    Bret Weinstein

    I've been watching a lot of his videos lately. For those who don't know him, he is a self described "progressive" who was run out of a tenured position at Evergreen College a few years ago. despite the label "progressive" he and most of us here are speaking to the same points.

    I found this recent video of him on the Joe Rogan podcast.

    Yes it's long but it is well worth the listen.

    From there I looked up his earlier videos with Joe.
    Watch this video then look at the date.

    Here is a Vice video from 2017 that shows where it all started.

    Here is a video of his podcast with Matt Taibbi from The Rolling Stone

    Here is Bret and his wife discussing what is going on in Portland (where they live).

    It's scary stuff folks, but IMO you should watch the videos.

    I am encouraged that people who aren't on the same page can discuss their points and opinions calmly and rationally.

    Ya, I've watched/listened to him a bit. I definitely don't agree with everything he says, but he does have a lot of good points. I will pretty much listen to anyone's point of view as long as it's reasonable.

      He's a sane lefty one can reason with, who is quite alarmed at the intolerant monster the progressive left has turned into. I've been following his videos too.

      Sadly, only a small minority on the left has dared break ranks and sound the alarm.

      Here is another example of someone on the left who is calling out the BS of the woke crowd:

                  This is one of the easier listening ones to start with!!!

                    It's not often that one hears someone from the left openly admit that recent events have fully vindicated the need for the second amendment.

                      all the stuff at evergreen happened during my co-workers daughters' final year at that college, they didn't have a graduation because of the "threat of racist right wingers" it was a bunch of fun to watch it all play out, it's a bummer that the school is even still around, despite a general drop in attendance.

                      i'm always amazed that people like Weinstein are able to hold on to their big government/free-for-all ideals even after going through that sort of direct experience.

                          I listen to some of his stuff. He's a reasonable guy.

                            He had on Dan Crenshaw on today. Pretty good podcast with left and right talking it out.
                            I feel most people are close to center like these cats.
