“Re-examine all you have been told
in school or church or in any book,
Dismiss whatever insults your own soul;
And your very flesh shall be a great poem…” ~
~ Walt Whitman ~ Preface to Leaves of Grass, 1855 edition #Resist Image

Love the earth and sun and the animals,
Despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks,
Stand up for the stupid and crazy,
Devote your income and labor to others,
Hate tyrants, argue not concerning God,
Have patience and indulgence toward the people. ~ Walt Whitman Image
Have patience and indulgence toward the people.
Take off your hat to nothing known or unknown,
or to any man or number of men,
Go freely with powerful uneducated persons,
And with the young, and with the mothers or families.~ Walt Whitman Image

Who is a currently irrelevant person you’d bet it all is MAGA without looking it up? I’ll go first - guy who wrote Boondock Saints
Anyway I’m sorry the guy who called himself “rotten” hurt y’all’s feelings
Ok y’all knew this was coming next

Who is a currently irrelevant person who you know without looking it up is very “#Resist” but like, doesn’t want to pay higher taxes or defund police or stop abusing their maid? I’ll go first, Trent Reznor

If you still believe it can’t happen here, you’re wrong.

Ask yourselves, how many Jakob Schmid’s do you know of?

Fascism is already here. He’s threatening a dictatorship. We are many steps in.

Whatever you thought you would’ve done in 1930’s Nazi Germany, you’re doing it now.
At the age of 12, Sophie Scholl was required to join the Bund League of German Girls—this was part of the “Hitler Youth”

You can read more about Sophie & her brother, Hans Scholl & the Nazi White Rose #Resistance movement here➡️ hmd.org.uk/resource/white…

Thread on the Nazi Bund…
“Our current ‘state’ is the dictatorship of evil. We know that already, I hear you object, and we don’t need you to reproach us for it yet again. But, I ask you, if you know that, then why don’t you act?“

—Prophetic words from Sophie Scholl, 1921–1943

If the US is a dysfunctional family, the media often plays the peacemaker, whose fear of confrontation derails necessary but uncomfortable discussion.

Example: allowing the Right to browbeat us into accepting extremist judges.

My latest for @RDispatches

religiondispatches.org/why-the-media-…
I suggest reading this alongside Catholic scholar @MassimoFaggioli's commentary on why the specifics of Judge Amy Coney Barret's religious beliefs are not off limits for public discussion and Senate questioning:

politico.com/news/magazine/…

#SCOTUS #FridayThoughts
I also suggest reading @AndrewLSeidel's argument for why any judge willing to accept an illegitimate nomination process is unfit to serve. Even as the GOP pushes ahead with their power grab, we must not forget that this is a coup.

Dumb libs always accuse me of being a grifter

Meanwhile #resist Trump reply guys are literally writing political fanfiction and making bank on it 😂 Image
There is literally no money in being anti establishment, trust me

If I was a grifter I would have just been one of these brainless Trump reply guys

Easy, comfortable money
Guys, could you imagine how much money I could make if I did the character redemption arc (from #resist POV) of me being super anti Biden then becoming a die hard supporter in order to STOP TRUMP

Oh my God my first book would be a goldmine

#RightWingRadical Yea I will admit it I scare my wife with my thoughts and my actions! Cause I’m not gonna sit back and let the crazy #Left destroy our country without a fight! They aren’t hiding their crazy ideas and pretend like they are normal! #Defendthisnation #Fight

To all my #Resist family, Meet @MiraiKJJ. As many of you know I am in the hospital. Marai is my amazing nurse who has above and beyond helped me and a #Resister who had no idea about twitter #Resist. I asked and she said I could share her story to introduce her.

#1
Nurse @MiraiKJJ's parent immigrated to the USA from Afghanistan. Mirai was born here and this is HER COUNTRY and she loves this country despite the fact that she has experienced some serious hate. She hit the MAGA/KAG/EVANGELICAL trifecta hate factor.
Nurse @MiraiKJJ is a women, a Muslim, and a POC. We are the land of immigrants. The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty . . is finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American People."

"Why do Canadians care so much about US politics?"

A THREAD:

1) We care right now because the apartment we live above is ON FIRE and we want to

a) help everyone get out safely and

b) not perish ourselves.

But historically, let's look at some OTHER reasons:
3) At the top of the list is universal health care. Yes, our system isn't perfect, but we all know that if we need it, we'll get help. I can't imagine getting hit with a double-whammy of a cancer diagnosis, knowing it also means financial ruin for my family. So, we feel superior.
4) That may make us seem smug and petty, but it also means we KNOW that universal health care is possible, and we hope our southern neighbours will one day be able to catch up, and do better. We like being a good example to y'all. So, we pay attention to your politics.

I write a good bit about foreign actors desire to put us at each other's throats - this thread is from my 🇺🇸 ❤️

This week I received rather impolite DMs asking why I followed #MAGA or #Resist

My thoughts follow in this #Thread

Continued ... 1/4 Image
At the time I ignored both as low-level trolling, yet while my interlocutors intention may not have been benevolent (they both blocked me for whom I follow) neither made a case as to why I should listen and learn from others.

Continued 2/3 Image
You see, while I am an independent thinking individual, and my writing is apolitical (save for my opinion pieces).

The topics I write about affect our country, our citizens, our companies and does not attempt (nor should it) to divide - we're all in it together

When I try and follow from my followers list they limit me. If you follow me and you want me to follow back, reply to this tweet & I will follow. If I still miss you, DM me. I am so very blessed by all your follows. #RESIST #VetsForBiden #VetsResist
I am on a lot of lists and I have been seeing complaints about me not following back. I am trolled pretty bad by maga and they report me a lot so I am very careful and have to read your bio and posts first to protect all of us. That is how they slide into our threads.
Twitter won't let me follow back the amount that follow me per day sometimes. Back around 12 k I started giving up and just went to when I liked your reply or post I followed.

2/2. BTW, NO 1999, 2016, 2018 news reports re. his Bay of Pigs Squad museum visits mention an “award”, ONLY an “endorsement”.😎 The painting was given as a thank you gift for his visiting (campaigning); there was NO attribution, name, or even a date signifying it an “award”. ImageImageImage
The Bay of Pigs Squad does not issue small frames paintings as “awards”: their awards are actual awards...with attribution, name, dated, & with a seal. ImageImage
