Vaush is an American hero and his fans face oppression online, a thread. Image
Vaush since the beginning of his career as an online leftist activist has accrued hundreds of thousands of followers and brought over thousands of people from the center and right, halting fascist movements and helping grow the size of the left.
Vaush has had very influential opinions and ideas that weren't easy to have but have helped the left, from recognizing language and rhetoric as a more important tool, critiquing the exploitation of children under capitalism, and synthesizing a new left wing ideological system.
Vaush has been very electorally effective, from putting aside differences with Destiny to encourage his fans to help campaigning in efforts in Georgia, which successfully helped elect 2 democrat senators in a historically red state... courageously advocating for the election of Joe Biden at a time when many leftists were not willing to support him. With the margin of victory in some states, it is hard to say he didn't have a positive impact on our country's future.
Vaush's ideological contributions can't be unmatched, shifting understandings of anarchism and socialism, even dubbing it "supercapitalism" to portray far left ideas as acceptable paths for society to turn in the dangerous future we have ahead.
And if that didn't convince you, consider that without Vaush, there would be no Alden's number.
It is a shame that after all this that Vaush has done, he and his community are slandered by tankies, wokescolds, and fascists as toxic, bigoted, dumb, and unsafe for minorities when that is far from the case. If you see Vaush fans being bullied defend them. Make a difference.
