@EricWolfson @Peggynoonannyc 1/ Not sure we are at the final step yet. If we are, it will be just another interesting acceleration of the pattern of the rise and fall of a dictator (in this case wannaBe). Already he is coming apart. Yet, in the very last moments he can and will do amazing damage.
@EricWolfson @Peggynoonannyc 2/ Demonstrating once again, or maybe Over and Over, that Trump cares not a fig for the country, nor those he calls his "supporters". They are props in his self serving movie he is running "Being Donald Trump".
And when they are no longer useful.. watch what happens next.
@EricWolfson @Peggynoonannyc 3/ There is a pattern. I expect it will be played out. Albeit in its own unique way, in this unique era.
What will break the pattern is if we can, as a country, a society and even civilization, weather the storm & finally integrate and resolve the open wounds that have

Where was god in the lynching of #GeorgeFlyod? Moltmann would answer, that Jesus was there suffering with George Flyod, calling out "I can't breathe" and "mom, I"m scared" with him.
Jesus most likely died from asphyxiation, because crucifixion causes the victim to suffocate slowly. And Jesus called out with his last breathe, my god, my god, why have you forsaken me?

Petit message aux #Camerounais vivant au #Cameroun ou de la #Diaspora. Ce message est pour vous.

Je dois avouer que la mort de #GeorgeFlyod m’a fait pleurer. Elle m’a rendu en colère. Je n’ai pas eu les mots, je ne les ai toujours pas mais certains ont su mieux les écrire/dire.
Cela m’a aussi donné envie d’observer mon regard sur les informations au #Cameroun et le cas du journaliste Samuel Wazizi (#JusticeForWazizi).

- Il a été kidnappé parce qu’il faisait son job : journaliste.

- Il a été kidnappé parce qu’il était ANGLOPHONE (et oui et oui)
- Dès lors de son arrestation sa famille, ni ses avocats ont pu le voir.

- 300 jours plus tard après cette arrestation illégale... on apprend, la semaine dernière qu’il est mort (Torturé).

- Et qu’est ce que nos médias disent depuis 2 jours ? Que c’était un terroriste. (WTF ?)

The DOJ\FBI is investigating #GeorgeFlyod’s death in a parallel investigation with the state. They will let the state charges go first.
They are going to work hard to bring good out of bad.
They have evidence that antifa and other extremist groups have been involved in instigating And participating in the violent activity. They are also seeing foreign actors playing both sides exacerbating The violence.

Sometimes, you just need to be updated. Good thing I got @RunMorgans

June 3, 2020 in a long 🧵:

#CoronavirusPandemic (Because👋, still here)
#GeorgeFlyod (Because Trump didn't understand the heartbreak Floyd's death represented)
#USAonFire (Because it is)
"Its crazy. A couple of hours without knowing what's happening and now I'm lost."
"All is fine. Pour yourself a HUGE drink, take some Xanax and watch Trump's campaign video. I could not get through it."

I’m here in @RedwoodCity where most downtown businesses have boarded up their storefronts as hundreds gather at the San Mateo County courthouse square for the #georgefloydprotest. Follow my thread here for live coverage of the protest. Via @mercnews
Speakers are gathered at the top of the steps of a boarded up old San Mateo County courthouse in #redwoodcity. There are hundreds of people gathered attentively listening to speakers straining their voices to speak without speakers. Via @mercnews
Look at this crowd here for the #redwoodcityprotest! No huge police presence yet but there are some stationed next to the courthouse.

Estados Unidos, fundado por blancos protestantes, deja de ser protestante y blanco. La mayoría actual pasa a ser minoría y esta transición, con los miedos y ansiedades comprensibles que produce, @realDonaldTrump en lugar de gestionarla desde el diálogo para beneficio del país 👇
ha decidido gestionarla desde el odio para su propio beneficio. Incendia los ánimos de los blancos supremacistas y alimenta sus miedos de que una mayoría de negros y marrones van a hacerles perder sus “merecidos” privilegios. 👇
Todo ello con la biblia en la mano para asegurarles que Dios se encuentra de su lado. Aunque para hacerse esa foto propagandística y chulesca con iglesia de fondo haya tenido que dispersar con gases y pelotas de goma a cientos de manifestantes pacíficos para abrirse camino. 👇

While everyone is at it, and tweeting #blacklivesmatter, and rightly so. Let me tell you a story that haunts me every single day. This began in the 1920's and tragically ended in 2002, though it continues even to this day. 1/n
My great grand dad retired to Bangalore and as was the custom in those days got a cleaner to cart away night soil at his new home. A young woman, ironically called Lakshmi, who might have been all of 13/14 joined the service, she was still working in our house age 85+ 2/n
I was about 6 or 7 when I recognized her as a person, She would still come around to clean the newer toilets, which curiously had two doors, one from within the house for us and another rarely opened door for "them". I remember her vividly, the most wrinkled, bent person 3/n

People in India wanting to support #BlackLivesMatter, here's a host of ways to fight against the gross injustice against #GeorgeFlyod and many like him, in a meaningful way.
Police Brutality: Fight police brutality, encounter killings and extra judicial killings which is not a problem we need to go overseas to battle. India has an increasingly disturbing history of its own:…
Fight systematic injustices against minorities in our country: Especially while the nation is ripe with the deaths of #MigrantWorkers caused by the state's willful neglect, students booked for peaceful protests, the state sponsored violence against Muslims & as #KashmirBleeds.

¿Anonymous realmente regresó?

Para la razita que no sabe ni que está pasando con esto de Anonymous les haré un mini hilo para que sepan porque todos y todas estamos tan IMPAKTHADOS.
Bueno así en breves palabras Anonymous es una organización internacional ULTRASECRETA de ciberactivistas.

Nadie sabe quien pertenece a ellos ni dónde encontrarlos, no pueden ser rastreados.
Pero..¿por qué son tan importantes?

Porque no solo son ciberactivistas, sino que son HACKTIVISTAS. Es decir que son hackers súper chingones que pueden hackearlo TODO.

Su lema es:

“Somos Anonymous. Somos legión. No perdonamos. No olvidamos. Espéranos”.

Y se lo toman muy serio

There was and there is nothing “peaceful” about oppression.

When the oppressed and the marginalized rise up, “peace” is demanded *of* them in a way it was never demanded *for* them.

There is nothing peaceful about the State’s monopoly over violence which it delegates to police thugs.

There is nothing peaceful about the police killing of #GeorgeFlyod or #BreonnaTaylor or the countless other Black people they have killed.

“Violence begets violence” is always flung at the oppressed when they rise up against those oppressing them.

What do centuries of violence against the oppressed beget?

Fact is, @realdonaldtrump is handling this perfectly - offering federal support to local government, letting them know they have a limited time to get it together and NOT making the enforcement action personal or tyrannical. /1 #GeorgeFlyod
It robs the media of the chance to blame him, it pulls the air out to much of the reactionary hatred of the #antifa and #blm mobs and shines a glaring light on the true instigators of hate. /2 #GeorgeFlyod
Anyone who thinks it would have restored "order" to have the media filled with images of bleeding, beaten rioters being shown overdramatic readings of out of context Trump statements is simply an idiot. /3 #GeorgeFlyod

#GeorgeFlyod un katledilmesinden sonra başlayan protestolardan bir video; dükkanın camlarını kıran bu kişiye dikkat, siyah bir genç ve protestocular müdahale edip kim olduğu sorunca kaçıyor. Video dolaşıma girince bu kişinin Jacob Pederson isimli polis olduğu açığa çıkıyor.
"It has been revealed that Officer Jacob Pederson of the St.Paul Police Department was the culprit responsible for kick-starting the riot in South Minneapolis. He was captured on camera and identified by his Ex-wife" via @GypsyEyedBeauty ImageImageImageImage
Minneapolis'te bir dükkanın camının gösterici kılığına giren Jacob Pederson tarafından kırılmasına ait görüntüler sayesinde, polis eski eşi tarafından teşhis edilmiş. Bu olay oldukça önemli çünkü Trump açıklamasında şöyle diyordu, "Yağma başladığında silahlar ateşlenir."

I find it interesting that there is a lot of "white people" in masks looting and vandalizing properties at #MinneapolisRiot being courageously confronted by black residents. Something tells me they're not there to find #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd. #AgentProvocateur
Too many uncomfortable questions. At the end of the day, it's the residents of #Minneapolis and St. Paul that will suffer.

Full video of "white guy" breaking out the windows at @autozone at start #MinneapolisRiot. "Are you a cop?"
