“The workers must be armed and organized. Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be
surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by
force if necessary.” — Karl Marx
This should be a very pressing issue for the far-left. We need to start pulling a lot more Black Panther shit, waltzing around the capitol building locked and loaded. As a tendency and a movement, we need to flat-out steal the “gun culture” from reactionaries.
MTV’s Elect This’s Ask Box is open for Tumblr and Elect This’ IssueTime on gun violence prevention. Leading activists for gun safety will be answering your questions on gun rights and gun control, how to be an activist in your own community for gun safety regardless of age or experience, and so much more.

“Excellent,” said Cinder, standing up and brushing off her hands. “I was beginning to worry we wouldn’t have a pilot for when it’s time to take Kai back to earth.Now I just have to worry about not having a competent one.” “Oh, Cinder, I’ve missed seeing your face when you make sarcastic comments in an attempt to hide your true feelings about me.” “Please.” Rolling her eyes, Cinder started organizing the guns against the wall. “See that eye roll? It translates to ‘How am I possibly keeping my hands off you, Captain?” “Yeah, keeping them from strangling you.” Kai folded his arms, grinning. “How come no one told me I had such steep competition?” Cinder glared. “Don’t encourage him.”
First, lets’s start with the NRA’s most popular spokesman. His name is Colion Noir.
He’s not white.
Another popular spokeswoman is Gaby Franco. She emigrated to the U.S. from Venezuela.
Oh by the way, the NRA is the largest gun rights organization in the United States. So do you mean to tell me that the largest gun rights organization in the United States (a predominately white country) would have non-whites as popular commentators? Why isn’t their most popular spokesman white? Moreover, why does Colion Noir have his own NRA web show dedicated to the review and critique of firearms for self-defense? Did I mention he’s not white?
Furthermore, here are some white devils supporting the rights of the non-white citizenry to bear arms, and peacefully assemble:
Unsuccessful race baiting is unsuccessful.
By the way, @half-bloodbastard, I’d like to thank you for letting me know that you’re a racist. You see, from time to time one must take out the trash. Oh by the way, assuming someone is a racist merely because of their race makes the accuser a racist. You hid your character flaw for a time, but the stench found it’s way to the surface, didn’t it? Good riddance, you silly bitch.
Warnings: mentions of [his] death and sadness and nightmares
a/n: sorry this took so long and is so short rip but i do hope you enjoy!!
There had always been something about Jason that just kind of spoke to you. A certain quietness, a loneliness, a perpetual softness hidden behind a rough exterior hardened from an innocence that had been ripped away too early on in life.
That was the thing that you felt that made you love him so intensely in the beginning: the sorrow, the sadness, the pain. He was there. He had been there for so long, existing with this burdensome sadness that was buried deep within his very soul, and you just knew that there was nothing that you could do, nor say, that could ever really take it away forever.
what are some of your favorite Root x Shaw headcanons with them being in the subway?
They both have placed picked out to sit that are their places and they get grumpy if someone sits in their spots. Their spots are strategically picked out to be near each other, but not too close.
Everyone had differing opinions about how to organize the guns in the lockers so Root and Shaw came up with a compromise. Everyone gets their own column of lockers to organize. Root and Shaw knocked out a few walls between their lockers to store longer guns.
Shaw secretly watches Root code, hoping to learn something. Root pretends she doesn’t notice, but she slows down her typing sometimes and makes comments that she doesn’t really need.
Shaw cleans Root’s guns for her but neither one says anything about it.
No one talks about that time that they shared the twin bed behind the partition and all the pictures that John took of it mysteriously disappeared from his phone.
