Isn't the quote in your picture from Genghis Khan?
User avatar #29 to #23 - ShadeElement (11/28/2012) [-]
Although Genghis Khan was known to enjoy hearing the ladies moan (giggity), this particular quote is from Conan the Barbarian.

“The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.” This is what I was thinking of.
User avatar #44 to #35 - ShadeElement (11/28/2012) [-]
The modern translation would be-
"Aint nothin' better than kickin' some punk bitch's ass so hard he goes runnin' down the block, stealin his bike, burning down his crib, makin' his momma cry, then makin his daughter suck yo dick before ****** his baby momma."

Alpha as **** .

Ah, then i'm thinking of a similar but different quote. Thank you!
User avatar #39 to #32 - ShadeElement (11/28/2012) [-]
The scene in the 1982 film draws heavily on Genghis Khan influences. I'm not surprised his quote was adapted as well.
On a related note: Mongol is an awesome film.

That's like saying Germany shouldn't feel bad for Nazism.
Russian shouldn't feel bad for the USSR.
Catholics shouldn't feel bad for
-Persecution of "witches"
-Persecution of muslims
-of gays
-of pagans

It isn't that you should stop any festivities, it's that you should remember that even though you are celebrating, that you must remember the bad things that have happened, so you don't repeat those mistakes in the future.

It's all about motives
#80 to #71 - sgtsmilies (11/29/2012) [-]
Germans shouldn't feel bad for Nazis. Neither should Russians feel bad for the USSR. Catholics should feel bad because their religion is something they can leave, while you cannot stop being a German.
User avatar #84 to #80 - Crusader (11/29/2012) [-]
No, Germany should feel bad.
When Berlin fell and split in two, a major difference between east and west was that the west was made to feel bad for the actions of their fathers.
The East were taught 'It's not your fault, you had no control" and because of that they had a resurgence of Nazism in the late 50's and again in the early 60's. And it eventually calmed down, but it had a devastating impact.
By the USSR saying "it's not your fault" and then dropping the matter, they left the mistakes of the past to be repeated, the whole "Those who do not know history, shall be doomed to repeat it"
Whereas in the West they were constantly reminded of it, and had the constant stigma of it. it's not that they should feel inherently guilty, but they need to be reminded that their predecessors ****** up.
#85 to #84 - sgtsmilies (11/29/2012) [-]
"should feel bad."
No.
"reminded that their predecessors ****** up."
These are not the same things. The second I agree with. The first one is dumb.
User avatar #86 to #85 - Crusader (11/29/2012) [-]
Meh, if getting them to feel bad helps them remember not to **** up, then it's a means to an end, it's like yelling at a child because he hit the dog.
#88 to #86 - sgtsmilies (11/29/2012) [-]
That's like shouting at a child because his brother hit a dog and you don't want him to. It doesn't make sense. Just tell him that hitting dogs is bad.
User avatar #89 to #88 - Crusader (11/29/2012) [-]
No, I figured it out.
It's like lecturing a kid because he is starting to act like his older brother did at his age.
And his older brother went on to be an douchebag.

You are making him feel bad because he is acting bad, but hasn't actually done anything bad yet.

EUREKA

Previously in debt, now they are doing well as far as I can tell.
They are getting heavy into weapons manufacturing and military stuff, much like during the infamous rise.
Tensions are starting to brew with France and Russia again.
There are some things that are starting to be similar.
Though still, this post is about 'Murica, and they are acting like they did back then, but instead of Britain/America against the natives, the natives are now Arabs.

There isn't the tension of post WWI, and Germany pulling it off would be an incredible miracle considering I don't think they're gonna have anyone on their side.

Meh, a lot of Arabian countries use German made guns and to keep that going, they are going to need to stick together.

Man, I understand that my predecessors weren't exactly saints, but that is no reason for me to feel guilty for their actions.

Cut the white guilt crap and just be a good person to people who are still alive.

yeah, cause indians were only killed in the USA. lets not mention the spanish completely destroying the aztecs and mayans. im supposed to feel guilty because people with the same color skin as me made destructive choices 200+ years ago. i have french-canadian and lakota sioux blood in my veins and im proud of it. im NOT going to apologize for the genocide and im NOT going to apologize for slavery.

TL;DR= sorry for the rant, this **** makes me angry
User avatar #59 to #56 - churrundo (11/28/2012) [-]
the temple massacre was the fault of a single man who did not follow cortez's orders. cortez left tenochtitlán (mexico city) to meet with pedro de alvarado in veracruz. the dude he left in charge (i can't remember his name) ordered the massacre. which turned everyone into enemies. if it hadn't been for that the spanish would have been assimilated completely. and i say completely because they still mixed with a lot of indians, which is why to this day you can see mexicans with brown skin.
compare the native american population in the US and in mexico. **** , there's even a wikipedia in nahuatl (nah-wah-tl), the aztec language. how much of the navajo, the sioux, the apache cultures did the english embrace?
#95 to #59 - ogloko (11/29/2012) [-]
in both situations it was men's minds, not their heritage, that committed the act.

Mexicans are indians. They lived in the same place and same time when christopher columbus came.
#61 to #56 - musicforlife (11/28/2012) [-]
i agree with you.

people of a race don't have to feel guilty for what their kind did to other people hundreds of years ago. what happened, happened and its all just history in the making.
User avatar #67 to #56 - Crusader (11/28/2012) [-]
That's like saying, "it wasn't just nazi germany that was killing jews, and it happened a long time ago, so we shouldn't feel bad about it"
Or "It wasn't just the Catholic church burning 'witches', protestants and muslims did it as well, and it happened centuries ago, so we shouldn't feel bad"
That kind of logic leads to the revival of those cultures in later years. In East Germany (Soviet Germany) they were taught not to feel bad about what their fathers and grandfathers did, and then they had a revival of nazism, albeit, it was put down quickly, but they still had men and boys in nazi uniforms marching throughout the streets.
#94 to #67 - ogloko (11/29/2012) [-]
thats not what im saying at all. there are lessons to be learned from history. culpability isnt genetic though. germans should look at the holocaust and see the perils of blind faith. they dont need to feel guilty, also they shouldnt justify it. to do either is uncalled for

The EUROPEANS (not Americans) came to North America and their diseases wiped out most of the Natives, and what was left of them failed to unite and failed to match our technologies and were eliminated for the sake of attaining more areas for our rapidly expanding population, all of which happened hundreds of years ago. Get over it.
User avatar #76 to #26 - Crusader (11/29/2012) [-]
The descendants of Europeans (which called themselves americans, as they were mostly born in the americas, very few european born settlers fought with the natives after the 13 colonies were created, most of the people fighting were americans) got natives dependent on alcohol, took land that way, then proceeded to move West, yes they gave them diseases, but really, that happens with any invasion, and slaughtered them, killing men woman and children, young and old, whereas most of the natives tribes, simply killed grown men.

Then those americans created governments, put the natives on reserves and have ****** them over ever since.

Moral of the story, it was Americans who bought Natives for the most part, Americans slaughtered everyone instead of only killing grown men (Which was the "honourable thing to do") and then stuck them on reserves which have devolved into trailer parks full of thieves, drugs and other illegal things due to the historical stigma surrounding the natives that made it near-impossible to find work, and therefore have been treated as second-class citizens until the past few decades.
#28 to #26 - comradewinter ONLINE (11/28/2012) [-]
At that time, Europeans were the Americans. If they merely visited and returned to Europe it would've been different. You can't blame Europeans for something just because the US wasn't an independent country at the time.

Also, the white men sent rags and stuff to the natives they had coated in said diseases, to effectively wipe them out. It was a genocide.

you sir

are a stupid
#31 to #30 - comradewinter ONLINE (11/28/2012) [-]
Your reasoning for this statement? Can you prove me wrong?
#38 to #31 - keijimaeda (11/28/2012) [-]
Yes, I can actually.

The fact that your saying "This isn't the Europeans fault, it was the Americans fault" when America had not even been formed or thought of at that time is completely and utterly ******* stupid. That's like saying "No, man, the Russians were so Soviets during the Renaissance Era, they just hadn't been invented yet lololol". It was in fact the Europeans fault, because it was the ******* Europeans who sailed over there. Americans and Canadians all have European heritage. And, to top this all off, your logic that the Euros gave the Native Aboriginals furs to wipe them out is completely false with lack of proof.


So, I reiterate: you are a stoopid
#40 to #38 - comradewinter ONLINE (11/28/2012) [-]
This is what I replied to mkchillin:

"I was contradicting your statement that the Europeans were to blame for the genocide, not the Americans. Back then it was pretty much the same, except they were referred to as Settlers, not Americans. It's true that the ones who almost annihilated the Natives were of European origins, but those people settled into the unofficially named America and became citizens later on."

To put the blame on Europeans or Americans is the same thing. Yes, they had European heritage, no, they didn't stay that way. They were the first settlers, and what you may consider your founding fathers. To blame Europeans for something the Settlers did is the stupid thing here. Especially when you talk like Europe is a country. Most of the countries there didn't even send a single immigrant, they mostly came from England or Spain.

So with that logic the Spaniards arriving in Central America who's diseases the natives had no immunity to were Mexicans then? The people arriving in New England weren't Americans as the country didn't exist then. In fact they all were there for the intention of bringing glory and obtaining resources for their respective countries, who's kings they all still continued to swear loyalty to.

Yet, most of the people who fought with the natives in what is now the USA, were born in the Americas.
George Washington was born in a British Colony, is he not American?
He was born and raised in the Americas, was he not?
The denomination "American" historically means "from America" much like the Africans born and raised in British colonies in Africa were not British, they were African.

Not really, this post is mainly true.
The first thanksgiving did end with the death of nearly an entire tribe.
Thanksgiving is a harvest festival that was used to Thank the Natives for teaching them to grow crops.
It's not "liberal" it's historically accurate, the only thing wrong is it makes it seem like you are celebrating the deaths of a race, whereas you are celebrating what you are thankful for, unless you are racist, i doubt you are celebrating genocide.
User avatar #105 to #79 - facedodge (11/29/2012) [-]
You do know that the 1621 harvest feast by the pilgrims was not really the first thanksgiving right?
User avatar #106 to #105 - Crusader (11/29/2012) [-]
That's what most people base thanksgiving off of
User avatar #107 to #106 - facedodge (11/29/2012) [-]
Most people are retards. In reality there was no "first thanksgiving" There are historical accounts of Thanksgivings prior to Plymouth Rock by the Spanish in Florida for example... Or you could argue that George Washington was the founder of Thanksgiving since he was the first to nationally proclaim it as a Day of Observance.

Either way, the day you are thinking about was actually three days, had nothing to do with learning to plant corn, and never involved the word Thanksgiving. Some say the feast of 1623 was really the first thanksgiving.

"New archaeological evidence suggests that America was first discovered by Stone Age people from Europe – 10,000 years before the Siberian-originating ancestors of the American Indians set foot in the New World.

A remarkable series of several dozen European-style stone tools, dating back between 19,000 and 26,000 years, have been discovered at six locations along the US east coast. Three of the sites are on the Delmarva Peninsular in Maryland, discovered by archaeologist Dr Darrin Lowery of the University of Delaware. One is in Pennsylvania and another in Virginia. A sixth was discovered by scallop-dredging fishermen on the seabed 60 miles from the Virginian coast on what, in prehistoric times, would have been dry land."
