We conservatives are like abused women. Every time some basically leftist guy with a decent sized conservative streak like Romney or Christie brings flowers we swoon.

Freepers dreaming of the day their own Pol Pot comes along to purify the country.

Freepers dreaming of the day their own Pol Pot comes along to purify the country.

The right wing base have stated they want to take the USA back to a "Year Zero" revolution.

Wow. Doubling down on the blood libel of "Republicans would nominate Putin if they could." Freepers are baffled and deluded. They are full of anger and frustration. But they don't actually want everyone who can read to be put to death. They don't actually want rivers choked with bodies.

Comparisons to Pol Pot amount to playing the Hitler card. Think of Destro's wise and moderate observation in the text of this post to the effect that it's a good thing when one Freeper comment laments the rise of "Libtard" and "Rethuglican". Intemperate characterizations of the other side as the incarnation of evil dark and sulfurous---are unfortunate. And inaccurate.

In defense of my Skip Intro, I can literally find hundreds posts of Freepers wanting a Putin like figure as president of the USA.

No, I'd say it's playing the Pol Pot card. Freepers want a mysterious, all powerful leader who will do all the things to their "enemies" they long to do, but lack the balls to do it themselves. They want to "purify" the country, which is exactly what Pol Pot, and every other totalitarian thug, planned to do.

Freepers are basically birthers cubed, and would be "frogmarching" their enemies to their execution, as the birther queen, Orly Taitz, has said she wants to do, on many occasions.

These people have gone beyond extreme, any if you think otherwise you're just not paying attention.

re: #5 Skip Intro

Have you seen the movie "The Killing Fields"? It's an extraordinary accusation to make, if you grasp the nature of the claim. Pol Pot didn't "purify" Cambodia. He instituted a reign of wanton evil that sadistic madmen the world over envy.

Think what you say.

Do Freepers want to tie up the rest of us to trees, cut our livers out, and eat them before our eyes? That's a documented, common practice of death camp guards in Pol Pot's regime.

The Pol Pot regime killed so many Cambodians of ethnic Chinese and Vietnamese extraction that the Mekong river became unnavigable because it was choked with bodies. And then they raided into Vietnam, and put Vietnamese villages to the sword.

Vietnam was patient to a point, but eventually the string of provocations and outrages tried their patience to the breaking point and they invaded and overthrew the regime.

Freepers have dark impulses. They indulge in fantasies of purges, some of them. They're not my kind of people, to say the least. But if they really, truly wanted to do something like that, we'd be seeing straws in the wind: savage crimes, over the top symbolic murders, and by the hundreds and the thousands. That's what the Pol Pot insurgency was up to, before it came to power.

Think what you say. Intemperate comparisons take the sting out of legitimate criticism. A studied understatement is better. I would rather not have had to spell out some of what Pol Pot's guys did, but I give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn't realize what he'd done and thus didn't realize the scope of the indictment you'd brought against Free Republic commenters.

One of the refrains I keep seeing in this comments is that Obama is somehow handing out other people's money to disaster victims, which I suppose to a freeper means the family whose house was just demolished are somehow freeloaders and Obama is somehow an empty suit.

I can't tell if they're pissed because it's Obama making the speeches and appearances, or if they resent disaster victims getting federal money, or both. Either way, it makes no damn sense to me. What idiot expects the president to be handing out his own money, when there are funds in the federal government set aside for disaster relief? What idiot expects the president to sit idly by while millions of people are suffering from a natural disaster? (If he had, they'd bitch about that, too.) What idiot complains when a disaster victim gets federal assistance, which is after all just a tiny percentage of the total US budget?

Well, I know the answer to the questions: the kind of idiots who post at Free Republic. They're afflicted with severe ODS and a hyper-Randian case of "I'm OK, so fuck you."

I'm not quite sure what lesson the commenter Wideawake learned. He or she certainly isn't saying federal government aid is needed. They don't even mention it.

And what it is the "insightful" analysis of the Benghazi incident that they're talking about? I'm getting the impression that it is accusations that Obama knew it was coming and sat by, only more polite.

The NJ freeper "wideawake" who I mentioned tried to counter that argument by saying New Jersey pays more into the Federal govt than many of these so called "red states" who are freeloaders and so it is sort of making NJ revenue neutral no or some such. I guess this freeper would be pissed if Alabamians got FEMA money but the FEMA money coming into his state is OK (and because he lives there).

I'm not quite sure what lesson the commenter Wideawake learned, either other than his fellow conservatives would throw him to the wolves when he needed federal aid help, even when he thinks there is a good reason now for such socialism. I guess.

And yes, I am getting the vibe that they don't want to say it out right but they are thinking deep down inside that Obama planned this somehow with Christie.

"Don’t forget, Massachusetts and New Jersey are mostly enemy territory."

They hate their fellow Americans. Yet I always find right wingers accuse the left of hating America.

Free Republic has been full of rage towards Barack Obama for years by this point. Stewing in that sort of rage is seriously unhealthy and its not surprising it's resulting in pathological thinking.

re: #14 Dark_Falcon

You act as if Freerepublic is some sort of outlier for the right wing. It is the GOP base in a nutshell. Yes, there are moderate such people still voting Republican but they are the outliers.

Yeah, that's the problem right there.

For all intents and purposes, I guess I'm liberal. Pro-gay marriage, pro-legal pot, atheist. Don't think all guns should be banned, but definitely on-board with severely limiting or banning automatic weapons. In favor of universal health care, although I have my concerns about Obama's plan.

I've said this before, but I don't enjoy watching conservatives/Republicans fall apart like this. Democrats are not angels, and they're just as beholden to the same sort of corporate interests as the gang across the aisle. We need healthy, vigorous, logical, intelligent debate in our government.

And that's the issue. When I see the amount of unrepentant bigotry, misogyny, and religious fundamentalism that serves as the Republican platform, I worry. A lot. And I'm not really sure how the GOP comes back from this.

I live in a part of NJ that got very lucky regarding Sandy. Not a fan of Christie's by any stretch, but he's doing a wonderful job. We got hammered. Badly. Christie is doing what a competent leader should do; worry about their constituents first and put politics aside.

It's a very sad state of affairs that many Republicans are vilifying Christie for thanking Obama (who is also doing a great job) for all of the help he's delivered.

It's one of many symptoms that's indicative of how fucked up Republicans are these days. At this point, if the reality denial stops here, it's still going to take a generation to get this poison out of their system. If at all.

This is a WND columnist quoted for sanitary reasons through Wonkette. Corsi of WND has been invited to fly the Romney campaign plane.

"It is improbable that the framers of the Constitution anticipated a situation in which the press were entirely given over to seditious, anti-American policies. If they had, it is likely that their modus operandi would be similar to that for any faction found guilty of high crimes. Trials for treason and the requisite sentences would apply, and I would have no qualms about seeing such sentences executed, no matter how severe."

re: #16 Mattand

I have said it before and some people here doubt it but I was a Republican. I was a Republican because I went to a business school and thought that this limited govt thing was good for the economy (I was never a social conservative per say).

I changed. I changed because while I was educated in the ideals of capitalism I was also educated to judge empirical evidence and the evidence that was presented to me by the economic collapse told me that the limited govt thesis of the GOP failed as did the thesis that low taxes on the rich creates jobs somehow.

Once those were proven to be ideologically driven myths I moved away from the GOP towards whatever economic system or idea works for any given problem. Sometimes its less govt, some times more govt and sometimes a mix is required of the private and public.

re: #18 Decatur Deb

Great find above. I have read similar calls to execute non Republicans as traitors to the country, the revolution, etc.

Exposing this is not being done so we can have a laugh at the crazy GOP types (thought they are amusing in a gallows humor sort of way) but to expose as much as possible what kind of people are the GOP base and how dangerous and or unhinged they have become.

Skip was clearly talking about Freepers, not all Republicans. You know how you can tell? Because he said "Freepers... " not "Republicans..."

So find a new straw man.
