There is a real opportunity now to make things better, an opportunity that sometimes only crisis opens. There is so much more clarity for so many about the nature of our system, so many ideas that may get a broader hearing now, and a chance to build imaginative new coalitions.

Today Trump declared war on the people of the United States, threatening states that if the did not request federal troops in their states, the troops would be deployed forcibly. That’s illegal, and it would invoke a civil war.

Now that people are listening; we've got a message to all US federal troops. Do not engage in illegal orders. If you do engage in illegal orders there will be severe consequences. It is illegal for federal troops to enter states without Governor approval #Anomymous 

"A riot is the language of the unheard." -Martin Luther King Jr.

What would Jesus do? I’m guessing he wouldn’t target people with tear gas and rubber bullets so he could get a photo op holding a Bible upside down. Just a wild hunch.

@realDonaldTrump  More insulting, he's using the death of George Floyd to attempt to distract from how bad he screwed up protecting businesses and families during the COVID-19 pandemic. "Looters " or "antifa " have nothing on the damage that @realDonaldTrump  did by failing to act on COVID-19.

Never in the lives of those who contribute to this account has there been a President who has been so fearful of addressing the concerns of the people. Instead, he constructs a boogeyman of "antifa" and promises the same violence that got us here. A total failure. @realDonaldTrump 

We're gearing up over here. We got our battle track selected. We love you all.

Powerful comment: Bishop Marian Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of DC says she is outraged that @realDonaldTrump  used StJohn’s (without asking them) as a backdrop for his photo op after clearing protesters “what we are witnessing now is the shredding of our national fabric” @CNN
