I had a 9 hour plane journey with nothing to do so I wrote a stupidly long fluffy fic as part of a new series.
Summary: This is based on Lin’s adorable tweet about him messing around on tinder. Old Man Miranda explores Tinder while logged into his friend’s account and has an awkward conversation with Reader. Awkwardness and some fluff ensues. It’’s about time I wrote something that wasn’t totally angsty for a change.
Warnings: Nothing but fluff, but I definitely swear more than I think I do.
Twenty-two million black victims of Americanism are waking up and they’re gaining a new political consciousness, becoming politically mature. And as they become – develop this political maturity, they’re able to see the recent trends in these political elections. They see that the whites are so evenly divided that every time they vote the race is so close they have to go back and count the votes all over again. And that…which means that any block, any minority that has a block of votes that stick together is in a strategic position. Either way you go, that’s who gets it. You’re – You’re in a position to determine who will go to the White House and who will stay in the dog house. You’re the one who has that power. You can keep Johnson in Washington D.C., or you can send him back to his Texas cotton patch. You’re the one who sent Kennedy to Washington. You’re the one who put the present Democratic Administration in Washington D.C. The whites were evenly divided. It was the fact that you threw 80 percent of your votes behind the Democrats that put the Democrats in the White House.
When you see this, you can see that the Negro vote is the key factor. And despite the fact that you are in a position to – to be the determining factor, what do you get out of it? The Democrats have been in Washington D.C. only because of the Negro vote. They’ve been down there four years, and they’re – all other legislation they wanted to bring up they brought it up and gotten it out of the way, and now they bring up you. And now, they bring up you. You put them first, and they put you last, ‘cause you’re a chump, a political chump.
In Washington D.C., in the House of Representatives, there are 257 who are Democrats; only 177 are Republican. In the Senate there are 67 Democrats; only 33 are Republicans. The Party that you backed controls two-thirds of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and still they can’t keep their promise to you, 'cause you’re a chump. Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that Party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you’re dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that Party, you’re not only a chump, but you’re a traitor to your race.
And what kind of alibi do they come up with? They try and pass the buck to the Dixiecrats. Now back during the days when you were blind, deaf, and dumb, ignorant, politically immature, naturally you went along with that. But today as your eyes come open, and you develop political maturity, you’re able to see and think for yourself, and you can see that a Dixiecrat is nothing but a Democrat in disguise.
You look at the structure of the government that controls this country; it’s controlled by 16 senatorial committees and 20 congressional committees. Of the 16 senatorial committees that run the government, 10 of them are in the hands of Southern segregationists. Of the 20 congressional committees that run the government, 12 of them in the – are in the hands of Southern segregationists. And they’re going to tell you and me that the South lost the war.
It is amazing that Malcolm X could see things 50 years ago that many STILL can’t see today.
Author: @dumbass-stilinski and @writing-obrien Rating: NSFW 18+ Pairing: Thomas/Reader Words: 4,429 AN: Another collab from me and Chloe! If you like it and you want to see more let us know, we have an idea for a potential sequel. (Also this was my first Thomas fic like what was I waiting for?!)
“A-Two! Step Away from B-Fourteen! Perimeters A-Two.” A voice shouted loudly over the intercom, all eyes snapping up to us, smirks on a few of their faces and some giving a judging glare. My head dropped with a sigh and I stepped away, hands raised in the air and I looked up at the camera with a pointed look.
“Yeah, Tommy, perimeters from the girlies.” A British voice teased and I rolled my eyes.
I'm pretty sure they're deliberately entering bad songs at this stage. Complete with obligatory Eurovision (completely unnecessary, song ruining) key change in the middle. They've given up on winning what with all the block countries voting for each other. Some shite ballad from Moldova is going to win anyway. Not that's it's not all just a big of fun, but it's lost its magic. Where's the glitter? The drag? The catchy europop dance tunes? They're trying to hard to Americanise it and it's shite
I heard that ANTIFA+FEMINISTS are blocking people in France to vote for LePen….um srsly WTF? Not to mention Macron is a privileged elitist WHITE MALE!!! and they SUPPORT HIM and reject the first possible female president!? lmao they cant even stick to their own rules…
Okay lol anon before me I know things I'm in the fandom, a shit ballad is something from the likes of Slovenia(which is sung by a convicted rapist, DO NOT VOTE FOR HIM)Moldova has sent the best song this year and it's called hey mamma, it's sung by sunstroke project(epic sax guy is back and better than ever, he literally said we'll be "shooketh" by they're performance)so don't go off shiting when you know fuck all, also block voting doesn't make anything win, Ukraine wom because of jamalas voice
On Tuesday, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan tweeted that the targeting of the LGBTQ community in the massacre “rejects who we are as a nation — open, tolerant, free." On Wednesday, he was one of the leaders in the House who blocked a vote for specific LGBT rights.
