Why I won’t be out protesting Donald Trump’s State Visit

Standard

We are told protesting against Donald Trump’s state visit should be the biggest protest this country has ever seen, but why? Is Donald Trump’s visit the most important issue facing the people of this country? The answer is of course no, Trump is not more important than the dismantling of the NHS, the homeless epidemic, the Windrush scandal, Grenfell, the death caused by cuts, and a million and one other problems which are caused by our own government.

Donald Trump is a slimeball, a scumbag and an all round cunt, but what makes him so special? Is his brand of sexism worse than the fact austerity disproportionately attacks women? Or is his racism worse than the racism that gave us the windrush scandal? Is his neocon geopolitical war hard-on worse than Obama’s, or May’s?

Donald Trump is not the problem, the system is the problem – Trump is a symptom of that system, but what do we hope to achieve by protesting his visit? Is his visit worse than the other dictators and all round shit bags this country has hosted throughout the years?

Will protesting against Trump home the homeless on our streets, or put food in the bellies of those starving and struggling to survive?

Solidarity to the poor brothers and sisters of America fighting against Trump and all that he stands for, but we are locked in a life and death battle of our own, and instead of making that the biggest protest we have ever seen, instead of going after the system which allows men like Trump to thrive, we want to make it all about Trump.

We could remove Trump tomorrow, and it would not change a thing for this country (Or America), people will still be struggling, people will still be starving and we would still be ruled by a elite that doesn’t give a shit about us!

Go along, be a good liberal, give yourself a pat on the back and think you are opposing Trump’s bigotry, but don’t fool yourself in to thinking that the things Trump stand for, and the system he represents are not already normal here.

It is easy to get indignant and kick up a fuss about an issue that relatively will not impact you, but there are a lot of issues facing us which are far more important, and which warrant the biggest protest this country has ever.

Why are we not organising to make May resign? We should be organising to change this country, we should be organising to help the downtrodden and oppressed in our country, right now. Not wasting our time with hollow and empty gesture politics, which will serve little to no practical purpose to the people kicked in to the dirt by our government.

So no, I won’t go out to protest Trump’s visit, not because I agree or want to endorse his politics, but because I think we should be going after the system, corruption and the poverty which is all too real for the people of this country (and America).

Trump – Nukeshake

My tax cuts bring all the boys to the yard
And my button, it’s bigger than yours
Damn right it’s better than yours
We can build a wall, but I have to charge
My tax cuts bring all the boys to the yard
And my button, it’s bigger than yours
Damn right it’s better than yours

I know you want it
The thing that makes me
Just kiss don’t wait
Grab em by the pussy
The way I’m a star
I think it’s time….

Can we really trust a rogue nuclear state like America?

Standard

As the doomsday clock inches ever closer to midnight it’s time we start talking about the biggest rogue state in the world, the playground bully of countries – America. We all need to ask ourselves – Can we really trust a rogue nuclear state like America?

Trump the front man of this medley of destruction, the big baby who has come to epitomize everything that is wrong within our western society, is now getting a hard on over the red button. He has warned fire and fury, while boasting that America has the strongest and most powerful nuclear arsenal it has ever had.

You would be mistaken for thinking that his lines were drawn from some cheesy 80s action film, or that he is trying to emulate the villains of Die Hard, but sadly this is the real world and leaders around the globe will be listening.

After all America has spent the majority of its history at war, it used its position of power and influence post ww2 to web a tangled weave of empire around the globe. Its arrogance and position further elevated once the Berlin Wall came down, as it reigned as the sole superpower.

It has invaded countless countries, it has let nothing stand in its way, taking whatever it wants by any means necessary, be it through force, ‘diplomacy,’ economic warfare or subterfuge. It has used secret services to assassinate democratically elected leaders, it has waged war to protect the interest of American business against sovereign nations, and it has backed military coup after military coup – all in the pursuit of world hegemony.

It is with a sense of irony then that a world order that America created, with it firmly sitting at the top, is now under threat not by a foreign power, but by its own president. The world at large has been enthralled to American power and has watched rather helplessly during the American century, but America isn’t what it once was, if there ever was a time to break America’s stranglehold on the world, surely this would be it?

Surely the UN and other global power players must now be looking at America for what it is; a rogue state and a threat to world peace. I have little faith in these institutions, seeing how tied up they are to the US (they even got away with waging an illegal war). But just Imagine if Putin were making similar comments to Trump, we would be calling for action – yet America as the ruling superpower of the world can do as it pleases.

All empires must fall, and we are slowly seeing the wheels come off of this one. The only question left then is: do we want to be its final victims?
