Does anyone really have to wonder why President Donald Trump continually uses Twitter to reach the American people? If you’re still scratching your head on the answer to that obvious question, just take a look at just one example of the fake news that was paraded before the public this past weekend; his first weekend in the White House.
A writer for Time magazine wrongly reported that the bust of Martin Luther King Jr. was removed from the Oval Office by President Trump. This was all speculation and rumor. It never happened. At the time the President was bringing back the bust of Winston Churchill into the Oval Office, the bust of Martin Luther King Jr. was actually obscured from eye-sight by both a door as well as a federal agent. So, of course, the media jumped to false conclusions hoping to yet again promote a negative view of the new President. And, although the Time reporter did apologize and also issued a correction, by then the story had already gone viral and the damage was done. Thank the Lord for Twitter. At least there is one avenue of outreach that doesn’t have to be tainted by the biased press before it’s released.
With this in mind, all those interested in bringing attention to the March for Life in Washington D.C this Friday should take a cue from our President by using Twitter and other social media outlets in droves. The secular press is still gushing and drooling and in utter awe over the numbers that showed up in D.C. and elsewhere last Saturday, for the so-called “Women’s March,” as if such a turn-out has never been seen by the likes of humans before. And yet (Newsflash!) the March for Life has been bringing hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens to Washington for decades. And what do we see and hear? Crickets, quite frankly.
As Students for Life President, Kristan Hawkins, explained on my radio program, what trends on Twitter is big news. But to trend we have to get busy.
Let’s create a “Twitter Storm” with the #WhyWeMarch hashtag!
A pro-life Twitter Storm worked wonders a few years ago, forcing the news noses to stop ignoring the criminal trial of notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell. There is no reason we can’t do that again. And the timing couldn’t be better. Some media will have to show up on Friday as top White House Advisor and long-time pro-life activist Kellyanne Conway is one of the keynote speakers for the noon rally.
Each one of you can make a difference!
