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....

They love racism, hating and violence much more than they are capable of loving America

As Trumplethinskin gets progressively more frantic, he becomes ever more shrill, absurd, and inexplicable. His buffoonish and tyrannical behaviour interspersed with puerile whingeing and melodramatic outbursts only helps with the contrasts that the Biden team are making very well. Every time the Fascist in Chief opens his gob of nasty, he reinforces how Biden is so much more cogent, calm, centred, responsible and competent than he.

Emperor Covid’s determination to hold super-spreader MAGA events during a pandemic, and damn the so very deadly consequences, just helps Biden's low-key style look reasonable and adult – because other than the cult base grownups know that being sensible and cautious is the right approach to life in 2020.

As Captain Chaos rants about AMERICA BURNING DOWN if he's not able to steal another 4 years in the White House this just makes Biden's 'rebuild better' campaign even more appealing to the average adult, who knows that they see America burning right now and do not trust (as the polls say) that he is the one who can fix the toxic tensions he has created. For many, having to had endure Trump's four plus years of fevered, delusional sociopathy and grifting, Biden clearly offers respite from the bedlam and anarchy that Individual one has wrought - and more importantly a return to reason, safety, security and the metal wellbeing and healing of a nation.

At this point, when the choices are so stark, any that still choose to go down the path of the narcissistic, despotic, burn the world to the ground chaos of this arsehole in chief means they are lost to reason, probably for good, and they love racism, hating and violence much more than they are capable of loving America.

Anti-Immigrant [Far Right] Norwegian Lawmaker Nominates Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

President Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, an anti-immigration member of the Norwegian parliament.

Tybring-Gjedde, who is a notorious anti-immigration hardliner who has made a series of inflammatory statements on the subject, explained his nomination to Fox News in an interview:

The nomination submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, lauded Trump for his efforts toward resolving protracted conflicts worldwide.

For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News in an exclusive interview.

Emphasis mine for lolz

The stench of the far right pervades everywhere at the moment. Nominating is one thing, not sure the committee will see Trump as a virtuous lover and promoter of world peace somehow, cause us is the exact opposite of this. I mean if you are going to nominate the arsehole at least do it with something that could be perceived as plausible, not the fuck up that is the middle east 'peace deal'.

It is nearly 3am, the ambulance just left and I can't even

The SO got out of bed and fell over. He is too weak to help himself up from the floor and I am not strong enough to do it on my own. We spent an hour trying to get him up on our own, but it was not going to happen. The NHS is a marvellous thing. I phoned 999 and explained the situation, they said it would be 2 hours. I further explained the multiple complex issues and the door bell rang 15 minutes later. They got him back into bed, when I could not and then they left.

The NHS is a marvellous thing, but I cannot even. When you see your SO so weak he cannot pull himself back onto the bed what do you do with that? I don't know what to do.

Biden raised v Trump raised



Tells us everything we need to know, as if we didn't know it already...

Robert Reich: The next time you hear Trump & enablers tout the economy...

The next time you hear Trump and his enablers tout the economy, here are a few facts you can remind them of.

Nothing will get better with him in charge. Things will only worsen, and spouting utter nonsense about the economy is not going to cut it. Everyone knows someone who has been battered hard by 2020, even if they have not been directly effected economically or health wise. Living through a pandemic is hard work, living through a pandemic when the supposed leader of the free world thinks he can gas light his way out of it makes it much harder. These numbers need to be shoved in the face of every MAGA Trump supporting covidiot out there.

It was always going to be a no deal Brexit

https://twitter.com/mrjamesob/status/1303232787311403010
This is *precisely* the corrupting conduct that ‘culture war’ claptrap is designed to excuse. The Prime Minister lied to the country & made every Conservative MP complicit but it will be ignored because blah ‘woke’ blah ‘Rule Britannia’ blah ‘fish’.


At this point not only it highly unlikely that a trade deal will be reached, they want to breach the withdrawal agreement - gotta love a far right Brexiteer government that think they can rip up legally binding international treaties because they want their empire back (the rule Britannia nonsense being a perfect example of this). NO DEAL in every sense.
They were never serious about getting a trade deal, and the only reason they negotiated the withdrawal agreement was because Parliament had tied their hands. So rip it up, tell the EU to do one... they are all ridiculous and they will not be the ones to pay the price as they wallow in their privilege.
Oh and a hard border in Ireland in 3...2...1. Dissidents causing havoc 5 minutes later. The Good Friday Agreement cannot be upheld if they rip up the withdrawal agreement, even as they spout their right wing lies and say they are doing it to protect the agreement, these English nationalists in downing street could not give a shit about Ulster.

The Guardian laid out yesterday what kind of sanctions we may face if they go ahead with their reckless idiocy

EU has powers to punish UK if it breaches Brexit treaty, experts warn
A dispute would trigger a specific legal process ending in the Luxembourg court – and if the UK was found to have breached the international treaty it signed in January, the EU has powers to punish the country.

The court can impose a heavy fine on the UK, suspend part of the withdrawal agreement, launch trade wars and impose tariffs or even sanctions on British exports.

Good times...

UK right now. Struggling to stay afloat, but almost certainly going to sink...

You do not have to be a Nazi to be a Fascist in America today...


Graphic mine

All Nazi’s are fascists but not all fascists are Nazi’s. The face of fascism in America today does hold some parallels to Germany 1930s – but that is not the totality of American fascism by any means. American fascism relies on people going nazi be nazi (including me) and then they can point to Hitlers Horror Show and say ‘what bollocks, we look nothing like that, so of course we are not fascists’… yeah right, they are on the start of the journey which will lead to them being exactly like that, but it is a narrative that works with some who see fascists as swastika wearing, goose stepping mass murderers. One must remember that in the 20th Century fascism as a word came out of Italy, rather than Germany, and modern-day fascism is not just this narrowly defined Nazi version, although it is part of it. If these modern day American fascists get their way ‘’Soon it won’t only be black Americans who can’t breathe, but by then the white Americans turning a blind eye and deaf ear to what is happening may have found that they, too, are in a chokehold, and there is no one with enough breath left to speak for them.’’ Sarah Churchill.

Marriam Webster defines fascism as a 1. political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition, and; 2. a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control.

Based on these definitions, it is not difficult to identify those movements who make up the coalition of modern-day fascists in America. A hotch potch of groupings who have some things in common:

They hate minority communities.
They believe in their supremacy over minority communities.
They will happily give up some of their freedoms if it means minority communities are forced to give up MORE freedoms than them.
They cling to patriarchal and authoritarian power structures.
They conflate images of national identity with national supremacy.
They blindly worship the ‘dear leader’ and spread his propaganda.
They support violent rhetoric and actions for political ends.
They would cede democracy to give more power to their goals of suppression of other.

I could go on but I think you get the point. Nazi be Nazi. Nazi be Fascist. Fascist be Fascist. Anyone who supports Trump at this time are embracing a uniquely American fascism and one might suggest that MAGA, with the insignia and the rallies and blustering rants of a wannabee despot, can be reasonably described as an American symbol of fascism for the 21st Century.

Just sayin'

The nasty being spouted everyday - It is all one big distraction tactic



The people who still support him need to be reminded everyday how many Americans have died at his hands...

This must be someone taking the piss, but I so want it to be a real thing because I cannot see...

...a better example of the utter stupidity of MAGA ever presenting itself again...

Raw Story headline Face masks with a gun pocket is the new right-wing couture



The gun pocket on your face mask can help show people that you not only believe the coronavirus is real and care about others, but you’re also willing to shoot anyone who bothers you about it.

While bullets may not block COVID-19, putting a weapon that close to your head certainly can show the world you’re not afraid to die.

The pocket also allows a wearer to choose whatever fabric they wish, for those seeking stylish options like a Trump campaign logo, NRA seal or camouflage for quick stops before a hunting trip.

This can't be real. But then again you never know with a MAGA. Maybe they are looking to win big at the Darwin Awards.

The contempt he has for America and Americans know no bounds...

Waking up to headline after headline about Trump ratcheting up his white nationalist, white power politics, and some about his overt racism before his Presidency, one thing is clear, he is not trying to hide his white supremacist beliefs anymore. This not just xenophobia or bigotry – this is a full on in your face call to a deluded base of confederate hangovers who need to have someone else to hate, because the land of free has been pretty shit for them in so many ways…even though they refuse to look outside of this hate to see that there could be a better way. Blinded by hate of other you see.

But on a morning when leaks from the Cohen book tell us that Trump said Obama got into Harvard Law because of 'fucking affirmative action and 'accused Nelson Mandela of turning South Africa into a 'shithole' - because of course he did (I won’t get into the golden showers cause *shudder*)

On a weekend when the racist in chief cancels racial sensitivity training for all federal employees because it is 'un-American propaganda' with classes on 'critical race theory' and 'white privilege' as a 'sickness in our country'. Of course the best way to tackle systemic racism is to support people in recognising their micro aggressions in the work place, and he certainly would not want to create a diverse workforce where all are talents are recognised – hater in chief can’t have that.

In a week when he went to Kenosha and said that protesters were domestic terrorists, while not condemning the actual Trump adorer far right domestic terrorist who shot dead two protestors – it was always going to be this way.

So, the question comes to this. At this point can anyone who still supports him claim to not be racist? He is aggressively slapping his racism around the face of America. His divisive and hate filled rhetoric is emboldened by a time of chaos due to the pandemic and economic collapse and he is filling the void left by his lack of leadership, to show all of us who he is - racist to the very core of his being. Right now – in this time – if people are still supporting him then, yep, racist be very very racist indeed. He has stripped away any excuses he gave voters in the past to support him, even though they may have been troubled by some of the language he used on race. He is now so overt in promoting a race war that only a racist could possibly vote for him. MAGA is the new KKK and needs to be booted into history in November.
