Important THREAD on UK’s Black woman MP @HackneyAbbott’s letter to @theobserver/@guardian and White Britain unleashing opportunistic attacks on the MP.
Buckle up🧵

White British establishment has been way too racist and harsh towards #DianeAbbott (“DA”) among #BlackWomen—not denying many of their points—compared to others. Issues of DA erasing #GTR or #Holocaust memories or not—not denying the importance of it—is a separate issue than… 2/ Tweet from Siobhan Miller (...
…the main topic pointed out in the subject of the letter: White #HierarchyOfRacism that exists to date. Having worked as a London-based banker who was involved with diversity, I’ve seen Black was 9x more, Muslims up to 8x more discriminated at institutional & security levels…3/

1. The excellent report by Henry Jackson Society exposing anti-Hindu bullying in schools and #Hinduphobia has been released. But this Hinduphobia has been fostered by intellectuals and media who feed the very narrative which had led to the current situation found in schools.
2. For decades @guardian @Independent @BBC and others have been spewing Hinduphobia unchallenged. If you complain they ignore it. If you turn up they still ignore it. The Independent claim Hindu chant of "Jai Shri Ram" is a battle cry of hate. This is just one of many.
3. When you contact the Independent or any media giant they claim to be experts of Hindu issues. In reality they are just pushing neo-racism and neo-colonialism so revered by left-wing white elite who hate Hindus. They suffer from the #Churchill syndrome.

#Thread | A recent thread attempting to exonerate #Churchill of war crimes in India and Bengal has caused a stir.

It seems to skirt the blame on Japan or enemies of the empire and even attempts to make absurd & sensationalist remarks to gain traction.

While reading the thread, it was tough to find responsible quotes that could counter the widely held opinion that it was Churchill, his policies, and his 'hate' for India that led to millions dying in Bengal in the 1940s.

It's easy to take the "As someone who has read through thousands of pages of primary sources" route, but a better alternative would be to first critique Churchill's Secret War and spend time and effort in doing that.

En 1940, #Churchill avait dit : « jamais nous ne céderons. […] Ayez donc espoir et confiance ». Aujourd’hui, nous « célébrons » tragiquement 366 jours d’horreurs, de martyrs, de tragédies, de crimes et de souffrances psychologiques et physiques.
La guerre en #Ukraine est la preuve concrète que les régimes autoritaires, tel que le régime de #Poutine, ont peur de la démocratie. En ces 1 an de guerre, 1 an d’horreur, ayons une pensée solidaire au peuple #ukrainien et à son armée vaillante et désireuse de victoire.
Nous nous devons de ne pas oublier, de ne pas songer à aider ou soutenir #Poutine mais à lutter contre ce dernier. Nous le devons pour tous les disparus de cette atroce guerre. Le devoir de mémoire est primordial. En deux mots : #SlavaUkraini 🇺🇦 ! (Gloire à l’#Ukraine !).

@humourbiglol @LesComplot Pas a Churchill.
Le Churchill défiant les allemands, allant debout ecouter le Peuple Londonien dans le métro… est un mythe!
Churchill haïssait la "sale populace", était agoraphobe, misanthrope et à vécu l'intégralité de la guerre dans son "bunker"!

@humourbiglol @LesComplot Churchill avait trahi Belgique, France en ne faisant rien!
Les British poussaient d'ailleurs déjà à la guerre en 1938... en envoyant les autres se battent pour eux...
@humourbiglol @LesComplot Churchill avait trahi la France et Toute l'Europe occidentale alors qu'il était le garant sur les Mers (Nord et Manche) et du Ciel...
Toujours là à minimiser le comportement arrogants (ce sont eux les arrogants!) et egoistes des British en parlant de "flegme".

Winston #Churchill 1940

we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;

This is your world
These are your people
You can live for yourself today
Or help build tomorrow
for everyone

Das ist deine Welt
Das sind deine Mitmenschen
Du kannst heute für dich leben
Oder für alle die Zukunft von morgen aufbauen

Keine Sterne in Athen und keine #Leopard2 in #Ukraine


"Deutsche Waffen und Deutsches Geld morden in aller Welt"

haben Chefs von Deutschland entschieden

"die andere Wange oder Ohr auch noch hinhalten"
in "Jesus von Nazareth", "Ben Hur" und "Live of Brian M. #Python"
also im Kino fand ich "The Last Temptation of Christ" schon deutlicher angenehmer zu gucken als dieser blurünstige Prachtschinken von Mel Gibson "The Passion of Christ"
aber was ich schon?

Wenn ich wüsste,
dass ich nichts weiss,
dann wüsste ich weit mehr,
als all das, wass ich weiß.

Bo, n Date mit Simone de Beauvoir im Jahr 1968 im Straßen-Cafe auf MontMartre würd jetzt echt gut tun.

Since the beginning of Russia's invasion of #Ukraine, President Zelensky has harnessed the full range of national resources to defend his country. A thread on the #leadership & speeches of @ZelenskyyUa. 1/25 🧵…
2/ Whether it is the mobilisation of Ukrainian people for military or civil defense purposes, to conduct cyber operations, engage in the global influence campaign or to simply keep their nation running, Zelensky has been the leader that Ukrainians look to.
3/ Of all the resources that Zelensky has appropriated to halt and throw back this vicious assault on #Ukraine, perhaps one of the most powerful has been his use of the written and spoken word.

@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 1. #Partition1947 counterfactuals aren't counterintuitive. #Partition ended a zero sum game among the same stale set of interlocutors conducting a dialogue of the deaf #Simla, June '45 onwards. #CabinetMissionPlan's devolution did NOT solve #India's impasse.
@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 2. #Jinnah accepted the #CabinetMissionPlan for an embryonic #Pakistan was assured, and permitted to secede, come 1957, if the #confederation was not to the #MuslimLeague's liking. Routinely overlooked by #Nehru's #Indian and #Pakistani baiters.
@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 3. To iterate: #CabinetMissionPlan was a pilot project to be reviewed decadally. Just how was #India and #Nehru to embark on #economic #planning and consolidate a #democratic #union of disparate elements riven by #regionalism, #casteism and #sectarianism?

Given Putin’s complete and soulless evil, I was compelled to peruse Churchill’s 1st volume of 5 books on WWII. In Churchillian elegance he says: “It’s my purpose, as one who lived and acted in these days, first to show how easily the tragedy of the Second World War could have 1/6
been prevented; how the malice of the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous; how the structure and habits of democratic states, unless they are welded into larger organisms, lack those elements of persistence and conviction which can alone give security 2/6
to humble masses; how, even in matters of self-preservation, no policy is pursued for even 10 or 15 years at a time. We shall see how the counsels of prudence and restraint may become the prime agents of mortal danger; how the middle course adopted from desires for safety 3/6

🔴 Hoy 50.000 millones de dólares más de parte de la administración #Biden a #Zelenski + alrededor de 50 aviones con material bélico (con 80 mil Kg en promedio C/U) + ayuda anterior, y de otros países de la #OTAN, claramente el invasor #Putin está perdiendo la guerra en #Ucrania
👉incluida la invasora #Rusia🇷🇺

Pasarán generaciones de ucranianos hasta que logren su independencia plena y por ende, su soberanía.

Solo perdió el pueblo de #Ucrania🇺🇦

Pierde #Zelenski? Image
Lo sabremos cuando decidan terminar la ocupación de la República soberana de #Ucrania🇺🇦

No me apresuraría a asegurar hoy que “el nuevo héroe” #Zelensky -al que llamaron escandalosamente #Churchill - está ajeno.

Nadie que negocie con el “Grupo #Biden” me da 100% de confianza.

En 1982 los #EEUU🇺🇸 instó a #Galtieri a recuperarlas Islas #Malvinas
En 2022 la administración #Biden animó al presidente #Zelensky a desafiar a #RUSIA🇷🇺 y hoy también abandonaron!
En el año 1982, como hoy, el Mundo 🌎 también estaba dividido en dos bloques. Pero cuando a la #Argentina🇦🇷 “le soltó las manos la #OTAN” quien cumplió su no intervención en el OTRO BLOQUE fue #RUSIA🇷🇺 (ex #URSS)
Hoy tiene mucha mejor suerte #Ucrania🇺🇦 porque al menos los apoyan.
No pienso entablar una discusión de que #Galtieri era un miembro del Proceso de Reorganización Nacional, gracias al cual HOY MUCHOS POLÍTICOS GOZAN DE SUS SALARIOS, lo que no sucedería si ganaba EL PLAN DEL #CUBA🇨🇺
Viviríamos en una dictadura. Hubo excesos?. Si.
El tema es otro!

Per la rubrica

ecco il prode cavaliere senza macchia e senza paura, che si getta nella pugna contro l'ostile fato.

Lui non teme il licenziamento, né di perdere il lavoro, né di vedersi portar via la casa dalle banche, ma
nemmeno di perdere l'affetto di moglie/marito e/o la custodia dei figli.

Perché a lui nulla lo scalfisce.

A che vi serve un lavoro salariato?
Non penserete a un divorzio come a un evento fallimentare della vostra vita?

Non si perita costui, non si perita, che la gente

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

Thread of the @RealTimers panel w/ @billmaher @larrywilmore @HBO 3/12/2021

1/ Capitalism is the best system of its kind. We need to bail out people, not companies
2/ We need to break up big tech

The top 10%, not to mention the top 1%, are living their best lives

5 companies (Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook & Microsoft) make up 21% of the S&P500 (24% in Jan 2021)

(my stat about 7 companies = 51% is incorrect, misread a chart)
3/ We've created an industrial shaming culture where you get points for being offended. Universities should be graduating not wokesters but warriors.

@NYUStern colleague @jonhaidt cites a core principle of rhetoric: interpret an argument as charitably as possible

Hey #twitterstorians! Since gaining my PhD in @warstudies I’m preparing a monograph on my research. Here’s a thread outlining my doctoral work.

My PhD examined the role of secret intelligence and clandestine diplomacy in Anglo-French relations during the Second World War. /1
Going into @KCLSecurity I was ready. I had great supervision and training. I’d learned how to analyse intelligence material. My research on Intel and Anthony Eden's resignation over Italian Appeasement is based on that work and found in @IntelNatSecJnl:…
This work would be bigger. Much bigger. Here was the question:

By the end of #WWII, the world had changed. British and French grand strategy had the same goal: How to maintain your great power status. The exhausted empires faced rising #superpowers. /3

Hey #Manitoba I have some news about shipping #OilByRail through #Churchill.
@Arctic_Gateway bought the rail line which the #Omnitrax hucksters rode into the ground. Omnitrax, helmed by #CPC MP Merv Tweed, tried to ram oil shipments through Churchill in 2013.
Scientists around the world raised their voice and said it's a terrible idea. First Nations living on the rail line said no damn way. @wildernews and yours truly spent a year explaining that this was stupid and dangerous.
In 2014 when Omnitrax dumped another train...
...into the Saskatchewan River Delta, the largest freshwater delta in North America, they gave up their idea. The train they dumped into the wetland was luckily only carrying wheat so there was less environmental impact than if it would have been oil. It was 1 of many crashes.
