My Dad served as a park ranger with the National Park Service for several years. His duties included fire-fighting. So I have a decent grasp of the science of backfires: How, When, Where, and Why.
In a nutshell: backfires work. It’s called “fighting fire with fire.”
Since January 20, Leftistas and their willing lackeys in the mainstream media have been flaming anyone or anything not on board with their agenda. They’ve jettisoned any pretense at objectivity when it comes to reportage on Republicans, conservatives, or – gasp! – President Trump.
For too long, about the only thing conservatives could do in the face of such rabid hostility and rank dishonesty was wring our hands. Or yell at the TV.
Newsflash: Wringing your hands or hollering at the TV doesn’t work. But fighting fire with fire can.
You can do that via the Media Equality Project.
Noting that conservative voices have recently been the targets of well-organized and well-funded destruction campaigns a la Saul Alinksy, the project has launched Operation Fight Fire With Fire (Hashtag: #StopTheScalpings). Its tagline is:
“Working together to stop the suppression of the First Amendment by the Left.”
Its Facebook group, Stop the Scalpings, continues:
From advertiser boycotts, mainstream media hit pieces, pressure on network management, riots, violence and much more, dissenting views are truly under attack. … when taxypayer-funded universities are allowed to create environments so hostile to divergent opinions that outright violence is the result, we must take a stand.
“Taking a stand” mean standing up to those who seek to silence dissent or threaten and intimidate anyone who dares to express another view. It also means actively backing those who are on the frontlines. From the Media Equalizer web site:
#StopTheScalpings is part of the Media Equality Project, a new organization launched by Brian Maloney and Melanie Morgan, two longtime talk show hosts, political and media analysts.
The DNC, mainstream media, George Soros, and Media Matters for America, deemed Sean Hannity’s pursuit of the facts too close for comfort. In an effort to protect their ilk, and the secrets they keep, they have created a false narrative. They have defamed Hannity’s character, his work and political positions.
Media Matters has now targeted Sean Hannity’s advertisers all in a back door effort to remove financial support for the show. They do this to silence his voice, because it does not speak in unison with their own.
Noting that Hillary the Marquise de Corruptocratia Clinton is “one of the founders of Media Matters, and George Soros is a main benefactor,” ME points out that Media Matters has targeted numerous conservative voices because they’re conservative.
This shouldn’t surprise us. We all know that the Leftista version of “free speech” is for them only. Disagree, and wait for the cudgel. Both personally and professionally.
To counteract these fascistic tactics, #StoptheScalpings has decided to fight fire with fire. As long as Media Matters continues to attack conservatives, we will return them the same kindness. We begin with Rachel Maddow who has been the biggest purveyor of lies and propaganda in the media today. Like Media Matters, we will now inform the public and the advertisers about who they are financing.
Conservatives are asked to join #StopTheScalpings and expose companies who support shows, hosts and networks that suppress the First Amendment. A list of advertisers on Maddow’s show follows (at the conclusion of the ME post. I think I’ve been hung up on at least half a dozen times today :)). Supporters are asked to call, email, and cancel their subscriptions until said companies yank their support for “Maddow’s hateful, biased and untruthful reporting.”
The ME post closes with:
It is time to fight back for freedom, it is time to fight fire with fire.
A May 31 Media Equality Project post, Coming Attractions, says Rachel Maddows is “only the beginning” of its effort to expose the media’s double standard:
Coming up next: Morning Joe, Brian Stelter, Stephen Colbert, Michael Smerconish, Don Lemon, Lawrence O’Donnell, Anderson Cooper, George Stephanopolous, and more!
Maybe we can sell tickets?
