This is absolutely shameless. It's rank whataboutism. 6,500 migrant workers died in Qatar during their World Cup bid Qatari police have arrested, beaten, and tortured Queer people Women have few civil liberties This isn't "nuance," it's apologia. https://t.co/kv9tmtEnxw

This thread makes some very good points. I shared the promotion of the list because I thought it was indicative of how far-right influencers saw the tide changing on Twitter. But this is definitely food for thought. https://t.co/UnxiNVBAKt

I'm at the Public Order Emergency Commission right now, waiting for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to testify. Rather than livetweet, I'm running a liveblog over on my Substack — you can join in and ask questions, make comments, and just hang out. https://t.co/RU1CB7IYSO

As Elon Musk offers amnesty, far-right influencers are trying to deplatform their critics. Under the guise that anyone who reports on or criticizes the far-right is "antifa," they've identified thousands of accounts (including mine!) to be reported for suspension.

Those who would push Ukraine to the negotiating table might want peace, but a short-term ceasefire will only give Russia the opportunity to prolong this war. https://t.co/TekNtgFJSC

We shouldn't have to rely on regular folks to stop mass shootings. But, also, *of course* a drag queen stepped up to kick the shit out of the gunman. Don't fuck with drag queens! https://t.co/qgb3ICXaJ7

I remember seeing this sentiment (minus the 2A stuff) from progressives amid a wave of terror attacks inspired by the Islamic State. It was bad then, it's bad nowm Yes, you can prevent violence. You can identify those who have been radicalized and intervene. 'Evil' is a cop out https://t.co/ZiTsNqXjvK

Another hate based attack on the Queer community, following months of escalating homophobia and transphobia from paranoid populist across North America and Europe. On far-right channels this morning, they are *celebrating* the attack. https://t.co/sivGjB2uWg

what's fantastic is that Twitter Blue's edit button doesn't work for threads, so Elon can't even fix that typo in Meaty Carl Jung's name https://t.co/V1k87j0jXy

ok we could look past the state-mandated sexism, the homophobic laws, the miserable treatment of migrant workers, the limits on freedom of speech, the lack of a free press, the jailing of dissidents, but THIS? sirs you've gone too far https://t.co/1QMzNC5zY1

hey folks there's a lot of misinformation flying around right now about the state of twitter a good way to tell if a source is legitimate is to check and see if they have a blue 'verified' check marhahahahahaha

Just a week ago we noted it was mostly Chinese students abroad protesting. Even then they were rare & only in tiny, tentative groups. Now, after seeing the risks ppl have taken at home, they are shouting for Xi to step down in front of the Chinese embassy in London. Courage grows https://t.co/SxzLUqDfRA

Support: Many Beijingers support the the protests. Around 2 a.m. I perched on an overpass of the East Third Ring Road. The southbound lanes were jammed, with drivers all honking their horns in a deafening show of support. I have never seen anything remotely like it in Beijing.

Pay attention to all the young women on the front lines of China's protests, being the first to take action. Their discontent has been mounting for many years prior to this moment. https://t.co/0WZlPTrJTf

Last night, Congressman Paul Gosar tweeted a link to a column written by Kevin DeAnna, a white supremacist who uses the pen names "Gregory Hood" and "James Kirkpatrick." The column calls for "pro-white candidates" to openly embrace racist positions in future elections.

Musk uses Latin phrase he wrongly thinks praises "the voice of the people." It is from an ancient warning to *not listen* to anyone who says "the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the riotousness of the crowd is always very close to madness." https://t.co/4VbOXPdOrE https://t.co/UMtlvud3h1

The father of the Colorado shooter is more horrified by the thought of his son being a gay man than by the reality of his son as a mass murderer. Homophobia poisons every heart it touches.

So many people are so surprised that a combat vet was at a LGBTQ club. It shows how little people know about vets and about LGBTQ clubs.

The raid on the Stonewall Inn was state-sponsored violence. The attack on Club Q in Colorado Springs last night... well, we're waiting on the full details. But it looks like GOP-sponsored violence. Not just the logical result of the "groomer" blood libel, but the goal.

Since the run-up to Pride, MAGA influencers used the LGBTQ+ community to stir hate in Trump’s base. From Posobiec’s “groomer” thing to Libs of Tik Tok to Matt Walsh, we know the names. The feeling of inevitability around the Colorado attack makes it hurt twice as much for me.

i'm incredibly sad, but i'm even more angry. the same people who will tell you not to politicize this are the same people who have been politically targeting our community for the last 12 months
