** Ghost has been strongly critical of communist leaders such as UsefulNotes/JosefStalin and UsefulNotes/MaoZedong for the millions of deaths their regimes caused, but when discussing UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet, Ghost focused on how his capitalist reforms made Chile into one of South-America's most successful economies, and when discussing the massacres he says that the 60,000 or so deaths caused by his brutal regime were all leftist hippies and guerrillas who deserved to die anyway and he was "just protecting his country" and "doing his job" with the massacres. Granted, Pinochet didn't have nearly as high a body count as the aforementioned dictators, but that makes Ghost's claims of being against totalitarianism sound even phonier.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: An unintentional example maybe, but Ghost's thinly-veiled contempt for poor people, leftists, gays, ethnic minorities, and welfare recipients, coupled with his desire to put people he deems useless in "labor camps" during the oft-mentioned but ill-defined capitalist revolution makes the "Ghostler" nickname seem [[ThoseWackyNazis more than a little apropos]]. His calls to overthrow Obama, admiration of UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet, disparaging views of [[StayInTheKitchen women]], his zealous devotion to Donald Trump haven't helped his case either.

** Every time he tries to calm himself down through meditation, he'll end up tossing cans after sighting "that freakin' panda". [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext No, context doesn't help.]]

** Ghost has a great hatred for millennials because he views them among many other things as self centered and egotistical, even though he himself constantly engages in self-fawning throughout his broadcasts and took it to truly ridiculous levels when he gave himself an award in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nyyp3Fu8zrI the 500th episode award show]]

** He accuses liberals of using LogicalFallacies to win arguments, even though he himself frequently resorts to [[AdHominem name-calling]] and [[StrawmanFallacy strawmanning]] when debating with people he disagrees with.

This is especially noticeable whenever he's talking about Stephen Hawking, who Ghost claims isn't a valid scientific authority because he's physically deformed.

** During one episode, Ghost told all the listeners who opposed his bizarre and crazy conspiratorial beliefs that them calling him a tinfoil hat wearer is contributing to government censorship and will bring an end to free speech.

* FlatWorld: While Ghost doesn't support flat earth theory, he strongly believes that Earth isn't spheroid in shape and that space doesn't exist. Ghost has also supported serval theories made by flat earthers such as the theory that Antarctica forms an impenetrable wall along the circumference of the Earth-disk which the government tries to hide (despite plenty of evidence to the contrary) and that the apparent curvature of the horizon is actually caused by the curvature of lenses, which lead to him attacking UsefulNotes/NeilDeGrasseTyson on twitter for saying that earth is "pear shaped". [[note]]What [=DeGrasse=] actually meant by this is how in relative sense Earth is pear shaped since it's slightly wider just south of the Equator based on data collected with satellites, obviously not something you can just see with the naked eye.[[/note]]
