I'm going to start here with this political disinfo pattern. It's important to understand that this is exactly how stop the steal started as a hashtag in the 2016 election and then landing at #J6
let me finish my thoughts on this before I continue my data mining.

“there might very well be shenanigans, as there were in the 2020 election.” His campaign website has a link to a “Stop CA Fraud” website.

we all know there was no fraud. yet this is what Elder said
Here's the part that no one seems to get. If you pre-planning a loss by saying your opponent stole it. There are several things happening. 1. You are a sore loser 2. You clearly know you can't win and aren't telling your supporters tho your internal polling tells you differently.
3. Like the aftermath of 2020 which you are now modeling your campaign off of you are prepping unfounded lawsuits wondering which one will stick.
4. if you win you will take that position and say absolutely nothing but dare your opponent to say anything while you repeat "I won"
what's important for this #CARecall is that there is a complete prepping to have mobs show up in places to intimidate. We are jumping over this part a lot. He's not going to "retaliate" himself like #AgentOrange45 but his supporters like Rose and others will.
Here is the part where this sits.
"where people can report suspicious voting activity or sign a petition demanding a special legislative session to investigate an election that isn’t even over."

It's already happened in several other states. So why not replicate the model.
If this is the new American political strategy then I don't know how we are claiming to be exceptional.
"where people can report suspicious voting activity or sign a petition demanding a special legislative session to investigate an election that isn’t even over." #CARecall
From the other loser #AgentOrange45 “Does anybody really believe the California Recall Election isn’t rigged?”

The interesting turn on this one is going to be that Elder is a Black repub. So there will be more interesting things said that I'm sure will include race. #CARecall
If you've demonized VBM. When states have been using this since before the 2020 Covid election now you have a problem.

"Republican National Committee for California, said she made a video with her husband showing how they cast ballots by mail and urging everyone to do the same"
I find this interesting when this was the mainstay of how most Repubs counted on winning.

"An overwhelming majority of California voters cast ballots by mail even before the pandemic, and no widespread voter fraud issues have surfaced."
but why would Elder do this in advance? that part is easy the electorate is mostly dem. Also, everyone remembers when the Terminator was Governor. #CaliforniaRecallElection Image
Now here is the social media part. The one that lends itself to digital voter suppression. How many people did this happen to? But it doesn't matter the spread of the misinformation about this is what matters. That's where we are. An "official" says... Image
But here's the reality. This is actually evidence that if a ballot goes in and you didn't know it when you show up it's sitting there in the system. That's called election integrity. You get to kick that ballot out. But guess what you can send a ballot in and still do this.
now I can conspiracy theory with the best of them. What if I did VBM and showed up just to make a scene to be recorded and posted. We know this is happening at the CRT school board debates. But let's not digress we have enough misinfo out there.
"LA County Registrar’s Office said the error was caused by some settings on computers used to check in voters before issuing ballots. The office said those affected were allowed to cast provisional ballots, which act as placeholders until voter eligibility is determined."
Now which one do you think is going to spread the most about "voter fraud" "election integrity"

Note: disinfo spreads 6:1
There are concerns that are mentioned that has to do with my Pillow guy who released documents that should not be released. I wonder if anything is going to be done about that. apnews.com/article/techno… Image
Yet, with all these antics happening who is showing up to harass.. I mean monitor election officials. Image
All I can say is we are watching and documenting the patterns!! But if you ask me these are new political tactics that don't seem to be slowing down. But most importantly going unchecked.

A White friend admitted that's it really too hard to be an ally to me. That WP get to say that and they can walk away. They know we can't it's not an option and there lies privilege with a capital P.
I'm saying this after being in rooms where Black immigrants along with WP wanted to know why can't we agree that things are better. They literally acknowledged slavery still exists in the 13th via prisons but deny the effects of systemic racism. I was removed from the room.
We constantly said this is what all foreigners who come to this country say to us. They said it must be something to it because they are just an individual here. Another WP talking point. When I pushed back to say that's what WP say to us they rejected it.

a few quick things I'm seeing in videos about the Texas ban. This is not a bounty on the person who are pregnant. it's about those that assist in the abortion.

The framing is to dry up the resources and support system around her. The way an abuser operates.
Abortions are still happening. Clinics are not closed. But this leads to the next thing being said.

"underground" networks!!

This is an epic-level offense to BW. I'll explain in the next tweet but see below if want to help before I go off.
This country specifically Women, ie WW, tend to remove our race from issues about reproductive discussions. It's a very problematic but common messaging and framing. It needs to end.

“Through our research, we have found that extremist voices from Conservative media have dominated the online discussions and that Black scholarship, which teaches Critical Race Theory in higher academic institutions, has been silenced…” — @digitalsista link.medium.com/wSM8JTqZGib
Months of research and data collection lead us to the conclusion that Conservative Media isn't just controlling the discourse with mostly disinformation but that left-leaning media is helping to amplify instead of counter the narratives that are leading to legislation.

I'm going to talk about sundown towns in this thread today. I've been in several rooms on CRT and other aspects of the way we look at laws but also "the rules are the rules" framing that continues to go around. For most of us the rules and laws are for some.
Now. I've said this many times. Sundown towns still exist. Signs are still posted and Sirens go off. Yet I'm told over and over sundown towns are illegal. Asking for you so why are the signs and sirens still existing?
"The rules of a sundown town were simple: Black people were allowed to pass through during the day or go in to shop or work, but they had to be gone by nightfall. Anyone breaking the rules could risk arrest, a beating or worse." apnews.com/article/virus-…

Testosterone is not a drug y'all. It's a natural hormone. I don't know who needs to hear this but it odd to think we all don't both have both estrogen and testosterone naturally.
And I just in case folk get all literal on me. BOTH men and women have both estrogen and testosterone. If this is news to you read a book. They are hormones that have specific functions.
so if you want to come into this thread about masculine or feminine energy like that isn't a social construct versus biology. I'm not here for it. that's not this convo.

Just a reminder why we are not happy.
a personal note. I used to choreograph hip-hop dances. When I went off to camp. I would do the shows there and there was always this girl who I won't name that called herself a trained dancer that would always show up and try to take my moves. This is OLD... yes she was a Becky
and I will say it. One of the things that got me in trouble at home was the jams and dance battles. My competition gene was fierce and there were people who didn't like to lose to a girl. I had a crew that kept me safe.
