Most people have never heard of the “Aspen Ideas Festival.” According to website of the festival’s sponsor, The Aspen Institute, its mission is twofold:
to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues.
Normal folks would probably translate this festival as a gathering of rich elitists drinking wine and pondering how they can screw the rest of us.
Naturally, the Aspen Ideas Festival is using Twitter to discuss the agenda, attendees and the awesome ideas they are coming up with. But the #AspenIdeas hashtag is also attracting leftists who feel their misogyny, anti-Americanism, and hatred of Israel is underrepresented at the festival.
Though not in attendance, “Award-winning” journalist Max Blumenthal from the Huffington Post and Al-Jazeera thought it was downright hilarious to agree that women should be on President Obama’s “kill” list.
More ideas from the Aspen Twitter timeline? Bashing Israel!
And the United States!
Luckily, conservatives on Twitter have jumped in and #AspenIdeas is now a Friday night hashtag hijack game.
