Although I think that pairings and counter-narratives are one way to #DisruptTexts, lately I have been wondering to what extent such a pairing still centers Whiteness and dominant narratives.
I've become increasingly uncomfortable with the dichotomy that pairings and counter-narratives suggests, as if the value of the "diverse" text is in its positionality to the dominant narrative. #DisruptTexts
I mean, you don't have to teach #TheHateUGive WITH [insert canonical text]. You could, you know, just #TeachHateUGive. So many texts we would consider as part of pairings or counter-narratives can stand more than well enough on their own. #justsayin #DisruptTexts

My @writingproject's Social Justice study group is underway. We are reading @IjeomaOluo's 'So You Want to Talk About Race' (highly recommend).

Today was our third meeting, and it's wonderful to have a group of colleagues invested in doing this study together. 1/
I left w/gratitude for this space. BUT lately this gratitude has been accompanied by deep disappointment that this work isn't a priority for all Ts.

Now I know that there are probably many Ts who are also upset at the current racist, xenophobic, homophobic hatred in society. 2/
But just being upset doesn't. actually. change. anything. We have to DO something.

And I know there are probably Ts who are doing the work inside their classrooms but may not be actively sharing this on social media and otherwise. 3/

Thank God for Halloween candy. #JustSayin
Also today in stress eating. And I’m about to bake a pumpkin bread. In case you’re keeping track. 😜
The pumpkin bread never happened. But be assured there was frying of shallots in bacon grease.

This is the critical element of social media based info ops. The data analytics allows for real time adjustments in messaging, creating a sort of evolutionary algorithm for influence, and providing the velocity that makes social media info ops unique. Surveillance driven IO
This is great. This is how the IREA was able to iterate so rapidly on topics. They did daily task sheets to create the stories and themes for the IO. They also had existing guidelines on what to do when targeting specific audiences.
There is a really great look into how the IREA did their tasking.

The two politicians that are the most desperate for Brexit are Jacob Rees-Mogg, a man with holdings all over the place, and Nigel Farage, a trader from London's banking district.
Brexit takes us out of the EU just as the EU's directive on tax avoidance kicks in...
#JustSayin
It won't be (decent) remainers laughing at your life getting even harder. It'll be these chaps...
I mean this is Jacob Rees-Mogg's dad's book. I feel like maybe that might be cause to question his motives. Or is it too subtle.

If you are on Twitter shouting “Blue Wave!” but aren’t actually using your platform to retweet and amplify the messages of Democratic candidates, then you’re missing the point pretty badly. #JustSayin
Obviously donating & volunteering as well! But my point is that our medium is Twitter and all Dem candidates have Twitter accounts. There’s really no excuse for not amplifying them.
I’m 👀 looking at you, check-mark accounts with high follower counts.

You’ve been blessed with a tremendous platform. In the final months leading to November, please don’t just Tweet about Trump. Amplify Dems. Focus on the solution.

Who thd fuck is Scotty Hughes? 😆 Seriously, who the fuck is Scotty Hughes? @Trumpscokedealr Trumpscokedealr What say you Gary?
What does @eugenegu have to say about that as a “smart leftwinger”? I’m looking for the elusive “smart leftwinger” to have a real debate...... how about it Eugene? 😆
I think maybe Eugene says Tennessee ain’t for him. 😆 #JustSayin

Democrats want to subvert a lawful election by the people and the media helps spread the #DNC lies. thehill.com/homenews/house…
One of the top #DNC operatives casting smears for ratings is @maddow She knowingly and dishonestly claims that republican sentiment that #Democrats want to remove @potus from office is preposterous. newyorker.com/magazine/2018/…
On cue with every move President Trump makes, the #Democrats and #DNC media are ready and waiting to spin and manufacture hysteria in order to fill the airwaves and internet with any fiction that will help their socialist leaders regain power. .@POTUS washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns…

I really hope every single corporation that marched in #LondonPride2018 today will demand that the organisers explain why their trans staff were made to march behind an anti-trans hate group. #justsayin'
If you are part of an LGBT employee group at any of these companies, ask your employer to take this up with #PrideInLondon .
If you are @stonewalluk and any of these companies are Diversity Champions or enter the WEI, ask them what they did to protect and safeguard their trans employees at #PrideInLondon .

1. Quick Friday evening thread on some things that were released today from Grassleys office. Some good, some that make me angry. Off we go!
2. On January 25, 2018, Grassley sent a letter to Wray asking LOTS of questions about the text messages of our two favorite FBI staffers, Strzok and Page. In it, he questions the messages, and also asks for answers on whether the Justice Dept considered a special counsel (cont)
3. ..for the Clinton investigation. He also questions McCabe and the timing of his recusal, and transmitting government records on non-government systems. Please read this letter. It is compelling. judiciary.senate.gov/download/grass…

A thread to accompany this video I just finished on Felix Sater. Just when you thought it couldn't get more odd, in comes information that leaves you shaking your head. Please watch the video as well, it helps me:
1. Background: Felix Sater is a longtime friend of Trump attorney Michael Cohen. Since childhood, friend. Note: (The more I research the more I fear Cohen is a bad dude.. #justsayin )
2. In the 90's, he was implicated (and later convicted) of stock fraud. He was "converted" into a serious US intelligence asset in 1998, with ties to then State Attorney LORETTA LYNCH, who spoke about him directly in the questioning for her nomination. judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
