Meet Elizabeth Warren, Senator from Massachusetts… former Harvard Law prof, liar extraordinaire, and perhaps in the running to be on the Democrats 2016 ticket… Don’t laugh… read this post from Legal Insurrection about a liberal website called Upworthy and how and why we are losing the digital war with liberals… Warren and anyone else in 2016… gives me chills.
I previously wrote about how BuzzFeed Politics has combined “the culture” and savvy crafting into a highly effective tool for undermining Republicans with subtle and not-so-subtle mockery. “Look at the goofy cat, look at the goofy celeb, look at the goofy Republican” is more dangerous to us than a 5000-word article in The New York Times Sunday Magazine.
To follow up on that theme, I happened upon a website called Upworthy, which had one its posts run at HuffPo, Elizabeth Warren Asks The Most Obvious Question Ever, Stumps A Bunch Of Bank Regulators.
The post was so wrong on substance, I just had to click over to the source.
And therein I learned what millions of very low-information young liberals already knew — there is this website called Upworthy which is one giant liberal activist social media machine which creates viral social media memes in the cause of liberal political activism.
Go read the whole thing. We can poo-poo Twitter, etc. all we want, but the ignorant masses are using them to whip us in national elections.
