Oh my god yes, the fucking YouTube algorithm keeps giving me that kind of shit.
"Oh, you're watching a video about 'Murder, She Wrote', why don't you take a look at this video by BELOVED RACIST GAMING ICON JONTRON?!" literally happened to me just last week.
You were watching something about Murder, She Wrote?

Respect.

corvallis, OR
it's whatever man, the world is going to hell anyways

last 5+ years has been the rise of populism across the entire world, amplified by every dumb piece of shit having a voice on the internet and now here we are

really feels like the tipping point before we cross the point of no return
it is difficult and society does have to have a reckoning about a lot of things soon, i doubt it will be easy

it is real tough to stay hopeful but i feel like it matters that we keep trying to push back against the tidal wave of ignorance, even if it is rising faster than the ocean levels

if not for us then at least for the future

Read the fucking threadmarks and educate yourself. You fucking fools just love coming into a room without knowing a single fucking thing and just spouting off. You're not doing anything for the victims.
Dude, what the hell is wrong whith you? First of all, show some civility. I did not insult you and I don't think that i need to be called an imbecile or a fool. I read the threadmarks. I read most of the posts and i stated my opinion on it. I'm entitled to my opinion and at least i tried to bring some arguments to my comments. But thank you for that. For someone who jumps up and down about Pewdiepie's toxicity you're acting like a toxic asshole yourself.

You’re not bringing any argument, you’re recycling the same dumb talking points used by PDP defenders every single time, talking points that were already dismantled by the posts in the threadmarks. Get bent.

The dude was a normal white guy that went on a 7 year journey around the world.... But social issues..

Dude details his extremist white nationalism and that this in as an attack against 'Muslim invasion'... But he's crazy and has nothing to do with Alt-right.

Your arguments fucking sucks.

If you think that this shooting came from some stupid thing that pewdiepie, that idiot, did, then i'm sorry, my friend, but you're wrong. Usually, these cases are much deeper than some stupid alt-right bullshit and have more to do with mental health and social issues. It's really easy to pin the blame on whatever the fuck is easiest in your little circle, though. And I'm not saying the guy isn't a problem, he did some horrendous shit in the last couple of years. And nationalism is this generation's worst sickness, but this thread won't fix that and I restate the fact that it's really disrespectful for everybody that died.
How exactly do you expect the rhetoric that reinforces the killing intent of these criminals to go away if you're not even willing to simply say that PDP needs to watch what he says in this climate where bigots are emboldened? PDP is no different from Sharpio or Milo Y or Baked Alaska or any number of alt right YT personalities because he trades in their speech and doesn't admonish their rhetoric and in fact acts like it's just "another opinion". If you actually are interested in stopping crimes like this where the people perpetrating them site white supremacist rhetoric as reason enough to commit slaughter then you would be invested in convincing PDP to actually have a moment of reflection and contrition where he actually acknowledges the people he's buds with and the way he bandies about shit like "Death to all Jews" are wrong and sick and create that very culture that bigoted killers are born from. It's not disrespectful to want people to stop taking genocide and bigotry lightly instead of treating it like a joke or a game the way PDP does. Again THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT PEWDIEPIE. He is not the only person who needs to take a step back and reevaluate what they feed to their large demographic of followers.

Yes you are entitled to your opinion. And we're entitled to tell you your "opinion" is borne out of a gross misinterpretation of what exactly people are admonishing PDP for. Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean it's an opinion that lines up with reality. People are entitled to their opinions about he world being flat, vaccines causing autism and so on but that doesn't suddenly make them free from being called out that their opinion is wrong.

Sure seems like all these "mentally ill" people just happen to shout the same exact things, consume the same media, have the same ideologies, and literally shout who their inspirations were in the middle of perpetrating their crime.

But don't pay attention to any of that! It's just Mental Health™!

PDP is not personally responsible for this. Heck, I'm one of those suckers who thinks he probably doesn't really know what he's doing and is following/promoting alt-right ideologues "for the lulz."

But goddammit, when your name comes up in a mass shooting directly influenced by the ideology of the people you've signal boosted, it's time to stop making it easy for your audience to see these people. This isn't even about Felix and the stupid, racist, or sexist things he's said; it's about his channel letting alt-right ideologues network with him and access his followers, with his implied permission. This HAS to stop. He can't pretend to be ignorant of what's happening anymore.

Hey, quick, before you’re banned, I have a question: how many burners do you have?

Because all you dipshits constantly burn them over the silliest shit like this. So it’s got to be a lot, right? Or was this really worth it for you?

Ahhh, yeah. "I'm entitled to my opinion", the rallying cry of uninformed people with terrible opinions.

Shooter is of middle-eastern (or anything close) descent: "RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM!"
Shooter specifically yells about Pewdiepie: "Guys, this isn't about Pewdiepie."

The web of content, attitudes, and bigoted accusations against minority groups is a major factor when people target others in mass killings. I think these two videos would help you understand this a little better:

The first is a brief compilation about Ben Shapiro's response to another mass killer deeply influenced by his anti-Muslim propaganda, and his nonsense deflection of responsibility. A key moment is footage of the killer being interrogated, describing the phantom threat he thought he was confronting:



The second is longer (~20 minutes) and more general to how people fall into the rabbit hole that PDP is an active part of:

This exact thing happened to me with the same exact video a week ago. And worse yet I was across the room and it auto-played.

Does PewDiePie promote people to go on mass shootings or something ? I have never payed much attention to him.
No - absolutely not. I'm not a fan of him personally, but the extreme left will do anything to conflate a person with a muddied past to literally any tragedy. Felix did enough by denouncing this individual and giving his "thoughts and prayers." This is a tragedy for everyone, including Pewds.

He's definitely responsible for pandering to nazis, promoting hate speech, harassing T-series, and consistently shit the bed being a racist in sheep clothes. He does all of that. No lies detected lol.



Meanwhile ROSS WHAT THE FUCK

They are all in this together. It's all or nothing. PDP is the shining idol of success they all want to achieve, they don't want to damn their own god.

Oh, i completely agree on the fact that pewdiepie is toxic and caters to fascists. With an audience so big, it's impossible not to have those assholes around. The fact that his antics are mostly "for the lulz" (aka offensive shit a la 4chan) type of humor are vomit-inducing. And yes, i never once countered the fact that he needs to take a step back and reevaluate the shit he's doing. It's a larger social problem, though. Youtube's personality culture and the need for constant attention tends to generate extreme antics and responses. The fact that people make a living by doing stuff like this on youtube makes them cater to every fucking demographic possible for those views. The problem is that because you constantly see their face and all the interactivity associated with youtube / twitch / whatever streaming platform (comments / donations / fan requests etc.) makes a regular user feel a connection to them as opposed to a TV show. And they feel the need to please that audience for the money and attention. So, yeah, the world is fucked.

What do you think of 'Pewds' hosting Ben Shapiro? Don't you think that signal boosting people like that is something he should reflect upon instead of soulless 'prayers'?

"Do anything to conflate". Yeah, like having the shooter directly invoke him.

I thank my fucking stars that people like Vinesauce and Cinemassacre have no connection to PDP.

Though JonTron appeared in one of the latter's vids, was that before or after the racism?
