#UMM: Is now a good time to remind everyone that RON JOHNSON is the CHAIRMAN of the Senate Homeland Security Committee...?

You know, the committee that oversees DHS, the department in charge of SECURING OUR ELECTIONS...
#FLAG: In April, Sen. Ron Johnson was confronted about Russian election interference and DHS's primary role in election security and preventing it.

He claimed he cares about Russian election interference, but quickly downplayed it.

"Let's not blow this thing out of proportion."
#NOTE: As Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Johnson has not held a single hearing dedicated to #ElectionSecurity this year.

Not after the Mueller Report.

Not after DHS leadership was gutted.

Not after reports that it's not a priority.

The #bullshit that @thedemocrats are #dropping like #deuces is truly preposterous.

Last week, following the lamentable hearing that established the apparent mental decline of Robert #Mueller, @chuckschumer tried to set a trap for @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell.
The normal practice of the Senate as to consideration of proposed legislation is for the proposed bill to be read aloud (or reading waived) and then for the bill to be sent for consideration by one or more Senate committees that have jurisdiction over the subject of the bill.
One of the bills that @thedemocrats and the #lapdancemedia have described as having been blocked by McConnell addressed certain requirements for the use and retention of paper ballots and voting records and providing funding for the #ElectionSecurityCommission to make grants.

(THREAD) When my son was in Gr 10 he brough home, To Kill a Mockingbird. I was angry -my child, was reading a text of a past romanticized by some, even tho it was riddled with #racism. I wondered how many texts he would read that looked like him. But he had to read that- why?
I had asked many times for a reading list of books theyd have in their English class. I asked if the texts looked like them, reflected their experiences bc #IdentityMatters. I never could get an answer. Replies included, it was a #Classic but y'all know #Classics aint #Neutral
Of course, the response when we have these convos - "Y'all want to Censor...". Funny how "#freeSpeech" and "#censorship" always come up when issues of #equity are being discussed. That our children shouldn't be exposed to #racism and #trauma they live EVERY. SINGLE. DAY
