    My first verbal altercation with a Freeper....

    Edited on Sun Oct-31-10 03:58 PM by Kang Colby
    So….the other day (Saturday morning) I was out running errands. I stopped by the bank and then I realized that I was all out of OJ. This was something that needed to be remedied ASAP, as I was preparing a brunch for some friends and family later that day. My plan was to prepare some cantaloupe slices, eggs, bacon, toast, English muffin pizzas, and a small pot of oyster stew. No problem there, all of the essentials were waiting to be prepared @ home. I was just slam out of OJ.

    So off to the grocery store I went. I swear, my plan was only to grab OJ. Well, I hadn’t yet eaten breakfast…so you can only imagine how that went, lol. Before long my cart was full of multi grain Fig Newtons, whole grain chips, almond milk, habaneras, and a ton of organic frozen stuff from Amy’s (my all time fav.) While I was in the cereal aisle there were two parents (presumably mom and dad) and their 2 kids…probably about 4 or 5 years of age. The kid’s were clearly getting on their parent’s last nerve. Screaming, throwing stuff from the cart, etc.,etc. You could tell mom and dad were at their wit’s end. I felt bad for the couple, obviously young and in-experienced. The mom had an Obama ’08 hoodie on as well – so I gave them the benefit of the doubt.

    While the parent’s were busy attending to their youngsters; they were too busy to notice that their two grocery carts were blocking my access (and several others) to the stuff on the shelves. “No biggie”, I thought to myself. I just decided to patiently wait. Well, along comes this blue haired old freeper and she jerks the parents cart away from the shelf and grabs some oatmeal. The mother of the children, apologized to the old bagger repeatedly once she noticed she was obstructing access to the shelves. The old freeper looked at her with a grimace, let out a groan and was on her way down the aisle. Clearly, she wanted to make a mountain out of a mole hill.
    As she gets to the end of the cereal aisle, she begins to tell other customers, “don’t bother trying to shop, two kids are throwing a fit up that aisle! Those kids need some stern discipline! I’m sure their mother would rather have the State take care of rearing her children.” Then I heard her mutter the usual about food stamps, socialism, and Obama.

    While reading some of the posts on DU, you’d think that this sort of thing was more common – but I can count on one hand how often I’ve seen freeperisms in public. To say I was shocked would be the least. The customers she was yelling towards were mostly silent, a few let out some uneasy chuckles.

    A few minutes later as I was headed towards the cashier, who did I see picking up her prescriptions at the pharmacy? None other than the blue haired limbo-ette. Before paying for her medicine, I noticed she pulled a card from her wallet – clearly labeled “Part D”. As I walked past her, she noticed me and said, “ I feel sorry for their children, there is clearly no-parenting in that household”. Deciding to be witty, I pointed to her medicine and said, “ I feel sorry for you, forced to enjoy the fruits of socialism and all. The hypocrisy must be difficult to deal with.”…..She didn’t say a word as I headed towards the check-out.

    Thanks to DU! I’m proud to report that I am 1-0 against the Freepers.

    on edit: Has anyone else been emboldened by DU to speak truth to power when faced with a Freeper?
    Wow.....What a hero!! (heavy sarcasm)

    5. OMG, your first?!


    A freeper-altercation virgin. You done good. ;)

    I feel that's all I do anymore, is engage the Freepers, Beckheads, Palinites, Dittoheads, etc. They're all the same obviously.

    Even within my own family. :(

    It gets exhausting, so use your energy wisely.

    9. I hope so!

    I did it with a smile on my face, and a half joking tone....does that mean I score extra points? She looked as if she had the wind knocked out of her....perfect timing it was.
    And the DUmmies are all hero worshiping her.

    Long winded ( who the Hell cares about your bunch menu).

    Picking senior citizens.

    Two super powers; knowing someone's political beliefs before they state them and super hearing ( how else can you hear what someone says under their breath at the other end of the aisle).

    And why didn't you closeline the old lady and have everyone in the store cheer you.

    Notice how none of these people run into truck drivers, cops, military folks, hunters, lumberjacks, cowboys, or anyone else who could kick their wimp ass for getting their face.

    Not just one, TWO "So's." You are more a Bouncy virgin than "freeper-altercation virgin.

    The OP needs a few pointers for future reference:

    There is way too much detail in this encounter. The sheer number of irrelevant observations makes this look like a completely false story.

    People in grocery stores don't "wait patiently" while children and their parents clog up access to the aisles. Everybody's time is important and a lot of people shop between work and some other errand. It's the norm for people to move an unattended cart or to ask the cart user to move it.

    A huge number of people over 50 are AARP members and as such, voters for Democrat causes. Age is not an indicator of party affiliation. Also, blue rinses for eldery women have been out of fashion and pretty much unknown outside of nursing home beauty shops since the 80s. This is another irrelevant "fact' that points to the false nature of the story.

    The conversation from the "freeper" also doesn't ring true. As a real Freeper myself, I can tell you that I don't consider retail transactions and encounters to be a useful time for political education. Not only am I busy (like everyone else) but political, sexual, religious, or parenting exchanges with strangers is a waste of time and potentially dangerous. It's the kind of thing that unemployed, young men do to fill up the empty hours of the day.

    I give this 1 bong for composition and use of language.

    Gets at least 1 bong for starting with "So..." I"m tempted to give it two bongs for the trailing periods.

    Do you guys really believe these people make up all these stories? I mean I know a lot of what they say is bullshit (just like a lot of what is said on this site is bullshit), but do you guys really believe they invent these stories just to post them on a website?

    For the record, I've had plenty of encounters with hard-right folk (it comes with having Left wing views in Texas), it's not that unusual.

    Also, Ginger, by Freeper, do you mean free republic? That god-awful website filled with extremely explicit and overt racism and hatred?

    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
