I’m so sick of the language used by the media, by officials, by civilians every time a tragedy happens. The attitudes that we adopt are disgusting and beyond hypocritical. Once someone so much as mentions that something about the official story doesn’t make sense, or doesn’t sound right, everyone freaks out and yells “anti-american”. I’m so sick of it. What makes our lives more valuable than anybody else’s? I’m not saying that it’s ever justified to take away a life, especially a civilian’s. But why is it terrorism in our streets yet war is perfectly acceptable? Why is it okay to kill innocent civilians overseas with every drone? Why don’t we call it what it is?
I can’t even read a news story on the New York Times because the first thing they will make sure to highlight and bold is “MUSLIMS, ISLAM, TERRORISTS”. Like, shut the fuck up. I’m so sick of all the bullshit. The stupidest part is that you’d think people would already see through the damn propaganda, instead they buy right into it with no sense of reason, or logic, and god forbid thinking for themselves.
This was a total rant.
