Quotes: Un-Person

Nothing shall remain!
Neither memory nor name!
It will be as though
You never, ever lived!
— "Hand of Doom", Manowar

People simply disappeared, always during the night. Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated: vaporized was the usual word.

All memory of your existence will be wiped from reality. You will die, and no one will mourn.

There will be no glory in your sacrifice. I will erase even the memory of Sparta from the histories! Every piece of Greek parchment shall be burned. Every Greek historian, and every scribe shall have their eyes pulled out, and their tongues cut from their mouths. Why, uttering the very name of Sparta, or Leonidas, will be punishable by death! The world will never know you existed at all!
Xerxes, 300

They came. They trundled their belongings into the city. They settled. They took hold. They prospered in business, science, education, the arts. They came with nothing. Nothing. And they flourished. For six centuries there has been a Jewish Krakow. Think about that. By this evening those six centuries are a rumor. They never happened. Today is history.
Amon Goeth, Schindler's List

Did you ever stop to think that eventually there's a point where your name gets mentioned for the very last time? Well, here it is. I'm going to kill you.
GLaDOS, Portal

When a spy gets fired, he doesn't get a call from the lady in HR and a gold watch. They cut him off. They make sure he can never work again. They can't take away his skills or what's in his head, so they take away the resources that allow him to function. They burn him.
Michael, Burn Notice

Tut, tut, tut. The slightest accident in this stage of the proceedings and we'd all reverse instantly into antimatter. Blasted out to the other side of the universe, as a flash of electromagnetic radiation. We'll all become unpeople, undoing unthings untogether. Fascinating.
— The Third Doctor, Doctor Who, "The Mutants"

Let the name of Moses be stricken from every book and tablet, stricken from all pylons and obelisks, stricken from every monument of Egypt. Let the name of Moses be unheard and unspoken, erased from the memory of men for all time.
Pharaoh Sethi, The Ten Commandments

"We do not pile the skulls of our enemies, nor make them into ornaments. We grind them into dust. We leave nothing for their families to weep over, nothing for their descendants to honor."
Anafenza, Khan of the Abzan, Magic: The Gathering

Real Life

Twenty years ago, there was an academic study or the five hundred truly great novelists since the Second War. I was not in their company. I had slid down the page to a footnote, where I am described as a sort of Lucifer who turned his back on 'modernism,' a movement that had ended, I had always thought, in the year of my birth. During the fifties, a university student told me that when he had wanted to write a dissertation on me, he had been warned that he would be thought a fairy and that no university would ever hire him.
Gore Vidal, Palimpsest

WWE announced this morning that they are done with barbecued piece of gristle Hulk Hogan because of a leaked transcript where he uses his deep fried mouth slit to shit out the n-word a bunch of times. The WWEs website is now 40% less orange, because they have already erased every sign of Hulk Hogan from it.
Michael K., "So whatcha gonna do when the Hulkster runs racist on you? WWE: Um, fire you."

Ugh. Even when hes nothing but a solid-white blob with a question mark over his face, Josh Duggar still manages to give me the creeps.

If your party can run the nation for eight years and then have a national convention and not invite Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Karl Rove or Tom DeLay... you're not a political movement, you're the witness protection program.
Bill Maher, Real Time with Bill Maher, on the 2012 Republican national convention
