RE: the above. You have heard from me before, and as a 76-year-old White Marine veteran surrounded by old folks like this guy who haven't updated their minds in the last 50 years here in lily-white Bend Oregon. I did learn this choke “hold” in boot camp. It is actually a blood choke that cuts off blood flow to the brain rendering the enemy quickly unconscious. It works because they had us do it to each other to prove it works, but release when your fellow trainee is unconscious. Then you could do something worse if necessary. Never meant to be used long term, maybe this guy wasn't paying attention.😡
Nationalism, undermining the work of countless scholars and eyewitnesses, because we are too “busy” or too scared to actually account for the damage it’s wreaking on America, and worse, to clearly see our role in allowing it to fester, grow, metastasize, and kill.
And additionally on your closing paragraph many folks here just have their heads in the sand, or are intentionally uninformed, or have their hands over their ears, la la la la, I can't her you!
