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....

Remind me how many people got arrested actually while insurrecting on the 6th Jan?

Compare and contrast

Graphic mine

One thing is very different from the other thing.
White supremacy be like hold my beer white privilege… heh.

''I won't be scolded...''

If not an active ally, then at best men are passive participants in misogyny and violence of language and deed against women.

Their arrogance and privilege lead them to believe there are no consequences to their authoritarian


They need to be shown otherwise.

Last week was quite the week for the neo-GOP:

Madison Cawthorn trying to smuggle a gun onto a plane, acting like a brat on the house floor more than once, with the overtop declaration that Nancy is not God being a *tad* hyperbolic. Oh, and let’s arrest Fauci. Good grief.

Moving on to Kev. Threatening violence against Nancy by whacking her over the head with a gavel. Hilarious!!! Whines that Nancy has somehow ‘broken’ congress because she would not allow his Nazi’s to sit on the commission, and proudly announced that he was more than happy to completely ignore the suffering of the Capital Hill police by refusing to watch their testimony, as did McTurtle.

Jim Banks denies the heart felt testimony to the commission, suggesting that Nancy scripted them and that it was performance art.

Jim Jordan getting himself VERY confused about when he spoke to Trump on the day of the insurrection. Truly funny.

Some of the very special ones, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Louie Gohmert where blocked from entering DC jail while trying to visit some of the domestic terrorists involved in the insurrection. Because of course they did.

And that is all just from the top of my head and of course I could go on.

Distract, deflect, performative politics. There is nothing behind any of it which is why they continue to act with such impunity and with no shame whatsoever. There have been no consequences to their actions over the last few years and it has emboldened them. They have no grand plan, no foresight, no great strategic vision. Everything is said and done in the moment and everyone will continue to suffer from their utter self-centred stupidity until they get legally spanked for their transgressions.

Just sayin’

Are the wheels finally coming off the clown car?

This has been a hell of a week for Mein Trump

• Trump tax returns on the way to congress. Check
• Trump told his toadies to sack the infrastructure bill and they ignored him. Check
• Trump endorsed candidate in Texas loses bigly. Check.
• Trumps seditious conspiracy to overturn the election has been confirmed by the DoJ, with evidence. Check.

Loss of power? Potentially. Legal woes? Definitely.

For a bonus wobble Trump and the kids don’t get to hide the details of their involvement in a fraudulent pyramid scheme (popcorn time when it finally gets to court!), and all against the backdrop of the commission exposing MAGA legislators for the horror filled shitshow they are.

I know the most committed of the cult will see all of this and think it nought, but for the rest that still cling the carcass of the republican party, surely the clown car is starting to look for shaky indeed.
