Are the Usual Suspects Behind Boycotting “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”? You Betcha!



2010 November 12

by Michelle Horstman

The Learning Channel’s (TLC) new series, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” premieres this Sunday night, Nov. 14th, despite the best efforts of her detractors to shut it down. What might appear on the surface to be an effort by those who oppose her views on conservation and hunting issues is, in reality, backed by the usual suspects who seek to shut down any voices who do not go along with their progressive agenda. Those who claim to be the biggest advocates of free speech continue to prove that their brand of free speech only applies to speech (and programming) that fits with their ideology; no others need apply.

Leading the charge to shut down the Palin series has been Michael Kieschnick, who has his hands in just about everything, working with George Soros, Jim Wallis, Andy Stern, Drummond Pike and many more.

Kieschnick seems to feel that the Discovery Channel and its affiliates were signed, sealed and delivered to the progressives, and it is clear that he is outraged that they would present anything that deviates from the agenda. It is clearly another Fox News plot! From his anti-Palin petition page :

It’s one thing if Fox News gives Sarah Palin a platform. But when Discovery Communications – home to the Discovery Channel, the “Planet Earth” series, the Science Channel, Animal Planet, and TreeHugger.com – gives a show to Sarah Palin, it undercuts everything the Discovery brand has come to represent.

That’s funny….I thought it represented making a profit…

With such a disastrous environmental track record, how could Sarah Palin get a nature show on an eco-conscious media platform like Discovery? The answer may lie in Discovery’s COO, Peter Liguori, who joined Discovery in December after a previous stint at Palin’s other TV home: Fox Broadcast Co.

Ah ha! Now we have pinned down the culprits behind allowing Palin to be seen. Evil Fox News strikes again.

Kieschnick doesn’t always spend his time wringing his hands about Sarah Palin. In fact, he is one busy progressive. As Michael Vadum wrote about recently, Michael Kieschnick has been working with George Soros through the Secretary of State (SoS) Project and was a co-founder of this effort. Vadum explains:

The purpose of the SoS Project is to destroy the remaining vestiges of electoral integrity. The group endorses left-wing, Democratic secretary of state candidates who have no respect for clean, honest elections.

Vadum continues:

According to reports filed with the IRS, members of the Democracy Alliance gave sizable contributions this year and last year to the SoS Project. Alliance member and SoS Project co-founder Michael Kieschnick, who heads Working Assets, a long distance provider that funds so-called social justice projects, gave $10,000.

He has also worked hard with George Soros to sway religious groups to vote for pro-choice candidates. According to Frances Kissling:

With support from George Soros and Michael Kieschnick, the founder of Working Assets and Credo Mobile, groups like Sojourners, Faith in Public Life and Catholics in Alliance entered the electoral arena. Catholics in Alliance and its sister organization, Catholics United, were active in voter registration and organizing Catholic voters in swing states like Ohio and Pennsylvania in 2006 and 2008. Presenting themselves as more Catholic than the pope — faithful to church teachings on contraception, abortion and everything else the majority of Catholics have long rejected — the groups insisted in press release after press release that good Catholics could vote for pro-choice candidates, so long as those candidates were also working to reduce the number of abortions.

His business CREDO Mobile, is based on promoting progressive causes:

The company, CREDO, even boasts that it has the support of President Obama as it markets itself as an agent of social change. It pitches its mobile phone services with a vow to fight for “real” health care reform, free speech, peace and the environment.

To those ends, CREDO claims it has raised $63 million for liberal causes and groups such as the ACLU, Doctors Without Borders, Planned Parenthood and Earthjustice — all the while skewering its bigger, well-established rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless for financially supporting Republicans and moderate Democrats.

This guy must have endless energy, because he also teaches, sharing his wisdom with tomorrow’s leaders:

For many years, he was a lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley, teaching a graduate seminar on financial innovation. He currently teaches a class on social innovation at Stanford University.

In 2009 Michael Kieschnick and Frannie Kieschnick were financial supporters of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights in Oakland, California, which also links to Apollo and the Tides Foundation. This is starting to sound like the same old story, isn’t it?

Kieschncik also sits on the board of the radical Social Policy Organizers’ Forum Board, published by Wade Rathke, along with Deepak Bhargava, Drummond Pike (Tides), Andy Stern, and many others. The Editorial Advisory Group includes favorites such as Noam Chomsky, Janice Fine, S.M. Miller, Peter Olney, Frances Fox Piven, Heather Booth, Peter Dreier, Maya Wiley, Robert Fisher, Ashutosh Saxena, Ken Grossinger. They host the Organizer’s Forum, in partnership with…the Tides Foundation, of course.

But his busy schedule doesn’t end there. Kieschnick also serves as a board member for the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, Sojourners (Jim Wallis), and the Beatitudes Society, which supports progressive Christians through seminary chapters and social justice fellowships.

Perhaps Sarah and The Learning Channel should be honored to be the target of such a busy man and the related organizations that have so many other progressive causes to fight for. They obviously find her a worthy cause to battle. Whether you are a fan of Sarah Palin or not, I strongly suggest you watch every minute of TLC’s production; if not for what you might learn about Palin, than just for the sheer pleasure of driving the usual suspects crazy with the ratings. Will I be watching? You betcha!

Since the liberals hate Sarah Palin, and since the liberals will certainly use clips from her show to make fun of her, shouldn’t they be happy that she has a show? Wouldn’t they want to promote her show, because they expect it to show how moronic she is, from their point of view?

You just know that Bill Maher and Jon Stewart, among others, are going to show clips from her show to demonstrate how insipid the show and Palin herself are. So why would they want to shut it down and deny all good liberals a good laugh??????

Well, considering that the last time, liberal Enviro-nut James Lee tried to kill everybody at the Discovery Channel headquarters, I guess a boycott is a step in the right direction under the circumstances... (/s)

As a side note, Discovery/TLC set up a Facebook page for the show two weeks ago. Liberal trolls quickly took over the comments section, trashing Sarah and demanding that the show be yanked. The Discovery/TLC mod did nothing about it except to ban the Palin supporters who were trying to expose the trolls. It was pretty pathetic!

James Lee attacks Discovery channel. Now you get a show about Sarah Palin, a woman who didn’t abort her Down’s baby.

I have always wondered how the number of viewers was calculated. Do cable companies supply statistics on what their customers select to view? I thought in years past when we received our television signals via the air waves, you had to have a set top box of some type to gather this information. Just curious.

I fully intend to view every episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska. I like her, I agree with what she stands for, and I also like Alaska having just visited there recently.

Do they just make that stuff up on the spot or is there a real track record that they are referring to?

I can’t wait to see the show. I am very excited to see it. All of the progressives out there can kiss my behind. I am sick and tired of these loons trying to destroy this country. They see a happy woman and they can’t stand it, just like they can’t stand seeing Bristol on Dancing With The Stars..they hate it that she is still on the show just like they are upset that Sarah has her own show. The whackos have come out of the closet these last two years, the masks are off, and after their asses being handed to them last week, they have become completely unhinged. I hope the ratings for Sarah’s show hits the roof

To the extent that the leftists push against Sarah, she has shown that she is more than capable of pushing back...even HARDER. Let them wallow in their rat droppings as they see all of their demented plans to diminish Sarah come to naught.

It’s also up against “Boardwalk Empire.” Oh, the tough choices when too many “appointment television” shows conflict!

I’ll say one thing - if it’s just another middle-of-the-road travelogue, it can get recorded and watched whenever. We seriously want to see what happens between Nucky and Rothstein. But then we’re interested in the history of NJ.

Absolutely!

I’ve heard at least 10 people talking about it today, which is more than I hear talking about any show anytime (excluding sports programming) — they all say they can’t wait to watch. I hope she gets a huge audience as well.

I am surprised she chose TLC as the venue it is looked down upon as a reality series network since the John and Kate plus 8 fiasco. Much rather have seen it on National Geographic channel so she wouldn't get critized and put into a reality show catagory

We were discussing the program this week (Are really looking forward to it) Dad said it is worth millions in political advertisement and could possible guarantee her the nomination and the Presidency. With the books, better than anything else she could do to further her political position.

(O, do you remember when I suggested after her first book, that she release a second, picture books for liberals about Alaska....Think this is her answer.)

Now that would be a great television moment!!! :o)

GOOD, LOYAL, PRO-LIFE, AMERICAN PATRIOTS either like or love Sarah Palin, and the anti-American, unAamericans among us won’t stop trying to stop her at every turn, YET SHE PREVAILS, and I think I know why. She has Heavenly help. Yes, I said it.

Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?

I thought in years past when we received our television signals via the air waves, you had to have a set top box of some type to gather this information. Just curious.

When I was in sales, among my customers was a company that had a monster data base and controlled the timing and content of commercials for all of the cable companies.

In addition they monitored the usage of each company, by home, TV set, time, day, frequency etc.

Because cable is a two way medium every single event that is viewed on any cable is recorded and the stats are down to the second.

They know if you are watching or channel surfing, if you like porn or sports or daytime or 3:00 AM viewing.

The cable stats are far more accurate than over the air, because these are real numbers, not projected numbers based on a Nielsen sample.

When they said that FOX had 6,905,407 viewers on election night and msnbc had 1,904,200 the advertisers know that these are real numbers and that their message got to 3 times the number of people on FOX vs msnbc.

Yes, watch the Palin Alaska series!

Governor Palin is on a roll.

And NO, not even the little poll dweebs can do a damn thing about it!

( OMG, say the left, SHE IS 4 % less popular, ......wait....wait.....Oh NOs!, she is 6% more popular on Friday than she was on Wednesday!!)

Buahahahahahahahahaha!

Paranoid Palin watching!ANd now she has her own TV special!!! I LOVE it!

"Will she run or not? OMG!!!!!" ,say the Progressive country club Republicans, we must find a poll/scandal to do somewhere that will get her shorts in a twist! (BUhahahahahahahahahaaha progressive Republicans!)

It all adds up to one thing. Governor Palin's POWER is increasing.

And her opposition is getting more and more desperate as this woman comes closer and closer to destroying the vaunted stereotype of Leftists liberal women, who BTW are Bleating Effers and Bleating Heifers compared to Governor Palin. This is THE liberal leftist stereotype of women that will be destroyed by Governor Palin, the stereotype around which the leftist and progressive Republican multiverses revolve and OMG, it is the end of the world as we know it. I mean how could we possibly have a president who can hunt,fish, cook in the wilderness, hammer nails, raise children and look dead sexy in the process, as well as being on top of the job as ( gasp!) president!!! I mean ( liberal whine) " Its just not fair!!! and I mean,( progressive Republican whine) " We won't be able to control her!!!! Oh NOs!!!!!

BUahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaa!

What a huge laugh. Sarah Palin is a genuine American woman, not a trussed up ivy league , ball busting femino-nazi who pretends to be interested in Euroweenie style men for the sake of ( if they can close their eyes long enough) procreation, and the continuation of the human race, even if there is global warming and the world as we know it is ending?

Buahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Governor Palin has the left and the progressive Republicans ALL SHOOK up!

I LOVE IT!!!!

She was supposed to be GONE by now. I mean, we have tried every thing!/s

Governor Palin is here to stay, and thank God for that.

Soon Governor Palin will name her price to the Progressve Republicans, and they will again have fits!!!!

I think their main beef was that she promoted aerial killing of wolves to thin the packs, because they were hunting down all the wild elk, etc. She said many people hunt for their food in Alaska and they can’t allow the wolves to take food out of their mouths.
She actually fought big oil, but the left claims she was in bed with them.

So where are you in the culture wars?And yes, the war with the left is above all the politics, a cultural war.

Your caricature of Palin is not only over stated but inaccurate.Her approach is much more effective than the one your posted photo portrays, doncha think?

I mean she has a TV special, and I doubt that in any interview that she will come even close to having a sword in her hand. Her crusade is conducted on facebook, not on a battle field. The press awaits her every pronouncement
with baited breath. Why? After all she does little daily grandstanding.

It is the left and country club elitist Republicans who deign not to follow the will of the people on issues of the day. The people know she will genuinely represent them, a rather outlandish concept in the world of progressive Republicans and big government leftists.

That is the simple fact of the matter.

And it is what genuinely drives opposition to her. Few know her record of accomplishment, which she could not have done without true bipartisanship on behalf of the people themselves. It is there where Governor Palin's strength lies, and her opponents are sorely vexed that they cannot destroy that trust and her record.

Even overstated photo-shopped creations make no dent in that steeled trust. They only make her stronger and define her trust in the people themselves.So it always has been with great Americans, who when needed,appear to enter the personal scourge of politics.Our nation has always produced them, and Governor Palin is no exception to that fact. She is that fact.

Another is Lt.Col. Allen West.The forces that will defeat the left and progressive Republicans are now gathering, and they are like prey, skitterish and nervous. They smell their own end on the wind.

That is great joy and promise for the people, who for the last 20 years, have had hardy any genuine representation in the halls of our government.

The caricature is not mine, so I will not take credit for it. I do, however, find images helpful in making a point or promoting a cause.

The "Culture Warrior Princess" poster is the work of an online graphics artist who goes by the handle iMaksim. More of his work can be found at http://imaksim.com/. Alot of iMaksim's work can be seen at http://thepeoplescube.com/. Enjoy.

You asked me; "where are you in the culture wars?"

That's easy, I'm a traditional family values Christian who supports limited government, states rights, and the wisdom of the Founding Fathers.

She supported the law in Alaska that allowed aerial hunting of wolves. The law was in existence well before she took office. As you will probably see in the show, if you have a plan to control wolf populations in AK, you must do it from the air as the expanse, the terrain, the lack of roads make it unfeasible any other way.

Predator control is practised throughout the various States. Aerial "hunting" for sport is not permitted and the Alaska program is regulated for the purpose of protecting and increasing the supply of food animals.

Liberals don't understand real life very well and are the same as the ones we have in Ohio(probably everywhere else too) who raise hell about "shooting bambi" (culling of the herd) even though our excess deer population is a menace to highway traffic and does serious harm to crops and landscape vegetation.
