Jordan obviously didn't bother to read the user agreement when he signed up for @Twitter. Apparently, neither did Trump. Difference is, Jordan could lose his account for breaking Twitter's rules. Trump? He won't lose a single tweet. (thread)

Ahmaud Arbery

He’s the victim of a modern day lynching in America. It’s absolutely disgusting that a great many people are defending this killing.

We CANNOT allow laws like Stand Your Ground to give lethal racism a license to kill.
#GunReform thetrace.org/2020/05/ahmaud…
There is a myth, perpetuated by the @NRA & Republicans:

“Stand Your Ground laws ensure society is safer, if I’m allowed to shoot anyone who threatens me.”

That’s why a former police officer shot an innocent black man out for a jog, & why prosecutors declined to charge them.
This lie is the MOST VILE law they currently peddle. SYG laws allow a person to legally shoot someone who they deem a threat, even if they may safely & easily retreat to prevent escalation!

It’s a classic situation where everyone thinks they’re the “good guy w/ a gun”.

Affaire de harcèlement sexuel au Bénin. Mon point de vue sur le sujet. #Tread

Le harcèlement sexuel, ce n'est pas parce qu'une fille vous provoque non, c'est votre égo surdimensionné à ne pas souffrir qu'elle vous dise non ! Image
Depuis je lis que les femmes s'habillent de manière aguichante, qu'elles sont responsables de ce qui leur arrive et que pour cela elles devraient se la mettre en veilleuse pour ne pas broncher mot.
Je lis aussi que les victimes ne peuvent pas dénoncer, parce que de toute façon le linge sale se lave famille. Mais que devenons-nous à la fin? Donc, dans ce pays on va se mettre à justifier les harcèlements ? On va commencer par trouver raison aux violeurs ?

What’s Trump planning to run on in 2020? No wall. Stock market lower than when he took office. No accomplishments. Oh wait - 100,000-200,000 Americans dying is very good he says.
Honestly we have to ensure that Biden wins by 20 points in popular vote and 400 electoral college votes. Landslide beyond landslides.
And send Mitch and Lindsey packing too. And Collins back to Maine! #enough

This Women’s Day, I want to discuss a myth purported by the NRA & Republicans that they use to justify not passing sensible #GunReform laws.

Myth:
“A gun is the ultimate equalizer, and gives women power in dangerous situations. Gun laws, therefore, are sexist.” 🙄
While firearms do give advantage to some women, that advantage is many times manipulated against them. A woman carrying a firearm for self defense is actually much more likely to have it used against her.
“Women who were victims of attempted or completed crimes used guns to defend themselves just 0.4% of the time,'' according to the NCVS.

Women are 100 times more likely to be murdered by a man w/ a gun than to use it to kill in self-defense.

This is preventable. Everyone in #DC deserves to be safe from gun violence. We know what has worked to drastically reduce homicides in other cities. Let’s really #KeepDCAlive @MayorBowser @councilofdc
It’s time we implement a #VisionZero for gun violence prevention: a specific plan with measurable goals. Why do we have a #VisionZero to prevent pedestrian & cyclist deaths [27 fatalities total in 2019], but not for gun deaths [135 gun homicides total in 2019.
We need to fund & hire a Gun Violence "czar" to coordinate efforts across all agencies. DC has a Night Life Czar to cut through red tape for the restaurant & nightlife entertainment industry, but we don’t have a GVP Czar to cut through red tape on gun violence prevention?

#Epstein #Maxwell #Wexner #Weinstein #metoo #Enough #TimesUp #SilenceBreakers

This summary by the Miami Herald of the Jeffrey Epstein case is worth RTing one million times.

Alex Acosta working for Robert Mueller gave Epstein a slap on the wrist b/c the HAD to.

>>Thread>>
The Epstein case in 2007 could not have gone to court without the risk of revealing COVERT operations on behalf of both the US and Israel.

Prosecutions have been dropped cases, at the urging of the intelligence community to avoid embarrassing revelations of misconduct.
This problem between DOJ + CIA has been on-going since 1950s.
>>
A decision not 2 prosecute based on national security grounds is made by at least an Assistant Attorney General…when national security requires abandoning an investigation, forgoing litigation or dismissing a case.

I think the Left has reached a hard fork. Those that want to explore extreme wokeness, open borders, anti-whiteness, apologizing to homophobic/misogynist theocracies, worlds w/o men, reparations for slavery, cancel culture, etc need to branch off. And good luck: You’ll need it.
Emboldening the Iranian Government like this is insane. I don’t care how traumatized you are by the US or how much you hate Trump or how much of Noam Chomsky you’ve read. It just doesn’t matter. Just get a hold of yourself.
The rest of us for markets, democracy, liberal values, modest social safety nets, tolerance, content of character over color of skin, due process, free speech, etc. have to go back to defeating our loyal friends across the aisle & squashing newly emboldened neo-fascists. #Enough

With the number of mass shootings in the United States on track to exceed 400 by the end of the year, a new campaign of theatre activism called #ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence launched yesterday.
Its mission is to spark critical conversations about gun violence across the country by providing middle and high school students with a platform to express themselves through storytelling, foster open dialogue in their communities, and inspire creative action.
Beginning in 2020 as a nationwide call for submissions of short plays written by students about gun violence, #ENOUGH culminates in an evening of simultaneous staged readings across the country of the most impactful plays on December 14, 2020 - the 8th anniversary of Sandy Hook.

We desperately need #GunReform laws in the U.S. #MassacreMitch has an A+ rating by the NRA, & has taken $ MILLIONS, ensuring no gun laws pass.

R’s are handmaidens to the gun lobby, ensuring thousands die yearly, so long as they get #NRABloodMoney. courier-journal.com/story/news/pol…
Now #MassacreMitch has stated he will only allow a Senate vote on #GunReform laws IF #VeryStableGenius is guaranteed to sign it. He wants to be absolved of any responsibility.

What.

A.

Leader.
These deaths are on his hands though. He requests to be known as the Grim Reaper on passing legislation. He certainly lives up to the name.

The NRA is in Republicans’ pocketbooks as well as ears, telling them how to spread fear & lies about guns to the public.

We know better.

Until you’ve held the limp hand of a 20 year old athlete shot in the neck, now paralyzed, with tears streaming down his face, don’t tell me there’s nothing we can do about gun violence.
Because at that moment, looking into his devastated eyes and those of his stunned parents, any normal person would move heaven and earth to change that reality.
Every family in this situation sees the issue in its truest light. When I expressed my sympathy, the father barked out an almost-laugh.

“You’re sorry, doctor? You’re sorry? Well don’t worry. You’re the only one who gives any sort of a sh*t.”

Yesterday, my elementary school had our first real active shooter lockdown drill. Thread: what that actually feels like as a teacher (and a mom). (1/8)
Our principal frantically got on intercom to announce lockdown. Panicked but trying to remain calm, I urged kids to take cover far from any windows or doors. 32 kids packed in 5x20 foot space under cabinets, scared for their lives. (2/8)
Hands shaking, I ran to lock adjoining door, close blinds. Climb over my kids to close corner window blinds. One child whispers he saw someone in hallway. Kids panic. I squint through blinds to see if a child is unprotected in hallway. I am listening for gunshots. (3/8)

When Trump says the NRA’s views will be “fully represented” in talks to #EndGunViolence, does he know they already have a president to do that? As US President, he should care more about the views of 97% of Americans who support background checks. #GiveUSAVote 1/
Senate Republicans up for reelection in states like AZ, CO, OH and ME need to stop standing with the NRA and start standing up for our kids by demanding Mitch McConnell #GiveUsAVote on background checks for gun sales. Don’t ask for our votes if you can’t do your job right now! 2/
Trump says he is “all in favor” of strong background checks for gun sales. Actions speak louder than words. He needs to get #MoscowMich McConnell to #GiveUsAVote in the Senate on measures already advanced in the House. Let’s get this done. #Enough! 3/

Thread: The Power and the Pain of Boycotts and Protests

I am confounded as to how in the hell is trump still president. No Fortune 500 company would tolerate his behavior from their CEO.
The reason is not morality, it’s the PURSE STRINGS.
Any corporation with share holders would ask for their CEO’s letter of resignation or simply fire a CEO who was so shrouded in controversies both social and legal. EVEN if the company was performing.
They would not risk the chance of the CEOs antics affecting sales.
Behold Uber. At the height of their growth, their CEO and founder clowned in the back seat of an Uber, it went viral, and people started deleting Uber from their phones.
Eventually the shareholders said #Enough, asked for his resignation and he is gone*

Ok, so there was a shooting in a Baton Rouge WalMart this afternoon.. you just have to read it. It's NOT an active shooter situation-but shots were evidently fired in the Customer Service area. WHY is it necessary to have open carry? #TuesdayThoughts msn.com/en-us/news/us/…
2-"Authorities and paramedics swarmed a Baton Rouge Walmart after reports of a shooting inside the store East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said officers responded to the store in four minutes after reports of an active shooter which later turned out to be inaccurate.
3-"Instead, investigators say two people pulled guns on each other during a fight near the store's customer service desk and one person started shooting. Gautreaux said an innocent bystander who was buying a lunchbox for his son was struck twice.

THREAD: Men who sexually harass women on the street, in bars, at schools, or in the workplace are abusers/bullies. They are also cowards, often using the additional economic pressures of the workplace to force women to acquiesce, to tolerate such men’s interpersonal dominance. /1
The #MeToo movement is born out of women’s rage against the continuing culture of unwanted sexual abuse in the workplace and every other place they turn. /2
The challenges of being harassed on the street are potentially even worse in spaces where a woman’s financial security is at risk; where woman being harassed can’t simply flee from a job or opportunity they likely worked hard to access. /3

There was a shooting at my son’s school today. He’s safe, but... I’m sitting in a gym with hundreds of parents waiting to see their kids. This is the third time I’ve had to pick up my boys from school due to a lockdown. #stemshooting
The police are doing an great job of getting our kids to us. They’re bussing the kids over by grade. Started with the kinders, and have since called out 1st and 2nd grade parents. My kid is in 6th. #stemshooting
One of the police put his hand on my shoulder and asked how I was doing and asked about my son. The gym is starting to clear out somewhat as parents are called out to pick up their kids. #stemshooting
