Conservatives create Reaganbook Internet playground to occupy bored snarky liberals
UPDATED: Damn librulz done broked teh Internet:
“Thank you to all those who participated in the pre-release of
ReaganBook.com Your participation is helping us build a more secure
site. Thank you! Please be patient while we make the necessary changes
to keep the site free from obscenity, pornography, and those intent on
the destruction of life, liberty, and the family. We will be opening
the doors again soon with additional protections in place. As Reagan
taught us, trust, but verify.
Well done, you guys.
While conservatives have their hands full setting up the 2016 Tea Party/GOP Hunger Games Primary which will anoint the latest in a line of candidates saddled with all the bigoted, misogynistic, homophobic, racist baggage they can carry, Democrats and liberals are just chilling this summer, making bank on impeachment chit-chat and secure in the knowledge that they have Hillary tan, rested, and ready.
How bad is the Republican field? Well, it has progressed from one of those contrarian Slate pitches to the word made flesh, meaning they couldn’t be any more doomed if Bill Kristol predicted a fifty-state electoral vote sweep.
Four potential GOP candidates receive double-digit backing among self-identified Republicans: former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Gov. Perry each garner 12 percent, while Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul comes in at 11 percent and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie follows at 10 percent.
The poll finds Clinton would top Christie by 10 points, Paul by 11 points and Bush by 13 points, if the 2016 presidential election were held today. Clinton bests Kasich by 19 points.
…and that is a Fox poll.
So one would think conservatives, faced with herculean task in front of them, wouldn’t have time to extend a hand across the aisle and provide hours of entertainment to liberals by creating a communal space where absolutely anyone can go to share the latest in conservative news such as places to go if you want to scream at immigrant children, open carry demonstrations, or how to get the gubmint to pay for your Hoveround.
Yes, welcome to the world of ReaganBook, a “Facebook for Patriots,” because the real Facebook is racist against the 1st amendment and unpopular opinions like pictures of the White House lawn strewn with watermelons, pictures of Obama with a bone through his nose, or Michelle Obama as a wookie.
You know: the issues of the day.
Porter lamented that “while tomorrow Facebook employees are gathering to go march at the gay pride parade in San Francisco,” they are censoring people with “unpopular opinions.”
She then described ReaganBook as a social network that tears down walls like President Reagan.
“We’re tearing down walls of tyranny and censorship,” she said.
And anyone can join! Just go to the website and sign up. All you need is a screen-name – use your real name or maybe your gang name, porn name, or butched-up Latinate conservative blogger name like Tacitus Non Est Disputandum or some-such… have fun with it! — and next thing you know, you’ll be sharing bon mots and tidbits with like-minded people, including the latest in Obama conspiracy rumors, like Friends of Hamas or how chemtrails are to blame for the increase in homosexuality because, back when Reagan was president, nobody was gay.
Be forewarned though, there is a trick question to get you through the door:
If you can answer “what color is the ocean,” you are not a bot.
Or Reagan in his second term…
