@ensa @jess @lesbianhacker #ALEC is pushing for voter suppression policy, b/c voter suppression inherently reduces D votes (https://www.thenation.com/article/archive/alec-exposed-rigging-elections/). #FedEx also sponspored the NFL during #TakeAKnee, & thus acted to suppress the voices of #BlackLivesMatter in the NFL. This is most directly relevant to #GeorgeFloyd

Looters need to have more focus. When they loot anything arbitrarily, it dilutes their activism. Imagine if they only looted products made by right-wing #ALEC supporting companies (e.g. #Sony, #Bose, #AnheuserBusch, #Marlboro, #Motorola). They'd be hitting a somewhat relevant adversary.
Rioters seeking #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd,
Some of you are hitting completely arbitrary targets (e.g. #Target). If you're going to destroy a shop, at least choose one with meaning. E.g. companies who sponsored the #NFL while the NFL was retaliating against #TakeAKnee althletes:
Why most people fail to speak up against authoritarian regimes

#Pepsi (Gatorade, Frito-Lay, Quaker)
Proctor & Gamble (P&G) (Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Old Spice, Tide, Vicks)
Under Armour @UnderArmour
Yum! (Pizza Hut)
