Granspreading.  >:(

Fight the geriarchy! Show the elderly how their privilege hurts the people around them. We can't keep letting them get away with this.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

That guy is kind of a dummy.
I still like him but some of the stuff he said in that thing seems pretty hard to defend. Might excuse it as someone talking about stuff he knows very little about.
But I don't know anything about anything either so whatever.

Go review Banjo Tooie or something, dude. God damn.

On the other hand, I hope he keeps going because I don't follow him for his political views. I follow him for his games content and the ****show that follows him around. Love you, Jon!

It's like when the Dixie Chicks got themselves in trouble.  Know your audience and stick to your area of expertise.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I like the idea of Jon not giving a crap and just doing whatever.

Screw the fakers. I'll take you flaws, Hitler, and all.

I'd tend to agree. But I hope the guy betters himself by studying up a bit before trying to debate again.
I like him too much to enjoy the schadenfreude.

It sounds like he's a little misinformed and a little overcorrecting. Great mix, leads to the best ****shows.

He's always kinda been like that though, kinda silly and bombastic. He used to word things terribly or make crude jokes that didn't quite land.
Works better in a comedy setting but much less in an actual discussion based in fact.
I know Jon is frustrated and really wants to strike back at all the nonsense but it seems misguided.

Yeah it probably is. But he'll probably land on his feet with a fanbase.

This is why people need to re-learn how to talk to each other again. Seems like a lot of people feel like they "can't talk" to "the other side" or whatever; then when they do talk, it all comes out at once in a big, inarticulate mess.

Then again, "the man" wants you to passionately and recklessly debate a pre-selected array of issues. Stick to those and ignore what's going on over here.

Nah, he did a stream with some other guy who is apparently known for being kinda disagreeable.
But because Jon's arguments were so terrible everyone was easily begrudgingly siding with the other guy, at least in terms of being able to argue points.
Jon was pretty self-assured with some of the nonsense he was saying. I only saw snippets because in truth I really don't care that much besides being disappointed that a comedy content creator decided to dive headlong into politics.

Welcome to [current year], where everything is political.

Did you know that for the three hours I listened to NPR today, literally (LITERALLY) every story they discussed across three different hour-long shows made every single topic about race. Everything! They do it every day. Everything! It's nuts. And it's not just them, but NPR is definitely one of the worst after FOX News. They're striving to look at every issue through the lens of race or gender or oppression and no ****ing wonder nobody is happy anymore and everyone is fighting.

Dunno which shows you were listening or what topics they were talking about but Rep. King gave them a big excuse to talk about race in at least one context.
