Somehow someone from Gretawire got into the Newshound forum page and copied the conservation.They seem worried
by Greta Van Susteren
I have fought for the First Amendment both as a lawyer and in my current job…I have not deleted nasty comments about me here on GretaWire because of my devotion to the First Amendment …I have, however, deleted racist comments but the truth is deleting them is a full time job and I can’t do it as I don’t have the time. I already do GretaWire alone and the task of sorting postings is overwhelming — to give you an idea, we should hit 40,000,000 hits today or tomorrow. So I am perplexed what to do.. I really don’t understand why some are such pigs. I do understand a difference in opinion on issues and policy….but racial discrimination?? Or gender discrimination which is another giant problem?? What’s with that? Any thought??
The racism there is getting worse and worse.
Greta has just made a post on what to do about it.
Here's a little ditty I copied just the other day

Why should Obama’s niglets be defended ? Look how the Dems. treated the Palin children. The niglets will get the same treatment
I just love your language, Joan. You sound just like my father. Keep up the good work.
What is the definition of a niglet?
The term “niglets” has been around for many years. When I was young, the black children called us chicklets, and we called them niglets.
Yes, but children dont know any better, unless their parents teach them right from wrong. Just because the terms have been around for many years does not mean that they should be used.
Children are off-limits, please.
You talking about the two little niglets soon to be roaming the White House?"
I posted a thread here a week or so ago about Team Sarah being infiltrated by, "Left Wingers" and this carried over to Gretawire. It quickly turned into every racist post was made by a secret liberal doing it. Which is clearly not the case. Many regulars were posting racist comments and rarely were they chided by other posters. The other excuse they used was race baiters are causing the problems. However, race baiters don't make you racist. YOU make yourself racist.
It should be interesting to see how they play this. The obvious guess is that Liberals will be blamed for all the racist posts. Kid Funkedelic in particular, that guy drives the Gretawire bloggers insane.
Anyway, here's the link:

Yup, I think it's the one and the same Kid Funkadelic.
Thank you Ellen.
BTW there has been an update:
"a short term fix — flagging
by Greta Van Susteren
We are putting in to GretaWire a flagging procedure so that you all can police each other…it should be working very soon…so flag the racism, or porn etc"
which of course will not work because all it takes is a goofball or two to start flagging every comment or people flagging someone's comments because they have a grudge match going on.

You might find this hard to believe, but I actually heard a Catholic priest use that word when he was talking to other priests. They were in a private living room at the time I overheard it. It may have been around for a while but still exceedingly ignorant.

What is name jackers?Is it when someone use your name?
Yes, and they usually make vile racist or vulgar comments when they do it. People who blog here alot realize when someone’s name has been jacked, but those who don’t are shocked. There are people who come to Greta’s blog just to stir up hate and argue with people. Most are liberals who think it’s funny to turn Greta’s blog into a trashy site. There are even some liberal sites who send out bloggers to conservative sites and try to bait people into saying racist and sexist things. Some have been caught doing it lately and reported to the FCC..
Was Haloscan one of them…..someone was on here one day, asking people from here to go there and see what terrible things people were sayins about Greta Wire

if you should decide to do a post on this, I gotta warn you that the Gretawire folks will be here with a quickness. Prepare for an onslaught of crazy posts and even crazier people.
This is no joke.

the Flags are a bad idea, this was tried before, as people will just flag every comment or blogger they don’t like regardless of content.

What difference does it make if your white or your black?. I have been reading these
post a long time and I have come to the conclusion, that a lot of the black people
are ” maybe” more moral then some whites"
Really went out on a limb with that one.

So, let me guess--after that post 10 people replied calling Florida Lady a koolaid drinking Obamabot Dumbocrat?

I know who Kid Funkadelic is….Kid Funkadelic is actually 5-7 guys that go to school in Illinois and are part of an offshoot from Acorn and the Young Progressive Democrats. I wont say any of their names but just know that their goal/mission is to Hijack all the Popular Blogs on the ‘net. They have hit all the sites that are or have favorable fans of Sarah Palin. They change the subject, usually to Racism every time in the hopes that you will say something bad about Obama being black and then save the screenshots as proof in the hopes of discrediting whomever they oppose, in this case Sarah who runs again in 2010 for re-election, they will send the negative/rascist comments to the press along with their proof (screenshots) to any and all who will listen to show that Palin supporters and yes, conservatives/republicans are rascist bigots. Do not fall for this. do not engage in his rhetoric. Kid Funkadelic will go away and re-emerge as another name and try the same tactic again and again. Remember, the goal is to get you off topic and bait you. I know…Im a former member. Yes I quit the group doing this but not out of morals (by working w/ them I proved I have none) but because they owe me money.
Team Sarah fans will take care of Sarah. We are not afraid.
