Obscure yet popular YouTube musician Nick Bertke, aka Pogo, put together a video rant about how much he hates homosexuals. His videos get millions of hits.

Bertke lives in Australia but is originally from South Africa reports LGBTQ Nation.

Thanks to his successful online presence he’s garnered a few high-end gigs, one for Pixar and another for the Pokemon Company.

The name of his YouTube channel “Fagattron” is what people are focusing on, specifically why he chose that name. His answer was given in an uploaded video he posted in early May. Be warned, it's very frank and might be disturbing to some. 

 He explains, “I’ve always had a very thorough dislike of homosexuals. I’ve never liked a grown man acting like a 12-year-old girl. I’ve always found that to be quite disgusting. And so I thought to myself, how best can I express to the world that gays are just an abomination?”

“To be a bit more P.C. about it, how can I express to the world that I view gays as an abomination?”

He adds: “Nothing encapsulates, really, the sassiness of a gay guy quite like the word ‘faggot’ you know? So I thought to myself, well I’m going to call myself ‘Faggotron” and hopefully people get it…”

He goes even further to say that when he heard about the Orlando shooting his first response was a triumphant fist pump. 

Bertke is no stranger to endorsing the extreme right. He's expressed how women should be treated as children which according to him makes them sexually aroused. "Discipline, reprimand, and complete indifference. I think the feminine woman craves the attributes of a firm father in the man she enters a relationship with.”

He later claimed that his posts about women were a social experiment. 

The video containing his sentiments about gay men was uploaded on May 2 as "unlisted," but a Reddit user brought it to a much broader audience.
