Pinned toot

For Elizabeth,

for Kamala,

for Amy,

for Kirsten,

—but not for Tulsi or Marianne, because I don’t believe they were for us—

and always for Hillary,

and with hope for women who have yet to run,

my fire will not extinguish no matter who tries to douse it.

Good afternoon!

After bouncing around a few instances and learning quite a bit about over the last 14 months, Heroes Resist has decided to establish it's own instance.

This has been in our minds for quite some time since people on Twitter/birdsite asked me to find a place to gather for social media that would be safe for resistance work and away from Twitter's constant account limitations, privacy invasions, and Trump.

That place has been created.

@IronMan
The cabinet and the people he appoints are the main reasons we need him in.
Republicans are anti science, anti progress and they are pro hate and pro corporations being able to ruin the planet. Those are the last kinds of people you want running energy, education, and labor.
At least democrats have face to save and wont be actively destroying our nation even if we aren't getting the radical change we need.

There is only one poll that counts; the final count on November 3, 2020.

Trump needs to lose by many millions to show the door to him and everyone who supports him. That is completely possible. He lost the last election's popular vote and his polls are crashing.

In 139 days, we fire Donald Trump and every Republican we can who enables the worst man to ever hold elective office.

I'm sure a lot of Trumpers and insensitive jerks are going to flip out about a brand name change of a product that they probably never think about or use, but the story behind this is way racist and it should have been done a long time ago.

Change is good, though. Change comes from speaking up. Always speak up.

End Cash Bail now.
2/3 of Prisoners in California haven't been convicted but wait in jail because they can't afford bail - the rich folks, of course, are not among them. If you're stuck in jail you can't defend yourself, so the outcome is predetermined against the poor. The system is predatory. It's why "we have the best justice system money CAN BUY" it needs to end. Bail Bondsmen are part of the Prison industrial Complex. bit.ly/2YFmQ4h

@NatashaRomanova We knew Trump has the object permanence of an infant. Turns out Pence's brain has regressed to that level as well. Being a Republican is bad for your development! @IronMan

@QueenRamonda Out of town & out of state counterprotesters too.

There's a good rationale for going to DC where 100,000 or more gather for protests and rallies no matter what your cause. Same with going your state capital, the nearest large city, or wherever your elected officials meet. It takes some real hatred to decide you need to take a trip to a tiny town far away to intimidate people calling for justice.

First, it's a welcome sight to see protests everywhere and going still.

But why do the counter protesters get to pack guns and hide behind the flag and nothing happens? If a bunch of armed BLM protesters started moving toward a police line, all hell would break loose.

A tiny Ohio town’s Black Lives Matter event was overrun by armed counterprotesters:

When important votes come up in Congress, the 700,00 citizens in D.C. have no Senators or House Rep they can call to voice their opinion.

It's time for the rest of us to stand up for them& give them a voice.

Contact your House Rep& tell them that D.C. deserves Statehood!

Activism can sometimes take the form of contacting dictionary editors. Words are important, and I'd say lexicographers are more aware of that than most people.

Drake University graduate Kennedy Mitchum, 22, has convinced Merriam-Webster editors to update the definition of to emphasize systemic racism, a concept that many white people evidently need to have defined.

@IronMan

I didn’t either but let me take a guess that he did nothing, made a massive show about it, took a side against Americans, and took a shot at a Democrat.

@IronMan

doesn't care if you test for it or not. It's not going to go away just because you ignore it.
