#JamesSchwarzenbach war ein xenophobes Arschloch und ein Demagoge der übelsten Sorte. Und er war Spross einer stinkreichen Familie und damit Teil der Elite, spielte sich aber als Verteidiger des von #Zuwanderung bedrohten, kleinen Mannes in der #Schweiz auf.
If you call for #Antifa to be put on a list of #terrorist organizations, you
a) have not understood how Antifa actually functions as a non-hierarchic #grassroots movement.
b) have to answer the question if you are or sympathize with actual #fascist|s.
Safe to say that Total Recall is not #HanKuoyu's favourite movie...
More on today's historic vote here:
No more Korean fish in #Kaohsiung's townhall: #HanKuoyu is the first head of one of #Taiwan's special municipalities to get recalled from office.
Two years ago, Han had gathered 892'545 votes in his favor to become the mayor of the nation's second largest city. Today 939'090 votes were in favour of his recall and only 25'051 against. Looks like the #KMT's call not to participate in the recall vote resonated with its supporters.
A defeat for Han and the KMT, a win for #democracy in Taiwan.
Great to see #Trump losing one talking point after the other in his nonsensical attempt to further divide the people in the #UnitedStates - citizens of different colours, migrants of different statuses, be it legal or not.
His attacks on #NFL players who #takeaknee during the anthem have been harsh and relentless. Keep in mind that 70% of the NFL players are #POC, but none of the club owners. Better take a stance late than never. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/06/nfl-apology-treatment-players-anti-racism-protests-200606132619033.html
Great to see that in the current tense situation in the #UnitedStates some people do not refuse to leave their bubble and to engage with the other side to understand their motives.
I have ripped into #DrewBrees for parroting #Trump's false stance on #takeaknee protests. Now I have to compliment him for talking to team mates and members of the black community to understand the issue at hand.
Admitting that you've been wrong is never easy. Neither is contradicting Trump. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-backs-drew-brees-flag-protests-despite-apology_n_5ed02984c5b68bf40e3773b2
Cops need to be held accountable, and their use of force needs to be appropriate at all times. Neither of the two seems to be the case in Buffalo.
On the birdie network of shame whichs name shalt not be mentioned in the Fediverse, #GOP piece of shit #MattGaetz calls for hunting down #Antifa *terrorists* in cities in the #UnitedStates «as terrorists are hunted down in the #MiddleEast». Some folks really want a #CivilWar, do they? Some state-sponsored assassinations by Navy Seals and some drone attacks in the centres of American cities, anyone? If you do not agree, #vote out GOP dickheads like Gaetz in November!
Schön, wenn 40 Keyboard-Warriors und völkische Maulhelden heute ihre Kampfhose mal gestrichen voll haben.
Es darf kein sicheres Hinterland für #Hetze und #Mordaufrufe geben. Solche Entgleisungen müssen zeitnah Konsequenzen haben. #Luebcke wurde bereits ermordet. Zeit, mit diesem gewaltbereiten #Rechtspack aufzuräumen, mit den Mitteln des Rechtsstaats. https://www.dw.com/en/german-police-raid-hate-speech-suspects-in-politician-s-murder-case/a-53686948?maca=en-rss-en-all-1573-rdf
Yo bum, you could have asked plenty of POCs in your own bloody team what the #takeaknee protests are all about - and no, it's not to disrespect a silly flag, you patridiotic mouth-breathers! But instead of asking team mates, Drew chose to believe the lies of Trump.
That this has happened in the week before the 31st anniversary of the #Tiananmen massacre is simply infuriating: The orange idiot in chief makes it way to easy for #Beijing's propaganda to deflect criticism with whataboutism.
Oh, I see the blowfrog in chief is already backpedaling on his threat to deploy the #USArmy against protests in cities across the #UnitedStates, even against the will of governors, mayors and his own Secretary of Defense. Can we call this immature bully a shit-talker from here? And treat him as such?
Don't quote him - have him analyzed by a psychiatrist, again and again. Mad is as mad does.

#Beijing can do what it likes, it can even outlaw vigils in #HongKong, but the #massacre on #Tiananmen square will not be forgotten. The #CCP has spilled the blood of its own people, again and again. This regime must fall.
From silencing doctor #LiWenliang and others (December 2019) to not answering questions from #Taiwan regarding a novel virus similar to SARS (December 31st) to denying person-to-person infections all the way to January 31st, #China was not fully transparent. China tried to keep its face - and landed squarely on it instead.
A #government that hides behind shields and barricades is #illegitimate.
A government that threatens its own citizens with military violence is illegitimate.
A president trying to blame damages from violent protests against #police #violence to #Antifa, trying to label them as domestic terrorists, is a #fascist himself.
The orange idiot needs to be gone before the #constitution is gone.
The #UnitedStates are approaching the very scenario that its founding fathers had in mind when they came up with the right to carry arms to protect the #constitution, the #sovereignty of the country and the health and lives of its people against an usurper of the office resorting to #illegitimate acts of violence.
This is the DC Black Lives Matter Twitter account saying the #dcblackout is fake.
Ich bin kein bisschen überrascht.
Was mich überrascht: Wie viele Menschen den als pro-#Israel-Position nur schwach verhüllten #Antiislamismus der neuen Rechten mit einer Freundschaft zum #Judentum verwechseln. Macht Euch nichts vor: auch die #neueRechte ist durch und durch antisemitisch, und das Gewäsch von der judeo-christlichen Leitkultur reine Heuchelei.
