Harry Brewis, better known as hbomberguy or Harris Bomberguy,[note 1] is a YouTube talker who identifies as a libertarian socialist. Brewis is known for his videos ridiculing right-wing, anti-feminist, and/or bigoted YouTubers, particularly prominent figureheads of the Gamergate, uh, "movement."
Brewis describes himself as an atheist who has no investment in atheism:
There are some stances that require no investment, and are simply words to describe your stance on the issues. I have no investment in atheism, even though I am one.
Brewis' bread and butter is mocking the anti-feminist "skeptic" community on YouTube:
AuriniAruni[note 2] and Jordan Owen, creators of the "The Sarkeesian Effect"
- Rocking Mr. E, The Golden One, Sargon of Akkad
- JonTron: Mostly Tweets, video planned.
Although Brewis' YouTube content focuses on debunking others, his off-YouTube content is substantially more political. For example, on Ask.FM he wrote:
I'm a very far left socialist type with a reverence for the actual philosophers of the communist movement and their writings. While I'm often unsure what to label myself, what I want is a version of capitalism that actually works sustainably, and doesn't simply lurch from crisis to crisis while inflicting unethical labor on places that we don't think about as 'our problem' - working conditions rise in the west because we exported the dirtier, more shitty jobs elsewhere. Whether or not a 'version' of capitalism that doesn't have these aspects could even be called capitalism remains to be seen.
BTW: People complaining that the system doesn't support their ideas ARE describing a real problem. It's almost as if Capitalism is bad. Like, the system's ability to repress ideas by defunding them, when you need money to live, is a genuine issue. The solution is not this libertarian-tolerance approach where you try to berate advertisers into being unbiased[.] The solution is to create a society where not being monetised means you won't starve to death.
He has said he generally supports some versions of communism and has referred to himself as a communist. Having said that, he's not a fan of the British Communist Party, describing it as "a fucking nightmare of actual literal stalinists".
I'd probably throw my hat in with marxism-leninism or straight up full communism, at least as a conversation starter!
I keep calling myself communist as a way of making a point about the label but it's hard when The Bad Communists are still REAL
I must admit I openly call myself a Communist partially because it drives idiots nuts and not out of any genuine allegiance to a legit commie party.
Question on Ask.fm: So are you an Archo-Communist[sic] or a Socialist? I'm kind of confused.
Brewis: I support one as an intermediary and another as an end-goal (or, to put it better, 'theoretical best society').
Brewis' videos occasionally contain anti-capitalist messages and he is an outspoken critic of liberal capitalist democracies:
Just to float an idea: How about the global poor unite against the system? There are people in both Russia and America who are sick of this shit, good people who will die pointlessly in traditional warfare. Why not work together to destroy fascism and, while we're at it, the liberal capitalist system that makes for such a comfortable nest?
Do not allow the victory of far-right ideology to strike you as spontaneous. It is baked right into liberal capitalist democracy.

Hbomb was a name my cousin gave me when we were very young. Even he doesn't remember that he came up with it. the 'erguy' evolved because i played bomberman a lot and hbomb was taken when I was making a username to play Age of Mythology.

I owe lots of my politics to marxist thinkers and generally support some versions of communism but I support Labour on the grounds that its current slightly-left-of-center policies are better than more torie, and because the incremental improvements brought about by Labour stand a chance of showing people what the right direction might be, as it were.
I think the tools for building a post-scarcity utopia either already exist or are within our grasp right now. I like the idea of working towards that.
Question on Ask.fm: So about your answer to the "Mix of Socialism and Capitalism" question. Would it be safe to say you hold beliefs similar to Democratic Socialism? or on the other hand Social Democracy?
Brewis: I am a communist.

C: Capitalism is such a fucked up economic system that it's beneficial to create bad products in order to sell additional, fixed versions later or release slight improvements, a-la the iPhone or Windows or the new graphics card generation you're about to buy into hahahahha
