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....

Government insists the Army will just be there to help people celebrate all the post-Brexit winning

The thousands of troops who are being deployed to the streets of Britain will just be there to let off party-poppers, Boris Johnson’s cabinet has confirmed.

The government has insisted that the sight of armed soldiers on Britain’s streets should not be a cause for alarm, nor an indicator that Brexit isn’t going quite as well as hoped, but instead to instil a sense of patriotic celebration of the countless wins of a no-deal Brexit.

“People seem to be obsessed with chalking every little hiccup up to Brexit, instead of being immensely thankful to live in a country that has fully taken back control.”

He said, “The troops are there merely to hang out bunting, set off party poppers and fireworks, and maybe do a bit of cake baking for all the street parties that should definitely be happening right now as we experience the wonderful results of telling all the EU workers to go back to their own countries.”

He went on, “It’ll be brilliant, just like the spirit of the Blitz that everyone seemed to go on about.

Satire, but not.



Meanwhile headline in the Daily Mail this morning because all of the ironies...



It was never go to end well. Can we say we told you so yet?


'Stay in your hood': White 'Karen' fired after allegedly assaulting Black couple at Brooklyn dog

park

"At the dog park in Brooklyn with my fiancé and this white woman was threatening to call police and told us to 'stay in our hood' because she had our dog confused with another dog who had been barking loudly," Joseph wrote above the video on Twitter. "So, I started recording and she tried to slap the phone out my hand."

The video shows the woman giving Joseph the middle finger and swiping at his phone.

"Stay in our hood? You just told us to leave the dog park and stay in our hood?" Joseph asks the woman in the video.

-----

"I hope Emma learns from this," he added. "I hope that other people learn from this who engage in abusive, racist and destructive behavior, because ultimately, whether Emma lost her job or not, it doesn't take away the trauma that my fiancee and I have. It doesn't take away the feeling of feeling like anything racist can happen anywhere, so I don't think people should be coddled, and I do think that consequences are important, so hopefully this is a learning lesson for everybody."

When are such types going to realise that in the 21st Century acting out your white privileged racism, in diverse communities has consequences? Oh and the interwebs.

The press has a duty to tell this story.

This kind of framing of the Supreme Court largely absolves Mitch McConnell, his allies, the justices, and their unprecedented actions. There is a cause and effect and these are the central players in the drama. The press has a duty to tell this story.


Of course public approval of SCOTUS has been eroded...
MAGA Trump far right cray cray in control of the court, through a programme of delaying, lying and cheating by McConnell. People aren't stupid. The court is now a partisan vehicle of the far right and McConnell should proudly own that. He has worked very hard to smash the third branch and build it back in his own fascist likeness. As the court makes more and more far right theocratic decisions that fly in the face of democracy, and in direct contradiction to the wishes of the American people who voted overwhelmingly for NOT THAT. Next election everyone needs to be reminded that SCOTUS is now a partisan vehicle of the far right because the far right appointed Trumpy's have made it so, constitution be damned, and that as rights are eroded McConnell enabled them. Horror shit show. MSM needs to do its job better.

Cause patriarchy wants us to thank them...

Insurrectionists Like Trump Cannot Be Allowed To Escape Justice



Now hanging Trump @ the Washington Arsenal might be overkill, LOL, but there has to be repercussions, these right wing democracy stealers are on manoeuvres and just locking up the foot soldiers will not deter them from their oh so very nazi mission.

'bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, absolute pile'

Angela Rayner at the Labour Party Conference last night: 'We cannot get any worse than a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, absolute pile …of banana republic…Etonian…piece of scum…and I held back a little…that I have ever seen in my life”

Don't hold back there Angie...

Angela Rayner this morning after much faux outrage from the homophobic, racist, misogynistic you not me charlatans that run the country:

She's not wrong... telling it as it is in this new far right world we inhabit. And to fair she is on fire at the moment. Really coming into her own.




Brexit is the...



Panic buy, don't panic buy, food shortages, what shortages? Heh

Leeds this morning and duplicated up and down the land.



So the sun lit uplands are queuing for hours to fill your tank at a forecourt near you, because you have zero confidence that when Boris says don't panic buy you should just chill... and still the faithful defend him.

Well that's a new one...



What about all the poor saps he grifts from, who pay for his private jet... what about when they fly steerage on commercial? Mark of the Beast they have 👀

Don't be an Aunt Ella, Joe.

Patriarchy trying to purchase female autonomy with a dinner, it was ever thus. Depressing that this is still as relevant in 2021...heh.
