TAA being based

Other then economics I still don't know why people hate him here. He shits on idpol HARD.




My problem with him is he has no consistent philosophy aside from bland atheism and anti-feminism. His general political views are basically what feels good other than that at the time. He supported Israel for a while seemingly for the sole reason that he was friends with Howard Bloom.

Don't forget his history of shameless e-begging

There are a fair number of religious people on this board and they are a loud minority. They will deny it up, down, left, right, forwards, backwards, center, and every other direction in the however many dimensions there are. It's not just TJ, it's even the mention of atheism a lot of the time. Religion is close to a non-subject here because most lefties aren't religious, so it doesn't come up that often but if you mention irreligion on Holla Forums you are pretty much 100% guaranteed to get this kind of reply. It could just be diligent Holla Forumsyps, but it could also be genuine lefties who hold their religions dear to their heart or some other gay shit.

Personally I can see why people would dislike TJ. He can be an ass at times. He's much better than he used to be, probably because he dramatically increased his consumption of weed. It's been a while since I've seen a new video of his that was all that obnoxious.


Lmao people make fedora jokes because neo-atheists are cringey as fuck. I'm an atheist myself and despise those people. They act like no believing in god is some sort of sign of superior intellect when they're just as spooked as any theist when you prod at their beliefs in nations, morals, private property, etc.

Not even religious, but I'm not going to praise a cretin unjustly self confident about his own intelligence and knowledge just because his views might at some point coincide with mine. But I guess that thought is beyond grasp of many leftypolers seeing that not a small amount of this board sucked and still sucks Sargon's dick.

"Finally, I desired that, if there is to be talk about philosophy, there should be less trifling with the label “atheism” (which reminds one of children, assuring everyone who is ready to listen to them that they are not afraid of the bogy man), and that instead the content of philosophy should be brought to the people."

"The foundation of irreligious criticism is: Man makes religion, religion does not make man. Religion is, indeed, the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again. But man is no abstract being squatting outside the world. Man is the world of man – state, society. This state and this society produce religion, which is an inverted consciousness of the world, because they are an inverted world. Religion is the general theory of this world, its encyclopaedic compendium, its logic in popular form, its spiritual point d’honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, and its universal basis of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality. The struggle against religion is, therefore, indirectly the struggle against that world whose spiritual aroma is religion.
Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. The criticism of religion is, therefore, in embryo, the criticism of that vale of tears of which religion is the halo.
Criticism has plucked the imaginary flowers on the chain not in order that man shall continue to bear that chain without fantasy or consolation, but so that he shall throw off the chain and pluck the living flower. The criticism of religion disillusions man, so that he will think, act, and fashion his reality like a man who has discarded his illusions and regained his senses, so that he will move around himself as his own true Sun. Religion is only the illusory Sun which revolves around man as long as he does not revolve around himself.
It is, therefore, the task of history, once the other-world of truth has vanished, to establish the truth of this world. It is the immediate task of philosophy, which is in the service of history, to unmask self-estrangement in its unholy forms once the holy form of human self-estrangement has been unmasked. Thus, the criticism of Heaven turns into the criticism of Earth, the criticism of religion into the criticism of law, and the criticism of theology into the criticism of politics."

Because he's an idiot always making videos about the same things.
Because he made a crowd fund asking for 20k dollars to create a new website similar to youtube. He got the 20k dollars from his fans and no website was ever made. Instead he got married and went on a honey moon about the same time…
And even before he was a youtube celebrity, he was already an expert on e-begging.

sums up how I feel. neo-atheists are, indeed, cringey as fuck. it's no surprise they often end up shilling for Western imperialism because muh Islamic culture.

Liberals get the bullet too.

I have no idea what you mean by reversing the order of those phrases in my post, to be honest.


He actually did eventually make a site, it was called FreeSpeechVids. In reality, it was an extremely closed off circlejerk that frightened off all but the most hardcore autists. Oh, he also once said in a video that "communism isnt atheism because stalin wanted people to worship the state", or some variant of that, which was absolutely retarded.

Wow, it's like you want us to be focus on our identity and the other group identity instead of economic issues or class struggle.
Fuck off Holla Forumsyp, youtube celebs like this guy are cringey as fuck, say nothing new and their rethoric is high school level.

fedorafags will be sent to the killing fields

Oh, he said some mean things online? And?

All he does is say things online. If he's human garbage in his writing, what is he worth? There are plenty of shouty men out there who think the blacks whine too much, TJ contributes absolutely no intellectual substance whatsoever. I'm saying this as someone who watched his video for two years.

You dismiss his behavior, but you haven't offered anything else that would raise him from the position of some useless asshole who responds to criticism by virulently mocking a rape victim. Zizek is also a shitty person, but he's written many useful things that have informed my world view. What has TJ contributed?

Why should we care about shitting on idpol? We're leftists you retard, economics is always primary. Get your faggoty reactionary ass out of here and take your banana with you.

Yeah, we should deplatform him for hatespeech, amirite? Seriously though, almost all of us are guilty of saying horrible shit online - you're on a chan ffs. That screenshot completely leaves out context. He was being flamed by reddit assholes to incite that response.

Uh, ok…

No one's saying he's some deeply intellectual person. But he does contribute some. He constantly says commie things but doesn't even realize he's doing it & that thankfully rubs off on his young & impressionable audience.

See above. What criticism was being lodged at him when he did that? And seriously
Get the stick out of your ass, Jesus. You know damn well the context of that mocking comment.

How so? By saying things that happen to offend some people?

I mostly watch his channel(DP mainly) for laughs, btw. I don't look at him as some inspiring, intellectual character. But he's close to being commie & that's a good thing that should be recognized, especially with his reach.


Stop making eceleb threads

Hey, I didn't create it. But I do agree that there's too many lately. Every once in a while is fine, though.

Lmao how deluded do you have to be to belive this? There's a difference between being an atheist and being a cringey edge-lord too stupid to understand high-school level philosophy.

If you're an atheist as I am, you should want the people representing your position in public to be making arguments that wouldn't fit into a Carlin sketch.

Can you name even one good thing that would disappear if religion was eradicated from existence that secular philosophy wouldn't be able to replace?

Nothing, which is why you should want your secular philosophers making good, well-reasoned arguments

How did you misread this post that badly?

Fear of consequences (hell/punishment etc.) as self-enforcing element for the masses.

inb4 "state can do that", because you asked about philosophy just saiyan

this is exactly why everyone hates nu-atheists

He can say whatever horrible shit online if he wants, but that doesn't make it worth anything. You say it's no big deal if he says pointlessly horrid things online for kicks, but then you justify it because people were being mean to him at the time?

He's approaching socdem at best. What commie things are you referring to? He's seriously into the "between socialism and capitalism" nonsense. All he does is shout at other people online for laughs, very rarely making a dedicated video to a topic like overpopulation and mucking it up completely. It might be entertaining if you agree with him, but it's intellectually useless, nothing he says is informed by theory or data.

God, you're hilarious.

Cool, then stop being so butthurt over it.

You're just wasting time at this point.

He shits on the alt-right & idpol. Good to have him on YT within the "anti-SJW" crowd making those points.

Well that's just not true. Every once in a while he'll nail it regarding news(mainly on DP), capitalism bullshit & Trump's retarded antics.

Glad you think so. You still get the gulag though, because you're a cunt. Still not addressing why you think Zizek is a shitty person. Interested in why you think that.

i don't thing i ever disagreed with whatever he said.

and for those of you who think idpol is a secondary problem, it isn't.

its the only thing stopping people from class awareness. and achieving our goal.

idpol is subversion and it must be destroyed if we want to move forward

I want the people representing atheism in public to be doing it in a way that will be convincing to the average person. The people on the right are not very important scientists. Bill Nye isn't even a scientist. Those guys are popularizers. Their job is to siphon people away from religious fundamentalism. If you pulled your head out of your ass to take a breath maybe you'd notice how fucking backward so many westerners (esp. americans) are. They've been educated in such a way that the comments on the left of that pic would be all but meaningless to them. I don't even really like Dawkins, Krauss, Nye, or Tyson, but you are grossly misreading what they do. You are not their audience.
