boston party

  • British taxation on America without sufficient representation: *results in Boston Tea Party, revolution, etc.*
  • White reactionary: These acts of property damage and militant resistance are justified and good =) because Britain was clearly tyrannical =) liberty needs to be fought for sweaty =)
  • Eight people control more wealth than half the world's people, climate change threatens to bring catastrophic damage to the planet, and a proto-fascist sexual predator was just made most powerful man in the world: *results in some shattered windows and limo bonfires, calls for revolution, etc.*
  • White reactionary: Um =\ violence is never the answer =/ protest is good and all =\ but this is taking it too far =/ can't you see you're just hurting any credibility you had =\ protests shouldn't interrupt my day =(

Its like, people are theoretically fine with protests, (Lord knows we go on and on about the fucking Boston Tea Party enough, and pay at least some lip service to MLK) until they think that it might actually negatively impact them in some way.

Like.

That’s the point.

Protests aren’t there to be convenient and comforting. 

If you aren’t part of the protest, it’s supposed to make you uncomfortable. It’s supposed to make you upset. It’s supposed to make you notice shit that you otherwise ignore.

When bands tour literally everywhere but near you

Pop punk problem #48

When your mom tells you that you eat too much pizza:

“Shut up mom you don’t know me!”

*Grabs pizza box and phone, climbs onto roof, listens to Neck Deep and wonders why you’re still stuck in this damn town*

Finding the perfect person for you, they have all the right looks and a great personality but they hate your favorite bands
