    Would it be wrong if it turns out the money is coming from an Obama Czar?

    In addition to the aforementioned Michael Kieschnick, SoSP was co-founded by James Rucker (a former director of MoveOn.org Political Action and Moveon.org Civic Action) and Becky Bond (a young woman who today is affiliated with Working Assets, US PIRG, and the New Organizing Institute). Said Bond: “Any serious commitment to wrestling control of the country from the Republican Party must include removing their political operatives from deciding who can vote and whose votes will count.”

    Hollywood Hit on Glenn Beck
    By Michelle Oddis (more by this author)
    Posted 08/13/2009 ET
    Updated 08/13/2009 ET

    As HUMAN EVENTS reported earlier a racially charged activist group called “Color of Change” founded by Van Jones, a special advisor to the Obama Administration, is trying to silence popular radio and Fox News personality Glenn Beck by calling for a boycott of Beck’s TV advertisers after he called President Obama a racist on the Fox and Friends morning news show.

    Claiming that Beck is race baiting “Color of Change” has bullied at least five of Beck’s big advertisers -- SC Johnson, Progressive Insurance, GEICO, Procter & Gamble and Lexis Nexis -- to pull their ads from Beck’s national cable program. The activist group has hired Hollywood’s high profile publicist Ken Sunshine to further instigate the boycott.

    Sunshine’s superstar clientele is huge (and very very liberal). The list includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Barbra Streisand, Michael Moore, John Mayer, Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, and recently the Jackson family just to name a few.

    Furthermore HUMAN EVENTS’ sister company RedState.com discovered a strange coincidence. The website URL ColorOfChange.org leads you to the activist group “Color of Change” website.
