freepers caught in the act of being themselves

Speaking of trolls, here's what happens when they own the joint:

Conservative Free Republic blog in free speech flap after racial slurs directed at Obama children

If I were conservative, I'd insist on calling these people something else.

Thanks to Zerbisias.

Worth noting:

"After attention from other blogs, the thread was suppressed and placed under review, but before long it was returned to the site intact, and attracted a new series of racial slurs when the original complaint email was posted publicly to the site, with the sender's email address intact."

P.S.: FR is NOT a blog, it's a message board or discussion forum. Why is that so hard for media to understand?

Why do they care? Why would anyone waste a moment's thought on the (minor, not politically involved) children of a politician they dislike?

I believe they care because they are bigots. They are enragedthat a brown person is POTUS.

And remember, to them, POTUS is like a king. It's not just a job like the PM here.

You really have a point there. I think it's because our head of State and head of Government are the same person instead of a PM selected from their peers and a King/Queen who is entirely symbolic and has no actual political power.
