Acting Like Animals to Be Recognized as People.
“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.”
Feminists love that most sardonic quote, but it’s a little ironic, I think. You see, to me what separates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom is the ability to reason and not be driven by emotion or instinct. Many feminists don’t fit that criteria.
I’m starting out with that to prove my point, I’m going to receive so many hateful reblogs stating that I’m being sexist, misogynist, hateful, etc…but really everything I do in this blog is so that feminists will see it, understand what I’m saying and recognize the amount of hate that exists in their movement and do their part to reduce it. They want to be respected and not be objectified by men, but they see transgressions against them in the smallest of things, and they act so hateful and violent towards anyone who disagrees with anything they say.
Furthermore, humans are the only animals that can actually READ…so if feminists really wanted to be considered people, why don’t they ever exercise the ability to read and maybe understand that anti feminists aren’t necessarily hating them based on their gender, or even hating them at all, but trying to help them. Why is it when I used Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s quote to tell them that they shouldn’t be so hateful and have such violent outbursts towards perceived enemies they saw fit to accuse me of using Dr. King’s words for my own hateful agenda? My agenda was the opposite of hateful, and she’d known that if she could actually read. This is why people can’t take feminists seriously, they demonize everything! I HAVE NO HATE-FILLED AGENDA! I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP FEMINISTS!
If I can help just one feminist realize that hate is not the answer, then I’d probably have some hope in this fucking world. Really.
Zionist filmmaker in hiding after protests
An Israeli filmmaker based in California went into hiding Tuesday after his movie attacking Islam’s prophet Muhammad sparked angry assaults by ultra-conservative Muslims on U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya, where one American was killed.
Speaking by phone from an undisclosed location, writer and director Sam Bacile remained defiant, saying Islam is a cancer and that the 56-year-old intended his film to be a provocative political statement condemning the religion.
Protesters angered over Bacile’s film opened fire on and burned down the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, killing an American diplomat on Tuesday. In Egypt, protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy in Cairo and replaced an American flag with an Islamic banner.
“This is a political movie,” said Bacile. “The U.S. lost a lot of money and a lot of people in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we’re fighting with ideas.”
Bacile, a California real estate developer who identifies himself as an Israeli Jew, said he believes the movie will help his native land by exposing Islam’s flaws to the world.
“Islam is a cancer, period,” he said repeatedly, his solemn voice thickly accented.
The two-hour movie, “Innocence of Muslims,” cost $5 million to make and was financed with the help of more than 100 Jewish donors, said Bacile, who wrote and directed it.
The film claims Muhammad was a fraud. An English-language 13-minute trailer on YouTube shows an amateur cast performing a wooden dialogue of insults disguised as revelations about Muhammad, whose obedient followers are presented as a cadre of goons.
It depicts Muhammad as a feckless philanderer who approved of child sexual abuse, among other overtly insulting claims that have caused outrage.
Muslims find it offensive to depict Muhammad in any manner, let alone insult the prophet. A Danish newspaper’s 2005 publication of 12 caricatures of the prophet triggered riots in many Muslim countries.
Though Bacile was apologetic about the American who was killed as a result of the outrage over his film, he blamed lax embassy security and the perpetrators of the violence.
“I feel the security system (at the embassies) is no good,” said Bacile. “America should do something to change it.”
A consultant on the film, Steve Klein, said the filmmaker is concerned for family members who live in Egypt. Bacile declined to confirm.
Klein said he vowed to help Bacile make the movie but warned him that “you’re going to be the next Theo van Gogh.” Van Gogh was a Dutch filmmaker killed by a Muslim extremist in 2004 after making a film that was perceived as insulting to Islam.
“We went into this knowing this was probably going to happen,” Klein said.
Bacile’s film was dubbed into Egyptian Arabic by someone he doesn’t know, but he speaks enough Arabic to confirm that the translation is accurate. It was made in three months in the summer of 2011, with 59 actors and about 45 people behind the camera.
The full film has been shown once, to a mostly empty theater in Hollywood earlier this year, said Bacile.
What is the real reasoning behind North Carolina's anti-gay legislation? Why, preserving the white race OF COURSE
Chad Nance, a Winston-Salem freelance journalist who is currently active in electoral campaigning, says poll workers outside the early voting site at the Forsyth County Government Center in downtown Winston-Salem reported to him that the wife of NC Sen. Peter Brunstetter remarked today that her husband sponsored legislation to put the marriage amendment on the primary ballot “to protect the Caucasian race.”
Nance said he recorded a conversation with the woman, whose name is Jodie Brunstetter, on video, and that she confirmed that she used the term “Caucasian” in a discussion about the marriage amendment, but insisted that otherwise her comments had been taken out of context by other poll workers.
Nance until recently served as campaign manager for Matt Newton, a Democratic candidate for the 12th Congressional District. Nance announced on Facebook today that he was resigning from the campaign because of Nance’s reaction to his plans to publicize Jodie Brunstetter’s alleged remarks. The Newton campaign has not responded to an e-mail request for comment about the resignation.
Nance has been working as a volunteer poll worker for the campaign of NC House candidate Ed Hanes Jr. and the campaign against the marriage amendment. He is a primary source for an unrelated story published by YES! Weekly about efforts to manipulate Democratic voters for the benefit of a favored slate of candidates. Nance said an African-American poll worker identified only as “Michael” initially told him about Jodie Brunstetter’s alleged remarks during a conversation with opponents of the marriage amendment.
Nance paraphrased the remarks, as told to him by those who were present: “During the conversation, Ms. Brunstetter said her husband was the architect of Amendment 1, and one of the reasons he wrote it was to protect the Caucasian race. She said Caucasians or whites created this country. We wrote the Constitution. This is about protecting the Constitution. There already is a law on the books against same-sex marriage, but this protects the Constitution from activist judges.”
Nance said he recruited a friend, who works for the Coalition to Protect All North Carolina Families, to witness his interview with Jodie Brunstetter. He said Brunstetter reluctantly acknowledged that she had used the term “Caucasian” and then repeated the statement previously attributed to her, but substituted the pronoun “we” for “Caucasian. Nance said Brunstetter insisted there was nothing racial about her remarks, but could not explain why she used the term “Caucasian.”
I can only think of one thing after reading that article in my last post.
Ron Paul may have read too much Crime and Punishment.
The poor and minorities are not Raskolnikov. You, Dr. Paul, however are the pawnbroker and you are a paranoid and hateful old man.
**Little side note that I’d rather have people delete if they are going reblog: I plan on writing a longer post on this, I just had to get it out there. I just have to refresh myself on some of the finer points of Crime and Punishment and some other sourses that I don’t want to let know just yet [plus I have some studying to do for my last exam tomorrow], so expect more on this in the future.**
Angst Rant, Ow, Angst
Just to be clear, I’m writing this because I need to just get some hell off my chest, and this is the easiest outlet. I’m not suicidal, or causing myself harm in any way. I just need an outlet.
How do you we live in a world, where other humans can show such malice, and content, and evil, as to attain their wretched goals, no matter the coast? Even when it destroys so many lives? Kills an eye year old little boy? A classroom full of 6 year olds? 2 towers, filled with thousands of people? A campus of high school students? A village filled with innocent women, children, families, who want to just live their lives without fearing the war, just miles from their home?
How can someone take pleasure, in beating their wives, husbands, children, pets? Beat a dog to the point that it becomes mean, and knows nothing but killing other dogs? Take an orca calf from it’s mother, just hours after it’s born, and separate them the rest of their lives? Drill holes into their teeth, force them to perform day in, and day out, and numb them to the extreme pain their ulcers cause, just so that they will continue performing in a too-small tank, so they can turn a profit? Beat a horse to the brink of it’s existence, just to make it go a little faster? Herd a group of dolphins, into a cove, and slaughter them in cold blood? Catch a shark, cut off just it’s fins, then throw it back in the water, still alive? Shoot a dolphin or whale or shark, because it’s eating “your” fish?
How can a person, take such sadistic, twisted pleasure, in kidnapping a girl, tying her up, and molesting and raping her, then send her dead body back to her family, broken, and bloody? Beat a man to death in the middle of the street, with a rock, just because he’s gay? Pedophiles? Rapists? Murderers? Serial killers? Hate mongers? Homophobes, transophobes, anything-different-ophobes?
How is it, that we continue to live in a world, where all of this, and worse, exists?
But the better question, how is it, that so many say they care, yet sit by and do nothing about it?
There are petitions that can be signed, rallies and peaceful marches that can be walked, and organized. Letters that you can send into your local government officials, to the President, to international governments. Mistreated animals that can be adopted from your local shelter, picked up out of the gutter down the street from your house. There are police you can call when you hear a child, a woman, a man, a gay, a lesbian, a trans, an elderly, a teenager, an Asian, an American, an African American, a person with freckles, a dog, a cat, a horse, being beaten, mistreated, raped, hurt, abused.
You don’t need to have money, power, age, to take a stand for something you believe is right. If you believe in something, fight for it. Believe in it. But most importantly, show that you care. It doesn’t matter how, but find a way. Look up information online, talk to your local law enforcement, send a letter to your House representative. Talk to your friends, and family, to anyone who will listen.
If you believe in something, talk about it. Spread the word. Make a website. Start a Facebook page, a Tumblr account, a Twitter. Use social networking, that’s what it’s there for.
Islam isn't a band
After that post from that “Ban Islam” page on facebook i decided to check it out for myself. Holy shit dude. thats the biggest hate mongering page I’ve ever seen. It slings so much hate it makes me look like a care bear with separation anxiety.
Seriously, it goes on about how much Muslims are these freedom hating anti-American monsters but when you start reading some of the comments by the people who like the page, are 10x worse! it realyl is sickening.
Is this what the US was all about?
