But for every other country on earth, the #UnitedStates is the absolute worst country on earth.
We cherish #liberty but not enough to hang politicians for their every #encroachment on it.

(Remember, according to #ThomasJefferson (and all the natural rights philosophers who preceded him), the purpose of the government is to #securetheseliberties among men.)

Today, I announce one man campaign to repeal FISA against American Citizens. 🇺🇸#RepealFISA
What some of my fellow Americans should know is when a #FISA is applied to an AMERICAN citizen, he or she becomes an #institutionalized #slave and #property with all constitutional rights and all protections removed as well as totally deprived of all civil liberties and privacy.
Intel officials abused their positions to discredit opposition to the Dem. Party, of which they were a part of with leaks to the media they control, they abused the public’s faith in their superior knowledge to vilify their domestic polit. enemies from behind secrecy’s shield.

Remember when #Republicans #seceded from the #Union to defend the @PeculiarInstitution of #Slavery?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans created the #KKK as an armed force of masked #terrorists to #murder newly #freedslaves and government officials that protected them?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans enacted #apartheid in America through so-called #JimCrow laws?

Neither do I.

Let's talk about JP Morgan (Jeffrey Epstein's bank) for a minute.

In 2005 JP Morgan admitted it owned slaves.
Citizens Bank and Canal Bank in Louisiana, which were ultimately acquired by JP Morgan, accepted approximately 13,000 slaves as collateral and took ownership of approximately 1250 between 1831 and 1865, according to
a memo to employees from CEO and Chairman William Harrison and President James Dimon aka Jamie Dimon.

PLEASE notice that when the press finally publishes information about high profile crimes the first name is usually different than the known name.

Interlude #2: Next episode by Dr Dre featuring Snoop Dogg. '2001' is a perfect album from start to finish. open.spotify.com/track/4LwU4Vp6…
Pre-911 I'd not gotten into History or Geopolitics much. I didn't feel like Nations & how they ran themselves would hold many surprises. Expect folks creating a broken/backwards system to themselves be broken/backwards. #911 reminded humans how quickly this stuff can matter /23
End of the day on 911 I felt like I all I knew for sure was America was about to smoke somebody, maybe a whole bunch of somebodies & that it would be nice to know who actually did it & why. What else can you do? You wait for the President to speak. Yeah. *That* guy. /24

1.) Is it just me or is everyone f’n brain washed into wanting a life devoid of freedom and happiness? Have people forgotten that WE make the world #economy work? We’re the consumers AND the work. The owners just facilitate between the groups & make a killing being middle men...
2.) If we ever broke free of our damn slumber & broke up these low competition industries there would be an entrepreneurial boom in the 2020s. Normal people will have opportunities to form businesses better than ever before without fear of reprisal from industry leaders...
3.) It’s absolutely imperative to expose these industry #Cartels who control every major revenue source in the world. There are 2,153 #Billionaires in the world who as a group, control more wealth & companies than the entire world population. They have boxed out small business.

Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Different sort of thread, mostly linking to other threads in relation to recent actions by the Board of Deputies.

The Board of Deputies works closely with Muslim communities and #TellMAMA, fighting anti-Muslim hate.
The Board of Deputies relationship with Christian communities is different from their protection orientated relationship with Muslims.

Rather than challenging anti-Christian hate, the focus is on Christians helping Jews and Israel.

White nationalism is a threat says the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Jews have the right to self determination for Israel says the IHRA definition of antisemitism.

#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

Thread. The @nytimes's #1619 project reopened some old wounds between economists and historians with respect to the #Historyofcapitalism subfield. What explains this tension between the disciplines and can we improve it for future collaboration? #econhist #slavery #capitalism
@nytimes Before continuing further, some qualifications...as I often do, when I thought to mention this, I figured I also needed to mention that and as a result, this thread would get way too long. I'm pressed for time with the start of the semester and developing an online class
@nytimes but I didn't want to give up and had to write something. So here goes.

Seit Jahren untersuche ich die US-Rechte: lese ihre Texte, analysiere polit. Entscheidungen, untersuche ihre Biographien - was man halt so macht. Ein Muster begegnet mir ständig: Die permanente Selbst-Viktimisierung, die im krassen Konstrast zur polit. und ökon. Macht steht. 1/
Eve Fairbanks beschreibt nun in einem exzellenten Artikel in der #WashingtonPost, wie weit diese spezifisch konservative Opfer-Rhetorik zurückreicht und wie sie im Antebellum South verwendet wurde, um Sklaverei zu verteidigen. washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/0… 2/
Denn die Südstaatler sprachen nicht etwa von #slavery: "they anointed themselves the defenders of reason, free speech and civility." Als die wahren Verteidiger von Minderheitenrechten und Freiheit (der Sklavenhalter, wohlgemerkt.) 3/

1. #QAnon has just dropped a post about symbolism at an amazingly corresponding juncture of events! #Q
2. #QAnon's picture, like all, is original, at least insofar as the pic does not appear to've been from the internet. #Q
3. #QAnon Of course the interest here is that the pic greatly resembles the temple built on #EpsteinIsland. #Q

Also, if you’re saying, “He’s racist, but…” your privilege is showing. People of color do not have the luxury of qualifying or ignoring it. #Racism
If you see “Go back where you came from,” literally #1 on the #whitesupremacy all-time greatest hits list, and deny the blatant racism of the person who uttered it, you are truly living in a bubble of privilege and denial. #Racism
A leader encouraging a chant of “Send her back!” Towards a citizen who is a person of color at a political rally has effectively stepped over the line of #Racism to fascism.

@JoeCunninghamSC Surely you’re aware #Lincoln wanted to send all Blacks back where they came from.
“But for your race, there could not be war. Many men engaged on either side do not care for you one way or the other. Without slavery the war could not have an existence.”

@JoeCunninghamSC 1862 #Lincoln talks to influential Blacks telling them all Blacks should go back where they came from.
“we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. ...this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both,"
@JoeCunninghamSC 1862 #Lincoln "I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word we suffer on each side. If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated.”

FYI Google makes it hard to find the truth. Why is that?

Here you go:

13th amendment that abolished #slavery. 100% #Republicans voted for it, 77% of #Democrats voted AGAINST it.
@abstractheory @4DreamLife @Empire_Gal @ida_skibenes @VP 2)
14th amendment gave citizenship to all blacks. 94% Republicans voted for it & every Democrat voted AGAINST it.
@abstractheory @4DreamLife @Empire_Gal @ida_skibenes @VP 3)
15th amendment grants blacks the right to vote. 100% Republican voted for it. Every Democrat voted AGAINST it.

I finally forced myself to watch @ava’s #13th on @netflix. I know I am massively tardy to the party, but racial documentaries are hard for me. It was, of course, devastating, so I’m glad I’m grading at home today so I can process, seethe, mourn & completely avoid wypipo.
My first reaction was “Fuck, this [the systemic oppression of black people & destruction of black lives] is never going to end. Not until we upend every last piece of the existing systems.” Then I sat overwhelmed & crying bc the earth/humanity may not last long enough for that.
And let’s be clear, I read The New Jim Crow years ago (which is why I felt like I didn’t *need* to watch 13th), but watching the documentary tie these legacies to images/audio of #NotMyPresident brought it home in a new way emotionally for me rather than just intellectually.

Thread. This is a response to a conversation on @nhannahjone ‘s timeline a couple of days ago about slavery. She argued that for most of U.S. history, “black people were set completely *outside* of the class structure.”

That slaves, “As non-people, as property, as a tradable commodity, they were classless. Their race meant they had NO class.” Most people on her TL agreed with her. A few were puzzled and skeptical. In another tweet in response to a critic she said:
“Can a table or a mule be part of a class. If so, then, yes, AMerican slaves were part of a class.” The idea that enslaved people were regarded as property is a contradiction on its face, as many scholars have argued. Slaves were commodified for the purpose of exploiting their
