It’s been a bad week for the YouTube outrage peddler, Jeremy Hambley, commonly known as The Quartering.
He started out by attacking popular video game and comic creator Doug TenNapel, challenging the extremely successful artist by saying he would no longer support TenNapel becuase he’s “not real counter-culture” since he refuses to use the #ComicsGate hashtag on Twitter.
It’s a ridiculous proposition, as no one associates the hashtag with counter-culture at this juncture, but only with one youtube program, Ethan Van Sciver, who co-opted the term from comic customers two years ago to consolidate money behind his own youtube outrage outfit. Since he and his minions took the term it’s been a hashtag synonymous with harassment, death threats, and cyberstalking.
Hambley promptly deleted the tweet, creating a fervor among the #ComicsGate users. This is where Hambley started to see that the hashtag meant nothing, but was just a drama outrage farm.
It was also the beginning of Van Sciver turning on Hambley like he’s done to so many other guests on his show.
Hambley received attacks from many of the anonymous bullies under Van Sciver’s wing called “The War Campaign” — a group of low-status males who pretend they’re fighting an actual war by spouting at comic creators on Twitter. Eventually, Hambley had enough and called ComicsGate for the drama mess it is.
This prompted the outrage machine of Van Sciver’s livestream to start talking about Hambley, including showing of private DMs.
Hambley became outraged as well, whether for his own show or clicks or earnestly it’s unclear, but he began attacking Van Sciver for releasing his DMs.
But this is where it gets weird.
Your Favorite Hispanic Author (Me) DMed Hambley to show support, to tell him I’ve been there before — much like I did when I broke his story to Milo Yiannopolous’ Dangerous.com which propelled Hambley into mainstream success (see the trend? It’s usually my stories that give these people their shots!). Hambley, instead of talking rationally, took to Twitter and copied MY DM to him and started swearing about me profusely. As seen here:
I’ll note I never once mentioned ComicsGate to him nor have I adopted any “anti-CG” identity. I’m a comic creator, and I stand in solidarity with people who were wronged by mainstream establishment, or by people acting as bad actors as Van Sciver did to him.
The ironic part is Hambley complained about leaking DMs — and then turned around and did the exact same thing to me in order to get likes.
His grift style is exactly the same as Van Sciver, but he doesn’t pretend he’s making a product. All he does is peddle in outrage, and he’s left with little else:
His channel shows it all with “EPIC FAIL” and “LIAR” plastered on every video. He contributes nothing to the culture, just another gamma male who got a little too popular for his own good and thinks he can do the exact same things as other youtube gamma males he complains about, and then claim some sort of superiority over it.
They love to declare victory even in their defeats.
These YouTubers add nothing to culture. They don’t provide anything positive, they’re just clickbait and outrage peddlers who whine over and over. In fact, they don’t want a real counter cultural movement to thrive or survive because if it did, they’d not have anything to discuss on their channel.
This is why they attack people like Doug TenNapel or myself in order to try to supress our works which are actually family-friendly, pro-American culture, and acting like real change.
I’m doing my part to restore American culture, to make comics great again. Back Dynamite Thor today and be part of the solution, not a part of the perpetual outrage like the Unhinged Hambley.
