UPDATE! The Judge has been Blacked Out!
So, if you’ve been paying attention online, you may have seen the phrase, “Black this out,” being used to promote the next big money bomb on October 19th. You may have even noticed the masthead of the Daily Paul blacked out. I’ll admit, I found it confusing and strange for several days until I saw the following comment on someone’s facebook wall:
“I have gotten lots of questions about why my eyes are blacked out on (my) Profile and think this is a great Idea! Perfect opportunity to “Spread the word!! Ron Paul Supporters are the best Even the Media Admits it…”
The main point of the branding of this event is to take the ignoring of Ron Paul’s campaign by the mainstream media head on. In essence, we are challenging the media, “Go ahead, just try to black this out!”
It took me a couple hours to process it, but, okay, okay, now I get it! Part of the draw is its strangeness and the way to draw in people’s curiosity is to actually do the following with your profile photo for a few days.
When people ask you, “what’s up?” you simply send them to this post or to the event.
If you don’t know how to do this to your profile photo, just ask someone younger! Your computer’s basic paint program should do the trick with a simple “rectangle” tool.
The official website for BLACK THIS OUT is: www.blackthisout.com (Be sure to make your pledge.) You’ll find a widget and other tools for promoting this event here. For those of you with advanced computer skills, edit your photo to be black and white, increase the contrast and make the black box a bit transparent.
On October 19th, 2011, tens of thousands of Americans will stand together to send you a very clear message. We are sick of your lies and repeated attempts to dismiss Ron Paul as a 2012 GOP Frontrunner. You have only fueled our passion and our will to use our numbers against you. We’ll make this grassroots effort to donate to the Ron Paul campaign on this day one of the greatest donation efforts in history.
