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....

Words to live by

Ginsberg has liver cancer and the whole world sucks

87 years old and undergoing chemo in a country that is a petri dish for covid. She says 'I have often said I would remain a member of the court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that.' Hurrah! But, we all need prayers or good thoughts - whatever floats your boat. Cause Ginsberg and SCOTUS.

There is one chance



i know I am preaching to the converted, but fucking hell my darling cousins across the pond, every day in every way you can #GOTV because the alternative is UNTHINKABLE.

The whole tree is rotten

Nothing they do says protecting life. They can never be allowed to claim pro life as a moral mantle

of complete and utter lying bollocks EVER again.



Just all of this and then on top of it - every time, in the future they try to claim to be the party of pro life, they need to be reminded of what they did during Covid-19. Don't wear masks, get the kids back to school, stop financial aid to the unemployed, open up the economy, don't provide effective PPE for healthcare workers etc et al. ALL of it is anti-life. ALL of it has led to humongous amount of unnecessary infections and deaths from the virus and excess deaths in the tens of thousands- hell the far right wing hellscape of Florida has more recorded infections a day than the whole of Europe... Pro life my lily white Irish arse.

So, the secret police have been deployed now

Just sweeping in and bundling people away seems like something a dictatorship would do. They really are not pretending anymore. The power kick Twitler gets from being overtly fascist is too much for him not to do. Of course, as he is an incompetent horror show with his sidelick Barr matching him in being a disgusting, democracy killing human being, the secret police will end up being as big a fuck up as anything else these greasy far right nasty touch. Just another way that this administration is undermining America, not just at home but abroad. I mean seriously, when your secret security forces bundles people into the back of vans, that is kidnap, it is not following due process, so good luck America in ever trying to call out human rights abuses anywhere else, for the foreseeable future.


In Trumps head - secret police be like get them libs...

The juxtaposition be like...

Sometimes images can say more that a thousand words...

The All New Mrs America


Graphic mine

Trump is Schlafly's wet dream of a President. BTW if you have not checked out Mrs America yet YOU NEED TO!!! Caps shouting to emphasis how brilliant it is! It would be a cautionary tale, but it is too late for that! Heh.

All of the ironies, again...



I am not posting the video cause, nope. However I can confirm that is gives a horribly distorted image of Biden's policies to save America, and trying to reinforce these messages by using actual footage of Trumps America burning down - he owns all of it. In your face bollocks and bluster. They have no shame and you really could not make this shit up.

I am not sure we should call it an unravelling...

Beans, statues and the confederacy as symbols of the race and culture war that Trump is desperately trying to stoke, while for the average person out there, coping in an out of control pandemic - economically and safety wise is pretty much all they have time for and Trump is not in any way reflecting the priories of the general public. Surprise! People are saying he has lost it, but surely the point is that he never had it? I know that I have written many an OP delighting in the Madness of King Trump as he seemed to go all in George III but I am no longer of the opinion that what we are witness to is an unravelling, I think it is more akin to an unveiling. The awful that gets more and more awful, and hell what a week it has been on so many levels of awful, is Trump, when under ever increasing pressure, showing the world exactly who he is. This is Trump - the not very effective smoke and mirrors of the last 3 years have been cracked asunder by 2020 - and the gibbering, nasty race war stoking, incoherent, incompetent fucker standing before us is the psychopath that is Trump. He is not unravelling, he is exposing the very real he, in a way that makes it impossible for anyone, unless you are part of the unrepentant racist underbelly of MAGA, to ignore exactly what he is. This is he.
