This blog is mostly about gaming, rugby, kinkshaming, hating both the BBC and the word queer, and taking the piss out of anglophiles, ~masc~ gay guys, vegans, atheists and libertarians. I also reblog a lot of food because food is good. pro-unselfconscious karaoke homosexuality, pro-cider, pro-early 2000s europop. Dealing with my internalised US-centrism one day at a time.
Aboriginal Petroglyphs Destroyed by Vandals Armed with Acid and a Drill
“To my absolute horror, I could see what kind of damage had been done…I just couldn’t believe it.”
“The vandals used a truck to get to the rock and suspects they used a power washer to remove the lichen covering the symbols before spraying acid on the paintings and drilling away the carvings with a rock bore or hammer drill.
“We have been violated, future generations have been robbed and the world has been deprived of the ancient knowledge contained within these artifacts,” Knowlton wrote in his report. “This urgent matter must follow a formal plan of action at all levels.””
I can’t even think of obscenities strong enough to convey how disgusted and horrified I am. I don’t have the words.
Who the fuck does something like this? WHO THE FUCK DOES THIS THAT DELIBERATELY?
What the fuck goes wrong in a person’s head and/or heart, such that they are so opposed to the notion of markers of cultural history that they will take the time and effort to specifically go out of their way to destroy it? Does not compute. Does not compute at all.
This has 66 notes.
A gifset of a woman cutting up some shoddily constructed mass-market books has over 7000, with graphic and horrible death threats.
Let that sink in, tumblr.
AT this point I am not even sorry. This world is going to shit and will fall to dust because we deserve it.
That is thousands of years of tradition of connection of culture , CONNECTED TO THE PLANET
TO THESE PEOPLE
and instead of thankingw hatever heavenly earthly being you know that we are even allowed access to the wonders of this creation?
LETS ACID SPRAY IT!!!
I hope one of em falls in said tank or drops it directly on their genitalia and dies.
I would like it if a case of festering oozing pustules covered the vandals bodies perhaps combined with an intense itching situation.
“Knowlton [Piikani First Nation] pointed out in his report that this is just the latest in a string of vandalized pictogram and petroglyph sites in Alberta and thinks someone is out to destroy evidence that could prove the Blackfoot First Nations had a written language before European migration.
“I suspect the link to this destruction is to nullify my long held claim that the Blackfoot had a written language before missionaries arrived, which could force archeologists to rewrite history,” Knowlton wrote in his report.
