Sleeping Giants, along with other far-left groups like Media Matters for America, aims to drive conservative media off the web through social media campaigns directed at their advertisers. By scaring advertisers with phony allegations of “hate” and “bigotry” against conservative media, Sleeping Giants hopes to scare advertising revenue away from targeted websites. The group was founded by Matt Rivitz shortly after President Trump was elected in 2016.
After operating for over a year in anonymity, the founder of the organization was recently outed by a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation, which revealed the founder’s identity as Matt Rivitz, a San Francisco-based ad executive. Now, Sleeping Giants is frantically demanding that Twitter, their primary social media platform, censor accounts talking about their founder.
If they didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have standards at all. Doesn’t power corrupt?
