Farage Silent When It Comes To Brexiter Intimidation & Violence

Far-right Yellow Vest gammon fuckwit James Goddard was last month given a suspended after having back in January harassed & intimidated Pro-Remain MP Anna Soubry outside parliament, a 64-year-old year old man was jailed last Friday after making death threats against 6 MPs who he believed were ‘anti-Brexit’, a 59-year-old man was jailed today for conducting an online campaign of terror against anti-Brexit MP Heidi Allen, these are just the latest high profile cases of politicians being subjected to harassment/intimidation for opposing Brexit.

It’s not just MPs who have been subjected to harassment/threats/intimidation from for opposing Brexit, a couple living in Hampshire had their house vandalised after they put up Pro-Remain posters in the windows of their house & I doubt this couple having the windows of their home smashed after putting up Pro Remain posters is an isolated incident when it comes to hate-crimes being perpetuated against ordinary citizens who oppose Brexit, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to find there’s day in & day out on the streets of Britain private citizens who oppose Brexit being subjected to an increasing amount of hate-crimes involving intimidation & violence which is in fact largely going unreported.

Nigel Farage gets a milkshake chucked at him by some anarchist wanker during the European Election campaign & he’s too shit scared to get off the Brexit Party campaign bus for the remainder of the election campaign. Of course Farage’s obsessive Brexiter far-right racist gammon supporters got their panties in a serious bind about him getting milkshake chucked at him by some anarchist, making out that it was vicious & reprehensible act of political violence & the manner in which they went on about this you might have been mistaken to have thought it was some militant Marxist revolutionary who had tried to full on assassinate him, oh & naturally they attempted to blamed all those of us on the left of somehow condoning such behaviour which is simply not true, yet we hear no condemnation from either Farage or any member of his Brexit Party cult or from their Brexiter far-right racist gammon support when it comes to MPs opposing Brexit being subjected to death threats or the homes Pro-Remain supporters being vandalised or any kind of Brexiter political violence.

Nigel Farage on his radio show no doubt feeding his supporters with foul violent ideas

It’s not as if there isn’t ample opportunity in this the age of mass media in which we now live in for Nigel Farage or any other Brexit Party spokesperson to condemn anybody who opposes Brexit being subjected to harassment/threats/intimidation, I mean for fucks sake Nigel Farage never fucking ceases to be perpetually a feature of the fucking news media & thus has a media platform to condemn political violence which is being motivated by Brexit, but rather then condemn MPs being subjected to death threats & windows of houses occupied by Pro-Remain supporters being smashed he’s been in the news media applauding Donald Trump for again being a racist gobshite. Yes Farage has been the news media praising Trump for espousing racist shite, you know the kind of racist shite which inspired a White supremacist to kill 22 people last weekend at a Walmart store in El Paso, okay we don’t have political violence here in the UK on the scale there is in places such as the United States, but this is no thanks to Nigel Farage & his brand of stochastic terrorist bullshit with him saying he’d pick up a rifle if he doesn’t get the kind of Brexit he wants & threatening to attack journalist Jon Snow & the myriad of other shite thus helping to encourage harassment/threats/intimidation & violence towards those who disagree with him & his supporters, well I’ve long said Nigel Farage behind the veneer of respectability which he spins is a rotten to the fucking core fascist & well he’s reinforcing all I’ve said about him being a fucking fascist by not condoning fascistic tactics but in fact encouraging such fascistic tactics to further his political goals.

We might not currently have here in the UK the scale of political violence we regularly see in the United States, but let me remind all that we’ve already seen one MP murdered by a far-right terrorist & one is already one too many & we could see more fatal incidents as we saw with Jo Cox particularly if people either ignore or tolerate any kind of violence due to Brexit, in other fucking words there needs to be is zero fucking tolerance of any kind of threat or intimidation or violent act by the far-right when it comes to Brexit because if they get away at spitting at somebody who opposes Brexit next they’ll think they can get away with stabbing a Remain supporter, oh & Nigel Farage needs to be made to take responsibility for putting foul ideas in the heads of his unhinged ignorant supporters with his stochastic terrorist rhetoric. Yes I fucking said it, I said those sending death threats to MP for oppose Brexit & smashing the windows of houses where Pro-Remain supporters live, those who engage in any kind harassment or intimidation or threatening behaviour & violence against those who oppose Brexit are more than likely supporters of Nigel Farage, I mean you know if you ask any of these Brexiter gammon bullies which political figure they support they’re going to say Nigel Farage.

The Far-Right Response To The El Paso Mass Shooting

Whenever there’s a terrorist atrocity committed by Islamic fundamentalists you will never cease hearing far-right trolling mothefuckers such as Tommy Robinson or Carl Benjamin loudly denounce Islam as being the devil incarnate threat to western civilisation & endlessly criticize the Muslim community & bang the racist drum for all Muslims to be deported from our shores, yet when a White supremacist commits a terrorist atrocity as happened this past weekend in the Texan city of El Paso where a White supremacist scumbag terrorist shot dead 22 people & injured 20 plus others at a Walmart store, Carl Benjamin posts a video in the aftermath saying we need to empathise & understand why young White males are carrying out such mass shootings because maybe they have legitimate grievances. The El Paso mass shooting being carried out by a White supremacist scumbag fuck, this isn’t the first time Carl ‘rape tweet guy’ Benjamin has posted a video on YouTube in which he reprehensibly attempts to justify nazi cunts going on killing sprees as a sneaky but utterly crass means of attempting to move the Overton-Window further to the far-right, he did likewise following the mosque shooting in the New Zealand city of Christchurch earlier this year, oh & by the way neither the latest video where Benjamin is repugnantly justifying the far-right terrorist attack in El Paso or his previous video repugnantly justifying the mosque attack in Christchurch have been demonetised, what the fuck YouTube I thought you were going to demonetise all Carl Benjamin’s videos due to him being rape tweet guy, YouTube are you sure your advertisers are going to like having their products associated with videos espousing ‘hug a nazi terrorist because they’ve legitimate grievances’ whether those nazi terrorists have killed 20 or 50 innocent people.

Carl Benjamin

As ever with Alex Jones it was the usual antisemitic bullshit we’ve heard time again from the bigoted hatemongering shock-jock propagator of fake news in the aftermath of just about every horrific mass shooting there’s been in the United States over the past few years, which of course is the bullshit it’s a false flag prelude for us commie Jews to come steal his guns. We’ve indeed heard the same bullshit time again from Jones in the aftermath of every mass shooting to hit the headlines from the Aurora theatre mass shooting & Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 to the Parkland High School shooting in 2018 to now in 2019 with the mass shootings in El Paso & Dayton, Jones propagating these are false flag events with the objective of being used as an excuse for the ‘globalists’ to come steal his & his ignorant redneck wacko listenership arsenals of firearms, yet after Sandy Hook through to Parkland there’s been no massive gun coinvestigation orchestrated by the US government, in fact there’s been fuck all gun control legislation enacted in response to any of these mass shootings, yet despite this Jones keeps on getting away with profiting from propagating the same fake ‘the feds are coming for our guns’ bullshit after every horrific mass shooting because sadly yes there are rednecks in the flyover states who are that ignorant.

Alex Jones

The only mass shooting where response from Alex Jones was somewhat different was back in 2016 when 50 people were murdered at an Orlando LGBTQ nightclub, he then claimed it was the fault of the LGBTQ community for being anti-gun, oh did I neglect to mention Jones as well as being antisemitic & generally racist/xenophobic is also a misogynist & rabidly homophobic/transphobic. Hmm I wonder what most reasonably minded rational people would find more disturbing two people of the same gender identity loving one another or Jones the mass shooter’s favourite shock-jock who constantly uses his talk radio show to push stochastic terrorism against various sections of society coupled with fetishizing the Second Amendment because he’s a bigoted gunsexual buffoon who can’t get sexually aroused unless he’s fondling an AR-15 assault rifle. 

Candice Keller is GOP Ohioan state representative who has blamed ‘transgenders & homosexual marriage & drag queen advocates’ for the mass shooting in El Paso & the subsequent mass shooting in Deyton.

(Please excuse the interlude whilst Sophia bangs her head repeatedly on her desk)

I’m not going to dignify Keller’s attention seeking homophobic/transphobic Westboro Baptist type bullshit with a response, other to say along with Donald Trump blaming videogames for mass shootings occurring at the frequency they’re happening in the United States it’s symptomatic of the dance of denial & deflection going on in avoidance of tackling root cause as to why mass shootings keep on happening in the United States something which I’ve already covered in the previous article to this one.

Maybe it’s not videogames which Donald Trump should be blaming for the El Paso mass shooting but himself & the racist shite he’s said, considering the White supremacist terrorist nazi scum fuck who killed 22 people in El Paso this past weekend quoted racist shite Trump has said over the past few years about Mexicans in their ‘manifesto’ as to why they were going to go on a murderous rampage in a city near US border with Mexico, in other words this nazi scum fuck went on a killing spree because he had a sickening hatred for Mexican immigrants to the point he wanted to kill them all & he used quotes of racist shite said by Donald Trump as means of supporting his killing spree.

Katie Hopkins

Donald Trump has in the recent past endorsed shite professional hatemonger Katie Hopkins has tweeted, I’m currently unaware if the most vile of vile bigoted cunts has tweeted or said anything in response to the El Paso & Dayton mass shootings, but the reason I mention Hopkins is that if any far-right hatemongering troll is sickeningly reprehensible enough to blame the victims or blame immigrants for these most recent mass shootings it’s fucking Katie Hopkins, because Hopkins already has form in espousing such repugnant bullshit in similar circumstances when in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue last October she blamed the “Chief Rabbi & his support for mass migration”.

The Dance Of Denial & Deflection

In the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso & Dayton this past weekend, for President Trump to be blaming videogames for the reason there are mass shootings the United States is just symptomatic of the dance of denial & deflection there is about the route cause as to why there are mass shootings happening in the United States at the frighteningly regularity they seem to be happening these days.  

Donald Trump dancing the dance of denial & deflection in blaming videogames for mass shootings in the United States

Nothing new for politicians on the right of the political spectrum in the United States to be blaming metal music or videogames as a means of denial & deflection as to why mass shootings are such a frequent occurrence in the United States. Hey if Donald Trump or any other rightwing politician in the United States are going to blame Marilyn Manson & Grand Theft Auto for mass shootings being such a frequent occurrence in the United States, fuck it why not blame the fucking Teletubbies because aren’t there nutty rightwing Christian fundamentalists who reckon the Teletubbies are a satanic influence on the young & because it’s just as a ludicrous means of bullshit denial & deflection to blame the Teletubbies as it is to blame Marilyn Manson & Grand Theft Auto as to why there are mass shootings. The reason I know it’s just ludicrous bullshit with no foundation what so fucking ever for political right in the United States to be blaming either the likes of Marilyn Manson for mass shootings as has happened in the past particularly with the Columbine High School massacre or now with the blame being put on videogames for mass shootings becoming such a far more regular horrific occurrence in the United States, is due to the fact that here in the UK plenty of people listen to Marilyn Manson & metal music as well as play videogames such as Grand Theft Auto or Doom or Mortal Kombat yet we very rarely have mass shootings on the scale there are mass shootings in the United States, hmm I wonder why the fuck that it is, nah it couldn’t be because we have extremely strict gun control laws.

Oh how fucking dare I imply the root cause for mass shootings happening at such a frightening frequency in the United States be lax gun control laws enabling emotionally unstable individuals with grievances to have easy access to firearms, how dare I blaspheme against the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution ‘the right to bear arms’ the most holy of holy amendments of the US Constitution & not blame Heavy Metal & videogames or anything which doesn’t fit in with a bigoted conservative waspy perspective of how America ought to be despite the fact that First Amendment of the US Constitution is meant to guarantee the US government make no law to abridge freedom of speech & so shouldn’t those conservatives who say they are strict constitutionalists be just as fastidious in defending free speech & free expression you know defending heavy metal musicians & videogame creators as they in using the Second Amendment in preventing the US Congress or state legislators enacting gun control laws no matter how common sense those gun control laws happen to be.  

Donald Trump blaming videogames for mass shootings was kind of reminiscent to me of when the Chief Executive of the National Rifle Association Wayne LaPierre held a press conference in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 blaming videogames pretty much in the same manner for Sandy Hook & other mass shootings, as I said above nothing new in conservative nutcases blaming videogames for mass shootings in the United States. Yet again bollocks that videogames are to blame for mass shootings & maybe what’s more to blame are Wayne LaPierre & the National Rifle Association lobbying politicians to prevent the introduction of background checks on anybody buying a firearm particularly an assault weapon, you know a common sense approach to gun control preventing criminals & the mentally ill getting hold of firearms. The NRA receive millions of dollars in donations annually from the small arms industry to payoff politicians to exploit the Second Amendment in a manner which the Founding Fathers never envisaged the Second Amendment to be used, because there’s an awful lot of profit to be made from people killing each other with guns. What’s the most common reason given not just by gunsexual rednecks in the flyover states to own an assault weapon other it being constitutional right for US citizens to do so etc, it’s because they need it for self-protection because some other fucker also has an assault weapon & you never know what their intent is for owning it, it’s this kind of bullshit paranoia which is a self-fulfilling prophecy & of course is good for business when it comes the firearms industry.

the pro gun lobby are far to blame for mass shootings in the United States then any videogame

The original intent of the Founding fathers writing the Second Amendment into the US Constitution was the United States didn’t have a standing army when it was a newly established nation after the War of Independence with the British & there was a real threat of British troops returning to reclaim the United States a British colony which a few years later British troops did in fact attempt to do & in the process burnt down the White House to the ground, but what was applicable in the late 18th century ain’t applicable or relevant in the early 21st century & certainly shouldn’t be exploited to bolster the profits of the firearms industry because that definitely wasn’t the original intent of the Founding Fathers in writing the Second Amendment, definitely not have it exploited for profit by the firearms industry at the cost of thousands of innocent people being killed annually in the United States due to firearms.

Not just political lefties who advocate for far greater gun control such as myself who are saying of the Second Amendment what was applicable in the late 18th century ain’t applicable or relevant in the early 21st century, a friend of mine who’s a conservative-libertarian & somebody who’s a political pundit on US talk radio told me today what was applicable then isn’t applicable now in regards the Second Amendment & said it’s the exploitation of Second Amendment by the firearms industry that is consequentially enabling criminals or the mentally ill easy access to firearms & surprised me by then saying background checks on people buying a gun wouldn’t be such a bad idea, yeah something of surprise considering conservative-libertarians are known to be the most gun polishing ardent supporters of right to bear arms as if the Second Amendment was written in stone, in fact they told me the Second Amendment isn’t carved in stone & could be you know amended if there was a will to do so & that there should be a will to do so.

If one conservative-libertarian can start to twig that lax gun control laws are the root cause for the frightening frequency of mass shootings in the United States I’d say there’s hope that attitudes on the right of the political spectrum in the US might be changing, in actual fact of polling on the issue of gun control has shown that the majority of US voters (including a majority of GOP voters) are in favour of greater gun control, but in the immediate nothing will be done when it comes to any common sense approach to gun control in the United States in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso or Dayton, just as there was fuck all action taken on gun control after Sandy Hook, Parkland, Orlando or any other place name now synonymous with the infamy of a mass shooting, Yeah no matter the shock & outcry there is the aftermath of any mass shooting in the United States, despite polling showing the vast majority of US citizens are in favour of there being greater gun control, politicians take no action rather they continue with the dance of denial & deflection as the root cause of mass shootings because for the politicians & the lobbyists & the arms industry there’s just way too much money to be made from gun deaths.

I’d Warn Against Reading Too Much Into The Brecon & Radnorshire By-Election Result

Why was the Brecon & Radnorshire parliamentary by-election being held in August? This is for me personally is the most important question to be asking about Brecon & Radnorshire by-election, as August is usually the political off season, when parliament is in recess, the Prime Minister & whoever politico else take their summer hols & thus all us heavyweight political commentators get to have a break from the grind of writing about what fuck ever is politically going on. I pretty much eat & breathe & shit politics every waking hour of my life as I’m sure my girlfriend can testify, because I do genuinely love being a political polemicist, but even I need a break to go get a frigging sun tan & I’m sure my girlfriend Kim would prefer I did take a break from all the political bullshit, yet here I’m writing about the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election when outside its 25℃ & sunny. It certainly was worse trying to write last week about Boris becoming Prime Minister during the hottest summer week there’s ever been in the UK & attempting to write at night due to the daytime heat but being hampered by Open Reach deciding that’s when they were going to perform maintenance on broadband lines in my local area including my own, grr, grr, grr, GRR!

Okay enough of my bitching about the difficulties I’ve had about writing stuff because the summer heat & corporate bureaucracy as there’s many who aren’t as fortunate as me in being able to speak out & anyways you’re here to read what my thoughts are in response to the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election result, though if I’m to be bluntly honest I’m not sure what the fuck to think about the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election result?!?!? If I attempt to summarise as to reasons for the Brecon & Radnorshire result, well it’s most likely the electorate giving the Tories a kicking for Theresa May’s dismal performance as Prime Minister & the usual mid-term doldrums all governing parties experience with byelections & local election results etc, I also think as with the local election results back in May I think enough time has passed since the coalition government for the Liberal Democrats to return to being everybody’s favourite protest vote, but ultimately I think the result is a consequence of the circumstances in which this byelection came about that being because the then sitting Tory MP Chris Davies was caught & convicted of fiddling his parliamentary expenses thus the electorate rightfully being pissed at him for doing so.

Some pundits reckon there might have been something of a ‘Boris bounce’ for the Tories, well this obviously didn’t happen for them with the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election being as the Tories lost the seat, neither do I think it was any kind of backlash against the Tories with Johnson now as Prime Minister lurching to the hard-right as I’m not sure people are quite aware of this actually happening & certainly not aware of the pain its going to fucking cause them, I definitely don’t think it’s any kind of massive fuck you to Brexit as the Liberal Democrats are trying to spin it as.

Lib Dems Celebrating the Brecon & Radnorshire By-Election result

Yeah of course the Liberal Democrats ever the political opportunists are going to spin the Brecon byelection victory as some kind of signal of a fuck you to Brexit because the one thing just about everybody knows about the Lib Dems is they’re the party which says BOLLOCKS TO BREXIT! But the Lib Dems & previously when they the Liberal Party have been the party who’ve had party leaders loudly instructing party activists to back to their constituencies & prepare for government because either they’ve won the odd parliamentary byelection or had a positive set of local election results or had a 0.25 bounce in the opinion polls, only later when it comes to a General Election rarely getting the results they thought they would & ending up with egg on their face bitching about if we had proportionate representation blah fucking blah. Okay I do support changing the current electoral system to one of proportionate representation, but that’s not the point of what I’m saying here. What I’m saying is don’t read anything into the outcome of the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election, it’s as I say most likely the result of local issues with the Tory MP who’s now been unseated & certainly bollock all to do with the Lib Dems saying ‘bollocks to Brexit’.

The only thing as a result of the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election which is of definite interest, is Boris Johnson now has a working majority of 1 thanks to the confidence & supply arrangement the Tories have with bigots from Ulster aka the Democratic Unionist Party & well this does have a bearing with all the bullshit regarding Brexit & any crucial votes there’s to be in parliament on the issue. What more is Prime Minister Boris going to promise the DUP to keep them onside? Can Boris in fact keep the DUP onside? Is a General Election more likely now that the Tories working majority has been further cut?

Boris Johnson Should Be An Electoral Gift To Labour But…..

Dominic Raab is an antifeminist & transphobic Tory scumbag who Boris Johnson has appointed Foreign Secretary. Priti Patel is an antiabortion, pro capital punishment, anti LGBTQ, social-conservative headbanger who Boris has appointed Home Secretary. Theresa Villiers is pro fracking & a climate change denier, who Boris has without any sense of irony appointed Environment Secretary! But the fucking cherry of nutty brown bullshit when it comes to ministerial appointments in Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s first cabinet has to be Jacob Rees Mogg, not only is he anti LGBTQ equality, antiabortion, antifeminist, not only a climate-change denier, but surprise not a fucking surprise a Christian fundamentalist. it’s more then fucking evident when you look at the ministerial appointments in Boris’s first cabinet that the Tory lunatics have well & truly taken over the fucking asylum, pretty evident to me looking at the ministerial appointments in Boris’s first cabinet he has the intent of having the Tory government lurching to the hard-right slash far-right (as if there’s a difference) which means a great deal more pain & misery for the likes of disabled me as well fuck knows how many millions of others, all of which should make it far more inevitable for a Labour government to be elected sooner rather than later.

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson should be an electoral gift to the Labour Party, the British Trump should be a fucking gift to the Labour Party!

Boris Johnson, a wealthy privileged toff who has a long history of espousing racist & homophobic & misogynistic bullshit, who has propagated fake news & not given a damn for detail when giving a damn for detail truly mattered, who’s only interested in government will be pursuing the interests of those who like himself are wealthy & privileged, all the while blinding those who are poor & ignorant with nationalistic jingoism & duping them that its Muslims or immigrants or Johnny Foreigner shafting them, when the truth it’s the wealthy elite shafting them & it’s the wealthy elite who Boris with his hard-right chums in government represent, all of which for Labour should be low hanging political fruit ripe for the picking, so why is it I get the awful frigging suspicion that Jeremy Corbyn might miss the opportunity to exploit such easy pickings.

No I’ve not turned against Jeremy Corbyn as some of his most ardent fans might fear when reading this, I’m still a steadfast Corbynista as Jeremy Corbyn has been by some margin the most principled British politician with the greatest amount of integrity there’s been in my lifetime & I’m certain if elected Prime Minister he’d head up a Labour government who’ll revolutionise my life & the lives of countless others for the better, so when I voice concerns of what I’ve seen so far with Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour leadership’s approach in tackling Tories led by Boris Johnson, it’s not some Blairite ruse to have Jeremy Corbyn ousted as Labour leader, it’s because as a trans woman with multiple disabilities I desperately need Jeremy Corbyn to succeed as with the Tories lurching to the hard-right slash far-right I’ve never been as scared as I’m right now about my future.

I despise Boris Johnson for all I’ve detailed above & more, but he’s an effective rabble-rousing (with gusto) manipulative political performer which I can as to why people might be attracted to in comparison to Jeremy Corbyn’s far more earnest style, this was very much on display when yesterday Boris gave his first Prime Ministerial statement in the House of Commons & the manner of Jeremy Corbyn’s response. Effectively manipulative is how I’d describe Boris’s first performance as Prime Minister in the House of Commons & Jeremy Corbyn’s response was shall we say somewhat underwhelming. Yes Jeremy Corbyn can rattle off statistic after statistic about how fucking woeful the Tories record in government has been & the Tories record in government has definitely been fucking woeful, but rattling off statistics bores the fuck out of most people & unfortunately we now live in a post truth world so rattling off figures counts for shit.

Donald Trump has proven in the United States that people can be attracted to somebody who says whatever shite they want to no matter what the facts happen to be & Boris Johnson has already substantial record doing likewise, now I’d like to think here in the UK we’d be a bit more cynical to this kind of bullshit seeing it as all mouth & no trousers, plumping for something far more earnest as in substance over style, but we know how it is with Brexiters. It doesn’t matter how many facts any Remainer confronts any Brexiter with about how Brexit is going to cripple this country economically, Brexiters will still dwell fully in their Gollum malaise wanting Brexit precious fucking Brexit, this is the post truth world we now find ourselves in & it’s the world Jeremy Corbyn needs to contend with.

I’d love to think Jeremy Corbyn’s earnest approach of honesty, integrity & principle will win the day as it’s what I personally prefer to see in a political leader, I’m just not sure currently it’s the approach which will currently win the day. I think Jeremy Corbyn along colleagues in the Labour leadership need to get together over the summer parliamentary recess t devise a better strategy to undermine & eventually topple Boris for the sake of many such as myself, nothing wrong with Labour policy but there possibly is in how it’s being conveyed, because the irony is at the moment though Boris is far more out of touch with the man in the street Boris is far more in touch in how to manipulate them.

Enter Boris & Now It’s Off We Go To War With Iran & Brexit Disaster Land

So on Monday Jo Swinson was elected leader of the Liberal Dem…..oh sorry wrong party & wrong leadership contest, I’m kind of out of practice having had to take a few days off from writing to deal with some personal stuff, however the votes of the Liberal Democrat MPs do in fact have some importance as we currently have a hung parliament & soon enough after the summer recess there’s going to be more parliamentary Brexit bullshit.

Despite having had to take some personal time from ranting like frothing at the mouth militant socialist motherfucker, It’s kind of impossible with wall-to-fucking-wall news coverage not to be aware Boris Johnson was yesterday elected Tory Party leader & just this afternoon after visiting Queen Lizzy at the palace is now the UK’s Prime Minister, I’m also aware we a fucked! With Prime Minister Boris Johnson we as a nation are completely & utterly motherfucking fuck!

Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Donald Trump described Boris Johnson as Britain Trump, I think President Bozo Racist The Pussy Grabber was meant to say Boris was Britain’s Trump or the British Trump, but anyways will Donald be holding hands when he & Boris are walking together as he did with Theresa May, fuck it why not as it’s obvious to me those two have some kind of bromance going on, hey why don’t the two of them get a sleazy motel room together to further explore their bromance & they can have Nigel Farage join them for a threesome.

In all seriousness one should actually be extremely fearful of the close relationship between Boris & Donald, considering Trump having since surrounded himself with warmongering scumbag ‘neo-con’ advisers like John Bolton tensions with the Iranian regime have weirdly escalated & you can’t help thinking its only a matter of time until its 1-2-3-4 off to war with Iran, which might mean Britain might get dragged into another Middle Eastern exertion to fatten the profits of the Military Industrial Complex if Boris is going to play Mini-Me to Donald Trump.

If Donald Trump meant when he said ‘Trump Britain’ that Boris Johnson was going to lurch crazily to the hard-right/far-right as he is in the way he governs, yeah I’m scared as fuck this will be the case which definitely ain’t good if you’re disabled, poor, female or LGBTQ. Like Trump, Boris has a history of making racist & homophobic comments & propagating fake news as well as not being bothered with detail when detail fucking matters, oh sure Boris made mention of supporting LGBTQ people in his first speech as Prime Minister outside No10, yeah well Trump was pictured holding the LGBTQ Pride flag when as a Presidential candidate whilst as president his administration has been rolling back the few federal protections there were preventing discrimination against LGBTQ people. The Tories have for the past decade been pursuing genocidal policies against people with disabilities, I expect no different from the Tory government led by Boris Johnson, in fact I expect Boris’s government to ratchet up the killing disabled people, an ominous sign is disabled people were the first to be gassed by the nazis, but killing disabled people isn’t the only ominous sign of Boris Johnson’s nazi or fascist tendencies.

Philip Hammond, Rory Stewart, Alan Duncan & several other Tories who oppose a No-Deal-Brexit have resigned from their cabinet positions as a No-Deal-Brexit is clearly Boris intentions, all of which means Boris’s first cabinet as Prime Minister will no doubt be chock full with Tory ministers with a massive fucking hardon for a No-Deal-Brexit, Boris did reiterated his determination for the UK to leave the European Union on October 31st in his first speech as Prime Minister outside No10 & as a new Brexit deal with the EU can’t logistically be negotiated with the EU by October, it appears we are heading to No-Deal-Brexit disaster land & Boris doesn’t mind acting like fucking fascist despot to force Brexit disaster land to happen. If Boris follows through on his threat to prorogue parliament to forcing a No-Deal-Brexit he’ll be acting very much in the manner of a fascist despot, because when executive branch of government suspends the legislative branch when the legislative doesn’t give the executive what it wants that folks is what fascist despots do.

The Prison Diary Of Tommy Robinson Aged 36 ¾

Remember back in January a bunch of pro-Brexit far-right gammon thugs wearing high vis vests filmed themselves harassing politicians & journalists outside parliament, well chief among the yellow vested gammon thugs James Goddard plead guilty in court last Friday to having harassed anti-Brexit MP Anna Soubry & to having racially abused a police officer, unfortunately James won’t be serving a custodial sentence despite having proved on numerous occasions other than harassing Anna Soubry MP & journalist Owen Jones outside parliament that he’s a menace to civil society & thus won’t be joining his fascistic gammon hero Tommy Robinson in prison.

Its being reported that Tommy Robinson has been punched in the face by a 70-year-old prisoner because he was acting ‘like a celebrity’, I know I shouldn’t laugh but gammon nazi hard man Tommy getting decked in the prison showers by an old age pensioner ha fucking ha fucking ha hehehe.

Tommy Robinson

I wonder if getting decked by an old-age-pensioner whilst taking a shower will be in Tommy’s prison diary, yes I hear Tommy is writing a prison diary, but before Tommy or any of his racist gammon fanboys reckon the prison diaries of Tommy Robinson aged 36 ¾ is going to top The Sunday Times Bestsellers List, I think they should be aware there are now laws in place preventing convicted criminals (which Tommy is) profiting from their criminal deeds with books & films etc, oh I forgot Tommy & his fanboys don’t give a shit about the law when it comes to the legal limitations upon free speech being as this why Tommy is currently in prison.

On the basis of previous bullshit untruths Tommy has told about having been victimised for being a patriot (otherwise known as racist scum) when having served previous custodial sentences, you just know if his prison diaries were ever to be published would have the stench of dear diary what lies should I tell today about Tommy the patriotic free speech warrior being victimised which is going to keep brand Tommy Robinson well financed with donations from ignorant gammon suckers, so Tommy’s prison diary isn’t going to have Tommy writing about getting decked by an old white man in the prison shower as it wouldn’t fit the narrative Tommy can grift off, rather the substance of Tommy’s prison diaries would likely be the predictable bullshit about fearing to drop the soap in the shower because of being targeted by Islamic prison rape gangs because that’s the narrative that will keep him flush with the cash from gammon idiots.

I’m sure the Prison Service will be well fucking aware there are a good number of Muslim & non White inmates who’d like nothing better than to beat the shit out of Tommy for the racist shite which he continuously propagates & so they’d not be doing their fucking job if they didn’t keep Tommy segregated from those who would literally kill him for being a racist gobshite. If Tommy comes out of prison saying he was attacked by Muslim inmates when in prison then that would actually be grounds to sue the Prison Service for not doing their job properly, oh & I’m certain Tommy will be coming out of prison claiming he was attacked by Muslim inmates but I seriously doubt Tommy will be bringing suit against the Prison Service because it will be utter bullshit he was, but it’s enough bullshit to keeping racist gammon knuckle-draggers pledging their pathetic lives in support of Tommy.  

The Day After Trans Pride Brighton

I’ve been downing Tramadol this morning after Trans Pride Brighton as if they were fucking Smarties due to the physical agony attending events such as Trans Pride Brighton & Pride in London has on disabled me, however the physical agony I now feel due to my exertions yesterday in attending TPB was worth it not only when it comes to the reward in being able to do my bit to champion the trans cause & to shout loudly & proudly trans is beautiful, but because this was the best TPB for me on a personal level specifically due to two fellow trans women I met

I want to give a special mention to both Patricia & Dee who I met at Trans Pride Brighton as they were both were really sweet by simply being welcoming of me, with being autistic & physically disabled I’ve often found it hard to socially connect with people at events such as TPB & often found people who I thought would be friendly towards me not actually being very welcoming of me at all, so yeah it meant a lot there were people at TPB wanting to know me & who I also discovered really value the stuff I write. Patricia is the chief organiser of the trans group I’ve more often than not marched with in the Pride London parade, though we’ve only recently become far more friendly to one another & I’ve discovered that despite various political differences Patricia is one of the sweetest trans women I’ve ever met, I also discovered that despite our political differences Patricia has been moved to tears by some of the articles I’ve written of late. Dee I met for the first time at TPB 2019, I actually thought she was going to ask for my autograph as she really did come over as something of a mega fan of my whole ‘don’t give a fuck’ style of writing, she was definitely expressing a great deal of praise about me as a writer to her friends, I’m seriously blown the fuck away because usually I’m met with quite a bit of indifference about the stuff I write even from those who claim they ‘care’ about me.

As lovely as it might have been for Trans Pride Brighton to facilitate my ego being massaged & thus helping to make this the best TPB on a personal level, of far more importance is that organisers are saying overall this is the best TPB there’s been so far, there definitely appeared to be more people participating in the TPB parade along the Brighton seafront & there definitely were more attendees both trans & cis at the park event & the park was chock full stalls more then there’s previously been giving out info on all kinds of trans related stuff.

Well I’m pleased to report this year’s Trans Pride Brighton there was no attempt by terfy transphobic bigoted motherfuckers to spoil the event with some disruptive stunt to push their odious agenda of transphobic hate, though the bigoted motherfuckers have been getting their panties in a bind online about Green Party MP & former party leader Caroline Lucas having attended TPB. Caroline Lucas was indeed in attendance at this year’s TPB & it’s not the first she’s attended because as being the local MP she also steadfastly supports greater equality & social-justice for trans people & reiterated this in the awesome speech she gave when addressing those of us who were about to participate in the TPB parade along Brighton’s promenade, I’d expect nothing from Caroline because I’ve long known she’s fucking awesome!

Maybe it’s time terfy transphobic bigoted motherfuckers twigged they’re very much on the wrong side of history as they’ve lost their culture war against the trans community which was always was fucking asinine in the first place, because it’s not just Caroline Lucas or Jeremy Corbyn & MPs on the left of the political spectrum who support trans people’s wish to live free as their true selves & to do so without harassment for being their true selves. Maybe terfy transphobic bigoted motherfuckers ought to do the decent thing & fuck off & literally choked on their sour grapes, certainly time they realised their political friends aren’t to be found on the radical-left but on the far-right, as TERFs obsessive hatred of trans people & in particular of trans women has a great deal in common with the far-right & their brand of bigoted hate.

One thing which I took away from this year’s Trans Pride Brighton which gave me hope for the future was when talking to younger trans & non binary activists whilst marching in the TPB parade who like myself fear the increasing rise of the far-right & thus are very much dedicated to campaigning against the threat the far-right pose, good news to hear the future generation of trans activists are taking the threat which the far-right pose far more seriously as it’s been my experience in the recent past that those Guardian reading middle-class trans women who’ve tended to steer the direction of the trans community have been far too complacent about the threat which the far-right pose & thus have never been that willing to do anything to effectively campaign against the far-right.

The growth of Trans Pride Brighton from where it started in back in 2013 to the size it is in 2019 has been an astonishing success & I’m proud to have been part of it’s success, long may TPB grow & have increasing success in being able to raise awareness of the trans cause & to champion trans is beautiful! As long as terfy transphobic bigots have influence in the mainstream media, so long as the mainstream media continues to attack the trans community, so long as there are increasing physical assaults motivated by transphobic hate, so long as trans people aren’t receiving adequate healthcare, so long as the far-right pose a threat to there being diversity & tolerance of diversity, there will be a need for TPB.

Not Sure What Other Trans People Are Planning To Do This Weekend But I’m Heading For Trans Pride Brighton

I can take it to my grave that back in 2013 I was at the inaugural Trans Pride Brighton where there was less then 10 of us on the parade through the streets of Brighton & a half empty park sparsely filled with stalls, five years on & last year Trans Pride Brighton had grown into the biggest trans orientated Pride event in Europe with near on 10,000 participating in the parade along Brighton’s promenade & a park full to capacity which was chock full of stalls championing the trans cause. There’s most definitely been rapid growth (& then some) with Trans Pride Brighton & I’m proud to have been year on year part of TPB’s rapid development, so this coming Saturday I’m planning to again be proudly part of TPB & I encourage all trans comrades if able to also make an effort in attending because trans visibility is such a crucial facet to our success.

Yours truly along with other trans comrades at the very first Trans Pride Brighton back in 2013

Sarah Savage & Fox Fisher & everybody else who got the ball rolling with Trans Pride Brighton & who continue to invest their energy in keeping TPB going should be commended for their efforts, having the foresight to make TPB happen in the first place & subsequently seeing an explosive growth in the event has had over the past 6 years has proven that for trans people our time is now! But despite there seeming to be far more support & acceptance of trans people here in the UK, despite the trans community getting far more attention than it ever has previously & despite the trans community having far more of an impact on wider society then it’s ever had, despite it all adding up to appearing that our time is now, we still very much need an event such as Trans Pride Brighton to have continued growth & success because there’s still much work to be done to seriously improve the plight of many trans people. There’s still much work to be done regards raising awareness of the specific issues all us trans people face on a daily basis & how best to address such issues, we are still faced with unacceptable amounts of discrimination as well as out & out transphobic hate reports of which seem to sadly be on the increase, there are still extremist transphobic bigots who’ve not grasped they’ve lost the culture war & have far too much influence, oh & then there’s Boris Johnson becoming the UK’s next Prime Minister which won’t necessarily mean he’ll be full on Donald Trump in attitude towards trans people but I do think a Tory government under Boris will lurch towards the hard-right thus possibly not be as pro trans nor pro LGBTQ as they have recently been, so having as massive of an event as Trans Brighton can get is important as it helps to draw more attention to all of what I’ve detailed plus much more & the more the numbers of attendees are bolstered by trans people the better.

It’s not just the more trans people who attend Trans Pride Brighton the more its going to help attract attention from the mainstream news media thus helping to increase trans awareness, it’s also about a show of force as in a positive show of force with strength in numbers against those who would like nothing better then to wipe us from the face of the earth. Remember I previously mentioned there were extremist transphobic bigots who hadn’t grasped they’ve lost the culture war, well last year these terfy motherfuckers disrupted Pride in London to protest trans inclusion, then attempted to gain entry to last year’s TPB event to push their odiously hateful agenda but ended up with a small number of them hurling abuse from a distance as we paraded along the seafront in Brighton which was met with several thousand of us giving them the wanker sign. Because I doubt any these bigoted motherfuckers have fucked off to choke on their sour grapes having finally grasped they’ve lost the culture war, they might very well attempt to disrupt this year’s TPB event & its perfectly understandable why the prospect of transphobic bigots possibly disrupting TPB which might put off some trans people from attending, but I’d point out scaring trans people away from attending TPB is exactly what transphobic bigots want to do & major means by which we will defeat these bigoted bullies is to show we are not fucking scared of them with a show of strength in numbers, this is why I’ve long said the more trans visibility is a crucial plank to our success as the more trans visibility there is then the less we will eventually be bullied for simply being our true selves as it illustrates the bullies can’t win.

I might not always feel welcome at TPB when it comes to the whole social-networking stuff, always feel somewhat left out in cold with people & their particular circle of friends at Trans Pride Brighton, but I always try to remember the bigger picture there is with TPB & by helping to further the trans cause with my attendance.

Ode To Tempest

So I’ve gone from writing about fighting Zionism & averting climate-catastrophe to now writing about trans musicians, yes for a weighty if very fucking sweary political commentator such as I’m this might appear totally eccentrically off the fucking wall & that I’m losing the plot, however never forget I’m a trans woman who cares a great deal about the plight of the trans community & obviously care in particular about trans sister friends of mine.

Laura Jane Grace is the name which most comes to mind when talking about trans musicians, but there are others such as Mina Caputo the lead singer of Life Of Agony (who I’m in fact listening to as I write this) & those of a certain age will of course remember Jayne County & those of us who really know their stuff will be aware of Venus Demars, oh then there’s my friend Tempest Crane who if you hadn’t guessed from the article’s title is the main subject matter of this article because not only is she a talented musician but she also has a special place in my heart when it comes to my own trans journey.

Tempest Crane

I won’t go into all the details as to how a mouthy South African political polemicist living a small town in the South East of England got to know a trans musician with full on rock & roll attitude living in Minneapolis in the Mid-West of the United States, other then then to say hey that’s the magic of the internet & its thanks to the magic of the internet which led to me crossing paths with Tempest as to why it is I now sit here as trans woman writing this. These days it’s common to hear so many in the trans community shout fuck the gender binary & being trans is about liberating one’s self from gender constraints, but back in 2008 this was far more unusual & Tempest was the first trans woman proudly advocating such radicalism, she was first trans woman I had encountered who thought trans wasn’t a blight or a curse but a gift of liberation & this was a serious breathe of fresh air to what I had previously experienced with other trans women, more importantly when I fessed up I knew full well I had gender dysphoria she spent almost 2 years encouraging me to come out & when I did eventually come out as trans in 2010 the first phone conversation we had subsequently I distinctly remember her saying well you’re going to be a lot happier now & hearing a serious sigh of breathe from her.

I credit Tempest as one of two trans women who did the most to encourage me to transition, but not only was Tempest correct about me being a great deal happier having come out as trans because overall my life over the past decade has been far happier now I’m far more at ease in my own skin, what is now mainstream thinking within the trans community is what Tempest was advocating over a decade ago, well anyways as a means of a very belated thanks for what Tempest did for me a decade ago I want to big her up for the talented musician she is.

I appreciate that Laura Jane Grace is out there in the spotlight of the mainstream media giving trans women positive representation with her band Against Me, but as somebody who is about as Punk Rock as you get as anybody who knows me can testify I find Against Me a bit tame & boring for a supposed Punk Rock band, Mina Caputo & life of agony have far more alt rock with edge & certainly have more Punk Rock swagger, if however your looking for a trans musician who looks full on rock & roll & is full on rock & roll then its my fellow trans sister Tempest as she oozes motherfucking rock & roll swagger with every molecule of her being.

Tempest when she first came out as trans had played bass along with fellow trans musician Jendeen Forberg on drums in Venus Demars’s band All The Pretty Horses, as I guess trans musicians involved in the Minneapolis’s music scene were going to be drawn together, however Tempest along with Jendeen has shone far more as the talented musician & showman in their own band Harsh Reality. Heavy Metal is not quite my thing other than with the odd crossover band with Punk such as Motorhead (which incidentally I & Tempest are both massive fans of), but from what I’ve seen of the live performances of Tempest’s band Harsh Reality, you’re going to get a live music experience you ain’t going to forget in a fucking hurry.

It’s not as if Tempest just got off the bus with a guitar & overnight expected to be a rock star, she’s put in hard fucking graft with hours upon hours of practice & live performances, touring with all the shitty food & shitty motels which come along with it, she deserves far more recognition then she has gotten. Okay plenty of talented musicians never make it to the big time & the same goes with writers (don’t I just fucking know it ha fucking ha), however I’d interject that Tempest lives in the United States of Donald Trump & we know how Trump’s America detests trans people.

I write this in thanks to what Tempest did for me a decade ago but also because I’ve never expressed I’ve loved her for who & what she is from the very beginning of having known her. Tempest has a had a pretty tough time of it lately & well it’s now my time to encourage her never to give up on her dreams for she is rock & rock, for she is beautiful.
