Fun Fact

The USA's 141.8 million accounts represent 27.4% of all Twitter users.

Probably the biggest mindfuck of capitalism is the idea that property is equal to or worth more than human life

Police are shooting teargas at people protesting a murder committed by their officers in broad daylight. There’s no gray area here and I wouldn’t trust anyone who claims there is.

If a man casually snuffs out another man’s life on film he should be tried for murder.

I’m on the ground in Minneapolis, MN. I want to be clear— 

@MinneapolisPD is antagonizing protestors. 

They’re spraying irritants at people walking down the street, waiting on the bus— not even involved in protest. I was sprayed 2X w/ pepper spray walking to my hotel. https://t.co/i4TBIzc1Eq

All of this could be stopped if they charged the four cops seriously and the fact that this is not being done means protecting the cops is judged to be more important than stopping the chaos. Let that sink in.

Burning a police precinct is not nearly as violent an act as holding your knee on a person’s neck for several minutes and choking the life out of them. This is another moment where the elite call upon us to feel more empathy for white property than for our own lives. I don’t 🤷🏾‍♀️

Just because you hire lobbyists to slip it into a law doesn’t mean it’s not looting.

"I'm so tired of anger being portrayed as a negative emotion. Often anger is an act of compassion, especially if it's anger on behalf of others whose rights are being taken away."—@sarahkendzior

"A lot of the work people do in totalitarian regimes is planting seeds for the next generation. People mistakenly believe that the Civil Rights movement in America was a quick process. It rested on decades, and even centuries, of work."—@sarahkendzior

2. Our large urban spaces — that rhetorically celebrate diversity — are ruled by a carceral liberalism that keeps funding for social services low but sees policing as the solution to every problem — mask wearing, people not having money for the subway, marijuana, violence.

After George Floyd's murder, Mayor @Jacob_Frey is getting praise for his words. White liberals often do. But on *actions*, in the greatest era of mass, racialized criminalization in modern history, Frey ruthlessly sought MORE money for MORE police. https://t.co/Rv8ZJIhf97.

If you have 10 bad cops and 1,000 good cops, but those 1,000 good cops don’t turn in the 10 bad cops, you have 1,010 bad cops.

Anyone complaining about looting after US corporations just walked off with trillions unaccountably and called it a “bailout” doesn’t need to be taken seriously.

BREAKING: Protestors are gathering outside of Minnesota prosecutor Mike Freeman’s home after his bullshit press conference where he said the video is "terrible" but there is “other evidence that does not support a criminal charge.”
