These 3 tweets hit the nail on the head for me.
And with that said, I won’t say anymore about Madiba today. He’s lived a long life. He was 95. He’s now at peace. I just don’t like how the mainstream press is framing his life in a very easy and digestible narrative, but that is to be expected. It really is nauseating to see imperialistic vultures chiming in with their condolences. I mean, we have people who were part of a system that sought to crush Mandela weighing in to tell us about what an exemplary man he was. My words cannot express how disgusting that is, but the show must go on. All that is left is for Dick Chaney and P.W. Botha’s children to start singing Mandela’s praises.
There seriously needs to be an episode of MLP:FIM where Spike gets really into something that Fluttershy is into and ends up pushing her into changes that make her uncomfortable, crowding her out of, it and taking it over until the other ponies make him see what he’s done, and another one where Spike loves Rainbow Dash’s performance in a talent show so much he ends up rigging the vote for her and then she’s like, “Didn’t you believe in me enough to let me win for real?”
…not that I think the bronies would take the message.
This baby goat is having the time of its freaking life
