Going to a Movie themed party this Purim. Still no outfit aaand no ideas! 😫😱
Lovely followers: Any ideas? Good ones will be rewarded!;)
Do any of you guys know about any reading, online or otherwise that could help me in this period of Ba’alat Teshuva? I’m realizing I don’t know nearly enough about davening and the brachot. I know I should see a Rabbi, but the nearest one is about a half hour away and I’d…
Also, theres always the Shacharis Siddur with Chassidus commentary, which is absolutely amazing. Like, its astoundingly cool and easy to understand and just beautiful.
But theres also the My Prayer series (I say series but there are only two books) and theyre kinda dry but very informative. Ill put the links below if you want?
Also, theres the online Siddur on chabad.org which might be good to look at. Heck, chabad.org in general is a great resource.
When I was 10 years old, my family and I were taken to Auschwitz. My twin sister Miriam and I were separated from my mother, father, and two older sis…
Q: Have you ever been confronted by any holocaust-deniers? How did you handle the experience/people?
A: Yes, I have been confronted by deniers, revisionists, and I have one simple response for them: I know I had a mother and father, and I never saw them again after Auschwitz, nor my older sisters. So if you know so much, tell me what happened to my family. If my story isn’t true, I guess you will agree with me and will repeat after me, that you want your family to have the same destiny as mine did. If you don’t believe my story about how my family ended up, I want you to say out loud that you wish the same thing for my family that happened to your family. And they are usually silent.
That is probably the best response to Holocaust deniers…
Neo-Nazis were also pioneering a strategy they called “ghost skins,” which are attempts by right-wing extremists to keep quiet about their hateful views so as to blend into society and covertly advance their causes. “One white supremacist group has reportedly encouraged ghost skins to seek positions in law enforcement for the capability of alerting skinhead crews of pending investigative action against them,” says the report.
Another report released the same month revealed more about what it calls this “fascist path of stealth.” A ghost skin deliberately avoids shaving his head, wearing boots or braces, or anything that identifies his Nazi origins. “We strive to blend into society to be unrecognizable to the Jewish enemy,” one white-supremacist website is helpfully quoted as explaining. Prospective ghost skins are encouraged to join the military and receive training that can be passed on to other Nazis.
they also join the work force. live in the suburbs and generally do their best to make life hard for people that they hate. Imagine this person works in HR. Imagine they work in healthcare. Imagine they are a social worker.
Another reason why people who joke about being Nazis or WS in order to be edgy are making life harder for targeted people. If you think it’s funny to be confused for a Nazi, you are worthless scum.
so basically white supremacists encourage each other to gain positions of power where they can abuse, murder, and torture non-Aryans. why are people so surprised that legislative groups like the American Legislative Exchange Council (responsible for stand your ground laws, immigration laws like SB 1070, and the expansion of the private prison/immigration detention industrial complex) have connections to explicit white supremacists??
We need to seriously start looking into shit like this, something this revealing of those who say they’re here to serve and protect ought to be in the million + notes cause it would explain why so many white cops are so trigger happy and ready to maim people of color.
A perfect example of why white supremacists benefit from an aura of doubt. They’re intentionally playing off some invasion of the bodysnatchers type shit because they know that people are skeptical about just how widespread white supremacist ideals have become.
basically my entire tumbling the past week
i luv kids they are so much funner to talk to than adults. i asked a toddler today whats up and he said “ten” with such conviction i really did believe it was an adequate response to my question for a second
i’m going to find the person who invented the skirt slit and kick them in the shins. then i’ll find the loser who thought of the mesh back/mesh arms for long sleeved floor length dresses and kick them in the shins. after that i’ll beat up the dweeb who thought of high low skirts….
