In downtown Portland Oregon on July 4th. Here we have the customary flag burning at the previous home of the elk statue in front of the Justice Center. #Portlandprotest #blacklivesmatter  #PDXprotests #pdx #portlandoregon #blm #4thofJuly #portland
So many fireworks in just the 20 minutes I’ve been here. Some folks in the crowd definitely are against the fireworks, either due to safety or cause they freak people out into thinking it’s a flashbang or gunfire. #Portlandprotest #fireworks #blm #blacklivesmatter #4thofJuly #pdx
Right now it’s about 500-750 people here in front of the Justice Center just chilling with some folks lighting fireworks. #Portlandprotest #blacklivesmatter  #PDXprotests #pdx #portlandoregon #blm #acab #4thofJuly #portland #Fireworks

Dr. King believed that we would "gain our freedom in America because the goal of America is freedom" He believed in the American promise of equality referring to the "sacred heritage of our nation and the eternal will of God".
#4thofJuly #FourthofJuly2020
On this Independence Day I ask you to consider a very simple question? Could Dr. King have spoken freely, marched peacefully and changed his country if he lived in the Soviet Union in the 60s.

As we watch the good people of Hong Kong lose the rights and freedoms we
take for granted - I think we should all stop a moment and thank God. We owe a great debt to our Founders for their idealistic vision, those who fought and died to keep the dream alive, and those who spoke for all to share these God given rights.

Happy 244th Birthday America.

1/ “I love America more than any other country in the world and, exactly for that reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” - James Baldwin

Reflections on #4thofJuly2020

There is an attempt to cultivate fear that the movement pressing for racial justice,
2/ trying to fix our justice system, & remove symbols that reinforce white supremacy is REALLY trying to "destroy America" or erase its history or past. Fear is a powerful force. It stifles imagination, raises defenses & prohibits empathy. It causes us to hear things not there.
3/ When we say "systemic racism" or "America's original sin" or critique the paradoxically themed "Independence Day", other things are heard. Here's a quick rundown.

I recently had a conversation with a self described "middle aged, very conservative white guy."

“Your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence...”

Non-Natives before you post videos like this make sure you first ask and accurately state what is going on. He didn't just start dancing, he's counting coup. When we dance in the face of the enemy, it's never just "dancing", it's ceremony, prayer, medicine, courage and mercy.
For you Non-Natives, during intertribal battles and war, the ultimate honor or act of bravery was to count coup - meaning to get close enough to touch an enemy without causing harm or death.
Woke up to see this getting attention and see a lot of Non-Natives following the lead of the non-Native filming who said "That's a bessing, sir". To be clear, it was not a blessing 🤣 it was an act of war, it was disgracing, shaming and defeating the officer by showing mercy.

This is an example of modern far-right propaganda intended to stoke fear using a false narrative.

I want to break down some of the ways in which we can identify this as a complete fabrication.

> Overall Theme: Flag Burning

Just to give some context, flag burning has a history of being very offensive to certain folks!

Although the Supreme Court has ruled it as constitionally protected speech decades ago [source] aclu.org/other/aclu-his…
> Overall Theme: Flag Burning

Trump, earlier this year, not respecting 1A, tweeted that those who burn the flag are, by definition, "lowlifes".

This tells people what they are to believe. How they should think about the topic when it comes up.

PSA: Illicit fireworks rattle NYC. I know it's American tradition, and we're all desperate for some jubilation, but if folks knew the grim colonial-racist history, they'd be less inclined to see fireworks as celebratory. Remedial history with a dash of science below. #4thofJuly
(2) The primary gunpowder in fireworks is potassium nitrate, commonly known as saltpeter. In the young United States, saltpeter was imported from the British India colonies.
(3) During the Civil War, after the Trent Affair, the British government suspended the saltpeter supply to the U.S. It was eventually restored, but the Union blocked the Confederacy from access to the (im)ports.

🇺🇸Just Remember Why Our Freedom Is So Important. We live in the most free country in the world but it’s important to know why we have that right.

Here is a little reminder, AND a WHOLE LOT of perspective....
Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

5 signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.
12 had their homes ransacked and burned.
2 lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army,
another had two sons captured.
9 of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.
They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they?

24 were lawyers and jurists. 11 were merchants,

Just gonna throw some gasoline on this fire and draw a hard line here. Those of you pretending that mask wearing is a violation of your civil liberties are selfishly killing people, ruining our economy and are why we are still dealing with this epidemic writ large.
You want to talk about "love thy neighbor" PUT A FUCKING MASK ON. You don't have the right to make someone sick because of your choices. Just like you have freedom of speech but can't yell "FIRE" in a movie theater.This world where we are at war with facts because science doesn't
fit your personal solipsistic agenda is horrific. Facts are: Taiwan did NOT implement a lockdown, but had mandatory universal mask wearing. It has a population of 24 million and experienced 441 cases and 7 deaths.
And now here in the US...

At @WhiteHouse #SocialMediaSummit, @POTUS says "this is a historic day" as never before have so many online journalists and social media influencers have come together.
"You reach more people than any television network broadcast by far," adds @POTUS.
Faint praise for @Scavino45 -- @POTUS says he wasn't so good at running clubs but he was always looking at his computer screen.

A comment made by the media on the #4thofJuly has been bothering me off and on for the last several days. They said that Trump's speech was 8th grade history. Notice they didn't say it was wrong. They instead inferred that it was missing nuances.
In other words, what they are really saying is that the speech was missing the negative spin/propaganda that kids learn from the left in high school and college about America. Anyone can sit and nitpick something to make even the best thing seem bad.
Trump's speech celebrated America and it's achievements/contributions. To the fake media & left, this world view must be tempered by listing all the "bad" things the USA has done. Their " US history" is as one sided as any, except it's directed to the negative.
