if you want a laugh, you should absolutely read Fox News' "explainer" on Antifa.
Every single link this paragraph is to an Andy Ngo tweet.
can we all collectively agree to piss off the republicans and make “all countries matter” trend on july 4th
I worry that the controversy over the @firstname.lastname@example.org's handling of the Cotton op-ed is overshadowing the fact that a sitting US Senator (and rising start in the GOP) called for the American military to do war crimes against US citizens based on outright disinformation.
So much has changed so quickly. And if any of you are confused or scared or angry—or just plain overwhelmed—I just want you to know that you aren’t alone. I am feeling all that, too. And I have a few things I want to say about it. http://youtube.com/watch?v=VXDTmAYsFxQ
So candles are explosives now? This is an embarrassment. https://twitter.com/seattlepd/status/1269474731717087233
I love the visual symbolism of this. The White House has literally been obstructed from view by a memorial wall. https://twitter.com/hannah_natanson/status/1269678326538534914
@NYCMayor@twitter.com it’s pretty clear you don’t have control of the NYPD! would you agree that’s bad or is your head filled with clam chowder
hey @NYCMayor@twitter.com, listening to you lie on @BrianLehrer@twitter.com. My question is are you willfully endorsing police violence or do you struggle with object permanence?
"But you can't defund the police," say the people who have:
Defunded our schools
Defunded state and national parks.
Defunded environmental protections.
Defunded food safety.
Defunded the postal service.
Defunded the sciences.
Defunded the arts.
@email@example.com Yesterday on the BBC Professor Dame Donna Kinnair said “I encounter structural racism every day"
Her title is Professor, it was missed out on her screen name. Professor Hugh Pennington’s title was not.
The problem with racism, if it´s not happening to you, you don´t see it.
@firstname.lastname@example.org This screengrab from #Sydney keeps being relevant
Textbook police kettle. Block the exits, then order people to leave and brutalize them for not complying even though they literally can't comply. https://twitter.com/MikeApe7/status/1269533701194444800
When we say defund the police, we mean the national guard, ICE, the entire military complex & incarceration complex...all of it
Some of y’all are confused. It’s all connected.
While we’re talking about abolishing police....

lmao @ instagram, aka facebook, telling people to hold their employers accountable for racial justice when a call by the president to shoot “looters” and “thugs” is still live
It's amazing how all the people complaining about how the quarentine was taking away their rights are the ones saying you shouldn't go outside to protest the lack of human rights
Now that JK Rowling is trending, time to bring this up again.
If you’re European and think racism is primarily a US problem, that’s probably bc you don't personally experience it, but also because our education systematically ignores our own countries’ history of racialised violence. Pointing the finger is much easier than self-examination.
