My father was born 130 years ago on the #FourthofJuly

Here he is in #WashingtonDC in 1913 with the #suffragists in their way to try to speak to President Wilson.

Surrounded by women.

The victor in the Civil War wasn’t the ‘North’. It was the United States. We beat a violent, traitorous faction.

But that faction lived on through Jim Crow, the ‘Southern Strategy’, now MAGA…

The GOP, Fox & more are infected by the faction. The insurrection is ongoing.
The key tool being used by the faction now is the Big Lie.

They seek to limit access to the ballot box and institutionalize the ability of the faction’s current party - the GOP - to overturn election results.

They seek to defeat the US from the inside, but it’s the same war.
The goal is to rule from the minority. Their coalition is strong & disciplined and includes:

Fox, OAN, Sinclair, Daily Wire, Breitbart, White Evangelical churches, paramilitary groups, Federalist Society, Judicial Watch, Council for National Policy & the Republican Party & more.

A #July4th Thread 🧵:

What to the Immigrant Christian is the 4th of July?

Allow me to share a few thoughts from the perspective of a Christian who also happens to be an immigrant; one also celebrating 10 years as an immigrant in the US. 1/13
I was born & raised in a loving Christian home in Mumbai, India. I grew up privileged & patriotic.

My privileged upbringing made it easier to love my birth country. I wanted to grow up and work for my country - either in armed services, civil services or the Indian Cricket Team.
Then, my parents decided to uproot our lives & join extended family in the US. They wanted to give my sister & I the best education and with me finishing High School, the timing was right.

So we sold everything, packed up our lives & moved to a country we’d never been before.

Happy #4thofJuly.

As a warm up for later, I'm going to review the The Star-Spangled Banner.

And you might go "What in the hell is this nonsense?"

It's the original verses.
Okay. First of all. What's the deal with Spangled.

It's called that because the US flag is covered in asterisks. Which is our way of swearing on our flag without the squares realizing it.

Betsy Ross LOVED to swear in secret.
So it starts out asking me if I'm a morning person of some bullshit.

I'm not.

Okay. Starting my live stream review of the 2000 film The Patriot. It’s a British comedy that makes fun of America’s Brexit.

It stars Mel Gibson, the inventor of guitars and main voice character in certain audio tapes.

Oh, god. It starts out with him talking about religion. Not a great sign.
Wait. This is the Postman?? Sesame Street? Make up your mind.

Apparently there are 13 united states.

Excuse me. There's only 1. And that's the USA of A.
Uh. I think they're complaining about their politics class. I think they must have failed it or something.

I think they're pissed at their teacher.

Short thread, as we approach July 4th about the Johnson–Jeffries race riots in America and the suffering of the Jews in Europe, as detailed by the great Jewish & Zionist leader, Vladimir Ze’ev Jabotinsky, in his essay "Homo Homini Lupus,” or “Man is As a Wolf to Other Men." Johnson standing over Jeffr...
On July 4th a boxing match took place between Jack Johnson & Jack Jeffries. Johnson was the reigning heavyweight champ, and only the second African-American to hold that title.

Jeffries, who was white, had been heavyweight champ but refused to fight Johnson & retired
Jeffries announced he would “reclaim the heavyweight championship for the white race.” He became the “Great White Hope" in "the fight of the century.”

The @nytimes warned, “If the black man wins, thousands of his ignorant brothers will misinterpret his victory.”

Johnson won.

"There is a clear difference" since @JoeBiden took office "that we were not on" when he was inaugurated, replies @PressSec when asked if @POTUS45 deserves any credit for #CoronavirusVaccine development.
Americans "looking for facts" about #CoronavirusVaccines and "not worried too much about applause from six months ago," adds @PressSec.
"Teachers remain prioritized" for #CoronavirusVaccines in advance of the mandate by @POTUS that by May 1 all adults will be eligible for inoculations in every state, says @PressSec.

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

Today is a good day to read the Declaration of Independence with an eye toward its meaning and to place it into the context of today.

A #4thofJuly thread
The Declaration of Independence was our statement to the world that we will not allow ourselves to be ruled by a tyrant who would do us harm. We must now ask ourselves if we continue to live up to that sentiment. The following represents that which we separated ourselves from.
He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

- trump refuses to comply with legally issued subpoenas.
- trump is literally individual-1 named in a crime his attorney went to prison for.

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."

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, #4thofJuly
the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. #4thofJuly
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. #4thofJuly

I am incredibly blessed to live in this nation where I am free to live a life of my own making.

I can worship God freely & openly with no fear of imprisonment.

I can criticize my government loudly & publicly without getting "disappeared". (1/4)
I can pick any job I want to have without worrying about being turned down because of my ethnicity or sex.

I get paid the same as my male counterparts for the same job & we can both compete for the same roles. (2/4)
I can have a diverse group of friends who think, look or live differently than me & no one would bat an eye.

America isn't perfect. What makes America great is the fact that we are constantly working to get closer to our ideals of freedom. (3/4)

“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...”

- Frederick Douglass


“...your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy...”

- Frederick Douglass


“...a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.”

- Frederick Douglass
