"Fuck NAFTA asshole Bill Clinton"
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 04:22 PM by denem
No, NOT my comment, merely the last of thousands of pithy pejoratives thrown into 'Clinton' threads, almost any Bill Clinton thread. It's Pavlovian.

If Bill ate a BLT sandwich, we would criticism his speaking tours for bringing home the bacon.

The OP comment is from a thread (not here) Clinton lobbying the Senate Democratic Caucus, spelling out to them the politics in 2010 and beyond if Health Reform dies in the Senate.

1. DU shouldn't be bashing Clinton, Obama or Kucinich the way many do.

3. Fact is that Clinton furthered Republican policies in a way that Republicans couldn't do themselves

And made the country a LOT worse off in the process.

14. Yes, Clinton was mistaken to support NAFTA
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 09:36 PM by blue_onyx
Clinton, however, passed NAFTA with the help of Democrats such as Kennedy, Kerry, and VP Biden. Other Democrats don't seem to get criticism for their support of NAFTA.

2. Each of us is remembered by those things we do in our life
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 03:56 PM by DJ13
Bill did some things that will forever mark him as far from the kind of President he could have been if he had remained liberal once in office.

8. Except, there's nothing cynical about it.
Once in a while, I am revolted by visceral hate. Clinton is going to the senate to talk the Real Politik. So? So lets flick the switch to bile and venom. Enough.

6. No. It was the comment that was offensive - tawdry, and foul
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 04:29 PM by denem
in the way that hatered finds natural expression. And no, not misleading: It's in quotes, a OP about knee jerk bile that floods Free Republic. No better than FReepers? You tell me.

7. You've never seen anyone say "Fuck Obama" around here? I have.
Or is that OK because they reserve the right to criticize the President?

:eyes:

9. HA! You know, I wish we could search "Fuck (name)"
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 04:51 PM by denem
and get the number of hits for DU, then create a comparison table.

My guess: Democrats rule the top ten.

My point - Clinton is stumping for health care so Fuck NAFTA asshole Bill. It's that Freeper archetype jump that perhaps only visceral hatred makes natural, at least for the barely sane.

10. Summary: This OP is about knee jerk bile. Think Free Republic
Tawdry, foul, hate drenched outbursts that have NOTHING to do with the subject matter at hand. It's Pavlovian and so pervasive it's hardly even noticed. Once in a while, revulsion get the better of me.

End.

13. To anybody who talks like that about Clinton, Obama, me or you
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 05:08 PM by CreekDog
if i'm undecided on that issue and you make that argument (with the swearing and over the top name-calling), i start siding against you.

and spite is a mighty powerful weapon! :D
