"Change.org" is just more of the same

A few days ago I got a political action email from "the Change.org Team in support of Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund" asking me to write to the Discovery Channel to "express my disappointment and to urge them to drop Sarah Palen's new show".

How typical.

The tactic for political engagement of trying to prevent an opponent to be heard is utterly loathsome.

I can easily hypothesize an opposite case, say that doctrinaire fundy religionists where urging the cancellation of shows that favored some favored 'progressive' viewpoints and people. I am absolutely sure that the folks at Change.org would be outraged.
