I’ve been straight edge for the last… 21 years? I don’t preach about it because each to their own but I do recommend this beautiful book. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6852219-sober-living-for-the-revolution
I watch a US YouTuber called PotatoJet, he’s a video expert. He recently broke his arm skateboarding and he revealed the bill for it to be fixed: $44,000.
That’s what we will be expected to pay if the Tories kill the NHS or hand it to Trump, as they’re planning to. If you can pay for health insurance, maybe you can lower that to six grand. Maybe.
Can you afford that? I know I can’t.
This is a Labour win in a 61% Leave-voting area!
Since Labour won, this victory will *not* be attributed to Corbyn or Labour party policy / campaigning. If Labour had lost, we’d have no fucking end of ‘Corbyn must go!’ bullshit from the liberal and Tory press, from every anti-socialist source possible. They’d be crowing whereas now they’re silent.
Funny that, eh?
I just got back from the Dump Trump protest and I’m fucking knackered and falling asleep but I had to process and post these pics while they were still **now**, you know what I mean.
Already, I’ve seen complete bullshit in the bourgeois media, saying that only “hundreds” were protesting.
Were were there in our THOUSANDS not hundreds, the protest was calm and good -spirited. Here all my pics:
So, remember, if you want the truth about a protest, got to the people who were actually there!
Caster Semenya has lost a landmark case against athletics’ governing body meaning it will be allowed to restrict testosterone levels in female runners.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) rejected the South African’s challenge against the IAAF’s new rules.
But Cas said it had “serious concerns as to the future practical application” of the new rules.
Semenya, 28, had said the regulations were “unfair” and that she wanted to “run naturally, the way I was born”. (Source: BBC News)
This is utter fucking bullshit and an act of barbarism against any athlete who is intersex or DSD. The IAAF *seriously* wants athletes to take un-natural hormones to counteract their NATURAL hormones? FOR FUCK’S SAKE!
As much as idiots want there to be a binary sex / gender division, the truth is that it is scientifically false.
These people were murdered by a Nazi. All the Nazi apologists out there, the alt-righters, Pewdiepie fans, Gamergaters, MRAs and assorted racist edgelords… this is the culture they have created.
Tory MP Nigel Evans spent his life savings defending himself in court, after voting to reduce legal aid spending by 40 per cent, and is now calling for a reversal of the decision.(Source: Joe Co)
He said he would now vote against the cuts brought in by the Conservative/Lib Dem coalition, after false accusations of rape and sexual assault over a 10-year period forced him to spend £130,000 in legal fees.
The basic problem with all Tories is that they have zero empathy. They only understand suffering if *they* directly experience it.
If they’re okay, fuck anyone who’s not, that’s their fault. If they’re not okay, everyone should help them. It’s a weapons-grade solipsism.
It’s also a uniquely childish mindset socialists leave behind around the age of 7 or so. Nice children know how to share.
I was out in Mosh again last night, having a lovely emo time. I was with a couple of friends and another had gone to the bar.
He came back with Racist David in tow. Yes, Racist David who thinks this is the height of comedy ->
I was dumbfounded. When I’d flagged his bullshit up, he never once tried to apologise or even backpedal on his hate-peddling. If he had even once said, ‘Oh, sorry, I totally shouldn’t have posted that’ or ‘it was a stupid mistake, I don’t really find it funny’ then I would have been fine. We ALL make mistakes, we ALL say stupid shit that we instantly regret but we OWN IT like adults. And we apologise and try not to be such a dick in the future.
But not Racist David. He was totally okay with what he’d liked. It was funny! Consequently, I was cast as the “touchy Asian” who should really learn how to take a joke.
Obviously, 90% of the white people I knew from Mosh, people who I thought were okay, sided with the racist. Because, that’s what white people do with racism: they support it. Hey, how else do you think it keeps going? White people with racism are like men with patriarchy – they enable it, they benefit from it and they defend it. Sure, they may say they’re anti-racist but they don’t actually mean that, they’ll never actually do anything when, say, they have to disconnect from a racist friend.
So, here I am, face to face with David the dickhead. I tell him to fuck off. He doesn’t. So I repeat it, it’s a noisy club, after all. The third time, he does, indeed, fuck off.
I stood my ground. I didn’t let a racist make me move. I will not be moved. When it comes down to it, if he hadn’t moved, I would have made him move.
If you’re non-white and reading this, you’re probably just shrugging wearily internally cos, hey, you know what it’s like. We have to struggle every day just to exist, to live without insult and attack, we have to struggle against those who would dehumanise us. It’s a never-ending drip of micro and the occasional macro aggression.
If you’re white, I’d ask you: what are you doing to stop racism? Do you laugh along with the racist jokes you hear or do you call out the hater?
It’s a simple choice.
