Apparently, Asian, and Community: mirab3lle: spaceshipsandpurpledrank: moonlightoscar: locohost: cartnsncreal: Super disgusting! People are FUCKED UP.  It’s racial discrimination to treat someone less polite than someone else would be treated in the same circumstances, because of race. We can’t ignore the case of blatant racism. We MUST draw public attention to such cases. We must ensure that racists are identified and socially discredited. There are no reasons or excuses for racism. It’s just disgusting. from the KTLA news article: When Suh said she would report the action to Airbnb officials, the host replied: “It’s why we have Trump.” Suh said that comment made her painfully aware of how threatened minorities have become under the Trump administration. “For me personally, to now have someone say something racist to me and say it’s because of Trump, it was my fears coming true,” Suh said. “That people who held these racist beliefs felt emboldened.” The host went on to say she would “not allow this country to be told what to do by foreigners.” Suh is an American citizen who has called the U.S. home since she was 3 years old. “If this is my experience as a light-skinned Asian woman, what is it like for people who have darker skin than me or are Muslim?” Suh wondered aloud. “What is it like for people who are undocumented or not U.S. citizens yet?” BLESS HER FOR BEING VOCAL ABOUT THIS DO PEOPLE REALIZE HOW REAL THIS IS YET!? Ok so i work for Airbnb. And they actually don’t fucking play with discrimination. At all. We were banning people who were going to Charlottesville for the riot. But they can’t do anything unless we are told. And the most common thing i hear is “i don’t want to start a ruckus or cause any trouble” but.. in order to prevent this stuff… we need people to. Don’t stay silent. Reblogging again for that! ^^^^ Also apparently the host was fined $ 5,000 and was forced to attend a class on Asian Americans, as well as apologize and serve community service. Which is awesome.

Chicago, Children, and cnn.com: CNN Live TV US Army veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan has been deported to Mexico By Theresa Waldrop, CNN Updated 7:47 PM EDT, Sun March 25, 2018 “A US Army veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan has been deported to Mexico, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said. . . Perez, 39, was escorted across the US-Mexico border from Texas and handed over to Mexican authorities Friday, ICE said in a statement. . . Perez, his family and supporters, who include Sen. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, had argued that his wartime service to the country had earned him the right to stay in the United States and to receive mental health treatment for the PTSD and substance abuse. . . "This case is a tragic example of what can happen when national immigration policies are based more in hate than on logic and ICE doesn't feel accountable to anyone," Duckworth said in a statement following reports of Perez's deportation. "At the very least, Miguel should have been able to exhaust all of his legal options before being rushed out of the country under a shroud of secrecy." . . Perez was born in Mexico and legally came to the United States at age 8 when his father, Miguel Perez Sr., a semi-pro soccer player, moved the family to Chicago because of a job offer, Perez told CNN earlier. He has two children born in the United States. His parents and one sister are now naturalized American citizens, and another sister is an American citizen by birth. . .

America, Hello, and Internet: Nightmargin @NightMargin Follow If you're gonna contact your reps about #NetNeutrality,,-, and you do any sort of business online (etsy store, commissions, etc), it might be a good idea to bring up your personal stakes in the call. A loss of revenue for small businesses is a very tangible consequence. 2:50 PM-22 Nov 2017 Nightmargin NightMargin Follow basically, give the impression that people who do BUSINESS are gonna be PISSED To: Brendan.Carr@fcc.gov Hello Mr. Carr I am Casey, an American citizen and small business owner in Arkansas who primarily conducts business online The Title Il net neutrality rules currently in place protects my business and my clients by allowing everyone the same access to the same information, including public listings for my products and services, and my advertisements on social media The FCC chairman's proposed plans to destroy net neutrality has the potential to throttle my customer base and make my business as well as the millions of similar businesses in the country, no longer sustainable Removing net neutrality regulations would only provide short-term benefits to large cable companies by allowing them to abuse their power. A tiered internet system--one that charges my customer base extra fees to go on certain social media websites--would kill franchises of all sizes in today's world, where business operations of all sizes rely on social media marketing to advertise. This would ruin a lot of livelihoods, and would no doubt upset a lot of hardworking American citizens! I hope you can take this into consideration, and abandon the FCC's plans to overthrow net neutrality. Please protect the free market that the current internet provides Thank you anosci: nightmargin: Here’s another exciting round of “I hope the internet doesn’t blow up”! Rumor has it that you use the language of MONEY you might get people’s attention faster, so here goes nothing… Call your reps: battleforthenet.com Fax your reps:  text ‘resist’ to 50409, follow instructions Send stern email to the FCC: Ajit Pai : Ajit.Pai@fcc.gov Michael O'Rielly:  Mike.ORielly@fcc.gov Brendan Carr: Brendan.Carr@fcc.gov (You can use my template (3rd image) if you want, just swap out the name and state and whatever else applies to your business model.

We / America can do better. (Patriotism etc.)

If you’re in Colorado, you can vote for Lily Tang Williams for US Senate on November 8th 2016. Born in the wild west of China, Sichuan province before the Cultural Revolution, raised with her two sibling brothers by illiterate working-class parents, Lily grew up facing poor living conditions, food rationing, Communist indoctrination, and political and social chaos under Mao’s regime. In this tumultuous environment, she quickly developed street smarts and compassion as well as the values of perseverance and hard work.Lily received her university law degree at Fudan University in Shanghai and was a faculty member of the law school for three years.  She came over to the U.S.A. in 1988 and earned a Master’s degree at The University of Texas at Austin, School of Social Work.Lily worked for corporations in Hong Kong and the U.S.A. as a corporate executive. Lily became a Colorado small business woman and entrepreneur in 2000.Lily was nominated as a candidate by the Libertarian Party of Colorado in March of 2014 to run for the State of Representatives in House District 44. She is the former state chair of the Libertarian Party of Colorado and currently State Director for Our America Initiative. The Libertarian Party of Colorado unanimously nominated Lily on March 12th as the candidate for U.S. Senate. Her name will be on the ballot this November. voting for someone who isn’t an American to the U.S. Senate She went through the process. She did so legally. She made something of herself. She is officially one of the gang. She is Chinese. I don’t care what check mark is next to her name. Amendment XIV Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. Well, you’re wrong, so there’s always that. American citizen  ≠ American Based on that piece of paper some fucking border-hopper’s kids are suddenly just as American as somebody whose family fought in the revolution. I don’t think so.  I will never be Russian. I have no Russian blood. I can move to Russia, and imitate the Russians, but the reality is that I will never be an actual Russian. Immigration is destroying this country. America should not be the dumping spot for the rest of the world, yet that is what it has become.  Actually that’s exactly how it works and it’s *supposed* to work that way. Your idea of what it means to be an American seems alien to me. Foreign somehow. It doesn’t fit into our culture. This belief that our system is inferior, weak even… so weak that you tell us freedom must be jealously hoarded for the precious few.. For being this so called “True American” the degree of contempt you have for us is staggering. America is historically made up  of legal immigrants. All the way up until the 1900’s people were still migrating here for a better future, especially during  the World Wars. You can’t just say you have to descend from the British colonies to be a “true” American. There are plenty of legal immigrants that love this country more than to 10th gen people who were born here. southernnationalist? Oh wow. I’m shocked to see a racist is against legal immigration.  Is anyone else as depressed as I am that all these years the Democrats have been right about how many racists are left? Don’t like mass immigration from third world shitholes?Must be a fucking nazi! To be fair, though, the lady in the original post seems like she actually came here and fully embraced America rather than trying to make it like China. She’s one of the ones who did it the right way. I don’t disagree. I’m not crazy about the idea of people who weren’t born here holding federal office, but it is what it is. Fact of the matter is, we hear endlessly about how immigrants built America, and that’s true. What people seem to leave out, conveniently enough, is that the vast majority of those immigrants were from western Europe. True enough, hundreds of thousands of Chinese laborers  helped build California and the railroads. But America’s industrial super strength was built on the backs of European immigrants who were treated only marginally better than ethnic immigrants. And this is used to excuse endless immigration from South America, Mexico, the M.E., Asia, etc - all places where immigration to the US should be heavily controlled from so those who come have time to assimilate to OUR culture, language and customs - otherwise we get what we’re seeing now: people protesting an American running for an American office…….. with the fucking flag of Mexico in hand. Because they don’t like America, they don’t want to live in America, they want to live in North Mexico. No different than the muslims who come here en masse and demand to have their own sharia courts, they don’t want to live in America, they want to live in the American Islamic Emirates.  Wow conservative discourse is such garbage

It doesn’t fit into our culture.</p> <p>This belief that our system is inferior, weak even… so weak that you tell us freedom must be jealously hoarded for the precious few..</p> <p>For being this so called “True American” the degree of contempt you have for us is staggering.</p> </blockquote> <p>America is historically made up  of legal immigrants. All the way up until the 1900’s people were still migrating here for a better future, especially during  the World Wars. You can’t just say you have to descend from the British colonies to be a “true” American. There are plenty of legal immigrants that love this country more than to 10th gen people who were born here.</p> </blockquote> <p>southernnationalist? Oh wow.

America, Animals, and Children: conservativewoman 25 delete edit I honestly dont mean this as hate, i mean this is the most respectful way possible. I really don't understand you, you are a woman, and yet you support the man who would take away abortion rights, funding for planned parenthood etc? why would you let someone just take away your rights? economically Romney has some okay policy ideas, but how can you not think about all of the people he would be harming or just doesn't care about? gays immigrants women. and again, i mean to be most respectful. forgettingmymind <p><a href="http://mezzoalex.tumblr.com/post/34885160172/conservativewoman-i-was-asked-to-make-this" class="tumblr_blog">mezzoalex</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://conservativewoman.tumblr.com/post/34834537232/i-was-asked-to-make-this-rebloggable-well-you">conservativewoman</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>*I was asked to make this rebloggable…</p> <p>Well, you don’t know me as a person very well because I am Pro-Life, and I believe that Planned Parenthood should be privately funded, not federal funded like every other business in this nation. So I agree with Mitt Romney on his Pro-Life stance, as a woman’s right is whether or not she wishes to engage in sex, not to terminate the human life she created exercising her right. I also agree with him that Planned Parenthood should no longer receive tax dollars, and instead rely on donations and competition in the free market.</p> <p>However, Mitt Romney cannot ban abortion by himself. He does have the power to appoint a Supreme Court Justice, but there is an entire system called “checks and balances” in the government. The President is not a dictator, no matter how much President Obama wishes it were. He doesn’t have almighty power; that’s why we have the House of Representatives and the Senate as well as the Supreme Court. If Mitt Romney led a campaign to end abortion, I’d be all for it. But he’d have a whole lot of work in front of him to achieve that, and it’s glaringly clear that the economy and getting people back to work is Romney and Ryan’s #1 priority along with foreign policy to keep America safe.</p> <p>Furthermore, America’s economy is on the brink of collapse. A broken economy affects every single, solitary American, not just women or immigrants or gays. I know there are women out there who want abortion. I know there are gays out there who want marriage. I know there are immigrants out there who want to become citizens. But there are the majority in this country that include men, women, straights, gays, legal immigrants, blacks, whites, Hispanics, people of every walk of life who want a better life. If they cannot get jobs, if they cannot provide for themselves, the other social issues matter very little.</p> <p>There was a gay man who once said that he would love to be able to get married. (For the record, I am pro-gay civil unions.) But he would rather have a job to go to to provide a home and a hearth for his partner and their children rather than living on the street with nothing but a ring on his finger.</p> <p>On the subject of Planned Parenthood, they will be fine in the private market, just like Sesame Street. If people want it around, they will keep it around. That’s how businesses work. But taxpayers should not be responsible for funding it, especially as doing so violates religious freedoms from Catholics, Christians, Jews, etc. who don’t support abortion. (Not to mention, many religions disapprove of contraception considering sex should be kept within marriage where the two people should be prepared for children anyway.) Mitt Romney does not want to ban Planned Parenthood; he just doesn’t think the government should be spending taxpayer money on it when we’re $16 trillion dollars in debt and counting.</p> <p>Honestly, I am very confused when people say that Mitt Romney wants to “take away my rights” as a woman. What right does a woman <em>not </em>have in this country? For that matter, other than civil unions, what rights do gays <em>not </em>have in this country?</p> <p>Both women and gays are free to vote, to speak freely, to drive, to work, to get an education, to hold hands with the ones we love, to practice the religion of our choice, to come and go as we please, to show our faces in public, to spend our money on whatever legal thing we wish, to be free. In other parts of the world like the Middle East, women are denied those kinds of rights, and if they violate any of those rules, they will be punished from physical mutilation to a bullet in the brain. In those parts of the world, gays are beheaded for being who they are.</p> <p><em>Those</em> are real rights. Those are real rights being taken away, being persecuted, being wronged. Paying for your own birth control, donating to a company you believe in yourself, and all of those social issues are merely encouraging this nation to be one of fiscal responsibility and accountability. Asking women to pay for themselves is not oppression; cutting off a woman’s nose for leaving the house without a male relative is oppression.</p> <p>I am voting for Mitt Romney because I am worried about my future and this country’s future; not as merely a woman, but as an American. It’s funny because Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being sexist when it’s been the President’s campaign who has pandered to the female vote using expressions like “vote like your lady parts depend on it,” and putting out ads that compare voting like losing your virginity. All of the focus for women from the Obama campaign has all been sexual even though women’s unemployment is 11%, and there are more women living in poverty than there ever has been in our nation’s history. Not only that, President Obama’s own female staff makes 18% less than his male staff.</p> <p>Governor Romney has been falsely accused of being homophobic when he says that while he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, gay marriage is a state issue, and should the people of the state vote in favor, so be it. He’s also fought his career against discrimination based on race and sexuality, while also showing favor to civil unions. Meanwhile, President Obama has flip flopped on this issue numerous times. While he made his pro-gay marriage stance public this May right before the campaign started for this election, just last week during his MTV interview, he said he would not be focusing on gay marriage in his second term, and said that it was a state issue. This is the exact same position Mitt Romney has, and yet, Governor Romney is the one being called a homophobe.</p> <p>Furthermore, President Obama has run this country’s economy into the ground, supports the Muslim Brotherhood who treat women and gays worse than animals, denied the ambassador of Libya and his embassy relief during a terrorist attack they knew about well in advance, and, among other things, signed the NDAA, which allows the President to arrest and detain an American citizen without cause or due process. This is not the kind of America our Founding Fathers envisioned, and it certainly isn’t the kind of America in which I want to live. And those are the pressing issues that affect every single American, no matter what their demographic.</p> <p>I understand that people have their priorities. Your priorities are clearly not my priorities. But I do resent when people (not necessarily you specifically) insist that I “should” vote for Obama simply because I am a woman. Women won the right to vote on August 18, 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. So I see this constant “You are a woman, therefore, you should vote for Obama” insistence as a threat to my right as an American. I have the right to vote however I choose. Same as any gay or black or Hispanic individual. Because we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color — we are Americans who want this country to thrive economically again, to be respected around the world again, to protect our own.</p> <p>I understand that your message wasn’t meant to hate or to be disrespectful. I welcome questions. I welcome discussion. I appreciate when people legitimately want to learn my side. <strong>That is what being open-minded means.</strong>It’s about learning both sides and how they feel and think, and what matters to them. Just because I don’t agree with the other side, just because I don’t bend my own values or morals or beliefs or views to surrender to the other side doesn’t mean I am closed-minded. Because I try and educate myself. I try to listen and understand. I don’t stand for hate or threats or any of the horrible crap I’ve received through Anonymous on this site. But I welcome messages like yours; ones that simply just want to know where I stand. </p> <p>I hope I’ve given you a little insight to why I’m voting for Governor Romney next Tuesday, and I hope you understand a little bit better. :) God bless.</p> </blockquote> <p>“we are more than just our genitalia or our sexuality or our skin color —”</p> <p><img src="file:///C:/Users/Owner/Pictures/GIFS/clap2.gif"/></p> <p><img height="300" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcwdkqankJ1qm8px6o1_400.gif" width="400"/></p></blockquote>

Advice, Being Alone, and Anaconda: VS DONT TREAD ON ME The Nazi Party The Tea Party 1. Nationalism 2. Authoritarianism 3. Social Darwinism 4. Indoctrination 5. Propaganda 6. Anti-Intellectualism 7. Militarism 8. Anti-Communism 1. Nationalism 2. Authoritarianism 3. Social Darwinism 4. Indoctrination 5. Propaganda 6. Anti-Intellectualism 7. Militarism 8. Anti-Communism ANY QUESTIONS? COM <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://lolingatliberals.tumblr.com/post/34657371599/back-in-the-day-youngins-used-to-go-on-memebase">lolingatliberals</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Back in the day, youngins used to go on Memebase to laugh at funny pictures of Cats wearing pieces of toast as helmets — Today, this same site also seems to offer the occasional bit of political advice to it’s 12-18 year old primary userbase.</p> <p>How lovely.</p> <p>But let’s take a look at what shit they are shoveling to our kids, yes?</p> <p><strong>1. Nationalism.</strong></p> <p>True. Both GOP members and the Nazis were nationalistic. But did both subscribe to a shared patriotism of the same land? This is important to consider because being nationalistic means absolutely nothing on it’s own. People who consider themselves patriotic generally are subscribing to the values that their nation has adopted as being representative of their own personal ideologies.</p> <p>Thus, being nationalistic means nothing on it’s own unless you factor in the principles that nation exhibits as a primary variable.</p> <p>Canadians are some of the most nationalistic people on the planet earth.. As were the Russians of the old Soviet Union. Are they much like Nazi Germany simply because of it?</p> <p><strong>2. Authoritarianism.</strong></p> <p>Defined by Wikipedia as:</p> <blockquote> <p><strong>dictatorship: a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.).</strong></p> </blockquote> <p>Indeed, Nazi Germany was a one-party dictatorship run by Adolf Hitler. There was no declaration of rights signed by his Government, nor was any dissent allowed without harsh consequence.</p> <p>By contrast, the Tea Party is:</p> <ul><li>Anti-big Government, and,</li> <li>Pro-Constitution.</li> </ul><p>Those two factors alone disrupt this entire second point.. Both because the Tea Party favors limiting the authority of Government, and because their hyper Constitutionalism would never allow the infringement of the liberties granted within.</p> <p>Freedom of Speech, Faith, and Property are essential tenets to Republicanism.</p> <p>3. Social Darwinism.</p> <p>Social Darwinism is a theory based in the notion that environments shape the groups within those environments. Basically, ensuring that the group most capable of survival in that environment will ultimately inherit it.</p> <p>I don’t quite understand what this has to do with politics — But I am assuming the Liberals have taken a racial edge to this long-held component of biology. In that case, I’d simply laugh and remind them that it was the Republicans who freed the slaves, and ensured the Constitution [pesky little bugger] protected them to the full extent of which it protected every other person who stepped foot on American soil.</p> <p>The Democrats [confederacy] were responsible for the push for the dehumanization of non-whites, and formed the original KKK.</p> <p>Still — Somehow the Tea Party is racist for wanting to encourage the independence of every American citizen, and not perpetuate the emotional bondage of historical victimization and Government dependency of African-Americans and other minorities.</p> <p><strong>4. Indoctrination.</strong></p> <p>Because being a loathed minority political group is akin to indoctrination.</p> <p><em>[See: Projection]</em></p> <p>Mind you, I would dare ask a Liberal who, exactly, is not indoctrinated.. Most likely, their answer will include themselves, and anyone who thinks like themselves.. Which is a perfect segway intoooooo~</p> <p><strong>5. Propaganda.</strong></p> <p><img alt="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_baOacp0B_V4/SRHrvWpaanI/AAAAAAAABvM/6QPre_iePHg/s400/obama_hope_progress_change.jpg" class="decoded" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_baOacp0B_V4/SRHrvWpaanI/AAAAAAAABvM/6QPre_iePHg/s400/obama_hope_progress_change.jpg"/></p> <p>Propaganda simply means any biased information used to mislead others into viewing a group or person favorably or unfavorably. It is used by every company, group, political leader, ideology, etc… No one is exempt from the use of propaganda to attempt to sway others to see their point of view as being the ‘right’ point of view.</p> <p>The picture I am replying to is propaganda. It is pro-Liberalism in nature with the intention of attempting to sway it’s readers towards subscribing to the same paradigm it does.</p> <p>My blog is propaganda… Tumblr is propaganda.</p> <p>What Liberals argue about propaganda is a case study in how effective propaganda can be. They are so indoctrinated that they truly believe that their ideology isn’t one. They are without ideology. Their views are without bias. Their political subscription is simply the absolute best thing that no one but like-minded comrades seem to understand.</p> <p><strong>6. Anti-Intellectualism.</strong></p> <p>Define intellectualism, love.</p> <p><strong>7. Militarism.</strong></p> <p>Militarism is simply defined as believing in having a strong national defense system and military.</p> <p><em>How awful.</em></p> <p>I mean.. It’s just so capitalistic, you know? It’s not like anyone else has armies. We are just war mongering in supporting our troops and securing our borders.. And just meddling when we try to stop Governments from mass-slaughtering their own people overseas.</p> <p><strong>8. Anti Communism.</strong></p> <p>My favorite!</p> <p>The Nazis were Socialists. In fact, the word ‘Nazi’ is an abbreviation of the National <em>Socialist</em> Worker’s Party’s German title. The Nazis were not anti-Communism.. They were <em>anti-Soviet Union</em>.</p> <p>And yes.. The Tea Party, as all Conservatives, are anti Communism — But not without support, in this area! The 100,000,000+ people who died under Communist rule in only about 100 years are pretty anti-Communist, too.</p> <p><em>[Goddamn..]</em></p> </blockquote> <p>The original post is HILARIOUSLY stupid. I mean what even?</p>
