    Thats disgusting. I cant believe there are people in the world that would say that stuff about someones kids, especially an 11 year old girl. Makes me sick. They would find terrorist information in their apartments if it was my daughter. Then I would be the interrogator. Water board that vile mouth out real good.

    As well as the screenshot of the thread in question (long read):

    I've seen much much worse in these conservative sites and blogs. They NEVER attempt to censor any racism whatsoever. They only do so when someone complains.

    Since they are conservative Republicans they are probably Christian and therefore will go to Heaven.
    Remember for a christian to get into heaven all that matters is that they accept Jesus as the Savior. It makes no difference how they actually live their life.

    I just want to point out that this forum, Free Republic is not a Republican endorsed blog. I could be wrong if someone has more info. It is horrible what is said and is horribly racist.

    Lumping those comments as all republicans' beliefs is not fair either.

    Trudat. I should go and edit my comments. They're more like 'ultraconservative' blogs than anything else really.

    Right because this is isolated to blog comments. It isn't like a Republican state representative and GOP activist every did anything like this
    http://www.wistv.com/Global/story.asp?S=10526195&nav=0RaPIYA8

    And there certainly were never GOP mailings with racist imagery
    http://www.pe.com/localnews/inland/stories/PE_News_Local_S_buck16.3d67d4a.html

    And if there were racist mailings certainly it was some lone person and not a Republican Mayor.
    [url]http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/02/25/national/main4827964.shtml?tag=topHome;topStories[/url]

    And certainly a GOP official would never joke about how funny it was that black people couldn't escape hurricane Katrina but they could get to Obama's inauguration.

    Well, maybe that one did but I doubt any others did.

    Thanks for point out reactionary it was to think that a few bigoted comments on a blog were actually some kind of representation of a systemic problem with the Republican party. I mean if there were only real world examples then we would have something.

    LMAO! Lovely research! Thanks for presenting examples of the "something" -- well done! A few bloggers, alright, who are completely representative of mainstream Republican Party sentiments.

    This is just silly. Free speech also brought additional wonders such as The Simple Life, and the complete discography of Kenny Loggins.

    Yes, freedom of speech allows all kinds of shit to be spewed but I would rather have freedom of speech and all the crap the comes with it than not.

    Unfortunetly that's how it works and anyone that seeks public notice of any kind will go through this,it may not be right but that's how it is.

    Simple Life and Kenny Loggins?!?!? Damn!!! Two additional reasons for definitely inhibiting freedom of speech if there were any!

    Now had you said Reno 911 and Whitney Houston

    Shouldn't there be a line of demarcation - from freedom to closing you down?

    These Republicans can say what they like as far as I am concerned. They are digging themselves into a hole they can't get out of and their party is falling into that hole like a ton of bricks. Their views are played and they really need a party-wide overhaul.

    I like this saying: I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll fight to the death for your right to say it.
