Earlier this month, Twitchy founder and boss emeritus Michelle Malkin tweeted this:
Wednesday night was no exception. Once again, Malkin and fellow happy warriors tapped the power of Twitter to influence the narrative and crush toxic media smears. And it was a thing of beauty.
Conservatives used the #MyRightWingBiracialFamily hashtag to smack down MSNBC’s despicable tweet predicting the Right would “hate” Cheerios’ adorable ad featuring a biracial family. Really. The shameless and shameful network that mocked Mitt Romney’s biracial family went there.
The result of the social media explosion? MSNBC deleted the tweet and apologized, claiming “that’s not who we are.” Of course, it’s exactly who they are. But the social media win didn’t end there. Beautiful family photos continue to flood Twitter with love, hope and diversity today.
Tell us those photos didn’t make your day.
We wish we could feature every tweet.
You can follow the hashtag here:
This is how it’s done.
Enjoy the win. You did build that.
