Ok I had alot to go in the report to find out what they said and couldnt wait to find out this info so i searched.... literally they said the trump motorcade sat on executive drive for 40 Mins while they were trying to clear his angry desire to go to #CapitolAttack as they
Are citing various concerns about all the weapons etc. So we are actually supposed to believe the pro trump ornato went against his furious demands this time? He did go to the capitol as evidenced in #proudboy Eddie block stream which the @fbi
Subsequently raided his house and confiscated all his livestream equipment I assume to close up this loophole but many people.have copies of this video so we know they are lying. Eddie block sees the motorcade arrive and knows to shut down the stream due to comms that happened

Here's State-by-State postcards of all the House GOP members who voted against certifying the election AFTER the mob attacked the Capitol to try to prevent the certification. And/or voted against investigating the #January6th attempted coup.
I tagged them all.
Retweet your State.
But first here's a postcard of the 8 GOP SENATORS who voted to overturn the Election AFTER the violent assault on the Capitol.

@SenRickScott @RogerMarshallMD @SenJohnKennedy @HawleyMO @SenTuberville @SenHydeSmith @SenTedCruz @SenLummis
ALABAMA @RepJerryCarl @RepBarryMoore @RepMikeRogersAL @robert_aderholt @repmobrooks @USRepGaryPalmer all voted to overturn the 2020 Election and/or against investigating the insurrection. They are not pro-Democracy and should not be in Congress. #SeditionCaucus #SeditiousGOP

Great article by @JaneMayerNYer that pulls together threads based on reporting from @anelsona & others on CNP, ALEC, etc. One thing national reporters still need is #Florida angle, particularly #SarasotaSeditionSquad. How to tell story of Trumpworld w/o Florida? You can't! /1
#Sarasota @HeraldTribune's @ChrisA0213 shows many local connections in his reporting. Cyber Ninjas based in Sarasota, plus Mike Flynn, not to mention Charlie Kirk, Steve Bannon & Florida GOP Chair Joe Gruters, head of RNC's "election integrity" unit /2

See several Twitter threads I've put together below for more information about the #SarasotaSeditionSquad & local connections to the Jan. 6 #CapitolAttack

This is why I am outspoken when #MedEd or #Education faculty and/or administration and/or HR falsely label a POC, BIPOC, WOC.

People end up dead.

Verify identity and do not spread rumors, innuendo, threats. Refer cases to appropriate authorities or #ethics committees.
Am learning about social network analysis.

As an American Muslim I have always been looked at with suspicion or been under surveillance.

Once I looked at how closely connected some faculty or healthcare ppl are to QAnon posts (or believe it selves) 😱…
During the Trump administration, well before the #CapitolAttack, many minorities were experiencing increasing workplace #harassment & #bullying, especially for simply speaking (up). Just seeking accurate data for patients can = “threat” #MedTwitter…

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

.. QAnon hijacks the architecture of social media..

..By controlling acceptable forms of information, QAnon traps its members in a downward spiral of radicalization.”…
“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe
Above is not limited to academic articles

There has been an increase in #antiAsianhate crimes
targeting of #GOTV by minorities
including this attempt to intimidate me for my GOTV, by armed right wing

There was the #Nashvillebombing (with QAnon beliefs)

Unity is first & foremost responsibility

Have you EVER seen a responsible #racist?

Americans view the unfolding events as internal affairs

They forgot - the US gov aggressively promoted globalization & insisted on being the leader of the "free world"


The world agreed & was rewarded with a shock

B4 #Trump, many "flaws" of the system were not obvious

#TraitorTrump exposed them all

- the system of C&B is dangerously unreliable
- human life is worthless
- unprecedented #corruption
- #DoubleStandards

#NoJusticeNoPeace ➡️

#Biden should've restored #RuleOfLaw b4 talking about unity - he put the cart b4 the horse

#JoeBiden's unity
- turned #racism into a political stance
- let #GOPTraitors off the hook
- reduced #RuleOfLaw to nothing
- "inspired" #CorruptGOP & it's base

When it comes to #AntiAsianHate crimes, we need to be able to call it a "hate crime" when the assailant is not black as well.

"Sex addiction" ...but only towards Asian women? That sounds like race-based behavior or racial assumptions.…
Stop, just stop this "but what about black crime" question

or "not to trigger but...." intrusive questions from the melanin & ovary deficient folks seeking to pit minority vs minority

or sudden concern towards #AAPI #aapihate from those who usually talk of "reverse racism"
There is a stiking difference, anecdotally

to when it is quickly identified as a hate crime
versus "but is it really a hate crime?"
that seems to be related to amount of melanin of the attacker…

„Law and Order“ when white people cause the threat.

You are aware of the fact that Mitch McConnell reacted the way he did 2 weeks ago (!) only because he wanted to play down the risk of domestic terror by white supremacists?

But sure. Tell me more about me being the racist.

1. The framers made a special rule for a traitors' children and grandchildren. Insurrection, that turns to violence like the #CapitolAttack was charged as treason during and after the Civil War. Why did framers make it constitutional to punish a traitor's descendants?
2. Here it is:
"The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted." III, 2, 2.
3. Have you folks discussed your decision with your children? Their children? Their children's' children? @HawleyMO @tedcruz @SenHydeSmith @ScottforFlorida @CynthiaMLummis @RogerMarshallMD @TTuberville @mobrooks @laurenboebert @mtgreenee @replouiegohmert

How about your staff?

THREAD: Here’s the story of @homegrownterrorists on Instagram.

If anyone has a direct email to someone at @Instagram who can help get our account back, please DM.

This begins on Monday, 48 hours before the #CapitolAttack. I was reading about the #StopTheSteal rally and realized it was on the same day as certification. I told a colleague I was concerned there would be a takeover the Capitol Building to block the vote.

What would come was not a surprise.

On Wednesday, that colleague sent me a Slack message: “Not to freak you out, but…”
