Has anyone else noticed that the Right keep saying things that the Liberals say things that, Liberals are not saying. The only “people” saying it are the Right?
People like Candace Owen say that Liberals keep calling George Floyd a “Hero”. No Liberal has ever called Floyd a hero. We say he’s innocent, not a hero though. Is CO saying that only heroes’ get murdered?
According to the Right we keep saying that you can’t be proud of who you are. We have never said this either. We say you can be totally proud of who are…but why are you proud to be white specifically? I’m white, I’m proud of who I am. Nothing to do with the colour of my skin though. Yes, black people can have Black Pride. No, we cannot have “white pride” because there’s nothing white, to be proud of. What do we have to be proud of? The KKK, Nazi’s, slavery, oppression. How many white men have you seen say we should be happy that they gave women the right to vote. Who was stopping women to vote in the first place?lol. And they STILL want to take our body choices away from us, too this day. Invading countries, nearly wiping out the entire indigenous population. just to tell people of colour, that they’re not allowed in “our” country. You know the country we invaded, and nearly wiped out the indigenous populations. How dare countries we invade think they have any rights to live in “ours”.
We have a “new age guru” chef called Pete Evans. I don’t know how many readers on here are aware of him. He’s a chef, but he’s also a tv host on numerous “cook off” type tv shows in Australia. Also one of my ex-friends was really obsessed with him. Even though she hates children, like the others did. She would tell people like me, who were probably going to have children one day. That I should give my newborn bone throth soup, because he said so. For those who don’t know, the quantities that he suggested, are actually dangerous for newborns.
He has also been fired recently from a lot of his television shows, as a result of selling a $15,000 coronavirus “crystal health” machine. He is also anti-vaccine. Just your average new day “healthy” manic. Never liked him…
But I also have never trusted him. For one very big reason.
The mister (and his wife) and the mrs anti-vaccine, only crystal healing…Get botox. Amazingly enough, I have seen a LOT who do.
I follow a really beautiful person on Instagram…Chronically Courtney. Now Courtney is vaccine injured…BUT…Please read further before heading to her account and blasting. She still tells people to get vaccines, just do research before you get them. Which is just common sense, really?. Nothing is 100% guaranteed. What I REALLY love about her, specifically though, is that even though there are times her body flares up, and she gets unexpectedly upset. SHE KEEPS GOING. She has not let it “end” her life.
Which brings me too my blog topic today. One of the annoying things about her account, not her. Is that every time she makes a post about vaccine injury. Even when she SAY HERSELF, get the vaccines, do research. I guarantee you that anti-vaxxers jump on with the whole “Thank you Courtney, we should get rid of all vaccines…They have DESTROYED so many lives”.
I feel insulted for her sometimes, Courtney doesn’t really strike me as the type who thinks her life is destroyed. Her injury, has inspired her to do more. Heck, I’m nearly double her age…nearly…and she’s doing a lot more than I ever have.
About a year after my huge anxiety attack, people kept telling me to take this product called “Seremind”. It’s a lavender tablet. So I did…I took it for the whole month and I hardly got any sleep. So I stopped taking it and people weren’t…exactly annoyed, but…annoyed,lol…That I wouldn’t keep taking it. About another 6 months after that I was drinking my usual cup of chamomile tea before bed. Then it hit me, what about chamomile! I always drink it before bed and it helps, I always drink it if I’m feeling anxious and it helps.
So I started taking that about a year ago, still taking it.
As you can see though, even thought the majority of people take Seremind, it just didn’t work for myself. But Chamomile “Tablets” and tea do.
It’s just the way life is.
Which is one of the other things that annoys me about those anti-vaxxers. All of them go on about how they’re better than say someone like me. Who they clearly have no idea about. Because I “worship” western medication. Which isn’t true. So many of them call themselves “Pagans” or “Wicca”s, not realising that that is a belief system. I, myself, to use both Western and Eastern medication. I do do research before I start to take something.
There was this one “Wicca” who came onto one of Courtney’s post. Going onto complete strangers posts and making uninformed comments about them. I saw that she has apparently been taking something natural since the middle of last year to make her less judgemental…I couldn’t stop laughing,so I wrote “Well this clearly isn’t working”. Well that was a mistake,lol. She told me I ruined Courtney’s message. I was called hateful, and she’d appreciate it if I could stop making armchair assessments on her, since I didn’t know her. So I did the laughing emoticon again and reminded her that she chose to write armchair judgemental comments on people she doesn’t know. I just thought it was funny that someone who claims to be better than others because she’s all “natural” is not only taking something to make her less judgemental, but it clearly isn’t working for her,lol. But these others were medicine worshippers, because they think you should research before you take anything?
Update: (this is happening a lot lately,lol). I have now actually unfollowed Courtney,lol. While her message is generally thoughtful and kind. Like with a lot of people lately, she seems to have gone one way or another. ie vaccines are evil. I still stand by though, if you are vaccine injured. It does NOT mean the end of your life (like a lot of these anti-vaxxers say it is). You just have to find a different way to live it.
Apart from the Civil Rights Act, what else has fundamentally changed?
John Lennon was assassinated exactly 40 years ago, this year…what changed?
After these good people died, it’s like everything they stood for died with them. (John Lennon was a bit of a bastard, but he wanted good things).
“Riot is the language of the unheard” The day he was killed…African Americans and generally POC become unheard…again. So when I see someone like George Floyd’s brother, saying that protesters are doing “nothing”. It’s pretty insulting. I feel for him. It’s just really insulting to say they people are doing nothing. They’re listening now, aren’t they.
They’re also, no offence, not protesting JUST for George Floyd either.
I really don’t understand “Peace on the left. Justice on the right?” either. The whole reason for the protest, is because those on the Right, only deliver selective “justice”.
I feel him and get why Terrence Floyd would think about it’s all about George. The protests are not JUST about George Floyd. They are for every single POC murdered, by those supposed to protect them. Since Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated, what has changed?
Apart from the #CivilRightActs, what has fundamentally changed? We continue to use Martin Luther King Jr quotes as an example. Because until Colin Kapernick took that knee, there wasn’t really much protection or police officers being held accountable. If at all. Even THEN…They still said that Kapernick should be locked up. They gloated that they would bring Nike down…Which didn’t work.
Okay, maybe Beyonce brought it back to attention with her songs. THAT didn’t work either though. They just called her emotional and angry. Because they did not GET IT.
I am not a POC, but even I got that song! But then I guess I just “get it”.
For those who are not familiar with Australian politics. Here in Australian, the Liberals are the Right Conservative, and Labor are the “Lefties” Liberals. Like a lot of countries, at the moment, Australia is run by the Liberals…So the Conservative Christians. Literally…Our Prime Minister is a member of Hillsong. Since he’s been PM, there has been nothing but scandal, scandal…and you guessed it…
Robodebt, Ruby Princess, Angusgate, ScottyfromMarekting, Clive Palmer, Sportsrort, Peter Dutton.
Why am I bringing this up?
Well, I was having a conversation with someone who said “who cares about the supposed sportrort. All that was, was politicians buying seats. All Politicians do it. You lefties are just so biased. Have you seen Channel 10 or the ABC? The MSM is so biased.”
So I asked them “Have you WATCHED those channels lately?”lol
Anyway, as I pointed out…The sports rort isn’t just the ONLY problem with the current Government. It’s not just one thing, it’s the continual corruption. Not one person in Government taking responsibility for their part of it. Apparently it’s lefties, who think that votes should be earned and not paid for.
The irony of this conversation was that it was in reply to a ABC reporter, you know the completely lefties biases. Commenting on a Labour minister who was sacked. He did something inappropriate. Currently Labor, are not in power. This “reporter” also said how everyone else ie “lefties” was trying to play down why this guy was being sacked, and that we were trying to deflect with the current Government’s corruptions.
One, people from the Labor party were saying it was about time this guy was sacked. No one was playing it down. Two, the only comparison we “lefties” were making was how at least Labor SACK their inappropriate members. Whereas the Liberals, not only don’t sack anyone and take no responsibility. They then allow that same person to take on even MORE projects. Literally nothing happens. The guy who was in charge of Robodebt, as an example, where Australians committed suicide. Is now our person in charge of Australia’s Covid 19 app. So he wasn’t fired, I doubt he was even reprimanded. Is now in charge of another plot to have Australian’s information.
(Shorten is who we SHOULD have had instead of Morrison).
It was just strange to me that in one paragraph, not only did this person admit that the Liberals only get votes by buying them. But that it’s the lefties who are corrupt and bias. By admitting that lefties think votes have to be earned, not bought. On a post by a Liberal supporting ABC reporter. But the ABC are bias.
I know that Obama is a good guy, because despite the Right REALLY not like him. Despite “people” like McConnell doing everything they could to try and stop Obama. Which President again had to run into a bunker, because the People of the United States got fed up with them? Everything they said about Obama hasn’t panned out. While everything said about Trump, turns out to be true.
Not anyone of you, you are all truly lovely people…
The bigotry, the TERFS, the hate, the vile, the lying…It just needs to stop, like yesterday. No more.
What is it with people who want to go out of their way to hurt people, they don’t know. Have nothing to do with. And are obsessed with complete strangers bodies. I got into a conversation last night with some TERF’s. I read this thread, and it was beautifully written. Including not to abuse JKRowling, but articulating why Rowling is completely wrong. Yet, every single TERF said how hateful the thread was. So, of course, we all asked “which part”…no response.
One person I REALLY got into it with, because they were saying really STUPID things. As I was arguing with this person. I just thought “how sad this persons life must be”. That they one they call me hateful and vile, once again, no able to point what I said that was hateful. But I’m just blinded by my “guilt”. Then she said something about how all these Harry Potter upstarts are turning their back on their mothers (despite her not being a mother and not knowing any transpeople) and she said that they have literally said “I turn my back on you”…Transpeople, have, in fact, NOT “literally” said that. How is that even true? Changing your genitals has nothing to do with “parenting skills”. It just is the way it is. No mother has control over that.
If my child decides that they were born in the wrong body. I would not for one second think they were turning their backs on me. Why would I? It has literally nothing to do with me. While they grow in my tummy, I have no way of determining what sex I think they should be. Shouldn’t it be if they’re good people, who have compassion for others, be the most important thing? Not what genitalia, I think they should have? That’s kind of perverted really.
How sad MUST her life be, to be this hateful, to be this angry with people they DON’T know and have nothing to do with. Just to make up complete lies, as their point? I also called her a pervert, for being that obsessed with strangers and what’s happening between their legs. Too me, that is pretty perverted.
I also started to realise how sexist she was as well. It was always the “mother this” or “mother that”. Like Fathers don’t even enter the field when it comes to parenting.
You don’t understand trans-people? Or anything in life, fine…You don’t have too. No one knows everything. But to straight up hate and lie, is not even CLOSE to not be good enough. It’s worth LITERALLY nothing!
If a single person says to me “Yeah, but she was sexually assaulted” I’m coming over to where ever you are and slapping you. So was I, 95% of the woman I know have been. Neither of us decided to hate people who had NOTHING to do with it. Do you all remember when Liam Neeson admitted that he went looking for any “black guy”, because a black guy raped his friend.
This is actually based on something my mum said to me this week. “Trump has shown the inhumanity of America to the world. They think because they call themselves Godly or Religious, that somehow everything they do is okay”. “That they have shown how America is not run by freedom, kindness, or dreams…It’s run by…
I think my mum hit the nail on the head with her comment.
Even with the “Walking Dumb “protesters”…I refuse to keep calling them protesters. One person told me that “they’s just desperate”. Desperate for what though? Not spending some time with family? You seem them with their huge cars, if they can’t afford to miss one payment on it, then they should have gotten a cheaper car.
Then you see them with signs like this:
Even the video of the woman who was shouting at the Nurses and Doctors to get out the way. Did you see the size of her truck, compared to her size? What does she need such a HUGE truck for? It’s like I have always thought, people don’t NEED cars/trucks that size. They are always the people, who push in front. They buy them, because they don’t want to die, but they also don’t care about other drivers or people in the road, or pedestrians. They’re “I can’t trust my own driving, so I’ll buy a huge car to protect myself”.
There is nothing human about these “people”. You see people who have less than these “desperado’s”, doing more with what they have.
I saw a great poster and if I can find the original owner I will credit them.
“In past times, the Government has called on it’s people to put their lives on the line to save their country. This time, they’re asking you to stay at home to save lives. What is it about that, that these people are just NOT getting?”.
Trump supporters humanising the virus, is a weird thing to read.
It’s the only way I can explain their explanations to myself. When I say humanising, I mean, how they just seem to ignore how viruses work. How they bring up the Constitution, how they seem to have “forgotten” that the virus is not just in America. Also, how it’s all China’s fault, so Trump doesn’t have to do anything about it.
That’s not how it works. One, no one is saying China didn’t do anything wrong. Except for Republicans saying that Democrats are saying that.
The purchasing of guns, why? What, they think they can shoot at the virus? Viruses don’t care about your guns, any Constitutions. It’s a virus, in fact, they can’t care. They don’t have those abilities.
I’m going to get a bit serious here folks…Well kind of…
This is a continuation of my previous post “Social Media and Abuse”. What I want to write about it though, is in general. Rather than an actual specific problem on social media.
As I mentioned before, in theory social media is fantastic. It allows us to keep in contact with loved ones. But have we now become social MEdia? Without even meaning too?
So many times I have seen people fighting about the same thing, they’re on the same page. They argue, though, like they are opposite sides.
It’s funny that this week I decided to write about this topic, but just yesterday I was victim of it myself. I initially started this post because, right now, in Australia. It’s reconciliation week, so reconciliation between us colonisers and the Indigenous people of Australia. So, it seems like a “great” time to talk about the issues that are similiar to African Americans, like the numerous deaths of IA in police custody. Right at the beginning of it, a NSW police officer, decided that because he was a having bad day and the Indigenous teenager used “horrifying” language. It was perfectly acceptable for them to use, kick his legs out from under him, use excessive force and cracked the teens jaw on the concrete floor.
So a LOT of Australians, are talking and using the BLM hashtag. One well known family friend of ours was then harassed by a bunch of African Americans, saying that Indigenous Australians weren’t black, and that America started the BLM movement, they came up with it. How dare we ride their coat tails. Funnily enough, a lot of these African Americans were a lot of lighter than Indigenous Australians.
Yes, they’re Indigenous to Australia, but that doesn’t make them black…Just for those who follow my on Instagram, that’s what my “America Arrogance” story was about. I asked them “Who cares who started it? You’re all going through the exact same thing! Can’t we end racism, together?”
I was going to post some photos of Indigenous Australians, but you have to ask their permission. They are one of those cultures, that believe that a photo takes away part of your soul. However, if you type in Indigenous Australia. They are…actually black. In fact, the ones who love in bush and haven’t really been in contact with that much “white culture”. Are, black. Not as black as the Sudanese, but close. They actually used to be darker, but you know…white people.
So as example one above. Even though this African American, stands with BLM. We were all arguing about it? If that makes sense. We were all on literally the same page of BLM…Yet, we weren’t. Because apparently Indigenous Australians, aren’t black??? They were saying this to actual Indigenous people too, which made me, personally, angrier.
As for example two, it was myself who experienced. After that conversation, I wrote an Instagram post saying … quote for quote … “Although I know some really love Americans, America’s arrogance will be it’s downfall”. Now, 99% of the people who replied too, or who I chatted too about it. Either agreed with me, or I had a good chat with them with how lucky I was that I knew good Americans.
One person, again, whose with BLM, but white and American, said that I was being xenophobic…By saying that the downfall of Americans will be their arrogance.
It’s not a fear, I have about America. It’s (sorry) just a fact. And those two are proof that I am right. Two Americans, who think you have to do it THEIR way, or you’re wrong. Even when you are literally standing for the same thing.
Both of these happened on a social MEdia site.
Although social media is a get place to read about others thoughts and points of views. I often wonder how many of us actually READ, or do we now just read what we want. Then react? I realised I was doing this a few months ago, and it made me stop doing it. If I don’t understand something, I wont reply, until I do.
