This makes me so happy, and yet so sad.
He was smart, he was a writer (you could tell by his phrasing) and this is something he TRULY cares about. That boy has a heart and he cares. He sees the truth for what it is and he refuses to sit idly and watch as the youth of america just stumbles by.
BUT the teacher was done. She didn’t care. She was fed up.
BUT the students were uncaring, even laughing, as this young man walked out
BUT this video was put online to be deemed as a joke and embarrass that boy.
THAT is unexceptionable
THAT is not right.
If you are this young gentleman if you are his relative, or if you have ever done something similar.
I am so proud of you
To take your opinion and share. NOT ONCE did he threaten her, NOT ONCE did he raise his voice above a proper projection so that the class could hear his words NOT ONCE did he insult her in any means past how she was behaving with her job. He didn’t undermine her. He didn’t hurt her, and yet he gave his message and left in peace.
That makes him a true, undeniable, super hero in my eyes.
Thank you sir.
This is amazing, and it makes me feel like America still has a chance.
Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE.
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl.
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.
As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things.
Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.
That’s the real truth: Human Beings are scarier than any ‘monsters’ out there because we’re all born blank slates and BECOME our legacy.
This is the best post I’ve seen in a while.
Similar to Adolf Eichmann when he was charged for his war crimes. He was one of the major organisers of the Holocaust, ordering deaths of thousands and on his way home he would go into a sweet shop, pick up some chocolate and present it to his children when he got in. The jury and judge said that during his trial, the weirdest thing was that he was completely normal and himself. He wasn’t a raging lunatic clawing at walls, he was just like everyone else.
So homosexuality is a sin but high heeled sneakers aren’t
OH MY GOD APPARENTLY TAKING AN ARROW TO THE KNEE WAS AN OLD NORDIC SLANG FOR GETTING MARRIED
I THOUGHT THAT ALL THOSE GUYS IN SKYRIM HAD LITERALLY BEEN SHOT IN THEIR KNEES WITH ARROWS BUT I GUESS NOT
And at that moment, the foundation of that entire meme became something like this:
THAT EXPLAINS WHY MEN GO DOWN ON ONE KNEE WHEN THEY PROPOSE
OH MY GOD
You know when you see a photograph of someone you know but it’s from years before you met them, and it’s like they’re not quite…finished.
OKAY I NEVER NOTICED THIS BEFORE BUT GOD IT HURTS. THE FIRST GIF IS OF TEN AND RIVER. THIS IS THE PART WHERE HE IS TRYING TO GET HER TO TELL HIM WHO SHE IS. TO HIM. AND RIVER OF COURSE WON’T TELL HIM. BUT SHE STILL WANTS HIM TO TRUST HER AND SUBCONSCIOUSLY SHE REACHES OUT TO HIM, TO STRAIGHTEN HIS BOW TIE, LIKE SHE NORMALLY WOULD. EXCEPT IT’S NOT THERE. BECAUSE THIS IS TEN. AND TEN DOESN’T WEAR BOW TIES. AND I THINK THIS IS THE MOMENT WHEN SHE REALIZES THAT THIS MAN, EVEN THOUGH HE IS THE DOCTOR, IS NOT HER DOCTOR. HER DOCTOR WEARS BOW TIES AND THINKS THEM COOL. HER DOCTOR FLIRTS AND FLAILS AROUND HER. THIS MAN IS FREAKED OUT BY THE MEAR PRESENCE OF HER. WHO SHE IS. WHO SHE COULD BE. AND I THINK THAT TERRIFIES HER.
The moment when you realize a child living in total poverty is more happy than you are. Money truly cannot buy happiness. I am in pursuit of that happiness.
