Owen Jones Is The Latest Victim Of Far Right Terrorism

Guardian columnist Owen Jones was attacked last night when leaving a pub in London having been out celebrating his birthday with a group of friends, by all accounts this appears to be a premediated targeted attack against Owen by far-right thugs.

Owen Jones is one of the good guys as far as I’m concerned, because as well as being a top journalist Owen has been an awesome advocate/activist for greater social-justice & equality & this has included being a first rate trans ally, he’s somebody I’ve met on numerous occasions over the years at various political rallies & he’s very much aware of who I’m & appreciative of what it is I do, so I’m particularly shocked & appalled that an journalistic acquaintance & political comrade has been the latest victim of far-right terrorism.  

yours truly with Owen Jones back in 2015

The attack on a mosque in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, the mass shooting at Walmart store in US city of El Paso, the attack upon a mosque in the Norwegian capital Oslo, these are all recent far-right terrorist acts, Owen Jones is sadly just the latest victim when it comes to the increasing trend of far-right terrorism & yes the attack on Owen was terrorism because that is what textbook definition of terrorism happens to be when you either threaten to use or actually use violence & intimidation in the pursuit of achieving political aims.

Some far-right fuckwits will doubt a bunch of fascist thugs being politically motivated to beat the shit out of Owen Jones is an act of terrorism despite it falling well within the textbook definition of terrorism, but of course these are most probably the same far-right fuckwits who on social media are saying Owen is bullshiting about having been attacked, despite the fact the police are treating this as a serious enough incident to warrant an investigation & so don’t you think Owen being a public figure would be in frigging serious legal trouble if he had lied about being attacked by a bunch of fascist fucks, not to mention Owen would lose all credibility & integrity which he has if he was found out to have lied & thus he’d be out of job so absolutely not in his own interests to have lied. If it’s not sickening enough for far-right fuckwits to propagate Owen Jones is lying about being kicked in the head by fascist scum then it’s Owen Jones deserves to have the shit kicked out of him for being a hard-left agitator because he thought Tommy Robinson & Nigel Farage getting milkshakes chucked at them was amusing, firstly I’d hardly describe Owen Jones as ‘hard-left’ in fact one of my complaints of Owen is he’s often not had enough bite & has come over as far too much of a woolly jumper lefty, secondly nobody is going to die from having a milkshake chucked at them whereas somebody can die from being kicked in the head & I don’t recall Owen ever saying he thought it was amusing when milkshakes were chucked at Nigel Farage & Tommy Robinson during the European Election campaign nor do I remember him ever condoning such tactics.

I guess it was fucking inevitable that one of those on social-media doubting that Owen is telling the truth about being attacked last night by far-right thugs would be Katie Hopkins who is by far the vilest of vile far-right trolling cunt motherfuckers! It’s in fact Katie Hopkins along with the likes of Nigel Farage, Donald Trump & Alex Jones who are but a few of the far-right hatemongering gobshites who’s preaching of hate & intolerance with stochastic-terrorism which is what’s encouraging attacks on the likes of Owen Jones.

The bitter irony is that it’s the likes Owen Jones who wants to genuinely help to improve the lives of White working class people by campaigning against effects of austerity upon the White working classes in Britain & the lack of opportunities due to neoliberal capitalism which has them angrily lashing out by supporting the far-right, whereas it’s the far-right fascistic likes of Katie Hopkins, Tommy Robinson & Nigel Farage who’ll do fuck all to improve the lives but will exploit their anger driven by a lack of opportunity & importantly a lack of education amongst the White working classes to enrich themselves & feed their sociopathic personality disorders of hate by duping those White working classes into thinking it’s the fault of other oppressed people for simply being different to them.

In response to the attack on Owen Jones, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott tweeted “The times we live in are increasingly dark & dangerous”, the far-right with their ideology of hate & intolerance have definitely become an increased menace to civil society, we know about the attack on Owen because he’s a high profile public figure, but what’s scary is there are probably many incidents of ordinary citizens not in the public eye who’ve been subjected to violence & intimidation by far-right for opposing hate & intolerance which we aren’t aware of.

Move Over Owen Jones Because It’s Time For This Trans Woman To Have A Rant About The Transphobic Abuse Being Directed At Munroe Bergdorf

There has been yet another annual rise in reported homophobic & transphobic hate-crimes in the UK, alarmingly the amount of stalking, harassment & violent assaults LGBTQ people have been subjected to has more then doubled over the past 5 years. I find it more than a coincidence that the dramatic increase in homophobic & transphobic hate crimes has coincided with the rise of Nigel Farage as a far more prominent figure in British politics & consequentially Farage being given a far greater media platform which has been an opportunity for him to propagate far-right bullshit, because not only has Farage done a number in turning the masses into Brexit precious Brexit Gollum type creatures, he’s helped to make bigotry socially acceptable including bigotry towards the LGBTQ community.

Owen Jones this past week interviewed Munroe Bergdorf & it’s not a comfortable watch, in fact it literally made be cry the first time I watched it, it was seriously distressing for me as a trans woman to see Munroe’s own emotional distress which has come as a consequence of being subjected to unwarranted abuse & discrimination for being a trans woman of colour, subjected to abuse & discrimination for simply being herfuckingself!

Owen is definitely a good guys, he’s over the years been a first-class trans ally & it was obvious he’s also upset & angered by the transphobic bullshit which Munroe has been subjected to & the resulting emotional distress it’s caused Munroe, but my issue with Owen isn’t just he wears woolly jumpers, it’s he’s way too woolly jumper, in fact it’s my criticism of mainstream left that it’s all a bit too woolly humpers & cups of tea & being ever so nice & not having enough bite, when it’s Punk Rock bite which is required in battling the escalating threat of fascism!

I realise that if you work within the corporate mainstream media you have to play by their rules, the likes of Owen Jones have to play nice to get published, yeah well I don’t work within the mainstream media & nor do I want to, so I can rage like a motherfucker & so move over Owen Jones because I’m a trans woman who desperately needs to motherfucking rage about the transphobic shit Munroe Bergdorf has been subjected to.

Oh of course they’ll be sexist dickheads who’ll try to undermine the legitimacy of my gender identity as a woman by saying my foul mouth aggressive manner isn’t very ‘ladylike’, hey sexist dickheads my feminine role-models weren’t Marilyn Monroe or Barbara fucking Cartland, they were Ellen Ripley in Aliens or Sarah Connor in T2:Judgment Day, they were all female Punk Rock bands like L7 & Rock Bitch, so fuck you to the self-appointed arbiters of how women should be, it literally is what makes you such a fucking expert on womanhood. It is these self-appointed arbiters of not only how trans women should be but how cis women should be which are very much at the route of the problem, they’re transphobic & misogynistic bigots!

Misogynistic bigots will of course be busying themselves right now pooh-poohing the FIFA Women’s World Cup currently being played in France & transphobic bigots are as per fucking usual whipping up bullshit paranoia & fear about trans women using women only spaces or doing likewise about trans women indoctrinating children into being trans. One reason I don’t write purely about trans issues as the tendency with many journalists/blogger who are trans, is the prospect of having to endlessly write the same crap time & time again about the bogus hatemongering & fearmongering bullshit which transphobic bigots propagate that if you let trans women use the women’s toilets & changing rooms then trans women will sexually assault cis women, if it’s not that bullshit you find yourself dispelling again & again then it’s the lie being propagated by transphobic bigots about trans women working with impressionable children in schools or community centres or wherever else as a means of brainwashing children into thinking they’re trans, but here I’m defending Munroe Bergdorf who was removed as the face of NSPCC’s first Childline LGBTQ campaign after there was whole load of bitching from transphobic bigots about her helping to indoctrinate children into thinking they’re trans.

Munroe Bergdorf & yours truly at Brighton Trans Pride 2018

Munroe is one of the sweetest & most positive trans women I’ve ever met, in fact she’s one of the sweetest & most positive women I’ve met period! I’m certainly angry, extremely fucking angry about the abuse which has been directed at Munroe, knowing how much of a sweet & positive person she is & that she’d have genuinely wanted to help children who might be in distress due to coming to terms with being LGBTQ, but all this has also angered me because it’s touched a raw nerve with me about my own childhood & coming to terms with being trans. No trans woman brainwashed me into believing I was trans, I vividly remember watching Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman when I was 4yrs old & I instinctively knew I was meant to have been born with female genitalia, I wasn’t allowed to transition in my early teens when I found transsexuals were for real as these were the dark days of Section 28 & that caused a severe amount of pain during my adolescence, now we seem to be returning to those dark days of Section 28 with all the current transphobic rhetoric abound & fuck knows how many more trans children will have their lives fucked up as mine was if they were prevented from transitioning.

The trans community has come out swinging for Munroe Bergdorf, with the exception of the India Willoughby, but I can’t say I’m surprised considering India voted for Brexit, supports Nigel Farage, ah I see a pattern emerging considering the colour of Munroe’s skin, yeah India you racist truscum cunt will you please shut the fuck up!

Tory Scumbags & Slimeballs Now To Outcompete Each Other To Be Anti LGBTQ

I’ve decided that not all Tory leadership candidates are scumbags, some such as Michael Gove & Jeremy Hunt are far more Slimeballs then scumbags, though of course I think all the Tory leadership contest are first class cu…

Mark Harper is the latest Tory MP to have put himself forward to be a candidate in the Tory leadership contest, to which my response is Mark Who? Despite the fact I think Iain Duncan Smith should be in prison for the tens of thousands of disabled people he killed when instituting ‘welfare reform’ whilst DWP Secretary, I agree with him that with there being so many candidates in the Tory leadership contest (& possibly more to come) it has become chaotic & farcical & something of a three-ring-circus, but unlike Iain Duncan Smith I’m quite happy to see the Tory leadership contest descend into being a chaotic farce.

Tory leadership candidates now trying to out do each other on who’s more anti LGBTQ

As for those candidates already involved in the Tory leadership contest, well they’ve moved on from who’s got the biggest hardon for Brexit to more worryingly for me as lesbian trans woman to who’s more anti LGBTQ, Esther McVey has said ‘parents know best’ on LGBT lessons & Dominic Raab has declared he’s not a feminist & opposes reforms for trans people, well Esther McVey is barking fucking mad & should be in jail sharing a cell with Iain Duncan Smith for the cruelty she inflicted on disabled people whilst a minister at the DWP, as for Dominic Raab well on last Sunday’s edition of the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show he said he was not in favour of economic or social rights which essentially is a polite euphemism for saying fuck the poor, fuck the disabled & yes fuck trans people & the wider LGBTQ community.

A fellow trans activist said to me the other day that I was out the loop when it came to the recent attacks on trans & LGBTQ equality as I seemed more interested in other stiff, it’s not as if I’m not interested in the attacks on trans & wider LGBTQ equality, in fact I care quite deeply about LGBTQ equality & the plight of LGBTQ people, but at the same time I equally care about the plight of disabled people & the persecution that’s been inflicted upon them by this Tory government, in fact I care about human rights period whether they be social or economic which is why the slim chance of Dominic Raab replacing Theresa May as Prime Minster fills me with dread. I’ve certainly been keeping somewhat in touch with the anti LGBTQ protests by religious fundamentalists at Birmingham schools, which of course is a reference to the story about Esther McVey has said ‘parents know best’ on LGBT lessons.

Hilariously the far-right despite being as homophobic & transphobic as any religious fundamentalist, have attempted to hijack the opposition to the anti LGBTQ protests at Birmingham schools for their own racist agenda, by for instance launching dogpile social-media attacks on Guardian columnist Owen Jones for not saying enough as a gay man in opposition to these protests when in fact if they bothered to check Owen was one of the first to voice opposition, obviously the reason the far-right object to these protests isn’t any love they have for LGBTQ people but hatred of Muslims who appear to the majority protesting there being LGBTQ education in Birmingham schools. Thing is objections & protests to there being LGBTQ education in schools has spread further afield then Birmingham & its not just Muslims who are objecting & protesting there being LGBTQ education in schools, I saw a report on the BBC’s London edition of Sunday Politics show last weekend where a Hasidic Jew was objecting to his children being made to attend LGBTQ education lessons & was threatening to pull his kids out of school & possibly leave the country over the issue, to which my response is go on then fuck off you homophobic bigot if that’s the way you feel, yes some would be right to say I’m intolerant to intolerance & proud to be so. I don’t care if you are a Jew, Christian or Muslim or you prey to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, you’re belief in a make belief sky daddy isn’t an excuse for bigotry & whatever is written in some stupid crusty old book you reckon is the word of your make belief sky daddy doesn’t trump secular law, Now before anybody says to me Britain isn’t technically a secular society because church & state are intertwined, I already know this which is why I support disestablishmentarianism otherwise known as the separation of church & state, but the point is generally in contemporary Britain we are pretty much a secular society which respects secular values, meaning with the odd exception (namely religious headbangers) that people generally respect the rights of LGBTQ people & that’s a good thing believe me.

Mystical sky daddies aren’t real but the lives of LGBTQ are very real, how would it be viewed if a bunch of White people started protesting schools teaching Non White history, me thinks it would be viewed as racism pure & simple, so it most definitely should be viewed as homophobic/transphobic for people protesting there being LGBTQ education in schools & homophobia/transphobia should rank equal to racism on any scale of bigotry there might be & there should be just as much of an outcry towards homophobia/transphobia as there is about racism.

As for the Tory scumbags involved with the Tory leadership contest having a pissing contest about who’s more homophobic & transphobic, well there is a bit of playing to the gallery going on, I mean there is plenty of homophobia & racism (particularly Islamophobia) amongst the Tory grassroots just as there is support for tax cuts which some Tory leadership candidates have been promising to implanted if elected to replace Theresa May knowing no way could they implement those tax cuts if they became Prime Minister with Brexit on the horizon, still it’s unpleasant & sad to see the Tories revert back to being somewhat anti LGBTQ when the one good thing David Cameron had done as Tory leader & Prime Minster was make the Tories far more progressive in supporting LGBTQ people.
