Issues

Has someone told the Trump supporters the differences between their “issue” and the whole George Floyd “issue”? I have seen so many Trump supporters with meme’s about the differences between how they protest and how democrats “protest”.

See here’s the difference. They were “protesting” because they couldn’t get their hair done, and their solution to not being able to meet up with their hairdressers, were to mock pro-choicers. Hang up effigies of state leaders. Storm federal buildings and stand outside building with guns. And cosplayer costumes.

The issue with George Floyd, is the continual murder of unarmed and innocent POC. By the people SUPPOSED to protect them aka the Police…and not the band.


I really HATE the new wordpress formatting. I’ve gone back to the classic view.

 

Guns = Peaceful now?

Do you all remember Colin Kapernick? He is a NFL player who knelt, instead of standing for the National Anthem. In a protest against racism…and probably, to be honest, against the racist that is Trump. Do you all remember what happened?

“Lock those sons of bitches up”.

“Lynch him”

Now, we have “The Walking Dumb” “peacefully protesting” with guns and trying to bang down doors…So peaceful. Where are the police? In every single one of these protests, I have to yet to see a single officer. Making sure those with guns, don’t actually use them. I have seen nurses and doctors trying to ban these people, more than officers.

Who do these people think they are? The militia against the virus? “The invisible enemy”. How can people take your guns away, if you’re in your house with your guns? You are more likely to get your gun taken away, brandishing it about like that…IF THEY WERE BLACK. Can you imagine BLM marches, just being allowed to do this? Can you imagine seeing NO officers around? The racism in America, is just becoming more and more blatant.

How on EARTH were they able to get THAT close?!

 

 

This is my problem with people who have a problem with people who “take the knee”…See my problem?

Problem

In case you don’t have a single social media account, which is entirely possible. You may or may not have missed the whole #taketheknee who-ha. If you did, here’s a bit of a break down:

There is an American Colin Kapernick football player, who takes the knee in a peaceful protest against the very obvious racism in American, nothing at all to do with military…That is until Donald Trump, a war dodger said that anyone who takes the knee should be arrested. Without speaking to a single person who does take the knee, he just decided it was against the military….The guy who dodged the war and has never spent a day fighting in his life, is suddenly an expert in War. Suddenly people had a problem, when just the weekend before when Kapernick did the EXACT same thing and I doubt any of these people even noticed.

Then all hell broke loose. people started using pictures of dead soldiers coffin…you know soilders who can’t speak for themselves, which is so respectful of course *insert sarcasm here*…The biggest irony I found that a lot of Vets supported Kapernick. A lot of them actually said…with their own words and mouths…They fought so that people could peacefully protest, Kapernick has never ONCE said anything against the military. They fought against their people to have the FREEDOM to not be under a Dictator. Yet, people are completely ignoring this!

This is where my ultimate problem comes in…

These exact same people who have a problem with Kapernick…Have NO problem with the white supremacist group. That only a couple of weeks beforehand had worn the swastika symbols on their the tops…The people are “fine people” and they have no problems with those people. These “fine people” wore a symbol that millions of people fought and died to get rid of. In Germany it is ILLEGAL to advertise that symbol. Where’s the outrage for the soldiers who died under that symbol, where are the pictures of the dead soldiers who actually fought the Nazis, the pictures of the people who died in the concentration camps. Where are the pictures of the concentration camps of people who died because of that symbol? Where is the outrage against the people who wore symbols that soldiers actually fought against, the whole reason that Kapernick can peacefully protest against the more than obvious racism problem in America.

These people NEED to ask themselves why it’s alright to turn their backs on people who are just wanting their fellow countrymen to be safe…But yet don’t make a single noise about the white supremacist who wore a symbol that is ILLEGAL in Germany, who the allies actually fought against.

You are free to turn your backs on the NRL players, just as we are free to call you out on it. Being Free doesn’t mean you are free ONLY if everyone agrees with you?

In a shot of complete coincidence, I was watching “Band of Brothers” probably the most depressingly awesome series ever. Not just on War, but just an incredible series. There is one episode, I’ve seen it about 15 times “This is why we fight” I know it’s coming, yet, I can’t stop the tears. I can never watch with other people, it’s devastating. As I watched that episode again today, I found this article as well. If you can’t understand why you should be outraged by those “fine people” after watching that episode and reading this article…I am just going to assume that you have no heart.

Band of Brothers: how it’s episode was also it’s most devastating. 

 

Come Together <3

I woke up this morning to see the (numbers appear to be different, but they are in the millions) French people peacefully walking against extremist (but I have to remember NOT to read the news articles on Facebook,lol) I find that it’s been a bit terrifying to read the news articles on Facebook, they are terrifying and I tend to end up getting really involved and getting into arguments.

To see though MILLIONS coming together to say “No” to extremists and terrorist is a wonderful site, even if there are people out there who just don’t get it. I think that a lot of them think that we should take up guns and kill everyone. Some of the more interesting comments that I’ve heard are:

“Christians have never killed anyone in the name of God”

“Why aren’t there any Muslims marching? Because they care more about than idol” I promptly pointed out that it might have something to do with everyone is saying “Kill all Muslims”.

Anyways, I do not want to concentrate on that. I think it shows something when in the last few months we have had some situations around the world where we as a societywe had a choice. We could give into the fear, or we can show those extremists that we wont be scared off or intimidated. I personally think it’s great to see that most people in this world thinks that we should show those people that we’re not going to take it, instead of becoming vigilantism ourselves!
