I have put my first bumper sticker on my new car. It simply says "I resist". I have one or two more I can give away; if you'd like one, ping me here or personally.

Moveon.org are looking for volunteers to help find and contact the companies whose ads are appearing on breitbart.com - see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1d3uLPk-TfwmpWUozHwR3jh--n3VV0e6odT-47sQhm8o/edit for details and how to participate. You have to turn off your ad blocker, obviously, and if you want they have a convenient browser extension for Firefox and for Chrome to help you out.

These advertisers are called "hidden" because by and large they likely do not know where they are advertising. Instead a third-party ad broker sells spaces that these companies purchase from the broker. They simply collect revenue without any awareness of the context in which their ads appear. So goes advertising on the Internet now. The question becomes "Will these companies care once told that their ads are appearing on breitbart.com?"

If you'd like to help find out, check the Google doc linked above.

Not relevant at all to your post, but I have three bumper stickers on my car. The one that says "Never Trump" went on in early 2016 and will stay until the day he leaves office. The one that says "Cruz 2020" went on the day after Trump won the nomination, and will stay there until Cruz pisses me off sufficiently, which I fear is likely to happen sooner or later. And the one that says "196884=196883+1" causes some bafflement, but when anyone recognizes its significance, I know I've found a true compadre.
