Beta Uprising is a term used to refer to a rebellion or rebel movement instigated by beta males, especially those with anti-women opinions, against alpha males and females. The term, which originated as a serious call among men's rights activists, gained popularity as an ironic rallying cry on 4chan's /r9k/ (ROBOT9001) board, often accompanied by Angry Pepe and Wojak images.


The earliest online uses of the term can be found on the men's rights movement blog Fight For Justice in a post named "The Beta Uprising" submitted on December 9th, 2011. The author, a user named legalfighter, defined the term as a fight against the male individuals with power, a.k.a. Alpha Males, taken from the book Liberty or Equality by the Austrian socio-political theorist Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn.[10]

The earliest uses of the term on /r9k/ can be found in a thread about the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting perpatrator James Holmes, submitted on August 7th, 2012, referring to that massacre as being part of a beta uprising.[6] Another post on /r9k/ referenced the beta uprising two days later.[7] However, the term didn't gain traction until late 2013, when an anonymous user posted a copypasta on November 14th which described the scenario of a modern beta uprising.[8]

At this moment a robotic, NEET, virgin, who had made 1500 feel topics, was out of his house for the first time in a week, and fully comprehended the scale of female privilege and the easiness of their lives stood up and held a rock. "What does this rock feel like?" HAHAHA The ego inflated lecturer smirked quite Jewishly and enthusiastically replied, "It feels rough. It hurts my hand just by holding it!" 43KiB, 231x363 1360346244588.jpg View Same Google Yandex iqdb SauceNA。 wrong. If it hurts you and treats you roughly then why haven't you let it c-- on your face yet?" The lecturer was visibly shaken and dropped her chalk and copy of 50 Shades of Grey. She stormed out of the room crying those white knight summoning tears. The betas applauded and all made greentext topics on /r9k/ and realised that if 20 % of the men get all of the women then they outnumber Chad 4 to 1 . A cat named "Unused P----" ran in to the room and sat atop the American Flag and shed a tear on the chalk. After one week all women were enslaved by the beta uprising and distributed equally among the male population. The lecturer lost her tenure and was fired the next day. She committed suicide after realising that none of the hundreds of men that offered to marry her were millionaires, and that her life was too hard.


Over the next year, the term grew in use, with posters beginning to associate it with images of Wojak and Pepe the Frog (mostly the Angry Pepe variant). /r9k/ users claimed the term as referencing the start of a violent revolution against normies and others who deny them a happy life.[5] On December 19th, 2014, a blog titled "Beta Uprising" was created, with just one post containing the definition of the term.[3] On June 6th, 2015, reddit user Buttonwalls submitted a thread on /r/OutOfTheLoop asking about the term, gaining over 20 points (74% upvoted) and 60 comments in less than 4 months.[2] On August 27th, 2015, imgur user xawedude9000 uploaded an album titled "The Beta Uprising", containing screencaps from /r9k/ referencing the term, gaining over 18 points and 15,000 views in a month.[4]

2015 Umpqua Community College Shooting

On September 30th, 2015, a thread was posted on /r9k/ where the poster told users from the Northwestern United States to not go to school,[9] with some of the posters encouraging the OP and giving him tips, proclaiming the OP the founder of a beta uprising. The next day, a mass shooting was reported at Umpqua Community College in Roseberg, Oregon; the shooter was identified as Chris Harper-Mercer. In the following hours, the archived thread was flooded by reactions and featured in various news reports, many of them highlighting the term.[11][12][13]

In the next few days after this event, the /r9k/ board was flooded with threads about the beginning of the beta uprising. On October, 1st, 2015, another thread on /r/OutOfTheLoop asking about the term was created by user concretetown, gaining 35 points (83% upvoted) and over 70 comments in three days.[1] A day later, Taiwanese animators from Next Media Animation uploaded a video titled "Oregon shooting: 4chan users post 'beta-uprising' jokes before UCC school shooting – TomoNews", featuring an animation explaining the beta uprising and gaining over 90,000 views in two days.

The fucky part about this whole thing? The current law enforcement best practice for dealing with "active shooters" is to go straight at them with whatever you have. Don't wait for SWAT, don't establish a perimeter, just grab the biggest gun on your belt or in your trunk and take the fight to the fuckers.

Why? Because they fold like tents. They aren't mentally or physically prepared to deal with any kind of resistance. The "rampage" is critically dependent on being surrounded by nothing but victims. Either they reach the end of their mental endurance and shoot themselves before the law can grab them, or they get tossed in the back of a squad car. To date, none of them have made any real attempt to resist or hold out against the authorities, even in cases where there is a significant disparity in resources in the active shooter's favor.

These fuckers really are betas.
