Freeps VILE Conclusions On How Sandy Impacts Election

The OP thinks God's helping Romney out because people in the storm's path, being without power, will be forced to listen to conservative talk radio. Seriously...

...Without electricity, many people will choose to stay in their homes or dank emergency shelters. Without working televisions, they'll drag out the extra blankets and fire up the furnace or the fireplace while they listed to the RADIO for news and emergency updates.

Yes, radio. Many homes still have some battery-powered radios, some attached to emergency flashlights, with which they will listen attentively since the batteries on their laptops and cell phones won't function very long without recharging.

Some undecideds and even a few frustrated liberals will sit through shows like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and possibly hear, for the first time, about stories the mainstream media has ignored or pooh-poohed and could inspire a few of them to not vote for four more years of Obama. Even if they are just miffed enough to not vote at all, that's probably a win for Romney.


It's like they don't know us at all, man! The responses are golden; A perfect little selection of the ugly on the other side of the aisle.

We have the bigot-

To: OrangeHoof
"What? No power? No TV? No Oprah? No View? And just what am I supposed to do for the next few days? Can't even charge up my Obamaphone! An' the 7-11 ain't accepting EBT cards. The hell? Obama...Obama sucks!

*accompanied by photo of AA woman


and the, um,...bigot-

Maybe Obama’s voters will be too busy looting to vote.


The poor student of science-

To: OrangeHoof
I prefer to think of it as God conducting an object lesson in exactly who really controls the ocean levels.


The even meaner poor student of science-

...These sodomite baby killers should be on their knees repenting for the way that they live. Bad storms have happened in many states with very sad results.....but this is the worst storm ever experienced in the the U.S.A. and to me it's a sign of the retribution for the way things have been going in our country.


The hateful-

Speaking of wash, it looks like NYC received a power wash and a blow dry. Hopefully, it gets rid of the pee smell.


And the oblivious-

To: OrangeHoof
No, I think it helps Obobo. Look for his encouraging words everyday. I expect to see him passing out relief supplies too.


(Why would anyone expect less of a president?)

1. The Cavefucks were rooting for liberals in the path of the storm to die a couple of days ago.

Fuck every last one of the ugly hyenas.

30. Its name is Gina. And yes, the sig pics are still there.

Even less surprisingly, many of them seem to find the whole thing quite amusing.

Of course, the thread I referred to where they fantasized about DU'ers dying in the storm appears to be wiped. I knew I should have screen captured that shit for later reference.

Oh, and best of all, they're slow to wake up to the fact that we can now discuss them and their hokey-assed websites more openly here.

I detect great potential for fun just ahead!

2. LOL! They can't imagine that some people would rather sit in silence than listen to RW talk radio?

Or that people would be more concerned about weather/storm damage updates?

I think we've been given some insight into how Freepers are created--because there are some people who are desperate to drown out the sound of their own thoughts.

5. Or react the same way that one guy I know the first time he heard Ingraham screeching.

"What the fuck is that harpy wailing about? She's sounds like someone's nightmare of a mother-in-law."

They drive away far more people than thay have as listeners.

29. Listening to talk radio would show them how hateful/extreme the right-wing really is. I don't think


most Romney voters among my acquaintances really know how extreme the GOP agenda is and they just vote for the repigs because they're "pro life" and maybe a little bit unconsciously racist. If they were to hear more than 5 minutes of the hateful, racist bullshit spouted by Limpballs or Micheal Savage it would probably turn them against the repigs... but they tune that out. Cognitive dissonance ya know.

When every single one of the comments has an underlying racist tinge. These people are fuckers, end of story.

7. To Be A Bit Spiteful Myself, Hurricane Sandy Is Testing Mitt's Theories With Real-Life Disaster

To be a bit spiteful myself, I think this hurricane is going to prove to be a political education for those right-wing and Republican voters living in the mountainous and rural areas still being hit by Hurricane Sandy. As many of those Republican-voting folks are finding out, how well is "big government" disaster relief working out for them? And how well would they fare if such relief WASN'T there?

And I'm sure that in the backs of at least some of their minds, I'm sure that at least a few are wondering just how appropriate and wise Mitt's "Turn disaster relief back over to the states and the private sector" rhetoric would be if such ideas were implemented in the real world.

This is a real super-storm with real rain, real snow, and real flooding. Just how well does it match right-wing polemics and theorizing? I hope that the "rugged individualists" and wanna-be privateers are soiling their underwear at the thought of having to face natural disasters with the sort of "relief" their "anti-big gummint" pet politicians would give them.

13. wondrin the same here.

along with the simple fact that NJ, Del, NY, PA, WVA and the rest certainly don't have a little piggy bank where they've put aside pennies to pay for such a strong storm and its related damage.

How many rugged individualists do you know that live on the 45th floor of a New York high rise?

19. Those Aren't The Guys Who Are Getting Their Ideas Tested

With the exceptions of a slice of financial traders, lawyers, and real-estate types in the big cities, I suspect that the folks currently finding out if their are congruent with reality are people out in the rugged, mountainous parts of western New York state and Pennsylvania's Appalachian and Allegheny mountains. Those folks tend to vote Republican, tend to be right-wing, and put guys like Tom Corbett in the Pennsylvania governor's mansion and derivatives-trading Club-for-Growther Pat Toomey in the US Senate.

8. Except most people will listen to their local news simulcast on the radio.

I wrote down the call numbers for my local channel 4 news last night just in case we lost power.

Freepers are so behind the times. If you can listen to your local news giving updates on power outages, flooding, safety issues, etc. you are not going to turn into Rush. People want to get back home or if they are home want info about the storm.

12. And if the Right Wingie-Dingies Run True To Pattern, They'll Be Blackguarding Relief Recipients As

And if the right wing-dingies run true to pattern, they'll be blackguarding the dazed and battered survivors of Sandy's rain, flooding, snow, and ruin as un-American, lazy, welfare-mooching degenerates. If the talk show hosts' bad karma comes around, the dazed and battered survivors will hear themselves being slandered on the air by the talk-show hosts they listened to and (formerly) trusted.

20. New York Isn't Bumfuck...

The city has two ALL NEWS radio stations...no rushbo or venom...just information and traffic on the 8s. The last thing someone sitting in the dark and wanting to hear if the world is still spinning are worthless blowhards. In fact WABC dropped their usual hate-filled format for storm coverage. Sorry, no indoctrination.

And I imagine it is. Most stations are Clear Channel and all the radio is local news and emergency broadcasting for days until things start to get back to normal. All those talk shows are off the air for a time.
