Someone Needs to Spend a Little Time on FreeRepublic.com

A new Slog reader is very, very, very angry. No, not angry. Disappointed. Just like mom. Anyway:
I’m new to looking through the SLOG (as in only a couple of days) and I’m already disgusted by you people. Permit me a little diatribe here:
For all the uber-liberal claims and pompous “we’re the most open-minded people around” speak I hear out of the vast majority of you I have yet once read anything even remotely approaching fair or balanced (yes, I chose those words purposefully for their irony).
I am truly disgusted by the unabashed filth, slander and hate-speak out of your collective mouths. There is no intelligent discussion or legitimate criticism on here at all—it’s complete trash. And by trash I mean exactly that; majoratively untrue garbage slung at anything resembling moderate or god forbid, Republican. Partner that with the absolutely blind defense of anyone whose politics you agree with and I see the most stunningly closed-minded people I’ve ever encountered, and I’ve lived in many places in this country you people would claim to be backwards.
Has it not ocurred to you all that your hate for others and your unwillingness to accept other viewpoints (or even listen to them without screaming obsenities) is exactly what you claim so vehemently of the other side of the political spectrum? You should all be ashamed of yourselves for perverting the world with all of this bile.
This was tacked on to my post about Pat Robertson endorsing Rudy Giuliani because, I’m guessing, I called Robertson a “Talibangelist.” Robertson, of course, calls me & mine the bringers of hurricanes, the causers of 9/11s, the offenders of God, wocka, wocka, wocka. Imaginary God forbid that I should suggest that Robertson is an old, withered, corrupt religious bigot.
