“you can't make homes out of human beings / someone should have already told you that”
—Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment (via liquidnight)
once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it
loaded language and media bias
it’s even worse if you watch the 24hr coverage. CNn has literally been referring to the situation as “uprisings”. Uprisings, like we’re talking about the fucking districts rising against the capitol or some such shit.

ToI have taken down the post since, but this site is now hostng it so we can all bear witness. Please destroy the fact that these ideas are held by ‘extremists’ or the right wing in Israel. The goal of the settler colonial project is annihilation of the native population. Stay woke to these gems of honest articulations when you can get them!
