So much of edu-Right is cult-like.

❌ First is the weird hero-worship of figures like Bush, @BetsyDeVos, @DougDucey even lesser names like Rhee, and collection of Broad-supts #education #privateschool @DianeRavitch @NPEaction @PV4PS @mrobmused

❌ Second are the villains, which every extremist group/cult needs to project its weird grievance on

For the edu-Right it’s
✔️#teachersunions specifically @rweingarten
✔️#woke/#DEI / #CRT “agenda”
✔️ Trans-kids/ #LGBTQ adults
✔️ who the hell knows what else

❌ Third, related to villains is stoked fear:
✔️ perceived threat to way of life
✔️ fear of “the other”
✔️ imagined threats to own children coupled with willingness to actually put them at risk

Quick🧵 on vouchers and fringe campaigns:

The common link between @gretchenwhitmer @katiehobbs is both ran against fringe #schoolvouchers candidates #Election2022

Whitmer ran against @BetsyDeVos handpicked avatar @TudorDixon who made #schoolvouchers and “parents” the centerpiece of her campaign

Hobbs ran against @BetsyDeVos choice Kari Lake, who made AZ’s recent #schoolvouchers expansion—the largest in the US—her own centerpiece

For non-MI folks:

A Sunday thread 🧵 on the history of Let MI Kids Learn, the pre-packaged name for @BetsyDeVos #schoolvouchers in #miched

@DianeRavitch @saribethrose @vicpasquantonio @Network4pubEd

Among the dozens of #schoolvouchers plans I’ve seen, this was the worst in terms of transparency—alongside #azed and #floridaed.

In particular no failsafe against Chatfield-style allegedly abusive schools.

Whitmer actually vetoed the plan originally a year ago. And as early as then, the state GOP didn’t expect to win the #migov (save for a more recent post-primary fever dream) in #Election2022

Hi all!
It's a 10 minute warning on the start of #Democrat Congressional candidate in #PA01, @ashley_ehasz's #townhall on #ReproductiveFreedom and the role of Congress.

You can watch here:

We'll be live tweeting the whole thing!
If you attended the @ashley_ehasz #PA01 #townhall in person, you'd have seen this (#Antichoice #GOP extremist Brian Fitzpatrick) cardboard guy out front.

That's as close as any version of Fitz would get to a town hall. He sprints away from unscripted constituent contact!
In case you want a run down of the legislative goods on #GOP #Antichoice extremist Brian Fitzpatrick of #PA01, here's the rundown...

The TL;DR is that Brian Fitzpatrick has ALWAYS voted AGAINST #AbortionRights.

He's no moderate, don't drink the Kool-aid on that!

“My top-level, expert legal analysis of the [Trump Mar-a-Lago FBI search] affidavit is: Why ain’t this dude in jail? What does this man have to do to go to jail?”

“Just the classification markings referred to in this [redacted Mar-a-Lago search warrant] affidavit — made the hair on the back of my neck stand up… Literally human lives can be at stake.” @FrankFigliuzzi1

@NicolleDWallace #TrumpStoleClassifiedDocuments
“There is a feeling here that [if] Merrick Garland decides not to prosecute Trump, how do you hold anyone else accountable for violating classification rules going forward in the U.S. government?”@JaxAlemany

Montanans waking up to the news about Kansas:

State government control of your reproductive health care is *also* on the ballot here in November.

In at least three separate ways, actually. 🧵

#mtpol #mtnews
First: if Rs pick up two seats in the legislature, they'd have a supermajority.

A supermajority can place initiatives on the ballot to directly amend our Constitution and exclude abortion care from the right to privacy. They could even call a new constitutional convention.
Second: our Supreme Court affirmed in 1999 (Armstrong) that Montana's constitutional right to privacy includes abortion care.

PSC chair Jim Brown is running against current justice Ingrid Gustafson for the Supreme Court, and if elected would choose not to uphold that precedent.

1/ I would like to clear up some misinformation that I keep seeing re: medication abortion pills mifepristone & misoprostol. I keep seeing it reported that these pills can only be taken up to 10 weeks of pregnancy, but there’s more to the story
2/ Mife is fda approved up to 10 weeks but robust data has shown that mife plus miso or miso alone are medically safe & effective to take even after 12 weeks of pregnancy. We use plenty of meds "off-label" safely. The WHO has guidelines & references on this.
3/ So when ppl see things like "medication abortion pills can only be taken up to 10 weeks of pregnancy" they often think something medically dangerous will definitely happen to them, which is not medically accurate & that they have no other options.
