THREAD: Let’s talk about the incidents of antisemitism we are seeing right now.
A key part of our work is combatting #hatecrime, specifically by strengthening hate crime laws and improving data collection. In addition to the immeasurable harm done to individuals and their families, hate crimes devastate entire communities.
Despite a well-documented problem of significant underreporting, federal hate crime data does help us understand trends.

No spine, no #journalism ethics. @SkyNews serves as the mouth piece of Israel's army, now busy committing #GenocideinGaza.

We better be seeing some serious disciplinary action.
At least they didn't straight out call for #genocide like @Newsweek, because that's how low the standards are.


And here disciplinary action is not enough, a criminal investigation for #HateCrime and #IncitementToGenocide.
And since I'm on a roll, let's talk about the @CNN apologia for #genocide.

The elephant in the room is that the perpetrator is a POC.

White supremacy is not white vs. POC. White supremacy is a system that can use all of us to oppress POC.

1/
My childhood bullies were mostly POC.

It’s been a long journey of learning, listening, and sharing, to stand in solidarity with the ppl who have harmed me, & the ppl I have harmed.

You can’t begin to dismantle white supremacy without doing that work.

2/
Hatred can grow from the ignorance, but compassion and solidarity can grow from the learning.

Blaming Trump 4 every hate crime frees us from looking into the mirror, and holds us back from doing the real work.

The police response to the #Atlanta shootings reminds me of what happened in Chapel Hill 5 years ago -- with a mad rush to exonerate the shooter of a racial or ethnic bias before we know the facts. /1

#AsianAmericans #HateCrime

And what is the sole basis for this conclusion? The statement of the killer. Why enable the shooter to craft the narrative he chooses to explain his attention-seeking violent tirade? /2 cbsnews.com/news/atlanta-s…
I can certainly understand the desire to calm the nerves of Asian-Americans, but these premature statements don't do that when they are in such contrast to the pattern of the killings. /3 washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/03…

Recently I came across a research paper on witch hunts which referred to “people” throughout and provided no analysis on why women were more likely to be targeted. I did a brief thread on it.
So I decided to revisit Larner’s book and remind my self of her work. Tragically she died at only age 49 and her book always stayed with me.
A study of this phenomenon is important because it can explain so much else. A belief in witchcraft became a State ideology. Laws were enacted to prosecute “witches” . Much like the new State Religion “Gender Ideology” & #HateCrime laws to root out unbelievers.

❗️As disturbing reports of execution of Armenian captives by Azerbaijan forces emerge, a noteworthy piece of news went unnoticed.

#ECHR gave its final verdict against #Azerbaijan in the case condemning its government in sponsoring hatred against Armenians. How it happened?👇👇
Background: Azerbaijan's military officer Ramil Safarov and Armenian officer Gurgen Margaryan (pictured below) have been attending a #NATO-organised language training course in Budapest in 2004, ironically called Partnership for Peace.
A few days before the end of the course, Azerbaijan’s Safarov creeps into Gurgen Margaryan's room and murders him in his sleep (!), with sixteen blows of an axe ‼️

Safarov is arrested and sentenced to life in prison in #Hungary .

I took the day off yesterday. Today I learned that one of our #AsylumSeekers clients, a #translatina from El Salvador, was stabbed 14 times and nearly killed in an act of hate. My staff didn't tell me until today, because they knew I needed a day off. This is the job.
Hatred towards #immigrants and #transphobia, legitimized by our government leaders, makes the US a place where often times #AsylumSeekers don't find the safety they seek and desperately need.
If you're a black, LGBTQ, or Latinx immigrant, often times you experience racism, hatred, and violence in the US. The govt lies, calling you rapists and murderers, and making others believe your life matters less. That you can then be killed with impunity.

LONG #GaPol THREAD: The #HateCrime bill was just passed out of committee, but sadly not before it was hijacked by GOP members & the LG to include specific protections for police.

For people who are normal & don't like watching committee livestreams like I do... here's a recap:
Sen. Cowsert introduced the new version of the bill, which removed a few things (like a tracking database) and added protections for "first responders."

Included in that is, of course, police officers.
Sen. Jones (a black atty) asked several questions about why this was suddenly so important to Cowsert (a white atty) and other Repubs. Cowsert explained that the #AhmaudArbery case and other recent events have made it clear we need to do something.

If that is the gratitude of the African male, I would hate to experience his ungratefulness. #DirectProvision irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/i…
Mfaco couldn’t apply for asylum on arrival as he’d signed an agreement that he would study here.
Then remembered someone threw a stone at him in 2004 & a security guard in a Cape Town mall "made nasty comments about my appearance. It was very frightening.”
irishtimes.com/life-and-style…
As an example of how "awful" DP is, he relates story from Knockalisheen DP in Clare. Mfaco revealed he was gay to his Albanian roommate who "went on about how boys are supposed to be with girls and all I could think was ‘what have I done to deserve this?’”

[Thread] Since Trump has officially been #Impeached there are several things that need to happen immediatly:
1. Since he is no longer President The White House & @Twitter should remove @realDonaldTrump access to the @POTUS Twitter account.
2.Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) should be sworn is as President since she rightfully won the 2016 election. She can choose her VP.

3. Trump needs to be charged and arrested for his crimes. #LockHimUp

#Impeached #impeachment
4. President Hillary Clinton(@HillaryClinton) should reverse every Executive order and bill Trump approved while in office

5. 2020 elections should be put on hold and Hillary Clinton gets to serve 2 Terms..

6. The next elections should be held in 2024.

Yesterday, @COAttnyGeneral announced its partnership with @ADLMtnStates and a coalition against hate, outlining a multi-part response to #HateCrime.

Part of the response to #HateCrime is to be our best authentic selves, sharing our stories, and being proud of our heritage.

According to experts, "more than half of all victims of hate crimes never file a complaint with the authorities in the first place." Indeed, the fact that some authorities report zero hate crimes suggests that underreporting is a real issue. nytimes.com/2019/11/12/us/…

There is so much wrong with this story.

nytimes.com/2019/06/12/us/…
I'm an operations editor which means now when I see a story, I think about
-how did the story go from pitch to Tweet
-what that process was like
-what worked and didn't work in that process
-and what it means now that this story has a URL
The story addresses a good q: What defines a hate crime & what does it mean when someone is charged with a hate crime? It focuses on NC's #hatecrime statute in the wake of Hicks' sentence for the murders of Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, & Deah Shaddy Barakat

One of the first online discussion boards I wandered into in the mid-1990s focused on the liberal monopoly and bias in US media - and that was 15 years before #AndrewBreitbart entered the scene. And years before #Breitbart, I and many others were pointing out the many... (1/10)
...tricks the #MSM use to advance the liberal narrative - which reached a crescendo in 2006-2007 during the #DukeLacrosse #HateHoax. What those 3 boys suffered as a result of the media's bias and bloodlust was 100x worse than even what #CovingtonCatholic boys suffered...

In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.

Dwarf-Tossing is a #hatecrime. I've had people stop me on the street & try to pick me up, threaten "tossing the midget" if I didn't smile/laugh at their hate speech or pose for a photo they're taking AGAINST my consent. @maziehirono pls ask her about this. motherjones.com/politics/2018/…
I realize a lot of folks don't realize what I experience on a daily basis. There is NOWHERE I go that I'm not constantly attune to my safety needs as a little person #DwarfTossingIsAHateCrime
When I worked at the White House, Secret Service were amazing at making sure people didn't grab me, take photos of me against my consent, or harass me when walking on Pennsylvania Avenue. #DwarfTossingIsAHateCrime
