*cues terrorist threats*
Jesus fucking christ this is more striking than the pic of edward throwing the tear gas canister im in shock. This is so important
it’s become cliche to say “this is what the media doesn’t want you to see” in regards to anything that may stir up the status quo, but in this case, more than anything else to come out of this, that statement is absolutely true
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.
As a long-time activist, I can attest to the fact that “clashes with police” is media code for police violence.
@RussellWebster: Now they just say “Support ‘our’ police” and everyone knows what they mean. http://t.co/b10zWkXDll

Thanks to an awesome visionary known only as the GIGABEETLE, we’re learning that, when he isn’t busy battling Kaiju, Godzilla has a very active social life. There’s cosplay and gaming and dancing and coloring and exercising and so much more.
