To Pewdiepie haters, Wall Street Journal, Youtube and Felix.
(my English is not perfect, sorry for that)
First of all, hey. I am a bro since I can remember. Yet, it doesn’t mean I agree «as a ship» with Pewdiepie on everything, without being capable of differencing right from wrong. I have my own opinions, my own ideology and my own beliefs. And this, is my opinion.
The reason why I am writing this, is because I see how unfair the situation is, the media taking advantage of everything, not caring about how it affects and puts down other people’s lives, in this case, Felix’s. And I want to be heard too, because this is also becoming kind of a personal issue.
First of all, I would like to begin with the Jewish and Hitler issue. Allow me to ask, and open your mind just for a sec: why when someone makes a joke about Jews or Hitler, it becomes such a huge polemic? Stop, and keep reading. Why, when Stalin or Lenin are mentioned, nobody gives a shit? Why everyone knows about the «6 million» Jews that died in the holocaust, but nobody knows about 10-13 million Ukrainians that starved to death because of Stalin in 1923-1933? That was also a holocaust. Yeah, I am Ukrainian. And yes, in case you didn’t know, Ukraine is that country that is being invaded by Russia since 2014. But right, who gives a fuck? It’s always about the Jews.
Second of all, did you people hear about black humor? It’s funny. It is. And I enjoy it. And here goes another thing: you all scream how «nazi» (the right term is National-Socialist or NS btw) Felix is, but you are the only ones who still think that making fun of Jews is such a big deal. You are the only onces who make it feel like the white (race) supremacy is real in people like Pewdiepie, don’t you see that? Because a lot of ethnic groups make fun of others, and nobody gets offended by that, but hey, the Jews man, poor Jews, they are untouchable man, stop. Right?
Anyway, now about Pewds… the media doesn’t care about anything or anyone’s life, only about the money. It’s sad, but that’s how the world works nowadays. And it makes me extremely sad and furious the fact that Wall Street Journal took advantage of everything, and said to Disney and Youtube: «hey, this guy… pewdiewhatever… look what he is doing, he is a nazi, you should do something about it, huh?» hey, Wall Street Journal, how is that you goddam problem, man?! What do YOU care about what Felix does or stops doing? I completely understand that you morons are trying to break Pewds down, because you are too scared of such a powerful, intelligent public figure, that actually can change a lot of things and influence a lot of people for good. And guess what? He succeeded. He got an army and I am not joking. Among those «fat fanboys and little fangirls», as you all enjoy to denominate Pewdiepie’s fans, are university graduates. Me included. And, mark my words: you are digging your own grave, Wall Street Journal. You guys are going down in less than a decade. Old dogs fear new ones, right?
Youtube, I can’t say that I’m disappointed because your reaction was just too obvious. Still, better luck next time taking sides.
Felix, to you: I don’t know you, but I do know two things about you, and those are that you are honest and that you do not give up. So, don’t. You got this huge gift of being such an influential public figure. I want you to know that you can change a lot of stuff and a lot of minds. A lot of people will try to put you down, but if you give up, that means they win. And as far as I know, the bad guys can’t win. I believe in you. I do and 53 million people too.
I know you hate quotes like this, butttt…. Be the change you want to see in the world.
Hussie drawing attention to the format differences is pretty interesting, particularly as I’d often seen ‘but all the kids strife’ as counterarguments to accusations of abuse. Now, I’m basing this on my memory, but all the other kids’ strife scenes with their guardians are interactive flashes. The player can click through as many times as they want and then abscond. As Hussie notes, Dave’s strife pages are not like this. The player, and Dave, have no agency to select moves or escape. They have to take it. Dave is also the only kid that looks physically damaged at the conclusion of the strife. It is definitely portrayed through the form in a different way than the others.
