TWEETS CAN KILL!
Giving voice to Trump must stop!
His tweets are
*abusive and harmful
*directing hate against a race, religion, gender, and orientation.
*threatening violence or physical harm
*pretending to be someone else (a responsible President)
After Donald’s nuclear tweets we decided to hold Twitter accountable. The headquarters are in our own backyard, and we need to show them the danger the put us all in by not banning Donald. They must honor the terms of service and ban Donald, or we’ll point their unethical behavior to their advertisers: https://www.facebook.com/events/129841534177316/

Urban Shield is a training program teaching local police
how to be more effective in controlling crowds of
demonstrators, and labeling protest groups as
terrorist organizations. The training is done by the Israeli
Secret police who do such a fine job on crowd control on
the Palestinians. We don’t want this is our nation.
