Thread: Some abusive, violent, transphobic, racist antisemitic gems from #TheResistance which I'm publishing soon at @PasteMagazine. (1/?)
Shout out to @MikeyAmman for documenting so much of the abuse nobody talks about which is hurled at people on the Left, including #POC (2/?)
#LGBTQ, god forbid Arab-American, people like Mikey, and countless other people, including women. See it here (3/?)
This thread I'm doing now & the paste piece focuses on people with large reach & big megaphones or who are at least part of the (4/?)
ecosystem of Resistance Twitter. Also shout out to @ANON_LLC who I didn't realize had used & written about the term #AltWoke before (5/?)
I ever did. We use the term differently but there is some overlap. Let me preemptively say that people will tripleampersand.org/alt-woke-manif… (6/?)
respond to this in the following ways: they won't even acknowledge or pretend to care about people who face online abuse or violence (7/?)
if they are people, women, #POC, #LGBTQ to the left of #HRC bc they are fine with owning how little they care about them/us. They are (8/?)
entitled & used to erasing or lying about or mocking or pathologizing us that they will do that in their responses. They're also very (9/?)
dishonest & deflect so they will point to examples of abusive behavior that have already been exposed & talked abt & condemned & (10/?)
incorporated & packaged nicely into a media narrative & talking point, known as The Bernie Bros. They will also cite things said by (11/?)
random people online w/ no followers or no public identity & equate them with the people I'm citing here who range from @MSNBC hosts (12/?)
to journalists to people with huge online reach or, at the least powerful & least influential end of the spectrum, are codified as (13/?)
members of Resistance Twitter. Many of them are online allies of powerful journalists/influencers/pundits & appear on each others' & (14/?)
podcasts or RT & cosign each other. They will also constantly refer to a podcast which they like to pretend represents the entire (15/?)
Left bc, again, they can't stand being forced to acknowledge that there are women, POC, LGBTQ people who have politics. So sorry that (16/?)
we do. Also, prep for really stupid accusations of working for Russia, of using Right Wing talking points, though they themselves (17/?)
share talking points with Donald Trump & Henry Kissinger, not that they even pretend to know or care about Kissinger. OK. So, back to (18/?)
the gems. Here is an antisemitic cartoon made by #altRIght cartoonist Glenn McCoy that Sally Albright tweeted & turned into a moment. (19/?)
This is the best whitesplaining/ mansplaining I've ever seen.

If you call Leftists critical of #HRC Sean Hannity allies, then call yourself a Kissinger friend who uses war criminal talking points. (1/?)
It's an embarrassingly stupid argument but at least be consistent. And if you equate Sanders & Trump bc they both oppose #TPP, then (2/?)
you need to equate Trump with Feminist Majority, Doctors without Borders, the Sierra Club, Now & the countless other orgs & people (3/?)
