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.

    I hope this is a wakeup call to the corporations that caved to e-activists. They are great at clicking on cyber petitions, but when it comes to actually exerting themselves for a cause, they let the anarchists do their dirty work. WTG Intuit, Coke, Kraft and McDonalds. You *might* have gained 15 customers.

      And those 15 customers won’t be paying since Marxists never believe in paying for their own stuff, they always ask someone else to do it.

    I doubt that those corps GAINED any customers from the left…most of them would protest and boycott for the sake of the ACT, if it’s for a really “BIG” cause, they will rally up support, hand them signs…
    Protest is to a LIBERAL what a Steak is to Pavlov’s dog…the drool starts in anticipation.
