Video: Anti-ALEC protest draws massive(ly pathetic) crowd

We’re a-skurred. Hold us!

Ben Howe documents the massive anti-ALEC movement that’s prompted more than a dozen companies to discontinue their ALEC memberships. Wait a second … massive? Or massively pathetic?

Corporations like Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, and McDonald’s caved to the anti-free speech bullying of a handful of astroturfed activists with giant pencil props? You’d never know from the media coverage that tens of people showed up at the May 11 protest in Charlotte, N.C.

Conservatives are enjoying spreading the video around Twitter:

One conservative is tweeting the companies targeted by the anti-ALEC mob.

We think this guy deserves a whole bunch of retweets.
