Sarah Palin Blasts Social Media As ‘The lazy…Way To Deal With Major…Issues’–On Facebook
Sarah Palin took to the medium she almost exclusively uses to make major pronouncements, to put down using hashtag activism. That would be the same medium that embraces the hashtag activism–social media.
“Diplomacy via Twitter is the lazy, ineffectual, naïve, and insulting way for America’s leaders to deal with major national and international issues,” Palin wrote in her Facebook post. “It’s embarrassing.”…
“What is the Obama administration’s weapon of choice in this battle for these young girls’ lives?” Palin asked. “Hashtagging tweets on social media! I kinda-sorta doubt a tweet will intimidate the kidnappers much. So, if you’re going to jump in and do something about these Islamic terrorists at all, then do it right, do it firmly, and kick their ass.”
She is echoing what other conservatives have been saying and, like them. misunderstanding what the hashtags are supposed to affect. And, with no sense of irony, saying how “ineffectual, naïve and insulting” it is to use Twitter to get out important messages. Because she would never do such a thing.Click here for reuse options!
