A window opens onto the left-wing mind

Erica Payne is the founder of the Agenda Project and cofounder of the Democracy Alliance. John wrote about the Democracy Alliance in “A window opens onto the left-wing conspiracy.” Payne is an integral part of the left-wing machine.

I’m not sure how I worked my way onto her email list, but this morning she wrote me an unusual message. I’m in good company, though. The Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper received the same message and explains what Payne has in mind in “Activist encourages defacement of cover of Paul Ryan’s book.” Come to think of it, if you didn’t receive Payne’s message this morning, your pride should probably be wounded.

In his post Halper includes the image that Payne links to in her message, which she wants recipients to use to deface Ryan’s book. Here is Payne’s message:

Hi Scott,

Just a heads up, Paul Ryan’s new book comes out today and his publisher is furious! It turns out that they accidentally shipped it with the wrong cover, and they need your help to make things right.

We have the correct cover and it’s up to us to get it on as many of his books as possible, as soon as possible. The real cover is right here. Just print it out, take it to your nearest bookstore, and place it over the book jacket. Rep. Ryan is counting on us, let’s not let him down!

Remember to email us at [email protected] with any pictures you take of the corrected covers, and share them on social media with the tag #SaveGranny. We’ll let the publisher know you helped them out!

Payne is about as funny as cancer. I wrote her back:

Hi Erica: I appreciate your including me on your email distribution, but I think you are encouraging the criminal abuse of property. Are you so desperate to discourage Ryan’s ideas from seeing the light of day?


I’ll post an update if I hear back from her.
