So clearly today is not the day we get to have a life. Catching up now, but 11th & Pine (once again) is a major friction point between protesters and police. We've seen flash bangs, pepper spray and blast balls all used in the last few minutes.

Police are now trying shoot pepper spray through the front line umbrella brigade.

We've heard repeated reports that flashbangs have lobbed into the crowds and that media have been targeted by both pepper spray and rubber bullets.

"Shallow displays of solidarity... represent the insidious drive to gaslight us into apathy, to bury violence beneath a fleeting veil of showy concern."

Así trató la policía en #BuffaloNY a un hombre mayor que se les acercó solo y desarmado.
“Se lastimó cuando se tropezó y cayó”

Eso dice el comunicado de la policía de Buffalo NY @BPDAlerts. (Via @JeffRussoWKBW) Image
Fíjense en la expresión del policía que lo empujó al pasar junto a él, se va a inclinar a verlo y su compañero lo jala y siguen caminando. Los policías pasan junto a él como si nada.

No lo rodean para protegerlo.

Y metros adelante van contra otro y lo arrestan, rodeándolo.

A Statement from @PeakGooners:

The Pikes Peak Gooners is a football fan group. We share a love of football, a love of our club, and of the family around it.


That in no way removes us from the responsibility of social and racial justice work. /1
Colorado Springs and the PPR is a politically mixed area, and there is a long history of racial conflict and oppression here. That truth is vitally important to recognize. ( /2
It's also one of the top cities in the country for millennials, small businesses and startups. It is changing rapidly. ( /3

Why my conservative friends should be alarmed about what happened in DC last night:

1. The POTUS, in a pre-planned action, had the police tear gas and clear the private property of a church 25 minutes before the declared curfew. #StJohnsChurch #Protests2020 1/10
During this clearing, several pastors who were running an aid station to extend hospitality in the name of Jesus were expelled against their will from church property. 2/10
2. Minutes after the expulsion, the POTUS arrived in front of the church. He was given a Bible, which he admitted was not his, which he raised like some sort of idol to be worshipped instead of the Word of God. He didn’t open it, or read from it, or pray. It was a prop. 3/10

#thread #BlackLivesMattter #GeorgeFloyd #protests2020

My Observation:

Institutions that are in place to protect and serve the community have allowed individuals under their purview to terrorize and kill with impunity. (1/10)
The reaction when there has been a clear violation of a Black American’s civil rights or a blatant miscarriage of justice = “let’s wait and see.” (2/10)
And often as we wait, it happens again. And when it’s finally time for justice to be served, nothing happens. No one is accountable. Violators are able to go about their life, after callously taking someone else’s away. (3/10)

Ok. Guys. As someone who has researched #AmericanExceptionalism a lot, I have A THREAD. #protests2020
First, what is #AmericanExceptionalism? It is helpful to view it as a national identity or narrative (which says that the US is inherently morally superior to other nations, and therefore will rise but not fall like previous great powers, and therefore should lead others).
I write about how this narrative has influenced US foreign policy through history in this book:…

Curfews are giving the police MORE license to do the same shit that spurred the protests. There is no excuse for a homeowner like Rahul (bless him) to need to offer refuge to people like a scene from The Purge. Free the protestors! #savejenny #dchouseraid
Literally posted earlier my comments from Sunday on #RolandMartinUnfiltered that the curfews don't change the police's violent behavior. As I said, rather than curfews, these mayors & governors need to be addressing the police abuse of power. #protests2020
#RahulDubey is a hero for protecting protestors who were being hunted by the police by providing them shelter. The experience was undoubtedly terrifying and traumatic for the protestors, but thanks to Rahul they left after curfew with no arrrets. #savejenny #SwannStreet

Fourth protest in Fort Worth for #GeorgeFloyd. Last night, protesters were tear gassed by police. Right now we’re in front of city hall. Couple hundred people here. #protests2020
“George Floyd!” “I can’t breathe!” Protesters chant as they march down Taylor Street.
The mayor issued an 8 pm curfew for tonight. Protesters have two hours and then police wouls presumably begin arrests.
Protest leaders said they plan to be done by 7:30 to abide by the curfew.

They encouraged people to leave the bridge last night before police launched tear gas, said they didn’t want anyone hurt

At @MayorBowser press conference just now on 7 PM curfew, @ChiefNewsham just asked members of the media to collaborate with cops by filming protesters’ faces and help them arrest them.…
DC’s @MayorBowser just promised to bring “federal assets” to bear on protests tonight. She said this moments after @EsperDoD told governors to “dominate the battle space” and William Barr used the word “dominate” 12 times in a separate call w state leaders. #protests2020
.@ChiefNewsham said w/o evidence “organized groups” were behind the vandalism. I was in downtown DC after last night’s 11 PM curfew. Some storefronts smashed. Didn’t see any organization, just angry youth who never got any benefit from all the wealth that poured into the city. ImageImageImageImage

The notion of an ongoing resistance by people of color in the #US sounds outlandish but might be what is needed in order to rid America of its racist and violent attitudes.

In Palestine, within a manner of days, the Israeli authorities shot three people, killing two. Two of the three were young Palestinian men with special needs.
The other man is Iyad Khairi Hallak, who was shot and killed in Jerusalem. One can expect that none of the soldiers or police officers involved in these shootings will face a court of law, or even a reprimand.

Saturday’s protest against #policebrutality in the capital of #Texas may show that the have-nots in America may have found a common cause to rally around – and that is not good news for the police.

The latest instance of American social disharmony being blamed on Moscow is part of a long tradition, where some see an invisible Russian hand whenever it is useful.

While the evidence linking the public anger over #GeorgeFloyd 's killing to the Kremlin, Beijing, or any other foreign government is hazy, at best, the utility in blaming outside agitators for rioting or even for @realDonaldTrump victory in 2016 is clear.
