1-If there is anything good to be said about this #coronavirus pandemic is that the #MAGA #Qanon peeps are finally waking up to the fact that there is no #TrustThePlan or #TrustTheProcess at all
Just con artists preying on your fears and dreams while you donate to them all
2-And even if there is a #Plan, that plan certainly doesn't include YOU, but the rich and wealthy and the usual #NWO stuff re-branded as totally cool stuff and a #5DPlan for the current Admin doing exactly the opposite as #Qanon has said.
I have spoken to a lot of ppl in private
3-Over the last few days, on their realization that they were conned. This is encouraging news.
I got conned into believing #Qanon myself. And for a while there, I regurgitated the same talking points.

1. please RT ad nauseam

I don't think it's on English speaking outlets yet:

There is a #RIGHTWING COUP being organized in plain site in #Brasil BY #Bolsonaro , his corrupt law enforcement apparatus and organized crime NOW.

#BrazilianCoup
#antifascism
#democracyatrisk
2. He has "scheduled" a demonstration for his supporters, for March 15, to CLOSE THE CONGRESS. This is what is called an "auto-Coup" - not a new thing and as bad as one that deposes a democratically elected ruler.
3. The news below are in Portuguese. As soon as I can I'll add whatever is published in English. I can't do that now (write the news story): I'm not there with the sources and I don't have time to produce a good story today.

"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP web.archive.org/web/2012020417…

#Rassistic #Antisemitic incident!!

The #Bundeswehr is again confronted with at least two #rightwing #extremists. The "@BILDamSONNTAG" reports that the Military Shielding Service (#MAD) is investigating several members of the elite unit "Kommando Spezialkräfte" (KSK).
Among other things, a #sergeant in the segant carrer is strongly suspected of being a #rightwing #extremist. The #intelligence #investigation against him should last for several months. The Ministry of Defense (@BMVg_Bundeswehr)has confirmed the process.
The necessary legal action against the #soldier had been opened public because #information had come to the public, says a ministry spokesman in the #newspapper

Whenever confronted about human rights violations in #Kashmir the standard #RightWing Apologists' response is either,
a) whatabout the #KashmiriPandits plight;
b) Look at Pakistani civil rights abuses against Hindus.
Both are wrong, irrelevant and damage #India's #democracy
1. The violence and eviction of the #KashmiriPandits deserved action by the State at the time and now. The perpetrators were armed insurgents. Punishing today's #Kashmir #citizens does nothing to punish those insurgents and even less to create the conditions for the #KPs' return
If anything the Delhi Govt's actions in #Kashmir seem to make cynical use of the #KashmiriPandits' plight as merely a piece of history that justifies the atrocities the State in now inflicting on the people of #Kashmir. Kashmiri Pandits should refuse to be used as pawns.

If this serial destruction were happening to mosques or synagogues it would be headline news across all media.

Whites supremacists would be blamed no matter the evidence.

But it's happening to churches so each is reported as a low key single incident. Same old.
Serial attacks on mosques did happen in 2019. Thread checking out the reaction from those in positions of power and influence to these attacks.
Andrea Leadsom stated "We have to stamp out this vile type of abuse".

"Our hearts go out to those who were affected by these attacks in mosques in Birmingham last night.

It's absolutely unacceptable to see any form of religious or racial, or any form of prejudice whatsover."

10 years ago #DHS sent American law enforcement agencies an intelligence briefing warning of a rising threat of #domestic #RightWing #extremism, including #WhiteSupremacist #terrorism.
#economicrecession & election of America’s 1st #blackpresident fertile ground #radicalization
Military #veterans returning from #Iraq & #Afghanistan, would be attractive #targets for #recruitment, #Republican #politicians & #conservativepundits reacted with outrage & demanded a retraction. The small team of domestic terrorism analysts who had produced report was disbanded
and analysts were reassigned to study #Muslim #extremism, according to Daryl Johnson, the career federal intelligence analyst who had led the team, By the next year, Johnson had been forced out of the #DHS altogether..

1/ Stereotypes and image are formed for a reason. The movie Deliverance showed the horror of America's backlands. "Oh, it's just fiction": it's not. Twenty years later I lived in beautiful Blacksburg, VA, a university town in the middle of Appalachia:
2/ The USA, which had been the "land of the future", the "space exploration nation" became the land of the horrific backlands, always waiting for a chance to destroy Civilization. Is this true? No. But there is a reason for the stereotype.
3/ For the whole democratic world, now, the USA is the land of #RightWing #DomesticTerrorism. This is going to stick for a while. It may take a decade to change. The democratic world can't understand the authoritarian American #GunFetish.

#Fear is the #WeaponOfTyranny.
When slave owners in America wanted to control any desire their black slaves might have to escape or rebel they did not need to break every slave's legs. That would have been to lose an asset. They #lynched the odd slave to send a chilling message.
When the Taliban in #Afghanistan wanted girls out of school, and women in #burqa, they did not beat up or terrorise all women. They merely brutalised - in public - the odd woman to send a chilling message.
When #India's #RightWing fascists wanted to keep the minorities (muslims, dalits, women) in their place in the heirarchy they merely had to send out the #LynchMobs on the odd occasion, video the atrocity and share it on #WhatsApp to send a chilling message

On #ReligiousIntolerance and #violence:
A man was Lynched by a Mob in the Indian state of Jharkhand recently. His name was Ansari, that gave it way to his Hindu tormentors that he was muslim. They demanded that he chant "Jai Shree Ram!" independent.co.uk/voices/jai-shr…
Egregious examples of intolerance towards minority religions, mainly by Hindu mobs, underline the stark criticisms by the US Commission on International Religious Freedom of official apathy in the face of growing religious extremism in India.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Tues- 2/12: The civil rights apocalypse is coming. Stop Trump's nominees!

Last Thurs, the #Judiciary Cmte advanced 44 of Trump’s nominees to the main Senate floor.

📞Call against his picks for⚡️LIFETIME fed court seats

INFO▶️indivisibleventura.org/2019/02/12/mon…
#Indivisible #courtsmatter
In 2018, there were 1,228,678 licensed lawyers in the US.
70,000 of them, or fewer than 6%, are members of of the right-wing extremist Federalist Society. We have noted that EVERY SINGLE ONE of these nominees – 100% – are members. This is not an accident. This is a coup.

😱

Anytime Trump is stopped from doing something truly horrid, it’s most likely because a judge stopped him.

In response, with the help of Trump's #rightwing Federalist Society advisors, they are working on destroying this braking mechanism.

😱
