1) A thread on #ContactTracing. Yes, it's here. We are watching the #NWO #Agenda21 script play out right in front of our eyes. First we'll show what this is, then I'll share an Anon's opinion of what is really going on. No fear....
2) First, THOUSANDS of #ContactTracers are being hired all over the country. The evidence of this is clear.…
3) Now, who would be attracted to such an invasive job? How EXCITED your neighbor might be to be able to decide the future of your kids and other family members through #ContactTracing! 🙄 Controlling flags, grass length and noisy dogs is just not enough!

#Miseàjour (II) En face, si les gouverneurs ciblés ont réagi avec 1 sobriété ironique à #Trump, renvoyé à ses tweets- ici, #Northam (…), d'autres montrent 1 exaspération des pouvoirs locaux face à l'autoritarisme fédéral. Ici, #Cuomo.
#Miseàjour (III) Le gouverneur du Washington et ex-présidentiable Inslee a été le plus loin, mettant des mots sur les choses et évoquant 1 président #Trump qui fomente 1 rébellion intérieure contre les autorités démocratiques locales. #àlire
#Miseàjour (IV) Au-delà du fossé croissant dans le fédéralisme US entre autoritarisme central et pouvoirs locaux, la conséquence directe de l'appel de #Trump: en pleine épidémie de coronavirus, il encourage des manifestants contrevenant à tout confinement.

Black face was popularized during the Vaudeville Days. No one took offense and no one screamed “racist!” It was what it was. Even when Ted Danson took to black face while roasting then black girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg, but it was nothing but a gentle dig.
2/ As was pointed out by Harris Faulkner (who is black) yesterday, the more concerning thing for her was the VA Gov’s then nickname, “Coonman.” Which implies an ongoing insult and not just a “gentle dig.” #Northam
3/ As to why #Democrats seem “obsessed with blacking up:” haven’t they ALWAYS used and abused the group they feel they “own?” Right down to innocent women and children? #PizzaGate #HumanTraffiking

I presume that #Northam will eventually resign. My focus remains on the Russian attack on US. How did this not get exposed during the election? I conclude at a minimum GOP opo researchers knew and held it. IMO they were likely working with the Kremlin. Like most Koch-funded GOP.
Update on the story. IMO a Kremlin connected vector. From @MotherJones
That Northam yearbook photo? It was unearthed by an outlet associated with white nationalists.… via @MotherJones
Here is a link to the State of VA FOIA page on the #Northam Alma Mater web site. Someone with a budget like @MSNBC @maddow @Lawrence should seek copies of 1983, '84 and '85 Year Books.…

EXCLUSIVE: I just talked with a man who says he was Gov Northam's college roommate. He says he was at the party where the picture was taken and does NOT believe it is Northam. He says the Gov went as a lawyer. The man also says he talked with #Northam Saturday. Tonight on @NBC12

1/ Just to give you a sense of how little #Northam really appreciates the gravity of blackface, consider his resistance to resigning even though he literally owes his victory to black Virginians. So, here's the thought experiment...
2/ Imagine he had been pictured in his yearbook or at some other point not in blackface or Klan robes but wearing sidecurls, tzitzit, a kippah and a nose prosthetic (in a grotesque caricature of Jews). In such a situation there is NO chance he wouldn't have resigned by now...
3/ And this is true, even though the Jewish vote would NOT have been a key to his victory. But here the black vote WAS and he still resists. Which suggests he doesn't really think blackface is that bad, and that he doesn't truly value black Virginians as he claims...

I’m not advising #Northam on how to handle this situation but in general White Southern men on the left need to speak candidly about the culture of White supremacy and Confederate glorification that pervades the landscape from which they came. For example:
I mean let’s just keep it real, a White Southern man *not* engaging in KKK impersonation, blackface and/or Confederate fanaticism at some point across his lifespan renders him anomalous amongst his peers/in his community. Hell, in many circles these are fucking rights of passage.
Just be honest and admit that this is what passes for heritage and pride for millions of White Southerners to this very day and that it’s even been exported to the rest of the country on the wing’s of the GOP’s Southern Strategy. The issue is the assimilation of White supremacy.

As a German who has lived in the US, I continue to be struck by how little deliberate effort has been made in the US to come to terms with a violent past, especially as this past has seamlessly morphed into a violent present (THREAD) /1 #BlackHistoryMonth #Northam
On the contrary, plantations, which should be sites of education and remembrance, continue to be wedding destinations, offer hotel packages and fancy meals. /2 #BlackHistoryMonth

It’s shocking but not surprising to see racist conduct, esp 35yrs ago. We’re a racist society. We all internalize it. At least #Northam’s sorry & owned it. Let’s not lose focus on the unapologetic racists in the White House/GOP pushing racist policies causing POC harm every day.
I don’t want to make excuses for Northam’s appalling & offensive racist conduct. I do want to acknowledge those who recognize their racism & fight against it are not the same as those who don’t give a damn and embrace it. The 1st are allies in the bigger struggle against the 2nd.
FWIW My view is also informed by a “kompromat” perspective. The big picture in America today is that Russia & others hostile provoke us to turn on one another, try to divide us, with a compromising pic. We’re all vulnerable in some way. We can’t let kompromat be the new norm.
