"I have been thinking a lot about stupidity lately, largely, I suppose, because I spend a good deal of time online. I define stupidity as “remediable but unremedied ignorance,” and few human traits are more evident to a reader of your average website. It is relatively easy to discover that Barack Obama is not a Muslim; that the government of Israel was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks; that the Christian God does not hate fags; that your average everyday evangelical Christian is not simply itching for his chance to take over the government and impose theocratic law upon a nation of vile unbelieving reprobates. Yet people who could remedy their ignorance on these and many other matters consistently fail to do so. This is curious and significant."

"As long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets and financial speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems or, for that matter, to any problems." - Pope Francis

Right Wing religion based on protecting the wealthy first, and then not much else. The richest person in their congregation is the holiest. Seems easy when you omit everything Jesus ever said.

Submission from @emc20 who says:

Just wanted to make sure you were aware that MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell did a great piece on Market Basket last night (8/28/14)! It can be found under www.msnbc.com/the-last-word, under The Rewrite (on the left), appropriately entitled “See you at Mahket Bahsket.” Lots of clips from Artie T’s speech and just a really great summation of the whole ordeal. Hope you enjoy! —A fellow Market Basket fan.
Thanks for the tip!
"‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space."

Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.

If the only time you talk about male rape survivors is when you are interrupting women and non-binary people talking about sexual assault statistics and their own experiences, don’t pretend you give a shit about male rape survivors.

Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices
