The Conservative ‘ReaganBook’ Gets Seriously Trolled By ‘Ayn Randy’ and ‘Ben Ghazi,’ and ‘Al Zheimers’

Conservatives are forever looking for some way to seclude themselves from the internet so they can engage in their persecution fantasies without the intrusion of reality and it’s well known liberal-bias. The latest example of this, ReaganBook, was designed to be just such a place, according to the site itself:

Thank you to all those who participated in the pre-release of ReaganBook.com Your participation is helping us build a more secure site. Thank you! Please be patient while we make the necessary changes to keep the site free from obscenity, [adult content], and those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family. We will be opening the doors again soon with additional protections in place. As Reagan taught us, trust, but verify.

Sounds like serious stuff. “Those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family;” it makes you wonder who these evil people are, because they certainly aren’t liberals. Here’s a screen shot of the  home page:

And as of Thursday, if you go the page, you’ll notice that’s the only thing you get. It doesn’t matter which of the links you click on.

That’s because the site was overrun with multiple fake accounts the day that it was created, including ones for Vladimir Putin, Sarah Palin, and Manuel Noriega. The onrush of trolls — which was one of the things that the site was designed to avoid — eventually resulted in the whole site being taken offline. Hence, the boilerplate.

ArsTechnica reports on the background of “ReaganBook:”

ReaganBook is the work of Janet Porter, an Ohio Republican and founder of “pro-life, pro-advocacy” group Faith 2Action, according to The Daily Beast. The site, pitched as “Facebook for patriots,” officially opened Tuesday and attracted such personalities as “Ben Ghazi, “Al Zheimers,” “Ayn Randy,” “Zombie Reagan,” and “Ronald Reagan” himself. Users also created group pages for the band Slayer, “Cut Dicks for Christ,” and various types of  [adult] content, wrote The Daily Beast.

According to the Daily News, Porter claims that Facebook has kicked off conservative groups like Americans for the Truth About Homosexuality, for broadcasting “pro-family” (just not gay family) values. In response to this, Porter had promised that Republicans could roam free on Reaganbook. But when the site launched on Wednesday morning, conservatives weren’t the only thing running free.

No word on whether or not goats were involved.

    The paragraph listed sounds like religious writing with Reagan as god.

  • James Leno

    I’m still trying to wrap my head around this…

    They are using an open medium (the internet) to create a closed forum (ReaganBook). Then when they open their closed forum to the internet, they are forced to close it, because of the internet’s openness.

    This site is already a parody of itself. The creators of it just don’t know yet.

    “That’s because the site was overrun with multiple fake accounts the day that it was created.”

    Good to see that the right wingers aren’t the only ones that can do this. It was only until Operation American Spring that they saw their fruits of their fail from creating multiple accounts and tricking each other into thinking there were more than 10 million of them.

    Oh, I love this!

    Why are they celebrating a racist and traitor (see: Iran-Contra)? As a destroyer of life, liberty and the family with his trickle down policy of pissing down our backs and telling us it’s raining there have been few worse than him. Sadly, that included our last president who won twice through out and out fraud.

    ROFLMBO!!! There IS a God, and she is good! Couldn’t happen to nastier folks!

    funny, but…hey! let ‘em post what they want and advocate what they will. once they’re up and running i’m sure there will be enough to ridicule, make fun of and whatever. of course, then they can start screaming that they’re being persecuted by the demon left and don the martyr’s robe as is so often the case of those on the right. puh-leez! they have no idea what real persecution is. it’s simply they can dish it out by the truck-load, but when it comes to being able to take it in return, they’re, as mrs slocum (‘are you being served’. hey! watch pbs once in a while!) says, “weak as water. WEAK AS WATER!!!”.

      I can’t wait to see them argue with each other.

        i’ll bring the popcorn!
