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....

So, the white power president said this last night...

'We have a heritage, we have a history and we should learn from the history, and if you don't understand your history, you will go back to it again. You will go right back to it. You have to learn. Think of it, you take away that whole era and you're going to go back to it sometime. People won't know about it. They're going to forget about it. It's okay.' This is after retweeting a fucking old nasty nazi in Florida shouting out white power to BLM protesters. It is not even dog whistle at this point, it is in your face, shout out loud, white pride confederacy racism. Firstly, telling black people that their demands for statues of slave owners to be abolished will result in their enslavement is both so ridiculous and so insulting that it is breath-taking in its offensiveness. Secondly, Trump knows exactly what he is saying and revels in its lack of coherence and the utter absurdity of what he is saying. Thirdly, he is talking to a base that would quite happily take America back to the confederacy and ergo the plantation era. Finally, he knows he cannot win the black vote, so a hugely obvious part of his election strategy is to stoke up a race war. At the risk of stating the obvious, this racist President has to go.

Ladies it is time to start the Emily Pankhurst rant

Every election year I do the same thing, I find as many young women as possible and talk to them about how first wave feminists fought to give them the right to vote. How 100 years later if they do not vote, it somewhat negates the fact that the emancipation movement starved themselves and died to ensure we could vote. This year, more than any other election, we the second and third wave feminists need to be having that conversation with every young woman we know and meet every day until election day. Those young women who do not understand, and granted, many do, how their reproductive rights are at real risk in this election need to be educated on this. We need to talk to these young women as much as we can about how they can effect change. They will be the fourth wave; we already see them forming.

Now this is an idea the entire progressives interwebs should get behind



There a lot of innocent women out there who happen to be called Karen. I am sure that most of them don't mind the current 'Karen' movement because they are not 'Karen's'. However as we have an actual 'Karen', who supports and enables the white supremacist in chief, it seems very fitting that 'Karen' is renamed Ivanka. Doing an Ivanka...Splendid idea and I wish I had thought of it.

Enough is enough. Time for him and his enablers to do one.

Never evoke me again

To be fair the Finnish Prime Minister is not wrong about the Traitor in Chief



And as I posted earlier:

Not only has he done NOTHING to sanction Putin's Russia over these contemptible acts of violence he has, since he was briefed on this, had a cosy chat with Putin and has tried to insist that Russia be invited back into the G7 ... to repeat... AFTER he knew that Russia paid the Taliban to target and execute American Troops (and some bounties were paid) he lobbied loudly to allow a country who paid for the execution of American soldiers to be allowed access to the most exclusive club in the world.

And funny and sad. This is how the world sees America. November cannot come to soon.

They are traitors to America, pure and simple

In yet another disgusting example of geopolitical game play coming out of Russia we are told that Russia paid the Taliban bounties for killing American troops in Afghanistan. Putin is a totalitarian wanker, we know this, this is exactly the shit he pulls. BUT the fact that the White House has known about this for months and done bugger all about it is a shocking betrayal of America. It is not surprising that Trump would rather sit on this, not great optics - I mean even with his most base of base, standing by and doing nothing to stop American soldiers being executed by Russia by proxy should be a step to far. But for the utter horror show that is the Trump Administration that is of course not enough of a demonstration of the utter contempt with which they hold the American people. Not only has he done NOTHING to sanction Putin's Russia over these contemptible acts of violence he has, since he was briefed on this, had a cosy chat with Putin and has tried to insist that Russia be invited back into the G7 ... to repeat... AFTER he knew that Russia paid the Taliban to target and execute American Troops (and some bounties were paid) he lobbied loudly to allow a country who paid for the execution of American soldiers to be allowed access to the most exclusive club in the world.

He has always been a traitor and a democracy destroyer. But this example must surely drive this point home to those who somehow still defend him... if they still stand by him after this, they to are traitors.
