If you followed #FreedomConvoy, even supported it, did you really understand danger it poses to Canada? Maybe you waved away extremist elements, saying just a few "bad apples". You'd be deluding yourself. It's time to scratch below the surface, start here:
thewalrus.ca/ottawa-convoy/
Those various flags seen throughout the protest. They weren't one-offs or bad apples, they were embedded in the protest from the start. You saw them:
#Trump flags, Confederate flags, 3% flags, &, yes, Swastika flags (if you have one Nazi in a crowd, you've got a crowd of Nazis).
Think this is an exaggeration? Maybe start to examine what's actually driving these groups. Organizers of #TruckConvoy have a history of extremist views, from #Wexit to disgusting racist bigotry and hatred. It wasn't hidden, you just ignored it.

I was brought up in the church ruled by Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, and Matt Chandler. The real shift away from that happened in 2016 when I was diagnosed #actuallyautistic and then the election within weeks of each other.
Having my eyes opened to both my own disability as well as the violent level of blowback I got for admonishing others in the church showed me it does indeed take faith to move mountains.
My story now in Christianity is that I continue my education in interpretation of the OT. But being on the outside of hermeneutics by a matter of neurophysiology has shown me new voices. I almost hate that I bought into the Acts29, alpha-male, “complimentarianism” rhetoric.

I read this essay with tears in my eyes about how willing some are to sacrifice the lives of other people—people who are loved
/1
I read it after hearing a personal story of how #Evangelical church leaders are bullying the elderly and vulnerable by questioning their faith if they don’t return to church in this pandemic
/2
There’s gotta be a special place in hell for those who violate that ministerial trust by telling ppl their faith is contingent on taking health risks in a pandemic

#BREAKING:So let's get this straight--#Trump @GOP's "strategy" for reelection is NOT ONLY cheating with #Putin's help, but also INCITING DEADLY VIOLENCE so as to push the #LawAndOrder narrative?

SERIOUSLY folks, how the hell is #Trump's #GOP the "moral values" party which enjoys RECORD #Evangelical support, when their ONLY PATH to "victory" entails CHEATING & INCITING DEADLY VIOLENCE? Folks, special place IN HELL!!
#TheResistance #PortlandRiots #SundayThoughts #FBRParty
Let that SINK IN folks--Part of the #Trump #GOP's election "strategy" is to SHIP IN far-right THUGS into #Portland and other cities to INCITE DEADLY VIOLENCE, then turn around and campaign as the party to restore #LawAndOrder. HOW THE HELL did we get here folks?

#BREAKING:FINALLY @JerryFalwellJr CONFIRMS what we've suspected all along, that his wife did indeed HAVE AN AFFAIR with the young "pool boy". OH BOY!!

#TheResistance #MondayThoughts #FBRParty

yahoo.com/news/jerry-fal…
#JerryFalwellJr and his wife say they chose to keep this secret because the "pool boy" was EXTORTING them for "a large sum of money." Are you kidding me?

#TheResistance #MondayThoughts #FBRParty
Question now is--Will #JerryFalwellJr ALSO FINALLY confirm the fact that #TeamTrump blackmailed him and his wife with this info, into ditching #TedCruz in 2016 and throwing the #Evangelical support to #Trump?

#BREAKING:Think about that-#Trump's own sister,a retired federal judge who grew up with him and probably knows about his character more than ANYBODY ELSE,says he's a CRUEL man with NO PRINCIPLES
#TheResistance #MaryanneTrumpBarry #SundayThoughts #FBRParty
apnews.com/542e25e8c91c93…
Yet somehow, the CRUEL man with NO PRINCIPLES, who is also apparently a PHONY, commands RECORD #Evangelical support. Come on folks, is #Trump really the problem, or.......?

Then you have @IngrahamAngle, @seanhannity and others at #FoxNews who #Trump is in regular contact with, singing his praises on TV, while privately confirming #MaryanneTrumpBarry's assessment of him

#BREAKING:Now #Trump's buddy #RushLimbaugh goes on the attack using sexist smears like "HO" and "MATTRESS" to refer to Sen #KamalaHarris

#TheResistance #mondaythoughts #FBRParty

mediamatters.org/rush-limbaugh/…
Think about that folks--#Trump and #Limbaugh are the champions "moral values party" which enjoys RECORD #Evangelical support. NUFF SAID!!

#TheResistance #mondaythoughts #FBRParty
Make no mistake about it. #TrumpGOP, including the "religious" ones, TOLERATE such insults when they are directed at people of color, especially women. Remember #Yoho and #AOC? Hmm

#BREAKING:Now a #Congressman, who's a Minister, is calling for #Trump "#evangelical" #JerryFalwellJr to RESIGN as President of LibertyU after his DESPICABLE unzipped pants photo. GOOD!!

#TheResistance #FridayThoughts #FBRParty

thehill.com/homenews/house…
Folks, I've said it before and I'll say it again. A LOT of the #Evangelicals who came out for #Trump in record numbers in 2016, largely because of "leaders" like #JerryFalwellJr et al, now KNOW they are being MISLED and will not blindly vote for Trump in 2020.

#BREAKING:Turns out #Kushner put together a decent #covid19 national testing strategy but decided NOT TO DEPLOY it because it was politically advantageous to LET PEOPLE DIE in Dem states so #Trump could blame Dem Governors
#TheResistance #SaturdayThoughts
grassrootsdempolitics.com/index.php/2020…
Think about that--#Kushner, and by extension #Trump, thought it was ADVANTAGEOUS to let #covid19 KILL people in Dem states so they can blame Dem Governors in the run up to the November elections. WOW!!

#TheResistance #SaturdayThoughts #FBRParty

Then there was the Washington Post piece which said #Trump DIDN'T GIVE A DAMN about #covid19 UNTIL his aides showed him the virus was beginning to ravage "OUR PEOPLE"

1. What would happen to the #FascistParty (fka @GOP) if a church going #Catholic was on the ticket against a degenerate like @POTUS @realdonaldTrump? It would put the @USCCB on the spot. I think their Devil's pact with #Evangelicals might collapse .
2. We can cap incomes for preachers at the Catholic Bishop top scale. Tax the Trump loversabove that like any other business. @Franklin_Graham @JerryFalwellJr @JoelOsteen @JoyceMeyer @BishopJakes @JohnCMaxwell @RickWarren @MaxLucado @JohnPiper @BethMooreLPM @DaveRamsey
3. @SamaritansPurse @OCC_shoeboxes @BillyGraham @TheBGLibrary @MyHope @ChristianPost @GovMikeHuckabee

Only a counter-attack to Trump heresy could make it possible to tax #Evangelical money-machine & that's what's on the way if they don't get of the evil train. @StephGrisham45

@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN #Israel is a theocratic apartheid military police state.

People are segregated and one segment of people are reduced to living in dire conditions, suffer human rights abuses and abject poverty. They are beaten back by the military when trying to assert their freedom.
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN Why we would support ANY theocracy I have no idea, but we also support #SaudiArabia, a theocratic monarchy.

It doesn't make sense, if we support theocracies, why isn't #Iran our ally? Did we have to pick a side and decide to go with Sunnis instead of Shiites?
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN If the United States separates Church and State according to our constitution, and is devoted to promoting democracy worldwide, we should not be ignoring our values in order to create alliances. If they want to be allies, these countries can change

🇮🇱🇮🇱THREAD ON ANTI-SEMITISM & ISRAEL🇮🇱🇮🇱

Those who conflate opposition to unquestioning support for Israel with anti-Semitism are like #JussieSmollett: they cheapen the experiences of actual victims of anti-Semitism
Let's be clear, anti-Semitism is real and, sadly, it's on the rise in the U.S., especially since the 2016 election. According to the Anti-Defamation League, there was a 60% increase in anti-Semitic incidents from 2016 to 2017.
adl.org/news/press-rel…
The massacre at the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue last fall was the deadliest attack on the American Jewish community in U.S. history. And it was committed by an anti-Semitic white nationalist.
