The Right Opinion: The Boogie2988 Problem - How It Hurts His Reputation | TRO
I went to Vidcon. I had a great time met a load of top lads and handsome chaps, and if I did have the chance to meet you then I hope to see you again, and if I didn’t, I will be at conventions in the future hopefully, and it’d be cool to see you there.
I was inside one of halls at Vidcon, as the roaming fees are absolutely insane I had to rely on WiFi, and there were only certain places I could attain it, this hall was one of those places. But it was fairly late, the hall was fairly empty, and I was messaging people to try and ascertain their location so we could go and chill. Then, I saw something, the doors opening, I turn my attention. Lo and behold, there stood Billy The Fridge, and there sat, in his mobility scooter, Boogie2988. They were stopped by another fan and they told them that they were on the way to a meeting, so I decided against intercepting them myself. I am a courteous gentleman.
For the very few who are unaware, Boogie2988 is a US-firstr known for a range of videos. He has this persona, Francis, who is a satirical take on gamers, and then his other set of serious videos which discusses some more deeper and personal topics.
So I saw them, I let them go. I didn’t have anything to speak to them about regardless,I mean what could have possibly unfolded over a few days of banter at Vidcon?
Due to my lack of internet in many places, I paid less attention to the internet, and when I did, it was typically at unsociable hours. So when someone asked me what I thought of the Boogie situation, my response was “Wait, what?”.
Yes, apparently the time I saw him, a situation was actually at the peak of unfolding, one very interesting discussion, which were to result in an eventual apology from the man in question. I’ll explain the basic situation before going into an exploration phase.
The situation that arose wasn’t actually sourced at Vidcon, it was sourced briefly before Vidcon, when Boogie made an appearance on the h3 podcast, you know the podcast, hosted by h3. It’s in the name. But anyhow, he was on there, and the topic of Vidcon 2017 came up, an event I’ll be covering in more depth later. But to summarise, he hosted a panel with Video Game Feminist Anita Sarkeesian, and at the end of the panel he said something that she objected to, and this led to a confrontation and subsequent discussion.
However, during this discussion about this incident Boogie said something that people took objection to. He made a comment about gay marriage that some felt was in poor form, this led to a lot of back and forth between Boogie and these critics, and eventually led to him retracting his original statement.
This inevitably led to accusations that Boogie was fence-sitting, some for the comments he made, and then some for the subsequent retraction. However, this isn’t really new, in fact, Boogie has been in this position times before, even the original situation where he made a video on meeting Anita he received the same accusations. Unfortunately, you can’t please everyone.
However, generally, I do believe that people should stand for what they believe in, and shouldn’t just cater to every side, as although these things often bank on some sort of subjectivity, there is a societal context that may make a certain choice preferable.
So today, what I’m going to be doing is doing my own little personal investigation into whether Boogie can be considered a fence sitter, initiating with a little exploration, discussion and then reapplying it to the situation in question so we can hopefully come to a bit more of a steadfast conclusion on it.
So what I did is I pulled up a selection of Boogie videos over the last few years in which he covered drama, some more contentious than others. To try and decipher if he’s been employing any tactics that we would be able to pin down to fence-sitting, pandering or anything else. Maybe I was pleasantly surprised and found him to be a man of strong principle, just of elaborate reasoning…
I’ve watched a few Boogie videos on drama in my time, but generally I don’t follow him too closely. So although some of these were revisits, most of them were looked at with fresh eyes.
Well let’s discuss it.

Yeah, people on the left really are afraid, that merely "re-education" won't change a fascist mind set. But people on the right definetly don't just think that other's just need education. They scream blood and murder. How did you miss the Charlottesville rally? Just look at the US right now & tell me the MAGAs just want to re-educate? Go ask a trans person how they fell about this...

I have VERY strong opinions, so people being wishy washy just annoys me. I feel like they're just too scared to stand up for themselves and their opinions, and they’re usually the kind of people who aren't prepared to admit when they're wrong, so they just try their hardest to never be wrong, which, of course is impossible, and wrong thinking in itself, because fence sitting obviously is also viewed as wrong by some people. When it comes to human rights, I don't want to have debates or take the long view. I think all people deserve equal human rights immediately. Also, making something legal changes the public's view of that thing. Look at Canada, we've had marriage equality for 15 years and we're finally at a point where it's not a controversial issue in the slightest. In fact, people are starting to reject religious institutions that won't extend marriage equality to all their members. That's not to say there aren't still religious blowhards and bigots, but they're a very small minority, and a big part of that was them not being able to rely on the trite argument that "iT'S ilLeGal" (🙄).

Thanks for mentioning the "if by whiskey" argument. I didn't know about that, it's very interesting. Although, I must admit, I kind of see the point the original statement was making. Whiskey isn't inherently bad, just bad in some people's hands. Maybe we should have enacted a drinking license system, wherein your right to drink can be revoked if you constantly acted the fool and endangered others while drinking. This is a tangent obviously, but I found it very interesting.

While it's important to stand for what you believe in, I believe it's also important to be able to say "I was wrong. I've changed my mind." Changing your mind constantly is bad.

I hope people come back to this video. boogie is trying to lie to and manipulate the internet once again. He has once said that he is more addicted to twitter than FOOD, so that should say something. When boogie made his video talking about the gun incident the FIRST thing he mentions is that he's "trending on twitter"

If every single person waited for the “crazies” to be okay with them nothing would ever happen. Women were threatened if they tried to vote! I’m the end it’s the choice of the person if they are willing to take that risk. If they would like to risk their wellbeing for their beliefs, then that can end up being pretty admirable.

I hope he takes time to really think about why he does what he does. Edit: shit! I love the ending to this! I hadn’t finished the video before making this comment and you addressed it! I appreciate you truly seeing both sides of this! He needs to get to know himself for sure.

I used to really like the guy but the years of just refusing to choose a side and stick by it drove me away. Gaming is my passion, its my favourite pass time and hobby, and I care a great deal about it which also means I care a great deal about the various issues and discussions about it, and when you have someone with a large audience who refuses to stick by their word on these issues, it pisses me off because he could be a great voice for good if he weren't so afraid of argument and unfriendly discussion. It frustrates me that he has this audience but his own personality means they can never actually be educated because you can't take anything the guy says seriously, since by the next day he'll renege on it.

I mean from where he's coming from is a big deal. It DID take decades, probably really starting with the AIDs crisis in the 80s and millions of gay people dying, for people to start to come around to the idea that gay people are 1. human and 2. not really a dangerous enigma to society. I don't think legalizing gay marriage in 1982 would have gone as well as legalizing it in 2015 did. Because by then the point had been hammered in so well all but the most diehard and hateful of people had stopped giving a shit if not supported.

I dislike Boogie's stance on gay marriage because it feels like willingly living in fear and letting others control you without having to even do anything. Like, if hypothetically gay marriage being legalized does lead to an increase in hate crimes, that doesn't tell me that we shouldn't legalize gay marriage. That tells me that we need to find a more effective system to put in place to handle and prevent hate crimes. Bad things are always going to exist, but if you prevent the creation of good things out of fear of the bad things that may emerge because of it, then those good things will never be made, and there will simply be less good things, with the same amount of bad things. I am not sure how well I am articulating myself, but it really makes sense in my head. Like, you can't make the world a better place with inaction, and you can't make the world a better place by trying to make it a worse place (duh) so the only option to make things better is to take positive action. Yes, more challenges or some unforeseen negative consequences may emerge out of that positive action, and it is good to really think things through and try to assess what those bad things could be, and how they may be preventable, but eventually an action does have to be taken.

I'm a bit late to the game here, but i think he just wants people to get along. And i dont think that's a bad trait to have, it just isnt very good if you want to be popular if you want people talking about you and wanting people to hear what you have to say. Let's be honest, people like drama, they like emotion, it's why you dont see a bunch of stoics in media it isnt entertaining. I think he's a good guy, i'd love to hang out with him and hear what he has to say and all that jazz. But i probably wont watch him to be entertained.

But those who said they were personally wronged by having a discrepancy in rights- I’m sorry for you, but that’s your fight- I’m not getting involved” It definitely reads as someone who couldn’t care less whether or not gay people had the right to marriage, and by extension other legal benefits to marriage such as visiting their partner in the ICU, and as someone who would rather leave the educating and fighting to other people. If you’re going to be this passive fence sitter- then fuck off and don’t even insert yourself into the discussion if you’re just going to be hypocritical in the same breath.

Boogie saying “we’re going to have backlash” when it comes to passing gay marriage equality sounds suspiciously like a lot of anti-civil rights rhetoric many more “politically correct” yet delusional white people had in the 1960’s when we were passing the civil rights laws. Imagine saying “oh let’s try in a couple decades and slowly change people’s minds” during the civil rights era when a significant portion of people lacked rights to even use the front door of restaurants. But I bet the fact that it took 100+ years for civil rights to pass following the civil war- I’m sure Boogie would argue that this is evidence for “methodically changing people’s perceptions and opinions”. I’m sorry, but people shouldn’t wait hundreds of years to be afforded basic rights when it was obvious we could get it done now. He’s so afraid about hearing a small minority opinion that he’s willing to push off the rights that the vast majority of people are fine with having or even fighting to have. The stupid rhetoric of “let’s make it the next generation’s problem” is such a problematic mindset. Who cares if you upset a few of the older generations? Majority of people who are resistant to progression tends to be the older generation, but they still instill their values and ideals onto some of the newer generation. Wanting to appease everyone, or at least who had some value in society, is the primary reason why it took over one hundred years for civil rights to pass. And there are still people today who think black people and other minorities shouldn’t be afforded these rights. So it’s still even more moronic to think that there will ever be a right time to pass equal rights acts. You’re going to upset someone when a law passes. That is an inevitability. It should upset at least someone- because if it doesn’t that means there is a flaw in the legalese of the laws terms. We have a yay-nay party, but if everyone is happy with the law, it shows that people are interpreting it differently dependent on political leaning and rights can be mitigated or exploited as a result. If there is no initiative or coherent understanding of our legal future, no one will make that initial precedent of changing or fighting for someone’s rights. It’s just blissfully ignorant of how it actually affects people and he’s obviously speaking from a point of privilege and ignorance.

This video could have gone on longer and it did not paint the full picture of the issues with Boogie. The fence sitting was one thing, his bigger issues stacked when he started detracting and dismissing criticism about his weight, which he constantly makes excuses for eating habits. He also makes passive aggressive attacks towards accusations against him, regardless of validity which ended up shedding light on how his behavior on camera was probably a facade he put on, where there are several videos of him cursing and venting towards the audience out of frustration over his inability to cover his excuses about his weight and online behavior. He really riled up the online community when he turned Etika's suicide into a sort of "self promoting" pity party. You really should expand on this. There's a LOT more then just his fence sitting that got people upset

I've really never understood why or how people get so sycophantic about YT personalities that they'll brigade and downvote-boycott any videos that challenge the idolized, perfect mental image they have of someone. Grow the fuck up.

I don't think you understand the full range of right wing ideology very well. I am neither right or left, ideologically. I think there are sound conclusions as well as foolish misunderstandings expressed across the entire ideological spectrum. But your description of conservative thinking was incredibly shallow.

Actually, the "if by whiskey" speech, if you consider carefully, is anything but pandering. It's a brilliant piece of satirical rhetoric, and it says something very profound about the nature of public controversy.

I thought someone with the name "The Right Opinion" would be really stuck up and pretentious, but you're actually the most level-headed and sensible commentary channel I've ever seen. You're far more considerate of all opinions and evidence than any of the others, and your takes on any situation always avoid putting things in broad terms and blanket statements. Maybe there are no right opinions, but you've shown me that there's a right way to form an opinion. Also, great soundtrack for this video. Just felt like I watched a really good anime or something.

TRO and D'Angelo Wallace are pretty similar in that way. You ought to check out his channel if you haven't, already.

Boogie is in the center of a society that has been conditioned from birth to believe things are black and white. People don't seem to realize that both sides or an argument can be utterly wrong.

Actually, the if-by-whiskey argument makes sense if you think about it and doesn't deserve the cringe label you attach to it. I read the wiki site you used for demonstration, and what I gather from what the lawmake said is that good or bad are dependent on how you view and use things. He provided both the negative and the positive outlooks on whiskey, which displayed that the responsiblity of the consumer is what the ultimate verdict hinges on, rather than an inherant good or bad. Applying either label without hearing opposing views, knowing the personal stories, and the individuals character would, in my opinion, be the real crime. Being of the mindset that you can't call something good or bad without looking at it through a looking glass made out of consideration and understanding is definetly a point you can defend, and in my opinion you should do so. You said it yourself - it's more about the presentation rather than the points. Present it as evil, and confirmation bias will attract people who agree. Present it as good, the same thing happens. Because of this, neither side is truly comprehensive. Some could argue that you are a twat stuck up your own ass, and some could argue you are a wise man who does gods work. I know that I enjoy your content, and that's likely not going to change, but I would still hear opposing opinions for the sake of understanding people better. I believe that in the end, this is what the lawman wanted to say. Judge based on comprehension, not confirmation bias and presentations that are skewed in the same direction that your own feelings and opinions are.
