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....

It's all in the interpretation of the vernacular



The contrast could not be clearer. Heh.
Democracy versus violent insurrection.

It is like we speak two different languages...

This is how the Trump era ends...



It was always going to end in a car crash of fascist cray cray. How Senate republicans think that clinging to the fetid carcus of the bloviating wannabee totalitarian blowhard of dubious lineage and limited shelf life, is a long term strategy to retain power is beyond me. They let the far right in to sit at their table and now they are reduced to begging for crumbs from them by letting Trump off his treasonous hook. Do they not realise that those they answer too in their states are not terribly representative of the population as a whole? That the state party level machine got taken over by the baggers a decade ago and that batshit crazy has been brewing a potent mix of delusion and hatred for the last ten years, which is now at boiling point.

By pandering to this swamp of nationalist, white supremacy, insurrectionist base of awfulness they risk locking themselves out of power for the next decade.

Good.

Tennessee Lawmakers Introduce Bill To Allow Fathers To Veto Abortions

A bill introduced in the Tennessee General Assembly this week would allow a man who gets a woman pregnant to request an injunction barring her from having an abortion.

The legislation, SB0494 in the Senate and HB1079 in the House, would require a court hearing to be held within 14 days of a petition being filed by the individual seeking an injunction.

At the hearing, if the man can prove that he is the biological father and that there is a “reasonable probability” that the woman would obtain an abortion, the court shall issue an injunction prohibiting her from terminating the pregnancy. Proof of parenthood requires only that the petitioner acknowledges paternity. A DNA test is not required.

If the woman violates the injunction by obtaining an abortion, the court may hold her in civil or criminal contempt. There are no exceptions for rape or incest.

Emphasis mine

Of course this will not and cannot stand. These would be stealers of female agency will ultimately fail in these endeavours, but this theocratic patriarchal BS has to stop. Where have we seen this before? Oh. Wait.



Weaponised belief
Though set during the English civil war, Witchfinder General is chiefly a film about belief, or at least the harnessing of belief’s power in order to fulfil other terrible needs and desires. If its political message could be boiled down to one idea, it would be that belief can allow and excuse the most alarming of atrocities.

Emphasis mine

Same mindset - centuries apart. Punishing women takes them to their sadistic happy place.
And not even an exemption for rape or incest. These fuckers think of rape as a punishment for women putting themselves in harms way, the she was asking for it schtick and that children are owned by the head of the far right religious cray cray household.. Can you imagine having to be a woman around these awful people... I think I would request the ducking stool just to get away from them 👀

Rep. Raskin to Former President Trump Defense Lawyer: "You should have been here on January 6th."



“You know, counsel said before, this has been ‘my worst experience in Washington,’ and for that I guess we’re sorry—but, man, you should have been here on January 6th.”

BOOM!!!!

Trump will skate because of all of this..



Patrick McGuire - absolutely spot on. They are Trump.

Trump was knowing, wilful and remorseless



His viciousness is limitless - he would have seen the country burn to retain power. And it is not like he was even enjoying the job. One thing for sure though anyone who has seen the evidence and still votes to acquit is an enemy of the people...

I mentor a young lady

I am not going into her circumstances but other than to say we swim in rather opposite ends of the privilege pool. She is really fucking cool. A lot of our pre covid mentoring time was spent cracking up as she gives me a lesson in the common vernacular of our young people and I then interpret into old lady grammatically correct English. Oh My Days! is frequently expressed - I think she looks at me as a rather interesting fossil in many ways. However, within our jocular times we also set a plan, we worked together to support her to achieve her plan and it is a marvellous plan that is not my story to tell.

Anyway - I will get to the point of this ramble. About 9 am this morning the door knocks and there was a box with Prosecco in it. And a label that said - Get Lit (she means get drunk *cough* and I will *waves to the lovely xxxx if she clicks in the link I am going to send her), name of my friend and xxxx

This afternoon - a bouquet of roses

She has decided she will be my valentine until a crusty old boy of my own is found...

How lovely. How heart warming. How fucking special.

Oh My Days!!! I love her. I love intergenerational relationships. They strengthen all of us, and this year my friend is my valentine.

Copying the chick in question into this link .

Also to my friend - check out this site. Proper progressives that don't put up with balderdash (J you like how I did that?? LOL. You know you do!!!, even though if I suggested you don't put up with smack instead you would hide your head under your pillow and weep at my old lady vernacular anyway! )

Jim Crow Rising



They KNOW that they cannot win with an enfranchised populace. They cheated and lied and suppressed the vote in 2020 and it still was not enough, so they have to go further. Why try and broaden your coalition and appeal when you can just block certain communities from voting period? They are despicable. They are fascists and they will not stop.

Deplorables 2021 going further and farther than ever before in their attempts to overthrow democracy.

Very much a first world problem, but...

When you live a single occupancy household, during a national lockdown, and the highlight of your week is standing in shitty, sleet snow powered by a bitter wind, for over an hour to access you local favourite emporium on a Sunday, to do a weekly grocery shop, and see actual human beings (rather than on screen) for the first time in 7 days...



Fun times 👀


They have defined themselves and need to own the fascist cray cray



199 republican lawmakers have decided to embrace the following positions:
"Q" is "someone that very much loves his country, and he's on the same page as us, and he is very pro-Trump."
"There's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping paedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it,"
"none of the School shootings were real,"
"false flag" [operations on school shootings]
[Pelosi] "a traitor to our country, she's guilty of treason, a crime punishable by death."
[On Jewish lasers in space - Rothschild investment bank was involved in the creation of the lasers.] "Could that cause a fire? Hmmm, I don't know, I hope not! That wouldn't look so good for PG&E, Rothschild Inc, Solaren or Jerry Brown who sure does seem fond of PG&E."
"The people re-elected Donald Trump. Now, it's time to #FightForTrump."

So just to recap – republican representatives give a standing ovation to the following positions:
Q is a patriot, who loves America and is very pro-Trump… not a batshit cray cray conspiracy theory that exploits peoples vulnerabilities and had had a significant impact on victims mental well being…
Democrats and Hollywood elites are satan worshipping, baby blood drinking, paedophiles, when they are not busy being the deep state and eating Pizza in the basement…
School Massacres are not a thing. Period. All made up cause cold bare hands and all that bollocks.
Happy that colleagues across the aisle are branded traitors who should be put to death, and then they feign shock when their base tries to do exactly that.
Jewish laser beams. Anti-Semitic and cray cray in one fell swoop.
The big lie. The big fascist nasty lie.

They have bought the cheese, they are so far down the rabbit hole that seemingly there is no way out. They built the layers of crazy since President Obama won his first term, and they really do own this now. The batshit member from Georgia, has them by the balls and is squeezing hard. Pizza anyone?
