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....

Trump Predictably Rages About Renewed NFL Protests



President Donald Trump weighed in on NFL anthem protests as a number of players knelt, raised their fists or stayed in the dressing room during the national anthem as the league’s pre-season gets underway. Trump’s claim that players are “unable to define” what they are protesting is a solid demonstration of his complete disinterest in finding out anything about the protests.

I wonder what government agency he is planning to gut today while everyone is looking over here?

I'm not saying all of Trump's supporters are stupid...not that I couldn't

Heh - a lucid and valid point!

Enough With the Shit, Green Party. The Coming Midterms Are Too Important for Your Shenanigans



Ohio’s congressional special election on Tuesday between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor is so close that less than 1 percent separates the winner from the eventual loser. While the race is essentially a practice run for November midterms, it was a prime opportunity to send a strong message to the Trump administration. A Democratic victory in Ohio, a state Trump won handily in the 2016 presidential election, would signal to Trump that America is tired of his bullshit.

Enter: Green Party candidate Joe Manchik.
----------
Joe Manchik couldn’t even remember his own fucking website! And yet, Joe Manchik is also responsible for winning over 1,100 votes, or some 0.6 percent of votes that probably would have gone to O’Connor.

And that’s my biggest beef with the Green Party; your LaVar Ball-ish sideshow shit is taking votes from viable Democratic candidates who are actually trying to implement change.

You only get to vote for the third party guy if you are so steeped in some kind of privilege the impact of trump and a republican house and senate will not actually have a negative impact on you economically.... if you are not that then you are an eejit, at best

Omarosa says Trump is a racist who uses N-word - and claims there's tape to prove it

Donald Trump is a “racist” who has used the “N-word” repeatedly, Omarosa Manigault Newman, once the most prominent African American in the White House, claims in a searing memoir.

The future US president was caught on mic uttering the taboo racial slur “multiple times” during the making of his reality TV show The Apprentice and there is a tape to prove it, according to Manigault Newman, citing three unnamed sources.
-----------------
She also claims that she personally witnessed Trump use racial epithets about the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway, who is half Filipino. “Would you look at this George Conway article?” she quotes the president as saying. “F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo.”

Both flip and goo-goo are terms of racial abuse for Filipinos.

One has to wonder why she stuck around for so long based on this - but at the same time, the fact that she did does not make the accusations any less true IMO

Succinct and too the point!




hehe - genius!

Bad intentions indeed
