Thread. The night TFG was elected in 2016, both our young adult sons asked us - are we going to be ok here? My husband said - let’s make sure we all have our passports in order. That’s how clear it was the kind of racism & antisemitism he would stir up 2/ now look what we have: synagogues on high alert, Nazis openly harassing in Orlando, HBCU’s being targeted, hate crimes at the highest levels, our democracy in peril…

Voting rights needs to be federal. Period. Let’s do what we did when the GOP tried to take away health care. Remember? Call your senators. Tell them to pass Senate bill 1. Please PLEASE don’t tell me you have GOP senators. Take your power. Use your voice. It does not matter what you think they will do. Blow up the phones. Even if they don’t do what you say, at least you can say you did everything in your power

If you have a Republican Senator I hope you are calling them every day with your opinion on the #impeachment YOUR VOICE MATTERS Let me clarify: ESPECIALLY if you have a Republican Senator: CALL. it doesn’t matter what you think they will do. What matters is using your voice. That’s what democracy is. If you don’t think your voice counts, we are really lost.

In regards to GOP congresspeople feeling afraid for their lives: perhaps you didn't have your grown sons call you the night of the 2016 election, asking if we (as Jews) will be safe here now. Maybe you didn't hear your husband tell the family to get their passports in order /1 2/ just in case we had to flee. Maybe you thought that he couldn't be that bad -- but it was clear to anyone paying attention that he was dangerous. SURELY Jews, Muslims, Latinx, African Americans - we could have told you how terrified we were -

“I’ve think we lost Ken for a second” @msnbc (someone will find the clip bc I can’t stop laughing) This is why. My husband said to me - “he (Ken) sounds like you!”

Morning thoughts after the #Debates2020 We have been living in the midst of evil for 4 years. For all of us with tender hearts this has felt intolerable. /1 2/ Last night Donald trump has an opportunity to express empathy for the families of 220,000 dead Americans - many of whom died alone. He was not able to do so

The GOP & DJT have severely underestimated the depth of our fury. I'm no election expert but this is what I see in the long lines waiting to vote, & the enormous early voting #'s. Most of us have sacrificed in profound ways while DJT dances /1 2/ at his ego-filled, mask-less rallies, while McConnell laughs at a question on COVID relief, while Mike Lee shouts maskless in a hearing that shouldn't even be happening... Millions of us have not left our homes since March, struggled with work disruptions & unemployment

1/ It is absolutely a shanda (deep disgrace) that there has been no national mourning for 200,000+ Americans dead from covid. That, too, will have to wait until Biden. 2/ In addition McConnell & Trump didn’t even wait 24 hours before their attempt to go against RBG’s dying wish. & to call her granddaughter, who is in mourning, a liar. These people need to be defeated & decency returned.

1/ From Rabbi Emily Segal - "there is a Jewish tradition that those who die just before Rosh Hashanah are extraordinarily righteous & truly precious to God. We are taught that each Rosh Hashanah it is written who will live and who will die in the year to come... @caffeinatedrav 2/ "So last Rosh Hashanah, it was determined that RBG would die before this next year came to be...God did not want to let this precious, righteous person go... " #RIPRBG #RoshHashanah @caffeinatedrav

Friends - you know what I’m doing today? Driving to each of our post offices to take photos of the boxes. Can you? Let’s collect the photos & send them to @RepJayapal #SaveThePostOffice #SaveTheUSPS #SaveUSPS We are getting ready to go. #Bo is all in.

Why there is no deal on unemployment, evictions & PPP? People are suffering. What is the holdup? #unconscionable 2/ I'd like to see any of these @GOP lawmakers live on $600/week. They would be unable. If they think that $600 is an incentive to stay home & not work, they are so out of touch. It's the height of disgustingness & I know that's not a word
