"It's not just Julian [Assange] in gaol for all the BS we've just talked about it's also about how we're going to go forward because at the moment we have almost a mirror of what's happening to Julian happening to society."

"We have countries turning their backs on their citizens, for example Julian, but Julian's not alone here. I see Julian as being a benchmark of what might happen and what is actually happening now to all of us."

They are anti-vaxxers . Anti-vaxxers are not harmless; they threaten and engage in violence while promoting lies that endanger lives. Just like white supremacists, which whom they now ally. We must reject both. #StopAntiVaxViolence

Anti-vaxxers brought white supremacists to the CA State Capitol to oppose my vaccination oversight bill #SB276 in 2019. #StopAntiVaxViolence #Ivax2protect #FakeMEsHurtKids @VaccinateCal
Anti-vaxxers mailed bricks to CA legislators and posted violent memes & threats to oppose #SB276 in 2019. #StopAntiVaxViolence #Ivax2protect #FakeMEsHurtKids @VaccinateCal @ImmunizeCa

I have been combing through Parler. I found some footage that might be helpful. I have had difficultly sharing with @FBI @FBIWFO. Here goes (a thread). I deleted my first because it was unorganized. #SeditionHasConsequences #Sedition #WhiteSupremacy #Antisemitism #racism

We witnessed this last year in California when white anti-vaxxers were allowed to repeatedly disrupt hearings and sessions of the California legislature with few consequences. #SB276 #DefendDemocracy Image
No surprise that the same anti-vaxxers standing on the chairs were also in Washington when our Capitol was attacked. #DefendDemocracy

Democrats in 2000: “Bush stole Florida and the election! Keep fighting this in court Gore!”

Democrats in 2016: “Trump colluded with Russia and stole the election! Impeach him!”

Democrats in 2020: “there’s absolutely no evidence of widespread voter fraud.
👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Moral of the story: Democrats have not conceded an election honorably since Bush Sr. They are sore losers, hypocrites, and they don’t stop complaining until they get what they want.👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
President Trump should take Hillary Clinton’s advice and not concede. Keep pushing forward🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #2020PresidentialElection #POTUS #DefendDemocracy #DemocratsAreCorrupt #LatinosForTrump #StopTheCheat @realDonaldTrump

TONIGHT AT 11PM: @NAACP_LDF ’s President and Director-Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill (@Sifill_LDF) will be a guest on The Daily Show with @Trevornoah. Watch live on @ComedyCentral. Image
WATCH: In under one minute, @Sifill_LDF gives a quick history lesson on LDF's founding and deep roots in the civil rights movement.
"...not only is the federal government not a recourse...they actually have a program to roll back civil rights and they also are some of the biggest instigators of a kind of anti-civil rights and...white supremacist ideology..."

AG Barr tried to gaslight America yesterday. His job is to #defenddemocracy, not work to undermine it. Barr is reading from the same voter suppression playbook as @realDonaldTrump. Every word of his statements on #VoteByMail could undermine confidence in the election. (Thread)
Fact: Millions of Americans have voted privately and securely from the safety of their homes for generations. We have been voting by mail as early as the American Revolution. #VoteByMail works for our military men and women and it works for @realDonaldTrump and his family.
Another fact: After a five-year investigation, the DOJ found “scant” evidence of voter fraud. Perhaps AG Barr should check his own agency’s receipts before lying about vote-by-mail and voter fraud.

1) Never in our lifetimes has our democracy been so under threat. We in the European Movement in Scotland are an avowedly pro-EU group, drawing support from across society and all political parties. Image
2) But whatever people's views on the EU, on Scotland's future, or on other issues, we all need to wake up to the steady dismantling of our democracy; to understand that we risk sleepwalking into something which is a democracy in name only.

3) We have developed a political system, however imperfect, in which all sides accepted a common set of principles: that it's wrong to lie; that we should abide by the rules; that our leaders should submit themselves to scrutiny.

This week we join Scotland’s leading pro-European campaign organisation, the European Movement in Scotland, #EMiS to launch a campaign, through its affiliated local groups across the Scotland, to #DefendDemocracy & highlight the sectors of the economy damaged by #Brexit.
In the face of serious threats to our economic & political future, it's time to join forces & shout "enough"! Campaigners will send letters to Scotland’s MPs & MSPs to demand that our elected representatives stand up for democracy & our country's economic interests.
EMiS chair, former MP (Edinburgh North & Leith) @marklazarowicz said: “Whatever people's views on the EU, on Scotland's future, we need to wake up to the steady dismantling of our democracy; to understand we risk sleepwalking into something which is a democracy in name only."

Democracies globally need all manner of reform. It’s not just USA & UK where #DarkMoney & foreign adversaries essentially steal elections. We can’t forget role of #socialmedia & pol parties using data against us. We must #DefendDemocracy in #Canada, Africa, S. America & beyond…
Even further than campaign finance reform & regulating #socialmedia (there’s no reason Zuckerberg, Liberals, CPC & 3rdParty poli arms need to micro-target ads, we had successful #democracy & elections before this divisive capability, IMO more so) — #NATO must expand its purview…
#NATO’s battlefield must incl #cyberwar, #informationwarfare, w/ a mission to #DefendDemocracy!

Surely NATO knows the global alliance can win the fight but lose the war? We’ve already lost parts of #Europe (full or in part) to #Russia & #authoritarianism w/o a shot fired. All…

Dear President Trump,

If you are afraid of a free and fair election and cannot commit to a peaceful transfer of power, the Constitution offers another way out:

Resign.

#DefendDemocracy
This is not partisanship, it’s patriotism. Since our founding, RepresentUs has staunchly supported Americans of every stripe whose love of democracy is stronger than their love of a political party.
We are conservatives and progressives who believe it is the fundamental right of every U.S. citizen to vote. Like every American, we despise corruption and self-dealing.

@InsiderOilers Well Done Insider. I was born into a left leaning family in Saskatchewan and was fortunate to learn the importance of labour unions and by extension NDP. In my late teens I was converted to a full blown right winger because of my dislike - at the time - of gun control 1/x
@InsiderOilers And because I worked for one of the biggest grain farmers in Southern Saskatchewan. I was nearly a true believer. The interest that “saved” me was political geography. The riding I lived in always voted conservative. I was perplexed why the one geographic area 2/x
@InsiderOilers Near Briarcrest College google.ca/search?client=… voted overwhelmingly conservative. Usually 90+%. I took a human geography course circa 1995 and wrote a paper. My hypothesis was that the voters in the area were voting based for a religious reason. 3/x

I just had an amazing talk with a delivery guy who came by my place of employment to pick something up and I need to share. So a bit of background, he's a Poli-Sci graduate and is interested in studying law. I talked to him for about 40 minutes and I took a couple things that
were very promising. He is originally from a town in southern Alberta, and his parents are, or should I say WERE Kenney supporters but are now downright pissed off. He is, of our ilk, a progressive. We were talking about all kinds of political agendas and he agreed that he
sees a huge wave of progressiveness coming. This time with Kenney has been, and is rough, but far brighter times are ahead. He thinks that Keystone is dead, and after hearing his argument it's impossible to disagree. He thinks that along with the economical struggle, as well

🚨Cataclysmic: #China to impose sweeping national security law in #HongKong, bypassing city's legislature. This is the end of ‘one country two systems" and democratic freedoms Hong Kong people were promised they'd retain until 2047. washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pac…
#HongKong pro-democracy activist @joshuawongcf calls on international community to invoke Global Magnitsky Act sanctions on China for imposing new security law that obliterates semi-autonomous status of HK & violates HK ppl's human rights.

#StandWithHongKong #StandUp4HumanRights
@joshuawongcf "This is the end of #HongKong. The end of One Country-Two Systems. Make no mistake about it. Beijing breached its promise to the HK people, enshrined in the Sino-British Joint Declaration… This is it."—pro-democracy lawmaker Dennis Kwok.
