Every time I hear something about him it's just worse and worse, but wow, you weren't kidding. This is some real "point of no return" stuff.

JT: Let's say the French see an influx of Islamic immigrants, who come in and say: "You don't give us enough handouts", like, "you're being racist", and they are rioting - what are the French supposed to think?

D: I don't know! I'm not French, I'm American, we were talking about America! Why are we going overseas again?

JT: But it's all intertwined! It's the same situation, they just speak a different language. I don't know why this is so hard for you.

D: Because it's not the same situation. Those countries are in dramatically different situations. You can't compare them.

JT: That's like you saying a man ate a sandwich in France and a man ate a sandwich in America, but these are not the same situation.

D: We're not talking about a basic thing like eating and consuming food! We're talking about the complex interactions and crossraods between culture and demographics and economy and geography. These are very high-level social issues that manifest themselves in far different ways across countries. We're not just talking about eating food.

JT: You speak pretty, my friend, but you haven't convinced me.

In a contest of "who can say 'echkk' funnier" between those two guys, yeah, Jonathan Tronathan would probably win, but for literally any other subject....

The JonTron Reddit turned on Jontron yesterday and it was fucking amazing.

You'd think Reddit of all places would be the one that would try to defend someone being a racist tool douche! But nope! The overwhelming attitude on the Reddit that exists solely to promote JonTron was "Man, Fuck JonTron."

Some highlights.

I only got into Game Grumps towards the tail end of the JonTron era and I already vastly preferred Danny's style, even without getting into their respective worth as human beings. I've watched a few of Jon's solo videos over the years and have enjoyed them, but now he's crossed the Mel Gibson Line for me, and there's just no coming back from that.

You forgot "SMASH GAME INTO INCORRECT CONSOLE OR RANDOM APPLIANCE"

I ain't arguing with you though, that's all true, and I still found it hilarious. But I ain't defending JT either

I considered it to be encapsulated well enough by "VIDEOGAME ENTER STAGE LEFT"

I won't lie, smashing an SNES cartridge in to a toaster did earn a chuckle out of me, and still does.

He's a funny, personable guy and it's a shame. It seems he got some bad education somewhere (the internet) and sadly, this backlash probably is going to send him further down that route rather than persuade him to re-evaluate.

Despite all the recent unpleasantness surrounding JonTron, I do wish him well. And then I wish he would fall down that well.

Based on the general response to this whole thing, he seems to have hurled himself into the well.

edit: know what, this was a weak joke that besmirched the good name of Dom Deluise. I'm removing it.

Yes, because Dom DeLuise, who most of his viewership under the age of 20 have probably never heard of, is a good counterexample.

He still has 3 million subscribers. I'm curious to see where this goes.

I've enjoyed Jontron before as a vidja gaem absurdist, but was always sort of aware that he's a guy who mistakes his fortune in one area of life as an expertise in all of them. I'm sad to see he's gone down this road, not least of all because I think he's going to learn all the wrong lessons from it, transforming a silly kid into a racist demagogue.

Ah well. There are more pressing matters than who will win the soul of Jon Jafari.

I'm just curious if/how any of the Grumps are going to try and clamber over themselves to try to defend Jon. My money is on Ross, as Ross is a shithead.

I figured Jon was an asshat in real life the moment Arin brought up the gingerbread house story on Game Grumps, and his various political outbursts over the years have only confirmed, so I'm not that shocked. I am baffled that apologizing for racist Iowa congressman, even though the offensive statement in question was directed at children of non white immigrants like Jon himself, was the hill he chose to die on.

I'm not surprised JonTron is an idiot, but up to now he's always been able to leverage that for comedy. It takes a special kind of stupid to get sucked into the attitudes of scumbags and start doubling down.
Doesn't he live in New York? Isn't that like an inoculation against this sort of thing?

Not to pop your coastal utopia bubble, but New Yorkers are some of the most virulently racist people America has.
