Until everyone in Britain knows that demonising & scapegoating asylum seekers, migrants, & minorities is a manipulative yet effective political strategy, successfully mobilised by tyrants within democracies, we will be stuck in an endless cycle of division & dysfunction.
To spell out how explicit #racism is a constant & central feature of every successful @Conservatives' electoral strategy over the last 45 years, I once again quote directly from the essential & insightful @johnsimkin.

Everyone must learn this lesson. 🇬🇧…
Unemployment remained low in the years following WWII. In 1974 unemployment was only 2.6%.

In a TV interview in January, 1978, Margaret Thatcher played the race-card: "Some people have felt swamped by immigrants. They've seen the whole character of their neighbourhoods change."

CROSS-BORDER TERRORIST ATTACKS UNDERMINE DECISION TO CEDE SINAI PENINSULA // Since 2011, repeated cross-border terrorist attacks have made the Sinai Peninsula Israel's deadliest international border. Image
Over the weekend, an Egyptian police officer armed with a gun, six magazines of ammunition, and a Quran, infiltrated Israeli territory and murdered three Israeli soldiers.
Egypt's government is defending the terrorists' actions and offered "sincere condolences" to his family. Israel sacrificed the Sinai Peninsula, twice its size, for peace with Egypt – ceding strategic depth, natural resources, and control of key trade routes like the Suez Canal.

As #Russia and #China torture their populations, the fire of hearts stoked by the remembrance of history, which they deny and attempt to obfuscate/distort, spreads and engulfs.

The fire hurts, but the hurting is right, it is good.

It is direction; it is to be trodden.
No other direction brings #Humanity further.

The #Holocaust happened; The #Holodomor happened, the #Uyghur genocide is happening, the #Tibetan genocide is happening.

Through painful turmoil, we toil. A great many other foul conflicts rage; their fires of the heart hurt too.
#Palestine and #Israel both claim to want peace, neither can be first to stop the violence, neither wills to turn a cheek or implement full reconciliation where little ever sprouted.

#Iranian women remain targets, victims, punished; men remain slavers, cherished, what is holy?

@BCNagesh_bjp has lost his reelection campaign. It's a relief. Why? Watch this documentary by @DeutscheWelle: & read this thread to appreciate implications were Nagesh back in power.
@BCNagesh_bjp @DeutscheWelle As a core member of @BJP4India & @RSSorg, & more particularly as the Education Minister of Karnataka under @BSBommai as @CMofKarnataka, Nagesh piloted one of the most devastating attacks on history, culture & literature in the state.
@BCNagesh_bjp @DeutscheWelle @BJP4India @RSSorg @BSBommai @CMofKarnataka He aggressively manipulated school texts and forced kids to read RSS trash. He was essentially pushing to place several books that are found in a bookstore next to my office. Image

#Zelenskyy’s shirt featured #Ukraine #military emblem, not hate symbol”

#russian #disinformation Image
“AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. #Zelenskyy wore a #military T-shirt that featured the official #emblem for the #Ukraine #Armed #Forces. In its center, the emblem includes Ukraine’s official coat of arms.
The image on his shirt did not match the #Iron #Cross or any hateful symbol, according to historians and #extremism experts.”

Heute vor 90 Jahren verübten die Nazis zu Beginn ihrer Terrorherrschaft, die zum Vernichtungskrieg und #Holocaust führte, einen Anschlag auf die Kultur und Literatur. Ab dem 10. Mai brannten erst in #Berlin und später auch in anderen Städten Bücher. 1/ Image
Die Werke von Thomas und Heinrich Mann, Stefan Zweig, Kurt Tucholsky, Carl von Ossietzky, Erich Maria Remarque, Erich Kästner und vielen anderen Schriftstellern wurden öffentlich verbrannt. Alles Humane, Solidarische und Fortschrittliche sollte ausgemerzt werden. 2/
Im Zentrum der #Bücherverbrennung standen die Schriften der Sozialisten und Marxisten. Einer der Feuersprüche lautete: „Gegen Klassenkampf und Materialismus, für Volksgemeinschaft und idealistische Lebenshaltung! Ich übergebe der Flamme die Schriften von Marx und Kautsky.“ 3/

Simon Wiesenthal became our map. On 24 February, full scale #RussiaIsANaziState invasion began that included targeting Jews, killing Holocaust survivors, destroying #Holocaust memorials and using Russian
Protocols of Zion propaganda again for another #Holocaust. Except Odesa Jews were ready. It will take lifetime #RussiaIsANaziState does not have to understand what we did to stop them. #RussiaIsANaziState is collapsing. We ensured it.

You Rashists are never killing Jews again.
Not another pogrom Image

Today, as every year on April 30, I commemorate the liberation of the #Ravensbrück concentration camp—78 yrs ago.
On that day, my mother, who was there, was "celebrating" her 25th birthday.
I pay tribute to her today.
On that day, Hitler killed himself in his bunker.

Mom was a member of the #Resistance in Belgium. She was arrested by the Gestapo in 1943 after her network was denounced. She went from prison to prison as a Nacht und Nebel political prisoner.
Her false papers concealed her Jewish origins.
Her last stop was #Ravensbruck.
2/13 Image
When she was released, she was suffering from typhus and tuberculosis and weighed 30 kilos.
She was taken in by the Swedish Red Cross and gradually recovered in #Sweden.
Forever my gratitude to the wonderful persons who took care of her.

#Holocaust is crime Russians try to blame on Ukraine to justify their Holocausts in past and present. They rewrite their role in original Holocaust and now they do it again. They blame Bandera from 80 years ago to confuse about their crimes now. But #RussiaIsANaziState 🧵
1. Holocaust survivors hiding in bomb shelters because of #RussiaIsANaziState

2. Holocaust survivors forced to be refugees #RussiaIsANaziState

🚨 A former senior minister from Boris Johnson’s Government has finally found a spine & said what is blindingly obvious to all decent people in Britain & beyond, saying Suella Braverman is a “real racist bigot”.

Well said.…
“Sunak needs to build upon foundations we already have – stop the culture wars & create change. But his inaction shows how insecure he is in his own ability.”

The criticism reflects widespread anger felt by many Tories about Braverman’s frequent use of racially charged language. Image
Earlier this month, the home secretary misled voters by falsely claiming that so-called "grooming gangs" were almost entirely made up of British Pakistani men, whom she said “hold cultural attitudes completely incompatible with British values”.

Here he is, the infamous subject of my PhD research: Charles B. Hudson. A native of Omaha, he wrote an antisemitic, fascist newsletter, "America In Danger!", from 1936-1948, was investigated by the FBI, and charged with sedition 3 times. THREAD 1/ Image
Hudson came to national attention with the above photo which appeared in LIFE magazine in 1939. He'd accompanied noted fascist and antisemite General George Van Horn Moseley to the House on Un-American Activities Committee in D.C. 2/
When Moseley joked that the Committee might have poisoned the cup of water on his desk, Hudson sprung into action, whisking the cup away from the general. A photographer caught him in action, and Hudson's nickname became "Poison Cup Charlie." 3/

Jozef & Wiktoria Ulma risked their lives to help Jews during the #Holocaust. On 24 March 1944 the German police discovered the Jews in hiding.

The Jewish family was shot, as was the entire Ulma family - parents & 6 children. Wiktoria was 7 months pregnant. Image
March 24 - the anniversary of the murder of the Ulma family - is today in Poland the National Day of Remembrance of Poles who saved Jews during German occupiation. See this thread to learn about #Righteous linked with #Auschwitz.

Einige Stories zum (spezifischen) Thema #Schule, Mädchen, antimuslimischer #Rassismus (und den #Illuminaten).

Als ich kürzlich mit einer Gruppe geflüchteter, muslimischer Schülerinnen arbeitete, gab es einen seltsamen Kontrast: Die Teilnehmerinnen (17-19 Jahre) waren sensibel
z.B. gegenüber anti-kurdischem Rassismus oder #Holocaust-Leugnung, nannten diese "beleidigend" und "spaltend zwischen den Menschen". Das war positiv.

Zugleich nahmen sie bizarre Illuminati- oder Rothschild-Theorien von TikTok ohne Bedenken für bare Münze.
Im Gespräch wurde klar, dass viele kein "Grundvertrauen" in die Medien und vor allem ihre Lehrer:innen haben: "Was die erzählen, spricht uns nicht an".

Ein Mangel an gesellschaftlichem Vertrauen. Die Gründe sind divers, aber die zentrale Rolle von Rassismus ist klar.

#OTD: Am 17. März 1942 traf der 1. Zugtransport mit Juden aus dem Ghetto Lublin in Belzec ein - die erste Aulösung eines Ghettos im Rahmen der #AktionReinhardt. In den Vernichtungslagern Belzec, Sobibor & Treblinka werden etwa 1,6 - 1,8 Millionen Menschen ermordet.
Dazu: Die verwischten Spuren der #AktionReinhardt - Nur etwa 150 Gefangene aus den drei Lagern entgingen dem Tod, so der Holocaust-Forscher Stephan Lehnstaedt.

Dazu: „Wenn ich in meinen historischen Vorlesungen eingangs des Semesters frage: Was ist die‚ #AktionReinhardt‘ gewesen, dann wissen das von 250 Studierenden drei, vier oder fünf," so Dr. Martin Cüppers.
