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....

Dunk on Trump. Fucking genius!!!!!!!

Named Dunk on Trump the game requires the player to do nothing more than hit the space bar until the character dunks the basketball right on top of Trump who is positioned right below the net.

The makers of the game clearly don't think the President's defensive game is up to much.
He writes:

This project isn't really a game, I just wanted to offer people the opportunity to slam dunk on Donald J. Trump.

I'm not a game dev at all, I hardly know what I'm doing but much like Donald Trump, I didn't let ignorance or lack of technical competence get in the way of my dreams, which is to let people vicariously dunk on Donald J. Trump.

Anyway, this is repetitive as sh** with no win condition but I'm hoping that someone out there will find my endless dunker perversely therapeutic and lose themselves 2 tha dunk, babyyyyy.

Christian publisher: Christians who reject Trump are like the Pharisees who plotted against Jesus

Appearing on the Focal Point radio program this week, the founder of the Christian magazine Charisma had an urgent message for his fellow Christians: When it comes to President Trump, dissent will not be tolerated.

While promoting his book God and Donald Trump, Steve Strang told host Alex McFarland that Christians who refuse to support Trump are much like the biblical “Pharisees in Jesus’ day” who plotted to undermine Jesus.

“Here he was, the promised Messiah, and these are the people who practice Jewish law better than anyone else and they just had a mindset against him and couldn’t see the truth,” Strang said. “A lot of people get a mindset, they think a certain way politically … and they just think that way and they don’t think for themselves.”


Delusional. History will judge these people badly


A Montana 'Handmaid's Tale': Local Prosecutor Calls for 'Immediate Crackdown' on Pregnant Drug and A

lcohol Users

A Montana prosecutor called this week for an "immediate crackdown" on women who use drugs or alcohol while pregnant, urging friends, family members, health care providers, and even strangers to turn in women they suspect to authorities. The prosecutor also warned drug- or alcohol-using pregnant women to "immediately self-report" to state health authorities to avoid criminal prosecution.

Even though there is zero scientific evidence supporting policies of coercion and punishment directed to pregnant women, some jurisdictions, mainly in the South, have taken to prosecuting women who give birth to children with drugs in their system. That's not good enough for Big Horn County Attorney Gerald Harris, who has concocted a toxic brew of right-wing, anti-choice, so-called fetal rights policies, and war on drugs ideology, along with a nice dollop of real-world racial disparity, to call for prosecuting pregnant women—and to go after them if they seek abortions to avoid prosecution.

In a Thursday press release, County Attorney Harris announced the crackdown, saying he will seek protection orders restraining pregnant women from any non-medically prescribed use of illicit drugs or alcohol, and those who violate the orders will be jailed to "incapacitate" them.


Just think if he was in France every single pregnant woman would be locked up!

UK Shadow Foreign Secretary: "He is an asteroid of awfulness that has fallen on this world. I think

that he is a danger and I think that he is a racist."

Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry has said she believes US president Donald Trump is a racist.

After a week in which Trump was accused of describing African nations as "shitholes" and cancelled a visit to London, the Labour MP told the BBC that the US president was "a danger" to the world.

"He is an asteroid of awfulness that has fallen on this world," Thornberry, the senior foreign affairs spokesperson of Britain's official opposition party, told BBC One's The Andrew Marr Show. "I think that he is a danger and I think that he is a racist."



Video Surfaces Of White Pizza Manager in Pittsburgh Viciously Beating a Black Woman

Video footage surfaced yesterday on Facebook of a black woman being viciously beaten in a Pittsburgh Pizza Milan by a white male manager. The woman is pinned up agains the wall, violently head butted, thrown down where she has her head slammed onto the ground repeatedly. .
The assault was obviously racially motivated. As Damon Young writes:

Of course, some people will look at this video and see that the manager was merely trying to contain a customer who was belligerent and might have been intoxicated and question why this is a “race” thing. These people are dumb.

But if you are one of these dumb people, imagine for a minute if this was a woman who looked like Tomi Lahren. (Or any other white woman you wish to imagine.) Do you think the manager would have treated her with the same level of ferocity and venom?


Trump Just Retweeted A White Nationalist Who Once Held Up A NASTY Sign About His Wife

Saturday night, Trump went on a virtual spree, at least for his account, of retweeting sympathetic messages. One of those retweets was of a man named Jack Posobiec, a self-aggrandizing Nazi wannabe who has been a Trump supporter since very early on — primarily because of the overtly racist tone of the Trump campaign. Trump likely knows, if he actually does follow Posobiec’s account and didn’t just happen to see the tweet elsewhere, that Jack is a white supremacist. It would be pretty unlikely for Trump to unknowingly follow more than one white supremacist account.


That’s right — Jack is the man behind the plan to smear anti-Trump protesters at one of his rallies by pretending to be one while holding up a sign that said “RAPE MELANIA” is giant block letters.


He is something fucking else
