ignore-hitler

I’m sure no one hates dolph for who he is - a sweet little boy who is interested in art and has no knowledge of his resemblance to hitler.

they hate dolph for what the writers intended him to be. the fact his character is littered with nazi symbolism is attributed to growing up in a german military camp - why not just say all german soldiers are nazis while you’re at it? not to mention, his focus episode was literally about him hunting down the only jewish kid at camp. 

let’s face it - dolph is nothing more than a young hitler joke. what characteristic does he have that is not shared by hitler? ignorance of Nazism aside, nothing. dolph is also one of the characters with no distinctive quality - flip flopping between being nice and adorable (a quality he also attributes to himself) and roasting david on top of a fire for no reason. 

(so he doesn’t step out of line until he does? what makes him act out? curiosity or fun seeking or disobedience? there’s nothing to quantify his character with and it frustrates me to no end)

there’s a fine line between satire/lampshading and just being plain awful. one of the reasons dolphs character is awful is just - its too soon. we are not even one generation removed from the Holocaust. I am aware there are other insensitive as hell media about this exact topic, but just understand why people can feel uncomfortable to the point they hate dolph.

tl;dr: people can hate whatever and whomever the hell they want. 

I don’t understand people who believe that if you ignore something, it’ll go away.
That’s completely wrong — if it’s ignored it gathers strength.
Europe ignored Hitler for 20 years.
As a result he slaughtered a quarter of the world!

I think the North will became the Russia to Dany's Napoleon and Hitler. Dany will succesfully take over fAegon's territories in Westeros which he would obtain through the help of the Martells, JonCon, Varys, Illyrio and the High Septon's forces. But she will not be able to obtain the North, it will be her demise.

While your theory is very interesting, I think it’s very, very, very unlikely. (And I’m pointedly ignoring the Hitler reference, even though I’m sure you meant it merely strategically. Hopefully.)

You’re making the same wrong (or let’s say questionable) assumption that most Westerosi nobles are making. You’re assuming that the main plot, the main challenge is political and who-will-rule-Westeros. You’re assuming that Daenerys’ path and destiny lies with a crown, the Iron Throne and being the Queen of Westeros.

I believe that Daenerys’ path lies in the fight against the Others, in the War for the Dawn. (You can read related meta with textual evidence here and here. I’d also check out Butterfly’s the War for the Dawn tag, if I were you.)

If Daenerys takes part in politics of Westeros at all, I think it will just be for a brief time, when she either makes a move against King’s Landing or challenges fAegon somehow. But with the Long Night approaching and the Others are invading, I doubt Daenerys (or anyone with a little bit of sense) will care about the game of thrones when an army of ice zombies threatens to slaughter them all.

“It is important that the individual books refer to the civil wars, but the series title reminds us constantly that the real issue lies in the North beyond the Wall.” — George R. R. Martin

GRRM himself said that the series title refers to the real issue: and it is not politics. It is ice vs. fire, dark vs. light, night vs. dawn, The Others vs. humanity. That is not to say there aren’t going to be any characters who will be (or have been) limited to political side of the conflicts. (I mean, look at Ned.) But Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, she who woke dragons from the stone as the ancient prophecies foretold, will have a greater path in front of her.

“Dumb librulz!  Unless Donald Trump killed 6 million innocent people, comparing him to Adolf Hitler is making light of the holocaust!”

Yeah, let’s just ignore: That Trump/Hitler used racism to gain popularity, that they both promised mass deportation, blamed Jews/Latinos for Germany’s/America’s problems, thought Jews/Muslims should wear special badges, promised to make Germany/America great again and have/had hideously embarrassing hair.

Yeah,let’s just give Trump a pass on being an obvious fascist racist psycho because he hasn’t had the chance to do anything bad yet.

Warning signs, you delusional dimwits. We can all pick them up. Loud and clear. Even if you sad, sad folks are utterly incapable of it

In 1938, Bob Kane was a young comic book artist trying to come up with a new superhero that could rival the extremely popular Superman. He got as far as sketching a bat-themed crime-fighter before clocking out for the day to drink heavily and ignore Hitler (the two most popular American pastimes of the 1930s).

Kane decided to enlist the help of a friend, a freelance writer named Bill Finger, to help develop the paper-thin idea he had. This translated to getting someone else to do the bulk of the work for him.

“Bob’s original vision included no story of any kind,” explains Marc Tyler Nobleman, author of Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator Of Batman. “He drew the first sketches, which Bill then completely overhauled, including pointing to ‘bat’ in the dictionary and suggesting Batman’s cowl resemble [an actual bat]." 

Finger also wrote Batman’s "murdered parents” origin story, as well as the first stories to feature Robin, Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, The Scarecrow, Commissioner Gordon, Gotham City, the batmobile, Batman’s secret identity, and the nickname “The Dark Knight.” Essentially, Bill Finger gave life to Batman in every sense of the word other than magically transporting himself into one of the comics and impregnating Martha Wayne. To reiterate, he did all of that work based on one Bob Kane illustration, which looked like the above.

5 Ways Batman’s TRUE Creator Got Screwed Out Of His Legacy

Harry Potter characters as people on either side of the discourse
  • Harry - completely avoids the discourse but gets really angry when people force him into it
  • Luna - “Why would cishets be LGBT? It doesn’t make any sense!”
  • Hagrid - “come get food my children” the neutral party
  • Malfoy - that one really uninformed dude who’s just too angry and bitter to let anyone correct him
  • Hermione - that person who goes from 3000 word essays with citations to one word replies and memes in the span of a week
  • Ron - starts out using memes and progressively gets more and more angry until he’s writing like 3000 word essays on why they’re not lgbt
  • Snape - 30 year old who literally compares teenagers to Hitler and ignores people saying they’re using eerily similar imagery to that of Nazis
  • Voldemort - uninucleus
YOU DO NOT GET TO ATTACK JASON’S RELIGION

Do I have your attention?

Good. Now let’s get started.  This is first and foremost addressed to all the problematic Clex.as 

A video was made and published on youtube where the actor playing Adolf Hitler is used to voice his anger and disgust at Lexa’s death meanwhile attacking Jason. 

Jason Rothenberg is a Jewish man I don’t care how you feel about him DO NOT bring his religion into this. There are Jewish fans of this show who do not deserve you in your goals to be “funny” to use their history to your liking.

You DO NOT get a freebie on praising a video filled with antii -semitism because it was “just supposed to be funny” 

You DO NOT get to take a real life event, arguably one of the darkest and most heinous events in history and use it to compare the fictional death of a female character.  

You DO NOT get to ignore that Hitler attacked and killed thousands of gay’s and lesbians so that you can be funny. 

Non-Jews On Tumblr

You cannot decide to talk about Jewish issues when it is convenient for you!

You cannot bring up the Israel-Palestinian conflict and ignore the Jews indigenous to this land, or the Jews expelled from several Middle Eastern countries who have just as much a right to live safely here as Palestinians do.

You cannot compare Trump or anyone else to Hitler and ignore antisemitic violence that continues in Europe and America.

It is incredibly insulting that the only time you EVER discuss Jews is when you’re comparing us to something else, or demonizing us.
