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....

Happy New Year Everyone

Just over 10 minutes to New Year here in old blighty. The champagne is chilling, and I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy new year. We know that we are living in turbulent times. The news is bleak every single day, BUT new decade must bring new hope. I COMMAND it, dammit.

So here is hoping for a decade where progressive values win the day against dark forces.
Here is hoping for a decade when we can right the wrongs of the last few years.
Here is hoping for a decade when ethics and moral promises overtake avarice and injustice in how our countries work.
Here is hoping for a decade when hope wins

It has been the worst of years, may the new year bring us personal happiness and community wide peace.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

Pure Poison.



Uugghhh
Horrible poisonous wanker. Period.

We get closer and closer to a banana republic each day @realdonaldtrump stays in office.

The State Department ran a full blown investigation to find out who at the US Embassy in Brussels liked a Chelsea Clinton tweet.


Team Trump’s Furious Hunt to Find Out Who ‘Liked’ a Chelsea Clinton Tweet

“If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother, as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!,” Trump said.

Clinton shot back: “It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.”

That tweet garnered more than half a million likes, including by the account for the U.S. mission to the European Union. That kickstarted a weeks-long investigation, prompted by the secretary’s office, into who exactly at the Brussels mission had access to the Twitter account and hit “Like” on Clinton’s tweet, according to two former U.S. officials

Like all good wannabee dictators he has a terribly thin skin. Oh and if you work for the state...

One step away from the Ministry of Truth
“The most gifted of [the Proletariate], who might possibly become a nuclei of discontent, are simply marked down by the Thought Police and eliminated.” ― George Orwell, 1984



Not just the destruction of words but the destruction of freedom of thought if he got his way.

You can feel the revisionism picking up speed in real time...



They are counting on people having short memories, most do... and the levels of tolerance for hate filled actions increase.



All of this. Same in the UK where hate crimes have multiplied ridiculously since Brexit.



Heh, racist nazi wankers.

I wouldn't have wasted my time on Trump, says Greta Thunberg

Teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg said on Monday that talking to U.S. President Donald Trump at a United Nations summit on global warming would have been a waste of time since he would not have paid any attention.
----
Asked what she would have said to the president if they had spoken, Thunberg said: “Honestly, I don’t think I would have said anything because obviously he’s not listening to scientists and experts, so why would he listen to me?

“So I probably wouldn’t have said anything, I wouldn’t have wasted my time,”
she said.

More sense than him and his cabinet put together!

And this is sooooo cool

What happened when... @GretaThunberg met David Attenborough for the first time?


Two exceptional people having a lovely chat about something that is so important.

Marvellous!!!!!! Gives one hope I think.

At this point he's just rubbing his treachery in democracy's face...

Putin’s friend Alex Ovechkin spends Christmas Eve with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago resort


He thinks he can get away with literally anything. They are not even trying to hide their collusion with Russia. Brazen in your face they don't care bollocks. Everyday he provides new evidence for further articles of impeachment. Ridiculous!

I cannot decide but my skin is thin in this game...

I do not have a vote in this game. But I have deep ties in America – we have owned a family property in the States since the early 1990’s, so state and property taxes burn every year! Heh (Oh, and if Trump starts a world war we are all fucked). So, I want to throw my hat in the ring behind a democratic contender. Still sitting on the fence at this point seems a tad blah. BUT, as an outsider who sits inside sometimes I cannot come to a definitive choice. I think part of it stems from the UK general election result, there is a message there I believe about how far you can push social democratic policies in working class areas. Also, part of it comes from who I realistically think can change key votes in key states, and part of it comes from wanting to believe in better rather than settling for the status quo. I hate to say it, but settling could be a win, more than asking small c conservative and small d democrat to go big and go hard. I don’t know. I cannot decide. I just pray that whoever you all decide to vote for can get rid of the monster currently doing his best to destroy democracy in the White House.

The candidates all have their strengths. I will leave you with something I posted in October, cause really… whoever is nominated, as long as they kick his arse… it will be grand…

I hear the wave a comin', It's blowin' 'round the bend


Cartoonist: Bart van Leeuwen

I hear the wave a comin'
It's blowin' 'round the bend
And I ain't seen compassion
Since, I don't know when
I'm stuck inside Trumps Treason
And time keeps draggin' on
But that wave keeps a-rollin'
On down to Election Day 2020 when the wave is going to kick frigging arse!


Lyrics me. Apologies to Johnny Cash.. hehe

No matter who..... Vote BLUE!!!!

The in your face actual Nazi Nazi is just the tip of a very nasty iceberg



MAGATs treading nasty racist nazi water... Heh

Loving the fetus is easy, loving the living is not...when your soul is dead or evil or both..



Exactly this
Oh and they hate women having agency...

Is there anything more pathetic than being willing to kill for or die for Donald Trump?

Per Herndon, one “Trumpstock” visitor, Mark Villalta, said that “Nothing less than a civil war would happen,” if Trump is not re-elected, reaching for his handgun and adding, “I don’t believe in violence, but I’ll do what I got to do.”

*Ahem*



When it comes to it, although they are revolting they will not revolt. Not enough of them to make a difference anyway...

So worth dying for? Right? Trumpsters be like...


Hehe. Delusional Idiots.
