OK, show me the “ideas” he has, which are actually worthy of being challenged, instead of just being laughed off as basic wingnut ranting.
I’ll admit, my friends convinced me to join them in watching Tate’s 1 hour and 10 minutes livestream on Rumble after his Meta ban. Roughly in the middle of it, in what might have been an independent event that had nothing to do with the content of the stream itself (though I highly doubt that), our family dog pretty much puked his stomach out in my room, so I had to spend 20 minutes cleaning that up. It was nice to be spending my time productively for a moment, but unfortunately, I eventually had to come back to watching that stream.
Here’s some spoilered text in case of anyone here being morbidly curious and wanting to know what was in there…
spoilerRight at the beginning, Tristan (Andrew’s younger brother) did the standard, “Ladies and gentlemen,” greeting, only for his brother to immediately correct him with, “Only sexy ladies.”
Somehow, though, even after such a beginning, they actually managed to throw more insults at unattractive men than unattractive women. Basically, they went through the whole right-wing, lookist routine of saying that male feminists are only trying to get close to women to rape/harass them, Tristan dared people to search “rape suspect” and “child molestation suspect” in Google Images and try to find a guy like him (fit, traditionally good looking, rich and dressed in designer suits), Andrew said that women feel more confident with guys like them because “they have options”, and that they are scared by guys, in this case male feminists (semi-explicitly understood to be unattractive by default) who, unlike the Tates and other dudebros like them, don’t “have options”.
Andrew also said that, when (female) feminists call the police, which, according to him, they do at the slightest sign of a problem, they hope that they get a guy like him coming, rather than a male feminist one, and he called male feminists, “those nasty little gremlins nyanyanyanyanya.”
Now, just so I don’t seem too unfair to him to any random visitors of this site… If I had to give him one thing, just one, out of that entire hour+ stream he did where I kinda-sorta agreed with him, and this is only coming out because I’m trying extremely hard to spin his statement positively, and because I’m admittedly a bit biased when it comes to this sort of stuff… I can’t say I completely disagreed with him responding to the human trafficking allegations by asking how racist you’d have to be that a rich foreign guy coming to a country like Romania, a country with, globally-speaking, very low crime rates, automatically means to you that human trafficking is going on.
That obviously doesn’t automatically mean that those accusations are false at all, only a proper investigation can confirm or deny that, but it would be a very tall claim to make that Romania isn’t among the countries which, looking at their actual crimerates when compared to the rest of the world, are unfairly demonized in the popular consciousness as crime-ridden hellholes, along with having an, once again, very questionable when looking at the global data, reputation as a human trafficking hub.
