No logical progressive would defend these violent, segregationist, assimilationist policies.

These people aren’t progressives. They aren’t even “leftists.” They’re a virulent strain of people so anti-American that they’ll cheer #GENOCIDE committed by America’s adversary, #China.
… but who are these folks — the “Justice Center — who are de-platforming #Uyghurs who dare mention #China’s mass detentions of some 3 million+ people?

The “Partnership for Civil Justice” is registered at this address. Are these the people sponsoring this event? (2/3)
@ProfZWolfe, @SobelLaw, @HeidiBoghosian, @CarlPCJF, are these “Liberation Fridays” events sponsored by @ThePCJF?

If so, why not reach out to me so we can discuss civil justice & actually liberating those people who are arbitrarily detained in #China’s #ConcentrationCamps???

Fücking Democrats are eating our own just like fücking 2016 and we're gonna get four more years of the worst monster to ever set foot in the white house because WHAT? Someone SAID something another person doesn't like?

JESUS FÜCKING CHRIST, GET OVER YOURSELVES.
I swear to all that's holy, if we end up with another four years of horror bc y'all shred each other to pieces over perceived imperfections and grade school spats, I will fucking LOSE IT.

There are ACTUAL PEOPLES' LIVES AT STAKE HERE.

Real people will REALLY DIE if trump wins.
Not just Kurdish allies, but them, too.

Not just airliner passengers as collateral damage, but them, too.

Not just children in #concentrationcamps, but them, too.

Not just victims of hate crimes, but them, too.

Not just those who lose health insurance, but them, too.

Nobody is talking about #tuberculosis in #EastTurkistan (#Xinjiang).

This issue is central to understanding the full scope of #China’s #HumanRights atrocities.

We urgently need @WHO biosurveillance insight into this problem.

@robertsreport @grosetimothy @adrianzenz @dtbyler
… any #epidemiology expert will tell you that it’s a disastrous, monstrous idea to throw people into #ConcentrationCamps in the world’s #1 #tuberculosis hot zone.

Moreover, many #Uyghurs have a polymorphism that puts them at risk of liver damage from drugs used to treat #TB

Maybe there's a billionaire not running for President who could create some ads showing the devastation Trump is causing. Separate ads could feature:
- A farmer bankrupted by #TrumpTariffs
- A family devastated by #StochasticTerrorism
- A child whose family lost #FoodStamps (1/5)
- A senior whose #SocialSecurity disability benefits have been cut
- A #Kentucky coal miner whose mine shut down
- A parent who lost his job after his company used the #GOPTaxScam to buy back stock
- A #MinimumWage worker falling deeper into debt despite working 2-3 jobs (2/5)
- Residents in one of the communities like Key West, FL being devastated by #ClimateChange
- A family hit with a medical emergency who have to resort to #GoFundMe for to pay bills
- A synagogue targeted by the #AntiSemitism Trump has unleashed (3/5)

(Thread) A Million People Are Jailed at China's Gulags. I Managed to Escape. Here's What Really Goes on Inside.

Twenty prisoners live in one small room. They are handcuffed, their heads shaved, every move is monitored by ceiling cameras.

haaretz.com/world-news/.pr…
A bucket in the corner of the room is their toilet...Torture – metal nails, fingernails pulled out, electric shocks – takes place in the “black room.” Punishment is a constant. The prisoners are forced to take pills and get injections. It’s for disease prevention,
the staff tell them, but in reality they are the human subjects of medical experiments. Many of the inmates suffer from cognitive decline. Some of the men become sterile. Women are routinely raped.

Happy Sunday #resisters! I have been seeing a lot more "stop fighting hate w/ hate" & "be nice to Nazis" (cough-Ellen-cough) type replies/posts lately. Some that go farther even& start disparaging those like ANTIFA as well. There are a few reasons why resisters speaking like this
is anything but helpful. The first reason being the Overton Window. (Click link for short vid and/or article explanation: vox.com/platform/amp/2…) What was once viewed as really extreme (ie. #ConcentrationCamps/#betrayingtheKurds) is now normal. Esp the camps - I haven't heard
2/
a peep about them lately again. Which makes liberal beliefs now SEEM more extreme. (All psychological tricks/manipulation.) When resisters repeat phrases such as "X Dem candidate is so extreme in their views" is also doing nothing more than helping to continually move the Overton

This brave #Uyghur #Muslim girl, still resides in #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan is indicating that four of her relatives are in #China's #ConcentrationCamps. She obviously wants the world to know regardless of what might happen to her, PLEASE SHARE for her sake.

#CloseTheCamps
Clip 2: There are more "witness testimonials" coming right out of #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan. They don’t saying anything but it's written all over their faces, clearly sending a message to the outside world that all is not good.

As a Jew who has been using the term "concentration camps" to describe the US' immigration detention facilities for more than a year, imma go ahead & shut this down real quick. 👇🏻

Hey, @cjvalues, לך תזדיין

sun-sentinel.com/opinion/commen…
The article legit uses GEO Group's talking points almost word 4 word to argue that #NeverAgainAction is anti-semitic. Yes, GEO, the co whose facilities have provided critical support w/out which *rump wouldn't have been able to carry out its heinous atrocities against immigrants.
2 propagate the hate-filled rhetoric & dehumanization that's helped fuel the conditions that HISTORIANS have compared 2 #ConcentrationCamps during the rise of Nazi Germany is 2 spit on the graves of the 6m Jews killed during the Shoah

@cjvalues, לך תזדיין u don't speak 4 Am.✡️

PLEASE SHARE, A MAN’S LIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

‘Ablikim Yusuf’ a #Uyghur from Hotan prefecture of #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan. Currently he is being held by Qatar authorities at Doha airport and he is to be deported to #China where he’ll likely face a severe punishment.
Abulikemu Yusufu, who was deported from Bosnia to China, is now at Doha Hamas International Airport, waiting for the flight to China. His life will be in grave danger if he’s forcedly returned to China. Please help stop his repatriation!
We urge the United Nations, European Union, and other governments, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and other non-government organizations to take urgent action to save ‘Abulikemu YUSUFU’ and save him from deportation to #China.

@USATODAY @jomareewade @ACLU .@ACLU has filed a motion asking Judge Sabraw for clarification on WHEN EXACTLY CBP is allowed to separate children from their parents, cuz right now, they're doing it for crazy stuff.

911 children separated since June 2018.

185 of them under 5yrs old.
aclu.org/press-releases…
@USATODAY @jomareewade @ACLU In this update on the Ms L vs ICE case, the govt is CONTINUING to separate children from their parents for spurious, nonsensical reasons. Decades old DUIs, traffic tickets, misdemeanor shoplifting offenses, minor drug and fraud charges.
@USATODAY @jomareewade @ACLU @ifindkarma @DemocracyStorm @axidentaliberal @B52Malmet @TrinityResists @TrisResists @porpentina2017 @moved2italy @DanaScottlo Of the 185 children under age 5 that were separated from their parents by CBP, 13 were UNDER ONE YEAR OLD.

Infants. Tiny babies.

They were likewise separated for ridiculous reasons that would never be tolerated in American courts, for American children.

@ifindkarma @DemocracyStorm @porpentina2017 @TheSWPrincess @CaptainResists @Norberta36 @Rosa_DeLauro @ProudResister @_si_se_puede @TheLoyalO New information I've gleaned so far from this hearing on ORR comes from Chair of the Subcommittee, @Rosa_DeLauro, who's visited Homestead several times. She says they have only FIVE certified teachers. FOUR physicians. ZERO psychiatrists.

For now 1300--was 2300--children.
@ifindkarma @DemocracyStorm @porpentina2017 @TheSWPrincess @CaptainResists @Norberta36 @Rosa_DeLauro @ProudResister @_si_se_puede @TheLoyalO .@rosadelauro asks the extremely important question: there were children in Homestead for 45, 50, 60 days who had family in the States, but were languishing, and then, suddenly, in a two week period, 1000+ children were released. Why not before?

#ConcentrationCamps + mass deportations aren't new in American history. Yet over the past few weeks, social movements have made it, delivering one of the largest blows against Trumpism since the airport blockades defeated the Muslim Ban. A thread + report. itsgoingdown.org/cracks-in-the-…
In the last few days, #AbolishICE protesters surrounded + shut down the DC based ICE headquarters + BNP Paribas, which owns Bank of the West, became the latest in a growing collection of big banks; Bank of America, SunTrust, JP Morgan Chase + Wells Fargo to divest from ICE.
This follows a public relations disaster of both Trump's most recent racist comments and Pence lying about conditions at an ICE facility. Meanwhile, the Right is doubling down that massive turnout in the streets is all because of "incendiary rhetoric" from Democrats like AOC.

Why at 4:30a am I in a Lyft to BWI airport, fleeing the Baltimore humidity on #July4 for the greater heat of El Paso?

Full statement is attached. Basically, #CitizenPresence is the reason. Making sure moral outrages of the camps are before our consciousness. Follow my day here.
If they make a movie Davening [praying] in Airports I'll be in line. White privilege: no one looks at me. Today is #July4& also #RoshChodesh, the start of a new month.

I say Hallel, the collection of Psalms celebrating special days. "You freed my bonds." "I called from depths."
And a specially long psalm to end the prayers of the day, mentioning the blessing of food. "Bread satisfies people's hearts." Wine, oil and bread. The basics migrants look for. What our cruel government denies them in the camps.

New month, new possibilities for change, Exoduses.

1. If the Fascist Party is using private contractors to run the @realDonaldTrump @SenateGOP #ConcentrationCamps & child abuse centers, I think a class action against the companies providing the services naming all directors managers & employees seeking class action receiverships
2. negligent and intentional tort damages might be just the ticket. Make being connected to @Trump's concentration camps a civilians' guaranteed trip to Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. We need the names of the entities. Then we need plaintiff firms in the states where the companies are
3. operating. Then teams of lawyers can save the kids and destroy these evil monsters preying on poor children's' misery for blood money. The goal is to to destroy every one connected to it. Every banker. Teach these monsters the meaning of "Biblical" and "laid waste."

I sued @UMich to unseal the papers of John Tanton, the racist architect of the modern anti-immigrant movement.

We can't wait until 2035 to understand how our immigration policy is informed by white nationalists.

Today, the Court ruled in our favor:

hmalegal.com/uploads/3/7/9/…
The groups he created are the ones most directly responsible for the humanitarian catastrophe that is our immigration system. Tanton donated his papers to U of M, but sealed half of them until 2035. I sued to unseal them.

hmalegal.com/blawg/tantonfo…
The #TantonPapers shine a light on the conceptual underpinnings of the policies that rip families apart, jail children, and create a permanent underclass. The lower court dismissed my claim, saying the papers were not public records and hence immune from disclosure.

I appealed.

Liberals have taken leave of their senses. You can’t defend stupid. Jews must walk away from the Democrats. #Auschwitz #ConcentrationCamps #AOCdeathCamps
This is all done as scare tactics. News media defending AOC. Shameful! She should be ridiculed and thrown out of Congress.
Angela Rye is completely unhinged. She is always screaming in shrill voice.

In response to @AOC’s #idiotic assertion that #US operated #detention facilities are #concentrationcamps, @Liz_Wheller posted a comment that @PPFA abortion businesses are the #concentration #camps we have to worry about.
@EmmaBella212 took exception to her observation. I replied, observing that #blastocysts, #embryos, and #fetuses are #human #beings.
@EricBrown1982 takes exception to my assertion that #science defines the offspring of #human #parents as #human and/or my assertion that #science confirms that the #blastocyst, the #embryo, and the #fetus are all #living #beings.

I did my dissertation on #ConcentrationCamps, so I have a few thoughts about @AOC's use of the term to describe the build up of camps on the US southern border. For those in a hurry, here's the take-home message: By any reasonable definition, these are concentration camps
Why are they called concentration camps? well, to state the obvious, it's because large numbers of people are "concentrated" in camps. A better question is, why don't we just call them prisons? We don't say "prisons" because prisons are a part of the formal legal system.
Follow me on this: The immigrants detained in concentration camps are intended to be OUTSIDE the formal legal system. Once removed from the #CriminalJusticeSystem the state is largely free to do whatever it wants. As Hannah Arendt might say, "everything is possible."

Do you feel it?

It's everywhere, permeating our consciousness.

We're at a turning point. A crossroads.

➡️ We can keep the status quo, let #ConcentrationCamps multiply on US soil, deaths pile up, we KNOW where it leads.

↩️ Or we change direction, take the less traveled path.
@ifindkarma @jomareewade @B52Malmet @DemocracyStorm @funder @ProudResister @docrocktex26 @AdamParkhomenko @TrinityResists @Amy_Siskind Don't you know
They're talkin' 'bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
And finally the tables are starting to turn

"people in #Germany at the time they were not all evil people; they were a people who believed in the #government, and that was the crucial mistake..the ideology is not the core trigger, is not the reason why people were behind those views; it's the #propaganda. It's not that ..

Below is an interesting #statistics on the number of #Germans killed in #WW2;I do not retweet this to proclaim this as the truth, but rather as a proposal which has to be corroborated or refuted. I don't know who created this statistics, or how.
My translation:

If you, like me, cannot point to a single thing @RepFrenchHill has done for the benefit of his constituents in #AR2 then you owe it to yourself and everyone else in the seven county area to vote for @clarketucker this November. #arpx #Vote #Midterms2018
.@RepFrenchHill has voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He doesn't care whether or not you can afford to see a doctor, or even if your health insurance will cover a visit. He does not care about #Arkansans #AR2 #ByeFrench #VoteThemOut #arpx
.@RepFrenchHill supports @realDonaldTrump #ConcentrationCamps for migrant children, infants, and toddlers. He refuses to speak up about these egregious #HumanRights violations. #Arkansas deserves a better, more humane representative in #AR2 - @clarketucker is that person! #Vote
