By all means I’m a Black Texas Democrat so I could literally write the book on national D neglect of not only Texas Democrats but Democrats in EVERY “former” Confederacy, current Jim Crow, “red”/purple state. We don’t take our ball and go home, we don’t boo louder than we #VOTE.
No, this is the thing. If a Black woman descendant of Jim Crow survivors who’s well steeped in the community organizing tricks of the trade that have been passed down since slavery to the most reliable Democratic voting bloc in American history isn’t apathetic, why are y’all?
Not only that, but you don’t even have to be Black in the South to understand the 🆘 and call to action b/c @BetoORourke is out here from dusk to dawn trying to save this godforsaken state from the GOP with almost no help from the White voting majority, alt left or the DNC. 🦾🌊

Reminder: the word abortion does not appear in the Bible.
Since we’re on the subject of Republican hypocrisy/misogyny/racism/homophobia/transphobia (and other assorted SCOTUS confirmation bullshit), here’s a throwback to the Keg Stand Kavanaugh tantrums they tolerated without uttering a single objection. 🧾 #KlanBehavior #WeBeenKnew
Black women supporting Kamala Harris’ presidential bid/VP nod, as well as Joe Biden’s early declaration of his commitment to nominating a Black woman to the SCOTUS & a woman as @VP, as well as Jim Clyburn’s 2nd guessed endorsement of Biden above ALL else, tried to tell Y’ALL.

Except for all intents/purposes, VA *was* TX not too long ago. The 2021 Gubernatorial election set back over a decade of hard-won progress by VA Democrats. It can happen in ANY historically or recently “blue” state at the drop of a dime, if enough White voters DEFECT/vote GOP. 🥴 ImageImageImageImage

Is this snark or legit “not all White people” in *my* TL in the year of our Queen Betty White’s 2022?! 🤷🏾‍♀️🧐 #DyingOfWhitenessWithJonAndJane

I can assure you you’re roasting your own self, dear. 🥴 Deplorable and unexamined White privilege are a CHOICE, they go together like PB&J.

On December 16, 2021, Dinï ze’ Woos of Cas Yikh, Gidimt’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en nation confronted one of Coastal Gaslink’s international investors the National Australia Bank (NAB) at their Annual General Meeting. #WetsuwetenStrong

He confronted NAB about their investment in Indigenous Rights. Coastal GasLink has not gained free, prior and informed consent.

Listen to their response.
Banks are not taking responsibility for their involvement in land theft and illegal projects like Coastal GasLink, that continue to enact colonial violence against Indigenous people with no intention of stopping.

That awkward moment when a dyed in the wool @TexasGOP stan finds the *great* common sense the good Lord gave him & uses his syrupy, twangy drawl to speak the unvarnished truth to MAGAts who voted to close their hospitals but don’t know it b/c DT said “HOAX”. #CowsPlowsSows 🤠🔥💣

That’s also what paradoxically makes Texas more of a winnable state with Joe, it really is a very classic LBJ dynamic and displacement happening here. TX is officially NOT defendable by $ or Trump Klan appearances, any of the above sends TX more blue b/c it exacerbates the shame.
Trump and the GOP already maximized the fullest extent of the raw data Klan vote (not to say they don’t still have the Russian hack option) plus the ‘18 midterm and ‘20 polling already show that he’s hugely slipping in the burbs’ as the disaster gets worse every day. Lame Donald.
Not only that, but I don’t care whether you have an R or D after your name, if you fuck up J. R. Ewing’s “AWL” 💵 it really just fucking DOES have to be over for you b/c Texas’ whole economy requires a steady hand (or at least a Bush that loves oil and war) on the tiller. Toast.

Indeed it is. Most of the 🤖 I’ve blocked in this thread are claiming to be “Liz supporters” as if we don’t already know that most of the reliable Liz stans started riding with Biden after the 1st Super Tuesday and aren’t here for bullshit. It’s *very* transparent. 🙄
Seems we’ve officially arrived at the very prescient #EvergreenTweet PJ archive stage of this here thread, y’all... #saddleup #tallboots 🌵💣🔥

Because the MSM knows that much like Hillary and Barack, Kamala has the recipe for sending Trump and the entire @GOP back to the swamp and turning the Dirty “red” South blue for @JoeBiden with #VoteByMail2020. They don’t wanna give us the chance to #VoteBlueToEndThisNightmare 🤡

Are people grasping the sheer level of unrepentant, unapologetic cowardice on display from @GregAbbott_TX and the @TexasGOP right now? 🧐 Their heads are so far up Trump’s ass that they won’t even take the “risk” of demonstrating competent leadership in a global health crisis.
Abbott thinks he’s slick and is using linguistic gymnastics & the patchwork system of local govt/states’ rights to both downplay the threat of Coronavirus for Trump *and* work behind the scenes to handle the problem internally at the same time. 😒 3/19/20: rev.com/blog/transcrip… ImageImageImageImage
These red state Republicans are talking out of both sides of their mouths on #COVID19 b/c keeping the profit margins healthy at their fave businesses and appeasing #TemperTantrumTrump are way higher priorities for them than protecting/saving lives. “Pro-life” is a habitual LIE.

Doesn’t look good for the @TexasGOP out here, I’m in a respectably long line to vote at 2 PM CT in a majority-minority district in Sugar Land. Bless y’all’s hearts. 😘 #SuperTuesday2020
Whew chile I made it out in 50 minutes. Line was just as long when I left as it was when I got there so I feel for the folk who are gonna show up after 5.... 😬
Here’s more background on how the voting process works in states that hold “open” primaries and don’t tie party affiliation to voter registration. texastribune.org/2020/02/28/tex…

I see folk on here who’ve spent this entire primary wringing their hands & asking us to keep explaining why Biden’s retained such a large % of Black support, but have the nerve to be issuing his campaign last rites based on how he fared in a batshit caucus in a 3% Black state. 😒
I know we’re tired and just ready to get it over with, but some of y’all are just making shit up at this point.

In the Democratic primary, “full strength” for the fight for *any candidate* means having an army of Black women behind them. That army will not be formed or in winning formation for *any candidate* without a thorough vetting.
It’s not optional. #ExpectUs
Seriously though, if you’re so sure that a certain candidate is the only logical hope for defeating Trump, how are you also so sure that said candidate’s whole campaign and electability will fall apart under the weight of being vetted by the base of the Democratic Party? 🧐
Notice how they automatically jump to “we’re gonna lose to Trump” when the frontrunners incur scrutiny from the base? Even after 8 years of Obama and a field as large and diverse as we have, they aren’t capable of fathoming any other candidates building a winning coalition. Sad.

At Congressman Steve Womack’s town hall in Rogers, AR tonight he was asked a question about gun violence. He blamed single parents and the room was not having it. @MomsDemand #ExpectUs #ARLeg
THEN he blamed the separation of church and state saying we took God out of schools. No word on if he meant other people’s gods or just his. Again, the crowd was not having it.
Later a woman (my new shero) got up to scold him. 👏👏👏

With all this footage from Trump’s latest Klan rally trickling down my TL it feels like now’s a good time to post my footage from Kamala’s Houston rally. As you’d imagine, the contrast is stark af. This’ll be a thread of course....
The rally was held at Texas Southern University, an HBCU in Houston’s 3rd Ward. We arrived about 15 minutes before start time and the line was not only long but tremendously diverse.
Kamala was introduced by former Texas Senator and current Harris County Commissioner, Rodney Ellis. He touted her position on bail reform, first and foremost.
