Conservatives Launch ReaganBook: 'Facebook For Patriots'

Source: TPM

By CAITLIN MACNEAL Published JULY 29, 2014, 1:17 PM EDT

The president of conservative pro-family group Faith2Action last weekend announced the pre-launch of ReaganBook, a social networking site described as "the Facebook for patriots," according to Right Wing Watch.

Faith2Action President Janet Porter told attendees at the Ohio Liberty Coalition's "Reload 4 Liberty" event that Facebook has been censoring people like anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera.

Porter lamented that "while tomorrow Facebook employees are gathering to go march at the gay pride parade in San Francisco," they are censoring people with "unpopular opinions."

She then described ReaganBook as a social network that tears down walls like President Reagan. “We’re tearing down walls of tyranny and censorship," she said.

1. Well, at least Facebook won't be as polluted with right wing trash,

IF this site were a legit competitor.

7. It's off to a roaring start....

ReaganBook, now at 36 members, welcomes all individuals to "connect and share freely."


I'll bet they will be up to at least 48 members by sun down this evening.

Now that would have been a definite draw for right wingers.

...raised taxes?

...raised the Debt Limit 18 times?

...passed immigration reform?

...let our troops get attacked in Lebanon?

...appointed a liberal like Sandra Day O'Connor to the Supreme Court?

Any time some dimwitted "conservative" babbles about Reagen I hit them with the exact list you posted ...

Results in either dead silence or enragement ...

5. Is being demented one of the requirements to join?

 

Although it could be an advantage ... people wearing diapers can stay online longer because they don't need bathroom breaks. Moreover, loss of memory means your old friends are new friends every day. Such a website will be a great tribute to Reagan.



Note: This is in no way intended to hurt Alzheimer's and other dementia patients or their loved ones. As a neurologist, I know their suffering too well. This is just macabre humor making fun of Reagan only.

11. I'd rather give up Florida

Texas and Arizona are too critical to America's transportation infrastructure, as is South Carolina (the other oft-mentioned "new Republican country", because ceding either of them would fuck up east-west transit along I-10 and I-40, and ceding Texas would also cede the Laredo, Hidalgo and El Paso border crossing points - and Laredo is the largest and most important point of entry for road freight in the United States.

Drop the Port of Miami out of our transportation infrastructure, and we have many other ports that can pick up the slack.

41. Or Somalia

Somalia is the libertarian paradise: no government, all the guns you want, it's perfect.

Well, almost: there is the real small part about people getting dragged out of their beds in the middle of the night and never seen again, or their heads found in different cities from their bodies. But other than that, they'll love it.

Reagan looks less dead in this pic than when he was in office. There were piss stains on all the chairs when he left office and closet full of diapers.

their religion and ideas involve terrorism. They already have a pick and choose bible used for war.
Just call your new site Reganshit, that would best describe it.

22. They ought to call it FEEBLE BOOK

I mean this fuckn' FEEBLE WART goes and hires a Wall Streeter to run the Treasury. Good-Bye fair wages, Good-Bye Union Representation. Now you can go buy your $30-40,000 cars from people making them for $8-10.00 an hour in Mississippi, South Carolina and Mexico. Is it any wonder they are ALL on recall? Hear about the Honda transmissions, Nissan engines and God only knows, I lost track of how many Toyota recalls they've had. Not to mention the Big Three here. GOOD THINGS NO CHEAP. CHEAP THINGS NO GOOD....This guy DESTOYED this country. I was making way more money before these ReTHUGlicans got their hands on everyone's money. But oh watch your guns and fetuses while we take away your wages. Don't look now.....!!
