More Bullshit Regards Iran

Today marks 20 years since the ban was lifted on LGBTQ people serving in the British military, my opinion on LGBTQ people serving in the military is pretty much the same opinion of the late great Bill Hicks, if there are LGBTQ people just as dumb as any heteronormative gammon wanker in wanting to pick up a gun & go fight wars for oil on behest of the Military Industrial Complex then I say fucking let them.

Of course if the United States & Britain went to war with Iran then Britain might very well have soldiers who are trans fighting that war whereas United States would have no soldiers who are trans as Donald Trump as US president has decreed that trans people can no longer serve in the US military because apparently being trans prevents you from gunning or bombing Iranians to death. The irony is trans people get better treatment under the Iranian regime then they’ve had under the Trump administration, though of course gung-ho hatemongering gammon fanboys of Tommy Robinson refuse to believe this to be true despite the fact they’re just as hateful of trans people as they are about them brown people who eat halal.

So the latest bullshit out Iran is that the British Ambassador Rob Macaire was detained after attending the vigil in Tehran for those who died when last week the Iranian military shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane which then turned into a protest against the Iranian government, err what the fuck does anybody fucking expect when Boris Johnson sides with Donald Trump against the Iranian regime, Tory ministers can whine all they like about how the Iranian regime detaining the British Ambassador being a violation of the Geneva Convention but its not as if none of us aren’t aware that the Iranian regime does have something of a track record when it comes to violating the Geneva Convention, I mean some of us are old enough to remember the Iranian hostage crisis which in part helped to bring down the Carter administration.

There will be those gung-ho gammon dipshits who are itching for the US military to go bomb Iran because bombing them brown people who eat halal is probably the only thing likely to give them an erection & who will no doubt accuse me of being anti-American or for being a lover of the Iranian regime because I say trans people are currently better off under the Iranian regime then currently under the Trump administration, hey me saying trans people are treated better by the Iranian regime then those trans people living under the current US government isn’t a ringing endorsement of the Iranian regime, it’s more a condemnation of the Trump administration’s treatment of trans people in restricting them from having the same rights as anybody else in mainstream society in a country which thinks its morally superior for being the ‘land of the free’.

Anti-government protests in Iran

I certainly don’t in any manner support the Iranian regime, for starters it’s an autocratic theocracy which rules with brutality & savagery, it puts to death people who are homosexual simply for being homosexual, it violates many of the human rights we take for granted such as freedom of speech, all of which is why I find myself weirdly in agreement with Donald Trump in support of the protests against the Iranian regime which are appearing to be increasing across Iran following the Iranian regime admitting it did down a Ukrainian passenger plane, the Iranians would likely be better off if they overthrew the current regime ruling over them unless of course the likes of ISIS see an opportunity in gaining a foothold as a consequence of any insurrection against the current Iranian regime.

It’s All Drooping For Bigoted Gammon Now Trump Has Said Iran Are Standing Down

Despite Donald Trump having threatened to order the bombing of cultural sites inside Iran further to having ordered the drone attack a week ago which killed Iran’s top military commander Qasem Soleimani & despite the Iranian military having possibly downed a Ukrainian passenger jet which was flying over Iranian airspace in a retaliatory missile attack on US military bases in Iraq, Donald Trump has now claimed that the Iranian military appears to be standing down, or more likely Donald Trump has wanked himself off enough for now from having bombed shit in the Middle East because yes when it comes down to it everything (particularly wars) is about dick! I bet those most disappointed in Trump’s announcement that the Iranian military appears to be stepping down & thus there now won’t be an immediate war on Iran to get all fucking gung-ho about, will bigoted gammon, no super jiz time for them sitting in mom’s basement rather it’s all going to be a bit droopy for gammon in regards to Iran.

Donald Trump announcing the Iranian military were appearing to stand down after recent escalation in tensions between the US & Iran

Though gammon might be disappointed there won’t be any immediate war with Iran for them to get all rock hard & excited about, bigoted gammon need not fear because the pattern of bullshit with Iran is oh so familiar to me, because back in the 1990s following the first Gulf War there would periodically be an escalation in tensions between the US & Iraq resulting in NATO bombing various sites in or around Baghdad & then things would calm down for a while, of course we know how that all transpired when in the year 2000 there was a change in the US presidency & George W Bush arrived in the Oval Office day one with a hard-on for invading Iraq. War with Iran is fucking inevitable, it’s not as if the Military Industrial Complex haven’t got any new toys for troops to play with or that that the Iranians haven’t got a fuck ton of oil to be plundered, but the war in Iraq is still relatively fresh in the minds of the American electorate & as its election year in the United States so selling another war in the Middle East might be more than tricky for Donald Trump to sell to the American people when running for re-election, though be sure the Trump administration will continue with the covert & clandestine war against Iran which might very well result in terrorist blowback upon the American people.

Even members of Donald Trump’s own party aren’t happy about his action against the Iranian regime, but I see Boris Johnson has taken time out from sunning himself in the Caribbean to be Prime Minister & stick his tongue up the arse of Donald Trump in backing the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, oh fucking wonderful BoJo has now entangled the UK in the bullshit between the US & Iran & because he’s sided with Trump it’s now British people who could also now suffer from the blowback of terrorism as a result of him doing so.

Boris Johnson sticking his tongue up the arse of Donald Trump

Boris Johnson supports Donald Trump having ordered the drone strike which killed Qasem Soleimani & yet has the fucking cheek to ask for there to be a de-escalation of tensions between the US & Iran, because yeah killing Iranian’s top military commander has really de-escalated things hasn’t it Boris NOT! I heard that somebody describe Donald Trump as a terrorist in a suit, what an apt description because that’s exactly what the assassination of Qasem Soleimani was. Its not as if I’m terribly weepy about Qasem Soleimani being killed, he was an evil piece of shit, but his assassination was an act of state sponsored terrorism, which is a tactic the US & UK government have been quick to condemn other governments for having pursued.

Yes the Iranian regime are certainly guilty themselves of state sponsored terrorism, but the point is don’t we think ourselves more righteously superior morally then the likes of the Iranian regime & yet our own governments pursue the same tactic & then there’s the gung-ho fuckwitted bigoted gammon cheering them on for doing so.

Climate Change Ablaze & Talk Of WW3 Hasn’t This First Weekend of the 2020s Sucked!

So this has been the first weekend of the year, the first weekend of this decade & hasn’t it just fucking sucked!

I discovered my grandmother had died & my arsehole family didn’t have the common decency to inform me, but best not to dwell as one can’t change the past only the present & future, but I’m not sure we might have much of future what with the Australian bush fires & the escalation of shit between in the US & Iran.

Remember when one of the Koch Brothers dropped dead last year whilst the Amazon rain forest was ablaze, well unfortunately the other Koch Brother is still alive to fund the denial that the Australian bushfires currently raging have anything to do with climate-change. If you thought the fires in the Amazon rainforest last year were frigging devasting, the size of the Australian bush fires currently raging make the fires in the Amazon rainforest last year look as if they were your average bonfire in the Blue Peter Garden, people in New Zealand’s largest city Auckland over a thousand miles away from Australia awoke today to find the city was coated in an orange haze as consequence of the Australian bush fires, for fucks sake the enormity of the bushfires in Australia can be seen by satellites from space & the enormity of the bushfires in Australia is creating its own weather phenomenon which is making the situation worse, this is a national emergency for Australia & its consequence could worsen the climate emergency for millions around the globe, all which has come about due to Australia experiencing record high temperatures which very much has everything to do with climate-change being as real as a motherfucker! Oh no wait climate-change can’t be real because Meat Loaf is now a fucking climatologist who reckons Greta Thunberg has been ‘brainwashed’ into thinking climate-change is real.

Hey Meat Loaf you talentless GOP supporting fuck will you be joining Ted Nugent in entertaining US troops when they’ve marched into Tehran. For Tommy Robinson & gammon fuckwits there’s just not enough hate in bushfires killing kangaroos & koala bears & as a consequence for the planet’s eco-system & climate to be further fucked up, because that’s all pinko hippy lefty bullshit, but hey it’s super jiz time for gammon dwelling in mom’s basement with the prospect of yet another war against them brown people who eat Halal with a further escalation of tensions between the US & Iran.

Donald Trump claimed the targeted U.S drone attack this past Friday which killed Iran’s top military commander Qasem Soleimani, was to “to stop a war not to start one”. I wonder if Trump actually believes the shit he spouts, because it’s done anything but prevent a war, it’s actually ramped up the inevitability of there being yet another war in the Middle-East for fucks sake, at the very least there’ll now be far greater hostility from the Iranian regime towards western nations clandestine or outright terrorist in nature which will result in more innocent blood being spilt. The further hypocrisy regards the drone attack which killed Qasem Soleimani was it being a state sanction assassination something which the US & British governments are always quick in condemning other governments for pursuing & more often than not this it’s the Israeli government being condemned more than any other, oh & of course it’s been the paranoia of the Israeli government led by fascist in the making Benjamin Netanyahu which has been itching for western powers to go bomb Iran because there can be only there can only be one regional bully in the Middle-East with nukes.

I’m no fan of the Iranian regime & I certainly don’t want them to be developing nuclear weapons, but ironically bigoted gammon fuckwits who get all gung-ho about Trump getting tough on Iran actually have far more common with the Iranian regime then they realise, in fact the Iranian regime are more liberal in some respects then your average Tommy Robinson supporting knuckle-dragging gammon fanboy, I mean trans women in Iran have the same legal protections as cis women, sure the Iranian regime are homophobic as fuck but so are your average gammon, the Iranian regime are however certainly far less transphobic then your average gammon.

I wrote somewhat of a rambling piece last summer about the likelihood of the US going to war with Iran from the perspective of far-right YouTube shitlords Ben Shapiro & Paul Joseph Watson having something of a ding-dong scrap about the subject, within that ramble fest of an article I wrote that ‘It’s not a case of if but when the US/UK will go to war with Iran’ & I still think the words I wrote are prophetic as Iran has a fuck ton of oil & recently discovered another reserve estimated to be worth 53 billion barrels & I’m sure the Military Industrial Complex always have new toys for troops to play with.

What A Fucking Dismal Decade For Those Of Us On The Political Left

So it’s the last few days, of the last month, of the last year, of this decade without a name, a time when people will reflect upon their favourite films or favourite TV series or favourite videogames of the past decade, Snowpiercer was my favourite film of the decade, my favourite videogame was Cities Skylines, as for my favourite TV series well I hate to be unoriginal as it’s likely the same as anybody else’s which of course is Game Of Thrones, but hey I’m not known for being a pop culture commentator or critic, I’m known as an uber sweary political commentator, so enough with bollocking on about how frigging awesome Snowpiercer & Game Of Thrones were & lets reflect in around about meandering style how dismal this decade has been for anybody who’s politically to the left.   

Your truly with Alys the love of my life

Though my conclusion is it’s been a dismal decade for those of us on the left of politics, for me personally it’s actually been better than an okay decade, the two major highlights for me personally were successfully coming out as trans in 2010 & then meeting the love of my life Alys (aka Kim Justice) in 2017. There have definitely been more positive than negative highlights for me personally this past decade, from giving up smoking in 2011, to finally managing to move into a decent home in 2016, to surviving a heart attack in 2018 (yes surviving a heart attack is a positive), there was also going to the Houses of Parliament for the first time in 2013 to lobby MPs on the issue of trans rights & subsequently doing so several times, then there was finally getting to talk to my trans hero Caroline Cossey though it’s a shame she turned out to be an utter truscum bigoted cunt well they do say don’t they that you should never meet your heroes they’ll only ever disappoint you.

This has certainly been the decade when trans people became far more prevalent in the public eye, yeah this isn’t just the decade where I came out as trans but just about the entirety of the trans community has seemed to have come out from hiding rejoicing in trans being far more about liberation then it being a stigma. Sure as a consequence of trans people having been far more prevalent in the public eye & thus there being far more interest from the mainstream media in trans people, it’s given rise to the cult of the professional tranny celebrity which I don’t think is helpful in the long term for trans people, however I do acknowledge that trans people appearing in the mainstream media has helped push justice & equality for trans people further up the political agenda which is no bad thing. Yes with trans rights becoming far more of a hot topic politically it’s created a transphobic backlash this however was always going to be inevitable as it’s happened previously when the issue of justice & equality have come to the forefront of the political zeitgeist in regards to other sections of society, but when looking back overall at the past decade regards to the plight of trans people I do think its been mostly positive & one of the few things non transphobic progressive lefties can smile about.

Richard Garner a friend who I lost near the beginning of this decade but still miss

For me personally & for me as a trans woman yes this decade has been generally positive, however it’s not as if I didn’t lose people close to me along the way, in particularly I think of my friend Richard Garner who died of a drugs overdose in 2011, after all these years I still find myself in floods of tears thinking about Rick, yes our politics were different he a libertarian-anarchist & me a socialist but we often found common ground politically whether it was opposition to the war in Iraq or legalizing pot, he was also a massive supporter of the LGBTQ community & supported me when I came out as trans when many others round me didn’t, but what I miss most of all about Richard was he was just as Punk Rock as me liking all the same movies & music & definitely having the same fuck you attitude. The death of trans activist Lily Summers in 2016 is another bereavement I find myself getting moist eyes about, me & Lily were on different sides of the Labour Party but a great deal of what she warned about in regards Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the party has come true. I was recently reminded of a photo of me taken in a pub on New Year’s Eve 1999 along with 5 other drinking buddies, 20 years later I’m now the only one still alive, let us just say the deaths of those 5 chums weren’t due to natural causes, I don’t know sometimes I think I suffer from survivors guilt because I do often think how comes I’m still alive despite all the hard liquor I’ve drunk & all the illicit substances I’ve ingested.

Lemmy the world is duller place without him

This of course was the decade we lost Lemmy, he truly was the last of the troubadours who didn’t give a fuck, he just lived sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll to the fucking max. Lemmy was the very embodiment of sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll, definitely one of my ultimate rock & roll heroes & this world is a far duller place without him. Politically this was the decade we lost Charles Kennedy who I ironically once met in a bar sometime around 1998, he was a thoroughly decent man & in my opinion the last great leader of the Liberal Democrats, I remember back in 2003 he took a principled stance as Lib Dem leader in opposing Tony Blair’s ordering the involvement of the British military in the illegal invasion of Iraq, no other leader of a major parliamentary party did so & there were other prominent members of the Lib Dems such as former party leader Paddy Ashdown (who died last year) who supported the invasion of Iraq, so it was a brave stance he took & the right stance he took, he spoke for me & millions of people in opposition to Blair disgracing this country with the military misadventure in Iraq, Charles Kennedy might no longer be with us but I still applaud him for the stance he took.

I remember Lemmy died right at the end of 2015 & considering what a rock icon he was his death seems to have been a precursor to 2016 the year of the celebrity death what with the passing of David Bowie, Prince & George Michael etc. When historians look back upon this decade, 2016 will be seen as the pivotal year of this decade & not because it was the year Alan Rickman & Carrie Fisher died, but because it was the year of Brexit & Trump.

Back in 2009 I wrote an article for a news site which no longer exists, in which I essentially predicted the rise of the far-right during this decade, well both Brexit & Trump were a consequence of the rise of the far-right with all the hate & intolerance which comes with the far-right. You telling me that Brexit & Trump weren’t motivated by racism, Jesus fucking Christ don’t you recall the rhetoric which plumbed the depths of racist intolerance during both the EU referendum & the Trump presidential campaign?!?! Actually the truth as to what caused both Brexit & the election of Trump is the lack of investment by successive governments (including left of centre governments) in communities which had already spiralled ever downwards into being shitholes, people being constantly fucked in being denied any decent opportunity of bettering themselves & in waltzes the narcissistic egomaniac likes of Donald Trump & Nigel Farage telling the ill-educated poor & desperate living in those communities that its immigrants or people merely being different to them who are to blame for them being constantly fucked!

Brexit & Trump were a product of far-right opportunism, but that opportunism was given to them by the failure of the left, oh it’s definitely not been a good decade for political left that’s both the radical & mainstream left. Wonder whatever happened to the Occupy Movement, oh yeah they went the same way which Extinction Rebellion will be going, as in into historical obscurity having accomplished fuck all, I’m not saying street protests never accomplish anything because the Poll Taxes riots (& yes I was there) of nearly 30yrs ago were the beginning of the end for Margret Thatcher, but ultimately it will always be electoral politics which effects real change & how the mainstream left has failed spectacularly on that score this decade. Labour have lost 4 General Elections in a row this decade, sure the 2010 defeat was deserved as whole Blairite project had run its course & people wanted a change, the 2015 defeat well all Ed Miliband as Labour leader was offering was regurgitated Blairite shite which amounted to Tory lite & people just thought fuck it why not just have full fat Tory, some might want to somehow spin the 2017 defeat as some kind of victory yeah sure Labour did better then any pundit was expecting but it didn’t prevent the Tories in continuing to kill thousands more disabled people did it, as for the 2019 oh fuck we are all still reeling from that one being its one of the worse General Election defeats for Labour despite the Tories having been government for practically a decade.

Me with Jeremy Corbyn back in 2015

It seems a lifetime ago when upon that second Saturday in September of 2015, Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader by a landslide & all us redder then red socialists got drunk as fuck thinking here starts the revolution, but here we less than 5yrs later & well the revolution is down the fucking shitter & on the brink of entering the 2020s I’ve never been as scared as I’m right now about my future as a consequence of being a disabled people. It’s disabled people who Labour have ultimately failed, I’m not saying disabled people should from now on never vote Labour again because of course they should continue voting Labour, what I’m saying is that Labour have failed disabled by not winning elections & thus not being in government & so not putting an end to the Tory genocide against disabled people.

The Official Tory policy when it comes to caring for the disabled

The most dismal thing of this dismal decade has been the scale of the Tory genocide against disabled people, yes I knew when the Tories were elected to government in 2010 they were going to make disabled people pay for the reckless behaviour of their banker chums which the decade previous had caused a global financial crisis. But I never thought it would result in the murder of a 100,000 plus disabled people nor the architect of the government program which has resulted in genocidal levels of disabled people being killed would be receiving a fucking knighthood in the 2020 New Year Honours!

I actually hate writing this kind of ‘year in review’ or ‘decade in review’ type article, not because often end up to be lengthy pieces, but there’s always stuff you forget to mention no matter how many notes you make. Dale Farm, the war in Libya, the riots across Britain in the summer of 2011, Chelsea Manning & Julian Assange, all important stuff which hasn’t gotten mentioned in depth with this review, I guess to sum up this review of the past decade would be to describe it as the stuff which had the biggest impact on me or just that I can’t write about everyfuckingthing which has happened this decade.

Thanks To Fascistic Trump I’m Now Immobile For Christmas

I recently received this bullshit disabilist tweet from somebody who’s quite obviously a Tory troll.

Yes of course I must be lying my fucking arse off about being disabled because I’m not dribbling whilst sat in a wheelchair 100% of the time unable to comprehend the world. I can most definitely testify from personal experience as disabled person that the disablist attitude exhibited by this Tory troll is sadly pretty prevalent amongst the general populous, people really do seem to think that unless you’re not visibly sat in a wheelchair 100% of the time then your bullshitting the world about being disabled. What’s particularly irksome isn’t just that many people can’t grasp not all disabilities are visible & that those disabilities which are invisible are often the most debilitating of disabilities, it’s the contradictory bullshit of accusing disabled people of using whatever disabilities they suffer from as an excuse in not making enough effort to do whatever but then accusing disabled people of lying about being disabled when they do make an effort to do whatever, in other words when I do make effort to get out & about to do whatever despite being disabled I’m accused of lying about being disabled yet if I didn’t make an effort to get out & about to do whatever because of being disabled I’m then accused of using my disabilities as an excuse to be lazy, seems to me cynicism has replaced compassion regards the general attitude of people in this country towards disabled people.

For the record I suffer from multiple disabilities (not all of which are visible) including physical disabilities effecting my mobility, for the record whenever I have attended any protest or parade in London I’ve more often then not been laid up unable to walk for more then day afterwards, but it’s not just the next few days I’m going to be laid up unable to walk as a consequence of having attended yesterday’s Anti-Trump demo in London but I’m going to be immobile for the entirety of Christmas due to having tripped & fallen & in process knackering my right knee as well as spraining my left ankle.

yours truly at yesterday’s Anti Trump demo prior to busting my knee

When I tripped & fell as the anti-Trump demo was setting off from Trafalgar Square to march on Buckingham Palace where Queen Lizzy was hosting a reception for Donald Trump & other NATO leaders, it wasn’t the pain from having tripped & fallen in the manner I did that had me in floods of tears, but the police & stewards who’d gathered round me to see if I was okay misgendering me as ‘he’, which was kind of frigging ironic as I was attending this Anti-Trump demo to represent trans people as Indeed I have when I’ve attended all the other Anti-Trump demos I’ve managed to attend over the past couple of years.

With yesterday’s Anti Trump demo there were activists giving speeches about all usual leftwing concerns you’d expect activists to be making speeches about at an Anti-Trump demonstration, justice for Palestinians, fuck off NATO, Trump is a racist & Islamophobe & a misogynist, all which being a redder then red socialist I of course agree with, but there wasn’t one LGBTQ activist or more specifically trans activist speaking from the platform yesterday thus no mention of Trump’s rabid transphobia despite it being more then fucking evident that from the moment he took office his administration has been waging a war against trans people. Though Paris Lees did get to speak at a previous Anti-Trump demo back in the summer of 2018 which was attended by 300,000 people (me included) usually there’s been an absence of trans or even LGBTQ speakers at the Anti-Trump demos there have been & generally when it comes to antifascist demonstrations. Don’t the Stop The War Coalition or Unite Against Fascism or the Socialist Workers Party or whichever leftwing activist group who’ve been organising Anti-Trump & antifascist demos not know Trump is being a colossal cunt towards trans people, do they not think the rise is the far-right isn’t an increasing threat to LGBTQ people & specifically trans people?

It’s because of the lack of LGBTQ representation & specifically the lack of trans representation there has been from platform at Anti-Trump & antifascist protests which is exactly the reason why I attend these kind of protests waving a Trans Pride flag like a motherfucker & why there needs to be far more trans visibility amongst the demonstrators at these sort of protests as a reminder trans people are very much threatened by the rise of the far-right in fact more so then any other section of the LGBTQ community. Some might pooh-pooh my personal efforts to increase trans visibility in the fight against fascism making bollock all difference, however to my surprise a trans friend who ‘s a working-class Tory actually applauded me for my efforts in trying to increase trans visibility when it comes to demonstrating against Trump. It’s certainly not a good thing to have busted my knee thanks to Donald Trump being a fascist fuck, but having a Tory of all people appreciate me for the effort I’ve made in trying raise trans visibility when it comes to protesting Trump well that actually means a great deal to me & goes a long way to making up for the physical agony I’m having to endure this festive season.

Giving The Finger To Trump Is More Then Just About Hands Off Our NHS

Donald Trump arriving in Britain last night with wife Melania

Donald Trump arrived in Britain yesterday evening in Britain for a NATO summit & this afternoon thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people will be gathering on the streets of central London to say no to NATO, no to robbing us of our NHS & generally telling Trump the fascistic cunt to FUCK OFF.

NATO might be the longest standing military alliance in world history (so we are told) with the current summit here in Britain being attended by Donald Trump as well as leaders from other signatory member nations, the purpose of which is in part to mark or commemorate the 70th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty’s inception. But post the Cold War what has NATO become other then hired goons for the Military Industrial Complex, there’s a country full of poverty stricken people with brown skin but has an abundance of natural resources usually predominately oil, then NATO is always ready to go bomb & plunder & generally leave the country in a far worse state. Weird how Nigel Farage wants the UK out of EU, but has no problem with us being part of NATO, despite the fact that it’s stipulated with the North Atlantic Treaty that an attack on one signatory member state is attack on all signatory member states, thus if the United States is attacked due to its dubious foreign policy then that entangles the UK militarily.

I guess NATO bombing the shit out of countries full of poverty-stricken people with brown skin to plunder their nation of it’s natural resources, won’t be the primary reason the majority of people will be protesting in central London this afternoon, no I’d imagine the primary reason the vast majority of people will be protesting Donald Trump will be the revelation that the Tory government have been in secret negotiations with the Trump administration to give American corporations ‘full market access’ to the NHS.

It was Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who last week of course held a press conference where he revealed 400+ pages of documentation revealing the Tories have indeed been in secret negotiations to give ‘full market access’ to the NHS in a proposed free trade deal with the United States & ‘full market access’ is code for the privatisation of the NHS, so no fucking wonder people would want to come onto the streets to protest fearful that post Brexit we could see the end of this nation’s most treasured institution & one of this nation’s greatest achievements.

Despite Corbyn having produced documented evidence that the Tories are planning the privatisation of the NHS, granting Trump & his billionaire vampirical capitalist buddies access to be able to have a feeding frenzy in its privatisation, the Tories response to this has been to accused Corbyn & Labour of fearmongering, spreading fake news & propagating a conspiracy theory. I think the Tories know an awful lot more than Labour this General Election campaign when it comes to spreading fake news, as for conspiracy theories, I seriously doubt Jeremy Corbyn gets his news from Infowars or is a regular listener to Alex Jones’s radio show, however Donald Trump does appear to be an avid reader of Infowars & in the past has seemed awfully friendly with Alex Jones.

I’m certainly fearful as fuck that in a post Brexit Britain we could see the end of universal healthcare particularly as less then 2 years ago I suffered a heart attack & thus I know from very personal experience about the NHS saving lives, I’ll certainly be protesting this afternoon against Trump robbing us of the NHS, but I’ll also be there because I’m a trans woman & no trans woman can forget the war on trans people being orchestrated by the Trump administration.

This afternoon in central London I’ll waving my Trans Pride flag, as Trump’s administration since the very the moment he took office has seemed to have had a particular prejudice against trans people, crushing legal protections for trans people & supporting laws which discriminate against trans people in the United States. I just know some fuckwit is going to ask me how does the Trump administration persecuting trans people in the United States affect me as a trans person living in Britain because apparently I shouldn’t care about trans people if they don’t live in Britain. There is such a thing as the ‘Trump effect’ which has reached these shores in the form of the homophobic/transphobic protests there’s recently been outside schools in Birmingham, which no doubt have been spurred on due to funding from the Christian Right/Far-Right in the United States who feel emboldened because Trump the fascistic bigoted cunt is in the White House.

Does Donald Trump Want To Turn Greenland Into A Prison Camp For Liberal Dissidents

Donald Trump has announced on Twitter that he is postponing his trip to Denmark originally scheduled for a couple of weeks’ time because the Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has said the Danish government aren’t interested in discussing the United States purchasing Greenland, of course as per fucking usual Trump is acting like a petulant spoilt child because he can’t because he can’t get what he wants, but I’m bemused as to why the fuck Trump & his administration would actually be wanting to purchase Greenland?

I’m sure somebody will explain to me that Greenland is of strategic military value to the United States government blahdy blah, but I’m actually wondering if the real reason why Trump might be interested in purchasing Greenland is to turn it into a prison camp for liberal dissidents opposing his brand of fascism.

I know some people will be thinking I’m joking or I’m sounding way too Alex Jones by saying Trump might want to turn Greenland into a prison camp for dissidents, but why should it be considered a joke or kooky to suggest Trump might start imprisoning political dissidents when its glaringly fucking obvious that Trump is a fascist fuck & this is what fascist fucks over the decades have tended to do with political opponents whenever they’ve controlled the apparatus of government.

The Trump administration have continuously sought to remove far-right White supremacist nazi scumbags from extremist watchlists despite far-right extremism now being the biggest US domestic terrorist threat & then there’s Trump threatening to have Antifa proscribed as a terrorist organisation the very political activists who are the most militant in opposing far-right White supremacist nazi scumbags, but of course it’s far-right scum who are some of Trump’s most rabid supporters whereas Antifa as well as militantly opposing far-right scum who happen to be a crucial section of Trump’s supporter base are also steadfastly opposed to Trump’s rhetoric of hate & intolerance which is feeding the mindset of far-right White supremacist nazi scumbags & inspiring mass shootings & mosque attacks.

Trump becoming ever more a fascist fuck

It truly is straight out of the nazi playbook to be categorizing political opponents as ‘terrorists’ or saying they’re mentally ill which is something else which Donald Trump has done with those who politically oppose him. Granted that even liberals I know think antifa are a bunch of violent troublemakers, but I’m not just talking here about any antifa activist possibly getting sent to Greenland, I’m talking about anybody who isn’t a angry ignorant White male wearing a MAGA baseball cap, look at the war the Trump administration have been waging on the LGBTQ community, the war he’s waged on the rights of women, the war he’s waged on immigrants, for fuck’s sake immigrants including young children are already being chucked in concentration camps along the United States border with Mexico, oh then there’s rumour that Trump might be floating the idea of using gun control legislation as an excuse to disarm people who have an afflation with any group deemed as politically leftwing, this is all adds up to being very fucking reminiscent of Hitler & the Nazis, so really is it that much of a stretch that Trump might be wanting to purchase Greenland so he can turn it into a prison camp for political dissidents or even if the Danish government say get lost to the idea of the US government purchasing Greenland that the Trump will be imprisoning political dissidents elsewhere.

Leftwing Concerns About Gun Control

Far-right GOP gunsexual bigoted crackpots such as shock-jock Alex Jones love to propagandise that all liberal lefties are anti-masculine sandal wearing & granola munching vegetarian politically correct peacenik hipster commie fascists who are all anti-gun, yep I’m guilty as fuck of being a sandal wearing politically correct peacenik commie & enormously proud of it, because I appreciate as a Jewish trans woman with physical disabilities feeling relatively safe doing the weekly grocery shop without the need to arm myself with a Glock or Beretta or a fucking AK47 out of fear for own self-protection, but of course I live in the United Kingdom not the United States, however none of my politically lefty liberal friends living in the United States are in fact anti-gun, actually one of my lefty liberal friends living in the United States expressed real concern about the current White House administration having nefarious motives if it ever did opt to push for gun control.

Generally most on the left of the political spectrum in the United States are in favour of there being tighter gun control measures, in fact the vast majority of both liberals & conservatives are in favour of there being tighter control measures, measures such as background checks on anybody purchasing a firearm to prevent criminals & those who are mentally ill from purchasing a firearm, this of course is usually interpreted by the likes of Alex Jones the bigoted gunsexual crackpot as the hyperbolic ‘the feds are coming for your guns’ bullshit which he continuously propagates on his radio show & Infowars website because actually having common sense gun control measures to prevent those who are unfit to possess a firearm from actually purchasing a firearm is an infringement upon his constitutional right under the Second Amendment blahdy-blah because the deranged fucker can’t get sexually aroused without fondling an AR-15 assault rifle blah, but despite it sounding way too Alex Jones, it probably is extremely valid for anybody on the left of the political spectrum in the United States to fear the motives of the Trump administration if it ever did propose there being greater gun control & particularly how they would class somebody as being mentally unfit to own a firearm as Donald Trump & his crazed supporters seem to think anybody who disagrees with them is mentally ill.

Be very weary of the true motives to any gun control measures Donald Trump Proposes

It’s straight out of the fascist playbook, fascist despots throughout history have made out political opponents are mentally unhinged & then disarmed them, considering Trump is a neo-fascist fuck who’s currently sitting in the White House I can see why those on the left of the political spectrum in the United States who oppose him & his fascistic bullshit might fear any support he gives to there being greater restrictions on gun ownership having the nefarious motive of wanting to disarm them as the first step to brutalising or erasing them, of course this is pretty much the same argument we’ve heard over the years from the far-right whenever there’s a Democrat in the White House or when the Democrats control Congress & are proposing tighter restrictions on gun ownership though there is one crucial difference which is liberals & those on the left of the political spectrum are far more likely to be targets in any mass shooting in the United States when its politically motivated. When was the last time you heard of a social-democrat picking up a gun & going on a killing spree, yeah fucking never, it’s always some ignorant unhinged far-right scumfuck full of hate who seems to carry out these mass shootings when they’re politically motivated & it’s Donald Trump who’s helping to ape these scumfucks to go on killing sprees with all his racist bilge as we saw very recently with Trump being quoted in ‘the manifesto’ which the El Paso shooter wrote to repugnantly justify why he was going on a killing spree, so regardless of Trump any time soon pushing for tighter gun restrictions to disarm political opponents as one way or another it has fuck all chance of getting any kind of approval from Congress, it’s simply Trump’s rhetoric which is encouraging far-right loons to target political opponents with bullets.

In the week which has followed since a White supremist nazi terrorist shot dead 22 people & injured 24 others at a Walmart store in El Paso, another scumbag far-right dickhead was detained on this past Friday & charged with making a terrorist threat after walking into a Walmart store in the Missouri city of Springfield heavily armed & wearing body armour claiming they wanted to find out if Walmart still honoured the Second Amendment & this isn’t the only story I’ve read of far-right loons pulling similar bullshit this past week & causing a mass panic at a time when emotions are on edge, all things considered you just know it’s not if but when another far-right scumfuck loon manages to go on another killing spree in the United States.

Sadly it really is only matter of time before some other ignorant unhinged far-right scumfuck does go on a killing spree with an assault rifle, because Donald Trump or Alex Jones or QAnon have fed their fevered crazed minds with fake news bullshit about liberal America being their enemy, so no wonder those on the left of the political spectrum living in the United States might want to arm themselves to the fucking teeth fearing unless they do then they might not survive the weekly shop at the local supermarket.

Considering the current political climate I can appreciate why politically leftwing friends of mine living in the United States are scared shitless for their own safety & I can appreciate out of fears for their own safety why they might opt to arm themselves & question the motives of any gun control legislation proposed by the Trump administration, but the problem for me is they’re falling the trap of paranoia which the arms industry profits from, the paranoia of thinking you need to buy a firearm for self-protection because some other fucker living down the street also has an assault weapon & you never know what their intent is for owning it, trouble is if you’re on the left of the political spectrum or openly LGBTQ or work at an abortion clinic or an immigrant worker that paranoia is very much the reality.

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.
