Good morning everyone! I’m still disposing of old drums of toxic Free Republic waste, so bear with me on the topicality thing – because it’s always open season on stupid.
Before we get to the older stuff, though – Free Republic honcho Mike…er Jim Robinson posted a thread about a Daily Kos thread about a Free Republic thread.
I sense an imminent collapse of web punditry into a singularity.

Yesterday, theHalfrican posted a link to the Free Republic Website
where several of its regular members were bashing Malia Obama for
wearing a peace symbol t-shirt. The thread had several derogotary,
racist, and sexual remarks about Malia. It also included a picture of
Michelle Obama speaking to Malia that was accompanied with a racist
I wrote the media contact at Free Republic yesterday,
firstname.lastname@example.org, questioning the nature of the posters and
Hello. I am an independent writer developing a book
about the grassroots conservative movement online, of which your site,
Free Republic, is included as a primary online gathering place for
Could you please tell me how the owner of the site feels about posts like this one:
which conservatives who post regularly at the site make several racist
statements about the 11-year-old daughter of President Obama for
wearing a t-shirt adorned with a peace symbol? Remarks included the
“We’re being represented by a family of ghetto trash.” “Looks like a bunch of ghetto thugs. A stain on America.”
“Looks like a typical street whore.”
we now are sending the ghetto over to represent us. and if so who the
hell is that flea bag who looks to be dragged from the trash dumpster.”
“you could go down any ghetto right now and see exactly the same.”
you imagine what world leaders must be thinking seeing this kind of
street trash and that we paid for this kind of street ghetto trash to
go over there”
“the world must be laughing like mad right now at that we have this kind of street trash in our white house.”
“Wonder when she will have her first abortion.”
“sad isn’t it that we now have ghetto street trash over there representing us in Europe.”
“This disgusting display makes me more and more eager for the revolution.
make me sick… The whole family… mammy, pappy, the free loadin’
mammy-in-law, the misguided chillin’, and especially ‘lil cuz… This
is not the America I want representin’ my peeps.”
the thread includes a picture of Michelle Obama speaking to her
daughter with the caption, “To Entertain Her Daughter, Michelle Obama
Likes to Make Monkey Sounds.”
Before you dismiss this as only a
minority of posters at the site, out of 100 posts on that thread I
found only 1 that criticized such remarks. This is not the first time I
have seen such an exhibition of blatant racism at Free Republic by
members who regularly post there.
crap comments like that if the post was pulled, while KOS not only
keeps crap like that up, they encourage it.
It isn’t what was said, it is how the sites deal with it that shows the difference.
I do believe you’re right.
The thread at Freeperville wasrestored after being pulled “for review”.
Out of the mouths of babes…
been frequenting this site for years and have never seen that type of
stuff posted. Is this for real?
I agree Jim. The kids didn’t pick their commie pinko pansy of a father. Nor did they choose to be put into the spotlight.
But Obama/Soetoro is fair game and so is his witch of a wife.
Apparently, NoobRep has been frequenting FR for years, but with his monitor turned off.

ugly stereotype of Conservative racism true?
Is it? Good question. Let’s ask the other posters in this thread:
constantly about Children of other politicans…Kids should be off
limits! 100%. Watching the left and Media try to destroy Sarah Palin
and her children..Including an infant with special needs....
I don’t feel much pitty(sic) for some bad comments on a blog you can
CHOOSE to read or not to read. .
I’m sick and tired of the LEFT telling me WHAT I CAN’T SAY.
Meanwhile they say the most dispicable(sic) things and claim FREE SPEACH(sic).
QUID PRO QUO my commie friends…
You can also direct that statement to the black property owners/renters on Martha’s Vineyard.
That’s a“Hell, yes!”.
Ya know, I was born and raised in the city, as
diverse as one can be or as diverse a neighborhood can be and I’m so
sick of all this PC crap. Personally, I think it’s from people that
have no clue what it’s like to live in a freakin’ ghetto, yeah a
ghetto. Fortunately, the area in the city I grew up in wasn’t what it’s
like today. It was getting there, which is the reason I got out 20
years ago. But it was a ghetto of sorts. And today it’s much worse. And
many people got out which is why the city is what it is today. WTH
chooses to live like that?
I don’t give a damn if I’m called a racist or anything else…some
of us not only lived in the so called ghetto, we were able to WORK our
way out of it. And I’m damn tired of paying for those who don’t get up
off their asses and work. I don’t give a damn what color/race one is
but I know the so called minorities in this Country get a free pass on
And that’s a“Fuck yeah, and what’s it to ya??”.
More (and vintage) craziness after the jumparoonie…
Let’s see – what’s next?

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday
shows that 38% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way
that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Twenty-nine
percent (29%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval
Index rating of +9 (see trends). Republicans and Democrats are tied on
the Generic Congressional Ballot.
I think you guys are more like 23% of the population, but thanks for asking.

polls like this, but I think it’s pretty clear that half the country
seriously has no objection to being ruled by a fascist oligarchy, so
long as that oligarchy continues to throw them their scraps.
That’s pretty funny, considering that every time Obama drops one point in this exact same poll, you guys start hooting and flinging your own feces for twenty duplicate threads.
What else we got?

Lonewolf Diaries: Republicans Need to Grow a Sense of Humor

you’ve read correctly. To all of you GOP types playing the “offended”
card on a daily basis… Prepare to have your feelings hurt, because
according to my carefully calculated research… Republicans need to shut
up and laugh a little.
Never has the GOP’s lack of funnybone been
on sharper display than the last 5 months. For a party that claims to
“shun political correctness,” we’ve certainly done a good job of
embracing it. Over the past 150 days there have been three
“media-worthy” politically incorrect moments related to this
administration and Republicans have managed to jump on each one of them
for political gain. All to no avail. Let us examine:
You know – when someone on Breitbart tells you that the pearl-clutching and hanky-twisting is excessive, it’s definitely time to turn in your Man Card.

In a conversation the other day with a White House official, I heard
something I’d never expected from an employee of Barack Obama’s. “I
wish,” he said, “George Bush would speak up a little more.”
the five months since he left the presidency, Bush has immersed himself
in his memoir. He has stayed home in Texas and rarely spoken publicly.
The result has been that he has largely disappeared from the news and

he wasn’t a fighter when he was falsely and evily provoked, I wouldn’t
want to hear what he has to say now. It would surely be pathetically
neutral because that’s probably the most he could summon up to answer
his political enemies.
I believe he has a fighting spirit only
for enemy groups like the Taliban, Al Queda, the late Hussein’s army,
etc., not domestic enemies as individuals.
Let his surrogrates speak for him…and maybe he’ll be tough in the book he’s writing…when no one gives a damn anymore.

BAGHDAD – Iraqi forces assumed formal control of Baghdad and other
cities Tuesday after American troops handed over security in urban
areas in a defining step toward ending the U.S. combat role in the
country. A countdown clock broadcast on Iraqi TV ticked to zero as the
midnight deadline passed for U.S. combat troops to finish their
pullback to bases outside cities.
“The withdrawal of American troops is completed now from all cities
after everything they sacrificed for the sake of security,” said Sadiq
al-Rikabi, a senior adviser to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. “We are
now celebrating the restoration of sovereignty.”
The Pentagon did not offer any comment to mark the passing of the deadline.
Fireworks, not bombings, colored the Baghdad skyline late Monday, and
thousands attended a party in a park where singers performed patriotic
songs. Loudspeakers at police stations and military checkpoints played
recordings of similar tunes throughout the day, as Iraqi military
vehicles decorated with flowers and national flags patrolled the
“All of us are happy — Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds on this day,” Waleed
al-Bahadili said as he celebrated at the park. “The Americans harmed
and insulted us too much.”
Al-Maliki declared a public holiday and proclaimed June 30 as “National Sovereignty Day.”

One has to wonder what chance the Iraqis would have rebelling against Saddam, compared to what the Iranians are looking at now.
Oh – you mean like when Bush 41 told the Iraqi people to rise up against Saddm, they did, and were promptly slaughtered? Like thatchance?
You’re welcome. It was an honor for us to spend our way into bankruptcy for the priviledge of insulting you.
