YouTube star PewDiePie has accused the mainstream media of attacking independent media outlets due to the fact that the public, en masse, are turning away from old school media.
The Swedish comedian – who has a YouTube channel with over 53 million subscribers – recently came under fire and was accused of being “anti-semitic” and a “nazi” after he came out in support of President Trump.
I’m sure you’re aware of what happened over the last week; PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, made a few anti-Semitic jokes and immediately had his ass handed to him by Disney and Google after the soon to be failing Wall St. Journal made a national issue out of the 27 year old’s antics. The WSJ also cobbled together a hit-piece video accompanying their report, which spliced together out of context footage of PewDiePie doing Nazi stuff. It’s been dismantled.
Kids love the guy. They know PewDiePie. So the fact that corporate media thought they could simply gang up and wave a magic wand branding Kjellberg a Nazi was ham-handed and presumptuous. As if WSJ, Disney, Google, Salon, Slate, and the rest of the queued up MSM hit-squad could convince kids and their parents that a guy who’s been speaking directly to them, unfiltered and genuine – is Hitler reincarnate.
In the world of influence, PewDiePie has a lot of power. He’s also woke – meaning, he doesn’t buy the SJW / bleeding-heart narratives which have driven much of America’s easily triggered youth to retarded hysterics. PewDiePie is quite frankly un-poisoning the minds of hyper-sensitive kids raised on kneejerk identity politics; the untriggering of America if you will. PewDiePie was a threat to the MSM.
I don’t remember the WSJ writing about Family Guy’s Jew jokes, or Howard Stern’s Hitler bits, or Louis CK’s Holocaust jokes. I wonder why?
Why the selective outrage WSJ?
The response to the MSM throwing PewDiePie under the bus has been glorious:
First: PewDiePie has issued a response, which – in mere hours, has 99.9% thumbs up with over 800,000 users voting as of this writing – far exceeding it’s view count. Clearly people don’t even need to watch it to know he’s not an anti-Semite.
Next: Reddit’s largest anti-Trump forum /r/news, is on PewDiePie’s side. This is hugedivide-dealing, generation-redpilling stuff. Just scroll down to see what this exceedingly liberal audience has to say about it, then go back to /r/the_donald where free speech is still relatively safe.
And the rest of the internet is on fire in response to the WSJ/Disney/Google’s shit:
Hashtag #PewDiePieDidNothingWrong is trending.

Someone started a Change.org petition to reinstate his show.
PewDiePie got red pilled many months ago & the mainstream entertainment industry is now canning him. https://t.co/Igxlr5I53k
