Jesus wept.
He's been 'ordained' into something called the 'Free Church of England'. There's very little information about it, but this came up. 😬
So, following a little bit of digging, I've found something interesting & revealing.

The 'Free Church of England' came to the public's attention in 2010 with the case of Shirley Chaplin - a Christian nurse who was moved to a desk job after refusing to remove her crucifix.

Dear Fellow Americans,

Do you vote? 🤔 OK!

THIS is why the #January6thCommitteeHearings are so important.
A 🧵entitled...
"Why we should all watch the #January6thHearings" or "The #BigLie = The Big Stupid!"

Warning: There may be some language here. I've had enough!

1)
In the current political climate, MAGA Republicans, most of whom were complicit in the conspiracy to overturn the results of a free and fair election, continue to distract, obfuscate or remain silent while the #January6thCommittee patiently unravels..

2)
nytimes.com/interactive/20…
..the entire story for the American public. It is a story that must be told and must be fully understood, in all of it's implications.

Because the current #January6thCommitteeHearings are NOT just about the events of a single day NOR are they only about a vendetta...

Given the non-dom billionaire-owned Daily Mail's support for the neofascist #Rwanda plan, here's a thread about Left-hating Harold Harmsworth - 1st Lord Rothermere, owner of the Mail - specifically his vocal support for both Hitler, & Mosley's British Union of #Fascists.
Devised in 1896 by Alfred Harmsworth (Viscount Northcliffe) & his brother Harold (Lord Rothermere), the Mail has campaigned against Unions & the Left, & against all women & most working-class men being given the vote.

By 1930, they owned 14 national daily & Sunday newspapers.
Harold Harmsworth (Lord Rothermere) was a great supporter of Adolf Hitler.

According to James Pool, author of 'Who Financed Hitler': "Shortly after the Nazis' sweeping victory in the election of September 14, 1930, Rothermere went to Munich to have a long talk with Hitler."

There's much about #fascism that is largely hidden from us in Britain.

#Fascist ideas prospered politically only when perceived economic threats increased their appeal to members of certain social groups.

#CostOfLivingCrisis

britannica.com/topic/fascism/…
In 1928, before the onset of the Great Depression in Germany, Hitler received less than 3 percent of the vote; after 1930, however, far more voters—many of them middle and lower-middle class individuals fearful of “proletarianization”—gave him their support.
The economic anxiety underlying the success of Nazism was reflected to some extent in party membership, which was drawn disproportionately from economic elites and other high-status groups—especially for leadership positions.

Insight into #Russian #fascism (really just #narcissism/#NPD on a grand scale). English translation a pro #Russia blogger- usual dehumanization of #Ukrainians ("evil, not to be thought of as humans"). Notably, this monster lives in #Europe teaching #Russians how to hate & kill us ImageImageImageImage
Ofc it's characteristic of these propagandists - they preach #Russia, "#Russian world" its #fascism, oppose #Europe's values, teach #Russians of horrors of democracy, yet prefer to abuse the same #Europe's values.
How exactly some of the Western #Europe (well, not geographically, #Germany also is included) can allow itself to patronize &"teach" Eastern Europe on problems of #Russian aggression at their borders, when they do business with Russia and have no issue enabling such propaganda

#fascists not only exists in #Ukraine, but also on the Russian side!
1/
#Ukrainian #fascists against #Russian Fascists. The on in this picture is from #русич, a Russian analogy of #Azov
2/
Russia is not free from fascist tendencies, the #UkraineRussianWar + worldwide canceling of Russian culture led to a massive rise in patriotism within Russian civil society. Like the right tried to ride the wave of #COVID19 related protests, the Russian right now tries to ride

"The erosion of meaningful culture, the domination of corporate & state media [] the loss of a knowledgable audience. And as one sees w/ the Russophobic response to Ukraine, the entire pandemic only served as a precursor to some complete mental collapse."

"And perhaps the best place (or one of them) to start is with ideas of #autonomy, #AI, and #tech (#media). For #automation and the internet have both, in their own ways, contributed hugely to the layers of mystification surrounding everything in the #capitalist west today."
"#AI seeks to achieve the same control over mental processes that #scientific management sought to achieve over physical #labour [in 2nd industrial revolution] through a process of rationalization, fragmentation, mechanization and routinization."

When dealing with #fascists, stop falling into the trap set by the "Wedge strategy".

The Wedge strategy is a White Evangelical Christian tactic developed by the ppl who came up with the infantile theory of "intelligent design".

The purpose is simple: CREATE CONTROVERSY!
The Wedge Strategy at its core admits that White Evangelical Evidence just cannot stand to scientific scrutiny.

Mainly, the Protestant Bible simply does not answer everything and in fact creates multiple contradictions that are best understood personally and NOT in general.
The Wedge strategy admit that in debate, White Evangelical Christians just do NOT have the critical ammo.

It's like showing up with a book to a gunfight. Like that's literally all they ever did and it fails. You cannot "BUT THE BIBLE" your way out of everything. Of anything.

1. We all must stop using the term “conservative” as the catch-all that includes radically regressive, white supremacist, hyper-nationalist, racist seditionists and insurrectionists. In a word: they are #FASCISTS, and as such represent clear and present danger.
2. Sedition started with the ratcheting up of the radicalization of American white right-wingers white “evangelicals.” The concurrent normalization of white supremacy, carefully/consistently presented by propaganda-feeds (Fox/OANN/Breitbart etc) helped it spread like a pandemic.
3. Insurrection was a natural result of this process. Those behind the rise of American #fascism knew exactly what they were doing. They followed a recipe—they got the expected result.

@_SecondThought One thing that really shocks me about the rise of #Facism in the #USA is the fact that there seem to be almost no resources devoted to #deradicalization.

@_SecondThought the #US doesn't have publicly funded programs like @exitdeutschland, and the few ones existing [@handsofeir and @tmgarret's approach] are even more underfunded...

So there's very low options and incentives for #fascists & #racists to quit.
@_SecondThought and since denying crimes against humainty [i.e. the Holocaust] is deemed 'just an opinion' in the U.S. and does not result in racists and facists getting fired or banned from businesses' premises, this does only worsen.

@MarshaBlackburn Marsha is lying. She’s a #KochNetwork #DarkMoney member and rewriting the Constitution is their primary goal. They’re closer to it than most people are aware of...
* See next tweet for the details. truthout.org/articles/misin…
@MarshaBlackburn 🚨 Important warning from Nancy MacLean, author of “Democracy In Chains”. She’s speaking to impeachment, but her words apply to the bigger picture.
Check your State... be vigilant & take no Twitter or press opinions as fact. This is too important.
@MarshaBlackburn This meeting happened in July 2020! #KochNetwork member,
Scott Walker, “other budget hawks hatch plan to force constitutional convention”
They’re taking full advantage of trump’s ability to distract and the #COVID19 crisis

Thread highlighting major trends that lead to Riots in Delhi

1/ Those who read history know- every time US @POTUS visited violence erupted in Kashmir. Why? Global media focus, Democrats affinity to Islam. It's a necessary ritual to keep Kashmir issue relevant

#DelhiRiotTruth
@POTUS 2/ It's a modus operandi across all Islamic fringe groups aided by money from Saudi Arabia & space by Leftist media. 90s same thing repeated in Gaza strip, in Chechnya. Suits US agenda too as helps propagate US system to more countries. Same in Afghan in 80s when Russia present
@POTUS 3/ Modi normalised Kashmir. They brought the fight to Delhi.
Pakistan's state & intelligence runs on the fuel called Kashmir's independence. Kashmir with its Muslim population integrated with India will be an existential crisis for ISI.
They had to respond.

Many of us have known this for a while now but it's quickly becoming apparent that, especially after the recent #GeneralElectionResults2019, #Racism in the UK is, not only going to increase, but become even more brutal, widespread & acceptable, as #racists become emboldened by /1
