Alright, I admit I personally never cared much for Felix's content nor was I ever much into the lets-play craze but this is just ridiculous.
First off, I can't remember exactly where this started but I do remember a bunch of butthurt lefty news outlets lost their shit a few weeks back when he made a joke in a video I saw about how YouTube is not treating him fairly probably because he's white. Being the professional hacks they are, the press assumed he was racist just for saying that. Felix then poked fun at this and made several more videos ridiculing these sites for saying these things and at the end of one video, could be seen dressed in a uniform and started watching a Nazi propaganda video. In another recent vid I saw, he can be heard saying "NEIN" which he immediately corrects himself to "NO". But the motherload of all controversies came when recently, he experimented with a site called Fiverr where he pays people $5 each to do crazy things or something and one guy dressed as Jesus claiming Hitler was right while two other guys held up a sign that said "Death to all Jews". Felix had a horrified reaction when he saw the sign and even apologized immediately.
Of course anyone with half a brain knows this does NOT mean he's a Nazi, he's just joking around and that last part was out of his control. Those guys in the Fiverr videos are just idiots. He obviously wasn't making all these Nazi jokes because he actually agrees with what Hitler did or something, he's doing it to troll the media and because he's a comedian. Again, COMEDY!! It's what comedians do: they joke. Some jokes are a bit crass, yes, but if you have a sense of humor, you can take it as a FRIGGING JOKE. Did Sarah Silverman (a Jew) get fired or banned when she dressed up as Hitler on Conan?
No, because again, it was COMEDY. It's ironic how Disney are ones to talk since they are the company that made movies decades ago with crude racial depictions and there is speculation that Walt Disney himself might have been mildly anti-Semitic (a rumor which seems to have been debunked many times by people who actually knew
Even though I'm not follower of Felix, I admire him for how well he's fired back at these nut-jobs. Over the years I've come to realize that our abilities to make others laugh is sometimes our best weapon. We can either take to the streets like the so-called "Antifa" movement, looting and calling people who we don't agree with a "Nazi" and beating them to a pulp, or we can just use our right to free speech to completely own them in a free marketplace of ideas. Although Felix lives in Sweden and I'm not sure what their stance is on free speech, this is America, folks. We fight our battles over here by voting and by using logic, reason, and sometimes comedy to fight back against someone who is arguing with us. That's our first amendment. Our second amendment is there in case our opponents decide to shoot first and ask questions later.
Why am I talking about this? Well because it's just further proof that the mainstream, far-left media is failing and now it's all blowing up in their stupid faces. They used to just attack Republicans and Trump, now they attack ANYONE. I don't know Felix's political stances but he's not the only one who has been targeted like this. Philip DeFranco isn't even a Trump supporter but he's gotten flack for not being hard enough on Trump (despite having criticized him and his admin out on numerous occasions in his videos.) Again, it's not just Republicans, they're even starting to spew hatred towards Libertarians. Heck, even Antifa is starting to threaten liberals! This is getting worse and worse every day but the backlash is too. Those targeted by the mainstream media are becoming even more empowered by it because they know how to fight back and it only tends to help them! Felix is not done and he'll more likely just get more attention from this. Disney may have dropped him and YouTube may be treating him like crap but people will still flock to him for entertainment and he will still continue his career as a well-known internet personality. These radical lefties and cultural-Marxists can keep bitching about everything they deem problematic but it will only backfire. We are already starting to see people grow more successful from going against the grain and shunning these radical notions. Look at what has already happened to Joy Villa.
Day by day, more and more right-leaning or otherwise centrist celebrities and personalities in the entertainment industry fight back against these people. They are doing the right thing by standing up for what they believe in or just joking around and when people whine about it, they refuse to say sorry. Saying sorry and capitulating to the demands of the corrupt media is not how to go. They won't accept your apology, they don't want to. They will use it to further humiliate you and make you submit to their presumed authority by going on an apology tour. The only way to fight back is with your right to free speech. They are already setting themselves up to lose this battle because the only argument they have is "RACIST!!!" which is no longer an argument.
Even though I've always tended to lean right, I used to wonder if the conservative crowd was going to last since we started off on somewhat shaky grounds being a bit Christian-fundamentalist and saying how rock n' roll is the Devil's music and we need to ban this and that cuz it's not appropriate, bla bla bla. As a kid I had to deal with this. I had to deal with fellow church-goers and other peers talking about how Harry Potter/Pokemon/Bionicle was satanic and junk. Well, like Paul Joseph Watson said, conservatism is the new counter culture. Not like old-school conservatives, I'm talking modern, free-thinking, open-minded ones. They are becoming more tolerant of various minorities like the gay community while the left is becoming more INtolerant. The left still won't accept any conservative/Christian opinions and now they are pathologizing you if you are a cis, white, straight, male. In the meantime, the right is being treated more like the new punk rock. The right is standing up and saying "this is my life, I will do what I want, and you can't tell me what to do!".
As you can see there's been a reversal. The left is going full retard wanting to have things censored cuz it might hurt some people's feelings and supporting the most idiotic of legislation to protect them like banning the first amendment. Some are even taking it far enough that they're calling for or encouraging the assassination of Trump himself or just about anyone who doesn't agree with them. The right would throw hissy fits back then too but we haven't seen anything this crazy. People who are swing voters and tend to register independent and stay in the middle will only take the right side and REAL liberals will join them too. We already have fantastic democrats on our side like Christina Hoff Sommers and Dave Rubin and they are hated by the radical left because, although they share the same politics in many ways, they represent a threat to their mission to take control of western society and brainwash everyone into believing what they want us to believe. It's an Orwellian nightmare out there but the right, libertarians, and true leftists are fighting back. If we play our cards right, hopefully that culture will all just die out over time and we won't have to worry about the prospects of having another civil war.As I said in my entry about how the left will divide America not Trump, proper liberals cannot afford to panic over this. If you are a liberal, a REAL liberal, you can save yourself: just don't stand for any of this. Do not take the side of identity politics, radical feminism, and PC cultural-Marxism. You can be on our side but still keep your democratic beliefs. We will welcome you in, we are friendly. If the media continues these Salemesque witch-hunts, it will eventually collapse on top of them and may kill the Democrat Party but if that does happen, it will be replaced with a more proper liberal party. One that will be more unified with the Republican Party so politics will be better off in western society. If anything, this radical movement will only help to unify the parties as we come together finding common ground.
This controversy with Felix Kjellberg is just the beginning. Felix is a younger up-and-coming celebrity and even though he may not be as well-known or make as much money as the top Hollywood elite, he's still got millions of fans and they will not tolerate this crap. This controversy will help him more than it will hurt him. I've gained more respect for him ever since it started happening. With every new article that comes out whining about political-incorrectness and the next typo that Trump makes in a tweet, the world will see more of this. 2016 was the year people really started to wake up to this detrimental culture and 2017 will be the year they will fight back and the culture will start dying out. Far-left news outlets will go out of business, people will leave the Democratic party, and the saner members of society will become the celebrities and great influencers of tomorrow.
You radical SJWs want a "revolution"? The revolution is already happening and we are winning by simply sitting back and watching as you do our work for us.
