Die Reaktion von #Seehofer auf den antisemitischen und rassistischen Anschlag in #Halle zeigt auch die Konzeptlosigkeit einer "Sicherheits- und #Innenpolitik", die primär auf Angst und Aufrüstung setzt. Einige Gedanken zu #fixeditforyouhorst 1/10
Das Grundproblem: "Innere Sicherheit" wird als Frage von ausreichenden Ressourcen, Befugnissen und technischen Fähigkeiten bei Polizei und Geheimdiensten gesehen. Diese Sichtweise ignoriert alle soziologischen und kriminologischen Einflussfaktoren & Erkenntnisse. 2/10
Mit einer derart verkürzten Fragestellung reproduziert "Sicherheitspolitik" die immer gleichen Argumente und Maßnahmen: Aufrüstung, Ausbau von Befugnissen und Ressourcen verknüpft mit einem autoritären Verständnis von Staat und Gesellschaft und dem Abbau von Grundrechten. 3/10

So @sapinker is talking trash about me re: my piece in #Nature150 (nature.com/articles/d4158…). <cracks knuckles>
The scrumptious irony is how well Pinker’s tweet makes the central argument in my @Nature article. Here’s the tweet in question.
1/
I write satire from time to time, and I’d be hard-put to parody Pinker’s language. So let’s break down his own words:
“Unlike past anti-scientism rants in lit/cult/pol mags, this [my piece] is in Nature.”
nature.com/articles/d4158…
2/
My @nature piece is not a rant, @sapinker, either in tone or in argument. It’s an analysis and a plea for more good science and less bad science. (You do believe there’s bad science?)
Now THIS, now, is a rant.

Interview done and dusted. Really interesting topic this morning. I did some digging and found out that reportedly last year there were 18.5m reports of sexual abuse worldwide and 12m can be traced back to Facebook Messenger.
In 2018, Facebook made 16.8 million reports of child sexual exploitation and abuse content to the US National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, which the National Crime Agency estimates have led to more than 2,500 arrests bbc.co.uk/news/technolog…
So the concerns about Facebook's 'the future is private' campaign, using end-to-end encryption would stand in the way of this reporting process significant and potentially remove much of the responsibility from Facebook to report is valid in my opinion...

Oh wow, 10k followers! Thanks all for joining in the nerdy fun exploring the folkloric and esoteric side of Islam and the Middle East

I promise to use my newfound social media powers mostly for good 😉
In light of that, an early #FF on scholars who I highly recommend you follow:

@ProfIRMF brilliant scholar of Islam & South Asia at the cutting edge of religious studies

@TheLadyImam THE feminist scholar of Islam. Her book on the Qur’an is standard in my class & changed my world
one of the coolest scholars, @BucarLiz's book Pious Fashion is a critical and highly timely read

Finding @DrArjana on twitter after using her books in class for so long was an amazing treat! From pilgrimage to superheroes to Muslims in western imagination!

Here's some background info on Brazilian environmental minister @rsallesmma, the man responsible for protecting the largest area of the Amazon rain forest. Thread:
Born into a wealthy family in São Paulo, Salles founded the right-wing "Endireita Brasil" movement. He ran for Congress for the pro-market NOVO party in 2018, on a campaign of using bullets "against the left" and rural activists, as this poster shows. He lost.
Salles had also been accused of fraud during a previous role. The far-right Jair Bolsonaro, one of the most extreme figures in global electoral politics, appointed him Minister of the Environment anyways. When he began, he had never once stepped foot in the Amazon.

Twitter is brilliant.
Facebook & Instagram & YouTube too!

For governments.

Who love that we voluntarily “subscribe” to these platforms...

Carrying around a smartphone? Voluntary! Everywhere. All the time.

That’s f*cking Christmas time for every big brother.
Let’s do away with paper currency. Implant chips into our bodies. Lenses for our eyes. Have totally “clean technology.” Cars big brother can just turn off. Or lock the doors and drive you to jail on autopilot. Sounds wonderful. And ban guns, knives, and paper. No more writing.
And tiny house living/downsizing. No more eating meat. The removal of all statues, monuments, anything from the past that we don’t like/cannot rationalize...the Pyramids, we will probably keep. Maybe the colosseum? Everything else though, we will destroy because it is “right.”

Now that I'm no longer a political prisoner of Twitter's, here's a thread where I catch up on some stuff that I didn't have the freedom to post over the weekend:
The fuck are the odds that parents of the Parkland kids are in #ElPaso the day of a mass shooting AND ANTIFA had planned a 10 day "siege" of the town during the same time?

Hitting about 48H after expiration of Q's #FF warning is convenient AF. Not long till Sommers, Rothschild, Collins or another professional drama queen straight up ties to Q.

Plus, there was someone in QRG last few days attention whoring HARD, threatening to harm innocents.

Those out of the loop. I can't say if any of this is 100% true, use ur head, make ur own decision. @Option_Snipper was allegedly outed as a teacher. Not a pro XX year trader as claimed. He shutdown his service the same day for "health issues". Vanishing w/ allegedly +++250k.
Now we have an account @Option_sizzle which is suspiciously similar to @option_snipper and started a few days after @option_snipper left for "health reasons". Weird that he had to go for health issues but is still posting just as much, if that is him.
For a long time he claimed HUGE GAINS and continually nailed the top and bottom of each trade. I posted a few times that it was literally impossible based on how many contracts he was trading. There wasn't enough volume there. Example below.

1. “In God We Trust” should never have been our national motto and was only able to become so because of an early Cold War consensus around promoting religion in the public square in order to combat “godless Communism.”

2. While many promoters of this idea of a religious America meant for it to be to some degree inclusive--see popular Cold War notions like "Tri-Faith America" (Protestants, Catholics, Jews) and "Judeo-Christian"--it was always exclusive of unbelievers and many others.
3. In addition, the early Cold War moment, partly thanks to the uptick in apocalyptic thinking due to the advent of nuclear weapons, allowed radical right-wing Christians to come back into the mainstream of American life as scholars like Angela Lahr and Jonathan Herzog have shown

ich hab mir heute bissl den awakening europe stream angeschaut und hätt ein paar kommentare (bin evangelikal freikirchlich aufgewachsen):
das ganze ist soweit ich das sehe ein arm von der bethel church aus kalifornien. das ist eine evangelikale organisation aus der charismatischen richtung
also neben so üblichen evangelikalen merkmalen (strenge ausrichtung an der bibel, persönliches bekehrungserlebnis - sonst hölle, starke betonung von missionierung) hat man auch ziemlich viel übernatürliche späße wie krankenheilung und zungengebet

1. For those not aware of the struggles of LGBTQ students for inclusion in evangelical colleges and universities and the pattern of administrative crackdowns, I’ve published several exposés.

Here’s the most comprehensive:

2. Evangelical colleges are as a rule quite authoritarian institutions. Here I argue that if you want to understand how the Christian Right wants to run the country, you should look at how they run their schools:

1. Alright, people of Twitter, I've waited long enough to get back to documenting my recent trip with @QuiverfullTwee1 and @julieingersoll to Answers in Genesis's Creation Museum and Ark Encounter. So return with me, if you will, into the bizarro world of #TheJesusZone.
@QuiverfullTwee1 @julieingersoll 2. Before leaving things off last time, I laid out The Creation Museum's reductive, Christian supremacist approach to history, which it sums up, like a good sermon outline, in "7 C's":

@QuiverfullTwee1 @julieingersoll 3. If you're interested in how these fundagelical roadside attractions with their #ChristianAltFacts embody conservative, mostly white evangelical authoritarian ideology, see also my friend @QuiverfullTwee1's threads (#FF) on their representation of women
