  1. It is a long video. What are the important points that you got from it? Is there a small section you can point me to that is a must see?

  2. I am about ten minutes in.   After the six-minute mark he starts to talk about Antifa experience, and immediately, at the seven-minute mark, he gets to “it’s fun as heck.”   He follows that up by saying low-level street violence is such an emotional charge that the politics of it really isn’t important.

    MJBubba hit a super-interesting one.  Scott Adams pointed it out around 7:00, that it’s a fun, exhilarating thing for young men to do.  In this, it’s similar to tons of Christian groups, encouraging their young men to be active, strong, and masculine.  Fortunately the Christian groups channel this much more productively!

    It’s also interesting when he talks about how many of them take MMA training.  I imagine a lot of the sneering people who call them soyboys would not have the easiest time taking them on.

    Somewhere later (timecode tbd?  but it’s worth watching the whole thing), he poses the question, something like: “If you knew there were real Nazis taking real Jews to be executed, what would you do?  Avert your eyes and go about your business?  Hold a peaceful protest as they were driven away? Or take up arms and fight against them?”

    Pardon me  but isn’t that an oxymoron?

    That’s a frequent response in other circles when “thoughtful, intelligent Yankees” are mentioned.

    It seems it’s very difficult for humans to recognize positive aspects in those we disagree with.  They must be stopped by any means necessary! hmmm…
