After reading through this thread and basically having the question answered for me, I still have to ask:

What the fuck happened to this guy?

All I remember is that he suddenly disappeared from Steven Crowder's show, and then I found his channel about a month later and couldn't believe this was the same person.
it seems like he got rewarded for telling everyone what he really thinks about controversial issues, and that coincided with an emerging or worsening mental disorder exasperated by internet attention. He has concluded that he is a genius who figures out the correct take on an issue with minimal research, and started looking into other "controversies" with his spare time to try and replicate the success of the first grift. If I had to guess what is wrong with him mentally I would say bipolar, although schizophrenia isn't off the table and can creep up slowly. Taking turpentine and pissing off his wife by burning books are both troubling developments, even from a hardcore conspiracy theorist.

It's really astounding how many people this man has created drama with
That's why he's such a good addition to the forum, and the only reason I can think of as to why the thread isn't bigger is that nobody wants to actually watch his streams.
We're all counting down the days until he betrays Vox Day, though.

Yeah I think if he didn't aimlessly ramble in his back yard for hours and hours every day more people would care. There's a LOT of shit you have to parse through to get any good content.

And the Vox betrayal HAS to be on the horizon. He's betrayed everyone he's looked up to so far, why would he stop now when he's at his craziest?

I hate having to rely on ROTC for takes on his streams, I suspect there has to be a lot of insane shit in there but I guess the issue is since he's so fringe he's been kicked off all mainstream platforms so he can't really cause any drama. He doesn't even have social media as far as I know, he's really just an insane asshole who lives off the grid which makes him dangerously close to becoming ironically funny.

I can't watch Owens videos, I just read the posts here. Its too sad for me to watch a man go insane. Owen really should be in mental hospital, he is a danger to himself and his family. :(

I rely on these two channels for Big Bear updates.

Despite his obvious chemical imbalances, his takes about Stephen Crowder and how he runs his mug club and the way he treats people are a fun listen.
His willingness to out the inner workings of those he's been affiliated with after they dumped him because they realized he's a burden is precisely what makes him an asshole. If Crowder hadn't considered him a liability and cut ties, would the big bear have come out and exposed Crowders practices? I highly doubt it. Big bear is exactly the same sort of shallow, opportunistic leech as any other person willing to go out to Hollywood and supplicate to the golden cow. It's who he is. And he hates himself for it. At this point I'm convinced that his streams are his means of coping. He craves the validation the attention gives him and always has. That's why he strives so hard to convince his cvlt in his spittle laden tirades that he doesn't give a fuck and doesn't need anybody. Textbook overcompensation.

Yeah back when he had Eric Nimmer around as his token darkie. Dude got busted for stolen valor and disappeared from the face of the Earth.
And holy fuck, the "Bears" are so fucking broken that Blowin' can just abuse them and doesn't even have to lovebomb them like narcs normally do, they just crawl back on their own.

Anyone who goes to the trouble of naming themselves after a military award is all but guaranteed to be Exceptional Individual.

Skipping over the ethnography of military culture I wanted to write, let me just say that the Bronze Star Medal (BSM) is an award that most career Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO) and Officers in the Army and Air Force can expect to be awarded at some point and probably multiple times. The BSM was originally conceived as an award for acts of valor in combat during WW2, but was eventually authorized to be awarded for meritorious service in non-combat and during my multiple deployments with the Army saw it offered as a blanket award for every NCO and Officer in certain leadership positions, despite the majority never being involved with anything to do with any sort of combat.

The BSM is still awarded for acts of valor in combat (even U.S. civilians serving alongside service members can be awarded the BSM for such a purpose) but the medal comes with a "V-device" which is basically a little letter V attached to the ribbon. This is to signal to everyone that the award was given for the purposes of distinguishing valorous acts while engaged with the enemy and is usually accompanied with a Purple Heart. It is pretty much a sign that shit went wrong and people either died or were grievously injured and someone did something extraordinary to stop the situation from getting worse. It is not an uncommon occurrence for this to be awarded postmortem.

So there a basically three options as to why a guy might name himself "Bronze Star"-Anything.; (i) They are naming themselves after a routine career milestone (Masters-of-Business Administration Bear), (ii) Naming one's self after an award received for what was probably the worst day of their life, or (iii) This is another case of stolen valor where the grifter's understanding of military awards is shallow and entirely predicated on media depictions.

Any option more or less indicates a level of narcissism that approaches the level of personality disorder. Which explains their attraction to Owen Benjamin TBH.

Right, but you have to admit the way Crowder's entire team split at once was strange. There's obviously more to why Sven and Notgayjared (which must be an obnoxious nickname to be given by a closeted faggot) left together. Also, Sven posted a bear emoji in which Notgayjared liked on Twitter leading credence to what Owen Benjamin said. Non-disclosure contracts are a bitch and it's clear there's more to the story that Crowder doesn't want out. Honestly though his rants on Crowder are about the extent I've watched of any of his backyard streams, I was just hoping there's was more information on that rabbit hole.

Didn't see it post but some of the guys from r/owenbenjamin did another amateur doc on big tard bear:

Owen Benjamin: Debased and Cringe Pilled

I found the anonymized interview with the guy at the 42:00 mark interesting, apparently Benjamin forcibly made out with him. This is immediately followed by a clip I didn't know about from Sam Seder's show where a caller relates a story about Owen punching him because he tried to calm an argument between a friend of his and Benjamin.

The barely suppressed cocklust as well as his violent tendencies (member his wife appearing with a black eye? member him beating his dog on live stream?) combined with his delusions are not going to end well.

In which Owen Benjamin praises Aztec sacrificial rituals as a means to kill the gamma reddit trolls and proclaims that the cells of aborted babies are placed into our food.
I could see this working as a comedy bit - wanting to hear the chief's side of the story regarding human sacrifice - but that's why Owen is so weird: this is just a thing he is arguing for logically. Like Louis CK's "of course, but maybe" bit but it's just a straight-faced defense of slavery.

Is he still at the stage where he wants to have “This is just performance art!” as plausible deniability? Or does he truly give no fucks? I can’t sit through hundreds of hours of streams like this to find out, so would appreciate any insights. TIA.
