Shaun, initially Shaun and Jen (S&J), is a leftist YouTuber that critiques conservative and Alt-Right media and YouTubers, generally on solid grounds, and generally at extreme length.[note 1]

Origins[edit]

The channel was originally a let's play channel run by two old school friends, Shaun and Jen [1] [2]. Shaun began making videos about other YouTubers (such as LeafyIsHere [3] and CinemaSins [4]) in 2016, and soon after began making videos refuting the arguments of popular right-wing, alt-right [5] and anti-SJW YouTubers [6]. The videos became increasingly popular as a new wave of leftist youtubers (such as ContraPoints and Hbomberguy) began to gain traction on YouTube through their critiques of right-wing politics. Jen doesn't participate in these videos beyond occasionally drawing the thumbnail art [7] [8], and eventually left for Twitch. By September 2017, the title of the Shaun and Jen Youtube channel was changed to simply "Shaun" (pending a new name), while Shaun's twitter handle and Twitch Channel still have Jen in the title [9] [10]. The symbol of the channel is a human skull wearing sunglasses, allegedly in order to "reclaim the skull" from the alt-right (Davis Aurini, maker of The Sarkeesian Effect and Alt Right Dogs, keeps one on his bookshelf).

Sample videos[edit]

  • XY Einzefall(link): A response to a "migrant crime reporting map". As an example, S&J shows that almost all of the "arson" cases are tipped toasters.
  • Do women destroy civilizations(link): A response to Black Pigeon Speaks' claim that, well, women destroy civilizations.
  • Stefan Molyneux's Fall of Rome - A Response(link): A response to Stefan Molyneux's shitty sources and corresponding shitty ideas about the fall of Rome.
  • Ghostbusters 2016 Review & Analysis(link): A response to the "Ghostbusters is feminist propaganda" meme.
  • Charlottesville: The True Alt-Right(link): A response to James Allsup's (a Charlottesville protestor) claims about the alt-right and showing the neo-Nazi, racist, and anti-Semitic elements the movement has.
