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....

Badda Badda Bing!



Heh. Funny but not funny.

It's almost like they have been planning this for decades...



“We reject a one-size-fits-all approach to education and support a broad range of choices for parents and children at the state and local level. We likewise repeat our long-standing opposition to the imposition of national standards and assessments, encourage the parents and educators who are implementing alternatives to Common Core…”2016 Republican Platform. Emphasis mine.

This is objectively funny but also not funny at all.
Our kids don't need no education... give them reasoning skills?!?!?! Hell no.
I have the perfect neo GOP election slogan for 2022 'Keep them stupid keep their vote.'

In Dutch newspaper... says it all.



I have some rant to add...

Crops rotting in the fields because surprise! Brits don't want to that work...
Just in time production close to complete collapse
Not nearly enough lorry drivers to keep the supply chain moving
Shelves empty of some goods in supermarkets across the land! Minister appointed to save Christmas 👀
17.1% or €16bn fall in UK exports to EU
Brexit trade barriers added £600m in costs to UK importers this year
Britishness (english white blokes) Programming
Not enough workers to pull the pints
NI Protocol and threatening collapse of the assembly - and the stability of the peace process (again)
A border in the Irish Sea
Medical supplies compromised
Imperial measures (Really)
Gaslighting the entire nation - case in point... Nadine @ Culture? There's a juxtaposition if you ever saw one

And this...

Look at Patel as she marks Gale’s card. See how she checks Johnson’s face as a guide to her required stance. Lucky for Gale - Johnson hasn’t yet authorised water boarding. It’ll come.

Roger Gale - Thanet Earth has had to trash £320,000 worth of produce because of no pickers and drivers. The crops are rotting in the fields and on our trees. Will the PM introduce, immediately, a Covid recovery visa?

TBF that was a heart breaking I told you so to the Brexiters in his own party. They will be after him as with pitchforks for exposing the ruinous outcome of their brexit uplands of absolute shite.

The man behind the Texas abortion law tells women to 'control their reproductive lives by refraining

from sex'

The man described as the legal architect of Texas's new anti-abortion law has argued in past briefs that women can effectively "control their reproductive lives" by committing themselves to abstinence before marriage.
---
"Women can 'control their reproductive lives' without access to abortion; they can do so by refraining from sexual intercourse," he wrote in a brief earlier this year. "One can imagine a scenario in which a woman has chosen to engage in unprotected (or insufficiently protected) sexual intercourse on the assumption that an abortion will be available to her later. But when this court announces the overruling of Roe, that individual can simply change their behavior in response to the court's decision if she no longer wants to take the risk of an unwanted pregnancy."

Emphasis mine

And there it is. Power, control, punishment and Patriarchy. Nothing to do with the foetus, never has been. Theocratic control freaks wanting women uneducated, bare footed, pregnant and in the kitchen.


Pelosi at Cambridge Union.: Trump will be first president to be 'impeached twice and defeated twice'



And cult. Huzzah.

ALL OF THIS



This is everything.

Can you imagine being such a toady and still getting the boot?

Watching the cabinet reshuffle. I mean come on - Buckland & Jenrick would go on the Sundays and LIE over and over and they are still out. Lie down with dogs... hehe

Larry Elder's mammoth defeat may signal the death rattle of Trumpism. [Maybe]

The vote was roughly 2-to-1 against the recall. That's a landslide by any measure. Indeed, when the results are certified, Newsom may have beaten the recall by a larger margin than his 2018 victory in the gubernatorial race.

For Republicans who backed the recall, that's a clear repudiation. And what makes it even more significant is that Newsom did some things as governor that stirred anger and resentment.
----
As word about Elder's jumbled, racist, misogynistic, anti-science and extreme anti-abortion beliefs got traction among Californians who had never listened to his radio rants, alarm bells started to go off. And not just among Democrats. Business leaders were also worried. And that caused voter turnout to soar.

Trumpism can't grow and regain power when all its got are made up tales of vote fraud. California voters just proved it by overwhelming margins at the polls.

It is an interesting analysis. But way too optimistic IMO. I think I would have rephrased the headline - Elders defeat could be a signal, but probably not..

I mean the man got monstered of that there is no doubt. He got kicked so hard in his right wing balls that right now they are bigger than Nikki's cousins friend.

But a clear repudiation? There is danger in that type of thinking. That the bluest of blue California looked left and right and decided that kicking a far right religious cray cray Trump cult worshipper to the curb was a good plan is hardly surprising. The state that went 63.48% for Biden in the last GE went 67.5% for no. 34.2% voted for Trump and 32% voted for yes. This is not a repudiation of anything. I mean it demonstrates that a few more have got fed up of the utter rabid horror that is the GOP and it is a splendid outcome of course and well done Newsom, but this outcome does nothing to suggest that the cult is anything other than alive and well and living in unmoveable 30% cray cray land. The question for me is not why did Elder lose, but rather - where, with all the hate and nasty and voter suppression, could such an utter ethic and morality free zone of a man win? Cause 22 and 24 is not far away and there are too many places that think he is perfectly splendid with a side of black to prove that they, in the land of white supremacists, are not racist really... 'look at me I voted for a black man'.

Complacency is a danger zone that is every easy to fall into on the back of such a solid result - and the article is straying in that direction. Just sayin'



A day in the life of a leftist



Oh those good old glory days...
Although TBF Twerking is a stretch. This here leftist ain't got not rhythm!

Not sure where you can go with these people? Obvs not the verse, because of course. But the delusion is so deep nothing can save them, not even God because they worship a new deity now and thou shalt call him agolf twitler.
