He doesn't directly promote Nazism, but has a tendency to say the n-word (but it's an involuntary response in heated moments, so it's not racist), cosplays as a fascist, follows far-right personalities, occasionally posts links to videos promoting fascist conspiracy theories, pays poor people to hold up signs that say "death to all jews". Then when Disney banned him, instead of apologizing and changing he basically just made excuses for his behavior and his fans defend him.

So, he attracts the kind of people who defend racism as a joke, and then sends them to videos made by actual fascists, and the statistically predictable thing happens. There are a large number of younger people who are being radicalized into white nationalism through him, and he doesn't seem to give a shit either because he's just an asshole who wants to make money or because he's literally a fascist.

Dude's a white supremecist who claims his comments and jokes are taken out of context.

Dude promotes Antisemitism, repeatedly has used racial slurs while streaming and brushed it off as "It's just something you say when you're stressed or mad" type explanations - because using English racial slurs is normal for a Swedish guy to do as a reflex, dude's hired people to hold Death to all Jews signs as satire (this is a decision he made after already getting in to shit for the racial slurs and cost him a deal with Disney), dude follows white supremacists on twitter, dude likes the book Jordan Peterson wrote, ....

Like, there's a point where one can argue that openly consuming certain content, that following and referencing certain people and ideas is just a way of keeping your mind open and making sure you understand opposing viewpoints and so on.

There's also a line you cross at some point where you're.. pretty clearly not doing that and are if not openly supporting are fairly sympathetic towards.

Dude's a racist piece of shit.

It sucks how good youtube is at picking out key words and watching trends, and how bad it is at conveying context or who's for and against what, so I gotta go on private browse if I want to watch a video with "feminism" in the title because I'll get heaps of recommendations with splashy thumbnails and no way to sort through which are "feminism.... should be doing more!" and "feminism... is worse than cancer!".

InnuendoStudios has a series breaking down The Alt-right play book pretty well, gets a little armchair psycho-analysis-y but puts words to some things that have been bothering me a lot.

It's back up now, but YouTube deleted a video from Three Arrows entitled "Jordan Peterson Doesn't Understand Nazism" which goes over a bunch of myths about Nazism spewed by Jordan Peterson, then the entire channel was deleted. YouTube takes fucking forever to go after mainstream fascists and enablers who spew bullshit intended to dehumanize the left and minorities, but a video by someone in Germany who is following German laws on Nazi imagery and hate speech while discussing history in a factual way was taken off, and then the entire channel deleted as soon as they found an excuse.

I was trying to find a video on it, but I don't remember the title or who made it, but it goes through the numbers on how many people are charged with Islamic terrorism vs left-wing terrorism vs right wing terrorism, in proportion to how many people are killed. Left-wing people are far more likely to be charged with terrorism, and right-wing people are far more likely to kill people in terrorist attacks. This is because you can be labeled a terrorist for freeing animals from a lab, but not joining an armed group that promotes violence against marginalized people and those who protect them.

The left has always been far more censored than the right, and of course the "centrists" are standing up for the literal Nazis who are literally supporting an ongoing genocide, then pointing an laughing at the left being censored for promoting facts that counter the narrative that supports the genocide, while also doing nothing themselves about the ongoing genocide.
