Thread: the #ElectionResults2019 *should* be a wake up call for the left. But not just or even primarily about elections. The elites on the right are colonizers. They aren't trying to control Parliament or Congress. They want the world, as much of it as they can manage. 1/
Whether measured by time, money, or geography, the scale at which elites on the right fight political struggle is orders of magnitude larger and broader than the resistance from the left. We are playing against them with a deck that they not only stacked, but printed. 2/
We're thinking about next year's election. They have a couple guys on that - the rest are thinking about the next *generation* of elections. We're thinking about this county, they're thinking about this hemisphere. If this continues, we lose, and we lose forever. 3/

1- The Labour Party was wiped out..👇🏼

Tories needed 326 for a majority. They won 365 (exit polls forecasted 368).

2- Take a look at 2017 (Left) vs 2019 (Right)..👇🏼

Labour is red, Tories are blue. Scottish National Party is yellow. Yikes.

#Brexit is alive and well.

On the biggest decision in UK history, the majority voted for parties committed to NOT doing something, yet we're about to spend the next 7-10 years doing it.
Congrats to all those who said putting it to a referendum requiring 50+% would be "undemocratic!
And that includes every Single MP who voted for this general election!
I screamed this as loudly as I could. I said the majority would vote against Boris Johnson's plans to "get brexit done" but he'd still win. And here we are.

My 2 Eurocents. #Thread

Het toeval wil dat ik behalve de #ElectionResults2019 ook de podcast van @wierdduk luisterde vanochtend. Vooral over de #GreenDeal En ineens drong het tot me door. Het belang van de Britse uitslag van vanochtend.
Wat zijn ze verbijsterd (BBC), wat zijn ze blij (Torries), wat zijn ze boos (remoaners). Een giga overwinning voor @BorisJohnson Onverwacht groot, zeker in de EU. De domper is natuurlijk dat wij, EU smurfen. Nu niet tegen een iron curtain, maar tegen een water curtain aankijken.
Eergisteren nog presenteerde Paulus de EU klimaatkabouter, Frans Timmermans ons een plan dat de Westelijke EU Burger triljoenen gaat kosten. We zijn machteloos. En machteloos is des te pijnlijk, als je op 30 kilometer afstand de wedergeboorte van de vrijheid ziet ontstaan.

1/ Here are some more "firsts" from the #2019Elections. Our democracy works better when our governing bodies reflect the growing diversity of our country.

2/ In Philadelphia, Kendra Brooks, Katherine Gilmore Richardson, Derek Green & Isaiah Thomas won, marking first time that African Americans have held 4 at-large seats on the City Council.

And Rochelle Bilal became the city's first Black sheriff.…
3/ Safiya Khalid (age 23) is the first Somali immigrant to win a council seat in Lewiston, Maine. She faced racism, xenophobia & Islamophobia while running for office. Trolls told her: Muslims have no place in government and to go back where she came from.…

Crux of #ElectionResults2019:
1) Maharashtra: Congress which ruled the state for 15 years straight (1999-2014) has been reduced to fourth position. BJP, which was junior to even SS before 2014, now undisputed largest party. Being voted back to power is not small feat. 1/5
Crux of #ElectionResults2019:
2) Haryana: BJP was never considered a viable party before 2014. After 5 years in office it is again the largest party. Congress, having ruled the state for 10 years straight (2004-14), is now gasping, desperately seeking turncoats etc. 2/5
Crux of #ElectionResults2019:
3) Haryana: Governance culture that Congress gave the state - rampant black money in real estate; debilitating caste politics. BJP put a full stop to all this. This must have hurt vested interests. Yet, BJP is again emerging as LARGEST PARTY. 3/5

#DMKAlliance win in #TamiNadu is staggering on many accounts. Out of 38 seats went for polls #DMK and alliance partners won 37 seats. A look at winning margins
5 to 6 Lakh = 2 seats
4 to 5 Lakh = 4 seats
3 to 4 L= 8 seats
2 to 3 L= 9 seats
1 to 2 L= 11 seats
0 to 1 L = 3 seats
#TamilNadu Biggest victory margin in seats where #DMK was in contest against #PMK. #Sriperumbudur and #Dindugal.... DMK won both seats by a margin of more than 5 lakh votes. Interestingly in both seats PMK saved their deposits... #TNRejectsBJP #ElectionResults2019

Elections done and dusted, next 5 years will tell about the peoples verdict. People who are happy with the outcome many congratulations
people who are angry, shocked with the result all I got to say is engage in discussions rather than just spew hate, only few people I spoke to had some argument for not supporting modi,even those few didn't have much reason to support rahul or Congress.
Don't be blind in your hate towards BJP, introspect on your views, find validity in the sources, and then project your views. By hating bjp, you have given power to DMK which is a scary sign. Even not in power we all saw numerous incidents of their vandalism

Let me say how BJP losing Kaniyakumari in this thread.

Kaniyakumari constituency revolves around 2 issues:

1) Religion
2) Proposed harbor at Kovalam under Sagarmala project

Christians voting based on religion.


Christian voters irrespective of whether they wants harbor or not, they are voting for Congress.

Hindus gave more preference to Harbor than religious interests.

Hindus supporting harbor voted for BJP.

Hindus against harbor voted against BJP.


Christian votes are consolidated based on religion.

Hindus votes are divided because of the harbor.

Although some Christians believed that harbor is good for the district and economy, they didn't vote for BJP.
