Some people almost make you wish there was a hell so they could go there. I say "almost" because only a total psychopath would seriously enjoy the thought of human beings burning alive for eternity, right? Right!?

Ugh. At Stan's house a few nights ago Liza and Alex and I were goaded into watching 2 girls 1 cup (well, the first ten seconds of it, anyway) and that was less disturbing. *shudders*

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians." consists of a collection of statements by American leaders that are definitive proof that America is fucking screwed. You wonder why so many Americans you talk to are confident, xenophobic fucking morons? It's because these are the people they get their confidence from, the people they let do their thinking for them.

"[Homosexuals] want to come into churches and disrupt church services and throw blood all around and try to give people AIDS and spit in the face of ministers."

"hate is good" according to Randall Terry - sounds contradictory? Seems way too many people believe it. This is just a selection of the ones that made me go especially OMGWTF.

"They would have us believe that Islam is just as good as Christianity. Christianity was founded by the virgin-born son of God, Jesus Christ. Islam was founded by Muhammad, a demon-possessed pedophile who had 12 wives, the last one of which was a nine-year-old girl."

"Raising your children under Americanism or any other principles other than true Christianity is child abuse."

Judge Roy Moore commits peaceful civil disobedience by refusing to remove the Ten Commandments Monument from the Court. He is considered a Hero. Mayor Gavin Newsom commits peaceful civil disobedience by issuing same-sex marriage licenses. He is considered an Anarchist.

I know plenty of Americans who would be just as horrified by all this as I am. Well, where are they? Why are they not speaking up and getting these people out of their government?

For that matter, why aren't WE standing up and doing something? Australia's government is tagging along with America like a twelve-yearold with an adored big brother, and it seems that the only people who care are the ones who don't know what to do about it!

What, this doesn't matter cos it's happening over THERE, because it's not happening to YOU? Misplaced nationalism is going to be the death of us.

First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one
left to speak up for me.

by Rev. Martin Niemoller, 1945

We are not just citizens of Australia. I repeat, WE ARE NOT CITIZENS OF AUSTRALIA. We are citizens of HUMANITY. We are citizens of the world. Just because the people on this website are in the USA, doesn't mean they aren't our problem. Everything is our problem. Where do you draw the line as to what is not your problem? Most of us draw it at Australia's borders. That's just lazy.

Let's get off our asses and ACCOMPLISH something, people! You know what, I'm fifteen and I've got nothing to do that will influence large amounts of people - but I can bloody well blog it and stand up as someone who cares. How many people out there don't do ANYTHING because they can't do anything improtant? How many people don't even let those who CAN do something know how much support they have? No wonder America's government is a bucketful of xenophobic rednecks, every time someone decides to DO something about it they probably look around and go "Aw shit, everybody that's not against me doesn't give a fuck. Whatever, i'm gonna go drink some coffee now." You know what, someone probably has a similar website about Australia's leadership morons. If you're going to be nationalistic you may as well do it properly and help sort out the problems where you live. How do we manage to view such atrocities and then go home and eat dinner and do our homework and chat to our friends about how annoying our family is, and just IGNORE this?

So, when you look at that website, don't just sit there and stare in disbelief. Write down what you feel about it, and make people see it. It doesn't matter if you're not good at it. At least it's there. It doesn't matter where you put it. Put it in your blog, like me, or send it to rove, or the Sun Herald, or Sixty freaking Minutes. Send it to Readers Digest! Post it on forums! Send forwards! Let people know that you're pissed off and they should be too! Maybe you can't make a difference. but if you contribute even a little bit to the cause of someone who CAN make a difference, you've done something worthwhile.

Resistance is not futile. Silence is.
