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....

Watch this video of Biden going off on the Reagan S. Africa policy - tis a splendid thing!


Ladies and Gentleman the next President of the US, who does condemn supremacy.

Condemning white nationalism and supremacy is something he can never do

Think about it. Trump is the biggest fucking white supremacist in America. He always has been. He sees nothing wrong in being a racist or dividing the country on the lines of hate. He revels in the basest of bigotries and tropes. He is an intolerant, discriminatory, extreme, illiberal, narrow-minded narcissist. He is a morality and ethic free zone. He is as corrupt as he is unscrupulous. He is a cheating, crooked, dirty dealing malcontent, whose soul has been poisoned beyond repair by his wilful hate filled world view. All of these things he has in common with those he was asked to condemn at the debate.

To condemn the Proud Boys, or the Boogaloo’s, or the KKK, or the various militias, or the mass shooters who have already responded to his rhetoric in the deadliest of ways, is to condemn himself. They are him. He is them. Ugh.

It's not George Orwell writing the script any more. It's Lewis bloody Carroll.


This ludicrous, preening popinjay literally withdrew Brexit 'Party' candidates from Tory-winnable constituencies in order to get *exactly* this treaty signed in the first place. It's not George Orwell writing the script any more. It's Lewis bloody Carroll.

The “oven ready deal” was an international treaty — for the EU Commission, that is like the Bible.

Whilst the EU always acts in bad faith, all they are doing today is asking Boris to keep his promises.

It should never have been signed in the first place. twitter.com/bbckatyaadler/…

Further and further we go down the right wing rabbit hole of horror. Farrage literally voted for this in the EU Parliament.
There is no end in sight

BREAKING: Donald Trump's secret debate tape revealed.

[Speculation got a little out of hand — we were just monkeying around]

Steve Schmidt masterful take down of Trump's entire debate performance

"What this was tonight was a disgrace. It was a national humiliation. You saw a president who was unhinged, lying, sweaty, dishevelled, angry, petulant, and most important of all, completely incapable of making any type of argument about why he should have four more years. He appeared to be crazy most of the debate."

The biggest lead in any Presidential era!

a deliberate mugging of America's democratic process

This is the essential point. It was a deliberate mugging of America's democratic process orchestrated by a man heavily indebted to unidentified creditors and determined - for whatever reason - to take the country down with him.

The problem with the “ it was all a shitshow “ take on the #Debates2020 is that it ignores the real possibility it was a deliberate attempt to undermine democratic process. If you make everyone believe it’s pointless to listen/ vote / count when you are trailing - it’s job done.

Emphasis mine

Of course it was a shitshow. Trump made sure of that. But I do not think it will have the effect he was hoping for. With people engaging in the election a month out, if anything it will make people who see Trump for what he is even more determined to turn out and stand up to the fascist bully. Particularly female voters - bar the cult of course! He represents everything we loathe about toxic masculinity.

Graphic mine

The Best Biden Lines of the Debate

“Will you shut up, man?”

“That was really a productive segment, wasn’t it? Keep yappin’, man.”

“You are the worst president that America has ever had”

“The fact is that everything he’s saying so far is simply a lie. I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he a liar”

“It’s hard to get any word in with this clown – excuse me, this person”

“President Trump wouldn’t know a suburb unless he took a wrong turn.”

‘‘It is what it is, because you are who you are”

"He's Putin's puppy"

“Maybe you can inject some bleach into your arm, that would take care of it.”

“This isn’t about his family or my family, It’s about your family.”


Anyone convinced that their views are infallible should be automatically disbarred from office.

Exactly this. There is a very definite light at the end of the tunnel for you. We in the UK are stuck with another 4 years of the bluster, lies and bollocks of the far right, who refuse to back down on anything, no matter how badly they have fucked up.

Oh Conservatives, just want to point out you are a fascist if...

…you still plan to vote for and speak for Trump after watching that debate. Never mind the shit show awfulness of his performance, never mind his lies, distortions and bollocks, his disrespect to the American people and the heart wrenching moment of his dismissal of Biden's dead son. Never mind his constant belligerent interruption and his petulant demeanour. All of that was going to be a given. But when he spoke directly to the Nazi far right white supremacist Proud Boys and told them to stand by they heard him loud and clear and proudly (they have already produced insignia for their nonsense faux uniforms, - stand back, stand by), and when he said that his supporters should protect the polls on election day, he was calling to arms far right fascistic militias onto the streets of America to break democracy, all to protect his lying tax evading grifting orange lard arse.

So, at this point, after what we witnessed last night, if you still plan to support this monster, you are a fascist. Period. And that includes every single republican up and down ticket all across America who does not come out immediately to condemn this call to fascist arms. Although to be fair, maybe they are happy little fascists, maybe for a section of the population Trump is exactly who they are. You are known by the company you keep, after all.

Obama addresses voters in Biden campaign video released on The Shade Room

In the video, which has been shared with PBS before its release on The Shade Room, Mr Obama urges the US public to vote as early as possible for Mr Biden.

“As you know, the election is coming up, and I’ve got just one word for you: vote,” the former president says. “Actually, I’ve got two: vote early.”

Without mentioning president Donald Trump by name, Mr Obama then adds: “Right now, from the White House on down, folks are working to keep people from voting, especially communities of colour.
