(1) The gun control protests today were TINY. The kids are already getting bored with it. They probably celebrated 4/20 with a joint & forgot to leave the house to march.

I want to unpack one of these signs, where they try to use a lame argument for abortion on demand.
(2) "Republican law makers, stop protecting fertilized eggs and start protecting living children."

Take it from me, someone who used to make better arguments for abortion, that assertion is gonna fail at the first hurdle. First mistake: Life doesn't begin at birth. #Science
(3) It's easier for an abortion supporter to see a fetus as just a "fertilized egg." IMO the only stage of pregnancy where this even has the potential 2 be scientifically plausible is the first few days. The age at which they feel pain keeps being lowered by scientific discovery.
(4) Science is not only lowering the age at which a fetus feels pain, it's also lowering the age of viability outside the mother's body. (BTW, they started calling her a woman not a mother, and now they call her a person, so as not to upset women who want to be men. Seriously.)
(5) "Republican law makers" actually care about keeping their promises to their voters, so they're not about to break them just because pro-abortion teenagers demand it. The pro-life movement is growing in all age groups, incl the younger #ProLifeGen. Abolition is in sight.
(6) Tying the guns issue to the abortion issue is about the dumbest approach for either issue. If allowed to debate in an orderly fashion, conservatives easily win the argument for each one. The left's solution is to scream over our voices, taking the country toward civil unrest.
(7) The strongest argument for abortion on demand is the woman's bodily autonomy. Unfortunately for the left, that too fails, as soon as it's pointed out that half of babies are female. The argument for abortion after the age of viability (20 weeks) immediately fails, too.
(8) I don't expect the child holding the sign to understand the issue, since she prob has no one in her life who can explain it accurately. The smarter among them will do their own research, & prob join the #ProLifeGen. Those unwilling to open their mind? Good luck to them.

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?
