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?
“Homosexuality: FR is on the wrong side of history on this one, and I’ll just leave it at that. “
You are agreeing with that statement?
Sorry; just was trying to post my opinion on the Opus nonsense.
Last election wasn’t McCain.
It was Romney.
“And please refresh my memory of when Obama openly declared war on the white man? Waiting...............”
How many times have we been told that it’s raaaaacist to oppose his policies?
How did that court case against the Blank Panthers for voter intimidation go?
How many lopsided examples of this administration being only for certain select individuals do you need?
You weren’t paying attention to the news the past five years?
HOW BIG OF A RESPONSE DO YOU REALLY WANT?
Or are you trolling?
You know nobody that agrees with trollboy will read the text at the bottom of that, right?
Not a problem, just wanted to make sure the comment hit its mark.
Obviously you were on the wrong website, pal. Buh-bye.
Yup. Based on that post alone, he thought we should all be fag friendly here on FR. Good riddance, drama queen and don’t come back.
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?
Colin Powell..........is that you?
I agree we don’t need more laws. What new laws do you think I’m espousing?
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)
You might try Mylittlepony or hellokitty forums. Maybe Metrosexualtoday.com discussion board?
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.
We need to get some donations from this thread!
WTC911 Post 477 WTC's post itself and promise to leave was removed. Only responses are left.
WTC911 Post 145 leaving FR due to FR's "lack of integrity".
“Homosexuality: FR is on the wrong side of history on this one, and I’ll just leave it at that. “
Just because sometime becomes tolerated, then accepted; doesn’t mean it’s right.
I have never encountered "racist" comments here, except when libs or Islamists are quoted. I think the Amish comments are great irony. Freepers are the most informed and smartest people I have ever met.
How does one find the history of a posters comments? Anyone.
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?
Melas pushing the prohomo crap here isn’t appreciated, even less appreciated than his lying piece of crap opus and his obvious lack of intelligence shown by his drama queen exit.
The draaaaama,it’s so dramatic!
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.
