25 People I'd Call "Terrorist" Before I Called A Single Muslim One

25 People I'd Call "Terrorist" Before I Called A Single Muslim One

A President who doesn't know he is the President of the U.S Virgin Islands, who tells his own Puerto Rican citizens that they are on their own to rebuild after a natural disaster, and who thinks human beings can be "illegal," and puts their children in cages, is number one on my terrorist watch list.


Islamaphobia is an irrational fear of, and hatred towards Muslims, Islam, and to be honest, anyone who ignorant people think "looks Muslim." Recently, there was an attack on a 71-year-old Sikh man. He was beaten down and spat on, and what really got me, was that his attacker was a black man. A member of an oppressed group has the nerve to do that to do that to a member of another oppressed group? Really? Beating down an innocent elderly Sikh man to rob him is a hate crime, as well as dozens of acts of terrorism we witness on a daily basis. Here are 25 people I'd call a terrorist, and none of them are a 71-year-old Sikh man.

1. Donald Trump and his minion supporters.

A President who doesn't know he is the President of the U.S Virgin Islands, who tells his own Puerto Rican citizens that they are on their own to rebuild after a natural disaster, and who thinks human beings can be "illegal," and puts their children in cages, is number one on my terrorist watch list, and same goes for every single one of this evil-spawn supporters.

2. Nikolas Cruz (The Stoneman Marjory Douglass Shooter).

...and every other "misunderstood," "good kid," "bullied," "mentally ill" white boy who shot up a school, as opposed to just, you know, dealing with it in a healthy way, like everyone "bullied" who isn't a white male.

3. Property Managers.

Because they are absolute crooks who charge only respond to you when they are tricking you into renting out their rat and roach infested condo, then ignore you while they stalk your guests, and wait for your grass to grow half an inch so they can charge you $500 for an unauthorized tenant and property damage. Then you're just thanking God your lease is up and you don't have to deal with a leaky ceiling, they hold on to your deposit and charge you $200 for towel bars you never had, a $125 painting fee for a chip in a wall, a 100 dollar cleaning fee and a $50 solid waste removal fee for the imaginary trash they found left behind.

4. George Zimmerman.

For murdering an innocent child. And anyone who is still claiming to this day that he acted out of "self-defense" can choke on a crusty toenail and stop terrorizing Black people.

5. Johannes Mehserle, Daniel Pantaleo, Timothy Loehmann.

and a long list of shitty police officers who find pleasure in murdering black people, as well as the ones who condone, and/or do nothing to stop it. And because it's politically correct to say, "but there are some good cops," because no one seems to realize how sad that statement, in fact, is, I'll just say that the good cops are the ones who have squeaky clean records, don't abuse their power and do what they can to get bad cops kicked off the force and in prison. When you find one of those cops, tell them I said, they're one of the "good ones."

6. The Walmart manager that decides only 3 lanes need to be open.

But I guess when you're a corporation who treats your underpaid employees like cattle, it's easy to do the same to your customers.

7. Mechanics.

Explain to me how I take my car in for a simple oil change and come out needing 4 new tires, a new air filter, and a new head gasket?

8. People who walk into restaurants 5 minutes before it closes.

It's disrespectful af. If the kitchen closes at 10, the kitchen closes at 10! No, nobody wants to stay longer to make your meal. No, it isn't just you and it isn't just this one time. Yes, it is a big deal. Yes, you can expect your food to be half-assed.

9. My 12th grade English teacher who called me ugly.

...in front of the entire class. Ms. Nancy Aleandre, you look like a jelly bean, and I bet those knees are still ashy!

10. My mom when I forgot to take meat out of the freezer.

But to be fair, as an adult, I see why my mom would get so annoyed. Oops.

11. Harvey Weinstein, Roy Moore, R. Kelly . . .

every man who has sexually assaulted someone, and every man who had kept quiet knowing their home-boy was sexually assaulting someone. Similar to the cop thing, I should probably add, but "ThErE ArE sOme GoOd MeN oUt ThErE."

12. Neo-Nazi's.

And every white nationalist hate group. And before someone says. "well, what about Black Lives Matter." *inhale* "exhale" Black Lives Matter is not a hate group, you just hate black lives. See the difference?

13. The Kardashians.

...and Jenners.

14. Men who catcall.


15. Lil' Kim's makeup artist.

No one should walk out of their house looking like a surprised ghost.

16. White women with cell phones.

Not all of them. Just the BBQ Becky's and the Permit Patty's of the world. It takes a special type of person to play with the life of a child or to frighten a child with the chance of actual death, which is exactly what Permit Patty was doing when she told a little black girl selling water that she was gonna' stick the police on her.

17. Businesses that aren't wheelchair accessible.

Does it really need to be explained that less-able-bodied people need to get around and be from day-to-day as well? How do you forget an entire sub-group of people (or I'll speak in terms of capitalism), a sub-group of paying customers when designing plans for your businesses?

18. Billionaires.

And more specifically the ones who refuse to give back to their communities, the communities that allowed them to have what they have in the first damn place.

19. I.C.E agents.


20. Anyone mommy-shaming breastfeeding moms.

Not a mom yet, but when I am, I'm whipping it out whenever why my child is hungry, and IDGAF. My breasts are for me and my child, not you and your perverted mind, so if you're bothered, go find Jesus.

21. Rachel Dolezal.

A white woman who loves black women so much is great and all, but um, no. Trans-racial is not a thing, bo. This is disrespectful.

22. Rich Chigga.

The epitome of loving black culture, but not black people. The reason an Asian man would appropriate hip-hop culture and then name himself a word used to rip the humanity from an entire race of people as they were being beaten, shackled and slaved.

23. Culture vultures.

Such as the Kardashians, the Jenner, Rich Chigga and every other non-black person who "appreciates" black culture, while simultaneously ghettoizing and demonizing black people as they stand by and watch black communities fall victim to capitalism, corrupt government, and tilted criminal justice as they stand back and use their privilege, power, money, and celebrity to save the damn whales.

24. Unilever

For knowingly poisoning hundreds of its Indian Factory workers with mercury and every corporation who values their dollar over the lives of those working for them.

25. The entire beauty industry.

Because someone decided that there was a beauty standard that only 5 people naturally fit into, and then used false advertising to brainwash millions of women into thinking they're ugly and for leading millions of women of color into believing that their race was inferior because the only women in their ads being called beautiful were white.

A terrorist is a loose term and American's have a bad habit of placing that name onto brown people who's religions they don't understand. Lets maybe try a bit of self-reflection.

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

Ranking Every David Lynch Film - A Surrealist's Dream

Open your heart to some of the most mind-melting films ever produced.


Quick cuts of color and close ups are superimposed upon black and white images. A droning soundtrack from Angelo Badalamenti, complete with low hums and an ever looming sense of dread. Uncomfortably long takes. Harry Dean Stanton shows up for a couple minutes. If any of these are present in the film you are screening, then you're probably watching something from the mind of David Lynch.

Let's just get this out of the way - I am a huge David Lynch fan; his films are partially what gave me the drive and motivation to pursue filmmaking as a career. There is just something mystical and thought provoking about his films that I cannot find anywhere else. I have seen all of his works multiple times now, and with each viewing I always discover something new or appreciate things that I never gave much thought before.

Ranking his cinema portfolio was not an easy thing to do. I restructured this list four times and re-watched a handful of his movies just for this list. On any given day of the week I could still probably change this list up. But as of now, this is how I rank his films.

ALSO! This list has to be published with an ascending order (1-10) as opposed to descending order (10-1). In other words, number one is the worst and number ten is the best. With that being said, on to the list!

1. "Dune" (1984)


This is the only film I believe that Lynch has done that is truly bad. Why he was hired on to do a science fiction epic will forever be a mystery to me. Dune is a wonderfully hot, surreal mess of a film. While I have not read the book, I have heard this film strays so far away from the original source material it's laughable. It just never flows well as a narrative. Nothing feels as though it has any impact in the story.

Despite actor Kyle MacLachlan doing an excellent job in the main role, he couldn't salvage this mess of a film. To be fair though, Lynch never had final cut privileges. Supposedly, the studio massacred what he had shot originally to make it all more "consumable" for a general audience. While that may be true, it doesn't make the movie any more worth a watch.

2. "The Straight Story" (1999)


Don't get me wrong, I really do enjoy The Straight Story. Like if you told me it was your favorite Lynch film, I'd be happy! The reason why this is so high on my list is because of how safe and conventional it is as a whole.

It's the most straight and easily digestible film Lynch has directed, which is fine! It's just missing everything that I love and adore in a Lynch film. It's a well executed and emotional movie - it's just not something I come back to often.

3. "Wild at Heart" (1990)


Wild at Heart might be the film you are most familiar with if you have never heard of Lynch before because it has Nicholas Cage in it. Again, I think this is a great movie. Hell, it won the Palm d;Or at Cannes in 1990. It's just one of the movies I find myself not wanting to re-watch as frequently as others.

The film is almost like a dark comedy, if I were to place into a sub-genre. It's a beautifully shot film with plenty of bizarre imagery to keep you thinking about it. This would be a good starting off point for entering into Lynch's filmography, if I'm being honest.

4. "The Elephant Man" (1980)


One of Lynch's most emotionally driven films, The Elephant Man is a biopic about John Merrick, a man with a severely deformed face and the struggles he faced in the Victorian era.

It's a movie about a guy who just wants to be treated as an equal. It feels like an incredibly sincere movie. Like, you really feel the pain and misery that the protagonist is experiencing. Definitely one you should watch at least once in your life.

5. "Lost Highway" (1997)


Here we go. Now we are getting into territory where I could go either way on this ranking. Number six goes to the surrealist-horror cult classic Lost Highway. This film demands multiple viewings to have a full understanding of what the hell is happening. I dare you to watch this film once and come to me with a clear and concise plot synopsis. I don't think you could do it.

It's a neo-noir surrealist horror classic that is about a man convicted of murdering his wife as he is transforming into another person in a parallel reality. That's the only way I could sum it up into one sentence. If you like feeling dread, paranoia, and a sense of existentialism, Lost Highway might be the perfect film for a lonely Friday night.

6. "Blue Velvet "(1986)


You HAVE to have heard of Blue Velvet. Regarded by many to be one of the best films of the 80's, Blue Velvet is a mesmerizing, dreamy, neo-noir film that will stick with you long after the credits roll. Without giving away much of the plot, the films main focus is one small-town innocence and how it may not all be sunshine and roses.

The thing that disturbs me the most about Blue Velvet is the lack of morality. It makes you feel angry and disgusted at the antagonist and some of the things that he does. The haunting, terrifying, emotionless things he does in this film. It's as if he crawls into your mind and tears you apart. And I love every second of it.

7. "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me"


This is an insanely divisive film; you either love it, or you hate it. I'm on the side of loving it (almost). Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me is a prequel (but also sequel) to the hit early 90's television show Twin Peaks. Fans who were coming into this movie thinking it would have the same campy and cozy vibes of the show were understandably disappointed.

FWWM explores the more dark and complex side to the show that was never fully realized because of studio restrictions. I honestly think this is the most horrifying Lynch film because of the context. If you have seen the original show (which you NEED to watch before this) and The Return, this film is one-thousand percent better in terms of horror.

I'm hesitant to say it's his best work, but I think it is far better than what some critics and fans think. It's a darker, more rich take on Twin Peaks. And I love it.

8. "Inland Empire" (2006)


A woman in trouble. Lynch's description is the best you're going to get out of me in terms of plot regarding Inland Empire. Because frankly? I still have no idea what it's truly about. As of now, this is his last feature length directorial outing. But my God, did he go out with a bang. This is a three hour experimental horror film that feels like a nightmare.

Many people think it's too much for them to handle, and in some areas I could see where they are coming from with that. You really have to be in a certain mood to really sit down and take this onslaught of cinema in. It's as if Lynch is slowly guiding you from rabbit hole to rabbit hole, until he suddenly disappears and you are left alone to try and figure out the exit. This is truly an experience to be had. Lock your door, shut the blinds, crank the sound, and open your mind.

9. "Mulholland Drive" (2001)


Confession time! I wasn't too hot on Mulholland Drive the first time I watched it. After hearing from so many people how good and bizarre it was, I had my expectations high. Maybe a little too high. I thought it was simply okay. However, it wasn't until I watched it twice more recently that I realized it's brilliance.

You see, the main thing that is supposed to make you lose your mind is the puzzle throughout the film. There are hundreds of articles and fan-theories online about what actually happened that are all excellent and interesting to read. I have my own dumb interpretation of the plot, as I'm sure you do if you watch the film.

Thinking about it more though, the puzzle isn't the most interesting thing to me. You see, it's the manipulation that Lynch implements.

Lynch manipulates the audience (and main characters) in such a unique and emotional way that I haven't seen it done in any other film or artistic medium. He really got me thinking about art and the concept of cinema itself - we are so emotionally invested in make-believe characters and scenarios.

We know they don't exist, we know what's happening on screen isn't really happening, we know that everything will be fine for the people involved with the film. But why do we get so invested? Why? Well, that's what art is.

And in turn, that's what cinema is. The artist (or director) taps into their audiences most primal and emotional feelings and plays with them, bending them to their will.

Then all of a sudden, poof! Something happens and we, the audience, are left with our mouths agape and hearts hollowed out. This film is an emotional and psychological roller-coaster that I will gladly get in line for again and again. I agree with the people that say this is going to go down as one of the most important films of the 21st century. What a phenomenal experience. Please, watch this movie. You owe it to yourself.

10. "Eraserhead" (1977)


The one that began it all. Eraserhead. This film helped to usher in the modern aesthetic usage of surrealism in film, and it's impossible to say just how influential this has been on the industry as a whole. This is David Lynch's debut as a feature filmmaker. He wrote, directed, and produced this film all under a scholarship he received from the American Film Institute. I do not want to give ANYTHING away regarding plot for this film. Go in as blind as possible.

Saying Eraserhead is a technical marvel is an understatement. The horrific imagery combined with the innovative and elaborate sound design builds an atmosphere full of dread and desolation that I have never felt with another film. It's a truly visceral and draining experience, and I love every second of this.

While I do think that Mulholland Drive is Lynch's magnum opus, I have a special connection with Eraserhead. It's difficult for me to exactly describe why though. Find a way to watch this with the best sound setup you can afford. This is truly a life-changing film for me, and I will forever be grateful for it.
