It's #ElectionEve and I want to tell you why I #vote.
My parents were Socialists.
They grew up dirt poor.
They believed in creating change in their lifetimes.
They raised us to believe the same.
When we were small, they were Civil Rights workers.
My dad was a Freedom Rider.

Our early childhood was framed within & by the #CRM.
My mother wasn't well, but she did everything she knew how, to ensure that black Americans had the right to vote, a right she cherished because her mother had been a baby #suffragist and had fought for that right for women.
2/
The fallout for my parents was minor compared to their black friends, but it was violent and hate-strewn and they worried about their children being hurt.

And we were hurt. I got beaten up a lot because then as now I refused silence. I got in a lot of fist fights.

The left fears that unless blacks continue to believe #Republicans are #racists , they will not overwhelmingly vote Democrat, and if they don't, #Democrats will not regain the White House for the foreseeable future.
The same holds true for depicting Republicans and conservatives as women haters. There is no better way to persuade college-indoctrinated women to vote Democrat.
And the same holds true for Latinos -- Republicans must be continuously labeled "white supremacists" and "xenophobes" or they, too, may not reliably vote Democrat.

#verifyvickis are white people who continually harass and attack the credentials of POC with the belief that POC should meet their defined standard.” Examples include @drdenagrayson @louisemensch @amy_siskind @MelissaJPeltier
As always feel free to turn the channel when I’m on, not read what I write, block or mute me, don’t buy my book, say you disagree with me — the fact that all you can do is attack our creds and background is why you’re #racists.
They also hate being called out on their bs. How many of these people have gleefully embraced derogatory terms about me or other POC. How many have amplified calls for me to have clearance taken away or to be investigated?

Can I also add “being a national security expert and giving their professional opinion based on experience?” This doesn’t mean you should tweet at them insestantly calling them frauds, demanding they be fired or asking them to prove to you they are relevant. #racists
Cc @melissajpeltier and all her rabid crazy white racists.

I'm one of a few million Americans awake when we should be sleeping because of the pain of #cancer or some other chronic illness.

Adding to our sleeplessness is knowing #healthcare is under threat. We may not be able to afford it due to the #GOP's actions.

It's terrorizing.
My parents were Civil Rights workers. My father was a Freedom Rider. As a small child I was taught the legacy of #MLK.
I watched people invoking MLK on Monday. Not in defense of #votingrights or in outrage over how the #SCOTUS ruled on two pivotal cases on gerrymandering.
2/
MLK wasn't being invoked for #votingrights but for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who lies to America every day about policies that could very well kill me & others.

Policies that are hurting millions.

Policies that have kept me a citizen without equal rights in my own country.

1. I remember when you angry #Trumpkins stormed into #Republican Party; called #Conservatives “cucks”, “leftists”, “Killary voters”, “libtards”. You idolized #Trump in a cultic way. You fraternized with alt right #racists. You winked at #sexism. ->

2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->

When #UKLabour openly admits an alliance with the #Communist Party the true problem is few remember #Communism is an authoritarian ideology responsible for the deaths of more than 100 million people. It failed spectacularly in just the same predictable way #Socialism does. 1/9
We get the usual “not real Socialism” excuse. Groups like #Momentum and #Antifa are openly advocating for complete open borders, #UKLabour is now full of #racists, #homophobes, #bigots, #misogynists and #paedophile apologists. They are the Cultural Marxists we were warned of. 2/9
They wish to destroy everything that is dear to us and replace it with nothing, we have been taught at schools and lectured at our Universities that everything must be about oppression and diversity and if you disagree you get castigated by society at large. 3/9
