Other Actions: We’ve updated our action on Senator Lindsay Graham with a letter from ethics and law professors to use with senators who might be reluctant to out one of their own. (Senator Feinstein, we’re looking at you.) Please call your senators, and ask them to do the right thing. We are so tired of the corruption of the Trump administration and their enablers and we won’t stand silent as it happens again.
(https://indivisibleventura.org/…/wed-11-18-lindsey…/)Inside the action, we shared an older video from Keith Olbermann, from when Obama was our president-elect. He reminded us then, and it’s just as true now, that corruption unaddressed, becomes the normalized foundations for new levels of criminal behavior. https://youtu.be/KM-6MaToThE The history is clear. We need to chase it all down.
Tell Tim Cook to stop offering the Parler app.: Infowars, whose podcasts were banned by Apple, is now a regular on Parler, an barely-moderated app that Apple offers, along with the usual suspects of the far-right. The platform’s popularity is increasing exponentially as Twitter and Facebook have gotten more serious about moderating hateful and false posts. It didn’t sit well with us that the maker of our beloved Ipads is enabling political extremism, even one step removed. So we wrote Tim Cook an email and you can too. https://indivisibleventura.org/…/11-13-dear-tim-please…/
Want to know what’s on the Parler site without actually opening it?: (http://www.wiesenthal.com/assets/pdf/parler_report_final-2020.pdf)Feel free to reference it in your comment to Tim Cook.
Canned Food Drive: BLM-VC is running a canned food drive until mid-December. Help isn’t coming from our soon-to-be-ex-president and the miscreants in our Senate, and people are in need.
Check out upcoming events here and keep your resistance calendar updated. Sometimes we’re late getting this notice out, so get ahead of us here and sometimes you have to sign up for particular events a day ahead of time. (https://indivisibleventura.org/events-having-tomorrow/)
