Tea Party Community, Conservative Facebook Alternative, Set To Launch

Source: Huffingtonpost.com

Organizers of new social networking site The Tea Party Community have taken Facebook, eliminated the supposed liberal bullying, tossed in tens of thousands of conservatives and mixed it all together with a dash of conspiracy theory to create a new online hub, set to launch officially on Saturday.
<snip>
Crow claims that he and other conservatives have been targeted by Facebook and its liberal users simply for attempting to express their political point of view.

“Most of us are subjected to censorship on Facebook,” Crow told Fox News. “I’ve been suspended there as have many of my friends. You also absorb a lot of abuse from liberals.”

It must really suck when the damn liberals and their pesky 'facts' start raining on the NRA/AEI/Faux/ALEC/FreedumbWerks Parade of Propaganda and Idiocy.

That's right, retreat back into your cozy little fantasy world ... we won't miss you.

12. They're only comfortable in their little bubble

of Fox News viewers, Rush Limbaugh listeners, NY Post and Washington Times readers. If they get challenged with things like reality and/or facts, it makes them uncomfortable.

It's why so many Republicans were surprised when Romney lost, and lost big.

At least they'll all be in one place. It will be easier for the FBI and Secret Service to gather all the evidence for hate crimes.

These clowns that get suspended are probably to the right of your average paranoid survivalist.

Only two I can think of are a) threatening the president and b) posting pictures of tits. But complain about some teanag cretin who posts pictures of Obama eating watermelon and FB won't do a damned thing. Just more whining from the crybaby conservatives.

A distributed "million monkeys in a room" experiment. I think we'll find conclusively that they never produce Hamlet. In fact, they'll get dumber. Their stupidity will regress to complete randomness.

Or maybe it's a trial to see how many trolls can survive without anybody to troll. At the end, there will just be one big, fat, stupid, supertroll.

37. Poor babies can't deal with reality or diversity.

They are so far divorced from mainstream society that they think they need their own versions of mainstream non-political things like Wikipedia, and now FaceBook.

I guess next they'll have a "Tea Party Google" that only returns politically approved search results.

Hell, maybe they'll just set up alternative DNS servers and have their own internet.

don't realize they're the minority and weak minded at that.
They still buy the propaganda that we're a center right country and Obama used ACORN to steal the election. Their resource would be better spent on electric shock convulsive therapy. The truth gives then the vapors.
