I’ll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be with you all…

Look everyone, a lovely alt-right asshole decided to come into my messages to bitch at me instead of responding in public to the post in question.

Below is screen readable text for those who can’t read the images.

Liberals are literally beating up Trump supporters in the streets and in schools, but we are the aggressors. Your rioting, your flipping cars, your burning flags, assaulting officers. I mean children are getting hurt in schools. One girl got viciously beat, another 11 year old boy put in crutches. Your ideology of calling us racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, bigoted, violent, nazi’s. You shut down our free speech, stuck your noses up on us, and then say we are the aggressors. Go fuck yourself and fuck your regressive movement. We want change for the better, and it’s not some scheme to make racism and bigotry okay. Get it through your skull that your group are the ones being violent, you are the bigots insult driven, you are the one’s that shut down any political discourse. Get it through your thick skull

I love how every time there’s a protest from a minority it’s a “riot” but middle class white dudes flipping cars and setting cities on fire after major sports wins are just “celebrations.” Fuck you.

I’d like sources that aren’t your alt-right trash that prove that kids are beating up kids for being Trump supporters. Because what I’m seeing is Trump supporters attacking people for their religions, spreading the same racist tripe we’ve had to listen to for over a year. A friend of a friend of mine had her car fucking graffitied and then set on fucking fire. Fuck you.

Freedom of speech doesn’t mean we have to listen or even let you continue. Your freedom of speech means the government can’t stop you can speaking. We are free to ignore you or shut you down as we see fit.

We’re tired of your lies.

We’re tired of your hate.

Your “change” is only “positive” change for middle and upper class white people who aren’t trans or a religious minority.

On top of that: We’ve tried compromising for literally decades. It’s the Republicans who have made it impossible. And they’ve slowly burned the country in the process. Voting for trump gives them more power to do the same.

Don’t tell me you want change when you just voted for the literal status quo with a leader without morals. Good job, shit face.

Burning the flag of your country is almost always seen as a rejection of your association with that country.

But when I see someone burning their flag, I don’t see rejection. A flag is nothing more than a representation of the people under it, and a burning flag is a representation of the suffering of those people. We let the flags burn as a mimicry of how our countries do nothing to stop our oppression. And slowly but surely, nothing is left of the flag, as nothing will be left of us.

Burning a flag is not simply a rejection of a country, it’s a revelation of what it’s doing to us.

  • Canadians: Actually the last time we won was 2009 and we have the most titles! It's our national sport so-
  • Americans: WOAH! WOAH! WOAH! THAT IS SO FUCKING DEGRADING TO ME! I LIKE HOCKEY JUST AS MUCH AS YOU! ALL OF YOU ARE SO FUCKING IGNORANT! YOU'RE A TERRIBLE COUNTRY AND I'M GOING TO BURN YOUR FLAG!

anon asked: I’m not saying we should set racists on fire.
But racists are straight up daring us to set them on fire.


Well, also, it’s like, chill with your fake victim complex, racists, no one actually goes around burning your racist flags, we just rightly call you racist for having one.

Dear united-statians friends:

Don’t burn your flags. WASH THE FLAGS.

The act of washing a flag symbolically takes away the glory and honor it has gained from previous battles; therefore, washing a flag means you’re washing away your nation’s honor and worth.

Burning a flag means the flag is already too old and needs to be replaced, so you’d be actually reinforcing its honor.

(If being latin american has taught me anything it is that washing a flag is one of the biggest insults you could ever do to your government)

As a black British I just wanted to say yeah I agree with you racism occurs in England on several levels and the killing of Duggan is one of them.. But do not be mistaken America is literally 70000000000000 light years behind any of the other western powers in terms of police brutality & higher powers using race as a factor. America has a serious problem!

… uh huh… So… Done alot of living in the U.S., have you? Have lots of personal, first-hand experience with American antiblackness, I take it? I mean, you wouldn’t just be sitting down in front of the tv at 6 o’ clock everyday, listening to Brits rant about the U.S. instead of themselves, and then mistakenly thinking that means the UK has done less dirt, huh? I’m hoping you’re not that naive. Because that amount of naivete just goes to show that the UK still has such a long way to go to catch up to even HAVING the discussions that the U.S. is trying to have. We are fighting tooth and nail for our right to live in peace and have learned how to discuss and recognize outright as well as subtle institutionalized racism, racism that unless you are aware of it, will slip right past your own eyes and destroy the livelihoods of your community and your children through time and the law.

Sad thing that so many UK black Brits are not even aware or versed enough in the subject to begin outwardly showing disdain for as well as dismantling the monster that is institutionalized and historical antiblackness in the UK. Imagine the blows, both literal and figurative, you’d receive if black Brits burned the union jack in righteous protest of British antiblackness. Imagine all the racist slurs you’d be called for admitting out loud as a group, all the time, that white people in the UK are inherently racist. Now consider how much is seething and bubbling below the surface for you to be conscious that burning your own flag would bring about such a racist reaction and to purposely not do it because of you knowing what will happen. Sit with that and realize why you all hesitate to burn your OWN flag. It’s because you’re afraid to discover that, given the proper provocation, white people where you live would be more than willing to turn your town into a Ferguson, burn it down, and beat your black ass too. Matter of fact…that’s a challenge to British black folk. Burn the union jack in protest of antiblackness and in direct alliance with the feelings and motives of those in Ferguson, and see what happens to you specifically because you are black and upset. Face the truth of your own dire predicament. I dare you to show white Brits their own ugly reflection on a constant and regular basis like we have done. Then let’s talk about who is 70000000% worse than whom.

Repeat After Me:

• The confederate flag does not signify southern pride
• The confederate flag signifies a nation that wanted to tear a country in two over owning people
• It is literally one of the most racist symbols in America
• Calling you problematic for having confederate paraphernalia is not mean/a violation of your rights/sensitive
• You’re gross
• Burn your flags and get away from me

The fucking comedy of white ass English folks burning American flag. Your country literally created the monster that is this country. You established white supremacy and now you wanna use Mike Brown for your bullshit.
