COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

.@apronman: "progressive" is a new name for an old condition. Replace you & @LEBassett referring to (your quote) "old white guy[s]" with "Jews", "gypsies", "Hutus", "Chinese", etc etc and then compare with propaganda from decades or centuries past. You won't find a difference.

@LEBassett @AOC She was a bartender. She's had years of experience with sad, drunk old men who think she has to listen to them.

.@howtoheretic: here's a fun activity if you aren't afraid of the results. In what @LEBassett writes, replace "old white males" with "Jews", "Hutus", "Tutsis", "Serbs", "Croats", and so on. Then, compare it to past propaganda against those groups. #HuffPost
