This is an empowered post if I’ve ever seen one! Let’s get down to some common sense business.
I was watching that amazing show called, “American Idol” the other day (that’s right, no shame here), and one of the guys that was auditioning was part of a “Civil War Reenactment” group. You know how American Idol does it. They somewhat were making fun of the kid because he was a bit off and nerdy or strange and the father was a “hippie” but definitely NOT a hippie because hippies have conflicting beliefs with the Civil War guys, etc. etc. etc.
So as I was watching this I said out loud. “Why is this so accepted and ok enough to make fun of it as if it’s just a harmless nerd trend?”
That led to my next point.
IF WE ALL DRESSED UP LIKE NAZIS AND REENACTED THE HOLOCAUST WOULD PEOPLE LAUGH THAT OFF AS WELL?
So listen. I don’t need a history lesson and the “Heritage Not Hate” motto is so much BS I feel like I need to wash my mouth out with soap right now. I get what people are saying was “really” going on but the fact is that everyone knows the huge under and overtones of what was happening at that same time. We know that the war in Europe was really about taking over the world but killing Jews, Homosexuals, and even Christians is a large part of what was happening and those undertones keep us from celebrating those events and calling the war a simple logical German-Pride movement.
Governor Merkel in Germany helped to get it approved that it is 100% illegal to deny the holocaust, parade Nazi propaganda and all of that.
The reason is because there is a sensitive issue happening and it’s so apparent that a law needed to be put into place to help ignorant people acknowledge that.
I’m not saying we need a law in place but we need people to stand up and talk about the ridiculousness of allowing a community of abusive slave-owners to “RISE UP AGAIN.” If a community existed that treated other human-beings like that that community has lost its “inalienable right” to exist and govern as a community. They obviously do not understand the value of life, the respect for humans, and the dignity that people deserve.
So here’s your apple to bite in to. REGARDLESS of your opinion on gays, homosexuals, or sexual preference people (whichever terminology fits best or you agree with… getting that right is like asking an ‘African-American’ whether he prefers being called, ‘Black’ or anything else I think. If you have a preference for any of the ‘terms’ or you don’t want to be boxed in by terms, let me know!) YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO HIT, BEAT, SLANDER, ABUSE, MAKE FUN OF, ETC. them. In the same way, we’ve got to have at least a minimal amount of sensitivity to everyone.
THERE’S MY HIPPIE SLANT, YOU CIVIL WAR JOKER!
Unity and Peace, right? A little Rastafarian Reggae for you too!
This one is short and sweet and to the point.
That’s all she wrote for now. Light a candle, sing Kumbaya, and tell someone you love them tonight… De-LY-LAAA
