GOP 'foot soldiers' taking over newspaper message boards
I frequent The Denver Post forums quite often so I am familiar with the general consensus of how the majority of people feel about health care reform on that forum, about 60% for and 40% against.

Today it is obvious these whackjob foot soldiers have taken over the board in order to sway public opinion. Dozens of new members all copying and pasting shit from right wing sites. I have a feeling this is probably happening to most of the countries similar forums. If you're so inclined please do the same in return.

2. Done, but it doesn't look good.
Haven't these "free marketk" supporters been watching what's happened to oil prices the last few years? God, we are doomed.

3. I have recently seen this in the Houston Chronicle.
I usually throw in a barb every now and then just to piss them off. The more thumbs down votes I get from the local right wing redneck contingent, the more successful I consider the post. My most recent effort can be found here. It's about midway down in the comments on that page under the user name Festus_Haggin.

5. What hateful comments. Maybe Texas should secede.
I have friends in that area and I'm shocked to see that side of them.

I blamed the heat, but I think it's the hate.

7. They've pretty much hijacked
our paper as well www.greeleytrib.com . The cut-and-pastes go on for pages, sometimes. The abject racism, especially about Hispanics and Obama, is nauseating. There are apparently several of them who do nothing else during the day, as they post all day every day. If I tried to respond at that level, I'd never get out of the house. And they are all very boastful of their parts in helping to shut down conversation in the healthcare events. It's discouraging to learn that this is happening elsewhere. Not surprising, but disappointing.
