People Being Driven Nuts...
(Drudge) In a separate prior incident, Man Asks Clerk For 'Anything That Would Kill 200 People'... That was a liberal nutcase, I think. Officers found the man, who told them he was trying to make a political point.
The world is so insane that it drives us to be insane when we’re insane with anger. Stay cool…
The ex-girlfriend of the shooter. Mentally ill!
(Heavy) Adelia Johnson, Connor Betts’ Ex-Girlfriend — she wrote a blog post in the far-left platform Medium: “My Ex-Boyfriend was the Dayton Shooter: This is not an excuse for Connor Betts. This is just the Connor that I knew.”
She said “We...were very open about our mental illnesses…. he had bipolar disorder and possibly OCD…. Joking about personal mental illnesses is one of the biggest coping tools in the mental health toolbelt…. So, when he started joking about his dark thoughts, I understood. Dark thoughts for someone with a mental illness are just a symptom that we have to learn how to manage. Joking about wanting to hurt people was just heard as, ‘I have uncomfortable thoughts that are inappropriate to express, but I need to joke about them otherwise they’re too scary and real.’ People who do not have a mental illness do not understand this sense of humor. … He trusted me with so much of his darkness that I forgot most of it.”
“Connor and I kept our relationship on the down-low due to the polyamorous nature of it. I was engaged to another man while dating Connor, and all parties involved knew about the situation. Everything was consensual, even if it was a bit of an adjustment.” (So white, so Huff Post!)
They went to a bar, and she said, “We ended up getting into a political debate with a Republican. Connor really knew his stuff and he was impressed when I knew mine. …. A couple of drinks later, Connor asked me if I saw the video of the synagogue shooting.” So he showed it to her!
“By then end of the night, I was trashed from accidentally drinking too much from anxiety. He seemed way soberer than I was.”
Johnson Says She Broke Up With Betts (via TEXT) Because He Became Too Aggressive.

Dana from New York wants to know where Trump's rhetoric is taking us along with some other questions. Referring to Charlottesville, James would have protested alongside with the unite the right people. It’s a shame that people want our historical monuments gone. Dana totally agrees and then moves on to race relations. He says that race relations are better but doesn’t like the whole “racism doesn’t exist” thing. He is sure that the color of your skin affects you. James remarks on how whites have raised nice, docile children while the blacks are raised more confrontational. It’s all about how you are raised and Dana can’t find anything to disagree with there. Moving on to Trump’s rhetoric, James loves what the President has been saying. Dana asks if Obama was the worst, James says yes. Dana asks what is black culture and what is white culture? Americans are allowing their native born children to be brainwashed into destroying their culture. James touches on the frustration of white people over POCs that say they are conservative but then question Trump for comments like the “go back” tweets about Ilhan Omar and squad.
Zack from North Carolina has a friend that's being brainwashed into accusing people of racism. He wants to know how to tow the line between convincing someone but also speaking up. James thinks the college got to Zack’s friend. James urges Zack to let the spirit lead him. Since its Zack that’s in the situation then he has to see for himself when the time is right. James has a cautionary tale of burning bridges with people over topics such as these.
Skip from Georgia went a whole week without referring to the Jews in the Youtube chat. He learned something about himself, for example, even though it's mostly joking he realizes his obsession over it a little bit. Skip mentions that he overcame the fallen state, and James wants to know how he got over it. Skip says that he came to realize that he was wrong for hating people. James wants to know if Skip ever dealt with his parents but they have since expired. He did write a sort of open letter to his dead parents in a way facing them. James asks how his father’s drinking affected him.
Scott from Minnesota touches on his story being medicated from a young age. He remarks on how people take their diagnoses as an identity. Scott now believes that it really is trauma and anger. Scott never knew what was really wrong with him growing up but has since connected the dots, his anger is affecting his health. His parents divorced because the mother hated the father for drinking. Scott tried getting off the meds cold turkey which didn’t go down well. Scott remembers hearing voices throughout his ordeal and remembers violent thoughts.
Louis from Texas has been listening for a year and like The Hake Report. Louis like the message to forgive your parents and James finds it crazy that even the grown “boy-men” still say “I have a great relationship with my mom”. Louis started reading the bible after his mother died. He challenges Jesse’s view of the bible. Louis admits his grandmother was leading the family. James warns Louis to not get too into reading the bible.
KT from Washington, D.C. brings up the DQ (the Dairy Question) and then touches on yesterdays free speech panel. In his opinion, Travis was out of control and wanted James to get him under control. James agrees mostly with Travis but he is wrong for hating. James was also shocked when Brandon Tatum wanted to red flag Travis.
The Solution: Men’s History Month Free Speech Forum
This was the spirit of the First Amendment. One thing about blacks, they get it off their chest. Whites are more repressed in general.
The people in the audience made some interesting points: Mike, Josh, you guys represented the frustration and concerns of white young men really well.
One of the most shocking, telling, and foreboding moments: when Brandon Tatum said they need to “red flag” Travis. Yes, he’s snarky and impatient, but his politics are no more extreme than Democrats (kill babies, punch white people), or useless than most Republicans (who’ve surrendered the country).
Michael Greer, a lady who’s been on Jesse’s show talking about Agenda 21, pointed out what I did, that gov’t officials called the Tea Party “domestic terrorists,” so she didn’t like Red Flag laws.
A vindictive girlfriend or worrying mother could “red flag” a young man unjustifiably.
Liberal anti-gun friends could call authorities on a conservative pro-gun friend. Liberals don’t think straight. Conservatives don’t totally either.
And who decides it whether a “red flag” is legitimate? Liberal judges. Untrustworthy “experts.”
Mental health professionals claim Trump is dangerous to the mental health of the public, remember. They’re the ones who are mental and dangerous. Nutcases! — Jesse interviewed Dr. Bandy Lee and Dr. Philip Zimbardo.
