Great. This is a necessary behavior in the face of the election of the most overtly racist, sexist, xenophobic, anti- gender and sexual minority candidate in the history of the modern United States.

But don’t do it without a plan. Because the very last thing a tense situation needs is someone full of good intentions but with no knowledge of de-escalation tactics or self-defense. Your intentions are not a tangible shield. If you don’t make a plan, you will get yourself or the person you are trying to defend very killed.

Let’s avoid that.

So make a plan.

Some of you can stop reading now. You have, or know how to make a plan and you don’t need…

“The hardest part for anyone to admit in all this is that in order to support someone elses right to be safe, their right to live as a human being, we need to sacrifice our own mental safety for a period of time to effect action that benefits everyone.” So True a long read but so worth it. ~~dru~~

This may seem ridiculous but as I see it, Donald Trump is a puppet.

The former director of the KGB, Vladimir Putin, does not have friends; he has subjects, operatives, and useful idiots: he has puppets.

Putin’s favored weapon against enemy governments is weaponized disinformation.
