Now Milo Yiannopolis Turns Up to Help Sargon Destroy UKIP

May 7, 2019

More from the continuing implosion of UKIP thanks to Carl Benjamin, aka Sargon of Akkad. As I’ve blogged about several times previously, Sargon’s one of the extreme right-wing bloggers, vloggers and internet personalities Kipperfuehrer Batten has recruited to boost UKIP’s electoral chances. The others include Mark Meechan, alias Count Dankula, of Nazi pug infamy and Paul Joseph Watson, late of American conspiracy news site, Infowars. As well as the vicious islamophobe and thug, Tommy Robinson. And rather than increase UKIP’s popularity and chances, these personalities are actually torpedoing it massively.

Sargon’s become infamous for a series of comments he made on social media. These include the tweet he sent to Labour MP Jess Phillips, saying ‘I wouldn’t even rape you’. This was bad enough, but then the Sunday before last the Mail on Sunday did a hit piece on him, reporting other comments Sargon had made which suggested he endorsed paedophilia. In one internet conversation, Sargon is supposed to have said that people could quote him as approving of adults have sex with boys. Because they did in ancient Greece, where it was called mentoring. In another chat with the Justicar, another vlogger, who claimed to have had sex before he was 11, Sargon had commented that it depended on the child whether this was right, and had to be considered on a case by case basis. When he was running The Thinkery podcast, Sargon had also made a broadcast with Singaporean vlogger Amos Yee, who genuinely believes that the age of consent should be scrapped.

And this is in addition to Sargon’s own use of racial slurs and his casual antifeminism. Sargon has attacked the media reporting these comments as ‘dirty, dirty smear merchants’, but he hasn’t disavowed them. Or at least, not the tweet directed at Jess Phillips, which he’s tried to defend, as has Batten, who claimed it was satirical. This has just made it all worse.

But, it seems, as Michael Medved used to say when presenting Channel 4’s The Worst of Hollywood back in the 1980s, ‘the worst is yet to come.’ How much worse? Milo Yiannopolis has announced that he’s coming to help Sargon out. That’s how much worse.

Yiannopolis is, you’ll remember, another extreme right-wing pundit. A former technology correspondent for Breitbart, Yiannopolis made his name promoting extreme Conservative views and policies. He was another anti-feminist, who also attacked Blacks, other ethnic minorities and has been accused of homophobia because of his comments about gays. And like Sargon, he tried to excuse it all in the name of ‘free speech’. He also hid behind his own identity as a half-Jewish gay man with a Black husband. A year or so ago he was touring America’s campuses as part of his ‘Dangerous Faggot’ campaign for the Republican party and Donald Trump. He also had a very lucrative book deal ready with the imprint of publishers Simon and Schuster specialising in right-wing politics.

Then it all spectacularly self-destructed. Like Sargon, Yiannopolis opened his mouth to make comments approving of child abuse. This was to Joe Rogan on his internet show, where Yiannopolis revealed that he had been molested when he was 13 by a Roman Catholic priest, called ‘Father Michael’, but claimed that he had been the active seducer. He said that sexual relationships between boys and older men were beneficial in that they helped these young gays with their sexual identity. He also claimed he had been to Hollywood boat parties where very young boys had been employed as prostitutes, but refused to name names. Under Californian law, failure to report sexual abuse is a crime. I don’t think Yiannopolis was formally charged with any offence, but his comments cost him his job with Breitbart, his book contract, and an invitation to the annual American Conservative gathering, CPAC. He has been declared bankrupt to the tune of £4 million. He was also hoping to go to Australia to do a tour there with Tommy Robinson, but the Ozzie authorities refused to let him in. But now Yiannopolis has sent a message telling everyone that he is flying in tomorrow to help Sargon on the campaign trail.

This is someone, who has destroyed their career through comments supporting paedophilia, coming to support someone else, who’s political career is being destroyed because they’ve allegedly made comments supporting child abuse. This brings to mind the old adage, ‘When you’re in a hole, stop digging.’

A few days ago, Kevin Logan, Kristi Winters and Steve Shives did a livestream together, in which they discussed and mocked Sargon’s utterly incompetent management of his electoral campaign. To say it is not going well for Sargon is an understatement. Thanks to Sargon, the Gloucestershire branch of UKIP have shut themselves down rather than endorse him as a candidate, posting this on their website. When Sargon went to Gibraltar to drum up support there, as apparently it’s part of the southwest England European constituency, governor Fabian Picardo refused to meet him. The good politico then issued a tweet stating that as far as he was concerned, Sargon’s views represented hate speech that had no place in his country.

This is nearly two and three quarter hours long, and I haven’t watched all of it, so I can’t comment on the video as a whole. But the reports and screenshots of Gloucestershire UKIP are at the 38 minute mark.

Logan, Winters and Shives also believed that Sargon was also refused entry to a Beefeater restaurant when he went to my home city of Bristol the other day. He wanted to hold a meeting in it, but somebody phoned them up to warn them that a Fascist wanted to hold his meeting there. So they refused.

The trio also joked that Sargon was the reverse Midas. Just as the ancient King in Greek legend turned all he touched into gold, so Sargon turns everything he comes into contact with to ordure. Why, joked Shives, couldn’t he join the Tories? Quite. And while he’s at it, I’d also like him to join the Jewish Labour Movement and get a job with Gabriel Pogrund on the Sunday Times, writing articles about how Corbyn and his supporters are anti-Semites. That should destroy those organisations.

According to Logan and co, UKIP’s polling is about 2.4 per cent, which is just above the 2 per cent level needed to get one of the two listed candidates for south-west England elected. But Sargon is the second, and at this rate definitely won’t be going to Europe any time soon. But after his performance, and support from Yiannopolis, it’s going to be a good question whether there’s still a UKIP party after this election.

Mail on Sunday Runs Hit-Piece against Sargon of Akkad

April 30, 2019

More from the escalating train wreck that’s the political career of Carl Benjamin, alias Sargon of Akkad. Sargon’s standing as one of the two listed UKIP candidates for southwest England. He’s already been pilloried in the press and media for his infamous tweet directed at Jess Phillips, where he said ‘I wouldn’t even rape you’. Just as his fellow Kipper, Mark Meechan, aka Count Dankula, also has for making a YouTube video about how he had taught his girlfriend’s dog to make the Nazi salute when he shouted ‘Gas the Jews’. Sargon’s name now seems indelibly linked to his Tweet to Phillips, while Dankula has been described by the press as ‘Nazi Pug Man’. And when the Scum describes Sargon as ‘a sicko’ and Meechan as ‘a thug’, it’s very clear that both of them are in real trouble.

Sargon’s Approving Comments on Child Abuse

And on Sunday that day’s edition of the Mail turned its withering attention on him, written by the paper’s political editor Glen Owen, with the title “Now Ukip candidate who said he ‘wouldn’t even rape’ a Labour MP says it’s OK to sexually abuse boys”. It seems an unnamed but highly placed member of the party had given a dossier of comments over to the rozzers. The material apparently included a YouTube post of Sargon’s in which he said he could be quoted as saying that people could f*** young boys. This wasn’t so controversial, as it was normal in ancient Greece, where it was known as mentoring. He was also quoted as saying that he was looking for something that would generate outrage, and appealed to people to send him underage or child porn, which he would quickly delete so no-one gets in trouble. The article also mentioned how he had also created a video in which he used various racial slurs against Blacks, Jews, Asians, gays and the mentally handicapped. It also mentioned that Sargon had sent a porn video to someone, showing a White woman having sex with three Black men.

When asked about this material, Batten claimed they were fabricated tweets that had been disproven years ago, and that Sargon would be taking action. Sargon himself has also sent messages via his Backworldsman twitter account stating that it was conversation that the MoS’ hacks really hadn’t listened to. They’d just recorded his half of the conversation. The MoS article also mentioned that Sargon had been asked about his sex remarks. Sargon called them ‘dirty, dirty smear merchants’, and said that it was ‘an abstract conversation’. Which, as Zelo Street points out, confirms that the conversation actually took place.

Zelo Street concluded their article on this latest mess by stating that by the time Sargon gets a libel suite together, the European elections will have been and gone. He was damaged goods before he joined UKIP, and making him a political candidate was beyond foolish. And that’s before the press starts on the rest of Kipper hopefuls. He ends by waving goodbye to the beleaguered party.

Logan and Co on Sargon and the Self-Destruction of UKIP

Sargon’s massively imploding political career was also discussed by anti-Fascist YouTubers Kevin Logan, Kristi Winters, Mike Stuchbery and The Cognitive Society in the latest edition of Logan’s monthly run-down of events in the far right, ‘Let Them Eat Kek’. And they began by noting just how disastrous Batten’s choice of Sargon, Meechan and the other YouTube rightists were. Winters, who is a political scientist, said that she had never seen a party so determined on its own self-destruction. She and the others agreed that Batten was simply fixated on the immediate election, regardless of the long term harm his recruitment of the members of the YouTube far right were actually doing to his party and its election chances. UKIP’s polling figures have dropped by 10 per cent, so that the party is now favoured by only four to seven per cent of the people polled.

And while Sargon’s supporters claim that the comments attributed to him about child abuse are false, Logan confirmed that at least one of them was true. Sargon had defended the sexual abuse of young boys, saying that it depended on the child, in an internet conversation with another YouTuber, the Justicar, who said he had sex when he was ten years old. He also said that it depended on the child in a conversation with another YouTuber, Amos Yee. Logan was, however, doubtful that Sargon had made the comments requesting people to send him images of child abuse.

In fairness, it has to be said that these do contradict other comments Sargon has made about the age of consent. The Mail on Sunday also quoted him as saying that he has always said that it should be raised to 18 in his rebuttal of the paper’s allegations. Logan said on his video that Sargon really does believe this, just as he’s made these comments approving the absolute opposite. Logan and his guests in the video absolutely condemn sex with children. Winters points out that children cannot legally consent to sex, even if they feel they can do so. They simply aren’t prepared, physically, mentally or emotionally, for sex with adults.

Sargon’s Attack on ‘Political Correctness’

And apart from his noxious views on the abuse of underage children, Sargon seems determined to torpedo his career in other ways. In their video, Logan and his guests also comment on a video of Sargon’s interview with Sky News Kate McCann. And this is another train wreck. He begins by asserting the decline of the press, and that he’s superior because he has a million subscribers online. This is a false security, as while print sales are declining, the online editions of newspapers are expanding massively. He defends his comment to Jess Phillips and the video in which he uses racial slurs. He states that he is determined to attack ‘political correctness’ because of the way it is undermining free speech. He also believes it should be discarded as soon as possible, as if it is not, then someone much worse than him will come along and do it. He defends the video by stating that it is part of the British tradition of dark, edgy humour, which includes racist jokes. Which he then admits to enjoying.

Ignorance of Duties of MEPs and Kipper Policy

He also doesn’t seem to know much, if anything, about the European parliament nor what he will be expected to do if he is elected to it. And when asked by McCrae, he can’t even name one UKIP policy, even though he went to the European Parliament as part of a UKIP delegation objecting to a specific EU policy. He could have mentioned that, but he doesn’t. He just goes on to make his comments about political correctness and defending racist jokes.

How Long Will Sargon Be Tolerated by YouTube?

Logan and his guests conclude that it’s very likely that Sargon won’t get elected, and that he and the others will take UKIP down with them. Sargon may not even really be interested in working for the party anyway. He may see it simply as a strategy to get more viewers for his YouTube videos. And it isn’t certain how long he can continue with them. He’s already been banned several times on Twitter. In the great scheme of things, one million followers is not a great amount – nowhere near as Pewdiepie – and so YouTube may feel that they’re better off banning him rather than risk advertisers turning away because of Sargon and his content.

Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and the Synagogue Shooting in America

Apart from Sargon and his antics, the video also includes discussion of the recent synagogue shooting in America, committed by another Fascist piece of garbage, who had previously attempted to burn down a mosque. They make the point that this shows that islamophobia has to be treated as seriously as anti-Semitism, as the Fascists who attack mosques are equally opportunities racists.

Sargon’s Refusal to State Political Views

I can’t fault Logan and co’s analysis of Sargon and his antics. Logan said in a previous video that the press would go back to Sargon’s previous videos apart from his infamous tweet to Phillips, and use them to tear him apart. And when asked by McCann what he really stood for, Sargon refused to say, and directed viewers to look at his YouTube videos instead for information. This they are unlikely to do. Sargon has been posting on YouTube for years and years, and so there are hundreds of his videos there. Most of them are unlikely to interest the average voter, as they’re mostly about video games and the online gaming community. People are therefore not going to be at all willing to wade through this material just to find his views on tax, the EU or private industry for example.

Racist Jokes Unacceptable in 21st Century

As for his admission that he enjoys racist jokes, this probably does appeal to UKIP’s core voters. These are mostly socially conservative voters over 50, who feel left behind by recent societal changes and threatened by the rise of ethnic minorities and feminism. I’ve no doubt that some of them yearn for the days of the 1970s and comedians like the late Bernard Manning, who was notorious for his racist comedy. But UKIP has also lost tens of thousands of members, who are very much not racist and who have resigned in protest at the direction Batten has taken the party. And what was acceptable in the 1970s is very much unacceptable four decades or so later, especially with young people. But Sargon doesn’t seem to realise this. On the video Logan and his friends remark on how smug Sargon looks when he talks to McCann about his opposition to political correctness and enjoyment of racist jokes. He really doesn’t realise that he’s just done more damage to his campaign and his party.

Sargon really is set on destroying his political campaign and the party of which he is a member.

Logan and his guests recognise this, and so agree at the end of the video that they’re going to have to make the next one about Farage’s Brexit party. They’ve overtaken UKIP in the polls, and so represent a greater threat.
