I have been growing up in a white conservative small town dumpsterfire which I am currently trying to escape. Since there’s not really any kind of queer or leftist community here I don’t have anyone to exchange my thoughts with in real life at the moment. That being said please don’t be super harsh on me if my thoughts are dumb or uneducated but also I really appreciate being called out for biases. Also English isn’t my first language but I‘ll try my best.
I‘ve been watching a lot of you tube videos by feminist, leftists, trans people, anarchists etc and noticed all the channels I’ve been following have at least one “let’s point out the biases on these white supremacist/ alt right/ nazi channels”. One that a lot of people talk about is the amazing atheist and how he was bashing that 14 year old (?) trans person for pointing out all white people have racist biases we need to work on. So a lot of people seem to watch and enjoy those leftist videos but that’s where it ends. I haven’t seen attempts to do anything against the alt right channels except for uploading videos that are going to be watched by a leftist fan base that already disagrees with the amazing atheist and others alike. I checked out some of those alt right channels after all the leftist reaction videos they still have about 30 dislikes per video and the comments are overwhelmingly supportive. Compare that to the queer people they are terrorizing- some don’t have comments for their videos available due to the harassment or deleted their accounts all together. I feel like the alt right channels will not be persuaded with arguments, they need to be attacked, flooded with criticism or shut down or they will never stop. I know dudes who watch these videos and I even have some racists/sexists/ homophobes in my own family. My brother recently got sucked in to the alt right part of you tube and he’s completely brainwashed it’s terrifying. These channels are really dangerous and they create dangerous people and this needs to stop. Free speech is great and all but they don’t care about it so why should we be nice to them. I don’t know how to go about this the best way. I just really want to do something about it. Please let me know if there are people who already trying to take care of the problem or if you have other ideas. Thanks a lot.
