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....

Now more than ever, Adam Schiff's Midnight in Washington speech ranks with the greatest in history.



''It is Midnight in Washington.

The lights are finally going out in the Capitol after a long day in the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump.

You can’t trust this president to do the right thing. Not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of our country.

You just can’t.

He will not change. And you know it.

History will not be kind to Donald Trump. I think we all know that, not because it will be written by never-Trumpers. But because whenever we have departed from the values of our nation, we have come to regret it. And that regret is written all over the pages of our history.

If you find that the house has proved its case, and still vote to acquit, your name will be tied to his with a cord of steel and for all of history.

He has betrayed our national security. He has compromised our elections, and he will do so again.

You will not change him. You cannot constrain him. Truth matters little to him.

What’s right matters even less and decency matters not at all.

We have proven Donald Trump guilty. Now do impartial justice and convict him''


Everything in the last year confirmed the worst of Schiff’s charges. When Trump’s culpability for COVID became manifest, we saw Schiff’s warning resonate with the deaths of hundreds of thousands. And now, none but the hardest core traitors can deny the prescience, lucidity and passion of Adam Schiff’s call for justice.

“You will not change him. You cannot constrain him. Truth matters little to him.

Emphasis mine

And here we are - with a bunch of complicit fascists whining that they could not have known he would go this far... All of them who failed to hold a proper and transparent hearing over Trumps impeachment need to be held accountable. They knew ir. They saw it. A democratic congress shoved their faces in it, and yet they need nothing to stop this man.


It wasn't me, it was Antifa, claims Shaggy

Despite being caught red-handed and on-camera banging on the counter, the sofa and in the shower, Shaggy has accused Antifa of cheating on his girlfriend.

The popular noughties singer, who was clearly witnessed banging on the bathroom floor, said that initial reports that it was him had been questioned by multiple sources and it is much more likely that the perpetrator was hard-left infiltrators.
------
However, witnesses were unmoved, saying they never took their eyes off him as he pounded away butt naked.

“A lot of people are saying it might not have been Shaggy”, said Conservative commenters on Twitter. “You have to at least consider the possibility that he was not to blame, and instead a fifth-column of socialists dressed up to look exactly like him and cheated with the girl next door to make him look bad.”

“And even if it was him, what about all the bad things other people have done? Why does nobody ever report that instead of talking about what Shaggy might or might not have done?”

“You should keep an open mind about who it was.”

MAGA 2021 be like...



Does this mean we are all MAGA now?!?!?

Tyrants gaze with glee at what Trump has done to American democracy

The violence on Capitol Hill was watched with horror in the capitals of liberal democracies and with glee among the rulers of Russia, China and Iran. Many of the world’s most unsavoury regimes seized on the grisly finale to the Trump presidency to justify their own autocracies. Beijing was gifted another opportunity to depict democracy as a recipe for anarchy. Tehran gloatingly took it as evidence of “how vulnerable and fragile western democracy is”. From Moscow came the snickering contention that “American democracy is obviously limping on both feet”.

We must hope that this is the final service that Mr Trump will render to the world’s autocracies after four years of offering them encouragement. From Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil to Viktor Orbán in Hungary to Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, authoritarians recognised themselves in his behaviour and from that drew strength. The Trump presidency has emboldened autocrats the world over to believe that liberal democracy is in decline and tomorrow belongs to them. It is not just America that has suffered a terrible price for the Trump presidency. The cost is being paid in lost liberty around the planet.

Emphasis Mine

When America catches a cold the whole world sneezes.

Obvs Trump was never going to pull off the coup – his habit of failing upward throughout his life continues unabated. However Biden is going to have to put the worlds strong men back in their tyrannical boxes of murderous bollocks post haste

Trump as a gay wedding cake wins the internet this week...

To anyone complaining about a private media company kicking Trump off their platform:

Think of Twitter as a Christian bakery and Trump as a gay wedding cake.

#BanTrumpFromTwitter




Just genius!

Best description of the seditious MAGA wankers I have seen this week



What a splendid way with words!

So expect a *lot* of fascist tears about 'Big Tech' & 'censorship' in the coming months.

Without social media, racist grifters will once again be confined to the back rooms of dodgy pubs, spluttering about ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ & ‘The Great Replacement’. So expect a *lot* of fascist tears about ‘Big Tech’ & ‘censorship’ in the coming months.


About time they started holding these fascist propogandists responsible for their seditious bollocks...

Oh what a lovely sight to behold...



Twitter. Facebook. Insta. See ya Donnie McTraitorFace Youtube has booted Bannon. Google has suspended Parler and Apple is threatening to follow. Rush has suspended his own twitter account in protest. Right wing twitter is divided between blaming antifa for the seditious acts of treason that MAGA wankers committed with impunity, and trying to distance themselves for their own very obvious fascism. They are eating their own and LOLZ.

Question of the ages though - why the fuck did the MAGA storming Congress think they would be successful. I mean they were following the orders of a man who has failed upwards his entire life... why would they think he could pull of a successful coup? I mean the man in an incompetent surrounded by sycophantic incompetents. Of course it was always going to end the way it did and they will all be rounded up and locked up - for Trump?!?!?! Suckers.


'Traitor': Lindsey Graham surrounded by Trump supporters at airport after breaking with president

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was escorted by police from a terminal inside Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport after a group of Donald Trump’s supporters chanted “traitor” and screamed “you work for us” after he condemned Donald Trump’s response to a violent mob at the US Capitol and baseless allegations of election fraud.

"One day you will not be able to walk down the street," one woman yells in video shared by Politico’s Daniel Lippman. “Today is the day.”

Rock. Hard Place. Oh my.

This was posted on his twitter feed early by what I can only presume is a cultist..



LOL, poor old Lindsay... 4 years of denigrating himself at the alter of Mad King Trump and it has all been for nought. Couldn't happen to a more deserving sycophantic toady.. a traitor to the constituent and now a traitor to those who want to destroy the constitution...bloody marvellous.

The Left: "Trump is a Nazi who appeals to Nazis!"

The Right: "Oh, fuck off. You say everyone you don't like is a Nazi, snowflake."

The Right: *votes Trump*

*Nazis storm Congress at Trump's behest*

The Right: "How dare you say we're complicit in this act!"

Trump acknowledges he will leave the White House -- in 4 am statement on aide's Twitter account

Unable to tweet himself, Trump released a comment on Twitter through aide Dan Scavino.

In it, Trump acknowledges there will be a transition, but continues to repeat his delusions about the election that resulted in the fatal attack on the capitol.

Statement by President Donald J. Trump on the Electoral Certification:

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I have always said we would continue our...

...fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”


What a dick. Why can't he just fuck off already. Are we supposed to congratulate the fascist that after his failed coup attempt he will now agree to a peaceful transfer of power. What does he want, a round of applause?
