2004 Freerepublic Obama thread

In prep work for the History of Freerepublic.com, I ran across this 2004 era Barack Obama thread. Let’s go through it and find out any similarities to 2010…

The Barack Obama-Alan Keyes Illinois Senate campaign was happening in 2004, here is FreeRepublic and Jim Robinson chatting about Obama, Alan Keyes (back when FR had a hardon for Keyes), and all things Freep:

Vanity: Alan Keyes for Senate
Aug 23, 2004 | Jim Robinson

I’ll make this short and sweet (kinda like this is your brain, this is your brain on crack – any questions?).

a) Alan Keyes is an America loving, Constitution loving, Liberty loving, pro-life ultra conservative. We’d be ^damned lucky to have him in the Senate if we could get him there.

b) Barack Obama is an America hating, pro-abortion socialist communist. It’ll be a dark day for America if he’s elected.

Any questions?

Yeah, how mad will you be if Barack is elected President? I guess we’ll find out…

We were surprised that Keyes got even one vote. (Not really)

To: Jim Robinson
Thanks for your post. While no one has actually made fun of me for suggesting that Mr. Keyes has a chance to win, I’m sure some were just being polite.

I think we may all be surprised. Alan Keyes is an excellent candidate, and he may well take the position away from the annointed liberal Obama.

Keyes showed Obama was electable. Thanks, Alan Keyes!

To: Jim Robinson
thanks for the help!Obama is a very smooth and dangerous fellow.
Even if Alan doesen’t win,he will show the people just what Obama is.

2004-era Birthers! And 2004-ere Birther shootdowners!

Obama….He is likely to run for president in 2008
I thought that he was a “naturalized” citizen, therefore not eligible to run for President.

FreeRepublic…almost too liberal for ApesForEvolution

To: Jim Robinson
God bless you Jim, you and yours, richly, and Go Alan Go!

There is great hope alive at Free Republic! Man…I was this (*) close to writing FRoff…I couldn’t believe how FAR left THE RIGHT supposedly has moved, however, it really hasn’t – the GOP is obviously a centrist Party now.

However, it’s an influx of Liberal Moderates into the GOP precipitating friction against the Reagan Republicans and “American Sovereignty and Constitutional Representation” Conservative movement that seems so extremely wrong at the wrong time .. the Conservatives that brought us the “Contract With America” .. a HUGE, CONSERVATIVE SUCCESS which really made the current WH/House/Senate Republican Leadership ‘monopoly’ a possibility IMO.

Thank you for this post. The GOP better come together, or, yes, I believe that in order for a Civil War to happen in America, the GOP would probably have to have one first, which America can’t afford right now. The tables are tilting precariously on a high fulcrom point and we MUST MOVE RIGHT as a country, BUT WHO WILL LEAD THAT DIRECTION? ?? Someone has to or it’s a continuous drift left, until we are SLAPPED with a Carter or a Kerry…Good LORD…

communist crypto-Muhammadan Obamaosama infanticider – the best Obama nicknames are the ones invented years ago!

To: Gelato
Thankfully Alan’s ‘single issue’ position is so much more appealing than the communist crypto-Muhammadan Obamaosama infanticider…no blood on Alan’s hands, lots on Obamaosama’s hands…dead children’s blood.

Period. And you’ll never hear from Obama again!

To: Jim Robinson
“Barack Obama is an America hating, pro-abortion socialist communist.”
I posted the exact same sentence (almost IIRC) a couple weeks ago on a thread in defense of Keyes. Jim Rob thanks for ‘coming out’ for Alan.

btw, for those here NOT from IL, Obama IS a communist – period. You can dress him up, send him to school and have him talk nice, but he’s still a commie!

Oh, and he’s no ‘rising star’ either. That’s leftist media tripe. Obama’s a 3rd rate back bench state Rep from a 6th rate Chicago south side district. And if the IL senate seat didn’t look like “a given” prior to the RAT convention, you’d have NEVER heard of him.

Obama is a Nazi who needs to get carpetbagged. This is in 2004!

To: Sabertooth; All; Jim Robinson; EternalVigilance; ApesForEvolution; TomasUSMC; unspun; JustPiper; …
Sabertooth, I love you, man. But we really need you on the right side of this one (just as you were on the right side of the Cal Recall).
To all: It’s really this simple. By virtue of the fact that Obama has voted to let babies who were accidentally born be murdered, and by virtue of the fact that Keyes is fighting to prevent such murder, Obama is actually LESS qualified to serve as the Senator from Illinois than Keyes is.

Here’s my greater good analogy: The allied forces had a right, in fact an obligation, to conquer and REPLACE THE LEADERSHIP OF –or engaged in a “carpetbagging” of sorts– the Nazis in Germany.

In like manner, Keyes has a right to try to conquer Obama.

Furthermore, the left has been hypocritical and therefore has undermined any argument they have against carpetbagging, WHETHER OR NOT Keyes has spoken against it.

In short, Keyes is observing a greater good than Federalism, by fightin Obama’s holocaust.

Attention Philosophers and freepers: See “Hierarchicalism”, a.k.a “Graded Absolutism”, a.k.a. “greater good” –Aquinas, etc. Please make yourself familiar with the doctrine before responding.

George Soros, Osama names, Manchurian Candidate, all from 2004, all the same crazy arguments. Nothing has changed except the volume of crazy, soon it will be over 11.

To: Jim Robinson
Osama Obama is funded by George Soros, the international financial manipulator, destroyer and looter of entire countries, promoter of “gay rights”, Christian-hater, Serb-hater, Israel hater, kigpin of the New World Order, and perhaps the most dangerous man in the world. Obama is nothing more than a Manchurian Candidate, and even liberals in Illinois should refuse to vote for him if they value American independence and freedom even a little bit!
Soros is also behind the Kerry-supporting “MoveOn” organization. So the same applies to Kerry as well!

Don’t let Soros take his “patented” method of destroying Balkan nations and apply it to America!!!!

  1. Poor little Birthers (still in denial about their losses), but our Judges will continue to smack down the crazies .

    To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true (TOUGH WHEN YOU KEEP LOSING CASES), if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories.

    You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it.
    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme of clans; the Baggers, Birthers and Blowhards (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win in November. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    I wonder if Orly Taitz, is a mail order bride, just like her law degree? She is perfect reporter material for “Fake News”, where unfounded rumors and innuendo reign supreme, unlike a our US courts of law. The way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked lies, then, and only then, you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called facts that they present. Let’s face it no one will go along with you until you guys win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. A lawyer, dentist, realtor and black belt, WOW I must say a JACK of all trades master of none.

    I heard that Orly Taitz, now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, good luck with that.

    We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew their hate with lies.
