Werner Herzog’s Bear has a theory about the recent “gun rights” demonstration in Richmond, Virginia. He suggests that there is much more to it than the demonstrators’ affection for the mobile masculinity machines. Here’s a bit:
Today we see the militia members march in Richmond, and they claim that they did so without committing violence. Meanwhile, people affiliated with them commit atrocities like shootings in Charleston and Pittsburgh and they pretend they have nothing to do with the behavior of these “lone wolves.” It’s an old trick but it keeps working because our government and media are too lazy to press the issue.
