[February 24, 2021] A month ago, my wife called on me to watch this “new guy” talking on YouTube. I laughed hysterically, only after two minutes (a rare behavior, honestly I was). This guy Doug TenNapel is a conservative who places his political commentary in video format on several social media platforms. You gotta see this guy!
Here is the premise of his show. A self-described man “in exile,” Doug rants (his word) about leftist political cowardice, President Biden’s dementia, and Democratic Party policies that harm Americans. For example, a common theme is his opposition to abortion and those who support it through silence.
“The true violent people are Democrats and those who lean left.” – Doug TenNapel
A supporter of President Donald J. Trump and freedom lover, Doug has a rare, gentlemanly wit and ability to focus on leftists’ weaknesses and the negative effect of their progressive ideas. He’s a real go-getter with thick skin. And a man’s man; at 6’8″ tall and slender frame, he can be intimidating to those who do not know him. With a good stiff drink in his hand, you can see into his eyes that Doug is a gentleman and teller of truths.
At first, I thought he was just a funny guy using Republican talking points, just adding humor to a usually dull topic. But the more I watched, the more I realized that besides being entertaining, he actually knows of which he speaks. Hard-hitting, swift-moving, twisted humorous, I find Doug TenNapel, a relief from typical monotone political commentators.
By trade, Doug is a cartoonist, comic book publisher, and video game creator who made a name for himself by creating various innovative ideas like Earthworm Jim. My son played this game on an Epson Equity II computer in the mid-1990s. I liked the game too because it contained very little violence. Doug is also a devoted Christian. Maybe that is also why I like him so much.
If you want to get a good sense of his short videos, here is one from YouTube (lasts a little over 7 minutes. “Trump Defense Video Destroys Dems! Doug TenNapel in Exile.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8HcJSFboqc
Doug TenNapel labels his videos with the words “In Exile” because he sees himself as a purveyor of truth in a time of censorship. Thus, the only way to survive is to go it alone, in exile.
