America, Gif, and Love: This isn't freedom, this is fear. ask-cap-america-anything: raavynndigital: minuiko: wintercyan: onegoodey: jumpingjacktrash: hobbitkaiju: verysharpteeth: jenngeek: doktorfylthe: Characterization done right. Steve Rogers in a single gif. We joke about Steve’s patriotism as his strong suit, but his actual strength was his sense of moral right. His whole philosophy is summed up in the line “I don’t like bullies” in the first movie. Steve loves his country. He loves it enough to be at the front of the line trying to fix what he sees as moral wrong in it. kehinki: #there isn’t even any indication he loves his country t b h#all we know is that he wants to fix what he deems morally impermissible#”I don’t like bullies /I don’t care where they’re from/”#that last bit is important steve rogers is patriotic in the most real sense: he represents the concept at the core of the american ideal, the concept of freedom that is the reason our political system is designed to adapt and alter itself for constant improvement. he is not loyal to any momentary leader or agenda, and when those leaders and agendas stand contrary to his core ideal of self-determination and freedom from oppression, he’ll speak up without hesitation. honestly, i never would’ve thought captain america would be my favorite superhero, but he’s the activist i aspire to be. Captain America is loyal to nothing but the dream. The problem with Captain America’s image in the public mind is that people recite the first line of his byword and ignore the last part : “My country, right or wrong;if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.” Not to mention his speech in Spiderman #537. My favorite line from the issue: “This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree besides the river of truth, and tell the whole world— —No, you move.” Steve Rogers is a radical and that’s why I love him. I agree with all this.

CIA is getting lazy O.o “It’s just a script whats the problem lol” the problem is that Fox, CNN, CBS, and all the other channels repped here, despite claiming to be different companies with different viewpoints, all had the exact same script, word for word, to push the exact same viewpoint that smaller, independent news outlets are Fake News and “A Threat To Our Democracy.” The fact that they have scripts isn’t the problem. The problem is they all, each and every one, have the exact same script down to the letter and in some cases the fucking inflection, which basically reads “small news stations are untrustworthy and a Threat to your Way Of Life, only trust Us, We Are Verified.” Uh, that’s sort of the opposite of what’s going on here. All of the stations here are local stations which have been bought by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, a conservative group which has come under fire in the past for forcing news anchors on its stations to recite right-wing propaganda. So, yes, small news stations are under attack - but not from CNN and CBS (the stations in the video are local affiliates, not the national networks), from being taken over by Sinclair. Until recently the FCC wouldn’t allow this kind of broad ownership of the airwaves. There’s actually an active investigation into whether Ajit Pai changed rules to benefit Sinclair’s recent expansions (source: CNN, NYTimes). Is no one going to point out how a lot of them where Fox News??… Are you dense? These are local media stations owned by the same parent company, not the same as the Fox News network. And several of them were CBS and ABC. This has literally nothing to do with Fox News. When you follow the money trail, you realize there is literally no difference between so-called “liberal” and “conservative” media.  Of course there isn’t. They’re just there to sate the masses and keep them divided. Anybody who doesn’t know this by now is kidding themselves
