So fucking over the moon to have met & introduce @MeTooMVMT founder @TaranaBurke tonight for her @WUD_DLS lecture at @UWMadison. My voice broke as I read my intro bc of how powerful & important Ms. Burke’s work is to me & the world.
Tonight Ms. Burke told us about her origins working with black girl survivors. She reminded us that the work has ALWAYS about survivors, healing & ending sexual violence NOT merely about “bringing down powerful men”
Her talk was moving. She encouraged all @UWMadison students to claim this space. She said this is YOUR campus. You DESERVE to be safe here & free from sexual & racial violence. Until we are all safe here the university is not living up to its mission.

Looks like @vademocrats have figured out how to have a high tech lynching of their leading African American politician, @LGJustinFairfax, while preserving the (political) lives of blackface racists @GovernorVA and @MarkHerringVA.
This is exactly the "justice" about which African Americans rightly complain.

All three office-holders stand accused of acts that -- had they been known before their election -- would have likely kept them from office. One, @MarkHerringVA, ADMITS the charge w/out question.
A second one, @GovernorVA, admitted the charge and apologized but has subsequently denied the charge.

The third, the only African American of the group, @LGJustinFairfax, has firmly and completely denied the charge.

I’m willing to bet the very same liberal democrats who were extremely reckless and vicious with #brettkavanuagh on uncorroborated claim with use the very same energy to help and defend #RobertMueller

Liberal Democrats use & destroy #MeTooMovement for their own political gain.
2/ Futher to above:
We are all aware of high profile #MuellerInvestigation for 18 months (much more than #brettkavanuagh)
This allegation of Sexual Assault will NOT GET SAME 24/7 coverage from

Basically every Media/Hollywood
3/ IMO #RobertMueller MUST be afforded all Protections not offered by lynch mob Democrats, Media and Hollywood to #BrettKavanaugh

-presumption of innocence
-no rush to judgement
-rule of law

But I don’t have to worry - these will be ONLY talking points in Media not #MeToo

To #metoo advocates:
1. should Miranda Rights (right against self incrimination) be overturned?
2. Should police no longer be required to obtain judge’s order to wiretap or search

By removing these rights we can put more Guilty in prison.

Rights > mob rule

2/ we’ve built a just society where parents of murdered child see confessed murderer walk free because confession obtained w/o administrating Miranda Rights and DNA evidence thrown out for lack of warrant — these parents leave court room alone heartbroken w/o mob at court doors.
3/ the point of my above 2 tweets is that #Metoomovement must be supported and must be robust but never, never, never at the expense of the Bill of Rights or trampling on one’s individual rights — nothing is greater than those rights is a free and just society.

#MorganFreeman. 1. In 2017, "the actor was targeted by "coordinated, pro-Kremlin social-media attacks" after criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin in an online video."…
2. "the online attacks against Freeman follow a "classic pattern" seen in previous, anti-NATO, social-media campaigns out of Russia that were aimed at manipulating Western public opinion and influencing public debate."
3. "We have been attacked. We are at war... Imagine the KGB officer taking revenge... on his former enemy, the US... Using social media to spread propaganda... he convinces people to distrust the media...and he wins," said #MorganFreeman in the video.
