But she comes out as the victim here. After she criticized the moderators for putting her latest pet theory (about the assassination/fake death of someone tangentially involved with Obama's birth certificate) in "chat" and not "news," she followed up by questioning the Freepathons.
She was only suspended, but when she was back, certain Freepers smelled blood in the water.
These extremists tend towards bullying, and this is the culture you get - a place where running to the authorities to get someone kicked out is a hobby for a substantial minority.
You know, like the USSR, or Nazi Germany, or Pol Pot, Mao, etc. etc. The irony makes your teeth hurt.
butterdezillion starts out by lamenting Free Republic's culture, which is already a bad move.
Free Republic no longer seems to be a place where people can talk about non-approved subjects without having a lot of crap thrown in their faces. There are a lot of good people here but you probably won’t hear from them because a conspicuous band of buddies is already here stinking up the thread. If the stink won’t shut people up the gagging will start. I just don’t want you to be surprised when it happens. As long as the good people of FR are fine with it, this is the pattern everyone can expect. Very similar to how Obama’s regime has silenced the voices they don’t want anybody to hear.LucyT then pulls this out:
Sad, because Free Republic has the best set-up and some of the best people, and could be a place of real resistance to this regime’s lawless conspiracies - many of which obots and “concern trolls” here once called “kook” until some in the MSM were able to report on some of the evidence. Stuff like rxsid mentioned - Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS-gate, NSA-gate, etc. All conspiracies, and all real.
Free Republic no longer seems to be a place where people can talk about non-approved subjects without having a lot of crap thrown in their faces.LucyT explains that calling for a military coup just isn't what Free Republic stands for:
Apparently you think Free Republic is a place where you are admired for your comment saying you want to spit on the Military.
You have no idea how many people were offended by your comment, and you've never had the decency to apologize.
Get off your high horse and stop criticizing people that don't agree with you.
Whoa now, where did THAT come from??Greenperson wishes he'd seen the offending quote. Ah, well.
As I recall, butter wanted the Military to “do something” about Obama, and the Military weren’t performing to *her* satisfaction. Then when she discovered things weren’t going her way, she wanted to spit on them.
Apparently butter didn’t, and still doesn’t realize she was calling for an overthrow of the United States Government, also known as a coup d’état, and reminiscent of banana republics.
Well, since BDZ’s comment explaining the above is now deleted, no one will see what she actually meant.Fred Nerks sees what's going on:
I don’t know what to say to that; I wish I’d have seen it before it was deleted for whatever reason.
She tried to explain but that wasn’t good enough. They won’t rest until they get rid of her.fatima has a record that she won't post:
It just means that the conversations are dead rather than lively, because people don’t feel they can speak candidly. Sort of the same effect as the PC stuff all around us everywhere else, only it’s crept in here too. It makes the place less than it could be. If a person didn’t understand the process and dynamics they could get pretty discouraged, which is generally the purpose for the techniques that the regime uses to oppress people.humblegunner, naturally.
Some of us had hoped it would be different here. Had thought for a while that it WAS different here.
Guess that means no.Am I an Animal-no.Do I have a record of your insulting posts to Our Jim Yes.
I thought anyone criticizing butters was supposed to be an enemy agent?Wow, Fred Nerks seems both empathetic and wise!
Now I haz a confused.
OK, I’m outa here. When you are being set up butter, it’s a good idea to take their toys away. They are playing with you, and you continue to respond. You give them sport. You are being baited. Turn your back. Walk away.Fred Nerks then narrowly escapes the zot:
If you people have a serious problem with the way I run FR, why the hell don’t you just go start your own damned site. No one’s stopping you.BZ doesn't walk away. so, in comes Jim Robinson
Sorry you took it personally. Most of what I wrote concerned itself with the behaviour of some members for which you cannot be held responsible. But you might consider reigning in the favoured attack-dog. He’s out of hand and rabid.
I just need to know what’s allowable so I know whether it’s worth spending my time here.
It’s probably not worth your time then. Goodbye.
