They are Marxist-inspired activists seeking to crack down on conservative political speech under the guise of combating “hate” and crusading for “diversity.”
“Social justice” = redistribution of wealth and economic “rights.”
“Media justice” = redistribution of speech and First Amendment rights.
Noel Sheppard digs deeper into the Center for Media Justice and finds some very familiar worms.
Putting the pieces together, an organization that Jones is on the board of founded the Youth Media Council which is now the Center for Media Justice. A representative of CMJ is the contact person for this new coalition looking to target Limbaugh, Beck, Dobbs, et al.
Not likely, for a look at CMJ’s Facebook page revealed an interesting post on September 29 (emphasis added):
Tell Fox News to Stop the Witch Hunts! Join CMJ and Color of Change to stop Glenn Beck’s program!
As NewsBusters reported on August 12, Jones was a founding member of Color of Change, the group that started an online petition calling for advertisers to stop sponsoring Glenn Beck’s television program.
But this gets better, for CMJ’s Facebook post sent readers to its “Actions” page. There, readers can find a September 11 headline, “Tell Fox News to Stop the Witch Hunts!” The embedded link sent readers to — wait for it!!! — Color of Change’s Beck petition.
This was posted at CMJ’s website just five days after Jones was forced to resign as Obama’s green jobs czar.
Now, roughly seven weeks later, a new coalition has been created using the same phrase “Stop the Witch Hunt” for its name, and its contact person works for CMJ which was not only founded by an organization whose Board of Directors includes Jones, but also worked with Jones’s Color of Change to get advertisers to stop sponsoring Beck.
If you still think this is all just a coincidence, might I interest you in some swampland?
