Back when I played Halo a ton, I once screamed, “I will scatter your fucking teeth in your grandmother’s garden! Maybe new grandchildren will grow! Grandchildren she can be proud of! Grandchildren that don’t slurp major goblin dick at video games!” so, like. Yeah, you unearth some pretty weird, horrible words during HEATED GAMING MOMENTS, but certainly not racial slurs.
you fucking degenerates: it was an accident!!!!!! it just slipped out!!!!!!! he forgot he was live!!!!!!! IT WAS A HEATED GAMING MOMENT!!!!!!!!
me: thinks about vinny from vinesauce, someone who exclusively does livestreams, someone who has had plenty of Heated Gaming Moments and once got so enraged at continuously losing at mario kart that he literally threw up, but has still never accidentally said a fucking racial slur

But it’s anti-fascists that people should be worried about, right?
“you should be branded as terrorists just as much as the KKK“
I’m so livid about this entire PewDiePie situation.
He’s been given so many chances, and yet he is still making loads of money with people protecting him and not once has he genuinely apologized or seemed sorry about the things he said. It’s always followed up with dubstep music, jumpcuts, and other sarcastic remarks and jokes.
The Firewatch creator also wants to take down Felix playthrough of the game, as well as ban him from buying/playing any other game by them and people are mad about that? Like, any sane god damn person would disassociate themselves with someone throwing the N-word around, as well as spreading anti-semitic bs
And some people will defend him with “Words are just words”, and I’m losing my shit over that. I’ve heard that excuse when using the n-word, the f-word and generally when saying other problematic shit. Words are NOT just fucking words. Words are what got humanity here, words are how we communicate, words are what keeps this fucking shit society moving. If you stand by the mentality of “Words just being words”, then you NEVER get to be emotionally affected by words every again. Because words are just words and hold no meaning or value to them right?
No, they fucking do, and the people who say this shit knows that, but it’s different when its racial slurs and general assholery, because they don’t want to look bad.
Words are not just words. Words hold meaning. Words hold history.
Words define you. And if you throw them around without thinking twice and you don’t respect history and the people it affected and will affect, then you fucking don’t deserve an audience like the one Felix has.
“But PewDiePie doesn’t mean it! It’s just something he says”, cool, doesn’t make it better. Now he isn’t an ACTUAL™ racist, he is just, you know, normalizing racism
I know many of you are nostalgic about him, because he used to be a somewhat decent person who could apologize and all but y’all gotta realize that it gets to a point, where you can’t defend him anymore, and if the anti-semitic shit didn’t make it for you, then please let this be, because there’s nothing redeemable about this.
At this point the only people who’re Pewdiepie stans are passively racist.
Like that was obvious to people in the know that being anti-Semitic for shock humor isn’t satire, it’s just anti-semitism. But that situation is somehow so abstract for some people that they can make the logical leaps to call it “satire.”
But you can’t tell me some white dude who when in a “heated gaming moment” shouts racial slurs doesn’t have some deep seeded racism.
Racial slurs as comedic material is the refuge of White Boys
™ who grew up on South Park, XBox Live, 4chan and have no socialization skills outside of that. How else could you have so many disconnected to the point that they think that the n-word is a meme like That Feels Guy or some shit.
Youtubers as a collective will go ON AND ON about how this is their job and they make money doing it, and how they deserve respect (they do). But then the second any group begins to hold them to the same standards we would hold a professional in any other job, suddenly they’re screeching about how “GOSH IT’S JUST VIDEOS ON THE INTERNET CALM DOWN Y’ALL.”
You can have it one way or the other. Either your profession deserves respect or you’re a bunch of yahoos on the internet and should be treated and derided as such. You can’t be serious professionals when you want respect and then helpless nobodies when the tides turn against you. Use some of that ad revenue on a PR guy if you’re that nervous about your inability to keep your mouth shut and not make racism the butt of your jokes.
Like, I’ve got fucking two thousand readers and I treat my writing/business account with more seriousness than people who have three to sixteen million viewers. I make a tiny fraction of what they do and I treat my position with more dignity and my supporters and fans with more respect.
If you’re going to be a celebrity, realize what that fucking means and be a fucking adult when people treat you like the actual celebrities with actual reach and influence that you are. And if this is going to be something you get paid for? That makes it a job. And I guarantee that if someone brings your manager at McDonalds a video of you shouting racial slurs at a customer? Your ass would be fired there, too.
Romani people exist okay? We exist, and we experience
racism, and prejudice and fucking casual hatred and erasure and constant, never
ending microaggressions and if you are a white activist I can almost guarantee
you are not fucking helping.
Stop giving the total number of Holocaust victims as six
million, it was nearly twice that. Better yet, just stop using the Holocaust as
a rhetorical device in general if you’re not Jewish or Romani.
But okay fine you wanna talk about the Holocaust? Lets talk
about the fucking Holocaust.
Did you know entire dialects of our language went extinct
because everyone who spoke them was killed?
Did you know Romani children were the favorites of the Nazi
scientists for experimentation because they were easily bribed with chocolate
and toys? Josef Mengele (May he burn in every afterlife) sewed two four-year-old
twin children together, back to back. Their names were Guido and Ida and their own
mother had to kill them out of mercy.
Non-romani and non-Jewish people need to stop comparing what
is happening to the Holocaust because guess what? You don’t understand our fear.
You don’t understand how we’re feeling. I watched the fucking president sign an
order to ban Muslim people from entering this country and now I cant stop
having nightmares about brown triangles and fucking gas chambers.
and you do not
know how this feels, you do not understand the visceral cultural memory that
exists in ever Jewish and Romani person; I guarantee you do not get it.
In Mississippi you can still fine a Rom for moving to your
county. Texas law refer to Prostitutes, Vagabonds and G*psies in the same
breath and fines all of them $500 for existing in public. In Pennsylvania it is
illegal to even be Romani without a license. A license to exist, a license to
be allowed to be alive. And that’s just in the U.S, where I live. Romani
children in Europe still go to segregated
And I don’t have an Instagram anymore because I was sick of
seeing white girls appropriate my culture and call themselves g*psies as if it wasn’t
a slur, insisting that they just love my culture so much and yet none of them are
willing to defend me against the Nazis who want to finish killing my people
I wonder if my survival will be predicated on how happy I can
keep my racist white family. I wonder if they will be the ones who turn me in.
I look at every white person around me insisting that we need to give Trump a
chance and all can see is their backs turning on me when everything goes to
I cant even go shopping without seeing t-shirt slapped with
racial slurs, watching businesses being built atop my people graves, see our
suffering reduced to an aesthetic, as if Romani aren’t still forcefully
sterilized when they go to the hospital for cold medicine
Are you fucking listening? Do you understand what I’m
telling you? I’m not a prop, im not an aesthetic, im not fucking Halloween
costume, im a real actual person whose people are suffering I am so fucking sick of leftists and
so-called activists who refuse to acknowledge that Romani people even exist,
let alone try to, gods forbid, help us.
The only gadje I ever see defend Romani people are Jewish
people. And that’s great, Jewish people thank you, but why are the only gadje
who care about us getting murdered by Nazis the one’s who are also getting murdered by Nazis?
Stop talking about fucking “peaceful transitions of power”
and “don’t fight hate with hate” and “if you punch Nazis you’re just as bad”
stop fucking telling Jewish and Romani people they are just as bad as the
monsters who fucking slaughtered millions of their people
Fucking hell I don’t even know what the point of this post
is im just so fucking done with your
shitty activism and your half-assed defenses and your “listen to both sides of
the argument even if one side is LITERAL NAZIS” nonsense and your refusal to
listen when people call you out on your bullshit im just done
