Epic Beard Man: American Folk Hero?

One of the most popular videos on the internet right now — the initial Youtube clip now has 654,889 views,  literally overnight, and it’s climbing fast — features a conflict between a negro thug and his 67-year-old would-be victim, a White man (not simply a male, like so many capons) by the name of Thomas Bruso, which took place on a Bay Area bus in broad daylight.

After a misunderstanding arising from the young negro’s insistence on mumbling pidgin and perpetuated by his aggressiveness, he threatens the elderly white man several times with violence. The White man inquires why the negro insists on being so hostile, then states clearly that there is some sort of misunderstanding, and relocates to the front of the bus. He makes every effort to avoid violence short of jumping off the moving bus or grovelling for mercy, which would only have encouraged his cowardly attacker. The negro male responds by walking to the front of the bus and taking a swing at the White gentleman, which does not turn out as he expected.

A young negress seated next to both parties, who was filming the incident, urges on her co-ethnic with chants such as, “beat his White ass” and taunts the elderly White man by screaming things like, “say it again, Pinky!” When the 67-year-old White fellow not only defends himself, but does so effectively, she launches into feigned expressions of horror and urges her fellow negro to press charges against the senior citizen. Bleeding profusely, the thwarted thug continues to mouth threats through his busted lip while calling for the “ambulance,” which has turned into the popular facebook/youtube meme “amber lamps” due to his ebonic inflection. She finishes up her video by stealing the old guy’s fanny pack, which he had inadvertently left on the bus in the wake of the struggle.

Thomas Bruso, a Vietnam veteran now known on the internet as Epic Beard Man, has become an overnight folk hero to hundreds of thousands of White Americans who are tired of being perpetual victims of violent hate crimes in their own land. It is my sincere hope that this number continues to grow until his deeds are cemented in the memory of millions of Americans, who may begin asking some uncomfortable questions that the regime simply cannot answer. Jared Taylor uses the term “racial realism” for a very good reason: the facts of the matter truly are indisputable and self-evident to every realistic man on the street who is willing to be honest with himself.

The woman who filmed the incident appeared on TV news to discuss it:

She also issued a public apology on Youtube in which she asserts that she did not steal EBM’s bag. She claims that she has been getting “hammered” by bloggers and comments on youtube, which appears to be true (and very well deserved) if the responses posted to that apology are any indication. 99% of those leaving comments call her out on the fact that she is lying through her teeth and did her best to perpetuate violence against Mr. Bruso. Here is her unsuccessful attempt to “clear her name:”

Important Update: I just spoke with Andrew Yeoman of the Bay Area National Anarchists, who reports that EBM has been arrested in relation to this incident and he is currently in custody. The exact nature of the charges against him are unknown at this point, but I will provide updates as they become available. Andrew and his BANA comrades have mobilised quickly in support of EBM and they are busy preparing for nationwide protests against this injustice. If you wish to assist BANA in this endeavour, contact Andrew at [email protected]



02/19 Update:
BANA informs me that all charges against Mr. Bruso have been dropped. In a recent television interview, Bruso stated that his negro assailant was a convicted murderer and that this incident constitutes a violation of parole.

  3. The video has gotten at least a million view in just a couple of days, all of the uploads put together. He’s a sensation!

  4. Very nicely done, justice was served. It wasn’t cruel, it wasn’t excessive force, it was perfect Aryan justice. That’s how it was done in the old days.

    Anyone who isn’t incredibly biased would agree that the little half-pint, cornrowed negro got just what he deserved.

    That white man may have been 67 years old, but he was a much bigger guy and athletic. He’s like a Randy Couture. Reminds me of my father, who is still very strong for his age and can throw a punch.

    That negro probably has intimidated whites before and thought he could get away with it. Well he antagonized the wrong bull this time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofoidO_0Di0#t=01m32s

    Those negros obviously need to help with their ebonics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlWOu9FHm-I

    Epic, indeed.

    One video like this is worth a dozen attempts at logical debate.

    Now waiting for the dissemblers to try to spin this to make the White man seem the guilty party…

  6. Awakened Saxon.

  7. Me and my wife lived in San Francisco.

    She says the guy was pretty cool but pretty crazy. He used to run through the door at Hooters where she worked and scream and shout at people in a non-threatening, San Francisco, crazy guy way. He hung out in North Beach. I have vague memories of him too but I was pretty drunk in those days.

    My wife says he used to rant about all the “chinks” ruining the country all the time.

  8. Please show your support for this man. This is one of our own viciously attacked and whom the media is trying to crucify. Free Epic Beard Man!

  9. Sounds like an interesting fellow, I bet he has a lot of stories to tell.

    Just shows you what a sad state we’re in, when a strong, courageous white man is deemed “crazy” or “on drugs.”

    If the media were in different hands this guy would have his own reality show.

  10. We urge our fellow human beings to Choose Love, Not Hate.

  11. LOL! Drifter!

    Too bad the Prognathics are so hateful.

    I am gonna write to Andrew, and ask what I can to to help Mr. Bruso. HE TRIED TO GET AWAY!!!!

  12. Just for a laugh I went to a popular videogame forum I used to visit to see their reaction to the video. The Off Topic part of the forum is filled with guilty white liberals and other assorted anti-whites, and it was exactly as I predicted!

    The Word Police immediately caught that the old guy said “Chinaman” and began debating whether this is a racist term. They sent the evidence over to the Thought Police, and after analysis, they concluded that yes the old man is probably a racist. The implication is, well, he did say Chinaman, so he’s probably racist, so ya know, he kind of deserved to have a punch thrown at him.

    For clear thinking human beings, it’s obvious the black guy is clearly the aggressor, he’s the thug here. The old man was trying to stay away from confrontation. He’s the good guy. It’s plain as day.

    Nope, not for the white people with Guilty White Disorder and other anti-whites, they have to hem and haw and detract from the obvious and begin analyzing the history of the word Chinaman. Sick. To be fair there were quite a few posters on the old man’s side though.

  13. Someone beat me to posting this at a forum I regularly post at filled with libertarians and leftists who are all extremely pc in terms of race. Most people there supported EBM. Surprisingly no one there has called him a racist yet.

  14. Most forums I’ve seen have been supportive of him, have hardly seen any aside from youtube comments from blacks that were negative.

  15. this incident … oh my, you called it though, Campbell: EBM will be remembered as a folk hero.

    this incident is not a freak, or man-bites-dog, it’s happened many times. (i’ve been kicked off the bus twice over the years, for not putting up with some black bullshit … somehow i was the troublemaker.)

    it”s interesting to consider how that black thought he could handle the old guy, twice his size and clearly a tough guy.

    this is awesome though, everyone is seeing this, and reality speaks for itself.

  16. I had never heard the term “national-anarchism” before reading the coda to this posting. The wikipedia article on it was quite interesting. I suspect others may find it interesting as well. It’s not totally unexpected to see attempts to pry white nationalism away from its neo-nazi roots. It’s odd that they took the term “nationalist” to conflate with “anarchist”. The theories are almost polar opposites. I would have thought “white anarchism” would have been the better description of the synthesis they are attempting.

  17. on EBM becoming a folk hero –

    it’s as Tolkien said: what gets added to the pot (of legend) is that which belongs there: that which is appropriate to the story.

  18. forgive the vanity here, but he should not have been acronymized in my last post: change EBM to Epic Beard Man, and change that to his real name, Thomas Bruso.

  19. I guess soon it will be illegal for Whites to defend themselves from attacks by Blacks and Hispanics.

  20. The Word Police immediately caught that the old guy said “Chinaman” and began debating whether this is a racist term. They sent the evidence over to the Thought Police, and after analysis, they concluded that yes the old man is probably a racist.

    Ah, but you see, the creators of this PC dogma tell us that all whites are racist anyway, from birth. “Racism” is merely a mental leash to control you, to establish dominance over you, the more you struggle the tighter it chokes you. So there’s no point in arguing about it, the only question is do you kneel before the false gods of diversity and beg for forgiveness? Choose love (compliance), not hate (resistance).

    The basic idea behind Newspeak is to remove all shades of meaning from language, leaving simple dichotomies (pleasure and pain, happiness and sadness, goodthink and crimethink) which reinforce the total dominance of the State.

  21. Folk hero indeed, this has so much resonance. I’m telling you this could be made into a movie, comic, cartoon, reality show, anything.

  22. Brilliant and hilarious!

  23. swedish fish,

    For clear thinking human beings, it’s obvious the black guy is clearly the aggressor, he’s the thug here. The old man was trying to stay away from confrontation. He’s the good guy. It’s plain as day.

    Oh come on, walking away from a potential confrontation is a well-known tactic of instigators.

    Andja catch the look of contempt on the pretty hipster chick’s face? She’s obviously no stranger to TNB.

    On a more serious note,

    Thomas Bruso, a Vietnam veteran now known on the internet as Epic Beard Man, has become an overnight folk hero to hundreds of thousands of White Americans who are tired of being perpetual victims of violent hate crimes in their own land. It is my sincere hope that this number continues to grow until his deeds are cemented in the memory of millions of Americans, who may begin asking some uncomfortable questions that the regime simply cannot answer.

    From Rosa Parks to the Freedom Riders to desegregation, could the storied history of niggers and buses once again be the catalyst for a social revolution in America?

  24. All hail EBM! The negroid thug thought he could back down Mr.Bruso with his ghetto trash-talk & brazen, TNB…yet EBM showed the hoodlum what a brave & bold White man is capable of! 🙂

  25. Andja catch the look of contempt on the pretty hipster chick’s face? She’s obviously no stranger to TNB.

    that she wasn’t motivated to move her ass, …

  26. Apparently this is the same guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URYXWWRrArQ

  27. http://www.fdesouche.com/

    L’artiste congolais Jessy Matador a été choisi par France Télévisions pour représenter la France au prochain concours Eurovision de la chanson, a révélé ce matin sur Europe 1 une journaliste de Télé Loisirs.

  28. Just as I suspected, there is constant harassment of whites on those buses.

    In closing, in The Town you have a lot of these young/not so young black kids that fuck with white people on the bus. Not just any white guy but white guys that seem vulnerable to them. Just the other day there was this guy that looked like Tug Speedman’s character in Tropic Thunder. The mentally challenged guy. He got fucked with on the bus. It wasn’t cool. There is also a “slow guy” that’s a neighborhood guy whom I’ve seen get fucked with. I think this guy and his crew thought IAAMF guy was an easy target too hence the “beat his white ass” remark. You never know who you’re fucking with. That cat had it coming to him.

    Thanks for your time,
    Chuck

    this is fucked up. EBM in custody ?
    the man acted in self defence, it’s obvious.
    something’s wrong here.

  30. Already over 2 million views… Hitting the web in europe as well, even mainstream is picking it up.

    I suspect over 5 million views within a week.

  31. Who’s the sucker now, sucker? Too bad EBM didn’t take a swing at the bitch as well.

  32. Now that’s a happy ending!

  33. Why are there no articles in the media concerning Russo’s arrest? I’m trying to confirm here that he is actually under arrest?

  34. haha somebody made a website for EBM

    check it http://www.epicbeardmanfacts.com

    hahaha

    Y chromosome analysis has shown that whites and yellows are very closely related compared to, say, blacks.

    Consider that most of the human race and extant wealth of the world are the result of these fairly closely related races, where as blacks have not yet entered the bronze age in Africa.

    Nature recently published an analysis of 4 South African genomes which showed that the bantus are not ancient stock, but a isolated and distant offshoot (6% relatedness when 40% was expected).

    Science, not Judaism and its offshoots, is the natural religion of the white race; something our yellow cousins have something to teach us about.

  36. “It’s odd that they took the term “nationalist” to conflate with “anarchist”. The theories are almost polar opposites. I would have thought “white anarchism” would have been the better description of the synthesis they are attempting.”

    It is you who conflates nation with state.

  37. Anarchism as an end-goal is silly and impractical, especially when you start reading the theories they expose (which has overlap with the Libertarian movement). The state will be the cornerstone of any future white nation.

    However, when it comes to opposing the current anti-white regime, I certainly have nothing against de-legitimizing its claim to power and working to oppose it.

  38. Donald,

    You confuse the nation with the state. A nationality does not depend on the state but the state depends upon a nationality.

    Otherwise I am meeting EBM today and will update people where they can send legit donations to EBM for having to go through this ordeal.

    Thanks.

  39. Andrew,

    I am not confused. The nation itself does not require a state apparatus when just talking the nation as it is in a vacuum; that is not my argument.

    Rather, my argument is that any future nation for our people will require one on the basis that the confluence of competing ethnic and political interests among dwindling land and resources will undoubtedly require strong authority and state power to uphold our interests.

    I am very doubtful that an anarchic society would be able to adequately defend itself against the very hostile interests we are fighting today; in fact, I would argue that any society in such a state would quickly end its little experiment in anarchism and start looking for leaders and government pronto.

  40. Donals – I agree. We can return to our Racial mandates, such as an emphasis on individualism, etc, when we have secured a Homeland. We wil have to be ruthlessly disciplined, to secure, and hold a Homeland

  41. Joanne- I agree. Punching a Negress bears no relationship to hitting a woman.

  42. that she wasn’t motivated to move her ass, …

    sometimes wexler gets things exactly wrong, what can i say.

    it’s that she didn’t move (where was she supposed to go anywaze?), that makes her into amber lamps.
