Subject:  Why Do Libs FA Posts? Date:  12/11/2012  1:41 PM

Libs fancy themselves and the most understanding, inclusive of all views, and tolerant people on the planet. Yet, when they read something with which they disagree (translation: a truthfull utterence by a conservative), they get their panties in a ringer and go crying to mommy to have such views censored.

I think I've FA'd 1 or 2 posts and that was just to demonstrate that TMF wouldn't remove the post when it said essentially the same thing I did, or used a naughty unpolitically correct word. I FA'd them to learn what a double standard TMF has because they are decidedly liberal, at least the censors are.

But why do the most tolerant people in the world who often crow about being willing to fight for someone's right to say what they think, even if they disgree with it or if it offensive, always run as fast as they can to mommy to have those ideas removed?

I know most conservatives rarely, if ever, FA posts that are far worse than the posts they write.

I know, it's their sandbox, they make the rules, blah, blah, blah.

Oops, just challenging them is likely to get this post FA'd.

So frickin' be it!
