"We should accept that the younger generation in Iran does not want us. The reform movement is dead."

“I have a 20-year career of making enemies,” says Reza Aslan, whose book tour has been curtailed by security issues. “It’s the first time I’ve been sent death threats by my fellow countrymen.”

Dear PM @RishiSunak  - by the time you leave #COP27  in SharmElSheikh this weekend, @alaa  - a UK citizen unjustly jailed in Egypt for a decade - will either be free or dead from hunger strike. Which one is up to you. Please help us #SaveAlaa . @Monasosh  @sana2  @PENamerica ⁩

Khamene’i could come out tomorrow and say Iranians can wear whatever the hell they want to and it wouldn’t make one iota of difference. GenZ doesn’t want reform. It wants revolution. This can only end with the current regime burned to the ground.

Welp I guess I’ll just make the New Year’s resolution early. Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram already deactivated. Twitter was the hardest to let go…until yesterday. Wish I could say it’s been real but… Hope to see y’all IRL ❤️


This is pretty much exactly how how I imagined Trump’s America.

Muslim man who stockpiled weapons & bomb material freed on bond. Just kidding it was a white neo-Nazi named Brandon.

Also note that POTUS is so mind bogglingly stupid he thinks the expelled diplomats have been fired. They are still paid State employees.

We are in a moment of profound moral clarity for this country. There are only two sides. You either support the demonstrably racist, sexist, lecherous, white nationalist leader in the White House or you oppose him. Every American must decide. There is no middle ground anymore.

Trump can't condemn racism and white supremacism because he is a racist and a white supremacist.

(THREAD) Peter’s experience has spurred me to share mine. 2 weeks ago, as I was crossing back into Israel from Jordan, I was separated from my family and detained by Shin Bet. “We can make it so you don’t see your kids for a long time” I was warned. This is what happened next

Breaking news: @DemSocialists  endorses Trump for President.
