50 Simple Things You Can Do To Fight the Right

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


Okay, it seems a shadowy group of progressive numerologists has decided that the number 50 is endowed with mystical properties that, harnessed effectively, will put the U.S. governance back on a rational footing and possibly levitate the Pentagon. First, we had “50 Ways to Save the Ocean,” now, from Earth Works Press (the folks who brought you “50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth,”)…”50 Simple Things You Can Do To Fight the Right,” a handbook crammed with useful information about what “YOU can do at home and in your community to defend America!”

What YOU can do is, among other things, “reclaim the Bible,” “take back the language,” “be a media watchdog,” and, yes, “give the Right a wedgie” (disappointingly, they mean “wedge issue”). The books tells you how. Click on the cover image to check it out.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
