I’m tired of branding myself with labels.
I’m not interested in jumping on bandwagons anymore.
I’m much more skeptical of movements and cults of personality. This is due to watching the spectacular collapse of the Alt-Right. We’re seeing history repeat itself with the America First movement.
Does anyone remember Beardson Beardly? He first gained notoriety as an irony bro streamer during the Alt-Right years. After Charlottesville, Beardson was one of the loudest voices on the internet who was condemning “wignats” in the name of “optics.” He later went on to become a Groyper general and something like second-in-command of the America First movement.
I never had any interest in America First. I couldn’t imagine following or looking up to people like Beardson, Baked Alaska or Nick Fuentes. I’m not an incel gamer or a Zoomer and could never relate to that subculture. These people struck me as being driven more by their hatred of White women than anything else. After breaking off from the Alt-Right, this crowd went more and more in that direction.
I eventually lost touch with these people after they were banned from Twitter and YouTube and set up their own websites like Cozy.tv. I haven’t been following what goes on there and have heard less and less about them. I have heard about the drama in the America First movement though. Beardsoy last popped up on my radar screen when he appeared in that Louis Theroux documentary on AF in which he threatened to anally rape Brittany Venti. Needless to say, it wasn’t very optical.
Did you know that Beardson’s wife recently divorced him and left him for a black guy?
Did you hear about the drunken meltdown that he had about it which he livestreamed to the world?
I feel sorry for Beardson.
I’m not writing this article to specifically dump on him. I just can’t help but notice the tendency of these guys to self destruct and how character always seems to be destiny. Baked Alaska chased clicks and content into the Capitol on 1/6 and is now going to prison. In Beardson’s case, he is angry, alone and depressed now after being involved in this relationship for 11 years. He burned that relationship and alienated his wife in order to appeal to all of these incel losers on the internet.
This was all extensively covered in the drama community.
Note: Beardson denounces optics at 3:53:00 in the third video.
