I will no longer call myself
“A Liberal Marine.”

My ideals are not “liberal.” Today’s rightwing defines them that way.
And I won’t let them define me.

My ideals are not “progressive”, or “liberal”—they’re American.

And that’s what I am.
~ An American Marine
“Give me your tired, your poor...” are not “liberal ideas”—and it’s not the “Statue Of Liberalism.”

Wanting to be a beacon of hope and liberty, for the world’s “tempest-tost ”, should never be labeled with scorn, or attacked, by any American.
We are a #NationOfImmigrants.
We are the inheritors of the society our founders created.

The Constitution and “The New Colossus” are their “last will and testament.”

And as stewards of their creation, we’re duty-bound to protect their dream.

Let me explain to you why all y'all shld be very alarmed by the discussion around threats to the #14thAmendment even as it's framed as a threat solely to "non-citizens" having so called "anchor babies".
*A thread #BirthrightCitizenship
**Not a lawyer
Let me first just leave this here. #BirthrightCitizenship is already precedent but let's move on #14thAmendment…
First a brief history for those who don't know
the #14thAmendment was enacted by the reconstruction era GOP (oh yeah good ole party of Lincoln GOP) to ensure newly formerly enslaved blacks would now be citizens and granted equal protection under the law.

Um, you guys???? This is infinitely more important than @KanyeWest @JacobAWohl #Meuller the #14thAmendment or any other ridiculous & chaotic half truth the #Hivite cannibals want you to be talking about instead of ALL THIS EVIDENCE that they are all about to go all the way DOWN.
STAY FOCUSED on what is happening in our GOVERNMENT. All the rest of this is #HiviteTactics #MindControl games & distraction antics. It's meant to spin you up emotionally so you stop thinking logically and behave according to your FEELINGS instead of your ANALYSES. #QAnon @POTUS
Stay focused on things like arrests, indictments, etc that are related to crimes connected to #TheGreatAwakening.

Ugh. Trump lit Twitter on fire with this 14th amendment nonsense. Where/when did @realDonaldTrump say he would use an EO to repeal or otherwise override a provision of the 14th amendment? I see a lot of outrage about it but no source. Anyone? #TheGreatAwakening #QAnon #WWG1WGA
Generally, the bill of rights applies to what the States may or may not do to citizens w/in their state who are also under the jurisdiction of the United States. Meaning, states can't be more restrictive than the Constitution. It takes 2/3 majority vote to change the constitution
Before I get too deep into the weeds on this #14thAmendment #Constitution debate, I'll posit that @realDonaldTrump didn't actually make this claim as it's being represented, but rather he is looking for legal/Constitutional ways to overcome the HUGE PROBLEM of anchor babies.

Today marks the 150th anniversary of the 14th Amendment which was designed to give full citizenship to African Americans who had been formerly enslaved. #14thAmendment #CivilRights
The promise of full citizenship was meant to include the ability to participate equally in the political process. #CourtsMatter #VotingMatters #OTD
The 14th Amendment's relevance can't be overstated, especially in today's legal landscape. "We can only hope that, in the words of Frederick Douglass, it will continue to “give full freedom to every person without regard to race or color in the U.S.”…
