I've always been a HUGE Rand Paul Fan, and his father, Ron Paul.
@RandPaul @RonPaul-

Both are true Patriots who stand up for what they believe in.

Folks, this is the best interview I've seen Rand Paul- he's relentless, calls out the #DeepState & calls Brennan a Communist.
Rand, in almost ten minutes of explosive commentary, fires shots at the #DeepState
Reminds me of his dad, Ron Paul,exposing former VP/CIA Director George Herbert Walker Bush for his Cocaine Trafficking pre-Iran Contra in #Mena #Arkansas when Clinton was Governor

1/87-In 2016 @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism "woke" me to the massive corruption in our government:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS (#Globalists)

VS

WE THE PEOPLE (Patriots & @POTUS)

#MAGA #QAnon #GreatAwakening #WalkAway
2/87-This is going to be a LONG thread, for those in a hurry... I recommend the "Agenda Explained" series by @RockingMrE:

3/87-I'd like to start by saying I'm NOT an expert on the #NWO. I'm simply a Patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why... as I listened to @realDonaldTrump speak about Globalism, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.

General Lee was brilliant….
but did you know his #2 guy George Pickett was a no-kidding genius?

What he was to Calvary, Patton was to Tanks.

And like Patton….Pickett finished Dead Last in his class at West Point.
Always getting into trouble.

At West Point, Pickett was a loser
Too much of a party guy and always getting into trouble.

But when he got into the field
and away from prying eyes of Captains and Generals, he was AMAZING.

Army was smart enough at least to send Pickett out West.

📣Please sign this petition to Ban Semi-Automatic Rifles in the US!

📋Organized by Lela Tolajian @LelaTolajian, Teenage Activist for #guncontrol

change.org/p/ban-certain-…
📋This petition will be banning the same semi-automatic weapons that were first prohibited during the original Federal Assault Weapons Ban.

💥Now, when gun violence is running rampant in our country, when 96 innocent Americans are fatally shot every day...
...when countless citizens are forced to live their lives in fear—we know that it is not the time to stay silent, it is the time to act.

💥The deadliest shootings in US history were all committed using a semi-automatic rifle.

If it’s one thing I hate about the current times we are living in, it’s the need for attention. It’s why we have mass shootings and why we’ve seen a spike in school shootings. 24 hour news coverage of these events practically makes the perpetrators demigods. The next shooter
are almost always inspired by the actions of the previous one. We live in a time where one person filmed themselves eating tide pods for attention and no one thought “let me get this person some help” No! They thought “How can I top it” in order to get like and views on Social M.
Now think about why are kids shooting up schools? Hell I won’t even stop there, think about why do people in general commit mass shootings....currently? People are committing murders and are posting it online for the world to see in order to bring attention to themselves.

With yet another tragic mass shooting, the #GunControl debate will yet again take center stage.

One reason for the intractable nature of this debate? Deeply held moral & religious schemas like Christian nationalism. 1/8

@LandonSchnabel @PaulHRosenberg @jackmjenkins @JackSmithIV
Our working paper shows that Americans who mandate a close, symbiotic relationship btw Christianity & civil society are deeply opposed to federal gun control legislation. 2/8

Find the working paper here: osf.io/preprints/soca…
@socarxiv
Understanding Christian nationalism, as a particular religio-cultural style, is important to understanding opposition to gun control.

Gun rights, according to the Christian nationalism framework, are a God-given right. The US Constitution & 2nd Amendment are God-inspired. 3/8

I've posted a little bit about exploring Twitter threads as a new and emerging genre, and people have seemed interested in how that works (including some #HISDELA teachers and #ILAChat members), so here's a general overview!
First and foremost: the reasoning. Research shows that more and more people are getting their news from social media (journalism.org/2017/09/07/new…), which also means that more and more people are getting their news with a heavy dose of commentary.
Whether you agree with that or not...it's happening. And it's happening to our students. So our job is not to judge them or belittle them or shame them--our job is to meet them where and when they are and teach them.

1. Slender Man-by Lexy @PoliticallyRYT

In 2014 the 'legend’ of Slenderman drove two 12-year-old girls to try and kill their classmate. They stabbed her 19 times.

Where did Slenderman originate?

2. In 2009 there was a contest to create creepy edits using everyday settings. The internet created a meme from of a photoshopped picture. The meme is known as Slenderman.
3. Slenderman started off as a short story on the internet, in the community forum of a comedy website, Something Awful.

Like any ghost story told repeatedly, over the years the tale got taller, stories scarier, and the Internet more sophisticated.

I just wrote a letter to my congressmen using Democracy.io
It's interesting that the Democrat had the choice of using #GunControl for a topic.
For the two Republicans who pretend to represent me, I had to use #education as #GunReform wasn't an option.
(thread)
1. My letter started with:
Even Justice Scalia agreed that the 2nd Amendment does not extend to military weapons in the hands of civilians. More guns in schools just means more shootings and more deaths.

#NoGunsInSchools
2. I continued with:
For this reason, should it come to pass that guns will be put in schools, I will tender my resignation as a public school teacher in the state of Florida. A teacher in Parkland gave his life protecting his students.

Let's talk about the #NRA, fear tactics, and the manipulation of the American people.
Some folks in #WeResist were discussing fear tactics, "well-regulated militias", and the NRA in general. We're gonna dive into these topics in this thread.

First up, the #NRA, everytime a mass shooting happens, the NRA come out strong in defense of guns. We expect them to, after all, it's what they do. They call the gunman "crazy", they say that "crazy" people shouldn't have access to guns, etc.
2/
You don't necessarily have to be "crazy" to do a mass shooting. True enough that most of the people that have committed mass shootings are "crazy" but it's not something that is synonymous with being crazy. You just have to be evil enough to do it.

It's amazing the things that constantly click when you read as much about politics as I do. I particularly read about the
Guns
Or
Pay party and their corrupt practices. And you must see how so many things are linked. And at the centre, time and time again the NRA come up.
Now we know that most Republican Presidents support the NRA. But changed occurred around the assassination attempt on Reagan, almost killing press secretary James Brady. This in turn made activists of James and his wife Sarah which works result in the Brady Bill of Background
Checks. Reagan, a firm believer in the right to bear arms urged Congress to enact the Brady Bill. Around this time, there was a massive change in the direction of the #TheRepublican party, coincidence maybe, but the GOP began to blatantly be seen as the Guardians Of Privilege.

Since we all love stats, let me give a breakdown.
Roughly a third of American Citizens own a gun (assumed legally).

That is a lot right?

Good, we all agree. Let us proceed.
Roughly 2.6 million deaths in the US per year.
