Blinks in @CityofAtlanta .
It’s wild how many people in the US, specifically places like Seattle, think a major problem we have in this country is that we don’t put enough people in prison. No knowledge or data just vibes (vibes meaning bigotry and addiction to punishment).

.@CDCgov has published new #covid19 recommendations – they are a betrayal of chronically ill, disabled, and immunocompromised Americans. We are being forcibly removed from American public. cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/71/wr/m…

Michelle is the bomb dot com. Not everyone can tolerate an IUD. And it’s not the automatic answer. Say that!
A push to “just get an IUD” ignores real and valid concerns from communities that have historically experienced medical trauma. Michelle Colón, of @SHEROMS4: “Don’t let anybody talk you into something if it’s not what you want.” reckon.news/news/2022/08/eve…

And moving to unseal the warrant… which will lay out all the probable cause to search him, is a fantastic move. 10/10 no notes.

Also in this story: the main DHS IG point of contact for Congress has been Kristen Fredericks, despite serious accusations about her past in a prior job at the Social Security Admin, including an active investigation into whistleblower retaliation.

An end to a great class with @baruchseek & @BaruchBls! We did a lot in 5 weeks but I wished we were able to do even more! We even had guests like Ojore Lutalo swing through & chat with them! This is the boost that we need to transition into Fall 2022! #Education4LiberationALWAYS

Folks should not pretend that conservatives are arguing in good faith about the FBI. They don’t care about the use of federal or local police powers to oppress people. They just don’t want it happening to them.

I might need me a shirt that says "I'm Your Huckleberry." Yes watching Tombstone again. Rewatching stuff is comforting in moments of disarray. What is on your rewatch never get tired of it list?

And that's a wrap, folks. We're done here.
Replying to @queersocialism
The whole point is to be vague and simultaneously prop herself up as a spokesperson of the rational ‘we down to work with the right’ hyper online “left”/political commentator elite

Similarly.
Replying to @OLAASM
What the fuck does "ride that energy" even mean? Ok, sure, fascists are upset that their loyal, racist political goon squad hurt their feelings this one time in a very small way for a brief moment - but that "why" actually does matter. The "why" is the whole thing.

yes.
the thing that keeps getting missed w/this idea is that there is no coherent “left” in the US. there is not an organized & advanced faction of the “left” capable of—w/o being captured, or co-opted—“taking advantage,” or “riding the wave” of the disgruntled fascist wing of empire.

One might say it's "incredibly telling" that you quickly respond to scattershot trolling and not actual leftists taking you to task for spouting total (and dangerous) nonsense about completely-imagined opportunities for fascist collaboration.

It is a shame that they cropped out "the left should take advantage of the right’s new acknowledgment of systemic bias." What "systemic bias" is the right acknowledging in their rage against the Feds for raiding a billionaire's palatial estate?
It's incredibly telling that he needed to crop my tweet to get the "own." Maybe Guy and the communities he's a part of have a cozier relationship with the FBI than I do, but as a leftist and Black American, I think it's imperative to capitalize on anti FBI sentiments.
