Full Text on Storify: How US Imperialism Created ISIS

Correction: ISIS was not a subsidiary of Al Qaeda, although there were links between the groups which contributed to its rise before Al Qaeda disavowed ISIS. “ISIS grew out of the former Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), a jihadist militant umbrella group that is believed to have helped create the al-Nusra Front in mid-2011” (x). al-Nusra is al Qaeda’s official arm in Syria.

More Sources:

A short (and incomplete given the scale of US-propagated violence across the globe) account of the myriad ways in which US imperialism directly led to creation of ISIS. US imperialism is never the answer and the US-led coalition now will only destabilize the situation further and lead to even more violence and long term problems in the entire region.

H*34: Being a Feminist Killjoy

What is a feminist killjoy? Kari and Chuks discuss this idea coined by Sara Ahmed for this week’s episode. We start off by discussing a terrible op-ed in The Age, an Australian newspaper, that demonizes the women caught in the Hollywood nude photo privacy breach. Then, onto anonymous questions about the APIA designation in American racial politics and further commentary on the ALS ice bucket challenge.

takethethirdoption: Hey Chuks, are you going to do more reviews of media (video games, songs, movies, TV shows) soon? I really enjoy reading your commentary on them.

Yes, I love to do reviews of music videos especially, and the last one I reviewed was  Taylor Swift’s Racism & “Shake It Off” Video about a month ago. TV Shows are hard for me because I rarely watch TV period (not even on my computer) and there are so many episodes. I am definitely open to doing recently released movies and video games in addition to music videos, though. When those come along, send a note to my inbox and I’ll try to check it out. Many times the reviews I write are prompted by a listener ask or tweet to me.
