ReaganBook.com, the serious conservative’s alternative to Facebook, launched yesterday with high hopes and heavy mockery, only to have the dream of an online conservative utopia crushed by a mob of giddy trolls. The website was meant to combat what many conservatives dubbed as “liberal censorship” at Facebook, purporting to be a place for conservatives to practice free speech without censorious moderation.

As a free speech haven, Reagan Book was successful, although clearly not in the way its founders intended. Curious visitors, 4Chan members, redditors and twitterers all flocked to the website to register, set up their very own conservative profiles, and begin making new fake Tea Party friends. The website, it seemed, was lost to the trolls and the Poes before it took its first fake registration.

From profiles to events, to blogs and discussion, no corner of the website was left un-trolled.

By early Wednesday afternoon, the Facebook replacement for the Fox News crowd became a dial-up level of slow, even as trolls continued to upload what appeared to be an enormous collection of gay porn, tributes to Putin, and event plans with their new friends.

Around 2:40 PM EST, ReaganBook.com  closed down for maintenance. It’s unclear if, or when, it will re-open to the public.

    This is hilarious. Reminded me of when the NYPD asked for pictures of their good works, and then they got trolled with pictures of police misconduct, abuse, beatings and various other pictures of misconduct.

    • Hypatia

      It made me sad — the website went down while I was in the middle of screen capping the hilarious stuff, so I had to roll with what I got. But it made me happy, because it was epically hilarious and at least I got the caps on this page

  • Mawm

    They only want the “free speech” they prefer.

    • Reagan Blues

      Yes, true, the only the speech they prefer, which is more like reliving past glories, speeches of Reagan’s comedic one liners, waxing prophetic over his birth and life and times. Pictures pf porn though, no, they don’t want that, even though they secretly get off on it.

        Plz sic reddit or 4chan on SarahPalinChannel.com? That would be too funny.

        • This would be so wonderful!! Somebody should suggest to their marketing people that a free trial is in order!

  • Graveborn

  • Proud Aryan Tea Party Patriot

    i wonder if some of the monies OBUMMER got for illegals and SOROS and the SEIU paid for those trolls to shut down that website????

    • James

      I cannot figure out if you’re a Poe or a real person.

      • See how that works?

      Proud Aryan Tea Party Patriot. You’re proud of being a cowardly inbred ammosexual racist bigoted freak. You’re the scum of the earth and waste of human flesh.
