Oct 14—Beirut, #Lebanon
#Iran-backed Hezbollah-Amal protesters are demanding the removal of Judge Bitar, in charge of investigating the August 2020 Beirut port explosion.
Up to 6 dead & 60 injured reported so far.

(Two minute compilation of today's violence)
Periodic reminder that the people of #Lebanon are against #Iran's malign influence in their country, especially through terrorist groups such as Hezbollah and Amal. Image

"But we will continue building coal plants at home for decades." Just like Western countries who no longer fund fossil fuel plants in developing countries (see World Bank policy), but will continue to burn fossil fuels at home for decades (e.g., Germany, Belgium). #Hypocrisy
So the big, powerful, rich countries who have been profiting from fossil fuels for decades (or centuries) are now proudly thumping their chests because they'll stop funding fossil fuels... in poor & developing countries. I find this sort of #greenwashing morally repugnant. /2
Think about it: Germany, one of the richest and most technologically advanced nations on the planet, says that they really, REALLY must burn coal until 2038. Because the economy, you know. But in the meantime we expect poor countries not to use ANY coal?/3 bbc.com/news/world-eur…

Participating in an online energy conference. The Norwegian speaker is going on about how rice farming is contributing to 10% greenhouse gases with a slide showing Indian rice farmers. Nothing on industrial meat farming though #hypocrisy
Oil production in 2022 is expected to see a 1.2 million bpd increase driven by Iran, Canada, Brazil & ahem, ahem *Norway*…..

But no rice growing for Indians!

I call this #ProtestantReasoning
Chinese energy expert panel is supposed to speak on how China will reconcile energy security with carbon neutrality. However the 1st speaker is basically admonishing the west & Japan for their “environmental hypocrisy”. Happens all the time 😂

📸🧵THE ONLY “PANDEMIC” IS A PANDEMIC OF HYPOCRISY🦠

The (powerful) people who have convinced you that draconian restrictions on your civil liberties are necessary to protect you from a killer pandemic are the same people who seem unconcerned about the rules themselves. More👇🏻 Image
The controlled and morally bankrupt politicians mandate you to wear dehumanising face coverings, whilst refusing to do the same because the rules don’t apply to them. The deadly pandemic differentiates between classes of citizens, apparently. But at least they have warning tape.. Image
They invoke war rhetoric as they demand you don’t leave your local area, raising panic and fear. Then they leave their own local areas at will. Why? Because, of course, they are politicians and the rules of the pandemic don’t apply to them. Image

More #Hypocrisy: 20+ years of hate and lies from @hrw @KenRoth @goldsteinricky etc targeting #Israel have fueled unprecedented & brutal #antisemitic attacks. Not legitimate criticism, but campaigns to destroy Jewish self-determination, exploiting the facade of #HumanRights
Pretending they did not know that @HRW-led hate campaigns would fuel #antisemitic attacks won't cut after 20+ years. @KenRoth and the fellow Israel eliminationists that he employs know exactly what they are doing.
@hrw @KenRoth and in the process of allying with top #antisemites as they play out personal issues with Jewish self-determination and sovereign equality (Israel), Roth, Goldstein and friends have destroyed the integrity of #HumanRights -- collateral damage.

Our #MentalHealth system uses force on at least half of all inpatients.

One ‘justification’ I’ve heard from psychs is this:

“If we didn’t use compulsory treatment we’d be neglecting people.”

Is that so?

Let me call out this dreadful argument on #neglect... (a thread)

1/7 Graphic with text. It says: “if we don’t hurt you, we’
Check your #paternalism.

Thinking you know what’s best for others is paternalism. How can you possibly know? Many of us have healed without you.

Try trusting that your patients are the experts on their own lives.

That’s not neglect, it’s respect.

2/7
Check your #hypocrisy.

The mental health system is already a master of neglect.

You ignore trauma, abuse, homelessness, poverty & other social issues.

You don’t offer talking therapies, peer support or crisis respite. Just meds & shocks.

That’s actually neglect. Sheesh.

While I appreciate it won't have been everywhere, in my town GP practices have been doing flu jabs then COVID jabs round the clock *for months* while offering phone and F2F appointments, safely, when needed.

WTF does @NHSEngland think has been going on?

england.nhs.uk/wp-content/upl…
Powerful response from Local Medical Committee to @NHSEngland's tone-deaf letter:



Blaming GPs for *its own policies*
england.nhs.uk/gp/digital-fir…

which it clearly intends to pursue
gponline.com/nhs-england-pl…

...is the height of #hypocrisy.

But nothing new.
Also this 👇 and rest of [Thread]:



Too many forget that @NHSEngland is NOT 'the NHS in England' but rather the #NHS #CommissioningBoard - as the letter about its renaming in 2013 made crystal clear:

1)
A new @nytimes piece by #Iran apologist/lobbyists @AzadehMoaveni & @sussantweets.

Their objective: pushing the Biden administration to lift sanctions off Iran’s regime while neglecting the mullahs' atrocious record of women’s rights violations.

#Hypocrisy
2)
We are talking about #Iran, a country ruled by a regime that treats women and girls as second-class citizens.

ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/…
3)
In Iran execution by stoning is permitted under the regime’s laws. Men are placed into the ground to their waist. Women to their neck. You are free to go if you survive the stoning.

For women, buried to their neck, it is impossible to flee & stones will only hit their heads.

Is it not astounding that @Ludvigsson announces that he will "refrain from continuing covid research after threats and hatred." I am actually dumbfounded. In #Sweden experts who have made mistake after mistake when criticized turn themselves into victims.

svt.se/nyheter/lokalt…
It is a classic tool to deflect the reality of the damage these experts have done and to almost engage in revisionism in the hope that people will forget. During the Spring @AnnLinde went out in force shouting "discrimination" and "bullying" when #Sweden`s #Nordic neighbours
closed their borders to #Sweden. They closed them to several other countries too. But when #Sweden closed its borders to #Norway they responded with grace and understanding. A Norwegian newspaper nailed it by stating that one has to tread very carefully when criticizing anything

4/ag Here's a solution for "experts on everything" looking for political solutions: Central Govt should #abolish the #APMC Act and the #ECA, along with the 3 new agri laws, and leave every State to make own Agricultural laws. Then they'll be responsible/ accountable to voters!
5/ag Subject to proviso, that States cannot stop inter-state trade in agricultural goods, which framers of the constitution, correctly put under Union Govt's purview. Nor can States force CG to take any action which is responsibility of State, nor obstruct anything in Union list!

Trying to make a list of all of the claims about #hypocrisy and #doublestandards I've seen this week. Let me know what I'm missing (1/6)

#CapitolRiot #BigTechCensorship #impeachment
(1) From the left: Law enforcement was much more severe toward BLM than toward the White supremacists at the Capitol riot. Alternatively phrased, if the rioters on Wednesday were BLM supporters / were POC, there would be many more wounded/dead/arrested. (2/6)
(2) From the right: When BLM protested/rioted/looted, Dems and the media claimed it's not violent to destruct property, but then when Trump supporters damaged property at the Capitol, suddenly it does count as violence. (3/6)

#firstamendment #trump #trumptreason #traitors #insurrection #republicans #maga #thugs #racists #whitesupremacy #hypocrisy

Inciting a rebellion and insurrection are not supported by First Amendment right to free speech.
For example, you cannot falsely yell “fire” in a crowded movie theater.
Taking a knee during the anthem is protected though, but racists and bigots and NFL owners were furious.

“If a picture is worth a thousand words a video is worth Billions.” #doublestandards #america #hypocrisy #whitesupremacy #racism #maga #domesticterrorism #trumptreason Tell the truth @attorneycrump 💥✊🏾.

In common parlance the term prima facie is used to describe the apparent
nature of something upon initial observation. In legal practice the term generally is used to describe two things: the presentation of sufficient evidence by a civil claimant to support the legal claim (a prima facie case), or a piece of evidence itself (prima facie evidence)
Evidence is clear. We have receipts.

This @nytimes article is disgracefully deceptive. It is pure #propaganda serving to manufacture consent for #COVID19 #vaccines by deceiving about what science tells us about the #HerdImmunity threshold and the vaccine's effect on transmission.
nytimes.com/2020/12/24/hea…
The @nytimes presents the figure of 60% as the most conservative of estimates, going up to 90% (which, absurdly, would put #SARSCoV2 at the contagiousness level of measles) when in fact scientists have also estimated that the #HerdImmunity threshold could be far lower.
For example, this preprint study estimated that the #HerdImmunity threshold could be as low as the range of 10% - 20%:

It looks like I'm back. Let's start by diving into some trash journalism from infamous Victorian 'journalist' @rachelbaxendale. A thread ⬇️#auspol #springst #ThisisNotJournalism

theaustralian.com.au/nation/politic…
.@rachelbaxendale has written a total of 7 articles on Nancy Yang this year! Yang is merely an electorate officer and a part time one at that. Such an intense focus on a partime staffer is unheard of. This is clearly dog whistling nonsense. #auspol #springst #ThisisNotJournalism
The article presents ZERO and I mean zero evidence that Yang has any links to the Chinese Communist Party. It is mentioned in the first paragraph and never touched on again. Trash journalism. #auspol #springst #ThisisNotJournalism

A #Stasi is always a Stasi! Olaf Neitsch (aka "Timmi Allen" from @bellingcat) is still hunting civilians, breaking privacy rules and offering his pro-nazi friends a bounty for the private address of someone he considers "the enemy of Bellingcrap"!
And then he cannot find a better argument than "guilt by association" - with #KGB and... you never guess! #Putin 🤣🤣🤣

Something is definitely lose in that head of him, don't you think? 😉
Let's see what Olaf said about his working experience in the interview to @RFERL - the whole interview is here: rferl.org/a/from-stasi-t…
