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....

When the urge to mansplain is so strong...

When the urge to mansplain is so strong you feel the need to correct a woman you’ve never met about how her late husband would have felt.


Just mind blowing. Apart from anything else he is mansplaining as a way to try and convince random internet people that he is going to vote for an actual fascist in November, because the Democrat party is mean? All he has really done is gone for a twofer of racist and a patronising sexist wanker. Yay for him.

Stupid is stupid and karma is a bitch



Zero sympathy and he looks in the age range for a battle at the very least. He is responsible for the death of people in his state because of his far right ridiculous stance, so Covid have at it. I don't want anyone to die of course, but wishing a long covid seems perfectly splendid.

So the killing of Breonna Taylor was justified?

How many millions did they pay out to the family for a justified killing? Oh, 12 million. Why would they pay out without cause? Just fucking ridiculous. No justice, no peace. And no justice means that the security forces will rain down fire on protestors. Cause they can, cause fascism, and there is never justice in a fascist state unless of course you are one of the fascists. As Louisville police chief Robert Schroeder said the authorities would not tolerate any “Violence or destruction of property. We are prepared to meet any challenge we may face” Of course they won't stand back, they want the confederacy back. Emboldened fascists love cracking black skulls, oh and shooting black people in the back, oh and shooting them for breathing, oh an putting their knees on their necks until they die. And finally being a bunch of fucking cowardly wankers who are scared about policing by consent, because power and supremacy.
Let this horror show stop come November 3rd.

We have seen this game played before.


Graphic mine

Trump era 2020 is full on danger zone for democracy and the rule of law. We have seen this game played before. They think they have got enough control of all the various levers of power to go full on totalitarian. I reckon that they are underestimating the free will of the majority of the American people. They are going to do everything they can to ensure fascism wins through nefarious measures. But if history tells us anything at all is that fascism always fails in the end, but it needs to be stopped NOW, while we are in the danger zone, rather than if we enter the end zone... that will take much longer to fix, many more deaths and bloody violence on the streets, and all of that is exhausting to even think about.

Gilead is rubbing their fascist hands in glee



Got up early to take a walk across the city and took this photo



Walking is great mental therapy right now and this bombed out church was the reward for my walking 5 miles at pace!

LISTEN: Mourners sing 'Amazing Grace' outside the Supreme Court to celebrate Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Heartwarming videos were shared on social media on Friday night showing the spontaneous gathering at the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The large crowd, with many people wearing masks, sang the hymn “Amazing Grace.”

A moving moments as dozens join in to sing “Amazing Grace” on the steps of the Supreme Court.


What a lovely thing. Of course they are going to try and rail road through a nazi in about 2 seconds flat. One can only hope that enough of the republican senate recognises the writing on the wall and do the right thing.. heh. At least there is this:



Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham and Lisa Murkowski are all on record saying they would delay a nomination vote until after the election in an election year. Graham is already trying to walk that back, because of course he is.

HOWEVER in the words of the next President of the United States:

“In the coming days, we should focus on the loss of her justice and enduring legacy, but there is no doubt, let me be clear, that the voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider. This was the position of Republican Senate took in 2016, when there were almost 10 months to go before the election [and] that’s the position the United States Senate must take today.”

So as Moscow Mitch moves with a speed unexpected in a turtle, 2016 needs to shoved down these hypocritical fascists throats day in and day out. All over all the air waves, reminding repubs that people are not stupid, and although the fascist base might think this is OK, most people are fair minded. They have stolen 4 years, they have stolen the mental well being of the frigging world with their democracy stealing slow moving coup of the leader of the free world. They cannot be allowed to seat another woman hating nazi in the Supreme Court.

May she rest in power.



U.S. has expelled 8,800 migrant children under coronavirus rules

President Donald Trump’s administration has expelled about 8,800 unaccompanied migrant children intercepted at the U.S.-Mexico border since March 20 under rules seeking to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus in the United States, according to court documents filed Friday by the Justice Department.
---
Since then, U.S. officials have been quickly removing migrants, including unaccompanied minors, without standard immigration proceedings.

They really are fascist scum. They are sending CHILDREN on their own across the border - vulnerable to exploitation and worse, cause cruelty is their only point.

So a Republican judge dismisses County DA in the Derek Chauvin murder of George Floyd

The fix is in. Apparently they were 'sloppy' in gathering evidence because they went to see medical examiners without having independent witnesses present. Because of course they do that in their normal duties. Get the fuck out of here. They are playing the white supremacist game right now. I wonder who the new DA will be? Hhhhmmm. It is just right in your face ugly at this point.

Rallygoer: "Because there's no COVID. It's a fake pandemic. Created to destroy the USofA''👀

https://twitter.com/therecount/status/1304395448229212160
From Trump's rally in Freeland, MI, last night:

CNN's Jim Acosta: "Why are you not wearing your mask?"

Rallygoer: "Because there's no COVID. It's a fake pandemic. Created to destroy the United States of America."

It gets even worse.

The party (Trump) told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. (George Orwell, Big Brother) And oh boy the cultists have done this hook, line and sinker, denying a pandemic is pretty special with 200,000 dead, just because they worship at the altar of the Fuckwit in Chief... one would almost feel sorry for them if they weren't such racist fascist hate filled wankers.
