YouTuber PewDiePie Withdraws Massive Donation to the ADL and Stands Up to Hard-Left Bullies

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-2-4-620x317 YouTuber PewDiePie Withdraws Massive Donation to the ADL and Stands Up to Hard-Left Bullies youtube Terrorism progressives Popular Culture Politics PewDiePie Internet Front Page Stories Felix Kjellberg Featured Story donations Christchurch Shooting Alt Right ADL

The largest YouTuber on the planet, Felix Kjellberg (a.k.a. PewDiePie), became a name associated with the shooting in Christchurch when the shooter said “subscribe to PewDiePie” before walking into the mosque and murdering everyone he could find.

This clearly put Kjellberg into a state of grief that he didn’t talk about much, and despite the reality of the situation being that he had no part in the killing, he clearly carried some guilt. It didn’t help that the mainstream media was pointing at this incident as proof that PewDiePie is the alt-right leader they’ve always said he was.

Fast forward and you have the YouTube star passing the 100 million subscriber mark, which is monumental. To celebrate, Kjellberg declared that he was going to make a large donation to a charity, and chose the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Needless to say, the backlash against the move was massive.

The ADL had previously attacked Kjellberg and congratulated Disney for severing ties with him after a video which displayed Nazi imagery and two men holding a sign that said: “Death to all Jews.” The video was proving that you can find anybody who will do anything online for money, and Kjellberg has denounced antisemitism and bigotry many times since.

What’s more, many of Kjellberg’s fans were upset due to the ADL being a part of various councils that advise social media companies on who and what they should restrict or ban, creating a lopsided political atmosphere on many social networks.

Kjellberg initially defended his choice to donate to the ADL in a Twitter post.

He has since deleted this tweet, as according to his latest video, he has changed his mind about the entire thing and has withdrawn his donation to the ADL.

“To be fair, I saw it as an opportunity to put an end to the alt-right claims that have been thrown against me,” Kjellberg said.

Kjellberg continued by stating that he felt some responsibility for the Christchurch shooting, but that donating to the ADL was not the right way to go about it. He also mentioned that some things came out about the organization during the time that he learned about, and withdrew the donation.

Kjellberg continued by saying he would have known all this if he hadn’t rushed to make this decision and explained that this decision was made while he was planning his wedding, and with the 100 million subscriber deadline coming up.

“I’m sorry for all the confusion, and I’m sorry for messing this up,” he concluded before going into his intended video.

Despite the mistake that he made, Kjellberg deserves both our sympathy and our appreciation. Not only did he listen to the words of his fans, but in the end, he did the right thing and didn’t take the route of appeasement, which too many people in the spotlight do in order to make bullies stop bullying them.

But I’d like to point out a glaring problem in relation to how people are treated by these bullies, namely in the media.

The Christchurch shooter promoted Kjellberg right before a murdering spree and the media used this opportunity to bully Kjellberg, and pair him with supremacist radicals. I can’t imagine what kind of hurt Kjellberg was feeling when he saw the video initially, and I can’t imagine how it was compounded by articles and tweets sent to him, all declaring that this was his fault.

It’s horrible that people with an ax to grind would go so far as to put the actions of a madman on an innocent person strictly because he ran afoul of them politically a few times.

I want to commend Kjellberg for not caving to these people, as they really don’t deserve to be caved to. More people should follow his lead.

Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x269 Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs youtube violent Video signs Politics Liberals insane Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story deranged democrats Daily Caller Crazy Conservatives

One of the odder occurrences after Donald Trump’s election has been the propensity for certain liberals to simply lose it. Who can forget the viral video of the woman screaming at the sky as Donald Trump was sworn in?

Just in case you haven’t been exposed to the levels of insanity currently propagating on college campuses and within left wing activism, the Daily Caller has put together a montage of just how crazy even the mere site of conservative thought is driving people on the left.

Some of these even surprised me.

There’s a good case that most of these people should be committed. The vulgarity, the violent outbursts, and the inability to control one’s emotions. At one point, you see a young women cursing and then deciding that poll dancing on a street sign made sense in her protest of ICE. At another, you see a woman shrieking in terror at the mere site of a conservative holding a sign. People run over to make sure she’s not being harmed. Nope, she’s just that unhinged.

Politics is doing something to our society and it’s not good for a lot of people. If your reaction to those on the opposite side of the aisle is to legitimately lose your mind, screaming and flailing, you shouldn’t be following politics. You should be asking yourself why your life is so devoid of purpose that such a reaction would happen from within you.

Report: Vox Is Parting Ways with YouTuber Carlos Maza

Westlake Legal Group AP_945566433808-620x329 Report: Vox Is Parting Ways with YouTuber Carlos Maza youtube vox twitter Steven Crowder Social Media Politics News Media Internet Front Page Stories firing Featured Story Conservatives carlos maza Allow Media Exception

According to various reports, YouTube pariah and Vox video creator Carlos Maza will not be working at Vox anymore.

Maza recently obtained infamy after starting an online war with conservative comedian Steven Crowder that caused YouTube to crack down on which content gets monetized. This move effectively put many content creators bank accounts in danger and made Vox and Maza seem like villains.

According to the New York Post, Vox initially supported Maza in his war against Crowder, but as his battle became a crusade, Vox began distancing itself:

Initially, sources said, Vox executives had supported him in his battle with Crowder. But as Maza wanted to escalate the all-out war, their support seemed to wane.

Maza recently posted on Twitter that he went through the “shakiest” few weeks of his life, and posted a joke that he’s going through “trama.”

Whether or not this pertains to his parting of ways with Vox or not is still not known.

It should also be noted that while mainstream news outlets are reporting that Maza is out, there still has been no confirmation as to the validity of the reports.

Rumors have also been spreading based on these reports as to the nature of Maza and Vox parting ways. Various reports on Reddit claim that Maza has been fired from Vox. This would support some of the odd posts Maza has been posting about “trauma” and Vox’s unwillingness to follow Maza into a war with all of conservatism. Maza had also turned his attention toward Fox News host Tucker Carlson as well.

RedState will definitely be keeping its eyes on this story, but if this is the case, and Maza and Vox are parting ways over Maza’s zealousness, then it would show that even the mainstream media isn’t ready to take on the conservative movement, at least at its current level of strength.

YouTube Is Trying to Stop Fredo from Bringing Down Fredo by Deleting Cuomo’s Meltdown Video

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-12-620x317 YouTube Is Trying to Stop Fredo from Bringing Down Fredo by Deleting Cuomo’s Meltdown Video youtube Violence The Godfather Politics Media harassment Front Page Stories Fredo Featured Story CNN Chris Cuomo bullying Allow Media Exception

I know it was you, Fredo.

The greatest thing flying around the internet right now is CNN host Chris Cuomo suddenly donning an Italian-American tough-guy accent and losing it all over this guy who called him “Fredo.”

For those of you who don’t know why that’s insulting, in Godfather 1 and 2, Fredo is the weak brother in the family that *spoilers* ultimately betrays the family. Calling someone “Fredo” is an insult as it’s essentially labeling someone as the weak link in the chain or the softest person on someone’s team.

Cuomo doth protest a little too much after being called Fredo, and it’s understandable. It rings a bit true in his case.

The video went viral as soon as it hit the internet thanks to this hilariousness of watching Cuomo awkwardly try to be a tough guy by threatening to throw the guy calling him “Fredo” down a flight of stairs.

But, like all things fun, YouTube decided the video went against its terms of service and banned the video from being seen on its platform. According to one Twitter user, YouTube did so because “Fredo” was deemed an “ethnic slur,” which it’s not. According to another, it promotes harassment and bullying. My question would be, who is bullying who?

The only bullying happening here is Cuomo attempting — and I use the word “attempting” here very literally — to intimidate the guy calling him “Fredo.” If Cuomo had just been called the name and shrugged it off, it would have been a non-story. Instead, Fredo took it very close to heart and adopted a tough guy act that the world saw through.

As it goes viral, YouTube comes in with the assist and takes down the video from its platform.

This is the same platform that features actual World Star street fights on its platforms. You don’t have to look far for a video of a feminist harassing pro-life people or see a video of Antifa doing its thing.

Making fun of Fredo Cuomo, though? Well, that’s too far.

It’s all a waste of effort, though. YouTube can’t keep track of all the mirrors and duplicates that will now populate the internet thanks to the Streisand effect that censorship causes. It also doesn’t own the myriad of platforms outside of its territory, where this video of Fredo is going viral, even as you read this.

The question is, who out there is trying to protect Fredo’s reputation with information suppression? Why, despite the millions of videos on its platforms that feature content far worse than this, do they suddenly get strict with their rules for Cuomo? Is CNN working with YouTube? Have they tried to get the video pulled elsewhere?

Our Obsession Over Celebrity Is Hitting Our Children Hard, and China Will Take Advantage Of It

Westlake Legal Group Astronaut-620x465 Our Obsession Over Celebrity Is Hitting Our Children Hard, and China Will Take Advantage Of It youtube Vlog Technology Internet Generation Z Front Page Stories Featured Story China astronaut America

Over the weekend I saw an article detailing the results of a Harris Poll that was commissioned by LEGO that focused on what children aspired to be in various countries. What I saw was a bit unnerving.

According to the poll, 56 percent of Chinese children said they wanted to be astronauts when they grow up. Meanwhile, only 11 percent of U.S. children wanted anything to do with that.

No, for children in the United States, the number one career choice was to grow up and be a YouTuber or vlogger of some sort at 29 percent.

This worried me, because it showed me how far the United States has fallen in terms of how high it holds up its celebrities. Don’t get me wrong, I watch YouTube for nearly everything, including my news. The vlogger has become just as much a celebrity as the people on the silver screen, only we don’t call them celebrities per se, we call them “influencers.”

And therein lies the draw for American kids. The influencer is just as recognized as the celebrity with the added benefit of never having to leave your home to be one. They get all the recognition and and fame for their work, including the perks of money and free stuff from sponsors. As such, American kids don’t want to grow up to be Neil Armstrong, they’d rather grow up to be PewDiePie.

Instead of exploring the stars, they’d rather sit in front of a camera and talk about their thoughts and opinions. I realize that’s rich coming from a guy whose job is to talk about his thoughts and opinions, but at least I have the excuse that I fell into it by mistake. The very first thing I wanted to be as a kid was an astronaut.

We’ve become so obsessed with ourselves and how people look at us. Our social media fixation has showed us a world where everyone is looking at us and applauding for being entertaining. Meanwhile, Chinese children are actually looking toward the future and figuring out how to get off this Kardashian infested rock where a makeup tutorial is more viewed than news about the latest scientific breakthrough.

I have to say, however, that I’m not blaming the children. Generation Z was born into this. This is the world that they know and understand. The successful people, at least to them, are the ones who are sitting in their living rooms with a camera and making millions of dollars talking to people. It’s something that they can do too, right now. They don’t need training or need to slog through horrible times in order to finally achieve their goal. They can just pull out the high-tech computer in their pocket, switch on an app and begin broadcasting.

American culture is so infectious and addictive that Gen Z never had a chance. The fastest and most effective way to change the world now is to become a recognized face within it.

Chinese culture has not fallen to that, however. Not, at least, to the extent the west has.

And while we’re looking at ourselves in our computer screens while we talk, Chinese children are looking at the stars. While we obsess over celebrity, Chinese children obsess over the future. Rest assured, the day is approaching swiftly when we’ll look up and see China above us both figuratively and very, very literally.

Proof YouTube Is Censoring Viral Independent News Videos In Favor of Lukewarm Cable News Network Videos

Every day, YouTube pushes a list of news videos into my feed that they term “Top News.”

As you can see from the screenshot I took, they are nothing but mainstream and cable channels from different countries. The subjects include the announcement of Ross Perot’s death, a dancing cockatoo, and a car that caught on fire during a gender reveal. Westlake Legal Group tweeten-1562710364207 Proof YouTube Is Censoring Viral Independent News Videos In Favor of Lukewarm Cable News Network Videos youtube tim pool Politics News Internet Front Page Stories Featured Story David Pakman Corporations Censorship Allow Media Exception

Now let’s take a look at some independent news personalities and their videos.

Tim Pool’s latest videos far and away outclass any of these videos by miles, and some of this stuff is hard hitting news. Pool’s coverage of the border crisis and politicians involved with it has been majorly watched videos.

Now, you may say that the videos from the “Top News” picks are only hours old, and fair enough. However, going over the video content of channels like CBS News, the majority struggle to crack 10,000 views. Those that do go beyond still very rarely ever top Pool’s selection of news videos.

Compare that to progressive independent news source David Pakman whose recent offering outclasses CBS News as well.

The Quartering on YouTube, which primarily covers cultural news, also consistently outperforms the major news networks.

Despite these channels consistently discussing news, it’s not considered good enough to be “Top News” according to YouTube. A dancing cockatoo, however, is.

Pakman posted a video discussing this push of YouTube’s for more mainstream news to take center stage, where in he discusses just how bad it’s become. In the video he points to a graph that shows the recommendations from YouTube toward independent news, and you can see for yourself the recommendations generated from the YouTube algorithm push mainstream news channels far more than independent news channels.

Pakman notes that he spent the weekend researching this and attempted to see who was gaining the recommendations that would have otherwise gone to these independent channels. Pakman shows us a graph generated by monitoring YouTube’s algorithm that shows the recommendations “dive off a cliff” at May 1st, where as CNN, Fox News, and other corporate news channels skyrocketed.

Pakman wanted to stress that this wasn’t just affecting conservative news channels, but news channels across the ideological spectrum. In other words, if you’re not a corporate entity, YouTube probably won’t recommend you.

Pool also posted a graph that shows what Pakman is talking about.

YouTube is likely abandoning creators and personalities that base themselves on their platform due to the fact that it’s become too “dangerous” for it to do otherwise.

Enjoy dancing parrots as your “Top News” in your sterile YouTube experience.

YouTube Engineer Stabs, Punches, and Runs Over Innocent People During Drug Fueled Rampage

 

Westlake Legal Group Capture-2-620x346 YouTube Engineer Stabs, Punches, and Runs Over Innocent People During Drug Fueled Rampage youtube shooting police News Front Page Stories Featured Story Drugs crime California attempted murder Allow Media Exception acid trip

YouTube not only makes crazy decisions, it also staffs crazy people, at least offering us some explanation as to the unmitigated disaster that it’s swiftly becoming.

According to KTVU, 32-year-old Betai Koffi celebrated the Fourth of July with friends by taking seven times the amount of acid his compatriots did. This sent him on a rampage that ended up injuring eight people, including four of his friends. Luckily — and I’m not using that word lightly — no one died despite the use of deadly weapons, including Koffi who was shot three times by police.

For his actions, Koffi now faces six felonies, including carjacking, multiple assaults, and two counts of attempted murder. The story of how he accumulated these charges in the course of a night is nearly unbelievable:

He punched, stabbed, and choked his friends when they tried to calm him down, and keep him inside the rental.

Determined to leave, he crashed his rental car into the garage, and took off on foot.

He encountered a security guard who patrols the subdivision, and attacked him.

“He picks up a landscape light, yanks it out of the ground, and stabs the security guard with the pointed metal end of it,” described Sgt. Crum, “and knocked the security guard down.”

Koffi took off in the guard’s pickup truck and mowed down a couple walking along the street.

Then he drove onto a bluff, aiming for another couple, who dove out of his way, but a second woman was hit.

The incident stopped when officers arrived on scene and fired on Koffi with their sidearms:

The bizarre incident ended swiftly, once a Sheriff’s deputy and CHP officer arrived.

By that time, Koffi had driven through a private yard, hit a wall, and continued back onto the road.

When he saw the law enforcement vehicles, he drove straight toward them, and the deputy who was out of his car, began firing.

Koffi continued accelerating and rammed the CHP cruiser, amid the gunshots.

He was hit at least three times through the windshield and airlifted to the hospital, along with the first woman he ran over.

KTVU reported that the shooting is currently under investigation, which is standard procedure. The station also reported that we may get the body camera footage of the incident in the near future.

It’s a miracle that everyone survived the encounter, and thankfully no one’s life was irreparably damaged by Koffi.

Let’s hope we don’t see what YouTube’s algorithm would look like if it were a person any time in the future.

Why Silicon Valley Tech Giants May Truly Believe They’re Not Being Biased When They Clearly Are

Westlake Legal Group socialmedia-620x331 Why Silicon Valley Tech Giants May Truly Believe They’re Not Being Biased When They Clearly Are youtube vijaya gadde twitter Technology Silicon Valley Jack Dorsey Google Front Page Stories Featured Story facebook Culture California bias Abuse of Power

We know that Silicon Valley is filthy with politically biased people who’ve been brought to radical forms of their leftist ideological positions thanks to a well-maintained bubble. Any position, thought, or fact-based reasoning that runs against the hard left hive mind is immediately punished and/or cast out.

You can ask James Damore about that.

Major companies like Google, Twitter, and Facebook have been demonstrating their bias left and right. To anyone paying attention, it’s not a mystery that if you lean to the right, or have a right-leaning opinion on a specific subject if you say it loud enough you might find yourself on the business end of Silicon Valley’s ire.

Live Action simply expressed pro-life views and Pinterest labeled them as “porn” so that they wouldn’t show up in feeds. It was unearthed recently that Google employees were trying to find ways to restrict sitings of figures like Dennis Prager and Ben Shapiro because they were Nazis guiding others on the path to Nazism, both of whom, mind you, are orthodox Jews.

To be sure, these are radical positions and radical actions to take on Silicon Valley’s part, but the frightening thing is that I’m not entirely sure they understand that. In fact, based on what I’ve seen and heard from them, they truly believe that their positions aren’t at all extreme and that their actions do reflect neutral stances.

In fact, YouTube just released a tweet essentially claiming that they are politically neutral right after James O’Keefe exposed Google for taking ideological stances within their business.

The ratio they are currently receiving for this tweet is nothing short of brutal.

We see this attitude being struck by industry heads and employees constantly, even in front of Congress where they deny taking any stances when it comes to how they conduct business, despite the deluge of evidence that they are.

You’re probably stunned that they could lie this blatantly to the people, and are feeling pretty insulted that they think you’re that stupid. Maybe some of them truly do think that, but I have to wonder if they actually don’t understand the extreme positions they have found themselves in ideologically.

I’m perfectly willing to believe this may be the case due to an interview I watched on the Joe Rogan Experience, where Tim Pool and Joe Rogan are essentially confronting Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Twitter “Trust and Safety” Lead Vijaya Gadde.

I can’t give you a specific quote within this back and forth because this is a 20-minute debate where every sentence said holds weight, but the summary is that despite Rogan and Pool trying to show Gadde how the rules they’ve created — this conversation specifically revolves around Twitter’s rules around interactions with transgendered people — were ideologically bent, neither Gadde or Dorsey seemed to be able to wrap their heads around their own bias.

As far as Gadde was concerned, they truly were doing the right thing by silencing and punishing people for taking a position that is ideologically different from the left’s.

I advise you to take a moment to watch this exchange, as it’s incredibly eye-opening.

Again, I don’t want to make this interaction a blanket statement on all of Silicon Valley’s movers and shakers. I think, however, it is a solid look at the lens through which they view the world.

For instance, Gadde can be ridiculed for a lot of things that she said during her interaction with Pool and Rogan, but there were times when it looked like she was being introduced to a completely foreign concept that she couldn’t quite wrap her head around in the moment.

We should consider the idea that the ideological bubble in which these tech giants live is so thick that they don’t understand or even see what’s right in front of their faces.

Their false sense of morality, fostered by their immediate peers and social structure, is a result of truly not knowing any better due to the fact that any other kind of ideological standpoint is being diligently kept out. It’s kept out because the culture demands to look at ideological stances outside of the body politic as something dangerous. This fuels a perpetual cycle and creates something akin to self-induced brainwashing.

This theory would explain why YouTube can make statements that are blatantly false with all seriousness.

I could be wrong and the people silencing, deplatforming, and punishing others for their viewpoints are truly that horrible. They may be that childish and married to their ignorance purely out of spite for those who tell them they’re wrong. However, based on what I’ve seen and heard, I’m not 100 percent certain of that.

Why Silicon Valley Tech Giants May Truly Believe They’re Not Being Biased When They Clearly Are

We know that Silicon Valley is filthy with politically biased people who’ve been brought to radical forms of their leftist ideological positions thanks to a well-maintained bubble. Any position, thought, or fact-based reasoning that runs against the hard left hive mind is immediately punished and/or cast out.

You can ask James Damore about that.

Major companies like Google, Twitter, and Facebook have been demonstrating their bias left and right. To anyone paying attention, it’s not a mystery that if you lean to the right, or have a right-leaning opinion on a specific subject if you say it loud enough you might find yourself on the business end of Silicon Valley’s ire.

Live Action simply expressed pro-life views and Pinterest labeled them as “porn” so that they wouldn’t show up in feeds. It was unearthed recently that Google employees were trying to find ways to restrict sitings of figures like Dennis Prager and Ben Shapiro because they were Nazis guiding others on the path to Nazism, both of whom, mind you, are orthodox Jews.

To be sure, these are radical positions and radical actions to take on Silicon Valley’s part, but the frightening thing is that I’m not entirely sure they understand that. In fact, based on what I’ve seen and heard from them, they truly believe that their positions aren’t at all extreme and that their actions do reflect neutral stances.

In fact, YouTube just released a tweet essentially claiming that they are politically neutral right after James O’Keefe exposed Google for taking ideological stances within their business.

The ratio they are currently receiving for this tweet is nothing short of brutal.

We see this attitude being struck by industry heads and employees constantly, even in front of Congress where they deny taking any stances when it comes to how they conduct business, despite the deluge of evidence that they are.

You’re probably stunned that they could lie this blatantly to the people, and are feeling pretty insulted that they think you’re that stupid. Maybe some of them truly do think that, but I have to wonder if they actually don’t understand the extreme positions they have found themselves in ideologically.

I’m perfectly willing to believe this may be the case due to an interview I watched on the Joe Rogan Experience, where Tim Pool and Joe Rogan are essentially confronting Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Twitter “Trust and Safety” Lead Vijaya Gadde.

I can’t give you a specific quote within this back and forth because this is a 20-minute debate where every sentence said holds weight, but the summary is that despite Rogan and Pool trying to show Gadde how the rules they’ve created — this conversation specifically revolves around Twitter’s rules around interactions with transgendered people — were ideologically bent, neither Gadde or Dorsey seemed to be able to wrap their heads around their own bias.

As far as Gadde was concerned, they truly were doing the right thing by silencing and punishing people for taking a position that is ideologically different from the left’s.

I advise you to take a moment to watch this exchange, as it’s incredibly eye-opening.

Again, I don’t want to make this interaction a blanket statement on all of Silicon Valley’s movers and shakers. I think, however, it is a solid look at the lens through which they view the world.

For instance, Gadde can be ridiculed for a lot of things that she said during her interaction with Pool and Rogan, but there were times when it looked like she was being introduced to a completely foreign concept that she couldn’t quite wrap her head around in the moment.

We should consider the idea that the ideological bubble in which these tech giants live is so thick that they don’t understand or even see what’s right in front of their faces.

Their false sense of morality, fostered by their immediate peers and social structure, is a result of truly not knowing any better due to the fact that any other kind of ideological standpoint is being diligently kept out. It’s kept out because the culture demands to look at ideological stances outside of the body politic as something dangerous. This fuels a perpetual cycle and creates something akin to self-induced brainwashing.

This theory would explain why YouTube can make statements that are blatantly false with all seriousness.

I could be wrong and the people silencing, deplatforming, and punishing others for their viewpoints are truly that horrible. They may be that childish and married to their ignorance purely out of spite for those who tell them they’re wrong. However, based on what I’ve seen and heard, I’m not 100 percent certain of that.
