The White Supremacists Are Coming…

Jon Jafari is a well known YouTube gamer and comedian who was the original cohost of popular channel Game Grumps.

Over the years, Jafari — who goes by JonTron online — racked up roughly 12 million subscribers by making minor cameos throughout the YouTube community.

Now, he’s working on his latest project: going full-on white supremacist and making batshit crazy claims about immigration!

This week, Jafari sparked major controversy by going off on a nationalist tirade claiming that Mexican immigrants are setting up "ethnic enclaves" in the U.S. "to break parts of America off back into Mexico."

Jafari began his downward spiral on Sunday by defending congressman Steve King‘s controversial tweet indicating support of white nationalism.

The Iowa Representative included the offensive remarks with an Islamophobic cartoon, posting on Twitter:

Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.

King was condemned over his disgusting comments, which he later doubled down on in a CNN interview, claiming he’d "like to see an America that’s just so homogenous that we look a lot the same from that perspective."

Wow. Surely, no sane-minded individual would back these horrible remarks. Right? Wrong!

Enter JonTron, who swiftly defended King with a xenophobic tweet of his own, writing:

Wow, how scandalous, Steve King doesn’t want his country invaded by people who have contempt for his culture and people! NAZI!!!

@ChrisRGun that’s exactly it, it’s only white nations that aren’t allowed to protect their culture

Damn, we were not expecting that — and neither were Jafari’s fans, especially given that the gamer is the son of an Iranian immigrant.

But even after followers reminded Jafari the irony of his own lineage, the YouTuber just got worse and worse:

@Genowyn1 and if it weren’t for the founding stock of the country I wouldn’t be able to have these opportunities. Nothing to do with deserve

@Laurence_Russel what he said about my dad frankly doesn’t matter, what matters is the truth

@OmniDestiny @alarabi98 @Laurence_Russel If a nation cannot decide who to let in, or remove, it is not a nation at all

@OmniDestiny For now, yes. Anyone with eyes to see, and who doesn’t want to virtue signal can see that’s rapidly deteriorating

@OmniDestiny Yes we live on the backs of what our forefathers built for us, our mistake is taking it for granted. Things can change quickly

@OmniDestiny @SJWsnoke Read into it what you will, no one would ask Japan to become less Japanese

@OmniDestiny @SJWsnoke What I’m simply saying is, if being a minority is such a great thing, why does no one else seem to want to be it?

Hmm… it appears all that gaming has affected Jafari’s cognitive development.

Maybe turn off the screen and pick up a book, buddy.
