1. #QAnon "Done in 30". January 30, 2020, we are now at "Impeachment end". The ploy to send new Article(s) to the Senate to delay "Boomerang"s with a "perfect" State of the Union. #Q
2. #QAnon “And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.” #Q #Q #deepdream #deepdreams
3. #QAnon Graham says if there is even "a scintilla" of evidence that Biden could've laundered his family's enrichment from the public trust via Burisma, then POTUS' concerns were (obviously) indeed in the public interest! #Q

One of my ‘mummy tweets’ went viral last week (1300+). Points I make about #museums, #race & #racism receive less attention. But these themes are deeply related to the criticism of ‘mummy science’. My key message in this THREAD, an English summary of a German op-ed for @SZ:
@SZ Race is the underlying concept of many museums. Take e.g. the ‘divide & rule’ approach of museums: by neatly separating & ‘handpicking’ certain ethnic groups, they erase others from their not so universal narrative to make it their own. Look at the new museum projects in Berlin:
@SZ Many know that the ethnological collections 2 b housed in the #Humboldtforum are problematic bc of their ‘othering’ approach & colonial context. But what about the #archaeology & antiquity collections opposite the Forum? Why have they not been challenged in this heated debate?

I visited Dachau the summer between junior/senior year. I was struck by how ordinary it was; I then realized the quotidian presence is what made it such an evil place. I felt the horror intellectually, emotionally, and viscerally.

I returned to CONUS and my summer
job at a liquor market. One of my tasks was to deliver wine & booze for parties. I had a large delivery for a wedding in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. It was a Jewish wedding and the bride’s grandfather took delivery of the order. He insisted in helping unload the truck, and that’s when
I noticed his left forearm had a linear tattoo. When I got a closer look, it was a six digit number. He must have noticed the sick feeling I had and told me he was sent to Auschwitz in 1941. I told him I had toured Dachau the previous week during my trip to West Germany.

My great grandfather’s name was Zygmunt Modelski. He was deported to Auschwitz on August 8, 1941 where he died March 30, 1942. #Auschwitz75
My three great uncles Teofil, Zygmunt, and Jerzy were also deported to Auschwitz and survived. My grandfather was the only one to escape. Here you can see Teofil speaking about Auschwitz’s “Black Wall”…
Teofil was later transferred to Buchenwald, where he was liberated by American soldiers including my Jewish great uncle Norman Krasna, whose film of the camp is an invaluable historical source of the atrocity:…

Today marks 75 years since the concentration camp Auschwitz was liberated. It is a poignant reminder of the evil humankind is capable of and the necessity for us to guard against it. However, if we are to live up to our promise of #NeverAgain, we must face some frightening facts:
▪️1 in 2 millennials can't name a single concentration camp
▪️70% of American adults say fewer people seem to care about the Holocaust today
▪️Anti-Semitic attacks worldwide rose 13% between 2017-2018
We are at a crossroads. As the population of survivors decreases, it will be left to us to carry their stories in our collective memory. Let's all do our part.

This short thread brings home the importance of #HolocaustMemorialDay .

If something happened once, it can happen again, and, despite denialists’ claims, the Holocaust happened. It wasn’t even that long ago. #NeverAgain

I stand with my friend @nadinevdVelde, and #WeRemember.
Testimony by @DrJudyStone, who had more than 80 family members perish in the Holocaust.

A quarter of a million people with psychosocial disabilities were killed, nearly half a million sterilised - the majority among them those diagnosed with schizophrenia, a label that automatically devalued worth based on eugenics propaganda.
#NeverAgain #HolocaustMemorialDay
Studies indicate that between 1939 to 1955, an estimate of 220 000 - 269 000 people (equalling 73% to 100% of individuals with schizophrenia in Germany) were marked as "untermenschen, or subhuman", categorized as expendable and exterminated.
Meticulously documented post - war records estimated savings "gained" from the killing of mentally ill patients of state funded metal institutions.

1. In memory of my father Rene Salomon van der Velde and those in my family who suffered, were tormented, tortured and murdered, and who were forever silenced I vow to #NeverForget and to never be silent in the face of hate. 🕊#HolocaustRemembranceDay
2 in memory of great Opa Salomon van der Kaars. My father adored him. He said Salomon would take the train to visit the family on weekends and would always bring him balloon and a cake from the bakery near the station. He was murdered April 04, 1943 . #HolocaustRemembranceDay
3. In memory of my Opa and Oma Betje Akker and Emmanuel van der Velde. He was a butcher and cantor. They were transported in a cattle car and murdered in Sobibor extermination camp July 2 1943. #HolocaustRemembranceDay

A Bosnian Muslim using her veil to hide a Jewish friend's yellow star -saving her from nazis. The whole story is far deeper,connects 2 families and 2 genocides 50 years apart. Let's learn from them on #HolocaustMemorialDay

Before you tweet an empty #NeverAgain -read this thread:

When the nazis occupied & bombed Sarajevo, the Jewish Kavilio family became homeless. Wandering the streets, between ruins +signs declaring that hiding Jews is punishable by death, the Kavilios saw their friend Mustafa Hardaga. He immediately took them to his home.

The Hardaga family lived across the street from the gestapo headquarters & knew they were risking their lives by hiding Jews. Zejneba & the other Hardaga women stopped wearing veils around the Kavilios, because they now considered their Jewish neighbors part of their family.

@michaelwhite BS.

1. #HMD2020 marks not just Jews who died but also others like 3 million Sinti and Romani gypsies who died.

2. What starts with the Jews never ends with Jews.

3. I find it sickening when more and more people deny the Holocaust and survivors pass away you tweeted this BS.
@michaelwhite 4. It commemorates many non Jews who were righteous gentiles like Nicholas Winton and many Albanian Muslims.

5. The heme of #HMD2020 put together by @HMD_UK is #StandTogether Jewish and non-Jewish.

6. In #HMD2020 25th anniversary of the Srebenica genocide is also being marked.
@michaelwhite @HMD_UK 7. Famous Dimblebly report from Bergen Belsen showed British soldiers liberated the camp and were horrified by what they saw and talked of importance of #NeverAgain.

8. Worldwide less people know about Holocaust or deny it. This is playing a key role in rising antisemitism.

My name is Miki Goldman. I'm a survivor of #Auschwitz which was liberated 75 years ago today. Today I'll be taking over the State of 🇮🇱 account to share my story & help make sure that the 🌍 never forgets the #Holocaust. RT this and reply with your questions. #HowMikiSurvived
I was born in Katowize, Poland in 1925. When WWII began I escaped with my parents and siblings to Przemysl. From there I was deported to the Szebnie camp & in November 1943, I was transferred to Auschwitz until the liquidation of the camp in Jan. 1945. #HowMikiSurvived #HMD2020 Me and my classmates before the Holocaust. Unfortunately, I never saw many of them again.
@AuschwitzMuseum @USCShoahFdn @Fondation_Shoah @HolocaustUK @HolocaustMuseum @HMD_UK @HolocaustCentUK @wienerlibrary On January 17, as the Red Army was approaching, the Nazis evacuated the camp & led us on a death march. Many people died from hunger & hypothermia along the way. I escaped by pretending to be dead in the snow & was hidden by polish peasants. #HowMikiSurvived #HMD2020 #Auschwitz75

Its intresting and sad to see how the memorial culture of the Holocaust changed so massivily since the AfD reached power in 2015. In Saxony they are actual strongest parti but not in goverment. Was it @BjoernHoecke who described the Holocaust memorial as " Monument to Shame"
Alexander Gauland the Nazi time and its crime as" bird shit in thousend years of sucesfully German history". And also Gauland sayed:
"If the French are rightly proud of their emperor, and the British of Nelson and Churchill, we have the right to be proud of the achievements of German soldiers in two world wars."

🔥 China used the cloak of construction for Beijing Olympics and Shanghai World's Fair to build encampments for their Uyghers.
It is happening again.

Who is overseeing this?…
Background - The Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region has a population of +/-20m. 8m are Uyghurs...
Since China’s occupation of East Turkistan in 1949 the CCP has been relentlessly destroying Uyghur culture and religion....
An investigation documented camps = program of subjugation. Since the start of 2017, 28 facilities have expanded their footprint by more than 2m sq. meters.

China at first denied, then retrospectively legalized/ began a propaganda rewrite, making the camps job training centers.

Do you agree if one government has a massacre on their record, you always should worry about them to repeat it again? #NeverAgain is Now for #iran #1988massacre

Sorry. You’ve totally lost me @SadiqKhan. Unlike some of your colleagues & despite your posturing before & now, you actively endorsed & campaigned for Corbyn’s institutional racism. Don’t think us stupid. We may forgive, but we shall never forget. London can do better #NeverAgain
Anyone who condemned Zac Goldsmith’s last mayoral campaign against @SadiqKhan as fear-mongering against Muslims, yet still supports Sadiq Khan after he actively & openly campaigned for Corbynistas’ even worse (support for violent) antisemtism,should take a long look at themselves

@jwgop @creisenger @Lis_Smith Respectfully disagree. Dem advisor is friends with a fascist. Grenell wants to "empower the far right in Europe." Instead of repudiating him Lis normalizes him & Trump's fascist regime as does your friend Bill. Fascism. That should be your hard STOP. The apologia is disappointing
@jwgop @creisenger @Lis_Smith I want to tell you a story about "misguided" collaborators John. This is the last picture of my family before deportation, hiding & execution during Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. Dad is middle kid. My Uncle (far left in the back) was himself a "misguided" Collaborator.
@jwgop @creisenger @Lis_Smith He had a job in the Joodse Raad. (Jewish Council) formed by Nazi gov’t. The Council was deeply controversial in the Jewish community. There was pressure to collaborate for many reasons. It was my "misguided" uncle's responsibility to select Jews for transport to the camps.

For shame. “Progressive” @Guardian just endorsed an institutionally racist party in @UKLabour. By doing so it joins far-right BNP leader Nick Griffin, ex-KKK leader David Duke& jew-killing jihadists, Hamas. The editorial just committed the equivalent of “I’m not a racist, BUT...”
The worst part of the Guardian’s betrayal of 87% of British Jews is that despite admitting racism in Labour, their stated reason for not backing @LibDems is because...wait for it, @joswinson over reached by wanting to “stop Brexit”. Following this logic, that’s worse than racism.
And despite these ex @UKLabour MPs themselves *urging* people not to vote for *their own party* (because of racism) Guardian couldn’t even remain “neutral”, like Dear Leader is on Brexit. No, they endorsed a racist party because...the economy. A bit Weimar Germany, no? For shame.

Interlude #2: Next episode by Dr Dre featuring Snoop Dogg. '2001' is a perfect album from start to finish.…
Pre-911 I'd not gotten into History or Geopolitics much. I didn't feel like Nations & how they ran themselves would hold many surprises. Expect folks creating a broken/backwards system to themselves be broken/backwards. #911 reminded humans how quickly this stuff can matter /23
End of the day on 911 I felt like I all I knew for sure was America was about to smoke somebody, maybe a whole bunch of somebodies & that it would be nice to know who actually did it & why. What else can you do? You wait for the President to speak. Yeah. *That* guy. /24

You can be Jewish, but you must call Judaism’s homeland a racist and white supremacist ethnostate.

You can be Jewish, but you must never go there, never support any business with ties to there, never involve yourself with any organization with connections there...
you must disavow family and friends there, defend violence against its people, and must encourage violence in the form of intifadas and terrorism.

You can be Jewish, but you must comply with our rules, our third rails, our definition of AntiSemitism.
You can be Jewish, but your Magen David and yarmulke can be seen as oppressive to some people, so that’s a non-starter. You can be Jewish, but you cannot claim to be a unique ethnicity or marginalized culture because your appearance allows you privilege.

🔥 Quick thread about China, Hong Kong, face masks and Tiananmen Square. Let's begin...
Hong Kong is a liberal non-democracy. 
Because it’s liberal, people can protest, have freedom of speech, freedom of assembly
Because it’s a non-democracy, the government can ignore them.

It’s not a stable combination.

11 years after #26/11 #MumbaiTerrorAttack the days & months after are forever etched in my memory. Many things shall go unsaid but share some thoughts, what can be shared. Walked into my home to hear of some terror attack & a senior cop killed & the visuals filled the TV. My 1st
reaction was - that isnt a bullet proof jacket. Technically it was maybe but it didnt stand a chance to protect against modern weapons. The bullets would go through like knife through butter. Even as I watched got a call - did we supply those jackets? No. Cops fighting with no
protection, can you arrange for free supplies? Thanks to @RNTata2000 & his large heart we supplied free protective gear for the next 72 hrs loading stuff on every flight to #Mumbai Airlines refused to accept money. My team was running around in the midst of the chaos till a DCP

Imagine this was a white supremacist claiming blacks were criminals or Muslims terrorists. Imagine Johnson had backslapped him like this..precisely. And this isn’t even one of Corbyn’s terrorist “friends”. Far-left are hypocrites when it comes to racism #NeverAgain #NeverCorbyn
FYI for media: 2nd shouty speaker Corbyn shares an event with above is none other than Hamas supporter Azzam Tamimi, who said “he takes pride in being a terrorist”. He’s also been a columnist for (surprise surprise) Seamus Milne’s old haunt, the @guardian…
