1) Donald Trump’s press conference Wednesday, and the responses to it, are an important and perhaps historic moment, beyond the controversy. It made irrevocably clear that Trump intends to rule as an authoritarian, and his followers want that. Ridiculously long thread follows.
2) @ThePlumLine has already limned the authoritarian nature of the behavior of both Trump and his minions in searing detail. I urge everyone to read this thread so they can understand the dynamic at work here.

3) This is hardly the first time Trump has attempted to assert that his version of reality is the only legitimate one, and that all others are “fake.” It’s been a trademark of his tenure. He uses the gap as a wedge to drive his followers closer.

@vijaya 1/2 The account @GlobalRevLive was banned by Twitter a few weeks ago. This was the main account (and livestreamers) that launched #OWS from one corporate park in NYC to 1000 cities worldwide. I was an editor. Also #BLM. About 80% of its content is RTs, 20% original.....
2/2. The account did not traffic in Fake News, bots, racism, or conspiracy. Some of its multiple editors are award-winning journalists, including myself. All of the individuals who had access to Tweetdeck at ban time—also banned. This is an assault on independent media. Just why?
Some coverage of GR:
BBC:
The New Yorker: newyorker.com/magazine/2011/…
Wired: wired.com/2011/11/inside…
The Atlantic: theatlantic.com/national/archi…
etc
Are you getting the picture here? This isn't some Alex Jones setup, it was a powerful independent media collective.

I've noticed in my conversations with Republicans/conservatives that their worldview often relates to *their* perspective. They've faced poverty, medical conditions, economic insecurity, racism/sexism, and countless other problems first hand. 1/
Their expression of things comes from that place. I say, "What about these people who cannot make ends meet?" and they might say, "I used to be one of them, but I worked my way out of it" or "I am working my way out of it". 2/
Those who are distinctly different, like immigrants, are likewise based in their perception of those people, often a projection of fear. That is, some of the immigrants are heinous criminals - the ones who aren't plan to burden our social welfare net. 3/

1/ What’s #FakeNews?

A vile anti-Semitic white supremist Trump-hater kills many Jews at prayer.
Media blames tone of @realDonaldTrump who’s daughter, son-in-Law and grandchildren are Jewish.

Why does media not see @POTUS family as victims of hate crime along with all Jews?
2/ what’s #FakeNewsMedia

Now contrast above with News coverage under Obama.

Obama surrounded himself with race baiters like @TheRevAl which fostered #BLM
Militant side killed innocent cops while on job — no connection by media to Obama’s tone on blacks killing white cops.
3/ What is #FakeNews

Now honestly review facts under part 1 of this tweet with facts under part 2 of this tweet and ask yourself which Presidents tone:
@realDonaldTrump
@BarackObama
is there greater cause and effect stemming from the “tone” of either President?

Honestly.

"The NPC meme is a response to something real.

"We are all NPCs (to one degree or another) because we are all in bondage."

The first step to freedom is to realize that one is in shackles.

This is why the NPC meme is so subversive, and must be contained.
jacobitemag.com/2018/10/02/emp…
In "A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy" (1859), Karl Marx wrote:

"It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness."

Marx, the original NEET, also dreamed the NPC meme into being.
The theory of historical materialism, which posits that economic base determines superstructure, led millions to believe that revolution would liberate them from capitalist oppression, and transform them from NPCs into PCs.

They were wrong, of course. The meme was just a dream.

OK my @medium account got "caught in the spam filter" & has been restored so let me try this #thread again. I've been working for several months on a series of blogs explaining trolling & botting tactics used by 4chan during the election. #ContentWarning: medium.com/@erin_gallaghe…

The Black feminist movement has been hijacked by imposters. These imposters center & prioritize immigrants & the #TransCult. Native Black American women are expected to be the main foot soldiers for other groups. #BLM and #MarchForBlackWomen are "fifth column" groups.
Some pro-black Afrocentric male lead groups are also "fifth column" groups.
A "fifth column" is any group of people who undermine a larger group from within, usually in favor of an enemy group or nation. The activities of a fifth column can be overt or clandestine. Forces gathered in secret can mobilize openly to assist an external attack.

On July 22nd Wikileaks released 22000 DNC emails that had been previously hacked by Russian GRU agents. On Oct 7th Wikileaks dumped hacked John Podesta emails soon after the seemingly damaging Access Hollywood tape came out where Donald Trump talked about sexual misconduct @ollie

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:

PLS WATCH:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO

VS

#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

Does anyone see how incredibly racist this is? Why is @JeffreyToobin saying ANTIFA is predominantly black? Is it because they’re violent? Is it because they destroy property and wear masks? Pretty sure majority of them are white, spoiled white. @CNN
ANTIFA arrested in Charlottesville
Maybe he meant they predominantly wear black? These are white kids.

Defining “Socialist” isn’t hard. You just have to read their work & listen to their leaders

And what you’ll find is frightening

Worse yet, the Dem Socialists of America (DSA) actually has a good shot of gaining power if we don’t wake up & fight back

Let’s read their plan: 1/17
.@DemSocialists want to abolish capitalism and transfer ownership of “essential” industries / related businesses to the govt or worker committees.

Why?

“Wealth is a social creation and should be controlled by society as a whole.”

(bit.ly/2vfQ7E5)
DSA’ers are squishy when defining which industries they’d nationalize. But the list touches every possible business, from food to electronics

Workers would then vote on which role is best for them, similar to the disastrous experiment at Zappos in 2016. (bit.ly/2DKlGNd)

1/10-My Fellow Patriots... for too long we've been distracted by trivial things, allowing corruption to spread within our nations & around the world. 💔

WATCH & learn the truth abt #HumanTrafficking #PedoGate:

@POTUS #MAGA #QAnon #Resist
2/10-The truth is hard to face. You may feel overwhelmed & wonder what can we do, to end this corruption? 😖

If you are part of #TheResistance #Resist #NeverTrump #NotMyPresident #BLM movements, you're not going to like what I have to say, but PLEASE try to keep an open mind. 🙏
3/10-I don't know if #QAnon is real, but their info seems to line up w/the ITNJ video in tweet 1. 🤔

So pls WATCH "Q The Plan To Save The World":

I believe @POTUS is part of this plan & we must #WalkAway from our #UniParty system, to help #DrainTheSwamp

Today more evidence revealed just how fake the #walkaway campaign is & more importantly at least one of the groups funding this campaign. The walkaway campaign is supposedly Democrats walking away from the Democratic party into the open arms of the GOP. Funny right /1
Here is another fake ad that is supposed to be of this organic Democrats that is fed up with all the hate, racism and divisiveness of the Democratic party & is now a #walkaway convert to the Republican party. Huh?? Talk about gas lighting #resist #uniteblue #trumprussia /2
So it turns out these ads are identical in the font used and style to that of previous Turning Point USA ads created in 2016 and 2017. Here are a couple and note they are almost identical to the #walkaway campaign ads #resist #uniteblue #trumprussia /3

Democrats have been brilliant about spinning #RussianMeddling consciously leaving out Russians used social media to post Anti-Hillary AND Anti-Trump posts. Schiff released the posts but they are tedious to view, lets look at some #RussianCollusion pro-muslim #muhrussia
Don't like gay sex? Great then don't have it. Obviously this was aimed to help Trump win, because the Dems biggest platform wasn't that he "hated gays"
Racism, it's time to stand up for whats right? If you didn't know this was paid for in Rubbles who would you say this is geared towards? #RussianCollusion

Why were these black students refused a ride by @Uber? And why hasn't #FakeNewsCNN or anyone else in the liberal MSM covered this? Where is @AC360 @donlemon @Acosta @maddow @ChrisCuomo or #BLM? Where is the outrage? Clearly, this is and was discrimination. ##WalkAway
I guess this isn't part of the narrative #FakenewsMedia wants to cover. Time for black folks to #WalkAway. Any discrimination on any level is wrong and must be addressed. Don't let this story die. #WalkAway
Liberal MSM is more concerned about illegal aliens being refused services than taxpaying black citizens being denied services. This is horrible. #WalkAway

You asked about racial violence between cops and people of color.

Fundamentally, you're asking if #BLM is right.

Let's start a conversation about what we know - and what we don't - about police, bias, and the killing of our fellow citizens. (1/14)
Most of us would agree that a single death of an innocent person by a police officer is one too many.

Black or white.

Police departments agree. They have training & oversight to ensure shootings don't happen or officers are punished when an unjustifiable killing occurs.
#BLM argues that, regardless, the system isn't working; cops are still targeting black people w/ violence or avoiding punishment when caught.

It's a belief founded in America's very real & ugly history.

A brief review of that shameful past is here: wapo.st/2NqtYLD

Yes, I’m an angry #Democrat.

We’re not a reasonable party anymore. We’ve exhausted ourselves with conspiracies & outrage while ignoring facts & careful analysis.

Then we have the audacity to complain about the fatigue of it all.

Let’s review the party’s madness. (1/11)
Since our #2016Election loss, we have flopped in every direction to find an excuse for our failure.

Blame the 63M deplorable Trump voters.

Blame the #ElectoralCollege.

Blame Comey.

Blame the Russians.

No. Stop it. Blame Clinton, the DNC, & her primary voters. They suck.
About those #Russians.

We have assured ourselves that Trump is a Russian traitor. We’ve held up the #SteeleDossier as proof.

Nevermind that CIA Director Brennan gave it “no particular credence.”

Rather than let Mueller find the facts, we’ve already executed POTUS for treason.

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS globalnews.ca/news/4304951/c…

On the one hand, this article and takes from @yfreemark and others are very correct, and it's a trend I wish had been better recognized before.

But there's some technological fatalism here that doesn't recognize how Democratic strategies have helped create this alignment.
So let's start with one thing. This isn't about "coasts vs. heartland," or "economic anxiety," or any other dumb thing.

It has to do with Democratic strategists obsessed with an insanely simplistic and myopic view of the electorate and microtargetting subpopulations.
The geography to this is that the media outlets which most strongly shape political narratives are based in DC and New York, and smaller outlets with smaller budgets increasingly rely on syndicated columnists either based there or edited by them.

Nothing against DC or NY....

I think 98% of "REVERSE RACISM!!" yawping is BS, including a lot of affirmative action complaints, but this will never be true no matter how shamelessly people try to redefine the common and obvious meaning of 'racism,' and it's disgraceful to argue otherwise. Bigotry is bigotry.
The minute someone starts making a "well *my* bigotry is acceptable and not really racism because teh power structure" argument, then you have entered the world of what is known as "special pleading," and special pleading always merits hard scrutiny (and, usually, contempt).
And listen: the reason I normally do not engage in this arena on Twitter is precisely because I think that, despite sometimes getting behind the wrong avatars, the #BLM movement has a core, deeply powerful and socially important point. Which extends beyond mere police shootings.

You must remember that the secret to all of this is not to be afraid of fear. When you can really allow yourself to be afraid, and you don't resist the experience of fear, you are truly beginning to master fear.
