Stupefying hypocrisy – Founder of liberal hate group that harasses conservative sites now whines about being harassed after being outed.
In 2016 a liberal hate group called Sleeping Giants popped up with the sole
goal to harass advertisers that showed ads on conservative websites until
they stopped advertising on those sites, quite literally sending mobs of
online liberals to flood advertisers in a smear campaign, falsely accusing
the conservative sites of “hate” and “bigotry.”
Daily Caller exposed the founder as “read the article", an award-winning ad
copywriter based in San Francisco. Yes, the man is an ad copywriter who
also organizes online mobs to harass advertisers like the ones he copy-writes
Note– There is nothing wrong with remaining anonymous online, some do it
for safety purposes, some just because they like using certain user handles,
but when someone creates a group which deliberately organizes online mobs in
order to destroy the ability of others to earn a living, simply because they
disagree with their politics, especially a group that has been reported on
by major news outlets (Wapo), then the expectation of privacy via anonymity,
is no longer valid.

How successful were they in getting advertisers to stop advertising on those sites? That's the real question, otherwise the argument that they affected someone's ability to earn a living is hyperbole at best. Doesn't excuse what happened but Jesus Christ is the hyperbolic rhetoric getting old around here.
