Steven Crowder’s show has regularly been a bastion of racist, sexist, and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. He received at least four strikes from YouTube in 2021 for violating policies against hate speech and misinformation on the platform. And the beginning of 2022 has clearly shown he is not tempering his dangerous rhetoric, as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day YouTube broadcast of Louder with Crowder was a disgusting, obscene, and racist cesspool.
Crowder began the segment by claiming that King’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech would be “shit on by today's left,” before criticizing the civil rights leader for becoming “far more radical as life went on.”
After playing excerpts from one of King’s later speeches, the host promised his audience that “we'll get to the crack whores, and we'll get to the orgies, we'll get to all of that which a lot of you don't know about MLK.” Taking on a mocking impression of King’s voice, Crowder said: “I have a dream of nine crack whores at a Motel 6.”
Guest Darrin Crowder said that if King was alive today, he would wonder why people still “complain” about racism because he never wanted to “play the victim card in perpetuity.” Co-host Gerald Morgan said King’s vision was already realized in the 1990s.
Once again taking on an impression of King’s voice, Crowder played his own updated version of the “I Have a Dream” speech mocking “the Black Lives Matter community and the woke left community who enable them,” and later said King wouldn’t use a condom: “There's no faster way to ruin an orgy than a rubber.”
Despite having a policy against hate speech, YouTube continues to enable Crowder to stream racism and bigotry on its platform.
