crimes against humanity

anonymous asked:

I'm sorry to bug you, but you could go into more detail about the whole Gal Gadot thing? I'm not the most informed person when it comes to current events in the Middle East.

She’s a big supporter of the IDF (Israeli Defense Force).
IDF is responsible for numerous war crimes as well as crimes against humanity. Her vocal support came around the time Israel was launching aerial attacks on Palestine.

I don’t really want to get into the whole thing on here but Israeli settlement was a result of British imperialism in the 1900s, and the enforcement of the balfour declaration which is the reason behind the imperialist roots in the region as well as the Zionist movement itself.

If you really want to understand the major underlying issue of the middle east, check out Oriental-ism by Edward Said and read Avi Shlaim’s The Iron Wall to get a really good grasp on Israeli-and Palestinian conflict and the Zionist movement. You’ll start to understand why people are upset at her support of the IDF and Israel itself

Pray for the people of Syria

Something absolutely horrendous happened in Syria there was a chemical attack
If you are strong enough try to watch the video is absolutely fuck up but I think is that necessary people see the horrible reality of this crimes against humanity
I’ve never seen something like that I’m in tears I wish I could switch places with any of the victims, please keep them in your prayers

For as long as I can remember myself, it has rained in Armenia for April 24th. This year isn’t an exception. 

Rest in Peace 1.5 million innocent men, women, kids, elders, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, friends, lovers. You did not deserve to die in anguish, and for your sacrifice you will be forever remembered. 

It’s the 102th anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

Chemical attacks in Syria cannot be looked over, or forgotten. Forgetting this is one of the most dishonourable things you could ever do in this life. People always assert that had they been alive in the 40s that they would not have been silent or complacent or indifferent to the Holocaust. Nowadays another crime against humanity is happening and it is not the time to be indifferent. Not acknowledging the victims is acting like they never existed in the first place. This is a crime against humanity and should be widely acknowledged as one. Not paying attention is the same as covering up the deaths because you’re letting people get away with crimes against humanity. Eventually humanity has to acknowledge and hold people accountable because it’s the right thing to do. Not paying attention or not learning/speaking about it solves nothing. Do the right thing and be on the right side of history. I cannot stress that enough. Don’t forget them.

After 3000 years of caste apartheid, oppression, subjugation, servitude, subhuman treatment, genocide, colonization, invasion, white washing, gentrification, rapes, acid attacks, stoning, slavery and every other horrible crime against humanity – do you think it’s right to teach these people color blindness? Do you think it’s right to teach their children forgiveness over justice? Do you think its right to parade black people that look like them but who are in relationships with white people in front of them like they are success stories? After three thousand years of being disenfranchised and almost being genocided and erased out of history and having received no justice, would you tell these black people – we’re all humans?

Stop Bombing Yemen!

For my younger followers, and those who have not had the chance to be as socially educated and may be on the fence about communism, an ideology that never should have left Karl Marx’s basement (where he wrote it while ignoring his starving children)


The perfect illustration of capitalism vs communism is Korea. 


In South Korea, you have this thing called K-pop

It’s cute bubbly pop music made by cute highschool girls and young women. 

Now in North Korea, you have these things called “Death Camps.”

It’s where girls just like this, toddlers​, elderly and inform, and political dissidents (real or percieves) are worked to death, starved, women subject to rape (usually followed by then watching product of said rape murdered in front of her.), entire families imprisoned in these circumstances for generations, all of them subject to medical experimentation and just any crime against humanity imaginable (the history of communism is parrallel to that of all major large scale human rights abuses for the past hundred years.

why do you hate JK Rowling? Hope this doesn't come off as rude, I'm just confused

No problem. Not a lot of people know how she has treated Scotland. In 2014 she spent £1 million keeping the country I live in tied to the proto-Fascist government in Westminster. She called those who opposed this move “death eaters” and threatened to remove all her charity money from Scotland if we didn’t vote the way she wanted.  

We’re still controlled by a government that has been investigated for crimes against humanity for their treatment of the disabled because of JK Rowling. We’re still tied to a government that wants to make the UK healthcare system MORE like the US system that is killing so many Americans. We can’t accept disabled child refugees because of JK Rowling. We still have another country’s massive (and occasionally malfunctioning) nuclear weapons being stored just outside our largest city because of JK Rowling. And to top it all off, we’re being dragged out of the EU against our will because of JK fucking Rowling.

She doesn’t give to charity to help people, but to wield power over them. I have no respect for her and I never will.

You know how there are stories all over the media now about how Scotland hated Donald Trump for years before the rest of the world joined in? Someday the rest of the world will catch up with us on JK Rowling too.

Remember the Armenian Genocide

Today marks the 102nd anniversary of The Armenian Genocide, taking place from 1915 through 1917. During that time the Ottoman Empire systematically massacred about 1.5 million Armenian folk, out of the 2 million that were living there. This was a premeditated campaign to exterminate an entire people. Along with being brutally murdered, the deaths also took form in deportation of Armenian families and death marches. Many of their bodies were found in mass graves years later. The actions committed in these two years have been described as a “crime against humanity” and as “the first genocide of the 20th century” by places such as Britain, France, and Russia. However, our genocide is currently being denied and dismissed in many places all over the world, including the United States. We will not forget. We will always remember. We are strong and will never be silenced.

Here is my first question, many people are comparing Lena to the evolution of Morgana. What are the similarities and differences between the two of them characteristically and plot wise. 😍

Ah, yes. Pull up a chair kids because this is a damn good question.

I think we can all pretty much agree that making Lena evil and killing her off would be some of the most lazy and cliche examples of writing ever to be dragged across our screens. We’ve been suffering enough through S2 of Supergirl and this plot twist (not actually a plot twist) would not only most likely be the last straw for us all, but it would be ridiculous.

I know some people like to hate on Lena for different reasons such as not liking SuperCorp or just assuming that she will be just another evil Luthor. I have some words for those that talk crap about my precious cupcake but let’s keep this friendly shall we? Sure, there are some parallels between Lex and Clark vs. Lena and Kara. You can have those. But they aren’t the only parallels that exist. The real plot twist is already in progress friends. The real plot twist is Lena actually being *gay gasp* GOOD! Whaaaaat? Who saw that coming!?

Some that are familiar with Katie’s work pre-Lena like to compare Lena to Morgana. Which is awesome might I add. However, some of these comparisons are cheaply used to explain exactly why Lena will be evil. Nope. The Katie McGrath Character Analyst™ is here to tell you that is weak.

So lets start this out by talking about Morgana. Most of you are familiar, I’m sure but for those that are not or need some refreshing, let’s do a quick fact list/breakdown.

The Lady Morgana Pendragon

  • Originally considered to be Camelot’s Favorite Daughter

  • Raised by Uther Pendragon’s best friend, Gorlois
  • Adopted by Uther following Gorlois’ death
  • Turns out to be Uther’s biological daughter and older half-sister of Arthur Pendragon
  • Has a legitimate claim to the throne
  • Younger half-sister of Morgause
  • Former friend and eventual rival of Merlin
  • Eventual enemy of Camelot
  • Powerful magic wielder rivaled only by Merlin/Emrys
  • The Last High Priestess of the Triple Goddess

Okay, caught up? Cool. Morgana’s story is actually quite tragic (Of course it is! It’s Katie! What do you think this is?) But it is quite powerful as well. It has always been foretold that it was in Morgana’s destiny is to become the evil, all-powerful witch that the grew to be. But she was not always like that, and she didn’t have to be! Morgana started out as a sweet, innocent, yet still fiery young woman that had a huge heart and the love and respect of everyone. She could stand up for herself and had the wits to challenge everyone around her. At that point, the biggest issues in her life were her negative feelings toward Uther’s views of magic and those that had it, and the possibility that she may have magic herself. Let us consider the very important fact that Morgana suffered from several external factors that eventually led to her turn.

Uther Pendragon

Morgana always made it clear that she disliked Uther’s harsh methods when it regarded the treatment of sorcerers in and around Camelot. She didn’t think it was right or fair that an innocent person should be executed simply because of what they are. She was right! There were good people in the world that had magic and did not deserve persecution. However, Uther would hear none of her arguments and often acted aggressively toward Morgana when she spoke against him. At times, Uther went as far as laying hands on Morgana and even locked her in a cell until she apologized for calling him a tyrant and a madman – for speaking the truth. Morgana also learns the truth of how Gorlois (the man she believed to be her father died). He was sent to battle by Uther whom failed to send him the reinforcements he needed. This is something that was very difficult for her to handle. It eventually came to Morgana’s attention that she had been lied to her entire life. She discovered that she was actually Uther’s biological daughter from a time that he was involved with Vivienne (mother of Morgause) and that she was actually the rightful heir to the throne. After hearing the way Uther claimed to feel about her, she tried to give him a chance to come clean. Instead Uther decided to keep his secret saying the people do not need to know, thus denying Morgana and her birthright. After years of his crap, Morgana had enough of him. She hated him. She wanted him dead. Needed him dead. So she turned to our next evil inducing factor, Morgause.

Morgause

Ah Morgause and Morgana. Umm, MorMor? Was that a thing? People shipped them. Shippers, acknowledge and answer me! Was that name a thing?? Wait no, Morcest! That’s what it was. Okay. Got it. Thanks guys. This troubles me.

Anywho, Morgause obviously played a major role in Morgana’s turn. I’ll skip ahead really quick and say that Morgause was literally the only person that had enough opportunity, that actually tried to help Morgana explore her power. She helped Morgana embrace the magic that she was originally so afraid of. When meeting with Morgause one night, she explained that she hated the man the Uther had become and even had a chance to kill him but decided to save him instead. She regretted that decision. Morgause saw this and the trust Morgana has invested in her as an opportunity to use Morgana’s body as a vessel that hosted an enchantment that proved to be dangerous to Camelot. Morgana was of course, unaware of this and was not intentionally hurting anyone. This led to the final straw and evil inducing factor, Merlin.

Merlin (and Gaius and Kilgharrah)

I will keep this short because again, Merlin was a man that Morgana originally placed great faith and trust in. They went through a lot together and Morgana trusted him to keep her secret of having magic. Where did our “hero” go wrong? He lied to her. Kept the secret of having magic away from her despite knowing how he could help her. He decided to keep it a secret because the old man and the crazy locked up dragon told him so. Bad choice Merlin. Upon discovering Morgana’s alleged involvement in Camelot’s toil, he just up and poisoned her. That’s it. Tricked her. Poisoned her. Sat there and cried while he murdered the woman that was supposed to be his friend. Rude. Morgause was the one that came to her rescue. Case in point: If Merlin had been honest with Morgana from the beginning, she most likely would not have turned to Morgause. She would not have felt so alone. She would not have been taken away by Morgause and shaped into the evil, angry, and vindictive sorceress that she became. Merlin even acknowledged this point later.

The result: Evil!Morgana

Good job team. Sloooow clap. Look what you did. Now she’s pissed.

So how does this all compare to our lil cupcake Lena Luthor?? Let’s see.

Firstly, this is tough because we had 5 seasons of our beautiful Morgana and only have ohhh about an hour or less of Lena (crime against humanity). Let me see what I can do, Chance.

Israel Tortures Palestinian Children

Are you aware of the Congolese atrocities committed on behalf of King Leopold II of Belgium? It is believed that up to 10 million people were killed and mutilated (half of the population) whilst covering it up. He (King Leopold) and his people were monsters…they had childrens’ hands hacked off.

In general, Colonialism (such a euphemism) fucked up and exploited Africa, as well as a number of countries in Asia, Oceania and the Americas. A significant portion of the wealth of a lot of first-world countries today was built on the stripped resources and immense suffering of the people they conquered. 

Almost everyone knows about the Holocaust and Nazi Germany, countless films and books have been written on it but what about this King Leopold asswipe? 

It is important to know about this!! This guy is one of the evilest, horrendous villains in world history. There are still statues of him in Belgium. (If any of you go to Belgian and see the statues, please spit on them or give them the finger at least)
