on one hand, any champion of 2A gets a kudos from me

on the other hand, it's weird when new dudes defend the purity of ARFCOM, just never seems genuine

on the third hand, I'm not gonna watch all his videos to find out if he's a raging lefty commie or just a bit left of me

on the forth hand, taxation is theft, commies aren't people, Fuck soup bitches, and thicc ass is where its at.

Wow.

I had no idea there was so much animosity towards Blue Falcon. I enjoy his videos I watch, but I am really not a YouTube guy.

If ya’ll hate them so much, why don’t you approach some YouTubers you like to make content for the page. Find out how much it’s going to cost and than talk to site staff about it.

Or maybe since you claim you don’t know you should read the thread instead of acting the way you are.

The previous thread on this guy covered it a bit. The guy makes bad videos and has previously been banned. What more do you need to know?

I watched two to make sure it wasn’t some kind of weird bad day video take. It wasn’t. It’s him.  He gives off a very strange vibe and the powers that be dug their heels in like petulant children and said, “we’re sticking with him, fuck your opinions.” Very strange.

Arfcom is a joke to the rest of the gun world and if you take their YouTube channel into consideration I totally understand why.

TFBtv should be considered a baseline of excellent YT gun content, and then compare that to some fat fucking retard making reddit NPC faces at everything.

I would say "it's embarrassing" but I guess if the owners don't care about their image why should I? Their industry sponsor checks keep rolling in so I guess it hasn't hurt business.

Ah yes, GD. Where "Lefty" means literally anything but someone who perceives society as irreparably structured as a powerful group of elites versus a mass of oppressed workers and therefore requires a revolution to usher in a promised glorious future. No, people who believe that are usually the ones calling everyone else a "Lefty."

I read the thread, did you? The entire premise that the OP laid out is that the ARFCOM news guy is a leftist. Absolutely no evidence provided at all. I get that there's history and that people don't like the style of his videos. How does that make him a leftist? Seems like a pro 2A guy to me. Matt Hoover is a pro 2A guy that rubs a lot of folks wrong. No reason to start a thread accusing him of being a leftist.

I must agree. Hate to pile on, but I watched 1 and can't watch them anymore at all. It is truly disappointing that such a huge site, with a huge presence and following, has this guy for the YouTube face.
Link Posted: 9/22/2022 10:04:32 AM EDT

The guy is stuck in the internet from 20 years ago. I made a thread about him a while ago and the people with "seniority" (accounts older than mine with higher post counts ) told me that he "loves us".

Fact of the matter is his cringe content is awful, and his interactions with others in the industry is friggen weird. I think his interactions with the Griffin Armament from Shot Show (IIRC) really show exactly why he shouldn't be the "Face of ARFCOM".

Thats my experience as well. Bring up arfcom at any training class and its always the same general reaction.

I chalk that up to most people thinking GD is arfcom. Which makes them right, it is kind of retarded but thats what makes it funny which is why I stick around and as weird as it can get its still way better than reddit.

As a guy who makes content for a living I don't like to shit on others who do as well. I have learned though that it is a good idea to take valid criticism and learn from it.

i dont know/remember who bluefalcon was or who he is now.  Or who runs the arfcom YT channel or that arfcom even had a YT channel until just now.
So I took a gander at the main page and saw the videos and immediately clicked away.

Ive never been embarrassed to be associated with arfcom until now.
