Theresa May’s hostile environment has succeeded. Muslims are afraid, asylum seekers are afraid, the Windrush generation and their descendants, the disabled, young people, students, those holding a European passport.. the list goes on. Following her frankly aimless announcement the other day when she shifted the blame for the Brexit farce on MPs, leaving journalists and the general public agog at her impending statement only to dash any hopes they had of resolution or her resignation, we woke up to the news on Thursday that five Birmingham mosques were targeted in a racially motivated terrorist attack. This comes on the heels of a government pledge to double the security fund for religious buildings in the wake of the New Zealand terror attack, following several credible reports that the UK is next.

These apparently random attacks are anything but. Look at the way in which the Brexit debacle has been fanned out to build a sense of urgency and resulting impatience, the rollings news is relentless in its breakdown of every little seemingly irrelevant twist and turn. I’m so jaded by the mainstream news I watch as regular folk are swept up by the narrative because they still think they’re playing by the rules and the comedown they experience when yet again, Teflon Theresa issues a non statement and lives to see another day. She fucked the mandate and survived. Her party, embroiled in tax fraud scandals and electoral fraud continues to hold onto power, despite bringing the country to its knees, at home and on the world stage. Regular folks are plodding by in a daze, completely bamboozled by it all and if they’re criminally minded, as white supremacists are, they’re going to take matters into their own hands. Even her own MPs are speaking out against her toxic narrative, labeling it divisive and an incitement to violence, proving that parliamentarians know exactly what they’re doing when they allude to problematic groups.

Brexit means Brexit they said, which translates to ‘pakis out’. The longer they eke this out the more regular fascists are going to react, because they have been indoctrinated by the media and politicians. Theresa May is a narcissistic sociopath. She didn’t get to where she is through hard work and dedication, she’s manipulative and ruthless. She doesn’t meet with victims of terror attacks, look at the way she treated her own citizens after Grenfell. Even the queen, albeit begrudgingly, rolled up to pay her respects but not the tyrant Theresa. She’s a snake charmer. Her knowing looks down the camera and sneaky side eyes might work on her gammon henchmen but she must be apprehended for her crimes, which are countless. What use are security measures on an environment of her own creation? This is like a really badly written script with no thought for continuity and the only reason it has so far prevailed is because we have let it. Similarly, Farage and his (reportedly) 100,000 strong Brexiteer army are already causing chaos across the UK. Their ‘go slow’ protests on busy motorways are a sign of things to come. This is the entitlement of little Englanders, caked spittle in the corners of their thin lipped gammon traps, who’ll threaten violence against workers striking for better working conditions but turn up like Morris dancers with bells on when there’s some racism to be had.

We can’t afford stuff apparently so 100s of 1000s of needy and vulnerable British citizens have died but throwing millions at mosques because the hostile environment was successful, we’re going to just ignore that are we? Think about how that will impact on fascists. Not because we care about their feelings but because we want to stay alive. Think about this attack on a young person in Stanwell, just going about his business only to be confronted by a horror movie monster wielding a knife and baseball bat. Sajid Javid says he is with us, which is ironic given that his party is squarely to blame for the hostile environment all around us. Add to this the revelation that police forces in the UK are failing to identify almost half of all suspects in racially motivated attacks and you can probably understand why it feels like the worst is yet to come.

Google ‘racially aggravated’ and select results for the last week. These page 11 stories are dotted through national and local newspapers, sporadic and understated so we’re never alarmed at the rate with which they’re happening. If these attacks were being committed by men of colour they’d be splashed all over front pages, given the centrefold, we’d read nothing else for weeks. White ISIS has been allowed to brutalise minorities unchecked and now they’re grown too large to slam on the brakes. I still maintain there simply aren’t the numbers to for one nation to carry this on their own, which is why Nazis have joined forces all over the white supremacist west. This process took years, and could have been prevented.

Intense human suffering is on the horizon. Atrocities we said we’d never see again are billed for the foreseeable. Sadly I don’t think we are going to avoid it. Only once they have committed the unimaginable will we be able to justify a violent retaliation. The Silicon Valley trials has a particular ring to it. I can think of several world leaders I’d like to see rotting in The Hague. I can only hope I will survive long enough to see them brought to justice.

New Zealand’s National Treasure

In the days since the white supremacist terrorist attack on a mosque in Christchurch New Zealand we’ve seen things that have shocked us, angered us, left us feeling helpless. As the British government doubles the security fund for religious buildings to make mosques safer here, repercussions are felt all over the world as we feel them here. However there is one shining light pouring through the cracks, soothing the almost physical pain at times, and that is New Zealand’s human prime minister. Never mind that they’ve just had a terror attack in which so many perished, I want to live there.

From the way she has handled the victims and their families to the reforms she is firing through and the respect and dignity with which she carries herself, knowing exactly the right thing to say and do, well I’d hang up my anarchist hat for her. She refuses to refer to the terrorist by his name, because he wanted notoriety and I love her so hard for that. She labelled it a terrorist attack, actions that place her head and shoulders above our government and media. She is a just leader. She understands coercive power and control and toxic masculinity, she won’t compromise on her values. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern doesn’t believe putting a scarf on her head, as a feminist, is contradicting her beliefs because she’s not doing it for herself, but for them, those who’ve so cruelly suffered in her nation. I’m sure this tiny gesture would have been so lovingly received, in this world the bar is so low that even basic respect is a radical act.

jacinda

I know that my heart flutters when I see her in the news. I feel an affinity with her because she knows right and wrong and how to feel and think appropriately. She’s like Jeremy Corbyn in that respect. I’m sure they would listen to ideas they don’t necessarily believe and could be swayed with logic. I think they’re open to regular people in a way that world leaders the world over just aren’t. The 1% have a lot to answer for.

New Zealand is a place I’ve wanted to visit. Never met a Kiwi I didn’t like. They tell me that it isn’t so great, there are problems lurking under the veneer but then isn’t everywhere like that? Surely what matters is the resistance to these issues? I don’t care that there will always be racists so long as there are plenty of us willing to punch the fuck out of them.

Plus these guys, they’d be good to have on side, don’t you think?

Love to the people of New Zealand for respecting and honouring humanity.

Condemn the Racist Guardian and FB Friends

20190317_191532

In the wake of the New Zealand mosque attack a narrative is emerging that perhaps seeks to minimise the causes for these acts of terror. Facebook has taken down 1.5 million copies of the video clip filmed by the white supremacist terrorist as he slaughtered his victims. The Guardian suggests it is “highlighting the enormous challenge involved in keeping violent and offensive material off social networks”. Funny, I was banned for calling someone a rat on Twitter, I’d had previous suspensions for telling someone to eat his own weiner in retaliation to racist and sexist threats and with regards to fb in particular, I closed my account when I’d had enough of the racist threats to rape me, which fb said did not violate its apparently nonexistent standards.

This didn’t happen in a vacuum, white supremacists didn’t one day decide to say and do all the things they’ve been legalled banned from doing so since 1965 with the Race Relations Act (the act banned racial discrimination in public places and made the promotion of hatred on the grounds of ‘colour, race, or ethnic or national origins’ an offence); this was a long process of normalisation, of proliferation via social media. It was a miscarriage of justice enabled by the institutionally racist police force and crown prosecution service. Freedom of speech doesn’t extend to protected groups, suspensions disproportionately affected minorities. These attitudes were confirmed in national newspapers with even ‘left wing’ columnists claiming silencing and oppression for having bigoted views.

They enabled violent hate speech by claiming it was not islamophobic or transphobic to spout their privileged propaganda. Where is the inquiry into the causes for this breakdown in humanity? Perhaps the very same white supremacists who created this crisis are still in control of the reins and are steering it towards their original objective, white supremacy, self assured in their limitless power?

silencing

Every time we see a white supremacist terrorist in the news they fit the type; worthless useless antonym of supreme kills people for kicks and white people everywhere claim a victory for white dominance. This clash of civilisations was a misnomer, there is no clash of equal strengths, they’re not crashing together like cymbals, it is a death match heavily weighted towards an historical oppressor. It should have been called the White Supremacist Superbug, its resistance to progression and social justice hypothesised as the catalyst for genocide the globe over.

These have-a-go-at-homicide nobodies would stop if one of their leaders went down for their part in the normalisation phase. Indict Mark Zuckerberg for crimes against humanity. Milo Yanofuckface should face charges not just a suspension from travel to Australia, for his comments following the massacre. Tumblr, for eg, has just taken down all its porn posts, essentially losing 1/5 of its user base yet Twitter and FB are hesitant to do the same with Nazis. It is for this reason alone silicon valley bosses have been slow to react to hatred and bigotry; white supremacy is big bucks, whether off the back of a terrorist slaughter or a good old fashioned war, these greedy pigs chose to line their own pockets over tolerance and humanity. Personally I don’t have a problem with porn but Nazis can die in a fire. I’d hazard a guess porn is a bigger money spinner than racist hate but no one wants to have sex with Nazis. 

We antifascists have been begging and pleading with those in power to give this issue the attention it deserves since at least 2012 and look at where we are now. We are still being silenced, still being oppressed and the architects of this injustice (and I include the Guardian in this for their platforming of bigots such as Suzanne Moore, Grace Dent and Julie Bindel to name a few) are revising the facts so that fb deserves sympathy as opposed to our wrath. The problem is the journalists, the tech geeks, the politicians, they all went to the same schools and hit up the same coke dealer for that good Columbian shit and this status matters more to them then scores of dead Muslims. They have more in common with each other than the rest of humanity. We should be joining the dots between the main offenders and figuring out who went to school with who, and who is in possession of whose dirty secret, so that we might get a handle on this shit show once and for all.

(Happy Shamima Begum’s baby died after all, I bet)

Rainy Fascist Sexist Island and Child Protection

So that’s that then, Britain can and will make teenagers stateless. Correction: it will make non white British citizens stateless, because this was never our home. That’s the message I received when news of Shamima Begum’s citizenship being revoked flashed across my phone screen. It confirmed what I already knew, that rainy fascist island doesn’t care about victims of grooming, unless that is, it can use the victims to promote a racist agenda, and Britain can and will expel us, by mob rule it would seem.

To add insult to injury, our knuckle-headed home secretary has added that Ms Begum’s child may be allowed to reside in the UK. This isn’t because he’s all heart, this is a tactic used by the cruel and inhumane authorities in response to pleas for child protection, thinking of the newly born baby who, through no fault of his own, is being punished for the actions of another minor (his mother was 15 years old when she was groomed). This is not new, as an advocate supporting victims of domestic abuse I had many clients who were threatened with the same action. It is a despicable assault inflicted on vulnerable mothers who come to us with many issues only to be told their situation could get much worse. Have you ever seen a mother separated from her baby? What kind of sadistic entity saw fit to pass this kind of ruling? “I know how we’ll cut our numbers down on national assistance, create a loophole in child protection, relinquish any rights towards mothers, if they care so much about the well-being of their kids, they’ll leave them in care and fuck off” (this is how I imagine it went down, expletives an’ all). As advocates for women and children this is when we would use the human rights act to remind the ghouls what being human is all about. The right to family life for instance, the belief that family is better together whatever their circumstances, than apart. This is precisely why the Tories wanted shot of it. Humanity is the answer to everything which is why they constantly seek to dehumanise us.

Knowing what we now know about the child protection system, the sex abusers amongst the establishment using care homes and the like as a sort of home order catalogue, I’m not happy entrusting any child to the state. I would even suggest Shamima’s baby is better off in a refugee camp than it is is Britain’s care homes, and if she can try and find haven elsewhere, then she should do that.

Her comments on hearing the news come across as naive and so very childlike, I have no doubts this young woman has been failed. I hope sincerely she has people working in her best interests and not just using her as a vehicle for something else.

For the rest of us commonwealth folk (who’ve never seen a penny funnily enough) we need to fight the state before it makes the rest of us stateless on a whim. Shamima might seem like a lost cause to y’all, as if you could never be in the same position because you are a law abiding citizen but the state doesn’t make that distinction, it only cares that you are not white. It’s not about to exile the ‘natives’. This law wasn’t created to boot white people off rainy fascist island, it is just one more dirty cannon in white supremacist Theresa May’s hostile environment. A gun for funny tinges.

The Injustice of a Racist Britain

justice

White supremacy is in white people’s DNA. They’ve ruled the waves, they will never be slaves, they do the enslaving. From the toffs to the chavs they whip into a frenzy in the name of white skin, they all BELIEVE they are superior (unless they are actively dismantling white privilege and abolishing the structures that enable it).

You can show them evidence of white people’s crimes and they will minimise it, from the cops to the court system and beyond. The brutal murder and rape of Alesha McPhail at the hands of a 16 year old white male has been fairly muted compared to the sensationalist and somewhat salacious accounts being reported on the matter of jihadist teen brides keen to repatriate. No, I personally do not believe all should be forgiven and forgotten in cases such as these but I do not think we should be making children stateless (or anyone for that matter – NO BORDERS). If we can hide the identity of a 16 year old rapist and murderer who inflicted some of the worst injuries the police have ever seen on a 6 year old baby, a suspect who’s never shown any remorse, and continues to evade justice by perverting the course to it (he says the semen was planted on the child’s body by a vengeful Jezebel), then we can show compassion to a young person who was groomed into her role as a sort of useful idiot. There’s no confidentiality clause for young brown people when they are suspected of committing heinous crimes. No, not when 76% of Sun readers have made their minds up about letting her and the baby rot in their sorry refugee camp. With scenes from the BBC’s Bodyguard fresh in everyone’s minds, brown Muslim women are already condemned as traitors and terrorists, sly and sneaky. Why take the risk eh?

When Asian men groom young white girls everyone is up in arms (eventually) but their primary victims, their wives and daughters and mothers are fair game. Isis teen is born evil I guess, just like all the other darkies. Listening to her though, with the tiniest bit of compassion and understanding of the naive developing mind of a teenage girl (she was 15 years old when she was recruited) and not as an other but one of our own, born and bred, I can see only how she has been neglected and pushed to the limits by a society that has rejected her from the moment she was old enough to understand she was an other, and how easily a predator could have taken advantage of that. She appeals to the British public’s sympathy because that is the image we’re given of white people, they like to see themselves as magnanimous and she is aware of it, as we all are. Sadly I don’t think she actually believes it (as none of us do), but she’s desperate. She has given her newly born child the kind of protection she has never afforded herself. To her own detriment she is appealing for the safety of her child, as any mother would. She needs guidance and rehabilitation not spiteful retribution. People like Maajid Nawaz managed it but I have to wonder, is it because he routinely toes the British National party line on good and bad Muslims? Do you have to jump hoops to satisfy white interests? Swear allegiance to queen and country? A rhetorical question obviously, I can confirm this to be true.

Every day I see more evidence of white crimes, the likes of which chill you to the core and make you not want to step foot out of your front door or have your own children. I had a white lady anti vaxxer threaten to lick me, at one end of the batshit scale and read of threats to lynch women of colour MPs who dare to speak out against Brexit, down the other. I’ve had my own troop of white savages threatening to rape and kill me since a white journalist used an opportunity to deny racism was everywhere. Imagine if Helen Lewis had been sympathetic to our pleas all those years ago or any of her journalist friends instead of throwing us to their fascist following. Are we really going to let the media and politicians get away with the hellscape they’ve created?

Farage has recrutied 100,000 people to his newest fash party. Like all his other ventures into the mainstream this party has only one objective and that’s racism. He’s not building a legitimate party to win a war of words he’s putting together an army. He has threatened violence before. He has denied murderous violence, in the wake of the white supremacist slaying of Jo Cox in broad daylight. He is dangerous and should have already been blacklisted. Why hasn’t this happened?

The liberal/left wing media denied Britain was racist and turned everyone against the people who were trying to wake you up to this reality. Then they claimed antisemitism was the only racism any of us should pay attention to and rushed to the aid of European nationals threatened with repatriation under Brexit, whilst they quietly condemned the Windrush generation to deportation and destitution. They let brown foreign nationals die in hospitals from treatable diseases because their humanity is lost. Everywhere I look I see intense suffering of ethnic minorities and trauma that will span some generations to come and injustice wherever white people commit crimes.

To be a white supremacist is to be inhumane.

Goodbye and Good Riddance ya melts

“History tells us that when the Labour Party splits, it leads to the Conservative Party winning the next election and the one after that and the one after that.” It’s important to notice the words politicians use because they inform our opinions as much as they express the beliefs of the speaker. Sadiq Khan there, reminding us this cynical move by neoliberal entryists is political and can mean only one thing, they’d rather we lose to the tories than take care of each other the way we used to (as Chuka suggests “It is time we dumped this country’s old-fashioned politics and created an alternative that does justice to who we are today and gives this country a politics fit for the here and now – the 21st Century.”)

So the 7 MPs who defected did so with the full knowledge this might irrevocably damage the party and we’re supposed to mourn their exit?

“Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson, in a video message on Facebook, urged the “hard left” to stop celebrating the departure of the seven MPs, saying it was “a moment for regret and reflection not for a mood of anger or a tone of triumph”.

No, Tom Watson, we couldn’t give a flying fuck. I let out a ‘hallelujah’ on reading the news this morning. About bloody time, I thought. Many of us on the left have been renewed by Corbyn’s Labour, not least because he achieved the unexpected, that is expanding the party’s membership to take place as the largest political party in all of Europe but because he is actually a socialist and does actually care about people. Never before have so many ordinary people been compelled to get involved politically because, and I am one of them, there was no one to speak for us before, no one to put our trust in and believe. Politics was for power hungry narcissists in sharp suits with expressive thumbs who promise the world and never delivered. The sort who resign from a political party because of antisemitism yet don’t seem to acknowledge the horrific anti black sexist racism committed against their own MPs, often by other MPs, never mind the many types of racism routinely erased by mainstream politicians. It is laughable that the focus remains on antisemitism because this defection tells me one thing; all the attempts at slandering Corbyn’s left, all the op eds on Labour’s antisemitism to the exclusion of all other injustices, has to date fallen flat. This latest move is as desperate as it gets. Yet still, I can pretty much guarantee, this will not have the slightest impact on Labour’s prospects. People are bored and tired of the same old hypocrites raising their mugs above the parapet, insisting they know better than Labour members whilst demonstrating how completely out of touch they are with voters. We’re not stupid, we know when we’re being manipulated and we’ve had enough.

Sadiq Khan for eg wouldn’t have stood much of a chance if people hadn’t voted for him out of loyalty for the Labour party under Corbyn. I’ve seen the same said about Jess Phillips. There was something very rotten about the way the Labour party conducted itself under Tony Blair, the sorts of things they accuse the hard left of, a hostile takeover with no prisoners. It is these very same Blairites who threaten to destabilise the party with their antics. It is more important to the 7 deadly sins that Labour fails under a truly socialist leader than it is to win. They would rather the Tories stayed in power. Says it all really doesn’t it?

I hope there are more to follow. Frankly I’m a little peeved it’s taken this long for them to haul ass, their presence has been the most tedious. I hope they’re deselected before the next election, I can’t imagine their constituents will vote for the new independents. Alternatively they could just join the tory party and be done.

Update: so Angela Smith decries antisemitism in the Labour party but thinks nothing of referring to poc as having a funny tinge? Get tae fuck, you raving hypocrites, we see you.

MAGA means NAZI

For weeks I have seen this image do the rounds, the hot takes, those for and against the respective parties and I’ve successfully managed to avoid learning anything about it at all. I don’t know the ‘facts’, I don’t have to, not when the narrative writes the pieces and we’re going through the motions, those who would defend the native elder did as they always would have done, and the usual suspects rallied around the white male. I don’t actually care what was said and by whom, over 70% of all communication is non verbal. I read this image with the knowledge of my ancestral history that is further coded in my DNA and informs my emotional responses. The smiling self-assuredness of an almost man wearing a maga hat, a symbol provoking thoughts of strange fruit and dead babies in cages on the border with Mexico, stands in the face of a native elder, holding his ground as only someone so entitled and shameless as a white man could. I don’t care who started it, what brought them to this stand-off, my comments are not open to clarifications.

We all know the image white men present, we know how they would like to be perceived. They’re smarter than us all, they know what’s best for us and they invented everything from the sciences to the arts, even though they had a period of time they refer to as the dark ages (which for us darkies was anything but). Muslims for eg invented poker, chess and alcohol, (whilst Europeans were bedding down in pig sties) arguably 3 of the most celebrated European pastimes but don’t tell Kevin that down the pub. White men don’t like smartarses.

When will we talk about the cognitive dissonance of white men? Maga chump knew what he was doing just like his ancestors did when they rocked up with furs and whiskey. That smile, it makes me very angry. I think maga gammon knows that it will upset non white people because that smile, we’ve seen it before, many times. It says I’m untouchable. It diminishes completely the status of anyone it is beamed at. White people don’t tend to respect their elders or care much for them either, not in the way non white cultures do. People of colour winced at this image because we know the white supremacist has no respect for age or innocence. It will kill our grandparents just like it will kill our babies. Any jumped up pubescent little shit can present themselves as master of the manor.

This Catholic white boy represents religious white men who annihilated entire peoples in the quest for white supremacy. His defenders are racist white supremacists. For every hot take gushing about his deference I see a narcissistic sociopath slapping themselves on the back for this untruthful world they’ve created. The white man exemplifies gaslighting. Wherever they went in the world, under cover of trade deals and friendship they presented themselves as civilised but manipulated warring factions to their own end. They poured fire on natives, literally and figuratively, to cleanse them of their idol worshipping ways and claim white supremacy. I do not see stoicism and good mannered patience, I see seriously twisted emotional detachment. I see a potential serial killer. I see genocide. I see narcissism and generations of unfettered sadism and the resulting intergenerational trauma these yobs can tap into with a flash of their pearly whites.

White men have killed this planet of ours in record time. Native cultures managed to survive well for 1000s of years before white supremacy sucked the world dry of its resources, creating a ripple effect that ultimately hurts people of colour first. A maga hat wearing devil sneering in the face of an earth loving native elder is a snapshot of the last 500 years. If you defend him you’re a racist, and you should probably work on that.
