Late last week, I received a message from I can only hope was from am MAGA umm.. idiot. He wanted to know why I,a Canadian was getting involved in something that wasn't any of my business- meaning becoming a part of the #Resistance . I had no right to offer my 2 cents in US ...
politics. That your 'commander in brief' was the best thing happen to the country in generations.
Of course in true cowardly fashion- he blocked me so I couldn't respond to him directly. So please- be patient #Resisters while I babble this is going to take a couple minutes-
Yes, I am a PROUD Canadian- for that I'm not going to apologize. I live about half way between Buffalo NY and Toronto. Like almost 90% of the Canadian population- I live within 250 miles of the US Border. I have friends in relatives living the US- and enjoy visiting them.

I’m worried about some tweets I’m seeing. #Resisters attacking blue candidates or insisting on only support candidates of a certain identity.

I’m not saying discussion about privilege is invalid. But for god’s sake, where do you think this rhetoric comes from? Who benefits?
1)
In 2016, Russia stoked divisions between the left and center flanks of our party. We all took the bait, myself included. In the end, enough people in 3 states voted 3rd party, or stayed home to sink a close race.

In 2018, we united and won. That is our way to victory in 2020.
2)
Don’t begrudge a candidate’s turn in the sun.

Be aware that most of your favorite candidates are going to lose. That’s democracy. We need to unite around the winner with as little baggage as possible.

The GOP will pile plenty of dirt on the winner, we shouldn’t add to it.

Just learned about #TeamPillowForts while blocking another account tweeting #disinformation. Turns out there's a 😠nest of accounts that ties back @LouiseMensch and therefore to Rupert Murdoch.

These times are hard enough without fake resisters gaining then abusing our trust.
@LouiseMensch Rupert Murdoch owns Fox Entertainment Group, which includes the Fox News entertainment channel.
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Mu…
Louise Mensch (2016): "A News Corp spokesman confirmed that Mensch has been working for the company owned by Rupert Murdoch on 'digital projects in the creative/strategic arena.'"

Tip for #Resisters
Any of these words or phrases in a bio means you are NOT dealing with a MAGA & can safely follow:
reader
educator
scientist
thinker
weed
vegan
diversity
environment
passionate
"happily married"
"love my cat/dog/pet/children/fellow humans"
"oxford comma fan"
Also, if you detect any attempts at wit, irony, sarcasm or common sense - even if they are not successful - NOT a MAGA.
Use of puns, including very bad puns - NOT a MAGA, but probably my Dad.

1/ Day 30 of Trump's shutdown: Gov't workers are suffering. Trump's winning by blaming Dems for not negotiating. BuzzFeed nailed Trump for directing Cohen in illegal acts. Then Mueller made his first mistake & now both have egg on their faces. Trump wins. Enough! Resisters Unite!

Thread. #MyLifeAsAResister looking back at 12 months which feels Iike 12 years. So much happened every day, but we put one foot in front of the other, wading through the lies, the chaos, the deconstruction of our institutions. We keep our faith. 1/24
January 2018, for the second time in two years, women and the men who support us, gathered by the millions to send a message. We will not be cowed by a regime that does everything to take away our own agency. My cousin Zigi and I at the #WomensMarch @ZigarinaZigi 2/24
February 2018. Looking for inspiration and wisdom, I went to see Dan Rather, whose book is a must read for resisters. @DanRather spoke eloquently about what he learned from decades of reporting, that we are mighty together, that our core values hold and that it IS up to US. 3/24

Please remember it is a psychological self defense mechanism to normalize what’s going on around you

And when that doesn’t work, many people will find they grow numb or hardened to things that used to bother them immensely

#Resist normalization

#Resist hardening of the heart
How do we keep from normalizing the current political state of affairs?

How do we keep from hardening our hearts?

We can start by regularly reminding each other “This is NOT Normal” and emotionally supporting each other.

Encourage breaks and discourage quitting.
Now I’m gonna be honest and admit that I’ve been struggling with the numbness.

I have been for a few months now.

You know what keeps me from going fully numb or quitting?

#Resisters keep me here. Their passion re ignites mine.

Never forget how important we are to each other.

#Trump said his Russian business efforts, including during the campaign were "Very legal" and "VERY COOL."

HAHAHAH....yep, I sure do agree with that. Very cool, indeed.

Of course, most of the media have no clue, though some of them do, b/c some have reported the truth.
Well, sommanab*tch! The link I saved from one of the media outlets that knew ...now seems to be gone. Of course I couldn't archive it because it was WaPo. They wouldn't let me archive it.
Well, here's another one, by Buzzfeed, no less. They KNEW that Trump worked WITH the FBI, yet they participated in the conspiracy against him to frame him as the guilty one.

yeah, this.

said this the other day, but bc #resisters mostly care/think about thorny racial issues insofar as they can use them as a cudgel against Trump, they mistake the horse-race stakes/debate as the *actual* stakes and the entire spectrum of thought around those issues.
case in point, from our inbox, in which the letter-writer primarily views the pushback to the Warren video as an inconveniently timed attack on a well-liked Democrat:

WARNING
The real reason the GOP wants to shove #Kavanaugh onto #SCOTUS

Next week; #GambleVsUnitedStates comes up for reaffirmation.
IF IT'S OVERTURNED,
TRUMP’S FEDERAL PARDON will EXTEND TO the STATE LEVEL TOO.
#Trumpistan #Resist #VoteBlueNoMatterWho

Next Friday, October 5, the Court will hear a case –#GambleVsUnitedStates – which has the potential to Overturn 200 yrs of Jurisprudence Precedent.

That would Give Trump TOTAL POWER OVER THE PEOPLE!

Tragically what the #CorruptGOP doesn't seem to get is that because they are not dealing in facts, & they are propagating falsehoods to their base, an entire generation of Republican voters, workers, apparachik's at every level; the U.S.A. loses ultimately. There are
People basing real decisions, at real jobs- both public & private sector-on false information. We have the most powerful military, biggest Economy, in the most industrialized nation in the world making Domestic & Foreign Policy based on fasle information.
This can & will end only one of two ways. Either we reverse course before catastrophic consequence or we experience what could be the most catastrophic multi-national event that has occurred since WW2 & the most grave consequences since our Nation's inception nearly 300 yrs ago.

I stand in solidarity with those currently participating in the nation wide #PrisonStrike.

Human rights are human rights and everyone deserves to be heard.

The day that these prisoners aren’t contained in private for profit prisons is the day I will reconsider where I stand.
#Resisters

If you weren’t aware there is a nationwide #PrisonStrike currently going on since August 21 and will continue until Sept 9.

Here are their demands. They depend on US to get this info out as they’re being mainly ignored by the media.

Please take the time to read.

Calling on ALL #Resisters 📢

Are you Ready to TURN UP THE HEAT on this Treasonous Dictatorship? 💪

Are you ready to use the most effective tactics employed by successful #CivilResistance Movements in democratic countries?

ARE YOU READY TO WIN? ✊

If so PLEASE ENTER 👇
Study of successful #NonviolentCivilResistance mvmts use a combination of 3 tactics👇

"The Tea Party showed us how much
power can be leveraged when all 3 are used at
once. If hundreds of thousands of people
contribute in this way, Trump and the
Republicans won’t stand a chance."
It's ESSENTIAL to support ALL 3 tactics

Like a stool w/3 legs-ALL ARE REQIRED

In our #Resistance mvmt 2nd two tactics are STRONGLY supported (i.e. pressuring elected officials and promoting dire importance of voting ✊

It's time to beef up support for Protests 🐮👊

#Swim steady and firm”, 15 yr old David told the others. They had been prepared. Their go-bags had the clothes approved by Deplorables and they had a small list of safe-houses in the mainland. All the adults in the island died do make their escape possible. #vss365 #AmWriting
In the mainland, it was safer to marry the kids to each other. They would live with their assigned parents according to the fake identity genealogy. What used to be known as the #cycle of abuse had been normalized. They had to blend in and hide in plain sight. #vss365 #AmWriting

****OPEN LETTER TO AMERICA***

We are scared. We are angry. We are outraged. You had a chance to elect the finest most competent candidate of a generation – yes I am talking about @hillaryclinton but your flawed electoral system did not allow this to happen. Your “President”....
...refused to release his tax returns, mocked the disabled, incited racially offensive comments about the Mexicans. He managed to “brush off” the Billy Bush bombshell where he said that he was able to grab women by the p**** had a fake University where he ripped off millions..
...and had been bankrupt a number of times stiffing small businesses and yet millions upon millions of you voted for him. The record job growths and financial recovery since the GFC of 2008 and the progressive socially uplifting 8 years of President Barrack Obama simply wasn’t..

Extraordinary acts come from ordinary people. We mist read and learn as much as we can in order to squash this regime They are following Hitler's rule book for #FACISM we must learn how past #Resisters won. We need to identify ourselves within our bbc.com/news/magazine-…
communities. If GOP win #Midterms2018, 45 will feel more empowered at which point #MuellerProbe will be dead! It's time to bring #theresistance into our daily lives. I propose we wear #WhiteRibbon to display our solidarity within our communities.
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_rib…
The #WhiteRibbon would ellicit conversation within our communities that wouldn't necessarily occur via social media. Most importantly it would be a reminder that there are more of us than them. Only shop at white ribbon est take our $ out! #SundayMotivation
