“I'm pretty open about my former love of strip clubs and debauchery, and I spend hours looking at it on Instagram.” [influencer] Brittany Renner etc. It was an eye-opener for me to see how much sex is promoted on the internet in subtle and not-so-subtle ways.

“I'm going to complain about it. They can make up millions of algorithms and pay aggregators all over the world to write articles slandering me. I will. No. Grooming. It just won't stop. Do you think I'm the only one who gets hit with overly sexualized ads from time to time?

“If all I do is search for the wrong thing, click on the wrong link, or criticize a favored group. I have made an enemy of the Alphabet Mafia that controls ESPN and Disney. A powerful enemy. I wasn't lying when I said my sins won't silence me from speaking the truth. I always talk about my sins. There's no good reason to watch ads for the Super Bowl and the halftime entertainment is all about holding up gang signs, grabbing crotches, and rapping about drugs, b–s, hs, and n–s murders. It's no different than being a bunch of bastards. There's nothing to justify it.”

“When ESPN kicked me out of there, they were sending a signal that 'men with the ball are not welcome.' He said this on the podcast Fearless. “We don't want real men, we want feminized men.” I was the intellectual backbone of masculine men at ESPN, and that's what I represented. ”
