"Tomorrow We Take On ABC, and Disney"
Tomorrow We Take On ABC, and Disney
[The lynch mob gets their nooses ready. YEEEEHAW!!!]
Well folks, you've witnessed it. I can't describe it any better than what you've already seen. I'm not sure what their motivation is. I really don't care. I've never seen anything quite like it in my life and I hope I never have to see it again.
[GASP! It's an OUTRAGE!!! I've never seen anything quite like it in my life. MSM reporters who actually dared to ask tough questions of our beloved Democrat candidates.]
My opinions on this are largely irrelevant. What matters to this network is money, and that is where we need to go. Starting tomorrow, my spare time, meager as it is, will be dedicated to revealing the advertisers of this network, for the purpose of organized boycotts.
[Not One Damn Dime Day.]
When a corporate behemoth like Disney decides it can control its News Division to filter, select and distort what the American population will or will not see in order to make decisions about its leaders, whatever murky motivations may underly that decision, there is a fundamental imbalance that needs to be addressed if this country is to remain a Democracy. What we saw tonight was neither Democratic nor Republican--it was corporate and it was disgusting--disgusting beyond my capacity to imagine just a few short years ago. So let our response begin here, tonight.
[Gentlemen...you may begin soiling your diapers!]
Justice Friends... assemble!
[Prepare the lynch mob!]
What a Hit Job, what a total f*cking hit job.. What was it 50 minutes of Obama saying over and over and over again, "This is exactly the kind of thing I'm talking about, which is not talking about the issues that matter to the American people." Obama made it very clear again and again, that he was more than aware that George and Charlie were acting like slimy National Inquirer reporters. I could tell that Obama was hot under the collar because everyone in that audience knew that this was a total f*cking hit job. How disgusting. I'm writing and calling ABC to make sure how piss poor and completely unprofessional their sleaze tactics played out. What a couple of rat turds these two are, I can't even figure out who was worse. Was it my imagination, or did Hilary seem as if she had already rehearsed these questions/answers before hand? My intuition tells me that she knew exactly what the questions were going to be before hand. I could be wrong, but I don't think so.
[It sounds like you already need another case of Depends.]
The only thing - the ONLY thing these people know and care about is ECONOMIC HURT.
[Withholding your dime might be a start.]
I wonder if it was a sign of her realizing she has lost, and running for re-election as a New York senator. In New York, there are a lot of Jewish people. A lot of them are pro-Israel. "Massive retaliation" promises are clearly pandering to that crowd.
[Psst! You're supposed to use the "neocon" code word.]
THE MEDIA IS OUR ENEMY! Remember that, now I know we are bombarded by bullshit 24/7 so it's hard to keep up with everything but we really need to get together and go after them and FIGHT them with everything we got! REMEMBER THIS and remember they can influence the election. WE NEED TO ACT NOW!
[You need to check your diaper for that particular bombardment.]
Outrage will not cut it. Only a real economic HURT PLAN, organized across sites like dKos, firedoglake, crooks & liars, AmericaBLOG, digby, atrios, TPM, will amount to anything. There must be ONE plan, and all sites signing onot it and promoting it. And presetning projected economic hurt to ABC if X numbers of penetration is reached via this action.
[Boycott butterfly nets!!!]
We don't subscribe to any newspaper. We don't listen to any corporate radio. We don't own a television.
[We have our heads stuck in a hole.]
Anything Disney owned needs to be blocked
[Does this mean no more Gay Day at Disney World?]
We have to get lots of signatures. We have to set up tables on the sidewalk (good because summer is coming) or in Malls (you need to get permission of the Mall owner since it is technically private property).
[The big stumbling block is that you also have to present the malls with a sanity certificate.]
Protest and boycott sponsors. We have the power and the numbers to make a difference.
[We already saw how effective you were on Not One Damn Dime Day.]
There is nothing wrong with wanting nice things, with being entertained, with expressing yourself. But Consumerism is something entirely more obsessive, darker, more destructive. Consumerism, as an emotional comforter and ideology is wasteful and harmful to the community, family and environment is not a valuable trait to encourage or nurture in children.
[Forget Islamofascism. It is the dark destructive Consumerism ideology that is the true threat to world peace.]
keep watching the videos you already have. SHARE them with other parents who would otherwise buy the Disney DVD, and don't buy Disney in the future. And talk to your kids about the power of the corporate media and the RESPONSIBILITY of the consumer to use their power as a balance. Spoken as a mom of a 7, 10 and 11 yr old. Yes, I do have these crazy, nerdy conversations with my children.
[And behind your back they laugh at you for being a crazed fool.]
We need help in PA winning a primary. Screw worrying about ABC.
[And start worrying about Operation Chaos. Hee! Hee!]
I will write to, and boycott sponsors if that is what we as a group feel is most effective. I made another donation to Sen. Obama tonight, and I intend to make some calls for him tomorrow.
[Barack Obama is only $10 away from losing in a landslide this November.]
What can I do? I am spitting mad at this clusterf*ck. I've already called and e-mailed.
[Drooling uncontrollably all over yourself is yet another option.]
My e-mail said that they "shamed themselves"
[Your rantings said that you "soiled yourselves."]
I will not sleep tonight. I am ENRAGED.
[Pied Piper Pitt hasn't slept since April 2006.]
buy used cars... or keep your current car going, or use mass transit or walk; eat non-Nabisco cookies and crackers, buy electronics from Apple or your local electronics shack, and quit drinking corporate swill beer (Coors, Anheiser Busch products, Miller) and support you local microbrewery. Write letters to these corps and let them know why.
[Use recycled Depends.]
From now on only broadcast on CSPAN or PBS; moderators selected by the Democratic Party. Or produce and feed directly.
[Or just have Keith Olbermann ask the questions for guaranteed softballs.]
Finally, Obama seemed off tonight under the pressure. More stuttering and stumbling than usual. More hesitation. Just OFF. This was frustrating and painful to watch.
[Yeah, painful to watch your own future nominee stumbling under a bit of pressure. Hee! Hee!]
I called back & YELLED at the operator, "SHAME SHAME SHAME ON ABC! I will NEVER watch your channel EVER again."
[After the November election, you will be yelling at your shrink.]
They're going down. THIS is the most important issue right now. These motherf*cking scavengers need to feel the error of their ways in their bottom line. BOYCOTT!
[BOYCOTT! Refrain from buying any restraint straps from corporatist scavengers!]
I can hardly wait to start calling and e-mailing. I have had ABC and Disney blocked on my TV for quite awhile or I would block them now. The Democrats need to cut ABC out of the loop along with Fox.
[You already cut rational thought out of the loop.]
Sadly...until the torches and pitchforks come out...literally...they're just gonna laugh at our outrage.
[Laugh at your outrage? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!]
Put me in charge and I will have these conglomerates broken up with their management and lackeys (Gibson, Stephanopoulos) in prison for a long time. Crimes against democracy will be defined, codified and punishments carried out forthwith.
[Spaketh a future Chekhist hopeful for the Attorney General slot in the Obama administration.]
It was vile, it was irrelevant and it was a naked attempt to distract voters and make candidates appear foolish. They may have 1st amendment protection but they do not have protection from being broken up and if a Dem by some miracle makes it to the White House, that person would be a fool not to take these f*cking un-American corporations down.
[And purge talk radio of any unapproved opinions via the Hush Rush bill aka the "Fairness Doctrine."]
I mean look at the title of the debate "Democrats Debate". Hmm..it's Democratic Debate.
[How about "Democratics Debate?"]
This was a disgrace and a treasonous act against the people of this country. We have to take our country back.
[Remember, remember, the fifth of November. That will be day you will be needing a rabies shot.]
I have entered ALL of the ABC numbers posted up thread and entered them in my cell phone on speed dial. I am making a personal commitment, and invite all the DKos community to join me, to call ALL these numbers repeatedly, everyday until our f*cking phones break.
[Your sanity will shatter before that happens.]
They can seriously damage the election, they hold our lives in their hands and I for one will NOT allow that!
[Right now we are holding your diaper in our hands.]
Have to find ways to comment on their shameful disservice to the public in every available outlets, calling in to talk radios, letters to the editor, etc.
[Screaming at the sky, chewing on the rubber room floor, etc.]
THEY HUNG UP ON ME!! M*%^&$ F^$&%*^* C($* S*%&$%#! I started to calmly express my disgust and they hung up!
[You were as calm as a rabid mental case could be.]
I have 28 room nights booked at various Disney locales between now and December. They are gone. Anybody have suggestions for alternative vacation spots?
[Pyongyang and Happy Farms.]
