@margaretbarthel I don't do podcasts. I prefer to read the text, Faster. But the @Polk_Azov Battalion, #DefendersOfMariupol do NOT identify with Hitler. Their hero is #PatrickHenry They ID with #AmericanPatriots They are @Ukraine's #Patriots They want freedom. Is she McLean as in McLean House?
@margaretbarthel @Polk_Azov @Ukraine What does insipid transplant Barthel know about this history? McClean is an art historian & the destruction of those superb equine statues, great works of art that put Richmond on European tour guide lists as a place to see, is cause of destruction of $2B History/Heritage toursim
@margaretbarthel @Polk_Azov @Ukraine Adding context explaining the real history associated with equine staues was recommended, along with removal of Jeff Davis, and addition of statues of The Fourteen African American Union soldiers who helped win key battles outside Richmond, each winning Medals of Honor.They WON/2

On June 1, #Virginia’s House & Senate passed a compromise #VaBudget. It included some positive changes, like increased funding for #K12 schools, and some harmful changes, like setting up a diversion of $$ from affordable housing and new crimes related to marijuana. 🧵 (1/
Yesterday, Gov. Youngkin proposed amendments to the compromise #VaBudget. Some are technical fixes, others are positive, but some would move #Virginia backward by reinstating damaging policies, pitting communities against each other, and weakening transportation in Virginia. (2/
First, the Gov has re-proposed suspending VA's retail gas tax for 3 months. "Savings" from this policy would end up in the pockets of the oil industry & out-of-state residents. This proposal would slash 100s of millions in funding for transportation. thecommonwealthinstitute.org/the-half-sheet… (3/

@GeneralClark I know how @Ukraine is standing their ground & pushing Russia back. We did it, #Virginia & 12 other British colonies fought & defeated the greatest military in the world. It took 8 years. Finally the French fleet bottled up Chesapeake Bay & Cornwallis surrendered.
In between however, many dark moments. Rode horses or marched, weapons were not so lethal. No threat of Armageddon. But we had help from France, our oldest ally, Poles who fought 4 freedom from Russia, Pulaski; Kovats(Hungarian),Von Steuben. For freedom, a new enlightenment idea.
Although there were no doomsday weapons then, bottling up the Chesapeake Bay, preventing British ships from getting reinforcements to Cornwallis was very much akin to closing the sky. The French closed the seas. @GeneralClark

Self-organized student actions, protests + walkouts are continuing non-stop throughout the United States against the passage of a variety of authoritarian anti-LGBTQ+ bills. A thread on recent actions. #TDOV #DontSayGay #LGBTQ
While largely ignored in the media, there's been a massive wave of walkouts, protests, and self-organized student actions over the past month.
Last Tuesday, "Disney employees and their allies staged a walkout from various departments and products to protest the company’s donations to the Republican legislators behind Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill."

🚨🚨🚨I’m thrilled to release today a new mini docu-series about the power of symbols, memory, and story through an exploration of Monument Ave. in Richmond, VA.

New episodes drop every day, so be sure to check back for more.

Here’s the first one. Let me know what you think!
In part 2 of this mini docuseries we look at the Robert E. Lee monument and how such statues helped create a narrative of white supremacy in the Jim Crow era.
#History #CivilWar #Monuments
Monuments matter because they are symbols. Symbols matter because symbols tell stories. Stories matter because stories make us who we are.

Part 3 of this mini docuseries tackles why we must remove Confederate monuments.

@samshirazim @MandHF It’s harmful to US Congress candidates @RepSpanberger @RepElaineLuria @JenniferWexton are the greater need 4 Dems but McAuliffe only cares abt him, since he owes very big debt to some dangerous people, Hoffa the younger,whom TM visited fall 2019 in exchange 4 Dems delivering.
@samshirazim @MandHF @RepSpanberger @RepElaineLuria @JenniferWexton Long story, but Hoffa stepped down at McA request & has gotten zero that he was promised. These are people who always collect their debts.But only field of play McAuliffe has is VA & Vademocrats @VAHouseDems @VaSenateDems owe McA whose $100 MIL non-FEC compliant PAC elected them.
@samshirazim @MandHF @RepSpanberger @RepElaineLuria @JenniferWexton This is why I fight all the mob directed requests 1.drugs 2.gambling 3. Unions. Classic mob money laundering & union corruption. McAuliffe ties to Teamsters goes back 35+ yrs including ties to Hoffa. “Normal” Upstate NY & Dem union states from PhillyNJ NY NE but NOT #Virginia

Die Erklärung von #Biden , wonach am Mittwoch die russische Invasion starten könnte, hat eine ganze Welle von Evakuierungen in der #Ukraine ausgelöst.
Weitere Länder riefen ihre Bürger zur Ausreise aus dem Land auf, darunter auch Deutschland.
Auch Botschaften werden evakuiert.

Zur Erinnerung.
US-Präsident #Biden erklärte seinen europäischen Verbündeten, dass die russische Invasion am Mittwoch, den 16. Februar starten könnte.
Die Erkenntnis basiere auf "US-Geheimdienstinformationen".

@MargaretHoover I'm a great fan of you & @JohnAvlon, but you should not buy the attack ads of losing Dem candidates. I'm a Democrat. Here are #facts on the ground in #Virginia CRT is sold as something it is not. #FactsMatter It is pernicious, destructive,toxic, and more. @Acosta
#CancelCulture attacks #Mathematics Opponents of CRT are NOT all right wing. The people who elected @GlennYoungkin were Biden voters, Asian parents, black parents who want better schools for their children. Asians are being hurt. Below: CA lowers standards

@MargaretHoover @JohnAvlon @Acosta @CondoleezzaRice articulates the issue best. But there is a disturbing expansion of a surveillance state. I don't see masks or vax as that, but BBB contained bank surveillance, #MerrickGarland actions described below, threadreaderapp.com/thread/1456648…
