A windmill in Sweden called @PewDiePie
You can know who he is or not. You can love him, you can hate him, it’s irrelevant. One of the most prominent and menacing ways the left has censored dissent the last few years is contacting the employer. It usually goes along the lines of ‘’Did you know you employ someone who supports Nazism?’’ or some bullshit like this. This is not illegal, it’s not slander, yet it can destroy your life.
A known example was the half-horse, half-cunt radical misandrist Clementine Ford getting a man fired for calling her a slut on Facebook. It was repugnant, we said how we felt about it and that was about it. It was interesting because someone of relatively high-profile was able to do it with very little repercussions. However, given the woman is basically a professional troll I don’t think her relevance played much of a role. In other words, this happens all the time, Ford was better known, but it didn’t damage her career.
Now, what if instead of Ford you had one of the most respected newspapers in the country, the boss is Disney and the accused is the most popular youtuber of all time? It already happened. And if we allow this to run unchallenged, we’re making the statement that this is ok. That this is not reprehensible, that attempts to censor people into submission are the new norm, and now, that applies to anyone with clout as high or lower than that of PewDiePie. How many millions of people know who you are? If the answer is under 8 digits, you can expect this to happen to you.
Some back-story. On February 13th, 3 ‘’journalists’’ from The Wall Street Journal, Rolfe Winkler, Jack Nicas and Ben Fritz, the latter one is the only one I recognized from #Gamergate, released a hit piece on PewDiePie entitled ‘’Disney Severs Ties With YouTube Star PewDiePie After Anti-Semitic Posts’’ The title itself is a lie by omission. Disney did not take action when Pewds made the ‘’offensive’’ content. The last of the videos was uploaded on January 22, and since the article was posted 22 days later, it would seem odd that Disney would take that long. So odd in fact that, it didn’t happen that way
As they state later in the article, ‘’On Monday after the Journal contacted Disney about the videos, the entertainment giant said it was severing ties with Mr. Kjellberg’’ In other words, journalists from maybe the most well known US business magazine, a magazine that always has the most recent share value movement of every company, which they display if they deem relevant (Such as a red value after not doing anything over the ‘’anti-Semitic content’’) asked Disney what their story would be. I can just imagine the wording, but I’m pretty sure it was as close as they legally could to extortion. And after causing this, they published it as news, with a deceiving title.
The appropriate title should have been ‘’Disney Severs Ties With YouTube Star PewDiePie After the very people who wrote this article called the company’’, but that sounds disgusting doesn’t it? Sometimes the truth is pretty fucking gross, and these three musketeers of social justice, these non-journalists, these greedy fucking ideologues are, in my humble opinion, very disgusting. YouTube now removed Pewds from YouTube Red and his series got cancelled. The Wall Street Journal has been reporting this, clutching their pearls, pretending it wasn’t their doing.
There is another element they like to bring up. The Daily Stormer, a white supremacist site, used Pewds image and declared itself to be “the world’s #1 PewDiePie fansite” If you use the internet and you weren’t dropped multiple times in the head as a newborn, you know this is a shitpost, they’re trolling and it’s a decent one. I have to wonder if the stormfags knew this would fuck Pewds over and didn’t care, or somehow they didn’t. Well, given their statements, I go for number 1.
“He could be doing all this only to cause a stir things up and get free publicity,” wrote the Daily Stormer.
“Ultimately, it doesn’t matter, since the effect is the same; it normalizes Nazism, and marginalizes our enemies.”
Before the hit piece, that was a stupid statement. Hitler is normalized, he’s the most recognized face of the 20th century, he cannot be more normalized. And in no way Pewds making a few jokes would marginalize stormfag detractors…unless said detractors attacked Pewds, called his biggest endorser with the implied threat of bad publicity and got a show cancelled, a show that now 53 million people will not able to enjoy.
You stupid fucks, you got played by anonymous neo-Nazi trolls. And now we do despise you. You did what they wanted you to do, and you will suffer the consequences.
And of course, this didn’t stay isolated in the original publication. Everyone from Kotaku, to The Guardian, Time, Slate, ABC, The Washington Post, The Daily Mail, every single left leaning media outlet had the story published with the same deceiving title in less than 24 hours. This is the current state of the media. So predictable some random white supremacist troll was able to fool every single one of them into making themselves (yet even more) despicable. They attacked one of the most beloved celebrities in the planet, one that hasn’t fallen victim to peer-pressure induced identity politics, one that understands how young people use the internet and is not a shill for a cause most Americans don’t give half a shit about.
In a sea of normal fags and SJWs, Pewds is starting to become someone a more adult audience could relate to. Not just mainstream, not just youtube, there are few people with his reach that remain loyal to themselves and their fans, with Meryl Streep preaching (and lying) at the Golden Globes, with Beyonce portraying a cold blooded spree killer as a victim. Fuck, even with nearly all YouTube personalities in the million+ range of subscribers spouting the same identity politics bullshit. They went after the one who had stayed the same and hadn’t sold out and beat everyone else while doing so. Because you think he’s a threat you can tame by censorship, personal attacks and the typical accusations of some kind of bigotry.
Gamergate, Brexit, Trump, do these people ever learn? They can’t see the simple pattern that when you keep kicking even the quietest majority they’ll eventually rise against you and win? Enjoy the next couple of days, because if you thought you could try to ruin someone that most people will perceive as an honest, charismatic and good person, and his fans adore, I have to say this, windmills are not giants mate. But you will die crashing against them. And you charged against the toughest one out there. I do not wish you good luck, to any of you. I hope you get the worst, you certainly earned it. And maybe after the shitstorm coming your way subsides, hopefully the remaining ones will understand that they cannot silence us, any of us. I am an individual who will stand with anyone whose speech is being threatened. One of millions. Do you still think we’re giants? Charge ahead then.
