About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Trump At Rally: I’m Smarter And Richer Than My Critics

Newsweek reports:

President Donald Trump made a few boasts about himself during his campaign rally in Michigan while taking a swipe at the liberal “elites” he believed were trying to undermine him.

“You know, I always hear ‘the elite, the elite,'” Trump told the crowd. “I have a better education than them, I’m smarter than them, I went to the best schools, they didn’t.

“I have a much more beautiful house, much more beautiful apartment, much more beautiful everything. And I’m president and they’re not, right?” And then they say ‘the elite, the elite.'”

Maybe a tad optimistic but good oh!

The Juxtaposition of living in 2019...



I am going to suggest that there are very few DUers who can not empathise with this sentiment?

I just saw a nazi on the tube



Causation? Correlation? One thing for sure - not a Coincidence...



I am sure that Trump thinks that is a good job, well done...... heh

In February I made and posted an infographic... To be clear

Hateful





No-one should have to put up with this in a place of work. Just horrible.

The Trump era in a Nutshell



Heh

The sickness of whiteness

Has anyone else listened to the latest Chris Hayes podcast? You need to. Interesting - very much so. Concerning - even more so. Gist is that life expectancy has dropped for the last 3 years amongst white men and it explores the intersection between self interest and being a Trump supporter. Looks like they will vote against their own self interests, even when it is cutting their life expectancy to hold unto the idea of whiteness. The Q is what can the offer be from the democrats in 2020 when they know they can get a better deal for themselves if they vote differently, but they are so embedded to the Trump philosophy this takes precedence. What offer can you make them in those circumstances, because you cannot give them what they most want = white is right, brown is dangerous.

Podcast is Why is this happening with Chris Hayes - Dying of Whiteness with Jonathan Metzl. Really worth a listen to get to the heart of Trump supporters.

Call it the 'Barr letter' until we know more...
