Thread. 1. Biden’s #BloodySunday Order an Important Step in Promoting Voter Access civilrights.org/2021/03/07/bid… via @civilrightsorg
2. I think most of us could use a refresher on #BloodySunday. That includes me. I found a good detailed description at the Encyclopedia of #Alabama.encyclopediaofalabama.org/article/h-1876 ""Bloody Sunday" refers to the March 7, 1965, civil rights march"
3. The march was supposed to go 'from Selma to the capitol in Montgomery to protest the shooting death of activist Jimmie Lee Jackson. The roughly 600 marchers were violently driven back by Alabama State Troopers, Dallas County Sheriff's deputies, and a horse-mounted posse"

I know no one’s surprised, but we need to call it out anyway. Today the Republican Party sealed their legacy w/Trumpism. They’re now & forever the party of racism, white supremacy, neo-nazism, domestic terrorism, conspiracy theorists & fact deniers. They own this. #GOPCowards
Republicans of conscience, now is the time. There’s no “saving” your party at this point. Now is your fleeting opportunity to come over to the right side of history & join the Dems. @SenBillCassidy @SenatorBurr @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @MittRomney @BenSasse @SenToomey
For the other 43 - the #GOPCowards - us REAL patriots will see to it that you’re stripped of all power & your big $ donors drop you.

To the REAL patriots: FLOOD YOUR SENATORS’ PHONES. Tell them how sickened you are, as one of their constituents. Contact info to follow (thread)

China should put China 1st.

Ukraine should put Ukraine 1st.
Seeing a pattern?
If a country cannot manage its own affairs, how can it manage the affairs of others. You cannot "love thy neighbor" while treating your family like shit. #AmericaLast
@congressdotgov @HouseFloor @SenateFloor and @WhiteHouse betrayed American citizens. They betray America's trust. They are NOT complicit! They fail[ed] to comply with the Declaration & Constitution by which this country was founded. They act with purposeful disregard.
States are willful accomplices to the United States Federal Government.

ALL of America's private citizens and friends need to request our US Military cleanse our government! @USArmy #USArmy @USMC #USMC @USNavy #USNavy @usairforce #USAF @DeptofDefense #DoD @US_SpaceCom #SpaceX

Acting Principal Asst. US Attorney Ken Kohl says @TheJusticeDept has charged a man in connection with entering the office of @SpeakerPelosi during the #CapitolSiege.
Other charges against the man from #Alabama are related to his alleged possession of Molotov cocktails and firearms found in his truck parked near the US Capitol.
Richard “Bigo” Barnett of #Alabama has been identified as part of a pro-@realDonaldTrump group, 2A NWA Stand and is a self-described "white nationalist" who used to be an emergency medical technician in #Tennessee. Image

Why African Americans left the Republican Party

"This decline can be attributed to a general upswing in Lily-White challenges across the South – initiated with President Herbert Hoover’s blessing ."

Virginia, Texas, North Carolina, and Alabama

Part II - Southern Republican Party Politics at the State Level

"In four former Confederate states, the Lily-White movement not only succeeded in taking control of the local Republican party organization but subsequently used ... ImageImageImage
... this control to exclude blacks from participating in the party either entirely (North Carolina and Alabama) or nearly so (Virginia and Texas)."

Joyce Jones run for Mayor of Montevallo, #Alabama. "I ran on a platform of unity and inclusion. Living in the south, there's not a wide range of representation in government". Due to Covid's restriction, she used Facebook to get her message out.
#FacebookSurvivors @Avaaz
During her campaign, rumours appeared on FB that she wanted to 'defund the police'. "It was a surprise to me because I had never said anything like that.
I tried for days to combat the information that was put out about me... the DISINFORMATION".
#FacebookSurvivors @Avaaz
"It was impossible for me to combat it because the algorithm is built to give credit to the negative information. It tore apart our city, to the point that on Election day my grandmother, who was 88, and my mother [...] were actually turned away" at the poll station. @Avaaz

#GeorgiaOnMyMind
I am English, and I am elated that Georgia has turned #Blue and come out for Biden.
I'd like to tell you why.
Most of my followers are Pro Europe, #FBPE, and American has such a different system and history to here, this might help explain things a little.
1/
Biden is now leading in Georgia by 917 votes!
#Georgia has turned #Blue!
American politics is purposefully confusing, but THIS is hugely significant. Georgia is not any old state.

A win in Georgia would leave Biden one electoral vote short of the presidency. But there's more..

#Georgia is old slaver territory.
Georgia is where many freed slaves stayed.
Georgia is grass roots civil rights movement.
Georgia has seen huge voter suppression.
Georgia’s Black women have done the world proud.
91%
Just Look. 91% is #Historical.

As members of @SenateCommerce theatrically complain about how they are being "silenced", here are 4 deeply heartbreaking stories from #FacebookSurvivors that give a #warning about the type of pain millions of Americans could face if @facebook doesn't act. cc @guyro @andymstone:
"What happens on @Facebook does not stay on Facebook". Hate, racism, voter suppression. Just hear what happened when Joyce ran for mayor in a small town in #Alabama:
#FacebookSurvivor
"There was no scream or noise I could make that could let out the feeling inside my chest" -- Hannah's is a story of heartbreak and incredible courage. She's now suing @Facebook because its misinformation & hate crises are costing lives. #FacebookSurvivors #DetoxFacebook

I spent the weekend diving into the IRS Form 990's for the Tommy Tuberville Foundation after reading how so little of the money went to the mission of supporting veterans. I've been a veterans advocate for 10 yrs and seen a lot of these. Strap in for a long thread! #Alabama
I looked at the 990's published by ProPublica (projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/org…). You won't find them on the foundations website or any information about the officers, legal framework or donations. But, you will find out how AWESOME TOMMY IS and how much he loves the troops!
The accounting and paperwork is an absolute mess. Different forms every year, different addresses, wildly missed reporting numbers, totals that don't add up and bizarre financial choices. At a minimum the foundation has been incredibly poorly and unprofessionally managed.

Welcome to the #ArtOfTheGerrymander! 1/43

A Dem-map a day to explore:
* state political geography &
* unfairness of single-winner districts
@davesredist +2020 projections #ElectionTwitter

dailykos.com/stories/2019/1…
2/43 Our running total starts: 5D-8R (skipping AK, DE, ND, SD, RI, VT, WY, HI, ID, WV).

NB: I try to maintain communities of interest & relatively compact maps; but compromise for D-maximization (may not comply with local rules). And I apply VRA as >50% primary (not total) pop.
3/43 #ArtOfTheGerrymander: #Utah

First off are some red states with competitive suburban seats e.g. Salt Lake City. I'd rate UT-04 as competitive by default, but would lean D with @RepBenMcAdams' incumbency. #ElectionTwitter

Several new southern state polls from Tyson Group (some are a bit old though):

Alabama:
Trump 48% (+4)
Biden 44%

Florida:
Trump 44%
Biden 46% (+2)

Louisiana:
Trump 48% (+6)
Biden 42%

Mississippi:
Trump 50% (+10)
Biden 40%

Texas:
Trump 44%
Biden 48% (+4)
The #Alabama number is the most surprising to me. It marks nearly a 24% swing toward the Democrats from the 2016 results:

electoralpolls.com/alabama

Still, no other polls have shown this close a race there so we'll see if anything else comes close.
The #Louisiana number is also very surprising. Trump won it by 20 points last time. There have been 3 polls there this year:

Trump +6
Trump +16.4
Trump +7

electoralpolls.com/louisiana

Trump's still the heavy favorite to win (93% chance), but he's only up 8% in the average.
