Obscure white power blog you say no but a "Conservative grassroots political discussion and organizing."

http://www.vancouver...2375/story.html

"A typical street whore." "A bunch of ghetto thugs." "Ghetto street trash." "Wonder when she will get her first abortion."

These are a small selection of some of the racially-charged comments posted to the conservative 'Free Republic' blog Thursday, aimed at U.S. President Barack Obama's 11-year-old daughter Malia after she was photographed wearing a t-shirt with a peace sign on the front.

The thread was accompanied by a photo of Michelle Obama speaking to Malia that featured the caption, "To entertain her daughter, Michelle Obama loves to make monkey sounds."

Though this may sound like the sort of thing one might read on an Aryan Nation or white power website, they actually appeared on what is commonly considered one of the prime online locations for U.S. Conservative grassroots political discussion and organizing - and for a short time, the comments seemed to have the okay of site administrators.

Moderators of the blog left the comments - and commenters - in place until a complaint was lodged by a writer doing research on the conservative movement, almost a full day later.


During the campaign, she proved allergic to briefings and remained determined to stay uncorrupted by knowledge.

Dude, it's Free Republic - nothing they say there should surprise anyone. They're like a sump of bizarre thinking. (And no better is the other side's Democratic Underground.)

I have never heard of either so I guess this means they get no credibility.

This thread was generated to silence all criticism of Obama. It was designed to somehow attach Republican and conservatives to a racist group of idiots. Because, being called a racist is the highest insult in today's society.

The racial insults are disgusting but they very few who use these words should not used as a cudgel against those of us who don't

DU constantly had people using deragatory terms about Barbara and Jenna Bush. It was tasteless and this kind of trash about President Obama's kids is as well. They should attack the man's policies and decisions if they wish, leave his children out of it. :mad:

In poor taste and completely wrong, but not a sign of the apocalypse or that every Republican is bad or even shares those feelings.

Mark my words, Palin quit for money. Not for Alaska, not for the troops (where does she come up with this stuff), not because of the media scrutiny and especially not for her family. She will do a book tour, she will do talk shows, she will speak at republican functions and make a lot of money (the rubes will pay her a lot), and she will eventually end up on Fox. She quit to make money, plain and simple.

My God, man, do you hide under the bed in the afternoon.

If you'd like to see fewer efforts to paint all conservatives as racists, you might want to try cleaning your own house for a change.

There were hundreds of posts when it was thought they were going after Palins kids. (Turned out they were going after the loose 18 year old though).

This time when they are going after Obama's little girl....posts, not so much. Lets hope Obama has the internal fortitude to not quit because of them picking on his daughter. :rolleyes:

Both sites can revoke your membership for disagreeing with them. That, right there, tells you most of what you need to know about the people who run them.

Well, not everybody. As the Dems shift their focus from poor blacks to poor Hispanics, wonder what will happen in the long run. Cause, no-one likes being 3rd. This could get really interesting. Esp if the Hispanics should ever wake up and see that 40+ years of lying and BS is just that.
