Andy Warski has made it to the big time! As article bashing him at a site called Right Wing Watch was featured on SPLC’s Hatewatch blog.
Over the past month, prominent alt-right personalities on YouTube have carved out platforms for themselves on a handful of popular livestreamed political debate channels, where they’ve engaged in debates against “classical liberal,” libertarian and “anti-social justice warrior” YouTube talkers.
The series of debates, which have been affectionately dubbed “bloodsports” by their participants, have provided the white nationalist alt-right with its latest chance to thrust itself into the political consciousness of young people and to appeal to members of some of the subcultures that have splintered from the movement in recent months.
One of the most prominent channels hosting these debates belongs to Andy Warski, a YouTube personality who has grown increasingly sympathetic to the alt-right. Warski appeared this month on the alt-right, anti-Semitic podcast “The Daily Shoah,” hosted by host Mike “Enoch” Peinovich, where he said that he thought people falsely believe Peinovich advocates genocide. (The word “Shoah” translates to “Holocaust.”)
In the last few weeks, Warski has hosted debates featuring nearly every popular white nationalist YouTube figure, including J.F. Gariepy, Tara McCarthy, Richard Spencer, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”), Greg Johnson, Peinovich, James Allsup, Nick Fuentes and Tim Gionet (“Baked Alaska”). More often than not, these white nationalist personalities have been paired against conservative opponents who offer incredibly weak pushback to their arguments. On only a few occasions have they faced true, strong counter-arguments. One of these debates—featuring Sargon of Akkad and Tarl Warwick (“Styxhexenhammer666”) debating Spencer and Gariepy—became the highest-trending live video on YouTube during its broadcast. Afterward, Spencer declared that he had “destroyed” in the debate.
This raises the age old question: if their arguments are so bad, wouldn’t you want people to hear them so they’d know how stupid and evil these people are? For instance, I did in fact listen to all of the Sargon/Spencer debate. Everyone had a couple good points, but my conclusion was that Sargon is an idiot and Spencer a smug megalomaniac. I was not suddenly possessed of an obsession with murdering Jews and setting myself up as an elite in an ethnostate.
SJWs know that if their opponents are given a chance to speak, some people will realized that they aren’t all rabid, drooling nazis. And SJWs are so incompetent that they can’t even take down a Fake-Righter like Spencer, so they rarely agree to debate. So the only other option is deplatform and attack anyone willing to let them talk.
