Operation Backfire: The Social Media Edition

Back in February, I shared with you the Leftist version of the Theory of Unintended Consequences which I called Operation Backfire.

And it seems like every week since there’s another prime example of the Left’s unfortunate inability to keep a grand plan from blowing up in their faces like a trick cigar.

But they never learn, do they?

The Left always pushes too hard and too far.

Inevitably, their efforts backfire spectacularly.

There’ve been countless examples of Operation Backfire over the last couple years — the defeat of Hillary Clinton being the most consequential.

But there was also the media blitz to promote David Hogg and the anti-NRA kids.

What happened?

The NRA went from about five million members to six million members in a couple of months.

Well, this week we have the latest example of Operation Backfire.

When CRTV’s Allie Beth Stuckey created a parody interview video with Socialist It Girl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Left went ballistic.

They reported the video to Facebook and Twitter.

They published “fact-checking” articles as if anybody with half a brain thought Stuckey was trying to pass off a parody as real.

And the flying monkeys descended demanding Stuckey’s head for making their latest media crush look like an idiot.

On Monday, I decided to start following Allie Beth on Twitter. At the time she had either 84K or 87K followers – I don’t remember the exact number.

Well, here’s how many followers she has as of now:

Operation Backfire


By pushing and pushing over this parody video, Allie Beth Stuckey is gaining popularity and reaching a wider audience.

Congrats, Leftists!

See, this is why I say they’ll never learn.

I know a lot of you will (jokingly sometimes) say, “Dianny, don’t say anything. We don’t want them to stop doing it!”

But they can’t stop.

That’s what you gotta understand.

It doesn’t matter how many times Operation Backfire happens, Leftists will inevitably set themselves up for another one before the smoke even clears.

The problem the Left has can be summed up in two words: Arrogance and Ignorance.

They’re incapable of thinking things through.

And because they’re so convinced of their own righteousness, they simply assume that everybody thinks and believes the way they do.

If they’re outraged over a parody video that makes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez look like an imbecile, then, EVERYBODY must be equally outraged.

So they push and they push.

And they push – arrogantly marching forward thinking the whole world is falling in lock-step behind them.

But we aren’t falling in lock-step.

The majority of Americans don’t agree with them.

But like the ugly American who thinks that Frenchman will understand him better if he shouts a little louder, the Left thinks the only thing preventing us from marching to their drum is they aren’t being loud enough.

So they push and they push. And they keep pushing.

Before they realize it, they’ve pushed too far. Nobody is falling in line behind them. Instead, we’re doing the exact opposite of what they demanded.

Like joining and donating to the NRA instead of demanding they be destroyed.

Like following Allie Beth Stuckey on Twitter because we think she’s hilarious.

That is Operation Backfire.

It’s like science.

By the way, if you aren’t following Allie Beth Stuckey, you really should.

She’s actually pretty damn funny.

    Insanity is doing the exact same thing over and over expecting a different result. In conclusion, leftists are insane.

    The Left insists on calling themselves “Progressive”. They have done themselves a disservice by choosing that name, because that choice has made it difficult for them to admit the failure of any plan they put forth: after all, failure is not very progressive, is it. It also has forced them to come up with plans that are “fresh” and “bold”, ignoring more tried and true solutions that have a long track record of success.

    When their plans fail (as they usually do), the failure is never caused by the plan itself, but by a failure in execution: they didn’t try hard enough.

    If a Progressive is convinced they can extinguish a candle with butane, the spreading fire, in their mind, is not evidence that their plan failed, but that they need more butane.

    Does it make me bad because this makes me feel good?

    If only Obama could have been parodied to the level Ocasio-Cortez we may have spared been 8 years of Fundamental Transformation.

    That’s why the Left is upset. They literally see her as their next Messiah; one to three terms in the House, a term or two in the Senate, then she runs for President. I get how they think.

      What the Left fails to grasp is their shielding and defense of Obama pushed too hard and too far. Their anger over Ocasio-Cortez not being bulletproof (satire-wise) is their own damn fault.
