In my neighbourhood there was a serial sex predator breaking into women's homes and sexually assaulting them in their own beds. It's bad enough that women routinely have to take more precautions than men to do basic things like go for a walk or a jog. 1/ #sexualassault #crime
I can't describe to you what it's like to be afraid to do something as necessary as falling asleep in your own bed at night. This is what happened to many women in my neighbourhood. 2/ #VAW
At the time this was going on, a lot of women talked to me about their fear, about being afraid in their own homes, being unable to fall asleep or stay asleep in their own beds. There were a lot of exhausted women in my neighbourhood. 3/ #crime #fear

In Israel, Blair makes excuses and says Corbyn is an antisemite, but doesn't know it. (Of course Corbyn knows it, however, Blair makes some interesting observations) #Israel #Blair #Corbyn

Blair: “If you told me, not merely back in May 1997, but at any point in the next 10 years, that the party I led for 13 years would have a problem with antiSemitism, I would literally not have credited it, or believed it, and yet it is, and it’s there today.” #LabourAntisemitism
Important observations for those in the U.S. Democratic Party who still engage in denial or "whataboutism" every time someone brings up the ever increasing antisemitism within the Democratic Party. #DemocraticPartyAntisemitism #whataboutism #JewHate

Let’s examine the response of @UKLabour to the @EHRC investigation, the first full investigation of any political party in the UK (i.e. more serious than that of the BNP).

At first sight it looks plausible, if quite unorthodox. Labour is supportive defensive and celebratory. 1/8
This first paragraph however is the cover for the far more sinister content.

If they are implacably opposed to antisemitism, why are they under investigation? And if they are being investigated why put in that statement in the second paragraph?

This is not just legalese… 2/8
If the Party recognized it was possible that it has a problem, remedies can be suggested. To state categorically (para 2) that it does not have a problem, and that it has always acted appropriately, calls the whole investigation and the integrity of the @EHRC into question.

@arielsobelle "Every time I speak up about anti-Semitism, I’m gaslit by people who deny it exists. They even go so far as to accuse me of fabricating false allegations of hate in bad faith."... (2
@arielsobelle In other words, not only is there a furious spike in hatred against Jews in this world; there is also a ferocious movement to deny that it is happening...(3
@arielsobelle ...We wouldn’t be compelled to state that “anti-Semitism is real” if people weren’t actively declaring that it wasn’t.

So many identify with this phenomenon... (4

1/ "This research was concerned with image-threatening events faced by evangelical organizations & impression management strategies utilized ... In response to that threat, organizations might choose to prioritize managing their image over managing the problem."

1/ If u have played the game the way I have, this clip is not that difficult to break down. Notice Wilson’s right skate before or at the initial point of contact. It is leaving the ice intentionally, which means he thrusts his body into an upward direction, which is towards the
2/ head of Reese. If we look at the left skate during the point of contact, Wilson is rising up onto his toe, as if he is trying to jump, hence the reason he ended up sitting on the dasher of his own bench after the hit. It is clear that Reese sees Wilson coming but that has very
3/ little to do with the fact that Wilson clearly makes contact with the head/jaw of Reese, in direct result of jumping and thrusting his body in an upward motion. Bc of this, we have a human being who may get the right diagnosis of a #concussion yet will he receive the treatment
