Okay so the @scottbix article about Kamala Harris supporters is just as bad as people are saying. Another tone-deaf smear by white male media to paint a predominantly minority political identify as rabid against the backdrop of Republicans threatening violence against the FBI.🧵
The piece is essentially just a gratuitous effort to bash fervent VP supporters as “rabid” and “insane” citing to old articles.
The piece DIRECTLY contradicts its premise…acknowledging that Harris supporters “do continue to largely support her.”

So I got this totally charming and not racist woman from @TYT on my timeline and she’s been insulting me for a couple hours and I don’t know I just get the feeling she might not be a great advocate for the Black community. Call me crazy.
I fear for any Black man she’s ever worked with. I get the feeling she’s told more than one supervisor she feels “uncomfortable” around us.
And no I’m not contacting her employer. She works for Cenk lol. You know he don’t give a f*ck. ImageImage

What do some Warrenistas get out of their capping for BernieBros and their hatred of Biden and #KHive?

Neither of them tweeted 🐍🐍🐍 at Warren. They still hate her. They will never vote for her.

What's the tangible benefit of the relationship?

A mutual hatred of Democrats?
Is it they're trying to clear the field so she can run in 2024 or 2028? That kinda undercuts the "Biden is too old" argument. She's 73.
I mean some of the biggest Warren fans on this app bit down hard on Nina Turner's candidacy in #OH11. And they went after Rep. Shontel Brown rabidly. Some of the wildest comments I see about VP Kamala Harris are from #WarrenDemocrat Twitter feeds. I know I'm not the only one.

Sarah Kendzior, an author once greatly admired by Democrats for writing (and tweeting) about the grave dangers of a Trump presidency, has now morphed into a twitter troll launching baseless attacks against President Biden, VP Harris, and those of us who voted for them.
Biden’s voting base is nothing but “troll bots”?
VP Harris is an “unstoppable moron”?

Why is Kendzior saying this? Does she know something we don’t? What does she have to gain by her vicious attacks?

Well, in the lyrics of Nelly…hey it must be the money!
And it is.
Kendzior made her name (and money) by writing 2 books during the rise of Trump’s political career & correctly warning us of the threat Trump posed to democracy.

But Trump lost the 2020 election & books about Trump have over saturating the market, what’s a girl to do next?

People will tell you "if you can't criticize Dems are you in a party or are you in a cult?" You know #BlueMAGA and all that

But mufucka you've been doing this sh*t for six years. Every got damn thing they do it's not enough or you hate it

Think this is as more than "criticism."
You was mad over ice cream.

Then you were mad over Kente cloths. Which the Congressional Black Caucus asked them to wear.

We need to make “Vote Harder or Fuck You” shirts.
Or maybe “I Vote as Hard as I Fuck.” Does that work? Just brainstorming here.
We also need "I'm in #KHive. Do I look like a mufuckin' Karen?" shirts.

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.”

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.

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.
