The internet is full of pasty, obese nerds who like to act tough. It's also full of pedophiles who spend all their time creeping on underage girls. What happens when those two groups are combined? You get Harold E Hall.
Harold E Hall (aka Colonel McBadass, The Voice, The Accuser, Shadow Joe, and about a billion other different usernames) is an internet tough guy, a social justice warrior, and a pedophile from the hive of degeneracy known as Madison, Wisconsin. (Coincidentally, that's also where Sarah Nyberg lives.) He is known for having colossal amounts of Unwarranted Self-Importance, constantly projecting his own personality flaws onto others, and for making death threats at the drop of a hat. He is also known for stalking an underage girl simply because she called him out for being a creepy fuck. To say that Harold is an internet tough guy is a complete understatement. This guy has such a thin hair trigger that almost anything anyone says to him will elicit an essay of death threats and butthurt. Like any good lolcow online, he expresses a desire to be a famous superhero. However, the only way he would get famous was for all the wrong reasons.
Almost nothing is known about Harold's life before he was discovered by the internet at large, other than the fact that he was born to Kathryn C Hall, a single mother, sometime in 1990. No one knows who Harold's father was, but judging by his behavior on the internet, it's unlikely that he ever had any sort of male guidance in his life.
Harold's life as a lolcow began on the sperg factory known as TV Tropes. He fit right in with the upstanding e-citizens of that site - for a while, anyway. He mostly spent his time whining about how statutory rape laws are unfair and how he should have the right to diddle any kiddy he wants. However, he did talk about a time when he tried to be a vigilante.
One day, a teenage girl named lolacat stumbled upon the statutory rape thread where Colonel McFatass frequently whined about how The Man was keeping him away from his quest to obtain some underage ass. She immediately got creeped out over how everyone wanted to abolish said laws and chimed in:
Colonel McBadass replied:
He actually told an underage girl that she is "biased" for not wanting to be raped by a creepy man. Unnerved by her encounter with the internet vigilante, lolacat reported him to the mods and he got permabanned. Of course, this is TV Tropes, so they also permabanned her because she was being mean to a pedo. This was the catalyst that launched a thousand tard rages from Harold and he quickly declared lolacat his arch-nemesis. Unable to get over the loss off his favorite internet hangout, he proceeded to stalk lolacat across the internet. While he was stalking her, he encountered Something Awful's TV Tropes thread where he found this comment from a guy named Roland Jones:
Colonel McBadass quickly responded by making a video.
After he got torn apart in the comment section of his video, he immediately caved and swiftly took it down. Luckily, someone managed to save it and mirrored it for all to enjoy. Unfortunately, most of the other videos on his channel were lost.
The Drama-fight with shinkaito
Colonel McBadass continued to bitch at people in the comments as well as make death threats against lolacat. He was also constantly bragging about how strong he was and was challenging people to fight him. (Unfortunately, most of these conversations have been lost.) A YouTube user named shinkaito called his bluff by accepting his challenge for a fight. The Colonel made plans and told him to meet him at a middle school parking lot. shinkaito, wisely knowing that this creep shouldn't be allowed anywhere near children, offered to fight him at the Pheasant Branch Creek Conservancy instead. Colonel McBadass agreed, and proceeded to go on and on about how he was going to destroy him. When the day of the fight finally came, shinkaito brought along his video camera to make a record of the fight. So what happened? Did Colonel McBadass utterly destroy shinkaito like he said he would?
NO. Colonel McBadass never showed up.
After being called out on his cowardice, Colonel McBadass disappeared off the face of the internet, never to be seen again...
Or so it would seem...
Since Harold is not the kind of person who learns lessons easily, he simply changed his name to "TheVoice" and created a blog where he bitches and moans about every single internet person who wronged him and makes death threats against them, all mixed in with massive doses of projection, delusion, and unwarranted self-importance. He transmitted his messages to an empty house until he was discovered by 888chan. At first they expressed no interest in trolling him, but then TheVoice made the mistake of threatening to kill the people on 888chan simply because the OP linked to his blog. After witnessing how easy it was to piss him off, they saw a great opportunity for lulz and decided to become the Joker to his Batman. After some time of lashing out at their troll comments, he got scared and ran away. A mere one day later, he came back to his blog more defiant than ever. 888chan reminded him that Anonymous does not forget, so he got scared and ran away again. Thinking everyone left, he came back to his blog AGAIN, declared victory, and proceeded to go on and on about how he's going to prove all his detractors wrong. Spoiler warning: he never did.
Eventually, Harold Hall discovered that someone wrote an ED article about him. Like all other spergs who have discovered they have become a laughingstock, he tried to blank it. Unsurprisingly, it didn't work. After realizing that his actions have consequences, he deleted his Facebook page and his YouTube account and wrote up a post on his blog where he said the trolls have won and proceeded to BAWWWWW about how much his life has gone down the shitter ever since lolacat got him perma-banned from TV Tropes.
The guy spent so much time acting so tough, but when push came to shove, he tried to kill himself. Unsurprisingly, he failed. Why is it that spergs like him are so bad at committing suicide?
Everyone thought that Harold E Hall left the internet for good after his failed suicide attempt. But now he's back under the name Shadow Joe, and like anyone else with severe autism, he has learned nothing from his past experiences. He used to be a plain old internet tough guy. Now he's an internet tough guy who prides himself on being an anti-cyberbullying internet vigilante who threatens to kill people in the name of social justice, and although he claims to not be Harold E Hall, he behaves just like him, from his irrational hatred of TV Tropes to his obsession with age of consent laws to his habit of writing up long, rambling, incoherent, rage-filled diatribes whenever someone makes him butthurt. That, and his IP address shows that he lives in Madison, Wisconsin. (His IP address is 22.214.171.124, by the way.) He spends most of his time uploading the most retarded shit imaginable to YouTube. For example, here he is threatening reddit:
He also made a video feebly attacking us, complete with voice changer and horrible recording quality. How cute.
Here are his autism-filled accounts:
- - where he uploads copyrighted clips and tard rage videos
- Twitter account
- Ask account
- Google Plus account
His various shitty blogs:
It was also during this time that he tard raged at a redditor for three weeks straight because the guy "stole" his subreddit.
War with Kiwi Farms
On November 30, 2015, the faggoty spergs over at Kiwi Farms discovered Shadow Joe and proceeded to dig through his entire internet life and laughed at the mountain of autism they found. Harold created an account on the forums, yet he never posted once. Despite all his bravado, he crumbled instantly at the first sign of trouble. Shortly after the thread went up, he made this blog post:
Even Chris-chan put up more of a fight than that. Of course, like any good lolcow, he couldn't resist being the center of attention, so he decided to come back just three days later. He then spent all of December tard raging at the forums while uploading retarded cartoon clips to YouTube, and the residents of Kiwi Farms would respond by laughing at him. Near the end of December, Harold said that on New Year's Eve, he would create a video that would "utterly destroy" Kiwi Farms. The Kiwis eagerly awaited the release of this video, but when the big day finally came, the video was nowhere to be seen. After this, the Kiwis declared that not only was Harold more cowardly than Chris-chan, he was lazier than Chris-chan as well.
Harold didn't even try to rationalize his laziness and cowardice, instead claiming that the whole thing was just a publicity stunt. He later changed his story, claiming that shitting his pants and doing nothing was his master plain the whole time. He then proclaimed that he was invincible. Funny talk coming from a guy who disabled anonymous asks on his ask.fm account, blocks anyone who tweets at him, and continues to delete any and all comments people make on his blogs.
How to troll Colonel McBadass
Due to his internet tough guy personality, it's ridiculously easy to troll him. Here are some surefire ways to get him steaming mad.
- Call him a pedophile.
- Call him a fat fuck.
- Call him a lazy fuck.
- Call him a coward.
- Remind him that he chickened out of fighting shinkaito.
- Remind him that he still hasn't bothered to kill lolacat.
- Tell him that he's not a real boxer.
- Tell him to make a video showing off his "boxing skills".
- Ask him his opinion on Sarah Nyberg.
If he makes a bunch of death threats or threats of physical violence against you, don't worry. Thanks to his laziness and general incompetence, he'll never be able to carry out any of his threats, even if he manages to find out where you live. He's like Eric Cartman, except violently unlikeable.
