Freepers Are Truly Disgusting Pieces of Filth
That's my wisdom of the day.

But, honestly. How did they get that way? A genetic mistake?

1. mostly racism I think
their hate of anything non-white allows them to justify just about anything.

2. Don't respond to them - please hit alert
They are sick people looking for attention. Deny them attention. Don't respond to their posts.

Simply hit the alert button at the bottom left of the offending post and the mods will take care of it.

Meanwhile, by not responding we let the thread sink to the bottom of the page where it belongs until it is zapped.

3. It's not genetic,
it happens when they are very young though.

their mothers should have taken in their mouths.

Sorry to be so crude.

My #1 favourite personal profile comment here at DU is: "Barbara should have swallowed." I forget the member's handle, but she wasn't afraid to put it in her profile. (I love New Yorkers)

5. Made me think of a great old quip
Liberals are fearless, confident of humanity, outgoing and optimistic, because they believe most people are pretty much like themselves.

Conservatives (Freepers) are fearful, mistrusting, angry, bitter and afraid because they, too, believe most people are pretty much like themselves.

16. What I find all too funny...
And I may give away myself, because I do visit Free Republic occasionaly, but what the hell:

What I find totally funny is a freeper would have the same exact thinking (only reversed) that you have.

The right tend to think of the left as "victims, powerless, mistrusting, angry, bitter, paranoid."

The left think the same about the right.

Eventually the two will cancel each other out, and the moderates with their common sense will take over.


I'll be perfectly honest...and again, this might get me zapped... and again I've been lurking on Free Republic longer than on DU...

But it *APPEARS* that Free Republic people take longer strides to oust the fringe on their side than DU does on their side.

Or to put another way... (and again, this is just observation on my part, I haven't done any number crunching)... I'm more likely to find the lunatic fringe on DU than I am on Free Republic. I saw thread after thread on DU how Kerry was going to be magically inagurated on Jan. 20th, even after he was defeated in the general election, even after he was defeated in the Electoral College, even after the Congress certified the EC's vote on the 6th. I'm just a run of the mill guy, and that's pretty damn loopy to me.

In contrast -- I see threads all the time where comments were deleted by moderators because they were (I assume) "hate speech", racist, or didn't fit in with the principles of Free Republic. And you can post a "I hate Sean Hannity/Rush Limbaugh/whomever" thread and have 100 posts agree with you (and another 100 disagree).

I'm not going to say Free Republic is balanced. I'm not even going to say it's more genial than DU (both websites have *A LOT* of hate)... but DU would do itself a service if it separated itself from the fringe.

Because... again... I'm saying this as a moderate, regular guy, from a Blue State (Washington) some of y'all are pretty damn loopy.

20. Unbrilliant!
Also, completely inaccurate. Your analytical abilities leave much to be desired.

9. They rot from the inside.
I can't explain it beyond a self loathing that denies them the capacity for humane compassion.

No doubt you were just appalled by a post that has thankfully been removed.

12. They are victims
Of powerful, modern marketing techniques and years of paranoia-inspiring propaganda.

Our world of "modern wonders" is more stressful than some people can handle. This makes them extremely vulnerable to messages that promise a return to simplicity. The same fear of a rapidly changing system of social values were core to the creation of the Klan; only this time they have a harder time mentally pinpointing a target to hate.

17. You guys are so intellectual
The freepers are a bunch of Bushies still hoping for spots on his kids T Ball court. Don't try to find depth. It's not there.

18. Freepers are bunch of redneck racist bible thumping Bla Bla Bla
Look at the FreeRepublic as a resource. Divisions within Freepers are divisions in the Republican party.

For example...FREEPER immigration threads turn into the biggest fights ever. This should clue Democrats in on the achilles heel of the current administration. George Bush's open border policy is driving his republican base insane

Start a thread on FreeRepublic bashing Bush on immigration and see for yourself what I'm talking about.

If Democrats would start listening to what is really going on with the other side...they might just find a way to DIVIDE AND CONQUER
