Far-Right Troll Matt Walsh Denounces Anime as ‘Satanic,’ Though He Doesn’t Know Why
Podcaster from the right and self-describing”theocratic fascism“Matt Walsh once again drew attention by making intentionally outrageous comments, this time claiming that the anime is “satanic” while acknowledging that he has no basis for that claim.
While quickly rise in rank is one of the most influential anti-transgender voices on the rightWalsh has also used his perch at Ben Shapiro’s conservative outlet The Daily Wire to trollishly lament anything that infuriates the right-wing media’s forever culture wars.
Whether the statement has no scientific basis to a fictional black mermaid, accusing Lizzo of being “evilly obese” of “insulting American history“By playing an old flute or saying the racist Great Alternative theory is”just a factWalsh’s frequent irritability and bigotry remains a feature of his commentary.
In a clip flagged first by Jason Campbell of Media Matters, Walsh was asked by a viewer for his thoughts on the anime. And also he finished in the past with things he despised, Walsh immediately associated it with Satan.
“It’s really popular with teenagers and young adults. I think they are all satanic,” he stated before noting that he had no evidence to back up that claim.
“I have no argument for that. I have no reason to explain why it is satanic,” Walsh added. “It seems so to me. All anime seems weird to me – like eerie, creepy. “
The Daily Wire provocateur and seemingly self-appointed expert ended up claiming that adults should never watch cartoons or animated series.
“In general, I don’t think adults should – whether it’s anime or any other kind of cartoon, except rarely – really shouldn’t be watching anime in general, I would say,” I said.
Walsh seems to have a lot of thought about what adults and children should or shouldn’t do with their time. Previously he called youth “modern plague” and suggests that young girls as young as 16 should get married and get pregnant. “At about 16, you’re an adult and you can make decisions — you’re 16. I don’t care what people say,” Walsh said during his tenure as a radio station. morning radio.
After a clip of his statement about satanic anime went viral on social media, Walsh took to Twitter to scold that Media Matters always “highlights my most important opinion” before adding a word “defending” his remarks.
“I’m getting hot because I said anime is satanic,” he tweeted. Studies show: “I just wanted to make it clear that yes, it literally leads to demonization in 87% of cases.”
Of course Walsh doesn’t really believe that anime leads to demonic possession or that such research exists, but it’s another example of him rising up the ranks of the right-wing media by how to make flashy, often obnoxious, but always self-righteous comments before declaring to have been trolling people who lie throughout.
