I hate doing controversial posts. But sometimes you just have to stand up and say are you kidding me?
Currently social media is starting to look like what it probably would have at the start of WWII. And we can stop it. We can use our voices to say… No that isn’t accurate and I don’t agree.
We often ask ourselves HOW can a whole country be conned into exterminating an entire race of people? The answer. We give fear a face to fight. We generalize it and then we label it.
We can stop it. We can stop generalizing and start specifying. We don’t do the world any favors when we use Meme’s to spread hateful and generic labels.
Anonymous: I don’t care because it that simple. If you stand with those will to harm my family then you would not be standing very long.
Me: “I don’t care” is really all it boils down to. I have a family too and it’s for them I see past simplistic viewpoints that keep us from being better people and try to sort out the complexity to find solutions.
Anonymous: There is a solution take the fight
Me: Fight the right people. Your meme suggests if the Westboro Baptist Church started blowing people up then ALL Christians are fair game. Sorry but….NO
Anonymous: The solution is to take the fight to them, quit playing with them, and turn that shit hole to glass.
Anonymous: And what I don’t care about is how offended you or anybody else gets about what is say, or do. People afraid of offending someone is one of the problems. Stop being offended and do something!! Say something! Or sit there and be offended like a spoiled child..
Me: I’m glad it’s so simple for you. I want those asshats as bad as you do I’m just not willing to kill innocent people to do it. Let’s hope you’re not one of the innocent someone decides to turn to glass someday.
Me: You do care or you wouldn’t be here trying to state your shallow minded case. YOU do something about it other than spread hate. How about that?
Anonymous: If so then it was meant to be. But I won’t run from a fight like a scared little bitch claiming it’s against my religion to fight so I am going to come and not fight for this country either.
Anonymous: I wasn’t calling you a spoiled child.
Anonymous: And not towards you.
Me: I’m all for fighting. BUT labeling a whole race of people because of fear and destroying them is not the right way. I feel like I’m watching what SM would look like during WWII.
Anonymous: No the meme is pretty right on, if they choose to hide terrorist amongst them then they are fair game. If they say hey this guy is not who he says. Then yes, he is not fair game. But many choose to hide them for whatever reason. That’s is the rub. The ultimate question really. To rat or not.
Me: Imagine living there? You are dead by the bad guy or by foreign govt. A no win situation. They know their immediate threat is within. Thank God for the truly brave men and women who care enough to weed the bad from good and risk their lives undercover for all of us. We as a world need to stand against these extremists. We owe the innocent people they have taken hostage the humanity of doing so.
You don’t have to agree with me to see the harm labels can do. History proves this truth time and again. I also know it takes a LOT to make positive changes and to keep the world a safe place to live free. The problem is there are SO many problems.
So many problems can be solved if we just took the first step to CARE. And then you have to CARE ENOUGH. You want to deny Syrians entrance based on the idea we can’t even take care of our own??? You are right we do a shitty job. We have a lot to fix. We have a LOT to care about.
So stop spreading GENERIC MEMES and start caring enough to specificy what the real issue is and then maybe… we can have a useful conversation.
Extremist’s win if you let them scare you into hurting those who need you
