Heather Martens – formerly of “Citizens for A “Safer” Supine Minnesota”, now with some other astroturf group that is, most likely, a re-branding of CSM, wrote a “Commentary” on Minnesota Public Radio today in re Rep. Cornish’s “Stand Your Ground” bill (HF 1467).
Here’s the “Commentary“.
I’ll have a piece out on it tomorrow. Actually, I’ve found 15 serious outright lies – as in, statements that are 180 degrees divergent from reality – and 2-3 major logical fallacies so far. So much, in fact, that I may break the piece up into, well, 15-18 pieces, running every half hour all day tomorrow.
The piece is that bad.
And there is just no way I should have all that fun by myself.
So I’m going to do something I haven’t done in years; I’m going to sound the horn.
Bloggers, Tweeter and Facebookers; it’s time for a good old-fashioned feeding frenzy; a Blog Swarm on Martens. And on MPR for printing a “commentary” that can’t pass even the most rudimentary fact-checking, as part of what is seeming more and more like an editorial position to start pushing for more gun control.
If you write a piece – a blog post, Facebook update or Tweet – about Martens and MPR, leave a note in the comment section. I’ll post a “Carnival of Truth” tomorrow recapping everyone’s efforts.
