    I think when a bunch of men invade your town armed and armored, people are gonna continue to overreact. Bullying? Come into my town armed and people may react the same.

      Neither the cowardly middle nor the radical fringe are doing anything that matters. Violence in the streets is not going to affect Wall Street and the "financiers" involved in the Panama Papers. Corruption that siphons wealth in "trickle-up" corporate welfare that avoids taxes is never addressed in any substantial way. Oligarchs use plutocracy to make the populace believe that their vote counts in a two-party system heavily influenced by lobbyists. The real problem is that government has become the puppet of the corporations. Here is a good break down of what happened:

        The extreme left and right of politics are such fucking cancer. neo nazies and antifa are demons that only wish harm on the world.

            7:38 I agree with Eric 100% as a centrist. The center isnt pulling its weight to try and stop this nonsense and instead are letting at most 20% of the population drive the car straight towards a cliff. The simple fact moderates havent voted out idealogs who are actively advocating for taking away our rights in public for everyone to hear is nothing short of cowardly

              SOrry Disagree with Eric. THe Fringe on the right is barely there. And Moderate republicans like myself DENONUCE them Constantly as do most conservtaives.... RARELY do you see a person on the left DENOUNCING antifa....its rare.

                Im not scared of either wing of politics. However I see far more violence, attacks and news about Antifa and the far left.

                Antifa and proud boys? Both are idiots. Simply put.. One group loves the West, the other group hates the west. I love the West sooo yeah.. awkward,

                I hate to see Antifa burning national flags it instantly makes me dislike them, dressed in ball black hiding their faces, needing to use weapons, flying Soviet flags, how can anyone defend them.

                      50 people killed by right wing terrorist movements
                      24 people killed by ICE
                      0 people killed by antifa
                      I don't condone violence but looking at the numbers the problem is somewhere else

                        The American people have been easily ruled through their propaganda that the pen is mightier than the sword. They virtually get away with murder, and all we do is to talk about it, which is ineffective since the masters of propaganda, always publish a contradicting account. If we would review history and apply those lessons of the past, then the pen will be thrown down in disgust and the sword wielded in the heat of passion. A recurrence to history would edify our minds and show us that the European countries solved their problems only by use of force. So far, they have escaped the sword, when the only reprisal is some periodical of no repute, or some pamphlet with limited circulation. Our pen is no match for theirs, but their constant fear is that we may open our eyes and learn that no change was ever brought about with a pen. History has been written in blood, not with ink. No letter, editorial or book has ever rallied the people or stopped tyranny. They understand this principle and are continually propagandizing the people to write letters to the President, to Congress and to their local media. They are safe to continually exploit, intimidate and disenfranchise Americans as long as we are preoccupied with the illusion of educating the masses through printed material. Woe be unto them if we ever see the futility of it, lay down the pen and employ the sword. . . But I could be wrong. . .

                          Difference between far left and far right is christianity. Far left have no moral compass and have murdered over 100 million people in the 20th century. Far right may be better at violence but they stop short of genocide.

                              This guy and his brother helped open this box, they are just upset the poison came out loud enough for society to notice and want to close it rather then slowly trickle out ultimately leading to the same future minus the resistance .

                                  YEP im republican and i hate that bullshit. Eric Weinstein is smart but talking out of his ass here, I hope to GOD he isnt one of those "the parties switched sides" bullshit. No 5 Dixiecrats democrats became republcan... Thats it. One was Strom thurmand forget the other ones. The morals and values for the party remained the same.

                                  Good on you Eric, for trying to break this down fairly and really analyse what's going on. Rogan is just making guesses and assumptions with no evidence. I'm so sick of that, it doesn't help at all. Rogan just cut-off Weinstein coz he didn't want to see it clearly...he likes his own version better. "It's not Tiki torches we need to worry about"?!?! WTF, they ended up killing a girl with a car.....Do you forget that Rogan???? A little bit more violent than the Ngo issue, dontcha think?????!?!!??!?! Sheez.

                                    People defending the Antifa fake news narrative, must carefully "craft a context" and tiptoe around what they say. When you're going to state all the facts surrounding an incident, you can simply state them. You don't need to go ever-so-carefully tiptoeing around it. Joe Rogan stays conveniently dumb. By the way I have several relatives in Portland, and I've lived there personally. Never once did I encounter any "Antifa" protest downtown or anywhere, or any such disruption. This is all staged bullshit, designed to prop up a totally fake boogeyman. Joe even admits it (or let it slip 5:53). And then watch Rogan try skirt and flee the subject 11:11.

                                      Ooooooh what the phuk! antifa punks need to be met with equal opposition and that faggit-assed governor/police commisioner needs to step the phuk down and enable the system to work and regain order... I say, if it's wearing all black and/or dawns a facial covering, phukin shoot it before it causes harm... Would make a lot of parents very happy that their basement spaces are once again available for use (post extermination)....

                                              that seriously has me thinking on Eric's point. Our apathy has put off confrontation, and now our apathy has festered into these fringe movements who now do the dirty work of our....socio-political discourse? (not sure the phrase/term here) because we haven't dealt with it in a healthy way...gee that sounds awfully familiar for *other* reasons as well. Sorry humanity but I'm gonna sit this one out. Have fun everyone

                                                Antifa have committed 0 murders.

                                                Rightwing groups commit an average of 300 murders a year in the United States.

                                                FBI crime statistics (you know those same ones racists love to site about 54% of all murders in the USA being committed by black men) say that 73% of all domestic terrorism is rightwing in nature.

                                                          Democrats haven’t had the moral high ground since the 60s and as much as people hate Trump, imagine a country where Hilary was President, utter chaos. She couldn’t even protect her people as Sec State when she had access to the full might of the IS military, you think riots in Portage are bad, the cities of the West and East coast would be burning and yes by the same people who are supposedly against Trump and facisim-show me a time where they truly showed up and defended the people from facisim as opposed to attacking lone defenseless people and destroying property. ANTIFA isn’t a result of Trump it’s the result of the West and NW USA’s desire to be PC gone awry. People in black with masks attacking anyone who they disagreed with and mind you this is a mostly white male violent group if they wore white they’d be seen as the KKK via their actions and violence THE DIFFERENCE is the state would crush that shit andinstead it’s done nothing. 2 years ago race meant nothing to me and most white people and now a fast growing number of people from all political views know that as middle class white Americans we now have a target and a slanted negative view towards us for no reason what so ever. If you said slavery you have already shown what a fool you are. And if that’s the case what does Rome owe the world in reparations or how many trillions would Egypt owe Israel and all Jews...!?!?

Now-adays Republicans tend to be working class people who want to be left alone and earn a living as best they can. Right or wrong, working class Republicans tend to believe that adherence to the USA Bill of Rights offers the best foundation for them to thrive.

I'm pro union, believe in live and let live. I don't want religion in the government. But, these idiots do not represent me or anyone I know. I'm not sympathetic to them. Take the cameras off of them

When many support Antifa and their violence and won't call them out then they cosign on it all. It's like when the religious right captured the GOP back in the late 80's and 90's, only worse.
