Several misogynistic manosphere influencers are making antisemitic comments and pushing conspiracy theories about Jewish people on podcasts and online.
The manosphere is an online community of websites, bloggers, and influencers cultivating a worldview based on outdated, extremist gender politics repackaged for the internet age. The community valorizes pick-up artists, violent misogynists, incels, men’s rights activists, and conservative cultural critics.
While purporting to provide dating, financial, and lifestyle advice to men, some manosphere figures are aligning themselves with far-right personalities. Their programs serve as gateways to push audiences further to the right toward more dangerous ideologies.
Fresh & Fit podcast
The misogynistic Fresh & Fit podcast, hosted by Why Women Deserve Less author Myron Gaines (real name Amrou Fudl) and dating and lifestyle coach Walter Weekes, describes itself as “the #1 men’s podcast in the world.” The podcast recently hosted Holocaust-denying white nationalist Nick Fuentes, who appeared multiple times and made numerous antisemitic comments. During livestreams, he and white nationalist ally Sneako — another guest — denied the Holocaust, justified Nazi book-burnings, and claimed that transgender identities are the result of Jewish conspiracies.
Two Fresh & Fit videos featuring Fuentes have over 1 million views on Rumble, and Fuentes has gloated about his impact on the show’s viewership.
In another livestream, Gaines again bragged about discussing the “JQ” on his show.
“It’s JQ time,” Gaines said. “Everybody else is too much of a bitch to have this conversation. You can’t have this conversation on no major podcast.”
During one of the podcast’s panel discussions, Gaines praised and defended Adolf Hitler.
“Though he did things that were morally incorrect, he definitely did a bunch of things correct for his country. That’s a fact,” Gaines said.
A video of Fuentes and several women giving the Nazi “Sieg Heil” salute on the set of the podcast circulated online.
The two Fresh & Fit hosts have repeatedly hosted 9/11 truther and Holocaust denier Ryan Dawson to push antisemitic conspiracy theories about Jewish people being involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
During an episode titled “Ryan Dawson REVEALS 9/11 Coverup By US Intel Agencies, Saudis & Israel! (PART 1),” Gaines pushed a debunked antisemitic conspiracy theory about Israelis being involved in 9/11.
Hannah Pearl Davis
“Why can’t we talk about the — without being kicked off of YouTube,” Davis sang. “Now, I’m not saying Hitler was a good guy, but I kind of want to know why.”
“Now, there’s all these conspiracy theories, and the more they talk I think maybe they’re right,” Davis continued. “But I can’t even listen to the convo, I can’t even have the conversation, without being canceled by the left and the right.”
Fuentes celebrated Davis’ song, saying, “We love you, Pearl.” He has previously appeared on Davis’ dating talk and debate show.
Davis attempted to walk back her comments during an appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored, saying the song “was more about cancel culture.” She later added, “I’m a fan of conspiracy theories.”
White nationalist ally, manosphere influencer, and former associate of the rapper Ye (formerly Kanye West) Sneako (real name Nico Kenn De Balinthazy) has made several antisemitic comments online and in interviews.
Sneako has been described as “a cheap imitation of [Andrew] Tate” and rose to prominence on YouTube for his gaming, motivational, and man-on-the-street interview videos. He later shifted toward making misogynistic and hateful content.
“Jews have the ultimate power,” Sneako said during an interview with No Jumper’s Adam Grandmaison. “That’s just true, they have ultimate control and power and they will abuse it if they need to protect their agenda.”
“In every single industry, if you look at the end of the rabbit hole, it’s always a Jew who controls it,” Sneako said.
“The label owners, the real estate owners, like, all the people with the most amount of money behind the scene is a Jewish guy,” he continued. “Why are we out here slaving away for Jews who are profiting off of us killing each other?”
Sneako has also said that “the Nazis had drip” and that the swastika is “aesthetically pleasing.”
During an appearance on Fresh & Fit, Zherka described Jewish men as “extremely unattractive.”
“We Catholics fuck your Jew women,” Zherka continued. “They’re a little short. Your people are short and they fuck a wall.”
In a bizarre livestream video posted to Reddit, Zherka melted down after finding out a woman he was with is Jewish. “You rule the world and all the banking,” he said to the woman while pretending to hit her.
After the woman said “I don’t like Hitler,” Zherka asked, “The fuck is wrong with you?” He later added, “I’ll regret this, dude.”
Zherka ended the livestream saying, “Hitler was a good guy.”
Reporting shows how easily toxic rhetoric can infiltrate the minds of young audiences, even among users as young as 11 years old. Parents in particular should be aware of the dangers these figures pose. Additionally, this misogynistic and antisemitic rhetoric does not live in a vacuum online; it can lead to real-world violence, threats, and harassment.
