I think it as simple as that violent anti-intellectuals are willingly subordinate and submissive to what they perceive as more powerful. They want to be on the ‘strong’ side.
This gal is in very deep and pretty much a lost cause otherwise...unfortunately governments recruit such ones from Universities today.....they like those who form opposition groups and observe them.... so they snatch them up and groom them as they will.
There's actually a team of people who travel internationally and their purpose is to get to the people on the streets, locate those like them who are up for a fight for freedom...but then hijack these protests in order to take down Leaders of nations.....it takes little to move a mass of people once you have them organized.
I remember reading a young Ukrainian girl who was innocently protesting for freedom....then she saw members of the Right Sector killing and beating unarmed police officers....and the violence erupting from their actions. She wrote about this and how scared she was that other elements were taking over....she saw the groups of Nazi's and their control of the streets, beating on people for no reason.
Ukraine is a very tough neighborhood under calm conditions...but you get them riled and all manner of thuggery erupts.
