“Christopher Cantwell Radical Agenda how-to-hit-your-girlfriend”:
Well, that gives me a different perspective on the guy. Not too cool…
So much for being about using reasoning to get your point across and not resorting to using force.
Couples are going to do whatever they’re going to do, and that’s between them, I guess. But he chose to put it out there, so we in the outside world are going to have reactions. Just like people react to whatever I put it out there, but he’s far more popular and since found himself among the leaders of a well-publicized, nazi-attended political rally.
That letter though…
Sounds pretty pretentious and demonstrates a need to control his partner.
So, he’s a drunk, and she provokes him. Sounds exactly like the type of couple who ought to start a family.
Society is a mess, from the bottom to the top. Clearly we’re all mixed up. Weird people keep breeding. And encouraging others to breed also.
His Vice interview (HBO footage):
Wow… His interview at the end though…
Now that I’ve learned a little more about the guy, I’m less impressed. To say the least. Pretty big switch from how he acted during that interview with Karen Straughan (aka Girl Writes What).
And this is the infamous video circling around of him very emotional after learning of his arrest warrant:
Hmmm… What can I say? Just another oddball out in society. As an oddball myself, I’m limited on how much criticism I can levy here without being a total hypocrite. However, alluding to threats of violence against counter-protesters (on video, no less), then later being terrified of violence from cops simply because they issued a warrant on him (also broadcast to the internet) is a pretty major shift in gears. Part of me feels kinda bad for the dude since he’s embarrassed himself across media networks and youtube. But he also looks to have had it coming. Talked a really big game that he obviously can’t live up to. This is the problem with too much pride and arrogance, especially when one’s house is made of glass.
Makes me rethink sharing so much shit online, to be honest. Because this kind of thing can happen and blow up in your face. Hence why it’s important to try to stay reasonable and relatively humble. Bravado tends to get tested in the end. We all put on acts to one degree or another, but some outright misrepresent themselves in dramatic ways. This being a case in point. Sucks when your public image implodes, and that one was a doozy. I’m emotional as hell my own self, and I nowadays try not to pretend otherwise. It’ll come out in the end anyway — might as well be fairly upfront about it. Just strikes me as kinda strange that someone with such an emotional disposition would attempt to lead others in a movement such as that. Seems it would’ve been better had he recognized this limitation in his personality and not sought a leadership role in the first place. Neuroticism and leadership just don’t bind well.
Those who seek power aren’t always, or typically, the ones who deserve it or can handle it. And now that’s been made clear once again.
