I’m not the only one within the LGBTQ community to have noticed there’s recently been an upsurge in hostility towards LGBTQ people & it’s pretty obvious from coverage given by the mainstream-news-media that as part of the upsurge of hostility towards LGBTQ people there’s a specific campaign of hate against trans people to have equality on par with the cisnormative majority, all of which has come about as consequence of Donald Trump being in the White House & the war his administration is waging against LGBTQ people in the United States & that war having a particular emphasis on victimising trans people. Homophobic/transphobic bigots this side of the pond feel emboldened by Trump’s war on LGBTQ, some of whom are in fact getting funding from far-right Fundamentalist-Christian & extreme social-conservative groups in the United States to ratchet up the homophobic/transphobic rhetoric amongst the mainstream political discourse in this country & the fear is how much this increase in homophobic/transphobic rhetoric will influence thinking within the ranks of the Tory Party which despite over the past 15 years making strides in being far more LGBTQ friendly still has a sizable homophobic/transphobic element amongst its membership as well as its electoral base.
On the day after the 2019 General Election when the cold
hard reality of Boris & Tories having a whopping parliamentary majority was
setting in for many of us in the LGBTQ community, I saw a trans activist post on
Facebook that the game has changed for LGBTQ folk & now “rather than
fighting for additional rights we’ll be defending what we have”. The signs do
indeed look ominous for the LGBTQ community with regards to there now being a
Tory government with a whopping parliamentary majority, because not only is
there now a glut of homophobic & transphobic bigots on the Tory backbenches
who can cheer on anti LGBTQ wankers at the heart of this rotten Tory government
such as Jacob Rees Toff amongst others I could mention & now without any
sense of irony Boris
Johnson has appointed Caroline Nokes who voted against same-sex marriage as
parliament’s new LGBTQ & equalities
In response to Caroline Nokes being appointed the new LGBTQ
& equalities czar despite having voted against same-sex marriage, a tory
supporting trans woman said to me it might not necessarily be because Nokes is
a homophobic as to why she voted against same-sex marriage, hey I don’t care
what reason whether it be religious or political as to why any MP justified voting
against same-sex marriage, the bottom line with me is fuck you for denying
LGBTQ people the same equality as heteronormative/cisnormative society.
Wake the fuck up Tory trannies! Look hard at the
bigoted fucks you’re current swimming in the same political direction as &
quit it with the cognitive distancing, David T.C Davies Welsh Tory MP has
aligned himself with Woman’s Place UK a known transphobic hate group, Sally-Ann
Hart the Tory MP for Hastings has alleged there’s a Muslim conspiracy to make
people transgender, I could go on about the numerous backbench Tory MPs who are
known to espouse some pretty repulsive transphobic bullshit, but I know Tory supporting
trans women will say that the Labour Party is just as bad & unfortunately
there is some truth in what they say, which is why I welcome leadership
contenders Rebecca Long-Bailey & Lisa Nandy pledging to expel those Labour
Party members who espouse transphobic bullshit.
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.
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’.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
(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.
