Jeremy Hambly, better known online as TheQuartering, is an American YouTube commentator who covers current events surrounding politics, comics, video games, and the entertainment industry.
The majority of Jeremy's content involves him discussing politics, video games, comic books, movies, and TV shows often from the viewpoint of how these topics are affected by 'woke' cultural influences, which he is explicitly against. His channel motto is "Get Woke, Go Broke" which refers to his view that media designed to appeal to "woke" crowds is driving away more numerous traditional audiences for this content, leading to it losing money and good will received from patrons. Over time his content has grown to include more political and drama content, especially drama involving other Youtubers or streamers. He at one point started a separate channel to host his more political videos called Midwestly thought the channel went dormant after steadily declining views in late 2021.
Due to his outspoken views on cultural topics and political support of Donald Trump many regard TheQuartering to be an anti-SJW and right wing content creator though he frequently refers to himself as "practically a liberal." TheQuartering is often criticized for his close associations with other controversial anti-SJW and right-wing political Youtubers including Sargon of Akkad who he has appeared with on several live streams and his cohost on his weekly podcast "The Incredible Salt Mine" AKA "TISM" Bearing and Count Dankula.
Jeremy is well known for his outspoken criticism of Youtube policies and his opposition to "cancel culture." Jeremy has defended other controversial Youtubers whose channels are at risk of banning or demonetization including ImJayStation, Onision, Eight Thoughts, James Charles, and LeafyIsHere.
Due to his outrageous thumbnails and high video output, often over 25 videos a week, many consider his content clickbait. He is often criticized for not doing proper research and getting the facts first, especially when calling out other content creators in videos. He is also frequently criticized for his slow delivery with many accusing him of artificially extending the run time of his videos (as video length affects monetization).
Prior to starting "TheQuartering" channel Jeremy Dale Hambly ran several other Youtube channels. His first channel "BeYourOwnIT" was focused on computer repair advice with Hambly also selling mail order CD-Roms which could guide users through repairing common computer issues. He sold this channel to a computer repair firm and used the money to fund future Youtube channels based around his personal hobbies including "RC Nightmare" a RC hobby channel, "ClawStruck" which focused on arcade claw and prize machines, and "MTG Headquarters" a Magic the Gathering channel which was later rebranded to "Unsleeved Media" after his lifetime ban from Magic.
Jeremy has a twin sister and his father was a factory worker who he credits for his work ethic, claiming he has been working full time since age 13 and often works 100 hour weeks  . He has described his upbringing as unconventional due to having "three gay dads two of which are black" which he often talks about in his videos and on Twitter . Jeremy is married and has been together with his wife since high school. He has a Master's degree in internet marketing and is owner/operator of an internet marketing firm unrelated to his current Youtube channels. He is an avid collector of vintage video games and owns a full arcade housed in his basement opposite the studio space where he records his videos .
In 2015 Jeremy raised $30,000 for an app called GameFindr, which was billed as an app for finding gamers in your area for TCG, board, and video games. The app was criticized for not being available on iPhone and bugs that made it incompatible with newer versions of Android devices.
In 2018 Jeremy started a crowdfund that raised over $6000 for a game store that was sanctioned by Magic the Gathering for allegedly hosting a hostile environment in violation of their tournament guidelines and banned from hosting sanctioned events. The company cited the hanging of a Kekistan flag and a modified version of the official required "safe gaming space" flyer which stated the store wasn't a "safe space." The ban over hosting sanctioned events was later lifted though it's unclear what concessions were made by either side.
In 2018 TheQuartering crowdfunded over $34,000 to cover a lawsuit related to an assault on him while he was at a bar outside the GenCon gaming convention. The lawsuit was eventually settled out of court with the attacker forced to issue a public apology. Jeremy pointed to statements made by the attacker on social media to indicate the assault was an act of politically motivated violence. It was later revealed that Jeremy had insulted the attacker on Twitter saying he "did some horrible things to young boys" though obviously not as a serious accusation. It remains unclear what role that interaction played in the assault if any. Jeremy and the attacker were both banned from GenCon following the assault though the exact reasons for Jeremy's ban was never publicly disclosed.
In December 2018 TheQuartering crowdfunded $159,000 for a site called "Exclusively Games" which was billed as a politics-free place for gaming news and reviews. Due to his controversial past and outspoken political views he stated he would stay out of the day-to-day operations of the site. The site raised another $53,000 via crowdfunding in July 2019. The site was shut down citing financial concerns in May 2020.
In August 2020 TheQuartering started a crowdfund that raised over $77,000 for a gaming lounge that was destroyed during the Kenosha riots. The owners of the store stated the store would reopen.
Magic lifetime ban for harassment
In 2017 TheQuartering made a series of "exposed" style videos on multiple Magic the Gathering content creators which were considered harassment by many. In one particular video he directed his followers to Tweet insults at a female cosplayer [download] after making explicit comments about her which was removed by Youtube for TOS violation. This eventually lead to Jeremy being issued a lifetime ban from the game for harassment.
After his lifetime ban was issued TheQuartering started the #magicgate campaign under the claim he was exposing child predators in the Magic the Gathering community. Many criticized this effort due to the timing saying it was only about Jeremy being vindictive over his ban and seeking revenge. Several of his actions during this time were highly controversial including an episode where he directed followers on a live stream to troll the official Magic Twitter account with threats that Youtuber Andy Warsky was coming to their headquarters to violate and execute them. He was banned from Patreon in this time period for violating their TOS on doxing due to activity on his Twitter account.
BLM Protests and Riots Comments
During the BLM Protests and Riots in Summer 2020 Jeremy Dale Hambly made many comments considered controversial on Twitter that caused him to be dropped by several of his sponsors. This included Tweeting "All lives matter", racial crime statistics, mocking protesters being gassed by police, and defending someone fired for comments about shooting looters at the height of the civil unrest. He later released a video criticizing Dollar Shave Club for being "too woke" for releasing him from their sponsorship.
Cancelled Political Debate and Drunken Live Stream
In 2020 TheQuartering was attempting to break into live streaming on Twitch. At the same time he had a debate scheduled with political Youtube channel "TheSerfsTV" who generally hold opposing views to Quartering. On his first scheduled Twitch broadcast Hambly consumed several large tumbler glasses full of alcoholic mixed drinks on stream and became excessively intoxicated. Many derided this livestream due to his excessive drinking and his overly aggressive goading of his audience to purchase gift subs or donate large sums of money. This received increased criticism in light of recent comments and videos Hambly had publicly made about Twitch streamers begging their audiences for money. During this stream TheQuartering urinated into a drain on his basement floor (off camera) several times and proclaimed "I just peed in my basement" asking users to donate in response. In the fallout of the Twitch stream Hambly cancelled his debate with TheSerfsTV accusing them of harassment for mentioning the incident briefly during a 48 hour charity fundraiser. This caused a controversy as Hambly himself had agreed to the debate on the condition TheSerfsTV donated $5000 to charity and he cancelled shortly after their channel and viewers raised over $40,000 in anticipation of the event. To quell the controversy Hambly donated $5000 to the designated charity and another $5000 to another charity and deleted a series of Tweets where he was initially very confrontational and had @'d the charity's handle on Twitter pulling them into arguments. This caused the controversy to die down.
In 2021 TheQuartering Tweeted several times at the sponsor of Twitch streamer ZombaeKillz for a joke she made which he claimed was biased against white people and documented on his feed how the sponsor had removed his Tweets. This lead to his followers spamming comments on the sponsor's tweets. This escalated to the two sides followers arguing until finally the police were called to the streamer's house. In response Jeremy deleted his entire Twitter feed and videos with a total of almost 14,000,000 views from his channel.
Megan Fox Comments
In 2021 TheQuartering Tweeted out a picture of actress Megan Fox at the Video Music Awards with the caption "She looks plastic and like a walking sex doll. Way too much plastic surgery. Stop with this madness. She's gross." (link) This lead to widespread criticism for the sexist nature of his comments as well as many noting Hambly's poorly groomed facial hair and general lack of effort in his appearance in contrast with Megan Fox, who is roughly the same age as him. Despite the criticism TheQuartering doubled down and continued to make comments deriding Fox's appearance.
In late 2021 Manosphere personality and life coach Jack Murphy appeared on a livestream for an interview with Sydney Watson which became contentious after a tough line of questioning. Jack became very combative towards Sydney with many criticizing the way he acted. Following the stream he issued an apology on Twitter however many associates of Watson were sent embarrassing details about Murphy online and proceeded to publish those highlighting how they contrasted with Murphy's public persona heavily based in traditionally masculinity. TheQuartering was the largest channel engaging in this public shaming of Murphy and attracted the majority of the attention surrounding this. Though initially most were supportive of exposing Murphy for questionable behavior that clashed with his public image, hypocritical statements, and possible financial crimes as the public feud dragged on and Murphy had already suffered career ending damage to his reputation some criticized what became increasingly personal attacks from TheQuartering. At one point TheQuartering was sent amateur pornography Murphy had made with his wife for a streaming site and published screenshots of the explicit content uncensored to his Twitter account. He also posted many photos of Jack engaged in explicit acts and penetrating himself with a sex toy. Eventually Twitter suspended Jeremy's Twitter account temporarily for the personal nature of these attacks  and shortly after Murphy deleted most of his internet presence which caused the controversy to die down.
Frosk Interview & YellowFlash Livestream Controversy
In early 2022 G4TV host Frosk was heavily criticized by TheQuartering and several other "anti-woke" content creators for comments she made about sexism in gaming. In response she offered to do an interview with several people in the anti-woke space to explain her views more clearly. TheQuartering stepped up requesting an interview then teased in a video that it was going to happen soon. Several anti-woke Youtubers were opposed to giving attention to Frosk saying it would only advance her agenda and do damage to their movement to keep wokeness out of gaming and comics. One such conversation was happening on a livestream between Yellow Flash, comics artist Ethan Van Sciver, and several others when TheQuartering began sending in chat donations with messages saying Frosk was right because the chat was acting like everything she said "gamers" were (ie sexist and toxic). When challenged to call into the show to clear things up he initially declined while posting messages complaining about the criticism on Twitter but eventually decided to call in. When he joined the chat he was clearly heavily intoxicated and doubled down on his statements that Frosk was right about gamers while hurling insults at the panel before mocking Yellow Flash for invoking the "culture war" in trying to get him to decline the interview saying it was easy to say that when he had nothing to lose. Many saw this as TheQuartering putting his personal interests above the interests of the anti-woke movement after he had built his entire channel on the content and audience it provided. In response to the criticism TheQuartering sent out a tweet indicating he was no longer interested in doing the interview due to all the drama surrounding it.
Coffee Brand Coffee Controversy
In early Summer of 2022 TheQuartering announced he had bought a coffee company and would be running it as a "non-political" coffee company for people who are tired of giving their money to "woke" companies. This venture proved very successful by Quartering's accounts and he used many commentary community drama related events to promote the brand. He received a rush of orders after making multiple $100 donations advertising his product while Tim Pool's Timcast was being swatted live on the air, he later teamed up with Rekieta Law and shaved his beard on livestream as part of a stretch goal. The controversy began when Quartering made a video about trans Twitch Streamer Keffals accusing her of grooming minors for sex. After her response the comments got heated and Quartering repeatedly misgendered her on Twitter and made a second video about her contacting his sponsors and used the drama to market his coffee brand. TheQuartering made a third video saying he was feeling pressure from his sponsors and that he would no longer engage then quietly deleted the previous two videos after also deleting several months worth of tweets days before. The Keffals drama led people to investigate his coffee company which revealed it was actually just a drop-shipping operation and the coffee was the product of Millcreek Coffee Roasters using a private label service which allows companies like his to sell Millcreek coffee rebranded as their own. Millcreek also engages in many of the "woke" activities Quartering often derides in his content and used specifically as examples of things his coffee company did not financially support including making vocal statements supporting BLM, trans-rights, touting itself as an all female owned business, and participating in LGBT+ pride events. The facts of the matter also highlighted false statements Quartering made about his business including that his company roasted their own beans and was not just rebranding an existing product, that his product was unique and not available anywhere else, and that he bought an existing coffee company. This information was later compiled from posts on various internet forums by internet account ChudsOfTikTok.12
