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.

Since it seems the theme of my posts right now is "YouTube is awful", here's a video about another awful thing on YouTube:

How PragerU Lies to You - The British Empire by Shaun

Also, his previous video on the topic: How PragerU Lies to You
