Teabaggers start their own ":Social networking" community

[bold] Tea Party Community, Conservative Facebook Alternative, Set To Launch [/bold]

Organizers of new social networking site The Tea Party Community have taken Facebook, eliminated the supposed liberal bullying, tossed in tens of thousands of conservatives and mixed it all together with a dash of conspiracy theory to create a new online hub, set to launch officially on Saturday.

The Tea Party Community co-founder Ken Crow tells Fox News, he wants to make it the Facebook alternative for conservatives and the Tea Party movement.

So far, it has drawn upward of 50,000 members, attracted to what Crow calls a “safe haven for the conservative movement where we can share ideas and thoughts and express ourselves without fear of retribution.”

Crow claims that he and other conservatives have been targeted by Facebook and its liberal users simply for attempting to express their political point of view.

“Most of us are subjected to censorship on Facebook,” Crow told Fox News. “I’ve been suspended there as have many of my friends. You also absorb a lot of abuse from liberals.”

While there have been high-profile examples of Facebook removing or threatening to remove conservative-leaning content, Facebook claims to not be involved in any intentional censorship of content.

Some Tea Party activists might be all too familiar with the content Facebook allows.

In Virginia, the Mecklenburg Tea Party drew statewide backlash last year when it refused to remove a series of Facebook photos depicting President Barack Obama as a witch doctor, neanderthal and thug. In that case, the pressure came from the Virginia GOP, not Facebook.

And in 2011, a failed Tea Party candidate unleashed a racial epithet-laden Facebook post that called for the assassination of Obama and his family. The poster later took down the message under his own accord and replaced it with an apology.

As for The Tea Party Community, the website could draw some scrutiny from a design perspective. The basic page layout looks remarkably similar to Facebook's, with a little more in-your-face patriotism sprinkled around the frills.

Too bad they won't confine themselves to this instead of invading every liberal site's commenting section to spew their hateful nonsense.

I don't know why they make it so easy for us to laugh at them.

This is going to be a third-rate enterprise and a cesspool at best. Ripe for all kinds of backlash, and ripe for the mocking.

Sadly, I have one gay friend that is so politically conservative, he thinks the Tea Party is not conservative enough.

He is more of a friend of a friend, but I just don't get you conservative gays when most anti-gay stuff comes from the conservatives.

The excuse is that they just don't vote on one issue. Really? Sorry not, your one issue is money. So if we take financial things off the table, what are you still voting for?

r11, social status, approval from their parents and friends, etc.

These people are mentally stuck in high school where it's highly important to not stick out from the general public at all so that you can pick on those who do stick out.

Finally a place for them to express their racist, homophobic and anti-intellectual views freely.
