WATCH THIS: MAN SHUTS DOWN ANTISEMITIC WHITE POWER PREACHER

So my friend Ondi, who still lives in the Boston area, took this video and gave me permission to post it. She writes: “ I stood there for twenty minutes, easily. Hitler Youth kept trying to preach about “the evils of the Jews” and the big guy barely let him get a word in edgewise. At one point, the big guy yelled, “I will be here ALL DAY” and the crowd cheered.”

I promise this will be the best thing you see today.

ETA 1: Just to clarify, I think when my friend wrote “Hitler Youth” she was using it as a pejorative nickname for the preacher (because he’s young, neatly dressed, and spouting anti-Jewish hate speech). I don’t think she meant he was actually affiliated with a new wave of the Hitler Youth as an organization—although he’s obviously a raging antisemite, so who the fuck knows.

ETA 2: It turns out that while my friend is a Boston-area resident, this video was taken during a visit to New York. My mistake—I just assumed the video was filmed in the area where she lived, but that was incorrect.

ETA 3: As stated above, my friend Ondi took this video and gave me permission to post it. If you are going to share this video elsewhere on the internet, you need to contact me to get permission from my friend.

Billy Cranston and being unapologetically autistic

Billy Cranston a.k.a the Blue Ranger in the Power Rangers reboot, is one of my favorite film characters, probably of all time. Why? He is one of the first autistic characters I’ve seen on screen, books, or tv. “But, Kate what about all these autistic characters *points to BBC Sherlock and the one line about Aspergers” First of all, stop saying Sherlock’s autistic, Jenny, he’s a poor outdated stereotype in a white man’s circle jerking intellectual fantasy. But what I mean is, Billy is allowed to be autistic. And it’s portrayed pretty accurately, speaking as someone on the spectrum myself. So what’s the difference between Billy Cranston and what we’ll call “Hollywood Autism”?

First of the Hollywood Autistic never quite says they’re autistic. A few hints may be dropped, someone may wonder if they are, but if they’re in any genre that isn’t inspiration porn, it will remain up in the air. Billy says not long after we meet him, “I’m on the spectrum.” No question, no guesswork, he’s autistic. And no one really looks down on him for it.

Secondly, the Hollywood Autistic comes in two flavors: exaggerated caricature, or barely different from an allistic character. The first example is aloof, nonverbal, doesn’t get sarcasm or any jokes at all, hyperfixtates on a certain topic, and is almost always a suburban white boy. If they’re an adult, they’re basically a child in a grown man’s body. The second has one scene where they show autistic traits, and it is completely dropped after that one scene. Billy is neither of these characters. He has special interests that he focuses on (mining, art), the need for a routine (rearranging his pencils a certain way before he can use them), sensory issues (mostly with touch), he doesn’t get sarcasm, and he babbles (which could be interpreted as verbal stimming.) That last one brings us to the fact that Billy is allowed to stim! Stimming is often ignored with Hollywood Autistics, but Billy claps his hands when he gets excited, and babbles when he’s nervous. Seeing a character stim on screen without being seen as weird almost made me cry. And, to top it all off, Billy is black. This may not seem like a big deal, but autism goes underdiagnosed in minorities, and the stereotypical autistic is always a white boy. Billy’s representative of autistics as a whole, rather than the stereotypes.

In conclusion the world needs more Billy Cranstons and less Sherlocks and Sheldon Coopers.

Lionsgate and Saban went out and found five unknown actors with either little or no acting experience (in movies) because a) they want to start a franchise with them and more importantly b) because they wanted their movie to be diverse. And the actors were all amazing. So people can no longer use the excuse of Hollywood only casting white actors because they’re well-known and good actors or because it’s hard to find good non-white actors. It isn’t that hard and Power Rangers showed us that. Hollywood just prefers casting white people in main roles and in non-white roles.

So.. it’s already the second time these words come up in Jack’s videos (after Anti’s appearance). While it’s true that he has played games in which death is basically your end goal so it’s easy to use that word easily, it’s also true that it all sounds a bit.. fitting. Like, it’s a weird coincidence, isn’t it? Also, that little pause Jack (or Anti…?) made after saying “kill everyone” is really creepy. I am veering to the theory that Anti might want more power.. to get to us. Am I just seeing things? haha

You know what’s disappointing? The fact that Ghost in the Shell has made more money than Power Rangers at the box office so far. 

If you want more diversity in Hollywood but you refuse to go see diverse movies like Power Rangers you’re part of the problem (this doesn’t apply to anyone who can’t afford to buy a ticket right now or hasn’t had the time yet, because that’s completely understandable). 

STOP LETTING THIS MOVIE FLOP

  • "No steppy" right-winger: lol how can someone support communism and anarchism at the same time? lol communism is full left-wing and anarchism is full right-wing -- total state control vs no state.
  • Communists and anarchists: *offer detailed analysis of the state, demonstrating that the state exists as a legal apparatus to enforce the class interests of those with power in society; draw conclusions based on this historically-verified piece of information and advocate for the abolition of capitalism so that class relationships can dissolve and in turn the state won't need to exist as a violent apparatus apart from the people, acting in the interests of capital; understand that "libertarian" as a term consistently had this left-wing connotation until establishment-supporting hacks twisted the term for their own material benefit; in turn recognize the left-wing character of both communism and anarchism, as movements that seek the abolition of concentrated power and the free flourishing of each and all*
  • "No steppy" right-winger: animals practice capitalism =) capitalism is literally just anything that doesn't involve the state =) me putting my bow tie on in the morning is capitalism =)

FrostIron AU where Loki returns to New York (probably with Thor and Bruce?) and Loki and Tony form a relationship. Loki notices that whenever he uses his magic Tony gets uncomfortable. Loki thinks it’s because Tony doesn’t trust him, which is false, and Tony eventually tells him that since Wanda messed with his head he’s been paranoid of her powers and anything similar. Loki works with Tony to get over his paranoia and a few years later when Wanda tries to use her power to upset Tony he just shrugs it off and is like, “You don’t scare me anymore witch.” 

Bonus: Loki shows Wanda what true magical power looks like, especially when she tries to use hers to harm Tony.
