Conservative Extremist Janet Porter Launches 'ReaganBook, the Facebook for Patriots': VIDEO

Noted young earth creationist, homophobe, and opposer of the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007 Janet Porter is building the Reagan-themed social network that the country has been clamoring for.

ReaganBookReaganbook--so clever--is a digital gathering space designed to help facilitate discussion and community organizing around conservative social issues. Citing our 40th president’s civic ethos Reaganbook implores its users not to “Grant your social media any power to collect, sell, exploit and divulge your private information.”

One might think that creating the infrastructure to sustain a social network would be a daunting task requiring an impressive amount of technical knowhow and coding skills. One would be wrong. Reaganbook’s current “About Us” and “Policy” pages are still populated with lorem ipsum dummy text, and the beginnings of what seems to be a grocery list, respectively. Still though, the site currently boasts a growing userbase of over 1400 people, and fun quizzes such as: Who Said It: “Reagan or Hitler?

“It’s the e-mail, it’s the Facebook for patriots.” Porter explained to a crowd at the Ohio Liberty Coalition’s Reload 4 Liberty event. “We’re tearing down walls. Get it?”

We totally get it. Registration is open to the public and will absolutely, positively in no way, shape, or form lead to inbox spam.

UPDATE: Since the original posting of this piece Reaganbook's management has put the entire site into "offline mode" and released the following statement:

"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, pornography, 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."

  8. Spraypaintedgold, no it's not just you. And it doesn't help that there are typos and grammar mistakes all over the place too. Old knows, poorly constructed content and fluff stories is the new normal here at Towleroad.

    If you want finger-on-the-pulse news content, JoeMyGod is better.

  10. "to keep the site free from ... those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family. " ????

    If that's the case, did they push Janet Porter out the door and down the street? Sounds like she and Sarah Palin and all their icky ilk would be part of that destruction. Ahh, the vile naivete of mentally incapacitated worms.

  11. Too bad the comment on that home page about evil that is attributed to Reagan was originally made by Edmund Burke in the 18th century:

    "All this is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing".

    So much for the genius of Ronald Reagan.

  12. Way behind the curve on this one, Towleroad.

  14. I don't get what the big deal is on the timing of this posting. Reaganbook launched yesterday. It got reported today and updated today here. Joe.My.God. posted it LATE yesterday and updated it today.

    Is the problem that you'd have liked to go and troll Reaganbook before it got taken down due to excessive trolls? Well, if you KNEW about it yesterday then you had PLENTY of time to go and troll there and then come back and continue to troll here.

    Let's not eat our own kids. We got enough enemies to do that for us.
