On Fox News Sunday, George Will called the latest trend of “hashtag activism,” specifically from Michelle Obama and Malala Yousafzai with the #BringBackOurGirls movement, exactly what it is; “an exercise in self-esteem.”

Host Chris Wallace admitted to not being familiar with “hashtag activism” but explains that #BringBackOurGirls has been tweeted more than 2 million times. Will explained it as making people feel better about themselves as opposed to actually helping:

It’s an exercise in self esteem. I do not know how adults stand there, facing a camera, and say ‘Bring back our girls.’ Are these barbarians in the wilds of Nigeria supposed to check their Twitter accounts and say, ‘Uh-oh, Michelle Obama is very cross with us, we better change our behavior?’

Fellow panelist Brit Hume agreed and guffawed, “It’s trending! It’s trending on Twitter!”

Will continued:

Power is the ability to achieve intended effects and this is not intended to have any effect on the real world. It’s a little bit like environmentalism has become — the incandescent light bulb becomes the enemy. It has no effect whatever on the planet, but it makes people feel good about themselves.
