My most popular video at nearly 1.5 million videos is about all the racist things Joe Biden has said over the past 47 years. My second most popular is about my journey from Freemasonry to Catholicism and the third most popular is me eating popcorn while watching Father Altman, which is how many Trad Catholics found me in 2020.
