The signers of this letter to the board of #WomensMarch are making two points, one procedural, the other substantive. Their procedural claim is that Women's March, Inc. is not governed with an open, inclusive, decision-making process. vibrantlyviolet.net/2019/09/26/ope…
That is true, and has always been true. It has always been run by a board, first a tiny board, now a much larger board, a board that made in the past and continues to make decisions that alienate one group or another of would-be supporters. For example, the unilateral decision of
the previous board to tolerate support for Farakkhan among its leadership shattered the goodwill WM had created for itself among millions of women and men through the initial, historic 2017 march, and brought the organization very low and less relevant. But those who supported

Since this is going to be in your newsfeeds in the morning - here’s a thread about me being voted off the board of @WomensMarch tonight 1/
A few hours ago, I was voted off the @WomensMarch national board. 2/
This followed an Islamophobic smear campaign led by the usual antagonists, who have long targeted me, my colleagues, and anyone else who dares speak out in support of Palestinian human rights and the right to self-determination. 3/

“Trump's supporters want chaos and destruction. When their bad drug high finally wears off, it won't be pretty.”

@KremlinAnnex⁩ ⁦@hr_indivisible@RepDonBeyer⁩ ⁦

New research on right-wing psychology points toward big trouble ahead salon.com/2019/09/17/don…
“Trump is unapologetic and unabashed in his contempt for American democracy and the rule of law. Many mental health professionals have concluded he is unwell. He lacks impulse control and evidences sociopathic behavior.”
“Trump acts like a self-styled mob boss — a corrupt bully who forces his subordinates to ‘kick up’ to him.

America’s own spies do not trust our unpredictable president to act responsibly with the country’s secrets.”

I wanted to say something for a few days.. now that I have had time to sit with it.. I will share.

I want to make something clear. We are all in this together. Its us vs. trump. Its not this group and that group vs. another group vs. trump.
1/
We are all in this together. We all want the same things here. We want this maddness of trump and administration to be done with. We don't want division between us. It doesn't help anything but furthering frustration.
2/
We need to look at the bigger picture here. Its not this group over that group. I can't stress that enough. Ive seen too much of that going on that I can't sit by anymore. Some resisters are giving up because of it. Let's stop this group division. Let's focus on the real problem

Is Bernie running against Obama?
He *-did* call for Obama to be primaried in 2012.
Running against Hillary AND Obama may be a tactical error and suggests that Sanders would not be a healing figure.
Also, if Sanders' surrogates are pushing these narratives, it's at his behest.
Also, just for the record, because I covered 2008, there were 240k at Obama's victory speech.
TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY THOUSAND.
I know math was an issue for Sanders' team in 2016, but the crowd for #BernieInChicago was equivalent to a concert venue. Still big. But not huge.
Also, 250,000 were at the #WomensMarch in Chicago on January 21, 2017. Which was in response to #HillaryClinton being denied the presidency and Trump being elevated by the Electoral College.

Facts do matter.
Let's work with those through 2020.

So I'm reading about the allegations of anti-Semitism agains #WomensMarch and Jesus, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?! This is more than tweeting support for Louis Farrakhan. Where are these people getting their information from?! This is dangerous garbage!
And this is just complete bullshit. I'm sorry. You can't disagree with someone's virulently anti-Semitic views and then go participate in events that they've organized. The hypocrisy here is unbelievable.
Also, dude, REALLY? "Private security firms employ a large number of Nation of Islam members..." where is the fucking source for this bullshit assertion? Jesus, if your hands weren't dirty, you'd just categorically deny it and let them go talk to the contractors.

While we're talking about the #WomensMarch #Antisemitism controversy, I want to remind everyone: it is entirely possible to believe that Israel is engaging in a genocidal war against the Palestinian people and NOT be an antisemite.
The conflation of the rejection of Zionism with antisemitism is nonsense. You can be a big old Jew, like me, and reject Right Wing Zionism like that espoused by Netanyahu, Sheldon Adelson and the like. You can be a big old Jew, like me, and reject the violent occupation.
You can be a big old Jew, like my dad and other traditional liberals (like Obama!), and believe wholeheartedly in the Zionist project - the creation of a Jewish State in what is now Israel - and still despise the Occupation, and work towards a Two State solution.

🚨BOOM! The #WomensMarch has “been in bed with the Nation of Islam since day one.” That’s right vagina hats you’ve been taking orders from
Anti-Semites but you called us the racist. Linda Sarsour travels with Farrakhan security.
The Nation of Islam is a designated hate group. #womensmarch

Why does @SenGillibrand believe members of an anti-Semitic hate group are extraordinary?

"As Founder of the Women’s March~my vision was to stand in solidarity for a fair, just and inclusive America and World~a world where women and all people, regardless of race, religion, gender, origin of birth, political affiliation are treated equally and fairly." @TeresaShookWM
"When we focus on our common goals and bring love, aloha & light to these goals, then we magnify our collective strength & solidarity ten thousand-fold. On January 21, 2017, when 5 million people around the world stood together~we did so in love & solidarity & without violence."

Did you know three co-chairs of the Women’s March have direct ties to Farrakhan and refuse to disavow? Linda Sarsour is one, when can we expect her apology for encouraging and engaging hateful anti-Semitic rhetoric?

You have to hand it to her, Mensch called her out AND made her Russian.

Why does George Soros want to collapse the border?
ANTIFA don't see themselves as losing America they see themselves as GAINING THE WORLD. Communism was a Global Revolution.
What do Islam and #Communism have in common? Why do the NOI hand out The Little Red Book of Mao Tze Tung? Why is NAZI-ism so similar to Communism? Why do NAZIS, Muslims, and Communists always persecute Jews?

You are something else - yes, you, the one reading this tweet. You don't even know what you're doing, or the significance of it, but take a moment, read this thread, and pat yourself on the back.

YOU have risen up to #resist. Without any centralized or organizational foundation, you helped grow a massive online movement. Through #FBRParty #FBR and other hashtag advocacy, you did this.
(2 of 8)
YOU have created an international coalition, bringing together a diverse group of people who are raising up to demand change, not just here in America but across the world. You have inspired people to speak up.

Hundreds of millions of men of our own species--even men we have loved, fed, comforted, and cared for our entire adult lives--would rather have sex with a robot or a scared teenage human trafficking victim than a loving, intelligent, willing woman of an appropriate age. #misogyny
Of course they support #Trump, of course they think the #MeToo movement is too hard on #louisck, of course they despise women like #HillaryClinton or Christine Blasey #Ford. Young or old, left or right, they've been brainwashed by the patriarchy from birth to despise women.
What are women to them, really? We're the non-men, the negative to their image, the shadow to their light. When we're young, we're a destination for their sperm and a source of orgasms. When we're older we're their home cook, nurse, maid or mommy--or we're nothing at all.

Linda Sarsour gets arrested again continuing to violate Sharia (Islamic law) w/ her form of Jihad, she proudly proclaims.
I'm still waiting for her mugshot w/out her hijab which is another violation under the very law she advocates.
#KavanaughConfirmation
Where's Linda Sarsour's mug shot w/out her hijab? I don't believe she was ever booked
It looks like they released her just as they did in NY when she was arrested at Trump Tower
She openly promotes Jihad against our government
How is she not listed as a #RadicalLiberalTerrorist ?
Let's not forget that not only does she advocate for Sharia & call for Jihad against US Gov & @POTUS

Who gave her a pass to get into the #KavanaughConfirmationHearings ?

@RobynUrback Mostly an excellent piece, until:
"For this scenario, the bigger-picture issue is more difficult to find; while the rise of the alt-right is a verifiable phenomenon, there is not the same degree of organized uprising on the left."
Let's discuss
@RobynUrback First credit form making the same FHIP point I made, and also echoing my point on mostly silence.
@RobynUrback "there is not the same degree of organized uprising on the left"
The evidence says otherwise.
Looking uspects social media profile, it shows him fully propagandised by the false narratives and hyperbole of our biased media

Calling on ALL #Resisters 📢

Are you Ready to TURN UP THE HEAT on this Treasonous Dictatorship? 💪

Are you ready to use the most effective tactics employed by successful #CivilResistance Movements in democratic countries?

ARE YOU READY TO WIN? ✊

If so PLEASE ENTER 👇
Study of successful #NonviolentCivilResistance mvmts use a combination of 3 tactics👇

"The Tea Party showed us how much
power can be leveraged when all 3 are used at
once. If hundreds of thousands of people
contribute in this way, Trump and the
Republicans won’t stand a chance."
It's ESSENTIAL to support ALL 3 tactics

Like a stool w/3 legs-ALL ARE REQIRED

In our #Resistance mvmt 2nd two tactics are STRONGLY supported (i.e. pressuring elected officials and promoting dire importance of voting ✊

Senate confirmed Brian Benczkowski.

Someone with big ties to Putin, and virtually zero courtroom experience is now the next in line to replace Rosenstein at Justice.

How much further, America? Why are we letting the GOP pretend this is normal?

IS EVERYONE IN AMERICA INSANE?
What is more preposterous? That this is happening, or that the @NYtimes, @washingtonpost @CNN keep putting up apologists and stooges to make everyone feel this is just Democracy at work.

ONLY A TOTAL FOOL COULD NOT SEE THE MULTIPLE LEVELS OF CORRUPTION AT PLAY HERE.
@nytimes @washingtonpost @CNN Your country is literally being ripped out from under you, and you have no choice but to just watch it happen, because someone has to act fast, but no one knows what that means.

And the enemy knows it. So keep watching. We are all but certain to lose it all.

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS globalnews.ca/news/4304951/c…
