#45Lies is a national action campaign to UNnormalize the president’s dangerous and persistent assault on the truth before the national election. Disinformation is a key to fascism, and we, the makers and children of hip hop culture, just ain’t havin it.
I’ve posted this 45 second video in response to this SPECIFIC lie:
“We stand in solidarity with LGBTQ people who live in countries that punish, jail or execute individuals based upon sexual orientation.” -Spray Tan, addressing the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly
We know better, so we SAY as such in defense of an honest public record. In the spirit of democracy and inclusion, I invite @gyamazawa @benngood, @sagefrancissfr @gwatsky and @taalamacey to also participate in this campaign.
Find a lie that targets our community. Make a 45 second video that responds to that lie. Use “Impeach the President” as a sonic backdrop. Post your video, and invite more people to do the same. Find more info at @45lies2020. Democracy is ours to keep.
Thanks to Jon Berardi for the track. @alejandrokrispin for the studio.
And @bamuthi360 for makin this whole campaign happen.
