Everyone gather around I have something to get off my chest.
#TheResistance got played like a fiddle with the #AlFranken accusations. Russia or the alt right took advantage of a hot button item and got us all heated.
Now, I'm guilty of getting worked up. Some of us took to our timelines, some of us vented to friends, some of us choose to stay quite.
My point here is most of us acted poorly. Whether it was slut shaming, or simply not letting facts about the incident in we all had a blind spot form.
There was infighting. There was name calling. There was a breakdown of our movement over all of this.

I'm sorry to anyone I may have offended with my strong stance over the past 24 hours. I fell for the trap.
We need to dust ourselves back off and rebuild any bridges we may have damaged. I do hope we can all come together after this divisive play. Again I sincerely apologize for any hurt feelings I may have caused.

With all the talk of AR-15s just being another gun I feel like I should address that. First off, the AR-15 is basically a copy of the M4/M16 in looks and functionality.
Now, I was trained how to use both the M4 and M16. It's amazing, it's light, accurate, durable, has little to no recoil, and it's easy to clean.
Part of training was shooting these weapons, we shot at targets shaped like people. Not deer, or wildlife people. We shot for center mass because that's your best chance to hit your target.

Pull up a seat and grab a cup the Earl Grey is hot. It's time to talk about the people trying to hijack #TheResistance on Nov 4th.
@stormresist2017 @Alyssa_Milano @BadHombreNPS @BeSeriousUSA @AZ_Indivisible @jacksnowknows @CaptainsLog2017 @Guinan2017 We have an active threat facing our movement. They come under the disguise of #RefuseFascism and they want to poison our resistance.
@stormresist2017 @Alyssa_Milano @BadHombreNPS @BeSeriousUSA @AZ_Indivisible @jacksnowknows @CaptainsLog2017 @Guinan2017 They are sponsoring the Nov 4th marches. They don't have the cleanest track record either

Seeing a lot of talk of violence pushed by trolls and bots with a few resistance accounts mixed in. So let's talk why that's not smart.
First off it discredits all the hard work we have all put in if let this talk turn into something real.
Warren buffet said it takes years to build a good reputation but only minutes to destroy it.
