Ku Klux Klan

The Ku Klux Klan (KKK), or simply the Klan, is the name of three distinct movements in the United States that have advocated extremist reactionary currents such as white supremacy, white nationalism, anti-immigration, and, especially in later iterations, Nordicism, anti-Catholicism, and antisemitism. Historically the KKK used terrorism, both physical assault and murder, against groups or individuals whom they opposed. All three movements have called for the “purification” of American society, and all are considered right-wing extremist organizations.

The first Klan flourished in the Southern United States in the late 1860s, then died out by the early 1870s. It sought to overthrow the Republican state governments in the South during the Reconstruction Era, especially by using violence against African American leaders. With numerous chapters across the South, it was suppressed around 1871, through federal law enforcement. Members made their own, often colorful, costumes: robes, masks, and conical hats, designed to be terrifying, and to hide their identities.

The second group was founded in 1915, and it flourished nationwide in the early and mid-1920s, particularly in urban areas of the Midwest and West. It was rooted in local Protestant communities and opposed Catholics and Jews, and stressed its opposition to the Catholic Church at a time of high immigration from mostly Catholic nations of southern and eastern Europe. This second organization adopted a standard white costume and used code words which were similar to those used by the first Klan, while adding cross burnings and mass parades to intimidate others.

The third and current manifestation of the KKK emerged after 1950, in the form of small, local, unconnected groups that use the KKK name. They have focused on opposition to the Civil Rights Movement, often using violence and murder to suppress activists. It is classified as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center. As of 2016, the Anti-Defamation League puts total Klan membership nationwide at around 3,000, while the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) puts it at 6,000 members total.

The second and third incarnations of the Ku Klux Klan made frequent references to America’s “Anglo-Saxon” blood, hearkening back to 19th-century nativism. Although members of the KKK swear to uphold Christian morality, virtually every Christian denomination has officially denounced the KKK.920x920.jpg

The Boogeyman

Bogeyman (usually spelled boogeyman in the U.S.; also spelled bogieman or boogie man; see American and British English spelling differences), pronounced /bʊɡimæn/ or /bɡimæn/, is a common allusion to a mythical creature in many cultures used by adults to frighten children into good behavior. This monster has no specific appearance, and conceptions about it can vary drastically from household to household within the same community; in many cases, he has no set appearance in the mind of an adult or child, but is simply a non-specific embodiment of terror. Parents may tell their children that if they misbehave, the bogeyman will get them. Bogeymen may target a specific mischief—for instance, a bogeyman that punishes children who suck their thumbs—or general misbehaviour, depending on what purpose needs serving. In some cases, the bogeyman is a nickname for the Devil. Bogeyman tales vary by region. The bogeyman is usually a masculine entity, but can be any gender, or simply be androgynous.In many countries, a bogeyman variant is portrayed as a man with a sack on his back who carries naughty children away. This is true for many Latin countries, such as Brazil, Portugal, Spain, and the countries of Spanish America, where he is referred to as el “Hombre del costal”, el “hombre del saco”, or in Portuguese, o “homem do saco” (all of which mean “the sack/bag man”), or el roba-chicos, meaning child-stealer. Similar legends are also very common in Eastern Europe, as well as in Haiti and some countries in Asia.

El Coco (also El Cuco and Cucuy, sometimes called El Bolo) is a monster common to many Spanish-speaking countries.

In Spain, parents will sing lullabies or tell rhymes to children, warning them that if they do not sleep, El Coco will come and get them. The rhyme originated in the 17th century has evolved over the years, but still retains its original meaning. Coconuts (Spanish: coco) received that name because their brownish hairy surface reminded Portuguese explorers of coco, a ghost with a pumpkin head. Latin America also has El Coco, although its folklore is usually quite different, commonly mixed with native beliefs, and, because of cultural contacts, sometimes more related to the boogeyman of the United States. However, the term El Coco is also used in Spanish-speaking Latin American countries, such as Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Peru, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and Venezuela, although there it is more usually called El Cuco, as in Puerto Rico, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina. Among Mexican-Americans, El Cucuy is portrayed as an evil monster that hides under children’s beds at night and kidnaps or eats the child that does not obey his/her parents or go to sleep when it is time to do so. However, the Spanish American bogeyman does not resemble the shapeless or hairy monster of Spain: social sciences professor Manuel Medrano says popular legend describes El cucuy as a small humanoid with glowing red eyes that hides in closets or under the bed. “Some lore has him as a kid who was the victim of violence… and now he’s alive, but he’s not,” Medrano said, citing Xavier Garza’s 2004 book Creepy Creatures and other Cucuys.”

In Brazilian folklore, a similar character called Cuca is depicted as a female humanoid alligator. There’s a famous lullaby sung by most parents to their children that says that the Cuca will come and get them if they do not sleep, just as in Spain. The Cuca is also a character of Monteiro Lobato’s Sítio do Picapau Amarelo, a series of short novels written for children which contain a large number of characters from Brazilian folklore.maxresdefault.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adolf Hitler

 

Adolf Hitler (German: [ˈadɔlf ˈhɪtlɐ]; 20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei; NSDAP), Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer (“Leader”) of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of the German Reich, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was central to the Holocaust.

Hitler was born in Austria, then part of Austria-Hungary, and raised near Linz. He moved to Germany in 1913 and was decorated during his service in the German Army in World War I. He joined the German Workers’ Party (DAP), the precursor of the NSDAP, in 1919 and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923 he attempted a coup in Munich to seize power. The failed coup resulted in Hitler’s imprisonment, during which he dictated the first volume of his autobiography and political manifesto Mein Kampf (“My Struggle”). After his release in 1924, Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promoting Pan-Germanism, anti-semitism, and anti-communism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler frequently denounced international capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewish conspiracy.

By 1933, the Nazi Party was the largest elected party in the German Reichstag, which led to Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor on 30 January 1933. Following fresh elections won by his coalition, the Reichstag passed the Enabling Act, which began the process of transforming the Weimar Republic into Nazi Germany, a one-party dictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology of National Socialism. Hitler aimed to eliminate Jews from Germany and establish a New Order to counter what he saw as the injustice of the post-World War I international order dominated by Britain and France. His first six years in power resulted in rapid economic recovery from the Great Depression, the effective abandonment of restrictions imposed on Germany after World War I, and the annexation of territories that were home to millions of ethnic Germans—actions which gave him significant popular support.

Hitler sought Lebensraum (“living space”) for the German people in Eastern Europe. His aggressive foreign policy is considered to be the primary cause of the outbreak of World War II in Europe. He directed large-scale rearmament and on 1 September 1939 invaded Poland, resulting in British and French declarations of war on Germany. In June 1941, Hitler ordered an invasion of the Soviet Union. By the end of 1941 German forces and the European Axis powers occupied most of Europe and North Africa. Failure to defeat the Soviets and the entry of the United States into the war forced Germany onto the defensive and it suffered a series of escalating defeats. In the final days of the war, during the Battle of Berlin in 1945, Hitler married his long-time lover, Eva Braun. On 30 April 1945, less than two days later, the two killed themselves to avoid capture by the Red Army, and their corpses were burned.

Under Hitler’s leadership and racially motivated ideology, the Nazi regime was responsible for the genocide of at least 5.5 million Jews and millions of other victims whom he and his followers deemed Untermenschen (“sub-humans”) and socially undesirable. Hitler and the Nazi regime were also responsible for the killing of an estimated 19.3 million civilians and prisoners of war. In addition, 29 million soldiers and civilians died as a result of military action in the European Theatre of World War II. The number of civilians killed during the Second World War was unprecedented in warfare, and constitutes the deadliest conflict in human history.Hitler-pa.jpg

History of the Swastika

The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit which means ”good fortune” or ”well being.” The motif (a hooked cross) appears to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia, perhaps representing the movement of the sun through the sky. To this day it is a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Odinism. It was used at least 5,000 years before Adolf Hitler designed the Nazi flag. It was important for the Nazis to adopt an emblem because Hitler had a convenient but spurious reason for choosing the hooked cross. It had been used by the Aryan nomads of India in the Second Millennium B.C. In Nazi theory, the Aryans were the Germans ancestors, and Hitler concluded that the swastika had been ”eternally anti-Semitic.” The symbol for the Nazis was called swastika in Sanskrit, it is a symbol of auspiciousness in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. In the Western world, the swastika since the 1930s has mostly been associated with the flag of Nazi Germany and the Nazi Party. The swastika is a very old symbol with use widespread throughout the world. Sometimes referred to as a ”Gammadion” ”Hakenkreuz” or a ”Flyfot,” it traditionally had been a sign of good fortune and well being The word ”swastika” is derived from the Sanskrit ”su” meaning ”well” and ”asti” meaning ”being.” The coat of arms of Germany displays a black eagle with red feet, beak and tongue on a yellow field, blazoned: Or an eagle displayed sable beaked langued and membered gules. This is the Bundesadler or ”Federal Eagle”, formerly the Reichsadler or ”Imperial Eagle.” The national emblem of Germany is the German Democratic Republic featured a hammer and a compass, surrounded by a ring of rye. It was an example of what has been called ”socialist heraldry.” The letters SS stands for The Schutzstaffel (SS; also stylized as with Armanen runes; German pronunciation: literally ”Protection Squadron”) was a major paramilitary organization under Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP; Nazi Party) in Nazi Germany. The Waffen-SS (German pronunciation: Armed SS) was created as the armed wing of the Nazi Party’s Schutzstaffel (SS, ”Protection Squadron”), and gradually developed into a multi-ethnic and multi-national military force of Nazi Germany. swastik

9/11 Attack on World Trade Center

The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group called Al Qaida led by Osama Bin Laden on American soil in the morning of Tuesday September 11,2001. The attacks killed over an estimate of 3,000 people and injured over 6,000 others and caused at least $10 billion in property and damages caused from the attacks. Both United Airlines and American Airlines were hijacked by 19 Al Qaida hijackers and both planes were targeted to hit the World Trade Center. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110 story towers collapsed, with falling debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47 story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures in the complex. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, crashed into the Pentagon (The headquarters of the United States Department of Defense) in Arlington Country, Virginia,leading to a partial collapse of the Western side of the building. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington D.C. but crashed crashed into a field in Stony creek Township near Pennsylvania after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers from crashing the plane. It was the deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed respectively. The suspicion of the attack on the World Trade Center quickly fell on Al Qaida and the United States responded to the terrorist attack by launching the War on Terror and invading Afghanistan to depose the Taliban terrorist group, which had harbored Al Qaida. Many countries had strengthened their anti terrorism legislation and expanded the powers of law enforcement and intelligence agencies to prevent terrorist attacks. Although Al Qaida’s leader, Osama Bin Laden, initially denied any involvement, in 2004 he claimed responsibility for the 9/11 attacks. Al Qaida and bin laden cited US support of Israel, the presence of US troops in Saudi Arabia and sanctions against Iraq as motives. Having evaded capture for almost a decade, Osama Bin Laden was located and killed by SEAL Team Six of the US Navy in May 2011. The destruction of the World Trade Center and nearby infrastructure caused serious damage to the economy of Lower Manhattan and had a significant effect on global markets, closing Wall Street until September 17 and the civilian airspace in the US and Canada until September 13. per_collapse_091111_190453a_8col.jpg

Is Islam Peaceful?

Unknown.jpeg

This blog is not meant to offend anyone but the reason I’m posting this blog is because I want to show everyone the truth about the religion of Islam. The truth about Islam is that it is actually a political ideology that promotes violence against the non believers, infidels, women and homosexuals and world domination is the main goal of the ”religion of peace”. Muslims who think that Islam is a peaceful religion and does not tolerate violence against the non believers is totally biased and stupid because Muslims know that their religion promotes violence against infidels and gays but they don’t want to admit it. The history of Islam is simple which is that Prophet Muhammad had slaves and treated them unfairly plus Muslims invaded other countries like Spain, India and Persia to spread their religion by sword not wisdom. Many people who didn’t accept Islam or left the religion were either executed or raped because they were considered apostates or infidels for not accepting Islamic customs. Many verses in the Quran tells Muslim believers to kill apostates who leaves the Islamic religion and kill people from other faiths such as Christians, Jews, etc. Wife beating is also very popular in the Islamic religion as well as rape and pedophilia which is more proof that Islam and Muslims aren’t peaceful what so ever so claiming that Islam is the most peaceful religion on Earth is a waste of knowledge. Majority of Muslims living in Western countries wants to install Sharia Law which is the law of God instead of following Western laws and by the way Sharia Law treats women unfairly, promotes killings of Christians and Jews, promotes violence against Homosexuals, etc. If you feel offended by this blog then please don’t even bother reading this!

Trump: 45th President of the United States

After the most historic presidential election in American history on Tuesday November 8,2016 many people are shocked or upset by the election results that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had won the election meanwhile Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton had lost. The reason why Donald Trump had won the election is because many Americans wanted change in the country and so they chose to vote Donald Trump as the best candidate because they believe he will make a better president of the United States then Hillary Clinton and most Americans actually supported Trump’s ideas on illegal immigration and banning Muslims from entering the US. Most Muslims and Hispanics were upset that Republican candidate Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States because they believe when Trump gets in office at the White House he will deport millions of people who came here undocumented and ban all Muslims from entering the United States. Still I think Trump will be a better president than Hillary Clinton because Hillary is going to start WW3 and bring in millions of illegals and refugees.
