Sargon of Akkad

From informative.place

Carl Benjamin[1] (1979),[2] more often referred to by his Nom de Vlog Sargon of Akkad, is a British YouTuber who identifies as a Capitalist,[3] because he wants to make his own Choices, but believes that Communism and the complete Abolition of Money is inevitable and will come sometime after his Generation, when, he posits, Production will be fully automated.[4][5] "It's something that will come in Future, so we don't need to ... worry about it actually arriving, but we can't rush it, because every Time they try to implement the socialist Revolution, it goes horribly, horribly wrong", he says.[6] Sargon identifies as a classical Liberal,[1] but he has said to Jared Taylor: "I'm not a Leftist".[7] In a Conversation with Steven Crowder in 2017, Sargon said he was on the Centre-Left, not the Right.[8] However, in January 2019, he took another Political-Compass-Test and found out he was on the Centre-Right, according to the Test. He stated he had gone from being on the Centre-Left to the Centre to the Centre-Right.[9] Carl lives in Swindon, UK.[10] He is an Atheist.[11]

Sargon likes to work out at Rockstar Climbing Centre in Swindon.[12]

Weight

During a Livestream on the 14th of April 2019, Sargon said he was "down to like 103" Kilograms and was trying to lose Weight.[13]

Response to Carl from the English Defence League

2017

Sued by Akilah Hughes

On 25 August 2017, a Lawsuit was filed against Sargon by Akilah Hughes after he used some of her Footage on YouTube.[16] Sargon[17] uploaded a 1 Minute and 28 Seconds long Series of Clips,[18] possibly six,[19][20] onto his YouTube-Channel from a Video on Akilah's YouTube-Channel Akilah Obviously, titled "We Thought She Would Win", which was 9 Minutes and 50 Seconds long, and gave it the Title "SJW Levels of Awareness".[18] "SJW Levels of Awareness" contained no Commentary.[21][22][18] "We Thought She Would Win" was a Video Akilah had filmed at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, where Hillary Clinton and her Team were headquartered during the United Statian presidential Election on the 8th of November 2016. On the 19th, Akilah became aware of "SJW Levels of Awareness" and issued a Takedown-Notice.[18]

2018

Launches Movement for Liberalists

On 9 January 2018, Carl announced that he was launching a Movement for Liberalists, with the stated Goal of opposing Discrimination based on "Race, Gender, Sexuality or Lack thereof".[23] Explaining where he came up with the Idea of the Liberalist-Label, he said: "If someone who promotes Feminism is a Feminist and someone who promotes Socialism is a Socialist and someone who promotes Islamism is an Islamist and someone who promotes Fascism is a Fascist, then someone who promotes Liberalism must be a Liberalist".[24]

Speaks at Portland State University

On the 31st of May 2018, Carl spoke with Peter Boghossian at Portland State University. As the Event was just starting, someone pulled the Fire-Alarm to try to derail it. They eventually had to leave, at the Request of Campus-Police, but then went back in. During their Talk, Peter and Carl condemned the University's Bias-Response-Team,[25][26][27] which Carl describes as "a progressive Version of the Police of Vice and Virtue".[28]

Facebook-posts that "apparently there is a 'plot' against" him

On 6 June 2018, Sargon Facebook-posted that he believed Jean-François Gariépy, Metokur and Others were conspiring against him. JF published a YouTube-Video stated that the Accusation was false and that he thought Sargon "got fooled by some of" his "Information-Team", asking him to "please withdraw" the Accusation[29] and challenging him to show his Sources.[30]

Quotes

Alt Right

  • They don't care that the SJWs are ruining everything. They ... don't care.[31]
  • [T]he Alt Right is just a Mirror-Image of the progressive Left. They think that Race, Gender, Sexuality, these are all legitimate Vectors by which the State and Society should command the People within it to do Things.[32]

Donald Trump

  • I mean, i'm not even sure that Trump's a Racist, you know, i just think he's a Buffoon.[33]

Fabian Picardo

Himself

  • I would just call myself an english Liberal. I'm for Enlightenment [and] individualistic Liberalism.[34]
  • I'm a Forces-Brat. For anyone outside of Britain who doesn't know what a Forces-Brat is, that's someone who was raised in a Military-Family. I was raised on Military-Camps.[35]
  • Like, my Father was a serving RAF member.[36]
  • [M]y Grandfather on my Father's Side was Black. He came over from an Island called St. Helena and was obviously the Descendant of Slaves.[38]

Israel

  • Because Israel already exists. If this was a Plan on the Table, "Why don't we do this?", i would say: "No, that's a bad Idea". But unfortunately, i'm not, there's Point in going back to -- what was it? -- 1947 or something. This is something that has been in Existence for, what?, 80 Years [or] whatever it is. I just don't see the Point in, it's not a relevant political Issue, is it?
    • Answering the Question: "Why doesn't Sargon criticise Israel?"[39]

The West

  • If we do think that maybe the West actually figured Morality out better than the Rest of the World, we do have an Obligation to keep that going.[40]

Whites

  • I'm not concerned, really, about, like, the Future of the white Race or anything. I don't really recognise a Construct called "the white Race" and that's not something that bothers me.[41]
