And donate to @IFAKFUND to get life-saving first aid into people’s hands. If you’re in/near DC, DM me or connect with @RemoraHouse_DC and we can get you trained on how to treat gunshot/stabbing wounds. It sucks that this is where we are, but we need to be prepared.

I see a lot of people saying “learn how to use firearms,” and I don’t think they’re wrong but I want to add: Learn how to treat gunshot wounds. Holding death in my hands has never made me feel safer, but holding life in them does.

Shaming someone for falling victim to a phishing attack is bullshit at the best of times. We are all on edge these days, which is exactly what phishing attacks exploit to short circuit our brains into falling for them. Shaming helps no one - thanks for sharing, @kelseyhightower

Some of the responses to this thread highlight why people only talk about their successes and pretend they never make mistakes.

Telling everyone I know don’t work with ShutDownDC. Coast to coast. Watch out for these clowns. Bad op-sec, dangerous tactics, bad at consent, top-down, doesn’t take critique well. All around they are not safe and at best, a non profit. At worse they are literally cops.

Saw a couple of people I know who are not prison or police abolitionists have the following exchange about police and the Texas school shooting on fb: "What the hell do cops protect us from?!" "Attacking the rich." People are starting to get it.

This is what happens when we adopt class politics but completely refuse to address white supremacy - we end up reproducing it and strengthening it.

People demanding that a sitcom about an underfunded Black elementary school do a school shooting episode are deeply unserious. This is esp. a problem amongst white leftists - we read a bunch of white European dudes' books about communism and then vomit it all over everyone else

Not many streams today, it looks like Santa and the morality police (aka the 1776 restoration movement) are heading out on a convoy to hand out flyers for Sat's rally. I believe they're going to local towns (not DC) The fake fire truck and school bus are both coming along. 1 of n

"They will refuse to grapple with the rot at the root–that this country is controlled by a subconscious yet pervasive and toxic way of living and thinking called white supremacy."
