“Sargon of Akkad (YouTube creator) joins Dave Rubin to discuss Gamergate, feminism, the Regressive Left, and much more.”
I think Carl Benjamin at his base, is one of the good people out there…Which is why I’ve brought some of his videos here, to share.
Based on what I have seen of him…he largely thinks like I do, on social issues…Which is why he frequently acts as a very good surrogate, for conveying my own views…He’s just more crass, than I usually am.
This interview is a good example.
It bothers me, when people with good minds start moving down a bad path:
As I’ve mentioned in the past…It left a sour taste in my mouth, when Carl took an abrupt, 180 degree turn on his stance to stay out of the discussion surrounding Todd Nickerson’s public activities…Trading it for repeated attacks, and misrepresenting what is factually happening…Doing this even in the face of invitation to discuss it with people like us…and apparently ignoring that invitation.
I really, really, really cannot put into words, how much I hate to see a good mind [in a world where we have too few of them], flushing their integrity down the toilet like this.
I was originally very encouraged, by his refusal to join in the mindless onslaught…even though that wasn’t much…But the display of standing up in defiance of people pushing him to do it, was heartening…in the moment, anyway.
Finding him joining in on the rhetoric, only a few weeks later…that was a sign of poor integrity…It was selling out, to mob pressure…
…literally the equivalent, to some of what is being discussed in this interview.
I invite Carl to talk with various “pedophiles” out here [there are quite a number of us]…actually get an understanding of who we are, and why we are doing these types of things…and start representing us accurately, wherever he makes reference to us.
Nobody has to champion our rights and causes…But don’t misrepresent who we are, and what we stand for.
