“Epic Beard Man”: American Folk Hero? -Robert Campbell

February 18, 2010

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.

[Warning: Video contains strong language and graphic violence.]

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

    Amazing! Just amazing. I would love to see how this plays out in the coming weeks. At least we can say that FINALLY a white person defends himself successfully and no “hate crime” charges will ever be filed. (if there was, it would be laughed out of court.) Hopefully this video will be educational for all our people.

    My tribute video to Epic WHITE Beard Man:

    Videos like this can do a lot to awaken white people.

    I really hope “negress” and “negro” are used for comic effect, because if not you only sound like someone who is stuck in a pre- 1960s era that can’t possibly relate to the majority of our people today in order to bring them on board.
