“All left-wing parties in the highly industrialized countries are at bottom a sham, because they make it their business to fight against something which they do not really wish to destroy….We all live by robbing Asiatic coolies, and those of us who are “enlightened” all maintain that those coolies ought to be set free; but our standard of living, and thus our “enlightenment”, demand that the robbery continue. A humanitarian is always a hypocrite.”—George Orwell is a boss. Replace “coolies” with “third world residents” and it still applies.
How would a typical social justice activist feel about the below conflicts?
Poor black middleschool kids taunting an Asian immigrant schoolbus driver for having an accent
Wealthy Asian people belittling “white trash”
A Christian male black manager who hates premarital sex and gay people having a white, female subordinate who has had both casual sex and same-sex experimentation
Gay men who are misogynistic
It’s like, people on this site (and liberals everywhere) think that there’s a clear Victim vs Oppressor dichotomy. Shit gets much, much more confusing in real life and people who you think should have a “We’re all in this together” attitude clearly don’t.
My boss told me he's a member of Mars Hill Church.
Quick rundown of fucked up things Mars Hill Preaches:
Marriage is for men and women only
Women should be subservient to men, and not have jobs
Women should not have premarital sex
Pornography destroys marriages
Masturbating without a member of the opposite sex present is a form of homosexuality, and thus immoral
So basically, I work for a man who is a member of a congregation that actively shits on my lifestyle every day. This is like a black man finding out his white boss is a Neonazi. Actually, it’s funny, he is black, but the church he’s following only spreads hate along gender and sexuality lines (not racial ones), so I guess it’s all gravy for him. That motherfucker has no taste for irony.
If there was a church in Seattle that preached black people like him were subhuman instead of gays, that place would get burned to the ground immediately. Racism is rightfully deemed unacceptable by our society. But people still act complacent and tolerant about homophobia. Why?
Hear this? The title is “The Show Goes On”. Not “Float On”, even though any artist who wasn’t in the hiphop business would have the decency to call this a cover. Nope, he just dumbs down the lyrics, tweaks the structure ever so slightly, and calls it his own. Fuck you so hard, Lupe Fiasco. May your unprincipled thirst for money be quenched by a thousand throbbing dicks.
Ron felt a rush of adrenaline in his midsection, and his knees went wobbly. He thought of running, but realized that he had no chance of escaping. He felt as though someone else had siezed control of his legs as he walked stiffly to the glass door, opened it, and took a few paces into the middle of the room. The congregation stared at him with obvious confusion and interest, those in the front craning their necks or scooting their plastic chairs around to partially face him. Several of them clutched large foam penises.
“For the next design for ‘Flynn’ is this big guy design, he didn’t have a name. So I called him BEAR!!!FLYNN, because he remind me of those big tough guys who are just like Teddy Bears that you want to hug. Personally, if I have to choose between Bastion or Bear Flynn, I would choose…
What’s the difference between borrowing every issue of Scott Pilgrim from April and torrenting every issue of Scott Pilgrim? Is the primary sin of pirates not having rich(er) friends who will lend them things?
