A new video released on YouTube showed a microcosm of the mentality of protesters opposed to President Donald Trump.
And what it revealed, over and over again, is that the vast majority of those interviewed had no idea what they were angry about.
Independent video journalist Austen Fletcher, a Dartmouth graduate who quit a Wall Street job to pursue comedy in Los Angeles, went to Hollywood Boulevard to get an idea of what both the anti-Trump and pro-Trump demonstrators were thinking.
“Why are you against Trump?” Fletcher, who owns the YouTube channel “Fleccas Talks,” asked one man whose response was incomprehensible.
“Because Trump is against everybody who’s not in his class, I look at it,” he said.
“Everybody that’s not … like … I don’t know what Trump’s situation is because he’s friends with Kanye West so you can’t really say race.”
“What are we mad about?” Fletcher asked another.
“Everything,” the man responded.
When pressed to name an issue the man stood silent with no response.
The original man interviewed then claimed there were concentration camps that were going to be used on Hispanics.
Another claimed the minimum wage ought to be “at least $23/hour” and refused to belive that would take a toll on small business owners.
The other protesters were equally clueless, other than yelling “F**k Trump” they didn’t have an idea of what it was they were protesting.
Fletcher then approached a group of young pro-Trump patriots who were on hand to protect the president’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and everything changed.
Their answers were incredibly cogent, demonstrating a stark contrast between the rival groups. They displayed a keen awareness of the brainwashing power of the liberal media, and vowed they are in this for the long haul.
Many pro-Trumpers also said they wished the anti-Trump faction would research the facts and debate with an open mind.
Perhaps, most inspiring was their enthusiasm and passion for not only Trump, but for America. One impassioned young man near the end of the video dropped a hopeful “warning” for anyone watching:
“We’re going to come to your city and red pill you. You’ll get on the Trump train. You’ll get on the conservative bandwagon … just wait!”
