At the time of this stream, a motive was not officially determined…So…potentially, this may not be connected to islamic extremism…

…But, it walks and quacks like a duck…So…this conversation is understandable, in this moment.

I agree that islamic extremists have no business migrating to other places…In fact, there isn’t any truly correct place for them to exist…and it’s ideal that they just don’t exist at all.

To be fair…I hold the same position on jewish, christian, hindu, buddhist, or any other form of religious extremism…

…There is simply no excuse for it to exist…anywhere at all.

It’s nothing more than bullies tormenting others.

“William Costello is a Ph.D. student studying Individual Differences and Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin under Dr. David Buss. His MSc dissertation conducted some of the earliest primary research investigating the underlying psychological profile of “incels” (involuntary celibates). William’s research is currently being peer reviewed.”

This is worth watching.

“The director of the controversial new movie about Alex Jones on media blindness, misleading labels, and America’s mental health crisis

Alex Moyer has now made two movies in a row, TFW No GF and Alex’s War, that sound too much like journalism for today’s media. Even though most reviewers seemed to know exactly what they thought about both subjects before they even saw the films, Moyer was criticized for not planting enough signs telling them — and audiences — what to think about disaffected loner men, or InfoWars villain Alex Jones. The Guardian review of TFW No GF was typical, saying the film:

Pretends 4chan and other gathering places for this particular subculture are mostly harmless, perhaps populated with a few bad eggs. (By “bad egg,” I of course mean mass murderers.)

The movie does nothing of the sort, instead capturing a story of alienation that’s been running through our culture for ages. Moyer’s version merely shows the phenomenon worsening and expanding. She takes characters reduced in panicked media treatments to two-dimensional monsters and renders a nonjudgmental, tautly edited Herzogian treatment of who they are and how they came to be that way.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t been enough to prevent her from being called an apologist for everything from right wing violence to misogyny. Even without reviews, she’s taking in interest, with Alex’s War topping Apple pre-order charts as of this writing. I asked her about the genesis of both movies and how she’s handled the schizoid public response [Matt Taibbi]”

I’d very much like to watch this.
