57yrs since โ€œI Have a Dreamโ€ speech.

6 months since #BLM murals painted on streets across America.

1 wk since white supremacists stormed the Capitol, in attempt to overthrow our democracy.

WE are beyond the point of words and performative statements.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on Congress members who may be sympathetic towards the rioter carrying Confederate flag: "The Confederacy were a band of enemies and traitors to the U.S. ... if they find more sympathy with them, then perhaps they shouldn't be serving in the U.S. Congress."

Quoted @SenHawleyPress

Sadly, much of the media and many members of the Washington establishment want to deceive Americans into thinking those who raised concerns incited violence, simply by voicing the concern. Thatโ€™s false. And the allegation itself is corrosive and dangerous.

Resign!

Dear politicians/political influencers:

When you tweet about my fatherโ€™s birthday, remember that he was resolute about eradicating racism, poverty & militarism.

Encourage & enact policies that reflect your birthday sentiments.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says Dems should pass $2K on top of the $600 from December, rather than add $1,400 to get $600 to $2K.

"$2,000 means $2,000. $2,000 does not mean $1,400,โ€ณ @AOC tells us

Hello Uganda! Despite the wide spread fraud and violence experienced across the country earlier today, the picture still looks good. Thank you Uganda for turning up and voting in record numbers. The challenge now is for Mr. Byabakama and the EC to declare the will of the Pple.

Like my wife's, my phone has been blocked and I am unable to recieve or make regular calls. I know this is to stop me from communicating to our agents and coordinators. I encourage you comrades to be vigilant as I try to devise ways of reaching out to you.

This has moved past the insurrection attempt. Weโ€™ve learned that GOP members gave tours to insurrectionists, coordinated with their leaders, and are trying to carry guns on the House floor.

They're putting barriers around the Capitol, but the threat is on the inside right now.
