Digital Direct Action

Lefty League actions are designed to reap maximum media exposure at minimum cost. We use social media and digital organizing to take offline events viral and effect real change.

Humiliate Trumpand the GOP

From our “Trump – Nixon” ad targeted to gullible Trump fans on Facebook to our “Trump – Zuckerberg 2020” billboards in four states, we’re bird-dogging the president and his billionaire backers throughout the digital landscape.

Exposing Big Tech inSilicon Valley

We’re using Facebook to troll Facebook, with viral fake ads, and critiques of the social network’s right-wing friendly policies targeted to Silicon Valley’s richest neighborhoods.

Dogging California'sLongest-Serving GOP Rep

Ken Calvert is infamous for three decades of self-dealing in Washington, DC. The Really Online Lefty League PAC took action in the California primary to remind CA-42 voters of his past, and to boost the viable Democratic challenger.

Activating the Base

The Lefty League builds political power by promoting populist left issues: Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, free college; $15 minimum wage, and a federal job guarantee. When we vote, we win.

Trolling the “Elite”

We are a movement off the people, accountable to the people. We organize and amplify online to ensure that the powerful⁠—both influential individuals and organizations⁠—are accountable, too.

Your Op Goes Here

The Lefty League advisors are always interested in discussing new actions with potential sponsors. Please reach out!

In the media

The difference between media attention and virality and a flop is as simple as network plus sustained effort. We are media masters and resistance is futile.
