Facebook Pro-Amnesty Lobby Runs Pro-Graham Ads as “Americans for a Conservative Direction”

Because when you think of Facebook’s bratty millionaire overlords and illegal alien amnesty, the first thing that comes to mind is conservatism.
What is even weirder is that Mark Zuckerberg, as part of an amnesty push coalition with Obama, is funding ads attacking ObamaCare in praise of Senator Lindsey Graham.
Essentially Obama Inc. is helping set up anti-Obama ads to make Senator Graham look good. A billion dollar liberal dotcom operating out of Menlo Park, California, is creating ads touting Graham as a voice for South Carolina’s conservative values.
We are in very strange and dishonest territory here.
The Mark Zuckerberg-backed organization pressing for immigration reform will launch its first wave of television ads Tuesday, in a move aimed at shoring up support for a large-scale immigration deal on the right, strategists for the group told POLITICO.
FWD.us, the organization formed to push Silicon Valley’s priorities in Washington, will advocate for a new immigration law through a subsidiary group created specifically to court conservatives. Americans for a Conservative Direction will spend seven figures to run ads in more than half a dozen states, according to strategists who sketched out the organization’s plans.
Despite being the subsidiary of one of the biggest internet companies around, Americans for a Conservative Direction has one of the crudest placeholder websites you can imagine and its Facebook campaign is not going well.
And its Facebook campaign isn’t going well either. Its fan page only has 17 likes and there are only comments from 4 people there, 3 out of 4 comments are negative.
Facebook could drive a lot more traffic to the page if it wanted to. Clearly it doesn’t care. It spent X amount of money on the ads to reassure amnesty politicians that it will provide them with some support, but it hasn’t even bothered to do the basics online. It’s ironic that a Republican online presence, even when overseen by Facebook, is so inept, but it’s not truly surprising. A sham is a sham and no one really wastes much time or effort investing in it.
