She writes: “ I stood there for twenty minutes, easily. Hitler Youth kept trying to preach about “the evils of the Jews” and the big guy barely let him get a word in edgewise. At one point, the big guy yelled, “I will be here ALL DAY” and the crowd cheered.” I promise this will be the best thing you see today. Where’s a goddamn bullhorn when you need it? wow that preacher is probably shitting his pants low key with some big ass biker that close to his face  Caption for those who need it– the guy in the suit is saying shit like “all races must serve us as put here by God” and a lot of racist/anti Semitic drivel. Every time he opens his mouth to speak though, the biker yells “AHHHHHHH!!!” Until the man in the suit shuts up again. When the man in the suit takes a breath and opens his mouth, the biker doesn’t even let him get started and just screams “AHHHHH”…. This happens a few times. The guy in the suit plows ahead but the biker screams and says “No no no no!!!” I love biker dude Make racists afraid again. Um, sorry, but the guy in the suit deserves to speak his opinions. How’d you like to get screamed at everything time you spoke about what you are passionate about? I’m not saying I agree with his opinion, but that doesn’t make shutting him down like this right. Freedom of Speech. Just agree to disagree and walk away. 1) Freedom of Speech means you have the right to speak your mind without being punished or censored by the government. It does not mean other people have to listen to you, and it does not mean they can’t yell over you if you’re saying something disgusting and inflammatory. The Biker Dude has just as much right to do what he’s doing as the Neo-Nazi. Nobody’s right is being infringed upon here. 2) The guy is “passionate about” hating and inciting violence against Jews. I’m passionate about information literacy, candle-making, and giving snuggles to my pet rabbit. There’s a fucking difference, there.  3) “Agree to disagree” is something you say when two people can’t come to a consensus over whether or not The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars movie. It’s not something you say when one person is Jewish and the other person believes Jews are a evil satanic cabal trying to enslave the white race who must be stopped at all costs. That’s not an “agree to disagree” topic. We don’t “agree to disagree” over the issue of whether or not Jews are people. We don’t “agree to disagree” over whether or not black people, immigrants, Muslims, LGBTQ folks, etc. are deserving of basic human rights. These things are not up for debate, and there is no middle-ground to be had with people who think otherwise.  “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”– Randall Munroe Always reblog the anti-hate bikie. : sleepydumpling: welkinalauda: tikkunolamorgtfo: xmasterassassinx: winterpunk: xekstrin: crackrockdebby: d–i–y—-orgasms: be-blackstar: tikkunolamorgtfo: WATCH THIS: MAN SHUTS DOWN ANTISEMITIC WHITE POWER PREACHER One of my friends in the Boston area took this video and gave me permission to post it.

darktripz: The Epic Of Gilgamesh In Sumerian The EPIC OF GILGAMESH is the earliest great work of literature that we know of, and was first written down by the Sumerians around 2100 B.C. Ancient Sumer was the land that lay between the two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, in Mesopotamia. The language that the Sumerians spoke was unrelated to the Semitic languages of their neighbors the Akkadians and Babylonians, and it was written in a syllabary (a kind of alphabet) called “cuneiform”. By 2000 B.C., the language of Sumer had almost completely died out and was used only by scholars (like Latin is today). No one knows how it was pronounced because it has not been heard in 4000 years. What you hear in this video are a few of the opening lines of part of the epic poem, accompanied only by a long-neck, three-string, Sumerian lute known as a “ngish-gu-di”. The instrument is tuned to G - G - D, and although it is similar to other long neck lutes still in use today (the tar, the setar, the saz, etc.) the modern instruments are low tension and strung with fine steel wire. The ancient long neck lutes (such as the Egyptian “nefer”) were strung with gut and behaved slightly differently. The short-neck lute known as the “oud” is strung with gut/nylon, and its sound has much in common with the ancient long-neck lute although the oud is not a fretted instrument and its strings are much shorter (about 25 inches or 63 cm) as compared to 32 inches (82 cm) on a long-neck instrument. For anyone interested in these lutes, I highly recommend THE ARCHAEOMUSICOLOGY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST by Professor Richard Dumbrill. The location for this performance is the courtyard of Nebuchadnezzar’s palace in Babylon. The piece is four minutes long and is intended only as a taste of what the music of ancient Sumer might have sounded like. “The Sumerians” by Grendel Dark : darktripz: The Epic Of Gilgamesh In Sumerian The EPIC OF GILGAMESH is the earliest great work of literature that we know of, and was first written down by the Sumerians around 2100 B.C.

diarrheaworldstarhiphop: 😕 ☕️oops: THE HILL February 21, 2017-08:23 AM EST Clinton to Trump: Speak out against anti-Semitic attacks now GREG NASH BY JENNIFER CALFAS TWEET f SHARE MORE Hillary Clinton is urging President Trump to speak out against the surge of anti-Semitic threats and attacks around the country. MEANWHILE New Leak: Top DNC official Wanted to Use Bernie Sanders's Religious Beliefs Against Him Sam Biddle July 22 2016, 9:38 a.m. 595 Photo: Mark Wilson/Getty Images AMONG THE NEARLY 20,000 internal emails from the Democratic National Committee, released Friday by Wikileaks and presumably provided by the hacker "Guccifer 2.0," is a May 2016 message from DNC CFO Brad Marshall. In it, he suggested that the party should "get someone to ask" Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders about his religious beliefs. From:MARSHALL@dnc.org To: MirandaL@dnc.org, PaustenbachM@dnc.org, DaceyA@dnc.org Date: 2016-05-05 03:31 Subiect: No shit It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist.This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist. The email was sent to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda and Deputy Communications Director Mark Paustenbach. It's unclear who the "someone" in this message could be - thougha member of the press seems like a safe bet, A request for comment sent to Marshall was not immediately returned UPDATE at 1:03 p.m. ET: Marshall emails to say "I do not recall this, I can say it would not have been Sanders. It would probably be about a surrogate." We have asked him who that surrogate could possibly be. And although Sanders is not mentioned by name, he was the only Jewish candidate from either party-an apparent weakness that Marshall believed the party could exploit in favor of Hillary Clinton It is also unclear why the Democratic National Committee, which isn't supposed to favor one Democratic candidate over another until they receive a nomination, would have attempted to subvert the Sanders campaign on the grounds that "he is an atheist." diarrheaworldstarhiphop: 😕 ☕️oops

But they chose war. In the recent rounds of conflict Israel has been slandered, when the Gazan leaders use children as human shields. More dead kids= more sympathy. I am not saying that Palestine is not free from blame BUT the nation of Israel was made, despite its good intentions, by taking the  land of people who lived there. That alone is enough to question the integrity of the nation. I agree that Israel has a better internal record for human rights when compared to any other Islamic nation but that is a distraction argument in my opinion: “we don’t stone our women so let us treat Palestinians like dogs hahah hehehe”. That’s like saying the U.S. has the right to occupy Saudi Arabia because all of Saudi Arabia’s neighbors have a bad record with women’s rights. Although it may be true, two wrongs don’t make a right. Israel’s better treatment of women and LGBT people (if we ignore the super conservative orthodox jews who are pretty sexist and hompphobic) is no excuse to have it mistreat others. As for the human shields thing, Hamas and other Palestinian groups labeled as terrorist groups  have indeed  done awful things …as does Israel …. I’m not defending atrocities committed on any side but one thing is certain Israel, by treating Palestinians so poorly is only making things worse for itself. As for the solution. I don’t know. The solution I want is too unrealistic, but that’s a discussion for another day. Zionism is rampant in the conservative circles of Israel, the ruling circles as of now…. it is not good. I am aware both sides have done bad but in my opinion Israel started it, it has the power to make things better, and this is a thorny issue that involves history, religion, and politics  BUT Israel is on land that is not theirs. Maybe it was at one point, but at the creation of the country it was not.   By that argument America should give its land back to the Indians. No. I said it should treat the Palestinians better (you know how oppressive Palestine is right now due to Israel let’s not play games) . That doesn’t mean give the entire country back to them. This in theory sounds like the nicest thing to do but i think it’s still unfair since we now have generations of Israelis who call the country their home. Like I said before two wrongs dont make a right. I personally support a one-state solution which gives the land to both people also it isn’t a solution based on religion or any of that.  But there are many reasons why this is problematic.

I’m not defending atrocities committed on any side but one thing is certain Israel, by treating Palestinians so poorly is only making things worse for itself. As for the solution. I don’t know. The solution I want is too unrealistic, but that’s a discussion for another day. Zionism is rampant in the conservative circles of Israel, the ruling circles as of now…. it is not good. I am aware both sides have done bad but in my opinion Israel started it, it has the power to make things better, and this is a thorny issue that involves history, religion, and politics  BUT Israel is on land that is not theirs. Maybe it was at one point, but at the creation of the country it was not.  : ISRAEL ATTACKS BOYCOTT ISRAELI APARTHEID Palesties wpalestcanpigr. dipperpines-blog: c-bassmeow: dipperpines-blog: c-bassmeow: pxlestine: A British Jewish man stuck a “Boycott Israel” sticker to his Kippah in solidarity with Palestinians. This is very important. Americans especially (but others are guilty) have to realize that being against or criticizing Israel IS NOT ANTI-SEMITIC. Caring about human rights is not anti-semitic. A criticism of Israel is not a criticism of all Jewish people. Many Jewish people (especially in Tel-Aviv and NYC) are EXTREMELY critical of Israel. Get it through your head. Criticism of something doesn’t always mean you hate something or you hate the people you are criticizing.  If you really care about human rights you’d support Israel. Explain please. Don’t worry I’m not like most Tumblr users that will throw a fit at any sign of dissent.  Well thats good! xD For one, the record speaks for itself. Particularly on women’s rights, while no nation is perfect, Israel is #1 in the middle east. Stonings which occur in Saudi Arabia and Iran are nonexistent. Every citizen is allowed a vote. Regardless of race. IN the case of gaza, Israel withdrew when they probably shouldn’t have, to give gaza an opportunity to make something of themselves. So what do they do? Destroy all the infrastructure Israel left behind and fire rockets at Israel. Isrel put up the blockade after that. They blew it. They could have been another Dubai if they wanted. But they chose war. In the recent rounds of conflict Israel has been slandered, when the Gazan leaders use children as human shields. More dead kids= more sympathy. I am not saying that Palestine is not free from blame BUT the nation of Israel was made, despite its good intentions, by taking the  land of people who lived there. That alone is enough to question the integrity of the nation. I agree that Israel has a better internal record for human rights when compared to any other Islamic nation but that is a distraction argument in my opinion: “we don’t stone our women so let us treat Palestinians like dogs hahah hehehe”. That’s like saying the U.S. has the right to occupy Saudi Arabia because all of Saudi Arabia’s neighbors have a bad record with women’s rights. Although it may be true, two wrongs don’t make a right.
