Beginning at 9 a.m. this morning, Jewish Funds for Justice has been driving activists to "tweet the heck out of Glenn Beck," as the Washington Post puts it. The group is sending one haiku a minute directly to @glennbeck (accompanied by hashtag #becku) for 24 straight hours to raise awareness of the Fox News host's recent remarks mocking the faith-based idea of "social justice."
So far, JFSJ has amassed more than 1,500 haikus mocking Beck (you can check out http://haikuglennbeck.com for more or to send one yourself).
Here's a quick round-up of Tweets I enjoyed from the most recent batch:
I knew a kid in
Fifth grade. He thought Hitler was
A communist, too
Glenn Beck's hate filled speech
boycotted by all sane people
and quite rightly so.
What is that sniffling?
Poor Circus Clown of Foxland
Cry us a river
And here's possibly my favorite Glenn Beck Haiku of all...
Give me your fearful
Your easily influenced
Oh- and a chalkboard
Do you want to join the thousands who have already put their name on "Beck's blackboard?" Check out the video SEIU, MoveOn and Brave New Films created to show how absurd and dishonest Glenn Beck's fear-mongering via his Fox News show really is: I've sent this video to dozens and dozens of my friends, and they all got a big kick out of it--I'm betting you will too.
Full disclosure: I work for SEIU.
