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, we're not saying 'Black Lives Matter more'. We are saying Black Lives Matter as much.

Biff, Baff, Uppercut, to the whole nonsense of 'white lives matter' racist bollocks!

The Trump administration is now being sued for allowing healthcare workers to refuse to treat trans

patients

A coalition of LGBT+ medical clinics are suing the Trump administration for removing discrimination protections for trans people in healthcare settings that mean doctors can refuse to treat trans patients.

The Trump administration announced the rollback of healthcare protections for trans patients on June 12, the fourth anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

This reversed changes to federal guidelines made by Barack Obamaís administration in 2016, which expanded sex-based protections in healthcare to include gender identity.

LGBT+ clinics and organisations are suing to block the rule, which was issued by The Department of Health and Human Services.

The cruelty is the whole point. So in the middle of a frigging Pandemic, they want to let Doctors refuse to treat someone who is trans? And announcing it on the anniversary of the worst massacre of the LGBTQI+ community on American soil? They are so fucking hideous it is untrue. This will be struck down -apart from anything else SCOTUS has set a precedent on this with the LGBTQI+ employment rights decision - but in the meantime it is great to see what the priorities in the Health Department are when there are over 120,000 dead in 4 months. These decision makers who enable this shameful bigotry need to be named and shamed and shunned when Trump is booted out. There can be no quarter. People who are instinctively this cruel should have no place in normal society.

Psychological Projection Be Like...



The upside down opposite lie is truth world of Trump ALL OF THE TIME. Between that and the gaslighting he is mentally exhausting.
He and his ilk are so used to actively projecting their bollocks they actually have fallen for their own hype. Look at Junior tweeting yesterday about replacing Monuments that are being torn down with statues of Trump. Good flipping grief. Monuments are being torn down because in the most part they glorify racists. So Jr suggests that they get placed by the biggest frigging racist in America, gas-lighting America while projecting onto peaceful protesters that they are rioters... heh. 'Very fine people on both sides'


The Biggest and Deadliest Whopper of Them All



Heh.

We need @JoeBiden . We need a mensch.

From Rabbi Michael Beals of Delaware :

"The story Iím about to share with you about Joe Biden is special -- in fact, Iím fairly certain Iím the only living person left who actually witnessed it firsthand.

If you do one thing today, take the time to click on the link and read the whole thread. It is heart warming in a profound way.


'Your name will be a synonym for losing, failure and weakness'



Now that is a take down. I have to disagree with the last sentence though, the fat old fucker will not be playing golf, he will be sitting in solitary fucking himself.

Speaker Pelosi: Senate Republicans are 'trying to get away with murder -- the murder of George Floyd'

ďAnd so, in other words, for something to happen, theyíre going to have to face the realities of police brutality, and the reality of the need for justice in policing, and the recognition that there are many, many good people in law enforcement, but not all, and that we have to address those concerns. So, when they admit that and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration ó but so far they were trying to get away with murder, actually. The murder of George Floyd,Ē Pelosi said.

BOOM. Exactly what they are trying to do. Maintain the status quo while trying to pretend not to. White Supremacists do not care one jot for the lynchings of black people - it is in their job description. Since the end of slavery they are complicit in the violence and brutality to subjugate black people and they really do not want it to end.

You know how this government loves a slogan rather than governing...

...well I have thought of one that actually represents what they are doing rather than sloganeering
