In Wake Of Health Care Bill Passing, GOP’s Website Goes Insane

Look out, because the Republican Party has gone crazy and activated Code Red in response to the passing of the health care bill. Right now, GOP.com leads you to a picture of Nancy Pelosi burning in hell, and asks for your assistance in creating a “Tweet Bomb” to destroy her.

    A “Tweet Bomb”? Somebody call the Internet Police. This sounds like a DoS attack against the federal government! Guantanamo for Michael Steele!

        Poly, if we had to ban every comment that used foul language, I'm not sure how many comments we'd have : )

        In all seriousness, I think the reason your experience with the new site differs from the old one is because we have many more visitors now. Believe it or not, the old site wasn't as regulated as it might have appeared, and with more visitors one would expect a wider variety of opinion, even crude and offensive ones.

        We try to keep as open an environment as possible because of a concept of having a “free marketplace of ideas” in the sense that John Stuart Mill or Thomas Jefferson thought about. So it means we allow some crude and inarticulate language at times, but we hope that the more well-thought and articulate comments would get more attention.

        What you didn't reproduce from honu here, is the first part of his comment about the Republicans acting like crybabies now after eight years of recent presidential power and a congressional majority from 1994 to 2006. Of course that's not how he put it, but we can't control how ideas are expressed.

        That may be completely off the point of what the health care bill/law was about in your opinion, but it's an opinion.

        I hope you can find people here to engage on the site. Dealing with crude (or even offensive) language is certainly a challenge, but we are trying to be as open as possible. That idea may change as the site grows, and we definitely need the feedback from regular visitors on this, in comment form our an email to the site:

        I do think about what Jefferson said below. A website allows the access, as he said “Every man should receive those papers,” but it's the “capable of reading them” that is certainly more challenging for those who are operating a public forum.

        “The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.” –Thomas Jefferson

        Poly i think you need to realize this site is a lib tard mecca and also the site dose no good for waking people up. They mix in real news with this space alien crap giving people the idea there real new stories are phony as well. DISINFO your site will never be king people come join the real liberty movement visit INFOWARS.COM.

  • Polymorpheous

    umm… it makes no mention of “burning in hell”
    the fire graphic in the back ground has to do with the large font that reads “FIRE PELOSI” (duh.)
    way to spin.

    this site is really going downhill fast… :(

    • http://disinfo.com Majestic

      Hey Poly, there's all sorts of diverse content posted on the site, much of it conflicting. How about posting some material of your own? You are an approved contributor and we'd be pleased to see your voice and views on the site.

      • Polymorpheous

        i used to all the time.
        i mourn the old site.

        • http://disinfo.com Majestic

          You know, what's published on the site is really a function of who is contributing. If your favorite writers are posting elsewhere, then you know where to look. Otherwise I'd suggest contributing material you'd like to view on the site yourself and perhaps encouraging others whose taste you like to do so too. Thanks!

          • Polymorpheous

            it's not so much the stories, (though they have been not as interesting as of late), but the discussions that really disappoint.

          • http://disinfo.com Majestic

            Do you mean the discussion in comments? Not much we can do about the quality of that so long as we have open commenting. Should we require registration and approval of comments? I'm interested to hear what the community thinks about that.

          • Polymorpheous

            “Should we require registration and approval of comments? I'm interested to hear what the community thinks about that.”

            i don't like the way this conversation is panning out. you're implying things that i made no suggestion of. this is disappointing. no need to discuss further.

            you also make no mention, (or retort of my comment), of the fact that you took the liberty of injecting the phrase “pelosi burning in hell” in your story when it is nowhere mentioned nor implied on the link. you are purposely linking the GOP with the religious right. this only serves to further the divide in this country.

            Comments do not require approval. We of course have a spam filter, and sometimes comments unintentionally get flagged by that, but we do publish comments that are not spam. We believe it's important to have an uncensored discussion.

            It's up to the author of this article to response to your comment. Since we have multiple authors on the site, not every author does right away, but we do ask every contributor to engage with commenters.

          • Polymorpheous

            once upon a time you had to have an account @ disinfo to post comments.
            i find the comments of registered members to be poignant and well argued.
            the unregistered members for the most part, not so much.

            once upon a time, i used to post stories nearly everyday.
            again, not so much anymore. i'd post a story to stimulate intelligent discussion. not some shmuck typing in all caps talking about, “FUCK CHENEY!”, or some other such stupidity.
            reminds me of the one yahoo on the old site who would always comment about killing the arabs and power to israel.

            just giving you feedback on what i think of the new site. i still love the books.

          • http://disinfo.com Majestic

            Ah, I understand now (I think), you're talking about what the contributor who posted this story wrote. Just to be clear, that person writes whatever he wants to write, we don't edit the stories for content whether we agree with them or not (although very occasionally we do decline to run a story altogether, but that's almost always because the writing is poor or topic inappropriate for this site (Indian escorts, etc.)). We plan to keep open commenting and appreciate your comments, especially when you point out bias as you did initially in this thread. We'll hope you keep doing so. Thanks.

      Sure, is doesn't explicitly say that, but I'm not surprised some people would interpret it that way. Lots of political advertising is intended to convey meanings that are not explicitly stated.

      Sometimes it's even intended to have varying meanings for different audiences.

      The question (which the creator of this ad won't reveal anytime soon) is whether he/she wanted people to think Pelosi was burning is hell.

    • WAKINGLIFE

      Poly i think you should realize that this site fits its name DISINFO. People if you want to read good articles that point out both the GOP and DNC 's evils visit INFOWARS.COM.

  • ReactionaryEsotericist

    @Polymorpheous: Yes, it seems to be just another boring lefty blog now. Some people just can't see the walls of their reality tunnels I guess.

    • F@#! the LIBTARDS

      Funny how the left wing retards don't see there god Obama-tard is just continuing bushes practices.

  • BklynKat

    sad….truly sad…time for GOP to go AWAY!

  • BklynKat

    sad….truly sad….it's time, the GOP should pack up and GO AWAY!!!

    • WAKINGLIFE

      and bring the DNC with you we want liberty!!!!

    Am I the only one who imagines Suicidal Tendencies' “Send Me Your Money” as the soundtrack to this image?

    You know what pisses me off about republicans? They tend to be right for the wrong reasons. If they ever made a coherent argument about anything maybe someone would listen to them. They're losing their shit over a bill that insurance companies signed off on. This bill was like something a republican would pass and they have the gall to bitch about it? Are they insane, lying or just stupid?

    • Polymorpheous

      or they just used this bill to manipulate the public and further the political divide in this country.
      neither side really understood what they were for or against.

    I am a Canadian. It is so odd to me to see the furor that a national, socialized health-care system has caused amoung mostly well-to-do white conservative American citizens. They have always had good health-care but don't seem willing to extend the benefit of quality health care to the less fortunate. Any country that can afford two wars, dozens of military bases around the world, a huge nuclear arms arsenal, the world's largest and most expensive prison system and military (both fully socialized) can afford health care for all it's citizens.
    We have a health care system here in Canada that seems to work for everyone. In my family it has delivered great benefits for many years. We love it, as does any fellow Canadian I have talked to. You don't have to worry about bankruptcy or huge debt when you get sick. The system is fully modern, up to date, advanced and available to all. All you need is to show your health care card and the rest is free. Sure we pay more taxes but the extra taxes are worth it, by far. It's a great deal and a fine example of how social cooperation can work in the service of all citizens.

    Maybe the President should have called it something else like the war against getting sick.
