🧵Dear fellow clears, especially fellow WW, I have a few things to say to us. Note these are things I continuously have to remind myself, too. I’m saying it for me as well as you & am going to use myself as the example here:

Hate speech is a way of dominating & monopolizing the conversation:
- It removes the possibility of polite, congenial dialogue.
- No productive discussion can happen until it is removed, b/c one party is only *pretending* to be there for dialog but is only there for broadcasting.
Hate speech is a weapon being used to shut down political discourse -- under the guise of promoting it.

It's a kind of false flag operation -- a strategy of war disguising itself as "legitimate political discourse."
Putin and the American right-wing are using the exact same tactics -- and this is no accident. It's not a coincidence Elonely Muskrat is carrying water for Russian dictators and oligarchs -- the right-wing as an ideological movement is now global.

Election day is fast approaching!

Are you still hoping to make a bigger difference?

Here are the 8 most important things you can do before, during, and after election day!

(Have you ever heard of #7?)

Before we get specific ... In general, work exponentially for biggest impact. Whatever you choose to do, if you bring in more people, your impact will grow. And if you bring in more people who will themselves bring in more people ... now we're talking!

2/9
BEFORE election day:
1) Check your voter registration at vote.gov

2) Vote early. If there are problems, you'll have time to resolve them by election day.

3) Get out the vote! Phone & text bank or write postcards w/ @RovVote

Desperate much?

Barnicle: “While abortion is an issue, it nowhere reaches the level of interest of voters in terms of the cost of gas, food …”

Me: You can’t divorce being forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy from the economic realities of having a child.”

#WhereIsTheLie
Families are worried about the cost of housing while Kemp sits on $400M in funds to stop evictions. We’re the 8th largest state but have the 4th highest eviction rate. 2/
Families are struggling with healthcare costs, but Kemp refuses to expand Medicaid and give health insurance coverage to 500,000 Georgians. 49% are working people.

Another big category? Women forced to carry unwanted pregnancies to term are 60% less likely to work full-time. 3/

I think it's way past time we corrected the record, and stopped legitimizing the dangerous and extreme beliefs of the religious right. They are NOT "pro-life", and I don't know how much more death it will take for the whole country to realize that.

The efforts to protect people and their private data, or even educate the public on how and what kinds of data are collected by smart phones, and who that data is shared with, have been stunningly underwhelming...like a lot of things.

Yes! Thank You, @JeremyTN64 for being the example that proves this point! It’s doable we all see the efforts of Jeremy are proving the points I am making after seeing 4 spots, not just as uncontested Republicans for DA & Judges, with 0 candidates in District 11 all together.
So to recap from yesterday. #GOTV #EarlyVoting is here. Pick your pick for #governor. Rally behind @Campbell4TN, myself, Carson, @AD5NL, @JeremyTN64, as well as our D neighbors as (I), & the only mayor candidate that doesn’t scream self absorbed or here to help Butt.
Speaking of David Carson though, this isn’t a message for David to put out there, but it is a good 1 for @MauryCountyDems to discuss with our fellow #MauryCountians. We have a unique opportunity #HD71 gives us the chance to have 2 #StateReps from Maury County.

#EarlyVoting starts today, & I got to do something surreal, which was see my name on this ballot. Takeaways from my trip to #GOTV.
Butt is even more dishonest than we already thought (trailers included) as the self proclaimed “proven Republican leadership” candidate is an (I)?
Baker is not a serious candidate, he is trying to help Butt by attempting to siphon off from Charlie Norman.
How we fail as a party is by allowing so many offices to go unopposed. We need more people to step up and run for office to bring balance to the ballots.
This starts at the fact there were just no listed candidates for a field w/any distinction. @MauryCountyDems after this election cycle we need to have a serious look at ourselves to figure out a plan to increase our party listings on the ballot for 2024. We’re in all districts

The link from @thedailyherald & conversation in @AD5NL’s 🧵 I understand, but I want to know from @MauryGOP followers on this. Does it bother you that the Mayor made a grandstanding gesture for some bogus fundraising quotes delaying @MauryCoSchools budget for the upcoming year
Just to fundraise off of something he knows can be overturned with a simple majority? Are you okay being used as a prop for his campaign as Andy demonstrates that he doesn’t care about the issues, and Andy refused to give an explanation on the actual issues inside the budget?
Has Andy ever shown that he cares for anything besides Andy? Ask yourself those questions as we enter Early voting.

🧵1/ This #IndependenceDay, let’s talk about how to keep our democracy. This is not hyperbolic—right *NOW* the GOP is enacting an *ongoing* coup 50+ years in the making. #53PickUp #VoteBlue
2/ Odds are you don’t have a strong understanding of US civics because our government didn’t *WANT* you to understand it. The GOP’s most reliable voting block are uneducated whites. They want it easier to dupe voters with diversions & propaganda. 🧵:
3/ It’s also easier to fool people into thinking the Democrats are purposely or incompetently messing things up if your audience doesn’t know how civics works. The GOP & enemy countries have massive & effective propaganda networks to turn public opinion. Image

For the first time in my life I felt unsafe doing #GOTV & got personally targeted & my photo posted on a QAnon type site.

More appalling was how many on #healthcare & #academia, if you are connected on social media like FB, are pro-violence & anti-rule of law & support J6.
If you are a Black, immigrant, LGBTQ, chronic illness, Muslim, etc person, patient, #HCW, teacher, heck yeah, is scary

Thing is those who have been safely tucked in cocoon of suburbia, worried about junior making the cut for the bball team
now feels suddenly scary

Us: not new
We *need* the ppl who typically enjoy more safety to step up. It feels “ick” to report, like you are an informant in Nazi Germany or something, but it is opposite: being “nice” & “not controversial” & “let’s all get along”
➡️empowers bullies

Be a true ally
Not bully ally

1/ "Fear and Loathing in Central Florida" 🧵

I'm pretty fn sick of the corrupt politics in Florida. Casinos, bigotry, Disney, election fraud, Russia, Elon, insurrection...Mormons? That's right, Central Florida has it all.

/1 4/17/22 UPDATE - DOJ IS #DOINGSOMETHING 🧵: Litigator here. I’m a bit mystified by the defeatism and non-stop #DoSomethingGarland which seems to rear its head even when progress is made.
/2 REALITY CHECK: Trump et al. could get thrown in jail tomorrow and it would not change the fact that the GOP is laser-focused on overturning election results by co-opting state officials & passing voter suppression laws.
/3 WE GOTTA #GOTV: We have to put our energy into winning elections and that means all of us. Instead of hand-wringing and despairing, sign up to GOTV and get voters registered - we have primaries going on right now and we need to get Dem voters focused.

This 👇🏽👇🏿👇🏻 This is why #BLM exists & why “implicit bias” is not only real but it kills

Why, when you see it, say something, do something

Those of us with immigrant backgrounds have NO idea what debt we owe these women for risking their lives so some of us can shop at Whole Foods with other suburban moms, then drive a Lexus home to ride on a Peloton, & think only our own hard work created this access to success.
Those of us who are Muslim have a partial experience of what it is like to be made the face of threat and danger and vilified.

…But “the West “still wants to “save” Muslim women… make us a token or mascot of saviorism & evidence of being a shining city on the hill.
In comparison, the black woman doesn’t have that opportunity to be paraded around as the most recent woman “saved” & celebrated - the tropes are universally harmful & exploitative/pejorative vs Black women in society/media + centuries of economic barriers/being exploited.

For #Virginia #ClimateAction, the choice is clear:

VOTE @TerryMcAuliffe

terrymcauliffe.com/issues/clean-e…

The contrast between McAuliffe's respect for science and #Trumpkin @GlennYoungkin's climate denial is stark.
For a perspective, see @VoteClimateUS's scorecard: McAuliffe 68, Youngkin 12.5. (Terry's score is harsh while Glenn's is generous.)

In 2013 Duggan’s experience is less than Adams in 2021. Did this affect the lack of progress by the Duggan administration?
If you review Duggan’s record, as he stated, he failed everywhere. Image
Then the next election
Duggan’s slogan was ‘promises made , promises kept’ which was a lie by his own measure. The same goes for what he has stated for 2021. Image

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

.. QAnon hijacks the architecture of social media..

..By controlling acceptable forms of information, QAnon traps its members in a downward spiral of radicalization.”

“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe
Above is not limited to academic articles

There has been an increase in #antiAsianhate crimes
shootings
#xenophobia
targeting of #GOTV by minorities
including this attempt to intimidate me for my GOTV, by armed right wing

There was the #Nashvillebombing (with QAnon beliefs)

Just stop these tiny violins. As a woman of color who lost my mother to the pandemic, as a licensed physician, and as a public servant, I can say it is EXACTLY women like Dr. Birx who drive out women like me from “her” turf & prematurely end the lives of women like my mother.
You don’t have to buy an assault rifle and show up to shoot someone’s mother to have blood on your hands.
Bureaucrats like Dr. Birx has blood on their hands no different from as if she did this. You can kill, passively, while wrapped in an Hermès scarf.

@JeromeAdamsMD this is an example of bureaucrats & policies causing death

Perhaps before implying seeking accountability for the policy-driven deaths of so many mothers & loved ones

is “anti-feminist”
learn history
bureaucrats kill women & men of color
