@keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson It’s fine! I ended up gathering that. I blocked them. I’m already having a horrendous 24 hours within the M4A organizing movement, so I don’t have the energy for this debate.

Allow me to explain.
@keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson Essentially, I feel used up by the Medicare for All movement. I have personally knit over 350 #RedBerets to help unify the M4A community.

I strongly supported the electoral strategy. I have donated a HUGE sum of money for yarn, & to M4A candidate campaign. (1/?)
@keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson I donated many many times to @BernieSanders, then recently I donated to @ninaturner! I have donated to @RebeccaforWA to @CallForCongress and many other M4A candidates/champions.

I am not someone who believes we can afford to completely throw out electoral politics (2/?)

I’m so excited to begin gathering signatures for @WholeWashington #I1362!! Solidarity organizing is how we will achieve national improved Medicare for ALL!

We won’t get there by leaving strong efforts on all fronts out.

.@KennyBallentine understands this!
@ReddIsAri thank you!
When I say begin, I mean pick up the pace!We need 400K and though I have collected quite a few sheets of 20 signatures each, and also gotten them to small businesses to host (and hosted a petition bin, so I’m a pick up & drop off point), I still haven’t done enough!

I’m very saddened that there are still people running the ineffective and tired narrative that organizing locally somehow takes away from the national Medicare for All movement—that makes zero sense—I’ve been knitting for the M4A movement since fall of 2017, but nevertheless, 1/2

Knitting as a metaphor for healthcare justice organizing: hear me me out:-)

I’m reflecting on this misguided notion that local organizing can be separated from national M4A

I want to create a beret or hat, yes? Yes. That’s the objective.

I don’t just get to snap my fingers 1/2
I need to procure yarn, & needles. I have to choose the shade, yarn weight & pattern. Next I need to cast on the correct number of stitches. I don’t love to knit, purl, knit purl ribbing—it’s a pain in the ass. I’d rather be onto the body, but I don’t get to skip that part. Cont,
If I make a mistake in a complicated beret like brioche and I don’t notice til many rows later, I have a choice. I can tink (knit backwards) & fix the error or I can decide if it’s worth that time. After all, there is a movement to knit for, & we need Medicare for All Now! (Cont)
