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....

Republican lawmaker: Reducing carbon emissions will kill all the trees and plants



A Republican lawmaker in Colorado believes that environmental measures to reduce carbon emissions will kill off plant life. During during a talk radio appearance last week, state Sen. Jerry Sonnenberg explained why he opposed efforts to curb the emission of greenhouse gases by taxing them.

“So, you know, when we talk about carbon dioxide and those type of things, actually, those are important to agriculture and to the balance of nature,” he explained. “Trees and plants use carbon dioxide to create oxygen. It’s part of their process. And it’s nature’s way to make things work. So I guess my argument to those enviros that want less carbon is, ‘Here, you want to kill all the trees and plants.'”

Anna Soubry (British MP) receives messages calling for her to be hanged as a traitor...

Anna Soubry, one of the 11 Conservative MPs who defied government whips this week when the government suffered its first Commons defeat over Brexit, has received multiple messages saying she should be hanged as a traitor.

Messages received by Soubry’s office – usually seen first by her parliamentary staff – also feature abuse, with one Facebook message saying: “Go hang yourself slag.”

It follows death threats to Dominic Grieve, the former attorney general, who drew up the amendment to the EU withdrawal bill that passed on Wednesday by 309 votes to 305, ensuring MPs must have a final vote on any Brexit deal.

------------------------

One, from a man in Tonbridge, Kent – about 150 miles from Soubry’s Broxtow constituency – read: “You deserve to be HUNG for your attack on our democracy yesterday. WE VOTED OUT! OUT! OUT!” The writer, who gave his full address and telephone number, ended the email: “MAY YOU BURN IN HELL FOR ETERNITY.”

Our stiff upper lip has been lost in a loud noise of nasty racist. Hang 'em high cause if you do not believe in the cause you are a traitor. All my adult life I felt so fortunate to be live where I live and be from my generation. Now I weep, and am fucking furious. Wanker Nazi bastards need to fuck the right off.

Time for remainers to this shit up and let these low knowledge fuckers know they cannot get away with this shit.

Only slightly cross......

Last year Jo Cox (A British MP) was murdered by these muttering fanatic fools. Call for a hanging right now? Someone is going to try and pull this shit. Because that is what right wingers do.

I end where I started. Where the fuck is our stiff upper lip? Difference of opinion is not treachery. Unless you are a nazi, innit?

Incredible obituary of man who served in WW2, married his husband and changed his name goes viral



There is so much to marvel at here. The involvement in the Normandy landings, the fact that Hodges was one of the first British men to enter Belsen during the liberation and his marrying the love of his life in 2005 when same-sex marriage was finally legalised all add up to something truly remarkable.

My Great Uncle Tommy was also one of the first to enter Belsen. He slept with the light on until the day he died. Bill rocks, or rocked!

RWNJ Black Pastor: Blacks Who Didnt Vote For Roy Moore Do Not Believe In God (AUDIO)

But to hear one of the nation’s most prominent and most rabid black conservatives talk, it would have turned out differently if Alabama’s black voters really believed in God.

Even by religious right standards, Jesse Lee Peterson is a loathsome character. So loathsome, in fact, that it’s tempting to wonder if he’s a caricature. This is a man who thinks business owners ought to be able to turn people away on account of race, believes Trump is a shining example of a “real man,” and thinks Democrats weren’t sincere in praying for Steve Scalise’s recovery because they were supposedly praying to the devil.

But Peterson may have outdone himself during his post mortem on the Alabama special Senate election–particularly the fact that a staggering 96 percent of blacks cast their votes for Jones.
------------------
To his mind, numerous polls showing 80 percent of blacks believe in God are bogus. Why?


“I’m here as a black American to tell you that they’re lying. They do not believe in God. They do not. If they believed in God, they would have clear minds. They would have sound minds. They would have godly values that guides them. They would live on the side of righteousness. Black Americans are the most brainwashed, dumbed-down, demoralized, corrupt people that I’ve ever heard of or met in my entire life. They call good evil and evil good.”

He went on to say that no true “son or daughter of God” could support a Democrat. He loudly asked Alabama’s blacks, “How can you be of good, of God, of truth, of love and vote for a man such as Doug Jones or even Barack Hussein Obama?” After all, Jones, like Obama, is pro-choice and supports marriage equality. Any black Alabamian who voted for Jones and says they don’t support abortion or marriage equality “cannot be honest about being of their father, the devil.”

National Embarrassment Don Jr. Somehow Blames Obama For His Dad Appointing The FCC Head



Donald Trump Jr. – arguably the most idiotic person on the planet – slammed President Obama for rolling back net neutrality on the Internet by appointing Ajit Pai as FCC Chairman, who actually made the decision.
This is what Jr. had to say on the subject:




What he’s really saying is that he himself had no idea what net neutrality was prior to a week ago, and he still doesn’t.

Here’s the problem: it was his equally stupid father who appointed Pai to the position, not Obama.

The first lawsuit to save net neutrality was announced minutes after the FCC voted to repeal it

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has repealed net neutrality, after a vote that split along party lines. Already, multiple state attorneys general have announced they will sue to save it.

Minutes after the FCC vote, New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman announced his intent to lead a multi-state lawsuit to “stop illegal rollback of net neutrality.”

“The FCC’s vote to rip apart net neutrality is a blow to New York consumers, and to everyone who cares about a free and open internet,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “The FCC just gave Big Telecom an early Christmas present, by giving internet service providers yet another way to put corporate profits over consumers. Today’s rollback will give ISPs new ways to control what we see, what we do, and what we say online.”

Boxing champion awaits deportation after fighting for England six times



A boxing champion who has represented England six times has been arrested and locked in an immigration detention centre, pending deportation to Nigeria, a country that has said it won’t allow him to live there as he is not a citizen.

Kelvin Fawaz, London’s current middleweight boxing champion, has been in the UK for 15 years, since he was a child. He is a gifted amateur boxer whom Team GB wanted to represent Britain in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, writing twice to the Home Office on his behalf.

Fawaz realised his talent despite, as a child, being brought from his home in Nigeria to the UK where he was abandoned and forced into domestic slavery. He has not been allowed to take up a place on Team GB because the Home Office has repeatedly refused to issue him a work visa. Although the Nigerian government has rejected his applications for a passport and he holds no other, his application to be considered stateless has been rejected by the government.
