Please read this thread & share widely, especially with people you know who aren't paying attention to politics. This is the big picture. This is what we're up against. It's crucial that people understand what is happening.
The reactionary assault on multiracial, pluralistic democracy and the civil rights order is escalating. The long-standing anti-democratic tendencies among conservatives notwithstanding, the Right has been radicalizing significantly. And they wonโ€™t stop. A thread:

This story of three Korean women shot at a Dallas spa didnโ€™t get nearly enough news coverageโ€ฆ
A reminder that three Korean women were shot at a Dallas spa three days ago in what police believe was a hate crime. So many shootings in America that itโ€™s hard to keep track. washingtonpost.com/nation/20โ€ฆ

Hey everyone - Maggie is the Senate leader on: - special education - opioid addiction treatment funding - abusive health insurance practices We need her back. And if she wins, we can keep the Senate majority. If she loses, we are toast. Please make a small donation tonight.
Mitch McConnell knows that control of the Senate runs through New Hampshire. That's why he just bought $9 million of ads there. Please please click the link and make a small donation to keep New Hampshire blue. Consider it your good deed today. secure.actblue.com/donate/beโ€ฆ

This man is a hero. His name is Aaron Salter Jr. R.I.P.
The security guard who died trying to stop the white supremacist who murdered those people at TOPS is named Aaron Salter Jr. Because I know the media isn't going to memorialize this man as a hero, I'm asking all of you to remember who he is and remember his sacrifice.

@janegray We need to vote these republicans out. Not talk about it. Be about it! We need to take 3 people or more to the polls with us!
Replying to @Acosta
The vast majority of Americans want common-sense gun laws. Republicans refuse to allow us to pass common-sense gun laws. Republicans are why this keeps happening. Full stop. Vote. Every. Republican. Out.

Sen. Maggie Hassan (NH) won in 2016 by just 1,017 votes. It was the closest Senate race in the country. This year Maggie is under heavy attack and she needs our support. @brianschatz @ChrisMurphyCT Chip in to re-elect Maggie and spread the word! secure.actblue.com/donate/beโ€ฆ

As a Black woman these past few weeks have been so much. Knowing that my career, my finances, my reproductive rights, my saftey in public spaces etc are all scarily deeply affected by the whims of many white men who donโ€™t have to value any of those things is a terrifying reality

Itโ€™s not a spine thatโ€™s lacking, itโ€™s enough votes to override the filibuster. Manchin and Sinema are paid obstructionists. Two more Democratic senators makes them irrelevant.

If I get killed by gun please use my death to advocate for gun laws, this tweet is a blanket permission slip. You will dishonor my memory if you donโ€™t do this.

America is the only country in the world with more guns than people. This is going to keep happening until we do something about that.

Since I moved to the UK, watching mass shootings being accepted as a normal, even routine part of American life has seemed even more inexplicably grotesque. There was a mass shooting in Britain last year. 5 people died. When was the last UK mass shooting before that? 2010.
