I read FR daily. What with all the noise over here with GBCW and TTFN, I was surprised to see that FR is getting some of the same.
But this post is thoughtful and insightful about what is wrong with Freepers. No wonder this long time Freeper is bailing out of the nuthouse. Of course, the comments are classic Freep.
Here is the link: It is time. My opus
But I've posted parts of the post below the break.
The racism: I can't handle it anymore.
Homosexuality: FR is on the wrong side of history
Mostly though, it's the hate.And now some of the comments:

I've seen only one instance of racism here on Free Republic and that was back in summer 2009 when some moronic pictures and cartoons were posted about Obama's family (and his children) when they vacationed in France. The mods were quick on the draw and pulled the offensive thread.
Then the truth came out. The racist pictures and comments were the acts of leftist infiltrators trying to disrupt this site. It was clear that they weren't genuine FReepers. That one incident aside, Free Republic is perhaps the most non-racist site on the web
