Clapter is what you see at a woke comedy club. Nobody is laughing, but people clap when the comedian says orange man.
This is reason why Hannah Gadsby is a thing. She's not funny, but because a fat gay autistic woman gets up on stage and says "I'm a fat gay autistic woman!" instead of making actual jokes, all the NPCS clap like trained seals.

Hmm I wonder if this video will be a lot of passive aggressive whinging that some people just want to be told about the contents of a game instead of opinions on the video game industry as a whole.

Just when I thought my hate boner for Jim had calmed down... (are there "5 Stages" for newfag detractors? lol)

My life choices of following this guy in the past flashed before my eyes as I skimmed through this video. 100% unwatchable trash filled to the brim with strawmen (literally talking to "the bad people" like they're drooling babies at one point. Didn't think he could do worse than the Duke).

At least I got a chuckle out of him doubling down on the whole "Centrism means you're complacent" angle. What does Jim expect mere consumers to do about the systemic problems present in a company we have no power over (besides voting with our wallets)?


Thoughts I have with this unfun topic include:
"Are 'family' bathrooms really that rare?"
"Why are there so many Karens when it comes to pissing in a bowl sitting in a privacy box?"
"Why do discussions of this topic act like only penis-clad freaks commit bathroom assaults?"
"What about the mothers who drag their young sons into waymon bathrooms OMG THE INDOCTRINATION!11!!"
"Look at Jim getting his brownie points!"

I watched some of his videos 4 years ago,I went just now to his channel,clicked on a video and the first thing he says is "2020 has not been good,we have a pandemic,increasing racism and police brutality..." I stopped the video and closed it. No one gives a fuck about your political takes,all he does is mention politics now,specially on twitter. Now I see that he made a video where he mocks this,fuck this retard,did this happen after 2016? Trump makes all the leftists shit their pants and REEEE so I imagine that after he got elected he started adding politics to everything because it wasn't like this 4 years ago.

EDIT: I wanted to add something,its a little theory I have on why content creators lean so much to the left on the internet. I'm not saying Jim is lying about being a leftist but haven't you noticed that people that were right wing or at least centrist went full leftist? I think that is because they know it makes more money,think about it,who are he people that use the internet way too much? People that live in a metropolis. What are the politics of the people that live in a metropolis? overwhelmingly leftist with a special emphasis on feminist shit,troon shit and gay shit,etc.

Think about it,people from smaller states are not like that,not even people that live in the capital of that state or at least nowhere near the same degree when it comes to politics and how much they use the internet(they use the internet less and are more right wing),also you need to add that people that have these retarded leftist gender identity and racial politics are almost always young,I remember watching a poll that show that old black people in the US(over 65)vote almost 50/50 when it comes to republican vs democrat but if you look at blacks aged 18-30 it was almost 90% vote democrat.Another example of this gender,sexuality stuff being more prevalent in big cities(where they use the internet more) is a study that was on my Gmail about gay marriage here in Argentina,in the independent territory that is the 10 kilometers right in the center of Buenos Aires called Capital Federal you have like 40 to 70 more gay marriage than in small states where the capital of those states is a 5 kilometers circle at most and barely has more than 100k people living in them.

As I said I'm not saying he is not being honest about his politics but if you look at his patreon its way up to what it used to be,for all the reasons I gave above I think that content creators on the internet turn leftist or include leftist shit in their content,people that use youtube or twitch are all young people,the majority of them live in big cities and people who are young and live in a metropolis are overwhelmingly leftists into gender and racial shit.

Hbomberguy used to be a troll and then he started doing anti-anti-sjw videos,destiny was a libertarian and now is all for this shit(and is super popular),even people like Sargon of Akkad might not be into identity politics but he is still a leftist when it comes to economics,I think that in most cases they know this at least at a subconscious level. Also right wingers are muuuch less popular than leftists if you compare the numbers,almost everyone that is popular is a:
A- centrist that likes capitalism done like sweden and is not into identity politics
B- A leftist that likes capitalism and is into identity politics
C- A leftist into socialism and identity politics

I guess this is because right wing people are not young or on the internet that much. If you think I'm wrong let me know.

As far as I see it, its less about age or location, and more about bans. Anything too far right tends to get banned in short order, so the majority of the public right wing stuff is more from center-right elements, folks that toe the line but don't really roll hard into it. Its not social media exclusive either, look at the extreme right with the Stormfront forum getting pulled by their hosting providers at one point, while extreme left stuff is basically fine.

As for content creators transitioning from right to left, peoples opinions can change, but I'd imagine at least some of its just grifting for that sweet sweet ad revenue. Folks gotta pay bills, and if you don't actually really care much, you can just take up a popular mantle, pretend its what your about, and profit.

It literally just comes down to twitter. These people are terrified of the response on twitter. That's the whole of it.

fuck this retard,did this happen after 2016?
Yes, but not because of Trump (though that didn't help), but because of GamerGate.

Jim went all in the clique and anti-gamergate, and his side lost. Now he has no bridges left and has to pander to a lefty audience that hates games and gamers.
I think that is because they know it makes more money
It doesn't though. They are loudest on the internet, but when it comes to spending the money they disappear. This is why "Get Woke, Go Broke" is a saying.

As Dredd says, "Get woke, go broke" is the reality, so it's not really about money. I'd say it's a combination of two things:

1. Peer Pressure. Everyone else on the internet is a lefty and as the years have gone by, conforming to that ideal has been more and more important, unless you want to risk getting cancelled. And they know that they are in danger because they've seen it happen to others and don't want it to happen to them. So the right-wings, like the Vichy French or closeted gay republicans, go hard on the other targets in a desperate attempt to divert attention away from themselves.

2. Ego. These people were the kids who grew up on cartoons where they identified with the courageous heroes, when in reality they were worthless, weak, fat cowards. But by tweeting for "the right side of history" they can pretend they are being heroic. This feeds their need to be better than everyone else, and when they receive positive comments for this shit, they feel validated for their shitty life choices.

If these people actually wanted to make a difference, they'd be promotion charities, or they'd shut the fuck up and retweet actual black people when they talk about #BLM. But they never will, because that would require them to give up the spotlight for a second.

I agree with you on money being the simplest answer for the wave of blind Leftie™ talking heads. But I also think it comes down to a combination of bans and algorithm burial.

Obviously, I can only give anecdotal evidence. But I do get the sense that on the biggest social media sites, the tiniest right-leaning thoughts are squashed far more often than toxic but “correct” left-leaning ones. Through sheer process of elimination, the Left will appear like the hip and cool thing everyone’s into, and hide the more complicated reality. As a bonus, people can then grift the story that small competitors like BitChute are raising Nazis... when it's because there's literally nowhere else for the "bad" people to vent their thoughts.

As for the algorithm bots, I’ve noticed that they obsess over the tiniest change you make in viewing preferences. When I told Youtube to stop recommending Sarg’n or Quarter Pounder videos because they’re shit, the robots assumed “Ah, so absolutely no Right-leaning politics, got it!”

Then again, even people I follow will be treated as lower priority for my recommended feed, and admitting I found a CURRENT YYYEAR Hbomb video entertaining caused the bots to think I wanted to watch ContraPoints or Lindsay Ellis (even thought I said no three times before). For all I know, I'm shitting out conspiracy theories over here.


In other BREAKING NEWS, it looks like DSP got a PS5 and Jim didn- wait hold on... 16 minutes later I'm being told that someone in fact is donating one to him. We've been graced with yet another "Capitalism amirite?!" video with no substance. Oh, that classic Jim!

(Final side tangent: credit to Jim for finding a shade of pink lipstick that matches his tie. It's better than the magenta one... but still unflattering. I'm not even going on this tangent because I think lipstick is only for waymon... it's just that each individual person has colors that look really fucking bad on them. Life's a bitch, etc.)

I get that it's shitty that Sony isn't able to get everyone a PS5, but this isn't "MuH cApItAlIsM" fucking people over, this is a pandemic making everything much harder, more expensive, and slower.

TLDW: Capitalism is bad because I couldn't get a consumer product the day it released! (He needs a new PS5 to talk about why capitalism is bad every week apparently) He complains about that for 9 minutes then shows off his toy collection and plays with them. He talks about the Xbox abit and how it's not hard to get and then shows another big Alien toy that was probably $100+ (I don't play with toys so not sure on the prices). Then begins a terrible skit where he cries on the floor on his toys while sad music plays. He then goes into a ramble about why Microsoft, PS5 and Walmart doesn't care whether it's "legit" customers or bots buy all the systems first. He then again complains that you have to get up early, pre-order and actually try to get a console system in the first 2 weeks (products shouldn't have scarcity for meeeee). He says again that capitalism is the cause of every problem that exists. He then acts like an elitist because he now has a PS5 and the viewer doesn't, but just kidding!

I think you are all overthinking it. Sterling and others brand of leftism is almost entirely based on stupidity. Those people lived their entire childhood under the mindset of "right wing evil", because in the 90's-00's the media pushed hard the narrative about evil authoratarian right wing bible thumpers (while ignoring people on the left who also were censor happy). Now 20-30 years later they haven't budged from their previous political position despite the massive changes in the political space. The only thing important is that they'll still be considered hard left.
If tomorrow the people on the extreme left decide to burn every Jew in an oven, Jim Sterling will immediately proceed to make a list of how Jews are responsible for everything bad in gaming, especially in Konami.

The censor happy left back in that day were a laughing stock, while the right had the ear of the media, at least up to a point.

Danny o'dwyer did a video back in 2015 about how he used to debunk the right on talk radio, but these days he's on the receiving end of that ire. He would later go on to be a laughing stock himself when he said that anime arse causes rape.

It's an interesting time capsule for this stuff because it's someone who was on both sides of the fence, captured at the point he was leaping over it.

I'm reminds how people complained about how Nintendo was using "artificially scarcity" for the Switch (or indeed any other successful console they've made). Like come on, if you look at the numbers they're making it's clearly not, when you bump up production to over 10 million units a year you're clearly not trying to make it scarce. The actual "problem" is that stores aren't going to order shit tons of units on a wing and a prayer just hoping they'll sell, they'd go bankrupt if they did that with everything. At least initially they're only going to order what they're dead certain they can sell, and you have to go off what they order to determine how fast you should make them. Sometimes if demand is vastly underestimated your production lines aren't gonna be able to handle it even at max compacity. Sure it sucks for the consumer short term, but eventually it will catch up even if it takes a while, and it sure as shit beats making excess stock that doesn't sell and having to shut down your production line, and eventually your company if you keep repeating it.

Also I have to ask if getting a PS5's really that hard, the Switch for example was far from impossible to get, it just takes some patience. I remember checking sites from time to time out of curiosity, and Switch's while they weren't available 24/7 also weren't NES Classic or amiibo levels of scarcity. When they were available they seemed to be around for about half a day, perhaps more. If you really wanted one and checking fairly regular you'd almost certainly be able to grab one. I imagine the PS5's gonna be similar, wait a week or two and start checking Amazon or GameStop once or twice a day to see if they have new stock and I'm sure you'd be able to buy one relatively quickly, seems easy enough for a normal person.

I notice that the people that tout the "never buy day one" crap the most tend to be the ones that want to play them day one the most for some reason.

it also makes sense when you realize that the ones who are being marketed to have been on record claiming that they don’t play video games. they only like the “idea” of it, as proven by this:


Jim Sterling is the opposite version, but he‘s the type to be on record to invent or make up problems that the anti-political correctness group have to come up with just to find problems with video games that don’t fit his own vision.

Except for maybe Life Is Strange and The Last of Us 2.
