"'Demand Free Speech' Meets 'All Out DC'"; Subverse makes a short film about the confrontations in Washington DC July 6, 2019


“’Demand Free Speech’ Meets ‘All Out DC’: Confrontations and Conversations”, a 15 minute film from OnSubverse about the demonstrations in Freedom Plaza and Pershing Park at 14th St and Pennsylvania Ave NW on Saturday afternoon, July 6, 2019.


The film comprises video licensed from Ford Fischer and News2Share.

But the film also interviews participants from both sides and shows some conflict.  There is some more explicit conflict showing arrests and fighting on the Minds.com version of this material, which is longer (and not censored for YouTube community standards).

At some point, you get the impression that the Leftist or Antifa or “All Out DC” factions are well into collective thinking and personalization, and sometimes make characterizations of other people being fascist or supremacist when factually they are not.

On the other hand, a lot of the time, the "right wing" presence for "DemandFreeSpeech" seemed rather harmless and rather silly, like seeing Milo Yiannopoulos in drag. You're left wanting to go back and watch videos on gay male personal "body fascism" which some people imagine eventually has political consequences.
