Why were these black students refused a ride by @Uber? And why hasn't #FakeNewsCNN or anyone else in the liberal MSM covered this? Where is @AC360 @donlemon @Acosta @maddow @ChrisCuomo or #BLM? Where is the outrage? Clearly, this is and was discrimination. ##WalkAway
I guess this isn't part of the narrative #FakenewsMedia wants to cover. Time for black folks to #WalkAway. Any discrimination on any level is wrong and must be addressed. Don't let this story die. #WalkAway
Liberal MSM is more concerned about illegal aliens being refused services than taxpaying black citizens being denied services. This is horrible. #WalkAway

#Antifa #Antifascist #BLM #DanDonovan #TuesdayThoughts

Meet #GOP Congressman Daniel Michael Donovan Jr. (@RepDanDonovan) from New York’s 11th congressional district.

Daniel's bio today isn't because of his amazing behavior and civic duty. Please read on...
2/ Thread

On June 8th, 2018, Daniel decided to sponsor H.R.6054 - Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018.

The bill proposes a penalty for up to >15 years in prison< for wearing a mask.

Details (and link to bill) in screenshot below.

congress.gov/bill/115th-con…
3/ Thread

Daniel has been in the news. E.g. when his partner’s son was arrested for Heroin Possession.

What did he have to say? OH! He blamed his political opponent for the arrest…

Drug treatment? Nope! "Someone" got him out of the bust (below)

WTAF?

1/87-In 2016 @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism "woke" me to the massive corruption in our government:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS (#Globalists)

VS

WE THE PEOPLE (Patriots & @POTUS)

#MAGA #QAnon #GreatAwakening #WalkAway
2/87-This is going to be a LONG thread, for those in a hurry... I recommend the "Agenda Explained" series by @RockingMrE:

Start w/the "Globalist Agenda" in under 11 minutes! 👍🤓

3/87-I'd like to start by saying I'm NOT an expert on the #NWO. I'm simply a Patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why... as I listened to @realDonaldTrump speak about Globalism, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.

You asked about racial violence between cops and people of color.

Fundamentally, you're asking if #BLM is right.

Let's start a conversation about what we know - and what we don't - about police, bias, and the killing of our fellow citizens. (1/14)
Most of us would agree that a single death of an innocent person by a police officer is one too many.

Black or white.

Police departments agree. They have training & oversight to ensure shootings don't happen or officers are punished when an unjustifiable killing occurs.
#BLM argues that, regardless, the system isn't working; cops are still targeting black people w/ violence or avoiding punishment when caught.

It's a belief founded in America's very real & ugly history.

A brief review of that shameful past is here: wapo.st/2NqtYLD

Yes, I’m an angry #Democrat.

We’re not a reasonable party anymore. We’ve exhausted ourselves with conspiracies & outrage while ignoring facts & careful analysis.

Then we have the audacity to complain about the fatigue of it all.

Let’s review the party’s madness. (1/11)
Since our #2016Election loss, we have flopped in every direction to find an excuse for our failure.

Blame the 63M deplorable Trump voters.

Blame the #ElectoralCollege.

Blame Comey.

Blame the Russians.

No. Stop it. Blame Clinton, the DNC, & her primary voters. They suck.
About those #Russians.

We have assured ourselves that Trump is a Russian traitor. We’ve held up the #SteeleDossier as proof.

Nevermind that CIA Director Brennan gave it “no particular credence.”

Rather than let Mueller find the facts, we’ve already executed POTUS for treason.

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS globalnews.ca/news/4304951/c…

On the one hand, this article and takes from @yfreemark and others are very correct, and it's a trend I wish had been better recognized before.

But there's some technological fatalism here that doesn't recognize how Democratic strategies have helped create this alignment.
So let's start with one thing. This isn't about "coasts vs. heartland," or "economic anxiety," or any other dumb thing.

It has to do with Democratic strategists obsessed with an insanely simplistic and myopic view of the electorate and microtargetting subpopulations.
The geography to this is that the media outlets which most strongly shape political narratives are based in DC and New York, and smaller outlets with smaller budgets increasingly rely on syndicated columnists either based there or edited by them.

Nothing against DC or NY....

I think 98% of "REVERSE RACISM!!" yawping is BS, including a lot of affirmative action complaints, but this will never be true no matter how shamelessly people try to redefine the common and obvious meaning of 'racism,' and it's disgraceful to argue otherwise. Bigotry is bigotry.
The minute someone starts making a "well *my* bigotry is acceptable and not really racism because teh power structure" argument, then you have entered the world of what is known as "special pleading," and special pleading always merits hard scrutiny (and, usually, contempt).
And listen: the reason I normally do not engage in this arena on Twitter is precisely because I think that, despite sometimes getting behind the wrong avatars, the #BLM movement has a core, deeply powerful and socially important point. Which extends beyond mere police shootings.

What @Dloesch, @Benhowe and @NRATV are trying to do by breathlessly attacking @alyssa_milano because 1 event security guard she did not hire and we did not ask to be armed may have made a personal choice to carry a weapon is to distract you from the following things that matter:
1. The @NRA just appointed a man who sold arms to Iran, funded a dictator and a revolutionary group in Central America and destroyed evidence of the same, and who has a history of attacking LGBTQ and other comminities of Americans as their new president.
2. There is an ongoing and expanding investigation into the @NRA's Russian funding. In fact, during their convention, they hosted TulAmmo, a company with ties to the Kremlin and a recently-sanctioned Russian oligarch.

We literally have a civil right to protection from private violence. There is nothing “entitled” in seeking vindication of that right.
For scholarly discussion of this point, see scholarship.law.georgetown.edu/cgi/viewconten… by Robin West
The idea that the point of government is to protect people from private violence so they can participate civil society is not simply introduced by the Civil War Constitutional amendments…

To the white folx out here, always reminding us that you’re our allies: you can stop now. In case no one took the time to let you know this tiny detail, let me tell you now: WE KNOW OUR ALLIES BY WHAT THEY DO, NOT BY WHAT THEY SAY.
Don’t do this work looking your invitation to a barbecue, cookout, fiesta, luau, blengur or any variation thereof. WE WILL NOT BE HANDING OUT GOLD STARS AND TROPHIES TO OUR MOST “WOKE” WHITE SAVIORS.
If you do this work, let it be because you know the difference between right and wrong, because you care about the people, because justice is greater than egos and accolades.

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I'll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody'll dare
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"
Then.

1/
Besides,
They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.

This concept was touched on in my last thread of #DrainTheSwampUK but since listening to #EricRWeinstein discuss this on the #RubinReport I feel it needs a thread to explain it properly. See link from 90mins onwards. #TIM
The battle for our futures will be fought over who controls the information that we see rather than on any battlefield in the traditional sense, but make no mistake this battle has been going on for years and will continue to be fought for years too this is the #Swamp. #TIM
In Europe the #Swamp is the #EU working with big corporations to maintain control over the population. In the #US the #Swamp is also the giant technology companies working in conjunction with the #MSM & the Intelligence Community to spy on us. #TIM #DrainTheSwampUK #DrainTheSwamp

1) Today's story is called The Brink.

They never thought she'd lose, now we understand the #NWO plan to destroy America, see 1991 Bush I vid. Obama took over the process from Bush II and embarked on an 8 year wrecking ball. #QAnon #GreatAwakening @POTUS
2) For years rogue operatives have been getting installed. Shadow government/#DeepState. All centers of #Government. Controlled by the wealthiest on the planet, most rogue was the CIA. Goal was complete control to dismantle. Check Out Barry's Book: Post American World #QAnon
3) The systematic leaking of classified intel was everywhere, so was exposure of #military assets. Instead if de-funding military (bad optics), you starve thru corruption. Notice #Mattis has a massive audit of DOD? Think why.

I think I figured out the remaining key questions I had. #Treason by the #Cabal was obvious. I have laid it out earlier in this thread: threadreaderapp.com/thread/9460448…

...but knowing something = proving something
...especially when dealing with

#LSM #LyingSycophantMedia that will actively hide #Truth and invent/support #FakeNews, such as #RussiaCollusionLie

#CognitiveDissonance & #Tribalism that affect ability of "other side" to accept uncomfortable #TRUTH
3. So #POTUS needed to generate bullet-proof evidence of involvement by #DOJ/#FBI in the #Treason of the #Cabal/#DeepState...in part b/c they themselves could block/prevent the #TRUTH
...and in part b/c they had tried to destroy much of the evidence.

On 29 April 2015 at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, @HillaryClinton delivered the first policy paper of her campaign for the Democratic nomination. It was called "Race and Criminal Justice" and it was not only impressive, it was brilliant. 1/
By that time I knew Hillary Clinton. I mean I had come to understand how she thought about policy & how she viewed this second run.

She was sending a clear signal that day that most ignored or were simply unwilling acknowledge.

This was why she was running for President. 2/
In that speech she said things that no other major politician had had the guts to say. As many pointed she said things that President Obama wasn't able to say.

It was a courageous way to start her campaign. For a woman accused of always playing it safe this was her hell no. 3/

I said I was gonna make a "What I Wrote in 2017" thread and here it is--in no particular order:
1. This was mainly for the "what about men too" crowd who become deathly silent when abuse actually happens to men/boys. This was also pre-Weinstein, so I have thoughts...

2. This one blew up more than I thought it would, but I really just wanted to do right by Jemele Hill and her courage.

I retweet stupid Trumpies.

Why?

UNENLIGHTENED TRUMPIES ARE THE PERSONIFICATION OF STUPIDITY!

See them, acknowledge the lunacy, retweet, disengage, and move back to reality. Hope to never see or hear from the idiots again!
