Congratulations #PeteButtigieg on a well ran historic campaign. If you caught my #SCprimary2020 Recap then you arent surprised by this development. Here is a rough cut since I'm hopping on a flight.
Full 🎥:
I can't think of a higher note for #PeteButtigieg to spend his last day on the campaign trail than commemorating #Selma55. To #TeamPete supporters it has been fun getting to know y'all after my girl dropped out. You're welcome to stick around. Hugs & support to y'all 🤗

Long-ass, pissed-off thread.

On Feb. 18, @ElectionsIndex began counting the number of mentions of leading candidates on @MSNBC. At that point, just 2 states had voted. @PeteButtigieg finished 1st in Iowa, 2nd in New Hampshire, and *led the field in delegates.* Strong, no?

1/
But what neither Pete nor his supporters could know is that @MSNBC was engaged in a campaign – either consciously or subconsciously - to erase the front-running candidate.

The network didn’t always do it through overt means – at least not on some of their shows.

2/
Rather, they just stopped talking about him.
When they did mention him, it was typically in unflattering terms.

Nevada voted next on Feb. 22 with Pete finishing 3rd (higher than expected) and the @ElectionsIndex count ended two days later.

Today I had the pleasure of sitting with Ms. Joann of Kingstree, SC. She told me she was tired of always seeing aging candidates on her tv and was ready for a younger, fresher candidate. She opened up more the longer we sat together. She told me about 1/
her fear that gun violence might take her grandsons. Her concerns over a meager job market and the increasing price of a college degree. Once I turned the conversation to The Douglass Plan and our vision for an America that serves us all. Ms. Joann burst into tears! 2/
As she signed her pledge to vote for @PeteButtigieg on February 29, she said “This man here looks like a winner. I will pray for your victory.”

THIS is who America should work the hardest for and THAT is why this election is so vital. #PeteForAmerica #TeamPete 🇺🇸 3/3

A #TeamPeteThread: I first heard of @PeteButtigieg as I was sitting on my sofa on a cold Arch night in MN and tuned into @CNN. I was immediately intrigued on the idea of restoring the values of freedom, security & democracy. So I donated! #PeteForAmerica #WinTheEra
I sat on that same couch in April to watch @PeteButtigieg officially announce his candidacy for the @TheDemocrats nomination for POTUS. #TeamPete #PeteForAmerica #PeteForPresident #WinTheEra
Then in May I got the privilege of hearing @PeteButtigieg speak @FineLineMPLS about waking up the next day to see 2 men on the cover of @TIME w/ the title “First Family”. We even chatted for a couple minutes. BTW, all of this was in thanks to two generous #TeamPete folks.

Something I will legitimately never understand. why attack another candidate? You could use,the time and effort to volunteer, fund raise or canvas. you would, rather spend your time on a social media. platform bullying other people. Yes it does qualify as bullying.
Just don’t get this I literally don’t.
So here’s the thing. if we keep dividing ourselves further, and further Donald Trump, has already, won. end of line end of discussion. If you continue to further untrue,negatives about candidates Donald Trump has already won.

🚨 Breaking: #PeteButtigieg donated to an anti-LGBT marriage equality candidate per 2012 FEC filings.

Pete’s donation came at a crucial time in the fight for marriage equality.

🎥: #MayorPete-funded candidate Joe Donnelly reiterating his anti-equality position during a debate.
Per the FEC report, the “Donnelly for Indiana” campaign recorded a $409 donation on September 17, 2012 from #PeteButtigieg “Mayor” employed by the “City of South Bend.”

Joe Donnelly campaigned on anti-marriage equality even as the issue gained more support under President Obama.
#PeteButtigieg’s September 17, 2012 donation to an anti-marriage equality candidate needs to be seen in the context of the 2012 push for #MarriageEquality:

On May 9, 2012, Barack Obama told ABC News, “I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

“Kids” from “lower income, minority neighborhoods” don’t have “someone they know personally who testifies to the value of education.” - Pete Buttigieg, 2011 South Bend Mayoral Candidate

#MayorPete #PeteForAmerica #Pete2020 #Buttigieg2020 #Buttigieg
🔦:The longer clip isn’t better:

#PeteButtigieg agreed (🗣: “definitely”) w/ Libertarian Pat Farrell that he/retired people could be mentors to kids.

Pete identifies poor “minority neighborhood” kids as needing mentors b/c no one they know “testifies to the value of education.”

Why this Boomer mom of two GenZ kids is supporting @PeteButtigieg. The theme this week for articles and posts and comments against Pete is his experience. What seems to be missing from this is when politics is experienced personally. Pete is a Millennial. What does that mean?
It means his generation and GenX were the warriors that fought Boomer and GenY wars. He wasn’t too young to be a counter-intelligence Officer in Afghanistan.
It means @Chas10Buttigieg was caught up in outrageous college tuition and has 6 digit debt because he wanted to teach.
It means that guns are still killing people in the streets, in schools, in places of worship, and backyards. It means they were raised in the years where they were taught everyone is equal but don’t see it in reality. It means pot being legal some places and others going to jail

Only 1 Dem candidate isnt a Billionaire or Millionaire or steeped in DC-speak.

Only 1 Dem candidate shares $100k of college debt, lives in a fixer-upper & doesn’t have the priviledge security of a senate seat. /1

#PeteForPresident #PeteForAmerica
Only 1 Dem candidate lives w the ugly reality that:
He can be legally denied an apartment or lease
Barred from ordering a cake
Denied the opportunity to donate blood
Banned from adopting a child
Legally fired from a job for being his true self

#PeteForPresident #PeteForAmerica
Only 1 Dem candidate geeks out on Green sewers
Has a spouse who has been homeless
Worked Intelligence in an active War Zone
Has the integrity, character, strength to admit when he’s wrong, take ownership & correct

A thread for this #TeacherTalkTuesday

Across the country, teachers and students are heading back to school. As a teacher, it’s one of my favorite times of the year -- one filled with incredible optimism that reflects the hope that comes with a fresh start.
But we’re also at a make-or-break moment with our public education system. The same old debates have left us with underfunded schools, underpaid teachers, and growing inequality.
If we’re going to meet the challenges of today and the future, we have to get public education right. @PeteButtigieg has plans to transform how we fund our schools, value our teachers, and educate our students. We’re just getting started, but here are a few:

2/ I believe @SteveGrossmanMA became the first to endorse #Pete2020, on 4/11. He is a former DNC Chair, former Massachusetts State Treasurer, and current CEO of the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a non-profit that trains inner-city entrepreneurs.
bostonglobe.com/metro/2019/04/…
3/ Grossman called Pete “a Midwestern, down-to-earth, smart, savvy, in-touch candidate” who can flip industrial states. “My concern is the future of the US... I think Pete has the capacity to be the beacon for an awful lot of people who really feel a deep, deep sense of concern.”

1/ The HEALTH piece is most important to me. At 25, I had a quarter size blood clot in my lungs. I had trouble breathing, and as a Pre-Med major early in college I learned about blood clots. The intake nurse didn’t believe me when I walked in the ER short of breathe with
2/ chest pain. I cried and screamed for them to believe me. I felt I was dying at TWENTY FIVE. The ignored me. I stopped a black doctor walking through the emergency room and told him. I was immediately brought back for test. Within 30 minutes I was in ICU. CT scan revealed a
3/ blood clot. My mom was told I might not survive. I did because 1) I knew the signs, and 2) a black doctor took me seriously when the white nurses would not. I owe Dr. P my life. Health Equity is truly a life or death situation. Implicit bias in the ER is a huge problem.

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.

1/TYT, in their unending crusade 2 tear dwn Buttigieg, has shown again they r willing 2 misrepresent facts & mischaracterize events 2 meet their ends. This vid is latest example & while a lot 2 unpack, I’m going to focus on Cenk’s characterization of PD Chief demotion & the facts
2/Paraphrasing Cenk @ 4:30: “Black police chief (Boykins). Pete fired him. Why? There were tapes showing cops saying racist things. The police chief and other person revealed that information & it was inconvenient for Pete & SB so he was fired.” Lets break this down:
3/In court docs, officers - and Boykins - claim recordings began in 2010. Officers claim it was to monitor them for “loyalty.” These recordings allegedly continued for *two years* before Pete became Mayor.

@Asians4Pete @RobertoCSada @PeteButtigieg @SenGillibrand Because not too many people have the kind of analytical clarity based on firm principles and values that Pete does. I feel like Pete is a monk philosopher who spent years working out his views beliefs thoughts, ideas and underlying values, faith etc...
@Asians4Pete @RobertoCSada @PeteButtigieg @SenGillibrand And then thought about how they would apply in a real political world. Tested them while being a Mayor, making adjustments along the way. And then realized he could apply them at the national level as President...at this unique moment of need...
@Asians4Pete @RobertoCSada @PeteButtigieg @SenGillibrand This is why he never falters and comes across authentic no matter where he speaks or to whom he speaks. They are part of his DNA. Embedded in his mind, brain and heart. So they just come out naturally. No one can beat that. And that gives him confidence and conviction...

My schedule is crazy some weeks so the posts here and on @EastBayForPete are more sporadic than I would like, but something I am seeing a need for is a local megaphone for minority voices. There's a lot of work to be done to make sure minority voices are heard loud & clear
Thinking about creating a series of original content based on the interviews I can get with local minority community leaders. People from BLM, Immigrant, Muslim communities etc...
The goals would be:
1) To inform my local community how they can better support these communities
