American "Christians" just make this sort of shit up as they go, right? Like, some of the interpretations of the Bible are just  :doge
It's like those JRPG's that use religion as their inspiration.  :lol

I wouldn't say they make it up, exactly, but they follow a pretty specific and long established American "conservative values" that really have little to nothing to do with Christianity.

I guess it depends on what he said, I can interpret that as classic british understatement

like yes threatening to murder members of parliament might cause some anxiety and would also earn you a checkup in the US

Something I recently discovered is that there's also a rise of anti-anti-sjw youtubers. And while progressive youtubers always existed I find it particularly interesting how they now exactly copy the style of the anti-woke ones. Same type of thumbnails, video titles, video format, making a new video pretty much everyday...

No, it's pretty funny. The guy is probably a tool, but that picture is objectively at least a litle bit funny.

Who watches this shit? Look at those video lengths.

People compare it to cable news but that's completely different I think. Watch Tucker Carlson or Rachel Maddow, yes, they have a worldview that supposedly informs everything but they'll cover like ten topics on a show not spend thirty minutes on a single thing from pop culture.

You can completely disagree with Tucker Carlson and watch his show and get informed. You'll get a sense of "what's going on" in media circles, you'll learn what conservatives are or are about to be outraged about, you might hear a story that's not really covered elsewhere because it's one of Tucker's obsessions and then you can go learn about that story from better sources, etc. What can you possibly learn from these kinds of channels?

To me, it's unbelievable how much credit the younger generations get for being "media savvy" when they give shit YouTube videos as much creedence as actual professional media as long as it supports their political/cultural worldview.

Media savvy?  Probably not.  Distrustful of professional media though, certainly, especially when shitheads like Taylor Lorenz can remain employed at the top establishments after repeated ethical failures and "missteps".  They see a system being gamed by those who are bought and paid for it, at the detriment of the people at large (regardless of whether or not that statement is actually true).

Being fair, I’m pretty sure YouTube encourages this kind thumbnails and video titles. Doesn’t mean they aren’t annoying clickbait trash, just that YouTube itself encourages this shit (and a reason why being a hardcore leftist in YouTube is kind of laughable).

Also, I wish there were more antiSJW that were not alt right cunts (or progressives that were not shallow assholes bitching about anime tits) rather than this hellhole of “trolls trolling trolls”.

I find it kind of hilarious people like the Quartering are hated that much. The content is literally reading out some conservative news article and then chuckling every so often. How that shit is even considered transformative on youtube is beyond me.

I think he's jumping to conclusions here but at the same time the economic downturn will mean that studios will aim for the biggest demographic and movies they can release worldwide.

Pretty much, this is the ultimate fantasy but for 97% of those it's "deffo gonna take part! ...if you can deliver the Antifas and war just directly on my lawn."

I don't think it's a great sign it's so popular a rallying cry no matter how empty and idle it is.

right, and anyone who actually goes off the deep end and takes action is only going to damage their own side more from the optics, because most people just want to live in peace
