@StoicGiraffee @JENFL23 Great idea! That’s what we all agree on!! How do we do this? Strategies the @RedBeretsM4A have worked towards this goal:

1. Volunteering thousands of hours to try to elect Bernie.
2. Volunteering for & donating to elect progressives.
3. Co-organized national marches.

(Cont), @StoicGiraffee @JENFL23 @RedBeretsM4A 4. Worked through creative means to build coalitions and build solidarity in this movement, which is why we were reached out to by Shareef Snuggs @iam4M4A to partner with M4M4ALL.
5. Boosted the hell out of progressive independent media who are platforming M4A organizers,

We just received another donation! You know, Shareef Snuggs @iam4M4A and I were just talking about the need to build our communities through #MutualAid, (and while a travel fund is not the same as medical emergency or desperation), we ARE,(1/2) We are working together w/ @KennyBallentine, to create a truly grassroots, transformative, movement building documentary!

Deep thanks to @WholeWashington, @M4M4ALL @50linesonly @DesnoyersScott @DrJoeQJarvis @DrDooleyMD @ProudSocialist @J_ManPrime21 @wendellpotter and many more!

Remember when @AOC ignored marches in 56 cities? That was super fun, trying to raise tiny dollar donations from dirt poor/already financially spread thin organizers, wasn’t it, Shareef?

.@ninaturner I need you to see this, too! We, the 99% are out so much money when it comes to donating. We’re funding the revolution. (1/2)

@joefirestonephd @M4M4ALL @briebriejoy Ahh yes, the thread that started it all!! The one where @GeoDavenport and I ushered (in good faith), some people who despite getting all of their questions answered, we’re still trolling us relentlessly! So we said, hey, it’s okay! We ALL agree we need to pass NIMA, SO, (1/2), @joefirestonephd @M4M4ALL @briebriejoy @GeoDavenport Why don’t you all tell us YOUR timeline & strategy for passing NIMA?! (Crickets) …Trolling comments resume, so we say, ‘hey have you all heard about the @M4M4ALL?? Maybe we could all work together on that!’

We say that many times over on “the thread.”

Turns out, they (cont)

Hi there @jimmy_dore! It’s me again—“relentless Laura!!”~@J_ManPrime21♥️

I have a quick request! First of all, thanks for endorsing @WholeWashington!!

We would love to create a special endorsement graphic, but we need you to please fill out the form I’ll link below!

#RedBerets If you don’t want to fill out this form, please write as a response, ‘I don’t want to fill out the fucking form, but YES, I endorse @WholeWashington!’

You may please feel free to ask @RepJayapal why she hasn’t endorsed yet! But that part is optional:-)…

@keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson It’s fine! I ended up gathering that. I blocked them. I’m already having a horrendous 24 hours within the M4A organizing movement, so I don’t have the energy for this debate.

Allow me to explain. @keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson Essentially, I feel used up by the Medicare for All movement. I have personally knit over 350 #RedBerets to help unify the M4A community.

I strongly supported the electoral strategy. I have donated a HUGE sum of money for yarn, & to M4A candidate campaign. (1/?)

I’m so excited to begin gathering signatures for @WholeWashington #I1362!! Solidarity organizing is how we will achieve national improved Medicare for ALL!

We won’t get there by leaving strong efforts on all fronts out.

.@KennyBallentine understands this!
@ReddIsAri thank you! When I say begin, I mean pick up the pace!We need 400K and though I have collected quite a few sheets of 20 signatures each, and also gotten them to small businesses to host (and hosted a petition bin, so I’m a pick up & drop off point), I still haven’t done enough!

Knitting as a metaphor for healthcare justice organizing: hear me me out:-)

I’m reflecting on this misguided notion that local organizing can be separated from national M4A

I want to create a beret or hat, yes? Yes. That’s the objective.

I don’t just get to snap my fingers 1/2 I need to procure yarn, & needles. I have to choose the shade, yarn weight & pattern. Next I need to cast on the correct number of stitches. I don’t love to knit, purl, knit purl ribbing—it’s a pain in the ass. I’d rather be onto the body, but I don’t get to skip that part. Cont,

Sending out a couple points of clarification regarding endorsements!

1. @WholeWashington is non-partisan, they cannot endorse candidates.
2. Candidates can endorse Whole Wa & when they do, WW publicly thanks them!
3. Red Berets now have an official twitter @RedBeretsM4A

(1/2) 4. This account, @RedBeretsM4All, is the account of founder & executive director of Red Berets Medicare for All, Laura Fielding, who is also also a board member of @WholeWashington.

5. When I tweet from this account, it is with my own opinions.

“Cenk has to sit on top of his shit mountain”~Zac


Thx @vanguard_pod for the excellent points that the online left have ZERO actual power, & the Lol🤣

Cenk Uygur BLAMES Jimmy Dore, Briahna Joy Gray CALLS OUT Emma Vigeland F... via @YouTube Both of you cracking me the f up, @GavinCMB, as I’m catching up on work notes.

To say that the online left are fucking ridiculous, & petty is a huge understatement.

People punching at organizers last night was fun too:-)😒

.@AOC @ninaturner I want to ask this question:

If you do decide to not mention, support or drop by the @M4M4ALL, will you put in a word to @PramilaJayapal, who has ignored @WholeWashington for years?

I don’t want to give up hope but this isn’t even like @ForceTheVoteM4A (1/2) What @M4M4ALL & @ForceTheVoteM4A have in common is, they were/are organized by the grassroots! They both are made to push M4A onto the national public awareness platform. They both build movement energy and moral (something that the progressive caucus doesn’t seem to care about).
