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....

Snowflakes doing murder and mayhem... heh.

Russia/Ukraine: An Analogy


This is really good, Russia is the abusive ex that is trying to stop Ukraine from dating.

Lying liars and the lies they tell...

Nick Cohen has a great piece in The Observer today

Lies come in all shapes and sizes. This government is familiar with them all

Worth clicking on the link to read of all it - but the summary in the final paragraph is a thing of beauty

It lied last week as it lies every week. It lies to the Queen. It lies to parliament. It lies to the electorate. It lies to itself. It lies as a matter of policy. It lies as a matter of course. It lies when it doesn’t need to lie. It lies because it doesn’t know what else to do. It lies because it is all it can do. This is a government that lies.


We are ruled by the worst lying liars in living memory, led by an innervate liar and upheld by a bunch of far right sycophantic liars. After all to support a liar you have to lie - and BoJo is the biggest liar of than all.

This is what a rigged economy looks like


Well that is a graph that slaps you round the fiscal chops, isn't it? It all went down hill with the policies of Reagan (and Thatcher) Not just America though - going to go with all of the western countries that have fallen for the conservative long con... *waves from the corporatist hell that is the UK*

Shooting democracy in the back.


But hey, it's just political discourse, right?
The fact that Russia is within minutes of invading a democracy. In the West. In 2020. Is witness to our new reality. Democracy stealing gaslighting going on all over the west. Taking advantage of living in a democracy to shoot democracy in the back.

MAGA - GOP etc et al
The list goes on and on. Enabling the very bad men to be their worst selves.

Has the post world war 2 liberal settlement been ever more at risk? I really don't think so.

All it can do now is blame the paintbrush...

A recent letter in the Irish Times as seen on the interwebs. Emphasis mine

Hard Brexit DUP in a nutshell. In the before times the DUP had a really strong hold on the unionist community. Run by complete numpties - but that is what happens when people only vote on the constitution - the brightest and the best want nothing to do with hardliner green and orange - so they pushed for Brexit. They literally did not have the wit to figure out that the Good Friday Agreement trumps everything - either that or they thought they could smash it. What they failed to realise is that in these after times the constitution is not the only game in town anymore and trying to impose a hard Brexit border is not the winner they thought it should be with middle class unionists - they are too busy applying for their Irish passports (seriously)....heh.

I know this letter this is about the DUP in the main - but it can apply equally to the far right English nationalists that currently cling to the highest offices in the land. The best way to strengthen the union would have been to vote remain... what silly rabbits.

OxyMORON or what?

Putting the Moron into Oxy all day long...

WTAF is WRONG with these people

Just saw this headline in the Daily Fail

Republican Senate candidate sparks fury with campaign ad showing him shooting at Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Mark Kelly - whose wife Gabby Giffords was shot in the head in 2011

A Republican candidate running for his party's nomination to face Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona this fall has sparked fury with a new Western-style ad
Ad shows Jim Lamon dressed as a sheriff, shooting at actors playing Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly, President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Kelly is married to Gabby Giffords, the former congresswoman who was shot in the head at an event with constituents in 2011
'DISGUSTING,' wrote the founder of the group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America Sharon Watts
Lamon doubled down on ad, which will air in Arizona during the Super Bowl
Kelly's campaign has not commented on ad but Lamon's rivals for the GOP nomination criticized it

The far right violent cray cray said: Left wing snowflakes can't stand the fact that, for once, AZ will have a Senator who will shoot straight with them & stop cowering to Biden. Their feigned outrage over our new Super Bowl ad came right on cue - but I won't be backing down,'

Link here if you can stand it. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10503567/GOP-Senate-candidate-sparks-fury-campaign-ad-showing-shooting-Biden-Pelosi-Mark-Kelly.html

For the love of everything that is sane, what the actual? They have no empathy, no sympathy, no class. And they are dangerous.

Our supernatural power is that we see...

Coming to you from my living room wall. We see. Patriarchy blinded us for multiple generations but look at us now. We are strong. Biff baff uppercut! Feminism as my own personal art gallery (you should see the rest). Hurrah!


Exactly this...Splendid
