Where were you when Fantano went full reddit?
Can't believe he thinks this is appropriate satire. I've stopped watching his reviews now, I prefer my music critique to be done by adults rather than children.
>you will never be a 30-year old straight edge vegan MRA getting sincerely furious at hashtags on twitter dot com
>I'm willing to bet you're one of the people who have convinced themselves that his right wing beliefs aren't serious
i dont know what youre talking about
go watch more of your filthyfrank the even more reddit version please
this is why it it's so dumb. Of course stupid kids on twitter are going to make political statements they don't understand it's the first step in actually forming a real nuanced opinion for some people.
And plus, at least they're thinking for themselves and not just watching Sargonn of Akkid videos and taking it as holy truth because he has a stupid accent.
you used the word 'funny', but i rephrase my question if you want

because essentially reading posts off /pol/ to a liberal audience is witless and unfunny beyond the first time
his old stuff with his mother used to be funny though, he's just a horrendous standup
you'd swear fantano rakes in $5.5M per month the way he throws his weight around
a genuinely repulsive man
>because essentially reading posts off /pol/ to a liberal audience is witless and unfunny beyond the first time
this so fucking much
that being said as much as i hate the fucker i find the mother videos and the video he did on his father about him being a pc master were funny
Things like that don't define a person.
Also really annoying how dismissive he is of any who contends his meek satire. He just keeps on spamming this vague shit about 100 yrs of political theory. He's like those people who say "never gonna work bro, human nature won't allow it".
Fantano's politics are very reddit.
Reddit is anti left wing and anti progressive now. But not even in any sort of clever way, mainly just because they like memes and south park. It probably came from pol and v or something.
Cause I mean the whole point of Reddit is to pretend to be like this site. But without a basic sense of irony.
>irony of participating in a capitalism system i'm simultaneously fighting
how do you not participate in a capitalist system while living in a western country? do you go live in the woods and abstain from buying anything? how is that remotely feasible? do reddit faggots seriously think that this is an epic gotcha response to any criticism of their beloved ideology?
>i dont like those clothes, i think i could get better ones
>wow LMAO YOU DONT LIKE CLOTHES YET YOU WEAR THEM? WOW WHY DONT YOU GO NOT WEAR CLOTHES FAGGOT WOW HAHA LOOK AT THIS HYPOCRITE
this is your brain on neolib brainwashing
Reddit is sucking Bernie's dick endlessly and has done so for the past year, and he's the most left wing, progressive candidate in the election. What the fuck are you on about? But you got one thing right, no sense of irony.
The reason reddit adores Bernie Sanders is legal weed and "free" college.
They do not actually subscribe to Bernie Sanders's progressive politics and simultaneously manage to love Trump and the right-wing media and libertarian ideology, which can be seen here: https://www.reddit.com/r/circlebroke/comments/40fhqb/i_found_the_post_with_the_highest_density_of/
>i have no skills other than telling people im right on the internet
Am I autistic if I can't tell whether this was intentionally ironic or not?
Haha, the irony is indeed palpable, good sir!
You might've had a point if he was massively upvoted but he's sitting on -5. They adore Sander's left wing, anti-free trade, somewhat anti-capitalist bullshit. Reddit is a massive circlejerk against the rich now. They tended to follow right wing libertarian ideology up until Ron Paul retired, but they definitely don't any more.
Does /mu/ really fall for the 'socialism works on the large scale" meme?
He has this "extremist" thing going on right now for him, but his videos are crap by any "artistic standard" out there. The humor he does borderlines experimentalism.
So yeah, I don't think his right wings beliefs (or any beliefs) expressed on his youtube channel are "serious".
i kinda wish he could outline his actual views cos all this b8ing is a bit unfunny IMO
people keep trying to discuss it with him but just shoots everyone down with some kind of 'talk to the hand' routine, it's not really funny enough to be worthwhile and not making any points, just repeating some meme a banker made up 5 years ago
His point is that people posting all the #ResistCapitalism shit don't have a clue what they're talking about. As far as I can tell his view is that we should listen to what qualified economists say on economic matters, y'know base our views on evidence rather than what's trendy.
> lmao, anti- feminism feminism dichotomy :DDDDDD XDDDDDDDDDDD
It's so cringeworthy when he touches on subjects like this. Yeah we know it, there are feminists who are batshit insane. We got it the first few hundred times you said it while you rubbed your rageboner against the screen.
it's not. Fantano's childishly going "haha! look at these dweebs that are part of a capitalist society critiquing capitalist society... that thing there? that's a product of a capitalist society, nerd." and then some vague shit about economists, of which fantano likely knows nothing
>As far as I can tell his view is that we should listen to what qualified economists say on economic matters
Actually he just seems to think that whatever theory is written later in time is more valid, regardless of it's content.
Good point, I have no idea how he speak in favour of economists and support Sanders. Sanders is opposed to free trade while that's one of few things basically every economist agrees is good.
Saying we should totally overthrow an economic system isn't really critiquing it, it's just being a trendy edgelord.
I mean, as far as economics goes we gather more evidence over time, so as a general rule you're far better off going by theories written today than 100 years ago.
Just my interpretation of his twitter posts and video.
you dorks in this thread are only mad at him because /mu/ is a breeding ground for redditor libshits who still think socialism and communism weren't catastrophic disasters that should be left in history's dumpster.
>I mean, as far as economics goes we gather more evidence over time, so as a general rule you're far better off going by theories written today than 100 years ago.
It's still not really a valid argument.
Is that why they all worship Senator DUDE FREE SHIT LMAO? Reddit is a festering Sanders echo chamber.
regardless of whether or not there's a serious, valid, and thorough debunking of Das Kapital somewhere, it's certainly not in the Chicago school, which is the only alternative he cites (without elaboration of course, because he has absolutely no idea what he's talking about)
>he thinks Marx was wrong
Chicagonomics has been very influential and has some very valid critiques of Marxism but I agree Fantano is a hack who has literally no idea what he's talking about.
Hey, Anthony, I know you're reading this: stop sharing your unfounded, poorly researched, and frankly retarded ideas based around strawmen and deliberately misinterpreted arguments and stick to reviewing music. Or better, stop doing anything online entirely.
Try 'The 20th Century' by The Human Race
You're underage, you shouldn't be on this site
Americans are a combo of polarized and sensitive when it comes to politics. It's pretty much "you agree with me on pretty much everything or you're on the '''''''other side''''''''". It's pretty obvious, especially when a common response to any conservative or liberal opinion on here is >>>/reddit/ (/mu/ and /pol/ are the best examples of this)
The Communist Manifesto was a political platform designed for a very specific political situation (the 1848 revolutions). It misses out a lot of crucial concepts and theory and is more of a historical curiosity than an actual work. Capital is good but fucking massive and dense.
Das Kapital is hard as fuck to get through for some people. I've heard it recommended that you use a companion or something to get through it. Marx was never the best writer.
I mean there's also the manga adaption if you're into that.
>mfw Feudalism is on it's way back in
>mfw we're the fucking serfs
It's a complex subject and I see issues with how both sides are handling it. Narrowing down the issue to a hashtag like a trendy beacon so you can show off to your timeline how ~progressive you are, while not really being knowledgable about economics is silly, but so is Fantano's reaction (on both twitter and in this video/comments) - it's oversimplified and reductive and clear that he's not interested in having reasonable discourse with people who disagree with him.
