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....

I saw this quote this morning and thought of November...


Graphic mine

It got me thinking about having no limitations on expectations for the democratic outcomes in the general. It is not enough to take down Trump, I mean that will be bloody marvellous in and of itself BUT why not go as big as possible cause if Biden is going to fix the mess this administration has left behind, blue up hill and down dale, county, state, congress, senate would make it a hell of a lot easier. Grappling with the ineffable indeed.
And to be fair with the shockingly appalling way they are handing covid-19, and with the markets in the toilet maybe we could eff sheds loads of republicans...
Biff. Baff. Uppercut.

Not so funny now, is it bro?



I do appreciate when karma kicks the arse of science denying morons who think that making fun of a pandemic is a sensible strategy to mitigate the effects of the harm that is coming upon all of us. Does this make me bad?!?!?

As Trump spends the morning ranting and whining like a pissy little brat on Twitter, remember this?

Just sayin'...

What will be their excuse for voting for him now?


So the markets are for shit and it is going to take sometime to recover. Everyone is taking a hammering, oil prices are collapsing and the global markets are in full on panic mode. Interesting times... and you know all of those MAGAts who think we are stupid and cannot see the white nationalism that is strong in them. You know the ''I am not a racist or a misogynist or a homophobe or a white christian nationalist, I only vote for him because look at how well my 401 is doing'' crowd. What the fuck are they going to use as their excuse to vote for him in November? Because we all know that while they may love the fact that their 401's were doing well (until this morning that is), that this is not their main driver in their voting choices - not for the MAGAts, not at all....

Shutting the door after the horse has bolted to the supermarket to stockpile loo roll comes to mind.

The UK government is setting up a disinformation office to tackle Russian troll lies on social media about Covid-19, where they are trying to create as much confusion as possible, because disrupting the West is the best. Of course those who are now worried about this disinformation are the exact same people who happily used Russian disinformation to ‘fix’ the outcome of Brexit. They also told us that we should no longer trust experts, that we were tired of fact based decision making, and it worked on quite significant cohorts of the electorate. BUT these right wingers should have been more careful in their distortion of facts, cause the people that fell for that bollocks don't believe in experts anymore...

Fast forward to today and these same cohorts of the electorate are being asked to follow the advice of experts and not fall for Russian disinformation to help contain the spread of the virus.

The irony is strong with this one.
2016 – Russian disinformation good. Experts Bad.
2020 – Experts good. Russian disinformation bad.

Shutting the door after the horse has bolted to the supermarket to stockpile loo roll comes to mind.

Still at least in the UK, the government is taking the advice of the experts, rather than actively engaging with Russian disinformation like the great orange toad squatting in the White House is doing.

Twitter Slaps 'Manipulated Media' Tag on Bullshit Video that Trump Retweeted

Twitter’s new rules concerning manipulated content went into effect this week, and—not surprisingly—President Donald Trump has already proven why the platform needed them in the first place.

On Sunday, Twitter applied its recently implemented “manipulated media” tag to a deceptively doctored video the president retweeted, as first reported by the Washington Post. The video, originally posted by White House social media director Dan Scavino, appears to show former vice president Joe Biden endorsing Trump’s reelection bid thanks to the magic of editing.

“Excuse me. We can only reelect Donald Trump . . .” Biden says in the clip. However, the second part of that quote, taken from a recent speech the Democratic frontrunner gave in Kansas City, Missouri, is cut off; he goes on to say, “We can only reelect Donald Trump if in fact we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. It’s gotta be a positive campaign.” As of Sunday evening, the edited clip has garnered 5.4 million views and more than 70,000 retweets.

Using manipulated media to lie and deflect... you don't say, heh.
He is literally a russian troll bot working for a russian troll farm

Six degrees of separation or is that infection?

CPAC chairman, Matt Schlapp, divulges the he had 'contact' with a covid-19 infected chap and went on to shake Trump's hand. Apparently, he also shook hands and intermingled with Ivanka Trump, Lara Trump and Jared Kushner. Reportedly Trump is unconcerned. Because Trump is quite literally a moron, but as he is a liar also he is probably bathing in disinfectant right now.

Trump administrations fix on the covid-19 numbers...

…hide a pandemic by literally refusing to identify the sick and help them.

My brother's ex-wife returned from S Korea with what doctors believe is #COVID19, was admitted to GWU hospital, and against the Chief of Staff's recommendation, the Department of Health WILL NOT TEST HER.


In a twisted way this makes perfect sense. If you are not testing people of course the numbers are going to stay low... and Trump is all about keeping the numbers low, they don't need to be real at all, after all nothing about Trump is real. Of course the fact that people may well die because of this... I can see the shrugs now round the cabinet table. When will idiots that still support him understand that he just does not care about them. At all.

Heh.
