PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

A video maker from YouTube have opened his own instance.

videos . lukesmith . xyz

He have announced the creation of this instance because "so many of [his] favorites channels now have [been banned]" while showing one banned for hate speech.
After a quick search this channel was the one of the "American Renaissance" magazine, a white supremacist online publication.

While his YouTube channel seems to host mostly tech/linux related content he seems to use a lot of alt-right's illustrations on the thumbnails. I haven't watched any others videos than the one where he's talking about PeerTube so I don't know about the content.

He also said that he have put a lot of his YouTube videos in "private" recently to avoid been banned.

He said in this video that he will post PeerTube's exclusive videos that he can't post on YouTube because they would be banned.

He also said that he wants to fully use federation to not be isolated on his instance, I suggest that we don't allow him that !

I don’t know the position of @Liberapay about that sort of thing but he have an account there.

@PeerTube_Isolation dear god, i remember back when i used to watch him 3 years ago. at some point i got an alt-right vibe and fucked off

guess i was right on the money

re: PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@enbyss it's that alt-right vibe in the thumbnails that makes me look closer to what he is.

I think that he try to keep it discrete to have a wider audience..

re: PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@PeerTube_Isolation back in the day he definitely kept it discrete. unfortunately I watched him if only to find out more about Linux and some things that I could do. Turns out I learned nothing useful from him except to learn LaTeX as soon as possible, which was a life saver.

The altright vibe came from the elitism. For some reason, linux elitism (such as insulting people who use "vanilla" distros, not being comfortable with the CLI, etc., not people who prefer linux) correlates highly with alt-right vibes.

re: PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@enbyss @PeerTube_Isolation Interesting. I can imagine how a sense of #elitism in software could correlate with opposition to #egalitarian #politics, which seems to be a characteristic of the alt-right. OTOH, I can't think of any free software developers with alt-right inclinations; most seem non-political, some seem leftist, a few seem #libertarian.

Can you think of others with alt-right tendencies?

@PeerTube_Isolation he's a known far right chud, I watched one of his tech tutorials once and immediately got a recommended video of him talking about how great Trump is

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@PeerTube_Isolation Love that he made a video titled "Keep politics out of technology" while putting alt-right associated memes in almost every thumbnail. Speaks volumes.

@crash @PeerTube_Isolation ya its a bit stupid

Idk man have a look around at that website.

idk this is kinda cringy.

Also "censor"? You know only the state can censor, right?

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@pinkprius @PeerTube_Isolation I used censor because it fit best what I felt was happening.

What I think, seeing the Amren site and stuff is:

Luke's tech stuff is good. It's a very narrow viewpoint, but there is something to learn.

Cringy meme thumbnails? Oh the humanity. What does it say about him? He likes memes.

I love his tech stuff. Eliminate everything apart from linguistics and tech and you're golden.

@m4iler @pinkprius @PeerTube_Isolation I’ve learned that he dog-whistles to the alt-right with chan imagery, and vomits up trash for his blog.. *Tosses in bin*

@andreas @pinkprius @PeerTube_Isolation I guess I'll have to take your word for it, since I'm not in the US and we don't have an alt-right. We have a hard right (literal workers' party) and literal communist.

Both of these are filled with super-authoritarian idiots who only want their party to rule.

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@PeerTube_Isolation my first and almost only experience of peertube was sewer of fash

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention / channer vocab / ablism 

@PeerTube_Isolation "Moderation information

Code of conduct

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@PeerTube_Isolation He realeased a video regarding RMS' comments about Epstein scandal.
He stated the video by saying "jewish communist and sex pervet". He also defends him. Explaining that everybody in Hollywood, university teachers and journalist hold the same views as RMS regarding 'consenting sex between minors and adults'. 6min20
Also mentions "red pill".

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@PeerTube_Isolation
Also says that his "goal" of human sexuality is "not having fun" witch is likely implicit homophobia. Also, speaks of a "slippery slope" witch at the top (where he is) "good wholesome chrisitan people, no sex before mariage, no degeneracy, no porn". 1min10

Bonus: ableist use of "autistic".

"STOP asking me about Richard Stallman!"

re: PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@Niquarl yeah he's definitely a fash

re: PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@PeerTube_Isolation @Niquarl therefore I think it is the time to update the "type" on the cryptpad, which is currently: "Owner seems close to the alt-right" (remove "seems")

re: PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@diorama @Niquarl You are right. I've just updated it.
