"The PewDiePie Pipeline": video from a self-characterized leftist source does make a case for taking "stochastic terrorism" seriously as an insidious online threat
I’m linking to the one hour film “The PewDiePie Pipeline” by “NonCompete”, with subtitle “How edgy humor leads to violence”.
The video, at about 18:00, defines “stochastic terrorism”, a term originating in the Left (main blog, April 1). He also quotes Thomas Ridgewell as to how gamers and entertainers (like PewDiePie) should take responsibility for younger or more impressionable viewers.
The second video that follows does not recommend content censorship, but does talk about “organizing” and “action” – yet here most of the action is counter-speech.
The first video contains footage from the Covington Kids incident in January and appears to misrepresent the facts. We know from other sources and other video (and expressed in some litigation) that the Covington high school students did NOT intend to harass Nathan Phillips.
