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....

I don't even care if this is photo-shopped - it is too damn funny

You know what I just love about MEGXIT...🙄😖

The subconscious (and conscious) bias we have in the UK to other is still strong. Empire and the notion that we are somehow superior goes deep with a certain type of chap. You know the sort - they all voted for Bexit for a start.

I have done my very best to try and ignore ALL of this. If they want to bugger off and make their own way in the world then good luck to them. I don't blame them one bit. BUT every frigging time you turn on the radio we are confronted with yet another programme dedicated to what they are now calling a constitutional crisis - way to over egg the biscuit . Good grief. The vitriol and nasty that is all over the airwaves and in the papers fully and utterly reinforces that the media coverage they have to endure is not just tinged (and sometimes explicit) in racism, but fundamentally steeped in othering. A black woman at the heart of the establishment has been a challenge to the status quo that many have utterly failed to adapt to. And shame on them.

So this sums up the situation we are currently living in. A bunch of white middle aged privileged talking heads are talking to each about how their coverage of the Duchess of Sussex has not been racist while calling her ungrateful and uppity for not willing to put up with being called ungrateful and uppity, reassuring themselves all the while that there is no way they or their coverage has been racist. But the Sussex's are the ones with problem?

*Deep fucking sigh*

The one where Donald Trump had a book bag...

When free speech is a right wing bollocks used against the freedoms of everyone else...

I know, first amendment and all that, BUT constitutional permission to spout vile hatred against those they would suppress as they seek to destroy the democratic conventions of the constitution they use to justify their oppressive language (and actions), seems like something of an oxymoron to a Brit like me. Every time they open their gobs it is in bad faith. They no more believe in the constitution than in the man in the moon unless it suits their ends.

They play a canny game these haters of freedom. When they spew out their despicable rhetoric of division, they know they can get away with it. They have no need to justify or substantiate the content of their contemptible far right diatribes, rather they frame their arguments around the fact that the constitution gives them explicit permission to do so, so anyone who criticises them is an enemy of free speech or/and the State.

This works marvellously for them:

My graphic

The irony of using the constitution to try and destroy the constitution from within… but I know, I know… the 1st amendment and even if they don’t respect any part of the constitution ignoring their rights under it would mean being like those wankers I suppose. *Sigh*

They rely on a general lack of outrage as they screw everyone over

It is not the nutters that cheer them on they need to do the real damage, it is the 'I'm all right jack' crowd, that keep quiet in the face of such destruction of norms pf governance who give them the space and power that they need to destroy...

A lack of a point of view in these times of ours is a very dangerous thing indeed.

It is not elitist to look fascism in the face and reject it

On the ropes of 2020...

The Jenuis Who Seeks Re-election Be Like...

Ain't he the special one...proven by the fact that his Impeachment avoidance strategy is pure jenius...potentially starting world war 3 then running away from the consequences...but they cannot from run this. Of that I am sure. Heh

Look at the top pf the lorry as Trumps Toupee,,, Hehe

Terrorism police list Extinction Rebellion as extremist ideology

Counter-terrorism police placed the non-violent group Extinction Rebellion (XR) on a list of extremist ideologies that should be reported to the authorities running the Prevent programme, which aims to catch those at risk of committing atrocities, the Guardian has learned.

The climate emergency campaign group was included in a 12-page guide produced by counter-terrorism police in the south-east titled Safeguarding young people and adults from ideological extremism, which is marked as “official”.

XR featured alongside threats to national security such as neo-Nazi terrorism and a pro-terrorist Islamist group. The guide, aimed at police officers, government organisations and teachers who by law have to report concerns about radicalisation, was dated last November.


Boris's Britain...

They are literally 'dynastic' cult sheep cause they are allowed to be openly racist nasty again...

What I don't understand is, if you wanted to create the fourth reich... and one can only assume that this is the plan with these fuckers... why choose this family of utter dimwits.

I mean come on....If they feel they need to move to an authoritarian despotic regime because religious and racist bollocks, surely they could come up with something better than the Trumps to fulfil their nasty nazi dreams of white power?

Why on earth would they not choose a family with a stronger gene set and BRAINS...
Ivanka has no agency, she is a plastic barbie who has never spoken with anything but Trumps voice - what grown arsed woman does that?
The smug wankers that are the brothers have no chins - which tells you everything you need to know...
They all believe they are clever but they are so stupid that they believe because privilege bought them an education that this translates into intellectual superiority in comparison to the hoi polloi... fucking idiots.

Trump cultists would choose this family to be their dynastic heroes? There is only one explanation. Permission for in your face public hate has been granted for the first time in 40 years, and they want to cling onto it for the next 50 years, and in their white supremacist dreams eventually take us back a 100 years. They will literally give up democracy for this... Racist Nazi Zombie Fuckers...

Why bother having a revolution at all? Better to stick to Mad King George 3rd who at least had an excuse for being mad...
21st Century republicans, hankering after a 16th century mode of governance? Heh

Just saying...
