@GeneralClark I know how @Ukraine is standing their ground & pushing Russia back. We did it, #Virginia & 12 other British colonies fought & defeated the greatest military in the world. It took 8 years. Finally the French fleet bottled up Chesapeake Bay & Cornwallis surrendered.
In between however, many dark moments. Rode horses or marched, weapons were not so lethal. No threat of Armageddon. But we had help from France, our oldest ally, Poles who fought 4 freedom from Russia, Pulaski; Kovats(Hungarian),Von Steuben. For freedom, a new enlightenment idea.
Although there were no doomsday weapons then, bottling up the Chesapeake Bay, preventing British ships from getting reinforcements to Cornwallis was very much akin to closing the sky. The French closed the seas. @GeneralClark

Self-organized student actions, protests + walkouts are continuing non-stop throughout the United States against the passage of a variety of authoritarian anti-LGBTQ+ bills. A thread on recent actions. #TDOV #DontSayGay #LGBTQ
While largely ignored in the media, there's been a massive wave of walkouts, protests, and self-organized student actions over the past month.
Last Tuesday, "Disney employees and their allies staged a walkout from various departments and products to protest the company’s donations to the Republican legislators behind Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill."…

🚨🚨🚨I’m thrilled to release today a new mini docu-series about the power of symbols, memory, and story through an exploration of Monument Ave. in Richmond, VA.

New episodes drop every day, so be sure to check back for more.

Here’s the first one. Let me know what you think!
In part 2 of this mini docuseries we look at the Robert E. Lee monument and how such statues helped create a narrative of white supremacy in the Jim Crow era.
#History #CivilWar #Monuments
Monuments matter because they are symbols. Symbols matter because symbols tell stories. Stories matter because stories make us who we are.

Part 3 of this mini docuseries tackles why we must remove Confederate monuments.

@samshirazim @MandHF It’s harmful to US Congress candidates @RepSpanberger @RepElaineLuria @JenniferWexton are the greater need 4 Dems but McAuliffe only cares abt him, since he owes very big debt to some dangerous people, Hoffa the younger,whom TM visited fall 2019 in exchange 4 Dems delivering.
@samshirazim @MandHF @RepSpanberger @RepElaineLuria @JenniferWexton Long story, but Hoffa stepped down at McA request & has gotten zero that he was promised. These are people who always collect their debts.But only field of play McAuliffe has is VA & Vademocrats @VAHouseDems @VaSenateDems owe McA whose $100 MIL non-FEC compliant PAC elected them.
@samshirazim @MandHF @RepSpanberger @RepElaineLuria @JenniferWexton This is why I fight all the mob directed requests 1.drugs 2.gambling 3. Unions. Classic mob money laundering & union corruption. McAuliffe ties to Teamsters goes back 35+ yrs including ties to Hoffa. “Normal” Upstate NY & Dem union states from PhillyNJ NY NE but NOT #Virginia

Update #Ukraine .
Im Ăśberblick:
- OSCE-Beobachter verlassen den #Donbass ,
- einige ukr. Behörden werden in den Westen des Landes evakuiert,
- Selenski widerspricht wieder westlichen Invasionsprognosen,
- Vorfall zwischen russischer Marine und US-Atom-U-Boot.
Thread 👇
Die Erklärung von #Biden , wonach am Mittwoch die russische Invasion starten könnte, hat eine ganze Welle von Evakuierungen in der #Ukraine ausgelöst.
Weitere Länder riefen ihre Bürger zur Ausreise aus dem Land auf, darunter auch Deutschland.
Auch Botschaften werden evakuiert.
Zur Erinnerung.
US-Präsident #Biden erklärte seinen europäischen Verbündeten, dass die russische Invasion am Mittwoch, den 16. Februar starten könnte.
Die Erkenntnis basiere auf "US-Geheimdienstinformationen".

@MargaretHoover I'm a great fan of you & @JohnAvlon, but you should not buy the attack ads of losing Dem candidates. I'm a Democrat. Here are #facts on the ground in #Virginia CRT is sold as something it is not. #FactsMatter It is pernicious, destructive,toxic, and more. @Acosta
#CancelCulture attacks #Mathematics Opponents of CRT are NOT all right wing. The people who elected @GlennYoungkin were Biden voters, Asian parents, black parents who want better schools for their children. Asians are being hurt. Below: CA lowers standards…
@MargaretHoover @JohnAvlon @Acosta @CondoleezzaRice articulates the issue best. But there is a disturbing expansion of a surveillance state. I don't see masks or vax as that, but BBB contained bank surveillance, #MerrickGarland actions described below,…

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

If you’re in the DC area and see Penske, UHaul, or similar trucks that aren’t filled with freight, take out your camera and start filming. That’s how the Patriot Front typically gets in and out of the city. They’re likely staying at a private residence in nearby rural/suburbs.
Moving trucks will be noticeable because they’ll be staged together or traveling in a convoy. The trucks, if moving, are likely to have dozens of men inside at the moment. If @DCPoliceDept pulls them over — unmask to identify members of the nation’s most active hate group.
If you live in #DC, #Maryland or #Virginia, you should be calling on your governor to put state troopers on alert, and immediately begin investigations to find out where the Patriot Front is traveling to and from. This hate group’s objective is genocide. Members live near you.

A Gloucester County #Virginia mother said it only took a matter of days for her once healthy 8-year-old girl Ashlyn South to be rushed by ambulance to a Norfolk emergency room due to multi-system inflammatory syndrome due to COVID. #TheySurvivedCovid…
"On September 28, she woke up that morning with an upset stomach. Just a tummy ache," Andrea said.

That stomachache would progress to a 103-degree fever, rash and sore throat. A strep throat test came back negative.
"When we took her vitals is when we realized that we actually had a bigger problem," said Andrea. "Her blood pressure was critically low."

A blood test found she had the antibodies for COVID, which doctors believe she had contracted six weeks prior. They diagnosed her with MIS-C
