Beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, and for the following 24 hours, the Jewish Funds for Justice plans to tweet the heck out of Glenn Beck.
The social justice group plans to unleash a “Twitterstorm” on the Fox News host to protest his recent remarks mocking the faith-based idea of “social justice.” JFSJ has collected more than 1,500 haikus (Haik U Beck, they call it) mocking Beck.
The group plans to start tweeting the verses to Beck’s personal Twitter account, one every minute, “to confront Glenn Beck about his bizarre and incongruous opinion that there is no place for social and economic justice in religion.”
Among the haiku that will be sent to @GlennBeck:
And Jesus said to
All his hungry disciples
Hands off my fish, chumps.
It is so quiet
Except of course for Glenn Beck
He’s never quiet.”
If there are churches
that have YOU on their websites
Please Lord help us all.
The group claims this will be “the first large-scale Twitter protest of its kind.” As a protest, this is creative, but it seems more likely to just create more publicity for Beck. And doesn’t Glenn Beck seem like the kind of person who likes attracting a lot of attention? Is this creative or just counterproductive?
Maybe Beck will get the message: No social justice, no peace.
