28. Sounds like you've spoken to a bull fighter with a very high voice.
I think what you have tuned in to is the reality of the human condition. As much as we are all different, there is a lot more to us that makes us all the same. Most bulls respond in the same way to a red flag, just as most people (irregardless of political party affiliation) will respond in the same way to being taunted. Of course there are some of us who are saints (euphemism for higher level of consciousness), just as there are some of us who have no means of self control, for any number of reasons that have been dictated by our past experiences in life. It didn't used to be, but in modern times there are a lot of people in our country who have been "bent out of shape by societies' pliers" (Bob Dylan 1965).
For me, the most frightening part of the video was when one of the rally attendees made reference to using the cardboard cutout (and the person standing behind it) as target practice. That may have been an inference to promote others into taking violent action, or it might have also have been an inference to the danger of his' losing control of his own intentions. Nobody really knows if he was packing or not, just as no one really knows how many of the other people in that line were packing. But being that it was a right wing function that was being held in a state that prides itself in its' history of being "rugged" (I'm trying very hard to say this nicely), I would guess that the number of people in that line who were packing might have been pretty high; as in can you spell C o l u m b i n e?
So then the only reason to tempt fate in that instance (as in standing behind that cut out) would have been either if you had a death wish, or else you were just not very smart.
I'm glad that in this case, it turned out very lucky. We need all of the votes on our side that we can get.
