This is OUR time...look at what we did for #TrigsCrew....that was us...not a political machine...us...By Gary P Jackson

As you know, a vile website known as Wonkette decided to use the occasion of Trig Palin's birthday to attack the special needs child, as well as his mother. I wrote about the coming together of people on Twitter and how Trig's Crew was formed. These wonderful people were able to contact Wonkette's advertisers, who when shown the kind of sewer rats their dollars were funding, immediately took action.
As Stacy Drake points out, Wonkette is paying the price for attacking a child with Down Syndrome.
At last count, 46 major corporations have vowed to never advertise with this group again. These are some of the nation's biggest corporations, and all were horrified to see where their money was going.
It should be noted that no one threatened to boycott any of these companies. Members of Trig's Crew, the name people on Twitter started calling themselves, merely pointed out the article and asked if the companies were OK with this. 46 were not. You can see the list and any updates here.
If you are looking to do business with good people, I highly recommend checking out the list of great companies and doing business with them.
This evil act by Wonkette galvanized a large group of Americans who have said enough is enough.
Debbie Joslin, the National GOP Committeewoman for Alaska, and friend of the Palin's wrote a lovely letter in support that tells her own story of seeing a handicapped child bullied by thugs, which you can read here.
John Nolte talked with DaTechGuy on Saturday about all of this. John gives everyone a great accounting of how all of this came together. He also talks about the left's treatment [and fear] of Sarah Palin. listen to the entire interview here.
Of Course, the left has gotten indignant about it. I mean how DARE America get pissed off when a bunch of gutter snipes attack a disabled child!
Andrew Sullivan, a pathetic conspiracy theorist with an unhealthy fixation on Sarah Palin's uterus, and someone I refuse to link to, pulled out the old stand-by left wing talking point, that Sarah is just using Trig as a "political prop." No other politician in my memory, who has children, has ever been accused of using them as props.
Funny, during the 2008 race, Barack Obama had his children with him and no one saw that as anything but a father with his girls. But for some reason, it's all just political theater when Sarah Palin is involved. If Sarah had kept her children hidden, they would be attacking her for that, by the way. All the left knows how to do is attack. They have nothing else going for them.
Sullivan was quickly denounced by everyone in Trig's Crew, which freaked the left out. They became very concerned that Trig's Crew was about to take down Sullivan.
Even Sarah Palin's creepy stalker Joe McGinniss got into the act. McGinniss jumped into the fray by tweeting a link to a website run by a member of Obama's Alaska Mafia, the hand picked crew Obama and Pete Rouse put together to harass Sarah Palin. Our readers know the Alaska Mafia story well, so no need to go over all of that.
Anyhow, the website Immoral Minority is run by Jesse Griffin, a real winner who dabbles in amateur pornography, and was let go from his job at a day care center in Alaska. [for "undisclosed reasons"] He's behind many of the conspiracy theories surrounding Sarah. He used his buddy, Denis Zaki, a stringer for CNN, to help "mainstream" his many deranged assertions.
Griffin along with Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon were frequent visitors with McGinniss while he was in Alaska stalking Sarah Palin and her family. I asked McGinniss, via Twitter, if he was just upset that no one was paying attention to him. He responded he'd never been happier. I bet.
It's telling that all the usual suspects have decided to get involved in this.
The bottom line is, as Nolte points out in his interview with DaTechGuy, this is all about attacking Sarah Palin, and sending her the message that the left will "weaponize" her children when she runs for President. The left has nothing left. None of their attacks on her have worked, because none of them are based in truth. Understanding they can't compete in the marketplace of ideas, they have decided to pull out their dog eared copies of Alinksy's Rules For Radicals and attack.
The problem with this is Sarah Palin probably understands Alinsky better than these losers do. She has proven she can turn Alinsky type attacks on her, back on the attackers. The people who attack her do so at their own peril. Sarah Palin knows how to fight. She fights like a girl!
It tells you how morally bankrupt the left has become though. Having nothing going for them, no ideas, no solutions, they are reduced to attacking disabled children in hopes of beating Sarah Palin. It's rather sad, when you think about it.
All I know for sure is I witnessed something last week that renewed my faith in mankind. I saw thousands of people come together and make a real difference. I saw great companies react to a vile attack on a beautiful boy. I also saw a lot of people come together and realize they indeed had the power to stand up against evil.
A lot of people realized their voices matter.
