I’m not great at self promotion, but I did a deep dive into what’s really happening in #Florida under DeSantis a couple months ago, and the NewYork frickin’ Times just did a puff piece about him today. Compare the efforts and tell me independent work isn’t so essential right now.
Who cares how old he is @nytimes?? The man’s a wanna be Dictator. Look at his state. Look at his policies. Look at the corruption and the anti-business actions for companies who don’t tow his line. Your article is so deeply irresponsible.
If you’d rather listen to this completely sourced deep dive on DeSantis & #Florida the PoliticsGirl Podcast is available everywhere you get your pods.…

@KFF @POTUS @KFFHealthNews @SenMarkey @RepAOC @PeoplesCDC @LongCovidFam @MarkedByCovid @Survivor_Corps @shvintage @MsJulieSLam 249,000 people have lost Medicaid health coverage in one state alone, Florida. In an ongoing health crisis, the most vulnerable people can’t seek care because they can’t afford it. Meanwhile there’s no property tax in Florida.

Emergency repealed, @CDCgov lost power to collect data. The most vulnerable now losing health coverage. It's discriminatory to take health coverage from ppl with medical conditions in a country without a safety net, where medicine/hospital bills can cause ppl to become homeless💔

"WHAT'S AT STAKE when we talk about book bans is student learning and well-being," writes PEN America's @jonfreadom in @USATODAY. "Semantic gymnastics about what is or isn’t a ban is an effort to deny and distract from the problem." #BannedBooks #Reading…
"To avoid charges of #censorship, school administrators, government officials and groups like Moms for Liberty have taken to calling the results of their efforts 'quarantine' or 'curation' – anything but 'ban.'

This debate is not new." (2/x)
"Writing about book banning for The First Amendment Encyclopedia in 2009, Susan Webb explained, 'Opponents of publications sometimes use the tactic of restricting access rather than calling for the physical removal of books.'" (3/x)

🧵🪡 Thread: Debunking FALSE, irrelevant & unnecessary @CommunityNotes placed on @TrumpWarRoom’s tweet. Image
On March 17, 2020 DeSantis wrote executive orders directing:

Pursuant to sections252.36(5)(g)-(h),FloridaStatutes, an licensee authorized to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises that derive more than 50% of its gross revenue from the sale ofalcoholic beverages…… ImageImage
Upon initial re-opening into phase 1, businesses that derived more than 50% revenue from alcohol sales on premises could not be open due to DeSantis’ executive order that suspended sales on-premise of alcohol.

DeSantis singed his executive order to allow all of Florida to open…… ImageImageImage

This community note is unnecessary & irrelevant.

YES—it’s a FACT businesses were ORDERED SHUT in #Florida into SEPTEMBER 2020 under DeSantis’ executive orders.

It’s an irrelevant point when some businesses first began opening—which this community note states.

🧵A K-8 school in Miami-Dade County recently removed @TheAmandaGorman's The Hill We Climb from elementary school library shelves. They say it’s not been banned, but… Image
... When you restrict or diminish access to a book, that’s a ban.

Moving the book to middle school shelves means elementary students can’t or won’t get it.

Their access has diminished. (2/x)
The Hill We Climb was widely praised and read at a Presidential Inauguration.

It was moved to middle schools along with @OhReallyRio's The ABC’s of Black History.

This cannot be separated from the wider movement to restrict books by Black authors and about Black history. (3/x)

I have to stop reading the internet tonight. I have never been so disgusted to be a Nebraskan as I am right now. What is going on in our Unicam now is an affront to the citizens of this state that don't believe that government should play a role in any medical decisions.

This session hasn't been about doing the People's work, passing bills to make life better for ordinary Nebraskans. There's no property tax relief, no prison reform, or any decency. This is a hateful agenda, paid for by the #RickettsCabal and their (Catholic, rich) allies.

It's almost like this session, Senators saw what was happening in #Florida and #Texas and thought, "hold my beer." This agenda has been nothing but divisive and cruel, pushed forward a #Christofascist platform that tests the limits of the separations of Church and State.

Es reicht. Die #CDU lügt hier wieder in Person von @PrienKarin, dass sich die Balken biegen. Die #Ampel ist Schuld am Erstarken der #AfD. #Merz ist vollmündig angetreten, sie zu halbieren. Faktisch stärkt er sie. Ein Blick auf die Fakten. 👇
Die #CDU und #Merz waren es, die den vergifteten Boden der #Politikverdrossenheit, #Angst und #Panik angesichts der #Energiekrise bereitet haben. Den nutzt die #AfD. Am 4.9. des vergangenen Jahres prognostizierte Merz deutschlandweite Blackouts.…
#Merz war sich sicher. "Wenn diese Regierung so weitermacht und aus ideologischen Gründen am Atomausstieg festhält, droht uns Anfang nächsten Jahres ein Blackout." Der Atomausstieg am 15.4. diesen Jahres sollte einen Blackout im Winter nach sich ziehen.

The truth about students learning to #read in #Florida from a REAL #PublicSchool Parent in the wake of the recent #bookbans. A 🧵
#Teachers in K-8 utilize what’s called the Accelerated
Reader Program. #TruthMatters
K-8 Students search for books within their tested reading level that they are interested in reading. Books in the #library are divided up by Book Level so students can easily find a book within their reading level. 📚
Students can also utilize the AR Bookfind website to find books within their tested reading range. With each book they read, they take a test in order for that book to count as a book that they read for class. If they don’t pass the test, they have to take it again. 📚
