My Remembrance Day thread debunk: #1 they did not die for your freedom. Had the borders of Europe been altered again, as they had many times before, not much would change for North America. We were not seriously threatened. Uboats in the St. Lawrence mainly focused on supplies.
#2 soldiers volunteered for a variety of reasons: a steady paycheck, adventure, misplaced paternalist fervour, and oh yes, they were forced to go eventually. They didn't go to save the lives of targeted minorities. It was nationalism. Stop saying they were selfless humanitarians.
#3 Canada did not go to stop a genocide. In fact, immigration policy at the time denied entry to refugee Jews and they were sent back to Germany to die in concentration camps. They fought to help Britain against the threat of violent expansionism.

Thread on Corbyn’s support for Putin and genocides: while we blithely rehearsed every year on Holocaust Memorial Day, parroting #NeverAgain. Did we mean it? A man who believes anti-Semitic terrorists Hamas & Hezbollah are his allies, may soon occupy No.10 cufi.org.uk/news/corbyn-di…
This is a man who personally took (not as head of state, as a private individual) £20k from the Iranian regime, Putin’s ally that sponsors Hezbollah terrorists who murder Jews in Israel, Arabs in Syria & Iraq, and believes in enforcing “sharia” as law timesofisrael.com/corbyn-defends…
This man’s excuse is “we must meet all sides”. Yet despite this excuse,he doesn’t. He boycotted Trump. He even boycotted @ChukaUmunna, yet happily befriends terrorists & President Xi of China (who also likes mass concentration camps. Sorry jews, but 🤷🏽‍♂️) theguardian.com/politics/2019/…

I’m getting rather tired of the equivocation around this Labour antisemitism issue, so here’s a thread for confused pundits & voters. Some smart people out there have been hoodwinked by dishonest political hacks, or are simply too tribal to accept the difference in the following:
People of any political persuasion must acknowledge:
1) Every party will have some policies you don’t like
2) Every party will also have rogue members, or leaders, who said nasty things too
3) usually, if a party has policies you disagree with, you simply don’t vote for them
4) for Britain’s Jews & their allies, the issue with Labour Party is none of the above. I repeat: it is *none of the above*. So Corbynists, pls stop obfuscating, strawmanning &deflecting.
5) the issue is Labour Party stands accused of being *institutionally antisemitic* (racist)

🔥 Thread about China #NeverAgain or nah. The Great Leap Forward, Social Revolution, Red Guards and blackholes. Let's begin...
The GREAT LEAP FORWARD and the CULTURAL REVOLUTION have been sucked into a historic black hole. Gone.
The GREAT LEAP FORWARD began as Mao’s attempt to transform the rural population of China into a revolutionary force, determined to out-Communist Russia. The country became massive collectives called “people's communes”.
Everything was converted to State property, assigned as collective property. Farmer time, like tools they needed, rationed for them by a feudal overlord system. Without the incentive to capture the land’s yield its substitute became the last resort, ultra violence.

Am I moving to the left and going after the establishment?

YES.

I don't want to go to my grave accepting a system that lets babies starve while billionaires barter yachts. That leaves brown children to die in cages. That allows cops to murder black people in cold blood.
I don't want to go to my grave accepting a system that pushes working people into bankruptcy just to pay medical bills. That allows big polluters to ravage the environment. That spends more on war, war, war than on finding cures for diseases. That ignores and shuns the homeless.
I don't want to go to my grave accepting a system that shrugs at the massacre of schoolchildren and that gives unfettered power to gun extremists.

(Thread) A Million People Are Jailed at China's Gulags. I Managed to Escape. Here's What Really Goes on Inside.

Twenty prisoners live in one small room. They are handcuffed, their heads shaved, every move is monitored by ceiling cameras.

haaretz.com/world-news/.pr…
A bucket in the corner of the room is their toilet...Torture – metal nails, fingernails pulled out, electric shocks – takes place in the “black room.” Punishment is a constant. The prisoners are forced to take pills and get injections. It’s for disease prevention,
the staff tell them, but in reality they are the human subjects of medical experiments. Many of the inmates suffer from cognitive decline. Some of the men become sterile. Women are routinely raped.

Does this cartoon represent the way you feel?
I never objected or thought kneeling was offensive. I'm cool with dissent and protest. But...
🚨Can American citizens find out if our companies have made concessions or changed their behavior as a result of CCP demands?
🚨As businesses continue to comply, the acceptance of the CCP’s claims will eventually become an automatic decision and this will be the norm that interferes with the sovereignty of the US.

CCP narrative becomes the ‘truth’ and alternative views and evidence are marginalised.

searching for #Never also brought up posts about @potus being insulated from #impeachment scams.

On this night...18 years ago, 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in
preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00 am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you
go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.

Copied and shared 💔

We will never forget. 🇺🇸🙏🏻 👮‍♀️ 👮 🚒 👩‍🚒 👨🏻‍🚒👨 👩 🧒🏼

1.I want to talk about Geert Wilders who here with Lindsey Graham . He's a hate filled xenophobic Dutch politician who has helped seed Islamophobia across the globe. He compares the Koran to Hitler’s Mein Kampf. He's got ties to many GOP bigots.
2. Rep Steve King is fan of Wilders. Steve King hosted Wilders at his congressional Conservative Opportunity Society a real hot bed for White Nationalists. Go to their website and see who attends their events from Steve Bannon, Kristol, Miller, Kirk. …tiveopportunitysociety-king.house.gov/speakers
3. Geert Wilders in 2014 with Gov Rick Perry at an event hosted by anti Muslim radical, David Horowitz in Florida. It was attended by Jeff Sessions, Ron Johnson & Jim Bridenstine Ann Coulter, Ben Shapiro. Link includes Horowitz announcing his guests.

THREAD: My Jewish relatives talked about the Holocaust a lot. They warned me against standing in lines, entering rooms with no exit, and against people who would seek to blame others for a nation's suffering...
1/10
There are many reasons people mention Hitler often, but the reason his name was on my family's lips was fear. Before the war, they never believed their neighbors and friends could send them off to die without caring or protesting.
2/10
They never believed the people they saw in the butcher shop and the concert hall would watch their children beaten and their houses ransacked without offering aid or even a kind word.

CW: car attack against protestors (yesterday)

A thread of some of my thoughts.
I woke up to news that an ICE guard drove a truck into a team of #NeverAgain protestors in Rhode Island.

No one was killed.

Several were injured.

Then police released tear gas on the Never Again protestors.
1. In the fight against fascism, we do not always get to choose our "risk level." I remember the first day in Cville when someone tried to arrest me for something. I had not chosen to "risk arrest" that day. Sometimes they arrest you because they want to, not because you want to.

@Kris_Sacrebleu We should expect a ‘rhyming’ of our mid-19th century era surrounding our Civil War.
The #GOP (POTrump-#Republicans) shall end, leaving a blessed ‘conservative power drought’ lasting about as long as the Lincoln-to-Arthur 24-yr. GOP dominant era; we’ve no time for conservatism.
👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼There will be far too much to prosecute, legislate for, and plan if we are to last another century.
Do NOT expect assassinations. Do expect continued domestic terror and prodding from, . . . wait for it . . . —RUSSIA.
The thing yoking America today, 👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼 as much as slavery once did, is the scourge of #PartyPolitics which bred corporate control via sponsorship; #Democrats thankfully do acknowledge this, so look for the Dems to do the one thing they do best: self-dismantle their own power through #ElectionReform, 👇🏼

RARE color photos from #WW2 offer a chilling look at evil that should inform the way we see #China’s modern-day #ConcentrationCamps in #EastTurkistan (what Communists call “#Xinjiang”).

True evil isn’t some distant black & white memory; it’s alive today, in living color.
… I see only two key differences between what #Nazi Germany did to Jews, Catholics, Roma, LGBT people, disabled people, & so many others, and what Communist #China‘s doing to #Uyghurs, #Kazakhs, #Kyrgyz, #Uzbeks, #Tatars, #FalunGong, & so many others…
… (1) #Nazi Germany forced people to outwardly identify themselves w/ symbols (inc. the Yellow Star of David), whilst #China’s authorities seem to prefer secret digital records; & (2) the #Nazis killed quickly, whilst China’s authorities appear to be killing slowly… for now.

#Resistance family: I pretty much dropped off of twitter for a couple weeks, dealing with personal shit and trying to check my rage and restlessness with the status quo. And, of course, everything is worse now, and in a couple more weeks, it will be even more worse. 1/
I'm tired. Of the fact that this Administration continues to defile our country with impunity. Tired of racists (becoming more emboldened by the day). Tired of cops getting away with (literally) murder. Tired of human beings being locked in cages like animals. 2/
I'm tired of the fact that brown Americans are made to feel as though they're not Americans (even those born here). It makes me tired that, as each day brings us closer to school starting, my stomach ties into knots, thinking about what could happen to my children there, 3/

@realDonaldTrump 1/5 Mr. @realDonaldTrump campaigned on American Exceptionalism. From Day 1 he was slandered & libeled. For 15+ yrs @SpeakerPelosi ‘s party has fomented hate via #IdentityPolitics.

It’s now the party of #OpenBorders & #SanctuaryCities

@IlhanMN says ‘white nationalism’? Wrong....
@realDonaldTrump @SpeakerPelosi @IlhanMN 2/5 No. There are many black, brown, yellow & red Americans who oppose illegal immigration.

This is abt law & why we’re great.

Last century my family came here legally. Housed in slums. Names changed. Spat on in NYC. They learned English and assimilated. They flew OUR flag....
@realDonaldTrump @SpeakerPelosi @IlhanMN 3/5 I’m darker than @AOC or @RashidaTlaib. The nerve of calling people like me white nationalists is infuriating.

It’s reprehensible for elected officials to use emotionally charged labels like racist, bigot, sexist w/o proof. I’ll never vote Democrat again.
