ok let's do a mini #semiotics lesson on Avenatti's Twitter profile (I'm blocked by him 🤣) aka how he wants to be seen by the public.
I want to focus on his header photo and his avi photo.
Let's do his avi first:
The photo is staged to make Avenatti look like a tough fighter.
The American flag in the background is there to show how "patriotic" Avenatti is. The ropes for the boxing ring are there to show that Avenatii may be a fighter, but he's not a dirty no-rules street fighter, he's a nimble boxer who stays within the lines. The "Spalding" and
"GLEASON'S" logos reaffirm his athleticism & "fitness." The watermarks on the image show he's a cheap bastard who wouldn't pay for rights to the photo w/o watermarks. His watch is fully outside of his shirt cuffs, because it shows he's wealthy enough to own a prestigious watch.

THREAD: The rise of political tribalism might be overstated, according to political scientist @MattGrossmann. niskanencenter.org/blog/political…
Since the 2016 election, there HAS been a real rise in negative partisanship...and party bias may even have economic consequences. BUT there are a few caveats: soundcloud.com/user-735940457…
1.When answering questions about opposing parties, citizens tend to think more about political leaders than their fellow citizens. And many citizens dislike BOTH parties’ leaders.

(1) The anti-white sentiment in #SouthAfrica is an aspect of #tribalism.

Outsiders see it as racial, because they r not aware of the endemic internecine conflicts which occurred inter-tribally - long before the white Boers arrived in South Africa.

It's an economic power play
(2) which would unfold against any land-owners should the white #Boers not be there.

It manifests itself as racism, but in reality is an economically-motivated #tribalism (you have - we don't - we take) with #Marxist elements seeded into the movement to foment hate and violence
(3) Complicated #Marxist dynamics, fueled by #tribalism (which as an ethnic phenomenon can encapsulate racism) - but base motivations reside in economic differences versus color or tribe - despite what alternative state media in SA maintains

Prime example of how #MindVirus works. It's all tied up with #Identity & #Tribalism & the basic human need to be part of a community. Once you belong, your #LizardBrain is primed to defend the system out of fear. Threaten the thought system, threaten the identity /1 #Exvangelical
When I look at the #Exvangelical phenomena, I see #SocialEvolution at work. Driven by a group of individuals who've reached a level of #personaldevelopment that allows them to become objective of former thought systems & their limitations. The old beliefs now seen as harmful. /2
The former beliefs & thought system becomes "ego alien" which results in resistance in many ways. Anger being prominent, but many feel a need to change the old system. They feel an empathy for those still ensnared in limiting, harmful beliefs. They try to reach out only to find/3

1. @realDonaldTrump #RedPill 10-part thread laying out prediction of how #POTUS will expose evil #Cabal & workings of #DeepState #Coup. #Memo will reveal #DeepState abuse of intel services, leading to exposure/removal w/in #DOJ, #FBI, #CIA, #Agencies (leave behinds), #SES, etc.
2. @realDonaldTrump Next, we will need to expose, remove, and try for #Treason those involved in the #DeepState. Their nefarious work doesn't stop with the current #Coup but is widespread, including more recent scandals (#Benghazi, #IRS, #FastandFurious) but goes back decades.
3. @realDonaldTrump Before the full #TRUTH can be disclosed, we must round up, arrest, and try for #Treason and other relevant crimes those involved with the #Cabal. I'm unclear on sequence here due to need to manage the public (civil unrest will be pushed by #Cabal).

1.
#ReleaseTheMemo #ObamaGate #FISAGate

I think I figured out the remaining key questions I had. #Treason by the #Cabal was obvious. I have laid it out earlier in this thread: threadreaderapp.com/thread/9460448…

...but knowing something = proving something
...especially when dealing with
2. ...#Corruption and #Treason on both sides of the aisle
+
#LSM #LyingSycophantMedia that will actively hide #Truth and invent/support #FakeNews, such as #RussiaCollusionLie
+
#CognitiveDissonance & #Tribalism that affect ability of "other side" to accept uncomfortable #TRUTH
3. So #POTUS needed to generate bullet-proof evidence of involvement by #DOJ/#FBI in the #Treason of the #Cabal/#DeepState...in part b/c they themselves could block/prevent the #TRUTH
...and in part b/c they had tried to destroy much of the evidence.
