1. Jesus described this #ElectionDay :
This generation...is like children sitting in the marketplaces and
calling to their companions, and
saying: ‘We played the flute for you,
And you did not dance;
We mourned to you,
And you did not lament.’
.
EXPLAIN...

2. In Christ's Parable, the #children are upset because their companions didn't follow their #Leadership . The children were so entitled that they thought it inconceivable that their companions did not jump at the #chance to follow.

3. This describes the #Dems perfectly. They are not seeking to EARN #vote s, they are TELLING #People how they MUST #VoteBlue simply because the #Democrats are calling the #Republicans #racist or other derogatory names.

THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.

Federal prosecutors indict a #Russian🇷🇺woman alleged to be the chief accountant of an *ONGOING* Kremlin campaign to influence 2018 ELECTIONS in the US & EU (including troll farm Internet Research Agency) financed by "Putin's Chef," Yevgeniy Prigozhin.🤬

cnn.com/2018/10/19/pol…
One major #Russian🇷🇺social-media theme was to exploit white supremacy👉🏼trolling NFL protests against #racist policing, #immigration, the Confederate flag & “the #Charlottesville ‘Unite The Right’ rally” that killed Heather Heyer in Aug'17.

Goal: INFLAME and DIVIDE US.🤬
Pivoting off a piece by "right-wing blowhard" Michael Savage, the #Russians🇷🇺 sought to “forcefully support” Savage’s message that “any attempt to remove Trump is a direct path to **civil war** in the US."😳

"On substance and knowledge" Melania is "most impressive FLOTUS since Eleanor Roosevelt," says this editor, who seems to know nothing about any First Ladies--especially Jackie Kennedy, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton & Michelle Obama.

Let me unpack/deconstruct this.
1/
Hallow is chief political writer at Washington Times. He should know better.

While education doesn't necessarily equal erudition, lack of education generally means someone does not have the same lexicon as a person with advanced degrees.

Melania has no verifiable degrees.
2/
Melania allegedly speaks many languages. We have never heard this. We have heard her heavily accented English.

Conversely, Jackie Kennedy spoke several languages and conversed in them at state dinners.

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

By: @Anis_Shivani for @AlterNet
Thread ✔
1/
Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

2/
I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

Against Normalization: The Lesson of the “Munich Post”

By Ron Rosenbaum @RonRosenbaum1

THREAD✔
1/
THE TRUMP-HITLER COMPARISON.
Is there any comparison? Between the way the campaigns of Donald #Trump and Adolf #Hitler should have been treated by the #media and the culture? The way the media should act now? The problem of #normalization?
2/
Because I’d written a book called Explaining Hitler several editors had asked me, during the #campaign, to see what could be said on the subject.

Until the morning after the election I had declined them.

⁉️WHAT⁉️

@GOP donor Steven Alembik, who gave >$20,000 to @RonDeSantisFL & lined up a speech for him at Mar-a-Lago, tweeted “F*** THE MUSLIM N—-” about Obama recently.🤬

He claims he wrote the tweet in anger, and he’s “absolutely not” a #racist.🙄

politi.co/2QKDydO
Lest you think that this #racist pile of steaming dung made only one PUBLIC slip of the tongue (or tweet), check out his shocking interview with the reporter, where he DOUBLED DOWN on his #racism‼️🤬
DeSantis recently said “monkey this up” about @AndrewGillum, yet denied he had any racial intent.🙄

This latest disgusting rant is the FIFTH #racist issue for DeSantis, his campaign or supporters in just a few months.🤬

VOTE #GillumForGovernor‼️

.@NPRWeekend just interviewed @KSPrior, because we can never highlight enough far-right extremist views. Prior actually claimed Trump and @HillaryClinton were equivalent in their treatment of women (!!!) and applauded her students being disenchanted with the electoral system.
1/
.@KSPrior teaches at Jerry Falwell's #racist @LibertyU where last year graduates returned diplomas en masse due to Fallwell Jr's grotesque support of Trump.

Prior is touting #BrettKavanaugh to overturn #RoevWade.
2/
It was an instructive interview for the utter lack of pushback by @NPRWeekend, which replicated the same MSM trend of allowing the alt-right free range spew.

@KSPrior didn't vote for Trump, but she does, clearly, support his choices, like #BrettKavanaugh.

#Corbyn’s month:
August has seen @jeremycorbyn under increasing pressure due to his #antisemitism. It did not start well.

He kicked off August’s #Omnishambles with non-apology for his behaviour, inviting a Survivor on HMD to compare Israel to Nazis.

theguardian.com/politics/2018/… 1/n
The day after this was revealed in the papers @MichaelSegalov (who apparently blocked me for pointing out his rather craven behaviour) said he should apologise nicely. Michael is not doing anyone any favours by his behaviour, @jeremycorbyn is a racist.
theguardian.com/commentisfree/… 2/n
A reaction carrying over July’s @peterWillsman #racist #LabourAntisemitism, Segalov is focussed on shuffling off the inconvenience:
“But the best chance we have of quelling this is for Corbyn himself to guide his supporters. He can’t be accused of being a traitor to himself. 3/n

On @tagaq's recommendation, I had the chance to watch @Alethea_Aggiuq’s documentary #AngryInuk, It's about how #WhiteSupremacist #vegan lobbyists have decimated Inuit communities with food insecurity. If you care about justice, watch this: nfb.ca/film/angry_inuk
I want to be clear, opposition to the #sealhunt is #WhiteSupremacist and #racist in nature. It is absolutely clear to me that, at best, organizations like @peta ignore their impact on #Inuit. At worst, they're party to an intended programme of starvation.
In the entire course of her documentary, @Alethea_Aggiuq tried meeting with #vegan and #animalrights activists to discuss their impact on #indigenous communities. Every single attempt at communication was met with silence or avoidance.

What do the "reporters" who profit off of the endless transphobic hate campaign in the press think of LGBT people? They are just "unbiased" observers reporting on hate groups like "#WPUK", right? Wrong, todays #TERFLEAKS are of Joani Walsh, @DailyMailUK and @thetimes "reporter"
How did a RW reporter for the Daily Heil get into her 2 minute hate against trans ppl every week? Radicalised by Janice Turner's hateful "reporting" at the Times. Into believing Alex Jones level conspiracies about "Big Pharma", she works with "radical feminists" and "lesbians"
Classic right wing scare tactics of your "daughters are in danger!", she slips into this new hate group seamlessly, despite being a racist right wing Tory who hates LGBT people in general (Don't worry, it's coming).

I lost over 100 followers this week standing up for WOC being attacked by white women.
I'm sorry to have lost them because it means those folks missed the point.
White people have an obligation to POC in America because of the damage #racism inflicts even if we aren't #racist.
1/
The hardest words in any language are "I'm sorry."
Acknowledging our flaws goes against ego.
But it's essential.
I know I am a strong person with strong Socialist politics.
I know I can be intense.
But I am a fiundamentally kind person who doesn't want to hurt people.
2/
At times I know I <have> hurt people--we all have.
And that is my point: If people tell you you have hurt them, listen.
I don't mean casual snark, but hurt.
Listen.
Say you are sorry.
Repentance is under-utilized and under-valued, and that's not just my Catholicism talking.

The @OMAROSA story today has several important facets, none of them risible.

This is a woman who was in Trump's inner circle and who had his ear.

Prior to him calling her a "low life" on Saturday, Trump lauded her and her work in various tweets and interview comments.
1/
Trump wants you to believe #Omarosa is a liar, but then there is the tape she played on @MeetThePress.

Which is evidentiary.

The #GOP and #RNC are concerned---they started an #OmarosaUnhinged hashtag and are busy tweeting about her, as are Trump's surrogates.

2/
#Omarosa isn't "unhinged." She's vengeful. Is she a liar? About some things, verifiably. About others, verifiably truthful.

That she was able to go all over Trump's White House recording people is a cause for grave concern.

It speaks to Trump's incompetence as a leader.

#AndrewSullivan has been a contrarian conservative transplant for decades now.
Pro-Bush, pro-Bell Curve, #misogynist to the core.
His latest screed is an embarrassment to @NYMag, which reps some stellar writers. There's so much awful to excerpt here.
1/
nymag.com/daily/intellig…
We're at a racial crossroads in America right now. Some of us white people have tried to write about it with passion and humility. Not #AndrewSullivan, who refers back to the atavism of 1920s xenophobia and racism with an appallingly anti-intellectual lack of self-awareness.
2/
This latest screed is a paean to white male fragility. The bluster and outrage #AndrewSullivan reserves for #SarahJeong is typical of his sneering, superior form of racist baiting with a hefty dollop of misogyny folded in.

It's essential to decry such writing when we see it.

1. Had the misfortune of hearing a full-on, old-fashioned white Colonialist diatribe delivered on CKNW this morning by Bruce Allen on his not so "Reality Check" .

#racist #classist #Transmountain #cdnpoli #bcpoli #protecttheinlet
2. Bruce delivered all the typical supremacist big business standard lines of comradery. Bruce was speaking about the Kinder Morgan protest on Burnaby Mtn & to his audience to keep them focused on the 'right talking points'.
3. Bruce spoke about the water & land protectors in the most dehumanizing terms he’s allowed to on morning radio. He called First Nations peoples DTES homeless derelicts “unaware of what they’re protesting anyway”, merely looking for a place to squat.

It’s so funny and ironic how #liberals call #RadicalFeminism#WhiteFeminism”, yet, I’ve come across so much actual #racism directed at me and other #GenderCritical black women from self-righteous #trans activists/allies and libfems. 🙄
I’ve gotten more racism from that crowd in the past two weeks than I’ve gotten from any #RadicalFeminists in two months. Or any amount of time. Liberals routinely erase the radical #WomenOfColor from history who either called themselves #radfems or influenced radical feminism so
that they can call radical feminism “white”, misappropriate #Intersectionality from #BlackFeminism to try and justify including males in #feminism, argue that “transwomen are women the same way Black women are women”, (racist and dehumanizing comparison of black women to males),

I was denied service at 2 diff. Chinese restaurants in LDN. EP1, my cousin asks the lady why she was asking us 2 leave and “this is not a fast food restaurant” she answers. He calmly tells her that she cant do that. I told my cousin 2 let it go & we walked out #rascismisalive
EP2 My @malaikaaminata friend & I walk in2 another Chinese restaurant. We sit at an empty table. A lady comes over asking us 2 move upstairs. Prepared by my previous incident I say no right away. She starts shouting at us 2 move bcos the table is for 4. #rasicismisalive @kuvie_
2 avoid an incident, I look right over at the next table & notice 2 ladies sitting at another table for 4. I ask them if it’s ok for us to share the table. They agree and make room for us. We sit down and this is what ensues @wanlov @panjianoff @niikotei @tafari #rasicismisalive

.Every day in twitterverse I watch straight young white people who identify as "progressive" demean and diminish the lives of the marginalized & insist that WE need to recognize that "economic security" is the #1 issue all liberals need to focus on which will then solve all. (1)
.I watch them speak from their lofty privilege not realizing that they are standing on a platform built by the very people they demean. Their lack of gratitude for the work of these before them blows my mind. Their robotic devotion to an establishment man with minimal (2)

This is Trump's Amerikkka. This is a perfect example of why Trump's outrageous #racist statements are NOT DISTRACTIONS.

This is how the @CPB agents treat KIDS they think of as #animals. 1/3 #FridayFeeling #Immigrants #abused #dehumanization
Wednesday the @ACLU published a report of instances of abuse against UNACCOMPANIED MINORS from 5 yrs of DHS security documents.

@DHSgov didn't report #childabuse allegations to the @FBI.

Once Upon a time, long long ago when there was no Internet, we used to phone buildings rather than people, when global trade was confined to a limited number of basic goods and very few services /1
There were Trades Unions. These organisations grew up protecting the rights of workers and furthering socialism and progressive politics in a highly regulated world of trade and capital. /2
Then in the 60s 70s and 80s they increasingly became less effective and struggling with new technology in manufacturing and global capital markets until one day they were brutally put down by the Iron Lady. /3
