Boycott CNN to protest it turning into another FOX News!

Target: CNN CEO Chris Licht

It’s hard enough as it is to get objective coverage on almost anything in this country from a for-profit corporate-owned news media machine that eschews comprehensive coverage on important issues in favor of chasing ratings with sensationalism, cultural division, and both-sidesism.

But ever since CNN got a new owner and a new CEO, there have been some disturbing changes at the network. Vocal Trump critics Brian Stelter and John Harwood have been pushed out of the network, while new CEO Chris Licht has announced the network will be moving away from what management calls its “red-hot liberal opining” (which it hardly was). A former Daily Caller employee is now hosting the network’s morning show.

Demand CNN’s CEO stop turning into a conservative news network!

It’s hard not to see the influence of John Malone, the billionaire Trump donor who happens to be the largest shareholder at CNN’s parent company. Malone has said he thinks that “Fox News…has followed an interesting trajectory of trying to have ‘news’ news, I mean some actual journalism, embedded in a program schedule of all opinions.”

Not only is it a terrible business strategy — right-wing viewers will never prefer the Impossible Burger of FOX lite to the dripping, bloody red-meat fascism of FOX News — but it also is depriving us of liberal perspectives in a news and social media market dominated by conservative lies and delusion.

Boycott CNN to protest it turning into another FOX News!


Hold Alex Jones and other right-wing conspiracists accountable for their lies!


Uncategorized

During his trial for defaming the families of Sandy Hook massacre victims, InfoWars host Alex Jones revealed that at one point, his company was making up to $300 million a year off of peddling appalling, unhinged conspiracy theories.

That is a mind-boggling sum of money for someone who has cruelly inflicted pain and fear on families mourning their slain children — not to mention the amount of damage he’s done to the minds of his viewers with the misinformation and fictions he promotes every day.

Hold Alex Jones and other conspiracy-peddlers accountable for profiting off their lies!

Unfortunately, Jones is only one of many right-wing talking heads who promote dangerous white supremacist rhetoric, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia, conspiracy theories, and outright falsehoods — much of which is eventually parroted by Trumper politicians and used as inspiration by right-wing mass shooters.

But the Alex Jones trial could set a precedent for holding each and every one of these callous liars accountable for the angst, frustration, and fear that they impose on the targets of their rants. It’s time to make them all pay!

Hold Alex Jones and other right-wing conspiracists accountable for their lies!


Demand the NFL ban serial sexual predator Deshaun Watson!


Uncategorized

Target: Commissioner Roger Goodell

On August 1st, an independent disciplinary officer passed down a six-game suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who stands accused of sexual assault and harassment by 30 — yes, thirty! — women who he hired for massage therapy.

The punishment pales in comparison to the season-long suspensions recently handed out to Calvin Ridley (gambling) and Josh Gordon (weed); Judge Robinson’s decision is even more inexplicable since she found Watson guilty of sexual assault and posing a danger to the safety of others.

Demand Commissioner Goodell suspend Watson indefinitely!

Under the collective bargaining agreement, Commissioner Roger Goodell still has the power to increase Watson’s suspension and is expected to. But if he wants to prove to the nation that the NFL takes sexual assault seriously — which it has certainly not in the past — he’ll hand down an indefinite suspension and not let Watson be rewarded for his crimes by becoming the highest-paid player in the league.

Thirty women were abused and threatened and humiliated by this man for his own perverse pleasure. He has no business being on a football field — and certainly no business being paid $230 million dollars to do it.

Demand Commissioner Roger Goodell suspend alleged serial sexual predator Deshaun Watson for good!


Demand Herschel Walker tell us if he’s our dad!


Uncategorized

Target: Herschel Walker

The Republican challenger for Sen. Raphael Warnock’s seat, Herschel Walker, seems to be having a little bit of trouble remembering his children. Journalists have discovered that the ex-NFL star has not one, not two, but THREE secret children that he failed to mention in any of his public appearances, despite promoting himself as a shining example of responsible fatherhood that our nation apparently is lacking.

“And I want to apologize to the African-American community, because the fatherless home is a major, major problem…[I’ve been] like a father to some of those kids that had never had fathers” bragged Walker in a September 2020 interview that has not aged well at all.

Which raises the question: who else is Herschel Walker’s child?

Demand Herschel Walker tell us if he’s our dad!

Obviously, Mr. Walker’s private business is his own — but it is astoundingly hypocritical to proclaim yourself a champion father when you have multiple secret children, some of whom you are even estranged from.

It’s just another indication that the Republican Party’s phony pro-family, pro-life, pro-child platform is nothing but a cynical ploy to give themselves the phantom moral high ground while promoting an agenda of naked hatred and bigotry.

So this Father’s Day, let’s put his hypocrisy on full display!

Demand Herschel Walker tell us if he’s our dad!


Kick Tucker Carlson off the air after his neo-nazi conspiracy theories inspired another mass shooting!


Uncategorized

Target: Fox News

The mass shooter who killed 10 and injured 13 at a Buffalo supermarket posted an online manifesto championing “White Replacement Theory,” a white supremacist conspiracy popularly embraced by none other than Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.

The ludicrous premise — that nonwhite people are being brought into the United States to replace white people and destroy “western culture,” all orchestrated by a sinister Jewish elite — has been amplified and promoted by the most-watched television pundit in America.

Suggesting that somehow immigrants are complicit in this plan to replace white people is not just ignorant, it’s dangerous. Carlson has endangered millions of people all to selfishly capitalize on extremist panic and build his fan base.

Add your name to demand Fox News kick Carlson off the air for inspiring a racially motivated mass shooting!

The Washington Post reported that after only a year of Tucker Carlson bringing the white nationalist fringe theory to the forefront of conservative politics, nearly half of Republicans agree with it. In fact, those who said they prefer Fox News were more likely to agree with the theory than any other group.

The “white replacement theory” has been explicitly cited as motivation for at least four separate white supremacist terror attacks in recent history, including the massacre at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue in 2018.

It’s long past time for the most prominent advocate of this disgusting propaganda to be kicked off the air.

Sign your name to call for Tucker Carlson to finally be deplatformed!


Indict the cops who got a five-week-old baby killed in a high speed chase!


Uncategorized

Target: Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry

Gill and Edward Williams were caught stealing baby items from a Walmart Supercenter in Monroe, Louisiana, and subsequently taken on a high speed chase by police. In a deadly crash, both Edward and their five-week old baby were killed while Gill managed to escape. Now, Gill is being charged with two counts of manslaughter.

The officer put all of their lives at risk to catch a new mother stealing necessities for her child. We can not allow the law to supersede humanity — she was stealing baby items. Now, through the trauma of losing both her child and the father of her baby she’s going to face years in prison over deaths that could have been prevented. If anyone is responsible, it’s not her.

It does not matter what else Gill has done, she should not be charged with the deaths of her loved ones. Out of desperation, she stole for her infant from one of the most profitable corporations in the world. Walmart is worth over $400 billion. How much could they possibly have added to their bottom line by calling the cops on a vulnerable new mother? 

Add your name to call for the officer to be charged for the deaths instead of Gill!


Tell Elon Musk: don’t let Trump back on Twitter!


Uncategorized

Target: Elon Musk

On April 25th, Twitter’s board of directors announced that they would approve the sale of the behemoth social media platform to none other than Elon Musk.

Musk has recently made a lot of noise about right-wing “censorship” by Big Tech, leading to fears that he will restore Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account and give him back his bully pulpit from which to foment insurrection, wage incessant feuds, and promote dangerous and usually racist conspiracy theories.

Demand Elon Musk keep Donald Trump off Twitter!

Trump was rightfully kicked off of Twitter for promoting election misinformation and glorifying violence in the wake of the January 6th attack on the Capitol by his supporters.

Before that, he routinely incited violence against Muslim members of Congress, leading to a constant stream of death threats. Donald Trump is an existential threat to the American public and needs to be kept far away from social media platforms people actually use.

Tell Elon Musk: don’t let Trump back on Twitter!


Demand Twitter ban the “Libs of Tiktok” account for inciting violence against teachers!


Uncategorized

Target: Twitter

Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz recently pointed a spotlight on the “Libs of TikTok” account, which anonymously wages a one-person witch hunt against LGBTQ+ teachers.

Right-wingers have accused Lorenz of “doxxing” the poster behind the account, but in reality, she has just exposed its appalling crusade.

The “Libs of Tiktok” accounts targets LGBTQ+ teachers and promotes their personal social media videos to a huge audience — her posts are often picked up by FOX News hosts — and gloatingly tries to get them fired.

Given the rapacious and frenzied state of the modern conservative, this inevitably incites harassment and death threats against these teachers — including against Tyler Wrynn, a former Oklahoma English teacher who committed the crime of making a video telling LGBTQ kids shunned by their parents that he was proud of them.

Call for Twitter to ban the Libs of TikTok account for targeted harassment and promoting malicious conspiracies!

The woman behind the account, Chaya Raichik, has used her account to promote COVID-19 denial, QAnon conspiracies about sex trafficking, 2020 election fraud conspiracies before finally pivoting to anti-LGBTQ “groomer” discourse, calling for any teacher who came out as gay to be fired immediately.

We only need to look at the attack on Comet Ping Pong pizzeria to know that Raichik is putting people’s lives in danger and is obviously violating the Twitter terms of service.

It’s time for her to go back into obscurity.

Demand the influential “Libs of Tiktok” Twitter account be banned for inciting violence against teachers!


Demand cops stop using copyrighted music to keep videos of them from being shared!


Uncategorized

Target: United States Police Departments

Police officers in Santa Ana, California, began blasting copyrighted Disney songs from their police cruisers during an April 4 on-scene investigation after bystanders began filming them, believing the use of copyrighted music would cause social media companies to block the videos from being shared.

This isn’t the first time cops have tried to deter citizens from making sure they comply with the apparently unreasonable demand of doing their jobs with dignity and respect — and it has to stop.

Tell police departments to ban the use of copyrighted material to keep people from filming them!

The development of the smartphone and social media platforms have blown the lid off the epidemic of police brutality and rampant misconduct against Black and Latino Americans — cops know it. We know it. Everyone knows it.

But rather than changing their behavior, institutional culture, or holding any of the badge-wearing perpetrators accountable for their actions, police are cooking up half-baked ways to stop videos of abuse and harassment from being promoted on social media in the first place.

We need our police departments to encourage transparency and accountability among their officers while serving the communities they’ve been sworn to protect. If cops don’t want people filming them, then they should give us absolutely no reason to do so.

Demand cops stop using copyrighted music to keep videos of them from being shared!


Call upon President Biden to secure the release of Brittney Griner and other political prisoners in Russia!


Uncategorized

Target: United States President Joe Biden

WNBA star Brittney Griner was arrested by the Russian Federation sometime in February for having “cannabis oil” in her bag and accused of “smuggling narcotics,” which carries a ten-year sentence in Russia. “There are no words to express this pain. I’m hurting, we’re hurting,” wrote her wife on Instagram.

Griner joins other detained Americans Trevor Reed and Paul Whelan, who are both serving sentences in brutal Russian prisons on likely trumped-up charges of assaulting a policeman and espionage.

Tell Congress to free the Americans imprisoned in Russia!

With the breakdown of diplomatic relations between the US and Russia over Vladimir Putin’s horrific invasion of Ukraine, their families are terrified their loved ones will end up as political pawns in Russian schemes. “Our diplomatic relationships with Russia are nonexistent at the moment,” warned Rep. John Garamendi (D-CA).

Griner’s story — and those of Whelan and Reed — have flown under the media’s radar as attention is rightfully put on the plight of those suffering under Russian bombardment in Ukraine. But these Americans so much deserve better than a Russian labor camp, and we can’t let them be forgotten.

Call upon Biden and US allies to secure the release of Brittney Griner and other American political prisoners held in Russia!
