I'm not saying that Pewdiepie as a whole is innocent. He's at best a Naz-sympathizer and at worst a full-blown nazi himself.

That's almost as bad as a full-blown centrist!

At first I thought you somehow managed to have the article considered for deletion. The [citation needed] is funny, though.

What hole do people like you crawl out of? It's really strange how posts like these pop up every time there's a thread about something like this.
You probably won't be truthful, but I'm generally curious:
  • Who do you get your marching orders from?
  • Where do you get your marching orders from? GAF? KiwiFarms? KotakuInAction? 4chan? A Discord channel?
  • Are low-effort posts like this satisfying some sort of hazing ritual you need to fulfill to on some other site?
Unironically posting what amounts to a "lul safe space" meme in 2019 is just too much.

I was in Honolulu over the holidays, cutting through the mall from the beach back to my AirBnB. A teen girl at the top of the escalator was stopping everyone, showing them her handmade sign, which read "Subscribe to PewDiePie." As I got to the top someone was asking her why they should. She's like "Because he's awesome!" I looked the would-be subscribers in the eye and said "He's a white supremacist" and they turned and looked at the girl like she was an alien, while she looked pissssseddddd.

It was a good day.

Yeah, PewdiePie, at best, likes genocide. He definitely wants Jews to die in concentration camps. He's just possibly not enlisted to the Nazi army.

Pewdiepie talks with and retweets white supremacists on Twitter. Whether or not he's an outright one himself, he surely has no issues with talking to them. I think he's more than just an irresponsible shit at this point.

Probably not the best place to discuss this, but I need to vehemently disagree. Even beyond the most notorious mods that are surely on everyone's minds, I can at least think of two other GAF mods I didn't care for in the least (one of them enjoying actively trolled the GW2 thread even after he stopped playing, and banned people who called him out on it). Whereas Era has a solid track record of making mods out of my favorite people (Morrigan, Finale Fireworker and now RedCrayon) and has been far more lenient with warnings and infractions.

You might be confused by the fact that Era stamps down harder on bigotry than GAF did. Sorry, but for me, that's a feature, not a bug.
I don't remember millions of women and minorities leaving NeoGAF.com in caravans due to the bigotry.

Unsleeved Media and TheQuartering are alternate channels of the same person and run the same editorial content. Was that supposed to be a serious recommendation of a better outlet to go to? I wouldn't want to assume you were being disingenuous.

The reason I linked your criticism of TheQuartering to criticism of this guy's decision to go to TheQuartering with his tale was because the topic of this thread is the man's story of his time at Blizzard. The merit of TheQuarterting as a journalist seems pretty wildly off-topic if it wasn't intended with any relation to this man or his story's credibility.

I'd just like to say, good work everyone on our plan to make ResetERA.com look hysterical by calling PewDiePie an obvious Nazi for a three second clip (which he did in an obvious manner to throw off anyone looking up all the other secret Nazi's he included in the video), but remember to insert the secret code phrases we agreed upon when you post with your multiple alts. This is essential in making sure nobody catches on.

Also, a special thanks to new member Benita for the idea and the codename for the operation.

It's like, the reason most of us moved here, no?

Some of these posts here echo that Congressman from the news this morning: "When did the term 'white supremacist' become a bad thing?"
Pretty much. People with low tolerance for sexism, bigotry and hypocrisy moved to Era; people who didn't mind that much stayed on GAF. I don't think why people are surprised that this selection filter resulted in Era the progressive forum and modern-GAF the average gamer hellhole.

In a more meta sense, it's like people want the intelligent discouse of a strongly moderated forum with zero tolerance for bigotry, but without said moderation being applicable to them. OK, it's not "like" that; it's exactly that.
Excellent work whichever of you this is. There will be a few extra rubles dinars in your paycheck for sure.

Flash! Bang!

Did You Know?

Often times, one will see a lightning strike entire seconds before they actually hear the sound of thunder.

This occurs because the speed of light travels considerably faster than that of sound.

Before the lightning even strikes, however, ResetERA user Kirblar has already processed its auditory/visual data, and more.

This is accomplished in part by two skills:

One, by reading the electromagnetic currents throughout the atmosphere, a skill acquired after years of reading Twitter and politigaf.

The other, by taking the aforementioned knowledge and processing it through a logic-association system based entirely on the Iraq War.

You could say that they have a mental abnormality, that they're flawed. That's not being mean, there's clearly some mental level condition whether genetic or not which is driving them away from the natural order of reproduction and sexual attraction.

This is getting embarrassing

https://www.resetera.com/threads/pewdiepie-promotes-known-white-supremacist-again.92504/

Pewdiepie watched a compilation of tiktok videos that features an altright guy for five seconds. He doesn't promote him, he doesn't mention his name and the guy's face isn't recognizable to anyone who isn't deep into the right wing scene.

LOL, thread already closed.  And another dumb thread that has nothing to do with video games but was posted to the gaming thread at that.

If you check the Twitter post of the guy who "reported" this, it's already filled with comments calling him full of shit and really reaching on this one.   :lol

Quote from: Doctor Ironic
Okay, so let’s do a little exercise. If you think Baked Alaska is less popular than Stefan Molyneux, that’s fine, but how do you explain the fact that PDP also had Ben Shapiro guest star on a recent video of his?

OH NO BEN SHAPIRO?!?!?!  I had to check out the PewDiePie video for this- he has Ben Shapiro look at *Ben Shapiro* memes and react to them.  That's it- nothing political whatsoever.  What is the problem here?

I've come to realize something... It doesn't take much to make gamers snap.

Discussing lack of representation in videogames? snap.

Acknowledging that racism is an issue within the gaming community? snap.

Wife interrupts you while streaming games? snap EXTRA hard.

Gamers are the worst


That's why I post on a 3rd generation board dedicated to video games

This is getting embarrassing

https://www.resetera.com/threads/pewdiepie-promotes-known-white-supremacist-again.92504/

Pewdiepie watched a compilation of tiktok videos that features an altright guy for five seconds. He doesn't promote him, he doesn't mention his name and the guy's face isn't recognizable to anyone who isn't deep into the right wing scene.

LOL, thread already closed.  And another dumb thread that has nothing to do with video games but was posted to the gaming thread at that.

If you check the Twitter post of the guy who "reported" this, it's already filled with comments calling him full of shit and really reaching on this one.   :lol

Okay, so let’s do a little exercise. If you think Baked Alaska is less popular than Stefan Molyneux, that’s fine, but how do you explain the fact that PDP also had Ben Shapiro guest star on a recent video of his?

OH NO BEN SHAPIRO?!?!?!  I had to check out the PewDiePie video for this- he has Ben Shapiro look at *Ben Shapiro* memes and react to them.  That's it- nothing political whatsoever.  What is the problem here?

Dat Ree antisemitism.

I think they should take away the ability of juniors to post until they prove they aren't going to be posting in bad faith.
The Solution?

Require users to post 200 times in political threads before gaining the ability to post in political threads.
