Let me hasten to say that at Gates of Vienna, calling someone “a clever propagandist” is high praise. We wuz all raised on TV commericals, ad jingles, etc. Anything short and pithy is more easily absorbed by the short and pissy-minded. So cut to the chase before you lose their attention. Just ask our forward-leaning President who leads from behind so those in front can absorb any bumps in the road. Tell me, can you remember even one Romney piece of propaganda?
The People’s Cube has generated a successful hashtag; it’s currently dominating the right side of Twitter and spreading ever faster. The left side of Twitter is fuming at all of it, but using the more extreme Twitter messages playing with the hashtag to try to shut down the whole meme.
Why their outsized fear? Because ridicule scares them. Even though all hashtags are short-lived and run thru Twitter like a flash fire before expiring on their own, the thin-skinned Left is always threatened by satire and ridicule, even as they consider it a weapon of choice themselves. Awww…poor Lefties. How they despise a level playing field.
Here’s a snip from “Hamas Bumper Stickers on Twitter Started by the People’s’ Cube”: [click on the URL to see all the links in his post, which are missing in this snip]:
Last night on Twitter, at 10pm, @ThePeoplesCube started a #HamasBumperStickers trend, which was picked up by tens of thousands people and quickly rose to the #2 trend not just in the United States but also worldwide - the fact promptly picked up by Michelle Malkin's Twitchy Team.
This trend reflects on the recent killing of a top Hamas military commander in a targeted air strike, in retaliation for a terrorist barrage of rockets launched by Hamas on Israel from Gaza. Since the terrorists can be expected to be taken out in their cars at any moment, the bumper sticker possibilities are endless.
Full credit goes to our Twittermaster on duty, General Secretary. Red Square joined later and contributed, too.
14 hours later, at about noon, #HamasBumperStickers broke a Twitter record on humorous hashtag games, by not just staying on the list, but moving to the first position!
He has a list of possible Twitter messages for use with his Hamas hit. Below are a few choice pearls from his long inventory. If you have a Twitter account feel free to steal or make up your own :
- I just lost 200 lbs instantly - ask me how
- My other car is a bomb
- 80 percent of success is just blowing up
- Baby suicide bomber on board
- This is your brain. This is your brain on upholstery.
- What car bomb would Mohammed drive?
Israel is now paying dearly for its counter-attack against Gaza after months of provocation. The rest of the world is going to lecture Israel for its immoral move against Hamas. Ask Israel if it cares anymore. No matter what it does, it can never, ever win acceptance. Might as well go with a plan for survival.
Freedom’s just another word for “tell it to the hand, baby”.
Thanks to Takuan for the correction to Oleg's ethnicity - what do I know from anything when it comes to that part of the world?
