Skip to comments.It is time. My opus
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.
wtc911 is a lying, fraudulent Race Troll, and should have been booted from Free Republic a long time ago.
You will know I have been granted Admin Moderator status if it ever comes to pass, because wtc911 will be zotted (as a lying, fraudulent Race Troll) within seconds.
So far 297 posts. Methinks it will make it to 500.
Maybe I'll show the First lady this thread...
Care to point out what was in error in my post?
“Nice thread ya got there. It would be a shame if something were to... happen.. to it.”
Wow that is pretty Baa-Baa-Baa-Baa-Baad.
And you damn well know it.
He’ll make excuses, but that sheep was also underage.
The sheep was also under the influence.
And had a promising career in art ahead of it.
But it commited suicide the next week.
He sure has gotten quiet too. Typical du troll. Make accusations, and then run like a whimp when he can’t back it up with facts.
That's racism? Odds are strongly that the perpetrator of a violent crime will be black. So says the FBI Uniform crime statistics, prison population, and a host of other social indicators. A person who observes this statistical fact is not a racist. What is being mocked ins the press, for failing to -consistently- identify the race. The public impression the press is trying to create is that the racism issue in the US is whites hating on blacks, and doing violence to them.
Anyway, a person speculating that the perps are black (by saying "probably the Amish") has the odds on his side. Roll two dice, and odds strongly favor a number between 5 and 8. So, when the speculation is wrong (the dice come up 2 or 12), there is to be some sort of embarrassment or apology?
I have issues with FR too, but generally that there is a lot of noise for not much signal; and a few posters are beyond reason. Still, I do get some insights here. Nothing forces me to post, and the times I've absented myself for long durations, I didn't announce the change in my reading and remarking intentions.
'wtc911', you made a claim, on your profile page, that a "long time Freeper" posted that "all black youths are suspects - they kill and that the "mods let it stand". Produce your evidence, you lying, fraudulent Race Troll.
Admin, Jim: How long are you going to tolerate being lied about by this long-time troll?
Where did I say Martian invasion?
We already have enough laws on the books. We do not need more.
This thread has certainly exposed the Melas apologists and separated the wheat from the chaff.
“confused Keynesianism with socialism, socialism with communism, communism with Marxism, Democrats with Marxists, etc.,”
If you know of a good site that explains the definitions, similarities, and differences between these, please post a link. Plus the terms Maoist, totalitarianism, fascism, etc. If we’re going to be forced to live under this crap until Revolutionary War II, we may as well be clear on what it is.
Good Riddance. Ditto.
No mention of the fact that the Obama/Holder JustUs Department is unabashedly racist?
No mention of the fact that New Black Racists can engage in blatant voter intimidation and Holder tells the JustUs department to stand down?
