Using @SenTedCruz’s Halloween meme as an educational tool for the complexity (note sarcasm) of the GQP #midterms ideological agenda. A reminder of the Cruz Zodiac Killer memes existence is warranted here.
Let’s go, a 🧵: Cruz did the Spirit Halloween meme of Biden, blaming him for
1. @tedcruz why do you hate @POTUS’s aviators game? Because you can’t pull them off? Or your wayfairers, per @GQMagazine? Ouch.

2. The ice cream. Remember when you had some on a stop through MY TOWN of #Milwaukee and your bizarre ice cream eating strategy became meme fodder?
I SURE DO. @WisDems

"I think the way that you juxtaposed the actual people who were victims with the people who were the perpetrators of this voter suppression was nothing short of brilliant." - @CkHoffler, #CiviRights attorney to @RevJJackson & @RPCoalition, on Vigilante gregpalast.com/ck-hoffler-we-…
"And then...to have the country understand the history of #BrianKemp and his family, being the family who brought slavery to the state of #Georgia… it was also something that was masterfully done." - @CkHoffler on Vigilante gregpalast.com/ck-hoffler-we-…
"I think everyone needs to see this movie. It’s not just about #Georgia, but it’s relevant to what’s happening in this country today." - @CkHoffler discusses Palast's new movie, Vigilante: Georgia's Vote Suppression Hitman, on @KPFARadio gregpalast.podbean.com/e/georgia-voti…

The writing about the past were never about the past, it was always about the future/now/these times we’re all living in.

Time Travel is Fun.

The future took all the data needed back to the past as far back as they could & preserved the truth of what the future held ImageImage
So that each generation could do everything that needed to be done in time to counter evil, the light would pass down the information from generation to generation to those trustworthy ..
which is the exact same thing that’s been done with wrestling & mostly every other layer

Taking a break from the #CapitolSiege to ask everyone a question I ponder ALL the time: Which urban neighborhoods bordering major waterfronts offer safe *pedestrian* access to the actual WATER—and preferably to long linear parks offering > 1000’/300m of continuous water access?
I've spent MANY hours looking at Google Maps for ways to walk to the river from residential neighborhoods in cities all over the U.S. Access is TERRIBLE. I'm sooo envious of #Vancouver, BC. It's frustrating how cut off we are by seawalls, railroads, industry, private homes... /2
Hood River is an incredible town, and it’s the undisputed windsurfing capital of Earth. But, just like ALL of Oregon’s Columbia River towns, I-84 completely severs all possible pedestrian connections between residential areas and the river itself. /3

While the rest of the nation had massive voter turnout in 2016, in parts of #Wisconsin, voting fell off a cliff. In Black-majority #Milwaukee, turnout plummeted from 66% to 56% of the voting-age population. gregpalast.com/wisconsin-eats…
University of Wisconsin professors Michael DeCrescenzo & Kenneth Mayer wanted to find out about the mysterious massive drop in turnout. They conducted an extraordinary survey, contacting thousands of non-voters directly, asking registrants why they did not, or could not, vote.
They discovered that 28,000 citizens in just two cities, Milwaukee and Madison, were blocked by Wisconsin's newly enacted ID requirement.

Take a look at this chart from the study. The ID law was three times as likely to block African Americans as whites. gregpalast.com/wisconsin-eats… Image

@UWM This is the pathetic response from University of #Wisconsin, #Milwaukee about senior lecturer retired @usairforce Lt Col Betsy Schoeller's disgusting #Facebook post about Vanessa Guillen's death. #VanessaGuillen #JusticeForVanessaGullien #FireBetsySchoeller @ProtectRDfnders
@UWM #Facebook posts are NOT PRIVATE. In #Ohio, college professors don't get tenure if they talk about "controversial topics" like mental illness concerns or #homeless individuals' #CivilRights on social media. If you don't have a #SocialMedia policy, you should. @ProtectRDfnders
@UWM @ProtectRDfnders: Army soldier Vanessa Guillen's horrific murder been a trigger for countless #veterans suffering from #PTSD from #military sexual #trauma. A reprehensible #Facebook post from fellow veteran Betsy Schoeller has further exacerbated it. #MilitarySexualTrauma

Try to do my best linking good source material from #Milwaukee describing the #SexTrafficking search and rescue that happened from Monday June 22nd thru Wednesday June 24th in this thread.
First, this story serves as a "ground floor" so you can get a general idea of what went down, who was involved, and what the issues are:

Missing Black Girls Found After Cops Don’t Issue Amber Alert Amid Sex Trafficking Suspicions: Report
newsone.com/3965112/milwau…
The story tells us that two teen girls went missing Sunday, but didn't meet Amber Alert criteria, according to Milwaukee PD.
Local photographer, Amanda Schlicher Press offered her own account of the case, which culminated in the reported safe rescue of the girls on Tuesday night.

Why is the MillerCoors event in #Milwaukee categorized under Politics?🤔
1-Interesting part of the story. Til now, we still don’t know much about the shooter. I suspect it’s b/c the shooter is a POC. If the shooter was white there would be wall-to-wall coverage. There would a huge push for gun control and Trump would be blamed.

I’m glad to see you all at this march, but I wish the context of it didn’t exist. I’m inspired by the young folks here & around the country who’ve mobilized and organized around the issue of gun violence prevention
