ZHIRINOVSKII AND PUTIN'S NEO-IMPERIALISM
1. Yesterday, one of the culprits of #Russia's return to imperialist #ultranationalism, the #fascist #VladimirZhirinovsky, died. On Zhirinovskii's form of #Russianfascism: researchgate.net/publication/25… @FFRAFAction @KomRex_UniJena @FascismJourna
2. His #LDPR's victory, with 22.92% in the first post-Soviet multi-party parliamentary elections in December 1993, was an insufficient but necessary pre-condition for Moscow's military intervention in #Chechnya one year later.
@russian_monitor @ElectionsCenter @russia_matters
3. The #FirstChechenWar of 1994-1996 and its deep repercussions on #Russian society were arguably the beginning of the end of post-Soviet proto-democracy. See: rferl.org/a/journey-into…

In April 2019, influential foreign vloggers such as @migrationology, @evabiankaz, @RosieGabrielle1,
@Travellight_, @LostWithPurpose, were invited to Islamabad Tourism Summit . @Dawn images.dawn.com/news/1182267. They have been made in charge of 🇵🇰Pakistan PR to the attention
of western holiday makers. In Islamabad, these influencers were used to boost an international attractive image of the country 🇵🇰. It was a strong evidence of the government commitment to this foreign tourism strategy. However, such an impulse is facing resistance,

THREAD - ACTION ALERT: #DismantleHinduphobia. Urge universities to dissociate themselves from the "Dismantling Global Hindutva" conference and not support bigotry against Hindus. Here's why.👇🏾1/n cohna.org/dismantlehindu…
As Hindus, we welcome any open exchange of ideas and the freedom of academics to pursue scholarly inquiry without restraint. However, this conference falsely paints Hindus as purveyors of extremism, actively denies the genocide of Hindu people, and most troublingly...2/n
...labels those who disagree as "Hindutva," which the conference organizers define as Hindu extremism. 3/n

AFGHANISTAN UPDATE 🧵:
I am currently working with 28 people on the ground trying to get to #HamidKarzai airport—1/3 are kids under 12. They are US citizens, legal permanent residents or immediate family members of USCs. The situation on the ground is NOT as it’s being reported:
The Taliban is reporting that they are not stopping foreign nationals from accessing the airport: WRONG.

There are crowds of thousands and, per one of my people: [translated] “There were taliban pushing people away and not letting anyone through, even with a US passport.”
The US Military & Embassy are reporting the airport is fully secure and they’re getting 500-600 people out per hour: MISLEADING.

US Forces have control of one side of the airport, but the civilian side is completely Taliban-controlled and they’re not letting people through.

In recent months, the global Hindu community has begun to have greater discussion about the subtle, and increasingly overt, bigotry and discrimination practicing Hindus face in academic and other spaces here in the U.S.
You may be aware that Hindu American students - as young as middle schoolers - are being confronted by classmates, asked if they are terrorists, simply for being practicing Hindus. Some Hindu American youth, traumatized, confused, and shamed by the ways in which Hinduism
is misrepresented and stereotyped in textbooks, in entertainment media, and on social media, are beginning to distance themselves from their families and their ancestral traditions. College campuses are a breeding ground for Hinduphobic encounters, in no small part because

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe

When you want to know why
-women & minorities leave medicine
-why research lacks data to serve needs of anyone not white & male
and/or
-why different mortality rates in patients by gender, race, SES

this is why

As women, LGBTQ, minorities, disabled enter or advance in medicine, this professor’s public stance will be cited to mislabel having #ethics as “lacking #professionalism

I'm going to tweet photos of some of the people who support @realDonaldTrump and the rest of this #IllegitimateRegime. Just to let the world know the company his oh-so-Christian and other supporters keep.
Be afraid. Then #FightBack

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO EMBRACE #Drumpf & his message of #hatred, #WhiteSupremacy, #intolerance, #racism, #bigotry, #xenophobia, #misogyny etc.
And after seeing these images, I want ONE notable #Christian preacher to explain to me & the rest of the world how/why s/he can support #Drumpf, whose message, history & lifestyle is antithetical to all that Jesus preached.
But not one will step forward b/c there IS no defense.

Remember the belief that meat is the best or only protein source is a #racist belief, discounting the way the majority of the cultures ate. #thesexualpoliticsofmeat #feminism #vegan /3
A #masculinity made anxious & unsettled seeks to re-establish itself by invoking #redmeat; you can find this happening at key points in US history: the rise of immigration at the end of the 19th century, after the Vietnam War, after 9/11, & during the #Trump 2016 campaign /4
The scholar #VasileStanescu discusses the work of #EMDuPuis who suggested that it was not a coincidence that colonialism, nativist union sentiment, and the decrease in the cost of meat occurred simultaneously at the end of the 19th century. #xenophobia #manhoood #meateating /5

#Xenophobia and #racism, based on my observations, have 3 main causes -
1. Primal Reflex
2. Defence Against Inadequacy
3. Guilty Pleasure

Explanations follow.
1. Primal Reflex: This is evolutionary, a result of mostly homogenous groups living and evolving together, where a heterogenous encounter almost always resulted in conflict. Fortunately, humans have evolved faster to overcome this reflex.
For example, trade flourished between heterogenous groups after the world population had exceeded a threshold and there was surplus production (both due to agriculture).

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

As we witness the devastating effects of the #pandemic on the #stateless, we join 82 civil society actors in urging states, donors & other stakeholders to promote & protect the rights of the stateless in their #COVIDー19 responses.

amnesty.org.in/news-update/jo…
As the #pandemic crisis takes its toll, the stateless are among those paying the highest of prices. Many face increased #racism and #xenophobia and are denied access to critical health services and information (in a language they understand) on prevention and treatment.
Many are also fearful of seeking assistance, as they are at-risk of being arrested, detained & subject to removal proceedings. Others are excluded from desperately needed emergency relief – as states require digital identity or documentation establishing proof of citizenship.

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged). japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/05/0…

It’s often said that Scotland’s greatest export has been her people.

The term "New Scots" was primarily used to describe people of any background who have immigrated to Scotland since the 1945 as modern immigrants. #migration #history
During 1930s, many Italians who arrived in the city set up in business in the catering trades, selling ice cream, confectionery, tobacco, and fish and chips.

The Union of Italian Traders, set up in 1928, had a membership of 1,000 in Scotland ten years later.
On 10 June 1940 Italian dictator Benito Mussolini declared war on Britain. This sparked off anti-Italian riots, resulting in widespread damage to Italian shops. In Glasgow, the worst incidents took place in Maryhill, Govan and Tradeston.

So.. I decided to make the #kovidiots comics in to a separate thread. This is just me trying to find humor in hypocrisy and idiocy during the pandemic. It maybe not for everyone, but that's ok. It wasn't meant to please anyone.

We strongly denounce the systematic efforts of those who attack Europeans with Asian origins over #coronavirus. This disgusting #racist & #xenophobic rhetoric divides our people & stands to threaten our shared European values. #JeNeSuisPasUnVirus @KMTaylorBerlin @MPriv_o @_LICRA_ Image
@KMTaylorBerlin @MPriv_o @_LICRA_ @ARDIEuroParl @EP_Justice @FriendsofEurope @EURightsAgency @GVedeux @helenadalli @forum_ADYFE @PICUM_post @razzismobs @MDI_UK "In the US, government propaganda and pop culture at the time spread wildly racist and inaccurate images of Chinese people as unclean, uncivilized, immoral, & a threat to society."

Thread 1.| Protests and strikes today in #Lesvos, #Chios, #Samos, #Leros, #Kos against the presence of #hotspots and the plans for new closed reception and detention centers. All the trade associations and local authorities call for the protest. #OpentTheIslands #Refugeesgr
2. The main tone is that the local population is angry with the situation and the negligence of the government. In ##Chios & in Lesvos a lot of people participated in the protests. The officials' speeches were pointing the need to stop the new centers and this inhuman situation
3. The general atmosphere from the published texts seems to be mainly against #refugees, strengthening #racism and #xenophobia, although there are also voices with a #humanitarian approach like the union of Chios Psychiatrists politischios.gr/koinonia/sullo…

Sentiments aside, we all must begin to take responsibility. Stop offering yourself as a chattel to people seeking whom to sell. The grass is not greener anywhere. Even during the slave trade days we forget it was a transaction & our fathers got something back in exchange.
At Law this is called Consideration which must be adequate but not necessarily sufficient. By adequacy of consideration it means that for a lawful agreement to be made between two parties, the offeree, also known as the beneficiary, must give in return, a fair price,...
... that is either in equal measure or reasonably proportional to the value given by the offeror, also known as the benefactor. Our forefathers sold their sons for chocolates and mirrors. It was considered adequate for the trade despite the unethical premise.
