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....

Being wrong won't kill you. Refusing to admit it might kill others.



This.

To be sure, democracy is going to make it after all.

With Josh Hawley going all fascistic coup attempt – when he knows it is a complete bollocks, the republican party is officially dead, even if it manages to pull itself along like a zombie with its legs chopped off, from the walking dead, for the foreseeable. Hawley by stating that he's going to be the one to try and stop the democratic election of President-elect Joe Biden when it comes times for the Electoral College to finalize the 2020 election, has put the final nail in the coffin of any legitimacy the party thought they might still be able to invoke. As he positions himself as a post Trump presidential candidate of the future, Hawley is obviously setting the scene for challenging any future election result if he loses, even as he knows his attempt this time round will fail bigly… But surprise, surprise – fascists hate democracy.

I have thoughts on this. You see we all decry the idea of what if another Trump comes along but with smarts to make any further coup attempt not only look more reasonable, but have a greater likelihood of success, but that ignores one vital piece of the post Trump era republican electorate puzzle. Why do we assume that the cult wants or would vote for someone with ‘smarts’ – that which is the very thing they despise? Why would the morons who still cling to idea that Trump won even in the face of all evidence to the contrary, want to vote for someone with a bigger brain than that of the idiot in chief? After all the fact that he lacks any policy ideas and is unintelligible and inarticulate has never been a weak point for Trump - his base does not love him despite that, but because of it. All those would-be democracy destroyers – like Hawley [coming out of the gate with indecent haste] - that supposedly articulate Trumps positions better than he does, and therefore can appeal to his base 2024 is a lot of nonsense. The cult love Trump because he's just as crass, senseless, empathy free, intolerant, and insufferable as they are – a slicker fascist is unlikely to cut it with this crowd and ergo Hawley should not assume that the cult will see him as Trump version two, after all Trump deliberately courted the people that are least likely to ever turn back to the ‘elites’ in any future election – and that is all the republicans have. RIP Wankers. LOL. To be sure, democracy is going to make it after all.


'This Is No Time for Playing Politics': Mike Pence, on Ski Vacation, Defends Trump, on Golf Vacation

Over Biden’s Criticism of Slow Covid Vaccine Rollout

Vice President Mike Pence offered a public defense for his boss, President Donald Trump, over the increasingly alarming lack of progress in Covid inoculations of Americans, as both were spending their holidays at respective vacation spots.
—-

“Operation Warp Speed is on track to distribute 20 Million doses of Coronavirus Vaccine by next week,” Pence claimed. “Millions of Americans have been vaccinated and we are working with States every day to vaccinate millions more. This is no time for playing politics!”

Apart from the fact they having been playing politics with the pandemic since day one, do they have any idea how tone deaf they sound? Always amazing the framing of the mendacious - Republicans being bad at their jobs be like "not a time for playing politics" but any circumstances that put democrats in a bad light, even as they are invariably grounded in right wing media is always the best time to play politics for the righties, even as people go hungry and fall ill and die. The economic fallout of the pandemic, for the republic is one big game, so as Pence accuses Biden of playing politics with the Pandemic, Moscow Mitch be like...



Playing politics my arse.

He looks like your typical very right wing cause Jebus chap on Twitter, but he was not a COVID denying, masks are evil wing nut... but this is what you get when you hang your petard with a death cult. But hey...

‘Owning’ the libs one death at a time...

Death to 2020





Pretty much sums up the shit show that Trump / Johnson incompetent and careless populism encompassed. Mendacity, nepotism, white rich privilege fucking everyone over cause Power, Wealth, Brexit and Bollocks.
Genius @Coldwar_Steve

Sedition



He should be the first, because of the position he once held and the gravitas that bestows, but certainly not the last...

He will never own it... BUT



Heh. Will never own it ....BUT

I've been working out, my muscles are strong...



After four years of Misogynist in Chief and a male pale and stale administration who has actively worked to dismantle reproductive justice and side line women this poem seems apropos to the time we find ourselves in. All those anti-feminists who have been leading the charge over the last four years, the religious right, the Republicans, the Trump Cartel, the incels, the Proud Boys, the voters of a sexual assaulter... Biff. Baff. Uppercut.

BOO!!!!

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.


All for no purpose but a malignant ego...



Trumps latest tweet be like:



Who the fuck is he trying to kid? He does not give a shit about stimulus checks he just wants to burn it all down and damn whoever gets caught in the process. As Stalin famously once said...''The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic.'' The harsh reality is that to Trump the death and hardship of even one is just a statistic. He literally does not give a shit about anyone or anything other than his own survival.

By adding yet another barrier to getting agreement on this stimulus deal being voted through - even as republicans seemed to be moving towards agreeing a 2K payment, you can see his vile cogwheels working over time.... ' I know, what the hell... lets add ANOTHER 2k to ensure they back down from reaching a deal across the aisle.' With a side smattering of racist bollocks. Nothing but a malignant disruptor. Playing golf while America burns. What a peach of a malignant ego...

But leechlike to their fainting country cling...

In all of the ironies Shelley was talking about mad King George and his waste of space offspring...
