I promised you I’d get back to you with a little info of what actually, over a little time, boiled out of the cauldron at Freerepublic.
First, just let us have a little look at the 9.11 troofer movement. The two Freepers who came to drive that juggernaut, now so popular with neonazis, arabs and Democrats alike are as follows:
Here is a typical Skunkworks post (one of the very first, in fact)
I am not a Destroyer of Israel. I am a ‘Shut-in’ trying to make friends on the internet. The post here was about the Holocaust – I saw Ellie Wiesel and did a ‘Internet Search’ on him.
When I read about burying people alive and for months the ground trembled and geysers of blood shot up. I just posted it.

Digging a little revealed that “Skunkworks” seems to have been one Darryl Bradford Smith, an extremely crazed
and virulent antisemite operating, eventually, “a vast array of websites”, and for some time actually based in France.
He used Audry Murphy as his avatar, and managed to piss the Murphy estate off enough that they were looking to find him and have the law on him, but he was at that point out of their reach.
The other fellow I mentioned was Freeper Ankaboot, and this is the old blurp on him:
AKA The Sheik of Springdale
AKA Dawud Ahmad Abdur-Rahman
AKA Dawud Ahmad al Amrika
Foundation to set up madrassas in the US
“The Children’s Forest”
Hosting and procurement of WWII nazi propaganda for neonazi use.
Arrested in 1998 on drug charges + multiple weapons charges,
Stevens County Superior Court Judge Larry Kristianson threw out
the case because the evidence had been obtained with an invalid
In 1998, appears to have shown great interest in disposal of nuclear
waste at a site in Springdale, see Springdale Town Council transcript of November 23 1998. The project in
question was Dawn Mining Company’s uranium reclamation. Mr. Ahmad seemed positive to the effort,
and very interested in how “rich” the reclamation material was.
Interesting quote in light of weapons charges:

I wonder what Pakistani gun laws are like. Anyone know?
Pakistani villagers manufacture serviceable copies of military weapons in firepits in their back yards that are the equal of similar copies being manufactured in American machine shops after hours.
God gives us the right to defend ourselves with arms. Gun laws? We don’t need no steenkin’ gun lawz …
Ankaboot eventually revealed himself to be a host for Skunkworks and his various nazist web efforts.
Now, these are just two of the people popping out of Freerepublic back in the early days. There would be
three very important forums, in terms of islamist takeover of USA, systematic antisemitism, and global
Al Quaida buildup. The three were Original Dissent, Libertyforum, and Samuel Francis forum. Two of them,
Original Dissent and Libertyforum, were started by Freepers, the third one attracted a lot of Freepers but
eventually died because Francis actually feared the legal consequences of what he was doing. Libertyforum,
on the other hand, ended up hosting a massive number of Freepers and playing a central role for Al Quaida
as a crossroads for demons of the antisemite kind. The forum folded in 2008, seemingly in connection with
the “installation” of Obama.
Many, if not most, of the antisemite weirdos of Libertyforum are now back on Freerepublic.
There and back again. But not really any Hobbits.
