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....

There is so much to unpick here...

Rats in a drowning High Street! Genius.
Just a shame it does not have Cain and Cummings swimming away from the shit show they have created.

Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian on The Voter Fraud Fraud





Funny, but it is so true it is depressing in equal measure!

It's between those who saw the con early and those who still don't see it.

The most important dividing line in American politics these days, it seems to me, isn't between liberal and conservative. It's between those who saw the con early and those who still don't see it

And we must not forget those like McTurtle who enabled the con cause power - they love the dividing line - it makes them money. It is exactly the same over here with Brexit. The conned cannot except that they made an error in judgement on Brexit, and worse, voting in BoJo and his cabal of far right male pale and stale nasty fuckers to somehow make a success of Brexit. 33 working days to go. No deal on the table. Highest death rate in Europe. So much winning, and so surprise! the rats are deserting the sinking ship - which is bloody marvellous, but far to late for the many thousands who have died unnecessarily because of a campaigning government, rather than a ruling one. Sounds familiar right?!?! Heh.

Johnson's senior adviser Cummings expected to resign by year-end

Of course, Cummings (the lying architect of Brexit) has done what he came to do... cause havoc and ensure a no deal Brexit because he is a very privileged libertarian wanker, who will not be affected by the economic hardship and the disarray he has ensured people and businesses will face because of his year in Number 10. Bolting out of Downing Street before his unaccountable incompetence is firmly on display in January. Number 10 is just like the White House right now - except unfortunately for us we don't have an election for four more years.

Activism isn't only about anger. Joy is also an act of resistance.

It will take time, and it will be hard. But right now, it feels like there might be time. The US is never going back to normal, and that’s OK. What passed for normality in the US for two centuries always came at too high a cost. The old and white and rich and mean and scared still cling to the delusion that anyone else’s happiness is an existential threat. It isn’t, but for as long as that confusion lasts, joy is an act of resistance.

Emphasis mine

All of this. It is a long read at the link but worth every minute of you time.

It's almost like they don't believe any of their literal arguments at all...

It's almost like they don't believe any of their literal arguments at all, and the truth of this whole situation is election results are reliable when Republicans win, and illegitimate otherwise.


Surprise! Hypocrisy and duplicity 101. They have no shame.

All it knows how to do is rage and feed and kill.

Trumps ongoing meltdown explained perfectly! They know that white supremacy is in the ropes ad the rest of us be like...


Stirring, uplifting, inspiring and just too damned cute...



A whole generation of young women are seeing a woman as VP
A whole generation of young women of colour are seeing them reflected in the VPs office.
About time I say and also isn't this girl a cutie?

Now, with Biden kicking the Great Orange Jabba out of White House...

... you do realise we now have the shittiest leader in the Western world, right?



While pleased for our cousins across the pond that they are about to push Biden over the line, we have now lost the line, well at least he is not Trump. There are literally no downward comparisons left.

The eagle has landed... in the gulag 🤣



Absolute genius thread ending up exactly the right place. And as for Trump - the moon has it, the moon has it...



Buh Bye

He's desperate, he's flailing, and there's literally nothing he can do legitimately except to watch



“Well, we’re seeing a man who is in a unique position. Donald has never been in this place before where there’s nobody to bail him out, there’s nobody to buy him out. He’s desperate, he’s flailing, and there’s literally nothing he can do legitimately except to watch this play out helplessly.”

“This wasn’t just Donald obfuscating or lying. This was Donald talking about an attempted coup. The leader of a country trying desperately to de-legitimize an election. it is obscene and somebody has to step in and stop him.”


The GOP own this. This coup will not succeed as court after court tell the authoritarian bollocks that is the Trump GOP to fuck right off, that they will not stop the vote count, but when this is over the complicity of the silence of the republican leadership should be soved into their anti-democratic faces repeatedly.
