It is time. My opus
Self | 1-28-2013 | melas

Posted on 01/28/2013 8:10:56 PM PST by Melas

While the title says it all, I thought a goodbye was in order.

While I've been a FReeper for well over a decade, I must declare that it is time to part ways. While I have the greatest respect for a great many of you, the days where I can in good conscience remain silent about the issues that set me apart from the rest of FReeperdom have past. For clarity, or perhaps catharsis, I'm not entirely certain which, I'll lay them out on the table an call the ZOT™ down upon myself.

The racism: I just can't handle it anymore. FR has become increasingly racist since President Obama took office, and enforcement has dropped. Now, not a single crime can be reported with an "amish" comment, and I've yet to see a post express embarrassment or shame when lo and behold sometimes the perpetrators turned out to be lily white.

Homosexuality: FR is on the wrong side of history on this one, and I'll just leave it at that.

Mostly though, it's the hate. More and more posts reference violent solutions to political disagreements. Some subtly couched, others make no pretense. I wouldn't be surprised at all if I read in the morning paper that a FReeper murdered a federal bureaucrat or a federal judge.

I've learned so much, from so many of you, and for that I'm grateful. I genuinely and truly wish all of you well, and sincerely hope you all live out the rest of your lives in happiness.

Melas

Everything you complain about began in FR as a REACTION to what was an overt set of policies instituted by this racist, hateful, homosexual-supporting socialist tyrant.

We are angry. We tried being friendly and smiling and getting along with leftists.

They did a Trayvon with our heads into the pavement.

Good riddance.

Profile: “ My first allegiance is to the truth, not ideology or politics. If the truth was that Joseph Stalin was kind to kittens, I would not let a lie to the contrary stand just because he was Joseph Stalin. If Abraham Lincoln fried ants with a magnifying glass, I would not suppress the truth because he was Abraham Lincoln. Reputations, legacies, causes, ideologies and religions all have to stand in the light of the facts. Anyone who would play fast and loose with the truth in the name of any of the above is not to be trusted.”

FYI, the concept of “racism”, which you should well know did not exist 150 years ago, and had to be invented, and it’s not something like a lightbulb that had to be invented, that concept is said to have been invented by none other than Leon Trotsky. It’s caught on, achieved its propagandistic purposes to the point where you and the Communists can sing Kumbaya together about it, even though it is something doesn’t exist, just like, say, global warming. Look up ethnocentrism, and tell us in what human culture, at what point in history, it did not appear.

Good luck in the church of anti-Racism!

i agree with you on this in essence... i'm not so sure FR has become increasingly racist, but many of the posts contain racial elements... comments... views...

Did you mean "passed"?

Of course you did.

But you are too smart by half. (Look it up).

Now just go away.

I have to laugh at this, given what the other side has done to George Zimmerman down in Florida. And I bet nary a beep from you huh

Don’t forget, Melas, these were the same open minded types who gave a standing ovation to the Simpson verdict

Oh yeah, and then there’s that other “protected class” who only started the spread of a deadly disease amongst millions around world, which includes infants, children, hemophiliacs, wives, medical personnel . .well, you get that picture surely

So yeah, good riddance

That’s his problem right there.

There are quite a few on FR, sadly, who don’t seem to care that much about the actual truth. Only about what they want it to be.

Ok, Adios then.

Re the homosexuality thing, by the way, both my gay brothers contracted AIDS from homosexual behavior, one who died six years ago, the other still suffering with the chemo. It is not a historical issue: history is clear on the matter, as is scripture and doctrine. The conservative tradition is correct, that is, morally correct, and physically correct. Decadence carries a high price. God does not make mistakes, yet people do have the freedom to err.

It sounds like you have a good grasp of the issues. These are dire times where we must denounce degeneracy, the homosexual agenda that is, crime, committed by feral animals that are fathered by Liberalism, and yes the calling out of treasonous politicians. Not for the faint of heart. Godspeed.

You’re right, you should move on to a job at PMSNBC or somewhere else that your talents fit in.

We hate race baitors.

We hate stupidity.

We are intolerant of sexual perversion.

We are intolerant of supposed FReepers that hate what America was founded on; if you don’t like it here, try France or Greece.

We hate the idea of rewarding criminals for invading our country.

We’re just all around not the kind of people that you’d like to associate with.

The racism: I just can't handle it anymore.

I've seen only one instance of racism here on Free Republic and that was back in summer 2009 when some moronic pictures and cartoons were posted about Obama's family (and his children) when they vacationed in France. The mods were quick on the draw and pulled the offensive thread.

Then the truth came out. The racist pictures and comments were the acts of leftist infiltrators trying to disrupt this site. It was clear that they weren't genuine FReepers. That one incident aside, Free Republic is perhaps the most non-racist site on the web. Have you forgotten that Jim Robinson looked very favorably on the candidacy of Herman Cain? And people like Thomas Sowell, Allen West and Clarence Thomas have long been held in high esteem here.

It really has changed around here. Some folks have gotten as foam-at-the-mouth nasty as the Dems did during their 8 years of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Now it’s pretty much an echo chamber of religious fanatics and angry reactionists. I don’t post much either anymore.

And when you find that place where everyone is perfect, everyone has impeccable manners, everyone expresses themselves in a manner always approved by you; please be sure to post a note telling us where that place is.

I will soon be 85 and I have not yet found it.

By the way, most of the posts here are trying to fight the same evils, although there are many opinions as to how to best do so. Some excellent ideas and some not good at all.

But in case you have not yet learned, strong differences as to how to solve a problem are stimulating to the mind. It forces thinking, and sometimes people must be forced to use their brains, not with a club but with provocation.
