A moments peace

The world has gone insane. I feel like I can’t even remember the last time I went a whole day without getting completely upset or angry with someone. How about yourselves, do you feel like this?

Let’s talk/write about what it was like in the good old days, before all of this insanity started?

You all go first, because I can’t remember, haha

I remember walking to walk, or anywhere really and just listening to my iPod, and listening to it…Do you know what I mean? These days I will listen, but my mind is going a thousand miles a minute, about everything. The injustices, the the stupidity, the lack of common sense.

Accountability

Warning – Long post

I’ve had to unfollow (mainly on Twitter) lots of people. We don’t have a right to say IlhanMN comments were not anti-Semitic, hold those who said she is being anti-Semitic responsible. If we don’t hold ourselves to the same standards. Why are we so special? I don’t get why Clinton went? Also, not for one second do I believe this was a setup of any kind. I think this young woman just saw her fellow Muslims gets slaughtered, and in walks a white woman in power. Whose just said that the most positive Muslim woman in power was being anti-Semitic, and she got mad. If i lose followers because i dare hold Chelsea Clinton to a high standard then . “Allies” like that, who needs the alt-right? I don’t think anyone knows how bad it would have been for Ilhan Omar. Imagine that one woman, at least 10x worse, but over and over again and without question death threats.

Then we come to the issue of Twitter and YouTube, or any social media platform really. There are SO many “people” dead set against Twitter and YouTube and Instagram having to take any responsibility, or do better. On Instagram, they made the hashtag #blackjaguarwhitetigerfoundation a wildlife exploitation alert when you press on it. As they do. So people are warned before you even see the first pictures that they are a potential exploiter. As I’ve writing this, PETA have actually now written a piece on BJWT, and telling people the difference between actual sanctuaries and wildlife exploitation, like BJWT.

I know it seems harsh, but as Democrats, Liberals, Progressive, from any country. If we want change we have got to start holding ourselves, our words and actions at such a high standard. It may not seem fair right now, but when did anyone say life was far?

I was listening to a podcast with Russell Brand (what an interesting man) and his guest speaking was equally as interesting (I will have to get his name, and the name of the podcast episode) His guest speaker was saying that he is a lecturer in psychology, in the 5 years he’s been teaching, he has notice an increase in students bringing in notes from Doctors saying that they are excused from public speaking. Psychology students, too scared to speak to people? I can’t imagine that psychology you’d have a lot of public speaking, but there’d be some. This lecturer was commenting on how the younger generations are getting weaker. Now guaranteed there are always exceptions to the rules, Parkland students come to mind. I think he’s actually right.

Take the whole Clinton situation, people weren’t outraged because they even thought the young Muslim woman was wrong. They were “outraged” because of how she spoke to Clinton. Now we do have to hold ourselves to high standards, but who can blame someone for not speaking “correctly” in that situation? I would have thought that people would have understood, apparently not? If the way this woman spoke to Chelsea Clinton and NOT what Chelsea Clinton agreed with offended you, you have some serious objectivity problems. I immediately unfollowed someone who said and retweeted that you have mental issues if you think the way the young woman spoke to Clinton was alright…Excuse me?

You know what, I’m glad I unfollowed them. I’ve started to notice on my feeds that anybody who is easily offended by anything and the wrong things. Tend to be “louder” on platforms on places like Twitter, Facebook, etc. They tend to be the people that drown out the fact that Chelsea Clinton agreed with what the alt-right were saying.

Stop thinking you have to be “polite” to have a high standard. Think of standards, as morals. If you have good morals, you have a good standard.

…Or just ignore my rantings,lol…I’m very fed up with the world today,lol

Tolkien Reading Day

Why 25 March?

The 25th of March is the date of the downfall of the Lord of the Rings (Sauron) and the fall of Barad-dûr. It has been organised by the Tolkien Society since 2003 to encourage fans to celebrate and promote the life and works of J.R.R. Tolkien by reading favourite passages

darkness must pass

Regarding a lot of my posts lately, I have been feeling like I want to add more, but the quote sums it up perfectly.

 

So it’s been kind of a bad day

A few years ago Australia voted for #lovewins. Where Australia voted to legalise lgbtq marriage. Love Wins is what people used when it was voted Yes…Australia and Love wins that day.

Over night while you’ve all been sleeping, NSW voted, for their state elections. Now we are having a federal election in May, where we vote for a new prime minister. However, over night NSW decided to stick with it’s conservative. It’s upset a lot of people because they just assume (like I’m sure a lot of you all do) NSW (aka Sydney) is overly progressive…NSW is NOT a progressive state and I realised this when we had the #lovewins vote (which is why I brought it up).

NSW, although did vote “Yes” They also only JUST voted Yes in NSW. NSW had the lowest voters for Yes out of the whole country. NSW have the biggest parades, the biggest parties, they have the Mardi Gras but that means nothing when your also the state with the most rich, “scared” and white people in the country.

The day after the Christchurch/New Zealand mass shootings. For some unknown reason, the Sydney television AND radio shows had members from One Nation on. For those who don’t know, One Nation is probably our racist “party”. One member decided to put in a policy to say “It’s okay to be white”. The leader of One Nation came dressed in a Burqa, and was subsequently laughed at. You might have heard of #eggboy? A young kid egged a One Nation senator, because the senator basically said that the Muslim people had it coming. Which is why eggboy is such a hero in Australia. Now one of them has gained a seat.

I think it’s very safe to say now that NSW is not a progressive state. You’d think it would be though? Clearly not ALL NSW though,lol

Twitter down…No, I just wish it was

Don’t Panic…Twitter isn’t actually down.

What a mess Twitter is today!

Chelsea Clinton apparently wrote something that was along the lines of agreeing that Ilhan Omar said something anti-Semitic…Turns up at Muslim memorial…and is shocked that people are mad at her? Why on earth did she go?…Yet, people are all condemning the girl as vile, because you don’t yell at someone at a memorial? I would hope that if I did die in the next few years that my family blast my ex-friends if they dared to show up.

I spend the whole day telling the alt-right to take responsibility for their words, just for the left to turn around and say “Oh it’s okay when Chelsea Clinton says it”…NO IT FREAKING WELL ISN’T!

Then people are still going around calling Muslim terrorists…You know the type, fake name, fake profile…Talk a lot of shit.

Milo Yain…whatever…I don’t care enough…Is FINALLY banned after his horror comments about the New Zealand speech. He was already banned once. Then after the Australian right started to whine and complain, he was let back in.

I’m just going to say this:

Hitler didn’t kill the Jews himself, Charles Manson didn’t kill anyone and cult leaders rarely actually kill their members themselves. WORDS HAVE IMPACT…Even though the shooter mentioned Candace O by name…She says “Oh it was clearly tongue in cheek” You remember Candace Owen right? She’s the one who said IN LONDON…That Hitlers problem was he wanted to expand, he was too ambitious…Yeah, that was Hitlers problem.

Think I’m just gonna stay off of Twitter and most social media profiles for a while. I am mentally exhausted.

I like WordPress though and the bloggers on here ❤

New Zealand <3

I’m at work and I had an entirely different Blog setup, so hopefully I get to finish what I write.

I cannot believe what’s happening in New Zealand right now, Christchurch. Trying not to cry at work, is incredibly hard. I cannot believe it, but at the same time I can. You hear all the time now how alt-right violence is on the rise.

For this not to be called a terrorist attack, is disgusting, not surprising. That’s what so sad. They must have been planning this attack for months, and I am willingly to be no one was watching them. 3 men and one woman have been taken into custody at this time.

This is not a time for left vs right, this is a time for “This is just flat out wrong”.

Too find out as well that one of them at least, live streamed this…They are going to Hell.

I hold Facebook accountable, I hold every single person who have attacked Muslim people accountable. I hold Twitter accountable for consistently giving into to racists. I hold people like Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannoplus, Candace Owen. I hold the PM of Australia and the immigration minister accountable.

IT’S TIME TO START MAKING RACISTS ACCOUNTABLE.
