#Extremism Researchers Confront The Unseen Toll Of Their Work
Charlie Winter, a London-based #terrorism researcher, was dining with friends one recent evening when the conversation turned to whether it is ethical to eat meat.
Someone brought up slaughterhouse conditions, Winter said, and he instantly grew uneasy. He stayed for a while longer, squirming, and then finally left the room.

😨Ex CIA Bob Baer suggests the “urgent credible threat” in the whistleblower complaint (that DNI won’t give Congress) ”usually” has something to do w/ someone in White House setting up an illegal backchannel to a foreign govt, or some sort of corruption, discovered by CIA or NSA.
🚨>> Whistleblower complaint involves TRUMP’S communications with a foreign leader that included a “promise” regarded so troubling it prompted an official in the US intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general.…
In the weeks before the “urgent & credible” whistleblower complaint about Trump’s “promise” to a foreign leader, he had interactions with:
1) Russia’s Putin that WH initiated
2) 2 “beautiful” letters from North Korea’s Kim Jong Un
3) Pakistan’s PM
4) Netherlands’ PM
5) Qatar emir

Está na pauta da sessão de amanhã do #Senado o projeto de lei #PL 5.029/2019, que altera a legislação #eleitoral. O PL gera retrocessos escandalosos nas leis eleitorais e estimula #corrupção, #lavagem de bens e outros #crimes com NOSSO dinheiro. Está aqui:
O #PL5029 altera a Lei dos #Partidos Políticos (Lei 9.096/1995). Um dos maiores problemas é a mudança dos arts. 30 e 31 da lei, para permitir que os partidos usem qualquer sistema de contabilidade do mercado para #prestaçãodecontas. Hoje precisam usar o sistema mantido pelo #TSE
Se cada #partido prestar contas em sistema próprio, será impossível à Justiça Eleitoral usar critérios homogêneos e cruzar informações. As #prestaçõesdecontas dos #partidos, que já não são controladas com eficiência, virarão de vez prestações de faz-de-contas

Okay, here's #MyBernieStory:
I went to college because you HAD to have a degree to make it in the world. $80k later, I have to live with my Mom, because my $1,200 rent payment is going to my loans instead. I can't default because my Mom co-signed. I WILL NOT destroy her credit!(1
...Plus it's impossible to declare bancruptcy anyways. I've worked for a non-profit for ~8 years hoping to get some of my loans forgiven. Turns out 99% who try that fail. So, with interest rates at 14% and ALWAYS rising, I will NEVER pay them off. (2
And that's not for lack of trying. I work a full time job on weekdays, cater as a 2nd on weekends and housesit for all my coworkers and friends consistently for extra cash in my "spare time." I am using my grandparents old car (blessed) & would be completely HOSED without it. (3

How #altRight memes are indoctrinating Gen Z (opinion)…
“Some of the memes I see on Instagram are just shocking,” —Camille White, 16, London.

She says she often encounters more sinister memes, specifically racist, homophobic, transphobic & sexist jokes.

“They make bigoted behavior seem okay when in reality it’s not.”
For years, toxic and offensive memes have proliferated on social media.

During the 2016 presidential election, it was Pepe the Frog who populated social media.

Meet the Proprietors of the Internet's Largest #neoConfederate #Propaganda Machine

by @splcenter…
Identity Dixie (ID), a #neoConfederate propaganda group, was instrumental in organizing the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville.

Jason Kessler, who eventually joined #IdentityDixie, secured the permit for the Aug. 12, 2017 event.
The group’s growth is notable considering the tight controls for membership, a power struggle with its parent organization, The Right Stuff (TRS), and the bad press following the bloody and violent protests at Unite the Right.

I was totally delighted when the @V_and_A announced an exhibition on bags. For reasons #materialculture types in particular know, in the last two years I have been fascinated with #shopping bags and #knitting bags:…
My former employer, @michiganstateu Museum, has a lovely collection of nearly 300 "designer" paper #shopping bags dating back to the famous @Bloomingdales bags of the 1960s. Here's a wonderful post about Bloomingdale's bags from @cooperhewitt:…
Also at MSUM care earlier textile shopping bags made by women. The history of the #shopping bag has been one told mostly by manufacturers and mostly by historians of technology and business, both based on invention of machines to manufacture paper bags.

[Thread] 1) Tonight's thread is on the "Make Iran Great Again" Hashtag and its subsidiaries, e.g. #MIGA. This hashtag is being used by an opposition movement called Restart, led by Mohammad Hosseini, who reminds me of a 90s TV magician. The thread, is of course, ridiculous #Iran
2) The sample analysed is taken from the period between 25th August-3 September. It consists of approx 27,000 tweets from around 3,300 accounts. I'm not an Iran expert, but with Restart you need to know that they encourage ppl to lead regime change in Iran
4) First up. There appears to be no real distance between the MIGA accounts and the MAGA accounts. The most active account on the hashtag is actually called @persia_bot - which blatantly has MIGA and MAGA in the bio. Persia bot seems just to retweet everything pro-Restart

Einige Schlussfolgerungen zur #RechtsaußenWahl #LTW19 #ltwbb19 #ltwsn in #Brandenburg und #Sachsen (Thread):
Die jahrelange Naivität vieler Demokrat*innen rächt sich und zentrale Vorstellungen über den "#Rechtspopulismus" werden widerlegt.
An #Kalbitz in #Brandenburg zeigt sich beispielhaft, wie #Rechtsradikale Kränkungen, Unzufriedenheit, Rassismus, Enttäuschung und Wut politisieren - wie einst die #NSDAP. Dafür werden sie gewählt.

"The Epoch Times seeks to restore honest journalism, the purpose of a free press."

Wall Street Journal @WSJ publishes op-ed by @EpochTimes publisher Stephen Gregory in response to misleading @NBCNews and @MSNBC attacks. (Thread 👇)…
@WSJ @NBCNews @MSNBC The #EpochTimes is a nonpartisan, independent media company that publishes a daily newspaper and website. Our motto is “Truth and Tradition.”

Last week #NBCNews and its sister network #MSNBC launched a series of irresponsible and misleading attacks on us.
The network led with the claim that we have spent “more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself” in the past 6 months on “pro-Trump advertisements.”

NBC refers to ads promoting our print subscriptions—typically short, lively videos featuring recent articles.

#Trump’s #G7 Misstatements, Lies, Distortions #Propaganda
❌False excuse for skipping climate mtg
❌China called to restart talks
❌‘2nd thoughts’ misinterpreted
❌G7 leaders wanted Russia back
❌Putin outsmarted Obama re Crimea
❌1stLady knows KJU
❌Lost $3-5B on presidency
@CNN Great CNN graphic of Trump's #G7 distortions, lies & #propaganda missed a few Orwellian BIG LIES:
❌I don't care about making money
❌I don't do things for political reasons
❌I'm an environmentalist
Bombarding the public w/ absurd & provable lies is how fascists break societies.
@CNN By far the most disturbing thing Trump said at #G7 was reported in this piece by @PhilipRucker & @michaelbirnbaum: Going to the mat for Putin, Trump argued to remove #democracy as a core G7 principle. And became combative when the world's democratic leaders didn't agree with him.

Trump’s “head-spinning about-face” at #G7. Officials call his comments “misinterpreted.” That’s a nice way to say the President of the United States is an incompetent ass & everyone has to lie for him. Why are we still being polite about this catastrophe??…
“Head-spinning” is too often journalese euphemism for “mind-f*cking.” Perhaps it applies to Trump at times, but when advisors & surrogates rush in to cover, confuse, gaslight & “re-interpret,” that’s deliberate. Manipulative propaganda must be called out in clear language.
In 2016 I wrote America was drowning in a #propaganda swamp: “Trump and his surrogates, appearing daily on every news program to ‘balance’ coverage, have inundated our media w so much hate…ignorance…lies…twisted facts…conspiracy theories.” Little has changed & not for better.

Dear readers,

As you know, The Epoch Times is a proudly independent news organization dedicated to truthful reporting.

Thanks to your support, we are now America’s fastest-growing newspaper. (Thread 👇)…
It appears, however, that not everyone is thrilled with our growth and our dedication to restoring honest journalism.

@NBCNews & @MSNBC dedicated a good amount of their time attempting to discredit us.

We were surprised at witnessing what appears to be a new low…
…that media are willing to drop to in an effort to quash voices they don’t agree with.

@MSNBC host Rachel @Maddow, known for her biased coverage of the Trump admin and for getting the Trump–Russia collusion story wrong, dedicated 30 minutes of prime-time television to us.

Oh look. #Russia is rewriting history w/ #propaganda and calling it #TrueHistory🙄

ACTUAL #FACTUALHISTORY: The #MolotovRibbentrop pact triggered the Nazi invasion of Poland & WWII. Stalin made a cold-blooded calculation to align w/ Hitler & enslave Europe together. #FactsMatter
Russia/USSR supplied Nazi Germany w/ grain & oil as Hitler invaded Denmark, Norway, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg. Soviet supplies made it impossible for Royal Navy to effectively blockade Germany during the Battle of Britain. #FactualHistory #MolotovRibbentropPact
As they jointly occupied Poland in 1939-41, Russia/Soviets & Nazis each sought to destroy national elites & used strikingly similar policies of deportations & executions. Together, they executed 10s of 1000s of Polish civilians. #FactualHistory #MolotovRibbentropPact #FactsMatter

the tagline for the Soviet campaign to defeat the West ...

📌“through the FORCE OF POLITICS,
rather than the politics of force.”

From Messing With the Enemy by @selectedwisdom
The US created the UN & enjoyed dominance in the realm of “state-to-state” systems—diplomatic and military alliances.

Soviets created alliances through real or perceived threat of military force, establishing coalitions w iron-fisted strongmen in Eastern Eu and Central Asia
Soviets became increasingly isolated politically and militarily, as the Cold War dragged on

#activemeasures, led by the KGB’s #ServiceA, became the focal point for their efforts against America and the West.

#WhitePowerExtremists 🚨
Based on @FightExtremism report on 8 especially virulent #WhiteSupremacist groups

These eight groups principally espouse
#WhiteEthnoNationalism and/or
aka National Socialist Movement /NSM and #neoNazi
These Neo-Nazi (NSM) groups don’t hide their belief that the white race is superior to others.

⚑National Socialist Movement (NSM)
⚑Hammerskin Nation
⚑Atomwaffen Division (AWD)

Their ideologies also usually include anti-Semitic & homophobic components in line w Nazi dogma.
Other groups propagate their radical stances under the GUISE of WHITE ETHNO-NATIONALISM, seeking to highlight the distinctiveness––rather than the superiority––of the white identity.↴
