“The report singled out one factor that has fueled every surge in Ku Klux Klan membership in American history, from the 1860s to the present: war. The return of veterans from combat appears to correlate more closely with Klan membership than any other historical factor. “Military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists carrying out violent attacks,” the report warned. The agency was “concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.””

"Trapped" Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band (cover of Jimmy Cliff)

justkerryon1913:

When the third season of “Scandal” ends this Thursday night, ABC will be celebrating the finale with a special episode of the Jimmy Kimmel show titled “Behind the Scandalabra.” (Kimmel fans may already be familiar with his ongoing Spanish-language parody “Escandalo.”) But perhaps the most interesting “Scandal” supplement is an episode of SundanceTV’s “The Writers’ Room,” which airs this Friday. The episode features show creator Shonda Rhimes, star Kerry Washington and a handful of producers dishing on the salacious, highly successful series. Collectively they give the impression that this ratings giant comes together somewhat erratically. The show runners are asked to defend “Scandal’s” most outlandish moments, and do so by affecting a devil-may-care attitude toward plotting. Rhimes’ self-assuredness and authority in setting this tone for the show’s shocking developments is pretty awe-inspiring.

Behind the scenes of #Scandal: @shondarhimes & @kerrywashington open up about the hit show:

Reblogging again to add: 

Also, non-Jews, please spread this. People will forget about it otherwise. The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting. The more people who are paying attention to this story the harder it will be for it to be swept under the rug. 

A lot of people are currently very excited about the recent Cap movie. If you believe that it was worthwhile for Steve Rogers to fight fictional nazis, please show that you care about the people harmed by those in the real world who still agree with Nazi ideology. If you can get super excited and make tons of posts about Cap, then you can do this too, right? (obviously there are people who are upset/triggered by this stuff, which is an entirely different situation. but if you can spread the word please do)

I’m very sorry to those of you who don’t come to my blog expecting to see news or other horrible real world stuff. I thought it was worth putting out there.

Also the shooter is a former KKK Grand Dragon

Japanese child actress Mana was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.

OMG HE’S TOTORO
NEVER NOT REBLOG GUILLERMO DEL TOTORO

There is nothing I don’t love about this.
