I’ve tweeted before about growing up in Belfast during the Troubles, and the link between inflammatory rhetoric and violence.
I won’t reprise that tonight.
But it’s grimly, blindingly obvious to me that someone’s going to get hurt or killed between now and Election Day 2020.

This is the sound of illberalism, intolerance. Listen closely: it's a danger not just to immigrants and minorities but to all Americans. Put politics aside. Time for leaders from all parts of society, people from all walks of life, to step up and say: enough. https://t.co/ArYeu2KQu4

How do you unlearn algorithmically targeted paranoia rooted in hate and fostered in infancy? We're all about to find out if they can or will.
This will endure, no matter what happens electorally over the next few years. https://t.co/Lxmzl4XRGv

I grumbled when @chrislhayes said they were going to show Trump rally footage, but it really is something that kind of has to be seen. We can’t look away from it. We can’t pretend it isn’t there. https://t.co/VUIDnNXImy

Trump, the president of the United States, tells supporters at his rally he can stay all night because he has "nothing to do."

A new low water mark for Trump. And It will only get worse between now & November 2020 because his party has confirmed he can get away with anything. https://t.co/Kgth3Qwdhw

Just an extraordinarily chilling thing to see the leader of one political party revel in a chant to literally deport a political opponent.

I won't keep spamming my TNR bit but I feel compelled to note that every stagger Trump takes towards pure racial fascism is led by Fox News. The more white nationalist they get the more white nationalist he gets, because it's all he watches and he obsesses over their approval.

We must call out those who remain silent. We must initiate impeachment proceedings to hold him accountable. And we must build an unstoppable grassroots movement that resoundingly defeats not just Trump, but complicit Republicans everywhere.

So just to be clear, the reason we aren't starting impeachment on the most criminal "president" in history is so that we don't alienate this crowd of mouth breathers at the #TrumpRally chanting "send them back"? Cool strategy, Dems. #ImpeachNow

The internet was awash with this rubbish in 2016, which was OK-ish as it's based on fairly common economic misunderstandings. To still be peddling it more than three years later implies either a total dearth of interest in the evidence or a disrespect for the reader. https://t.co/3FsEkBoDgl

“The result of a consistent and total substitution of lies for factual truth is not that the lie will now be accepted as truth and truth be defamed as a lie, but that the sense by which we take our bearings in the real world … is being destroyed.”
