DGA tweets call for Facebook’s Zuckerberg to cancel Christie fundraiser


No, for real.  The Democratic Governors Association did that.


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is to host a fundraiser for Governor Chris Christie.

That does not suit! How dare Mark Zuckerberg support someone he likes! Doesn’t he know he’s an evil Rethuglican? Punish! Punish like the wind! From the DGA:

Stop Zuck’s Christie Fundraiser!

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is hosting a fundraiser for right-wing Republican darling Chris Christie.
Sign the form at the right to tell Zuckerberg to cancel his fundraiser and stop funding Gov. Christie’s re-election campaign.

Stop Zuck! With exclamation point, because it’s totally nefarious and urgent. Also, right-wing? Geez Louise. They also posted to their Facebook page.

@politicalstile @heatherhaddon @demgovs They did create FB page to alert ppl of petition. But comments r pro-Christie! facebook.com/supportdemocra…

Bless your hearts.

Those who believe in freedom of thought and the diversity of ideas weigh in. Also, those who aren’t petty and puerile.

.@charlescwcooke @demgovs Does that really work? I’ll give it a try: “I’m calling on all Americans to stop giving money to Democrats.”

CLUCK CLUCK CLUCK-> MT @demgovsWe’re calling on Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to cancel his fundraiser for Gov Christie.

— MoxieMom (@moxiemom) January 24, 2013

And this Twitter user wins with the best summation.

@demgovsZuckerberg can fundraise for whoever he wants, maniacs.

—Christine(@cmdeb) January 24, 2013

But the RGA comes up with the ultimate oh, snap.

We’re not surprised to see @demgovs more concerned with Zuckerberg than winning governors races. It’s why they only have 19 out of 50 govs.

Update, Friday, Jan. 25:

Aw, did the DGA chicken out?

Hmm. The DGA’s petition calling on Zuckerberg to cancel Christie fundraiser is no longer available. Cache: bit.ly/XAWsz6

Update: Well look at that. The DGA deleted the tweet linking the “Stop Zuck” petition. Too bad Twitchy is forever.
