White 20/30-something middle class American dude with no real understanding of perspectives outside of those very similar to him (i.e. other white 20/30-something middle class American dudes) or whatever media hubs he agrees with says dumb shit that has little to no basis or application in reality.

Jesus fucking Christ, screw this guy. I'm sorry if you're a fan and get pissy at people stopping support of him, but I am DONE even trying with him. He knows the shit he's saying has no actual evidence to back it and knows who's he's wanting to support, so looks like he's just making that line clear and wide

He sure made a massive effort to avoid admitting to racism. Not that it matters, as he's made it blatantly obvious to anyone willing to accept it.

Just, fuck me. Where does this nonsense stem from. He couldn't back up any point (and I use that word very loosely) and deflected and danced around every attempt made by Destiny to simply state what his argument was about.

I've never seen any of his videos (and had never heard of Destiny for that matter) and therefore have no attachment to the guy at all, but even so I can never not be incredibly disappointed to hear such delusional bigotry from influential personalities.

Yep, I'm done too. I didn't care about the whole "retarded" controversy a couple years back. I mean yeah, he behaved like a child, but I wasn't exactly impressed by the other side either so, for me, the two sides cancelled each other out and I quickly forgot about it. The weird feminism/SJW rant from a few weeks back? My philosophy was (and generally speaking still is) I didn't care about a creator I like having differing political opinions so long as they kept it out of their videos. So I was still willing to watch, but I did unfollow his Twitter because eugh. This? Nope. Even if he actually makes another video in 8 months and it's HILARIOUS, it will be completely and utterly tainted. And something tells me I won't even be able to view his older stuff (not even the Game Grumps stuff) without this overshadowing it.

But you know what really kills me? I think back to about five or six years ago when Noah Antwiller (aka SpoonyOne) had his big Twitter meltdown (which, incidentally, seems to have all but killed his career in hindsight) and I remember him directly telling Jontron to fuck off on Twitter. At the time, Jon was the new, up-and-coming wacky guy we all loved, and he always cited Spoony as a massive inspiration. There was something genuinely heartbreaking about seeing such a likeable guy get slapped by one of his idols.

And now? Jon has managed to surpass Spoony in the art of douche-ness. I don't know how we reached this point, but here we are. Imagine if a time traveler from the future appeared and said, in five years, PeanutButterGamer is going to be literally defending Hitler. It sounds impossible to believe, and yet, well, that's basically what's happened here.

Just fuck, man.

Jon laughing while he was talking to Destiny, over and over made me grind my teeth every time it happened. He sounds soooo smug and like a total ass. I don't think I would have been able to keep my patience the way Destiny did. Like soooooo much shit Jontron was saying was unbelieveable. I can't even deal. And it really burns my ass to hear him saying it when he's only a 2nd generation immigrant.

Like does he not see the hypocrisy? Personal story digression: My grandparents migrated to australia from Albania (both sides) and had to go through a lot of racist shit, my grandmother's brother moved to america and got drowned in a public pool by either communists or racists. My parents, even both born in australia, both relatively "white" looking still had to go through a lot of racist shit growing up in the 70s and 80s, which is not that fucken long ago tbh!  obv not as bad as being black or aboriginal in australia, or black in in america, but it's kinda comparable to the shit italians/irish got in america i guess, and I can't simply believe someone from a similar background is saying all this shit...

It really baffles me that the son of Middle Eastern immigrants can be so out of the loop with how bullshit the alt-right ideology is. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but I know from just a few minutes that Jon has some seriously idiotic beliefs. One thing that stood out to me in the highlights was how he said Irish people were never not European whites. Coming from a family of Irish and Scottish immigrants...did he not read a fucking history book? Every generation there's punching bags, back in the late 1800s and early 1900s it was the Blacks and the Irish, then they added the Italians. Today it's the hispanic immigrants and muslim refugees while they also go back to give their favorite old punching back (black people) a one-two frequently.

10 hours ago, Solly said:

He's the son of two Iranian immigrants. It's absurd that he can think some of this shit.

The problem is, he apparently has also had very bad experiences with said parents, because, in his own words, "they were assholes who just happened to love me" and were quite abusive - not because of anything specific to their race or ethnicity, mind you, but they were apparently somewhat abusive towards him and suffered from something that caused them to take their anger out on him.

That doesn't really excuse him being a shithead, but still.

I still watch and enjoy his stuff. My not like all his ideas but his videos help get me through the work day. Alt right alt left regardless both are idiot sides and both have equal amounts of hate in them.

Well, if "demographic invasion" is what he's worried about, I suppose that's karma for invading someone else's land, killing the natives and planting a flag there, on top of kidnapping innocent people from across the ocean for the sake of enslaving them. I have no sympathy for paranoid white people.

Please tell me you didn't pull the flimsy "alt-left" excuse trying to justify a side that clearly embraces their own white supremacist nature and ideology, becuase let's be honest, even if "alt-left" were that much of a thing, it's a fools errand trying to claim that there is such an equivalency in such atrocities, let alone trying to defend Jon Tron for this latest shit spectacle.

The Klan  originally came from the left and then moved to the right. No I can't defend what Jon said but how us hating him going yo change anything.  It won't. You can hate him all you want yet he still has millions of followers. All it is today is a volleyball match of oh you hate us well we hate you right back. My personal stance in politics is i don't let feelings override common sense. I'm blacker detest blm as they are a hate filled group. There are those who want better treatment but do so without rioting. Wonder where they disappeared to?. I think we need and should allow immigrants from all over but not free will open borders. If you think that leave your door to your house unlocked when you go to work. Issues are to be debated.  we may not agree on everything but I'm not going to stop watching something just cause of someone's political views.  Not everyone is going to agree on things. That's what makes us human.  live and let live my risky boots friend
