This is unsurprising because Ben Shapiro is racist against Muslims and probably celebrated yesterday.
Edit: I just read Shapiro's tweet from yesterday and it's one of the only tweets I've read of his that I agree with. Hopefully his message resonates with the alt right crowd on 8chan who celebrate this evil.
If you're an immature young adult who literally spends his entire time broadcastig your life you're bound to be caught saying stupid things every now and again. Whenever I see people equating him to the devil they always point out the same 3 or 4 mistakes, all of which he apparently appologised for.
I never saw his content other than the polemic stuff, hence my questions about his "average stance"...
Someone popular on Twitter and YouTube, as I learned yesterday.
The cowardly shooter yelled "subscribe to Pewdiepie" as he gunned down innocent humans.
This is the definition of reaching, pewdiepie is guilty of shitposting and therefore he is an inspiration for a mass shooting? Christ.
Does that make everybody who promoted his channel (which is a LOT of channels) also guilty of association then?
But he didn't say shit about tacos did he? he had many references to alt right people and I don't think it's unfair to put those people under the microscope as far as their influence goes.
that's not what it said you fecking gimp, get your head out poopies dainty little arsehole and actually read other people's posts, no one's said he inspired a mass shooter, holy shit why do you love him so much?
I’m pretty sure I read that there’s some far right news outlet that regularly refers to him as “their boy”.
Storm something, I think it was called.
"a poseur-nihilistic garbage culture of subnormal losers"
Gonna have to remember that gem.
Oh go and do one you weirdo.
You're so desperate to portray little everything as a fecking Nazi, you do it with everybody, in so many threads. Anybody who remotely strays from your bubble is alt right, a nazi, whatfecking ever.
I don't love pewdiepie, it's just fecking tiresome reading you (and others) desperate to tar so many people with the same shitty brush.
The thread is about pewdiepie being an inspiration for white supremacy, and you think it's weird to defend him against that? It's generally considered a fecked up thing to accuse somebody of, but nah there's some desperate 'connection' you can cling on to, and by god you will.
Stormfront mostly hate him. They call him a cuck, an idiot, a mainstream media pawn, a coward .. whatever.
yo literally the only reason anyone is talking about pewdiepie is because dipshits like you immediately spammed the internet to defend him, no one would give a solitary feck and this thread would quickly die if you weren't acting like a fecking pr manager for a racist gamer
Don't you find it strange that the shooter yelled "subscribe to Pewdiepie " as he murdered people? At the very least I think certain questions are justified, no?
Ahh, guess what I read was inaccurate then. I stand corrected.
Its by no means a coincidence the alt right, 4chan and other vermin sites adore Pewdiepie. You just need to do some research into some of the vile things he has said and done to realize what a scumbag he is.
Shitposting with 89 million subscribers has its consequences to be fair. Large audiences mean large responsibilities whether you like it or not. Is PewDiePie an inherent neo Nazi? Probably not. Does he have a large audience of neo Nazi incels? Absolutely. Can audiences be sycophantic and take their edge lords seriously? Yes they can. Surely he's got to realize that...
i dont know all that much about him but yeah probably
He specifically referenced the well known Pewdiepie subscriber meme, and he sarcastically cited Candace Owens as his major driver to white supremacy, and Spyro the dragon as what turned him to ethnonationalism.
Most of what he said, wrote and the music he played is like a tour de force of memes, and most of them actually aren't even nefarious in and of themselves.
Not PewDiePie, but very relevant to the discussion. This guy's a real cnut and commands a large alt right subscriber base. His name is Tristan Barker.
thanks squishy, redcafe's stormfront correspondent
Yeah the only reason people talk about a guy with 89m subscribers is because 'dipshits' like me try and defend him. Watertight logic.
there's only one reason why she doesn't have her own thread or anything, it's nothing to do with irony or sarcasm, it's because no one cares enough to act like her pr manager
Could be that, or could be that an article I read posted stormfront forums in which they discuss him.
How would you know what the users of Stormfront think? Why exactly are you spending time on that white supremacist site?
i guess we will never know for sure
this thread was made because you're a child who went into the shooting thread and wrote paragraphs about his charity work
Not really, considering he also spoke about a lot of other nonsensical shit.
His intention was to stir up controversy and gain infamy, so he mentioned a bunch of memes. Pewdiepie is the biggest content creator on youtube and has obviously been involved in controversies in the past, so it's no real shock he'd call him out.
@syrian_scholes did you make this thread because I said that pewdiepie hasn't contributed nothing to humanity?
Well you know, when you're bored on the weekends.
Everywhere is discussing pewdiepie, I've been reading articles about him, one of which referenced stormfront and a thread posted about pewdiepie.
That's not what you said though. It was more like:
You didn't name the "controversies" so I will - most content creators manage to steer clear of saying "kill all Jews", the n-word, and the 14 words. Nice coincidence - the shooter referenced the 14 words. Another nice one - P has a mutual partnership with Ben Shapiro, an inspiration for a previous mosque shooter. Another - P follows Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux, who spread the white genocide talking point that is the central, unironic political motivation of the shooter.

Pewdiepie as an Influence for White Supremacy
keep fighting the protect pewdiepie fight dude
No, somebody posted a tweet from someone saying pewdiepie had offered nothing to humanity, I replied saying he has done because he's done extensive charity work.
I plead the fifth.
I don't care which part of his shtick is irony, how much be believes in white nationalism.The only thing that matters practically is what his pre-teen and teen followers are going to be linked to after watching his gaming streams - and in that his promotion of "800 million radical Muslims who live in sewers" Ben Shapiro and his links with "America and Europe for whites, others will corrupt it" Molyneux and Southern are important.
I find it pathetic and a bit scary that attention has turned to a youtuber in relation to this terrorist attack. As if this wouldn't have happened regardless
Thats what I meant by the thread title, I didn't accusse him of being a white nationalist per say, I was just questioning his motives and whether he should be held accountable for being irresponsible
I didn't want to write it in the other thread because it's too off topic in a thread about a tragedy, but here it goes:
I only know of pewdiepie's existence because he or someone working on his behalf hacked gta online messaging systems some months ago to advertise his channel. Feck him. No way he has 89m human followers, I don't believe it for a second. Even if all the stupider kids from all western countries combined (say the bottom 30% I.Q wise) sub him he doesn't get to 89m. He gamed the system.
