Pranksters Pwn ‘Homeless Tax’ Opponents Yet Again
The big business interests working against November’s tax measure to fund homeless services have been hilariously trolled once again. Some online pranksters keep buying up the web domains and social media accounts that anti-tax groups want to use, and are posting satirical websites with fake quotes on those domains.
The big-money, Chamber of Commerce-backed No On Prop C campaign has been slow-footed to get its website up and running, so some clever trolls have created the parody website NoOnNoOnPropC.com — complete with fake Republican party and Libertarian party logos. This may be the same group of prankster peeps who bought up the RightPriorityWrongApproach domain when the Chamber of Commerce announced that phrase as their official slogan last month. The Chamber quickly changed their slogan to “No Plan, No Accountability,” and sure enough, the jokers bought up that domain too.
All three parody sites now direct to NoOnNoOnPropC.com. The tricksters have also grabbed the No on Prop C – No Plan, No Accountability Facebook account on which they post mock messages, and the No On No On Prop. C Twitter account already has 34 times more followers than the real No On Prop. C twitter account has. Give ‘em a follow and add to that discrepancy!
Most importantly, the NoOnNoOnPropC website is tracking all of the corporate donations coming in to defeat the tax measure.
Nicknamed Our City, Our Home, Prop C is November’s proposed 0.5% tax increase on corporations that make more than $50 million per year. These corporations recently benefited from the huge Trump tax cut.
But they’re not getting cut any slack from the online mischief-makers who keep grabbing up their domains and social media accounts.
