🧵 If the Tories lose both of today's byelections in #Wakefield and #TivertonandHoniton they'll no doubt rely on the defence Johnson floated earlier today: governing parties don't win byelections.

Unfortunately for Johnson this claim is solid gold bollocks of the highest order.
During Blair's first parliament, 1997-2001, Labour defended eight seats at byelections, and Labour won every single one of them.
During Blair's second parliament, 2001-2005, there were six byelections, all of them defended by Labour. Labour won four of the six.

A reminder of what a delusional psychopath Tom Marazzo is. This toxic nut-job who was fired from his job, not elected to anything, imagined himself as high level negotiator “willing” to sit down with elected opposition. The entitlement of these assholes is unreal. #FreeDumbConvoy
Tamara Lich, Tom Marazzo, Quiggin, Dichter, Pat King, Chris Sky, all of them, fit the description from this past tweet.
the #TyrannyOfTheStupid.

#FreeDumbConvoy #cdnpoli
The CAF’s wording of Marazzo’s full release from the CAF suggests he was let go. They won’t say why. #FreeDumbConvoy

Let’s play connect the dots. I’ll say it again #FreeDumbConvoy is about establishing a RW insurgency. It’s not a coincidence that many #January6 insurrectionists have both participated in & promoted #CoupTruxKlan & the disinformation assault on #PMJT. #CdnNatSec #cdnpoli
Enter players like Tom Marazzo. His connections to radicalized current & former law enforcement & military can be seen most readily through “vets 4 freedom” & its allied group “camp eagle”. #FreeDumbConvoy #CdnNatSec #cdnpoli #OttawaOccupation
Marazzo also ran as a candidate for Derek Sloan’s neo-fascist “Ontario Party”, which enlisted the services of malignant insurrectionist, Roger Stone. #FreeDumbConvoy #CdnNatSec #January6thCommiteeHearings #cdnpoli #OttawaOccupation #CoupTruxKlan

The #January6thCommitteeHearings have taught us that the violence on #January6th was intentional & planned. So we in 🇨🇦 must ask ourselves what the intentions are of #FreeDumbConvoy for July 1st?

As Ive said many times during #CoupTruxKlan, it was both an op & a grift. #cdnpoli
Just as #GOP members of Congress helped plan the #January6th coup plot, so too are #Conservatives in 🇨🇦 in on the #FreeDumbConvoy plot. #NevrePoilievre & #MurphyBrownshirt are 2 obvious examples, but there are others. #cdnpoli
There are cross-border disinformation/propaganda networks poised to spin lies about #FreeDumbConvoy just as these networks did last time. #TrueNorthCentre #PostMedia #JCCF #Rebel #PostMillennial #FoxNews #OANN #NewsMax. This piece of the story is critical to pay attention to…

Fascinating time politically at the moment. As well as challenging times l agree. I have spoken to more #labour women in the last six months because @UKLabour discriminatory stance against women, i.e. Self ID of men to access women’s spaces. (1
These are elected members as well as ordinary members. I have had calls from ethnic women, bullied by ethnic men, white women bullied by gay/straight white men, ethnic men bullied by white/brown men etc (2
I am not a member of a political party. I am a floating voter. I have no dog in the fight apart from supporting the poors (my people). Yet they tell me stuff which is horrifying and not surprising. Stuff that would be illegal in other work places. (3

Susanna Reid: "Are you honest?"

Boris Johnson: "I think you, y-yes... what the UK is doing & has done since the start of this conflict began is lead the world in helping the Ukrainian people to protect themselves".

A whopping great lie within a minute.

@GMB #BorisTheLiar
On the #CostOfLivingCrisis, Boris Johnson says "the cost of chickens is crazy" & Britain's dependence on foreign electricity is "insane", "because we haven't done enough to invest in our own security of energy" - the #Conservatives have been in power for TWELVE FUCKING YEARS.
Susanna Reid: "Why dont you impose a windfall tax?"

Liar Boris Johnson doesn't say. Living standards are set to fall at their fastest rate since records began in the mid-1950s, & since the financial crisis, productivity has barely grown & sits 15% below the US, Germany & France.

#ElonMusk isn't evil, BUT

His #libertarian ideology can be cartoonishly evil, bcs its amoral. That makes him a threat to #liberty, #prosperity & 250 years of American #democracy

There are a few dots to connect, so stick with me...

5️⃣ #Ideology is blindingly dangerous

First, check out this remarkable @Techcrunch article called "Geeks for Monarchy".

Long before the 2016 election brought us a #Trump/#Putin/#Theil/#AltRight mashup of craziness, @klintron laid out this #antidemocracy ideology waaaaaay back in 2013.

It wasn’t a liberal who announced the Iraq war and New World Order led by a credible United Nations or Emergency Use Authorization or incentivized lockdowns. That was #Conservative #Republican #GOP @GOP #Bush was in #Dallas at #JFK assassination. #Cuba Father of the #CIA
#building7 #WTC23 collapsing without being hit gave Bush JR what he needed a war on terror. It was JR who made Emergency Use Authorization and facial recognition law realID. Everyone knows “Homeland” connection to Hitler. Nazis introduced the term “homeland” at their first rally.
That rally was at Nuremberg where doctors scientists & media would be executed for manipulating and forcing #Jews into medical experimentation. This is where #InformedConsent comes from. All #COVID19 #vaccines are experimental.

Let’s talk about “elites”. When you see this word used by wealthy #Conservatives, you know a con is afoot.
Now let’s talk about wealthy conservatives who’re behind the #January6thInsurrection & how that same group is openly trying a similar op on 🇨🇦 & our Prime Minister #cdnpoli
The fact that a sitting US Senator from #Louisiana, goes on right wing disinformation media to attack 🇨🇦’s Prime Minister, ISN’T about messaging to Canadians. It is about manufacturing a bogeyman. One whose gov’t successfully steered a democracy through a global crisis. #cdnpoli
Louisiana Senator John Kennedy is a multimillionaire, rabidly anti-choice, pro-gun, supported by white nationalist, who voted against every bill that benefited ordinary Americans. He’s also one of the growing list of 1/6 insurrectionists using Trudeau in their propaganda #cdnpoli

The largest #comics social media page on the net,

r/comics on Reddit banned @BloodyRedBaron & his new pro-cop superhero comic for racism & misinformation,

They also banned the @FDRLST citing my article for Baron's ban

Hat tip to @BleedingFool & @BoundingComics
In addition, Facebook has made it all but impossible for Baron & others for ads on Facebook for the Thin Blue Line @Indiegogo campaign,

Blocking ads under the "sensitive social issues that could influence public opinion" rubric

It is genuinely hard to see how some of the @Conservatives defending things coming out of #cpc21 can claim to have any semblance of a commitment to "conservativism". Funnily enough, this isn't a "get" at Conservatives though. Some of the biggest issues are apolitical. 1/
When you see the language and attacks from likes of Raab and Patel though, and the cheers which they received, you have to wonder what happened to some of the old school, small state, individual liberties, Conservatives. 2/
I grew up in a household of them. My mum used to collect Margaret Thatcher memorabilia. Pretty much my first memories are of sitting watching her in Council Meetings, where she was a Conservative Councillor. Before she died she was about to run for Parliament. 3/

A question everyone should be asking: WHY has #cdnmedia failed to report on one of the biggest political scandals in decades. O’Toole & #CPC colluded w/ #Conservative premiers to delay implementing covid measures until after #elxn44vote. People died as a result #CovidInquiryNow
The very next day after #elxn44vote, #JasonKenney shuffles Shandro, #ScottMoe flies under the radar & the UCP sends an official request to the Trudeau gov’t for help. (Because of jurisdiction the feds must be invited). Something UCP could’ve done weeks ago. #CovidInquiryNow
I’d just like to underscore this point. The letter sent by Ric McIver the day he replaced Shandro, is extremely revealing. A “State of Public Health Emergency” was declared on Sept 15, but no formal request was made to the Trudeau gov’t until immediately after #Elxn44. #ABleg

1/9 I've had enough of #Elxn44 depravity. A death threat was broadcast about me by a podcaster you all listen to. Daily there are men on Twitter #SnitchTagging me to gun nuts to spark confrontation

#FYI I've already been shot by a 357 Magnum & I will not be intimidated by anyone
2/9 Most of you want the difficult reporting on dangerous topics that keep you up at night. But on social media, there's this trend where some of you (too many of you) throw female reporters at your enemies, as if we're virtual human shields you've nominated to fight your battles
3/9 But as you 'get your popcorn' to spectate at the events you've chosen for us to do battle, against the very entities you're afraid of, some of them try to track us down in our communities. I've had calls to my home from Yellow Vesters, Wexiters, Qanons, you name it

The current COVID hotspot map. Stop racially pointing the fingers. #Conservatives blame minorities. #Progressives blame “white #Republicans.” You’re both wrong & silly. It’s more class than race. Lots of black, Hispanic, *and* white people don’t believe COVID/are anti-vacciners.
What do many anti-vacciners have in common? They tend to be of the same socioeconomic class. Elites progressives are also stupidly blaming “systemic racism” for minorities not being vaccinated. What? They are so out of touch. They obviously don’t know any lower-income minorities.
A black teenager in Brooklyn, NY recently told her white high school teacher that she doesn’t “believe in COVID.” That is, she doesn’t believe COVID is real. She’s in all black community & her views have nothing to do with “systemic racism.” Stop infantalizing black people.

Time to again talk about @MikeBarrettON. A far right Dominionist who denies man-made climate change, voted against the conversion “therapy” ban, & vehemently opposes a woman’s right to choose. He was helped into power by anti-choice extremist groups like #CLC. #cdnpoli #ONpoli
Michael Barrett’s has recently taken to putting out #PierrePoilievre type propaganda videos. At the end of his most recent disinformation contribution, he attempted, I guess, humour? 😣. But ironically just conveyed he was being upfront about his dishonesty? #ONpoli #cdnpoli
Michael Barrett, along with most of his far right cohorts, had very little (or nothing at all) to say about 2 deadly serious events: the #January6thInsurrection & the assassination attempt of 🇨🇦’s Prime Minister. Barrett said nothing about either.

But….

A blanket of smoke is covering #Alberta today.

Climate change events like this are becoming more frequent. So here is a short thread on air quality.

#cdnpoli #ableg #abpoli
cbc.ca/news/canada/ed…
Right now there are air quality advisories across the province.

Health Canada uses a 1-10 scale where 1 is nice clean air and 10 is a like a #Conservative government in your lungs.

Alberta uses the same scale.

airquality.alberta.ca/map/🔗

#ableg #cdnpoli #absmoke ImageImageImage
A 1-10 scale is beautiful in it’s simplicity, but it also fails to communicate what’s really going ok with air pollution.

@environmentca does offer explanations for these numbers, but you have to go looking for them. Image

If you want a history lesson on #Totalitarianism... then read and share...

The people of Cuba are demanding the end of the communist regime in their beloved country. Meanwhile, the forces of totalitarianism rise up in America. @wgarneau

Imagine if #Hitler, #Stalin, and #Mao had access to the kinds of information the NSA collects. Imagine if they would have had access to Facebook, Twitter, or would have had access to the technology of the modern police state.

No need to imagine, it's happening in USA right now!
What would a political purge in America look like?

#Conservatives are being labeled dissidents, extremists, and potential terrorists by the government.

A political purge would look exactly like what is happening in America today!

Is it a waste of time to campaign for a #ProgressiveAlliance #DemocraticAlliance?

There are multiple hurdles, including:

*and NB please add, as I want to hear about any I've omitted.

(1)
- The continuing conviction of some libdems/some Labour that they can win an absolute majority (aka #SwinsonSyndrome or #CorbynComplex)
*They can't. This is the decision now: keep shouting in the wilderness or gain power with others who share your values if not your policies.
(2)
- Division in @UKLabour party, both between centre/left, & ideologues/realists.

*Both debates are frequently prioritised higher than any push to get power.
Power is the only way to forge change and having the - well, power- to implement policy.
Isn't power what it's about?

Since #Harper is trending, let me take this opportunity to remind everyone that 🇨🇦 is still paying a heavy price for the decade of darkness from his #CPC.

#Conservatives self-servingly claim he’s long gone from office & it’s ridiculous to invoke him. Wrong. #cdnpoli
There are too many acts of corruption, malice, subterfuge, fraud & blind ideology to possibly list in a Twitter thread. So I’ll just bring up some highlights.

1st. Harper’s secret #FIPA with China, where he sold 🇨🇦 out & tied the hands of all future Cdn governments for 31 years.
Then there was Harper & #CPC selling 🇨🇦’s Wheat Board to a conglomerate controlled by the Saudis. #cdnpoli

🧵Hmm, notice the latest trend of manipulative bullshit coming from the #CPC? You know, where they’re suddenly pretending to be centrists caring about others because their nonstop messaging of hate & divisiveness wasn’t working? #cdnpoli
Let’s start with Mr “Barbaric Cultural Practices” himself, Stephen Harper. Harper goes around the world undermining democracies through the #IDU & supporting far right authoritarians like Muslim hating ethno-nationalists like #ViktorOrban & #NarendraModi. #cdnpoli #CPC
Next, we have #ErinOToole, who, along with all other #Conservative MP’s, except Michael Chong, voted against @iamIqraKhalid’s 2017 #Motion103 condemning #Islamophobia. Now he’s attending a vigil knowing Trudeau is away on state business? Quite a change in tune🤔. #PRscam #cdnpoli

NEVER forget this. #DougFord has been the client of one of the most manipulative dark actors to ever operate on the Canadian political landscape: Navigator. They have coached him, planted stories in the press, shaped social media responses through inauthentic activity. #ONpoli
Remember this piece of lockstep propaganda in #cdnmedia?

Take note of who falls for #DougFord’s ridiculous crocodile tears today. The Trudeau gov’t transferred billions to Ford for #COVID19Ontario relief measures. Ford hoarded the💰instead of implementing #PaidSickDays. #ONpoli
Now that there are petitions demanding #DougFordResign, suddenly this incompetent conman can produce the #PaidSickDays that he was given federal funding to help pay for, OVER A YEAR AGO? Anyone who falls for #DougFord’s soap opera acting, is a fool, a liar or an enabler. #onpoli
