"Don't want your kids taken, maybe forever? Don't (be brown and) commit a misdemeanor that's usually fined $10."
"Don't want to be killed by cops? Don't (be black and) have a broken taillight."
This (racist) cruelty IS America. But we CAN be better than this. Now. Let's.
A birthday can be a renewal, a new leaf. America has hardly ever needed one more. #IndependenceDay #FourthofJuly2018
My baby started smiling yesterday, on July 4. I don't believe in signs, but it's certainly not a bad one.

Happy #FourthofJuly2018:

When we created The Loyal Opposition, we began with a non-partisan #CallToAction operation.

Our mission has changed as our country's slide towards autocracy accelerates unchecked by the GOP.

The biggest platform changes we've made:

1) We are now explicitly partisan. Democrats MUST win the #DemocracyReferendum in November.

2) Our focus has shifted to the Russian information war, election education, & ad hoc CTAs that support our mission.

Please read our revised mission statement for full details on our updated mandate.

We remain a grassroots funded organization and are grateful to our followers for the trust placed in us.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

On this #IndependenceDay and #FourthofJuly2018 we must confront how America has a white democracy problem. Donald Trump is the result of a very old problem in American life. My new .@salon…
On every Fourth of July I read Frederick Douglass's "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?" While he was too hopeful about America's capacity to change and move forward after the end of slavery his devastating indictment of America's racism and hypocrisy still holds true.
Ultimately black Americans grabbed onto that great tocsin of American freedom and will not surrender it -- even if too many millions of white Americans have discarded it for cheaply made "MAGA" hats.

Its not “small government” when congressional male republicans who aren’t gynecologists, feel Big Brother State must intervene in women’s reproduction and family planning issues because women (unlike men) can’t be trusted to make decisions with their doctors.
Its not “small government”when presumably celibate-for-life congressional male republicans in defiance of the US Constitution, deputize their Christian Right donors to God-splain contraception and holy subjugation policies to the untrustworthy women.
Its not “small government” when congressional male republicans blend Big Brother State w/Christian Right God-splainers to hobble women, denying access to birth control, equal insurance pricing, equal access to healthcare, workplace protections and freedom. 🇺🇸

It’s time for a #WednesdayWisdom quiz, #FourthofJuly2018 edition!

How much do you know about the Declaration of Independence?

Test your knowledge on #IndependenceDay with these 7 questions. You ready?
1. George Washington was one of two future presidents to sign the Declaration.
2. How many grievances against King George III were listed in the Declaration?

Tweeted this last year. Now the task force for denaturalization (what an appropriate topic for #FourthofJuly2018) is in place. A few takeaways:

1. Thus far, only applies to immigrants who applied for citizenship under a fake name.
2. The concern is whether it will be expanded for other misrepresentations, intentional or not. Also, given this admin's track record: targeting certain communities.

All valid concerns. There are legal defenses available in some cases. Of course, this assumes access to counsel.
3. The legalities will be unfortunately lost on most people, and like so many other initiatives in this admin, there's a "psyop" angle: spread fear, create panic, make every nonwhite person feel insecure. Because the govt can still come after people even with weak cases.
