Has anyone gone over to Freeperville to see how they are reacting to the past couple of days?

I don't have the stomach to go there. Are any of them starting to have any doubts about Trump yet? Thanks in advance for anyone who has a cast iron stomach and took a look.

2. Trump threads have dropped dramatically

Crickets. Commenters seem to be just phoning it in. Makes me think that a lot of activity there might have been paid trolls, and now they have moved on to other messes.

11. Like since 2001, 90% of the GOP is paid trolls.

And the other 10% don’t want to be associated with the paid trolls.

3. Here and there one of them will drop a comment of support for the FORMER President, but one

can tell their hearts are not into it.

Lately, they've even had members be a bit militant in attacking Russian sympathizers and trolls. That was unexpected. Still, at least 40% see Zelensky as the Antichrist (next to President Biden, of course). Few now see Putin as the West's saviour...

4. Very little about tfg's legal losses, but lots of misunderstanding

About government and law. Lots of insults of ag james, if course. Cannon is the only judge who knows anything at all. Usual crap.

5. They're making a big deal out of the NY fraud case being a civil suit

as opposed to a criminal one. Apparently this is suppose to signify that James has "nothing" on him.

They think the full 11th circuit court would overturn the panel decision.

7. Some tRump bashing crept in but they have descended into vicious name calling. Lunacy is constant

Apparently if you are for Ukraine's freedom, you are a globohomo WEF-paid Bidenista stooge.

But if you are for Russia protecting their beloved Russian-speaking brothers in the Donbass by warring it all to hell, you are communist.

You are allowed to criticize tRump's "personnel" choices (Sessions, Barr, Gen Kelly, Gen Mathis) and some are even allowed to say that De Santis would be a better choice for 2024.

It’s over in a month.
This morning the recruitment centers in much of Russia were slammed
with crowds of young men wanting to sign up. Very hard to see. Really
young kids in crowds waiting to be admitted.
It didn’t have to be like this. Once we stopped sending weapons
Ukraine would lose. I blame Biden for the incredible loss of lives.
Meanwhile every single day the UKronazis shell a Donetsk civilian
center, bus stops, grocery stores, killing 15-20 innocent civilians
and kids.
War sucks for all of them. Just so we can keep our superpower
status. So so wrong.

Midterms? Biden is busily partnering with Putin to bust President
Trump’s Iran deal and blow up Trump’s mid east policy by the
midterms. The Make Russia Great Again crowd is cheering right along
while Brandon and Putin get that done.

There is one poster Malpearce who actually has good analysis on the war against Ukraine, if you tune out the domestic RW orientation.

16. Oh, for God's sake. They're STILL pushing that "eat the bugs" meme...

They're just plagiarizing 4Chan/8Chan/whatever the hell it's called now. Remember the moronic "NPC" meme? These assholes are the NPCs. Whatever Cucker Tarlson or WorldNutDaily tells them to say, they parrot it like robots...er...NPCs.

What's really funny about "MarMema" is how much they sound like a stereotypical hard-left "tankie" that you might find in fringe Dark Web spaces. In fact, it's so cartoonish that I wonder if it's a "bit", as the kids say.

I can't make heads or tails of "lodi90". That's some of the most incoherent Freeper word salad ever written...and that's really saying something!

9. Background is that Jim Robinson is ill and quarterly fundraising
Thu Sep 22, 2022, 09:36 PM
Sep 2022

Quarterly fundraising seems poised to fail for the first time that I can remember since they had the progress bar.

Jim Robinson has been seriously ill for some months now. Chris Robinson, a son I think, fills in and posts rah-rah fundraiser posts that don't have the same verve as JR's rah-rah fundraiser posts.

These two things are combined with the lunacies around anti-vax, J6 antifa/political prisoners, greatest-of-all-time tRump, and Putin's anti-globohomo war against Soros/WEF acolyte Zelensky.

It has a bit of a vibe of self-destructive cratering, given the illness, fundraising, and descent into lunacy with ad hominen attacks. We'll see how it goes.

$80K/quarter. For a really low tech message board. I could live on that.

Parler, Rumble, Gab, Telegram, Gettr.....
