US political commentator Matt Walsh said that all anime are satanic
Finally, far-right political commentator Matt Walsh said that all anime are satanic.
Walsh was conducting an online Q&A when asked for his thoughts on the genre. He then responded by saying that “all anime is satanic” but has no argument as to why. He then went on to say that “every anime seems strange”, “bizarre” and “creepy” and that all teenagers and adults should not watch it.
Walsh then went on to “apologize” for his recent statement, but doubled down by saying that “all cartoons are satanic. Including Paw Patrol.” At this point, it’s pretty uncertain if he really means it or if he’s trolling at this point.
Finally, Walsh confirmed this on Twitter that he doesn’t care enough about anime to really understand the subject.
