PewDiePie Is Under Attack By The Lügenpresse

This is rapidly becoming an even bigger story since the news broke last night that Disney is cutting ties with PewDiePie:

“Swedish gamer PewDiePie (known IRL as Felix Kjellberg) is the most famous and highest-paid YouTuber in the world. His videos have yielded billions of views, millions of followers, and helped him earn $15 million in 2016. But next year’s figure could be significantly lower following a report from The Wall Street Journal that Disney is ending its deal with PewDiePie for recent anti-Semitic content in his videos. Prior to today, PewDiePie worked with Disney via a joint venture with the Maker Studios, a digital video network that Disney bought in 2014. Though Kjellberg maintained “editorial independence” with Maker Studios, a representative said his anti-Semitic references “went too far” and deemed the videos “inappropriate.”

According to the report, PewDiePie posted a now-deleted video on January 11 which included two men he paid to make and hold up a sign reading “Death to All Jews.” After reviewing his channel, the Journal found that the YouTuber had “posted nine videos that include anti-Semitic jokes or Nazi imagery” between August 2016 and today. …”

PewDiePie is the most popular YouTube channel in the world. He has 55 million subscribers. As a social media brand, he dwarfs the likes of Paul Joseph Watson or Cernovich. Now, YouTube is trying to bully and censor PewDiePie for his alleged anti-Semitism:

“A month after YouTube’s biggest star uploaded a video containing the phrase “Death To All Jews,” the service that once hosted that very content is distancing itself a bit from Felix Kjellberg.

Variety reports that YouTube has cancelled the second season of Scare Pewdiepie, the premium $10-a-month show that sought to scare Kjellberg IRL in elaborate, video-game inspired ways. Additionally, YouTube will also remove Pewdiepie from “Google Preferred,” which is an advertising service for “brand-safe” content (which Pewdiepie is most certainly not, even discounting the nazi jokes.)

Taken together, both of these repercussions will have some kind of effect on Pewdiepie’s actual income, though he will still be able to monetize his videos through normal means on YouTube. In the past, Kjellberg has said that his normal income-per-view on YouTube is low because his brand of ‘edgy’ humor also limits the advertisers that YouTube makes available to him. “My content is not necessarily family friendly, it’s got a bunch of profanity,” Kjellberg said. ….”

The New York Times just published a story on PewDiePie:

“The Disney-owned Maker Studios and YouTube have pulled away from PewDiePie, one of the video platform’s most popular stars, after a report that he had posted several videos featuring anti-Semitic imagery.

Maker Studios said on Monday that it had severed ties with the star, Felix Kjellberg, a Swede better known by his YouTube alias PewDiePie, while YouTube said on Tuesday that it had canceled the release of a coming series and dropped him from a premier advertising program.

The announcements came after The Wall Street Journal reported that Mr. Kjellberg had posted nine anti-Semitic videos since August. …”

Forbes is warning that the the traditional media power brokers are losing control over influencers:

“Brands that have close relationships with influencers need to understand what little control they actually have in this space. Working with influencers is sensitive for both parties involved. When situations like the one with PewDiePie happen not only do things move fast but armies can be forged. Disney and Google are large beasts themselves but ultimately the +50 million subscribers and followers will probably remain loyal to PewDiePie (Twitter chatter seems to suggest this) and will probably be excited to see what he does next. …”

As I was saying yesterday, we’re going through a epochal transition from the huge corporate media conglomerates and vertically delivered Jewish-controlled mass media of the 20th century – news, entertainment, opinion – to the decentralized, horizontally delivered Gentile-controlled social media of the 21st century. PewDiePie’s phenomenal success illustrates that social media gives us the means to find fans all over the world and produce and monetize our own content.

The problem is that the mid-20th century was a time when the mass media came to be unusually concentrated in the hands of a small number of wealthy Jews. It used to be very expensive to publish newspapers and books. It was very expensive to make movies and operate cable television networks. Jewish media elites had enormous power to control the Narrative, establish the dominant taboos and police discourse. Now, thanks to the rise of social media and the smartphone, the barriers to entry are much lower and the mass media is becoming decentralized again.

Social media has its own Jewish media elites like Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, but the nature of it is much harder to control. PewDiePie, for example, is a brand who produces his own content on YouTube. He made himself a star because he had the means to connect directly with a mass audience. There is no Jewish producer with the means to make and break a “star” anymore on social media. That’s what they are trying to do here with PewDiePie. They’re trying force him to conform to their norms.

In order to do that with millions of people producing their own content on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, the Thought Police has to become far more heavy handed and public than it ever was in the past. It has to become a Ministry of Truth. In doing so though, it risks stoking a backlash and arousing further curiosity about taboo subjects.

Please don’t talk about Jews. It invites the obvious question from rebellious youth, “why can’t I talk about Jews?” What are you you hiding from me?

  1. I disagree Hunter.

    PewPewDie will be marginalized and the other leading lights of Youtube will learn, if you want to keep making money you don’t talk “Hate!”. Eventually getting rid of people will be automated. The automated shadow banning is why I stopped bothering with Youtube a couple of years ago. With Facebook and Youtube my posts were only visible to myself.

    The problem with big platforms like Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, etc, is people are too lazy to move off them, when they learn there’s a problem. Example: How many people here dumped Microsoft when they learned they help the NSA spy on their every keystroke? I am betting none.

    If people won’t dump bad platforms, they become the TV monopolies of the past. If you think you can relax and assume you will keep free speech, you have a surprise coming.

    • I’m confident it is a fight they will lose.

      Just look at MySpace. It used to be a huge social media platform. As the costs of social media come down, censorship rises and alternatives emerge, you will see mass migrations to new platforms and demands for more free speech.

      Gab already does all that Twitter does and more. In the early days of the internet, there was much more censorship. Hosting companies engaged in no platforming. Then more hosting companies emerged and the problem dissipated.

      • “Gab already does all that Twitter does and more.”

        Gab was a terrible user experience the last time I tried it. That was a couple of months ago. I will look at it again.

          • When I was last on Gab, I would look at a post on someone’s timeline, but could not see any responses to that post.

            And do they still only allow Gab users to see other Gab user’s posts? That was another big turn off.

        • Gab has improved and there are new features added fairly frequently. I know they launched Gab TV last night online with Vox Day as the guest , this may be the kind of platform Hunter is alluding to. Also Vdare, WND, Michelle Malkin et al are now active on Gab. I think it’s worth a revisit, I’m on Gab every day and paste links from OD all the time.

      • If you are trying to hold onto something, Left or Right, Yankee or Southron, for better or worse, the free market will undermine you.

        • If the free market aren’t regulated to allow free speech, the free market will end free speech.

          Trump was elected because for a short window in our history, the people were allowed free speech on Twitter, but that has been closed off. Trump either fixes this problem, or in 4 years he is gone and it will be back to business as usual.

          • Yes, Mr. Jackson, you’ve got a point there.

            The problem with that is that, when you regulate something governmentally, it’s much harder to undo the oppression.

            It’s no accident there is this short window of free speech that got Trump elected – it was because the internet is not regulated.

            No panacea anywhere, Mr. Jackson, but, I am not a socialist of any stripe, but, a Confederate.


            Because I ain’t all that fond of government.

            States Rights is what I say.

    • They can’t dump the platforms because there isn’t enough competition. Trump should be breaking up these monopolies, but he’s either too stupid or shortsighted to do that. Break them up and introduce competition to the market.

    • I said over at DS, that PewDiePie should tell all of his viewers (53 Million) to boycott the new Disney movie that’s coming out “Beauty and the Beast.”

      Because Emma Watson (the feminist former Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter franchise) is annoying talentless and a tramp, and Disney is run by a lot of Jews.

      What a perfect storm to boycott!
      It opens 3/17.

      How much righteous anger could the alt right and all of the Normie’s that voted for Trump cause, if this took off?

      It would be Yuuuuuuge.

  2. The internet is the AK47 of the Information Age.

    Cheap and hard to jam and an equalizer.

  3. What’s going on now with the de-centralization and de-judaization of the mass media is a reversion to how things used to be. Before the greedy, scheming kikes moved in gentile-owned book publishers, newspapers, etc offered a wild variety of news, commentary and entertainment, whereas the jewsmedia is blandly uniform with its anti-White, jew-supremacist propaganda.

    This sort of reminds me of when astronaut David Bowman deactivated the all-powerful HAL 9000 computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  4. Off topic but maybe interesting to you, at Georgetown U there is a paid off prof who makes apologia for slavery and rape under sharia

  5. good lord, it’s not like he was wearing a Pepe shirt.
    & even if he did, it’s not like he did:)
    2 bad he didn’t give Pepe shirts to those 2 adorable dark li’l indians!

  6. Y’all are harping on the “JEWS LOSE AGAIN!!!” rhetoric but Pewd’s name is KJELLBERG. Jews jewing Jews jewing Jews

  7. I can’t figure out why people find him so entertaining, but if he ends up fighting this somehow and doesn’t back down from his “anti-semitism,” I will be in his court.

    Looking at his comments, it doesn’t look like he’s anywhere near addressing the JQ, but he can still be useful if he just goes on fearlessly poking at the jews even without bad intent.

  8. You can literally say whatever you want about any group but Jews on Facebook and Youtube. I’ve actually reported comments and videos FAR worse and nothing has ever come of them. Already in some of the comments sections, I’ve seen people of all races ask why that is so? Why do these people get some kind of special protection that the rest of us don’t?
