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....

NEWSFLASH: cheating foreigners is a core part of the job

Dominic Cummings on the negotiation of the NI Protocol:



They never intended to stick to the deal. They lied throughout the negotiation to bounce the UK into the harshest of Brexits and now the GFA is under threat by these lying English nationalists posh boy thugs.

As James O'B has just brilliantly said: Rule Britannia. Britannia Waves The Rules. This is where we are now

Move along. Nothing to see here...👀



They need to get this pesky being held to account schtick over and done with asap. Trump is signalling that they should stand by again and they need to get to insurrecting.

Stupid and delusional, with limited consequences to their actions- a deadly combination.

Robert Reich: Supreme court, Facebook, Fed: three horsemen of democracy's apocalypse



These three power centers – the supreme court, the Fed and the biggest tech firms – have huge and increasing effects on our lives, yet they are less and less answerable to us.

Beware. Democracy depends on accountability. Accountability provides checks on power. If abuses of power go unchallenged, those who wield it will only consolidate their power further. It’s a vicious cycle that erodes faith in democracy itself.

Very interesting analysis at the link. It does feel like the west is on the cusp of something and it could go either way.

And in the comment section of the article...this:





Apparently, the Trump rally has a Braveheart theme.



Good grief. ''...they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDUMB!''



GOP Operative: Helping Kids of Color Feel Like They Belong Hurts White Kids

Who is Mary Beeman, I hear you asking. Well, Mary Beeman—she of the hate-filled Beemans from Connecticut—is a campaign manager for the Guilford Republican school board candidates, and during a University of Connecticut virtual education forum, Beeman fixed her thin Christian lips to claim that “helping kids of color to feel they belong has a negative effect on white, Christian, or conservative kids.”
----
When questioned about her comment, Beeman said, “The statement I made was poorly worded and shown out of context. Guilford students who may have staunch Judeo-Christian values, or simply are conservative thinkers, have been bullied into submission by their teachers and fellow students with left-leaning ideologies,” Eyewitness News 3 reports.

Emphasis mine

Well, ain't this KKKaren peachy? And still the racists think they get to say the quiet part out loud. Not sure her admitting that Judeo Christian value holders and conservative thinkers are white supremacists and ethno nationalists is the look they should be going for in 2021...


Thoughts and Prayers...



Tea Party firebrand Allen West tweets that he has COVID-19, pneumonia, and low oxygen
West said Saturday in a series of tweets that doctors were concerned about his oxygen saturation levels and that he would like be admitted to a hospital.

My chest X-rays do show COVID pneumonia, not serious," he wrote. "I am probably going to be admitted to the hospital.”

Emphasis mine

Hate to break it to him but covid pneumonia can kill ya, and neither the hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin that he is taking will do anything to stop it. Didn't he get the memo that as a far right politician you only PRETEND not to have had the vaccine to ensure the anti-vaxxer cray crays stay on side? Seemingly not. Or maybe he did but decided that coughing up a lung by choice would give him a leg up with the MAGA base freedumb crowd. Probably won't work though cause he is black after all and I reckon that Trumps intentional covid self harm any day of the white supremacist year.

But thoughts and prayers....

The Barnsley Busker

Siri, show me peak white privilege



“The term white privilege - very quickly - is an extremist term, it should be reported to Prevent, because it is an extremist ideology," he told the activists.

“It’s racist to actually suggest everyone who’s white somehow is riddled with privilege."

"I hope [using the term white privilege] will be reported, I hope that will be looked into, and any teacher who’s perpetuated it in the classroom ultimately should face a disciplinary hearing at the very least."

Emphasis mine

Prevent is the programme that people who are perceived to be at risk of extreme ideologies are referred. EG far right Nazis or ISIS wannabees. But yeah white privilege is just like that says a middle aged, middle class, BoJo far right white privileged man. Maybe he should refer himself as the Tory party is now the party of far right racist ideologues. Nazi's without the skinheads. Heh

I have always been a bit sketchy about reincarnation. Well, until now that is.



Explains how he is doing such a good job screwing the entire nation...
