"I'm a historian" Twitter is almost as good as "I wrote the article" Twitter. πŸ˜‚
Saaaad. He blocked me. But not before I could see that he a) deleted his tweet and b) tried another tack, this time claiming a photo from a police funeral in WI was the Democrats protesting Coolidge's inauguration. #itneverends

Let's just stop and remember that if you're that desperate to use fake evidence from 90 years ago to make your point, you might...not have a point.
I am also going to take a wild guess that I am the single biggest referrer to the Wisconsin Historical Society's website. πŸ˜‚

So yes, sending people gruesome beheading videos is decidedly not ok. (How does she know it was a Democrat, though?)

But it's puzzling how people like this didn't seem to mind when a woman was *actually murdered* and their President called her murderers "very fine people." πŸ€”
And I know this is essentially reverse whataboutism, but it's what infuriates me over and over:

The right always seems to draw the first blood, pretend they didn't, and then feign outrage when they provoke a reaction.
You guys should see the nasty shit people send me.

And I'm a fucking genealogist.

On the off chance you don't already know this, you can right click on a photo and it brings up the option to search for the image on Google.

Doing this on the above would immediately show you where it was from.

This is how I found the original "Klanbake" photo in 3 seconds.
You can also use the image search function on yandex.com.

Or tineye.com.

I'd like to share the story of a Rosh Hashana miracle.

For two years -- TWO YEARS --I have repeatedly complained to @Xfinity that I was being charged for On Demand movies we didn't order. Including when we weren't home.

Many, but not all of them of the, um, adult variety.
Every time it happened I would call and complain.

And the customer service rep would insist that the movie had in fact been ordered and watched in my home.

And I would know that it had definitely not.
Yesterday it happened again.

Two kids movies that we never ordered.

This time a @comcastcares rep named Matt actually took the time to look up which cable box the movies were ordered on. It was a box, he said, labeled β€œDen2.”

OK. Except that we don’t have a den.

Googling "how can you tell if fish is bad" is probably a sign that the fish is bad, right?
Purchased Tuesday. Sell by date was today. Do I really need to throw out $25 worth of salmon? It didn't smell bad, just...strongly fishy. <weeping>
It always cracks me up which tweets generate massive response.

<Now putting "bad fish" in that column.>

Two stunning pieces of #resistancegenealogy today:

@megansmolenyak returns to Lahren's tree (Yes! There's more!) medium.com/@smolenyak/the…

and this sheer unadulterated brilliance by Stephen Miller's uncle, which says everything I've ever tried to say.

These people traffic in anti-immigrant stereotypes and propaganda. In myths meant to demonize.

But the unvarnished FACTS of the historical record show that we are indeed a #nationofimmigrants, including those now shouting loudest to close the door. #resistancegenealogy
This story is about his mom's family, but don't forget that Stephen Miller's paternal ancestor failed his citizenship test.

The point is not to shame anyone, but rather to engender compassion for contemporary immigrants as we would hope it would have been extended to ours.

I always assume everyone knows I know this.

Maybe not.
Because we all know how rigorously memes like this are fact checked. And spell checked. πŸ€ͺ
I'm fascinated by the people who post them repeatedly as gospel. Do *they* really believe that just because you put words on a photo, they're true?
