I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you! At FreeRepublic.com!
I just can't believe they'd engage in such nasty, disruptive deeds as instigating (or following Rush Limbaugh's instructions--is that true?) a denial of service attack on DU.

Why, look at this portion of the guidelines for their own forum:

Purpose: The Free Republic forum is intended for Conservative users who wish to have a serious discussion about political events, conservative principles and the elimination of government corruption and abuse. This is a news and information site not a chat room. Please stay on topic. Free Republic is a supporter of free speech on the Internet but we believe that along with the privilege of free speech comes the responsibility to respect the rights of others.

Please remember to use courtesy when posting, refrain from personal attacks and do not use profane or obscene language. Your posts will be read by thousands of people and will be archived for years to come. Violation of these guidelines can cause your account to be suspended or revoked. Your Free Republic account cannot be used to engage in any illegal activity.


I suppose the FR users don't think their ethics, such as they are, must necessarily extend beyond their own borders. That's somewhat analogous to an American citizen crossing the border into Mexico and murdering with impunity.

Maybe it's just me. :shrug:

2. Most of the Freeps.............
would LOVE to go over the border and murder Mexicans. Their morals take a dive when it comes to the lives of people other than 'Murkins.

3. Are you joking, or did they REALLY launch a DOS attack against DU?
Isn't that illegal?

5. this like all things right wing
is another example of their hypocracy. Drug users are all bad, unless our guy gets caught then we pray for the hero who is trying to kick the habit...don't criticize the president during war...unless it is Clinton and the war is Kosivo, then it's OK...free speech is important....unless you are a liberal, etc. etc.

7. Does that mean that RimJob has deleted
Edited on Mon Dec-15-03 05:25 PM by Blue-Jay
the "piss on Carter's grave" thread?

No? I didn't think so.

Don't say it if you don't mean it, RimJob. I've seen violence advocated by your cabal posted daily at FR, yet you still allow it. Face it; both of our message boards have a fair share of people on the fringe (nutters, I really mean...) You point ours out, and we point yours out. It'll never end. I'll believe you when you start coming down on your own fringe element.

Here's a deal: I'll stop referring to Reagan as "The ol Pants-Crapper" when you stop comparing Senator Clinton to Adolph Hitler ("Hitlery"). Deal? No, I didn't think so.

Enjoy your new SUV that the Freepers paid for, m'man.

8. Doesn't shock or surprise me at all


That they would stoop to such childish behavior. These people think their beliefs entitle them to do whatever they want "in the name of the Lord" without any consequences whatsoever.

You can hardly blame them,their leaders have set quite an example for them. A *resident who lied to the nation in order to start an illegal war to further his finances along with a few friends and a loudmouth pill-popping panty-waist who hides behind a microphone and spouts garbage,who has yet to be arrested for his crimes.

I we wee to do the same to them,they would be demanding that the SS step in to put a stop to it.


What a bunch of lame asses!
