TROLL! J’ACCUSE – FALSELY ACCUSED – PART I

A few days ago I posted this under the title Can One be PUMA and a Freeper at the Same Time. Yesterday I realized that what I am discussing is much larger than a site administrator suddenly revoking someone’s posting privileges without any notice and completely out of the blue or my bruised feelings about the unjust accusation. Hence the title change.

This is really about us. All of us . . . closing ourselves off into little groups, hurling accusations, like spit balls, at people and ideas we don’t agree with. As you read this. Ask yourself how many ideas you are really giving a fair voice to?

For months, the answer to that question has been yes, as it relates to me. That all ended two days ago, when my posting privileges at Free Republic (where Freepers come from if you don’t know) were suspended for being a troll. A troll! AN OBAMA TROLL? WHAT KIND OF TROLL?

Need I say that I was stunned? Anyone that continues to visit this site knows my positions on faux President Obama and his ineligibility of hold the office of POTUS, the new age phony Democrats, my support of Sarah Palin, and host of other topics that continue to plague this country. Taking about plagues, we can put Princess Pelosi, Haughty Reed, Piggy Schumer, and Barfy Frank in that class. Scratch the word “class” none of these people have any class . . . replace that with cabal.

For those who have never heard of Free Republic, it is a conservative site where “true believers” and Reagan Republicans come to blog and share information. Some have called it a rabid den full of conservative loonies, not me, but guess who? Before going any further, if anyone wants to jump ugly about either PUMA’s or Freepers, don’t. This is not meant to be disparaging of either group!

I, on the other hand, found it to be a place that welcomed me, a fierce moderate (something I share with Benjamin Franklin), a Hillary supporter, and a one time Democrat. Point of fact, they found me before I found them. I’d never heard of them and probably would have never sought this group out on my own. So how did the relationship happen?

When reviewing the blog stats for this site, I continued to see numerous hits from the Free Republic site. Hmmm . . . who were these people? Freepers were reading what I had to say on a daily basis. After visiting their site and with a little trepidation, I joined the group because I found I agreed with most (not all) of their positions. (Candidly, I’m always a little suspicious of people that claim to hold every position I hold. That’s not possible and anyone who claims to hold identical thoughts with you all the time is either lying to themselves or lying to you.)

Yes, I joined a group with the dreaded “C” word . . . no not that “C” word you fool . . . Conservatives. What I found were smart, savvy, to the point, and in your face people who dislike the direction our country has taken, as much as the PUMA’s do. Yes, I am a PUMA and proud of it.

So, what could be the problem since both groups that I associate with share a love of country, a belief that the Constitution is of paramount importance . . . that it is the life blood of this country and that our country’s continued greatness is dependent upon adherence to the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and the documents that form our most perfect Union.

The only thing I can figure out is I have second blog that has a very tiny following. It is called Say No to Plastic which I will get back to in a minute. It couldn’t have been my last post at Hillary and me, which focused on an update on Obama’s abilities to declare martial law. SO, I’m guessing this is the reason because I really don’t know. I immediately sent an email to the site administrator asking what I had done that caused the equivalent of my being guillotined in France. The response I received was:

{{Sound of crickets}} Bueller? Bueller? Hello . . . is anyone there?

Yup, no response from the administrator of a group that should represent respectful freedom of speech and thought . . . one would think anyway. Not a word …. Zippo, zero, zilch, nada.

Tomorrow, more in Part II.
