Retweeted by Fred BeukemaCoen allusions and echoes in Fargo S2, through episode 7! MST3K was marathon viewing in high school, but The Sopranos, on rented VHS, was 1st binge watch. #TheRevolutionWasTelevised
Remember when Howard Dean said the name of a state w an energetic lilt & had to drop out of the race?
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaWonder if the media will report that @DJJustNine dropped Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" and 1000+ people sang along. #Justice4Jamar
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaBloomington man still in custody. 3 total in custody.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaMan arrested in S MPLS related to 4th pct shooting released. Not at scene. Two white men, ages 26 & 21 in custody: turned themselves in.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaPeople love to say that if they were alive before the holocaust or civil rights movement they would do the right thing. Well it's time.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaIf one of the white supremacists shooting suspects has been released, it's time to quit bragging that two have been apprehended.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaYou got to hand it to Wesley, he got shot by white supremacist last night & back out protesting today (w cane). Epic
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaI assume the cops who did this will be charged with destroying evidence. (Ha ha ha. Just joking).
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaYou know, the sort of stuff police do when there is a threat.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaThe reason we have that still/video, unless I'm mistaken, is @webster (possibly others within the movement?) monitoring known hate sites.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@webster @section_sign Every time he points, I imagine him going “pew pew pew” in his modernity-frightened little brain.Is this the first-ever GIF of a die-in? What a time to be alive and on the internet.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema#Justice4Jamar #4thPrecinctShutDown #BlackLivesMatter While you're at the government center, consider registering to vote.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaBREAKING: 31 governors say they will no longer accept white males after shooting in Minneapolis. #4thPrecinctShutDown
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaRemember NYPD union guy claiming DeBlasio had blood on his hands? Well, MPD union ripped BLM + they got shot. Anybody check Kroll's hands?
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaThat it appears to be coming from the police and the city council president is disturbing.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema"The protests should end because of the violence of the people who oppose them" is an UNACCEPTABLE view in a civilized city.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaTo casually invoke fascism in the discussion of American politics is silly. To carefully invoke fascism is not.
Retweeted by Fred Beukemaif you think Trump claiming a #BlackLivesMatter protestor deserved to be "roughed up" is unrelated to Minneapolis shootings, you're mistaken
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@neiltyson (whispered: ClickHole’s a project of The Onion)@saralovesyou Someone must have this on video!I did not survive chemotherapy to write hot takes about donald motherfucking trump. yolo my people. Make it count

This is the @oldnavy ad I did with @OfficialJLD & @SnoopDogg. I ate a LOT of profiteroles & felt like throwing up.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@johnmoe "Those New Jersey Muslims sure did cheer."@johnmoe I want Carson's every public statement now to end with "I'm in the middle of a big bike race!"@section_sign I hope she gets a challenger in 2017 that makes her not be a CM anymore.
I got to do an @OldNavy ad with @OfficialJLD & @SnoopDogg. It. Was. Awesome.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaSack: Whatever happened to 'Keep Calm and Carry On?'
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaTrump's campaign has been the greatest systemic failure on the part of the media since either the run-up to Iraq or to the financial crisis

@cwethern Lorne Malvo! Run! here's the greatest selfie I will ever take in my life.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@dbrauer I hope you don’t mind, I shared this photo (with credit to you) on Facebook.@section_sign You in 9 or 12?@dbrauer Hard indeed
Retweeted by Fred Beukema
@ItsTheBrandi @section_sign His official dept photo is a powerful counter example in favor of judging books by covers.Never seen a police union head go after protestors AND the police chief who is going after protestors. Bwoy is that dude garbage.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@CalebMcEwen You were perfectly adequate!@scalzi o.O@TaneDanger Basically this: Kroll: Arrest the protesters. Harteau: No. Kroll: This is Benghazi.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaWas asked at @BNWImprov how to pronounce my last name. I guess it’s not 2010 anymore.Who among us hasn't repeatedly endorsed registering all Muslims in separate interviews by accident while running for president
Retweeted by Fred Beukemaif you eat your burrito over a tortilla, anything that falls out will simply start building your next burrito
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaNov 1-14: American media weirdly preoccupied with "Would you stop Hitler?" Nov 15-20: Serious discussion of registering religious minorities
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@chrislhayes I'm really shocked that our relationship with the Saudis isn't a GIGANTIC deal.@TPM I assume this was followed by "John", "Michael", "Smith", "Garcia", etc.When police decide to "crack down" on something that is legal, that isn't policing anymore.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaPart of what's happening here is GOP politicians projecting Europe's problems with radicalization (which are very real) onto the US
Retweeted by Fred Beukema
Good overview of what the Minneapolis mayor can, and mostly can't do.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaStriking how little impact the fact that the Paris attackers were neither Syrian nor refugees is having on the Syrian refugee debate.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@AdamSerwer 1. POTUS 2. WWI 3. NJ 4. Princeton 5. Birth of a Nation at the White House@AdamSerwer Of COURSE Woodrow Wilson was a racist pig. It's one of the first 5 pieces of information to know about him.@aric I feel like the paramedics are going to end up being the key witnesses.@claudepeck it was used outside and the wind blew?
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@dbrauer @solace I believe I said "there are 2 CMs and a state rep here, are you going to shoot us? Put your guns down."
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaI don't know who made this, but I love it.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaA couple of guys got hostile with police and protest leaders stood them down. #4thPrecinctShutDown
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@ItsTheBrandi Yes. She changed it after the Beirut attack last week.
In 2003 people warned that invading Iraq would open the gates of hell. Now that precisely that happened people are denying any connection.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaSeems cops standing by now that they know 2 Minneapolis City Council members are here. Thanks @lisabendermpls @CameronAGordon #Justice4Jamar
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@duntronic Near as I can tell (please correct me if you can find the reference), Jerry never says it, but Lester Nygaard does in season 1.Coen references and echoes in Fargo S2! Updated with episodes 4-6! I'd love if Delta Dental could take over medical. Maybe they can be the single payer?A striking contrast to the bed-wetters of the Republican party.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@BillLindeke @SkywayMusings They shut it down?! All hours? Why? (I was the structural engineer, and loved that project.)Thinking you hard homey but you ain't "Wearing An American Flag Hijab While Debating Megyn Kelly on Fox News" hard.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaA Saudi by way of Afghanistan pulls off 9/11 attacks; we invade Iraq. EU nationals carry out Paris attacks; we target Syrian refugees.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@anildash @kumailn The only scenario in which it doesn’t work, and that it annoys me, is at Target. Not sure why.
Ive written actual porn and I've never had a sexual fantasy as elaborate as @KurtSchlichter does here
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaTo recap: 1. All Paris attackers EU nationals 2. "Syrian" passports found at sites fakes made in Turkey 3. So, "pause" Syrian refugees
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaI feel like I'm somewhat desensitized to anti-Muslim bigotry, but the past couple days have been even worse than I expected.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaThe Making of a 'Terrorist': How I was framed for the Paris attacks by #GamerGate trolls
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaOne is a Nazi cartoon laughing at Jews denied entry to democratic countries. The other is the Daily Mail today.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaHere's what refugees go through before being allowed to enter the U.S.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@AsaHutchinson You monster.@GovernorDeal May God have mercy on your heartless soul.@GovWalker Thank God you will never wield your heartless policy from the White House.@GovPenceIN thoughtless, heartless, gutless.@SenDanCoats Grow up, sir.@GovernorBentley What a heartless policy, and a coup for ISIS.@JohnKasich What a terrible thing to do to these poor people.@RandPaul How heartless and thoughtless.@RealBenCarson No thank you. That is the opposite of what we should do.@BobbyJindal What a horrible, un-Christian thing to do.
In case you think there’s no difference between the political parties, I bring you this week.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaIncidentally, I've added a few bits to the Storify in my last tweet, hopefully to its benefit.Mr. @section_sign said some typically-smart stuff, which I used for some thoughts on immigration & ISIS"Black lives matt...." "ALL LIVES MATTER" *syrians show up* "What?!!! Fuck! No!!!"
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaMake sure you're a good Christian by saying Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays when you're turning away refuges.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaIf you want to politicize refugee issues, do it by using asylum as an expressive tool of condemnation for the state of origin.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@johnmoe I would pay good money for the output of this project. Or to see them tour together.Wherever Obama stands in the history of great presidents, it will be a very long time before we do better than him going forward.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@theseantcollins #therebutforthegraceofsquadgoi?@theseantcollins #squadcautionarytales?Over 200,000 people have died in Syria in the past 4.5 years. That's a Paris attack EVERY SINGLE DAY. That's what refugees are fleeing.
