Both the ACLU and CREDO help you tell our FBI to stop classifying certain activists it doesn't like as "black identity extremists." You already know that whenever Our Glorious Elites call someone an "extremist," they're not in any way an actual "extremist" like Our Glorious Elites are, right? I mean, it's classic projection. But of course FBI spying on black activists is a long and notorious tradition in America -- note their spying on Dr. King and Malcolm X in the '60s. Today's Black Lives Matter activists (and I do feel sorry for you if you felt a shiver of rage just in reading those words!) battle police brutality all over America, so naturally our FBI takes that not as anti-racism but "anti-cop," which means spying on activists like they're criminals. Spying on folks for their First Amendment-protected activities is actually illegal, right now, so clearly our FBI needs our counsel.
Meanwhile, Tennessee residents, take note: two more anti-gay bills -- SB 1297, which would call it "indecent exposure" whenever a transgender person uses a locker room, and SB 1304, which would let private adoption agencies refuse to allow gay couples to adopt kids -- will get state Senate committee hearings today (Tuesday), at around 3 pm, so the Tennessee Equality Project helps you tell Tennessee state Senators to reject both of these bills. People that afraid of a transgender person in their locker room really need to get over themselves, frankly, and people who won't let gay couples adopt should remember that the whole purpose of getting kids adopted is to get them good parents. It sure does seem like the Tennessee state legislature proposes a lot of anti-gay legislation, doesn't it? But it also seems like a lot of it dies without getting a vote, which is a testament to the Tennessee Equality Project -- and also to you.
In other news, our Administration has lately announced that it'll reduce fines to nursing home corporations that don't protect their residents' health, because law and order! For this Administration, "law and order" is clearly only for "little people" like us, not "big people" like corporate executives. Hence Social Security Works helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject these proposed changes with legislation protecting our seniors. When you hear that our Administration has reduced fines to nursing homes that didn't disinfect their equipment properly between uses, you may be reminded that the state of Florida cited our President's own "winter White House," his Mar-a-Lago resort, almost 80 times for health violations over a three-year period, and thus you'll also be reminded that our President's animus toward regulation is personal -- and making everything so personal is precisely the opposite of what real leaders do. America deserves better.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to promote real internet freedom in America by passing H.R. 1644, the Save the Internet Act, then Stop the FCC still helps you do that. For this Administration's FCC, of course, "internet freedom" is only about "freedom" for big corporations to keep you away from websites they don't want you to visit; the Save the Internet Act would restore the 2015 Open Internet Order that codified net neutrality into law, thus allowing you, and not some corporation, to determine where you want to go on the internet. "Net neutrality," admittedly not the most resonant phrase ever conceived, describes the principle that internet service corporations should treat all network traffic the same, rather than prioritize some traffic over others. That means net neutrality is internet freedom -- for all of us! -- so we should pass the Save the Internet Act to bring it back.
