Copy Of Free Republic Hate-Job On Mrs. Obama, Kids

Tue Jul 14, 2009 3:21 am

Found this pretty much by accident, as I was reading something else online. But apparently Free Republic which has been described as a MODERATED "premier online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web" was the site of what can be described as nothing short of a racists, online lynching of the Obama's recently. It was only pulled after other more respectible websites and blogs complained to the "moderators" that what was going on was completely out of control. Apparently, the Mods didn't find any of it offensive.

Here's a copy of the entire psoting on Free Republic, and some of the vile, disgusting things that were being said.

I'm not going to turn this into a bash-fest against Conservatives. I believe most conservatives don't have such personal vitrol against the Obama's. I believe many do. I wouldn't be surprised it someo n here think there's nothing wrong with this, either. But it's another black eye on the face of conservatism at a time where it doesn't need any more bad press.

It does tell you one thing-even in 2009, after all the progress we've made in this great nation, that racism is still alive and well in many quarters. And to think such lunatics vote.

By the way, did anyone notice a fairly familiar Anet handle on there? Hopefully, just coincidence.

Edited as text didn't get linked first time.

Nothing wrong with critisim of the false messiah Obama.

With the way his poll numbers are tanking and unemployment is rising more and more people are thankfully realizing that he wasn't was he promised people he was.

L-188, there is something wrong with it. This was NOT criticism of policies. This was low-ball name-calling, of the worst kind, of a child and her mother.

If you want to critisize on policy, nothing wrong with that. But when people get in the race gutter like this-and they did in this blog-then it shows we still have a LONG way to go on race.

The fact that you don't see that as a problem puts up a big  redflag  for me about where you're coming from.

Uh, actually, I did NOT, L-188. I was one of the first on here to condemn the crap about Bristol. It had no place in the discussion. If you want to say my criticism of Mrs. Palin for not being able to answer a few simply POLITICAL questions thrown at her is the same thing, well 1) you're wrong, and 2) the nI guess you DO think it's OK to personally smear a young girl.

Read again, Maverick. It is a MODERATED forum. it was left up and running, full of that hatred for a long time. Look at the bottom of the page, and see how many pages and posts were allowed before it was yanked. Big diff.

A) no "we" didn't. David Letterman made off-color jokes about Bristol Palin that were inappropriate. They shouldn't have been said; whatever Sarah Palin does, Bristol deserves her privacy.

B) The jokes Letterman made were miles away from what is on the pages of that forum. Letterman was being sarcastic, satirical, whatever you want to call it, but he wasn't being sexist and racist. He wasn't spitting out pure venom, which is all I read on that entire page.

There wasn't even ONE person on that forum that said "wait a minute... you guys might be going too far. We may not like Obama, but back off Malia." Even on here, someone would have been a voice of reason, and the fact that there was not one scares me.

Yeah, that's kinda like the democraticunderground of the right. Still, most of the people I know in real life who identify themselves as Republicans are nowhere near as bad as Freepers. On the other hand, it seems like many real life Democrats come closer to being democraticunderground types.

Anyway, we just need to step back and realize that these people just get their rocks off on being internet dbags. No need to get worked up over it.

Would you care to explain where on their website it says that the forum is moderated? I see where it says they retain the right to remove offensive posts but not that it is continously moderated as is the case here.

As several posters have said, you can find all sorts of evil people on the net if you look around just a little.

About the Obama children wear, I may sound a bit conservative here but they are the children of a Head of State, albeit one of the most powerful on the planet.

I think the mother should make a bit of effort and care so not to have the daughters wearing anything and everything when they are going on an official trip where they are being watched by the whole world media about every step.

I don't remember seeing Amy Carter or Chelsea Clinton (both democrat US Presidents daughters) wearing such far out outfits during their official trips if they participated to the trips at all. This is not Bush or Reagan I am talking about but more like recent Democrat President's children.

I don't think the Obamas have any excuses for this. They are the ones who should be a bit more careful of their chidren's wearables and behaviour in public when they travel abroad. This is not holiday trips but official visits to other Heads of States.

Ok, let me be more specific. Since we aren't talking about something that no longer exists, in which case Wikipedia might be an ok source, where on Free Republics website does it say that the forum is moderated by a staff? As I stated earlier, the website does reserve the right to remove any offensive material but no where that I can find on the website that is open to the public do they claim that it is moderated forum.

What would the Democrats be saying if McCain were in office and running up a $1,000,000,000,000.00 in 1 year!!!!!!??????? I can only imagine. Or if unemployment were rocketing right up to 10% up to as high as 13%?? My gosh...

I play video games on Xbox Live and it never ceases to amaze me just how much racism there is in that particular arena - particularly from American patrons. Just a couple nights ago I overheard something to the effect of "go f*ck yourself you f*cking c**n sh*t, you're probably a n***er or at least related to one. How'd you get the money for an xbox did you rob a liquor store or is that n***er Obama cutting you bigger welfare checks these days." What's sad is that these are people my age or younger who should know better. I guess if you give idiots a microphone and relative anonymity you're going to prompt them to share their deepest hidden sentiments.

Why is it when anyone disagrees with Obama or his policies, they are immediately called racists? We are farther apart than we were in the 60s racially, and that is not the fault of Conservatives. Bush had more blacks working under him than Clinton or Obama, why is that never brought up? The real racists in politics are the ones always playing the race card, and last I checked, that wasn't many Conservatives.

I agree with you 100000% every time I say I don't agree with him on immigration, foreign policy, or the war. I immediately get accused as a racist and no better than the KKK. Every body got so swept up on the Obama craze with the media and same with the Pailin craze. If TMZ was to say that Obama eats kittens for snacks and Mccain is old and senial and yells at parking meters naked in pink bath robes people would consider that more liable than Fox or CNN saying there real opinions on the details. Ever sence JFK who ever the media builds up or tears down follows that matter.

I have to admit Canadians are alot cleaner and more down to the point. On Halo evey time you take a kill you get called a N***** loving Obama man. and kids today think its cool to have tags that are incredibly offensive that say things like "Obama picks my cotton" witch is just sick and Microsoft refuses to take care of it. And 90% of these kids are just repeating what they hear from there parents and just think that its cool to be racist or when you hear stupid kids think that Jeffrey Dahmer is cool. One of my neighboors has a shirt that says Jeffery Dahmer is my Lord... It is just appuling

On a lighter note if you want to knock out some zombies or take out some idiots on Halo just send me a message!

I don't think the Obamas have any excuses for this. They are the ones who should be a bit more careful of their chidren's wearables and behaviour in public when they travel abroad. This is not holiday trips but official visits to other Heads of States.

On this there is no question. The kids are dressed horribly.

They are accompanying their father on official state visits. Even if they sneak off to do a little sightseeing on their own, they will be noticed, and must consider themselves as representatives of their country. They should be well-dressed and well groomed.

Some people might say, "Oh let the kids be kids". Sorry, but this is part of the price to pay when you run for high public office - your family WILL be scrutinized. Most people will be fine with leaving them alone, but they are effectively ambassadors of their parents.

The same could be said some 8 years ago when GW Bush's daughters were photographed falling down drunk at a college party. If you don't feel that your kids can live up to that standard, then don't run.

Wearing clothes the general public would wear (what a sin!) and getting wasted at a college party are two different things. Anyone with half a working brain (to use one of your lines) will recognize that.

I wish they'd dress a little nicer, but it's not the end of the world. No one looks down on America's First Family for wearing the same style shirt and shorts that about three million French women wore the same day. Looking at it from another angle however, I have noticed that the Obamas often try to project this image of being an average American family. That's the reason why President Obama goes to these restaurants, orders off the menu, and pays cash...it's all for image.

I'll reserve my words of contempt for Mr. Obama's children if/when they do something genuinely stupid...

Yea but no one called Palin anything racist. I admit that even I have said some bad things about Palin and her daughter, but never have I ever once thought about saying anything racist about them because a pregnant 18 yr old girl is not just a white issue, it's every body's issue in this country today. My problem with all the heat they're catching is that they're black and being made fun of because of it. "Obama picks my cotton"? how immature is that. No other president has suffered such immense racist attacks from anyone and it's a shame that the nomination of the country's first black president made it seem as though we've taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back in terms of racism. Then we have the nerve to tell every other country what proper human rights is.

We gave Bush eight years for what? You absolutely cannot blame Bush for the economy. The reasons for the collapse are a series of mistakes starting with the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 under, you guessed it, Jimmy Carter. Bush assumed a minor recession, then a full recession in 2001, then we exploded out of it, then the underlying issues finally started to surface and the Democrats used that to their advantage and thus we have Obama.

Ok, I also agree that the blogs contents were done in very poor taste. But I don't think they were necessarily racially motivated. I think they were done out of the same kind of anger and contempt towards the Obamas, that the Left displays towards the Palins. If you look at it from that angle, they are no different from each other.
