This fascist is Boris Johnson’s latest employee. If anyone complains, remind them who voted for him

Dominic Cummings did ask for “weirdos” – and that’s exactly what he’s giving us in the former of his fascist advisor Andrew Sabisky.

This maniac was handed a job by Boris Johnson, and has been sitting in on government briefings for a week already. His known beliefs, preferences and pronouncements should tell you everything you need to know about the direction of Mr Cummings’s government.

(Let’s be honest: Boris Johnson is just a figurehead and has been completely sidelined from policy management. The UK is being run by an unelected far-right extremist and now – it seems clear – his fascist helper.)

Consider:

That’s right: Sabisky wanted to sterilise poor people. According to the Huffington Post, he sent that comment to a website run by Cummings – who seems to share the same leanings.

There’s more:

Oh, and he thinks taking an allegedly brain-enhancing drug called Modafinil is “worth a dead kid”. According to the Daily Mail:

“In a 2016 interview Mr Sabisky talks about modafinil – a drug usually used to tackle sleepiness due to narcolepsy but often used as a brain-enhancer.

“Mr Sabisky – who calls himself a ‘super forecaster’ – addressed the drug’s side effects in children which includes a higher risk of Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a life-threatening condition in which a person’s skin dies and falls off.

“He told an interview with School’s Week: ‘From a societal perspective the benefits of giving everyone modafinil once a week are probably worth a dead kid once a year.’

“In the same interview, he said: ‘Eugenics are about selecting “for” good things.”

Eugenics – the policy of selective breeding to enhance some genetic traits and reduce others – was a prominent Nazi policy.

Oh, and he’s a sexist too: “Mr Sabisky Tweeted: ‘I am always straight up in saying that women’s sport is more comparable to the Paralympics than it is to men’s.'”

The Mail on Sunday also reported that Sabisky did not agree that female genital mutilation (FGM) was a scandal.

“It is still unclear to what extent FGM represents a serious risk to young girls, raised in the UK, of certain minority group origins,” he wrote.

“Much of the hue and cry looks more like a moral panic.”

This is the direction of your government.

Fortunately, someone in the train-wreck that we still call the Labour Party has got their act together enough to call for Sabisky’s removal – before he can do serious harm.

According to the Huffington Post (again): “Shadow Cabinet Office minister Jon Trickett said: “There are really no words to describe Boris Johnson’s appointment as one of his senior advisers a man who is on record as supporting the forced sterilisation of people he considers not worthy. He must of course be removed from this position immediately.”

“Number 10 has declined to comment.”

And there’s your problem.

Number 10 doesn’t have to comment – or do anything at all about this – because the UK electorate voted the Conservatives back into power with a thumping great majority, so the Conservatives are going to use it to give us a great big thumping.

With Cummings and Sabisky in the driving seat, you’d better get ready for perverse levels of oppression.

And if any Tory voter turns to you and complains, just remind them:

You voted for this. Own it.

    It just gets worse every day. This Government is unfit to govern, in every respect. Thanks to all those idiots who voted Tory.

  2. Simon Cohen

    This is all fascism version 2.0

    In the 1930’s an economics professor at Harvard, Thomas Nixon Carver, had similar ideas:

    ‘Carver discussed in some detail public education, prohibition to marry for
    those who could not “afford an automobile” and extension of the knowledge of birth control to the “poorer classes” as means to reduce congestion in the lower segments of the workforce. More extreme measures were also contemplated. In line with the harsher style Carver had shown in his Essential Factors of Social Evolution, he went so far as to propose segregation or sterilization of the “palpably unfit” As he put it in a crucial passage:
    Another is to segregate or sterilize the congenital defectives. This is one of the few rational things
    which have come out of Hitlerism. Another may be that Hitler is preparing his people to stand at
    Armageddon as the first line of defense against the inevitable Bolshevik invasion.

    We know, from the DWP policies that human worth is correlated with financial and asset wealth.

    Worth noting Professor Steven Rose’s verdict on CUmming’s grasp of science:

    ‘Cummings’ understanding of modern genetics, IQ, evolutionary psychology, child development and neuroscience, as evidenced by his blog and advice to Michael Gove when education minister, is a mishmash of half-understood, controversial, and sometimes just plain wrong assertions.

    As Cummings argues, politicians need advice from experts, but his deference to the physical and life sciences excludes evidence from the social sciences to its peril (as witness the free school debacle). Beware the autodidact bringing gifts; truly, a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.’

    A thumping great gerrymandered majority

  4. While this odious individual represents an open step into fascism, it cannot be said that the writing wasn’t on the wall for the past 10 years. The Tories have always had a dangerous far right element which rears its ugly class war head every so often. The capitulation to the ERG, and their nasty stable mates the IEA and the links there to the US far right and their access to USA fascists finance has been an open secret since the Brexit referendum. The failure to prosecute those who committed massive fraud and manipulation was, for me, the canary that failed to sing. We are now in the dead zone.

    One wonders what his links to/admiration for Ukrainian neo-nazi groups might be…
