As the Palinista community is well-aware, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin yesterday posted a Facebook Status in support of Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, who was told “his choice of reading materials offends other members of his unit.” So, what was this “offensive” reading material? The US Army Band member was backstage reading books by David Limbaugh and Mark Levin. Gov. Palin followed her first Status immediately by two more Facebook Statuses inviting readers to post photos of themselves posing with liberty-loving books. One showed Gov. Palin with a copy of Mark Levin’s Liberty vs. Tyranny and the final Status of the trio showed a copy of Levin’s Ameritopia.
Palinistas rose to the call throughout the afternoon on Twitter and Facebook, with Twitchy doing a news story on the Twitter posts, including two Tweets by US for Palin publisher, Ron Devito. The stack consisted of Tweets from big names like Mark Levin and Jedediah Bila to ordinary conservatives who answered Gov. Palin’s call.
A hashtag #ShowYourSupportForLiberty was born to support this effort on Twitter.
