Under scrutiny from journalists like @KimZetter, ES&S will stop selling paperless voting machines. But we must maintain the scrutiny because its barcoded machine-marked “paper ballot” systems use summary text that, per NASEM, is “virtually unusable for verifying voter intent”! 1/

There are many dubious arguments in regards to gun control and blatant red herrings. I thought I would capture the most common and write appropriate responses (read through)…. #guncontrolnow #neveragain #nra #gunsense #Guncontrol #2A
“The government wants to take my guns.”

No.. no.. no they don’t. Besides, have you even thought about the logistics of such an operation? Who’s coming? Police? Military? No, they wouldn’t give up their guns. Maybe Obama will come knock on your door and ask nicely.
“I don’t want to register my guns because the government will know what I have.”

You are paranoid. Switzerland has one of the highest gun ownership rates in Europe and they register. Registering will create greater accountability and provide better tracking to solve crimes.

On a midnight like this,38 years ago,the #Jaffna Public Library,onetime Asia's finest library with thousands of books and rare documents on #Tamil culture made of ola leaves were burned to ashes by Govt forces. #cultural #genocide #NoJustice
The women who is seated here on a partly burned wooden chair with empty looks in her face is Mrs Nadaraja who was then Chief Librarian of #Jaffna Public library when it was burned down. No one brought before justice for this act of cultural genocide against #Tamil community.
Following the burning of #Jaffna Public library,Mrs Nadarajah left the country. Her new book titled “#Jaffna Public Library-Then & Now” on witnessing this worst cultural genocidal act committed against #Tamil community by Govt sponsored forces to be released in UK tomorrow.

Here we go. I'm starting a thread of antisemitic incidents in NYC that specifically target Orthodox/visible Jews. This happens CONSTANTLY and rarely gets any attention. I'm not saying that no other group had it worse. I am saying that no one seems to care is heartbreaking,
Here is another article about the same incident:

I’m a 43 year old Jewish female. Born in Israel to parents who fled Riga almost 50 years ago. I come from a fairly small family. My dad died when I was a teenager & my grandparents died when I was young as well. When I was growing up my family never spoke about the Holocaust.
Since my dad, my grandparents & my aunt died when I was young, we never had a real discussion about the Holocaust, so I assumed they were left fairly unharmed during WWII. I was wrong. This morning my sister told me she’s been researching our family through Yad Vashem.
Turns out my father, grandparents, aunt and other relatives are listed as Holocaust survivors. We also learned we weren’t from a small family. It was small after the Holocaust. I learned this morning that my great grandfather was murdered in the Holocaust.

Today is Holocaust Rememberance Day in Israel.
While living in Berlin, I’ve experienced the somber emotions that come with visiting a concentration camp. It takes about 30 mins to get to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp located in the quiet neighborhood of Oranienburg. THREAD
At Sachsenhausen, the Nazis would establish the administrative headquarters for all concentration camps in the regime, called the Concentration Camps Inspectorate.
Sachsenhausen was built in 1936; the first concentration camp built under the direction of Heinrich Himmler (pictured below). The atrocities committed here are almost too many to count, and Sachsenhausen was not even among the largest and most deadly of the concentration camps.

It’s #HolocaustRemembranceDay today. I’ve met a number of Holocaust survivors over the years & there are not many left.

I was recently gifted the opportunity to meet/listen to David Wiener, originally from Łódź Poland survivor of both the Warsaw Ghetto and Auschwitz, speak.

1/
I didn’t record him as few would understand his accent, but I took notes and received his permission to publish.

These are his thoughts as he spoke, some of which I’d never heard before and were shocking.

This matters as much now as it did in 1944.

Please share this thread so his memory will not be lost.

“No one believed they would kill us.”

At sundown, Yom HaShoah, the Holocaust Day of Remembrance, begins. My father survived the Holocaust. Many members of my family - along with millions of others - were murdered, simply because they were Jewish.
Survivors and so many others pledged to never let future generations forget what happened so that a horror like the Holocaust never again occurs. #neverforget #neveragain
Anti-semitism is surging today. Honor the memories of those who died by educating yourself and those around you about what happened — and what is happening. @HolocaustMuseum @AuschwitzMuseum #yomhashoah

We have a @StateDept office to promote religious freedom globally, but we can’t guarantee it here at home. state.gov/j/drl/irf/
If this was any other threat at this level - we’d be reviewing intel, monitoring threat streams, holding emergency sitroom meetings and re-allocating resources.
Why are hate crimes being treated so differently? Preventing more of them is literally a matter of life and death.

“We’re here to ensure accountability.”

A public accounting in the real OC for the OC Sheriff and Supervisors’ use of county resources for immigration enforcement, a thread!

#UncoverTheTruth #ICEoutofCA #ICEoutofOC #BastaHate #TruthForum #DefendSanctuary #SanctuaryCities
California law requires a public accounting for counties engaged in immigration enforcement, for ex. transferring people to ICE custody. One of many state policies enacted in response to a decade of expansion of jail deportation operations. #truthforum #truthact #transparency
The hundreds of #sanctuarycities across the country are also part of this reaction to unprecedented expansion of federal deportations programs trying to utilize local and state resources. #TheySaidNope #EndSCOMM #Basta287g #SafeCommunitiesAct #TrustAct #NoICEAccess

I told y’all: Trump & his fellow Republican white supremacists are carrying out mass ethnic cleansing on American soil.

This is what Trump, Stephen Miller, and Kris Kobach plan for all brown & black folks. They won’t stop at refugees & immigrants.

Any one of us could be next.
PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE.

Lives are in danger. Our humanity is at risk. The future of our country is in jeopardy.

WE CANNOT LET NAZIS TAKE OVER AMERICA.

There’s no coming back from this if We the People don’t stop it.

If she wants to condemn the constitution, wouldn't you think she would at least read it first? So she doesn't embarrass herself? And isn't it odd that never occurred to her?.. This is what happens when young students spend too much time protesting and not enough time in class

This article ... works both as a look at America's gun pathology & a metaphor for most Americans' regard for the teaching profession.

Is there any other country on earth treating teachers like this?

2/ These drills are expensive, traumatizing, not researched backed, and go against everything educators know about building safe spaces for children.

They are also increasing mandated by states.

1/ Thread

Only 3% of Americans have Jewish, Sikh or Muslimic faith.

There is a lot of hate and fearmongering against these religious minorities.

Trump administration increased the existent threat severely.

😘 Greetings from Germany
2/ Political rhetoric matters.

Terror attacks affects the minority.
It does not matter in what country the crime happened.

The article below illustrates this very well.

@voxdotcom 3/ Trump never called white supremacist terrorism as such - but even relativated it.

Again Trump punts on white supremacy after New Zealand attacks

The most expeditious way to defend what some refer to as "#WesternCivilization" and lose is to make it for whites only.

It’s not for white people only.

That’s a demonic lie.

#NewZealandMosqueShooting
White Nationalist like to employ “Western civilization” as a kind of dog-whistle code for white nationalist and their allies. When regular folk hear it, it means one thing. But, when they use it, it conveys a racial thing.

It's how they recruit young, white, naive conservatives.
But, here’s what they won’t tell you: Few know that the term they use "Western civilization,” is an [American] invention - not European!
