@UWM This is the pathetic response from University of #Wisconsin, #Milwaukee about senior lecturer retired @usairforce Lt Col Betsy Schoeller's disgusting #Facebook post about Vanessa Guillen's death. #VanessaGuillen #JusticeForVanessaGullien #FireBetsySchoeller @ProtectRDfnders
@UWM #Facebook posts are NOT PRIVATE. In #Ohio, college professors don't get tenure if they talk about "controversial topics" like mental illness concerns or #homeless individuals' #CivilRights on social media. If you don't have a #SocialMedia policy, you should. @ProtectRDfnders
@UWM @ProtectRDfnders: Army soldier Vanessa Guillen's horrific murder been a trigger for countless #veterans suffering from #PTSD from #military sexual #trauma. A reprehensible #Facebook post from fellow veteran Betsy Schoeller has further exacerbated it. #MilitarySexualTrauma

IRA/Pelosi Alleged Connection to USA Riots Uncovered by Sources in Ireland

(4/17/2019) Nancy Pelosi visited IRA stronghold in Derry, Londonderry 18 months ago where Lyra McKee (journalist reporting on violence) was shot & killed during riots the next day.
Notice the similarity in photos above from Derry & Seattle encampment.

Are riots occurring in USA connected with activist groups of IRA?

“The area where Lyra McKee was killed was ‘the Creggan’ in Londonderry, it’s an IRA stronghold and normally a no go area for police”
“The “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (name now changed to #CHOP presumably for 1700s French Revolution locale) is an exact copy of how the IRA terrorists hijacked the 1969 #CivilRights marches back in 1969 using it to recruit...

The chronic dehumanization of black men, women, and children in the United States is anything but new. Society stereotypes black people as dangerous, lazy, and feeble-minded, among other things; and those stereotypes creep into our public policies and institutional practices. 1/6
The government that's supposed to protect and serve black Americans takes our labor and our tax dollars and then treats us like second class citizens. As long as black people have lived in the United States, we have had to fight for every bit of progress that we have achieved—2/6
emancipation from slavery, the right to vote, the right to vote again (because the 15th Amendment of 1870 wasn’t enough to ensure black suffrage…it would take nearly another century to secure that basic right of citizenship), the end of Jim Crow segregation, 3/6

1. I told you this morning that #Trump was looking for an opportunity to clamp down on #CivilRights. I believe we will see a military clampdown in the coming days, it saddens me to say this bc #peaceful protests are fundamental, but protesters should stand down for now.
2. Not only is Trump preparing to deploy the #military, he is forcing local and state police to turn on their citizenry that would tighten already taught local and regional tensions. #GeorgeFloyd washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
3. #GeorgeFloyd's name has broken through centuries of discrimination, but now it risks being the name associated with a draconian #crackdown the likes of which #America has not seen.

@Tatum_Oneal This was the longest setup for a punchline in 🌎 history. We let racism, sexism, and greed dictate everything on the surface and well below it, since the genesis if America. Those.who wrote.our Constitution owned people and denied women equal rights. Even when slavery ended...
1/
@Tatum_Oneal The 13th Amendment was written purposely to keep slavery legal under the guise of criminality. The #SPLC went after the #KKK and the leader at the time told his members to become cops, lawyers, and politicians. Women STILL don't have equal rights under the Constitution.
2/
@Tatum_Oneal The pushback on #CivilRights, #BlackLivesMatter, and the constant dismissal of women's rights is all a shitty joke and we're coming up on the punchline... America fails! Get it! 🤣😂It's a real knee slapper.😒

Why am I worried about 2020? I saw what happened in 2018 in Georgia. And the trick that was rolled out in Georgia in 2018 in being rolled out nationwide in about 20 states. #Election2020
We’re talking about the swing states: Ohio, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona — which should be a blue state given its demographics, but not if you keep wiping out young people and voters of color from the rolls.
And they're not just wiping out a few voters, 14 million voters have been wiped off the voter rolls in the last two years! palastinvestigativefund.org/?StopThePurge2… #VanishingVoters #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #VoterPurge #VotingRights #CivilRights #Election2020 #StopTheSteal

#CAPrimary: One of the disasters this year is caused by the fact that LA and other counties cut polling stations by 90%. #CaliforniaPrimary #CAPrimary2020 #CaliforniaPrimary2020 #BernieSanders #Bernie2020
They were replaced by so-called “voting centers “ which anyone would know were deeply insufficient and unprepared — especially as #Bernie got out the word that you had to bring in your NPP ballot to exchange it for a Crossover Democratic ballot. #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020
There's zero question about who was hurt: Regular Democrats tend to mail in their ballots. But most NPP independent voters, who widely favor #Bernie, could not mail in their ballots because they had to do the exchange. gregpalast.com/how-california… #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020

Remember when #Republicans #seceded from the #Union to defend the @PeculiarInstitution of #Slavery?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans created the #KKK as an armed force of masked #terrorists to #murder newly #freedslaves and government officials that protected them?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans enacted #apartheid in America through so-called #JimCrow laws?

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters from the rolls in #Georgia before the 2018 gubernatorial race against #StaceyAbrams — who was the first African American woman to run for Governor in the U.S. blavity.com/gov-brian-kemp…
But Kemp's racist vote-purging tricks go way beyond Georgia. He worked with #KrisKobach, Trump's Vote-Thief-in-Chief, who used the #InterstateCrosscheck voter purge list generated by Kemp in Georgia to target voters of color in 30 states. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
That's what flipped #Michigan to Trump and helped steal the presidency in 2016. And it'll happen again in 2020, unless we're able to expose and stop the GOP's election-stealing tricks. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

Trump's going to steal the 2020 election. It doesn't matter how good the Dem's campaign is or how much they spend on ads. Clinton outspent Trump by almost a $1 billion in 2016, but Trump is in the White House because we have an apartheid voting system. gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
#Georgia's ground zero for vote theft. You think of it as a Republican state, but it's going to be the first Deep South white minority state. So the Dems can't lose — unless the GOP steals it from them! gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
There aren't enough white people to elect Donald Trump in states like Georgia. That's WHY the Republicans have stepped up their vote thieving games, which could absolutely reelect Trump — no matter the will of the people. thelondoneconomic.com/opinion/donald…

THREAD. So I went to my local NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) group meeting tonight. TWO things annoyed me. (1) We had to pledge allegiance to the medical model, implying participants must denounce any version of a social model or combined social-medical model. /1
(2) Reinforcing (1), the moderators jumped all over me when I mentioned a medication name. Apparently, there is an “unwritten rule” that people are not allowed to talk about any medications that they’re on by name. Only circumlocutions are allowed. /2
What was the reason given for (2)? Supposedly, “they” don’t want people to take questions back to their doctors about their medications or treatments, or heaven forbid to not take a medication. /3

#GOP keeps trotting out their tired talking point about the “do-nothing-Dems” and all we can concentrate on is #Impeachment.

NOT TRUE.

On February 1st, 1960, four college freshmen in Greensboro, North Carolina took a seat at a "whites only” store called, Woolworth. They placed an order of food, but were refused service. They were asked to leave the store, but remained sitting until the store closed for the day.
The four freshmen, who attended North Carolina A&T University, came back the next day with a small crowd of people to join them and sit down at the counter to ask for service. The students claimed they acted on impulse and purely out of hatred of the Jim Crow laws.
The sit-ins quickly spread to other North Carolina A&T students, then across the state, and then across the country. Students from Texas, Tennessee, and many more states began their own sit-in protests.

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf
