This statement is whimsical because Ingrid Bergman, who stars in Casablanca, is a woman and looks nothing like Harpo Marx, who is one of the male leads in A Night in Casablanca. In addition, Marx addresses Harry Warner saying, “As for you, Harry, you probably sign your checks, sure in the belief that you are the first Harry of all time and that all other Harrys are imposters” (26-27). With this statement, Marx points out the illogicality behind the claim that a name can be owned. Marx’s humorous arguments illuminate to the audience just how petty the Warner Brothers’ threat is while most likely embarrassing the recipients of the letter. Ultimately, Marx’s use of pathos, allusions, and humor strengthen his argument and fortify his connection with the audience.
In Jill Stein’s response to the fifth question, “Where do you stand on NDAA Section 1021?” (2012 Third Party Presidential Debate, 2012, 1:01:32-1:01:38), she clearly used vocalics, “vocal characteristics we use to communicate nonverbal messages” (McCornack, 2013, p. 233), when she stated the following, “It’s an outrage that 1021 NDAA was ever passed to start with. It’s an incredible betrayal of our civil liberties that the president has assumed dictatorial rights to put us in prison at his pleasure without charge or without trial” (2012 Third Party Presidential Debate, 2012, 1:01:43-1:02:07). When she first started speaking, the volume in her voice increased and you could tell that she was upset that this had ever passed. The way that she was speaking and her body language had clearly changed from her pervious responses to other questions and it
She gives a brief background of her situation, by being arrested for voting in the last presidential election and fined. “I not only committed no crime, but, instead, simply exercised my citizen's rights, guaranteed to me and all United States citizens by the National Constitution,” she quoted in her first sentence making the question audiences mind set if they did agree with the authority when she was arrested. She was just exercising her right to vote under the constitution. In her third paragraph she says, “It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union. And we formed it.” She emphasizes on the word “we.” To make the audience realize the “we” means everyone together, every men and women together.
It is said from the beginning to stay away from her because only bad circumstances will come out of it. Curley’s wife was talking to Lennie how her life could have been a lot better; “I tell ya I could of went with shows” (Steinbeck 78). Not much before she married Lennie, Curley’s wife could have been an actress and lived a very rich and successful life. There was a guy in the shows that told Curley’s wife that she is an amazing actress and could be in the shows. She never gets a letter from the guy in the shows so she ends up marrying Curley; “I couldn’t get nowhere or make nothin of myself… so I married Curley” (Steinbeck 88).
The difference between a winner and loser is emphasised when Olive tries to impersonate a winner of an “American beauty pageant” while watching her on television. Rather than being tall and graceful, Olive is obese and short wearing oversized glasses foreshadowing the outcome of Olive entering a beauty contest. However, according to her grandfather Edwin’s theory of winners and losers, Olive “is not a loser”, as in his definition, “a real loser is someone who's so afraid of not winning, that they don't even try”. Hence the idea of trying to win suggests the importance of the journey towards such a goal. As indicated in Ithaka, overcoming the obstacles along the way is the aspect of a journey that develops individuals to the point they are able to either achieve their goal, or feel happy to walk away from it.
Aarushi Agrawal Ms. Stuart Lit/Writing Period 6 1 April 2018 Gender Roles: The award-winning novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde expresses the thought, “My dear boy, no woman is a genius. Women are a decorative sex. They never have anything to say, but they say it charmingly.” We have all either heard, read, or seen acts of sexism, whether you be a man or a woman. Every act of bias displayed affects one in both large and small ways, influencing and changing how one views the world. The play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, is no different in terms of displaying this bias.
The Republican Party often does not want stricter gun laws because the problem at hand is not the gun itself, but the individual wielding the gun. The fight for gun control has been a never-ending battle in recent years amongst the Republican and Democratic Party. How the media portrays gun control has a lot to do with how people view guns and the gun laws at hand; for example, CNN and Fox news are best known for having completely different views and reporting styles. In a CNN article titled “NRA chief accuses Democrats of pushing ‘socialist’ agenda in the wake of the Florida shooting” written by Lauren Fox it discusses the tension between the NRA and Democrats when it comes to gun control. (Fox, 2018) The NRA accused Democrats of trying to take away guns from gun owners after a speech that was delivered only a week after the Florida shooting.
There were struggles and many obstacles for the Ottoman Empire, but it was difficult to defeat them. There were tremendous Sultans with many wives who inspired and helped in the success of the Ottoman Empire but also in the collapse. In no other Empire were Women as free and uncontrolled than the Ottoman Empire. Many Women abused their position and was a cause in the downfall of the Ottoman Empire. The women’s
Trump has encouraged mainly his supporters to act out vocally and physically which is becoming increasingly concerning. A president is supposed to be a authoritative figure whom stops racism instead of spreading it. However, the president has far lower power than imagined. It is vital that the state intervene in situations like so to prevent such racism by implementing new laws that correspond with the every growing power of social media and advertisements. President Trump is utterly disliked by a huge number of people worldwide, there has also been a petition sign by thirty thousand Irish people voting against his visit to
Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech he stated “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of it’s creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” Many people have been judged for their sexual orientation including a woman named Rose Saxe who was taught that being homosexual is “shameful, disgusting, and deviant.”Another way injustice is still being shown today is discriminating a person because if one’s gender. On July 26, 2017 current U.S. President Donald Trump, announced that transgenders could no longer serve in the military because American forces could not support the “tremendous medical costs and disruption” of the service members. In Dr. King’s speech he proclaims that he dreams of justice for everyone. The discrimination that is taking place in this nation does not portray the gift of equality in which everyone has been
The last website that was analyzed was the social media outlet called tumblr, which often has portrays and displays a lot of incorrect and uneducated information, which is the ideal location to find biases. Tumblr account holders basically tore Trump to shreds. They took quotes and information from is statements and press releases and turned his words against him, making him look arrogant and dumb. Another topic that was highlight many times, was Bernie Sander’s reaction and claims to Trump’s campaign, stating that, “I [Bernie Sanders] look forward to beating Donald Trump – I would enjoy that race very, very much”. Many of these claims and slanderous statements directed at Trump were mainly based on opinion and very little fact, but all of these posts represent people 's reactions to Trump’s statements from previous days, which are well known to be offensive and
Trump can tell it to black voters like no other presidential candidate has ever dared say. Being intrepid is what Republicans should have been ever since they won control of the Congress. But like the entire political class, they are terrified to run counter to the restraining politically correct culture. This same mentality affects so many black leaders as they know all too well that straying from the Democratic plantation, or showing any signs of conducting yourself like a conservative while black is an offense deserving of instant disrepute, an Uncle Tom, a sellout to the man. Too many still subscribe to such nonsense as it remains the most arresting Democratic sales
Amekeco Brooks Jr. The 2016 election was driven by the fear, nostalgia, and bias of the American people, but was it rigged? The President-elect, Donald Trump, felt the election was rigged against him. That idea is nothing more than a baseless theory of Mr. Trump. To rig an election would be no easy task and mistakes are rarely made.
This fact, coupled with the GOP attacks on Trump, reveal a Republican party that is embracing a voting block that ignorantly or knowingly supports the immoralities of the left. The GOP will never capture even a luke-warm percentage of the Hispanic vote regardless of all the shameful pandering and treasonous affiliations with the left. Willful ignorance combined with the corruption of money and power have joined to form a party no longer in touch with the constituents responsible for their political appointments. Gone are the days of Reagan conservatism. However, a light has flickered to life at the end of the tunnel with Trump 's continued success.
The second example from the article was, “The Russian-style domination of the press came only a few hours after the president told CPAC: “I love the First Amendment; nobody loves it better than me. Nobody.’” (Dowd) This example shows that even within hours Trump can contradict himself, by ridiculing the media for what they say and then claiming he is a firm believer in the First Amendment. The use of irony and Trump contradicting himself creates an image of someone who is not true to his word and therefore not the best fit to be
