I already see several leftist clusters on YouTube.This, and the major schism if ever one was to emerge is the identity vs class one. This is especially apparent from the Force the Vote momentum pushed for by Jimmy Dore. Instead of all coming together to lobby for the persumed goal of fighting for universal health care in America, you had the Vaush-types tone policing, or sperging about class reductionism. It's clear that some of them would really like to hold their progressive politicians accountable by demanding to see results, while the others would be content of their leaders hopped on their stream for platitudes and clicks.
It's not so much about being trans, but about how radically individualistic trans youtube is. Hardcore leftists, no matter how supporting of trans people, won't see with good eyes these synthetic tesselations of the working class. Trans members of the community will alienate themselves. They enjoy the sympathy of the left, but for them any gains in social justice starts and ends with how available treatments for their transitions are. Again: radical individualism and a solipsistic approach to politics.I doubt there will be one schism; I think there will be numerous splits. ‘The left’ is too fractured already for there to only be two camps. Furthermore, since YouTube leftists are explicitly pro-trans, there is little reason for trans lefties to segregate themselves.
Oh look a fag.Stop commenting on stuff you have no idea about.
Q-Anon shit has never been popular within any alt-right communities and was openly mocked by almost every popular """alt-right""" figure. With some suggesting that the whole thing was orchestrated by Trump campaign to create popular zealous support, or something like that.
And if recent years have showed us anything, it's that people overall don't understand right-wing satire, treating everything as a secret plan to dominate the internet, not the opposite.
Besides that, 'alt-right' doesn't really exists, because it pretty much dissolved after Charlottesville.
People that were involved within those circles have started calling themselves 'Dissident Right' and have been mostly opposed to MAGA/Trump stuff (some though were larping on Twitter after elections, hoping that "Trump crosses the Rubikon"). DR is also currently dissolving, as people within it find crucial issues with each others worldviews (pagans vs christians, nazi larpers vs sane people etc.) with people focusing on IRL stuff, such as community organization.
Trans youtubers tend to focus on themselves, that much is true, but that is less of a schism and more of them going away to play in their own sandpit. ‘Schism’ implies some kind of strong opposition, and I do not see it happening.It's not so much about being trans, but about how radically individualistic trans youtube is. Hardcore leftists, no matter how supporting of trans people, won't see with good eyes these synthetic tesselations of the working class. Trans members of the community will alienate themselves. They enjoy the sympathy of the left, but for them any gains in social justice starts and ends with how available treatments for their transitions are. Again: radical individualism and a solipsistic approach to politics.
In the end, no matter how class conscious trans youtube is; those who could be grouped there only want to talk about themselves and their experiences, transness being an excuse for that. When you behave in this manner your allies end up resenting you.
EDIT: I read your ssecond post, and I think you are right. There is a split, although they are not openly hostile with one-another (Hakim vs Vaush was as far as it got). :power level: Red Scare is one of my gilty pleasures.
HahahahahaahahahahI think Xanderhal's Youtube career could be coming to an end soon, he has lost 300 subs in the last couple weeks alone. Futhermore, he is now averging only a couple hundred viewers on his poltics stream, and when you contrast that with this time a year ago, he was getting a thousand viewers on average, his viewership has been diwndling over time.
He is most likley having money issues as well. I remeber him saying in the Lauren Southern debate stream that he had to ask Demon Mama for 50$ because he didnt have enough money for food due to only having 10$ in his bank account. Dont have the exact time stamp he said that, but it was early in the stream so it shouldnt be to hard to find.
The money problems must be really bad because in the last month he has made a 6500$ stream goal to dress as anime girl, this goal ends in a couple weeks and hes no where close to his goal.

I was under the impression that his parents always thought being a streamer was pathetic and he should get a real jobWow that's pretty pathetic. I wonder what his parents would think. Also just move back to your parents house? Florida isn't hell.
Is even more insulting they keep peddling it when their ways of proving it are dubious, to say the least, but you can confirm there exists an "SJW" pipeline.Jesus fucking Christ. These faggots won't shut up about the "anti-sjw altright pipeline".
I already see several leftist clusters on YouTube.
One is the big video-essayists, who can also be considered ‘the original BreadTube’: Contrapoints, Philosophy Tube, HBomberguy, and others along those lines. These channels are gargantuan and are watched by normies, and this is in part thanks to not being dedicated to shilling anti-capitalism so blatantly. Some of them might not even be anti-capitalist; I seem to recall Contrapoints saying she is not sold on it.
An adjacent group consists of smaller video essayists who usually do media critique. They are similar to the previous group in everything but audience size. Innuendo Studios, Jack Saint, and Maggie Mae Fish would be examples.
Another cluster is the debate bros: Destiny, Vaush, SDL, Xanderhal, Demon Mama, Dylan Burns, and the like. They are represented mainly on Twitch, and they range from anarchists to social democrats. These people tend to alienate everybody who is not a debate bro like them because their way of engaging is inherently hostile.
Yet another cluster I cannot pin down exactly. They are some combination of non-Anglos, theory nerds, and Marxist-Leninists: Hakim, Yugopnik, The Finnish Bolshevik, Luna Oi, NonCompete, BadEmpanada, Xexizy, and Anarchopac. This is the group that is most concerned with class issues.
There is also a smaller and disjointed kind of r/stupidpol medley: Caleb Maupin, Infrared, Peter Coffin. Barely anybody likes or watches them. It remains to be seen if this company grows either in members or in views.
Then there are the hyperwoke: EssenceOfThought, ALeviCalledBird, Lily Simpson, and I cannot recall any more. This is the group most concerned with trans and disability issues. I do not ever see them growing big or increasing in numbers because these people are zealots with negative charisma.
There are also two groups that do not interact much with the rest because they are not truly ‘of YouTube’: dirtbag leftist podcasters and the old radio hosts. Chapo Trap House, Cum Town, and Red Scare would be examples of the former; The Majority Report, The Jimmy Dore Show, and The David Pakman Show would be examples of the latter.
There are other people who are widely enjoyed online but are not themselves YouTubers™: Krystal Ball from Rising, Ben Burgis, Nathan J. Robinson, Richard Wolff, Zizek, and the like. Kyle Kulinski started on YouTube, but his content is more like that of radio hosts, and so I tend to also consider him as belonging to this group.
I thought ‘Krystal Ball’ was not her birth name, but it is. Incredible.
Have I covered everybody? Are there any more groups? I believe the leftist sphere of YouTube will continue to be differentiated among these lines. And these lines make sense to me, and they separate people peddling quite different content.
P. S. There are also some old-school channels I did not bother to bring up because nobody cares about them: Kristi Winters, Kevin Logan, Milo Stewart, Riley J. Dennis, and the like. There are also channels covering social issues with a leftie bent, like channels about African-American, women’s, or LGBTQ issues, but I would struggle to describe them as ‘the leftie YouTube’.
He was complaining he was too poor for a/c in Florida. Somehow Mersh lives in Florida and adapts to only going out at night like the gay vampire that he is. I’m sure Alex could do the same.Wow that's pretty pathetic. I wonder what his parents would think. Also just move back to your parents house? Florida isn't hell.
A poor one. And I hate nick and do think he’s a fucking racist but that was shit.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eRoYhTQDuo&t=257s
Thought slime makes a video on Nick Fuentes
Honestly this is a good optics strategy. Just debate all the literal retards on the left to make the left look bad. Big brain on Lauren there.
Tom Nicholas' more recent uploads seem to be trying to ape the Contra/PT/Hbomberguy formula, i.e. long-from diatribes on a certain subject where the speaker sits or stands in front of a camera with a set and/or a costume. Right now though he's got about 194k subs so he's not quite at the popularity level of the big three at the moment.I must say, there are leftist channels that do not neatly fit in my abovementioned categorisation scheme. Off the top of my head: Thought Slime, Radical Reviewer, verilybitchie, Tom Nicholas, Unlearning Economics, Beau of the Fifth Column, Some More News, Mexie, and RE-EDUCATION. Most of these occupy a ‘should have had a rantsona’ box in my mind, I suppose.
Was he referring to his parents house? If so that is total bullshit. His parents live in a gated community and have a fucking indoor pool. I have hard time believing they don't have central air.He was complaining he was too poor for a/c in Florida.
