The Jontron Post
Oh boy, I can already tell that this is going to cause a massive shit storm. But quite honestly I felt I needed to throw my two cents on this matter.
I like JonTron’s content, I started watching his stuff back in 2015 and I’m not gonna lie, his videos did help get me through some tough times. But there sadly has to come a time when I have to put my foot down and say enough is enough. And I’m sorry but, I cannot support Jon or his content anymore.
For those that are out of the loop, here’s what happened in a nutshell. Jontron got into a two hour debate stream with a guy named Steven Bonnell and the main topic was immigration. Now I wanna make it clear that while I do disagree with a lot of what Jon said, that’s not why I’m upset, I’m upset because while I was listening to this, A sad realization hit me and that realization was that the wacky lovable JonTron in the videos is nothing more than a made up façade. And that the real Jon Jafari is just an asshole.
His entire talking points were just /pol/ arguments and that type of shit doesn’t fly in actual debates, it just made him come off as an idiot whose entire political views come from /pol/ threads.
/pol/ is just the far right version of Tumblr, it’s just an echo chamber for neo Nazis, white supremacists and brain dead Trump supporters. (I can already hear them all angrily typing away on their keyboards while screaming “CCCCCCCCCCUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKK” at the top of their lungs while reading this post) so it’s not exactly a place to go to if you want “unbiased” political viewpoints that go against the far left media.
Yes, I know that I said that JonTron was entitled to his own opinions and that as long he keeps his political views out of his videos than I would still continue to support him, but I can’t do that anymore, because now I know that the real Jon is an asshole who bases all his political viewpoints on stuff that he read on /pol/. And I’m sorry but, I can’t support assholes.
That’s the reason why I will never buy anything written by Brian Michael Bends, Dan Slott, Nick Spencer, Mark Waid and Jason Aaron because all those guys are far left assholes that treat people with different political views like shit because they aren’t used to living outside of their echo chambers.
And that’s where I feel Jon is headed, he’s starting to act more and more like an intolerant /pol/tard and I wouldn’t be shocked if he starts calling everyone who disagrees with him or shares a different viewpoint a cuck or SJW.
If you still want to support his work, go right ahead, I’m not going to tell you to boycott him because he said something that hurt my feelings. Just understand that I cannot do the same.
That’s all I’m going to say on the matter. If you wanna call me a cuck/SJW/crybaby or whatever, then go ahead, I really don’t give a shit. But from this moment on, I cannot support JonTron’s work any longer.
