A list of #GunControl bills Democrats introduced after shootings, which Republicans blocked:

#SandyHook, 2012. 21 killed.

Congress proposed bipartisan bill expanding background checks, a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity gun magazines.

Blocked by Republicans.
Charleston, South Carolina, Dylan Roof kills 9 people in a Black church.

Democrats tried to eliminate what became known as the "Charleston loophole," which allows people with incomplete background checks to purchase guns after three days.

Blocked by Republicans.

The CPAC 2021 stage is in the shape of an Odal rune, used by Nazi Germany.

These #WhiteSupremacist extremists are anti-democracy and anti anyone who doesn't agree with them.

It's a mistake to dismiss them as "crazy". This is CPAC. Not a small fringe group.

(short thread) In Nazi Germany, this rune symbolized "blood and soil".

There is nothing @RepCawthorn won't lie about. “The International Paralympic Committee, the IPC, they have a registry of athletes. You have to be on it to even compete internationally,”

The list is publicly available, and contains over 4,000 athletes from around the world. Cawthorn isn’t on it.

Want to revisit this Shallow Hal tweet, Dave?

Biden has always stayed fit. He's listened to medical experts and he takes all recommended precautions, not only for his health, but to avoid exposing others and risking their health.

THAT'S the president I want.

Trump has already spent several minutes interrupting and arguing with the moderator, and he's thrown out a racial slur.

Wallace: "Mr. President, can you please let him finish?"

Joe "He doesn't know how to do that." 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
#Debates2020 #PresidentialDebate #BidenCoalition Joe: "Will you shut up? Keep yapping, man."

YES 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

He wants to make Dems think there's no point in voting.

We fight like she did, until the end.

No giving up.
#RIPRuthBaderGinsburg Give yourself time to mourn and process this loss.

Everyone grieves differently. There is no one "right" way to grieve.

There's another #dogwhistle to white supremacists in the Trump Organization store: an $88 baseball.

88 stands for "heil Hitler", because H is the 8th letter of the alphabet.

This is a pattern - keep reading. THREAD. #WhiteSupremacists #racism
bit.ly/31xNsY9 July 1st it was pointed out that a t shirt sold in the campaign store has a design modeled on the Iron Eagle.

The official symbol of the Nazi party.

This was intentionally designed to appeal to white supremacists.

Today, @SenDougJones gave the civil rights speech our country needed.

Inspired by Dr. King's Letter from Birmingham Jail, it spoke to why we MUST keep this momentum going.

Please - watch & share. THREAD: 1/8
#JonesMLKspeech #BlackLivesMatter "...my greatest
concern is that these good people will get distracted.

It’s easy to be
overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem.

It is easy to not know
where to begin but it is not enough to simply agree any longer, to have a conversation."

Summary of #coronavirus #COVID19 webinar by @JohnsHopkinsIH yesterday:
🔹 No country is fully prepared for an epidemic
🔹 during Ebola outbreak, 10% of tweets had bad info
🔹 Others were rumors about govt conspiracies
🔹 Others were chaos inducing tweets
1/8 🔹Propaganda blames various different populations, give rise to discrimination
🔹 There is NO CURE for #COVIDー19
🔹 There is no foolproof preventative
🔹 Surgical masks are NOT EFFECTIVE

Yesterday @POTUS said that #Immigrants trying to enter the US are #animals, not people.

Let's look at who he's talking about.

#Trump will separate children from parents to discourage #Immigrants, even those legally requesting amnesty. goo.gl/1qLtoL 1/6 #sanctuary Not people? So it's okay to separate children from their parents indefinitely?

Does that @CBP officer look proud of his job? 2/6 #dehumanization #RacismInAmerica #SanctuaryCities #sanctuary

I'm seeing accounts call themselves "bot hunters" & run prominent resistance accounts thru sites like botcheck.me. If the site says the account is a #Bot, they tweet that info.

It's a tactic to discredit #Resistance accounts & sow #chaos & #Division. THREAD 1/5 These fake "bot hunters" count on people believing them & blocking the accounts they call bots. This reduces the resistance account's reach & effectiveness.

Educate yourself on identifying bots so you don't fall for it. 2/5 #panic #disinformation #chaos

I've talked before about Russian #disinformation, and how the goal is to exploit existing divisive issues to weaken the enemy. 1 #InformationWarfare #WednesdayWisdom #CambridgeAnalytica #Russie #Putin #deza Bernie v. Hillary, Benghazi & the "email scandal" were perfect targets. There was already tension & division on those topics, so they were easy to exploit. 2

Everyone's heard of #FakeNews. Before it was called fake news, it was called #disinformation. The goal is to cause confusion and chaos, so people don't know who to trust or what to believe. THREAD 1 #RussianCollaborators #Propaganda #FridayFeeling #FridayMotivation Disinformation promotes so much misleading & false info that people lose faith, give up. Disinformation is designed to weaken the enemy by discrediting it with lies and "leaks" of damaging "info". Hint: the enemy is us, the resistance. 2 washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…

Over the past few months, several scam accounts have popped up that call themselves #resistance. Some ask for #donations to help impeach Trump. Some sell shirts, phone cases, etc. And there are others that ask for money for various causes. THREAD 1 #scam #donate #con #PSA I’ve written about some before, I have a collection of threads about them here. 2
