There isn’t any failure Moms Demean Action isn’t willing to turn around and spin as a huge win. From Emily Miller:
Mothers Demand Action forÂ Gun Sense in America, an organizationÂ funded byÂ billionaire Michael R.Â Bloomberg,Â is falsely claiming a victory for forcing a billboard company to take down aÂ Slide FireÂ advertisement in Chicago.
The truth is that the manufacturer contracted for the billboard to stay up for only two months.
And now that the two months is over, and the billboard rotates to another customer, as billboards are wont to do. Moms Demand Action declares victory! I know why they do this: because they recognize most of their followers don’t know the difference between a real victory and a shit sandwich, and hope they’ll keep donating and contributing enough to keep the organization relevant.
I can’t blame them for trying, because it’s not like our side doesn’t peddle in a lot of BS. But at least we’ll have open discussion about it, as grassroots. The fact that they can get away with such organizational discipline in the first place, shows this to be the hollow hull it really is.
