Jacktivist people who hijack activism with either nonsense, silliness, sloganeering or even unrelated issues.
Leftist have hijacked all this energy from the Palestinian movement. I saw shit brains there like Lee Camp who I did NOT see at the conference. They like to sing and chant stuff like from the river to the sea Palestine will be free. They all like theatrics and posting pictures on their facebooks. But what good is any of that if you don’t follow it up? Not a single fucking person came to lobby with me this morning. This is why they fail. They chant in the street at the wrong fucking building (AIPAC was at Verizon not Mt Vernon) like idiots, but when it’s time to be grown ups they get intimidated and don’t show. They’re talking about some after party and At these it’s just a huge circle jerk. I took time to write out a speech for Georgetown university and preparation to lobby.
Three big women with nothing to say all showed up with microphones (ironic) and hijacked the Palestine rally. Were these jacktivist paid opposition or just run of the mill useful idiots? It doesn’t matter because the result is the same in both cases. We need to get away from this kind of strategy and theater.
Some visitors asked me yesterday what the Palestine rally was about. It had no clear message and was obnoxious. Sadly I must agree to that. I say and have always said this type of theatrical feel good activism serves little constructive purpose.
Then you look at AIPAC, everyone is in a coat and tie, quiet and going inside the building with a unified message. Sure they lie and they’re racist. But they are organized.
I propose forming a human rights lobby. HRL
I need grown ups to join and do phone campaign and walk ins.
