Fight For Me Hillary!

Dear wombats,

Given that I’ve taken such a long break, I had hoped to return to you with a proper post full of analysis and BLAME.  Violet, however has tipped my hand by sharing the following. In the comments I hope those of you who care to will share your favorite bit of this video (and judging by my own reaction, it’s likely to be the moment that made you cry).

In the spirit of sharing, I will tell you that the title of this post represents my tipping point.

Enjoy

  1. Thank you for taking the time to create a blog post on the video “Mad as Hell/Bitch”.

    The video was created by two grassroots supporters who met online, IndyRobin and GeekLove08. It took 4 weeks to create the video as we were collaborating via e-mail and we had a lot of material to work with. Both of us are fairly new to YouTube– I started to create videos in February and this was IndyRobin’s first video.

    We believe that the message of misogyny, as well as the character assassination of Hillary Clinton, by the media is an important one. We are “mad as hell” that television has become what Edward R. Murrow had warned about in 1958 when he said “This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box.”

    Thanks to people like you, the video has gone “viral” spreading through the internet, and perhaps inspiring people to speak out against the media.

    If you and/or your readers have the opportunity, we would appreciate it very much if you could go to the original video post on YouTube and RATE the video, post a COMMENT on the video, and FAVORITE the video. These actions will help the video earn YouTube “honors” which may help further promote the video online. (You can get to the YouTube site for the video by double clicking the video on your blog.)

    Thanks again for your post.

    P.S. The video is NOT an anti-Obama video, but rather a video against the media bias. However, for those who do support Hillary Clinton, a donation to her campaign, for those who can afford it, would be great. There is a donation link on YouTube. The donation link appears when you click “More info” that appears next to the video information “Added: April 06, 2008”. I will also try to post a link here too — Click to Donate. Thanks.

  2. And thank you, so very much, for putting the video together. It represents for me the very best instincts for how video media can be used to demonstrate to a jaded public the profound illogic and inequities that comprise the mainstream media today.

    And as a side note, although I am an ardent supporter of Hillary, I would love to see a similar video put together for Obama, calling out the racism he has faced over the course of his public life.
