    Default Macedonian or Bulgarian?

    A YouTuber from Germany with heritage from the country known today as “North Macedonia”, has uploaded a new video (May 12th 2020) that he said is a “very controversial topic” and that he was “contemplating if I should discuss it at all.”



    The YouTuber Bobby’s Perspectives has just under 100,000 subscribers and a total of 4.65 million views.

    The YouTuber, speaking in a very thick typical German accent, explained that his followers know him to identify as a Macedonian-Slav but that he was not overly patriotic because he was raised in Germany. He emphasised that he is a truth seeker, and this is reflected in his videos about diet and religion.

    However, in his quest for truth seeking, it took him down a road that surely he would have never expected.

    His very own identity.

    “I did my research, objectively. I investigated the Greek side. I investigated the Bulgarian side. I investigated the rest of the world. I investigated the Osman [Ottoman] archives, the Turkish archives. I investigated the ‘Macedonian’ claims’,” the YouTuber said, going on to say that Slavs first arrived in the Balkans 900 years after Alexander the Great’s death.

    The next part of the video would have taken many people by surprise. “I am talking from the heart, I’m talking to my fellow ‘North Macedonians’, and even I cannot accept that name any longer,” as the camera zooms into his fingers doing inverted comas.

    The reason why he no longer accepts the name Macedonian?

    “Because Macedonia was Greece, and it is well established and historical truth – as simple as that. We are not the descendants of Alexander, we are Slavs,” he emphasised.

    The YouTuber then explains that many historical figures, such as Tsar Samuil the Bulgarian and Gotse Delchev, are claimed as Macedonian, but are in actual fact Bulgarian – just in case Tsar Samuil “the Bulgarian” was not obvious enough. In fact, Byzantine Emperor Basil II had the nickname “the Bulgar Slayer” as Tsar Samuil the Bulgarian was his greatest adversary,

    He then references Ottoman records that noted in the geographic region of Macedonia there were many ethnic groups, including Greeks, Bulgarians and Jews, but never a separate Macedonian ethnicity listed.

    The YouTuber explained that Josip Broz Tito,the communist dictator of Yugoslavia, was against Bulgarian identity in the region of Macedonia and started the propaganda, killing those who continued to identify as Bulgarian.

    “My great-grandfather was haunted by the Serbs for saying he was Bulgarian,” he said.

    He also explained that the Yugoslavs were afraid that over 1 million Bulgarians would identify with Bulgaria which was not a part of the Yugoslavian Republic, “so Tito gave them the idea they were descendants of the Ancient Macedonians mixed with Slavs.”

    Then he questioned who “we are as a people.”

    “Guys, it is plain and simple, we are Bulgarians. Simple as that,” he said, continuing “and guys, this message comes from the heart.”

    He urged the people of “North Macedonia” that they have to realise who they are and to reclaim their Bulgarian heritage and national identity.

    Our two Australian friends have been like this at some points in their Apricity careers.

    Macedonian ethnicity is like a fairytale, when you mentally grow up and move your head out of Serbo-Comintern influence, the truth hits you.

    Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

    His truth is wrong.

    Looks like he did his research entirely from Wikipedia.

    This weak minded individual who just keeps pumping his veins with steroids, which appears to be taking affect on his brain cells.

    True, if I was from N Macedonia, I would force my country to join Bulgaria and call myself Bulgarian. Richer history, customs and better reputation.

    I guess they are a mix of both, at least based off what I have seen from their GEDmatch they are not fully Slavic

    He was in a house fool of Bulgars, isolated from the outside world. His grandfather was in the Bulgarian army.

    My Grandfather was in the Greek army, but he is still Macedonian.
