    Hats don’t save you from death.

    Christianity doesn’t save you from death either. You’re going to die some day. You will not be resurrected and given a new body. Jesus is 2,000+ years late and counting. He’s not coming back for any of you because guess what…Jesus is dead; Christianity couldn’t even save him from death.

    Tulsa OK 1921: US Government Bombs US City


    National Guard troops patrolling the streets armed. Thousands of black people held in a convention center. Hundreds of black dead, with bodies piled like wood. That was not New Orleans, that was Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June 1921.

    On May 30, 1921 a young black man named Dick Rowland, stumbled into a white woman, while entering an elevator. He was accused of assault, and arrested the next day. Newly rich from oil Tulsa, was a Ku Klux Klan town. Rowland was sentenced to be hanged. The Tulsa Tribune called for a “Negro lynching tonight.”

    The white mob was surprised when they were met by several dozen armed black men, dressed in their World War I uniforms. This led to a racist three day destruction of the black neighborhood of Greenwood. The Red Cross reported 300 mostly dead black people.

    Greenwood called “Little Africa,” was a relatively wealthy community. White mobs, many deputized, destroyed every house, store, church or school. The mob met resistance from an armed black population. Governor Robertson declared martial law. The National Guard arrived with machine gun mounted trucks, and airplanes hovering over Greenwood. It was the first time an American city was bombed from the air, by the US government.

    Over 6,000 black people, were round up and held in the convention center and fairgrounds, as long as eight days. The homeless were shuttled into a tent city, where typhoid and malnutrition took over. Blacks were allowed out of the convention center, with a tag, with an employers name. Thosands fled the city.

    Attempts to turn Greenwood into an industrial zone were unsuccessful. For several years, it was deprived of paved streets, running water, and garbage collection.

    You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….

    This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

    And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

    Have a lovely day, sugar. 

    Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

    Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

    Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

    There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

    So! Here we go!

    Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

    And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

    image

    And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

    image

    You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

    These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

    And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

    image

    Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

    image

    Ahem.

    Anti-vaxxers are a danger to the world and we need to stop them tbh

    GODDAMMIT. I AM SICK OF THESE ANTI-VAXXER SHIT GOBLINS.

    VACCINATE THOSE WHO CAN BE VACCINATED TO PROTECT THOSE WHO LEGITIMATELY CANNOT.

    I DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU THINK YOU’RE A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE FLOATING AROUND IN YOUR SPARKLY CLOUD OF YOUR OWN SELF RIGHTEOUS FARTS THAT WILL PROTECT YOU FROM DISEASES LIKE POLIO.

    GET. A. GODDAMN. CLUE. THEN GET VACCINATED. VACCINATE YOUR SPAWN.

    YOUR BATSHIT BELIEFS ARE KILLING PEOPLE.

    In my opinion, refusing to vaccinate a child who can be vaccinated is tantamount to medical neglect. I am 100% done with being nice to anti-vaxxers. We need to bring back exiling people. Andrew Wakefield and Jenny McCarthy are the first to go.

    Welcome to forced injections, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood liberal.

    You’re goddamn right. Nothing says individual freedom like infecting newborns with measles because you’ve got your head jammed so far up your Ayn Rand-hypnotized, objectivist, unvaccinated butthole that vaccinations are suddenly LibertyStompers™ and therefore, causing an epidemic is no big — even though the parents of those too young to be vaccinated, or people who are immunocompromised don’t even get a choice about exposing themselves to harm from your special snowflake irresponsibility.

    So yeah, if it’s Typhoid Mary² or “forced injections,” roll up your sleeve, wankstain.

    Vaccinate your kids or don’t take them out in public or send them to public school.

    Honor Killings of Muslim Women in the West

    Here are some of the faces that the PC media forgets in its defense of “cultural freedom” and “religious freedom” when it comes to Islamic cultural norms existing in the West. 

    These are just a few of the victims of honor killings that are on the rise in the West.  In the undeveloped world, the number of honor killings of Muslim women each year is astronomical. 

    Pictured:

    • Top: Fadime Sahindal, 26-year-old Kurdish resident of Sweden, murdered by her father for resisting an arranged marriage and wanting to marry her boyfriend (2/4/75-21/1/02)
    • Second row, left: Ghazala Khan, 25-year-old Pakistani Danish woman murdered by her family for marrying a Muslim man against their will (1987-23/12/05)
    • Second row, right: Tulay Goren, 15-year-old British citizen drugged, tortured, and murdered by her Turkish father for having a pre-marital relationship (murdered in January 1999)
    • Third row: Noor Almaleki, 20-year-old American citizen murdered by her father by being run over with a vehicle, for resisting arranged marriage and being “too westernized”; her fiance’s mother, Amal Khalaf (not pictured), was also severely injured in the attack (02/89-10/09)
    • Fourth row, left: Sara Said (left, 16/3/90-1/1/08) and Aminah Said (right, 2/3/89-1/1/08) were American girls murdered by their Egyptian father in 2008 for having non-Muslim boyfriends.  He was never captured.  This case was featured on America’s Most Wanted.
    • Fourth row, right: Khatera Siddiqui, 20-year-old Canadian woman, and her fiance, Feroz Mangal, 23-year-old Canadian man, were murdered in 2006 by the woman’s brother because her family did not approve of the relationship.
    • Fifth row, left: Aqsa Parvez, a16-year-old Canadian, was strangled to death by her brother in 2007 for not wearing the hijab (22/4/91-10/12/07)
    • Fifth row, right: Sadia Sheikh, a 20-year-old Belgian woman, was murdered by her Pakistani family for resisting an arranged marriage and leaving home
    • Sixth row, left: Anooshe Sediq Ghulam, a 22-year-old Afghan refugee in Norway, was murdered by her husband (whom she had been forced to marry at the age of 13 in Afghanistan and with whom she had two children) for trying to get a divorce due to domestic abuse. Murdered in 2002.
    • Sixth row, right: Samaira Nazir, a 25-year-old British woman, was murdered by her brother, cousin, and other family members after she refused an arranged marriage and asked to marry a Muslim man of Afghan background, different from her family’s Pakistani background (murdered 23/4/05).

    These are just a few of the MANY victims of honor killings each year, even in the West.  Tumblr only let me add ten pictures to this photoset, but there are many other young girls and women who are brutally abused and murdered every year, not only abroad but also in our own backyards. 

    From Wikipedia: “Every year in the United Kingdom (UK), officials estimate that at least a dozen women are victims of honor killings, almost exclusively withinAsian and Middle Eastern families.[62] Often cases cannot be resolved due to the unwillingness of family, relatives and communities to testify. A 2006 BBC poll for the Asian network in the UK found that one in ten of the 500 young Asians polled said that they could condone the killing of someone who dishonored their family.[63] In the UK, in December 2005, Nazir Afzal, Director, west London, of Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service, stated that the United Kingdom has seen “at least a dozen honour killings” between 2004 and 2005.[64] While precise figures do not exist for the perpetrators’ cultural backgrounds, Diana Nammi of the UK’s Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation is reported to have said: “about two-thirds are Muslim. Yet they can also be Hindu and Sikh.”

    The number of honor killings is on the rise in the US, UK, Canada, and EU.  This must not be tolerated.
