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....

New Rule (well a really old rule actually!)

Idiot is being kind

Oh, Jeremy Corbyn or is that Bernie Bros'?!?!

In the UK election a whole load of young people went mad for the old paternalistic chap that was Corbyn. A socialist with the most socialist credentials ever (circa 1965), no understanding of identity politics and there there we will take care of you, failing to recognise that most people are inspirational, that they are not victims. The largest socialist democratic party in the Europe had the worst defeat since 1935. The Corbynistas are the same as the Bernie Bros, no dissent, no argument, you cannot possibly be a progressive unless you buy into their canard.

I see parallels with our GE where an old crusty social democrat went up against a privileged rich racist and got very badly spanked and as Bernie seems to be leading the polls, I fear that history might repeat itself. What is it anyway about old white men - who are literally older than dirt- thinking they need to be the ones to sort shit out?

One last point, in the UK we are for more left than the US, even with Boris in the hot seat. The UK put a huge middle finger up to Corbyn, irrespective of them being the largest socialist party in Europe and having a very enthusiastic core membership. Barack Obama was to the right of our Conservative PM Cameron. And he was framed as pinkomarxistsocialisthateroffreedon. Bernie cannot win a general. That is a disaster for the world and America. It is food for thought.

I write this because as a progressive monster for truth, who daily is deeply distressed about the bastardisation of freedom, it can never be Bernie or bust, it cannot be Bernie. Winning is everything and December in the UK tells you everything you need to know about that.

Don't you want to see Elizabeth Warren on a debate stage with Donald Trump? I do.

Don't you want to see Elizabeth Warren on a debate stage with Donald Trump? I do.

Warren's dismantling of Bloomberg over his treatment of women was one of the most precise and devastating political attacks I have witnessed in twenty years of following this stuff

Elizabeth Warren unleashed is a remarkable thing to watch.

Did Elizabeth warren just say she shot a man in Reno just to watch him die?


Biff. Baff. Uppercut!

Trumps shoots man on 5th Avenue with yuge manly bullets...

This could actually happen which is where shit is.

Wilful with more than a smattering of hate filled ignorance...

Anyone who still supports him is a racist. This is all of them

Pentagon's top policy official is expected to depart his post soon.

Breaking: Pentagon’s top policy official is expected to depart his post soon. John Rood, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, has lost the support among senior national security leadership & has been asked for his resignation. - @barbarastarrcnn
and I reporting.

This is not good. Another casualty of the war on democracy no doubt...

The Primary is for Vetting... and some facts speak for themselves

In any other year that would disqualify him immediately, right? What about this year?

George Zimmerman announces lawsuit against Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren for $265 million

According to the conservative Washington Times, reported that Zimmerman is accusing the Democrats of “maliciously defam[ing]” him by using the killing of Martin “as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers.”

“The obvious intent of Buttigieg and Warren’s Tweets is alleged race-baiting, in an attempt to draw African American votes during this Democrat presidential primary season,” Tea Party gadfly lawyer Larry Klayman said in a statement.

“Both defendants, Buttigieg and Warren, are alleged in the complaint to have acted with actual malice, as it is widely known that Zimmerman was acquitted of murder based on self-defense,” the statement said.

Emphasis mine

How on earth can they defame him with righteous truth????
Money grubbing Nazi really needs to fuck right off.

You know who else took control of the justice system?

Fuckers voted him in too, and their government voted for him to take extraordinary power away from all branches of the administration writ large. He didn’t need the army to take control, once the justice system is corrupted everything is possible. Then comes the military to knock down the doors of those who are fighting against a system of justice that is no longer just, because they work for the head of state after all.

Right now Trump does not need the army, he has exactly what he needs to force the authoritarian boundaries as much as wants, after all he has a senate majority that are just standing there and letting him destroy law and order, no push-back at all. It would not surprise me in the slightest if they decided to vote through a suspension of the election, cause…. something or other.

As Margaret Atwood wrote in the Handmaids Tale: “That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn't even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn't even an enemy you could put your finger on.”

It is almost like they are reading a how-to manual, or at the very least, someone is showing Trump 1930’s European history in a picture book.


I don't want to hear another word from you deplorable shitweasels about the constitution or the rule of law

Exactly this. Between that fucker McConnell talking about SCOTUS nominations in an election year, to Trump pardoning corrupt dicks left and right, to Barr literally destroying the justice system... to everything that is wrong with what the Republican party is doing to America, all of them need to either stop doing the wrong thing or sit the fuck down. Of course, none of these wankers would know the constitution if it jumped up and bit them on their lily white supremacist power hungry arses...
