Can I have some money?

I can’t tell you what it’s for

umph

we teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are

Beyonce

what like hyper-aggressive and predatory?

Beyonce is praised for ‘owning’ her sexuality while simultaneously allowing billions of people to exploit it.

Beyonce is a FAKE Feminist.

there, i said it.  Don’t go defining feminism for your MTV crowd right between the bit with the stripper poles and the song that goes “bow down bitches”…and yes, I watched the VMAs last night fuck you.

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.

They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.

To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.

And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.

So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.

Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:

Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds.[5] Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My BondRoger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.

That is what this gifset is about.

You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.

Rosh Hashanah 2014 will mark 80 years since Jewish baseball player Hank Greenberg slugged two home runs during a game that he and his Detroit Tiger teammates were playing on Rosh Hashanah in 1934. The Tigers would go on to finish the season 101-53, winning the American League pennant, but falling in the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals. He was the first major league player to hit 25 or more home runs in a season in each league, and remains the American League (AL) record-holder for most RBIs in a single season by a right-handed batter.

A New York native and the son of Romanian immigrants, Greenberg spoke with his rabbi, and compromised by playing baseball on the New Year, but sat out of games that were played on Yom Kippur. The Hall of Famer was famous for saying that “every time he hit a home run, it was as if he was personally hitting Hitler.” At the height of his career, Greenberg went on to honor and represent his country by enlisting in the Air Force during World War II from 1941-1945. Besides Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodger pitching ace Sandy Koufax, Hank Greenberg is probably the most successful and important Jewish Athlete that History has yet to produce!

Leon Klinghoffer was a disabled American from nyc who was on a cruise with his wife when terrorists hijacked the ship. Leon was in a wheelchair and when the Palestinian terrorists found out he was Jewish they shot him and pushed him overboard. 
Next month The Metropolitan Opera is playing “Death of Klinghoffer” a show that glorifies the terrorists and tries to find their “humanity through art” . 
The Opera is no place for anti-Semitic propaganda masquerading as art. Please help me tell that to the general manager of the met by emailing him here: pgelb@metopera.org
