Anonymous asked: critisism of israel is racist and anti-semitic. you are an anti-semite

You have no idea who you’re talking to, so listen here, friend: I’m smarter than you, and I know more than you. You could devote the rest of your life to the pursuit of knowledge, and my current intellectual capacity still far exceeds anything you could possibly hope to accomplish. So don’t you come to my page, too lazy to properly utilize the English language, too ignorant to craft a thoughtful counter argument, too weak to include your identity with your remarks, and accuse me of racism and Antisemitism because I have the wherewithal to recognize genocide and oppression when I see it. 

What Israel is doing to the soveriegn nation of Palestine is nothing short of what Germany did under the leadership of Adolf Hitler. I don’t give a shit if a country is Christian, Muslim, or Buddhist - genocide and oppression is genocide and oppression is genocide and oppression, plain and simple.

So go fuck yourself you ignorant, Zionist, piece of shit. 

In this surreal, upside-down vision of the world, it almost seems as if it is the Israelis who are occupied by the Palestinians, and not the other way around. In this skewed universe, the inmates of an open-air prison are besieging a nuclear-armed power with one of the most sophisticated militaries in the world.

Holy crap, a mainstream, American publication wrote an honest article about the genocide in Gaza.

At this point in my job hunting I’m hoping the Third World War breaks out or the economy collapses. At least then I won’t feel like such a useless, unemployable piece of shit.

What kind of incompetent farmer leaves his or her herd out in a storm? Or stands around like a doofus taking pictures when he or she should be getting them into the barn?
And don’t tell me it’s because of a “freak storm”. Farmers keep close watch on the weather to prevent crop damage and herd injuries.  
This is nothing short of neglect, negligence, and incompetence. Cute my ass.

I’ve received a few messages over the course of time that are quite disparaging towards my ex, and I would like to address this. 

I’ve tried to be very careful about how I portray what happened between us because I don’t want anyone having the wrong idea, but if at any time I made it seem like this she was mean, or cruel, or heartless this was an error in communication on my part because nothing is further from the truth. She is an angel, a golden-hearted, gentle soul, peach of a person. She treated me excessively well, made me happy beyond imagination. At times I have written out of anger, and this is a terrible emotion through which to express oneself, but I am strained to imagine I could have said anything to prompt the kind of messages I’ve received. 

I know the people who have sent them meant to express solidarity, but in doing so they only served to cause me great anger. Perhaps they ignored the fact that I have routinely said I still love her and care about her a great deal.

So no more messages like that, please. In fact, no more messages regarding my former relationship at all. If I happen to write a poem, or a post regarding such it is not an invitation for public comment or query, or a solicitation for advice.
