Weinergate and Alinsky

So.  Weinergate.

I was trying to avoid this, because a) it’s Memorial Day, b) it’s unclear what happened, and c) it’s got a high “ick” factor.  Those briefs are pretty dingy-looking.

To summarize:  A salacious photo was sent to a young journalism student from Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account.  He claims it was a hack prank.  I don’t know why he’s consulting with lawyers rather than the FBI, but I don’t understand why he votes the way he does either.  All that’s known for sure is that the photo was tweeted from his account to hers.

And that’s what Breitbart reported.

In response, there’s been a new meme developing in the Twitterverse, that Breitbart himself is responsible for either hacking the account, or faking the story.  I was going to post screenshots of these Twitter claims, but the language has an even higher “ick” factor than those shorts.  Which is par for the course in our shiny new Alinsky world.

The Twitter foot soldiers of the left provide no evidence because, of course, they have none.  They don’t need it!  Reality?  Facts?  It’s all about the emotions, man.  In a no-holds barred, Twitter pile-on, the left is out to destroy the messenger.

Will the tactic work?  Will Breitbart become the story?  In any case, I’m pretty sure Breitbart can take it – he’s been retweeting the accusations.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
