Most recents (24)

For the first time in my life I felt unsafe doing #GOTV & got personally targeted & my photo posted on a QAnon type site.

More appalling was how many on #healthcare & #academia, if you are connected on social media like FB, are pro-violence & anti-rule of law & support J6.
If you are a Black, immigrant, LGBTQ, chronic illness, Muslim, etc person, patient, #HCW, teacher, heck yeah, is scary

Thing is those who have been safely tucked in cocoon of suburbia, worried about junior making the cut for the bball team
now feels suddenly scary

Us: not new
We *need* the ppl who typically enjoy more safety to step up. It feels “ick” to report, like you are an informant in Nazi Germany or something, but it is opposite: being “nice” & “not controversial” & “let’s all get along”
➡️empowers bullies

Be a true ally
Not bully ally

1/ "Fear and Loathing in Central Florida" 🧵

I'm pretty fn sick of the corrupt politics in Florida. Casinos, bigotry, Disney, election fraud, Russia, Elon, insurrection...Mormons? That's right, Central Florida has it all.

3/ Here's a couple of the state and federal laws she is helping break. It's reminiscent of Rod Blagojevich...except way fn worse. #HobbsAct

@TheJusticeDept this entire thread is for you. Cheers.

/1 4/17/22 UPDATE - DOJ IS #DOINGSOMETHING 🧵: Litigator here. I’m a bit mystified by the defeatism and non-stop #DoSomethingGarland which seems to rear its head even when progress is made.
/2 REALITY CHECK: Trump et al. could get thrown in jail tomorrow and it would not change the fact that the GOP is laser-focused on overturning election results by co-opting state officials & passing voter suppression laws.
/3 WE GOTTA #GOTV: We have to put our energy into winning elections and that means all of us. Instead of hand-wringing and despairing, sign up to GOTV and get voters registered - we have primaries going on right now and we need to get Dem voters focused.

This 👇🏽👇🏿👇🏻 This is why #BLM exists & why “implicit bias” is not only real but it kills

Why, when you see it, say something, do something
The system changes not by sharing tweets & hashtags but actions & consequences & removal of toxicity from the system

Take #sharethemic initiative. It allowed #Blackexcellence to speak thru #influencer accounts to large followings for a day. I looked at before/after numbers, it did NOT drive any additional traffic to the actual accounts of those voices. Resurfacing this:

Those of us with immigrant backgrounds have NO idea what debt we owe these women for risking their lives so some of us can shop at Whole Foods with other suburban moms, then drive a Lexus home to ride on a Peloton, & think only our own hard work created this access to success.
Those of us who are Muslim have a partial experience of what it is like to be made the face of threat and danger and vilified.

…But “the West “still wants to “save” Muslim women… make us a token or mascot of saviorism & evidence of being a shining city on the hill.
In comparison, the black woman doesn’t have that opportunity to be paraded around as the most recent woman “saved” & celebrated - the tropes are universally harmful & exploitative/pejorative vs Black women in society/media + centuries of economic barriers/being exploited.

For #Virginia #ClimateAction, the choice is clear:

VOTE @TerryMcAuliffe

terrymcauliffe.com/issues/clean-e…

The contrast between McAuliffe's respect for science and #Trumpkin @GlennYoungkin's climate denial is stark.
For a perspective, see @VoteClimateUS's scorecard: McAuliffe 68, Youngkin 12.5. (Terry's score is harsh while Glenn's is generous.)

#GOTV in Virginia!
Vote, get three #Virginia friends/acquaintances out to vote, go canvassing, make calls to assure Ds win up and down the ballot to support #climateaction:

He may Rest In Peace, but the things he fought for are still a problem eight years later and there is only one man too blame for those problems.

In 2013 Duggan’s experience is less than Adams in 2021. Did this affect the lack of progress by the Duggan administration?
If you review Duggan’s record, as he stated, he failed everywhere. Image
Then the next election
Duggan’s slogan was ‘promises made , promises kept’ which was a lie by his own measure. The same goes for what he has stated for 2021. Image

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

.. QAnon hijacks the architecture of social media..

..By controlling acceptable forms of information, QAnon traps its members in a downward spiral of radicalization.”

“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe
Above is not limited to academic articles

There has been an increase in #antiAsianhate crimes
shootings
#xenophobia
targeting of #GOTV by minorities
including this attempt to intimidate me for my GOTV, by armed right wing

There was the #Nashvillebombing (with QAnon beliefs)

Just stop these tiny violins. As a woman of color who lost my mother to the pandemic, as a licensed physician, and as a public servant, I can say it is EXACTLY women like Dr. Birx who drive out women like me from “her” turf & prematurely end the lives of women like my mother.
You don’t have to buy an assault rifle and show up to shoot someone’s mother to have blood on your hands.
Bureaucrats like Dr. Birx has blood on their hands no different from as if she did this. You can kill, passively, while wrapped in an Hermès scarf.

@JeromeAdamsMD this is an example of bureaucrats & policies causing death

Perhaps before implying seeking accountability for the policy-driven deaths of so many mothers & loved ones

is “anti-feminist”
learn history
bureaucrats kill women & men of color

@FBI - I have been marked as a target by alt right already - my #GOTV work is what #MarjorieTaylorGreene spreads hate on - citizen rights of minorities. The violence that smashed the skull of #OfficerSicknick on Jan 6 was about effective #votingrights work of @staceyabrams
(Deleted tweets cuz the posted link was wrong - gah. I hate deleting tweets but the meaning totally changed.)
What I threaten is the power differential in #healthcare -by my identity & work - all bullying is about power first & foremost. Yes, I threaten bullies & their sidekicks. I open, expand, include vs paranoia to exclude, block.

Other Muslims like me, shot: dailytarheel.com/article/2020/0…

Not only experience, which is important, but clinical #research does not parse out the Japanese man or woman from the South Asian man or woman on heart disease risk, epidemiology, treatment.

#EBM lacking for us then

And then there is the question of who is white.

Iranian/Persian & Arabs are white on census.
Does the rest of America agree?

Racists & xenophobes tend to use loophole to say being anti-Muslim (whom they consider to all be Arab) is “not racist.”

latimes.com/projects/la-me…
Proving again: race is a social construct

Not until 2020 Persians really started to call selves “POC” (for self protection)

Have lots of Persian friends
Urdu culture has Farsi roots

But let’s be honest: Persians have seen selves as superior race, apart

If you want to understand a woman, look at her mother - at least true of me

My mom? As a new immigrant to America, when she encountered an unfair Eurocentric rule from her English Lit grad program? She wrote a paper & got the rule changed

Smart
Owned her power
Effective
Ethical
My mom and I are the same in core values but opposite externally. She uses maybe 1/100th of the words that I do and is intensely private. I am out climbing literal mountains while she prefers to stay in and read books and my dad’s #engineering journals.

My mom is an introvert who thinks 10x before speaking w/ surgical precision, educated by German nuns & British educational system
We are Urdu-speaking

She is fearless in face of patriarchy

It runs in the family. Have strong, activist #womeninleadership role models in #Pakistan

We are so honored to have spent this year with you! As we wrap up December — and a decade — we want to reflect on the special moments we shared together. Stay tuned as we head onward into 2021! 🔨 Image
1️⃣ Through incredible resilience and grassroots devotion, we won our re-election by a landslide of 18,000 votes — including two precincts that went to President Trump!

Our community said Anna’s gotta go back to the Florida House and we are prepared to make you proud! 💪🏽 Image
2️⃣ Championing constituent services is always a priority for us.

This year, our work in supporting constituents thru #COVID19 led to an @OrlandoWeekly Readers’ Choice Award as Best Local Politician in 2020, & Orlando Magazine noted us as one of 18 local leaders during crisis. Image

I started posting facts & truths about @realDonaldTrump the day he came down the escalator.

Went to DC for the Women's March.

Sat in airports for the @ACLU making sure people's rights weren't violated during the Muslim Ban.

That is how 2017 started.
Now we are at the end.
This girl was the first person I saw when I got off the escalator in DC. So fierce. So determined.

You can find my #WomensMarch photos and others at my Instagram. instagram.com/schachin/
I found @ParadiseResists part of @IndivisibleTeam & started working on opposing attacks on the vulnerable.

Our founder was a pistol.
She did not make it.
Died of cancer end of last year.
She won't see him voted out.
But she saw us make change.

Minister Stretch is next to her.

Taking lunch break to say, here's how to #GOTV in critical states:

(And apologies for the delay - day job is busy)

Arizona:
Help @MissionForAZ get out the vote w/ critical phone banks: mobilize.us/missionforaz/?…

Georgia:
Still needs phone bankers here! mobilize.us/georgiademocra…
Nevada:

Is offering a WIDE range of phone bank options and times. Start here: mobilize.us/nvdems/?tag_id…

(And if you're wondering why you see a lot of CA <-> NV events, it's because this is how CA mobilizes our blue state power)
North Carolina:

In five polls released since Saturday, Cunningham continues to lead. (Source: newsobserver.com/news/politics-…)

Help bring it home for Cunningham and Biden with these phone banks today and tomorrow: mobilize.us/nc2020victory/…

I want you to recall that feeling of going to bed in disbelief on Nov 8, 2016 & then waking up Nov 9, 2016 with that sick feeling in your gut.

Now ask yourselves what you would’ve done differently those days Before 11/8/2016—

What are you doing now?
1/7

Remember your worst days of outrage as Trump & his enablers obliterated rule of law & decimated our democracy the past 4 years.

The hashtags #VoteBlue & #VoteThemOut are literally life or death for you & anyone you care about.

What would’ve you done those days before 11/8/2016?
Yesterday, I phonebanked for PA & FL.
This morning for TX & this afternoon for MI.
Tomorrow for NC.

I Hate talking on the phone—but this election is too important.

Undecided? Slow to #vote? Tired of #GOTV? Know someone who is? 

Here are articles on a wide range of issues -- from border policy to #racism & the Middle East to the #Holocaust. Pieces aimed at #Orthodox, Jews of Color, #Republicans, fans of Abe Lincoln, & many others.🧵👇
.@JoeBiden: "2 years after the Tree of Life shooting, the world feels dark. We must be the light." jta.org/2020/10/27/opi…

"By casting our ballots, we can, in other words, pray with our feet — and in the process, reclaim America's soul."

2 dozen senior Trump admin officials fear he'll use gov't power to refuse to leave office or "create favorable terms for negotiating his exit." They worry too about foreign adversaries using the internet to undermine the election. thread> nytimes.com/2020/10/30/opi…
NYT sources: most senior officials w/ Senate-confirmed jobs, regular access to Trump & highest-level briefings; some still serving. Several are currently in Intel, law enforcement, nat'l security & are focused on violent, far-right white supremacy groups encouraged by Trump.
Officials: "in 1st debate, when the president offered one of the most astonishing performances of any leader in modern American history--bullying, ridiculing, manic, boasting, fabricating, relentlessly interrupting & talking over his opponent: that’s really him.... That’s Trump.”

From my #PhoneBanking session a couple weeks ago. I SAVED A VOTE by helping Wendy fix her incorrect registration! These last two weekends are the most crucial for #GOTV efforts. Sign up and make calls starting today. We need you. thelastweekends.org/doit Let’s get to work! #Vote
This stuff ain’t easy or the most comfortable for lots of folks. It’s not always comfortable for me. I’ve been hung up on many times, sometimes I feel awkward and ridiculous making calls, but then I help someone and I know there are thousands of others doing this work with me.
There’s more at stake right now than our comfort. These calls literally can save us from four more years of Trump. Know that thousands of people are making these phone calls with you and turning out thousands more Biden votes. If you’ve resisted because you’re uncomfortable......
