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....

They don't want peace, they want submission



They are cowards, you should not be police if your first instinct is to fire first. Policing by consent rather than force should always be the ideal. But white racist supremacy always be nazi...

Three British teenagers who mocked George Floyd's death in sick online video are arrested on

suspicion of committing a hate crime

Three British teenagers who mocked the murder of George Floyd in a Snapchat video have now been arrested on suspicion of committing a hate crime.

The trio, all from Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, caused outrage after a photo of them recreating how the unarmed 46-year-old black man died at the hands of police in Minnesota was shared on social media.
-----
A police statement said: 'We can confirm we are investigating after an image was shared on social media which showed two men imitating the recent death of US citizen George Floyd.

'An investigation was launched and yesterday (Sunday) officers arrested two males aged 19 and another male aged 18 on suspicion of sending communications causing anxiety and distress.

'They have since been released on bail. We understand that this social media post has caused significant upset and we want to reassure the public it is being investigated robustly and is being treated as a hate crime.'

Little racist shits. I am going to guess that Warick University will be withdrawing their offers. In the UK causing harm and distress to minority communities is a real thing in law!

Cincinnati sheriff deputies replace American flag at the Justice Center with pro-police...

...‘thin-blue-line’ flag

Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio’s third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.

During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.

While the flag may have been created in support of law enforcement, it has been adopted by white supremacists and taken on a darker meaning.

Emphasis mine

Whatever bollocks excuse they came out with - this was an explicit white supremacist and racist call to arms directed directly at POC. Everywhere you look at the moment there are bloody nazi's and across America, at this time of crisis, for every good cop trying to do the right thing there are twenty of Trumps brown shirt equivalent trying to reign terror down on the nation. America is at a cross roads and these fuckers cannot be allowed to win. Blatant, disrespectful and done to wind up the citizenry to give them an excuse to beat down the citizenry... stupid nazi's could not be more transparent. Cause they are stupid and nazi's.

Socially acceptable white supremacy be like...



Great Graphic

White supremacy is a system of structural and societal racism which privileges white people over everyone else, regardless of the presence or absence of racial hatred. White racial advantages occur at both a collective and an individual level.

I thought this pyramid was a great check on unconscious privilege as well as a to do list of what not to do with some of the more covert ways of how people and systems can oppress even without actively realising it - even when as allies we try our best, auditing our behaviour every so often is never a bad plan. So I thought I would share it.

At this point America has an explicitly fascist President

If you are opposed to fighting fascism what does that make you?

Demonising the media, othering POC and killing them, othering immigrants, hiding from the people, calling anti-fascists terrorists but not white supremacists or the KKK, lying and demanding law and order while at the same time calling for people to be shot for stealing / protesting... because this administration believes that they own and can actively demand control over the lives of POC and, for them, it is blindly obvious, that inanimate things that the system owns are far more important to them that the animate beings that they believe they own. Could there be anything more fascist than that??? It is a literal definition of nazi be nazi. Is there anything that Trump has missed from the fascist playbook. I can't think of anything.

Trump and his enablers have done this. But the coup is not complete. If he wins in November though, that will be a different story. I think it may be too late then. I think at that point America will be heading for Gilead country... That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn't even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn't even an enemy you could put your finger on


Towards the end Hitler hid in his bunker, too.

As Trump took his cowardly arse down to the bunker Sunday because the protests outside the WH got too much for him to handle it created something of a conundrum.

Hunkering down and literally running to the bunker while the country is burning in howls of protest is the most terrible thing a President of the United States could do.
On the other hand, hunkering down and literally running to the bunker while the country is burning in howls of protest is the best thing Donald Trump could do.

No President is better than this President and I bet Germans were thinking the same thing by the end of the war as Hitler demonstrated his level of his evil cowardice by hunkering down and refusing to take any responsibility for what he had wrought. Bunkers and Nazis are a thing it seems.

And as Agolf Twitler himself once said:
