Earlier today an English Labour Party MP named Jo Cox was shot, stabbed and beaten while doing her weekly surgery (meeting with members of the public to discuss current affairs/issues) by a 52 y.o. white male who allegedly shouted “Britain First” (the name of a racist, xenophobic, far-right, fascistic “party” - think the Tea Party if they were all drunk uncles from Glasgow) during the attack and during his arrest.

She was airlifted to hospital. She died there.

Cox was an advocate for the Remain (in the EU) campaign and for accepting refugees into the country, and was married with two small children. She was murdered in the street by a right-wing terrorist. This is the first time a British MP has been killed in 26 years (though there have been attempts since). The last one? The victim of an IRA bomb.

To paraphrase a friend, this is what happens when you allow fascists a platform. You can whine about free speech all you like, but when people are allowed to spread their hateful rhetoric, it will never stop at sound and noise. There will be victims. People doing their jobs, going about their lives, who will have the opportunity to go home to their families taken from them, violently, just because of deluded, violent people’s actions.

i dont know what else to say. i hope everyone is doing okay. hmu if you wanna talk
