[THREAD] 14 OCT 1973 is the day that Thai people known as “October 14 Event” or “Day of Great Sorrow”. It is the great uprising of students in Thailand against the absolute dictatorship regime. #Thailand#14ตุลา#14October#History#ColdWar
It is remembered as one of darkest day in Thai Cold War history because there were many people died that day due to the fight between the students and government forces.
It started with “Thai students’ activism” which inspired by leftist ideology mobilizing and organizing demonstrations and rallies against the pro-American policies of the ruling government and ruling government itself.
Whites have always been disposable to non-white supremacists. We make money for them and fight wars for them. We protect their tribe and culture, so they can destroy ours and make us feel guilty for being white. No wonder we have the highest suicide rate. Sad! #CulturalMarxism
THE TRUMP-HITLER COMPARISON.
Is there any comparison? Between the way the campaigns of Donald #Trump and Adolf #Hitler should have been treated by the #media and the culture? The way the media should act now? The problem of #normalization?
Because I’d written a book called Explaining Hitler several editors had asked me, during the #campaign, to see what could be said on the subject.
Until the morning after the election I had declined them.
On February 27, 1933 the German Parliament building burned, Adolf #Hitler rejoiced, and the #Nazi era began. 1/
#Hitler, who had just been named head of a #government that was legally formed after the democratic #elections of the previous November, seized the opportunity to change the system. “There will be no mercy now,” he exulted. “Anyone standing in our way will be cut down.”
The next day, at Hitler’s advice and urging, the #German#president issued a decree “for the protection of the people and the state.”
The medieval formation & modern history of the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, & Lithuania) is a very intricate, difficult topic.
Sadly, key artefacts were deliberately blown up (Boris Stones) stolen (Euphrasia’s Cross) or erased (by propaganda or genocide)
after the 1939 Soviet-Nazi pact such that the 1 artefact unifying the area in #medieval times - the COG ship used by Catholic Crusaders then adopted by Orthodox colonizers & Slavic tribes along the Neman, Daugava, Emmajõgi, Velikaya, & Volkhov Rivers - is terribly rare.
Yet of the COG remains its MOSS - polytrichum commune - flourishing all over the region.
Since Soviet studies had to ignore dendochronology (tree-ring dating) & Chernobyl’s radiation (=false chemical dating) & skirt the limits of KGB monitoring,& since 1992 each free
There's been so much hype about #Zanzibar, but at the same time, a few people weren't particularly thrilled. Had to go find out for myself ,so some friends and I planned a trip. What I think? Top rating for beaches, good food, so much to see, history. Read this thread... #Travel
From #DaresSalaam, you have the options of flying or going by ferry to #Zanzibar. On the other hand, you could fly directly there. We spent a few days in Dar, then we went by ferry...it cost $35 per person for economy and $50 per person for VIP. We travelled in the VIP section.
It takes 1hr30mins to get to Zanzibar by ferry. It could take longer when it's turbulent. The hotel we stayed in was an hour away from stone town. We stayed in Nungwi which is North of Zanzibar. #Travel#Africa#Tanzania#holidays
Strap in for some crazy #Texas#history:
"The time they lynched Santa Claus for robbing a bank."
Let me set a scene:
1927: Texas Banker's Assn. responds to rash of bank robberies (3-4/day) by offering $5K reward for shooting a bank robber in the act.
Group of 4 criminals plan December 1927 heist of Cisco, TX bank: 1. Robert Hill 2. Harry Helms 3. Marshall Ratliff 4. Louis Davis
Ratliff was veteran bank robber, Helms and Hill he knew from Huntsville prison.
Davis was a cousin of Helms brought in because safe cracker got flu.
Ratliff borrows a Santa Claus suit from boarding house, dropped off blocks away, followed by children as decoy for entry of the 4 men through alley entrance of bank.
#History/#Art thread – From my recent trip to Madurai/Tirunelveli. On Jain sites (some with a rich history dating back to at least the 3rd cent. BCE), early Pandyan rock-cut cave temples (7th-8th cent. CE) & the amazing Vettuvan koil.
Pic: Mahavira (~8 cent CE), Kizhakuyilkudi
Before I start on the places, the history around all this is fascinating & splits opinion. Is it apt to call the script Tamili/Tamil Brahmi? Did it develop independently in the Tamil country/come with the Jain monks from the north? Were 8,000 Jains actually impaled in Madurai?>
>Were the Saivites overaggressive in promoting their faith? Shall only be happy to discuss on these separately (unless it gets too long/irrational). And I’m not posting every inscription from the places here, despite their importance. Again, shall be happy to discuss them.
The original founder of the Astor fortune was John Jacob #Astor (1763-1848). John Jacob Astor was born in Walldorf, Duchy of Baden #Germany from a #Jewish#bloodline. The #Jewish origins have been hidden, and quite a number of various ideas of 1/38
Has anybody revisited the 1962 Sidney Poitier movie "Pressure Point" in light of the persistence of white supremacist politics in our time? imdb.com/title/tt005637…
In one scene, the white supremacists are singing "The Star Spangled Banner," the anthem of the United States, at one of their meetings, with USA & 3rd Reich flags displayed
In another scene, the white supremacist prisoner scoffs at Poitier's suggestion that White Supremacy will fail because it is built on a lie. He says, "This country is built on a lie." He asks if it treats people like "All men are created equal." #film#history#racism
#India#KakoriTrainRobbery#History has it that A staunch Sanatani Arya Samaji, Cow protector, young poet and writer who rose from extreme poverty, and was involved in Shuddhukaran or reconversion of People to #Hinduism, met a nationalist, progressive #Muslim (yes, they exist).
#History has it that they became friends who couldn’t live without one another. A day when the #Muslim friend suffered a fit, he went down crying “Ram, Ram” which shocked his family. Later they realised he was chanting his friend’s name. #India
The two friends were great sons of #India Ram Prasad #Bismil and #Ashfaqullah Khan Warsi. They become friends, they lived and died together. #History has it that in his short life where he faced huge treacheries , #Ashfaq was the one who #Bismil trusted as soul brother.
Often Democrats mislabel our governance and that’s not by accident. As you can see, Democracy in its purest form is not what most would want. Our constructional republic is a much better way to govern bc ppl have the power not government. The inalienable rights are irrevocable!
With all this talk these days about the First & Second Amendment, Democrats want you to forget those inalienable rights are irrevocable so they can impose requirements making it impossible to enjoy . This is a detriment to society. Ex. Chicago 2A & Social Media censorship 1A!
At the outskirts of Jericho stands Khirbat al-Mafjar or the Hisham's Palace, one of the most remarkable structures of Late Antiquity, dating from the Umayyad dynasty period (probably the first half of the 8th C). It tells so many stories! /1 #lateantique#history
It was discovered at the end of the 19th century but the main excavations were carried out by Dimitri Baramki between 1934 and 1948 (later joined by Robert Hamilton). You can read more about Baramki here: palestine-studies.org/sites/default/… /2
The palace was a lavish retreat connected with an agricultural complex with gardens, a mosque and a bath. It belongs to the group of "desert castles" that in their plan might be a creative development of a Roman fort or estate. /3
WHY DO THEY NEVER ASK THE ANONS WHY THEY ARE HERE?
REAL ANON'S are here as we follow the EVIDENCE (documented verifiable evidence) we are building the #TRUTH of our #HISTORY so we can expose & dismantle corruption that has #PLAGUED our world for millennia
I invite any publication to print this as a statement of fact from an ACTUAL ANON.
WE do not tell YOU what to think or how to FEEL about a topic. WE simply dig for TRUTH & then PRESENT what we find so it can be scrutinized by our PEERS & further corroborated.
The #FBI is turning 110! Follow along as we remember 11 decades in 11 days. Today we will highlight some of our milestones and significant cases from the early 2000s. #FBI110
In 2000 the #FBI's first Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory opened in San Diego. Today RCFLs across the country provide law enforcement agencies with technical support and training in support of criminal investigations. #FBI110rcfl.gov
In 2001, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the #FBI dedicated 7,000 of its 11,000 Special Agents and thousands of support personnel to the PENTTBOM investigation. It remains the largest investigation in FBI #history. #FBI110ow.ly/6tFt30l6Z8R
Aiko Herzig-Yoshinaga (1925-2018) discovered a copy of "Final Report" produced by the Civil Affairs Division of the Western Defense Command in April 1943. Every copy of the report, drafts and notes, was directed to be destroyed.
The Final Report stated it was "impossible to establish the identity of the loyal and the disloyal with any degree of safety." Meaning all Japanese Americans, the majority of whom were US citizens, were to be judged solely on their ethnicity/ancestry.
Final Report stated: It wasnt' that there was insufficient time in which to make such a determination; it was simply a matter of facing the realities that a positive determination could not be made, that an exact separation of the 'sheep from the goats' was unfeasible. #history
In 1950 British agents arrested Soviet spy Klaus Fuchs after FBI agents helped make counterintelligence use of telegrams decrypted & decoded by Army experts. The work, later code named Venona, was key to advancing #FBI#counterintelligence program. #FBI110fbi.gov/history/histor…
In 1951, 4 subjects – Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, David Greenglass and Morton Sobell – were each convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage in what was dubbed at the time as the “Trial of the Century.” #FBI110fbi.gov/history/famous…
