He's as much of an anti-semite as I am a racist when I say Nigger.
When will people learn that you can't be an accidental racist, anti-semite or homophobe? There has to be intent. You know, that thing that's really important when judging people. The thing that actual courts use when determining punishment. But of course the social media court doesn't have to adhere to judicial principles. It's just judgement without trial.
No he's not. He recommended a channel for its anime reviews. He didn't notice that the channel has random little racist and sexist stuff carefully inserted into the videos.
I watched some of the videos from E;R yesterday. They are just normal comedy review videos. You really have to pay close attention to notice anything wrong. Like in his Star Wars review, he called J.J.Abrams "Jew Jew Abrams".
But if you weren't looking for that, you could easily not notice it (especially given that people don't necessarily know Abrams is jewish).
These dumb activist journalists don't understand that normal people don't spend all their time hunting for subtle racism everywhere.
Yeah as i just pointed out in my previous post E:R "anti semetic" content is really subtle stuff that you would likely not even notice, which makes it no surprise that Pewdiepie didnt notice it himself when he watched his videos.
And honestly i dont see how pointing out that someone is a Jew should be considered an anti semetic action, and yes i know it comes form the place of "the jews are controlling the media" conspiracy, but its very obviously done as an edgy joke, and in such a subtle way that people (like pewdiepie) will not even notice it when watching his videos, i mean its not like the guy is stopping in the middle of his videos to spew some anti semetic rethoric or telling people that we need to get rid of the jews, he is very obviously making subtle JOKES...
If the guy is trying to radicalize people and make them into anti semites then he is making a TERRIBLE job since not only am i not an anti semite after watching all of his videos (some of them multiple times), but one of the people i admire the most is an openly jewish guy who never takes off his kippah and is very religous.
From what I understand, literally the only thing Pewdiepie did was make a somewhat off-color joke that involved a youtube channel which you can pay to hold up any message you want, which he thought it would be funny to have them hold up an anti-semetic message while doing a bit where he came across it and looked surprised. And he will shout the occasional racial slur as a sort of knee jerk reaction/rage online. It's meant to be like a cuss, not being disrespectful to any race..
He probably does the occasional move that's in bad taste or a bit out of line, but to lump him into the same category as say, David Duke by branding him "anti-semetic" or "racist" is hilarious and ridiculous beyond belief. Aren't we dilluting the term at this point, to where it's completely losing all meaning?
I just wanna add that after he said Nigger on that infamous Stream (which as far as im aware is the only racial slur he ever used), he completely stopped using slurs and cuss words in his videos, so much so that he made it a running gag that his channel was a "christian channel" and until this day he still doesnt use that type of language, the worse thing he has said since then is the word "thot".
