Far-right streamer lashes out at Louis Theroux

Far-right streamer lashes out at Louis Theroux

A far-right streamer went live on air and ranted furiously about Louis Theroux for being “anti-white” after a journalist asked if he ever doubted his actions.

Florida-based alt-right media personality Tim Gionetm uses the alias Baked Alaska to host a live broadcast in which he pranks passers-by by playing racist or offensive music, with his audience funding him through donations.

Gionet, who broadcast live footage of himself among other Donald Trump supporters at the Capitol during last year’s riots, appeared on the journalist’s latest BBC2 series, Forbidden America, which aired last night.

After receiving a comment calling people of color and homosexuals “subhuman,” he told Ter, 51, that while he disagrees with all of his viewers’ opinions, he enjoys hearing “uncensored” opinions.

Later, when Theroux questioned him about the consequences of his actions, the journalist launched into a furious tirade, calling the journalist an “anti-Christian, lying piece of shit.”

Theroux’s latest series focuses on extremist speech in the US, with the first episode examining inflammatory figures on the American far right.

He met Gionet in Tampa, Florida, where he demonstrated what a standard live stream looks like, beginning the broadcast by saying, “Say hi to my right-wing nutters, we’re having some fun tonight.”

Despite being banned from YouTube, the vlogger explained that he is “constantly creating new channels” and earning money by filming himself, provoking passers-by.

Audiences encourage him to play racist or provocative music through a speaker, and he is seen playing Herms Nihl’s Erika, a 1930s German marching song.

The social media personality denied knowing if the music had any Nazi overtones, instead describing it as “just a good German song”.

However, he acknowledged that his viewers enjoy offensive and racist material, saying, “This is comedy. It’s sharp humor, they play everything they can to make us feel uncomfortable.”

The journalist questioned Gionet about his audience, calling them “an online community of far-right trolls”, insisting that much of what he saw was highly racist content.

But not everyone is right? Louis questioned him, assuming that most of his viewers were.

When the vlogger began defending his audience, arguing that not every viewer is far-right, he received a comment from a viewer calling non-whites and homosexuals “subhuman.”

“The fact that it’s so awful does it ever make you think you’re doing something wrong?” Teru asked.

As the night wore on, the streamer continued to provoke passers-by and receive racist messages from viewers, soon turning his attention to Louis.  Pictured is an offensive comment made by Teru during a live broadcast.

Gionette replied, “Not exactly. We live in a world where you don’t hear any of that language. All this is heavily censored, all this is so taboo and so forbidden that some things I don’t like. But for the most part, it’s refreshing.”

He told his audience that he was “manipulated” by the journalist, claiming that he wanted to talk about the live broadcasts, but what he really wanted was to address the issue of race.

The journalist then decided to challenge Gionet about his beliefs, citing a 2019 video in which he expressed concern about contributing to toxic far-right internet culture.

“I thought you were interested in live broadcasts; you’re just interested in your crappy little plans,” Gionette said in response.

“You’re like, ‘Oh, it’s not a hit, I want to know about streaming.’ You don’t care about streaming. You immediately tried to label me a white nationalist and all that stupid shit, anyone can see through your fucking gay agenda.

“You’re a piece of shit, dude. I gave you a chance. You are anti-Christian, you are anti-white, you are a lying piece of shit. That’s all you do, I tried to give you a chance but you’re not a real person. Why don’t you apologize for your fucking thousands of years old ancestors because you’re white, Louie.

“You’re white, why don’t you apologize for who you are? Apparently, we should feel guilty about being white. We can’t have a majority of white people because we would have a great country with a low crime rate, God forbid.”

Theroux then questioned Gionet about his comments, pointing out that promoting a sense of white racial loyalty by definition meant that he was a white nationalist.

Violently denying that he was a white nationalist, Gione asked the journalist what he thought of him, to which Theroux replied: “I think you are a talented TV presenter and live broadcaster.

“But part of what you do I find deeply toxic, and I think it’s anti-Semitism, racism, that’s what I think.”

“I am not a white nationalist,” he replied. “You must put it out of your mind. Don’t believe lies.
