#HASHTAG ARMY

The lovely (and brilliant) Tamara says it better than I EVER could!

I’m reminded of the joke that all the people running around with “Free Tibet!” stickers on their cars would have been horrified if  Dubya had woken up one morning and decided to send the 82nd Airborne to actually, you know, free Tibet. “I didn’t mean like that!

Exactly!

Hashtag, smashtag – it’s great to believe an injustice is being perpetrated, and that something needs to be done.  But just placing a bumper sticker or hashtagging something relevant on Twitter isn’t going to accomplish squat! (Mrs. Obama!)

ACTION is needed.

The Red Chinese aren’t going to give a hoot if some teens gather excitedly in Pittsburgh to hear Richard Gere wax eloquently regarding the poor Tibetans plight.

Frankly, I suspect even if every college student worldwide sent the Red Chinese government a letter no hoot would be given.  Because the PRC knows the truth –

Power grows out of the barrel of a gun – Mao Tse Tung

And, while we’re on the subject, it’s not a hashtag, number sign or even a pound sign.

It’s an octothorpe!

  1. But it makes them FEEL good! And in our shallow society, that’s all that’s important.
