      battle cry. Implying, of course, that empathy is weak, inferior, not to be tolerated by Real Romans. Manly Men. Good to mock concern for the underdog. He is one of those frat boys who never got over being a white guy when being a white guy was not cool any more. The 1990s. He is armed too..

          I know all this because I have talked to him at length. He is a seriously conflicted and frustrated guy because he feels he missed out on all the easy pickings as a white guy by being born too late. Its sad.. I dont know how he got that idea, but its FIRMLY planted in his head, along with the mocking battle cry.. THINK of the CHILDREN.. He thinks its clever.
