Charlottesville, VA

Debbie Lusignan, The Sane Progressive, nails this situation, too, with her comments.

However, this is not just a sound bite. The video is just over an hour long:

She speaks so slowly, with too many `ums`, pregnant pause ahaaaaaaaas`, and asides without indication of when she comes back to her thought thread, for me to listen to. If she wrote it down, edited it, and then kept to script - maybe 20 minutes would do it.

I got zip from it that I didn`t get elsewhere. But I tried.

Have you tried playing it at x1.5 or x2 speeds? That's usually what I do when someone makes a video of herself speaking slowly.

Is that possible? How done?

Edit... found it... I can increase it to 1.5. Still, speed alone does not fit enough of it for me to soldier thru it.

Click settings and then speed.

I'm on a computer. If you're on a phone, I have no idea what to do. Phones are evil so I only use them to hammer nails into crosses.

I understand what you're saying, although I seem to be getting addicted to her style.

You might try watching just the first two and last two minutes or try Gord's approach.

Or we could just nutshell it? I'm gonna guess here: "Killing marchers at Peace and Freedom responders to Hate Statue Worshiping White Nationalists, Racists, KKK, and Nazi's is ... not a good thing."

Any details worth adding?
