Our hearts are broken with more senseless tragedy. Our country has experienced three mass shootings within one week—Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton.

If you would like to support the victims, join me in donating to the victims' funds.

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*

Ok, so there was a shooting in a Baton Rouge WalMart this afternoon.. you just have to read it. It's NOT an active shooter situation-but shots were evidently fired in the Customer Service area. WHY is it necessary to have open carry? #TuesdayThoughts msn.com/en-us/news/us/…
2-"Authorities and paramedics swarmed a Baton Rouge Walmart after reports of a shooting inside the store East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said officers responded to the store in four minutes after reports of an active shooter which later turned out to be inaccurate.
3-"Instead, investigators say two people pulled guns on each other during a fight near the store's customer service desk and one person started shooting. Gautreaux said an innocent bystander who was buying a lunchbox for his son was struck twice.

THREAD : I am SICK OF THE FALSE EQUIVALENCY on gun violence. #enough @NPR. Your coverage today was repugnant. Here’s the letter I sent to your editor:
As an NPR listener, donor, and Texas resident, I am writing regarding your news at the top of the hour at 7 PM this evening. I was appalled to hear your anchor characterize the aftermath of the El Paso and Dayton shootings this weekend by saying that politicians have offered...
condolences but neither side has offered a policy solution.

When I heard that, I actually thought it might be my local Texas frequency, but it was your national coverage. How dare you suggest the Democrats don’t have a bill dying on Mitch McConnell‘s desk to address...

THREAD: Men who sexually harass women on the street, in bars, at schools, or in the workplace are abusers/bullies. They are also cowards, often using the additional economic pressures of the workplace to force women to acquiesce, to tolerate such men’s interpersonal dominance. /1
The #MeToo movement is born out of women’s rage against the continuing culture of unwanted sexual abuse in the workplace and every other place they turn. /2
The challenges of being harassed on the street are potentially even worse in spaces where a woman’s financial security is at risk; where woman being harassed can’t simply flee from a job or opportunity they likely worked hard to access. /3

There was a shooting at my son’s school today. He’s safe, but... I’m sitting in a gym with hundreds of parents waiting to see their kids. This is the third time I’ve had to pick up my boys from school due to a lockdown. #stemshooting
The police are doing an great job of getting our kids to us. They’re bussing the kids over by grade. Started with the kinders, and have since called out 1st and 2nd grade parents. My kid is in 6th. #stemshooting
One of the police put his hand on my shoulder and asked how I was doing and asked about my son. The gym is starting to clear out somewhat as parents are called out to pick up their kids. #stemshooting

Published AUG 2016 after #Bernie flipped and slammed Hillary … @ericgarland THREAD what we (#ProDemocracy) had been watching. America doesn’t just have a problem with #Fascist#Trumpies on Right THEY have problem at other side of political Horseshoe too tinyurl.com/y9yznpqt
2019 Update.. SO America believed about the #Trump #Fascist #RightWingers .. enough to elect a DEM house (finally after 8 yrs) and they have gone to work for #WeThePeople as @RepCummings showed the country yesterday. At their THIRD Hearing. First was Report CHILD MURDER by TRUMP

1. And now I'm going to tell a story. Another false flag. This time is to force @POTUS not to take the US army out of #Syria.
They already have a lot of experience (8 years) to make chemical attacks to accuse the Syrian government.
OH, and they even have a manual.🧐😲🤨
@RandPaul
2. ISIS terrorist? 😲Seriously?🤨 Have they investigated? 🤓And they already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

Preliminary reports say at least six people were killed & 19 injured by the explosion. US official: 4 US army Killed & 3 US army wounded.

3. ISIS took responsability?😲Seriously?🤨Have they investigated?🤓They already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) took responsibility for the attack that reportedly targeted the US-led coalition’s patrol.

The NRA (falsely) vilifies this attempt to make communities safer by cherry picking and rewording this proposal.

Let me break it down for you.

#GunReform #NRABloodMoney #Enough #NRAIsATerroristOrg
The proposal includes a future ban on the sale of assault-style weapons.

These weapons are by no means necessary for self defense. They’re very well suited however for shooting up classrooms full of children.
The proposal also includes a “ban on common firearm accessories”.

Accessories such as bump stocks that alter a firearm to rapid fire has no place whatsoever in the hands of civilians.

I don’t care if it’s super common. There’s no excuse for possessing one. At all.

Well, let’s just see...shall we?
2). A meme was flown across Twitter over the past few months, coming to my attention again yesterday. I saved it so I could do this little investigation!
3.) According to this meme:
A. U.S. Immigration passed laws in accordance with the passing of the McCarran Walters Act of 1952., Revised & Re-Affirmed in 1965.

On January 21, 2017, we organized the largest single-day protest in US history. We came together as women, femmes, and allies to speak out, and we set the stage for the resistance movement that continues today.

YOU did this. YOU made this happen.

📸 @TheAlexArbuckle
On January 28, 2017—just one week after the first Women’s March—we flooded airports nationwide to protest the Muslim Ban.

Women who marched together went to airports together. People who met at women’s marches came together again to say #NoMuslimBan.

On January 31, 2017—just 10 days after the March—we went back to DC to voice our outrage of the nomination of Jeff Sessions. We continued our call to #StopSessions for over one year after that.

1/Last night we and other local leaders of @MomsDemandAction, @WAGV,@Momtivist, @fialosangeles spoke with @KatieHill4CA about her quote in @NYTimes. We wanted to give Katie the opportunity to explain before we made a public statement. #CA25
nytimes.com/2018/11/09/us/…
2/We do appreciate that @KatieHill4CA took the time to listen to our concerns about the consequences of this quote. We'll allow Katie to better explain how this quote came about. #CA25
3/We want be clear that this order of sentences, however they came to print are uninformed and dangerous. We and so many LA-based activists worked tirelessly these past 2 years to get the #NRA out of #CA25 and that includes NRA talking points.

12 more parents have lost their children. Another community is traumatized. I have had #enough

I am DONE with @NRA telling me I can't talk about this. DONE accepting federal limits on #research

And I know you are, too.

This is what you can do:
nyti.ms/2DaBzLG
1. Share your stories. After #Parkland, people across the country told about the horrors they had seen as #Docs4GunSense. Stories matter. This is not a glamorous movie. These injuries are REAL LIFE. This us OUR LANE.

2. Talk about guns. Talk about guns with gun owners and non gun owners. We are on the same side. Create consensus. Want some tips? Listen to me and @ERdisasterdoc - try it out for size.

OMFG AT LEAST 7 DEAD IN PITTSBURGH SYNAGOGUE. This is happening!! My parents survived the Holocaust, and Americans are willfully repeating the hate and demagoguery that led to the worst atrocities in modern history. WAKE TF UP. Trump's far-right extremists are killing our country
Now a Synagogue. What did ppl expect? Demagogue POTUS goes around the country spewing hate every day. Says neo-Nazis are fine people. Attacks Soros, "globalists". Anti-Semitism is NOT BOTH SIDES. Jews must dump Trump & enabling Republican cowards. They are the danger. #Pittsburgh
>>REPUBLICAN leader @kevinomccarthy, California-23, stoking anti-Semitism with a propaganda tweet about Soros, Steyer & Bloomberg? He deleted it after today's horrific shooting at Pittsburgh Synagogue. Guess he knows inciting hate crimes for votes is a bad look. #ENOUGH #VOTEBLUE

Every single time there's a horrifying story about a Border Patrol agent, I feel it: about midline, just below my xiphoid process, I feel a fullness; literal pain.

Always, half of me hopes it's him—the man who raped me. He grew up to be a Marine. A cop. A US Border Patrol agent.
If it's him, the first half thinks, maybe whomever else he's hurt will have justice. Maybe it'll finally end.

It'll never end.

Every time a story like this breaks, the other half of me hopes I was wrong. I'm not.

My story wasn't enough. I came forward too late.

Just me.

One.
When I came forward, I was treated with respect—and belief. Validation.

It still wasn't enough to heal me. And now there's a scar—about midline, just below my xiphoid process.

This Border Patrol agent is not my rapist. He's theirs. They're dead.

How many will it take?

#Enough
