  • Trump Supporters: Are We All “White Nationalists” Now? (Vanity)

    The allocation of culpability for the violence that resulted in the tragic death of Heather Heyer at a protest/counter-protest rally in Charlottesville, VA by the media last week really should not have come as a surprise. In the case of Republicans, the news-cycle will consisted of the following phases: If the violence is perpetrated by a hate group(s) whose members are racists, anti-Semites, and white supremacists, first, implicitly tie the Republican Party and its leaders (or if it is President Trump, explicitly) to the offending hate group; secondly, insist he or she publicly renounce the group; third, if the Republican...

    Suggestions on how to legally and peacefully protest with firearms. WHY Participate in Civil Disobedience with Guns? Was there a point during the Obama administration that you felt threatened and powerless? Were you convinced the government was sincerely committed to securing your constitutional rights and ensuring law and order? Were you certain that your military and law enforcement were being allowed to keep you safe from invaders, jihadists and revolutionaries? Were you confident your objection to Obama's fundamental transformation was being heard when you voted in 2010, 2014? The Obama administration was a soft tyranny, a silent communist insurgency that...

    Actor Richard Dreyfuss commented on the size of Donald Trump’s manhood and called Hollywood celebrities who support the presumptive Republican presidential nominee “whores” in a series of now-deleted tweets. “I don’t want to get into political partisan fights but the truth is Donald Trumo [sic]?! Well, hell, OK, you’ve made me a partisan. #NeverTrump,” the 68-year-old tweeted to his 92,000 followers, according to screenshots obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. “The saddest people aren’t Donald Trump’s supporters. They’re really struggling. It’s Donald Trump’s celebrity supporters who are whores,” Mr. Dreyfuss wrote. “I get the thing about ‘off the cuff speaking.’ I...

    Apparently this never got posted here because of the limitations of probation, so here you go: So...here we are...18 years. Mostly good. Clintons a Liar, Dr Raouls costumes, AppyPappy's daughter singing the National Anthem, Kristinns wonderful reporting. The repugnant lies of Classy Green Eyed Blonde and DeepInTheHurtgenForest. The surreal cryptic posts of quidam. The lib trolls like Eschoir. The March for Justice? Heady times. They really were. Fighting against a President who had the gall to look us in the eye and lie to us. But the last 9 months? Absolutely unrecognizable. A lot of great FReepers run off. And...

    I think we all agree that the quality of the opuses here on Free Republic has dropped considerably. Yes, I know that the plural of opus is opera. To me, opera is just some people putting themselves on a stage and waving their arms around and screaming something that nobody understands. By golly, that is exactly what the opus writers do. Still, the dictionary assures me that "opuses" is also a correct plural form of "opus". If you don't like it, well, write that into your opus....in Italian. My Dad always told me, "If you're going to write an opus,...

    I'm sure this will garner the usual percentage of ribbing, scoffing, etc., but: Jim, could you please delete my account? Apparently, I've outlived my welcome, and I'd rather not add any more aggravation to anyone else (including myself, in all honesty). Sorry to those who were upset; no permanent hard feelings, I hope.

    <p>Reminds me of something Mike Murphy said about Trump in the aftermath of Jeb’s collapse. The logic in favor of nominating another Bush was always, er, complicated, but the logic against nominating a loose cannon is straightforward.</p> <p>I’ll bet even Murphy didn’t think Trump would advertise the possibility that America’s creditors might not receive payment in full in a Trump administration. Choose your own preferred term for what he’s recommending here — renegotiation, bankruptcy, default.</p>

Freedrepublic.com has been a great site in the past and I pray that it might be in the future. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this site the past few years.

    What has happened to the Free Republic that I can’t break away from? You know the one where you knew something big was happening in the world because you couldn’t open the site because of too much traffic (late 90’s)? The one that where you read articles that were of great interest on science, religion, or the bizarro? The one where you would have to don a flame retardant suit if you posted something that was outside the thought prevailing thought process of the other posters? I long for those days as I am sure many of us do as...

    My involvement with Free Republic began around 2000 when my wife began her vigil around the Texas governor’s mansion in support of GW against the challenge of Al Gore for the presidency. I generally provided the livelihood for the Bat Lady to be able to protest and surround the mansion against the leftists who were kept at bay across the street. While she was registered in order to post after action reports I was a lurker

    Time to clean out the locker… I just dropped by to clean out the ol’ FR locker and to deliver a short missive. As this primary season ends so does the forum participation of 100’s of former freepers. It has become very apparent that the owner, the moderators, and many current freepers feel very threaten by any opposition to their anointed candidate. Only a weak candidate will feel threatened by the opposition and stoop to gutter language and personal insults. We all know to whom I reference. Donald has never been an individual I could support. This lack of support...

    As a 5th generation Republican and Lifelong Conservative the political events of recent years have been frustrating. None are more frustrating than this election cycle. We prayed and hoped for a real Conservative to counter the leftward pull of Obama. We wanted someone to pull the country to the right so we could possibly be, at least, center America, where we typically like to land in national politics. We have had several Conservative candidates this cycle, but many who have called themselves "Conservative" have coalesced behind a man who is the farthest thing from Conservative as is imaginable and why?...

    The year was 2012. Zero was running for reelection and the Repubs desperately needed a better candidate than they fielded in 2008 if they were going to regain the White House. As usual, Freepers were posting articles and comments about the upcoming election, the candidates running for the Republican nomination, how to defeat Zero, etc. During the primary season of 2012 Free Republics owner enthusiastically campaigned against one of the candidates, Mitt Romney. If the only information that you had about Romney was what FR's owner posted you would have had to conclude that Romney was pure evil concentrated. However,...
