#AmericaFirstNazis cry "They keep calling us racist".

And then...

Matt Gaetz: you & your friends ARE in fact #WhiteNationalist #WhiteSupremacist wannabe Nazis.
All you're missing is the white hood.
Matt Gaetz retweets #propaganda laced bullshit.

Matt Gaetz is on the Armed Services Committee despite never having served and while being investigated for child sex-trafficking and corruption and election fraud pertaining a shill candidate.
None of those things scream Patriot.
Gaetz, Fucker Carlson and Hannity have done what to sacrifice for Americans? What service do they actually provide to this nation?

I argue NONE. In fact they service a disservice that endangers democracy and all of Americans, even the #WhiteSupremacistExtremists they pander to.

Two big developments to think about together:

👉 Facebook @OversightBoard upholding Trump suspension

👉 NEW: Biden admin joining #ChristchurchCall to address violent extremist content

#Christchurch @GIFCT_official @techvsterrorism @francediplo_EN @GNET_research

<thread>
2. The Biden action is a significant turn away from Trump-era policy.

In March 2019, a #WhiteSupremacist terrorist live streamed his massacre of people at two mosques in New Zealand.

These dozens of democracies 👇 joined the call to action.

The Trump administration refused.
3. Both the FB Oversight Board and Biden Christchurch actions are based on #HumanRights law framing the decision.

On one hand: Freedom of expression (and right to receive information).

On other hand: Public safety, equality, non-discrimination, other rights (eg voting rights).

Let's not forget that #TheFormerGuy put a known #WhiteNationalist who was fired from the WH for his above acceptable level of #WhiteSupremacist ideology in charge of Holocaust Memorials. #MattGaetz hired him as speechwriter. #DarrenBeattie ➡️
#DarrenBeattie who thinks it's "beautiful" to thwart science mitigation measures with a #NEONAZI protest in Berlin.
This guy was put in charge of the f*cking Holocaust Memorials!
He is #MattGaetz's speechwriter. #MattGaetzDidSomethingWrong #WhiteNationalist Image

Examination of the 3%er #militia movement by @DTAnalytics & Alejandro Beutel. A summary 🧵

While most attention has been on #whitesupremacist angle of the far right, this piece looks at anti-Islamic sentiment as the glue that binds much of the movement

"...anti-Muslim hate is one of the few issues that brings together otherwise disparate and fractious elements of the far-right, both within and beyond national borders."
This chart from @jjmacnab in 2018 is great. Compare/contrast w/@selectedwisdom's graphic (next). They aren't looking at the exact same thing but useful both in and of themselves as well as if you're thinking about how to use graphics to depict subjects w/lots of fuzzy borders

The CPAC 2021 stage is in the shape of an Odal rune, used by Nazi Germany.

These #WhiteSupremacist extremists are anti-democracy and anti anyone who doesn't agree with them.

It's a mistake to dismiss them as "crazy". This is CPAC. Not a small fringe group.

(short thread)
In Nazi Germany, this rune symbolized "blood and soil".

Here's the significance of the "blood and soil" phrase to current-day white supremacist groups.

1/9 In a little more than a month, I'll start looking for another place to live for a few reasons. One place I know I won't be looking is in @Pittsburgh. The roads aren't maintained and don't get plowed, firefighters are begging on the streets.
2/9 But the mayor, @BillPeduto, yammers about bicycles (@Pittsburgh is generally much too hilly for bicycling and I see very few people even on the electric bicycles that are available all around Oakland) and his corporate connections.
3/9 @BillPeduto is more worried about moving the Zone 5 #WhiteSupremacist (@PghPolice) headquarters back into the 'hood.

Y’all need to read this entire article! The video itself is insane! He shows pics of Dem leaders “causing wars” & being in control for decades but completely ignores fact #rethuglicans started every war EVER! & #moscowmitch has bn in Senate for 30 yrs! justsecurity.org/74504/movie-at…
2/The video begins with Trump’s eyes in the shadow, & its 2nd frame focuses the audience on the Capitol building – America’s Reichstag, where the decisions being denounced by the rally’s organizers were being made that day. The third frame of the video is the Hollywood sign in LA
3/This image immediately directs attn of an audience attuned to an American fascist ideology to the supposedly elite class of Jews who, according to this ideology, control Hollywood. Appearance of the Hollywood sign makes no other sense in context of a short video abt an election

The #WarOnWhiteness is a #WhiteSupremacist "conspiracy theory", which opposes social & racial justice, many would argue, & it does seem absurd that White elites would wage war on their OWN race, but I have an explanation for this madness.
Madness is what it is, & it will destroy Western civilisation itself (& not just Whites, but much of humanity & of our planet's biodiversity) if allowed to continue.

It is explicable in the very nature of civilisation itself & the states which comprise it.

Heeft u nog meegekregen hoe de #MarchForTrump verliep?
Verrassing: de betogers waren vreedzaam en zongen het volkslied.🇺🇸
Maar: volgens onze immer neutrale @NOS ‘braken aan het eind van de dag gevechten uit.’
Die #Trumpsupporters toch.😱
Of niet?🤔

Oeps… Nog eentje.

#BigBrotherBritain

George Orwell based his novel, 1984, on 1930s fascism & communism, projecting them onto a future Britain & unwittingly making it difficult for us to recognise how #BigBrother would manifest himself in liberal democracies like our own.
Manifest himself he does, but not as in 1984. Instead, we are left many freedoms, while at the same time being enslaved - rich & poor alike - to BigB & #TheMatrix of state & capital. As in the film, most are completely unaware of it, & the well-served have no reason to become so.
But enslaved we are, to a system that is inherently unjust, inhumane, & unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth.

Thus enslaved, our leaders have been unable to initiate the #SustainabilityRevolution on which our very survival depends.

.@johnrobertsFox: You, #FoxNews + the rest of the #FakeNewsMedia are all up in arms over #ProudBoys and #PresidentTrump non-denunciation denunciation of the supposed #WhiteSupremacist group.

Why don't you act like a journalist learn something about them, and do some reporting?

Former FBI @RepBrianFitz is a #TrumpEnabler & part of the "militant wing of the Republican Party" who attracted #ProudBoys to rally outside his #PA01 office last Dec.

He gifted #WhiteNationalists with an official letter to BillBarr/DoJ in 2019 demanding a crackdown on antifa.
Top Trump/@RepBrianFitz donor 💰 Jim Worthington & Dean Malik, along with Proud Boy Zach (+ other unnamed Proud Boys) were all together at the proTrump counter-protest to impeachment outside Fitzpatrick's #PA01 office, Dec 2019.

1) What about the #BoogalooBois who were documented by police & other sources as planning to move in on the #GeorgeFloyd peaceful demonstrations to forment violence, riots & property damage. See my time line around Memorial day.
2) What about the #UmbrellaMan in #Minneapolis who likely came in on #BoogalooBois general call for the #GeorgeFloyd protests, and #BrokeTheFirstWindows? He was later identified and found to be affiliated with a #WhiteSupremacist group.
3) What abt similar episodes of agents provocateur in both #Denver & #Atlanta, recorded on video & on my timeline? White outsiders to peaceful demonstrations did violent window smashing (one at @CNN HQ) & triggered violence in previously peaceful demonstrations? Then they split.

Today, as the #Christchurch attacker faces sentencing in New Zealand, CfMM has launched a groundbreaking report, "How The British Media Reports Terrorism."

Here's a thread of some of our key findings.

Full report available on our website: cfmm.org.uk/resources/publ…
Reporting of attacks is inconsistent, depending on who the perpetrator is, with white, non-Muslim perpetrators less likely to be referred to as #terrorists.
Words identifying #Muslims or #Islam are more frequently placed alongside “terror”, “terrorist”, “terrorism”, or “terrorist(s)” in comparison with the most frequent identifiers of #farright or #WhiteSupremacist terrorism.

Meet Alin Nagy of #Phoenix #Arizona. Real Estate Agent, small business guy, and member of the #WhiteSupremacist @Facebook group "It's ok to be white"
Members of the group bristle at the idea that their group is being described as white supremacist, but we don't know how else to describe what we see here...
Alin is big into anti-semitism as in the wrong people won WW2 big into anti-semitism.

So the question now is why would this evil god, White Supremacy, allow someone to live so well? He's not starving, barefoot somewhere. These are millionaires who rub elbows with famous people every single day. In an evil system, there has to be something odd about this, right? (1
The loudest yelpers about a system of white supremacy are people benefitting from the system. Academicians, athletes, media, entertainers...multimillionaires near the seats of power.
And they all live well.
Why is #WhiteSupremacy taking such good care of them? (2)
Why is Jemele Hill making more money talking about #WhiteSupremacy than she did at ESPN?
Why is Colin Kaepernick making more money being an activist than a football player?
So white supremacy, as a system/God-like being, is rewarding those who speak out against it? Bizarre (3)

Not all cops are murderers.
Not all Republicans are racist.
Not all protesters are rioters.
Not all liberals are socialists.
Not all anti-Trumpers are Democrats.
Not all business owners are capitalists.
Not all politicians are corrupt.
Not all media are fake news.

1/
Not all Antifa are violent.
Not all rioters are black.
Not all black people are Democrats.
Not all LEO's are fascist.
Not all extremists are leftists.

Not all of any group are represented by one of any group.

But all white supremacists support Trump.

2/
In a world where black and white are anything but, there always seems to be this one curious underlying universal truth.

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price

.@CHIRLA was one of many #immigrant/#refugee activist groups that I invited to participate in the @Vote_CNP conference last year in Santa Monica. I was trying to organize a participate in a round-table about what an effective and humane #immigration system would look like.
No organization local to L.A. responded with as much as a polite regret.
It is possible that an immigrant/refugee rights activist could make the CIM in to any kind of nefarious organization if they don't learn about what we are from our own writing and mouths. Chief among those myths is that the CIM is #whitesupremacist.

Russian Imperialist Movement [RIM] embraces designation as terrorist organization

mysanantonio.com/news/article/R…
When the State Department designated a Russian white-supremacist group, RIM, as a terrorist entity, some supporters saw it as an honor, almost like a coming-of-age moment.

It was affirming for RIM leader Stanislav Vorobyov. "A reward," he called it.
The terrorist designation marks a U.S. shot across the bow on Russian authorities' relative tolerance of RIM and an associated paramilitary training operation outside St. Petersburg.

QUESTION: The @StateDept has designated "the Russian Imperial Movement" as global #terrorists. This is unprecedented. We asked Scott Stewart @stick631 VP of Tactical Intelligence @Stratfor why is this important? Follow this thread for the answer. Image
ANSWER: "The designation of the RIM will mark the first time it has been applied to a #whitesupremacist group.
While this move does have an important symbolic meaning by demonstrating that the #TrumpAdministration is focused on mitigating the white supremacist threat,
it will also have a significant practical impact. First, designating a group as a foreign terrorist organization allows the government to charge those who attend training, spread propaganda or provide financial support to the group under statutes of material support of a...

1/ #ExtinctionRebellion have been dealing with online backlash after the #XREastMidlands twitter account tweeted a photo of an extinction rebellion sign which stated “Corona is the cure, humans are the disease”. Below you can see the original tweet.
2/ Following this the official #ExtinctionRebellion twitter account responded by disowning themselves and the #ExtinctionRebellionUK from East Midlands XR account. They left on the advisement that they were investigating the account.
You only have to go to #XREastMidlands twitter account to see the list of accounts that follow them. Check out photo three, none other than the official #ExtinctionRebellion page. The very page who stated that the account was a fake.
