Attention! These images no longer have an emotional impact on you: the victim is stupid, hypocritical, vicious and slutty

A woman falls down from the Saint Paul Cathedral and dies. This is the title of the news before it was discovered that this was a suicide. Our fellow citizens wonder what she was doing on the cathedral. Maybe she was taking a selfie, someone replies. Someone else says that she would not want to face God after having taken her own life and such a crime is the supreme attack to the embodiment of God.

A Romanian woman died in London after falling down from the St. Paul Cathedral.The woman who fell from the tower of St. Paul Cathedral on 11 October was Romanian, according to the British tabloid Mirror. The 23 year old woman had been living in the UK for…
– For the relics kissers: I would not want to face God after having taken my own life. And the reason is that in Genesis 9:6, murder is presented as the supreme attack to the embodiment of God […]. Either I destroy God’s embodiment, by killing someone else, or I destroy myself, this is the absolute proof of the lack of faith, and without faith it is impossible to be loved by God.
– God forbid! How did she manage to do such a thing??? Someone must have pushed her… I hope there are cameras over there
– What was she doing up there on the cathedral? Usually people go inside.
– Probably she was taking a selfie.
A family was held captive by Talibans for five years. Children witnessed scenes in which their mother was raped by the ones holding them captive.
Ahem. They were “on holiday” (while she was pregnant) in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Now, he won’t give up that Taliban beard, that’s too “homeland”. 47 persons like that.

A man held captive for five years thought that Talibans were making fun of him when they were telling him Trump had been elected president
Joshua Boyle and his wife, Caitlin, were kidnapped by the Haqqani Taliban group, five years ago.
– They were “on holiday” (while she was pregnant) in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Now, he won’t give up that Taliban beard, that’s too “homeland”.
– The Talibans had enough sex with her in 5 years! The husband was a spectator! Poor guy, when he found out who became president, he asked to go back to the Talibans :)) He would rather have watched his wife feeding the Talibans, instead of living in a country presided by Trump!
– Apparently they had 2 more children while being held captive by the Talibans :)) OMG! CNN? This is nothing compared to you guys!
– So they took a trip to Afghanistan while she was pregnant. Smart enough! That is, like she was going to Yellowstone or something!
But what do people think about the Irish woman struck by a tree during the Ophelia hurricane? Well, let’s see. Irish people are as idiotic as Romanians, I wonder whether they are related. They knew the storm was coming, what the hell were they doing under the trees? Or: Now, you try to spread panic among people, telling them how many dogs and rats have died!

The first victim of hurricane Ophelia
Approx. 120,000 homes have been left without electricity and the Government mobilized the army.
-Irish people are as idiotic as Romanians, I wonder whether they are related. They knew the storm was coming, what the hell were they doing under the trees
– Now, you try to spread panic among people, telling them how many dogs and rats have died!
– The second victim has already been recorded.
Let’s talk then about the Romanians saved by the Carabinieri from an Italian farm where they were held in slavery. Come on, if you ask them how they are doing there, they will tell you it’s Heaven on Earth, they are so high in the instep… I am sorry to say this, it’s not that I am mean or something, but that is the truth for many of them! And, after all, Why don’t they treat other immigrants in the same way?? Because I suppose people from other ethnicities work there too. But they won’t allow Italians to treat them as they treat Romanians. So they should accept this as a result of their inertness.
Translation of the Facebook post
35 Romanians, men and women, who were working on a farm in southern Italy under conditions that are difficult to imagine, similar to slavery, were saved by the Carabinieri.
– Come on, if you ask them how they are doing there, they will tell you it’s Heaven on Earth, they are so high in the instep… I am sorry to say this, it’s not that I am mean or something, but that is the truth for many of them!
– Why don’t they treat other immigrants in the same way?? Because I suppose people from other ethnicities work there too. But they won’t allow Italians to treat them as they treat Romanians. So they should accept this as a result of their inertness.
– What do you mean “were rescued”? They could have left whenever they wanted… and come back to Romania and work for 1200 RON in a multinational. What’s the problem, in the end?
OK, we solved this one too, now let’s move forward. A 7 year old kid died in hospital following the car crash on DN2. Ahem, so where on Earth was Holy Paraschieva? Lol. And, still, does anyone count how many fall victims to the Paraschieva foolishness? Another question.
Translation of the Facebook post
A serious car crash took place on Saturday afternoon on DN2 E, in Cornul Luncii town, between Fălticeni and Gura Humorului.
– Ahem… so where on Earth was Holy Paraschieva?
– And, still, does anyone count how many fall victims to the Paraschieva foolishness?
– May they rest in peace.
– May God forgive them.
– Well, he did like Tăriceanu, he wanted a place in front
– Speed kills. So does stupidity.
We get to the Weinstein scandal, right where we started from, in order to write this article. When she was poor and a no name, the situation was no longer humble and degrading. They made so much money today thanks to their past, which they agreed with. Now, many years later, full of money, they finally remembered. Really? And, of course, we must take into consideration the fact that LET’S BE SERIOUS, a case that no longer surprises me at all. No disrespect meant, but the vast majority of females, in order to climb the ladder of life and to look down on the world from the top of it, strike a deal with the male devil. The rant continues, I have limited space here, therefore I stop.

The actress Jennifer Lawrence related an incident that took place at the beginning of her career when, at a certain moment, she was forced to “stand naked in line next to…”
– When she was poor and a no name, the situation was no longer humble and degrading. They made so much money today thanks to their past, which they agreed with. Now, many years later, full of money, they finally remembered. Really?
– When they started their career, they would not say anything! Now that they have become multi-millionaires, they started to disclose Hollywood secrets. If they don’t like it, they should emigrate to North Korea, China or even Albania! If they go to Russia, they might actually start appreciating the US more…
– Who forces those women? Why don’t they refuse? If all of them refused, such “abuses” would no longer take place. They use their beauty to get money and fame and then they pretend they have been abused. Is it that those unscrupulous producers came and kidnapped them, or actually they willingly accepted everything?
– LET’S BE SERIOUS, a case that no longer surprises me at all. No disrespect meant, but the vast majority of females, in order to climb the ladder of life and to look down on the world from the top of it, strike a deal with the male devil. How many anonymous, beautiful and intelligent…
I am curious to see the comments on the New Yorker webpage, where the news was published. I am scrolling down frantically and I can’t seem to find a single negative comment about the victims. OK, maybe it is a target audience issue. I access the Fox News webpage, I scroll down, I see no negative comments about the victims. And I am forced to accept the fact that our nation has a very serious problem. The forced confinement of a family is not something atrocious or, if it is, we don’t care. We care about the fact that they did something wrong and ended up in this situation. Suicide is no longer a macabre accident and it sparkles no trace of empathy in us. We know that the dead person is to blame. Even for natural disasters, someone is to blame – the fool who knew the hurricane was coming and, see, now she’s dead. It serves her right. Just like it serves them right, those stupid and inert Romanians who allowed to be turned into slaves. And that idiot kid died in the car crash on DN2 due to his own fault too. Due to his stupidity, to be more specific. Natural selection, what to do? And, finally, we get to talk about sexual abuse. From Weinstein to #metoo, there is a serious blame there. No, we must not fool ourselves, the predator is not to blame, but the victim. The victim is stupid, hypocritical, vicious and slutty. End of story.
Victim blaming is a phenomenon that has been studied by psychologists and that many persons talk about. Elsewhere. The conclusion they reached is that people blame victims based on the fair world hypothesis. We stubbornly continue to believe that we live in a fair world and, therefore, nothing bad can happen to a good person. Otherwise, this could happen to me too, because, me too, I am a fair person. But this cannot happen to me, therefore the victim surely is to blame. A perfectly valid theory that applies to Romanians. Victim blaming is a generalized phenomenon in our country, it is the natural reaction that most of us have when we hear about an abuse or a tragic situation. And it does not stem from the fair world hypothesis, for the simple reason that we’re still the ones who shout «bribe and corruption» as a leitmotif every time when we have the opportunity. And also when we shouldn’t do it.
All the bad things happening in this country happen because we live in an unfair society where “there’s a lot of corruption”. All the good things that happen to someone who is successful occur because he “was having friends” or “who knows in front of whom she kneeled”. The fair world does not exist, in our point of view, even a seven year old child knows that in Romania “things don’t go their way”. Then, where does our victim blaming instinct originate from?
There are two complementary explanations. The first one is what Hannah Arendt used to call the banality of Evil, and the second one is the need to separate yourself from your own vulnerability. I know, I have written about Hannah Arendt. I write about Ikes, therefore this article has no value, it’s only cheap leftist propaganda. I know, I used the word Ikes, this article has no value, it is only Christianopathic right winged propaganda. And this is the banality of Evil in a shape different from the one described by Hannah Arendt.
We tend to consider the Evil around us as commonplace, not because we got used to it, but because we reached that state where any discussion has two extremes – left and right. And then we no longer talk about rape, we talk about feminism and anti-feminism. We no longer talk about a terrorized, humiliated woman or man, for whom their own body becomes a terrible prison the moment they can no longer control it, they can no longer run and no one comes up to save you, like in the movies. We don’t talk about that person’s nightmares, about the feeling of guilt, the pain, the bruises and the nervous shudder when touched. No, we talk about retard leftists seeking attention. Or about Christianopathic right winged extremists. We take the discussion to the ideological level, and that person, with their bruises and internal pains, becomes a background noise. We argue fiercely, while that person wails and cries. So we turn down the volume, so that it no longer interferes with our ideological argument. We end up banalizing any Evil because it can be reduced to a concept and we clearly know that a sexually abused person is a leftist concept, whereas a child who died in a car crash on a way that leads to holy relics is a right winged concept. After that, we turn off the light and the laptop, satisfied that we have expressed our point of view. Boom.
The second explanation is related to our own vulnerability, to the manner in which we were raised and to our emotional matrix. You are five years old, you are in a swinger, you fall down and hurt yourself. Then you learn for the first time that you are stupid and that it is your fault that you have fallen down, from the parent who yells at you, while you are bleeding. You know it is your fault, therefore it is pointless to whimper. And the fact that that swing should have had some safety systems installed, to prevent this situation, is completely unimportant. Afterwards, after you get more and more bruises and scars, you find out these are “signs of good behavior”. But don’t worry. “It will all pass until you get married.”
When you are a grown up, married or single, you find out that you have lost your savings in a fraudulent financial scheme because you were a fool. No injustice happened to you, there is no aggressor out there, you are a fool and you deserve to pay for it.
Upset, you go home and, in the bus, your wallet gets stolen. You tell this to a friend and the first question is: “Well, why did you keep it in your back pocket?”.
The years pass and you get married. If your partner cheats on you, again you find out that you are a fool. If they beat you, it means you provoked them. If someone rapes you, it means you’ve been asking for it. This is how you realize that you are stupid, impotent, a bitch, a human error from all the points of view. And, because you really wish you could no longer be so, you must change this perception and you must show people that you could never end up in the victim’s position. Clearly, you cannot defend the victim. The more you hit her, the more you praise the aggressor, the more you dissociate yourself from vulnerability, that shameful secret that you hope no one ever finds out. At the end, you die, and people wish you to be forgiven by God. What do you mean, what for? For all the situations in which you were a fool, weak, a bitch and impotent.
This is how we end up in the situation where a woman is raped by seven men and the fellow villagers protect them all and attack instead the woman who ruined the lives of those boys. But we are very puzzled by the situations in which the victim is, apparently, innocent. Nils Christie, a Norwegian criminology professor, theorized the concept of “ideal victim”. An old woman who comes back from a visit to her children and is attacked on her way home is the ideal victim. She is old, therefore she did not provoke the attacker. She had been visiting her children, therefore she is not immoral. She was going home, therefore she was not going somewhere where it was none of her business to be. A young woman coming back from the club or going to her boyfriend’s house is no longer the ideal victim. Surely she was dressed in a provocative way. Surely she shouldn’t have gone to the club or to her boyfriend’s house. For sure, she had deserved it.
Well, we are very puzzled by the victim’s innocence. The more innocent the victim is, the more they become more threatening. But the good thing is that the Romanian is inventive and he has found a solution to this problem too. A seven year old child, symbol of innocence, can be blamed because he is a fool. Irrespective if he dies in a car crash, if he gets hit while playing or if he is lured away by a pedophile to enter a car. He is stupid. And stupidity is the biggest blame, because we are terribly afraid not to be stupid ourselves.
When I was about four years old and we were living in an apartment at the ground floor of a block of flats, we constantly had mice entering our home and my dad was constantly trying to hunt them down. I was not aware that those were pests that I should have been scared of, therefore for me they were “the little ones”. I was following my dad throughout the entire apartment and I was screaming not to kill the little ones and, therefore, he was trying to catch them alive and take them out. One day, a mouse took shelter between the window panes – in those times we did not have double-glazed windows. Father had chased it for hours, he was exasperated, tired, and I was screaming not to kill the little one. I don’t think he noticed that the mouse was between two window panes and tried to grab it; that moment, he fully hit the window, which got broken and my dad got cut. When I saw him bleeding, I ran to the kitchen, I took a piece of cloth and I started to bandage his hand, telling him that the wound will heal. Years later, my father said he was shocked by that gesture of pure compassion from my side.
And this is the natural reaction of a person who finds out about the pain experienced by another fellow being. It is the natural reaction, because it is the one we have when we are children, before we learn it is his fault that he has not seen the glass pane, like a fool. Before we learn that empathy makes us weak and that, the more jokes we make about the tragedy that someone experiences, the cooler we are. Attention! These images can affect you emotionally is the native warning during TV news programs. No chance now, and maybe there has never been a chance. And, yes, I know what a stupid article, are these really our problems right now? Yes, they are. Because this is where the spiral of silence starts, as well as the triumph of the aggressor in any circumstance. Even in that circumstance that cannot happen to you.
