Post A three minute video

This is a breakdown of a three minute video posted by a user E;R. The link below brings you to a backup channel called PUNISHE;R.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3Jw9u ... dxAGgcIdrw

While this video was originally on their main channel, it has since been removed for violating Youtube's hate speech policy.
Whereas the original video was titled "Pearl Lies Shamelessly to Steven", the reupload is titled "Pearl Continues Lying Shamelessly".
The thumbnail depicts the character Pearl, with a comically large nose more than twice the length it actually is in scene.
Run time of video is 2:55. Both videos were posted over two years ago, the reupload having occurred on 11/25/2016.

This video is composed primarily of clips from a cartoon called "Steven Universe". "Steven Universe" is a story that takes place in a fantasy setting that involves two races: humans, and gems. Gems are sentient beings borne of crystals that hail from a far away planet.

0:00 - 0:21 The video opens with two characters: Steven, and Pearl. Steven is the titular character of the series, a young boy whose mother was a gem. Pearl is a gem that worked for Steven's mother. Steven is on the couch, looking at a friend's blog, concerned that he might have upset his friend. Pearl enters scene and begins to talk to Steven. Dialogue is as follows:

Pearl: "What's wrong, Steven?"

Steven: "I think I broke Renaldo's heart."

Pearl: "Oh, Steven. Humans just lead short, boring, insignificant lives, so they make up stories to feel like they're a part of something bigger. They want to blame all the world's problems on some single enemy they can fight, instead of a complex network of interrelated forces beyond anyone's control."

0:22 Hard cut to black. Offenbach's Infernal Galop begins to play.

0:23 - 0:34 Three characters in scene: a gem named Garnet on left, Steven in Center, Pearl on right, a centipede monster held tightly by Pearl. Garnet is also a gem that worked for Steven's mother. All three characters are standing. Garnet and Pearl look down at Steven, while Steven looks at and talks to Pearl. Dialogue is as follows:

Steven: "Ooh! Can I come? Can I? Can I?"

Pearl: "Steven, until you learn to control the powers in your gem, we'll take care of protecting humanity. Okay?"

Steven: "Aww, man."

0:33 - 0:34 Pearl has just declared that they'll protect humanity. Text appears covering the screen which reads: From what?

0:34 - 0:39 Scenes of Pearl and Garnet fighting centipedes. Cut to black.

0:40 - 0:45 Fighting scenes continue. An unseen object explodes in the sky.

0:46 - 0:51 Close up of Pearl from previous scene is superimposed onto montage as said montage continues to play. The following dialogue is repeated: "All the world's problems on some single enemy they can fight"

0:51 - 1:13 Montage continues. Centipede monsters are no longer scene, all characters shown are vaguely human.

1:14 - 1:30 Montage continues. A spaceship shaped like a human hand plummets to Earth, and explodes.

1:30 - 1:40 Montage of Steven Universe scenes comes to a halt. New montage begins, showing pictures of real people, including names and comments. Names and comments are as follows:

2:01 - 2:14 We pan out from the word gems in bold, intermittently cutting to a previous snapshot of Pearl. At 2:09, the snapshot of Pearl goes black and white, with Pearl's eyes lighting up red while she drools blood. In the end we now see the message in its entirety, which reads as follows: CUT THE (((GEMS)))

2:14 - 2:17 We see Pearl being spun around in the air by Garnet as she laughs. We repeatedly pan in towards her head as she laughs. Screen cuts to black. Infernal Galop ends.

2:20 A new song begins playing: "Nothing Happened in this World", composed for a different show called Little Busters.

2:22 Text fades in, reading as follows: We're running out of time.

2:27 - 2:29 Cut to a scene from Steven Universe, then fades to black. New text reads as follows: The invasion was never called off.

2:31 - 2:36 New text fades in, reading as follows: It continues from within. First scene depicted in the video slowly fades into and then out of view. Text fades out.

2:37 - 2:44 New text fades in, reading as follows: Gems are, without a doubt, the single greatest threat to humanity's continued survival. A new scene from Steven Universe fades in, showing a large computer which depicts a map of the Earth.

2:44 - 2:51 Scene fades out as new text fades in, reading as follows: We must secure our existence and a future for human children. Text then fades, to be replaced with new text which reads as follows: Or perish.

2:51 - 2:55 Previous song ends. Cut to a new scene from Steven Universe. Pearl is standing at a chalkboard, giving a lecture to two characters. Dialogue is as follows:

Pearl: "Of course not. That would be ridiculous."

2:55 Musical sting. Zoom in on Pearl's face. Pearl's eyes light up red.

Well, that's the video in its entirety. I glossed over most of the characters and actual action scenes depicted, as I thought it wasn't important to describe them in detail. One last thing I would like to add: The symbol "((()))" is commonly referred to as echoes, and is attributed to Mike Enoch, founder of The Right Stuff blog and The Daily Shoah podcast. It's a means of dog-whistling to other white supremacists by referencing 'The Jewish Question'.

The main reason I decided to do this is because the creator of this video, E;R, was recently promoted by the youtuber Pewdiepie, who as of this writing as a following of 77,185,671.

So this is all an anti-semitic rant?

Boggles the mind what lengths people will go to when fiddling with their prejudices in public.
"a reprehensible human being"
Beliefs are, by definition, things we don't know to be true.

Yeah, that's basically all the video is. I just find it interesting because it's got me thinking about the potential to espouse propaganda through the use of comedy.
