Student loans are a scam. That’s why I join , & to forgive ALL student loans AND make colleges tuition-free. PS: for the cost of the GOP tax scam (~$2 TRILLION), we could’ve already forgiven every student loan in America w/ billions left over.

We’re just a couple of girls, standing in front of a borough, organizing them to dismantle the carceral state. 😉 If you live in Queens and can vote, vote TOMORROW for ! (Set yourself a reminder🤳🏼) If you can’t vote, find a voter and send them to the polls.

Hi. Jew here. Everything about your behavior suggests that you have zero understanding of the Shoah. The Holocaust wasn’t only a genocide of Jews — it was a white supremacist vision of the world put into action. You, Rep. King, represent that vision. Never again is now.

Remember when the Bush administration bullied media into using their devised term “enhanced interrogation” instead of the accurate term “torture?” Well, waterboarding was torture. And these are concentration camps. Journalism should be about the truth. And this is the truth. ⬇️

I have absolutely zero patience for completely certified, card-carrying and flag-waving racists. None. 🚫 They can take their little tiki torches somewhere else. We don’t give them an inch, a second, a sliver of sunlight nor the time of day. And neither should you.

The last time you went on this trip it was reported that you also met w/ fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups to talk shop. So I’m going to have to decline your invite. But thank you for revealing to all how transparently the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain.

Hey , you’re the GOP Conference Chair - perhaps you should come collect your colleague before more members of your caucus start saying the quiet parts loud

Mr. King, the Republican Party literally stripped you of your Congressional committee assignments because you were too racist even for them. My Jewish constituents have made clear to me that they proudly stand w/ caged children who are starved, denied sleep & sanitation. Bye 👋🏽

#1: These are people protesting peacefully - hence their POSTERS & not FIREARMS #2: Why do you call some who threaten violent attack a “militia” vs others “domestic terrorists?”🤔 #3: This a very dramatic way to deal with your Sunday Scaries. We can help you find a therapist.

Just watched lie on . The vast majority of immigrants DO show up for court hearings & do not need to be incarcerated in inhumane & immoral conditions.

When a powerful entity is trying to grow a system of human rights abuse (which is what this is) it’s on ALL of us, from smallest to biggest, to throw sand in the gears and stop it. We cannot be compliant with child abuse. These judges are astounded at the argument for it ⬇️

Reminder this admin is CHOOSING to round up refugees seeking asylum, fighting to not give children toothpaste or soap & making people sleep on dirt floors. They say it’s bc of a lack of 💰. You know what saves money? Not putting masses of people in internment in the first place.

The GOP has supported building mass concentration camps on the southern border. Kids & families are dying. Now they want money for more - w/ ZERO negotiation on how $ is spent. We can’t do that. They‘ve shown that when they get more money, they build more camps.

Please share this info widely & make sure your neighbors have it. If your home can be a safe space or haven for others, let your neighbors and community know - even if it’s just to relax in the stress of this time. Plan, prepare, + protect our neighbors.
