Trump and his MAGA followers like to call themselves "patriots" but in fact, this "president" and his followers do not love the United States of America, instead, they love their distorted and hateful vision of what they think it should be.
In Trump's America, there is no American Dream, the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to ALL Americans, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. MAGA's vision includes only White Conservative Christians full of hate, anger, fear, and ugliness.
Trump fuels his base, feeding their fears, legitimizing their distortions of what it means to be American. He disparages Syrians, Muslims, Immigrants, People of Color, Women, The LQBTQ community, & incites violence against them. The GOP enable and encourage him on this mission.

This is what happens when white nationalism infuses immigration policy.

Looking at you, @FAIRImmigration, @CIS_org, and @numbersusa
Lawmakers must stop inviting and listening to these groups. They are mouthpieces for white nationalism, not a legitimate "opposing viewpoint."

They've created a framework for immigration discourse built on "fear of an invasion."

That's textbook white nationalism.
When I called the out in this video, they accused me of being an operative for the Qatari government paid to meddle in the midterms.

Paranoid much?

That's also textbook white nationalism.

Mueller report, a warning:
They have spent every single day since Mueller was appointed, on every single TV network, in every single national print / text outlet, on every national radio news outlet, sewing doubt about Mueller and his investigation.

2. Now the plan is, get the report, after a month or six weeks of Kabuki Theater, and use it as the basis for further action.
If the #BlueWave wasn't really a #BluePuddle that action would be Impeachment, but that's not polite, and they might say mean things to us, so ... Nah.
3. So, we get the Mueller report, and then the whole country goes on saying,
"He did this."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."
"Did too."
"Did not."

Ok.. Thread on voting because the establishment voters ain't listening.

1) Get a Fμ©KING CLUE Dem #BlueWave folks: We are PROGRESSIVES

If you have Questions about what that means in practice, please see my pinned.

We DO NOT operate on your #CultOfPersonality crap.
Full Stop
We don't operate on #CultOfPersonality BECAUSE OF OBAMA Cosplaying a progressive like a Furry in Las Vegas and then 109% #Ratfuxing us ALL on every level to service bribers at OUR expense.
This, and the utter disgust generated by @BarackObama @HillaryClinton and their decades of duplicitous lies is also how Trump got into office
Y'ALL think because you choose 2 make excuses we should as well

It doesn't work that way w Progressives

The absolute STUPIDEST thing that Trump could do now is to attempt once again to gut America's healthcare.. it's literally the thing that won us the Midterms, & we weren't nearly as angry then as we are now. His ego is even more astonishing now... Just stunning. #BlueWave #GOTV
2-I was just reading some of @TeaPainUSA 's stuff and he quoted Napoleon Bonaparte, who said, "Never interrupt your enemy when he's making a mistake" Perhaps that's going to be great advice for us from this point on. LET them tank the election!

I've been thinking a lot about this thread on @NancyPelosi and #impeachment since I posted it and about stuff that's happened since.

And I've changed my mind, though I still stand by all the bits past the baby sloth.

I've been thinking about the last two years, where we are now, and where we're going.

Like many of you, I'm used to things moving very slowly. The last two years, they've been running at breakneck speed toward the edge of a cliff.

They're not slowing down, so we can't either.
Michelle Obama said, "Being president doesn't change who you are; it reveals who you are."

She's right.

Trump never hid who he was. Not ever. He never had to. He was in a position where he could always be the way he is—selfish, narcissistic, and greedy—and it paid off.

Here's a partial list of @realdonaldtrump's broken promises dating back to his announcement he was running for @POTUS. Many of these promises were made to set him apart from other @GOP candidates & get support from his "base"...
...Trump promised to fully finance his own campaign. He didn't. In fact it was almost entirely funded by PACs, SuperPacs, corporate & elite 1% donations. Some indication of foreign contributions. Only money he spent went to compensate Cohen for paying off porn stars...
...He would build a 30 to 60 foot concrete wall & Mexico would pay for all of it. Not a single inch of new wall has been built. Further, he's scaling down to "barriers" & finally he's taking money from U.S. taxpayers already slotted to the Military, Disaster Relief & Medicaid...

Dear @HillaryClinton,
I'm appealing directly to you for help in stopping the stealth mission to Rewrite the Constitution.

As of today, Feb 9/19, there are 52 resolutions in 23 state legislatures for an Article V Convention of States (COS). Of these,13 are D sponsored & 8 R+D!
It was because of a televised speech you gave years ago that I heard about GOP plans for a COS, and never forgot your warning.

This is significant, as I'm a CDN living in Canada and the terrifying implications of this were crystal clear to me.
What's more horrifying however, is:

How close GOP is to realising their goal
How Dems are playing right into their plans
How MSM is not covering this
And
How few Americans know it's happening!

(1/21) The 2017-18 @HouseGOP had plenty of indictments, #GOPCorruption, and ethical breaches (see my 21-tweet-thread: ). Now meet House GOP freshmen being sworn in on 1/3/19. With their baggage, they'll fit right in.

(2/21) Ross Spano @RossSpano #FL15
In a clear violation of @FEC campaign finance regs, Spano funded his campaign with large, unreported loans from personal friends. Given the amt & his relatively narrow win margin, it's shocking he is even being seated. (tampabay.com/florida-politi…)
(3/21) Anthony Gonzalez @anthonygonzalez #OH16
In another flouting of @FEC regulations, Gonzalez faced scrutiny for apparently (and illegally) colluding with a supportive Super PAC that was funded solely by - wait for it - Gonzalez's father! (washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/christ…)

Thread. #MyLifeAsAResister looking back at 12 months which feels Iike 12 years. So much happened every day, but we put one foot in front of the other, wading through the lies, the chaos, the deconstruction of our institutions. We keep our faith. 1/24

1. So @njdotcom published an opinion piece yesterday about how the #BlueWave in NJ was all because of George Norcross and his vote-by-mail efforts.

Apparently they think it wasn't grassroots activism, but the work of one man.
2. Let's be clear, anyone working to GOTV is to be thanked and we're sure Norcross' efforts did help the cause. But we have a bone to pick with the idea that it was all him.
3. For those who didn't know, this past summer @Action2getherNJ organized a huge vote-by-mail push in NJ. Our executive director @WinnKhuong came up with the idea and one of our volunteers Quit. His. Job. to work on putting together a database of voters for us to use.

So all of us in the #resistance are giving ourselves a big pat on the back for the #BlueWave. After all, we took 40 seats and soon @TeamPelosi will be House Speaker

Great job! We think. After two long years we can finally take it easy.

NOT. SO. FAST.

<Thread>
Yes, it was wonderful to see those Democratic candidates win. And nice to see our effort rewarded.

With control of the House, we now have a Constitutional check on the president PLUS we control more governorships and state legislatures

But there’s still a TON of work to do.
As the past few days have shown, we still have a corrupt president: compromised by Russia, beholden to Saudi Arabia, unwilling to acknowledge basic facts about climate change and seemingly unconcerned about the sanctity of human life.

.@TJCoxCongress has pulled ahead of incumbent Valadao in #CA21.

If the lead holds, that will bring the Dem gains in the house to 40 seats.

This is what a #BlueWave looks like, y'all.

But that's just the beginning. 1/

2/ Of particular note, Democrats won the popular vote by over 9M, the largest margin in US history.

The closest runner-up was the election after Watergate.

History does, indeed, rhyme. #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation

3/ In addition, Democrats netted 300 legislative seats and 7 governorships. Democrats now have full control in 14 states, which will make this year's redistricting efforts more equitable. #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation cnn.com/2018/11/26/pol…

THREAD.

Another year, another wild ride. Amid all the ups & downs, we have so much to be thankful for. Let’s review: 1/
We remain thankful for the leadership of the folks at @indivisibleteam, who have continued to offer tools, resources & inspiration. The new Indivisible 2.0 Guide will be invaluable in the fights ahead. Time to go on the offense. 2/
We are thankful that we can say without equivocation: Colorado experienced a #BlueTsunami. Congratulations to the victorious candidates who have given Democrats complete control of CO government for the first time in years. We now expect results. 3/

1. Despite my ambivalence about Thanksgiving—having to spend it surrounded only by evangelicals invested in the white supremacist mythology of it has me on edge—I do have a lot to be thankful for. I’m thankful to my parents for housing me during a career transition.
2. I’m thankful for good friends and supportive communities, on and offline. I’m grateful for opportunities to work with people and groups like @aejohnsonphd, @ircrc, @CHShumanists. And for my editors and being able to break into new outlets this year, including @ForeignPolicy.
3. I’m also immensely grateful to all of you who have chosen to support my work via @PayPal or @Patreon. That so many of you believe in me enough to help me get financially established as a writer, speaker, and activist means a lot.

What follows is my opinion about Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party.

Y'all know I tend to stay out of partisan stuff 99.9%, so I won't rant about this ad nauseum.

This just needs to be said. A thread.

1/
I'm concerned about the small group of elected House Democrats working to undermine confidence in the Democratic party by unseating the minority leader of the House.

2/
One of this small group is my own House rep, Kurt @RepSchrader, and I'm fuming-mad at this group of mostly-men power grabbing after she's hung in there for so many years.

Didn't we see enough of this misogynistic agenda in Hillary's campaign to learn a lesson?
