Ich habe diese Woche in Lausanne den Prozess gegen 6 Polizisten verfolgt, die im Februar 2018 #MikeBenPeter überfielen, traten, pfefferten und auf ihn knieten bis er einen Herzinfarkt erlitt und starb. Und ich muss sagen: Dieser Prozess ist ein Skandal. Warum? Ein kleiner 🧵.
1-Der Staatsanwalt müsste ermitteln, aber er verweigert quasi die Arbeit: 5 Jahre dauerte die Untersuchung. Ergebnis: minimal. Die beschuldigten Polizisten, die #MikeBenPeter getötet haben sollen, wurden nur 2mal einvernommen – Anfang u Mitte März 2018. Danach nie wieder.
2-Der Staatsanwalt suchte keine Zeug:innen und die, die sich selbst meldeten, interessierten ihn nicht. Auch vor Gericht nicht. Er ist den Anwält:innen der Polizisten näher als dem Privatkläger der Opferfamilie. Er fragt so gut wie nichts, und wenn, dann ungenau.

You know how when you take a wrong turn, you need to go back and take the other turn?

I've decided I'm doing that with Critical Race Theory--I'm going back to before all the CRT hysteria and alarmism, back before the Anti-CRT Industry® took off, back before the book bans

Back to 2016, when @drjjwilliams @TheWitnessBCC could say:

"evangelicals should be quick to listen and slow to speak on race when they do not understand the issues.

White supremacy and racism are complicated issues... such as...critical race theory..."… Image
2016, when @drjjwilliams @TheWitnessBCC could make basic observations:

"Contrary to certain evangelical Christians, critical race theorists and social scientists argue that racism is systemic, and is deeply ingrained in the structural fabric of the U.S"… ImageImage

Britain’s equality watchdog, the Equality & Human Rights Commission (#EHRC), is supposed to be independent.

This #THREAD will show it isn't.

It's been “captured” politically & made a “tool of the culture wars”, with an agenda “based on what is useful to the Conservative Govt”.
Since 2020, experienced staff have been raising concerns about the ##EHRC’s independence, & forty of them made complaints, including bullying & harassment, about the Chair, Kishwer Falkner.

Consequently, staff are now wrongly demonised as "woke", & are now leaving in droves. Image
The media narrative, encouraged by the Board & the Govt, is partisan & reductive, & means Falkner cannot lose - if the investigation clears her, it will be portrayed as a victory against the “woke”. If she is not, she'll be portrayed as a victim.

They always use this playbook. Image

'Social justice' refers to the equitable distribution of resources, opportunities, and power within society, as well as the recognition and respect for the rights and dignity of all individuals, regardless of their background or identity.
The evolution of activism, from class-based political movements to identity and social-issues-based activism, demonstrates the dynamic nature of political engagement and the ongoing struggle for social justice in Western democracies.
'Activism' involves various forms of collectivised efforts designed to promote or resist social, political, or environmental change. Dalton identifies two types of citizenship: firstly, active citizenship, which refers to the engagement of citizens in the democratic process.

Starkey tells the National Conservatism conference that #BlackLivesMatter & #CRT are “attempts at destroying the entire legitimacy of thew Western cultural tradition... They do not care about black lives. They only care about the symbolic destruction of white culture.” Image
Starkey's, & ultranationalist misogynist provocateur & Proud Boys founder, Gavin McInnes's edicts, echo identitarian rhetoric, which seeks to sanitize hatred for brown immigrants & their liberal supporters by positioning them as a threat to modern "white culture" & tradition. Image
Rejecting any criticism, far-right populists claim to be fighting against against a ‘political correctness’ perceived as censorship. If criticized they stylize themselves as victims, often connected to the victim/perpetrator reversal strategy, aka DARVO.

Some good news from the US: Democrat Donna Deegan has caused a major upset by beating Ron DeSantis backed Republican, Daniel Davis (who significantly outspent her) to win the mayor’s race in Jacksonville, Florida, becoming the first female mayor in Jacksonville history. Image
Her opponent had the backing of the Republican Party of Florida & the endorsement of Gov. Ron DeSantis.“Everybody said it could not be done in Jacksonville,” said Deegan, who said the campaign and its volunteers had worked for a year and a half ahead of the election.
Davis — a former legislator & CEO of the local Chamber of Commerce — & his allies strongly criticised Deegan over her participation in #BlackLivesMatter protests, & the local sheriff said she would install “radical policies” if elected.

Our country is under attack, by the gouvernement of @Macky_Sall and @AFADiome. They kill us, they abuse us, they torture us, they imprison us and arrest us for no reason, just because we raise our voices. @AsstSecStateAF @FRANCE24 @BBCAfrica @NPR
This is the carceral system in Senegal. These are the people arbitrarily incarcerated, is an overcrowded cell. 250 "prisoners" are on hanger strike today. If Black Lives Matter in the USA, it should matter everywhere black people are abused, tortured and killed.#BlackLivesMatter

È il turno di Rachel Meghan Markle e della favola dell'attrice che sposa un principe, sembra quasi un film vero?
Mi tocca deludervi, ma anche qui ci troviamo davanti una precisa regia.
Dopotutto lei arriva proprio dal mondo di Hollywood.
[1] ImageImage
Meghan è nata a Los Angeles e i suoi genitori si conobbero sul set di General Hospital.
Thomas Markle di origini tedesche, Dora Ragland afroamericana, divorziarono però quando lei era molto piccola.
[2] ImageImage
Nella famiglia Markle anglicismo di Merckel, vanno ricercati i legami con la Corona Britannica e non solo, anche ascendenze askenazite.
Tra Meghan ed Harry ci sarebbe inoltre una parentela, anche se molto alla lontana il loro antenato comune: Edward III

Whether you're Left, Right, or Centrist, #GC, #TransRights, #BlackLivesMatter, #AllLivesMatter, pro-#NHS, anti-#lockdown, #Republican or #Monarchist, the Govt's draconian, antidemocratic, & anti-free speech Public Order Bill should concern #EVERYONE. 🇬🇧
GENEVA, 27/04/23:

The Public Order Bill, which has now been passed by the UK Parliament, is deeply troubling legislation that is incompatible with the UK’s international human rights obligations regarding people’s rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly & association.
“This new law imposes serious & undue restrictions on these rights that are neither  necessary nor proportionate to achieve a legitimate purpose as defined under international law.”
- UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk.

Putin’s @GenFlynn is triggered and knows he’s losing.

Flynn posts an entitled “Truth Be Damned!” including an interview with Mike Lindell and another called “Gen. Flynn Exclusive: We’re Not Going to Win 2024 but the Governors Can Change Everything.”

He’s calling for civil war. ImageImageImage
Flynn goes after @BarackObama and says he was a “Marxist,” says “the United States as we know it is in its final phase,” and says @JoeBiden is a “senile, incompetent lifelong swamp creature who hid in his basement.”

This is antisemitic “Cultural Marxism” propaganda. ImageImageImage
Flynn is mad because the Supreme Court hasn’t completely destroyed separation of church and state, mad at the intelligence community, wants @POTUS impeached, attacks #BlackLivesMatter, and spreads QAnon propaganda about “global elites” and “sexualization of children.” ImageImageImageImage

L'un des drames de la gauche viriliste en France, c'est de ne pas se nourrir de ce qui fonctionne ailleurs. Le chauvinisme jusqu'au bout...

Partout dans le monde, les images de contestation qui ont marqué, fut celles qui opposaient des femmes au virilisme des FdO.

Congressional question for TikTok CEO:

1/ With such widespread influence bringing joy to people why has TikTok blocked videos about human rights in China—particularly those that on Xinjiang internment camps and Uyghur genocide—disabling accounts of users who post them?
2/ Why has TikTok down weighted posts deemed sensitive by the Chinese government and Chinese Communist Party, LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, and certain African-American hashtags?
3/ In February 2022, German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported that automatic subtitles in videos containing terms such as "reeducation camp," "internment camp," or "labor camp" were replaced with asterisks.

In March 2021, the Govt's 'Commission on Race & Ethnic Disparities' claimed that there was "no evidence" of institutional racism in the UK.

In light of the #Casey report, which confirms its continued presence in the MET police, this was an absurd & misleading claim.
This thread is about how the UK Govt systematically misleads voters. The Race Commission is just one example of how the @Conservatives, supported by the billionaire-owned press, deliberately & irresponsibly deploy a political strategy of misleading voters in order to divide us.
Stephen Lawrence was murdered on 22 April 1993. The 1999 inquiry by William Macpherson found the MET Police to be institutionally racist.

30 years after Stephen's murder, the Casey report finds the MET institutionally racist, misogynistic, & homophobic.…

The UK has joined Hungary, South Africa, & Poland, having been downgraded from ‘narrowed’ to ‘obstructed’, in a new report by the @CIVICUSMonitor, a global research collaboration that rates and tracks fundamental freedoms in 197 countries and territories.
According to the report, People Power Under Attack 2022, the government's introduction of a range of restrictive laws, particularly on protest, & the UK government's attempt to undermine human rights, led to the downgrade.…

#FederalReserve is the largest central bank in the world.

Citizen vs. State: If you look at the original founding principle objectives of the federal reserve, you can’t find a single one which benefits the citizen. The fifth objective is clearly a great lie we’ve all been……

Was telling my students just 2 days ago in our pre-Oscars class how people don't realize what a massive amount of revenue for Disney comes from theme parks. A quarter of their revenue. In comparison, for Comcast, it's less than 10%.
Oh that is THE main point I make. unlike Hershey Park or Legoland or 6 Flags, Disney world is ridiculously expensive, remote, swampy, with nothing else much (other than Universal properties).

What are people paying this much for?

What they are paying for is the brand value and loyalty for Disney built for decades since you were born. The potential customer for Disney World is literally every single family in the world.

It is a singularly valuable brand relationship that starts when you're a toddler.

A small but extraordinarily petty thing twitter has done.

#BlackLivesMatter and #BlackTransLivesMatter both used to have little icons when the hashtags were used (for quite some time). At some point in the past week, Twitter got rid of the one for BTLM (see: screenshot)
As you can see, I took this screenshot on the day the tweet was posted, so this is a change that Musk & Co. seems to have pushed through the removal of the icon within the last week, following the right-wing call to "eradicate transgenderism."

Unbelievably petty and gross, Elon.

@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll Wow

1924 not quite century ago😲

But now you're scraping barrel for straws to clutch by going back to 1919😱🤦‍♂️

Part of what #ScottAdams says is Blacks can't move forward if always focussed on past

And can AND WILL only move forward if #EducateYourself…
@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll Talking of #EducateYourself

#RedSummer of 1919 caused 38 deaths in Chicago & 15 in Washington DC😲

That's a bad weekend in the Hood!😱🤦‍♂️

And partly fueled by elites using Blacks as strikebreakers

Partly by left-wing activists using Blacks as weapon to divide

No change there!
@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll But hey

If your folks & you find the country that adopted you so horrible

You've got over 200 other countries to choose from

If the US is so bad why not emigrate again to somewhere better

Or are you looking for as good as can be in the circumstances for the time to destroy!😱

@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll YOU "dgaf" about what #ScottAdams ACTUALLY said or meant

Preferring to #VirtueSignal your #Woke credentials by joining racist "liberal" #CancelCulture #TwitterMob #DogPile on him

He ACTUALLY said "Choose Love instead of Hate"


Bravery over fear

Thoughtfulness over anger
@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll #ScottAdams said he lived in a mixed neighbourhood

Next door to a Black man

And he said if you live in a neighbourhood (of any demographic) where up to 50% of the residents don't like you

And too large a proportion are criminals

Move out

And to judge people as individuals!🤦‍♂️
@FuzzyDanSo @DianeB528 @Rasmussen_Poll As I said to another #Woke #VirtueSignalling #ScottAdams #CancelCulture #TwitterMob #DogPile on #Troll

He's often said every local party goes to is very mixed race (& marriage)

Hasn't & didn't mean "Run Away"

He's a comic

It's a joke

Here's the demographics of where he lives

Yesterday, at a 'counter-extremism' conference organised by the Govt appointed Commissioner for Countering Extremism, Robin Simcox, Suella Braverman predictably blamed 'political correctness' for 'Islamist terrorism', gaining a culture war front page in Murdoch's Times. ImageImageImage
This is a #THREAD about how the Govt's divisive, misleading, & dangerously irresponsible rhetoric has been carefully choreographed over the last three years, by a Tory Govt which works hand-in-hand with a network of opaquely funded ideologically extreme right-wing 'think tanks'.
It centres on the background, ideology, & appointment of Robin Simcox, & William Shawcross's recently published highly partisan #PREVENT review.

Imho, important information about Simcox has been deliberately concealed from voters by the Govt & the billionaire-owned press. Image
