Wie geht ihr damit um, wenn Menschen in eurer Umgebung die Klimakrise & den planetary clusterfuck noch nicht begriffen haben?

Ich hab bis vor ein paar Monaten immer die Fakten runter gebetet. Inzwischen mach ich das gar nicht mehr. Hier meine Erfahrungen:
Wer es jetzt & hier nicht gecheckt hat, hat sehr wahrscheinlich keinen Mangel an Fakten, sondern steckt evtl in der Leugnung & Verdrängung. Es gibt den Begriff "implicatory denial", der eine Leugnung beschreibt, die sich nicht auf die Tatsachen selbst bezieht, sondern auf die
moralischen, psychischen, politischen & gesellschaftlichen Konsequenzen.

In fast allen Gesprächen, die ich führe, mit Familie, Kolleg:innen und in Aktionen auch einfach Passant:innen, basiert die Leugnung auf drei Lügen/Illusionen, die aufrecht erhalten werden müssen, um

Elon Musk is supporting the party that is opposed to:

📚 History
🌈 Equality
♀️ Reproductive Freedom
👩‍⚕️ Healthcare
⛽️ Lowering gas costs
💊 Lowering drug costs
🧓 Medicare
👵 Social Security
🌎 Climate Action
and even
🗳️ Democracy

Why does @elonmusk hate America?
Here's @elonmusk explaining that he will support the GOP despite the fact they are the party of "corporate evil" & "religious zealotry."

The only reasons he gave for abandoning women, minorities, democracy and the planet are his animosity toward "unions" & "trial lawyers."
Elon Musk wishes Americans were as easy to exploit as Chinese workers.

He hates that unions gave us:
- Weekends
- End of child labor
- 40-hour work week
- 8-hour work day
- Unemployment benefits
- Workers compensation
- Employer-based health coverage
- Family & Medical Leave Act

Natalia Narochnitskaya:

"È importante capire cos'è #Azov. Un malinteso comune è che questo sia un reggimento. E questo è assolutamente sbagliato, Azov non è affatto una formazione militare, ma piuttosto un movimento politico paramilitare dell'#Ucraina.

⬇️
#Azov è guidato dall'SNA, un'assemblea social-nazionalista (organizzazione politica). I nomi sono cambiati, ma l'essenza rimane la stessa: è un'organizzazione #neonazista di Kharkov, attorno alla quale si è formato l'intero attuale movimento Azov.

⬇️
È importante capire chiaramente che non sono nazionalisti ucraini, ma #neonazisti, sostenitori della #WhiteSupremacy. Un movimento analogo all'NSDAP (gli stessi nazisti del 1920-45).
Sotto l'SNA c'è un movimento politico di massa: il #NationalKorp.

@AOC You cannot DENY a living thing. Ya’ll this is fkn dumb! Abortions KILL BABIES. Argue semantics all you want, but you look like idiots. YOU ALL want to be able to kill your babies AND you want the rest of us HUMANS WITH LOGIC to pretend you aren’t. YOU CANT EVEN ADMIT (cont)
TO YOURSELF what you are actually doing. You BLAME Christians? That’s insanity. it’s 2022 and we have neurosurgeons and physicists. It is not ancient times, and we NO LONGER depend on organized religion for morality. Do you believe you have the right to kill your 10 year old?
How about your 6 year old? Perhaps tour 2 year old or 1 year old? You argue for the right to choose to kill the baby at ANY POINT during gestation, even in the birth canal. You wouldn’t kill your toddler right? The semantic game is over, there’s too much turmoil.

🚫No, #Conservatism does NOT equal #WhiteSupremacy 🚫 And here’s proof…

Over the last few days, the #MSM has been conflating conservatives and white supremacists as if they are one in the same. This thread will detail WHY and HOW that is simply untrue…

🪡 👀 ⬇️

1/
Since the #BuffaloMassacre major media outlets and certain journalist have been tirelessly attempting to tie words from the killer back to those of @TuckerCarlson 📢

The problem is these reports deliberately take words out of context, while ADDING context to imply racism…

2/
First, a defense is only necessary following an attack 💥 Not-so-clever leftists tend to forget they are the ones fledging the assault

Next, quoting @TuckerCarlson’s words, the author attempts to ADD context, turning reference to political-affiliation in a racial attack…

It brought tears to my eyes when I heard about what happened in Buffalo as innocent good people were gunned down in cold blood. It personally reminded me of the painful suffering families experience when they lose someone at the hands of white supremacy & domestic terrorism. 1/4
My grandfather fought in WWII against the Nazis and racism. When he returned home he bought land so my great-grandfather could stop sharecropping on a white supremacist’s land. 2/4
Once the white man found out about my great-grandfather’s intent to pay him off and leave, he drove to my grandfather’s house, shot and killed my great-grandfather, and went home to smoke a cigarette on his porch.

No arrest. No news story. Just #WhiteSupremacy at work. 3/4

While I was knocking doors people didn’t say good bye to me they said be safe. When my best friend leaves my presence she says be safe & make good decisions. Being black anywhere is dangerous & we need to be honest about that fact. The murders yesterday were tragic & horrendous
Since the leaked #scotus decision my timeline has been flooded by people claiming to be pro life lamenting the loss of potential lives yet after 10 black people were murdered I see no response no outrage against #WhiteSupremacy, #gunviolence or calls to ban or limit guns.
Time for a whole sale call out on racism those who promote white supremacy and those who promulgate gun violence. Time to center on the fact #blackpeople are impacted the most by guns @shannonrwatts & @GabbyGiffords are calling out the gun violence time to include the #racsim

#WhiteSupremacy Ted Nugent Rittenhouse trend with Buffalo Tops Shooting: The real issue is the easy access and carrying of guns and cheap ammo, high-capacity magazines and high-power guns that fit in backpacks, etc. #GunSense #2ndAmendment #2A
2/ #2A US Constitution #FederalistSociety "original intent" folks: I’m okay if you own arms if you're serving in a well-regulated militia with 18th Century rifles, muskets and pistols. Meanwhile, another #massshooting in #Buffalo w/ 10 dead, 3 wounded. khou.com/article/news/c…
3/ A #massshooting is defined as four+ victims. #Benghazi had four dead. #2ndAmendment people think Benghazi was bad but think anyone should have guns. ALL gun transactions MUST require a background check including gifts. FBI background checks are weak. #GunSense

Horrific. A gunman wearing military-style clothing and body armor kills at least 10 people at a supermarket in #Buffalo, #NewYork#racism, misogyny, lax regulations and #gunviolence are interlinked. US policymakers are equally responsible! #endgunviolence apnews.com/article/buffal…
I live in upstate NY and visit the local #Topssupermarket — I have seen young men dressed as military personnel. The #Buffalo #shooting is just a chilling reminder that U.S. civilians own 400 million #guns —almost half of civilian held firearms globally.
120+ guns/ 100 residents
In 2015 @MotherJones published a special investigation detailing the cost of #gunviolence:$229 billion a year (2012 data). $8.6 billion in direct spending—emergency/medical care & $221 billion in “indirect” costs, quality of life of victims.

#NZ This is a long thread on the issue of harassment & threats made against #WomenInLeadership, primarily #WomenInPolitics.

⬇️ Reviews incidents over time, highlights the danger & escalation of #misogyny & the real life consequences on the personal & our democratic institutions.
This thread is being woven, the week Michael Cruickshank was sentenced to jail in #NZ for threatening to blow our #WomanPrimeMinister’s head off & to “..wipe you off this f---planet”- Also arrested this week Richard Sivell who has allegedly been posting threatening messages.
Here you can take a look at #OnlineAbuse ~ ⬇️ is a really useful article by @shesource & @WMCLive that names online hostile behaviour, how it is that #Women are targeted, & explains why “online harassment exists on a continuum with offline violence”

🧵What is #rightwingextremism? A loose movement, characterized by a racially, ethnically and sexually defined nationalism. ... often framed in terms of white power, grounded in xenophobic exclusionary understandings of perceived threats posed by such groups as people of colour,
Jews, immigrants, the LGBTQ community and feminists.
Here are the 7 things you need to know:
1. COVID-19 had a significant impact on right-wing extremist activity in 2020.
2. Canadian right-wing extremists appear to be heavily influenced by US activity.
3. Right-wing extremist discussion of Canadian politics focused on Justin Trudeau and the New Democratic Party (NDP).
4. Right-wing extremists in Canada are drivers of disinformation.

A Classical Christian Education/University model school is opening in our town. It would be amazing to see a J&JW or #MakingBiblicalWomanhood book about Christian education & the lengths the religious right go to in order to indoctrinate their children in white supremacy.

A 🧵
First. What am I even taking about? Here's a definition from their national website:
This isn't new. I'm not here to get into theological arguments. But the rest of us ignore this to our own detriment. This level of organization is what keeps cranking out right-wing foot soldiers, incels, proud boys, etc. for gens to come. Conservatives have this down to an art.

Black people,

I am a one of the few Black psychiatrists that exist in our nation and I have a message for us:

Yes we are strong.

But it is IMPOSSIBLE to be strong ALL THE TIME.

Ignoring or downplaying sadness, anxiety, despair, and hopelessness does not help you.

Telling someone else to ignore, pretend, or downplay sadness, anxiety, despair, and hopelessness does not help them.

#OTD in 1865 the Thirteenth Amendment passed the House of Representatives, sending it to the states for ratification. The Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States “…except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted."
The amendment ended race-based chattel slavery in America, but did not rid the nation of forced labor, which exists through America’s prison system today. #13thAmendment #Constitution #slavery #HistoryMatters #CivilWar #USCivilWar #AmericanCivilWar #PoliticalHistory #knowhistory
Congress abolished slavery in Washington D.C. in 1862. The Emancipation Proclamation outlawed slavery in rebelling states Jan. 1, 1863 and former rebel states were forced to ban slavery in new state constitutions. Republicans in Congress still wanted a Constitutional Amendment.

#BlackConservatism isn't "lily-white" conservatism.

"Authentic black conservatism has always had the fundamental and explicit goal of opposing white supremacy."

— Kareim Oliphant

#BlackConservatives

If Burkean conservatism is a response to the French Revolution; African or Black conservatism, emerges out of, and in response to the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

@StephenAtHome Sorry but YOU need to know what #CRT is really about. It is NOT teaching "real history" of race. Marxist in premise & praxis, it teaches whiteness is evil, makes white children stand up & confess "I am white, I am privileged, I am an oppressor" & blacks can't learn

Hey Twitter! It's been a while. I used to write here all the time hanging out with #scifichat, #comicschat, #litchat, talking about #science, #tech, #autism and a dozen other topics which broadened my horizons and let me share my diverse interests in almost everything.
Then my life got incredibly busy. My son went to high school and coupled with his #autism, our lives became super-complex. I lost my job and my car gave up the ghost after four years of @Uber. Then the unthinkable, my wife experienced #renalfailure.
4 years ago, she underwent an operation for #peritoneal #dialysis. This form of at-home dialysis would let her take care of her renal needs at home avoiding the need for external #hemodialysis centers. In hindsight, this may have saved her life.

On the anniversary of the Jan. 6 #CapitolInsurrection, I’m reminded: This IS who we are. We are a nation of #WhiteSupremacy. As a counter to the US “this isn’t who we are” narratives related to #RacialInjustice, #StateViolence & prejudice, I’ve pieced together the following post.
The following are excerpts from my Jan. 2021 op-ed in @Truthout: “If @POTUS Wants to Confront White Supremacy, He Must Also End the #WarOnTerror.’”
"Solving the problem of #WhiteSupremacy is seen as a simple matter of removing those who embody it."
