The Lincoln Project is soliciting donations to flip the GA Senate, and it is unconscionable.

Do not give them a penny.

A thread. 1/ Image
/2 Lincoln Project says they’re targeting R and R-leaning voters. But research has found anti-Trump ads like theirs are ineffective in swing states.

And indeed, Trump won a LARGER % of Republican & R-leaning voters than in 2016.

So why did LP take on this failing strategy? Image
/3 Because their real audience isn’t Republicans. It’s liberals. It’s people who ALREADY don’t like Trump. They’re producing liberal porn to make money.

Why spend big money on shit like a Times Square billboard in heavy blue NYC?…
/4 They made over $67M pretending to swing voters, and they’re launching a media empire. A Republican-led media empire.…
5/ The Lincoln Project is taking your money to build the GOP.

These men want to save the Republican Party’s reputation to get GOP wins, not Dem wins. One of the founders, Steve Schmidt, was Howard Schultz’s campaign strategist.… Image
/6 GOTV in GA, as other swing states, was done by local groups: @NewGAProject, @fairfightaction

They registered hundreds of thousands voters, knocked called & reminded, gave rides to polls, engaged ppl on issues they care about. This is where GA $ must…
/7 The Lincoln Project — rich white Republican men working to strengthen the future of the GOP — soliciting money for Georgia, which was won by the sweat of savvy, local Black women, is disgusting.

And counterproductive. Do not send them a dime.

When #LightsForLiberty was an idea a few of us activists were batting around, we never dreamed hundreds of thousands would mobilize worldwide. I’m awestruck.

But I’ll still consider it a failure if ppl go home & think they’ve done enough just by showing up tonight. /1 2500 pack Lafayette Square at DC’s Lights for LibertyPart of the crowd at a Boston L4L: huge crowd filling the streets and sidewalks.

My greatest hope is that every person who showed up at @Lights4Liberty tonight left ready to absolutely THROW DOWN in the fight against current US immigration policy and practice.

And that ppl left with tangible plans for how to do so.

I have some suggestions. /2
Here are some @Lights4Liberty action steps. Cuz tonight wasn’t the action. It’s what comes next that matters.

1) Find local immigration rights orgs near u. Follow them on social media, join their email list, donate $. I guarantee they need $ & know how to use it well. /3
