Yeah revisionism is sick so stop doing it. FYI Ghandi was a pacifist, he disagreed with almost all acts of violence no matter the reason. But that doesn't mean he thought the Arabs had no reason to be angry. And guess what, not everyone is a pacifist. Sometimes when you kick people off their land and discriminate against them, the response you get is some of them wanting to slit your throat.
I don’t care what YOU WANT to believe, the Palestinian nationalism was in full swing before WWII and they made it quite clear what they were fighting about. Here’s Gandhi’s words as posted by a pro terrorist Muslim. As you can see, they support what I have been saying:
- make a chat system
- give alerts when someone answers your ask
- REMOVE THE FUCKING ‘REBLOG AS A LINK’ THING
- FIX THAT FUCKING TUMBLR VIDEO PLAYER GOD DAMNIT
- search multiple tags at once
- MAYBE HAVE A ‘LIVE VIDEO’ BUTTON OR SOMETHING
- FUCKING REMOVE BLOGS THAT HAVE BEEN INACTIVE FOR 18 MONTHS
- REMOVE BLOGS OF PEOPLE WHO SEND HATE OR VIOLATE THE RULES OF TUMBLR (YEA IM LOOKING AT YOU, 12.9 YEAR OLDS)
- SENT FOLDER SENT FOLDER SENT FOLDER like I’m supposed to remember what I just said
Yahoo SHOULD NOT go nuking blogs. Facebook is for control freaks, one of the charms of Tumblr is that if you were really, really, honestly, truly offended by something someone said they told you to stop reading them.
It’s called “Maturity.”
…and an idle blog is no issue what so ever, as there’s nothing you even need to ignore.
But, yeah, they need to do something about that video function — and I use the word “Function” ironically here as it often does anything BUT.

I’m using the ‘bourgeois - middle class (incorporating both the petty bourgeoisie and rich proletarians) - working class’ model.
You’re taking what would be natural allies to reform and making them enemies. Any model that allows you to do that is a stupid model. You’re placing your dogma — your strict adherence to outmoded ideas — ahead of actually accomplishing something useful.
NOTE: The Soviet Union collapsed before you were born. Your “Kulaks” were not only decades out of date by then, but they demonstrated MY point and the futility of your dogmatic approach. After all, the demonizing of your “Kulaks” and their persecution led directly to a massive famine that killed anywhere from 3 to 8 million going by popular estimates.

“Watch what we do not what we say”
—John Mitchell, Director of Richard Nixon’s 1968 campaign, Nixon’s first Attorney General and one of the (convicted) Watergate conspirators
It’s simple (even common sense) but the best, most reasonable way to ascertain a politician’s (or political party’s) stance on any issue is to merely watch what they do — the results of their actions — and assume that they intended them.
Taking politicians at their word is never a good idea. Not only to they have a powerful incentive to tell you what you want to hear (getting elected), but they often feel the need to insulate themselves from the ever changing winds of public opinion, and to “Stay the course” on an agreed upon plan.
…one common strategy for politicians (especially at a state/local level, but still seen nationally) is to declare/concede/leak one outcome only to legislate the opposite. Why do this? Because they’re killing the opposition.
Think of it this way: They’re going to bulldoze a popular park and say so. This incites angry voters, gets them organized… results in protests… letter campaigns… phone calls, etc. But by claiming to do the opposite they kill all opposition, and then enact the unpopular plan claiming that there was no opposition and, hey, if you were so much against it then where were you BEFORE the law was passed… back when we were only hearing from the supporters of it… darn voters and your constant flip-flopping!
So ignore what politicians say. Pay no attention to their words. Focus in on actions. Look at the results of their actions, assume that’s what they were going for and then work backwards from there.
You can’t go wrong.
