Hello #khive ...

This fascinating and long-lost interview is currently also running on public television this weekend.
Wow. This great 1964 interview was filled with a prescient spirit and touched on the great Spike Lee Love/Hate excerpt of character Radio Raheem in "Do The Right Thing " #khive. @flywithkamala

Correction. 1963 interview. Kennedy was still President.

my latest—marveling at the men, talking down to the woman; pressrun.media/p/how-the-new-…
“In the Times’ view, the white, male VP’s were “steady hands” with “influential” roles who were busy getting an “education” and “speaking freely.” But Harris, the first woman VP and first person of color in that historic role, might be an “afterthought”” #khive

“The recent frenzy of gotcha stories represents an entirely new way of covering a sitting vice president. None of the white men who previously served in that position were put under this kind of a microscope, and certainly not months into their first term.”
“Trump’s VP is most famous for being chased by a mob that wanted to hang him during a deadly insurrection. But today, Harris supposedly feeling politically constrained is treated as breaking news.”

gimme a break

Black Kos, Tuesday's Chile: Reporters with knives out for MVP Harris need to head to the woodshed dailykos.com/story/2021/11/…
"What lifted my spirits though, was watching a crew of mean, nasty, petty, passive aggressive and sometimes openly hostile pun-idjits and reporters get ratioed to hell."
They tried it, they keep trying us —and we have risen up to smack their tacky asses back down. Ain’t nobody letting them slide. KHive was on the case (love y’all) but it wasn’t just us.

Transparency alert here for my followers or would be followers.

In my 61 revolutions around the sun, I've seen a hell of a lot of life. As I remind some of these youngins, I've driven more miles in reverse than they have forward.

Here's an encapsulation of my TL.

THREAD
I worked as a Hill staffer for 20 years, 6 different members of Congress. I have been involved in politics since I was 12 years old, fighting for home rule for DC; managed over 40 local, county, state and federal campaigns.
Between the ages of 11-25, I have been arrested over 23 times by the police. With the exception of the two times I was arrested with my friend the late Dr. Kamu Jennings in front of the South African embassy protesting apartheid? FOR NOTHING.

my latest — misogyny is a helluva drug; pressrun.media/p/are-democrat…
"The press loves to feature women when compiling lists of Beltway Bad Bosses. Yet hard-charging men in politics earn points for behaving exactly how the women do when they get singled out for running “dysfunctional” operations."
"The idea that poor communication and decision making — not claims of abuse or harassment — are suddenly being treated as big news regarding Harris’ office confirms the media’s obvious double standard when it comes powerful Democratic women." #Khive

Unlike Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton actually elevates toxic, abusive, antisemitic online behavior. And yet she has the audacity to talk about Bernie Bros? The woman she tweets here tweeted out a list of "progressives" who may go through some things pretty soon... " 1/
When people responded, she played the victim, as if she weren't engaged in the exact "toxic" & "abusive" behavior she & #khive project onto Sanders supporters. But she's mild compared to other trolls Hillary has elevated, thanked, corresponded with & had her photo taken with 2/ Image
Here's Hillary posing w/ abusive troll Mr. Dane, to whom she wrote him in a signed letter: "I want to thank you for your very vocal & enthusiastic support of me on social media." He's called Sanders a "fake fucking Jew" who should got ""f*cked w/ no lube by an infected d*ck" ImageImageImageImage

When Rep. Ro Khanna started pressing Vice President Kamala Harris to use her procedural power to push a national minimum wage hike a few weeks ago, he found himself targeted by a swarm of online Harris supporters. latimes.com/politics/story…
Khanna had aroused the wrath of the KHive, Harris' extensive, loose-knit and fiercely loyal fanbase, which celebrates and defends the vice president with equal fervor. latimes.com/politics/story…
Members of the KHive, a riff on Beyonce’s loyal fan base known as BeyHive, sometimes use the hashtag #KHive in their social media posts, and many mark their allegiance in their Twitter profiles with yellow hearts and bee emojis. latimes.com/politics/story…

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇

In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

Cornell University researchers find #Trump to be the #1 spreader of #coronavirus #misinformation, lending massively to #America's horrific #pandemic performance, compared to other countries, and the 210k+ death count.
nytimes.com/2020/09/30/us/…
Cornell researchers analyzed 38 million English-language articles about the #pandemic to distinguish the largest sources of #misinformation and #conspiracy theories. #Trump was the largest driver, instigating nearly 38 percent of the overall “misinformation conversation.”
Public health experts have long known that clear, concise and accurate information is the foundation of an effective response to an outbreak of infectious disease.

The key takeaway from the #VPDebate2020? Same as for the #PresidentialDebate2020:

#Trump admin refuses to commit to democracy.

First #Trump refused, now #Pence has. OUR PRESIDENT AND VP ARE BOTH REJECTING DEMOCRACY. WAKE UP!!
The correct answer, in #America, #Pence, to "what would you do if your #president attempts a dictatorial coup," is "I would pitch his authoritarian ass out the White House door myself."

Dodging that question is damn near as good as #treason.

"I just want the record to show" #Pence "never answered the question" about how the #Trump admin. would make insurance companies continue to cover people with #PreExistingConditions (because they won't) when Trump overturns the #ACA in court.
That said, #Harris and #Biden should answer. Why does anyone think it would be wrong to increase the court seats when the #GOP leaves it unbalanced 6-3? The courts are supposed to be impartial, not partisan. If #Barrett gets appointed, #Dems absolutely should add until it's even.
And then they should set a system like @AndrewYang proposes, and like #Dems just proposed, to set term limits and cycle judges in a fair manner that will maintain ideological balance. The way it works now is ridiculous. nationalreview.com/news/democrats…

After the #senate gave up on stimulus, offering an emaciated $0.5T, #Trump is desperate for a deal to win voters. After starting new negotiations, low-balling, calling it off, then calling it back on when stocks dropped, he's bumped his offer to $1.8T.
axios.com/mcconnell-trum…
Unfortunately, it's all ultimately pointless, as it would still have to go through the #senate and #McConnell still says a stimulus deal is "unlikely in the next three weeks," even going so far as to call economic relief for starving #Americans an ”extraneous issue.”
#McConnell considers packing the supreme court to be the ONLY priority. Two sources close to #Senate leadership said #Trump is desperate and has zero leverage to push them to support a bill.

In an interview, #Trump called for his political opponents – #Obama, #Biden, and #Hillary - to be jailed, relating to 1,000 pages of unverified documents rejected by both #Dems and #Reps on the Senate Intelligence Committee as Russian disinformation.
mediaite.com/news/trump-cal…
The spurious documents suggest Clinton personally tried to “stir up a scandal” against Trump by “tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the DNC,” and that Obama was aware of her actions.
Trump: “Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes — the greatest political crime in history of our country — then we’re going to get little satisfaction. And that includes Obama, and that includes Biden.”

Abandon all hope ye who enter here.

I hope you all are invested in whiskey distilleries. From the sounds of people #onhere they are going to be rolling in some dough over tonight.

#Debates2020
Trump just gets to talk whenever?
I'm starting to think any of the top five Democrats in the primary would be able to do well in this general.

David Sirota defended Kamala Harris from the shitty reporting at HuffPo, though he did it by suggesting the #KHive are analogous to the Bernie Bros. There is one critical difference though. Bernie's paid staff led the harassment & incited swarming.

thehill.com/hilltv/rising/…
I was on the receiving end of Sirota retweeting me to incite a swarm. I have seen him retweet accounts with a few hundred followers to incite harassment. He is a punch-down harasser as is Briahna. Both paid Bernie staff. There is no analogy.
And of course, he does not mention, and probably did not follow or care about, the fact that the worst accusations were from a complete fraud who lied about harassment and threats to raise money.

1/I've studied Newt Gingrich for a while now (not as much as Julian E. Zelizer, read his book, Burning Down the House). Trump uses Newt's "Playbook" a lot. Since Trump-Pence are already telegraphing their play against Kamala ("too liberal") I want y'all to know that's Newt too. Paint a female candidate as extremist (e.g. ruthless in the
2/"In 1978, [Newt] ran an ad blasting his opponent, Virginia Shapard, saying, “If elected, Virginia will move to Washington, but her husband and her children will remain in Griffin. When elected, Newt will keep his family together.” latimes.com/archives/la-xp…
3/If you know anything about Gingrich, you know how hypocritical - and sexist - that is. If Pence attempts to use (as I term it) "The Shapard Play" he'll paint himself as a "family church-going man" while attempting to disparage Kamala's "family values." nytimes.com/2007/03/09/us/…

The #KHive can attest to this being pure lies!! Kamala wasn’t calling for violence!! You fucken 🤡s like to twist shit around!! You defend a murderer in Wisconsin who shot someone in the back, then killed another who tried stopping him!!
But y’all raging about someone getting shot in self defense!! Selective outrage on “self defense”

Y’all need serious mental help!! Jesus cannot fix this and quit using his name!! It’s blasphemy!!!

Since #KHive is not just a collector of receipts, but also of gastrotastophes, I was wonder if folks were interested in rendering a verdict. I have not tried this. It's rated #2 in Portland and is expanding via franchise. But to me...terrifying @RealKHiveQueenB Image
Sorry, not second Image
So, to be fair, I have never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich because I don't like jelly and I don't like peanut butter.

The Dem establishment repeatedly uses the same smears against leftists (UK Blairites used the *same scheme* against Corbyn: BernieBros, misogyny, online toxicity, etc.).

These are power-based tactics, not principles, and anyone on the left who ratifies them is dumb & gullible:
The #KHive is by far the most vicious, disgusting, hate-driven & bigoted online faction I've seen. Anyone targeted by them knows this.

But journalists who droned on & on about BernieBros will never make an issue of it or demand Kamala renounce it. How much clearer can it be???
In case you're still confused about how cynical is the Dem establishment when it comes to these fake attacks -- led by their loyal media allies - here's Kamala Harris' husband *celebrating* the #KHive along with one its most vicious leaders.

Look!

The elasticity, shall we say, of liberal discourse continues to fascinate me.

Here we learn in a viral-among-liberal tweet that naturalized US citizens who came to the US as immigrants aren't *real American citizens*, just like half- of fake-citizens:

Here's it's stated even more explicitly. Immigrants to the US who become naturalized citizens don't have the same rights and prerogatives are *real citizens*, i.e., those born on Sacred US Soil. I think this would be unacceptable in other contexts:

I mean, if you're really that upset about the sacred Rose Garden, and you're not content with the fact that it can, you know, grow back, you can find a way to express that without degrading immigrants who are naturalized citizens.

While #KHive is criticized and attacked, @RealKHiveQueenB is broadly recognized as founder and a leader. When it is lauded, everyone, it seems, is claiming to be the founder. Even Joy Reid. Image
Malcolm Nance, Jason Overstreet, Ryan ChangesHisNameDaily, PedoBeth, and CeaseandDeGrifter all name @RealKHiveQueenB as a leader and she has certainly been attacked and vilified more than any one else.
And you know, so many people are part of #KHive and so many people are responsible for its success. Bianca alone would be a voice crying the wilderness without @blackwomenviews @RhodesToKamala @notcapnamerica @chrislongview and many others which is the problem with listing people
