“Americans have retained their illusions of freedom.”

Among liberal to progressive folks it’s ofc often those with the most wealth and power, who will be last to feel real consequences from U.S. authoritarianism, who cling most tightly to the illusion.

This is what we’re up against when it comes to trying to get major press outlets like @nytimes and @washingtonpost, to say nothing of cable news, to stop normalizing extremism. And a related barrier is that we’re not used to viewing any large group of Christians critically.
White evangelicals are Trump’s key base. 80% of them 45 and older rate Trump favorably. 60% aged 18-44 do as well, and a good chuck of the other 40% in that age demographic will vote for him in 2020 anyway. Mark my words.

Trump administration leaves menstruating migrant girls ‘bleeding through underwear at detention centres’ independent.co.uk/news/world/ame…
One pad OR tampon per day.
ONE

A tampon should be changed every 4hrs, and every time you pee and/or poop.

You need access to water and soap to wash hands prior to insertion so you don't introduce bacteria inside the vagina, as well as water and soap for hand washing afterwards.
I'm disgusted by this administration. Prisons are horrible places and they're doing worse to these people, these HUMAN BEINGS! Locking them in cages and treating them as subhuman for wanting a better life for their families.

Where are you @VP and @SecondLady ?

1. Okay, I'm finally sitting down to do my own #2018InReview thread. A lot has happened in my life this year. I've made concrete progress as a writer, speaker, activist, and #Exvangelical advocate.. I'm in a transitional space but feeling somewhat more hopeful about the future.
2. I think I'll go essentially chronologically. Back in January, I was teaching what would become my last semester at the University of South Florida in Tampa. I had hoped that maybe another temporary but full-time with benefits position there would come along, but it did not.
3. I was left with the choice of eking out a living as an adjunct instructor with no benefits, or moving back in with my parents in Indiana for a while to try and see if I could keep the momentum up with the popular engagement through writing, podcasts, radio, etc. I'd been doing

Let's start here: Dan Rather does a good job summarizing the Sinclair propaganda facet of Trump's authoritarian regime.
Rump's authoritarian behavior includes subverting democracy, failure to be transparent, failure to be accountable, nepotism, cronyism, and many dimensions of financial corruption.
Trump's authoritarianism includes thwarting the will of congress, obstructing the protection of the environment, and putting property & people & planet at unprecedented risk.

COMEY MEMOS: (THREAD) Working my way through the 15 pages of #ComeyMemos. Here are the most important and/or shocking revelations: 1/
During #Comey's 1/6/17 at Trump Tower, @Comey told Trump that the Russians allegedly had tapes involving Trump & prostitutes at a Moscow hotel in 2013. Could these be the infamous #PeeTapes? #ComeyMemos 2/
Trump also praised #Comey on 1/6/17 for his handling of the #ClintonEmails investigation. @realDonaldTrump lavished praise on @Comey, indicating that Comey had conducted himself "honorably" and had a great reputation. #ComeyMemos 3/

In the America 1930s, a new kind of Christianity was emerging. It was aimed at the wealthy, and was supported by massive companies. The aim was to change Christian meaning.
But it didn't really start to pick up until 'The New Deal ' which was to help to poor.
This new Christianity, you didn't need to read the Bible, but you had attend church.
Now this was only aimed at the rich and middle classes.
The preacher would clearly state, that you having money was a gift from God, and the poor were being punished by God.
Yes, massive chunks from the Bible was ignored, and in fact their Bibles had eradicated Jesus helping the poor.
Being rich and Christian meant you were truly blessed by God. But in reality, it really did create #FakeChristians

1. Many ex-Evangelicals leave when our understanding of Jesus comes to clash w/ right-wing culture wars and our criticism is deflected. BUT
2. It simply isn’t true that “anyone who has actually read the Gospels” will opt for social justice Christianity or bust. Not how this works
3. There was a time when I insisted the “real” Jesus of the gospels was nothing like Evangelicals, who are like the Pharisees he attacked.
