That might all be true, but do you really want to hear about it every single show?Not every show, but he brings him up often. Baked was on Good Morning Groyper a few Fridays ago, his first interview since the pigs let up on him a bit.
They’re old friends, fellow dissident live streamers and are bonded by being similarly de-platformed since The Storm, so I don’t see why Fuentes shouldn’t mention him. ‘Shilling’ seriously isn’t the right word for it.
Nick even hinted that Baked might start a new show on the America First Network once that gets up and running in the future. He also has been talking about looking forward to hanging out at Baked’s Meme Mansion this summer.
We need to address the elephant in the room: Baked Alaska is an annoying faggot and he makes Nick's movement look like a complete joke.
Baked is a frivolous person. All he wants to do is fuck around and have fun. He dresses like a gay rodeo clown. He tells a little joke, sings a little song, does a little dance. He'll do whatever it takes to get attention.
He makes (or used to make) his money doing antisocial shit on stream, like walking up to people and insulting them for no reason. He does cowardly shit like instigate fights and mace people when they try to defend themselves. He walks around with speakers that say shit like "NIGGER NIGGER NIGGER" in public places.
Don't get me wrong, that's all very entertaining to watch. But how is this any better than Patrick Little running up to people and asking them "Have you heard about the Jew?" 3 years ago? Nick brutally humiliated him for it in the IronyBros show.
Once you hitch your wagon to someone like this, you are no longer an authority on "optics" or "whatever looks good or bad for the movement".
