HELP! I need your worst examples of Freeper hate.
I was perhaps not surprised, but definitely outraged, to find an article in my church bulletin this morning from a right-to-life group that included the following excerpts:

It was Sunday, April 25th, the day abortion supporters had chosen to make their march on the Mall. Scattered here and there were pro-life protestors who desired, albeit quietly, to make their presence known I doubt it was quietly, but this wasnt the worst of it. Read on:

One pro-life protester named Kristinn reported (on the FreeRepublic.com weblog) watching a priest quietly blessing the pro-abortion marchers. She said the response to the priest was nothing short of satanic It went on to detail the verbal abuse this priest supposedly suffered, according to Kristinn.

Setting aside the fact that FreakRepublic isnt a blog, and Kristinn isnt a she these are minor points I was appalled at the fact that my church would endorse a hate site like FR.

The article in question claimed that this particular incident shows the true colors of the pro-choice crowd. So Id like you to help me show the clergy of my church the true colors of FR, and particularly of Kristinn. Please either post or PM me examples with links to the most hateful, criminal things these monsters have published online.

Thanks in advance for your help.

2. No, I want stuff published on Freak Republic.
I want them to know what kind of site they're endorsing.

They'd never publish the address www.democraticunderground.com because lefties are so hateful and immoral. I want them to know it cuts the other way too.

3. Sorry
Just re-read your post.

Here's a link where they claim Fred Phelps is really a liberal Democrat:

5. Oh yeah, that guy.
He comes to Laramie periodically, since this is where Matt Shepard was murdered. He's truly a loon. I think his name is Fred Phelps.

6. Peaceful vigil
held weekly in the prewar buildup.... 5pm courthouse square.

Some folks would routinely drive by and threaten to runover people on the sidewalk - because they didn't support bush who was defending our "freedoms". (They never caught the irony that threatening to kill and maim people for voicing their opinions - was actually in direct juxtaposition to protecting or even valuing freedoms - nor that there threats were more threatening to domestic freedoms (eg those of Americans) than was Saddam - nor that what they advocated (they would also yell out that the vigil participants should be rounded up and put in jail - and/or rounded up and shot) was not that different than the behavior that they decried from Saddam.

8. More
I Googled for certain terms on Freak Republic.

The first was 'fags'.

Here's a nice little thread about the practice of 'fisting':

http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a3a397fd51cdb.htm

another:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/526265/posts

To: HAL9000
20 years ago I lived on Davis Island in Tamoa. A family from Lebanon moved in accross the street. We had a 4th of july party and invited the neighborhood as we always did and they came. I was friendly with the 70 year old Patriarch and asked him what the hell he was doing moving his family here at such an old age in his life. He told me he was tired of waking up each day wondering if this is the day he and his family and grandbabbies were going to war, if this is the day they were all going to die. Here his family were safe. He asked if I ever worried if this were the day my family and I were to perish? I laughed and said no. Precicely he said. This is why Bin Ladens family is here. I say round up each of his family members and take them to the families and survivors of the victims. Let them take their revenge. Let Bin Laden feel the pain these victims feel. Let the world know we are not a nation of liberal fags.

9. I hadn't been to Free Republic in a while, so I went last night.
If you click on any of the articles they have linked about the middle east, 9/11 commission, etc., you will see a lot of responses from freepers saying that the U.S. should drop a nuclear bomb on every country in the middle east, because the "Islamic world" has declared war on us.

It should be very eye-opening for your pastor, I would think.

10. Maybe find a new church?
I dunno, I would angry, too, if someone was "blessing" me without my say so.

But let me get this straight, an anonymous person posted something on the internet and the idiots at your church bulletin published it as the "truth"? I don't think you should even have to get examples of FR hate, all you need to do is point out that this is not a credible source.

20. Finding another church isn't an option right now.
For lots of reasons. So I intend to make a difference while I'm there. Anyone have the goods on Kristinn?

12. Thanks RatTerrier and yardwork for your tips.
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 04:03 PM by ClassWarrior
Definitely helpful. I guess I'll have to venture over there and do some research. I try to avoid that site. Do you know whether or not I can search on Kristinn's name to find his posts? Anyone know any particularly inflamatory post specifically from him?

ON EDIT: That last list is great, RT. Thanks.

For the record - yes, I share her regret. It is liberal vermin like the editors and reporters of the New York Slime that took what in 1950 was the greatest country on Earth, and turned it into a cesspit. To see them fragged by the feral children of their ideology would be sweet, sweet payback.

16. When that Iraqi wedding was massacred...
Some vile person at FR said something to the effect that this is what happens when you give subhuman monkeys guns. Anywhere else it would be shocking. At the Free Republic it's par for the course.

Anyway, the search should actually pop up here on a search of DU, as someone posted the link and the relevant quotes.

Even for freepers, there is lots of foul filth on threads about her.

26. I forgot to mention that the freepers talk about killing people a lot.
One day it will be John McCain, another day it will be Richard Clarke, then Sandy Berger, Kerry and Edwards are always on death lists.

Almost everyday you can find a post where some freeper says that so-and-so ought to be shot or blown up or killed in some way.

These posts rarely get moderated or deleted. It appears to be an acceptable part of the freeper culture.

29. This is my personal experience with Freeper hate.:
I attended a protest against the war in April 2003. It was sponsored by a church on the north end of Tacoma. I wore my Gulf War medals prominently displayed on my coat, and carried a sign reading "Thou Shall Not Kill", and "Blessed Are The Peacemakers".

I can't count how many middle fingers shot my way, along with shouts of "Nuke Eye-Wrack!". The ugliness and hatred of our detractors was palpable and frightening. I wondered several times if some nutjob rightwing gun freak would pop a shot our way. However, when a few of these "patriots" would slow down to yell something at us, I would simply smile at the armchair warriors and point to my medals. One guy pulled over to chew us out, and I simply suggested that he drive to his nearest Armed Forces recruiting office and sign up. He hemmed and hawed and then tore out of there. I don't think he took my advice, though.
