The Tories are planning to carry out a snap election to determine leadership for the next four years. It has been almost 40 years since we last had one and they are often called by the ruling party in a time that they believe is best for them in order to galvanize their position in government.
This is based on their own interpretation of public opinions and chances of victory. In other words, they are very confident of 4 more years of Tory oppression.
But we CAN prove them wrong!
Please, make sure to spread the word, make sure people are registered to vote and keep up to date with policies and mandates that will be put forward. Its only day one and already things are firing up, so lets keep that momentum and bring about some goddamn change for the better here.
It’s as we all thought. Jon just sucks at debate. He was actually trying to point out the hypocrisy of identity politics being anti-white when being white is just as legitimate of an identity. He’s not against immigration, he’s only against mass immigration. He explicitly states he’s not an ethno-nationalist while admitting he understands that, from his wording, people would be mistaken.
This is what happens when you buy into the dog whistle narrative that Trumps immigration rhetoric was “only” targeted towards the (imaginary) “bad hombres” who were taking over the country and putting drug cartels on every corner.
And that by buying into this “bad hombre” racist respectability politic bullshit, you thought that were somehow protecting your family from said racism.
That somehow racists will value your family over all the other families that they hate, (and are separating) based on race, due to your proximity to whiteness.
History tells us that proximity to whiteness not only isn’t a protectant, but often makes marginalized folks bigger targets.
Racism doesn’t defend or protect against racism, and respectability politics really only works to benefit white supremacy - sorry to tell you.
I am so triggered by clocks. They’re white and all of the work is done by black hands, plus the ticking sounds like a whip cracking. We as a society should not have to live with the patriarchal method of telling time any longer! From now on, time should be based on whatever time you feel like it is.
