Stand up against the so-called "three percenters" and let's make this a thing

Now I don't really tweet, but I am starting to learn about it. Anyway, my allies and I are running a little project, and we've recently come to the defense of Deedra Abboud, a woman who wants to run against Jeff Flake for the Senate seat in Arizona. Her positions are the epitome of what it means to be a progressive but unfortunately, she has also run into a great deal of hate and opposition because she is a Muslim. It is tragic to see her be opposed and be told "no no no" not because of the political positions she has but because of the way she prays.

As I said, I'm not really good at tweeting and this is something by my partners, but let's get out there and like it. Retweet it. Spread the word. Support Deedra Abboud and if "three percenters" don't like it, then they can publicly disavow this character.

1. I don't have any problem with her being a Muslim...

...but as a political candidate, you don't have the luxury of ignoring how people will react. There are other States whose electorate wouldn't give this a second thought, but I'm not sure Arizona is one of them. Add to which, "the epitome of what it means to be a progressive" may appeal to you; how will it play there?
