So, after speaking at today's rally, I was mobbed by fascists trying to swing punches and who spat down my neck (I know right, yuck, fascist spit!) Thanks to the comrades who kept them at bay. Again, not intimidated by these fash, we are going to defeat you 💪🏻

Earlier they were yelling “rent boy” (honestly, it’s my Twitter mentions in real life), so I had to yell them they’re not my type

I presume this is now my new normal, so a special thanks to the political and media elite who have whipped up fascism, well done you! But the real issue is the minorities who are hounded by these scum on our streets, and who don't have a platform. We need to give them solidarity

It's not very creative homophobic abuse these fascists are yelling at me, is it?

Thanks to all the right-wingers and so-called "centrists" telling me they don't like me but I don't deserve this, that's so gracious of you!

Have to admit, it was pretty funny when 'Where Is The Love' by the Black Eyed Peas started playing during all that 😱🤣

Are right-wing protesters in England now wearing yellow vests? that's pretty interesting....

It's complicated. The yellow vest has become an anti-establishment symbol and both left and right are contesting its meaning. The leftist demo I spoke at was itself a self-styled 'yellow vest' march. For the far right it's an anti-"globalist" emblem.

The far right who've hijacked the yellow vest here don't realise that all French citizens, by law, have to have a yellow hi-vis jacket in their car. In Britain, they're cosplaying as blue-collar workers.
