Below the fun description, we've included a rant about the video in question ("Youth Suicide Fantasy")
We're back from our hiatus to finish what we started last year - Son of Baka-mas! This time, we have a doozy. Youth Suicide Fantasy is a video we've hosted on this channel for some time in it's unaltered form, but now we bring you the Bakadouga it deserves. Secular music is Satanic, your children will be consumed by it if you don't stop it, and the only solution is to burn it all and purchase officially licensed Christian media.

While I can understand that people have concerns about the effects that media can have on the most impressionable of our society, shit like "Youth Suicide Fantasy" can fuck right off. Two victims of suicide have their corpses metaphorically pulled out of their graves and danced like marionettes to convince church-attending parents (and their children) that media of a particular genre (in this case Secular Rock) is responsible. If it genuinely came from a place of concern, they would have actually focused on that. Instead, this 20 minute special is just an advertisement for their book "Why Knock Rock?" and Contemporary Christian music. You know, two products sold at the exact same kind of store. One of which literally piles money into their pockets. Oh, fancy that: the marionettes are meant to be sign spinners for MAKING MONEY.
That's the cruelest part of the Satanic Panic - not that there were people genuinely concerned that there was inappropriate media being shown to the impressionable, but that some people looked at the death and suffering and said, "Ya know, I could make a lot of money from this shit. I just need to dress and talk a certain way, and I can convince those people that I'm just like them! They'll give me every damn penny they have looking to avoid the big bad monster lying on the MTV and the radio stations."
This video isn't about suicide. It isn't even about analyzing media, and being more considerate of what you support and consume.
It's about sowing fear and sewing it into the cultural fabric of one of the largest and most influential religions on the damn planet.
Replace Satan and Satanism being mentioned in the video with Homosexual and Homosexual Lifestyle. Replace them with Muslims and Islam. Replace them with the poor and Welfare. The death of the Satanic Panic didn't end this practice, it just changed the enemy. And with films like the God's Not Dead series (made even more relevant with the third film so close to release), War Room, and the increasingly more "Gnostic-ly" leaning Evangelical movement, forgetting the dangers these wolves in preacher's robes pose for both our most downtrodden and our society as a whole is the single greatest mistake we could make.
That's the real issue here:
