Twitter Campaign: These are only facts.
Feel free to join in on this campaign to boycott the Exodus movie trailer. I’m so infuriated that it is 2014 and we are still portraying on the silver screen a falsehood of what the ancient Egyptians were! Use the hashtag #BoycottExodusMovie to join. This is honestly some fuck boy mentality honestly!
i will be boycotting this. I hope this takes off
This bullshit movie
once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it
loaded language and media bias
it’s even worse if you watch the 24hr coverage. CNn has literally been referring to the situation as “uprisings”. Uprisings, like we’re talking about the fucking districts rising against the capitol or some such shit.
As a long-time activist, I can attest to the fact that “clashes with police” is media code for police violence.
