HOLY CARP!!!
Verbal harassment is obviously as close to violence as non-violence gets. Just a nudge from there...

I have yet to see an explanation of how this engineered harassment is supposed to help. Obviously it's just for catharsis (even just the masturbatory talking about it and encouragement of it), but that's not a very righteous reason, so people don't admit it. But at the same time I've heard nothing resembling a coherent goal.
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

I think it's about the disrespect of the process. "I don't like it because it's capital W Wrong, it should not happen and so therefore I've got to do everything in my power to stop it."

You really wanna see the next stage of this shit, this is an excellent benchmark test. It's well worth watching the full thing as it really is a good portrayal of what can happen elsewhere if it doesn't stop. (My favorite is when the student gets decked, threatened and followed, finds a building to escape into, and one of his stalkers calmly explains that well, he was hit because he was spreading hate speech of course.)

By the way, Weinstein's liberal.
