(1) I #resisted following the March for Our post-birth Lives but some of the photos are too good not to share. In this one, a proud American NRA member who happens to be black peacefully protests the idiocy. Arguably, he has more at stake than most of the kids marching.
(2) If given the chance, I can make a very strong case for African Americans and "people of color" benefiting from this administration more than other groups. But the Left isn't interested in hearing it and resorts immediately to the expired race card.
(3) As @Dloesch is constantly telling us, black males are one of the groups, if not the group, most affected by gun homicides, especially in certain large cities, that have coincidentally been held by Democrats for many decades, and are supposed gun free zones (aka killing zones)
(4) So the first photo in this thread immediately grabbed my attention: a black man standing up to disinformed Leftist marchers: peaceful, reasonable, courteous & determined to protect his God given & Constitution-affirmed right to personal & national self defense. Thank you Sir.
(5) My dear, the best way to protect kids is WITH guns.

ICYMI, the school safety laws passed in the omnibus spending bill this week will see large numbers of kids now protected at school by trained armed adults. Thank you @KyleKashuv @senorrinhatch & @realDonaldTrump.
(6) In the hands of bad guys and gals, they do. Which is why a majority of Americans want good guys and gals to have them. You're welcome.
(7) The MSM photographer was probably trying to make some kind of point about empty school buses parked near AF1 in Florida today. Large vehicles are routinely parked around venues that protectees visit. #RadicalLiberalTerrorism using guns is an ever present danger.
(8) That's fine sweetie, no one ever talked about forcing anyone to be armed. That's the kind of thing that national socialist regimes do. Right after taking away the guns of citizens, for their "safety." Teachers should be willing to learn basic history.
(9) An example of 2A protecting 1A. Isn't it great to live in a country where people are free to express their views in public, to a Police officer, without being arrested like in the UK, where gun rights were lost & people in 2018 are jailed for exercising free speech.
(10) Studies show that #TDS reduces cognitive ability. Sad!

BTW, every politician has make up done before appearing on TV. And?
(11) Thoughts*

BTW, thoughts and prayers do help good people feel comforted and supported by others. Biologically, we are social animals. #ScienceMatters
(12) I like existing law too. Fun fact: while you were preparing for this march earlier in the week, Republicans were pushing for the law signed yesterday by POTUS, that strengthens background checks considerably & would've prevented #SutherlandSprings and #Parkland. Welcome.
(13) Columbine, Newtown, Parkland. Yes, like most other mass shootings, these would have been prevented if the laws that Republicans got passed this week had been in place. Conversely, no Democrat proposals would have prevented them. Reading is hard, I know.
(14) I don't know. It depends on how long Democrats keep beating the dead horse of hatred toward political opponents, and how soon we can get things like constitutional carry, better mental health laws & #DrainTheSwamp of people like Scott Israel.
(15) The world doesn't get a vote. Americans do & they don't vote for Democrats in enough numbers to earn the right to amend the Constitution or appoint SCOTUS & praise be to God they never will. #ThankYouTrump #Originalism #Gorsuch #FlipTheSCOTUS #ItsHappening #TeachCivicsAgain
(16) Well, we DO ban certain people from society for a time by imprisoning them when they commit offenses like murder. Your teachers should have taught you about things like nuance, critical thinking, and reading about history. But they were padding their pension scheme instead.
(17) "Only a sh1thole country would make kids march for their lives." "if we can ban peanuts in schools surely we can ban guns." Weird how in the sh1thole countries the only people with guns are violent criminals & the state, isn't it?
(18) Don't worry, that will be quite easy to do.
(19) In the case of people who vote Democrat, all of it.
(20) You want to know how many kids the NRA has killed today? The answer is the same as my nickname for Barry, ie Zero.
(21) California teachers of the year.

That explains a lot, actually.
(22) One of these signs claims we can't buy tide pods in America. I suspect that's not the case, but if you want to know why we might restrict the sale of tide pods, the inane slogans on these signs might give you a clue.
(23) "Arm teachers with resources not guns."

We did, but you spent them on over-priced bureaucrat salaries, political bribes, organizing teacher union participation in Democrat campaigns, and forcing unwitting minors to stand in the cold with Leftist political signs.
(24) In that case, you better get your parents to enrol you in a school that's properly protected, & maybe move to a county that doesn't vote for criminals like Scott Israel.

I could do this all day... their assertions are so easy to counter.

Well said, @DonnaLeeSun. I have the same approach.

Donna is "Unapologretically Canadian."

I am Unapologetically New Zealander/Kiwi. Granted, "sorry" has a special meaning in Canada, eh? But our countries do have a lot in common. Mini-thread:
I really get what Donna is saying in her Twitter bio:

"Trumpism has a strong foothold in Canada & we ignore it at our peril. Pay attention, esp. to PP, former PM Harper & idiot Premiers!"

The same is true of New Zealand, Australia, and our OG mothership: The UK.
PP stands for Pierre Poilievre, who became the leader of Canada's conservative party on 10 September 2022.

For me it's super simple: Far right extremism gained a foothold in the US, only to be rejected by majorities of voters multiple times since. Because #DemocracyWins.

"Misogyny" is a trigger word for the far right-controlled Republican party. But the ideology is real, and it can lead to people getting killed.

Bryan Kohberger
George Huguely
Elliot Rodger
Andrew Tate
Donald T****

#RespectWomen is a public health and safety issue.
Evidently, my above use of the term misogyny has triggered a few of them.

They're trying to insinuate that Kohberger was a liberal which, even if true, would have nothing to do with the points made in my tweet. We already know several things about him, and his crimes...
Further, when writing the above list of 5 known and/or confirmed misogynists, some of whom have killed at least one woman, I considered a range of factors that put them on that list.

I want to encourage discussion about misogny and the targeting of women by violent offenders.

"Elections are decided by women." So true.

Esp. the 2020 US presidential election, and others where right wing governments were (and will soon be) punished for anti- public health and safety, anti-science, ignorant approaches to pandemic response.

We manage household health!
Do politicians and their advisers get this yet? In most households, it is one or more women who take basic health and safety seriously, & who develop a superior knowledge base due to our more complex biology, higher rates of illness, & greater need for infection control measures.
Of course there are many men with the same health knowledge and risk management priorities as women, but we are talking about "in general" here, and how that applies to elections.

Gotta laugh, my tweet generated the following reply from a maga account:

"Ukraine flag in bio"

Ad hominem/genetic fallacy is all they have. They deflect by targeting the player not the ball. Because playing the ball is too hard for them. It requires honesty & courage.

I recognize this form of gaslighting because I learned it from others and even used it, during my time* in Cult 45. (* Ended TWO years ago, OK?)

Any sign that someone is outside the cult is used as a way to disregard whatever the person says.

I proudly attach 🇺🇦 to my a/c...
And I will keep the Ukraini flag on my account for as long as it takes. Full independence, with pre 2014 borders, nothing less will do.

Cult 45ers viscerally hate Ukraine and Ukrainians.

They have to, in order to protect the scaffold of lies they have been fed.

Thread: Mass shooting in a Walmart store, Chesapeake, VA

Here is the latest at 4am Eastern. At 8am Eastern, local police will hold a media briefing.

Yet another shooting. There are some relatively easy ways to prevent most of them...

I'm talking about changing the way domestic violence incidents are handled, and doing more to put long term distance between known DV offenders and their legal access to guns.

An idea best espoused by the outstanding @BeauTFC. Link to follow.

Thread: The future of Twitter

I wonder what price between $8 billion and $44 billion Elon Howard Hughes Musk might consider to sell this vital pro-democracy communications hub before he completely destroys it.

I mean, that's his goal, right?
He paid waaaay too much for it. Value currently estimated at $8 billion. Surely there are billionaires out there with the ability to build a consortium to entice it out of his grubby little hands?

There's a good argument for the US federal government buying it, too...
Or a group of countries. It's not all about the US, you know.

What does the Putin regime have on Musk, that could get him to over-spend so much money? The global fascist movement is the only winner out of this. Or was it the Mercers?
