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....

A Republican lawmaker just made ominous shooting threat against protesting students



But the prize for Most Tone-Deaf Statement Following A Mass Shooting goes to Idaho State Representative Priscilla Giddings. The Idaho Republican Party is holding their state convention in Pocatello, and students from a nearby university decided to show up and demonstrate.

It seems Rep. Giddings handled the situation well on the ground. She engaged with the students, who were very peaceful, according to all accounts. She even took a photo with them.

When she got on Facebook to post the photo, however, the whole thing went sideways. She decided that this encounter with these young women just a day after a tragic mass shooting was the perfect time to, well, we’re not exactly sure what she thinks she’s accomplishing here.

Good grief - what is wrong with these people????

Michael Moore: I Will 'Surround The U.S. Capitol' With 'a Million Other People' to Stop Trump's...

... SCOTUS Confirmation

“I’ll join a million other people surrounding the United States Capitol,” Moore responded. “I will stand there. I will put my- Bill, let me tell you something. If this judge goes through, for at least the rest of our lives, it’s a right wing court. That’s it. It’s over.”

Flat Earthers: Australia is a fake country and its citizens are actors paid by NASA



As the New Zealand Herald points out, some Flat Earthers think the massive continent down under doesn’t exist. But what about those lovely Australians we all know and love? Actors, all of them. Who’s paying for this massive fraud? Why, NASA of course.

According to those who’ve done a little digging, the theory first originated in a Flat Earth Society internet forum back in 2006, but found new life in a now-deleted Facebook post by a woman named Shelley Floryd back in 2017

A summary of the theory is as follows: The concept of Australia was created by the British government as a cover-up for a genocide. The Brits allegedly shipped over 160,000 criminals into the middle of the ocean during the 18th Century and intentionally drowned them.

LOL. There is a certain level of twisted genius in that there lunacy!!!!!

Let's Not Get Too Hysterical About It, But THERE ARE LITERAL NAZIS AT DHS



Fuckin' weird, right? If you are not familiar with neo-Nazi lingo, the ADL explains it pretty succinctly. The "14 words" are a white supremacist/Nazi slogan that says "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." Scum of the earth Nazis really really really love that slogan.
-----------
Anyway, does this mean there are actual Nazis at DHS? Well, it's the Trump administration, so it's plausible. And we are able to see with our own eyes how DHS has been acting kinda Nazi ever since Donald Trump usurped power. Maybe whoever wrote that article is just an internet troll, since we know such folks were given preferential treatment in hiring when the Trumpers came to town. Maybe they are just OWNIN' THE LIBS.

Or maybe there are actual Nazis in DH

Too much? or too real?

THIS: Mass shootings show why we must stop pandering to white male fragility



There is nothing in men’s nature that obliges them to behave like this. The problem is not masculinity but misogyny. There are plenty of shy, lonely men living in their parents’ basements who have not taken up violent woman-hatred as a way to relax after work. There are plenty of worried, white, straight chaps nursing private anxieties about their place in the world who have somehow managed not to drink the crypto-fascist Kool-Aid, refreshing though it surely looks to anyone lost in the directionless desert of modern masculinity. Racism and misogyny are chosen. You don’t catch them like a cold; you catch them like you catch a train to somewhere dark and terrifying. And a great many men seem to have bought their ticket long ago.

Not all misogynists are violent, but most modern recruits to the diffuse male supremacist movement seem extremely comfortable with the spectacle of violence being done in their names. These are the people for whom a Hillary Clinton presidency truly would have been “just as bad” as a Trump regime that is doing everything it promised and more. These are the people for whom an administration bent on persecuting migrants and religious minorities, destroying the free press and tearing up the fabric of American democracy remains a fair price to pay so long as nobody has to say the words “Madam President”.

And yet, somehow, it is women who are being implored not to get angry in public, lest we make these men uncomfortable. It is people of colour who are being shamed for being insufficiently civil. It is liberals who are castigated for not showing enough empathy with those who long ago decided that basic respect for other human beings is “political correctness”, and it’s evil, and it must be rooted out at gunpoint. In times like these, a demand for civility is a demand for complicity. We must not allow our society to be held hostage to white male fragility any longer.

This needs to happen every single time....

Obliterate. Annihilate. Destroy

Fuck you very much





Is it just me or how fucking dare she? Protesting the very policies she was sure would not be as damaging as having Clinton for President. Spouting off in 2016 as she did, from a place of rich white privilege - knowing that whatever Trump did it would not impact on her pampered and privileged life.

We all KNEW what Trump would do as President - am I wrong to suggest that if you voted for him or against her, you do not now get too put your progressive hair shirt on to protest the fucking nasty we all KNEW was coming if he got elected?

Sending a night in jail ain't going to fix that shit. Fuck right off.

Insolent, Intransigent, Invidious and Irksome

I came across a list of glorious adjectives on the interwebs machine and whilst perusing the list I sat in awe and wonder at the many marvellous ways one could describe the cluster fuck that is Trump. In no particular order and with much glee one might suggest that he is at the VERY LEAST…

Bellicose, Bilious and Boorish
Calamitous and Defamatory
Execrable and Feckless
Histrionic, Hubristic, Incendiary and Insidious
Insolent, Intransigent, Invidious and Irksome
Jejune, Mendacious and Meretricious
Minatory, Nefarious, Noxious and Obtuse
Pernicious.
Pervasive, Petulant, Platitudinous and Querulous
Rebarbative and Recalcitrant
Risible, Serpentine and Strident
Turbulent and Turgid
Ubiquitous, Voluble and Voracious

Of course, there are many more that could be attributed to the man child. Enraged, Repulsive and Disturbed to name but a few.
Feel free to add to the list😊 Have at it.

Loans of over $1 Billion to Trump by SCOTUS justice Kennedy's son, but nothing to see here...



“Say hello to your boy,” Mr. Trump said. “Special guy.”

Mr. Trump was apparently referring to Justice Kennedy’s son, Justin. The younger Mr. Kennedy spent more than a decade at Deutsche Bank, eventually rising to become the bank’s global head of real estate capital markets, and he worked closely with Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer, according to two people with knowledge of his role.

During Mr. Kennedy’s tenure, Deutsche Bank became Mr. Trump’s most important lender, dispensing well over $1 billion in loans to him for the renovation and construction of skyscrapers in New York and Chicago at a time other mainstream banks were wary of doing business with him because of his troubled business history.
