Gun culture at its finest, right here. Yikes!

Sunday DU follow back on Twitter party

Post your Twitter handle below and follow back your Dem Underground fam.

I've been posting on DU for fifteen years. I'm an avid resister and a progressive Dem. A lot of you know me and used to follow my old account there, but it was suspended for tweeting video of the Capitol insurrection. Twitter didn't like that I posted a link to a video that kind of showed a death. So, I had to start over with a new account.

That old account had 64,000 followers who I love. I'm almost back to 5,000 after just getting back into it for the past month. I love Democratic Underground even more than Twitter. DU is more intimate. I really love you guys. After fifteen years, I think of you all as extended family. We sometimes quarrel during the primaries, but we always come together in the end. We are Stronger Together. I mean that.

We've done Twitter follow back threads before, and they've been popular. My Twitter strategy is to be funny, make 'em laugh, and then hit 'em with some thought-provoking liberal ideas. People seem to like my content. If you want more funny, political content in your Twitter feed, please follow me. Here is an example of what I tend to tweet:

Larry Kudlow, working for the common man since *checks watch* ... uh, well...never.

Kudlow: "I’m particularly worried about corporate taxes which benefit the middle class and blue-collars."

Sure, pal.

'I'm Facing 8 Years in Prison': Georgia Rep. Park Cannon Speaks Out for First Time

'I'm Facing 8 Years in Prison': Georgia Rep. Park Cannon Speaks Out for First Time Since Arrest for Being Anti-Voter Suppression

Last week, Brian Kemp, Georgia’s governor of Black vote purgatory, surrounded himself with equally Klan-ish white men who appropriately stood in front of a plantation portrait while Kemp signed legislation that sent a single message to non-white voter demographics across the state: Either start voting Republican, or they’ll make it harder to vote at all.

The white men, who wore suits likely because Klan robes are out of season, closed the door to the room where it happens and watched as Kemp signed the legislation, but that didn’t sit right with state Rep. Park Cannon, who was arrested for knocking on the door to demand that Kemp stop being a punk-bitch and sign his little Jim Crow 2021 law in front of the people. On Thursday, Cannon spoke out for the first time since her arrest.

Cannon spoke during a press conference in front of the John Lewis mural on Auburn Avenue on Thursday morning. After describing her experience as “painful, both physically and emotionally,” she dropped a bomb that should only further enrage people who are already enraged at the injustice of voter laws that even Kemp sort of admitted are largely arbitrary—Cannon said she’s facing eight years for knocking on a door.

“I felt as if time was moving in slow motion,” Cannon said while holding back tears. “As difficult as it is to acknowledge that I am facing eight years in prison on unfounded charges...I believe the governor’s signing into law the most comprehensive voter suppression bill in the country is a far more serious crime. A law with such nefarious qualities that several of Georgia’s Fortune 500 companies have begun knocking on the door.”

It's more like a ransom demand than it is legislation.

Releasing the details of a 5,000 page bill just a few hours before the scheduled vote, is not a good way to govern. It's more like a ransom demand than it is legislation.

And why does it include $500,000,000 for Israel? How is that related to a Covid stimulus bill?

How are our legislators supposed to make an informed decision on this bill if they are given two hours to read a 5,000+ page document? It's ridiculous. This is no way to govern a large nation. We should demand better from Congress.

No one can explain "Defund the Police" or "Abolish the Police" as well as activists can.

This Defund The Police interview originally got over 3 million views precisely because no one on TV has the will or ability to explain it as well as protesters fighting for it can. Time to reup
