And many minds were changed that day

Well, you updated the title for the year, I'll give you that.

Hold on let me use spirit speak.

I think both sides make valid points

The best part is the woman holding a sign that says "speak openly".

[–]enwongeegeefor 126 points127 points  (16 children)

nah you got it backwards....the girl showed up and immediately began screaming incoherently as soon as the first speaker got up on the stage to speak...she was trying to silence the speaker by screaming at them, so that sign very much speaks against what that girl was trying to do, which was silence someone else's opinion.

I mean realistically she doesn't give a shit about the cause she's fronting anyway...she's an attention whore and got that sweet sweet attention.

Yup, that shows exactly what she did.

The irony is her tantrum is definitely enabling the trump supporters...all she did was cement their belief that the "right are fucking nutballs." Good job lady...

[–]Billisits 51 points52 points  (6 children)

Just remember that it’s never good to have the mentality that the people you disagree with are all extremist nutballs. You see videos like this on the internet with both hardcore left-and-right-wing people looking like complete idiots and it makes you almost start to think that everybody but you is insane.

[–]enwongeegeefor 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Oh entirely....confirmation bias is what makes people live in their own little worlds.

These videos are very much showing "the worst of the worst" because that's what's entertaining. No one posts videos of calm peaceful protests where nothing happens and no one freaks out, and if they DO post those videos, no one cares about them.

This applies to sooooo many things too. Pretty much any contentious subject. So....cops beating people up, BLM being violent, firearms only being dangerous, overt racism and bigotry.....we're seeing mostly the extremes, not the averages.

I always try and remember that despite everything, we're still in the most peaceful era of human history.

the important thing is that you've found a way to feel superior to anyone who has views anywhere to the left or right of you, right?

[–]Billisits 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly. As the other guy said, it's confirmation bias.

[–]DasWeasel 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He specified hardcore left and right wing people often look like complete idiots.

He never said that all firmly left or right wing people are idiots.

He technically didn't even say that the people shown in videos like this post are idiots, only that they're portrayed to be idiots.

    Why, the, commas,?

    [–]Bad_Sex_Advice 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    this woman had no stance at all. Clearly has some sort of mental issue

    [–]brockkid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    she looks like she is turning purple. girl needs to breathe.

    EXCUSE ME I’M THE PATHOS POLICE AND YOURE MAKING TOO MUCH SENSE

    [–]jamespweb 31 points32 points  (0 children)

    “O yea o yea” really finishes it off.

    [–]Ultimate_Cabooser 19 points20 points  (0 children)

    The best thing about this video is whenever it resurfaces, in the comments are always people who ignore their side and instead focus on how crazy the opposing political party is acting in their video, despite both acting exactly the same.

    [–]Nicknam4 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    We’ve all seen this

    [–]rendermatt6 39 points40 points  (7 children)

    They were mocking her.

    [–]Vanayzan 55 points56 points  (0 children)

    They really showed her...

    [–]KingsleyZissou 74 points75 points  (0 children)

    Doesn't make it any less embarrassing for all parties involved

    [–]Powerfury 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    I was only acting retarded

    Wait, they were?

    Seem to have been

    Of course it's not exactly surprising that in the current political climate someone would cut the video to be misleading

    [–]No_Commission 23 points24 points  (0 children)

    Now the title really makes sense.

    [–]anddrewwiles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    But in an attempt to expose ignorance, they instead showed their own immaturity. I think both parties are equally guilty here.

    Utterly depressing.

    what in the world?

    [–]akai_ferret 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    Here's the context.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ec8XZLAckA

    TLDR:
    Lady showed up to scream like a child over their event and they responded in kind.

    [–]TorNoir8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    This is beautiful, i crie every time, should win an emmy.

    [–]SkyWest1218 5 points6 points  (9 children)

    I...I think it's trying...to communicate?

    [–]THE_FIRST_THROWAWAY1 42 points43 points  (8 children)

    I don't think any of them are trying to communicate :/

    [–]XenoTechnian 14 points15 points  (4 children)

    This is actuley just a tiny fraction of the video, there actuley mocking the girl who showed up to there March and would only scream and flip her off, after asking her to leave, drowning her out with chants of USA and asking if that was she could do it if she needed a ride to a mental hospital this segment of the video starts up

    [–]Supersnoopy323 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    They all were hecka dumb

    [–]XenoTechnian 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Oh?

    [–]giuseppe443 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    "I will act like a retard to make fun of this retard, that will show him"

    [–]XenoTechnian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    shrug they tried being nice so why not have a bit of fun

    [–]TripleThreatRegret 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    I think the guys were trying to communicate in her native tongue.

    [–]foxh8er 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    The last time we communicated with fascists they were still killing civil rights activists in missisippi.

    [–]Sworn_to_Ganondorf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    wtf

    [–]XenoTechnian 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Look for the full video, this snippet that gets spread around isn’t particularly explanative

    [–]PinkBubbleT 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Even in context, that's not how adults should act. I understood why they were angry, but they're still behaving like young children...

    [–]XenoTechnian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Fair enough and all but they did start by asking nicely, but when she wouldn’t even talk, well, why not have some fun
