stop scrolling and fucking read my words and reblog this. i don’t care how you do it but fucking share this right now.
i’m going to type like one of those annoying ass people who bold their words and speak in caps too and i hate those people on here but who the fck cares just listen to me.
ISIS is honing in on the kurdish city of kobane (ayn al-arab in arabic), which is right on the border with turkey. over 400,000 kurds have left their native town out of fear. during this whole time, ISIS has been massacring people who are mostly kurds living in the villages around kobane.
young kurdish men are being BEHEADED in the streets. kurdish yezidi and assyrian women and girls are raped, kidnapped, and sold into sex slavery. NOW OTHER FAMILIES ARE ACTUALLY KILLING THEIR YOUNG DAUGHTERS TO PREVENT THIS. GIRLS AS YOUNG AS 8 OR 12 ARE JUMPING OFF CLIFFS TO AVOID THIS LIFE AND YOU’RE IGNORING THIS.
i’m used to this because no one cares about the kurds. no one cares about the minorities of the middle east. it’s been 130 years of genocides after genocides after massacres after village destruction and internal displacements that i’m immune to this but this is just too much. we have our own protection services but we are working on little to no money and weapons from the early 1990s and 2000s. how are we going to protect ourselves from a terrorist group who has millions of dollars to their name and turkey to protect them?
now turkey has been denying they support ISIS in any way possible but how can they not be supporting them when the foreign defense minister pardoned them of their crimes? how can they not be supporting ISIS when they allow future militants from the US and europe to go through its borders and enter syria via secret border holes that are actually facilitated by the turkish military? and then when they are injured they’re rushed off to turkey where they get intensive hospital care in all the border towns, how is that not support?
my question to you is, when will you care? when, after how many weeks of the topic of ISIS being on the news, did you stop caring? was it the moment you heard “another conflict in the middle east”? or are millions of lives at stake just a grain of sand to you while you try to block it all out to focus on st*pid ass marvel movies or a movie about a goddamn raccoon?
why have i only seen support for us kurds by warmongers and weird conservatives who think a woman who is putting her life on the line to protect her family and country is the definition of feminism even though she has no choice?
THIS IS REAL AND THIS IS SERIOUS.
if thousands of people can rally together to support palestine in the street, in art, in movies, and on the internet, you can do this, too. don’t be a goddamn hypocrite AND SUBSEQUENTLY SUPPORT A GENOCIDE OF ANCIENT PEOPLE, DUDE.
Space Shuttle final approach to Toronto Island. Brakes don’t fail me now!
I think Ms. Rand and my character Oscar the Grouch would have a lot to talk about actually. I am laughing out loud at this idea.
Why would I want to talk to him. What has he achieved or trying to achieve.
He has achieved what I think is the ultimate goal of your way of thinking.
Isolation. Contempt for others. A hard heart. Yet even he can muster a bit of empathy every now and then.
I am not isolated. I have no contempt for others. Millions of people read my books and find my thoughts inspirational. I hardly spend my time on the sidelines in a trash can grumping.
Not yet anyway.
