Hbomberguy Comrade 04/10/2017 (Mon) 00:16:29 [Preview] No. 140
Do most people on here really consider this guy to be a great person, important and valuable to the left and whatnot? I say not really, despite that he made some valid points - at least, absolutely not as a 'celeb'.

He made some valid observations about Sargon's idiocy, which is positive if you're able to take something with a grain of salt and separate it from a questionable whole, but converting someone from "Sargon fan" to "Hbomb fan" just replaces one form of idiocy with another (don't care what the lesser of the two idiocies is, I'd rather just have people not be dumb). There are also more successful channels that tackle real politics better which makes me doubt that he is "needed".

-Got big by shooting fish in a barrel (lol Aurini)

-"I'm a big anti-capitalist guys! I express this by focusing on retarded gamergate drama, and convincing people that every titty anime I like is communist, over serious real-world issues"

-White-knighting No Man's Sky, I guess because it's a TRUE AND HONEST NON CAPITALIST INDIE GAME that just happens to be an extremely corporate product hugely backed and marketed by Sony

-Pseudo-intellectual analysis videos about games & cinema that prove he uses his supposed feminist anti-capitalism as a crutch to make up for poor analytical skills (for one he has very shit understanding of technical, non-ideological merits in games, cinema etc)

-Uncritically friends with pedo creep Sarah Nyberg who at best shared CP and at worst is a legit predator, because not being friends with her would mean letting the OTHER SIDE win; AKA the same logic idiots like Sargon use to justify white knighting Jontron's racism.

-Often either stupid or disingenuous; really obviously misreads shit even as he's showing it onscreen, claimed the big bad gamers never cared about male sexualization being removed from a FF iOS game even though his video came out days after a popular big bad gamer channel made an entire video highlighting said censorship and getting a "this is bullshit" reaction from its audience (likely where he found out about said censorship from to begin with)
Basically, he's mainly a dumb gamergate drama debate nerd more concerned with epically owning other e-celebs and making himself look woke than he is with enacting real-world change. The occasional good points he's made would be 100x better off coming from the mouth of someone who is overall a more thoughtful and intelligent person and are hardly unique ideas he came up with.
He's good for pointing out the idiocy of most right-wing "anti-SJW" youtubers, and you're living under a rock if you don't see the importance of that, and how popular and influential those youtubers can get.
Also I just find him legitimately entertaining.
>He's anti-GG
Into the trash he goes.
Pro GG and anti GG shit is about as equally unimportant as far as real world sociopolitical issues go. It's fine to follow this stuff if you care about video games but it has little relevance to normal people.
I just don't want a "muh SJW culture war" cultist manchild replaced with a pedo loving corporate product-shilling faux-communist woke gamer cult manchild and I'm sick of "lesser evils".

If Youtube celebs are important then I'd rather promote a guy like Jimmy Dore who actually mainly focuses on legit issues and says far less dumb shit - it's actually more convenient anyway because he already has a bigger following. I don't agree with all of his opinions and practices but I agree with a good enough chunk to not feel like I'm promoting someone I dislike for the sake of tribalism.
Most of this is nitpicking.

His videos are entertaining and anti-reactionary, not to mention extremely popular.

I don't get this obsession with e-celebs needing to be ultra-pure in order to be accepted.
I don't get the obsession with e-celebs

he looks to white to me... honestly he should invite more minorities to participate...
>le joo joo maymay
Don't you need to purchase some tinfoil bucko?

not even trying
Of course there's a lot of rich jews, their culture puts an emphasis on material success but the real problem is with capitalism itself. Even if you got rid of all the jews you would just have atheist capitalists and christian capitalists exploiting everyone.
It's not the jews who make the system bad, it's the system that is bad.
