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....

And the prize for biggest terrorist threat goes to...



'Homeland security and law enforcement professionals at all levels have taken notice of the rise in activity from white supremacist extremists New Jersey is committed to protecting the diversity of culture and faith that shapes our great State. For that reason, NJOHSP increased the threat posed by white supremacist extremists from moderate to high in 2020, joining homegrown violent extremists as the most persistent hostile actors in New Jersey.'

SURPRISE!!!! NOT
And not just in New Jersey either - at least if those conducting these risk assessments are honest in their assessments about where risks lie

Ideological purity be damned

After Nevada, if Sanders wins the nomination, I trust every democratic candidate and every voter will get behind him, but I truly cannot see how a 1960’s socialist with health issues is the obvious choice to beat Trump – and that is all that matters, ideological purity be damned. The political culture in the UK is to generally much more liberal than the US, and we have been condemned to a really right wing government for the next five years, because Labour, with Corbyn at its head, swung too far left for the average voter. The Boris/Trump Corbyn/Sanders similarities are worrisome. Deja vu is knocking on the door. An ego-driven right-wing narcissist with a 'take our country back' manifesto versus an old tub-thumping socialist who is challenging a status quo that has driven the political culture for the last 50 years. I think that this might be creating a more complex route to victory than is necessary. And so the question that needs to be answered and the strategy that needs to be sorted is how do we ensure a different outcome from the UK GE, because as you all know, I state without exaggeration that the fate of the world rides on the outcome of November 2020.

...there will be no one left to uphold the rule of law...

Full attack mode on yet another source of independent thinking and decision making. No justice, no impartial decision making, no fucking laws... criminals and traitors are going to be delighted...

Because they really enjoy living with an information deficit...



They revel in their ignorance. It is terribly disconcerting when you are knowledge seeker to bear witness to so many people wilfully turning their backs on fact based evidence.

Trump is sprinting to the top of the pyramid of white supremacy and that shit needs to be shut down



Just a hop skip and a jump to full on take out your enemies and groups of other... that shit needs shut down, with urgency...

The only question left is how low are they willing to go..

The corruption of the systems of Government in America are happening with intensifying, shocking regularity, for reasons. Trump and the powers behind his throne have pushed America into a state of almost absolute political chaos, egging on the violent bigotry, racism and hate that sit in the hearts of too many, allowing themselves to be distracted from the actual important shit, like freedom. They are being stoked into a frenzy by politicians happy to nourish that brutality if it secures their own power.

These days they do it without embarrassment, right out in the open. At least in the pre-Trump era they understood that even as they wanted to pull this shit off they had to do it undercover because such corruption would not stand with the majority. Not anymore. They are in your face. They have literally no shame as they pull apart the very principles on which America was founded. Trump has given them permission to show us who they really are, and it is nasty. They have made a political choice to stand with the wanker instead of standing with democracy… and are using distraction tactics to dupe the racist wankers that still, despite all evidence, think they are the bees knees. Ridiculous.

The only question left is how low are they willing to go in consolidation of power? Just when we think they can’t go any lower… Surprise!!! We all know it was trite bollocks when they said he had learnt his lesson with impeachment. This week has showed that all bets are off… he will do whatever he wants and fuck everything and everyone else. All the while winding up the MAGAts to very dangerous levels of white supremacist angst. What could possibly go wrong?...

Justice Sotomayor writes a devastating rebuke of her conservative colleagues' callousness and fealty

to Trump

She argued that “this Court is partly to blame for the breakdown in the appellate process. That is because the Court—in this case, the New York cases, and many others—has been all too quick to grant the Government’s ‘reflexiv[e]’ requests.”

She continued: ''Perhaps most troublingly, the Court’s recent behavior on stay applications has benefited one litigant over all others. This Court often permits executions—where the risk of irreparable harm is the loss of life—to proceed, justifying many of those decisions on purported failures “to raise any potentially meritorious claims in a timely manner.”

Yet the Court’s concerns over quick decisions wither when prodded by the Government in far less compelling circumstances— where the Government itself chose to wait to seek relief, and where its claimed harm is continuation of a 20-year status quo in one State. I fear that this disparity in treatment erodes the fair and balanced decisionmaking process that this Court must strive to protect.
''
In other words, she accused the conservative majority on the court of too easily dismissing the plight of people on death row, while jumping at the chance to do relatively trivial favors for the administration.

Emphasis mine.

The dismantling of justice continues apace... when you own the courts you own everything.

The Parallels are not a coincidence... they are a feature

One feels a bit of Churchill might be in order...

I have thought carefully in these last days whether it was part of my duty to consider entering negotiations with That Man… I am convinced that every man of you would rise up and tear me from my place if I were for one moment to contemplate parley or surrender. If this long island story of ours is to end at last, let it end only when each one of us lies choking in his own blood upon the ground.

As in fuck off if you think we will ever give in to the tyranny of fascism... Whatever the cost we cannot such horror to stand...

Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation... The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us now... if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age… Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that… men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'

Of course they did not fail, and they did not fight just for a great orange turd to fuck it all over 75 years later. He cannot be allowed to continue this madness...

Shouting triggered in 3...2...1...

Brexiters: If a pesky ‘Remoaner’ points out that your ‘Croatian blue’ passport, made in Poland by a Franco-Dutch company, will soon bestow demonstrably fewer privileges than your old one, just shout ‘Triggered!’ & say something rude about foreign-born doctors.
That’ll teach ‘em!


Heh. I can hardly wait for the massive queues at passport control when travelling anywhere... it will all be worth it cause I have my blue passport back...

Makes it all worth while 👀
