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:
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.

"Increasingly, experts have identified misogyny as one such ideology that motivates violence and can be a component of far-right extremism."…
"In addition to motivating deadly and violent behavior on its own, misogyny in the US also has well-documented ties to other extremist movements, whose far-right supporters have both adopted misogynist attitudes and used hatred of women to recruit new supporters."
"The first section of this report examines the ties between misogyny and far-right extremism, and how their association leads to the radicalization of their respective adherents."

#AndrewYang and #KrystalBall have long conversation, on #YangSpeaks (now #Forward) about his new party (arguably NOT a party), what it will do, and why.

#YangGang have been waiting for definitive answers. Well, your wait is... not really over😵‍💫
What do I mean by that? Well...

@AndrewYang said he IS starting a new party...
BUT he "answered" the question of whether the Forward party would run candidates by saying it will back #Democrats and #Republicans who align with Forward policy...…
He said he is forming a new party because he doesn't believe changing #election rules in favor of more parties is likely to happen from within the #duopoly...

BUT, they're going to back duopoly candidates, and didn't mention running their own...

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

The armed militia/paramilitary wing of the #Reopen anti-mask movement announced it will be in Doylestown #BucksCounty #PA01 8/25 noon until @CBSDSchools meeting to discuss amending the health & safety plan based on @buckshealthdept David Damsker's new #COVID19 guidelines. 1/5
The armed militia/paramilitary group is trying to brand this act of intimidation in #BucksCounty #PA01 as "family fun" & a "celebration." According to the flyer the event is co-hosted with Parents of @CBSDSchools, which one could assume are from the #reopen, anti-mask bunch. 2/5
This "family fun" armed militia/paramilitary group also offers to its shock troops, I mean members, discounts for Ballistic helmets "ideal" for law enforcement, military and private security contractors. Why would they need these? #BucksCounty #PA01 #extremism 3/5

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

Tomorrow, trial against German #army 1st lieutenant Franco A. will start. He is charged with plotting a false flag extreme right #terrorist attack. It is one of the strangest and most shocking cases involving active duty #military personnel and far right terrorism. Short thread.
Before zooming in on this case, here is a background reader on the history of far right #extremism and the #military in Germany, the UK, the US, and Canada we wrote for .@ICCT_TheHague in September 2019:
Franco A. was arrested February 3, 2017 at Vienna airport by Austrian authorities while trying to retrieve a gun he had hidden there earlier. He was an active duty 1st lieutenant in the German army then. He was let go. However, Austrians informed German military intelligence.

Blowback & retaliation anticipated today (#Friday) for #PTIGovernment banning #TLP. Mosques & seminaries/madrassas continue to operate beyond #Pakistani state's authority & control. Large scale #protests by TLP supporters & sympathizers expected nationwide after #Jummah prayers.
Taking a leaf out of #France's book, #TLP supporters on #socialmedia are using the hashtag #IAmSaadHussainRizvi (#IamSaadHusaainRizvi - with a spelling mistake - is also trending).
It seems like decades ago, but does anyone else remember #JeSuisCharlie #IAmCharlieHebdo from 2015?
Not sure whether this is the 'official' account, but pretty sure this is how it starts...

لَبَّيْكَ اللهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ – لَبَّيْكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ – إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ وَالنِّعْمَةَ لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ – لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ۔

For their militant designs & political relevance, #TLP has corrupted & innovated (بدت) the above Talbiyah recited by Muslims at Hajj & Umrah
Upon entering state of Ihram, Muslims recite Talbiyah & keep reciting it during Hajj or Umrah.
Its translation:
"At Your service Allah, at Your service. At Your service, You have no partner, at Your service. Truly all praise, favour and sovereignty is Yours. You have no partner."
What do #TLPterrorists keep reciting again and again?
لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ یا رسولﷲ؛ لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ یا رسولﷲ۔
Notice no pause for ﷺ and a vile nefarious attempt to associate our Holy Prophetﷺ as a partner to Allah SWT?
May Allah SWT Forgive us all!
