There is no “pro life movement.” Pro-life would be pro-healthcare, school lunches for hungry kids and mercy for migrants fleeing literal death. Pro-life would fight poverty and fund kids education and kids and maternal healthcare. Call them what they are: a forced birth movement.

I had to cry w/ @JoyAnnReid on TV last night. And I had to remember all those who let their tears flow until justice rolled down like a mighty stream. It’s time to come together & build a movement. Join us in DC on June 18. #PoorPeoplesCampaign ytb.trom.tf/yF-2ReahMIg

“Black people posed a danger to the country’s idea of itself; they held up a mirror into which the nation preferred not to peer. So the inhumanity visited on Black people by every generation of white America justified the inhumanity of the past and the inequality of the present.”

“…it is clear that this is never only about immigration; when gunmen write about “replacers,” they might just as easily mean any person of color, whether they have American roots or not. Replacement theory is about the violent defense of whiteness.” portside.org/2022-05-19/long…

They're not going to be satisfied with forced birth state by state. They're going to go for a national forced birth law. And then they're coming for everything else. The SCOTUS ending "right to privacy" puts it ALL ON THE TABLE: gay marriage, LGBTQ rights, anti-discrimination...
This is a brutal article. This is the reality in Florida and who knows where else soon. washingtonpost.com/education…

Y'all keep comforting yourselves, believing Alito and the other Christian nationalists on the SCOTUS won't come for your communities. Making abortion illegal will satisfy them, right? ...Christian nationalists believe they are fighting a war for God. People in a jihad don't stop.

NEW: Trump-endorsed candidate Jacky Eubanks (R-MI) just called to ban birth control & gay marriage: “Sex ought to be between 1 man and 1 woman in the confines of marriage... Things like abortion and gay marriage are outside of the Christian moral order... It should not be legal.”

This governor pushed to gerrymander away Black Floridians’ representation. He outlawed teaching anything but platitudes glorifying European enslavers and their heirs. His election police will target Black voters and he’d let cars hit Black protesters. Also it’s “led” not “lead.”
On May 20, 1865 – the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect in Florida.   Today, 157 years later, we celebrate Emancipation Day and honor this great expansion of freedom in our state.

It’s not about “saving babies.” Their policies show they don’t care about children. Or about “life.” They worship guns & eagerly support the death penalty. It’s about controlling women & forcing them to be state-mandated incubators “to increase the available supply of infants.”
From the moment of fertilization. No exceptions for rape and incest. May not travel to another state. Jailing doctors and mothers. Punishing moms for a miscarriage. This is medieval policy. Anyone telling you to chill is not paying attention, doesn’t care, or likes this stuff.

There's very few Republican governors that will aggressively assert that Trump lost a fair and free election. There's no changing their minds, we just have to beat them at the ballot box. @StuartPStevens discusses election deniers running for key offices with @JoyAnnReid.

There is no more blaring, red siren alarm indicator of the @GOP’s self-declaration of being an authoritarian, fascist group than having their @CPAC conference in Hungary where authoritarian leader, Viktor Orban is their archetype for @GovRonDeSantis 2024.👇🏼huffpost.com/entry/us-journa…

Covid has crushed our restaurants. @HouseDemocrats and @SenateDems have proposed reloading the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. Nearly EVERY Republican voted against it and killed the bill. Here’s what a Bay Area restaurant owner shared with me when he learned the bad news.

The alleged Buffalo shooter said he carried out the attack bc “all black people are replacers just by existing in White countries.” I would offer to explain how Black people got to the United States, but who knows if “critical race theory” remains legal where you’re reading this.

There is no “quiet part.” It’s just all out loud.
NEW: The GOP nominee for Pennsylvania Governor, Doug Mastriano, just indicated he’ll steal the election in 2024 if he wins: “I get to appoint the Secretary of State, who [controls] the voting logs & everything. I could decertify every machine in the state with a stroke of a pen.”
