Ann Coulterís #BringBackOurGirls lampoon backfires
KC Star ^ | 5/13/14 | LISA GUTIERREZ

Posted on 05/13/2014 12:16:33 PM PDT by Oliviaforever

She and her fellow conservatives have been on a roll the past few days mocking the #BringBackOurGirls social media campaign launched to call attention to 300 kidnapped Nigerian girls.

First Lady Michelle Obama became the face of the campaign when she posed with a small white sign with the hashtag written on it.

Ann Coulter does not deserve this treatment by these social media leftists.

You can actually tell by the reaction that Coulter scored a hit.

could be worse.

Coulter could be using hashtags and selfies in place of real foreign policies.

Unfortunately the Twittersphere has been flooded, and the Millenials now believe that Coulter is the bad guy in this.

They can now literally create their own reality.
Hunker down, it’s gonna be a rough ride.

Funny how Shelly’s useless sign is played in the media as “doing something.” A single minute of writing passes as an enduring act.

I honestly can’t understand why commentators hate this campaign. The fact that we’re talking about it means it was successful in what it set out to accomplish. Criticize the Mooch for her ridiculous, insincere photo-op, but there’s not reason to dismiss the campaign.

I read Lisa’s little, tiny article. Couldn’t find the part where Coulter’s sign “backfired”. Just because a bunch of America-hating, commie libs made some smartass commie remarks, I wouldn’t consider that a “backfire”.

I’m puzzled as to why the lefties are Declaring Victory (or, declaring a Coulter Fail) here.

1. Coulter tweeted a selfie with a white sign and a hashtag message satirizing Michell Obama’s #BringBackOurGirls.

2. A bunch of lefties photoshopped Coulter’s sign to say various ridiculous things.

These meta-satires may or may not be funny, but my point is that they could be done to ANYone, no matter what the initial message is. I “fail” to see how this is an #AnnCoulterFail; it’s just a lot (!) of her critics making a lot of photoshops lampooning her. So what? Do these morons think, “A lot of people lampooned her, therefore she’s wrong/ therefore we win”?

Be careful. You can’t say anything positive about the campaign. They hate it and nothing you say will change their minds. They don’t care that it is being discussed at full speed and until this brilliant campaign was never mentioned. They don’t care. Some say we should stay out of it because the little girls are not American. These are who we are dealing with.

The campaign is symbolic of what’s wrong with the ObamaAdmin.

They ignore a problem for years(Islamic terrorism), criticise anyone who points it out, allowing it to grow, and now that it’s undeniably a problem that requires real, hard action, they come up with this fluff effort because they’re afraid of offending anybody.

The “Potemkin Village” Administration - it looks like there’s people there who could act, but alas, it’s all just a facade.

So typical for this bunch of bozos.

“Ann Coulter does not deserve this treatment by these social media leftists.”

She knows what she’s doing.

It’s calculated to drive the left batty, and it’s working.

Coulter wins, our country wins.

I am a lot more confident though, since folks tend to have tv-clicker memories and even more so, Twitter 140 letters limits memories, which are even shorter.

Apparently. Because of the Mooch’s stupid picture, decent people are on the wrong side of this.

What if Ted Cruz had done this with #bundyranch? That would have been huge!

When I read the trending FB headline that Coulters stunt had backfired I thought uh oh, Coulter must stepped in something.

A bunch of leftist kooks taking their routine mostly-not-clever potshots isn't news. Thats all they do.

If this is the new standard the media ought to come to FR the next time the Kenyan Klown demonstrates his trademark ineptitude. They'll really have a story.

I will go one better. If Ted Cruz would have put #bringbackourgirls and put it on the internet. The folks here would be calling for him to become President in 2016. I mean he filibustered with zero results and they praised him for it. Wendy Davis filibustered with zero results and she wasn’t. I just get sick of the politics I guess.

Commentators hate the campaign because it is only there as a means to present the facade of caring when in fact, they have done nothing.

In today’s world, the act of showing concern is good enough to buy votes.

It is the hypocrisy of it all that makes me sick.

Actually, they are just creating a delusion. The scope of that delusion will not alter reality. Reality is coming, and it will smack their teeth out.

The hashtag campaign falls in same bin as candlelight vigils, a pointless exercise that serves no other purpose then to make attendees feel that they are "doing something" about a problem with the added benefit of doing it in as easy a manner as possible without the complication of actual results. When it becomes policy (like when that state department twitterette implied that Vladimir Putin would bow to the power of hashtag and leave Ukraine), it shows how far up the creek and away from a paddle we are.

I know the reply: the hashtag deal increases awareness of the issue. So it gets "retweeted" or whatever by millions of twitterpeople...and then what?
