6. *rolls eyes* I'm just not affected by them anymore. They're just looking
to get us mad, and it simply doesn't work on me anymore. *shrug*

Although this: 'I'm predicting some mass suicides come January. Did I say "predict". I meant "hoping for".' was ridiculous. "Yeah, you're Democrats, SO DIE!!!!!"

:wtf:

15. That was a pretty lame attempt at freeper humor...
What really fascinates me is the hard on this guy has for Will Pitt.

What an amazing herd of unfortunate ejaculations these Freepers are. Where are all the anthropologists?

20. I went there because of that e-mail they sent you -- looking to...
...see if they had a thread about it. There is a ton of talk about us out there. I don't know if you've seen Three Amigos, but evidently we're their El Guapo.

18. Diagnosis: psychosis
I occasionally venture into freeper land, just to see what where their heads are at. It is usually a nauseating experience.

They assume we should be as selfish as they are. We should be happy just living the American dream despite the suffering we have imposed on the poor in this country and the rest of the world. Any complaining on our part about a mere fraudulent election is unjustified whining about cheaters. They think whistle blowing is tattling. They never learned what real morals are all about, believing it is about intolerance rather than tolerance.

They laugh at anyone's misery. They seem to have nothing much to think about, but spend their time just cracking jokes showing no understanding of what we are trying to do. I suppose it is their forum for that purpose, but they seem to enjoy it so much it is just sick.

If any of them are reading this, here is a clue about what motivates us. Yes, we feel pain over the apparent loss in this election, and yes we believe it could be different, and we strive to make a difference against all odds. But our pain is not just for ourselves, but for the world. We pity the poor, not to give them a handout, but to lend a helping hand. We don't pity the rich, who despise anyone who would deny them their tax break handouts.

You don't have to look far to see election fraud, but you have to look. We have seen enough statistical evidence of fraud to potentially overturn the election, but we do not have the legal control over the hard evidence to make the case indisputable. We have seen those who control the election process abuse it and cover up their abuse. And we see, but don't want to see, the prospect of being totally out of control politically, and this drives us to feeling out of control emotionally, sometimes.

We see the truth that the election was a fraud, but you do not. You are witnessing not our psychosis, but our many ways of dealing with your psychosis.

19. What a smarmy bunch
they have nothing better to do? Of course not, THEY don't have TONS of shit to plow through like we have...because we aren't busy RAPING the world, PLUNDERING the taxpayers' wealth to ENRICH our sorry selves and RUINING the environment like they are. Easy to be RICH when you DON'T HAVE A CONSCIENCE and DON'T MIND RIPPING EVERYONE ELSE OFF. LET'S GET THESE LYING, SADISTIC CORPORATE PIGS OUT OF OUR GOVERNMENT!

21. Wow! They sure spend lots of time...
degrading people, don't they? That's usually what ignorant people do for fun since they have nothing of substance to talk about. I guess I'd spend all of my free time demeaning and ridiculing if I was a CLUELESS, MISINFORMED IDIOT...thankfully, I have an important project I'm working on...

23. They are just vile
I've never encountered a more closed mind then those of freepers.

It's pointless to argue with stupidity or ignorance. The refusal to take off the rose colored glasses and see the world for what it is. A huge mess.

The masses have been bought and sold, Fox only reinforces their idiocy by stroking their egos and beliefs. Seeing them only as the Cash cow they are. (that until their jobs are outsourced)

Anyway it's too late to save any of them. Their truth will come, unfortunately it will have to be in some form of mass destruction to their own loved ones before they wake up to the stench that is Bush INC.

24. What a sad commentary
This site just makes me feel such pity for the ignorant, name calling brats who are on it that I cannot express in words the sorrow I feel for their abject refusal to accept others. What a dissillusioned bunch they are!

This is what the Chimp has done. It rests on his shoulders and no one else's. Life doesn't go on forever.

Edited on Tue Dec-28-04 02:47 PM by Straight Shooter
They definitely get squished here as soon as they're recognized, or they die of starvation. Nothing rotten on DU.

Hey, wee freeper!

edit: From now on I'll call them fraggots

27. The freepers need liberals....
without us they'd be sitting in the dark, sucking their thumbs. Their obsession with DU and any media figure that dares to report non-BushCo approved news (see OlbermannWatch) shows the pettiness of their tiny brains and the fear and hatred in their tiny hearts.

Yeah, we're just a bunch of hippie "moonbats." Keep believing it, freepers.

28. Hey, I found some common ground over there!
It was this quote:

"The thing that keeps jumping out at me in all of these du bumblings is: If we repukes, as they call us had the fix in, why didn't we do a better job of rigging the election?"

I think we're all wondering that, more and more.

29. Who cares what they think?
Just not interested in giving up my or your right to free speech for anyone, EVER! These boards are for debates, opinions, venting, and anything we want them to be, am I wrong? Their opinions are meaningless.

32. They believe we are all young and poor, otherwise we'd be like them...
This is another common thought I have seen there. Basically they believe that the older (and theoretically wiser) one becomes, they move from a liberal stance to a conservative stance. They believe that in practice conservatism is pragmatic, while liberalism is ethereal. Funny, the pattern in my life was exactly the opposite!

I have only become more liberal over time. I always thought when I was in my teens that "get yours" was a viable philosophy. Until I then actually had to support myself and "pull myself up by the bootstraps" and realized that those with money only wish to suppress those without, because as we all know there is only so much money and success to go around. In reality, hard work means nothing. If economics were a true motivating force, then I should definitely be a Repuke and support the "Conservative" fiscal ideals. However, I have been blessed with vision outside of myself, and I have a conscience!


Anyways, just another example of how ignorant they really are...

To: PJ-Comix
Does anyone have an idea about the appr. age of these DU'ers? They must be just barely old enough to vote. One said he was 17 a while back. They sound idiotic!
