MoveOn is an amazing organization w/ massive advocacy reach.
One day, 3 people on their 6 person board are outed as tied directly to Richard Spencer's neoNazi group. People are incensed & demand these 3 board members resign! MoveOn defends them and Just. Moves. On.

.@womensmarch has tweeted words and taken zero action. Window is closed. #GoodbyeWM #WeAreNotWanted #womensmarch
These @womensmarch chapters put out pretty words. The national #womensmarch controls the database. The database won.
#WomensMarch state leaders are afraid of demanding accountability. They receive no $💵$ or funding accountability from national @womensmarch.
Let's go back to the drawing board. #NoWomensMarch. It's useless seeking empowerment from 'leaders' who live in fear and chose invisibility.
The movement began in reaction to Trump & the media's misogynistic treatment of the first Woman to win a major-party presidential nomination
We now know it is more important to the #womensmarch chain to protect their brand than to protect real women. Like most commercial brands.
The silver lining of losing my very last fuck to give about #womensmarch is never having to hear another moronic argument about pussy hats.
I love pussy hats. They were about pussy as in cat 🐱 and vaginas. Even that beautiful spontaneous thing got battered. I'm buying one now.💕 💝
Who has lived to survive the stupidity of someone trying to convince you pussy hats are exclusively for white women's vaginas. Fucking hell😂
Everything we did for gobbled up and spit out. All the beautiful work, energy and courage women created was demeaned. By the @womensmarch.
"The hats are a response to Trump’s remarks about grabbing women by the pussy. #Not4Sale. They are a gift from the knitter to the marcher."
Women got hat shamed and then shamed for voting trump at #March2ThePolls event when no woman in that stadium did. Notice the similarities?🤔
Why would anyone at a #WomensMarch event about voting scold the women who showed up who had nothing to do with trump women except to shame?
Where it all began.
A man, Farrakhan, has so much power over the women running national #WM they can't denounce him & state party women can't denounce national.
"Such a #NastyWomen"
Trump to Clinton during the 3rd presidential debate. This became a viral worldwide #CallToMarch
ACT-UP reclaimed the inverted pink triangle Nazis forced gay male prisoners to wear to protest Reagan's failure to fund AIDS research. 1980s
The origins of the pink triangle span back to its use to identify homosexuals in the Nazi concentration. camps…
Prior to the pink triangle, gay men were marked with a sewn on capital A, which stood for Arschficker, the German word for ‘arsefucker’.
The pink triangle became a pro-gay symbol in 🇺🇸, turned upright to transform a symbol of humiliation into one of solidarity and resistance.
A pink triangle forms the basis for various #LGBT+ memorials around the world: the Homomonument in Amsterdam...
...the Gay and Lesbian Holocaust Memorial in Sydney...
...the Pink Triangle Park in San Francisco...
...the Pink Triangle Monuments Against Homophobia in Barcelona... triangle for gay men and pink star for gay Jews. German illustration defining the meaning of each concentration camp badge from 1936
People's understanding and associations of symbolism are fluid, conditioned and learned. Pink has come to mean Power. Homomonument, Sitges
Gulabi Gang protect women from violent husbands. They march together united by shocking pink saris & bamboo sticks to threaten male abusers.
Pussyhat was chosen by Ms Coyle as a protest to de-stigmatize "pussy" and transform it into a symbol of empowerment.
Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman conceived the idea of a sea of pink hats that would make both a bold & powerful visual statement of solidarity.
This was the beginning. The march was hatched with sisterhood, love and imagination. The sea of pink showed pride and power! But was shamed.
So along with obtaining permits, scheduling volunteers/staff and confirming routes with local authorities, we had to argue about pink hats.
Obviously there's not a single vagina on the planet this color so why did @womensmarch waste our time? It seems like sabotage in retrospect.
Got mine.
#ITMFA #PinkHat benefits @PPact

Show me yours.💕👊

I have to say I am very disappointed in my father who I admire more than just about anyone. Being disappointed in a man you chose to love singularly when you were three-years-old as he sat just so on a sofa, is not easy. He taught me the NYTimes was essential to Hitler's success.
At the age of 84, he believes every word it prints. How does a man teach subliminal imagery – decoding the manipulation of advertising – tearing through 70's train cars to pull alcohol and cigarette ads down to study in his college lectures, rely solely on the @nytimes coverage?
He shared evidence of how @nytimes buried and obscured what was happening to Europe's Jews. But now there is no possibility for dialogue. In his home, there is one viewpoint, the viewpoint of the Times' editors and their correspondents on the ground delivered right to their door.

#MarchForwardMA @MarchForwardMA wins. We have been assessing statements from hundreds of chapters and orgs regarding #WomensMarch #AntiSemitism. We can conclude this statement is the most shockingly offensive yet. Comments are equally disgusted. #EpicFail…
"We acknowledge that much of the demand to ‘condemn’ or ‘renounce’ Farrakhan is not itself a call to work for justice on behalf of marginalized communities, but is merely performative. We are not merely performative allies together in this movement." @MarchForwardMA #VictimShames
The Comments:

"All good. This was the last straw.
Check out We Are March On (@WeAreMarchOn):…"
