Newsweek Goes Scorched Earth on Wall Street Bets, Tying Them to Far-Right Extremism

Newsweek is on crack, and they are reflective of the delusional desperation that is resident in the legacy media.

When you start comparing a bunch of GenX, Millennial, and Zoomer day traders who beat Hedge Funds at their own game to Far-Right Extremists, you have officially lost it.


“Far-Right Extremists Use GameStop Chaos to Radicalize and Recruit on Telegram”

Any headline like this immediately puts a picture in the mind. It’s not balanced or fair—it’s not even nuanced—it’s throwing gasoline on a raging dumpster fire.

Krystal and Sager on the YouTube Channel talk about why a Hedge Fund is allowed to compare the Wall Street Bets Reddit group to Rioters.

That was last week. Enter Newsweek to slather on and continue the narrative. The Newsweek article contains even more gag-worthy nonsense using every Leftist canard in the playbook:

“Meanwhile, far-right activists and conspiracy theorists on the Telegram messaging service jumped on the chaos as validation of their ideologies and a potential recruiting event for disaffected users. Several tied the trading platform’s actions to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and blamed wealthy Jewish people for the decision.”

Far-right activists? They go for the throat in immediate delegitimization, because in their world, “far-right” always equals BAD. Do you ever see Newsweek describe anything as “far-left”? Find it for me, but I doubt you will.

Then they start in on the Telegram app, which is a free-speech messaging platform that protects the privacy of the users. Herein lies Newsweek’s true target. Put in a nebulous tie with the GameStop-Wall Street Bets battle and then target an app that you cannot control to make another cry for regulation and censorship. This is how it started with Parler, so watch your six, Telegram.


We see you, Newsweek. We see you.

“The post was forwarded from an openly white supremacist, anti-immigration account with more than 10,000 subscribers. That account gloated that “jewish hedge funds” had lost billions, crediting “a bunch of White supremacist reddit day traders” with the price movement. “Now the jewish bankers have to pay up the difference causing hedgefunds to go bankrupt,” it added.”

Now we’ve got White Supremacists and anti-Semites in the mix. It’s curious that Newsweek is interested in anti-Semitism when it comes from the “far-right”, but when it comes from far-Left Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib? Crickets.

Then the article devolves into pointing out the latest legacy media bogeymen: the Proud Boys, and QAnon. <clutch the pearls!>

Couple this with the White Supremacists, and you know things are really bad, folks.

Here, I digress. Seriously, what does that even mean? “Supremacy” is in the eye of the beholder, and from these Black eyes, it continues to strike me as a ridiculous notion. If you’re going to talk about “Supremacy” of a certain race, then how about pointing out Black Supremacy? Atlanta, North Las Vegas, and much of D.C. would fall under this category, where the abundance of Blacks drives the agenda. Look at the Georgia run-off elections and prove me wrong.


Asian Supremacy? Go to Monterey Park, Temple City, and other cities in the San Gabriel Valley of California or Westminster in Orange County California. Compare the amount of Chinese scripts on businesses to those in English. There seems to be some Supremacy going on there, does there not?

Let’s talk about Armenian Supremacy. Glendale, California, and parts of Hollywood and North Hollywood are controlled by this ethnic group.

I have spent quality time in all of these areas, and these are facts.

Here’s the problem. Cherry-picking individual posts on the Telegram app, while inflating the size of the particular group chats, then connecting it to the GameStop-Wall Street Bets battle is fallacious at best, and piss-poor investigative journalism at worst. Where are the receipts? Who among the Wall Street Bets group is involved in any of those other groups? Are you so frickin’ lazy that you cannot even connect those dots?

Apparently so. So much journalisming… so much.

Everybody is talking about GameStop, even friends who pay no attention to the stock market. Everyone is drawing their own comparisons and conclusions. Why is it a problem that groups YOU don’t like are discussing it in their own way, and doing it on an app not controlled by Jack, Mark, or the Jeffs?


Let’s compare it to another story that’s trending. The pederast John Weaver, Republican strategist and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, was exposed again in, of all places, the New York Times for soliciting 21 young men, some as young as 14.

The Lincoln Project immediately disavowed his actions, did the usual PR shuffle, and pretty much said, This should settle it. You can’t judge us by this bad actor.

Most who support this grift machine, including the media, are either leaving them alone or becoming the apologists for the group grifters. This includes the bastion of supposedly balanced journalism called Newsweek. <insert hilarious laughter here>

So, why is Newsweek trying to judge a movement—and get you to do the same—and a platform by the actions of a few bad actors? Why is Newsweek using a broad brush to attach negative groups to what is an explosive exposure of the Elites vs. the common man?

We all know the answer. It is Newsweek’s version of concern trolling in order to taint it, and stop it in its tracks.

Louis Rossmann, a tech YouTuber, puts a fine point on all this. Rossmann points out that the legacy media are now acting as “smear merchants”, and we must do all we can to push back against the smears.


“This is not a financial war, he said.  “This is going to be an information War”.

Bingo. Short video, give it a watch:

Rossmann has this comment pinned to the video:

“Remember; you are a normal person, you made money legally in a bet that a billionaire lost. There will be no limit to the propaganda used to turn the public against you, and people like you.
