Ugh. A Blue Lives Matter flag? Really? That symbol of police violence and white supremacy? There are ways to honor the fallen without catering to racism, sir.

This was in May. Are you intentionally being obtuse? No mention of the protests in your timeline, no sympathy for the victims of police brutality. But you celebrate a day that happened over a month ago, and with the thin blue line flag no less? And yes, it's a symbol of police brutality. Because the only time it's brought out is when the police victimize somebody.

Is there going to be a “fallen victims killed by police” day?

Isn’t this in May? But yes, behind our officers and for full reform, recognizing that my experience is not the experience all people of the united states get from our justice department and police officers. You want to do something for our local police...pay them better.

God bless

Prayers for their families.

Same for you and the family!!!

Will you hold Abbott accountable for his efforts at banana-republic dictatorship? If the GOP Convention and Texas Legislature doesn't vote to push for Abbott's impeachment due to violating the Texas Constitution with his rule-by-fiat executive orders, then there's no reason to vote Republican anymore.... #BananaRepublicDictator #ImpeachFidelAbbott #GovernorKaren #DemocratInDisguise #SpecialSessionNOW #NoContactTracingEver #DoNotComply #OpenTexasNOW

Celebrating freedom while we still have it,

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Next time it comes up for a Vote, I'm formally Requesting that Dan Patrick be ousted from office.
