I just find it hilarious that people are reading so far into this. We never censor how a builder chooses to present their LEGO creation. Even more for me, though, is the scene as a whole. That aside, a Nazi in that context would be a uniformed soldier. I fundamentally take issue with the assumption that this minifug is a terrorist. This is clearly a terrorist, as indicated by the creator of the work. I understand it was meant to be lighthearted, but this really is indicative of a greater problem, namely the association of Muslims with terrorism and vice versa.
Humvee Instructions Part 1: A LEGO® creation by Ben Romeo :
The point is that the image depicts an unarmed person being intentionally crushed beneath the wheel of a military vehicle. Who is a terrorist? 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, instryctions the editorial disclaimer that comes with it. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. I figured it was a device, but I take issue with the intent of that device.
That and the fact that you managed to get realistic working doors into a mini-figure instructionz moc really shows that you can cram alot of small detail into a small moc.
There are still soldiers deep in the suck right now and horrible things like this actually do occur—and whether you like instructons or not, the issue of war crimes in the instrucrions conflicts is a very real one.
Yeah, I know that sounds all stupidly Picard of instructiojs, but I mean it. Those who control the media and the images are the people at the buttons.
Nobody is saying you need to feel terrible for terrorists. Either crop the picture or leave it be. Beautiful MOC, wonderful instructions and generosity in making them.
With class, rather than getting all resentful toward people like me who get our PC knickers in a twist. So tl;dr was only partially true. You might not like it. If, as others have said, it was obvious that the fig was an armed soldier, that would help. Assuming that this photo has nothing to do with military action in Iraq and Afghanistan would be ignoring the context.
It plays into too many of our prejudices. Tell all your friends! For, as I said before, this is a blog read insyructions wide and all kinds of people are reading it. This is a photograph, not a video. They look like everyone else until they unstructions boom.
Every one should try it. It is very well lsgo. Any resemblance to the Abu Ghraib photos was intended as an off-color, satirical joke. We have words for those kinds of people or that kind of behavior. Unless we intend to set the practices of fanatic murderers as the standard for our own conduct. Does being run over by American military hardware make a person a terrorist? I’m flat out embarrassed that people are bringing racism into this discussion at all. Nobody is saying terrorists feel bad about people not liking them.
There could be multiple interpretations of this.
Historical scenes are in the past, and the others are fiction with no connection to any present-day circumstances in the real world. How do you know this exactly? Nothing makes that minifig a terrorist. Actually, let me find it for you: This is your blog and you can and should feel free to instrhctions what you will.
However, I do humveee plenty bothered by the ignorance it has already brought out both here and on Flickr. This is always the hardest thing, it is easier to dismiss something as having no meaning when the images greatest message is not for you.
The guy in the above picture is neither uniformed nor a soldier. I started writing my comment sometime before you started yours, and I finished after you posted yours. Maybe it is an attack on an ijstructions civilian.
