And recently...I've seen a few of people watching "Schindler's List" for the first time. I started out watching one or two that happened to come up in my youtube feed...but then I started watching some more because...there was something that really 'disturbed' me about their reactions to this movie.
Ummmm...I don't know what they are teaching children in schools these days...but I feel a bit outraged by this. The people watching this movie were so SHOCKED and HORRIFIED and like, "WHY??? Omigod!!! This is so brutal!!!"
And I'm just thinking..."What did you think the HOLOCAUST was???" Yes! It was fucking disgusting and brutal and this really happened to people! Are they not teaching this anymore to children in schools? The Holocaust, Slavery, the Native American Trail of Tears, the nuclear bombing of Japan...these are recognized as some of the most evil and heartless atrocities that mankind has ever brought upon this Earth! I haven't been in Junior High or High School in a long time...but is this not being taught anymore?
"You mean the holocaust was BAD?"
What the...??? YES, it was 'bad'! WTF??? There are people living right NOW that still have to recover from the nightmares of that horror. How do people not know about this?
It makes me wonder what 9/11 will look like to children in schools 20 years from now.
We hold on to history to correct and not repeat our mistakes. So we don't follow demagogues and commit crimes against humanity that are just as bad or worse. What the actual fuck are they teaching kids these days? And why?
Do you know that there was recently a push to make everyone call SLAVES in America 'African immigrants'? WTF???? Immigrants??? They were STOLEN! Kidnapped! Beaten, brutalized, sold, raped, and murdered! They weren't immigrants. Don't change the name to soften the blow of what this country has done. Do you want to know the difference?
THESE are African Immigrants...
And THIS was fucking SLAVERY!!!
Gee...do you see a difference? When you're riding around with your Confederate flags and your MAGA hats...this is what you're glorifying. This is what you want to return to. And now you're afraid to tell your children the truth about it all because you're all a bunch of fucking COWARDS! Don't any of you DARE try to cover up the horrors of this world for 'comfort's' sake! This shit really happened to people! And it was so senseless! And we need to see that and be aware of it so we can be better as people moving forward. So LOOK at it! And be ashamed! We all SHOULD be ashamed! Maybe it'll help the world develop some sort of fucking CONSCIENCE for a change!!!
You know...it's funny...when there were ACTUAL Nazis and KKK members marching through Charlottesville with fucking Tiki Torches and screaming about violence nobody had anything to say about that! Know who these people are. Know what these people did. To men, women, children. Learn about it. And be ashamed so you can rise above it and not take part in this horror or the unfathomable horrors to come. Don't let propaganda steal your empathy away from you. You're free to think for yourself.
Sorry....this just...it pisses me off. All of those people...MILLIONS of people...didn't suffer, struggle, and fucking DIE, so you could forget about them and not appreciate the sacrifices they made for you to even be alive right now. That's not right.
In your heart of hearts...you KNOW that's not right!
Maybe this is why some ignorant assholes want to pretend to be Rosa Parks, Che Guevara, Gandhi, or wear a Jewish star on their arm, every time somebody asks them to get vaccinated or wear a mask at their local Starbucks to bu their overpriced coffee treat for the day! They have no fucking IDEA what it's like to be persecuted this way! COWARDS! It makes me sick to my stomach that people think they can compare their minor inconveniences to the suffering of innocent people who have been through much much worse.
Enjoy your life! If you're reading this right now, that means you have a roof over your head, electricity, a cell phone, a wifi connection for internet access, and a lot more! You've got it WAY better than most! So take a break from your victim complex and appreciate what you've got right now. K? Your life is a paradise to somebody who has nothing.
Sorry, just...I had to vent for a little bit. The world has gotten so sick lately, and I just want it to get better. You know?
