Editor’s Note: Media Matters has a new article up by Alex Kaplan complaining that Nick’s America First show hasn’t been banned.
Nick Fuentes is mad at us.
I think he was triggered by these tweets.
Here is the ADL’s hit list of YouTube channels it wants censored https://t.co/VsLDmrrQYp— EMPEROR ‘KINGFISH’ WHITEPILL (@CptBlackPill) August 26, 2019
America First with Nick Fuentes is listed as white supremacy— EMPEROR ‘KINGFISH’ WHITEPILL (@CptBlackPill) August 26, 2019
It’s okay, kid— EMPEROR ‘KINGFISH’ WHITEPILL (@CptBlackPill) August 27, 2019
We all make mistakes. He fooled me too. Conservatives fool most people most of the time, but they can’t fool all of us blackpilled wignats ? pic.twitter.com/gxINXvJqc3
Matt Parrott had a much harsher take:

Preserving YouTube as an open platform is more important than ever. My latest letter to creators is all about how YouTube balances openness with its responsibility to protect the community: https://t.co/okwYcyNOPG— Susan Wojcicki (@SusanWojcicki) August 27, 2019
Did you get my letter about Nick?— Matt ? Parrott (@MatthewParrott) August 27, 2019
I sent it priority mail. I know somebody signed for it. I need you guys to act right away. It’s very urgent.
I was clearly joking about Nick.— Matt ? Parrott (@MatthewParrott) August 28, 2019
I have neither called YouTube nor sent them a complaint by certified mail. I have not interfered with him or his show in absolutely any way.
Kid needs to learn to take bantz.
Parrott was just sharing gallows humor though.
In all seriousness though, I don’t want Nick Fuentes to get banned from YouTube and lose his platform. I don’t even wish that upon Andrew Anglin. I was actually expressing sympathy for Nick in light of the banning of James Allsup, Patrick Casey and Martin Sellner. Team Optics was wiped out on YouTube by the ADL in a single day and Nick is the last man standing and next logical target on the list. Allsup was even banned from Instagram where he posted nothing but baby pics.
My difference of opinion with Nick Fuentes was never personal. Nick was a Trump cheerleader and apologist for years. I was a “blackpilled wignat” who was skeptical of him. Nick ditched the Alt-Right to rebrand as an American Nationalist. As a Southern Nationalist, I have always been skeptical of American Nationalism due to its history, its association with Blompf who I have been skeptical of since he won 2016 election and due to racial demographics which make it increasingly implausible. Nick was Mr. Optics. While I granted that optics were important, I thought the distinction was overwought because our enemies aren’t reacting to our image. They see us as immoral and as their political enemies.
My take on Nick Fuentes has always been that he is young and politically inexperienced. He was in middle school when the Alt-Right began. I’m old enough to be his father. He isn’t old enough to remember all the times we have been conned and screwed over by conservatives and Republicans. He wanted to believe in Blompf while those of us who were older were always more skeptical of him. He wanted to believe that mere optics was the problem and that we could all rebrand and infiltrate mainstream conservatism and the GOP. It was only a few years ago that White Nationalists could attend CPAC. Those of us who are older know that this debate is as old as White Nationalism. Being frustrated with women is also part of life when you are a young man though some never reach maturity. Ultimately, I think Nick lacks a memory of the past and is just a bratty kid who wanted to believe in something.
White nationalist Nick Fuentes is stuck in the lobby at CPAC, apparently because he’s banned from the actual conference. Fuentes says he’s “just kind of hanging out.” pic.twitter.com/EkeJNWnMYA— Will Sommer (@willsommer) February 28, 2019
After the press conference, he and Laura exchanged hugs with @NickJFuentes who said he “isn’t a neo-Nazi” because “I love the Jewish people!” as he did so.— Ford Fischer (@FordFischer) February 28, 2019
I got to the press conference a bit after it started but will have the full vid of what I got up ASAP. pic.twitter.com/MSY81bB95K
I’m pleased to see he is moving on from Trump and American Nationalism. I believe Nick even recently admitted that the WN 1.0s who ranted about ZOG weren’t wrong. There is a Jewish conspiracy and we are all dissidents and will assuredly be deplatformed, red flagged and sent to the gulag as soon as it becomes feasible. In the long run, these debates over whether a Democrat or a Republican is sending us to the gulag or who was blackpilled or has the best optics will look quite ridiculous.
ZOG IS REAL DAD. THEY BANNED MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL. I’VE BEEN BLACKLISTED
