The #Gandhi statue in #WashingtonDC was apparently vandalized today by #BLM/#GeorgeFloyd protestors. Reportedly, they spray-painted "racist" on the statue's base. Could it be because Gandhi wrote that Indians are "undoubtedly infinitely superior to the Kaffirs"? #RacistGandhi Image
For an in-depth conversation about Gandhi's racism, read this interview by @thecaravanindia with Dr. Obadele Kambon, the professor at University of Ghana who was instrumental in the removal of a Gandhi statue from his campus.…
Here’s a video I produced with @OFMIorg featuring @jadafromnola about how #Gandhi hated being identified w/blacks, worked 4 racial segregation in pre-apartheid South Africa, & wanted to preserve the purity of the races. #RacistGandhi

If you aren't following a developing situation out of Washington, D.C.: roughly 40 protesters were invited into a private home to prevent police from roughing them up. This put the protesters in compliance with D.C. curfew law.

In response, police teargassed the private home.
Police have surrounded the #WashingtonDC home, and have attempted to gain entry by threatening the homeowner, claiming COVID-19 gives them authority to enter, and ultimately teargassing the entire place.

Activists on the ground are livestreaming.
Right-wing outlets are using this standoff to create hysteria, claiming these protesters are violently breaking into homes.

Even more concerning, police are echoing that rhetoric even though the homeowner has repeatedly said these protesters were invited.

People who want to trash our show tell me that I am not doing enough to be critical of #Trudeau. Many who want me to condemn him, want me to praise #Trump Once upon a time I would ask "What's wrong with these people?" But I don't have to ask any more.
Forced myself to watch an hour of @FoxNews prime time the other night, and I swear to God, I wanted to go for some sort of medical test afterwards - sickest trash I've ever seen on a news station. Person in #WashingtonDC who I find most difficult to watch is not the President.
It's the Vice President. Watching someone stimulate themselves by being submissive, sycophantic and obsequious toward authority, disgusts me like few other behaviors. #MikePence disgusts me.

#USA #NorthKorea #WashingtonDC #KimJongUn #김정은

President Donald Trump noted that he knew exactly what was happening with North Korea's chairman Kim Jong-un in his State of Health.
"I know what's going on," President Trump said after being asked about Chairman Kim's status at an event held at the White House on the 30th (local time). But President Trump said, "I can't talk about Kim Jong-un right now." I just want everything to be fine. "
President Trump also emphasized, "I know the situation very well." The emphasis was placed on the fact that the US intelligence agency has accurate information regarding the outflow of reports on Kim's health ideals. Nevertheless, the contents were asked.

It's hard to capture the absence of activity. How do you show something that is missing? These wonderful @reuters pictures do just that.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

In 85 days, ~1 million people have fled their homes in #Idlib, #Syria.

60% are kids & 20% women.

They're now homeless, hemmed onto a shut #Turkey border. There are no tents left & little food. Kids are freezing to death.

Where the Hell is the world's attention? WAKE UP.
#pt: The #Idlib crisis is unprecedented, BUT not just for #Syria - this is the biggest humanitarian crisis in modern history AND it happened rapidly, in 2-3 months.

This isn't just "someone else's problem," it's a global one. If left untouched, the consequences WILL be global.
#pt: 1 million people, including 600,000 kids, with the clothes on their back & some blankets, if they're lucky. In the winter.

The @UN has run out of cross-border funds & #Syria is blocking supplies from elsewhere.

Meanwhile, #Russia is flattening hospitals, schools & markets.

In #Pakistan, Govt & pundits shouldn't make too much of #Trump appearance at #HowdyModi. It's a circus for #Indian PM, endorsing @realDonaldTrump for a 2nd term while the pro-#India lobby in DC works with anti-#Trump base, & hoping to keep him away from #Kashmir if possible @AQpk
PM #Modi has this in mind while trying to appease #Trump at #HowdyModi: #American restrictions on I.T. visa abuse by #Indian immigrants (aka 'Skilled Immig'), ending #India oil imports from #Iran, jeopardizing #Indian interests in #Afghanistan, & Trump rehabilitating #Pakistan
