Did you know that in certain European countries it is illegal to display any sort of Nazi symbol? What the fascist white supremacist neo-Nazi scum of Germany, France, etc. have been doing is displaying the Confederate flag instead, because there is no ban on it.
So the next time someone tries to tell you that the flag of the Confederacy has nothing to do with racism, remember that actual Nazis are using it as their preferred symbol, and please remind them that they are actually pieces of literal shit.
Omg…I’ve been craving donuts…😭
So I decided to make these two images to compare your typical Hamas rocket strike in Israel, to your typical Israeli missile strike in Gaza
The first is of a Hamas rocket exploding in Israel. No damage, no shockwave, tons of smoke, and that’s it. This is because Hamas rockets do not even contain a warhead, and in order to sustain any sort of damage or injury, you must basically be hit DEAD on.
The second is of an Israeli airstrike decimating a home in the Gaza strip.
The IDF claim that Hamas has launched around 800 rockets into Israel, with about 20% of them being intercepted by their Iron Dome missile defense system. They also claim that they have launched strikes on over 1000 targets in the Gaza Strip.
800 Hamas rockets - ~200 intercepted, leaves us with 600 rocket attacks on Israel, attacks carried out using mortars like those seen above.
Compare that to 1000 strikes launched by the Israeli “Defense” Forces, carried out using missiles like those seen above.
It doesn’t matter how “kind” the IDF is in warning Gazans to “flee” or to “seek shelter”, Israeli missiles will simply decimate anything and everything they come into contact with, and there is no place to hide.
get it straight, ya idiots
Anonymous: I'm legitimately confused. If Israel were committing genocide, wouldn't they have done it already? They definitely have the military power.
"Done it already"? What do you mean? See, this is the problem. Because most people only have the Holocaust as a frame of reference for genocide, they think if it doesn’t look like the Holocaust then it isn’t a genocide.
Duration, intensity, and number killed does not determine whether something is a genocide. A genocide could take place in a few months, or it could go on for a century. It could involve crude weapons or intricate systems of extermination. Death is not the only measure of genocide, and so long as people are being systematically targeted simply because they are from one racial or ethnic group, can you really put a number on how many people killed is too much?
Destruction and appropriation of culture is a method of genocide. Theft of indigenous water, land, and resources is a method of genocide. Segregation and humiliation is a method of genocide. Concentrating people into densely populated spaces, bombing neighborhoods, flattening power plants, and destroying schools as refugees sleep in them is a method of genocide. Pouring wine down someone’s throat when his religion forbids it while he and his family are stopped at daily checkpoints is a method of genocide. Pouring gas down a boy’s throat and burning him alive is a method of genocide. Funding and producing movies, domestically and abroad, that show one group of people as barbaric, terrorists, homophobic, sexist, uncivilized, backwards, and so on, is a method of genocide.
Israel has been committing genocide against Palestinians for nearly a century. I would argue that they also committed genocide against the Lebanese. The United States committed genocide against the people of Iraq, starting with Clinton. Genocide is being committed against Latin@s in the American South. Genocide is still being committed against Black people, and the prison industrial complex is working hard to continue it. Is it any surprise that police officers from New York to Chicago to LA train in Israel with their finest and best? Is it any surprise that Israel is the largest exporter of drones as the US continues killing children in Pakistan and Yemen? They are one and the same, genocidal settler colonial states from the start.
Genocide is a system of deprivation and destruction that takes on many forms. Anyone that tells you any different is protecting someone, or themselves as they benefit from it.
note to self
Porn teaches men they are gods. Pop culture teaches men that the epitome of success is to be surrounded by naked women, fawning over you. Prostitution exists because we, as a culture, very much believe that women exist to pleasure men. We tell women that they have to “work” in marriage, to keep their men happy, to keep them from straying — buy sexy lingerie, try threesomes, try anal, perform every porn fantasy he has — he needs it, he deserves it, it is your job.
We can continue to skirt around these truths — that the sex industry and our patriarchal culture breed men like Rodger — but expect more violence, more deaths, more rape, and more abuse. Our world is rife with Elliot Rodgers. We create them every day. They aren’t going anywhere.
Male entitlement begets male entitlement: On Elliot Rodger, misogyny, and the sex industry (Feminist Current)
Meghan Murphy articulates, not for the first time, how male entitlement to women’s bodies is devastating and dangerous for women everywhere.
John Brosio is a painter based out of sunny Pasadena, California, USA. Brosio’s work has a very subtle humorous element that caught my attention, and I definitely appreciate his wit in combination with this awesome painting abilities. What the hell do you do when a giant octopus is just chilling on top of your house?
Hyuna makes a new video featuring apes, monkeys and giant bananas galore. This is kpop, though, so of course between scenes of her riding giant bananas, running around with said apes and such she just has to throw in a black dancer dancing in a totally fetishized and exotified manner dressed with a leopard skin bandana around his head as well for maximum racist effect. The antiblackness in kpop really knows no bounds.
Not only do your “biases” make shitty music, half of which are terrible rip offs of black music anyway, but they are racist as fuck too. And all of you oppalogists who will inevitably flock to my inbox can just go to hell. Search my “kpop” tag and you will see the dozens of times I have dispatched with you and your flaccid excuses for blatant racism before. The moment that your stars actually start respecting and recognizing the full humanity of black people is the day we can talk. And Hyuna with this bullshit is exactly the reason that I rarely listen to kpop anymore.
I thought I was the only one who noticed.
get fucked, cops
