Your post will make the uninitiated think that he's clearly an anti-semite but I don't think it's as clear cut as you're making out. Many people around the world find the idea of Nazis/Hitler funny and will make jokes about them. Until they start saying e.g. that Jews control the world, I don't consider these people anti-semitic. Otherwise I'd have to include people like Ricky Gervais and Frankie Boyle in this list but it's clear to me that they are anti-racism.

I've experienced plenty of anti-semtism in my life and so far Pewdiepie hasn't shown any signs of being one in my eyes. There's enough actual anti-semitism in the world for me to start caring about the jokes that Pewdiepie makes.
Look at who he follows on Twitter. Apparently he follows alt-right/far-right figures like Laura Southern, Ben Shapiro, Sam Hyde, Laci Green, Stefan Molynux, and the British guy with the medieval-sounding name.

Being right wing is not the same thing as being an anti-semite/nazi.

Because the left never doxx people and make orchestrated efforts to get people fired for holding the "wrong" views?

Because everyone who isn't left is "alt-right"? Because Pewdiepie totally was racist and anti-semitic.

Laci Green an alt right figure?
