Sign in here if you think Liam Neeson said nothing wrong.
This is not a trap.
I think he's a fucken idiot.
No wonder he diddnt get on the Jedi council
Liam recounts a long ago incident in which someone close to him was raped and he wanted revenge and his mind went to a biased and racist place. He then tells how he is ashamed of that but that he understands the primal nature of violence and revenge. He's not endorsing it. In fact he's talking about the very primal response and his much more mature and civilized look at how wrong that response is.
Imo he said nothing wrong.
He didn't glorify, justify, or anything... He says, "wtf happened to me in that rage?!?!"
Jealous of this guy imo
Fuck Lily Allen. Diddnt read her bullshit yet but she is the biggest cunt whore mongaloid on earth. Bar none
Read it or shut it dork
I read it. Now double my statement. She is a preposterous dipshit who should be thrown into lava
I feel like people arent getting that Liam stated the wrongness in his response that the response was directed in an ignorant and primal way at a group by an individual. I think she doesn't get that in Europe, responding that you're gonna go hunt a Brit/Romanian/etc. might very well be an out group. Such group blame is common and it seems strange to assume ethnic and racial tensions in Europe just disappear if the person isnt black. Also, that she would be understanding of his rage and shame if he was hunting white pikeys but...
I believe Liam's response would have been the same...as long as it wasn't an north irish guy like him. The entire point is that we look for outgroups and punish collectively...and how wrong that is.
Revenge is never the Jedi way.
I learned this from Boyz n that hood
Lol is that a real quote
the craziest part of this story was that there was a black rapist in ireland in what I assume was the 70's, must have been pretty easy for cops to find a black rapist in ireland,conversely this probably got the second black man living in ireland in the 70's arrested by accident .
Holy fuck Twitter is garbage
learned something new. him walking around with a weapon makes this a little more disturbing.
a thick heavy stick or bar used as a weapon; a bludgeon.
hit (someone) on the head with a cosh.
It's super disturbing. It's bad behavior. It's racist thoughts. It's also temporary rage related to a personal violence, not justified or supported by the guy a long time later.
A black guy wanting to kill white cops then saying the same stuff. "Wtf was I doing. But I get why people seek revenge and that primal response."
Anyone...Id totally get it.
In the moment I think you'd have to tell the person they are wrong, they are being racist, etc. If he had acted on it he'd have to go to jail.
Later? When that person is confronting their own thoughts speaking how they are wrong? Then we are going to jump up and down at him being a racist forever while he says his thoughts were wrong?
I'm a bit surprised that Neeson wasn't smart enough to know this wouldn't be received well.
We have politicians getting crucified for dressing up in blackface back in the 70s. Neeson is admitting to having intentions to commit a hate crime against any black guy that looked at him the wrong way. Way worse, imo.
Chiropractic medicine would have fixed him
