Owen Benjamin is a stand-up comedian known for his Bill Hicks-like edgy humor. The 38-year-old former Hollywood actor uses politically incorrect language and, in the past, has entered into the culture wars. He made the circuit on Alt-Right social media, where he has a large following, and made numerous appearances on Alex Jones’ shows.
Benjamin only got on my radar about a week ago when he railed on Alex Jones and Joe Rogan for being fakes and agents. That’s not too far removed from our view on the matter.
Some new level of red-pilling seems to have happened more recently that has transformed Benjamin into a raging bear. “Bear” is the term he uses to describe himself.
If you watch his YouTube videos posted during the last month or so, you can see the transformation. It reminds me of myself back in 2013 when I first became aware of the truth of 911 and started down other rabbit holes. I was extremely angry. Of course, I’m still angry about it, but I’ve had a half decade to get acclimated and appraise. I’ve turned this into a long-term, more-patient, “3 yards and a cloud dust” process.
Unlike me, Owen has a large audience and is swinging for the fences — perhaps while he still can. He has 245,000 subscribers on his demonetized YouTube channel. Notably, he fiercely addresses the JQ in a manner rarely seen from public figures, who typically cower. This short clip (note obligatory YT content warning) on Jewish “comedy” will give you a flavor of this at a more fundamental low-hanging-fruit level.
Unfortunately, in some of his live streams, which go on for hours, he consumes Corona beer nonstop and can really getting flying. Yes, in the real world, soldiers are human, and we are not walking in his shoes. He is fearless, at least on the surface. Clearly, the nasty usual suspects have him in their sights, and he’s feeling the pressure.
So the question on the minds of those following this: Are we watching a train wreck, or will Benjamin be a sustainable force and wake up large numbers of normies and pajama people? It could go either way, but I believe he’s a force to reckon with and am quite sympathetic. He may end up truly opening up the Overton Window.
The first question about Benjamin, despite his warts : Is he genuine? I spent an entire evening watching his videos. He did a good one with Dr. E. Michael Jones here.
I still had some lingering doubts until I came across this segment of a heartfelt Owen talking about a friend who was ultimately a casualty of the war in Afghanistan. He specifically and soberly directs his ire and disdain at the extremely over-exposed and nasty Alt-Right Jewish chicken hawk and warmonger Ben Shapiro. This is no act or performance. Owen absolutely nails the “new” zeitgeist in a way that can’t be faked.
Watch until minute 02:25:30. Focus around 02:17:30 to 02:19:30, if you doubt his authenticity. Is the death of his buddy what prompted Benjamin to connect the rest of the dots and take off the gloves?
This is precisely my own feeling, and I have been waiting a long time for someone with some reach is encapsulate it. What I’m concerned about now is that Benjamin will get the same treatment as James Forrestal, Ezra Pound and many others. Both of these men had a strong support system but were still done in. Owen seems surrounded by snakes. He will need a support network.
