Fucked up how virtually every discussion regarding refugees & migrants on the net nowadays is always flooded with racist & xenophobic statements, ignoring that cultures change & that they're pushing a pure assimilationist mindset. What is even more fucked up is that they always have the most likes. They certainly have the right to keep their culture, but certainly adopt some liberal democratic values. Enough with the blanket statements declaring that "There is an Islamic invasion of Europe" & "Muslims don't want to integrate", or even other statements implying that they're part of a hive-mind meant to destroy Europe or something like that. It's right wing propaganda & funny how it's only against brown & black people, not other whites or yellow people. "Culture" is merely a dog whistle for "Race" by white supremacists & anti refugee fear mongers. The answer is exposure, education & interaction. Over time, African, Middle Eastern & Roma cultures will evolve, as they get more exposure to Western European cultures. Allow them to speak their language amongst themselves or even @ social services & take some time to learn their languages. Too many people whether it be in Muslim countries or Western Europe are blinded by tribalism & are too scared to expose each other cultures to the positives of different cultures. Cultures need to start having more sex, & we'll produce far better cultures, as well as helping these cultures to evolve.

In wave of the bigoted comments, espousing of conspiracy theories regarding immigration & George Soros & their typical tropes about brown & black people, here are a few good comments which I found:

"Jutta Schauenberg: Integration to me means acceptance of the rules and cultural traditions in the way of knowing and tolerating them.
Assimilation means to deny your own culture and heritage and fully become someone else.
Integration (language, rule of law ect.) Yes, assimilation No.
However, integration can only work if we all get involved with each other and start interacting. As long as we leave refugees/immigrants to their own kind, refuse them as beighbours or friends - how should they get to know our language and/or culture? Just from books will not work... so Go out and talk to those refugees, invite them for a tea and let them tell their story and tell them yours. Invite them for diner and cook a traditional dish (consider food rules an allergy - you wouldn't cook fish if you know your guest has an allergy, so avoid pork for Muslims cause they literally react since they are not used to it, even if they try). Help them with administrational stuff that's difficult for them just due to language issues. Invite the kids at Easter to search eggs (just for the fun of it). And enjoy some good foreign food if invited .
Integration only works with us - no state can integrate without its people.
And always remember, integration is not assimilation 😀"

"Henning Fischer: With education in all directions.
Educating them to help them to become partners in society and become true consumers (the core of our economy).
Educating us to be more open-minded, free of fear against all foreign stuff and less prejudice. By teaching us that integration is not a one-way route, but a task we can only accomplish together."

Even talk about "Accepting our values" sounds way too much like advocating assimilation, simply due to treating your country like your property & that you're inherently superior due to your culture. Sorry, but this is not the U.S.S.R where everyone had to become Russified & Communist or fuck off.

History Repeating

Seizure of control (1931–1933)[edit]

On 10 March 1931, with street violence between the Rotfront and SA spiraling out of control, breaking all previous barriers and expectations, Prussia re-enacted its ban on brown shirts. Days after the ban SA-men shot dead two communists in a street fight, which led to a ban being placed on the public speaking of Goebbels, who sidestepped the prohibition by recording speeches and playing them to an audience in his absence.

When Hitler's citizenship became discussion in 1924 he had a public declaration printed on 16 October 1924: "The loss of my Austrian citizenship is not painful to me, as I never felt as an Austrian citizen but always as a German only . . . . It was this mentality that made me draw the ultimate conclusion and do military service in the German Army."[52] Hitler formally renounced his Austrian citizenship on 7 April 1925, but did not acquire German citizenship until almost seven years later; thereby allowing him to run for public office. For almost seven years he was stateless, unable to run for public office, and facing the risk of deportation.[53]

Ernst Röhm, in charge of the SA, put Count Micah von Helldorff, a convicted murderer and vehement anti-Semite, in charge of the Berlin SA. The deaths mounted, with many more on the Rotfront side, and by the end of 1931 the SA had suffered 47 deaths, and the Rotfront recorded losses of approximately 80. Street fights and beer hall battles resulting in deaths occurred throughout February and April 1932, all against the backdrop of Adolf Hitler's competition in the presidential election which pitted him against the monumentally popular Hindenburg. In the first round on 13 March, Hitler had polled over 11 million votes but was still behind Hindenburg. The second and final round took place on 10 April: Hitler (36.8% 13,418,547) lost out to Paul von Hindenburg (53.0% 19,359,983) whilst KPD candidate Thälmann gained a meagre percentage of the vote (10.2% 3,706,759). At this time, the Nazi Party had just over 800,000 card-carrying members.

Three days after the presidential elections, the German government banned the NSDAP paramilitaries, the SA and the SS, on the basis of the Emergency Decree for the Preservation of State Authority.[54][55] This action was largely prompted by details that emerged at a trial of SA men for assaulting unarmed Jews in Berlin. After less than a month the law was repealed by Franz von Papen, Chancellor of Germany, on 30 May. Such ambivalence about the fate of Jews was supported by the culture of anti-Semitism that pervaded the German public at the time.

Dwarfed by Hitler's electoral gains, the KPD turned away from legal means and increasingly towards violence. One resulting battle in Silesia resulted in the army being dispatched, each shot sending Germany further into a potential all-out civil war. By this time both sides marched into each other's strongholds hoping to spark rivalry. Hermann Göring, as speaker of the Reichstag, asked the Papen government to prosecute shooters. Laws were then passed which made political violence a capital crime.

The attacks continued, and reached fever pitch when SA storm leader Axel Schaffeld was assassinated. At the end of July 1932, the Nazi Party gained 13,745,000 votes (37.3%), securing 230 out of 608 seats in the Reichstag. Energised by the incredible results, Hitler asked to be made Chancellor. Papen offered the position of Vice Chancellor, but Hitler refused.

Hermann Göring, in his position of Reichstag president, asked that decisive measures be taken by the government over the spate in murders of national socialists. On 9 August, amendments were made to the Reichstrafgesetzbuch statute on 'acts of political violence', increasing the penalty to 'lifetime imprisonment, 20 years hard labour or death'. Special courts were announced to try such offences. When in power less than half a year later, Hitler would use this legislation against his opponents with devastating effect.

The law was applied almost immediately, but did not bring the perpetrators behind the recent massacres to trial as expected. Instead, five SA men who were alleged to have murdered a KPD member in Potempa (Upper Silesia) were tried. Hitler appeared at the trial as a defence witness, but on 22 August the five were convicted and sentenced to death. On appeal, this sentence was commuted to life imprisonment in early September. They would serve just over four months before Hitler freed all imprisoned Nazis in a 1933 amnesty.

The Nazi Party lost 35 seats in the November 1932 election, but remained the Reichstag's largest party, with 196 seats (33.09%). The Social Democrats (SPD) won 121 seats (20.43%) and the Communists (KPD) won 100 (16.86%).

The Comintern described all moderate left-wing parties as "social fascists", and urged the Communists to devote their energies to the destruction of the moderate left. As a result, the KPD, following orders from Moscow, rejected overtures from the Social Democrats to form a political alliance against the NSDAP.

After Chancellor Papen left office, he secretly told Hitler that he still held considerable sway with President Hindenburg and that he would make Hitler chancellor as long as he, Papen, could be the vice chancellor. Another notable event was the publication of the Industrielleneingabe, a petition signed by 22 important representatives of industry, finance and agriculture, asking Hindenburg to appoint Hitler as chancellor.

Hindenburg appointed Hitler as Chancellor on 30 January 1933, in a coalition arrangement between the Nazis and the Nationalist-Conservatives. Papen was to serve as Vice-Chancellor in a majority conservative Cabinet – still falsely believing that he could "tame" Hitler.[44] Initially, Papen did speak out against some Nazi excesses, and later narrowly escaped death in the Night of the Long Knives, whereafter he ceased to openly criticize the regime.

On 30 January 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed chancellor of a coalition government of the NSDAP-DNVP Party. The SA and SS led torchlight parades throughout Berlin. In the coalition government, three members of the cabinet were Nazis: Hitler, Wilhelm Frick (Minister of the Interior) and Hermann Göring (Minister Without Portfolio).

Both within Germany and abroad initially there were few fears that Hitler could use his position to establish his later dictatorial single-party regime. Rather, the conservatives that helped making him chancellor were convinced that they could control Hitler and "tame" the Nazi Party while setting the relevant impulses in the government themselves; foreign ambassadors played down worries by emphasizing that Hitler was "mediocre" if not a bad copy of Mussolini; even SPD politician Kurt Schumacher trivialized Hitler as a "Dekorationsstück" ("piece of scenery/decoration") of the new government. German newspapers wrote that, without doubt, the Hitler-led government would try to fight its political enemies (the left wing parties), but that it would be impossible to establish a dictatorship in Germany because there was "a barrier, over which violence cannot proceed" and because of the German nation being proud of "the freedom of speech and thought". Theodor Wolff of Frankfurter Zeitung wrote:[56]

It is a hopeless misjudgement to think that one could force a dictatorial regime upon the German nation. [...] The diversity of the German people calls for democracy.

— Theodor Wolff in Frankfurter Zeitung, Jan 1933
Even within the Jewish German community, in spite of Hitler not hiding his ardent antisemitism, the worries appear to have been limited. In a declaration of January 30, the steering committee of the central Jewish German organization (Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens) wrote that "as a matter of course" the Jewish community faces the new government "with the largest mistrust", but at the same they were convinced that "nobody would dare to touch [their] constitutional rights". The Jewish German newspaper Jüdische Rundschau wrote on Jan 31st:[57]

... that also within the German nation still the forces are active that would turn against a barbarian anti-Jewish policy.

— Jüdische Rundschau, Jan 31st, 1933
However a growing number of keen observers, like Sir Horace Rumbold, British Ambassador in Berlin, began to revise their opinions. On 22 February 1933, he wrote, "Hitler may be no statesman but he is an uncommonly clever and audacious demagogue and fully alive to every popular instinct," and he informed the Foreign Office that he had no doubt that the Nazis had "come to stay."[58] On receiving the dispatch Lord Vansittart, Permanent Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, concluded that if Hitler eventually gained the upper hand, "then another European war [was] within measurable distance."[59]

With Germans who opposed Nazism failing to unite against it, Hitler soon moved to consolidate absolute power.

"At the risk of appearing to talk nonsense I tell you that the National Socialist movement will go on for 1,000 years! ... Don't forget how people laughed at me 15 years ago when I declared that one day I would govern Germany. They laugh now, just as foolishly, when I declare that I shall remain in power!"— Adolf Hitler to a British correspondent in Berlin, June 1934[60]

First They Came

First they came for the flag burners, having no flags I held out no fucks.
Then they came for the science, seeing they had no brains, I figured science could hold it's on. At some point they came for the media and I held out the stinky mess and said, "you can have it, I have no use for such a thing"

Then they came for my rights, my privacy, and dignity but I was unaware as they did this in secret. By the time Snowden could tell us, they had came for the whistle blowers and once again it was in secret and darkness. Left within a state of secrets and outrage, I picked up my protest and headed toward the door. There I was met by the police who asked to take it away before someone was hurt, as they told me I'd be better off with a gun instead. Which I passed on by the way knowing that what we say is duly noted these days.

Now they come for the joke, good or bad. But they also took away the apology leaving behind a lust for revenge.

I can see the satire that was in a severed head, of a head of state, that declares the severed head as a reason for discrimination against all the living heads of an entire religion. I can see the satire that was in a severed head of not a father but once again, the head of state, of a state that would deny food, shelter and medicine to the heads of the sons and daughters of the neediest heads belonging to his states people. I can see the satire that was in a severed head of not a father but once again, the head of state, of a state that put the heads of the sons and daughters of billions at risk because of poor quality air from coal, climate change and the severed humanity of a war machine that exists for the profit of few heads as we the taxpayer pay trillions to make this possible. I have to adjust my head because I never knew Kathy could be so deep, and complex in her satire.

A real severed head is the result of invading lands and people that we had no business in invading and we could even avoid the call for heads if we were allowed to use our own heads. Trumps sons either live with their mother far from Trump or spend their time hunting the heads of elephants and eating their dicks to be, silly headed men. Or the sons of Trump think the heads of people belong to suckers as they share in the assheaded deployment of their generations old familial con that they call the "art of the deal".

Kathy Griffin owes us nothing, but I'd like to think she owes me a URL where I can get my own plastic served head of the head of a state, who rules in a state where the acceptance of the ideas and deeds of Mr. Trump, are proof such people have indeed lost their collective heads

You can bully over satire, flag burning and accepting an oligarchy and it's need for vengeance. We see it every day and even try to joke about it, for me it's always been the head of Lobbyists, Bankers, and CEO's on pikes as I have no intent of touching such things being a bit of a germaphobe. Only a fool would think either I or Kathy are capable of such a thing, when beyond the joke is an awareness of what things those in public positions are capable of, which is no laughing matter.

The Last Great American General

When the term Military-Indudstral Complex is used many assume it is a liberal idea and most likely a communist plot. Some ridiculous term invented by radicals that are to lazy to work for wealth and who need handouts and benefits when strong nations require security and strength. The reality is the term and concept is the observation of General Dwight D Eisenhower, a republican who was both an active leader in wartime America and the president. He made the observation in a farewell address as he walked away from power*. What was a warning instead became a prophecy.

The problem with prophecy especially one that is profitable is that history becomes non relevant as does social order because what Eisenhower did not see is the marketing, the growth of the advertising media and the power to change and influence minds as it has been unitized. What Eisenhower did not see was the steady march toward an oligarchy and a congress that was becoming more a branch office of corporations owned by few families. What he did not see was a government that could override the Constitution with acts that are automatically renewed and rubber stamped. A president that was a general and fought the Nazi's could not see a nation of scared police that would kill unarmed citizens and a congress that would fight we the people for the power and benefits of a controlling lobbyist. He did not see the greed and its effects to the extent it would feed the thing he did see, fear and report to the people as was his duty. The reason he did not see these things is there clearly has been those in our system that went to great efforts to hide such things as even his farewell speech has been as moth balled as anything a former president has ever done. The press and media has always had a master and it was never the people.

To say we are lied to is well established, to say we have been betrayed is also well established. My fear is that to say we just do not care and hence are responsible for the American condition and temperament is also well established. As Trump is allowed to spend our money and spend it on a war in which he and his sees only profit and not the death, this is our imagine to the world. Trump lost our remaining allies yesterday as we have become the true unilateral point of global evil; exporting weapons to the most destabilized points of the globe, exporting regime change when we can't even vote for our own government anymore, and as science shows the people of this planet that the reality of modern man is a 6th mass extinction event by his hand and climate change by his hand, Trump exports the farce of American exceptionalism being treated unfairly as he pumps up the coal, the oil and the boardrooms of the military-industral complex. As he pumpes up the war like nature of the Military-Indudstral Complex who requires wars to profit. There can be only one result of such actions.

I do not call the US modern Nazi's lightly... but any country this stupid, this racist and this callous toward the death it is causing for what is nothing more than the greed of a few wealthy families can have no other name.

Enter Great's CoStiCam sounds like a state of the art HD camera, however it's just a campaign that attempts to reverse the negative connotation associated with terms we use to describe groups of people.
Everyday we witness positive individuals who belong to various groups of people. However the words we use to describe these groups of people have negative connotation associated with them. That's why it is up to us to use our CoStiCam to reverse the connotation that promote the negative use of them in movies, television programs, and in everyday life. The idea is to force out negativity with positivity.
This campaign is a small portion of a project in Finland, Europe that is attempting to help end racism, discrimination, and bullying. If you want to know more check the link in the comments section.
Feel free to come join and share with others!
Thank you!
