I seriously love shooting down discussions on FreeRepublic.

I have an account there, and I put out inconvenient facts that bring down discussions and pretty much end them.
Tonight, some funny ( ) person put out a satire post about Japanese people fearing a backlash after Pearl Harbor, trying to tie Charlie Hebdo to all Muslims. People were posting back and forth for a while with things like
"Donít Blame Japanese for Pearl HarboróIt was japanese airplanes that bombed our ships! You canít blame the whole Island full of people. FDR must send a peace committee to work out new terms and foreign aid to the Japanese Empire."
and
"America has been calling Japanese products cheap and inferior for years . . . Pearl Harbor was just a natural response to such blatant disrespect."

Is it hilarious? Is it racist? Hilaracist?

My reply to the thread was: "Well, considering between 110,000 and 120,000 people of Japanese descent were interned in the U.S., maybe some fear of backlash was warranted."

1. Why would you do that to yourself?

3. Because there are only so many threads on LBN and GD

and I need something else to read between calls at my tech support job.
Plus I like the idea of someone saying "Yeah, well, uh, hmmm... nevermind."

6. I suspect they'll ban you before long

Perhaps because you're from DU (which they stalk with some regularity) but more likely because they ban anybody who comes within a few miles of making sense.

12. there's a DU member who claims..

.....to be a 10-year troll over there. The only way a Democrat could do that would be to NOT tell them the truth about anything, but just to assimilate. Kind of weird.
