1) Dear @Viacom,

I have begun reaching out to national DV groups in an effort to address your filming and hiding Domestic Violence for years; for silencing the victims and rewarding the perpetrators.
2)

Myself and many others are also in the process of creating a mass targeted campaign in which will be contacting all sponsors who are currently supporting your TM franchises.
3)

It's time to stop rewarding the physical and emotional abuse. You are filming in front of children and to the nation something that is not only extremely irresponsible, but illegal.

I was sexually harassed by a colleague at @nestle South Africa where I worked. It went on for months until one day I put on my big girl pants and said
enough is enough. I reported it using the internal channels at work. ALL
THE DIRECTORS heard about my story...

A THREAD!
The employees also knew about it,
others even said that they too were harassed by the same guy but would
not dare report him because he is the Group Employee Relations Manager.
The guy was a known offender, even the guy who watched the company
cameras knew about his abusive ass.
However, He is the go to guy for ALL
CCMA cases for the entire Group therefore was immuned & protected. I
Thobile Shiba - Dlamini soldiered on and reported the guy, despite
advise from my own husband not to go against a corporate giant.

As a person of color in this country, everywhere I go I’m forced to consider if people around me wish me harm, or are okay with my being harmed.

So every time I find out people I know and love are okay with people who are okay with this, it’s a kick in the gut. /1
Complicity with complicity is complicity.

Last year I was profoundly hurt to hear a friend declare their intent to avoid conversing with their relatives about their continued support of an administration which is actively seeking to harm brown people.
It was 9am. I went outside, sat on the ground,
and cried.

I cried because if my friends—who know and love me, who consider me a friend, who say they want good for people of all backgrounds—won’t speak up for me:

Who will?

I REALLY need for MEN to think about this.

Once upon a time, there was a new governor. He appointed co-managing directors of a Tea-Party-sponsored political group @flca4liberty to his education transition team. Appropriate to have multiple voices represented on a committee, yes, but this group wants full control. /1
.@flca4liberty doesn't consult w/ #Florida parents. It decides for us. Its last email blast asks "Is Your School Duping You Into Buying Porn for Your Child?" (@keithflaugh & Pastor Rick, your photo expresses exactly how parents feel when we read a subject heading like this.) /2
The @flca4liberty directors explain why this matters. "... is back in session, & soon the FL Legislature will be back in session, too! So much is at stake...We need to strengthen Florida's statutes to legally protect our children from harmful pornographic materials." Porn? /3

Before I answer this good question, do any of you want to contribute answers for this Anon? Maybe more questions?
Coats is now out and DECLAS has been authorized. Certain documents have been released to the public as well, including IG report on Comey.

The mass shootings have been the subject of every congressional democrat, just as I said Nancy Pelosi was issuing a threat during the break.
Now, #EnoughIsEnough has become a commonly used hashtag among democrats as they push to infringe on our 2A rights. It will end in a tremendous conservative backlash.

And, as has been proven by Bolton resigning, this creates the "clean house" Q referred to.

Nigerians in South Africa, the Nigerian govt don’t give a shit about your lives/destruction of properties cause they are all making money from Dstv, MTN, Shoprite, standard chartered. #Xenophobia has happened too often to be ignored. time to take this war to them. #EnoughIsEnough
We visit DSTV, Shoprite, MTN offices tomorrow & protesting. If they don’t listen, I’ll post a list of Nigerian stakeholders in these companies; their house addresses, children’s house addresses, safe houses etc till they hear us out. Say no to #XenophobicAttacks or go back to SA.
I’ll publish the restaurants they dine, names of govt officials with stakes in these companies, including the last phone conversations they had mocking hardworking Nigerians, saying nothing will happen, business as usually. #XenophobicAttacks must end. I’ll use a fake account.

Today I launch a #TreesForOurHeroes campaign to recognise those brave allies who have stood alongside us to fight back against #antisemitism. People of other faiths - and of none who have been brave enough to publicly say #enoughisenough
The money raised will plant trees for them in the Negev in Israel. These courageous friends are helping to drive antisemitism out of the mainstream. Let us show our gratitude by embedding the memory of this alliance in Israeli soil.
I have opened both gofundme & justgiving pages. I want people to DONATE AND / OR TO NOMINATE. You can nominate someone without donating, you can donate without nominating. We want to plant as many #treesforourheroes as possible. Nominations - Donations - Both sides are important

Thread: The Power and the Pain of Boycotts and Protests

I am confounded as to how in the hell is trump still president. No Fortune 500 company would tolerate his behavior from their CEO.
The reason is not morality, it’s the PURSE STRINGS.
Any corporation with share holders would ask for their CEO’s letter of resignation or simply fire a CEO who was so shrouded in controversies both social and legal. EVEN if the company was performing.
They would not risk the chance of the CEOs antics affecting sales.
Behold Uber. At the height of their growth, their CEO and founder clowned in the back seat of an Uber, it went viral, and people started deleting Uber from their phones.
Eventually the shareholders said #Enough, asked for his resignation and he is gone*

No matter what gun law is passed, it will never be enough for the progressives. Confiscation is theirs only goal. Every new law will be inadequate the day after it passes. Any law stealing your freedom and liberty will merely be a stepping stone to confiscation. #RedFlagLaw
1
After the "Brady Bill" or the "bump-stock ban" any other restrictive law was put in place, did progressives say: "Great, we won, let'sget along now." Absolutely not. A win brings no joy to the mirthless soul of the progressive. They want everything.

Not just your guns, not just your taxes, they want your mind. They want to control your speech to control your beliefs. They want complete control of you.

What happens when inequality meets hate: @Greg_Palast & @Thom_Hartmann discuss the recent spate of mass shootings in America. thomhartmann.com/bigpicture/whe…
#DaytonOhioShooting #ElPasoShooting #GilroyShooting #RacistInChief #EnoughIsEnough
@Thom_Hartmann I actually did a study of this; I compared gun ownership versus killings, nation by nation, and there was no relationship statistically. But there was a relationship between homicides in a nation and the Gini index — that’s what we measure inequality by. gregpalast.com/florida-hondur…
@Thom_Hartmann What all these shooters have in common, they're young white males who are losers who have nothing to lose. gregpalast.com/tee-jay-james-… #DaytonOhioShooting #ElPasoShooting #GilroyShooting #RacistInChief #EnoughIsEnough

#EnoughIsEnough I am so pissed that I have no words, so I am going to reup an old post.

You #MAGA better pray that liberal's never gain control of the WH again because we are going to pay you back so fucking hard for all of this shit. Planned Parenthoods on every damn corner.
We're going to repaint Air Force One pussy hat pink and fly it over your beloved Bible Belt 6 days a week, tossing birth control, condoms and atheist literature from the cockpit. We're going to tax your mega churches so bad Joel Olsteen will need to get a job at Chick Fil A.
Speaking of @ChickfilA , we're buying all those and giving them to any LGBT person your sick cult leaders tortured with conversion therapy. Have fun with the new menu, you bigoted fucks. Try the McPence, a boiled chicken breast you have to eat tin the closet with your mother.

I grew up in a largely white, conservative, pro-gun community.

I’m so tired of hearing them claim they THEY would be the Good Guy With A Gun, and that they could stop a mass shooting.
I’m tired of it because these same people know how quickly semi-automatic weapons work.

I’m tired of it because in their scenario, they’re always behind the gunfire, never in it.
I’m not impressed that police responded in one minute in Ohio. I’m thankful, yes, but why would we celebrate it when in that time, nine people were killed?

Nine. In 60 seconds.

How fast do these Good Guys With Guns think they are?

#GiveUsAVote! The American people deserve to have real representation. In a recent poll 97% favor background checks.

H.R.8 - Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019

It’s time #MoscowMitch acted for the good of the people rather than for the NRA and Putin.
#GunConrolNow
How effective are expanded gun background checks?

Academic research offers that background checks have a potential to reduce crime, but in practice, results are mixed.

It is a first step. Do nothing? Close the private sale loophole next.

#EnoughIsEnough.

Antifa isn't murdering people. MS-13 isn't gunning down hundreds.

The Trump regime set the stage for these #massshootings.

They have vilified their critics while ending programs that track dangerous, fringe groups.

These ARE #TrumpsTerrorists.
First Trump shut down programs to counter violent extremism.

The administration has hobbled the infrastructure designed to prevent atrocities like Pittsburgh and Christchurch. theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
When Fighting Domestic Terrorism, You Get What You Pay For

The Trump administration has gutted the budget for fighting far-right extremists, making it harder to stop attacks like the Pittsburgh massacre. foreignpolicy.com/2018/11/01/whe…

The Silver Bullet: “X will solve less than 100 percent of the problem. So therefore X isn’t worth doing at all, unlike how we handle every other problem in the world.”
The “Well, But”: “Well, but other things cause bad things, too. So, despite the fact that we do act against those other bad things, we can’t act here on this one bad thing.”

“Journalism is not a crime”

So why is @Wikileaks’ Julian Assange jailed in a maximum security prison, in which people such as Abu Qatada have been imprisoned in? 🙃
