Corporations know full well that boycotts don't have to be absolute to be extremely effective. If their revenues drops off, profits dip, or investors back way, many CEOs know their boards will fire them.

So now Black Lives Matter has finally the nation's full attention. #BLM
For the people who want to pretend that the movement against voter suppression and #BLM are not the same, you're dead wrong.

Black Lives Matter had it roots in the protests of young people - students - who took over the governor's office in FL after Travon Martin's death.
Their goal was to change the Stand Your Ground laws instrumental in that killing.

Their movement became one of political activism and voter turnout when they embarked on changing the laws because they needed to increase voter participation to elect new people to the legislature.

17.01/ Did I miss anything over Shabbas? OHHH!

I knew it! I knew it would be announced on Shabbat! I'm late for all the celebrations, but OH MAN

#BidenWins! It will take time to process, but this is an incredible day for America
17.02a/ OMG Barukh Dayan ha-Emet, two giants of Torah passed away over Shabbat. Oh no!

Rav Dovid Feinstein z'l, son of Rav Moshe Feinstein z'l…
17.02b/ And Rabbi Dr. Lord Jonathan Sacks z'l!

It's a great day for America and democracy but we need to share it with the great sorrow of the deaths of two giants of Torah.…

16.01/ There are some really promising signs. It's a good feeling that increasing the number of voters - without even knowing how they voted - is good for the Democrats. It's good for democracy and the "Democrat" party. Funny that
16.02/ A reminder that huge crowds - and 40% of the vote - is also what Hoover inspired in 1932.
16.03/ Florida is a true toss-up because it's Florida and it's designed to be a god-awful mess. But I have a good feeling about Texas (and Georgia). A gooooooooooooood feeling about Texas

#Immigration is not a debate topic.

But immigrants are central to any conversation about Fighting COVID-19, American Families, Race in America, Climate Change, National Security, or Leadership.

@kwelkernbc may not ask, but no answer‘s complete without raising it. #Debates2020
On #COVID19, millions of immigrants are working alongside Americans as essential workers to fight the pandemic.

3-in-4 undocumented workers are in jobs defined as essential by DHS itself. #ImmigrantsAreEssential
But despite the great personal sacrifices they have made, undocumented immigrants and their families--including US citizens--have been largely left out of the relief that Congress has passed to date.

This is what we have long needed.…

Good morning VA! As early voting ramps up around the state, now’s a good time to remind you to Vote NO on Amendment 1, which supposedly ensures fair redistricting. I’m not convinced. Here's why:
Background: you probably know that “redistricting” - drawing district lines for state legislature and Congress - is super important is for setting the political course of the next decade. So do politicians, which is why they try to control it
A coalition pushed for fair, non-partisan process by 2019 deadline. (Constitutional amendment in VA needs GA to pass a resolution twice, then approved on voter ballot Q.) They didn't get it! Instead, they put in place a compromise

I’ve never been so scared in my entire life. I woke up with a sense of complete dread. Our world is on fire. The air is filled with hazy smoke. The POTUS wants to be a dictator and is taking away rights and liberties left and right. There are no more checks and balances.
The person in power at the White House has crazy people humming into his ears about bringing upon martial law should he lose the election. White nationalists and racism is the norm with someone at the top making it ok. And prople still want to elect this clown for another term.
I’ve been out of work for six months due to a global pandemic with no end in sight. People are politicizing the wearing of masks and not protecting our fellow humans. Over 180,000 Americans dead. Trump is killing us and nobody cares. There is no more humanity.

The far right is a death cult.

Death cults attract people excited by the idea of bringing death to fruition.

These are the brownshirts who will be the first line if/when Trump decides to ignore election results and suppress popular street uprisings against that coup.
I struggle trying to find a way to say this that will catch, but we have to get this message out beyond the left.

#bluewave liberals fundamentally do not understand right now that the uprisings and Portland were practice rounds for a November rollout of these tactics.
Trump tested the waters on moving feds and soldiers into Democratic majority cities against civilian protest.

Our Democratic mayors LET him.

Dem leaders were like "no, please don't," but their response was completely disconnected from the broader implications.

I've written before on here about the urgency of white supremacy.

Nowhere is it more blatant than in the way establishment Democrats frame elections, honestly.
Trump is absolutely an unprecedented emergency.

Politics, all of politics, is the art of negotiating unprecedented emergency.

Time and time again, we let ourselves get Shock Doctrined into ignoring our values/needs because of the horror of the emergency in front of it.
The fact is, we have always lived in a time of emergency.

For those of us that are white, it was an emergency in the distance, and emergency we could ignore.

Trump has made the emergency much harder to ignore, but it is not new.

It has always been there.

@Cking613 @MiaFarrow @ewarren @maddow The only relevant thing you said is this ^^ "is no way for a feminist to behave". The idea that Elizabeth Warren should subjugate her beliefs, experience, and vision to Bernie's, that she should defer to him, is misogynist to its core.
@Cking613 @MiaFarrow @ewarren @maddow Berners and Bernie are willfully and egotistically blind to the fact that Warren carries the progressive standard with none of the Bernie baggage. If predicts had supported Warren we could have had our vision with a president who could actually accomplish something.
@Cking613 @MiaFarrow @ewarren @maddow Instead, Bernie is determined to be president himself no matter how badly he damages the progressive cause on the way. That is the epitome of personal over professional.

The big #SuperTuesday question for me today: are polls underestimating Bernie support? Much like #BlueWave elections of past few years, Bernie is energizing youths and apolitical types
We saw this in in 2017 election for #VAGovernor - Northam cruised to a 9-point victory even though late polls showed tightened race - I wrote at the time that "no one has any idea who a ‘likely voter’ is in post-Trump America"…
If there's a similar #BernieWave out there that is not reflected in the polls, then Bernie could do better today than expected - maybe winning VA, maybe getting more national dels than expected

Y’all wanna refuse to accept a fascist America? Here’s a thread from our new Statement of Conscience. #TrumpPenceOutNow #OutNow
Silent No More, We Say:
The hour is late. For over three years, the Trump/Pence regime has brought an unrelenting barrage of insult, injury, and atrocity, with catastrophic consequences for all humanity. #TrumpPenceOutNow
There are times in history when a people must reach deep into their collective conscience and act with unprecedented moral courage to stop the crimes of their government.

1/ Destroy Bernie Sanders to save the world - a thread. Obviously, this is going to really piss some of you off, so let me start with the disclaimer: I'm the drum major leading the #VoteBlueNoMatterWho parade.
2/ I will vote for, support, and volunteer for ANYONE who wins the Democratic nomination. ANYONE. That's because for every issue that you or I care about, whether it's climate, guns, healthcare, corruption, war, or ANYTHING, defeating Trump is step 1 in making any progress.
3/ Trump loses & maybe we save the world. Drag it back from the precipice. Trump wins? We're fucked. Progressives, moderates, socialists, conservatives ... fucked.

2020 brings critical Presidential and Senate elections.
It's also our last chance to build progressive power in state legislatures ahead of 2021 #redistricting.

We've identified 10 states with the biggest 2020 opps for our model of progressive change.
We're channeling our energy in 2020 toward progressive candidates in these 10 states.

Each of these fits one of our strategic buckets: Blue Flips, Blue Holds, Blue Inroads.

We've focused on states where the state legislature controls redistricting.
In 2020, we're also focusing on states with important U.S. Senate or congressional races, and swing states with crucial Electoral College votes.

Because investing locally in blue voter outreach also helps the top of the ticket.

How do various folks use the word "disgusting" on Twitter? We looked at a month or so (2019-12-01 - 2020-01-07) of recent tweets containing "disgusting" to find out; here are some observations. #SaturdayMotivation

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote We classified the accounts with recent "disgusting" tweets into #resistance/#BlueWave, #MAGA, and "other" categories based on the hashtags used in their profiles. We excluded accounts with no profile hashtags. 29.5% appear to be political; slightly more are left-wing than right.
@ZellaQuixote Next, we ran sentiment analysis on the tweets containing "disgusting". Unsurprisingly, the scores average highly negative (around -0.5), but the political accounts' "disgusting" tweets consistently score more negative than those from non-political accounts.

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the state
A whole bunch of folks just weren't doing so great;
With no health insurance, and school weeks 4 days
The legislature was unworthy of praise. #moleg
Lawmakers were sleeping all snug in their beds
While visions of #DarkMoney danced in their heads.
The will of the people they chose to ignore;
Democracy seemed just too much of a chore.
To make voting easy, they simply refused
For a map with #fairdistricts, they just had no use.
The roads they were crumbling, the bridges were too;
Where cement was needed, the fix was but glue.
Women and doctors were growing irate;
Their bodies and freedoms now seized by the state.
Our unions and workers faced ruthless attack
Wishing for someone who just had their back.

I am so tired of the far right Corporate "Evangelicals" pretending they're following the bible.
How about following Jesus' teachings:
The Golden Rule
The Beatitudes
Jesus healed the sick, welcomed strangers, & fed the poor.
He wouldn't elect GOP who cage children.
The media seems fascinated by the fact that @JoeBiden carries a rosary in his pocket, that @SpeakerPelosi is a practicing Catholic as well who honestly prays for our country, & @PeteButtigieg talking openly about his faith.
The Dems are actually living the teachings of Jesus.
@JoeBiden @SpeakerPelosi @PeteButtigieg Atheists also live by the Golden rule. They do good for good's sake.
The Christian Left believes that it's more important to LIVE their faith, rather than simply paying lip service to it.
The Dems don't use the bible as a prop to get elected; the Dems simply do the right thing.

We decided to pair the subjective assessment with an attempt at an objective assessment. We began by downloading tweets containing various phrases likely to be associated with violence against one’s fellow citizens.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote After removing some off-topic search terms, we wound up with 483647 tweets containing “my guns”, “our guns”, “take guns”, “civil war”, or “guillotine(s)” from 285593 accounts between 9/15 and 10/24. How are the accounts posting them distributed in terms of political stance?
@ZellaQuixote We classified the 200 most frequently seen hashtags in the profiles of the accounts tweeting possible violent rhetoric into three categories: #maga (red), #resist/#bluewave (blue), and “other” (green.) Overall, they lean strongly right - 52.3% #maga vs 29.9% #resist/#bluewave.
