    @bsking Nope. They were complaining that Facebook kept deleting posts that contained hate speech and the also deleted any and all posts which threatened violence against our president. So The Tea Party decided they needed their own space where hate and assassination threats are just hunky dory. No kidding.

    @bsking The owners of this site won't do the same? As soon as they figure out that data mining has some profitablity (already have) they will follow suit.
    They'll be awful bored without anyone to troll except for each other. Personally, I'm under the impression they get no worse than they give. It's just there are a large number of really dumb things that get said on right wing media that they parrot and when they're faced with the facts of it the dig in and look dumb. Saying they are unfairly attacked is ludicrous. It's the internet and people will attack you for whatever you say about any given topic at any given time. If you're that thin skinned you shouldn't go around telling people your political views and how they should live their lives. Especially if you're going to do it while slinging insults.

    @frigginhell On the bright side, it will be easy for the Secret Service to keep an eye on the assassination lunatics since they'll all be gathered in one place.

    Conservatives are tired of the forums where hate is pointed our way. Where hate is pointed at the old America which we love. The America that loves God,that supports the constitution, that says the pledge (in English), and support unborn children. We don't like this new america that the left loves so much. The new america where atheist rule, a Muslim in the white house, abortion supporting, pledge is outlawed(unless It's in arabic with under allah in it). This new America don't look to good to the conservatives and we are tired of seeing other americans happy about our countries destruction.

    If you want to return to the 18th century go form your own new country. The real world has passed you and your archaic thinking by as we move on into an uncertain future. Evolution, smart planing and adaptation are the keys to survival and prosperity. The old ways are dying and not coming back. Make adjustments or die.

    Atheists rule? No, they don't. They just don't have to keep silent about their beliefs. Welcome to freedom.
    Muslim in the White House? What nonsense.
    Abortion supporting? Your zeal would be more impressive if you actually cared about people once they were born.
    Pledge is outlawed? No. Go ahead and say it. No one's going to arrest you.
    I'm glad people who believe nonsense are leaving Facebook and forming their own circle... of ignorance.

    You want to read hatred? Go to forums about gays or abortion and wallow in the conservative hate.

    Atheists rule? No, you must be referring to the SECULAR government we have always lived under.

    Obama is not a muslim. He's also not a marxist, an illegal alien, or the antichrist. Just more neocon lies.

    Abortion is legal and will remain so. MYOB.

    Care to quote any statutes outlawing the pledge or allowing it only in arabic--a language most american muslims have only a passing acquaintance with, if any?

    Apparently many of the previous posters missed this part of the article. <GR&D>

    "But research suggests that it's the left, not the right, communicating in an echo chamber. As social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has shown, liberals are generally less accurate in their understanding of conservative ideas than conservatives are of liberal ideology."

    Nonsense. It's impossible not to understand "conservative" ideas because they are so simplistic.

    So what is wrong with people who share the same ideas creating a website for themselves? If you don't like what they have to say, then you can stay away.
  • #43

    Depends on what ideas they share. Wanting to freely express hatred and the desire to kill our president is a very poor basis for a social network -- and Facebook deleting those posts was a big part of their pique.

    @Zazziness who are they? Once that is established can you give me some proof of your comments? The Kill the president comment especially. Thank you

    @cleverusername Google the subject if you want more info. It's not hard to find and then we won't have to play the game where I give you links then you dismiss them all as "liberal media." There's plenty of info on it accessible with a search.

    @Zazziness No you made accusations more then once and said it is fact.Provide your proof or shhhhhh quiet it down.

    @cleverusername As you were already told, Google "Facebook censors hate speech." The information you claim to desire will be before you to the tune of over three pages of links. Of course, since you're not really after information you won't do that.

    I have a couple of conservatives on my facebook page, and while we are in a minority I haven't ever seen any negative comments toward us.
    I can't think of any thing more boring than a site where everyone thinks the same.

    Most conservatives dislike online forums that have open discussion, allows alternate views and censors hate speech. You can see it on this very forum. Anything that does not agree with their limited world view is liberal bias and unfair.

    @bsking if its the liberals who complain why is it the tea party who are running away in tears to another playground to drink their tea without upsetting distractions, like the facts? Seems obvious who the sore losers to afraid to stick around are. Not that I care, i look at face book less then once a month, i'd rather waste time on here. Not particularly educated opponents, but it's way more fun...and then, that rare momement when irrational though strikes, and we find ourselves in intelligent debate and maybe learn from each other. Rare as a teapartista not blaming obama, but it happens :)

    On the one hand it is interesting that this continues the trend of self segregation of conservatives and that it seems there is a trend that conservatives lack either by choice or capacity the ability to coexist within a larger community. This would be why we have other examples like conservapedia.

    On the other hand, "If you like facebook you are going to love the tea party community" If you like facebook, is that not declaration of independence against intelligence? Using it is one thing... liking and enjoying it is a whole other sewer of vapid.

    But in all fairness as someone who has on occasion defended "conservative views" I have seen it myself that the "tolerant liberal view" is often more intolerant of contradictory position. So I can at least understand why there is such a push, but I disagree that conservatives should cordon themselves off to their own private camps of thought. Despite the nature of conflicting position there is value of being exposed to opinions that directly conflict with your own as it is what helps to expand ones knowledge and world view. Last I checked, having more knowledge and insight was never a bad thing.

    Every liberal comment on this thread has been an attack on conservatives. Considering this is a group that preaches tolerance and inclusion they don't seem to practice what they preach. See what happens when you challenge their ideas. The personal attacks begin.

    @NTBFW I didn't mean to vote you up.

    As for your count, I don't see it. My tally was from an unbiased position. Yours, well let's just say that's like asking a thief to watch your money. Even ten minutes later, I'm hard pressed to find the 12 so-called liberal attack posts. But, that goes to prove that anything conservatives don't agree with is an attack on them.

    I'm far more conservative than most, and frankly, I don't care what anyone thinks about it. I know I'm correct, and whether Facebook agrees or not is not my concern. I find I'm using Facebook less and less over time as it becomes more cluttered and complicated. I haven't posted photos in months since they quit accepting them from plain camera phones, and I deleted a bunch of personal info last year, and don't plan to give them any more. I can take it or leave it.

    Well this is just another way of showing us that our founding fathers were right in what they believed and we have destroyed those sacred values. Hell at the rate our nation is going we might as well adopt a Russian or Venezuelan flag.

    Facebook has become biased for owebama ever since communist and friend of owebama became a major share holder.

    facebook is biased for obama? that's odd as the facebook community is made up of many people of many ideologys and itself doesn't have a political leaning. the politics are those of it's members. frankly, it's my friends of the conservative end of the spectrum who feel the need to put up links and quotes and articles and pictures of a political nature far more often then the ones who i'd think of as liberal do. I paused just now writing this to look at my facebook wall and my friends posts. I saw no less than 15 posts on gun laws, taxes, and obama all of a conservative nature. I saw one which you could term as liberal which was a pro school music class post -for the record it was put up by jr. highschool child of one of my friends. The rest of the posts were mostly about girlfriends, boyfriends, birthdays, work and the movie they just watched. Hell, I'm not even counting the God posts as conservative as I don't see how they can claim religion. It's a different thing all togather. If I lumped it togather like most people would it would have doubled.
    If you don't want people to respon to your post then quit posting or remove them from your friends list. I've done it more than once to avoid rhetoric spam. Or you could just go hide on another site all togather because you're butthurt. Frankly in 5 years FB will be replaced by the next new thing and this new site will have been dead for even longer.

    They get tired of posting propaganda and then arguing with people that know where they live so they fear getting beaten up for being an arrogant ignorant person. it is fun asking them to post real facts though and then all they can post is stuff from WorldNutDaily, Alex Jones and Glenn Beck. They just aren't able to understand that real facts require verifiable facts instead of just saying "Well Bill O'Reilly said...", I'm sure he did but that doesn't mean he was stating the truth.

    I think it's more a case of the lack of privacy on facebook. That mixed with people that care more about hell-no kitty pictures and lame quotations and poems when the reality is that this country is melting down.

    Yeah, great job! It makes alot of sense to make your own website where you can just preach to each other! Your thin skin is showing! How about you check your rediculously radical views and get your opposition to meet you somewhat on your sensible ones?
