Sure, now you're restating your thesis as a metaphor, after some goalpost shifting ("called for
retaliation"). You've already been shown why your prediction is baseless (in terms of, you know, what is actually happening and has happened; if you want to stay within the realm of thought experiments, inaccurate metaphors and extrapolations based on extrapolations be my guest), and your framing is incorrect, so I don't have anything else to say to you.

I unfortunately don't think we can rule out copycats of any ideological persuasion, I don't think any of us should be surprised if this keeps happening. That doesn't mean that those attacks will happen according to the frame Yasna has suggested, though. The idea of an armed conflict between
Salafi jihad and neo-Nazism (rather than various far-right groups attacking soft targets) sure might be a nice wet dream for nationalists, but it's not what's happening.

The stated reason is that it's run by a "corporation" and that Pewdiepie (a millionaire who makes trashy videos for preteens) represents "independent creators" on YouTube. But of course it degenerated into racist comments by a lot of his fanbase pretty quickly.
He even made a pretty pathetic "hip hop" music video with absolutely stellar, totally-not-xenophobic, lyrics such as:
"you India, you lose [...]
I got nine-year-olds of worlds (???) so hold your defecation [...]
Motlu Patlu, what the fuck is that even supposed to mean?/your language (sic) sounds like it come (sic) from the mumble rap community
