This has been a day especially full of social insanity, and we have a tsunami of Free Republic mania washing over the land as Jim Robinson is feeling the pinch of donors jumping ship, and Jim tries to lure back suckers that he has banned in the hope that he can fleece them another time. We’ll see how that plays out, but it doesn’t look promising.
But first, just a couple of snapshots from the idiotglobe:
In Italy, the food producer Findus is endorsing homosexual marriage. I actually, back in my wild and wooly days, worked for that company doing unspeakable things to fish. Now it seems the company is more into doing unspeakable things to anuses (or is that “anii”?). I expect they’ll have new naming soon, like FindusSodom.
From MEMRI comes the news that a Saudi “Scholar” claims that Mickey Mouse and basically all of Sesame Street is a Jewish Plot to destroy the world. The poor man is obviously confused – first of all, Sesame Street’s artist is an insane antisemite, as we document here:
NB: I haven’t checked the link to Mr. Dee himself lately.
Anyway, I have no doubt that our Norwegian Scholars will take issue with the confused arab and tell him that the Jewish Plot is really against the Known Universe
But back to FR. It seems JR is trying to stir up an actual shooting war in Texas. His “praetorian guard” has been, for years, a particularly lunatic group centered around Tom Eaker. And is you look a bit at Mr. Eaker’s FR profile, he’s certainly itching for war – against JimRob’s opponents.
And JimRob’s sedition/incitement thread:
So I guess we’ll see at next begathon, which is just a week or so away. There has aready been activity by Freepers yanking their monthly donations, but maybe Jim figures that if he can incite some real bloodletting it’ll mean money in the bank.
Never a dull moment…
