/r/BreadTube - The Unofficial ContraPoints Dickriders Club and the culture / drama surrounding the community.

RichardMongler

kiwifarms.net
A small hint to anyone interested in archiving juicy threads: use old.reddit.com instead of www.reddit.com. archive.li will back up the entire thread.

In the tradition of left-wing subreddits like /r/LateStageCapitalism and /r/ShitLiberalsSay along with anti-anti-SJWs comes /r/BreadTube (a).
706315


The website breadtube.tv (a) is also apparently associated with this little group.

From the subreddit's description, /r/BreadTube started out as a fanclub for left-wing YouTube content creators that gradually grew into its own discussion space for politics, the latest cultural trends and other topics associated with leftism. The group takes its name from Peter Kropotkin's book "The Conquest of Bread". They've gained a relatively small but appreciable following at 40.3k 41k 43.1k 48.5k 57k 66.5k+ subs (and they don't stop coming), eclipsing /r/ShitLiberalsSay by almost 26k.

As the subtitle implies, all of them absolutely love ContraPoints and ride his dick at almost every opportunity. There is some dissent, but rest assured, it is decidedly in the minority. It would be an exhausting task to list every solitary thread where /r/BreadTube collectively jizzes over Nyk's latest video, but to keep things brief, here's a small sample:
A typical discussion starts much like this thread about the failures of democracies in western countries (a, old). The ominous last line in the OP strongly suggests violent revolution (or direct action, as they like to say) isn't off the table for some of them:
706362


As to the userbase of this subreddit, an enlightening post came from a user who explains his transition from anti-SJW to BreadTuber (a, old):
Meat_Wagon said:
I said this in r/bomberguy but it fits here as well,

Truth be told I used to be one of those people.. I used to watch a TON of anti-SJW YouTuber (Sargon,Bearing,Hunter Avelone) and I just nod my head to everything they said. I honestly believed that pink haired women on tumbler who only had 5 followers was gonna be the fall of civilization. The only reason why I got out of it is because these dipshits talked about the same fucking thing over and over and over and over again and I got bored, and l eventually lost interest and distanced myself away from it. I eventually grew out of it by looking at other much more interesting topics and I eventually found HBomb and Shawn and they showed me the true nature of these “Anti SJW” type..
So yeah.. thanks guys and in a way.. thank you “Skeptics” for being so dull and uninteresting that you literally bored me out of it ..

These people rely on ignorance, they use fancy euphemisms like “white identity” or “race realism” to trick people in to falling to they’re believes. The only way to combat this is education and teaching people (without talking down at them) that this shit is wrong and extremely dangerous. Like previously stated, these dip shits rely on ignorance and if we remove that ignorance they got nothing.

706309
It seems a decent swath of these users were holdovers from Gamergate that gradually got bored and switched sides either from fatigue of anti-SJW monotony or simply because they weren't so secure in their own beliefs. What's more interesting is that the OP links to a video whose uploader claimed he "learned to be racist" from the alt-right. Tellingly, OP also calls the alt-right a deathcult.

Speaking of Gamergate, here's a particularly painful thread (a, old) where they react to an admittedly cringeworthy thread about Three Arrows on /pol/, although most of the responses in the /pol/ thread strongly suggest /pol/acks simply don't care. Not that any of it matters to /r/BreadTube who gleefully sneer at the /pol/ OP, but somehow, Gamergate gets brought into this discussion:
706383

706384

706385

In another thread, we learn exactly why right-wingers are so easy to radicalize (a, old) and why it's necessary to confront your privilege to be a good leftist:
706377


706378
706379

As you would expect from these subreddits, they collectively HATE Pewdiepie (a, old) and blame him for radicalizing kids into becoming right-wing. This thread was reopened in light of the Christchurch mosque shooting:
706344

A stir happened in thread (a, old) about Riley Dennis's video "Your Preferences Are Discriminatory":
706335

706334

706333

Things got pretty spicy in a discussion titled "What the fuck is happening /r/ContraPoints" (a, old). Special thanks to @Nykysnottrans for bringing me up to speed on the adjacent subreddits involved in this shitshow. Those interested can read his take on the matter here.

Because the OP was deleted, here's a back up to some of the comments that were posted in response to the drama. This whole fucking drama started because Merari, the moderator of /r/ContraPoints and over 200 other subs, allows pictures of police dogs to be posted in a sub with pictures of animals, /r/Eyebleach. Nyk's far left fans hate anything associated with cops including cop dogs: "I don't understand why r/Eyebleach doesn't just ban pictures of police dogs.". These people hate cops so intensely that they are triggered at the mere image of a police dog. Nyk's cult rebelled against Merari allowing pictures of cop dogs to be posted demanding that Nyk boot him off the /r/ContraPoints sub, when Nyk is not actively involved with his sub on reddit and Merari was actually the one who originally started and ran the sub:
*users of leftist podcast subreddit /r/chapotraphouse post police dog abuse statistics in every police dog post in /r/dogswithjobs
*mods of /r/dogswithjobs ban /r/chapotraphouse users from every sub they moderate, which includes /r/contrapoints
https://twitter.com/Bary0nyx/status/1097543958161473536

Just a little club starring T_Dumbsford, awkwardtheturtle, Merari01, and siouxsie_siouxv2 meant to harass and defame users who don't obey them. Remember targeted harassment is a-okay as long as you're a career power mod and work as slave labor for the ad…

No, /r/contrapoints moderators are not considering banning CTH users via bots. That is a lie. The /r/contrapoints moderators have repeatedly, explicitly, pointedly stated that they are not banning CTH users for posting in CTH, neither manually nor by bot.
https://twitter.com/PennyOaken/status/1097692214166208514
One of the batshit troons from /r/LateStageGenderBinary was a mod on /r/ContraPoints but he left the sub as a result of the cop dog drama to form his own breakaway sub, /r/ContraPoints2. Because having /r/ContraPoints and /r/BreadTube was still not enough, there had to be yet a third sub.

Anyway, here's some more screenshots from the whole affair:

I’m so sick of Gamergate. Both sides of it. Just stfu already.
Same. That's why I supported that ExclusivelyGames thing. idgaf anymore if the dev is liberal or democrat or republican,tbh. we all know that politics succs and doesn't care about people, so why hating each other for that? let's all learn to live with all of our differences, no?

Disappointed OP didn't put in the recent kerfuffle where they whiteknighted Pedantic Romantic after she attacked Dimitri Monroe for disagreeing with her traps video

Easily one of the worst threads on the sub,
No idea who either of those people are, so feel free to comment on stuff beyond my purview. Not even that up to date on gaming culture, so feel free to clue me in there, too.

Speaking of gaming, here they are lapping up Destiny's latest lecture about why edgy jokes are bad (a, old). Of course, when THEY joke about violence, it's just jokes, but don't you dare be right of center and make edgy jokes. Also, take a gander at their hot takes on socioeconomics in that very thread:
706634

706635

706639

And speaking of the right-wing and edgy humor, don't you dare use imageboards to be edgy (a, old):
706640

On one hand, they appreciate mainstream media coverage of their favorite content creators (a, old), but they are still very ambivalent when it's Forbes doing it:

Nyk/ContraPoints is getting SRS soon so it's understandable, they're obviously in a hurry making use of every opportunity for a ride before he permanently gets rid of the dick forever.

Things got pretty spicy in a discussion titled "What the fuck is happening /r/ContraPoints" (a). It seems the OP was deleted, but apparently, the discussion involves Chapo Trap House and some users getting banned from other subreddits for opinions regarding the police
I posted about this ordeal in the ContraPoints thread. A lot was nuked, but here's a back up to some of the comments that were posted in response to the drama. The fact is that reddit already knows that Nyk's fans are the worst of the worst. Having one sub about ContraPoints is not enough, no, they need another to worship him even more.

Damn, that's spicy. I know absolutely nothing about any of these adjacent subreddits, so any/all details involving drama peripherally related to /r/BreadTube would be greatly appreciated.

I'll be sure to update the OP.

Damn, that's spicy.
Here is my post about the cop dog drama from the ContraPoints thread. You should also look into this group mentioned in my post, "The League of Extraordinary Trolls". They take over obscure or abandoned subs on reddit and turn them into SJW subs. That's how Merari ended up being the powermod of 200+ subs.

2) These people just sound like whiny children

3) So glad I'm not on Reddit.

Oh speaking of which one of the people made a video about the pewdiepie thing claiming basically if you like memes it will lead you into becoming a white supremacist aka the same argument that video games causes violence.

Sadder still people are agreeing with it because the guy uses big words that sound smart (even though nothing he says has much scientific backing) and surprise used contrapoints as a reference.

Youtube just recommended this video to me.
The comment section is fucking terrifying.

That's why I call everyone who disagree with me nazi.

One of their traditions is to hold a weekly free talk thread (a, old) where they can discuss anything:
708347


Some responses of note listed below.
  • smach650 feels despair because the user can't openly discuss politics with the family and thus feels weak:
    708349
  • One member gives his take on Gamergate (they just won't let it die, will they?):
    708353
  • Some salt about the Mueller report:
    708359
  • Some disdain for liberals for failing to be enlightened enough as them:
    708362
  • And lastly, more whining about Pewdiepie. One presumably right-wing user tries to be rational and explain that the Pewds isn't racist, but the community just isn't having it:
    708363
Here's another thread on veganism (a, old). The discussion there is mostly dry and consistent with most leftist perspectives on the subject. Nothing too hot, but some posts of note below:
708397



708398



708399



708400

I find it interesting how this circle has created their own little closed circle where they all cite each other. I know Contrapoints cited the Pendantic Romantic’s awful video on traps for her own video leading to both videos having the same misinformation

Disappointed OP didn't put in the recent kerfuffle where they whiteknighted Pedantic Romantic after she attacked Dimitri Monroe for disagreeing with her traps video

Easily one of the worst threads on the sub,
I feel like this comment sums up everything about bread tube:
708444

A bunch of self righteous puesdo intellectuals criticize people for doing things that do (and sometimes even worse) and when cornered on this they just reee over bigotry and fascism

It would be intensely boring if I only capped their intellectual circlejerks (like I've been doing, sadly), but their internecine squabbles and petty drama from all people they follow seems promising. It'll probably be awhile before anything spicy like the /r/ContraPoints police dog drama crops up, but they sure can't take dissent and seem quick to turn on each other.

Focus on the drama. The political circlejerking isn't interesting. Identify some notable and notorious users.
I don't expect documenting all the drama to be an easy task, but I can highlight some of the users and their weird activity on Reddit.

/r/BreadTube is moderated by otalp (stylized as /u/----otalp----) who's very active in /r/ChapoTrapHouse, /r/LateStageCapitalism, /r/chomsky, /r/Socialism and /r/Anarchism along with some other larger or lesser known subreddits. He also moderates /r/bread_irl (a) which is /r/BreadTube's meme page.

His posting habits vary between crossposting articles, sharing shitty memes, bitching about the police and strawmanning anyone who disagrees with him. Judging by his activity in soccer subreddits, he's apparently from England. And, in typical trendy lefty fashion, he's a Mac fag based on his posts in /r/Apple.

Some choice posts below.
  • Fuck tha police:
    708990
  • Strawmanning his enemies:
    709095
  • Shitty memes:
    709096
    709097
    709098
    709099
    709100
In continuation from the jerkop drama addressed by @Nykysnottrans, some interesting drama includes the user MeMaiWaifu (a) whining s/he got banned from /r/Eyebleach and /r/ContraPoints (a, old) as well as /r/Fuckthealtright. The user subsequently capped shit related to it here. Also in that thread is MeMaiWaifu whining about /r/fatlogic, but best of all is when user PraiseBeToScience calls the whiny little bitch out:
709030

709032

709031

Of note, MeMaiWaifu frequently haunts /r/ChapoTrapHouse (and /r/chapotraphouse2), /r/FullCommunism and other assorted leftist subreddits as well as /r/lgbt. Despite whining about getting banned for inflammatory rhetoric, this user still posts on /r/ChapoTrapHouse with the byline, "If you're not on some watchlist, you're doing it wrong."

Like otalp, MeMaiWaifu loves shitty memes. Some choice posts below:
