Steven Kenneth Bonnell II (1988–), better known as Destiny, is a Twitch streamer and YouTuber. Though primarily a gaming channel, his YouTube has become better known for his political content taking down right-wing and reactionary ideas. He is most famous for exposing JonTron’s white nationalist sympathies via a debate.

General positions[edit]

Below are a few examples of Destiny's progressive neoliberal views:

The good[edit]

Here's a list of some of the alt-right chuds Destiny has debated:

Former alt-right sympathizers, most notably Caleb Cain (Faraday Speaks), currently a leftist YouTube content creator, credit Destiny and ContraPoints, among others, for their de-radicalization.[19][20]

The bad[edit]

Expectably for someone who spends so much of their time criticizing notable right-wingers and anti-SJWs, Destiny has garnered a sizable leftist fanbase. He openly detests the more extremist portion of this portion of his fanbase, though, and even went as far as to say on April Fools' Day 2019:

Oh sorry also by "lefty" I meant commies and shit, not just people who are progressive/lean left.[22]

In an attempt of balance, he has also debated some leftist YouTubers:
