Jon Stewart Goes After Fox in Powerful Ferguson Monologue
I been waiting for the daily show to come back so they could cover this
Jon rip them boys a new asshole
See, Jon Stewart usually does a lot of satirical humour, but at this point, the writers are just like “fuck the comedy this shit is real” and I was so happy to see that they finally covered this, and it was really well done.
"You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it." ~Jon Stewart.
Seriously, watch this video, bless this video, it’s amazing, but I think my favorite parts are when he hears other reports on Ferguson and can’t even get his comment out because he’s so disgusted at what they’re saying. ”They’re playing the race card.” “Racists are the ones who bring up race.” Seriously, just… really?
What’s even better is that he knows that he’ll never understand how it feels, but its not about understanding, its about human decency and showing respect and knowing that this shit happens. Honestly, you don’t have to try and understand my black experience, but at least acknowledge that my experience is different and that there are people who will crap all over it because of my skin color. No one is playing any sort of card, stop living in this bubble racism is very real and people get killed over it. Stop comparing your experience to someone else’s, because it’ll never be the same.
"You plagiarized a sentence in an essay? Expelled & we’ll make it hard for you to enroll into another school ever again."
"You raped and assaulted a student on campus? You can come back to school."
fuck the education system
I will never NOT reblog this.

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]
People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.
People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine’s not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wears a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor to the Time War, but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.
Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.
He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.
Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.
Nine was the Doctor who took a renegade Time Agent who thought of nothing but himself and making money and nearly cause ‘Volcano Day’ because he wanted to make a fast buck — and turned him into a man who was ready to lay down his life in order to give Nine and Rose those few extra minutes.
Nine was the Doctor who truly made Jack Harkness the man we saw throughout his few Who appearances and Torchwood.
Nine was the Doctor Jack fell in love with and never truly got over. I’ve said a few times that I want to see Jack back in Doctor Who. Now? I’m not so sure. Or, maybe, Jack reappearing in the Who-canon is what we need. They don’t need the Impossible Girl to bring Twelve back to who he is. To make him remember. To help him not be scared.
What Twelve needs is the Face of Boe. The Man out of Time.
Captain Jack Harkness.YES TO ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Having a pet is so weird. Like neither of you speak each other’s language and yet you form some strong bond by rubbing against each other and sleeping together and you might accidentally kick them in the face or step on their tail once in a while but at the end of the day you two are best buddies from entirely different species.
‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.”
Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.
Never thought of it like that. Makes sense.
