Ghandi Quotes You’ve Never Heard
The lack of communication and documentation allowed Ghandi to create a perfect self-image of himself. But the popular image of Ghandi is a myth. In reality, Ghandi was a fascist sympathizer, blatant racist and a homophobic bisexual.
Here are some quotes from the man himself:
While in South Africa: “We were then marched off to a prison intended for Kaffirs [offensive term equivalent to the n-word]. We could understand not being classed with whites, but to be placed on the same level as the Natives seemed too much to put up with. Kaffirs are as a rule uncivilized — the convicts even more so. They are troublesome, very dirty and live like animals." 
“We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do… We believe also that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race.” — Vol. 3, p. 256
Feb. 15, 1904: “Under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population.” — Vol. 3, p. 429
To the British during WWII: “This manslaughter must be stopped. You are losing; if you persist, it will only result in greater bloodshed. Hitler is not a bad man.”
1946: “Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs… It would have aroused the world and the people of Germany… As it is they succumbed anyway in their millions.”
Gandhi believed this act of “collective suicide”, in response to the Holocaust, “would have been heroism”.

"Good afternoon. I am Mavutaseuv, Indian Girl with a Different Face. I am known as Diane Millich, and I am a citizen of the Southern Ute Indian tribe located in Ignacio, Colorado. When I was 26 years old, I dated a non-Indian, a white man. After six months, we were married. My non-Indian husband moved into my house on the reservation. To my shock, just days after our marriage, he assaulted me. After a year of abuse and more than a hundred incidences of being slapped, kicked, punched, and living in horrific terror, I left for good. During that year of marriage, I called the police many times. I called our Southern Ute tribal police department, but the law prevented them from arresting and prosecuting my husband because he was non-Indian. The county sheriff could not help me because I am a Native woman and the beatings occurred on tribal reservation land. After one beating, my ex-husband called the tribal police and the sheriff’s department himself just to show me that no one could stop him. All the times that I called the police and nothing was done only made my ex-husband believe he was above the law and untouchable. My ex-husband told me, ‘You promised us until death do us part, so death it shall be.’ Finally he arrived at my office armed with a gun. I am alive today only because my coworker pushed me out of harm’s way and took the bullet in his shoulder. For this crime he was finally arrested. But because he had never been arrested for any of the abuse against me, he was treated as a first-time offender. The state prosecutor and him reached a plea agreement of ‘aggravated driving under revocation’. If the bill being signed today were law when I was married, it would have allowed my tribe to arrest and prosecute my abuser. When this bill is signed, The Violence Against Women Act will finally reach Native American women like me."

Check out this disgusting racist letter to the editor found in the Gallup Independent newspaper.

Funny how white supremacists see being nonwhite as diametrically opposed to being human (note “redskin” versus “person”)
and then inevitably try to derail all examination of oppression with 'BUT WE ARE ALL HUMAN!!!111”

"I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race, has come in and taken their place."

Winston Churchill 

don’t forget, he was a horrible racist and blood-thirsty war criminal directly responsible for the death of millions of people.

(via taleth)

reminder again that chruchill is a piece of shit who was right about literally nothing and the fact that he hated communists only makes him more of an asshole.

(via baeddelambit)

He was right about Hitler being bad… but he thought Hitler was bad because he wanted to do exactly what is described in this quote to other European nation-states.

MUST SEE
via hick-ups:

A photograph from the 1870’s showing tens of thousands of bison skulls. They were mass slaughtered by the U.S. Army to make room for cattle and force Native American tribes into starvation.


[bolding mine]
Mass slaughter of buffalo and bison took place in Canadian territory as well, and was part of a deliberate campaign to break Indigenous resistance to (further) settler incursions onto Native land and the railroad.  The removal of the buffalo also meant that when it came time to sign treaties, the Canadian government could more or less set any terms it saw fit and Indigenous leaders basically had to comply with them or their people would freeze and starve (that’s if gov officials even bothered to translate the actual terms of the treaty at all).
The “disappearance” of the buffalo is narrativized as part of a larger myth surrounding the “disappearing Indian” whose absence clears the land for the incoming white pioneers to take their place.  The murder, destruction, slaughter of bison and buffalo was a tactic essential to the genocidal colonial project.

"Nonviolence declares that the American Indians could have fought off Columbus, George Washington, and all the other genocidal butchers with sit-ins; that Crazy Horse, by using violent resistance, became part of the cycle of violence, and as “as bad as” Custer. Nonviolence declares that Africans could have stopped the slave trade with hunger strikes and petitions, and that those who mutinied were as bad as their captors; that mutiny, a form of violence, led to more violence, and thus, resistance led to more enslavement. Nonviolence refuses to recognize that it can only work for privileged people, who have a status protected by violence, as the perpetrators and beneficiaries of a violent hierarchy."

-Peter Gelderloos, Why Nonviolence Protects the State- Nonviolence is Racist (via fuckyeahradicalquotes)

REBLOGGING FOREVER! USING VIOLENCE (OR TALKING ABOUT IT AS AN OPTION) DOES NOT MAKE YOU OPPRESSIVE!

(via msamberhazard)

Once again a white American dude tries to act like he knows something of the world, and once again gets it completely wrong.

Nonviolence doesn’t entail privilege, nonviolence simply entails an audience.  Read up on Arundhati Roy and other non-Western activists of color — us folks who actually KNOW and have had to survive this genocidal shit.

And while an audience can be a luxury, that is not a conversation that pasty Westerners like Peter Gelderloos get to dictate or even interject in. Yall really going to let some cracker ass European settler get away with branding Indians who overthrew British tyranny and African-Americans imprisoned and assassinated by white supremacy as ‘privileged people’?

LOL manarchists and their desperation for sublimating puerile white boy rage into ‘activism’ that conveniently erases the hell out of struggles they can’t even imagine.

When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence in prison. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.

Re-posting sans credit for synopsis because I want this on my tumblr but I refuse to reblog from source OP, who glorified serial murderers and pedophiles that preyed upon children of color.
