#SriLanka is reaping the whirlwind of #Hate first ethnically driven hate for the #Tamil people, and then religious hate for #Muslims.
Now they know painfully that Hate for a conveniently defined 'other' is destructive of everyone's prosperity, including your own.
It was #Hate for the 'other' that blinded the populace to the #Corruption of those in power who fuelled and directed the #Hatred and the #Bigotry as a smokescreen for their own #Corrupt #misgovernance.
When the #Flames of #Hatred are fanned by the #Bigots in power for their own selfish ends, and the mechanisms of institutional control are disabled by those same bigots, the flames cannot tell the intended victims from the bullies and their silent onlooker supporters.

Must note that #US has never called or asked #Saudi ruling #Klan to end politically motivated executions or help the dictatorship modernize its courts to ensure the minimum standards of legal fairness. US sold #Saudi trillions in arms & help improve its security @jakejsullivan
#US has so far refused to sanction a single #Saudi official involved in human rights crimes such as @pss_en @MhmdAlissa & others. #American policy has been clear & consisting for decades, support the ruling Klan & ignore its crimes. @WHNSC #Ukraine
#UK PM @BorisJohnson will meet mass executioner #MBS next week in spite of this massacre. This is the real #UK policy where #Arab victims of #UK -backed regimes are not seen or considered #bigotry

If you followed #FreedomConvoy, even supported it, did you really understand danger it poses to Canada? Maybe you waved away extremist elements, saying just a few "bad apples". You'd be deluding yourself. It's time to scratch below the surface, start here:
thewalrus.ca/ottawa-convoy/
Those various flags seen throughout the protest. They weren't one-offs or bad apples, they were embedded in the protest from the start. You saw them:
#Trump flags, Confederate flags, 3% flags, &, yes, Swastika flags (if you have one Nazi in a crowd, you've got a crowd of Nazis).
Think this is an exaggeration? Maybe start to examine what's actually driving these groups. Organizers of #TruckConvoy have a history of extremist views, from #Wexit to disgusting racist bigotry and hatred. It wasn't hidden, you just ignored it.
Start with #CanadaUnity

As I catch up on a rich, moving, diverse set of reporting and stories about 9/11 in a very emotional morning full of sobs, anger and vivid memories here is my recollection of the day’s events. My girlfriend at the time, Vibeke Fonnesbech and I had just come back from NYC where
We had visited my old offices, met friends and dined at the word trade centre where I had been working a few months before. I was at work, trading derivatives, on the phone to a broker in the WTC, when the first plane hit. He did not make it
We watched in horror the scenes from NYC when someone in the room screamed at the sight of the second plane headed straight towards the WTC and the sickening - let the ground swallow me - moment that followed when the plane hit and many of our lines with colleagues went dead

THREAD: Does @UCBerkeley supports #AcademicHinduphobia and #bigotry advanced by @SugataRay1 and @ISASatBerkeley. "Research-based scholarly discussions"? A great example of intellectual dishonesty! Let's see 1/n
As we showed in our letter, the speakers and conference resources have a history of advancing bigotry and #Hinduphobia, disparaging Hindu deities and supporting violent political movements. 2/n cohna.org/dismantlehindu…
One of the keynote speakers has called Shri Rama a "di**head" while another has created a short film that false projects the Ramayana as a racist epic that endorses casteism based on colonial theories. "Scholarly discussions"? 3/n

@RepMTG I heard your interview with @DavidBrodyCBN . I have a few observations.

1. Did you read the Mueller report? If you haven’t may I suggest volume one. It will show you how involved Russia was in the 2016 election.
2. @SpeakerPelosi is the Speaker of the House. She is in charge. You had a vote to rescind the mask mandate and it failed. That is how it works. If you don’t like it then quit.
3. By comparing this mask mandate to Nazi Germany is not only offensive, but ignorant. You have a choice in the House. Either follow the rules, get enough votes to change the rule, or quit.

In recent months, the global Hindu community has begun to have greater discussion about the subtle, and increasingly overt, bigotry and discrimination practicing Hindus face in academic and other spaces here in the U.S.
You may be aware that Hindu American students - as young as middle schoolers - are being confronted by classmates, asked if they are terrorists, simply for being practicing Hindus. Some Hindu American youth, traumatized, confused, and shamed by the ways in which Hinduism
is misrepresented and stereotyped in textbooks, in entertainment media, and on social media, are beginning to distance themselves from their families and their ancestral traditions. College campuses are a breeding ground for Hinduphobic encounters, in no small part because

It's not that bigotry against Jews or other ethnicities isn't a bad thing and can't be called out on their own, but @JackPosobiec and others who carry the "conservative media" label still virtue signal and play this game. This enables bigotry against whites and Christians.
The trend in popular media, and generally in our culture altogether, has been to tolerate expressed bigotry toward white people and/or Christianity without much, if any, pushback. Instead of confronting it or bucking the trend, conservative media engages in the same pandering.
The Nation of Islam is a dissident cult group wallowing in bigotry. Pick a group outside their narrow umbrella and they're generally bigoted toward them. Yet time and time again media figures ignore almost every objectionable thing about the group except "anti-semitism".

I'm going to tweet photos of some of the people who support @realDonaldTrump and the rest of this #IllegitimateRegime. Just to let the world know the company his oh-so-Christian and other supporters keep.
Be afraid. Then #FightBack

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO EMBRACE #Drumpf & his message of #hatred, #WhiteSupremacy, #intolerance, #racism, #bigotry, #xenophobia, #misogyny etc.
And after seeing these images, I want ONE notable #Christian preacher to explain to me & the rest of the world how/why s/he can support #Drumpf, whose message, history & lifestyle is antithetical to all that Jesus preached.
But not one will step forward b/c there IS no defense.

🔥“Tower of Lies” by longtime Trump Org exec Barbara Res urges Americans to #VoteHimOut, citing Trump's #racist, anti-Semitic & sexist behavior + his ability to LIE "so naturally...if you didn’t know the actual facts, he could slip something past you."
latimes.com/politics/story…
“He was able to control others, through LIES and exaggeration, with promises of money or jobs, through threats of lawsuits or exposure. He surrounded himself with yes-men, blamed others for his own failures, never took responsibility, and always stole credit.”💥

#TowerOfLies
🔥”These tactics are still at work, just deployed at the highest levels of the U.S. government, with all the #corruption and chaos that necessarily ensue.”

Okay...praying as I type and for my twitter friends as you read.

Trying to be very clear here.
Communication is a two way street.

My job is to be as clear as I can-and be humble and patient when others tell me they hear me say something-whether I intended it or not.
2/19
My job is to keep my “street” clean as possible and when “reviled to not revile in return” and to keep “entrusting myself to the one who judges rightly.”

If I believe someone is negatively interpreting or if someone is misrepresenting me intentionally- my job is to love.
3/19
If I believe-and hundreds or even thousands of others agree that I have been clear BUT there is one person I can serve by trying to be clearer - my job is to love that person.

So here is clarity- for ALL my twitter friends I love.

Many of us have known this for a while now but it's quickly becoming apparent that, especially after the recent #GeneralElectionResults2019, #Racism in the UK is, not only going to increase, but become even more brutal, widespread & acceptable, as #racists become emboldened by /1
the fact that the Gov itself & those right in the heart of it, not only don't *effectively* condemn #racism but are, in fact, guilty of it *themselves*.

Get ready to see A LOT more (and a lot WORSE) than the examples below, in the future (near & otherwise) against *every /2

#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

@RashidaTlaib @Ilhan The 63 million include "leaders" of the #GOP, who always have a mute button on when it comes to their Dear Leader's pronouncements!
Let's see how many Democratic POTUS wannabes step up, like here:
