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....

Lyft Driver in Indianapolis Kicks Gay Couple Out of Car After They Kiss



“We basically pecked, nothing out of the ordinary,” Martella, who is a student at Butler, told the paper. “He looked in his rear view mirror. He was yelling. We were stunned. We didn’t know the reason for it. He said, ‘I’m going to end your ride. I can’t have that in my car. I don’t have that here.’ … I was really upset. It was a big reaction for such a small display of affection between two guys.” Jensen agreed on the entire surreal nature of the sequence of events: “We gave each other a short kiss on the lips. … I was just surprised the whole thing happened. It just didn’t seem like it was real.”

That cannot be legal? Right?

Right-wing thought leader Jordan Peterson endorses "enforced monogamy"



A self-help guru, Peterson has spent a lot of time pondering the source of youthful-male rage, which manifested last month in a terrorist attack in Toronto perpetuated by a man who described himself as an incel--short for involuntary celibacy--a term representing a group of men and an online culture that blames women for their poor sex life.


Over the course of Peterson's two-day-long interview with the Times, the academic offered his insights on the relationship between man and woman and how feminism has polluted the natural order.

“The masculine spirit is under assault,” Peterson told the Times. “It’s obvious.”

One of Peterson's most controversial opinions in the profile is his recommended remedy for the virus plaguing the masculine spirit.

“The cure for that is enforced monogamy," Peterson said.

It was the type of assertion that usually precedes a laugh and a clarification that it was a joke. But Peterson did not say this in jest.

"Mr. Peterson does not pause when he says this," Bowles wrote of this specific interaction. "Enforced monogamy is, to him, simply a rational solution. Otherwise women will all only go for the most high-status men, he explains, and that couldn’t make either gender happy in the end."

Good grief... Can someone let him know that we are 18 years into the 21st Century and subjugating women to protect male egos is soooooooo last century

Notorious 'progressive' anti-Hillary conspiracy blogger has pivoted to pro-gun and 'Trump 2020'



He was described by The Washington Post as “the unofficial scribe of Sanders’s most hardcore voters” and he was invited on CNN and MSNBC to advocate for Bernie Sanders.

Goodman has since changed his tune. He now has a pro-Second Amendment YouTube channel and is now openly supporting Trump’s 2020 re-election bid on his Twitter account.
==============

Goodman pushed the scandal about Hillary Clinton’s emails, the debunked conspiracy theory about a uranium deal and even Benghazi. He wrote that Hillary Clinton was certain to be indicted for deleting her emails, and that she should therefore concede to Bernie. After Bernie lost to Clinton, Goodman urged Bernie to contest the Democratic convention and then, finally, urged fellow die-hard Berners to vote for Jill Stein.

Now, while he calls himself a “former liberal” on his Second Amendment channel, Goodman is arguing to fellow “progressive” followers that the Mueller investigation is bunk.

Jared Kushner's Harvard graduating class just publicly trashed him in 15-year anniversary

https://twitter.com/benwikler/status/997910004010311686

The public disappointment in Jared and his enabling of Trump was heavily featured in the Harvard Class of 2003’s fifteen-year anniversary report. While Jared himself failed to submit any content for the document, his peers didn’t pass up the opportunity to trash their former classmate.

Texas Republican Unsure How Demanding His Children Marry White People Makes Him A Bigot



Vic Cunningham is not denying that the clause exists, but is not really sure how it makes him a bigot. He explained to reporters that this clause was simply one of many “milestones” in which his children can get a distribution of their trust. Which, of course, makes it all very normal and not bigoted. He also says that his views have never affected any of his decisions as a judge.
“I strongly support traditional family values,” Cunningham explained to the Dallas Morning News. “If you marry a person of the opposite sex that’s Caucasian, that’s Christian, they will get a distribution.”

He also said that his views on this have “evolved” since he set up the trust in 2010, owing to his son’s relationship with a Vietnamese woman, but that he couldn’t do anything about the trust now.

Short and to the point.
