IDENTIFYING FOREIGN ELECTION-INTERFERING TROLLS

(Thread)

Well, it's time for a refresher on the characteristics of troll accounts, as they are out in full force trying to influence the American electorate.

Remember: we are under attack.
This is an attack on America.

1/
IDENTIFYING FOREIGN ELECTION-INTERFERING TROLLS

First and foremost, ask "What is this account's messaging trying to achieve?"

Enemies of the United States want Trump re-elected and America weak. Foreign agitprop trolls want opposition to him diverted, dulled, and diluted.

2/
IDENTIFYING FOREIGN ELECTION-INTERFERING TROLLS

Foreign trolls want to keep you from voting in the general election.

You will see them criticize Democratic front-runners. They will try to get you to become disillusioned. They REALLY don't want you to #VoteBlueNoMatterWho.

Black Voters are done being your scapegoats.

For two cycles, Dems have been putting all energies into luring back a few of the Whites that fled to the GOP.

Even now y'all lament Obama to Trump voters and push candidates you believe could win Whites back.

You're fucking up.
We can SEE you.

We understand your cynical approach.

We see how you listen with half a ear.

We hear the complaints about black turnout decreasing.

We hear you now castigating us for "bringing up race" or calling us "angry" or "hateful" if we don't "go along to get along."
Somehow it's gone from "Vote Like Black Women!"

to

"Troll Black Women into Voting for White Women!"

And white women seem to be building a consensus around the idea that Black Women are The Problem.

We are especially problematic when we make demands of Liz Warren.

What the Democratic party and Biden don't understand is that when pro-fracking, union-busting, for-profit insurance-loving billionaires stand up at fancy fundraisers and proclaim their role as gatekeepers for the party, it's not the candidates they disdain who end up looking bad.
Even on optics alone, it's a horrible look for Biden to have billionaires who made a killing during the 2008 crash give interviews while sipping champagne at his fundraiser talking about how much they prefer him to Warren or Bernie. This should go without saying. Welp, oh well...
From the Trump tax cuts to the wall street bailouts and beyond, the massive transfers of wealth to richest keep happening in plain sight while people suffer. And I truly believe that most politicians are underestimating people's awareness and anger at their own political peril...

What bothers me the most about #VoteBlueNoMatterWho is how blatently lazy it is. People are genuinely fatigued by the relentless corruption that we are powerless to put in check...I get it....but sweeping dirt under the carpet in the name of unity just puts off the inevitable
For example...a typical #VoteBlueNoMatterWho convo

Voter A: my candidate is the best choice for nom

Voter B: I have a problem with your candidate.

Voter A: will you vote blue if they win?

Voter B: we need to talk about why they're not the best choice.

Voter A: UNITY!
Meanwhile, the GOP is busy planning how to exploit every single exposed, unvetted issue to weaken the impact of our offense.
...And we have the offense right now, but the three oldest, whitest candidates are STILL on the defense for their own foolishness.

EVEN CONSUMMATE VICTORY IN THE BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF AMERICA WON'T END THE WAR
There is a terrible truth lurking behind Donald Trump that is far more important than 2020. We've dared not whisper this truth because it's more terrifying than anything we can currently comprehend.
1/ What is this wretched, unspeakable truth? Quite simply, that all of human civilization itself experienced *astoundingly good fortune* that DONALD J. TRUMP (of all people!) was elected head of state and supreme commander of Earth's greatest military superpower.

Seriously.
2/ Donald Trump is a bad man, and he must lose in 2020. No sane person would disagree with this. But his mere defeat is not the end of this war, not by a long shot. Without a supportive Congress, a President is essentially powerless to advance legislation on their own.

Why you shouldn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2020:

1. He doesn’t care about you, your family, or your friends.
2. He treats women horribly.
3. His VP hates every LGBTQ member and wants to strip their rights away.
4. He’s racist.
5. He hates Muslims.
....
....
6. There is footage of him bragging about grabbing women’s genitals.
7. His administration is so corrupt.
8. He’s consistently firing people in his administration.
9. He’s called Neo-Nazis “fine people.”
10. He mocked a disabled reporter.
.....
...
11. He called an African American woman a “Dog.”
12. He’s horrible towards veterans (McCain).
13. He’s bullied hundreds to thousands of people.
14. He‘s encouraged his supporters to beat up protesters.
15. He will raise your taxes.
16. He only cares about $$$.

THE MUELLER REPORT OF THE OBAMA ERA
White men have enjoyed an era of unparalleled privilege in our country since it was founded. This is why it will take a white man of our own to finally end it.
1/ There is a darkness inside of us as Americans that Donald Trump has exploited to great effect. It won't be enough to send our strongest or smartest champion into battle against this monster if we're not fully aware of every aspect of this nightmare we're trying to escape.
2/ The right president for this moment is the one that provides the clearest contrast between Trump and themselves. A good leader sets the example, and doesn’t need to brag about his achievements and constantly inflate his own perception of himself.

In plain sight, the fossil fuel industry, the for-profit healthcare industry, the NRA, big pharma, and plenty others are negotiating with your elected officials over how much your life is worth. And too many ppl are ok with being sold out as long as it's by politicians they like.
You should want politicians to get an "F rating" from ANY industry that seeks to profit at the cost of people's lives, not just the NRA, because politicians can either prioritize CEOs' bonuses or they can prioritize the greater good, but they can't do both.
You can't keep treating differences in policy as genuine disagreements when they boil down to who's accepting the most money to help the fewest people. If people only care about accountability for their political opponents, accountability becomes just another way to score points.

1/ @SpeakerPelosi, constructive and divisive criticisms, congressional oversight, executive power and it's abuse.

Firstly, I wish to make clear that this opinion is neither pro nor anti-Nancy Pelosi. It's meant to be a constructive criticism and to promote healthy dialogue.
2/@SpeakerPelosi is the most powerful Democrat in the House, is second in line for the presidency behind the VP, and provides direction for the entire caucus. However, this does not mean she makes absolute decisions, or has absolute power over the @DNC and @HouseDemocrats. She
3/ does not rule with an iron fist. Also, she is acutely aware of the frustration within the Democratic Party, both in the House and amongst WeThePeople.

Which brings us first to IMPEACHMENT.

Reviewing the impeachment process, the House vote to impeach is a vote to indict only.

THREAD:
Someone asked "Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?"

Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England, wrote this magnificent response:
(2)
"A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility,
no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable,

WHY JOE BIDEN IS THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE WE DESERVE
1/110 So this may be controversial to say on Twitter, but I fully support @JoeBiden for President. @BarackObama is the living embodiment of all that is good in us as Americans, and he trusted Joe to carry on his vision of a better world for all of us. But it's more than that.
2/ Joe Biden was not just another useless VP during a typical President’s term. He and Barack were best friends, and Barack frequently leaned on Joe’s expertise to make himself a better leader for us.

Thread regarding #Sanders2020

1. Folks think Bernie was selfish for running in '16. I'm NOT one of them. I think he knew the American people weren't going to vote for HRC, & understood clearly the threat that Trump was to this country & the world; & wanted to inspire us.
2. For 4 decades Bernie's message has been consistent. He has ALWAYS been #ForThePeople. He has NEVER sold out. Is he perfect? No, there is no perfect human being, but he's definitely the best we have in the field without question.
3. I think Bernie looked at his options & did an unselfish thing. I think it's why the 2016 campaign struggled. This time around I am prouder than ever to support his campaign & actually volunteering. I don't know how safe our elections are, if they'll cheat, but I have to try.

@ForeverLogical Good question, logical person. I'm away but will RT it to remind myself to ponder on this.
@ForeverLogical 1/ Ok, I tweeted that on my phone. Probably the 2nd time I did it in my life (I hate phones and never thumb type but I was looking for tornado information away from home). I think we are all realizing now that what we thought was obvious was only logical.
@ForeverLogical 2/ Let me explain what I mean:
A - an unqualified psychopath was elected POTUS by a combination of unlikely factors
B - that is an aberration and spoils the world order
===
D => there will be a strong reaction contrary to that

Trump and his MAGA followers like to call themselves "patriots" but in fact, this "president" and his followers do not love the United States of America, instead, they love their distorted and hateful vision of what they think it should be.
In Trump's America, there is no American Dream, the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to ALL Americans, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. MAGA's vision includes only White Conservative Christians full of hate, anger, fear, and ugliness.
Trump fuels his base, feeding their fears, legitimizing their distortions of what it means to be American. He disparages Syrians, Muslims, Immigrants, People of Color, Women, The LQBTQ community, & incites violence against them. The GOP enable and encourage him on this mission.

#TuesdayThoughts
We must all commit to #VoteBlueNoMatterWho in 2020 to stop Trumpism & end the damage being done to our country, the world, & our system of government.

This commitment does not mean not vetting candidates or being like the GOP. #TuesdayMotivation THREAD 1/10
Every Democratic candidate should be able to beat Trump at the polls.

But, let's get something else straight. Republicans don't win elections because of their high moral character. Republicans don't win elections because of their fiscal or economic expertise. 2/10
CLEARLY, Republicans don't win elections because of their adherence to the Constitution or their unwavering love for the United States.

Republicans win elections because they'll coalesce around any piece of anything that places an "R" in front of its name. #VoteThemOut 3/10

SCOTUS, you absolute fücking fücks. Roberts, are you fücking proud of yourself? Does THIS look like it maybe is "approaching the 'pervasive,' 'flagrant,' 'widespread,' and 'rampant' discrimination" of the farking states the #VotingRights Act was protecting against?

#RobertsSucks
It would take me a month of Sundays just to list all the discriminatory voting laws passed by states that weren't allowed to pass such laws without express permission, when section 4(b) of the VRA was still law of the land.
@ifindkarma @HriSherryb @hr_indivisible @votolatino @connectvotedots @repjohnlewis @axidentaliberal @DemocracyStorm @TheDemCoalition @SaysHummingbird Do you know what states put forward discriminatory laws THE VERY DAY SCOTUS' execrable Chief Justice John Roberts decided that the success of the VRA meant it was no longer needed for these states?

Texas, Mississippi and, you guessed it, Florida.

@chillibeanboy I am torn between Warren, Harris, Biden, Buttegieg.
Warren: Policies
Harris: Intelligence/Fierce
Biden: Experience/ Foreign policy chops (relationship with every world leader)/COMPASSION
Buttegieg: Intelligence/Spirituality/ Representation
Biden/Harris ticket!
Or Warren/Booker
@chillibeanboy `\_(··)_/´
I can't decide this early-after the 1st Debate, the choices will narrow bc it will separate the wheat from the chaff.
As awesome as the field is, each one has their own baggage.
The ones who "hang a lantern on their issues "will prevail.
#VoteBlueNoMatterWho is nominee
@chillibeanboy Trump/GOP obviously see Biden, Warren, & Buttegieg as the biggest threats based on his Tweets & attacks.
Watch what they DO, not what they SAY.
We must run on Healthcare, Wages/Inequality, Foreig Gun Safety, & Climate Change

I'm probably going to get attacked for this...but I hope we can have a healthy debate and not a typical all-or-nothing battle.

All that matters in this race is beating Trump.

Yes, we must make progress in terms of society, economy, and equality.

BUT...they must be able to WIN.
It's easy to see this buffet of 20 candidates and get carried away with what we could be...without considering electability...AND what's at stake.

The winner of the primary should be the best of both worlds. Progress and electability.

Otherwise, we're handing Trump another win.
Keep an open mind. Fall in love. But don't be blinded by that love. We must be forward looking...but ALWAYS strategic.

If we choose the purest or most dreamy candidate...great, you can feel good having done that.

But it means nothing if they lose. Our democracy is on the line.

Why on earth do Republicans demonize two hardworking, indispensible, valued groups of Americans: teachers and nurses? @FoxNews has demonized public school teachers for years, and now Maureen Walsh has to be told #nursesdontplaycards. I have some
#SaturdayThoughts:
First, $$$. Both teachers and nurses make pretty good livings (for teachers, this is not as true in red states). Both are highly unionized professions. They both require extensive and ongoing education and training (except in red states with private schools lowering standards)...
...$$$ It's no secret that the GOP mission is to destroy public education as we know it. Private profiteers see those millions going to the education pot and want to get their hands on it. Ideologues want to indoctrinate kids with their religion and politics on the public dime...

I’m going to provide a thread on Dems who want to be President. I’m going to share a link to a site that shows their voting record. The proof is in the pudding- or the votes in this case. You decide who should get the nod. #ThursdayThoughts
In no particular order. Here we go. Why not start with our most recent entry into the Dem race.

1/ Day 30 of Trump's shutdown: Gov't workers are suffering. Trump's winning by blaming Dems for not negotiating. BuzzFeed nailed Trump for directing Cohen in illegal acts. Then Mueller made his first mistake & now both have egg on their faces. Trump wins. Enough! Resisters Unite!
