Around 5 years ago I first encountered the vitriolic attacks on #women asserting their right to politically self-organise from so-called trans-rights activists in a socialist group I associated with at the time. Having been active in radical left... /1
...politics for nearly 30 years I had never encountered such appallingly sectarian, dishonest & personal attacks on the left. My first reaction was to defend #women's self-organisation on the basis that we must also support #LGBT self-organisation so ensuring... /2
...that different oppressed groups each had space & representation to better challenge that oppression. For this I was denounced as #transphobic just as the #women had been for asserting their right to self-organise had been & I first encountered the mantra... /3

Thoughts #Thread: Our bi-party political system, #IdentityPolitics & #media brainwashing serves to only be controlled by #billionaires. The same ones that have started wars, stolen trillions of wealth, raped our children & plotted our #extinction.
This is the #truth and we have hard evidence of it. The only way to combat their power of institution is through unifying our individual free will as a group to counter. Our goal is straight forward and pragmatic. Their power is dependent on our complicity.
Remove the complicity and we win. Their crimes against humanity will lead to their consficated wealth. We need to unplug from their matrix, their system of control though our money supply, subverted religions, media & entertainment that turns people into extremists only to divide

“The charge of racism today is basically tantamount to saying I got nothing…The people themselves in Baltimore admit they've not been able to get a handle on the crime…”

“The only time the press cares about black lives is if one has been taken by a police officer, which is a minute fraction of the black homicide toll.”

“It is absolute educational malpractice for the college administrators…to tell students that they're victims, whereas in fact, everything is open to them.”

#IdentityPolitics takes "the natural, tribal side of human beings who are not inclined by nature to get along with people who don't look like us…And you more of it!”

@JanJekielek @Heritage 🔴 LIVE:

#IdentityPolitics: “I view it as a cancer on the country…As an American, I have a sense of concern for the wellbeing of all my fellow Americans, but I want equal rights under equal laws.”

@JanJekielek @Heritage Watch:

“I see a problem in America on the right…We, American conservatives live like Tocquevillians. But we tend to talk and think like Randians.”

@realDonaldTrump 1/5 Mr. @realDonaldTrump campaigned on American Exceptionalism. From Day 1 he was slandered & libeled. For 15+ yrs @SpeakerPelosi ‘s party has fomented hate via #IdentityPolitics.

It’s now the party of #OpenBorders & #SanctuaryCities

@IlhanMN says ‘white nationalism’? Wrong....
@realDonaldTrump @SpeakerPelosi @IlhanMN 2/5 No. There are many black, brown, yellow & red Americans who oppose illegal immigration.

This is abt law & why we’re great.

Last century my family came here legally. Housed in slums. Names changed. Spat on in NYC. They learned English and assimilated. They flew OUR flag....
@realDonaldTrump @SpeakerPelosi @IlhanMN 3/5 I’m darker than @AOC or @RashidaTlaib. The nerve of calling people like me white nationalists is infuriating.

It’s reprehensible for elected officials to use emotionally charged labels like racist, bigot, sexist w/o proof. I’ll never vote Democrat again.

Only in U.S. is it controversial to have a citizenship question on the #census—one we’ve had consistently since 1820 (and census still asks it today on the annual American Community Survey):
Even the UN—the left’s favorite model institution—recommends a citizenship question in its manual on how to conduct a census.

Countries like Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico all ask. Are they problematic?
On 4/23 #SCOTUS is hearing arguments on the citizenship question for #2020Census—common sense and the Constitution say the question should be allowed.

The #PedophileProject: Your 7-Year-Old Is Next On The Sexual Revolution’s Hit Parade

We cannot dismiss the campaign to legalize pedophilia as fringy stuff that will get nowhere. It’s real and it’s here and it’s gaining strength.…
Activists for #NormalizingPedophilia are on the move. Public acceptance of #AdultSexWithChildren is the next domino poised to fall in #IdentityPolitics. It’s being sustained, among other things, by the rapid sexualization of children in the media and in K-12 education.

We cannot dismiss the campaign to #LegalizePedophilia as fringy stuff that will get nowhere. It’s real and it’s here and it’s gaining strength. It’s a very logical outgrowth of the nihilism inherent in the #SexualRevolution.

@AOC's obsession w/ identity politics is sickening. Her focus on the racial composition of journalists assigned to the 2020 election by @CBSNews and suggestion that journalist's race is to be taken into account is abhorrent.

When you judge people by individual merit (competency, experience, qualifications), it is impossible to ensure that racial quotas ("diversity") are satisfied. The only way to ensure that each identity group is given proper "representation" is to discriminate against people on...
...the basis of immutable characteristics deliberately. If too many white people are hired, some must be descriminated against in order to give their spots to "people of color" and vise versa.

A conceptual example:
In a group of 120 applicants, only 12 are selected. When...

Women are the majority in America.
Stop calling issues essential to our survival #identitypolitics.
We are paid 3/4--or less--than men are for the same work.
We are 80% of the minimum wage workers.
We are the majority of the working class & the working poor.
Single mothers and women over 65 are the poorest people in America.
So when you talk about "economic justice" and the #FightFor15 you're talking about WOMEN--not the white guy Trumpers & Berners the MSM keeps writing about.

The claim of #identitypolitics is meant to shut down discourse on #ReproJustice--but nothing contributes more to women's economic inequality than being forced to have children before she's finished school or is financially ready.
