1/18 Ik krijg hier een #Nashville déjà vu gevoel van.
Je kunt mensen niet verbieden om op basis van hun religie homoseksualiteit verwerpelijk te vinden.
Juridisch kun je er ook weinig mee zolang niet wordt opgeroepen tot geweld e.d.
2/ Het valt mij op dat zichzelf liberaal achtende mensen vaak illiberaal worden als ze geconfronteerd worden met dit soort religieuze onverdraagzaamheid. Maar je kunt (religieuze) mensen niet dwingen om liberale mainstream opvattingen aan te nemen.
3/ Dit gedrag popt vooral op rond de islam. Veel mensen hebben kennelijk de illusie dat je met integratiebeleid van immigranten doorsnee burgers kunt maken. Maar dat kan niet. Daarom moet je ook heel voorzichtig zijn met de immigratie van mensen met extreem illiberale opvattingen

So this thread happened a year ago yesterday.

I remember writing it after listening to leaked audio of children crying in detention camps, and the workers trying to console them, then breaking down in tears as my own child slept nearby.

20 million views later, some thoughts:
1. We’re still trying to do the thing I was talking about: deterring desperate migrants through harsh, inhumane, and immoral detention conditions. The numbers of people imprisoned have skyrocketed in the past year, with no end in sight. The goal remains the same: Deterrence.
2. Most of the people who spread this think it’s me dunking on Obama or owning the libs. It’s not. The message, which I might have delivered more clearly, is non-partisan.

Deterring migrants through cruelty, imprisonment, and death is America’s official border security policy.

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

Draadje over wat de initiatiefnemers van de #NashvilleVerklaring volgens mij op het oog hebben. Volgens mij slaan veel analyses de plank enigszins mis, bv de RTL die spreekt over 'geradicaliseerde christenen' #Nashville
De Nashvilleverklaring is aan de ene kant weinig nieuws, de afwijzing van homorelaties in orthodox-protestantse kringen is zo oud als de weg naar Geneve (en vergeet niet dat dit een kleine rechterflank is van de kerken waar alleen mannen zoiets mogen ondertekenen).
Aan de andere kant is het wel degelijk een stap terug, in NL zijn de afkeurende protestanten over het algemeen van mening dat 'je het wel mag zijn maar niet mag doen.' In deze verklaring wordt gesuggereerd dat het omarmen van een homo-identiteit

#Midterms2018 : plus de 39 millions d’électeurs ont voté par anticipation. C'est un record historique : en 2014, ce chiffre était de 20,5 millions. v/@ElectProject
#Midterms2018 : dans tous le pays, les chiffres de la participation le jour du vote semblent aussi largement au-dessus de la normale, et ils dépassent même parfois ceux enregistrés en 2016. Pour rappel, la participation lors des midterms est généralement inférieure de 20 points.
#Midterms2018 : à #Nashville, la participation est déjà supérieure à celle de 2016. La mobilisation dans ce bastion démocrate du très conservateur #Tennessee est essentielle pour que @PhilBredesen conserve une chance d'être élu Sénateur.

Thread: Some rare good immigration news came today. Last yr, as part of a deal to get Iraq off the list of countries in Muslim Ban 1.0, ICE began rounding up 100s of Iraqi nationals who had old, unexecuted deportation orders—nearly all of whom came as refugees. #NashvilleKurds /1
Nashville is home to the largest population of Kurds outside of #Kurdistan. At least 12 and as many as 20 #NashvilleKurds were targeted. ICE sought to detain these men in far-flung, for-profit prisons and deport them without hearing to torture/death /2
But @ACLUofMichigan @mjschlanger @CivilRightsCH Code Legal, and partners across the country stepped up and filed class-action habeas litigation that successfully halted these deportations, given people time to find lawyers and file for fear-based protection, and seek bonds /3
