Free Republic founder made some waves Monday when he told Politico:
Free Republic is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-small government, pro-constitution, pro-liberty site. Governor Romney is none of the above. His record is that of an abortionist, gay rights pushing, gun grabbing, global warming advocating, big government, mandate loving, constitution trampling, flip-flopping liberal progressive with no core values. That and the fact that he is the chief architect and advocate for ObamaCare disqualifies him for any consideration whatsoever on Free Republic as a potential nominee for the presidency. ...
Liberal progressives and other enemies of the constitution and or of Liberty itself are not welcome here. Accounts registered here by liberal progressives and other assorted trolls, malcontents and disruptors will be removed on sight or at the convenience of the site administrators.
Good for him.
I'm not a Mitt Romney fan and recognize that he may very well be the nominee in November and I had approached this primary season philosophically: that is, if Romney won I would actively support him. I'd deceived myself into imagining that his campaign would not attract the same bunch of dishonest hacks he did in 2008.
I was wrong.
They are worse this year than they were in 2012.
The scam they are running this year is attempting to silence individual moderators by sending complaints to... wait for it... the moderators. I'm taking personal pride in the level of attention they are devoting to me because it means I am being successful in my job of preventing candibots from taking over the site.
Though RedState more likely than not will not take the extraordinary step of banning Romney supporters as we did Paultards it doesn't mean it would be unjustified or even a bad idea. The Rombots should hope that the subject never comes to a vote by the moderators because they won't like the outcome.
