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....

"If Clarence Thomas doesn't resign when will impeachment proceedings against him begin?"

https://twitter.com/MaryLTrump/status/1507463484753260547

A lot of people in the media are asking "Should Clarence Thomas recuse himself?" (Whether or not the answer to that is "Yes," he won't.) But that's the wrong question. The right one is this: "If Clarence Thomas doesn't resign when will impeachment proceedings against him begin?"


Exactly this

welp.

At this point Fox News is a literal RUSSIAN TROLL FARM.
Putin's puppets to a one. For shame.




Absolutely spot on!



And these nasty racist fuckers know exactly what they are doing.

Just watch this video. Just watch.

South Carolina renovated its death chamber and will now carry out firing squad executions

"The S.C. Department of Corrections informed the state’s Attorney General Alan Wilson Friday that it is now able to execute death row inmates using a three-person firing squad using live ammunition if an inmate chooses that method," The State reported. "The Legislature passed a law in 2021 that makes the electric chair South Carolina’s primary method of execution, but gives inmates the option to choose death by firing squad or lethal injection if available. Lethal injection has been unavailable for years in South Carolina."

Heh. Too close to the truth to be LOLZ

Brexit Britain - Shames us all...



You would think that when you are putting together a refugee policy, maybe some perspective taking on how you would want your family to be treated if the shoe was on the other foot would be a good plan. Not with this lot, obvs. They live in a desert of nasty and privilege where of course they cannot recognise what is happening to Ukrainians might happen to them because they can gaslight, buy, lie, and steal their way out of any situation – we are witness to this every day. According to the far right wankers in charge we are apparently leading the free world in co-ordinated international responses to the crisis. Of course we are... You can tell by that utterly damming map.

Can you see my eyes rolling from here…

'Global' Brexit Britain be like...


What they do is so cruel. When did we decide that it was an good idea to vote into power people where the cruelty and inhumanity is the point? I want my country back.

Stop what you are doing and give Barbara Woodward the attention she deserves ...

Stop what you are doing and give Barbara Woodward the attention she deserves as she holds Putin's lies and Russian disinformation to account. An outstanding 3 minutes.


"A whole pack of lies."

Dame Barbara Woodward tells the UN there is no credible evidence to support Russia's claims Ukraine has a biological weapons programme, adding Russia has brought "a series of wild, completely baseless and irresponsible conspiracy theories" to the UN.




BOOM! Such a shame that the numpty nazi's in downing street cannot bring the same gravitas to bear.

The conviction of infallibility is a dangerous pathology...

Powerful image, am I right? Excellent long read at the link.

Yet Putin is not Stalin. Stalin was a Marxist; Putin is a 21st-century tyrant, who, while co-opting elements of Romanov and Soviet imperialism, is a populist and nationalist, a practitioner of 21st-century identity politics who deploys both old-fashioned military heavy metal and the new hi-tech weaponry of social media.

Yet Stalin could not be more relevant. Stalin’s influence is imprinted everywhere in the state structure of Russia; he remains omnipresent. Putin’s repression at home increasingly resembles Stalinist tyranny – in its cult of fear, rallying of patriotic displays, crushing of protests, brazen lies and total control of media – ­although without the mass deportations and mass shootings. So far.

Emphasis mine

What a horrid horrid little tyrant. Bombs, war crimes, risking WW3 cause he thinks he deserves a legacy (like Stalin's? - you know that legacy of mass murder and horror for power and control...)

Putin's back to future be like ..



Russian Supremacy is so last century, Fuck that.
