“My biggest fear is my Commander will call ICE”

Unfuckingbelievable. This kind of scapegoating and betrayal after giving up your life to become part of the shrinking pool of people who serve in uniform, is unconscionable and dangerous #WhereisMattis #VetsAgainstTrump
What is unfathomable is the hypocrisy. This soldier clearly passed the Army’s standards & requirements- around training, health, behavior/comportment- kept her nose clean, did her job for 4 yrs. All just for this soldier to be kicked out w no real cause & risk #deportation.
You know how isn’t always kicked out of our #military with this kind of vigor?

Sexual predators and criminals

Corrupt, fraud-waste power abusers

Dirtbags

White supremacists

Hyper-religious homophobic commanders who still don’t respect or uphold open service policies

When I was called back to service in 2004 for the Iraq War, I was attached to a California reserve unit.
They were 99% Hispanic, and some weren’t citizens.
I was one of three white guys in that unit. But I never felt like that, since they treated me like family.
#ImmigrantVets
As much as our nation has scorned and shunned Hispanic immigrants, I would’ve understood if they treated me as an outsider.
I would’ve been disappointed, but understanding.
But that’s not what happened.
And they were some of the finest Marines I’ve served with.
#ImmigrantVets
The Hispanic Marines I served with welcomed me into their unit.
Since then I’ve learned a few things. Hispanics have no problem assimilating into our society, or welcoming us into their homes.
We do.
We push them to edge and find ways to keep them there.

Let's all of us (#MAGA and #Resistance) compare how many mass murdering terrorists are aligned with the progressive left in terms of feminism, LGBT+ equality, racial equality, religious equality... and how many are aligned with the conservative right in terms of the same:
1) Timothy McVeigh + 2 accomplices (168 deaths + at least 680 injuries in Apr 1995)

What does everybody (#MAGA #Resistance #TrumpTrain #BlueWave #BuildTheWall #ImpeachTrump #RedWave #VetsAgainstTrump) think: Progressives or Conservatives?
2) Eric Rudolph (2 deaths + at least 120 injuries from July 1996 – Jan 1998)

What does everybody (#MAGA #Resistance #TrumpTrain #BlueWave #BuildTheWall #ImpeachTrump #RedWave #VetsAgainstTrump) think: Progressive or Conservative?

THREAD: It’s clear that Trump doesn’t actually care about having an effective military, or keeping us safe, his priority is white nationalist purges. #VetsVsHate
Yesterday, the White House shared a video of President Trump once again using the military community as props to advance his bigoted and un-American agenda.
In the video, Trump accused immigrants of being a national security threat, and called for extreme and unprecedented reductions in legal immigration, intentionally tearing apart families.

THREAD: It's shocking that Trump still hasn't contacted the families of the 4 troops killed in #Niger, but that's just half the story. 1/
Calling the families of fallen troops is, after all, the absolutely lowest bar. Trump fails even that, which tells us something important 2/
It tells us that Trump lacks any real empathy for the millions of troops under his command. That has bigger implications beyond these 4. 3/
