There are still soldiers deep in the suck right now and horrible things like this actually do occur—and whether you like it or not, the issue of war crimes in the ongoing conflicts is a very real one. I think that it is not the fact that this picture is political, it is the fact that this picture is encouraging one side of a very controversial war.
If every time you saw Uncle-Sam he was under a Humvee, being killed, never winning, and always a bad guy. As has been said, if someone posted a photo of the same scene, but with GI Joes or space police and aliens, or knights and trolls, etc there would be no such discussion. With that said, I think where I come down is in full support of both blogging such a fantastic build, and the editorial disclaimer that comes with it. Even more for me, though, is the scene as a whole.
Further, assuming that the figure in a LEGO ninja headpiece is a terrorist or a combatant does not make someone a racist — it is one of two interpretive possibilities.
For everyone to assume that the minifig under the wheel has no weapon because one is not displayed is as silly as saying that because he appears Arab he must be a inwtructions. I submit that no matter who is under the tire, what the make of the vehicle is, what the minifig instrructions wearing: These consequences are not necessarily bad, but they do exist.
Yet it might not be very nice to view for the kids who also watch this blog.
Thanks for making me aware of my tone. Actually, let me find it for you: Now please everyone, can we get back to the awesome MOC rather than trying to invent some problem? Keeps people of the street or whatever environment fighting…. Diverse viewpoints are a good thing. Inwtructions it is a heroic act by a soldier saving dozens of lives from a terrorist. If this were part of a vignette or scene realistically depicting a battle, and a fig had been run over, I would have less of a problem.
Every one should try it. The builder of the MOC has been bumvee ready to discuss it calmly and intelligently. Nobody is saying terrorists feel bad about people not liking them.
Which, while true, has nothing to do with the question of whether or not the image was appropriate to make—or blog. That smile is insrructions a wince, so its all chill guys.
Yeah, I know that sounds all stupidly Picard of me, but I mean it.
I started writing my comment sometime before you started yours, and I finished after you posted yours. Fantastic Humvee though, with lots of instructlons. Also, what Catsy said. We have words for those kinds of people or that kind of behavior.
I think the image of what is supposed to be a Middle Eastern terrorist crushed under the wheel of a military vehicle while the soldier smiles and gives a thumbs up is sufficiently controversial that only a few would humved chide you for shying away from it.
Unless we intend to set the practices of fanatic murderers as the standard for our own conduct. If he had an RPG or something and the soldiers were mounted up, I think I would have just passed over it as a battle scene.
Again, I personally passed this over because I felt uncomfortable with what I was seeing in the photo and Tyler has since clarified that what I was seeing was not intendedbut the creation itself was worth blogging, and Nannan chose to go ahead and do so. There could be multiple interpretations of this. Regardless of how one feels about terrorism, asymmetrical warfare or the current conflicts, no one should act surprised that this image provokes a strong reaction.
Tyler has explained his literal meaning…. Woah, I totally missed the point of this picture. Beautiful MOC, wonderful instructions and generosity in making them. I think Catsy and Bunbrick really illustrated this well: The person being labelled or the person who labels.
BTW, awesome design and great instructions. Tell all your friends! The figure in question was used as a prop, to demonstrate the suspension. Who is a terrorist? That aside, a Nazi in that context would be a uniformed soldier. I think what makes this more volatile than brutality in, say, post-apoc or Star Wars or WWII scenes is the immediate, present-day relevance.
This is your blog and you can and should feel free to showcase what you will. It is also a cop-out: This is what racism is like for those on the receiving end, phrased in a way to reach the largest group of readers on this blog.
Bad guys wear black hats. It in fact took me a third look to figure out what was so offensive. Any claim of racism or anti-Islamism is ridiculous. Controversy aside, I’m glad they’re getting attention.
And as humbee second I want to bring up my opinion about the first picture of the two — the one where the Arabian minifig gets killed without any reason. Maybe it is an attack on an unarmed civilian. The US military has shown an extraordinary amount of compassion and friendliness in trying to win over local people in an effort to make removal of the terrorist organizations run as smoothly as possible.
