Y'all know I had to make a reaction video to the #DemocraticDebate for those who missed it. #KamalaHarris shut it down by standing in her truth as a Black woman aiming to make history. It was epic! My thoughts on that &more. #DemDebate #Kamala #Kamala2020 #KamalaHarris2020 #KHive
My earlier tweet about #OperationBlockTheBlackWoman low key blew up but I said what I said. Here are my thoughts on that plus the extra hurdles #KamalaHarris has to clear. #DemDebate #DemocraticDebate #Kamala2020 #KamalaHarris2020
Somebody tap Tulsi and tell her that Assad and Putin are the enemy not the Black Patriots like #MaxineWaters and #AlGreen that called for Trump's impeachment. Thoughts on her tiny violin act plus Steyer and Beto. #DemDebate #DemocraticDebate

Policy director for @URGE_org has an issue with #KamalaHarris being a prosecutor who specialized in child molestation, domestic violence, and rape cases. #Kamala has spent 29 years fighting for the very kinds of victims @URGE_org is tweeting about.
Child rapists belong in jail, period. #KamalaHarris straight out of law school took on these predators and won. I will defend her til I'm blue in the face for taking on the worst of the worst to any sniveling bitch on twitter.
Kamala, pleaaaaase stop hurting these funky ass lil Black blue check people's feelings! They got such different energy now girl...I guess if you don't say "you is smart, you is important, you is special" to them personally or else they start talking shit.

Thread: One of the qualities most of us want in a leader, studies have shown, is someone who cares about people like us. Well #KamalaHarris cares. #Kamala shows up before she is sent for, she speaks up and advocates for causes long before it's in style. #KamalaCares
#KamalaHarris understands that we are traumatizing kids with inaction on gun violence. Beyond her comprehensive gun control reform plan & her record as AG of getting guns away from dangerous people, #Kamala has the empathy we need in a leader. #KamalaCares
When #KamalaHarris met a very shy young Maya, she delicately held her chin and like a true #Momala told her "you always hold that chin up". In a world that can be particularly cruel on little Black girls, affirmation is so important. #Kamala #KamalaCares

Thread: #KamalaHarris has decades of experience as a public servant and elected official (#Kamala got an early start). There's far more to her record than you've heard so dive into her trailblazing tenures as SF DA,CA Attorney General,& US Senator #KamalasRecord #KamalaHarris2020

STOP ERASING BLACK WOMEN! Apparently #KamalaHarris performing gay marriages in 04,defeating Prop 8,& tackling the gay/trans panic defense isn't noteworthy. For all 3 (and just 3) mentions of #Kamala's name to be solely to discuss what the vvhite male moderator said is offensive!
Since we have another Lyz Lenz on our hands who wants to double down instead of make amends, I'm going to tackle each excuse @transscribe has made to justify her erasure of #KamalaHarris.
Be clear, banning the gay/trans panic defense is the baseline bc of #KAMALA. #KamalaHarris convened DAs to combat it in 06. She sponsored a bill as AG making CA the FIRST state to ban it. She co-sponsors a Sen bill to ban it (Warren isn't co-sponsor).

I was feeling frustrated and felt compelled to make a video debunking this myth we’ll all heard that “we don’t know what Kamala Harris stands for”. We know what she stands for; her career has been built on standing up for children.
Harris started her career working on children’s issues and that continued throughout her work as DA, AG, and Senator. Now she’s out with the first comprehensive plan on children’s issues. That is what she stands for. That is WHO she stands for.
Her plan:

✅ 6 months of paid family and medical leave

✅ Policies to cut the child poverty rate by 50% in her first time

✅ Creates the Bureau of Children and Family justice

Thread: Setting the record straight on the narratives around #Kamala's anti-truancy initiatives. #KamalaHarris did NOT lock parents up. Also, truancy has been a prosecutable offense in California since **1977**. This thread will focus on the HuffPo editorial on Kamala's record.
It is FALSE that Cheree People's case is a result of Kamala's efforts. GRIP was an initiative in OC that had been in place since 2008 (3 yrs b4 the new truancy bill) and arrested 11 parents in 5 yrs (08-13). The arrests were ALREADY happening for years under the old truancy law.
A trend with anti-Kamala hit pieces is to cherrypick horror stories that don't involve Kamala yet blame her. The GRIP program that swept up People's had 10,000 people involved to provide resources long b4 making arrests. Kamala had zero connection to it.

There are a lot of people I have encountered that have said they don't care who is the Democratic nominee as long as Trump is out.

I'm not going to settle for just any candidate. All this does is silence the vetting process on a candidate you support. Here's what I want. 1/
I want a president that will fight #ForThePeople .

I want her to think about her legislative plans, listen to her constituents and go back to the drawing board of necessary. 2/
I want a president who has a history of protecting children and know that she will take action on doing so with or without the help of congress.

That she is full of empathy, but can be ruthless & fearless when the country needs her to be. One that has spent her career 3/

STOP EQUIVOCATING

Seems #JoeBiden and #KamalaHarris are trying to convey that they aren't prejudging, but refusing to commit to vote for #impeachment is a big fail.

Warren gave the correct answer: YES.

The need to #ImpeachDonaldTrumpNOW is a moral & constitutional imperative.

Thread: In this historic moment (I'll keep emphasizing) where we have the 1st Black woman in the top tier of a major party's POTUS primaries, the MSM needs to rise to occasion and cover #Kamala's campaign with the competence it warrants. As I will address @time missed the mark.
Rather than inform us of the specifics in #Kamala's #3AMAgenda Molly decides to regurgitate the FALSE narrative that Kamala's agenda is vague/ noncommittal. That is lazy/uninformative. Her plans are specific AND rooted in YEARS of legislative groundwork.
As I mentioned earlier, writers tend to approach #Kamala with cynicism & perpetuate that notion. I've asked before "who is they" now let me ask "who are people"? This insinuates that #KamalaHarris is shifty rather than warm & authentic as we've seen repeatedly.

Thread: #Kamala's historic campaign as only the 3rd Black woman to seek a major party nom (1st as top tier) isn't being met with the professionalism/culturally competent coverage it deserves. #RepresentationMatters so let these Black women reflect HOW it's done right. #Kamala2020
The media is often more interested in the horsesrace vs educating the public on a candidate. The GOLD STANDARD on researching/original substantive reporting is set by @juliacraven with a deep dive into #Kamala's Black maternal health work.
huffpost.com/entry/kamala-h…
We know that horsesrace coverage comes with the territory, however @emarvelous showed how to balance discussing the state of the race with providing space for rebuttal from #Kamala/supporters & providing perspective (i.e. acknowledging smear campaigns).

We're live RIGHT NOW with #KamalaHarris. Tune in now to watch the Senator answer questions directly from the women of the Supermajority community here:
On breaking barriers: "You don't start on one side and end up on the other. There is breaking involved. When you break things, it can be painful...It will be worth it every single time, but it is not without pain, hard work, and great effort." — @KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris What is @KamalaHarris' superpower?

"One of the greatest powers that each of us has, and it's a matter of whether or not we see it or identify it for what it is, is to lift each other up. Women do that so well." #theMajorityRules

Thread: While some politicians don't have the guts to call Trump what he is, a national security threat, #KamalaHarris does. The whistleblower under federal protective custody probably doesn't think Trump's tweets are funny. #SuspendTrumpsTwitterAccount
Before coming forward, on 9/20 #KamalaHarris assured the whistleblower that the American people would stand behind him/her if they came forward and against attacks by Trump. #Kamala has kept that promise. #SuspendTrumpsTwitterAccount
On 9/24 after a formal impeachment inquiry began #KamalaHarris again stood up for the whistleblower gainst the onslaught of attacks from Republicans/Trump. #Kamala called him/her a patriot and reiterated support. #SuspendTrumpsTwitterAccount

Y'all write this shit every 2 weeks NEVER once mentioning the disproportionately lower coverage she gets (3% of the top 4 polling mentions), the higher negative coverage,& smear SM campaigns. The REAL question is why is it Operation Block the Black woman?
This is how vvhite supremacy works...stack the deck then present the warped results as evidence of merit. #Kamala stands on the shoulders of
#ShirleyChisholm and understands the fight she has is 100x greater than everyone else BUT she is up for it.
For a little #MondayMotivation via @JanelleMonae, this goes out to all Black women (with a special shout out to #KamalaHarris). Our playing field is a TIGHTROPE is 50 ft in the air, yet we push thru, look fly, and with our head held high. #BlackGirlMagic

Are we really going to let Chinese-Americans take credit for the building of America's railroad system? The Chinese weren't Chattel Slaves? #KamalaHarris #AmericanRailroads #ADOS
I'm making my way through this book (👇🏾).

The author states in the first chapter: "...Slaves constructed much of the antebellum South 8,784-mile (by 1861) rail network..."
#ADOS #BreakingBrown
The prologue of this book details the story of Rose, a slave who was hired (rented out by her owner) to work on the railroads as a cook. Enslaved women worked not only as cooks but as construction laborers on occasion. #ADOS

#HologramTHREAD: DNC Bullshit

I've slept on this. I've thought about not saying it. I've thought about just keeping it to myself.

I can't.

The DNC made a special provision to keep Tom Steyer in the race and give him a shot at Debate #5.

Billionaire Tommy Boy, late to show up
to the Election of the Century, (1) bought his way into Debate #4 with dubious means, and now (2) had the DNC kowtow to him to keep him (and his money) around for a while longer.

As someone representing a true grassroots candidate, this is INFURIATING. Here's what it is:
Because Steyer has been pouring his $$billions$$ into Iowa and New Hampshire. Every so often, odd polls would show up with Steyer pulling 6% in an early state. There's no way that Steyer can get 3% nationally: He has zero grassroots. He runs $$millions$$ in online ads to get

Every single last one of these townhalls be on some bullshit when it comes to the way Kamala is questioned vs Warren. Moderators need to check their racist bias.
PS- If Warren manages to become the nominee she won't be treated with kid gloves like she has for the past 9 months. Homegirl is SEVENTY years old not 7. When Stephen Colbert is the toughest questioner so far it's undeniable she is skating through unvetted & unchallenged.
Show me receipts like this for EVERY SINGLE candidate in the race.
"That was the clerk in Los Angeles and I just told them they have to start marriages right away". - #KamalaHarris then Attorney General 2013 after being instrumental in overturning Prop 8.

#Kamala is now up on #TRMS. Rachel asks her what she means by "sham process". She discusses how 1000s of pages were dumped at the time 11th hour, credible allegations were not investigated, and #ChristineBlaseyFord was treated like a criminal when she had nothing to gain.
#Kamala reminds us the White House was "orchestrating" and "curating" what the Judiciary committee could learn about #Kavanaugh. "The process by which he was confirmed has caused a crisis of confidence". Impeachment is necessary.

#CriminalJusticeReform. Since starting out as Deputy DA in 1990, #KamalaHarris has been a staunch advocate for victims; particularly children/sexual assault/rape victims. #Kamala's decades of advocacy warrants recognition.

1/15 This race reminds me of the rule in boxing, a split decision goes to the champ. That's how Biden has stayed on top, plus he's authentic both in screw ups and in sincere moments such as talking about the loss of his wife/kids. #ABCDemDebate #joebiden beta.washingtonpost.com/politics/biden…
2/ Elizabeth Warren's strength is her wonky, thoughtful "I'm not a typical Washington politician" and "I have a plan for that". Dodging the tax question makes her a typical Washington politician. #ewarren #ABCDemDebate #taxes theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
3/ Sanders seems incapable of modulating his speech beyond shouting and haranguing. It was interesting, however, that he finally was willing to abandon Venezuelan President Maduro. #berniesanders #venezuela #ABCDemDebate cbsnews.com/news/bernie-sa…
