Honestly, I think people are just using Colin for VSPs at this point in time. Or, they hope they get noticed by senpai on the other forum and let in. Really disgusting behavior.

Colin is one of the most moderate Republicans out there. If there is anyone that can and should be debated or listened to for an alternate take it is him. Always like him on joe rogans podcast.

Completely agree. Being confronted with a variety of perspectives expands understanding, and facilitates intellectual growth. Trying to silence voices that you don't agree with has uncomfortable parallels to the goals of totalitarian regimes. Attacking an individual over an opinion at face value, rather than understanding voice behind the opinion, is one of the greatest loses in the information age. Unbelievable amounts of information, but an inability to humanly process it.

And? You're telling me you want to shutdown conversation, because you don't like it? I'm not defending Colin since I never found any of his content watchable, and neither with Kinda Funny. But you've gotta be kidding me when you actually want the mods to shut down threads because it's not what you wanna see.

Free speech isn't funny. It's a basic human right

Free speech isn't funny. It's a right we have.

Where did I say I wanted to 'shutdown' this conversation? Nobody is stopping you from talking about it.

I said that because our government, assuming you live in America, literally has nothing to do with this. Nobody is stopping you from talking about him. (And before you bring up era, I know about that and don't care. They just don't want to give him a platform, which is well within their right to do).

This pivot is used time and time again when someone sees another has a problem with and/or complains about something, which yes is funny to me.

I despised his CLS thing. It was cringeworthy and embarrassing. The guy went to the 6th best school in Boston, got a BA, and somehow got the idea that this makes him an eminent expert on history and politics. I doubt he ever read any primary sources in his life. The person who described his show as highschool book reports got it right.

Unfortunately this left such a bad taste in my mouth that I won't go back to listen to him talk about games. I probably have heard most of his opinions already anyways.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Also, leaving kinda funny was a money grab on his part. He went to the Rubin Report and saw a chance to make it big, so he made the tweet knowing fully well what would happen and used it as an excuse to leave, backstabbing his "friends", throwing them under the bus and putting their bussines in jeopardy

Honestly, people don't give a crap about history, especially those of the demographic he is known to.

Calling someone a fucking piece of shit because they have differing opinions negates any opinion you have. Also, your description of events is 100% fake news meant to prop up your irrational hate and idiotic narrative. You sir or ma'am are the disgusting and repugnant one.

Couldn't even just talk about this dude's new slinking back to games media because he overestimated both his intelligence and worth and assumed people who followed him for being an asshole about video games would likewise care about him being an asshole about history/politics. Has to become a "oh man glad we can talk about this on new GAF, glad old GAF isn't here, why don't they love me man?"

Fucking sad.

Talk about his new podcast or sad cry somewhere else.

his patreon seems to be dropping since his debut but i think its natural in the explosive way he debuted. and now its pretty close to stabalizing and still probably making ~$30k a month. which is among the highest for patreon. and more than Kinda Funny which has to split with multiple members.

hes doing the gaming stuff probably because i'm sure alot of his followers or patreons wanted it.

I define people by their actions, not their thoughts. In that regard, it's better that I know people's true colors - to be better prepared for their actions.

But that's just my take on life, I guess.

I'd call that "racially insensitive" more than racist if you want to label it anything. The way "racist" is thrown around today, I'm curious how many people have actually met true-blue staunch racists. People who have a deep and dark hatred of other races or have a belief in superiority of their own race. People who won't let their sons or daughters date people of a different color. Now you don't have to be that hardcore to be a racist, but saying something considered politically incorrect in today's society doesn't make one racist either.

You have to know someone personally to really say if they are racist, barring extreme circumstances. Thinking you can declare someone a racist based off a few tweets is completely ridiculous unless they flat out say "I'm racist, and I hate ______!" It's hard to tell what's in someone's heart based off a few tweets.

This accusatory and declarative crap doesn't do anyone any good. I mean, people literally hate this guy, and for what? For a few controversial opinions and some self-promoting business decisions. My goodness, it's not like he was marching down Charlottesville with swastikas all over him. Society is wound up way too tight today, everyone is pissed off about everything, it's crazy. If you don't like Colin, don't like Colin, but look at how angry people get over the guy.

At first many people wanted also to support his decision in the beginning and supported him because of the harassment and shit he received. These kind of Patreons always are high in the Beginning and find a middleground later. It is still at over 25k a month^^

Of course it is. When you find out someone's value system is something you abhor or find offensive then of course you should break off the friendship/relationship. I assume they had a decent talk...as I recall they did...and they decided to move away from each other. Gregg seems to have maintain an image among the game sites I frequent...such as he was recently on GB...Colin has gone into...in my view...the alt darkness. He has his audience.

Ok again where does this come from that they are not friends anymore? He NEVER said somehthing like that and even with this announcement They agreed that it is better on a professional level to split up they never said anything about the private level.

Besides. If you end your friendship because of something like that your friendship was not worth anything to begin with. Greg knows Colling and Collin is someone who has not changed much. So if you break up your friendship because of public opinions you are not worth it anyway.

Colin's new show was like being in middle school history class. I stopped watching KF completely when he left but before, maybe the month or two leading up to it, I was watching less and less as he became more and more ignorant.

I've tried getting back into KF but can't without Colin (the old Colin).

Colin is too much on his own, I'll check out the new show but unless there is a voice of reason, Colin comes off way to full of himself to watch solo.
