1/ @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega really disappointed you had this guest on a show peddling controversial theories that weaponize the failures of the #criminaljusticesystem #racism and #massincarceration against survivors of #domesticviolence and #coercivecontrol.
2/#VAWAs failures lie not only in its non-holistic, non-systemic approach to addressing #DV—not as #coercivecontrol and not in coordination with child safety risks, as it should be—but also in its methodology, assumptions, implementation etc. @thetakeaway @tanzinavega
3/Just because #VAWA is flawed doesn’t mean you throw the baby out with the bath water. Her theories are dangerous to #survivors and hide its misogynist underpinnings as they center #abuser needs over #survivor and #child #safety, #stability #strength. @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega

Democrats made the black community an offer they couldn't refuse in the 1960's; end the century-long campaign of sadistic terrorism AND give cradle-to-grave welfare... if they'd vote Democrat. Thus began LBJ's era of #PlantationPolitics – drugs, broken families and re-dependence.
Lyndon B. Johnson, so-called "Master of the Senate", was outmaneuvered by Republicans on the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 & 1960. By desegregating schools in the lawless Democrat south, Eisenhower rallied bipartisan support from northern Democrat senators despite LBJ's vile racism.
John F. Kennedy continued Dwight D. Eisenhower's legacy of Civil Rights until that fateful day when the Bush-owned CIA assassinated our President and a complicit LBJ assumed figurehead power. But it was too late... by 1964, the national momentum was irreversible: veto-proof bill.
