I’m just going to leave this utterly horrible abomination of a confession right here. And not say a damn thing.
*waits and watches her dash*
Honestly, I just love your pun (horrible abomination, eh eh?).
I’ll be 30 in the spring. And I love Anders :>
I will always always stand by my opinion that Anders did the right thing. If you look far enough in this tumblr you can see me waxing poetic, but I think the best way to put it is that I view blowing up the chantry more akin to blowing up the home or office of a vicious, violent genocidal dictator (sure, innocents may die in that scenario, but could you REALLY blame someone for trying to gain their freedom in any way possible?) than a house of worship of any sort.
Man this was supposed to be a one liner wtf
Also, I am 27 years old. Suck my nonexistand dick.
The “the Chantry is not a soft target” argument is the only counterpoint to “Anders is a terrorist” I respect.
Though I don’t agree, I can at least follow the thought process.
Understandable. I think it’s a cultural thing— Americans associate blowing buildings up with terrorism, where as at least I personally, see the chantry as one of many dictators to plague one Latin American country or another at some point. It never felt like a soft target at all, because it runs the world with an iron fist.
This is an incorrect assumption about my motives and thought process.
He’s a terrorist because of what he did. His cause is a separate concern. I’ll explain:
I’m not denying your point of view. I acknowledge that terrorism is a tactic, not an ideological position, and that such tactics have been used by people with justifiable, sympathetic motives nearly as often as they have by those whose point of views Americans are more acquainted with.
To use two American examples: Some people look at Anders and see John Brown, others look at Anders and see Timothy McVeigh. I’m in the latter camp. But my argument is and always has been that even if he is John Brown he’s a terrorist, because that’s what Brown was - that his motivations were noble, his cause was just, and he was right doesn’t change that.
But then, to get people to understand how I can say that they gotta realize I’m not using terrorist as a pejorative. This can often - especially with other Americans - take a while.
