Apparently my personal blog’s queue has been sent to this one instead? I’m really sorry
"Looting? I thought these were supposed to be nonviolent protests"
I know it’s incredible! People are literally coming out of the woodwork to comment on this photoset to focus on the looting headline with “well yes it is nice they were helping people hit with the tear gas, but stealing is still wrong uwu” as if they’re back to kindergarten morality.
Like everyone who’s gone to boot camp I’ve been tear gassed. They put about 50+ of you in a gas chamber and toss it in. You have to stay there until your rank is allowed to exit. Before that though, you have to say your name, rank, and social security number. You then exit and file into ranks (again) outside and are not allowed at any point to rinse your face or eyes for the entire day.
That right there? Easily the worst part of boot camp. My eyes were literally swollen shut. I was blinded for a good 30 minutes and my chest hurt for days.
I have zero problem and not and ounce of judgement for people raiding a mcdonalds that can easily afford to repair damage for ANYTHING to help ease the shittiness that is being tear gassed. Esp because every one of us in boot were medically sound to deal with tear gas. Children, asthmatics, people prone to panic and anxiety attacks, the elderly as sooo many more are NOT going to handle tear gas well at ALL.
Or that smoke the police use either.
It’s easy to sit there and judge someone from the safety of your home and say things like “it’s just tear gas” or “it can’t be that bad”.
Fuck you. As someone who HAS been gassed, you need to stfu.
Also milk at Mcdonalds costs like what, a dollar and change? chill the fuck out brah
The Ferguson McDonalds and their employees do not give a shit about so called “looting”. They’ve been nothing but welcoming and gracious to protesters.
When I called the McDonald’s the next morning, the first person who answered said the restaurant’s front windows had been broken but that it was open for business. When I asked about looting, he said “Everything’s fine here.”
I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.
Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.
Maternity of death - charcoal on paper
After reading so many news about so many horrible stuff happening in the world, this came out. It’s pretty sketchy and maybe it’s not perfect but it’s what moves me. It was really emotionally draining to paint but it helped somehow to put out my views on the subject.
This goes out for all the mothers whose sons and daughters are being slaughtered, be it by the police, the hateful, the military or tragic diseases. Specially to those Chistian families being persecuted, raped and killed in Iraq.
