Owen takes a week off

Courtesy of YouTube. Apparently a Boomer was threatened by criticism of his g-g-generation and complained, leading to a strike and a one-week timeout.
Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our hate speech policy.

We've removed the following content from YouTube:

Video: The Boomer - Owen Benjamin
How dare you, Big Bear? How double-dog dare you? This is the banned video, which you can still watch on Unauthorized. Making fun of Boomers is now officially considered "hate speech" by YouTube.

Sorry about the strike vox, but it aint surprising.

Blogger VD August 06, 2019 6:07 AM  

I would strongly recommend people download my Darkstreams on a regular basis because I doubt I'm going to keep them up on YouTube for long. However, there are repositories at both UATV and Bitchute.

Blogger Paulito August 06, 2019 6:11 AM  

Is there any better proof of the absolute accuracy of Owen's position than this reaction?

Blogger Warunicorn August 06, 2019 6:11 AM  

"Our team" = A bunch of fascists in training.

"Hate speech" = whatever it is that they decide to be "hate speech".

So glad I unsubscribed from Google Play Music/YouTube Premium.

Blogger D E K August 06, 2019 6:14 AM  

Just checked: Darkstreams on UATV are going back to episode 296. I also like the older ones. Any suggestions where to upload? I tried brighteon once from the health ranger, but was not totally happy with their website. Any suggestions?

It's easy to buy an additional high-capacity external drive, for Darkstreams and other programming worth keeping locally. Got that in next month's budget.

Blogger Azimus August 06, 2019 6:56 AM  

Reminds me of an old Kids in the Hall skit called "Its time to hate the Swiss". It would be an interesting experiment to post that to youtube to a new account and then complain and see if THAT qualifies as hate speech now...

Blogger Wazdakka August 06, 2019 7:04 AM  

What is hate speech? I asked some friends, and all they could say is that it's bad and needs to be stopped. Is there a definition anywhere?

Blogger Titanium Bear August 06, 2019 7:04 AM  

Comments here led to Owen. Some of the content on the streams-of consciousness disturbed me. Then Vox defended Owen and Owen's sanity. That established credibility. Owen is an Alpha that I can follow. A Feed the Bear subscription only costs only $5. Owen takes letters, checks and packages.

That's certainly a fascinating psychological self-expose. What happened to you that would cause you to imagine that addressing a public figure by his popular nickname is somehow "humiliating"?

After getting tired of paying DropBox every year, I purchased a home based Synology Cloudstation.

It's not that hard to set up (there are good walk through videos out there), it has excellent security (as far as I can tell), and if you mirror, has a built in redundancy. Just slot in more memory as needed (4T, 8T, 12T etc...).

Plus you own it, it's in your home, and you can back up all your old files, photos, videos etc.... onto HDD as opposed external drives (which for me became a nuisance - plus I dropped a 4T :(

It's part of the drive towards greater self-reliance :)

@16 "You're a grown man calling another man "Big Bear." Stop humiliating yourself."

And yet, we Vile Faceless Minions, Dread Ilk, and Ilk -- plus his Evil Legion of Lawyers -- call our Supreme Dark Lord of the Evil Legion of Evil, the Supreme Dark Lor.... well, maybe you get the picture?

Owen Benjamin IS the Big Bear, and his followers ARE the Bears, and they-all are also part of the 'super-group' called the Reprehensibles (h/t to the Death Grandma for the name).

Are you SO ahistorical that you do not realize that EVERY war-band has a name?!

@21 "Owen Benjamin IS the Big Bear, and his followers ARE the Bears, and they-all are also part of the 'super-group' called the Reprehensibles (h/t to the Death Grandma for the name)."

I believe the "Deplorables" is an even more inclusive group, which itself has the Reprehensibles as a subset.

It can get very confusing.

Also, Vox, I believe the adverbial usage "double-dog" is only applicable to "dare" when used with the meaning of challenge or provocation, but not in the context of alarmist query on concerning behavior. It's an understandable mistake...

A video nerd needs to make a Bitchute backup archive of all the Darkstreams, for when YouTube finally purifies the platform of everything to the right of David Hogg, or Canadian Glorious Leader™ Justin Trudeau (Who IS Glorious™).

I once thought Vox's estimate of AD2033 for chaos engulfing North America was too pessimistic. Now, I'm wondering if it's perhaps too late a date.

For those interested in needing Vox’s recommendation, there a simple command line program called “YouTube-DL.exe” that is a great tool for this. It takes only a few seconds, it has a lot of customizable parameters, and works independently of the browser (it’s not a plugin). You can pull videos from bitchute as well.

what for? for quoting the words of a Feminist ( Jessica Valenti ) in response to an article written by a Feminist, about a Feminist standup routine.

it seems that quoting the words of a Feminist is now "Completely inappropriate misogyny". that definition of Hate Speech is getting pretty diffuse.

Blogger David Ray Milton August 06, 2019 10:13 AM  

In the restaurant industry, we have to deal with complaining guests. It’s part of the everyday business. It’s my observation that Gen X and Millenials really hate to complain about anything. When they do complain, they usually look uncomfortable and apologize for asking for their food to be remade or requesting they get something else. But not Boomers. Boomers issue about 90% of the complaints and seem to look forward to doing so. Is there something wrong with their food? Almost never. They just want to complain that their food was not made the same way as their favorite restaurant back East and want to teach you how you should do it going forward.

This YouTube ban makes sense. There’s nothing more Boomer than telling other people how to run their business.

Blogger binks webelf August 06, 2019 10:30 AM  

@39. -- David Ray Milton: "Boomers issue about 90% of the complaints and seem to look forward to doing so."

My son (prepping for career college, working in the service industry), notices exactly this. The Boomers come in with a chip on the shoulder, utter disgruntlement, and complain about anything, everything, even things which are out of my son's control, and seem to take some pleasure in doing so, as if it's their moral right. ANY mistake or oversight is a heinous crime, proving the Boomer right in their prevailing sour attitude.

He's got this handled, with a defiant politeness, taught him by his parents. Smile, pleasant tone, another smile, patiently answer questions, another smile. Boomer flusterment ensues, then the storming out, muttering imprecations. No joy in Mudville, because my son's goat is not for anyone else to get.

The well-meaning parents of these now 55-75 year-olds seem to have spoiled them, which takes all the joy out of everything, even ordinary interactions, where it's as easy to by kind as it is to be grouchy and entitled.

Let's see...youtube deletes video of "edgy" comedian whose cartoon has a white character using the work "N-word" multiple times

Then those dastardly Boomers at youtube-- oops, sorry, wrong generation...the triggered Milennials and GenXers at youtube -- proceed to completely wipe his channel out of youtube land, because the cartoon and the multiple "N-word" references give them a built in excuse.

Plus, they can't see the joke (unfunny as it may be), because they ARE easily triggered and horrified, and have no sense of humor because they are warped Millenials and GenXers.

You know, why not wear a neon sign that says "De-platform me..De-platform me!!"??

I will say, though, the stuff about Buzz Aldrin was amusing -- mildly amusing, mind you, but amusing nonetheless.

By the way, the "N-word" stuff is rather inaccurate -- your average Baby Boomer would never do that. Remember, we thought Malcolm X, Eldridge Cleaver, and the Black Panthers were the shits...

FYI, in my original just deleted post I used the complete "N-Word" -- but I immediately thought, "Oops..don't want to get our estimable blog owner de-platformed!!"

If you understood ANYTHING about psychological conditioning, and why the military uses human-silhoutte targets for marksmanship training (because when they trained soldiers using bullseye targets, firefight participation was only 5%, but with silhoutte targets, it's over 90%), then you would be advocating that such games, which provide psychological conditioning towards violence should be as controlled by law as much as opium and cocaine.

And I'm the type of person who thinks that, in general, contraband laws are stupid.
