it was over. We came together and supported the Democratic nominee. The freepers are busy tearing eachother to shreds since the primaries started - this is just the culmination of people who are so gosh darned convinced they are right and everybody else in the country is wrong.
