I can’t help but wonder - still - whether these calls “angry and threatening calls” just happened to start around the same time that word began to spread through conservative-leaning channels of the Canadian blogosphere that there was, in fact, another “Green Shift” out there; one that found the Liberals’ apparent imitation far from flattering? Perhaps it’s time to revisit the ITQ Online Outrage Tracker, which has the full timeline of a controversy that went from zero to headline news in just one day.
I just find it difficult to come up with a plausible scenario in which an ordinary, non-politically motivated person looking for more information on the Liberals’ Green Shift would be so outraged by a domain name collision that they would take the time to email, fax and even call up the company in question, just to lambaste the owners over a supposed “association” with the Liberal Party — especially after the squabble between the competing Green Shift-ers went public.
Me, a few days ago:
Does anyone really doubt the "deluge" of emails she received where not, in part, an orchestrated fake outrage campaign from Cons, maybe even some Dippers. I mean, sure we all know the details here, but most people just saw a headline, no real genuine motivation to feel inspiration for an email. No, the response she received, a good chunk of it, was from partisan Conservatives, the irony being they actually have no respect for tree hugger enterprises.
It's nice to see someone in the media can't understand why "casual" non-partisans would be so outraged, that they just had to email the company to vent. The great irony, she is trumpeting the "angry" calls to support the idea of damage, when in fact those calls and emails are predominately from people who believe the whole green movement is a fraud, perpetrated by lefty socialists, based on myths. I wonder if Jennifer Wright realizes she has become a pawn in a political dance, empowered by people who are really her enemy, attacking those that are the sympathetic.
Let Jennifer Wright know, that she is being played the fool:
