Can this poodle wearing a tinfoil hat get more fans than Glenn Beck?


Can this poodle wearing a tinfoil hat get more fans than Glenn Beck? Facebook Fan Page

This facebook campaign really caught my attention, (and the attention of another 197,773 people) but I wonder, how we harness this mass frustration against Glenn Beck and convert it into a social/political movement towards change?

Or is knowing we are not alone in our opinions a viable first step?

  1. My guess, if by “fan” you mean it’s origin as abrev. for “fanatic” rather than someone who follows with mild enthusiasm, I don’t think the poodle, or even cats riding Rhoombas will get more. I’d imagine that if you share Beck’s apparent world views, he would seem one of the last hopes for humanity. It’s a qualitatively different thing. I don’t think you can often change the thinking of fanatics, but you might be able to discredit them in the eyes of someone slowly drifting towards BeckDittoHeadness. But you must avoid any loss of credibility yourself so do not fight hype with hype or anything disprovable.
