Any pseudo-science, conspiracy theories, etc[edit]

I watch hbomb. He's an anarcho-communist (https://mobile.twitter.com/hbomberguy/status/827630562777169921https://ask.fm/Hbomberguy/answers/137164984363) and that should be noted, as should any other radical political views. He got a lot of flak from other socialists for not fully supporting a sexual assault victim in 2011 (https://mobile.twitter.com/thomavella/status/848924894368858113http://hbomberguy.tumblr.com/post/159210444691/an-apology), and there's some shit about SomethingAwful and involvement with drama-reactionary Mister Metokur (https://archive.fo/ZIWmC) but both seem very internet-drama-y.

Sargon admitting he had one good point?[edit]

Why does this matter? Almost everyone has made at least one good point in their lives. Just because someone admits you said one good thing doesn't mean you 'win', and suddenly you're right about everything and the other guy is wrong. The line just seems meaningless and only intended to imply that somehow HBomberGuy is right and Sargon is wrong. — Unsigned, by: 209.202.4.164 / talk / contribs

Bread and Butter[edit]

Is his Bread and Butter really politics? He seems to do much more gaming and general media content than anything politics related.— Unsigned, by: 152.78.175.168 / talk / contribs

'Extreme left'[edit]

The article contains outlandish speculation about his 'communist views' based on some comment on AskFM. He has stated multiple times that he does not consider himself a communist, and do not support communist regimes and so on. Calling him 'extreme left', let alone saying he identifies himself as such (he never did, not even ironically, as far as I can tell), is simply red-baiting. RW should be better than this.

User:GrammarCommie reverted the removal of these claims.--SkullGang (talk) 20:07, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

You've never heard of crypto-politics have you? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:01, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
@SkullGang In two answers, he called himself 'very left' or 'far left'. In many answers, he called himself 'socialist' -- definitely, by American or even European standards, 'far left'. We're literally using his words to describe him -- how can we be more charitable? Herr FuzzyKatzenPotato (talk/stalk) 03:31, 6 February 2018 (UTC)
'Far left' is something very different than 'extreme left'. In American politics, they're seen as the same, but Hbomberguy lives in UK. Being 'far-left' in the UK is seen very differently (although not positively either) than in the US. He has also explicitly rejected the label communist during his Twitch streams multiple times.--SkullGang (talk) 06:45, 6 February 2018 (UTC)
@SkullGang The link for the 'extreme left' quote is dead and wasn't archived so I'll remove it. You also do have a point that it's loaded language. Do you have any timestamped links for his Twitch stream quotes? If you want to add that he has rejected the label, you'll need a source. CowHouse (talk) 07:02, 6 February 2018 (UTC)
If we're doing baseless speculation about someone's political beliefes, then what makes us different than conservapedia or other nutjob websites.--SkullGang (talk) 06:45, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

Rape apology?[edit]

Multiple articles on the site talk about rape apology and the negatives of it, why doesn't Hbomberguy's article have anything about his rape apologism, or his refusal to acknowledge properly his horrific treatment of the poor girl he harassed? — Unsigned, by: 76.190.50.154 / talk / contribs

I'm not aware of it. What happened? CowHouse (talk) 03:36, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
Short story is that former friend (and artist commissioned for work on videos) Klaus posted a callout about how Hbomb was pals with someone from their old SA crew who threatened Klaus with rape, and when Klaus confronted Hbomb about it Hbomb gaslit him suggesting he was misremembering. Klaus' blog no longer exists but you can still see the relevant posts archived here: https://archive.is/https://dicksweredinner.tumblr.com/*— Unsigned, by: 76.204.124.120 / talk / contribs
Well, personally, I found out about this because he very publicly(and in my own opinion appropriately) apologized for it, saying it was wrong to trust a friend just because they were a friend about such a serious thing. It's probably still worth including. Just contextually, omitting the apology is probably a bad idea as well. Apologism apology? ikanreed🐐Bleat at me 19:29, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
I call it 'apology for apology'. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 19:57, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
I made it. — Unsigned, by: Dontcarebear / talk / contribs
Those discord screencaps are definitely a thing I hadn't been exposed to. ikanreed🐐Bleat at me 17:31, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
It's worth noting that at least one of the people involved in adding this to the article has been trying to 'raise awareness' of this across multiple sites while very intentionally omitting a lot of information, including some of Brewis's reasons for not linking to the callout post (a doxxing attempt by Klaus and later, someone registering Klaus's account name after it went down and redirecting it to malware). It's very strange that Dontcarebear would mention that discussion of the matter isn't allowed on Brewis's Discord, without also mentioning in the article the reasons stated in their own sources ('there has been a big problem with harassment in this server over public callouts') and without mentioning Klaus's doxxing attempt.
Brewis's initial reaction was shitty in the extreme, but what's going on right now isn't, as claimed elsewhere, a good-faith attempt at holding Brewis accountable or pushing him to improve, and it isn't an honest attempt at documenting the situation. Dontcarebear is omitting or selectively presenting information across all the websites they're pushing this on. 84.180.151.137 (talk) 19:54, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
Hm. [Seems Dontcarebear has been caught in a lie.](https://www.reddit.com/r/BreadTube/comments/a6181k/comment/ebwcwrm) 84.180.80.85 (talk) 08:38, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
oof The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk)
I deleted the post as per the victim's wishes - they didn't want it public, but this had only been stated in private. As for being 'caught in a lie' the quotes of Hbomb deleting stuff were provided by the victim himself as evidence of Hbomb deleting evidence. It turns out this was not the case.Dontcarebear (talk) 09:30, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, internet telephone with assholes involved happened. That's why screenshots that don't supply context suck ass. ikanreed🐐Bleat at me 03:17, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Respecting the victim's wishes[edit]

It's been suggested, though not discussed in detail, that Klaus doesn't want this talked about too much. If that's true(is it true?), should we cut the section entirely to respect their privacy? ikanreed🐐Bleat at me 03:21, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Do we know for sure Klaus even wants this info to be public? Didn’t Klaus delete their tumblr post about it? It feels weird to keep this section up, for multiple reasons. Dotforest (talk) 01:58, 23 December 2020 (UTC)
Actually, it looks a lot of the corroborating information around this was deleted or seems to be untrustworthy due to vendettas. Given concerns about both privacy and trustworthiness, it doesn't seem right to leave it up. 172.249.182.101 (talk) 21:07, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

reddit garbage[edit]

Don't wanna point fingers but it looks a whole heck of a lot like a bunch of people on a socialist reddit have a specific beef with Bomb and told their people to go edit this page to say he's banned from their page and then repeat their exact version of a bad thing he did and apologised for over a year ago — Unsigned, by: 87.101.92.78 / talk

I mean, they're allowed to do that. Left beef is a thing, circular firing squad and all. ikanreed🐐Bleat at me 21:14, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
I don't think it's a circular firing squad when people have legitimate grievances to air. Regardless of this specific situation, people shouldn't get a pass just because they're in the same political field as you.Tower151617Coda (talk) 02:13, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Just throwing my two cents in here, but rape apology is clearly the wrong word here. Since he's actually being accused of not believing the victim. Which is a very different thing. For this and also the thing with calling him an extremist, (for not liking capitalism?) the page does look biased at the moment. 2001:56A:71BA:6800:DC8:BEF8:F741:7223 (talk) 04:52, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Harris Michael Brewis[3][4] (born 19 September 1992),[1][2] better known as Harris Bomberguy or Hbomberguy for short, is an English YouTuber, Twitch streamer,[5] and political figure. Brewis produces video essays on a variety of topics such as film, television, and video games, often combining them with arguments from left-wing political and economic positions.[6][7][8] He also creates videos aimed at debunking conspiracy theories and responding to alt-right and antifeminist arguments.[9]

Content[edit]

Brewis started the Hbomberguy YouTube channel on 28 May 2006.[10] As of 20 December 2020, the channel has over 700,000 subscribers.[10] Brewis' presentation techniques include hand-drawn animation and humour to make his points.[11] His videos also deal with topics related to politics and social justice, including analyses of alt-right arguments and themes.[8][11] Brewis has built upon his 'measured responses' style to form what has become a series of close readings of cultural figures such as flat Earth conspiracy theorists, pickup artists and content creators who perpetuate allegations about the feminising effect of soybeanphytoestrogens.[9]

Along with his political analysis and measured response series, Brewis has been producing long-form media reviews and video essays on a number of topics, such as television, film, internet culture and video games.

Mermaids charity stream[edit]

Graham Linehan Hbomberguy Twitter

From 18 to 21 January 2019, Brewis continually streamed an attempt to complete Donkey Kong 64 to raise money for British transgender charity organization Mermaids, which he completed in 57 hours and 48 minutes.[12] The charity had been designated funding by the British National Lottery, but the funding was withheld and put under review after criticism by Irish comedy writer Graham Linehan and others.[13] This inspired Brewis to livestream in support of the charity.

The livestream featured many notable guests, including U.S. RepresentativeAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez; activist Chelsea Manning; actress Mara Wilson; journalists Paris Lees and Owen Jones; Adam Ruins Everything creator Adam Conover; author Chuck Tingle; Matt Christman and Virgil Texas of the Chapo Trap House podcast; Donkey Kong 64 composer Grant Kirkhope; game designers Rebecca Heineman, Josh Sawyer, John Romero and Scott Benson; YouTubers Natalie Wynn, Lindsay Ellis, Abigail Thorn and Jim Sterling; as well as the CEO of Mermaids, Susie Green.[9][14][15]Colin Mochrie, Neil Gaiman, Cher, Matthew Mercer, Adam Savage, Hidetaka Suehiro and SonicFox also tweeted in support of the livestream and the charity.[16][17] The livestream began with a goal of US$500, but it passed that goal and several subsequent funding targets quickly.[18] In the first 24 hours, the livestream raised over $100,000. In total, over $347,000 (GB£265,000) was raised for the charity through the livestream,[12][19][20] with over 659,000 people watching the stream.[9]

The livestream garnered attention and praise.[19][21][18] It was described by The Guardian as 'an antidote to the worst of gaming culture'[9] and praised in a motion lodged in the Scottish Parliament by Patrick Harvie.[22] In July 2019, the LGBT magazine Attitude recognized the livestream by honoring Brewis with an Attitude Pride Award.[23] The Mermaids charity Twitter account also thanked Brewis for the livestream.[24][25][26]

Reception[edit]

Brewis has been praised by critics for his YouTube channel's format and commentary.[6][7][11] His video analysis of the Ctrl+Alt+Del comic 'Loss' has received critical acclaim: it was selected by Polygon as one of the ten best video essays of 2018 and was nominated three times in the Sight & Sound collection of 2018's most outstanding videographic criticism, with British film critic and filmmaker Charlie Lyne stating: 'The reliably great H. Bomberguy pushed the YouTube video essay into new territory with this Matryoshka doll of an upload: a layered critique of the gaming webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del, Tommy Wiseau’s bad-taste classic The Room and the YouTube video essay itself. To cap it all off, it’s a horror movie'.[27][28] His video on VHS, which was produced in collaboration with Shannon Strucci, was praised by TenEighty Magazine as an excellent 'deep-dive' in the topic.[29]

Personal life[edit]

Brewis is bisexual[30] and a member of the Labour Party. Brewis has experienced male pattern baldness and has shaved his head in solidarity with the balding community.[31]
