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 believe in the self-sacrifice of the many for the enrichment of a few

Since Reagan and Thatcher in the 80’s introduced to the world the ‘there is no such thing as society’ style we have been witness to the disintegration of any framework of morals and ethics that Conservatives may have once had. At this juncture, the Conservative blueprint for governance is cruelty and malice as the whole point for profit, for them. Herd immunity or not locking down early enough or opening up to early are decisions being made by Conservatives in both our lands which have led to us leading the world in per capita death toll. When they make the decisions they make, they are putting monetary advantage over the lives of citizens. It beggar’s belief how these people can put a price on a raising death toll, for power and profit, but if they don’t believe in society we can see why they would not give a shit about vulnerable people dying. They have been chipping away for the last 45 years at our fundamental rights living in a free and modern democracy. They do not believe in human rights. They believe in the self-sacrifice of the many for the enrichment of a few. We have to stop letting them get away with it.

Strongmen are the Weakmen of the world when shit gets real


Graphic mine

You can’t gaslight a pandemic, but you can gaslight the fucking idiots who still think your shit doesn’t stink. You can wind them up so much that they will literally cough in the face of someone because they are wearing a face mask, that they will protest health care workers, cause, why not? They will stand in defiance of the facts and blame it all on the ‘enemy’, risking their health and life to own the libs. And the saddest part of it all is that the strongmen during this crisis have demonstrated that while they are happy to use their sycophants for their own purposes, they also expect them to be willing to die to meet their needs.

Congressman Ami Bera said last week ‘’You can’t control a virus. You can only control how you respond to it.” And good grief, across the world strongmen have proven that when the shit hits the fan they are utterly incompetent in managing a crisis. All of them. Every single one has failed in their duties to their citizens.

Weakmen indeed.

And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate...



Now I am not saying that Trump is the anti-Christ, but it sure seems that his supporters think so. Cause as the bible says (you know the one that the religious right don’t read) ‘Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.

Trump doesn’t have to declare himself God. He has supporters who will do it for him. It is staggeringly fucked up on so many levels. Trump the moronic, nasty, orange shit face, incompetent monster as the new messiah?

The righties conundrum today.



How they are defending this with a straight face is beyond me. I mean come on, however tone deaf they are to the public they most know how ridiculous they all sound. And thanks to all of them talking such complete shite and twisting the rules so out of shape that they are about to break in two, lock down is over. The posturizing pouting when others broke the rules means they do not have a leg to stand on as they try and protect Cummings and quite rightly the public is just going to tell them to fuck right off about obeying any future rules.

'Let them play golf'



Sad thing is he will never see that playing golf in such a time of misery is really not on. Just crass, never mind the optics. 100K dead on his watch, and he plays golf while they die. His is a horror show.

Emoluments clause anyone?

Trump Demanded Churches Re-Open After Polls Found 'Staggering Decline' in Support From Christian

Conservatives

Declaring there is “alarm inside his campaign,” Politico cited a “person close to the campaign” who “described an April survey by the Public Religion Research Institute, which showed a double-digit decline in Trump’s favorability among white evangelicals (-11), white Catholics (-12) and white mainline protestants (-18) from the previous month, as ‘pretty concerning.'”

Double digit drops from the most dedicated members of Trump’s base must be alarming for the Trump re-election campaign and the President, and that led to his Friday demand to allow churches and other houses of worship to re-open.
----
“Part of the strategy Trump allies have adopted to protect his relationship with conservative Christians is to frame the novel coronavirus — and church closures in response to social distancing restrictions — as a threat to religious freedom,” Politico notes. “The president’s religious supporters routinely cite religious liberty as one of their top priorities and an area in which they believe the Trump administration has been exceptionally receptive.”

Of course everything he does is about trying to cling onto the levers of power. I am not sure why his advisers think that opening up places of worship to create hotspots and kill off parishioners will improve his declining favourability? Killing the christian right is a sure fire way to get their vote back. Right? *Rolls Eyes*

On the other hand those poll numbers are very pretty. Very pretty indeed.

It is all in the maths...



All the faux outrage coming from the right need to be reminded every single day that they actively support a white supremacist. A Biden gaffe, is just that, a gaffe. Joe Biden is not a racist, he is not a nazi and he will not ask anyone to drink bleach. That is all anyone needs to know!

We will infect each other on the beaches...



Cause of course Covid goes away when the sun comes out. 👀

Oh, wait..



This. All of this. And duck.

Of course Cummings SHOULD resign, but he won't

Against all the actual rules when Cummings and his missus came down with Covid, rather than locking down their household and quarantining in place, they hopped into the car and drove 270 miles so her elderly parents could take care of the child while they were ill. Not in the spirit or in the letter of the lockdown rules, however they will try and spin it now they have been caught with their pants down.

In another era there would not even be a question. This should be resign or be sacked situation for the most senior official in Downing Street. BUT he isn't going to resign and BoJo is not going to sack him. They are arrogant, they are entitled, they are privileged and they do not think that the rules apply to them. Even when they are the ones who wrote the rules. They do not care what we think. They do not care how we feel. They care only for power, privilege and profit and as they sit with an 80 seat majority in the House of Commons they believe they are untouchable, and they are probably right. So, IMO Cummings will not be leaving number 10. Resigning would be the right thing to do, so of course he is not doing that.
