The following is a timeline of instances of #extremism in the Trump administration in September 2019.
Trump has opened the White House doors to #extremism, not only consulting with #hategroups on policies that erode our country’s civil rights protections ... splcenter.org/20171004/frequ…

So we've got a general election in #Spain today. Socialist PM Pedro Sánchez is the frontrunner, although it's not certain that he will be able to put up a ruling majority. Here's a thread with a few thoughts on #28A:

1/
What's new?

a) The Socialists are set to win, a first since 2008
b) Five national parties will get over 10% of the vote
c) The far-right will enter parliament, a first since 1982
d) The conservative PP faces an assault on the right not seen since the UCD collapsed in the 80s

2/
The campaign has been heavily polarized between left and right.

The right (PP + Ciudadanos + Vox) has focused on #Catalonia, hammering Sánchez's credibility and accusing him of being ready to cut the country into pieces for the sake of remaining in office.

#CIS Comienzo hilo sobre el barómetro publicado hoy. Conviene recordar que el CIS ya no hace estimación. Son datos brutos.

PSOE 33,3%
PP 16,7%
C's 15,3%
UP 14,5%
Vox 5,9%
ERC 3,3%
EH-Bildu 1,0%
PNV 0,9%
PDECat 0,7%
La evolución es clara, PSOE y PP mejoran. Podemos y C's retroceden.
#CIS Voto + Simpatía

PSOE 27,0%
PP 14,0%
C's 12,3%
UP 12,2%
Vox 4,4%

Aprovechando el #CIS, un par de cuestiones sobre la evolución del voto en #autonómicas #andaluzas entre 2015 y 2018. Hilillo va 👇(cc @CDialoga)
La tabla más interesante es la de cruce 2015-2018. Con un poco de ingenio se puede extrapolar el cruce a número de personas, recuperando nº de casos y aplicándolo al censo de 2018. Si la encuesta es representativa, recuperaremos el número de personas estimado en cada situación.
Este es el resultado de visualizar dónde van los flujos de voto de acuerdo al cálculo anterior: 👇

Cuando queráis saber por qué la intención directa de voto no es fiable tal cual:

Izquierda: recuerdo de voto Generales 2016 según el último CIS.
Derecha: resultado real.

🤔

cc @CDialoga
Desglosando, Unidos Podemos sacó en Generales 2016 un 13,37%, En Comú un 3,55%, Compromís un 2,74% y En Marea un 1,44%.
Por último, la participación real se quedó rozando el 70%, mientras que más del 80% de los encuestados en el #CIS afirman haber votado.

En general, si el muestreo está bien hecho, que un partido tenga más recuerdo que resultado real es positivo, aunque no concluyente.

Multiple high level people at DHS, CBP, ICE are members of or have been associated with these groups.
DHS under-counted children by the thousands.

But previously, they'd released a very PRECISE number, (1488) whichas the beginning of this first embedded thread will explainis difficult to do.

So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

1/n
So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

Recently, a #tenured #prof at a grp dinner made a #sexist joke. I didn't laugh.

He pointed at me & called me out on it.

"See, I knew SHE wouldn't get it."

I reported it to an #administrator & copied a 1st yr prof also present at dinner. She corroborated my story.

Thread 1/7
Like me, she couldn't say anything during dinner as senior prof collaborated w/ our prog, which he reminded us several times. The administrator I spoke to was sympathetic & concerned, & assured us that senior prof is a well-known a**. We aren't the 1st to run afoul of him. 2/7
Hearing their responses validated my experience greatly.

The 3 of us discussed how junior prof & I would deal w/ future events. One way was to ask senior prof to clarify his "jokes."

Junior prof said this was likely to be the least destructive. Administrator agreed. 3/7

So.

Time for something a little different, and an idea I’ve been toying with—a look at how #transphobes try to frame their narrative within a claim that they are only “concerned” about trans people existing.

I think it’s safe to say that every trans person in the...

1/n
community who isn’t a #transphobic arserag can now spot whenever the usual #hate groups and individuals deploy their dog-whistles to denigrate trans people, especially trans women, but it is all too easy to forget that for the average cis person with no experience of...

2/n
this the comments and phrases that #transphobes come out with can come across as bizarre, or non-sequiturs, or even occasionally even reasonable. That person, because they have no experience of this, doesn’t see those comments as the attacks they are, and so can’t...
