Don't allow racists to reframe #TakeAKnee as being a debate about anthem & flag. It's a protest of police brutality & racism... 🙄
Retweeted by Matt SoarDear @NFL Players. Please don't allow this man to strike an ounce of fear in your heart. Take a knee. Raise a fist. Take a seat. DO IT

Get this - the American Medical Association opposes the Graham-Cassidy “health care” bill because it violates “first, do no harm.”

And here's how people in Phoenix are reacting to the news of his pardon (spoiler alert: they're not thrilled!) https://t.co/QpKfo35CvJ
Retweeted by Matt SoarSo, yeah, that's who Trump just pardoned. You can read all our coverage of Arpaio over the years here: https://t.co/7JkmOEVPWW
Retweeted by Matt SoarHis office was responsible for countless fiascos like this botched SWAT raid, where deputies set a puppy on fire. https://t.co/Gb7MS5zare
Retweeted by Matt SoarBecause this is the Old West or something, he had a "Sheriff's Posse." One member got arrested on child porn charges https://t.co/FJosPbsdke
Retweeted by Matt SoarHe also paid millions to settle lawsuits like this one, where deputies stood by as an inmate was brutally beaten. https://t.co/WppUM1vPOs
Retweeted by Matt SoarBy 2015, his fondness for racial profiling had cost the county more $44 million. On top of, you know, ruining lives. https://t.co/zlLg6kCsUf
Retweeted by Matt SoarHe also tried to destroy some of the hard drives containing material that was supposed to be turned over the court. https://t.co/XKgR3SDWXd
Retweeted by Matt SoarHe also kept on profiling people, which is why he got charged with contempt of court (and was found to be guilty AF) https://t.co/PycurAtivk
Retweeted by Matt SoarSo naturally, he hired a PI to investigate the judge and his wife. https://t.co/e7Nf01R7vn
