In before anyone says he is wearing an iron cross on his shirt. Twitter found the shirt he was wearing and it turns out it’a the cross from the country Georgia and it has something written in Georgian script on it.

sure. he's an antisemite. but sure.

its not technically an iron cross. but he's a swedish white dude who's done a lot of edgy antisemitic jokes and our irony poisoned culture has made him a figure of the altright and people who shoot up synagogues.

did he HAVE to wear something that resembles an iron cross? is he georgian? or is it possible that its the plausible deniability for respectability while his fans are going lol he's trolling the jews lol fuck them

its like why the altright do the okay sign - bc sure we can't prove his intentions but its enough of a signal to those in the know and those who are against that bigotry sound like lunatics for pointing it out

he's done shit like this with blatant racist/anti semitic photos/icons and used plausible deniability to get away with it. if you care enough to be the first comment defending him then you can care enough to meet ms google

I have seen so many people defending him. His followers would literally take a bullet for him. It’s so disgusting that he is the most subscribed to youtuber. It also says a hell of a lot about our world.
