Notice that Ezra Levant has more than one million followers on youtube. I also urge your readers to check the very popular conservative political commentator/comedian Steven Crowder who has 2.5 million followers on youtube. They are seen by the dying MSM as the real enemy. They are siphoning business, and therefore revenue, away. It is as simple as that.

So, MSM and the regressive Left (mostly in Academia and the old media dying media be it news print or cable TV) call them names the likes of alt-right and Neo-Nazi. However, if we pose the question: What is really alt-right and what is a Neo-Nazi? You will never get an answer And if we ask them: Why do you not call them Neo-communists (after all communists murdered millions of human being)? Their lame answer would be: But capitalism killed millions of human beings and the Gulags were not unlike Hilton resorts! Total insanity.

The point is the old media is dying and this is their last fight. Just go and enjoy the cruise

One final point: The wonderful Gad Saad when attacked by the regressive left, he plays their game and the "But, I'm a fat brown Arab Jew!" He is playing their game of identity politics and victim-hood and it seems to work very well. It shuts them up!

BTW: How many of your readers still read print newspapers, or he/she still subscribe to TV cable, or he/she is still watching the real drivel on CNN, CNBC or PPS? Not many. Most of us would rather watch a smart stimulating discussion by the likes of Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson and Joe Rogan that can go on for 2-3 hours. The truth is MSM is dying and it will not be missed.
