How shocking

Here’s a link to to a local story about it- (X)

Please stop faking hate crimes. It discredits real claims. 

I don’t see anything saying or indicating that this man was insincere in his action.

Jews can be Nazis, and Black people can too.

I can see a pattern here :/

Everyone can see it, except for all the ammosexual gun nuts who still think Obama is coming for their beloved guns

This is a terribly cherrypicked graph. It’s “since 1991″ and includes a shooting from 1991 in the graph, so there’s really no pattern and it indicates… nothing. If it were in roughly chronological order, it would have some kind of point, but the shooting from 2015 is below the shooting from 1991.

Here’s a much better infographic: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/mass-shootings-in-america/

WASHINGTON—In an effort to assist victims still struggling from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria, the Trump administration announced Monday that it was sending 30 million nothing to Puerto Rico. “The people of Puerto Rico need our support, which is why we’re pledging to deliver them tens of millions of nothing whatsoever,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, adding that nothing, on neither ships nor airplanes, would be rushed to the island to help desperate residents recover from the storm that has killed at least 48 people and virtually destroyed the commonwealth’s electrical grid. “Our relief effort includes tons of crucial nothing for the sick and injured, as well as thousands of gallons of fresh, clean nothing for inhabitants literally in danger of dying of thirst. We’ve also marshaled our resources to ensure that the people of Puerto Rico receive this nothing as soon as possible, and they should expect absolutely nothing at all to begin arriving within days.” Sanders went on to say that the Trump administration was also petitioning Congress to pass legislation that would allocate 75.5 billion nothing to help Puerto Rico with ongoing rebuilding efforts.

Tulsa OK 1921: US Government Bombs US City


National Guard troops patrolling the streets armed. Thousands of black people held in a convention center. Hundreds of black dead, with bodies piled like wood. That was not New Orleans, that was Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June 1921.

On May 30, 1921 a young black man named Dick Rowland, stumbled into a white woman, while entering an elevator. He was accused of assault, and arrested the next day. Newly rich from oil Tulsa, was a Ku Klux Klan town. Rowland was sentenced to be hanged. The Tulsa Tribune called for a “Negro lynching tonight.”

The white mob was surprised when they were met by several dozen armed black men, dressed in their World War I uniforms. This led to a racist three day destruction of the black neighborhood of Greenwood. The Red Cross reported 300 mostly dead black people.

Greenwood called “Little Africa,” was a relatively wealthy community. White mobs, many deputized, destroyed every house, store, church or school. The mob met resistance from an armed black population. Governor Robertson declared martial law. The National Guard arrived with machine gun mounted trucks, and airplanes hovering over Greenwood. It was the first time an American city was bombed from the air, by the US government.

Over 6,000 black people, were round up and held in the convention center and fairgrounds, as long as eight days. The homeless were shuttled into a tent city, where typhoid and malnutrition took over. Blacks were allowed out of the convention center, with a tag, with an employers name. Thosands fled the city.

Attempts to turn Greenwood into an industrial zone were unsuccessful. For several years, it was deprived of paved streets, running water, and garbage collection.

Always needs to be reblogged

Shit they don’t teach you in school.

From wikipedia:

About 10,000 black people were left homeless, and property damage
amounted to more than $1.5 million in real estate and $750,000 in
personal property ($30 million in 2017). Some black people claimed that
policemen had joined the mob; others said that National Guardsmen fired a
machine gun into the black community and a plane dropped sticks of
dynamite.
In an eyewitness account discovered in 2015, Greenwood attorney Buck
Colbert Franklin described watching a dozen or more planes, which had
been dispatched by the city police force, drop burning balls of
turpentine on Greenwood’s rooftops.

Republicans also generally support sales taxes over income and property taxes, since they’re regressive, taking larger percentages from the incomes of the poor than the rich.

*Cultural Marxism

Gas everyone involved in this.

Why, though? What do the Scouts teach boys that girls can’t learn? Just call it the Scouts and teach everyone to be better people for themselves.

Seriously though, why are boy and girl scouts segregated? There’s ultimately no reason good enough

Okay you must have never participated in a scouting program before. Boy Scouts is special because it is a place for young boys and older boys to socialize and pass down knowledge and social skills, it’s a psychological setting that is impossible to maintain when there is someone of the opposite gender there. That is why they are segregated and that’s why this is stupid

I was in the scouts you crusty fuck. I know exactly how the scouts are. It would not change one fucking bit with girls in it.Go back to reblogging memes and scouring notes on posts on your dash till you can think of something clever to say; leave the big thinking to people who know what they are talking about.

ItS a PsYcHoLoGiCaL SeTtInG get fucked

When your u have to result to insults inorder to try and invalidate a reasonable point.

“we must teach boys to that gender segregation is good actually and boys cant socialize with girls” aint a reasonable point lad

1. There is absolutely nothing inherently male about the core skill sets you learn standard in boy scouts. 

2. That’s not why they are segregated. They’re segregated because once upon a time there was only the boy scouts, and then eventually somebody started the girl scouts. 

3. I’ve lived in communities small enough that there was either one or the other. For those kids, regardless of gender, who want to be scouts, they should have the right to join a group without having to bus themselves into the next county. 

Reblogging for the commentary, because some people don’t seem to realize how important this is. Honestly, the whole “boys act different and can’t do certain things if girls are around” bit is so toxic and ignorant.

Bonus cringe: “opposite gender” ew ew ew

What’s fucked up about all this is that anyone who actually spends time around kids or even REMEMBERS being a kid knows that children don’t have these barriers at all. They share interests and bond all the same, whatever their gender, until adults butt in and force them to see this arbitrary rift. There is nothing special that only “boys” can bond over. KIDS ARE KIDS.

And…if boys just want to hang out with other boys they can just schedule some time to hang out with their guy friends outside of Scout meetings? Is deciding who they want to hang out with on their own time something that boys can’t do anymore?

“gas everyone involved with this”

“OMFG U FUCKIN SJW CUNT CUCK UR JUST CALLIN ME A NAZI CUZ I DISAGREE WITH U!!!!!!!!!!!!”

oh hey ol’ Genocide Bill is at it again

take it from a former Boy Scout, Scouting is literally just daycare for awkward pubescent kids. if you think that there are enough MATURE kids to teach life and social skills in Scouting to the younger ones, you’d be so disappointed.

When I was in scouts, I got appointed to be leader by default. Nobody else showed up to the meetings frequently enough and I was the only one with any additional teamwork training. 

It was a fucking joke. They handed out awards and ranks to kids who had learned absolutely nothing. I stretched the rules constantly, and I was still barely holding them together by a system of threats and bribery.

Scouting is only good for putting a title and some public service hours on a college application. If you want a kid to learn skills, teach them yourself.

Still applies: anyone saying “gas everyone involved with this” is fucking disgusting.

I take issue with this and I honestly can’t give a real reason as to why, I just do.

There are some traditional things that shouldn’t be messed with I think. If you want girls to learn the same things they learn in the Boy Scouts then they should be petitioning Girl Scouts to be more like Boy Scouts instead of trying to force the Boy Scouts to allow girls in too.

Except they didn’t force. This wasn’t a lawsuit; it was a unanimous decision from the board of the Boy Scouts

If you can’t give any real reason why you take issue with it, your offense is kneejerk. You are being a reactionary. “We shouldn’t mess with tradition” is a fallacy and a terrible argument.

The argument is not everything needs changing. There’s already a Girl Scouts. Change that to be more like what you want it to be instead of changing something else.

Frankly, ‘reactionary’ would be the ones who are changing the Boy Scouts. There’s no reason to; literally none. Again, there already is a Girl Scouts and yet someone had the inane idea that instead of just changing that they should change the Boy Scouts instead. It makes no sense.

“The argument is not everything needs changing.”

That’s not an argument. That’s an assertion. An argument would require facts, of which you have admitted you have none (”literally none,” as you’ve just put it). Thus, your position is wholly reactionary.

The quite obvious reason to change the Boy Scouts need not be stated. I am sure that, once you calm from your hysterics, you are intelligent enough to piece it together on your own. Or not. That’s your business.

I’m not arguing that I’m not a reactionary, I’m arguing that there is no reason for the Boy Scouts to be changed, because there isn’t.

If there really were an “obvious reason”, you’d have stated it by now. Seeing as you haven’t and instead continue to try and belittle me by calling me a reactionary and hysterical, I’m inclined to continue to believe there is no reason, obvious or otherwise.

When there already exists a Girl Scouts organization, there is zero reason to change the Boy Scouts organization to allow girls. It just doesn’t make sense.

If the want is to allow girls to learn the same skills boys learn in the Boy Scouts, then change the curriculum of the Girl Scouts to include those skills.

If the want is a group where boys and girls can interact with one another in a relatively safe environment, there’s already plenty of Boys and Girls clubs out there, or god forbid, we make a new one.

Why this is a difficult thing to grasp is beyond me. I will admit, there’s no technical reason the Boy Scouts can’t be changed (as evidenced by the fact that it is changing) but logically it lacks reason.

Look, I respect that you’re self-aware enough to realize, if not that you’re being unreasonable, that you have no real justification behind what you’re arguing here. I admire that you’re brave enough to admit it, too. But you can’t possibly expect me to give a shit about researching and providing any reasons why you are incorrect so that you can haughtily dismiss them since, by your own admission at the very beginning of this discussion, there is absolutely nothing supporting the viewpoint you are currently defending to begin with. To be perfectly honest, even engaging with you as much as I already have is a waste of both of our time.

So I’ll just say this. “But there’s already a Girl Scouts” is a juvenile argument. Consider this: The Girl Scouts were segregated by race from 1912 to 1956 and beyond. Instead of asserting that it was tradition for them to be so, they changed it, because it was racist. It was segregated in the first place in accordance with state and local laws and customs. Instead of asserting that those customs were how things had always been done, and you could always make a new state if you didn’t like it, they changed them, because they were racist.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. I’m sure you consider yourself a rational blogger. If that’s the case, I would ask you to kindly figure out where you’ve left your senses and come back to them. It’s not my responsibility – nor, indeed, within my power – to force you to do so. It’s yours.
