Europeans being raided, enslaved, murdered, and conquered for 500 years by medieval era Muslims (Moors) and other threats
Your homelands suffer from destitute poverty because of the constant sea raids destroying naval trade and transport routes.
Byzantium is begging for help, southern France is easy picking for slavers, Spain is conquered (300 thousand women raped/enslaved) and France is invaded, churches are burned and nuns are raped en masse in conquered cities, southern Italy and Sicily live in fear.
Call upon nobles, peasants, the poor and rich alike to put an end to centuries of oppression and evil and retake the Holy Lands that are dear to you.
Sell your lands, your estate, your everything to buy armor, a sword, and enough food to make it halfway across the world, knowing you won’t return but believe in the Cause of Justice.
Lose millions of good men for over a hundred years in perpetual war.
Roughly a thousand years later, your descendants look upon you as the evil aggressor against a supposedly innocent people and they view your faith which you hold so near to your heart as a force of incomparable hatred and malice.
THEN FAST FORWARD ITS THE FOURTH CRUSADE THE BIG OL CATHOLICS COME DOWN AND SACK CONSTANTINOPLE ESSENTIALLY CRIPPLING THE GREATEST CHRISTIAN EMPIRE OF ALL TIME WHICH IS RIGHT NEXT TO MUSLIM LANDS FORCING THEM TO GET REKT UNTIL THE HOLY EMPIRE FALLS.
I didn’t even have to guess what today’s sketch dailies topic would be. So here’s my tribute I drew for a man who was so full of laughter and love. I really did cry over his loss. Aladdin was one of the films I knew him best for since I grew up with it, along with so many of his other roles. Again, RIP Robin, I’m so sorry you had so much sadness in your life, but I hope that you are in a better place, laughing like you always did for the world.
I don’t usually post Heydrich photos, mainly because his fan girls are fucked up cunts that I try to avoid ( please don’t follow me, I hate you) but this photo is cute as pie. He looks quite nice when he isn’t dressed as a woman.
