You might want to check some older pages here on KYM and see the absolute bias of its members, start with this one: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/operation-israel
Pretty much like a Roadrunner vs Wile E Coyote episode.
The difference is that in one case you’re branded “anti-Semite” and treated like a Nazi, in the other case however, nobody else calls you out for your hate speech bullshit because current consensus dictates that every Muslim is a suicide bomber hell-bent on destroying the Western Civilization or supporter of them while every Jew is someone who survived Auschwitz and trying to survive against a second holocaust, so has to supported in whatever they do.
It’s wrong to hate a whole people but it’s alright to criticize a state or call them out for their wrongdoings and injustice without getting branded a racist and denounced for it. People aren’t getting that so the lines are getting blurred, causing hatred this time because right of speech is curbed via hate speech excuse.
How about US giving one of their 50 states to the people of Israel if they’re so considerate about their well-being? Any desert state would do I guess. No power vacuum, no nothing, Palestine would get the land left.
It’s this “I’ll decide in your name” bullshit that Middle East was thrown into chaos by the British and “THIS IS OUR LAND” crap was the exact reason how Jewish people migrated there from all over the world, claimed the land for themselves and started the conflict. Just because a holy book dictated that it’s theirs even though their ancestors haven’t been there for dozens of generations.
So yeah, how about they give up their claims and live as equal citizens of Palestine? No? Then the least they could do is giving up the land they invaded, go back to the original borders that UN proposed and stop with land conquering through force of arms in the 21st century.
I agree that the people of Israel can demand a state of their own somewhere on the world but that should have been done at the expense of people who wronged them. Instead, Allies gave German lands to Poland and Polish lands to Stalin, then gave Arab lands to Jewish people. Arabs didn’t need to pay any reparations in this equation.
It’s not that they forgot it but they use it as a defensive shield whenever their state is criticized and they use it as an excuse to persecute third parties and invade their land.
Try criticizing their current actions and you get hit by the “anti-semite” brand like how Nazis marked Jews to invalidate your argument.
Being an independent people and state requires you to be held accountable for your own actions and attitude, they need to understand that and stop playing the “if you criticize us, you’re an enemy of our race and a madman” card.
This was the only song I ever needed in NV, so..
It’s a fact based on real situations. Same thing happened with tanks in WWII, shells were deflected from turret or glacis plate into the turret ring, having the crew getting killed from a ‘defeated’ threat. A spear deflected into the chest plate would have the same result.
I’m all for including more females in prominent roles in fiction but why gender-change an established character? Why not bring someone like Valkyrie into the spotlight instead? Or just create another character, Scandinavian mythos has enough females to draw upon.
Has science gone too far??!!!
Well, it was also shown in the anime now and then to get the basic idea still.
Mikasa is obsessed with Eren. Satsuki is wearing Mikasa’s attire.
His superpower is virtually anything he needs at the moment, ranges from the classic super strength and sixth sense to in this case, redirecting incoming electricity.
He can alter the numbers on a dice just by thinking, so this is not the weirdest stuff he did.
It’ll stick for the next week, so catchy. Still, I have no regrets!
In fact he’s a superhero cop that was framed.
I loved this movie as a kid and still love it, watched again last year. Might be the most entertaining combination of superhero and buddy cop comedies ever, blows most recent Hollywood movies away. Terence Hill and Ernest Borgnine are hilarious in it.
The same could be said for so called theocracies or religious states which also used religion as a means to control the populace. Still, atheists use those as examples for their arguments, so I don’t see why the same cannot be done for their counterparts on the other end of the spectrum.
It’s fair game of course, nobody here rejects that. However the apparent flaws of such arguments could also be pointed out in the same sense. If anything, an approach that boasts that it’s more modern, scientific and relying on intelligence should be aptly prepared to be put under scrutiny.
The artist, Shunya Yamashita is a gifted one whose works were made into many famous figures. Google him people.
The bulk mass of killings weren’t done in the name of atheism, yet they also ended lives during their persecution of religion and religious people. It eventually is about how far one is willing to go in the name of their cause, not religion or lack of it.
In any case, religion is merely one of many excuses to claim power through force. Nationality is the main driving power behind of nearly all wars in the last two centuries, yet I’m not seeing anyone around, proposing to remove such an ‘unnecessary’ concept that benefits nobody. Religion is a drop in the ocean as an excuse right now, only used by fundamentalists that comprise of small populations in several countries. Compare that to the excuse of ‘nationality’ that can draft billions of people tomorrow and send them to the meat grinder if called for by the governments.
Someone may be an atheist and just as dangerous. Check out the top mass murderers of 20th century, they killed a combined total of hundreds of millions, trying to spread their ideologies’ dogma that also preached “religion is evil”.
Religion or not, it’s all in the mindset. When one can believe that a certain concept holds greater value than life, he can kill. Be it for his nation, religion, race, ideology or sports team.
