What keeps me up? Babies and toddlers and children being given heavy duty antipsychotic drugs without monitoring by licensed personnel. We all know they don’t have nurses caring for caged migrant babies.
Deaths are inevitable.
This is genocide by the US government.
When kids are drugged they don’t eat. When babies are drugged they don’t drink. When drugs are given by unlicensed personnel kids die. Our government is committing genocide. And they are planning to continue genocide on a massive scale. #babyjails
When kids are drugged they aren’t learning. When babies are drugged they aren’t developing. When antipsychotics are given en masse to a pediatric population some percentage of that population will react very badly and may even die. Our country is committing genocide.
How is life going on like nothing is happening while we know babies are being drugged. Toddlers are being drugged. Children are being drugged in order to be held quietly in captivity. We don’t treat animals this way in the United States of America. Why are we allowing genocide?
Most people have never seen a drugged baby. In the Pediatric ICU it was necessary to save lives. We fed the kids with IV nutrition, we calculated every dose by the specific weight of the child, double checked the calc with a second RN. No way that’s being done in #babyjails
It’s not alarmist to say kids will die. It’s blind in these circumstances to assume every kid will tolerate what these monsters are doing to them. Kids will die. Babies will die. Our government is actively engaged in genocide. Now.
Most people have had the experience of caring for a toddler just as Mom had to leave for work. Fun right? They scream, cry, for hours and hours and hours inconsolable. This is why they drug them. We aren’t talking about a pinch of Zoloft here. They are drugging them out cold.
Babies, toddlers need to eat and drink every three to four hours. Who is waking up drugged babies to force feed them? How is that working in real life in the cages?
Our country is committing genocide in real time. Now.
Two weeks ago when I read they were drugging the kids I became paralyzed. I saw every kid from the peds ICU flash before me. Then I realized these kids don’t have RNs and MDs overseeing their care. They are at the mercy of “guards” who have never dealt with a drug reaction.
Unlicensed, untrained, inexperienced, overworked, stressed guards on duty over drugged caged babies and toddlers. I can’t even comprehend how this is happening in our nation.
The intent of this fascist government is to terrorize all of us. They are showing us their complete disregard for humanity. They are saying this is how we treat babies, you could be next. You the disabled. You the #lgbt. You the POC. You the elderly. You’re next. #babyjails
We must fight back. We can’t revert to her emails and the primary and the garbage. We can’t let #babyjails normalize. Please commit with me to tweet on this topic every day at least once.
In my time as an RN I had the duty to hand over a dead baby to the mother on too many occasions. This scarred me the most over my time as a nurse, the coldness, the lifelessness, the deadness of a baby I had failed to save. The horror of the mothers face.
I’m asking my followers to commit to keeping this topic alive, on your tongues, speaking out here and in real life. If you can, protest in your town. Make a sign. #StandOnEveryCorner This is not a drill, we must act. Stand with me. ❤️🏳️‍🌈
Article II Convention on the Punishment and prevention of the crime of Genocide lists “forcibly transferring the children of one group to another group” and “causing serious mental harm to the group” as genocide.
No one has to die for it to be genocide.
It is already genocide.
Caged and alone, nauseous, dizzy, in pain, rashes developing, organ failure, experiencing any manner of adverse drug reactions, what recourse does a baby have? Is the baby crying because the she misses Mom? Is the baby crying because she needs breast milk? The“guards” can’t know
It must be a horrifying situation for the “guards” to watch this unfolding. Not allowed to comfort the babies. Not allowed to touch the babies. They must know this practice is a mortal sin. How do we reach these folks? How do we get more video from inside?
Babies can’t report their abuse and suffering. Babies just suffer. Toddlers just refuse to eat the food that is already foreign to them. Caged migrant children have NO recourse to being forcibly drugged by our government #babyjails
We must stand, bear witness and fight.
Here is a list of trusted orgs fighting for the rights of migrant children. Please give if you can.
.@SecNielsen How do you sleep knowing you are perpetrating genocide? Where is your faith in action? Where is your humanity?
“Forcibly transferring the children of one group to another group is genocide”
“Causing serious mental physical harm to members of the group is genocide “
.@secAzar Why is HHS budgeting to cage 9,100 MORE migrant children in the next four weeks? Why are you stealing Ryan White AIDS funds to kidnap, drug and cage MORE migrant children? Where is your humanity? Why are you perpetrating genocide?
.@Vp You claim this is a “pro life administration” Where is your faith in action? Where is your humanity? Your soul?
“Forcibly transferring the children of one group to another group is genocide”
“Causing serious mental and physical harm to members of the group is genocide “
.@nytimes Why are you publishing article after article soft pedaling this genocide? Reporting how “brightly lit”the facility is and the “wholesome chicken and vegetables served” Why are you covering for fascist genocide?…
.@SenJeffMerkley in NH today speaking out on migrant child detention. Time to rise up and resist child separation and detention. #KeepFamilesTogether #StandOnEveryCorner
.@SenJeffMerkley speaking about his trip to investigate migrant child detention.…
.@SenJeffMerkley describes migrant child detention facilities as akin to “dog kennels” today in NH meeting.

Merkley states this “practice is Evil” and “originates with President Trump, AG Jeff Sessions and Steven Miller.”

Merkley calls for an immediate end to child separation
Drugged children have reactions. Rashes. Drowsiness. Nausea. Confusion. Headaches. Tics. Inability to focus. Seizures. Lifelong ptsd.
We are committing genocide against vulnerable migrant children.
.@SenJeffMerkley reporting on the detention facility he investigated “that staffing was down 90% for mental health counselors.”
So Migrant kids are held in dog kennels separated from Mom and Dad, some drugged with antipsychotics with no mental health support at all. #babyjails
Trump admin FAILS to meet court order for migrant child reunification.…
We must support the efforts of @SenJeffMerkley to pass the #ReuniteAct and end the genocidal policy of family separation. Contact your senatorscyo sign on now.
Ask your Senator to sign on to S. 3084 to give access to child detention facilities to Congress now. Put the pressure on.
Press your Senator to sign on to S.3112 the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act. We must have congressional oversight at these for profit #babyjails

I’m on the 🚂 to philly heading to the sentencing of the most infamous rapist of all time Bill #Cosby.

We are hoping to see this criminal walk out in shackles for his 45year+ depraved crime spree of drugging and raping over 60 women.

Watch this space for pics and updates!

Graphics by @FrancescaRizzo Part of a 4 year digital campaign to raise awareness of the names of the human victims of #Cosby’s 45 year drug and rape crime spree.
No one knows all of these survivors’ names.

They aren’t famous, they didn’t “cash in”
By being raped.

Differences between #AnitaHill and #CavanaghHearings.

‘91 Almost ALL white dude staffers behind a ALL STRAIGHT WHITE MALE SENATORS on judiciary committee.

‘18 Half/same old gang of straight white male rape enabler @GOPs vs @Dem’s diversity , and a stfu old @Vp.

‘99 Thurmond, 1948 “States rights” party white supremacist nominee for president, 51 years later he’s grabbing my breast.

‘18 Orrin Hatch, Still So 😡 Mormon chicks don’t blow and black Women don’t sit still for berating on CSPAN.

#AnitaHill #Kavanaugh

Dear not alive during #AnitaHill:

Those hearings terrorized us as we sat transfixed, knowing for a fact we would not be believed

or given a fair chance to tell our stories of rape and harassment

In America or in front of the United States Senate.

#KavanaughConfirmation and his fascist Theocrat cronies Grassley and Orrin Hatch simply following the crucifixion of Anita Hill model of Trotting out dude after dude who told us that Clarence Thomas “wasn’t” a porn addicted rapist. #longDongSilver
During the Anita Hill hearings a sharp line emerged between women who had been raped and harassed

and those who hadn’t yet reconciled and named their experiences.

Women in denial called Anita a bitch.

The rest of us wore buttons

because her story was our story.

Door knocking matters.

I lived in Florida when walkin’ Lawton Chiles was a representative and then governor of our state.

Chiles was famous for walking first his entire district when he ran for his house seat and then won.

Chile’s Met voters door-to-door, town to town/1
Walkin’ Lawton m@et the people where they were.

Walkin’ Lawton was sneered at for his “no chance” Democrat pro civil rights campaign and for being a “redneck”

Walkin’ Lawton just kept walking and converting red voters blue with each step.
Walkin’ Lawton got it that connecting with voters in person is the way to build a coalition.

🛑 👂 to voter concerns, hear problems repeated then seize on solutions based messages.

Often voters are experts on their one issue.

If you are a wise candidate or canvasser you 🛑 👂

My Adoption advice for lesbians: Hurry up. Fascist theocrats are attempting to take away our adoption rights.
“federal legislation could be on the way. In July 2018, Republican representatives introduced a bill that would protect adoption agencies with state or federal contracts who discriminate on religious or moral grounds nationwide. “
The fight over gay adoption parallels the fight over marriage. Republicans have long fought our right to adopt and have “legitimate “ families. Marriage and adoption to them made us “normal” so they fought it with a passion. #queerpol
