Well, guys – ya knew it had to happen sooner or later. That last little shred of sanity, that wingnut that held the Free Republic flywheel on has broken, snapped off, self-destructed – and they have officially gone insane.
There’s a few souls screaming as they hold on to the edges of the flywheel, but they’re just along for the ride.
Let’s suit up and survey the mental wreckage, shall we?

Take a gander at the provocative “tribute” to Veterans day on Google. Then never go there again.
It has a little red crescent peaking out from behind an American flag.
That’s not the sun. It’s an explosion combined with the crescent of Islam.
Red crescent moon in the bottom right. Islam!
That little red crescent is the E from the end of Google.
Sometimes people just read too much into things.
“That’s not the sun. It’s an explosion combined with the crescent of Islam.”
You can’t be serious. If you are…
Its just someone from islam
saying the sun is going down on America. Fact of the matter is the sun never rose on islam giving them progress, achievement and advancement…so its our fault and we are under attack.
Envious lot arent they?
Its just too bad that we have one of their representatives in the White House looking to level the playing field.
Sigh. If the DUmmies have a thread called “FReeper Follies,” I have a feeling this post would be on it.
This whole thread is embarrassing and should be wiped clean. Imagine the fun DU could have with the level of stress on display here over something so trivial?

If you want to know about God, you might want to talk to an atheist.
Heresy? Perhaps. But a survey that measured Americans’ knowledge of religion found that atheists and agnostics knew more, on average, than followers of most major faiths. In fact, the gaps in knowledge among some of the faithful may give new meaning to the term “blind faith.”
A majority of Protestants, for instance, couldn’t identify Martin Luther as the driving force behind the Protestant Reformation, according to the survey, released Tuesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. Four in 10 Catholics misunderstood the meaning of their church’s central ritual, incorrectly saying that the bread and wine used in Holy Communion are intended to merely symbolize the body and blood of Christ, not actually become them.
Atheists and agnostics — those who believe there is no God or who aren’t sure — were more likely to answer the survey’s questions correctly. Jews and Mormons ranked just below them in the survey’s measurement of religious knowledge — so close as to be statistically tied.
So why would an atheist know more about religion than a Christian?
American atheists and agnostics tend to be people who grew up in a religious tradition and consciously gave it up, often after a great deal of reflection and study, said Alan Cooperman, associate director for research at the Pew Forum.
“These are people who thought a lot about religion,” he said. “They’re not indifferent. They care about it.”
Atheists and agnostics also tend to be relatively well educated, and the survey found, not surprisingly, that the most knowledgeable people were also the best educated. However, it said that atheists and agnostics also outperformed believers who had a similar level of education.

So they characterize theological differences with your own church as ignorance? The bread and wine symbolism as the example. Wonder if they characterized Catholics for birth control in the same way — as ignorant. Stupid poll.
Last I checked, you don’t need to be a historian of the church to be a Christian.Plenty of retarded people have been called by Christ.
Just because someone thinks about religion a lot, doesn’t mean they have knowledge. While many believe they have religious knowledge, religion is based on belief, not knowledge.
This survey is a joke.
The majority of atheists are numbskull leftists who think that God enjoys burning people and “turn the other cheek” means set the murderers free.
I think thatthe more educated and intellectual a person is, the easier it is to fall into the same trap as Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden when they ate from the forbidden tree.

GRAND JUNCTION, Colorado (AFP) – A billboard depicting Barack Obama as an Islamist suicide bomber, a gay and a Mexican bandit has triggered a storm of criticism in a western US city weeks ahead of crucial polls.

If it didn’t have a basis in truth, Lefties wouldn’t be offended. They’d just laugh.
I am a conservative and a Colorado resident and I do not like the billboard. IMO, it does not lead to an intelligent discussion of the issues in this election, the differences between the parties, or the role government should play in our society and our lives. Worse yet, it might fire up the Democrats…and that is a sleeping dog I would rather let lie. In other words, the billboard does no good and may do harm to the conservative cause.
That said, I support the free speech rights of the person/organization who put up the billboard.

The owner of a Grand Junction company located beneath a controversial billboard of President Barack Obama is glad the sign is now gone.
Doris Downey, owner of J&S Fence Co., 2886 Interstate 70 Business Loop, said she neither supported nor opposed the message the sign was intended to convey, but its presence was a major disruption to her business.
“It was hard for my trucks to get out and hard for customers to come in,” Downey said hours after the sign was taken down Friday morning. “I defend the freedom of speech people have to put up the sign, but I have to say I’m thrilled it’s gone.”
Downey said the owners of the billboard company, Bud’s Signs, removed it after receiving threats from people who didn’t care for it.
Its artist, Paul Snover, said Thursday the controversial billboard that depicted Obama in several caricatures would remain for at least a month. He didn’t return e-mails or telephone calls to say why it’s been taken down, or if it would appear elsewhere.
Snover, who received numerous hate e-mails of his own about the sign, said he hoped to see it travel to other cities after the Nov. 2 elections.
The billboard depicted Obama as a terrorist, a gangster, a Mexican bandit and a gay man. After it was erected on Monday, Downey said her small parking lot often was filled with people who wanted a closer look.
“The problem was it was so detailed you couldn’t see it all until you got onto our lot,” she said. “The parking lot would be filled all the time. I don’t blame them for wanting to see it, but I’m happy it’s gone.”
Regardless of the sign’s removal, groups from around the state and the nation denounced its message, which Snover said was meant to highlight some of Obama’s programs that his client, whom he declined to identify, doesn’t care for.
Mi Familia Vota, Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition and One Colorado, a gay rights group, issued a joint statement Friday condemning the sign.
The issue is BIGGER than her business. Obama will shut her down. She should have been thrilled to have that up. As for threats, DEAL WITH IT! Threaten BACK.

This Wikileaks guy should become a casualty.
He’s releasing information that’s killing people and endangering our troops. And what goes around comes around.
I hope I don’t sound like a savage,.
No, you just sound like the typical bloodthirsty Freeper.You want to kill people you don’t like, but you’re too much of a coward to do it yourself.
or some kind of politically incorrect beast. But there are real lives on one end of this occasion, and if he can decide that they have to die, isn’t it at least worthy of considering that maybe that should be a two-way street?
You know what I’m talking about, right? There is this hippy(sic) group called Wikileaks
Why is it that you psycopaths who stew in the juices of your hate of the 60s seem tonever be able to spell the object of your obsession correctly?
It’s like if left-wingers constantly called you and your ilk “coneservatives”.
So I’m wondering why this guy doesn’t have an accident.
Well, not everyone can afford those adult-size Depends like you can.
I’m wondering why had(sic) hasn’t become a casualty in the war he seems so intent on fomenting.
And I’m wondering why you haven’t enlisted.
So I wonder why this guy is still alive.
You’d just think, with all the secret agents out there, with all the guns and poison capsules, how is it that this guy is isn’t room temperature by now?
“… like my cerebral cortex.”
There seems to be a deficit of gonads-or, even worse, complicity-at the highest level.
Assante is just a figurehead. In fact, many dislike him for it, and think he is just promoting himself while many anonymous people do all the work.
Bob (and everyone else) needs to calm down and check their facts before putting a fatwa on someone that would only become a martyr.
