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

Laz, you’re not following “the rules”!!! “The rules” state that if you’re accused of racism, you just shut up and sheepishly apologize for telling the truth.

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.

I don't agree with you on much of that and I've been here longer. People sometimes post stupid things, but a lot of what you are attributing to general membership is more appropriately aimed at concern trolls and baiters.

And you damn well know it.

-- 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. --

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?

perhaps you’ve been asleep for the past 4 years. Particularly the last 18 months when Obama and his campaign made it clear that they would not seek the White, working mans support.

And then took an “us vs. them” posture,, complete with rallying minorities to “get revenge” on their “enemies”.

The articles and reference are there, and were discussed right here on FR. Sorry you missed them.

and...BTW....since youve’ve been slumbering, we had another election since McCain.

again...just how did Mr. Nice Guy ROMNEY do?

Excellent Opus thread, at least above average. We have:

1. An initial opus based entirely on supposition and emotional reaction, not fact (as a bonus, this also contradicts exactly what the OP claimed about himself) - Check!

2. While it started off slow, with even some regretting his departure, this merely served as a tease, to whet the appetite so to speak, as later old forum divisions and/or animosities began to arise - Check!

3. It is currently ongoing, which this may provide further popcorn entertainment for 47 on an obviously slow workday - Check!

4. Meanings of posts misunderstood; this is equally distributed throughout the thread, peppering it with a not so subtle yet delicious spice. - Check!

5. Finally, the forum owner’s attention has been requested on numerous occasions, offering the promise of promoting the opus to “epic” status should he contribute to the melee. -Check!

Five stars! Thank you Melas for your self centered gravitas! If it weren’t for you this would be a truly hellacious day of intermidible hours upon hours of boredom! (I currently don’t have enough personal time to just bag the day, so I’m stuck in an inhuman cube)

Anyone agreeing with that statement needs to explain why the insertion of a penis into the anus of another man makes for a good system of government or society. Then needs to explain how they can support homo-anything and claim to be a conservative with a straight face.

Anyone wonder why the movement is such a mess? It’s because we don’t purge that mentality and those who hold it from our ranks.

As for WTC and his faggotry, I recommend everyone browse his post history. Between his rabid PDS, his inability to defend his posts RE: Stephen Baldwin/Porn and his lies about leaving FR, you should be quite busy for the foreseeable future.

As to why he is not called out on a regular basis or banned outright, I’ll never know.

I’m wondering when “A Perfect Lady” is going to try to tell us again how people are “born that way”.
Also wondering if they’re going to talk about third grade boys wearing dresses and how it’s just so cute again.

We’ve had the promo for homo crowd here for awhile trying to claim all kinds of BS.
Had one once try to claim it was good clean family fun.
They seemed stumped about being asked if the Folsom Street Fair was good clean family fun that should be seen on every street in Hometown USA.

Had another try to claim that homosexuality is a conservative value.

And then let’s not forget ‘The Freemason’ recently as well as ‘Brightitude’, both pandering and preaching the wonders of homomarriage.

These clowns tend to post on another site that is mockingly called trewblew, a site where they have an entire forum section devoted to us, obssessing about us, and talking about trolling us, then they come here to see how they can flame out.

Wonder what Melas handle is at the other site?

Best to you. When I feel like you I just take a long break.

Affirmative Action (the converse of ‘corruption of blood’) has had terrible effects on the race and on all of society- as it always has throughout history.
Recognizing and discussing that is neccessary to improving society for all.
It’s not a racial quality that has destroyed the negro in America, but policies that exploit them.
Guess it’s easy to conflate the policies with those they operate on.

Homosexuaity is not a good thing- as history shows. Of course neither is extreme reaction against it.

Anyway, I thnk a rest will do you better than quitting. JMHO.

If you click on a person’s name in a thread it will take you to their home page. From there there’s a link to “In Forum” if you click on that it shows their posting history.

I’ve found that’s the easiest way.
