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

Anonymous federal bureaucrats at the EPA just made a decision in my area that WILL incur fatalities - fatalities that are 100% avoidable.

I kind of consider that "murder", but of course the US Department of Media would NEVER point that out.

I just can’t take it anymore!!! I’m going to have milk and cookies and then go to bed. Try it, you’ll feel better in the morning.

I see some of your fellow travelers have posted here tonight. They should probably go with you to DU.

Sounds like you’ll be happier back at Demorat Underground.
They like victimhood, reparations, and homos there.
Good riddance, you surrender monkey.

As a person of color myself, I can’t tell you how offensive it is to me to have homosexual rights equated with civil rights.

There is no comparison, and I am shocked that other non-whites don’t speak out more against this comparison.

I would have prefered it stayed with the muslims.

Seems another term could have been used for the “dawgs”.

But, times change.

Thanks for note.

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.

I could not have said it better.

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...


I could spend two hours typing how President Obama at least appears to be quite the racist and a jerk himself and posting about it isn't being racist.

Any example of just who it is that is pushing religion on society by the power of the gun?

Agreed, the left does it but it should not. No one should. Still, as conservatives and libertarians, I think they are pushing us into a corner though and that is not good.

One thing I do fear is the tyranny of the left but I’m also afraid of a tyranny from something akin to an American version of a Taliban.

So conservative FReepers are the Taliban?

I don't think you know what the word "Taliban" really means.

See ya. When I go it'll be quietly because I've had enough, and I like and respect most people here enough to not bore them with a protracted goodbye.

That or I'll just disappear off FR because Holder's minions have finally figured out who I am in real life and they've arranged a little accident. Practice opsec everyone.
