YouTuber-turned-UKIP-candidate Carl “Sargon of Akkad” Benjamin hits the campaign trail, and it’s going alt-great

I don’t know why I gave him two heads. Sorry.

By David Futrelle

As you may have heard, YouTube shitlord Carl Benjamin — known as Sargon of Akkad, though he’s actually from Swindon — recently made his debut as a candidate for the European Parliament running on the racist UK Independence Party (UKIP) ticket. And it went alt-great, by which I mean the opposite of great.

First “Sargon” — a genuinely terrible person who originally found internet fame as a #Gamergater — got into a bit of trouble when confronted about an old tweet of his suggesting that he “wouldn’t even rape” a certain female Parliament Member; instead of apologizing he responded to questions by calling the MP a “bitch.”

Meanwhile, freelance internet archivists have been digging up recordings of some of the terrible things he’s said over the years on Youtube, like this froth-mouthed rant blaming feminism for Elliot Rodger’s misogyny-fueled murder spree.

And this creepy defense of pedophilia “on a case by case basis.”

https://twitter.com/zei_nabq/status/1049365251320414209

Oh, and Buzzfeed News reported that Mr. Akkad has been sending supporters who want to join his campaign online to a Nazi-infested Discord server.

It’s hard to imagine any of this winning over the voting public, but Sargon’s “bitch” comments are certainly playing well with the internet shitposter crowd.

https://twitter.com/veryangeryapu/status/1119025918616453121

On Gab, his fans are even less restrained.

And YouTube of course continues to be a cesspool. These are comments on a Sargon video defending his defense of his rape tweet and calling the press “dirty smear merchants” — a phrase many of his fans took to be a reference to Jews.

While Sargon of UKIP seems to be a big hit with the shitlords overall, ‘s still on the outs with a lot of alt-righists — at one point he started a feud of sorts with the more overtly Nazi types that involved him sending interracial gay porn to them — and so there are probably more posts out there describing him as a “cuck” than there are calling him a “chad.”

But hey, the campaign is still young, and he could well win over a portion of his neo-Nazi critics with some new unhinged rant.

Too bad for him — but good for the rest of us — that most of his online fans live outside the UK and can’t vote for him.

Fortunately, the EU elections are fairly fringe (somewhat ironically, given the UK’s relationship with itself and the EU, but let’s not get into that absolute mess of ignorance and confusion).

Unfortunately, this gives the new edgelord UKIP more space to move, as it’s not like a General Election (where they get nothing, ever).

Pervesely, it’s the evil anti-democratic EU they (and other anti-EU types, of left and right) hate that gives them the most legitimate platforms, via these elections. I can see Carl of Swindon winning more votes than he ever would running for MP. I don’t see him winning.

That said, it’s not about winning, it’s about continuing the stupid, meaningless-meaningful self-contradictory fuckwit dance of Super Intellect and appeasing the baying seals that are the True Masters of the Universe because they, uh…

I apologize if this strays too far off topic, but this is one of few places I feel safe ranting about this kind of stuff. Some time ago, I made several posts on how frustrating it was that the Das Boot TV series (the new one, not the 1980’s movie), and I compared it to Game of Thrones in how it had a bunch of sexist tropes and an unnecessary rape scene, yet also strong and nuanced female characters. I kept watching Game of Thrones because I felt the rest of the scenes and the stories of the female characters were compelling enough to weigh up for the sexist parts, and it felt like they were at least trying to use the violence as an attempt to criticize the misogyny of the setting, and for similar reasons, I kept watching “Das boot”, hoping that the series would still be able to go somewhere compelling with the remaining female characters.

Now, I’m not sure I should have, because in the next to last episode of the season, the 2018 Das boot goes beyond the usual “gritty HBO show” levels of sexism and straight up into “HOW THE F**K DID THIS GET GREENLIT BY A MAJOR STUDIO?!” territory. I’ll just put up a CW for casual rape and extreme racism in possibly the most misogynistic scene I’ve ever seen on screen before. Because in this episode of the series, the titular German U-boat finds a seemingly empty ship with Russian markings and decide to board. They find out that the ship is manned by people who claim to be refugees from the eastern front but it soon turns out that they are human smugglers, and they also kept a young blond woman as a sex slave on board, in addition to a bunch of starving jews in the cargo hold. What then happens is that a German crewman who’s been teased for being a virgin by the others (in the first episode they visit a brothel but he’s too shy to do it with a sex worker) decide to rape the blond woman to lose his virginity, and it’s not treated as a big deal, because she was already a sex slave when he found her or something. Now, using gratuitous rape scenes to show a villain is evil is one thing, and having the hero rape a woman but not treat it as rape because she’s shown to be secretly into him is bad, but this is on a whole other level. The woman is shown to be tied up and gagged, full of bruises, dirty clothes and she cries for her entire screentime, and there is zero possibility anyone missed that she was a horribly abused victim, yet her rapist is not shown as a bad guy. The woman is accidentally killed by a ricocheting bullet right after the rape through no fault of the guy raping her, and throughout the series, he’s only ever depicted as a poor kid who just falls for peer pressure (despite the rape takes place after the guy who virgin-shamed him said he wasn’t at fault for being a virgin) and in the last scene we see of the rapist, an older crewman sits down with him and shares a sad anecdote on how he accidentally caused an explosion that killed people because he fell into peer pressure and tells the guy to be his own man, and it’s treated like a heartwarming moment of bonding and a simple morality lesson about not caving into the demands of others. After he raped a sex slave, and said woman got zero dialogue and died right after serving her purpose as a plot device to let the guy lose his virginity. I swear, if the filmmakers had replaced her by a blowup doll that gets accidentally deflated by the ricochet literally nothing would change in terms of how the scene was filmed or how the writers treat the guy having sex with the doll.

And I haven’t even mention the even worse scene following it, because while that is happening, a different crewman, Franz, is stumbling onto the starving jews. Only two of them are still able to move, and they briefly mention that they’re the parents of the blond woman who got raped, and then they ask Franz to shoot them to put them out of their misery. And Franz is the “hero” of the series, who up until that point has been portrayed as a good guy trapped on the wrong side, he had a Romeo/Juliet romance with a Jewish woman before ending up on the U-boat and in the previous episodes he’s been shown to try and speak up against his more violent colleagues, and what does he do? He pretty much immediately gives them his gun to shoot themselves with, and it’s treated as a tragic and inevitable act of mercy. So to repeat, two Jews ask a German in uniform to shoot them, then they shoot themselves so our “hero” can still be seen as heroic and not have blood on his hands.

And to top it all off, the female leader of the resistance turns out to be brutal and unhinged to the point that when, in the last episode, she takes a high-ranking German hostage, and he asks her what makes her different from the Nazis, she literally says the only thing separating them is the fact that she’s on the winning side. Like, they literally say the resistance is just as bad as the nazis, and the series ends with the German woman who’s been working with the resistance and been the lesbian lover of their leader decides to betray them and get all other resistance members killed to stop more civilians from being killed by the Nazis hunting the resistance. Granted, she also tells the Gestapo officer who killed the resistance member that she hates him and fight him off when he tries to rape/murder her after realizing she had been working with the resistance, but then she immediately saves him from the wounds she gave him when fighting him off and any attempts by the writers to show how the Nazis were evil or tell a nuanced story just feels offensive to me in the end. The part with the smuggler ship felt like something straight out of an incel fantasy, where a guy rapes a woman who conveniently dies so he won’t face any consequences for his crime, and we’re meant to feel sorry for him, and to repeat again, we see Jews begging a German to shoot them.

The fact that this isn’t some 4chan fan-fiction or something made up by one dude in his basement, but a big-budget TV-series that tons of people from multiple countries worked on and regular mainstream TV-channels thought was worth giving airtime, and seemingly not one of them ever stopped and thought that this content might be horrible, scares me, and I’m worried the fact that this stuff being deemed acceptable in mainstream media is helping alt-right and incel viewpoints become more acceptable in mainstream media.

I just hope I’m not alone in being alarmed by the values presented in this TV-series, it’s really been bugging me ever since I saw it in full.

I used to watch these skeptics’ videos out of sheer boredom and curiosity. What eventually drew the line for me was Dave Cullen (and arguably PJW as well) being a gender policing, anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage shitstain, Sargon’s fans being rabidly anti-Semitic (which makes him and his fans look even more idiotic), and Black Pigeon Speaks shitting on both atheism and the majority Muslim migrants coming to Europe in his videos – he’s no better than, say the majority Muslim Bangladeshis he would hate, who have gone after atheist and secularist bloggers. Would he selectively defend them against atheism, selectively defend the atheists/secularists against the Muslims, or give both a hard time?

@Scanisaurus have you written complaints, or at least convinced people not to watch the show? I’ve heard people complaining of an animated TV series having two of their main PoC characters whitewashed. This animated series came from Italy, so you can imagine the racist motives there.

I’m avoiding it mostly because the show became shit to me, long before whitewashing became an issue for the show. At least with this TV show, many people I’ve regularly contacted are horrified with the new art style because of this. I’d already not recommend people not to watch the TV show up to a certain point, based on things unrelated to race.

Well, at least saying he “wouldn’t even rape” someone implies he knows rape is bad.

That’s something I guess; he’s better than the incels, although that is faint praise indeed.

No, the “wouldn’t even rape” comment is not about rape being bad. It’s the old trope of rape being a compliment on a woman’s attractiveness. It’s straight-up misogyny.

I’m a mod on both Kristi Winter’s and Kevin Logan’s youtube channel.

Once on Kevin’s channel Carl tried to debate both Kristi and Kevin at the same time. It did not go well for Carl.

I didn’t catch much of the stream because I was busy wielding the ban hammer on all the Carl fans and haters who kept saying antisemitic and racist stuff as well as horrible jokes about Carl’s wife’s recent miscarriage.

Kristi is currently building an archive on youtube of the shit Carl did over the years. If you have something, message her the link on her twitter.

As for UKIP getting into the EU parliament?

No chance in hell since Farage founded the Brexit party. Most of the currently active UKIP MEPs (21 out of 24) has switched to the Brexit party. They only have three left!

Farage has name recognition going for him. And he’s a security blanket for the mildly racist granny/grampa contingent of voters.

Carl, and Dankula, are complete unknowns for the vast majority of the population. And the Fail calling Carl a ‘sicko’ and Dankula a ‘thug’ doesn’t help either.

The Fail is popular with the target demographic of UKIP.

Good grief. I’m so embarrassed to be British right now.

No, not British. The Scots and Irish voted to remain, the Scots will secede if they have any sense and the Irish have their own problems, which are mostly England’s fault. The Welsh voted leave, but they did not spawn Jacob Rees-Mogg so I’d still rather be Welsh.

English. I am bloody English, like Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and this guy.

But at least that means I can do something about him! I can’t do anything about Trump, but I can quite possibly email the UK electoral commission, or the police or something, about Sargon of Akkad. And I shall.

Anyway, on behalf of the UK, I apologise for this particular hairless ape, and I’m going to send a strongly worded email right now.

this has been the plan of conmen all along. to try to convince you everyone is bad, so the only people that end up voting are lockstep authoritarians.

not voting because you let conmen convince you not to?

that’s exactly how you end up with Trump.

at least get rid of the Torries first. THEN you can equivocate about who’s left, or hell, run for office yourself. that’s the way democracy is SUPPOSED to work after all.

The usual trajectory for far-right parties in the UK sees them reach a worrying level of power, then fall apart due to infighting. Hopefully UKIP have reached that stage. The situation is slightly unusual, in that Farage’s new party are likely to get more support than the usual splitters. But the way he’s drawn up the constitution of the party, it’s
pretty much his personal fiefdom
, and it’ll probably die when his ego causes him to move on.

I don’t know what Carl’s real motive is here. Does he see this as a chance for power, or is it just a grift?

The thing to remember about UKIP is, it’s entire raison d’etre was served once there had been a vote for Brexit. So it was pretty much abandoned by its founders then.

People like Carl of Swindon and his ilk are rather like children coming across cast off armour after a battle and trying on old helmets and swords.

They can play at being grown ups; but ultimately they have all the potency of those Walt type characters who shop at army surplus stores and walk around playing weekend warriors.

@Moggie:

It’s a grift.

He’s clueless, ignorant, and apathetic.

He’s slowly ageing out of the age range his target demographic (late teen and 20ies edgelord males) is willing to watch, as his birth year is 1979.

Now that his antics have reached national media (e.g. daily fail called him ‘sicko’, channel 4 news really doesn’t like him either) and his usual tactics (just shout down aggressively your opposition) doesn’t work on reporters and makes you even less likeable, he’s become truly unemployable.

He gets his income from his popularity. That has started to wane.

Right now no halfway competent employer will tough him with a ten foot pole.

He used to rake in a lot of money for his antics. He still does. But not as much any more.

And I’m quite sure that he didn’t think about putting some of it away for later.

Following their calamitous showing in the 2017 general election, UKIP is pretty much a busted flush in UK politics. They’ve had no fewer than four leaders since Farage quit after the referendum, most of whom became famous/notorious for reasons other than their stewardship of the party – for instance, the third one (Henry somebody) left his wife for a girlfriend who turned out to be a frothing racist, while the second one’s marked physical resemblance to Adrian Edmondson was gleefully exploited by Edmondson himself, who claimed that he was trying out a new comedy character but wasn’t sure whether or not he was especially convincing.

And now under Gerard Batten they’ve gone full-on racist/Islamophobic, forming alliances with people and picking Parliamentary candidates that even Farage wouldn’t touch. Which, given the kind of people that he actually did choose to associate with, is saying something. It’s worth noting that Batten, far from condemning Carl Benjamin’s comments, has been vigorously defending him.

So I’m pretty confident that they’ll be walloped by Farage’s Brexit Party at the EU elections, hopefully to the point where they fail to pass the threshold for getting any MEPs at all.

Must be a great day in British history when a real political party actually puts up as candidates a pair of obnoxious internet dipshits known primarily by stupid self-aggrandizing pseudonyms. I look forward to the candidacies of xXxKillLORD6669xXx and TheGalaxyBrainGamer.

Watching Kristy and Kevin Logan break down the press conference was surreal. It’s obvious that Benjamin has some serious baggage when it comes to the stuff he’s said on Twitter, but he’s still trying to do the Trump thing and intimidate the press. I have a feeling Carl will be in for a rude awakening on that score, because the British press is not as gormless and access-obsessed as the American press. They don’t have illusions of being Woodward and Bernstein; those were drilled out of them by umpteen Rupert Murdoch mergers.

Carl also lacks the honed swagger that Trump’s been channelling for decades. He just comes off like if the smug host of a WWII documentary got really whiny about video games.

Speaking of video games, I got the first half of my 7th Guest Let’s Play recorded. I’m going to finish it up either tonight or tomorrow night and do some sound editing to remove lip smacks, but I’ll keep my occasional ers and ums as the pacing allows it to be a little more conversational and “do this, do this, let’s go here.” I’ve also got some supplementary images to include. As I mention in the recording, I had to attempt the recording about 5 or 6 times after my cheap headset mic sounded terrible and OSB had problems recording the video on the game window, but I finally ironed things out and used my USB mic which sounds a lot better.

So stay tuned, folks!

@rv97: Thanks! I did some research at TV Tropes and found this:

Unfortunate Implications:

There are accusations of racism in the original Italian dub and one of the English dubs for the episode ”Miss Magix” where a dark-skinned girl is in tears because her hair was magically turned from straight to an afro. The characters around her react with disgust, amusement and sympathy, but it’s pretty clear her afro is supposed be viewed as unattractive. Not helping things are fact that the previous scene has Stella’s straight blonde hair being fawned over. 4Kids Entertainment seemed to have realized the implications of this since their version has it so that the girl accidentally cast a spell that made her voice higher pitched and Stella’s hair isn’t being fawned over.
Many believe that Musa and Riven’s relationship is abusive, and that there is a reason that it ended.

It’s back and arguably worse with an eighth season (currently only available in Italian), because of two of the main characters being whitewashed. I think the series went to shit for me since Season 5, as Nickelodeon didn’t seem to care for the show’s world building and character development IMO (they had part of the authorship rights to Seasons 5 and 6 of the series).

He’s a nobody who managed to catch the right reactionary wave (GG) that pushed him into youtube stardom.

But the vast majority of people had no clue who he is before he was announced as a UKIP candidate.

He has raked in a fair amount of cash so far, but I wouldn’t bet on there being much left.

Hence this desperate ploy to remain relevant.

The original 1981 movie (and the original TV series, which is essentially a significantly extended cut) doesn’t bear even the tiniest resemblance to the description above.

My thoughts exactly, the shy doofus raping a sex slave and continuing being portrayed as just a shy confused boy rewarded with a pep talk afterwards, the resistance leader literally telling a german officer the only difference between them is that the resistance is on the winning side, and Jews asking germans to shoot them in a mainstream TV-series that got greenlit by multiple studios all feels like an insane joke, but it’s real.
@rv97

@Scanisaurus have you written complaints, or at least convinced people not to watch the show?

None in my vicinity ever considered watching the show in the first place, but the few reviews I have seen online have been kind of alarming. From the reviews on IMDb the series actually got a 7.5 out of 10 score, several German TV awards and people praising it for it’s “realism” and those who didn’t were complaining that the series was pandering to SJW’s?!! because it featured female characters, never mind the fact that all said female characters were either there to show their boobs, get raped and die right afterwards, or part of a bad love triangle . Seriously, there is a lesbian romance between a female german and the female resistance leader, but the resistance leader is shown to be an unhinged and drug-addicted maniac who ends up killed thanks to her lover betraying her after thinking she’s gone too far, and added with the casual rape and killing of the Jewish refugees, this is not a progressive show!

I feel like I’m insane for being the only one who’s actually watched the full show and coming out thinking it’s the most misogynistic thing I’ve ever seen whilst everyone is either singing it’s praise or saying it was bad because it was too progressive. I’m actually thinking of posing a negative IMDb review, but at the same time, I’m worried that if I start a throwaway account, it won’t stay a throwaway and I’ll get sucked in wasting tons of time on writing too long post on every single movie I see (I’m already having trouble restraining myself here).

I’m also a bit worried of getting nasty replies from fanboys and anti-SJWs, and I’m wondering if anyone here has any previous experience with IMDb and can tell me weather people can PM other users or write comments on their reviews there?
