Beware: @TheDSGGroup is a woman hating bigot

A couple of nights ago I told a misogynist to fuck off because he said that there is no oppression in the UK, today my account has been suspended. I gave him 10 examples and he responded with misogynous fatphobia. One of his white followers immediately added me to a list ‘fugly’ and a bunch of others liked the abusive tweet.

In a week where right wing Asians have been demanding we all find the appointment of tokenistic South Asians in a racist cabinet a win for the disapora, Dick Swinging Git fulfilled his tokenistic role by denying oppression faced by the majority. I had to object.
“creatures like you”
This is what we mean when we say tokens are put in place by the white supremacist state to further oppress marginalised groups by denying their experiences. As if I’d want to ‘come together’ to talk oppression with an oppressor.

Non violent non abusive men would never speak to anyone like this, even in an argument. Not saying he would be justified if in fact I was fat, but as a slim size 8, it hits home even more, because it doesn’t matter what the reality is, gendered violence is so ingrained in society, men use fatphobia to neg us into submission. To be so casual in his attack, he wasn’t in the least bit worried that it would backfire, it’s probably served him well in the past.

Tokenistic poc have the power to flip it back and claim we are the real racists, for daring to broach the subject of oppression.

I’m Asian. I’m a genuine leftie (none of this neoliberal tory in disguise nonsense) working class, I left school at 16 yet despite this my last salary was almost 30K. I have what it takes to ‘make it’, a better grasp of English than most of the natives, I can sing, write and draw, I am hard working, diligent, and I look for solutions, I fix things or I can create new things. I have not been rewarded for my skills and abilities because I refused to step on the heads of my peers to achieve personal success.

@theDSGgroup has no such scruples, he is a small business owner who claimed to be a socialist and has amassed something like 8000 followers. He was all on board the Corbyn train until Jezza announced he would be introducing a living wage, then his principles dissipated and suddenly went full Brexit. He is everything that is wrong with Britain, the selfish attitude of someone who has only ever put his own needs first. Someone who plays the game because actually, he couldn’t bear it if people didn’t like him.

He doesn’t think I am racist but he got me suspended for racist misconduct. Can’t make it up.

When I blocked him he started hounding me from another account. Bearing in mind I have just been suspended for directing hate towards privileged right wing Asians, in a move that is entirely predictable on the part of Twitter, I was advised that harassment against me did not break the rules.

I’m done being upset by Twitter’s arbitrary rules that consistently reward bigots and disproportionately affect already marginalised people.

There is absolutely no point in my challenging this, or reacting emotionally because it will fall on deaf ears. I’m just going to make another account when I’m back from holiday and can be bothered.

In the meantime I would advise all conscientious socialist minded people raise awareness about this weasel on the left. I found I shared 5 followers with him, some of my mutuals had many more. Just give his TL a read and see for yourselves.

On the matter of oppression:

Footnote: Is it a coincidence my suspension comes on the same day Mark Field has been excused for his violence against a woman activist?

Knife Crime is a Symptom of the Hostile Environment™

The rise in knife crime across the UK is baffling only to those who never consider the impact of their actions on others. Perhaps those who find it incomprehensible are lying, they know exactly why, they just don’t care. The government has promoted an hostile environment, it is of their creation, the current crisis.

Our young people are growing up in a society that has actively encouraged division and sowed discord where they could have fostered tolerance and understanding quite easily. I know, because that was my childhood in the 90s, a multicultural melting pot where brown and black people were rooted in British culture and Britain absorbed the best of ours too. It was some kind of rose tinted utopia pre 9/11, when laws protected us and racists were afraid. There was a clear sense of right and wrong. No blurred lines on racial slurs and racist propaganda. It’s not that racism didn’t exist (which it always will) just that measures against hate were enforced by the system somewhat. Slurs were asterisked in print for example. ‘Accidental’ racists were shunned not excused. The BBC exposed the institutionally racist police force, ffs.

The Bobo doll experiments in the 1960s demonstrated that children learn by observing adult behaviour. 60 years of knowledge we have so far failed to implement in the running of our societies. Kids today are witnessing hatred and bigotry on mainstream news channels from mainstream politicians. They’re being told their differences make them a target. Safe spaces are denigrated, we’re special snowflakes for insisting on them and toxic patriarchy is all about ‘real men’ who don’t carry babies in papooses. There is no end to the constant violence and posturing, grown adults are upping the ante everywhere, no compromise, no resolution, just a burgeoning threat that is overwhelming our children’s senses, affecting their ability to cope, leading to poor impulse control, because they’re frightened and have not yet learnt to channel that appropriately. Grown adults in the government are actively targeting children in their policies; so many plunged into poverty this past decade, so many denied an opportunity to learn, their days passing by in a blur of boredom and fear. Is it any wonder they’re dying?

Sajid Javid said we should treat knife crime like a disease when it is just a symptom of another kind of affliction, that is, social cleansing implemented by his government. It can be treated. Their hostile environment has seeped through to the children who will suffer most as a result of Tory policies, long after the monsters are gone. As a child born under Thatcher I know only too well. That brief period in the 90s when we had positive black and brown role models on TV on all of the terrestrial channels, when shows like Goodness Gracious Me clapped back at the white population and it was received in good humour, when we actually believed that hard work and motivation was all you needed to succeed, we felt we had a place in this world and only time would reveal our fortunes. Children these days have no hope, that’s the message they’re bombarded with, that the planet is dying but experts are no good. They’re going to school to learn but they’re being told learning is worthless. There’s no guarantee of a job, or a life. They matter to no one. They’re injured by these feelings and they react.

This tyrannical government must be removed from power and held to account for the many thousands of British citizens who’ve died under this administration, by any means necessary. Fuck calling the army in, oust the unelected tyrant and choose community. End austerity and replenish local services. Bring back the education maintenance allowance and cut extortionate uni fees. Invest in our young people, they are tasked with rescuing the planet and what remains of our humanity. One day they’ll have to look after us.

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.
