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 are all going to fall into the bigly burning ring of sedition fire

AP is reporting today that:

Members of President Donald Trump’s failed presidential campaign played key roles in orchestrating the Washington rally that spawned a deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol, according to an Associated Press review of records, undercutting claims the event was the brainchild of the president’s grassroots supporters.

A pro-Trump nonprofit group called Women for America First hosted the “Save America Rally” on Jan. 6 at the Ellipse, an oval-shaped, federally owned patch of land near the White House. But an attachment to the National Park Service public gathering permit granted to the group lists more than half a dozen people in staff positions for the event who just weeks earlier had been paid thousands of dollars by Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. Other staff scheduled to be “on site” during the demonstration have close ties to the White House.


With apologies to Johnny Cash

Trump is a burning thing
And he shits a fiery ring
Bound by hatred wild
The cult fell into a ring of fire

They fell into a burning ring of fire
They went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

The taste of hate is dour
With hearts of vileness sour
They fell for him like the hating racist white supremacist fuckers that they are, and
Oh, but the fire went wild

People that served at the Mad Fascist Kings feet and grabbed the tawdry crumbs from his table are today sobbing under the table at what is about to happen... Marvellous I say!

There can never be common ground with fascists...

White racist privileged supremacists are really good at gaslighting communities into thinking that their positions should not be met with the utter contempt they deserve, because they are male pale stale and privileged. They have pulled this off for so long they are rather bewildered that in 2021, people are telling them to do one, that their fascistic tendencies are no longer up for polite debate as if they should ever have been a real thing. Fascists and racists calling for unity like it is 1950 and harmony means keeping white male privileged supremacy happy no matter the cost to everyone else who is not just like them. Well, not today, buttercups.

They gaslighted the fishing industry but, hey, at least the British fish are happy...

This week has been a shocker in the UK on so many levels. I was listening to our not very illustrative Foreign Secretary Raab today on Marr and he denied that the fishing industry are having any significant issues getting the fish they are still allowed to catch to their markets in Europe. In the face of all evidence to the contrary he decided live on the BBC that he would just deny the evidence of his eyes and ears and lie.

They lied to get the fishermen to vote overwhelmingly for Brexit. They were conned into believing that ruling the waves again could be an actual thing in a 21st century global economy, and now as their goods lay rotting at the ports, well, at least the fish are happy.

This was always going to happen. It is the same with Trump and the republicans, all gaslight, bluster and bollocks. That anyone ever thought that these privileged wankers could make a success of Brexit is beyond me. No strategies, no structures, no planning, no effective governance, just a strapline as ridiculous as we are Empire and Rule Britannia – that should do it chaps…

Had success written all over it. 👀

The so very exclusive serial killer cult of the far right...

Tying for that honour... Trump
Dustin Higgs becomes 13th and final federal prisoner executed under Trump

Of course all that is dwarfed by the killing of Americans by the entire administration due to utter and total incompetence, ineptitude, malevolent cynicism, and not giving one actual shit by anyone other has led to infections and death rates many of which could have been avoidable.

Now don't get me wrong. This is a pandemic. People would have died anyway even there was an administration that was competent and cared. So let us be generous to Javanka, President Cheeto, The Stepford Veep and all of their enablers and say that as America knocks on the door of 400,000 deaths, 50% would have occurred anyway... that means they killed 200,000 of their fellow citizens, because they did not care enough to even try. And I think I am being very generous.

Heh. Not just a death cult. Serial Killers the lot of them!

"Donald Trump is a genius. That's what the 'J' stands for."

“Donald Trump is a genius. That’s what the ‘J’ stands for.”

This says it all...There is quite clearly nothing more to add, EVER!


And ladies and gentleman that goes a long way to explaining the conned...

Sorry? What now? 20th Century Patriarchy in a 21st Century World

Let me tell you a story of an interaction I had today. An internal applicant has applied for a job on one of my teams, it would be a significant jump for her internally, but her previous employment history indicates that she is certainly qualified to be interviewed for the post. Due to the current lock down I have delayed recruitment and requested she be seconded for three months to me and when our recruitment freeze is over she should be able to demonstrate to the business that the proposed jump is worth while.

In conversation with her manager today, he decided FOR HER that she was not ready for this post, not because of her skills set, but because the STRESS OF HER HOME LIFE coupled with the NEW JOB would be too much of a strain for her. Excuse me? What now? So a woman decides to apply for a job, that she has the skills set to do well, and has done in the past, and her manager tries to put me off cause he thinks he is somehow responsible for her supposed stress levels. Good grief. I have no doubt that his intentions where honourable in his own head. I do not believe he was trying to steal an opportunity from her for any nefarious reason. He was doing patriarchal patronisation for what he felt where valid reasons, without realising he was doing it.

My response

That's lovely. A woman can make her own decisions about the level of stress they can handle, if she is up for it, my job is to support her to make it a success, not limit her because of the stress she has to manage outside of business.

Not in response cause I am professional

Do one you sexist dick, have you ever heard of women making their own choices, and the sisterhood that supports raising up women wherever and whenever we can, because of chaps just like you? You have really pissed me off and for sure I am raising this so you can get some training...

She starts working for me Monday

I am soooooooo enjoying my new job! LOL

PS - had a long conversation with her this evening and she is amazing - she is going to be brilliant!

21st Century Fascist Terrorist Hunger Strikes Are Totally Snowflake

LOLOLOLOL. Not sure how much Avocado toast is available in lock up!!!! I feel a guffaw coming.

Once a Nazi...

His position cannot stand...

...let justice roll down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream...

History of course will judge them - but let part of that examination being about the length of their jail sentences... let history know that they were judged and judged harshly so the next time a fascist dictator wannabee wants to pull of a coup he / she thinks better of it!

Unity with fascists makes us fascist. We don't unite with fascists. We defeat them

A few days ago @mrjamesob asked me if I felt vindicated bc I’ve been saying for years that they’re fascists. And I realized when I woke up this morning the answer is: I feel angry. Furious. We warned people, using historical evidence, of what was happening.

And then she continues …
