TRANSFERAL OF BLAME.

This thread is to cover #Hypocrisy by #Democrats and their #Racist projections on #Conservatives that MANY PEOPLE do not see.

This is the heart of the #WalkAway movement.
This has been their way since day one.
Transferal of blame.

#MAGA #QAnon #WWG1WGA
We should start where it mattered the MOST. The #CivilWar Era.
The #Democrats did NOT want slaves to have rights. They wanted to keep these black men and women as PROPERTY. They didn't want them to be able to vote. They were "property" and "commodities".

#WalkAway #MAGA #QAnon
A more radical arm of the #DemocraticParty known as the "Ku Klux Klan" or #KKK were known for threatening, harming, and even killing FREE black men and women. Historians still debate whether the KKK's original grassroots movement is what lead to the #CivilWar.

Hi guys, some of you need to dissent/ decline wrt the #manels youve been put on, at the @skochgroup event
- @SkochSameer pls check.
- Guys on manels include @nitin_gadkari @ManishTewari @ashwani_mahajan @iam_anandv @prasanna_s @prasanto @nixxin @AnupamSaraph @pavanduggal + others
2. Does this reflect lack of #merit or prevalence of #sexism that @skochgroup has found only 4 women of worth, out of 46 speakers?

- The 4 women: @ShamikaRavi @rachnakhaira @navikakumar, Yamini Aiyar

- How are the 42 men feeling?
cc @SkochSameer @SreenivasanJain @ManishTewari
3. Today began with @skochgroup declaring that only 4 women were found #meritorious, to speak on tech.
But 42 men were worthy.
They celebrated this #inequality, with a full page ad in Indian Express.

THREAD coming up: on #NakedFeminism, and why the cult of #FemaleModesty is so toxic, despite its well-intentioned aim of shielding women from the #MaleGaze & removing society's focus on women's bodies. #Feminism #Equality #Freedom
Something men realise but many women (including my critics) do not: it's not immodesty but #modesty that gives men power over women. It means they can embarrass and demean women. In turn, well-intentioned men seek to "protect" women by limiting their freedom to work & travel. 1/4
The cult of #femalemodesty doesn't help women - it leaves them vulnerable to daily abuse & to restrictions. It also leaves them feeling out of touch with their own bodies - as if their body is rude and alien. It gives men power over women - both inside & outside the bedroom. 2/4

I urge everyone to read this stark analysis of a world failed by self-serving leaders, & rife discrimination.

These are the parting words of Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, @UNHumanRights High Commissioner in ⁦@TheEconomisteconomist.com/open-future/20…
Everything he writes resonates with the weight of our daily troubles.

Even as @BorisJohnson issues lazy, reckless & empty rhetoric, Hussein’s words remind us not only that Johnson’s like are morally cowardly, but also dangerous. Frothing, but incapable of advancing us. /2
As a Myanmar court sentences 2 @Reuters journalists to prison terms for exposing horrific crimes, as journalism is weighted down again as a crime, Hussain’s words resonate in a world busy with words, not actions.

“What are we saying to the perpetrators? Or to the victims?”

Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
— Benito Mussolini

I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945.
1/
I choose fascist Italy rather than Nazi Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison. Nazi Germany was the extreme militarist, racist and totalitarian variant of Italian fascism, which was more adaptable, pragmatic, rooted in reality and also more incompetent
2/
...ineffectual and half-hearted, all of which seem true to our condition today. Italy was the original form, while Germany was an offshoot.

7 years ago, I wrote "Flushing the Potty Panic" for @transadvocate. I opined the solution to unlawful #discrimination in access to public accommodations in which nudity is unavoidable—toilets, showers, locker/dressing/changing rooms—because "separate but equal" is illegal…
is to ensure via #law that a sufficient number of secure, single user, #disability-accessible, #family-friendly facilities are provided for all people who for any reason desire or require #privacy or assistance, in the manner of the #ADA Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990…
at the same time we ensure by law that all people have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, sexual or affectional orientation, or gender identity, appearance, expression, or behavior, regardless of sex or gender assigned at birth…

Gentlemen, don’t look for a Princess in need of saving, search for a Queen willing to fight by your side.
When we were little girls, we heard fairytale stories about a girl waiting for her Prince Charming to come and save her from her miserable life.

If you believe children shouldn't be separated from their families
If you believe women should have control over THEIR OWN bodies
If you believe that our planet is worth protecting
If you believe that racism should be fought every step of the way

Then you better make some noise
If you believe that men, even 'stars', are NOT entitled to sexually assault women

If you believe that bullying, domination, exploitation and violence will not bring us a better world

Then you'd better make some noise

Because, friends, we intend to be heard.

"The 25 points of the NSDAP Program were composed by Adolf Hitler and Anton Drexler. They were publically presented on 24 February 1920 "to a crowd of almost 2K and every single point was accepted amid jubilant approval." (Mein Kampf, Volume II, Chapter I)

UNFAITHFUL SHEPHERDS

"Many years ago, the then president of The National Council of Churches warned that the danger of the great religious awakening taking place in our country, might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life!
"Perhaps this was a fair assessment, that is, if you conflate #Christian #Zionism with religious awakening. Unfortunately, these "fanatical" #Evangelicals have 0 faith in the #Christian religion to which they give empty lip service--while paying homage to those who hate #Christ.
"For lack of faith in the actual #Bible, #Evangelicals make Scofield’ Notes, (Scofield! A drunkard and a con-man allied with the Satanist, Darby) --#Evangelicals have turned Scofield’s NOTES into a DIABOLICAL FORCE in our #national life.

Werde an der @UniHeidelberg eine Vorlesung über Globalgeschichte der Demokratie halten.
Dabei fällt mir auf: Es gibt eine populäre Demokratiegeschichte, die in vielerlei Facetten in der Forschung zu finden ist (wobei es selbstverständlich eine großartige, vielfältige historische Demokratieforschung gibt):
1) Demokratiegeschichte ist Revolution und Aufruhr. 2) Demokratiegeschichte ist Männergeschichte. 3) Demokratiegeschichte ist Ideengeschichte. 4) Demokratiegeschichten sind meistens national:

1/ Have been really impressed with @Eco since their announcement late last week #cryptocurrency #financial #equality
2/ Their mission is succinct and they have a clear path towards their altruistic vision via @gc and @expa
3/ It’s an ambitious goal, clearly wrought with many obstacles, but built with a strong mission statement

1. Today many were rightfully disappointment at #WomensConvention pick of Sanders to speak. So, I wanted to share @theAWParty intro video.
2. We're a direct action advocacy group galvanizing women & marginalized groups in the Democratic party, making sure their voices are heard.
3. Our first initiative was #VoterEmpowermentDay a day to kick off awareness of #VoterSuppression tactics by Kobach
