Important THREAD on UK’s Black woman MP @HackneyAbbott’s letter to @theobserver/@guardian and White Britain unleashing opportunistic attacks on the MP.
Buckle up🧵
#DianeAbbott #Racism #Antisemitism #WhiteSupremacy #WhitePrivilege #BlackLivesMatter #HierarchyOfRacism #CRT British Black MP Diane Abbo...
White British establishment has been way too racist and harsh towards #DianeAbbott (“DA”) among #BlackWomen—not denying many of their points—compared to others. Issues of DA erasing #GTR or #Holocaust memories or not—not denying the importance of it—is a separate issue than… 2/ Tweet from Siobhan Miller (...
…the main topic pointed out in the subject of the letter: White #HierarchyOfRacism that exists to date. Having worked as a London-based banker who was involved with diversity, I’ve seen Black was 9x more, Muslims up to 8x more discriminated at institutional & security levels…3/

On Feb 27, we will take to the streets in 🇩🇪 and in front of German embassies worldwide!
This day marks the 70th anniversary of the debt cancellation 🇩🇪 received after #WW2 in the #LondonAgreement.
Here is a little history lesson that you may not have heard in school:
Post-war 🇩🇪 was a heavily indebted country:
there was pre-war debt, consisting of outstanding reparation payments from WW1 & private debts of German banks & companies (standstill debt), the amount of the debt made by the Nazi Government (Konversionskasse) and post-war debt👇[2/18
Bear in mind that the #DeNazification of 🇩🇪 was never properly done: major powerful figures from the Third Reich remained in influential political & economic positions after the war, and were able to build their businesses also due to the outcome of the #LondonAgreement.👇[3/18]

#Populism Poses Dangers to Democracy. It Does the Same to Christian Witness. How polarizing narratives corrupt our hearts and redefine our faith.…
"The plot of the populist story is simple, unchanging, and melodramatic: Life consists of a perpetual struggle between “common people” and the elites who exploit them. The former are noble, virtuous, and righteous;
the latter are corrupt, arrogant, and self-serving. The key to eradicating social ills and injustices lies in helping the people recognize their true enemies and mobilize to defeat them." ...What populist rhetoric adds to the mix is fear, outrage, and an all-consuming urgency.

For the record…

#NeoNazis and the Far Right Are On the March in #Ukraine | The Nation (2019)

#AzovBattalion #WhiteSupremacy…
“The DC establishment’s standard defense of Kiev is to point out that Ukraine’s far right has a smaller percentage of seats in the parliament than their counterparts in places like France.”
“That’s a spurious argument: What Ukraine’s far right lacks in polls numbers, it makes up for with things Marine Le Pen could only dream of—paramilitary units and free rein on the streets.”

I report violations of the #IndianArtsAndCraftsAct on #Etsy and #ebay. Thing is, some of the worst offenders belong to #FakeTribes that have managed to swing State recognition. The retailers, & the ⚪️s who buy from the #pretendian sellers, either don't understand, or don't care.
So when they display their "enrollment" info... look up the "tribe" they claim. If they even name it. Some just say "Cherokee" or worse, "Cherokee descent". Ask for the specific tribe and look it up. Some state-recognized are real, but many are not. #IndianArtsAndCraftsAct #Fraud
It's no coincidence that ⚪️ people give tons of money to other ⚪️people who are playing Indian and selling fake Native bling, regalia, even fake medicines. These #pretendians make way more money at this than real #Natives. Just read their reviews & see who writes them. #Racism

"#ALEC’s proposed Free Speech in Higher Education Act debated by members this week would ban public universities from using bias reporting systems to prevent or punish “offensive” or “unwanted” speech by students, faculty, staff, or guests."… #HigherEd Image
#ALEC’s FORUM Act "has passed in multiple states with the help of the hate group Alliance Defending Freedom, aims to address the manufactured free speech “crisis” being hyped by the Right, often by sending extremist provocateurs to speak at colleges and universities." #HigherEd Image
The real reason for the attack on libraries… This "has always been about keeping people uneducated and ignorant. Suppressing diverse ideas has always been the hallmark of conservatism, and free libraries stand in the way of their goal."

Republicans Want Teachers to Leave Public Education… Republicans are literally running a political platform on weakening teachers, schools and education because they need the poorly educated to make up their voting base.
1/ DeSantis, conservatives score more Florida school board wins Moms for Liberty endorsed 12 for Florida school board and donated to campaigns. The 1776 PAC, which opposes critical race theory in schools, endorsed 49 candidates throughout 21 counties.
2/ Parental rights have been a key battle cry for DeSantis who pushed Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, aka “Parental Rights in Education”.
Together with "School Choice" laws promoting charter schools, DeSantis is dictating what kids can learn, and where they can learn it. Image

Quick 🧵: Now that the anecdotes and the sciences have aligned to confirm that #WhiteSupremacy is ✨in fact✨ an #embodied experience,

I’ve been revisiting my own hesitancies around blindly trusting all-White, all-cisgendered male leadership teams of humanitarian organizations.
2/5 I’m reminded that it takes muscle memory— not mere thinking— to see issues of inequity when they pop up in systems.

When you’ve lived in a body that’s so rarely minoritized/ marginalized (i.e., White and cisgendered male), it’s easy and common for you to overlook inequity.
3/5 This is uncomfortable to hear, but it’s true.

We’re learning more and more that #WhiteSupremacy is not— at its core— a matter of ideas.

It’s a matter of the patterned responses to the “Other” that are embodied in folks’ core beliefs, emotions and knee-jerk social reactions.

Reading for today -- Online Hindutva as a global right-wing counterpublic.

Dr. Chopra argues that the Hindu Right, as a far right movements, follows a politics of grievance in understanding itself excluded from public life and creating its own ecosystem.…
So, if you're looking for a theory that helps explains how viral WhatsApp forwards, ill-informed tweets, and blatantly false ideas about Hindu texts and Indian history inform vicious right-wing sensibilities in Hindu nationalist circles -- This is your article.
Dr. Chopra notes parallels between Hindu supremacists and white supremacists--

Both espouse a Great Replacement Theory. Both embrace a "civilizational war" view. More recently, Hindu supremacists have borrowed the conspiracy idea of a "deep state" from other far right movements.

Imagine being born in a secular #democracy & agitating, organizing, & pursuing establishment of a #theocracy — claiming ‘persecution’ bc a majority want to keep Church & State separate. #USA #religiousliberty #Christian #Christianist #DefendDemocracy @americansunited @RNS
Clearly we don’t all agree on who the ‘us’ is in #USA, who belongs, who matters, who should vote, what I means to be, ‘an American.’…
#FirstAmendment to the #Constitution mandates that the #USA shall have no official religion.

Despite this, about 20% say the federal government should stop enforcing the separation of church and state a that the Constitution was inspired by God. #DefendDemocracy

Have you considered that members of the so-called #FreedomConvoy were and are not only #domesticterrorists who attempted to overthrow our duly elected govt, but that bonding together gave them the illusion of power & success as they are in essence members of a #rightwingcult?
Definition of pied piper. 1 : one that offers strong but delusive enticement; 2 : a leader who makes irresponsible promises; 3 : a charismatic person who attracts followers by using 1 & 2.
#JustaPiedPiper is recruiting new members to his #rightwingcult from the #FreedomConvoy
Cult groups are not limited to religious groups. All have leaders whose authority is respected and, in many cases, unquestioned. What brings them together is often perverse beliefs and in the case of the #honkers, the perversity is evidenced in their interpretation of freedom.

#OTD in 1868, approx. 300 (mostly) Black Republicans embarked on a 25 mile march from Albany, Georgia, to the town of Camilla. They were protesting the expulsion of 33 Black state congressmen (known as the Original 33). Armed white Democrats were waiting for them in Camilla.
The white mob was incensed by Georgia's new state constitution that was ratified in April of 1868. The new constitution granted Black men the right to vote and hold political office.
Many of the marchers were armed as well. When they reached Camilla the local sheriff, Mumford S. Poore, ordered them to put down their guns or face the wrath of the white mob. The marchers refused to back down and continued to the courthouse lawn to hold a political rally.

The Story of Race is a Story of Labor. In fact, most Europeans colonized North America for land and economic opportunities, not for religious freedom. There was no concept of race at that time. People identified by country of origin not by skin color. #WhiteSavior doc thread 🧵:
In 1676, enslaved Africans joined with European indentured servants in a large rebellion against the colonial government in Virginia. #WhiteSavior
Alarmed by the natural alliance between the indentured and enslaved, the ruling class passed a series of laws that segregated and permanently enslaved those of African descent, while also giving their European counterparts new rights and status. #WhiteSavior

Months ago, while we were tracing down rumors of arts funding being given to the RDDC, we learned about their plan to create a Business Improvement District in Downtown Rochester, NY #roc 🧵
It sounds innocuous right? A "Business Improvement District"? Kind of like FHA loans and the GI Bill. Sounds good but when they started, they didn't help everyone. (first saw @shane_wiegand at @540wmain's Gentrification Conference )
They provided the opportunities to create wealth to only the white population. While eventually the civil rights movement pushed them to include everyone, decades of a head start, and decades of disinvestment has led us to the major disparities in wealth we have today.

Wie geht ihr damit um, wenn Menschen in eurer Umgebung die Klimakrise & den planetary clusterfuck noch nicht begriffen haben?

Ich hab bis vor ein paar Monaten immer die Fakten runter gebetet. Inzwischen mach ich das gar nicht mehr. Hier meine Erfahrungen:
Wer es jetzt & hier nicht gecheckt hat, hat sehr wahrscheinlich keinen Mangel an Fakten, sondern steckt evtl in der Leugnung & Verdrängung. Es gibt den Begriff "implicatory denial", der eine Leugnung beschreibt, die sich nicht auf die Tatsachen selbst bezieht, sondern auf die
moralischen, psychischen, politischen & gesellschaftlichen Konsequenzen.

In fast allen Gesprächen, die ich führe, mit Familie, Kolleg:innen und in Aktionen auch einfach Passant:innen, basiert die Leugnung auf drei Lügen/Illusionen, die aufrecht erhalten werden müssen, um

Elon Musk is supporting the party that is opposed to:

📚 History
🌈 Equality
♀️ Reproductive Freedom
👩‍⚕️ Healthcare
⛽️ Lowering gas costs
💊 Lowering drug costs
🧓 Medicare
👵 Social Security
🌎 Climate Action
and even
🗳️ Democracy

Why does @elonmusk hate America?
Here's @elonmusk explaining that he will support the GOP despite the fact they are the party of "corporate evil" & "religious zealotry."

The only reasons he gave for abandoning women, minorities, democracy and the planet are his animosity toward "unions" & "trial lawyers."
Elon Musk wishes Americans were as easy to exploit as Chinese workers.

He hates that unions gave us:
- Weekends
- End of child labor
- 40-hour work week
- 8-hour work day
- Unemployment benefits
- Workers compensation
- Employer-based health coverage
- Family & Medical Leave Act

Natalia Narochnitskaya:

"È importante capire cos'è #Azov. Un malinteso comune è che questo sia un reggimento. E questo è assolutamente sbagliato, Azov non è affatto una formazione militare, ma piuttosto un movimento politico paramilitare dell'#Ucraina.

#Azov è guidato dall'SNA, un'assemblea social-nazionalista (organizzazione politica). I nomi sono cambiati, ma l'essenza rimane la stessa: è un'organizzazione #neonazista di Kharkov, attorno alla quale si è formato l'intero attuale movimento Azov.

È importante capire chiaramente che non sono nazionalisti ucraini, ma #neonazisti, sostenitori della #WhiteSupremacy. Un movimento analogo all'NSDAP (gli stessi nazisti del 1920-45).
Sotto l'SNA c'è un movimento politico di massa: il #NationalKorp.

🚫No, #Conservatism does NOT equal #WhiteSupremacy 🚫 And here’s proof…

Over the last few days, the #MSM has been conflating conservatives and white supremacists as if they are one in the same. This thread will detail WHY and HOW that is simply untrue…

🪡 👀 ⬇️

Since the #BuffaloMassacre major media outlets and certain journalist have been tirelessly attempting to tie words from the killer back to those of @TuckerCarlson 📢

The problem is these reports deliberately take words out of context, while ADDING context to imply racism…

First, a defense is only necessary following an attack 💥 Not-so-clever leftists tend to forget they are the ones fledging the assault

Next, quoting @TuckerCarlson’s words, the author attempts to ADD context, turning reference to political-affiliation in a racial attack…
