Nick Fuentes says he joined Threads and calls for followers to join it to “red pill” users Fuentes: “I signed up for it last night. I made a fake Instagram. I got on a fake Thread ... if you get in early, maybe some of you guys can blow up and red pill some people on there.” Written by Media Matters Staff Published 07/07/23 10:54 AM EDT Video file Citation From the July 6, 2023, edition of Nick Fuentes' America First livestream NICK FUENTES (HOST): Our featured story tonight, we're talking about Threads, which if you haven't heard, is the Meta alternative to Twitter. Meta being the parent company for Facebook and Instagram. Last night, they launched a brand new app, which is basically a Twitter alternative. They're calling it Threads. Some are calling it gay Twitter. They say it's like Twitter but gay and it's for f–––––– and it's totally censored and it's also for Jews. So we'll talk about that tonight. That'll be our main story. It's not just for Jews. It's for gay people, too. But it's interesting. A lot of people initially said the app sucks, it has limited functionality. For example, they don't have direct messaging yet. They don't have trends, hashtags. So it's still very early. It's in its infant stages. But if you look at the app, this thing is going to blow up. It's got major potential. I signed up for it last night. I made a fake Instagram. I got on a fake Thread. Nobody knows it's me, though. I don't have any followers. Contrary to what you may have heard or seen, you actually need to get an Instagram account to get onto Threads, which is a big problem for me. Later on in the show, Fuentes called for followers to join Threads “to red pill some people on there.” Video file Citation From the July 6, 2023, edition of Nick Fuentes' America First livestream NICK FUENTES (HOST): We'll keep a close eye on Threads. I would say people should join it and just try to stay on there. Try and — I don't know though. I feel like you're just going to get killed on there. Because Instagram is brutal with censorship. And I imagine Threads will be worse. You know, because I'd say try and build a following there. But is it even worth it? I don't think anybody's getting away with anything on there. But, you know, try and build a big account. I mean, if you get in early, maybe some of you guys can blow up and red pill some people on there, but it's not good, man. They are trying to kill Twitter. But I guess the one white pill is that we really are in a battle here. Like you can tell that Elon Musk struck a blow, that the free speech is important there because there's this big response now. They do not like that people are able to say this stuff on Twitter because it's having a very big impact. You can see it already.
