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....

They appear barmy from a distance, but scratch beneath the surface and they're absolutely terrifying

"What if a no deal Brexit caused job losses?"

"It'd be worth it."

"What do you think of Corbyn?"

"Lynch him."

This is ideology at all costs.

They appear barmy from a distance, but scratch beneath the surface and they're absolutely terrifying.




Certain age, certain class and white - the demographics are certainly the same

Violence and disruption against abortion clinics at highest rates since 1999

Violence and disruption against abortion clinics in the US increased to its highest levels since the 1990s last year, a report by the National Abortion Federation has found.

The increase in violence was attributed, at least in part, to president Donald Trump and his administration’s rhetoric.

The report noted a significant increase in obstruction, vandalism, and trespassing, with 1,135 incidents of trespassing recorded in 2018 - the most since the NAF began tracking the crime in 1999.

There were also 3,038 instances of obstruction, a 78 per cent increase compared to the previous year, and nearly 100,000 instances of picketing.

“Anti-choice individuals and groups have been emboldened by the rhetoric of president Trump, vice president Pence, and other elected officials and we are seeing this play out in more instances of activities meant to intimidate abortion providers and disrupt patient services,” said Dr Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, who serves as interim president and CEO of NAF.

'This Is a Battle to the Death': Dave Hayes Says Trump Will Soon Execute His Political Enemies

“I’m here to tell you,” he said, “these people are going to face prosecution, they’re going to face serious jail time, and some of them will face the death penalty. There is no other way forward … Trump declared war against them, and they know that they are facing life in prison or possibly a death sentence.”

“This is a winner-take-all game, and Trump is either going to prosecute them and put every one of them in jail and probably have a lot of them executed, or they are going to come after him and kill his family,” said Hayes.

“This is a battle to the death,” he continued. “There can be no clemency, there can be no deals, and there can be not much mercy.”

I know it easy to ignore these nutters.. but they are out there and they are listened to, and if we look at this in a critical way one might suggest there are some elements of scene setting for the base...

Hehe. Unfair advantage or what?



FACT!

Trump Implies He Trusts North Korea's Kim More Than His Own People

President Donald Trump seemed to contradict his national security adviser Saturday, claiming he was unbothered by North Korea’s recent missile tests essentially because he trusts dictator Kim Jong Un. In a tweet while he was in Japan, Trump also espoused a view that is at odds with his host country. “North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me.”

Trump wants to be a totalitarian leader like Kim. Of course he believes him, he desperately wants to be part of the strong men club.

Forced to give birth at 14, her Christian fundamentalist family treated her baby as a 'curse'

“I was raised being told I’d never see Heaven, and was going directly to hell for being born out of wedlock at a young age. All the other youth knew it. When the Pastor preached about the horrors of what happened in Hell, I would sit in the pew pale and full of horror. I developed eating problems and was diagnosed with stomach ulcers at age 8 (received no treatment of course after diagnoses. Was a common theme for the bastard child.) All I could think about was I was destined to go to this awful place where worms would eat me alive for all eternity. I was over run with anxiety. I would wake up every morning thinking about how I was getting closer and closer to the day I’d never see my family again and the devil would take me.”

As Rinlian grew older, the social stigma that resulted from her mother’s pregnancy was unescapable. Her mere existence was a “bad influence” on other children, causing their parents to forbid their children to associate with her.
