VidCon Apologizes To Anita Sarkeesian, Says Sargon Of Akkad Was There To Intimidate
VidCon
(Last Updated On: June 27, 2017)

Hank and John Green, the heads over the annual VidCon event, finally broke their silence about the events that transpired at this year’s convention, where content creator and feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian called out fellow YouTuber Sargon of Akkad, using profane language and labeling him as a “garbage human”. The organizers of VidCon acknowledged that the language was strong, but they decided to apologize to Sarkeesian for having to face off against Sargon and other YouTube critics, claiming that those in the front row were there to “intimidate”.

In a Medium post about the rules and regulations of VidCon, they noted that Sarkeesian did violate their “No Harassment” rule by specifically pointing out and harassing Sargon of Akkad, who was sitting in the front row at a panel she was on, but they went on to say that it was understandable due to a “wider” context and for the fact that it looked like the audience members were there to “intimidate” the panelists…

“This year, we had a contingent of attendees (some who paid, some who snuck in with fake passes) who had been either perpetrators of this harassment, or had, for years, watched as the outrage they cultivated resulted in followers doxxing, harassing, intimidating, and even threatening the lives of the creators on these panels.

 

“It is difficult to imagine that this group of people (who are aware that their channels have been base-camps for years of harassment of some of our panelists) did not realize that their arriving early to fill up the three front rows of a panel was going to be intimidating. In any case, it looked like intentional intimidation to most people in attendance, and the panelists were understandably on edge throughout the discussion.”

For those of you who have not seen the video, it’s all over YouTube. You can view the video from Barbara4u2c below to get an idea of what happened.

Hank Green specifically talked to the panelists after the session ended, explaining that she had violated their policy regarding harassment, but that he understood there was a “broader context” that he was “blissfully ignorant” of until that weekend.

According to the post…

“[Hank Green] apologized to her for not having been more aware of and active in understanding the situation before the event, which resulted in her being subjected to a hostile environment that she had not signed up for.”

VidCon organizers also warned that they would not tolerate YouTubers collecting footage to criticize others on the panels or generating “outrage” based on what’s said. They mention…

“This is a difficult situation to build policy to alleviate, but we ask that all of the people involved consider the power of our actions and statements both online and in the real world. But one specific note, if people attend VidCon to collect footage to later use in videos that criticize not just ideas, but focus the outrage of their followers on individuals, they will not be welcome back.”

According to Sargon of Akkad, he was never contacted by Hank or John Green about the incident, and they only conferred with Anita Sarkeesian for her side of the event.

VidCon wasn’t the only one paying lip-service to Anita Sarkeesian after she verbally attacked Sargon of Akkad over the weekend. Polygon and the Daily Dot, among others, also published pieces defending Sarkeesian and claiming that #GamerGate and the alike were to blame.

Polygon’s article states…

“[Sargon of Akkad/Carl Benjamin] has made his name dismissing her feminist documentary work such as Tropes vs Women in Video Games, which details the cultural biases of video games. He is a hero for many in the hate group GamerGate, a rough assemblage of misogynists, racists, conspiracy theorists and right-wing ideologues who have spent years harassing Sarkeesian and anyone who publicly supports her work.”

 

“[…] Sarkeesian says it’s clear that Benjamin and his entourage were there to intimidate her. “He had come with several others and together they took up roughly the first two rows. Of course he wanted to be seen, and I knew, because he was filming the panel, that he would use it to harass me and potentially drive harassment to my co-panelists, so I used the first question as an opportunity to let them and the audience know what was happening.”

Sargon of Akkad was on the Joe Rogan show on Monday, June 26th, 2017, and had mentioned to Joe that the media would defend Sarkeesian after the events transpired.

The articles defending Sarkeesian’s behavior, and VidCon organizers John and Hank Green apologizing to her has enraged some members of the gaming community and content creation community, with many calling out the Greens for employing double standards.

With outlets and organizations adopting one-sided reporting and biased coverage of the event, some believe that it will only continue to mobilize the outrage that led to events like #GamerGate.

    One thing I still don’t understand.
    “Exceptions”
    “Case by case basis”
    What could possibly have been the justification for the supposed exception given to her?
    What was the “special case” here?

    Because to my knowledge, no details were given on this. None what so ever were disclosed.

    Did she break the rules? Yes. By your own admission.
    Was she aggressive towards a client? Yes and there is VIDEO PROOF of this.
    Was her outburst accidental? No…
    Was she apologetic about it? No.
    (In fact, she un-apologetically reinforced what she said on public forums later on)
    Did Sargon harass her during her panel? No.
    Was the back history between the 2 of them of any relevance to the Con or the panel taking place at that moment? I wouldn’t know.
    Prior history would be a mystery to most outside the circle of events that goes on between those two.
    Your average Joe has no way of knowing.
    Is there proof to her claims? No explanation has been given on that so far either.
    Were both sides questioned on the nature of this debacle? No.
    Sargon’s side, according to Sargon himself, was completely swept aside.
    This was seemingly one sided.
    There was no public statement addressing Sargon that we know of.

    I understand the nature of the exceptions here and there.
    Someone feigned passes but was accompanied by creators with real passes;
    Someone stealing a bottle of alcohol but under lucid intoxication;
    A child made their way into a private room? etc.
    These are things that people can get by depending on context. That I understand.

    But this? It boggles my mind.
    During a HARASSMENT Panel.
    Note: Harassment.
    A harassment panelist singled out a paying customer, badmouthed and talked smack about him, and then security proceeded to expel him (essentially robbing him) and the Con proceeded to APOLOGIZE to the harasser in this situation.
    Again, for someone outside this circle, this is all one sees.
    A professional puts their personal issues aside and does their job.
    The exception should be ONLY if provocation occurred.
    And no provocation took place.

    The correct procedure in this case, as I see it, would be to deem the person who did this unfit to speak on a panel of harassment again.
    And no longer invited to speak at the Con at best, or receive a ban at worst.
    Apologize to the person who was singled out, maybe offer a reparation of sorts.
    And hope to GOD they don’t sue you.

    To make an exception to all that is puzzling.
    But what takes the cake is the one sided apology, and the ban of the person who was subject to the badmouthing.
    Why is an apology directed at the unprofessional individual who chose to outright attack someone in the crowd? And un-apologetically at that?

    Why is Anita, why is that specific individual the exception to the rule?
    What justification is there for that?
    What makes her so worthy of the – dare i say – PRIVILEGE – of doing all that and getting away not only unscathed, but receiving an apology on top and even having the audacity to make demands issuing for blacklists to a Con that does not belong to her?

    What was the case Hank?
    What could possibly be the exception here?

  • Melinda Pacificar

    All I saw Anita doing was intimidating others. I do see Anita escalating her abuse and humiliation of Boogie.

    Most of the SJW infected news organizations (CNN, MSN, Washington Post, etc) will ignore a story like this. Maybe half the news stories written on this are taking the typical narrative making the super sexist Anita out to be the victim and Sargon the bad guy by falsifying or take things completely out of context. But the other half are reporting what actually happened, very different from a year ago.

    • Nah, this stuff has been happening for a while, especially since around 2014 when the media’s bias was put out in the open and they actively admitted to running a narrative.

      • Melinda Pacificar

        What is the media who are the journalist? Is it only CNN or The New York Times, are they the only ones who decide whats news, are they the only people with a camera or know how to write? Or can it be anyone with a cell phone? Can it be a YouTuber like Sargon or many others like him?

    Of course they cave in to her side. They are clearly cowards.

    She just started abusing him simply for being there yet they apologise to her because she’s a loud feminist.

    VidCon are cowards.

    “Patreon is investigating YouTuber “Sargon of Akkad” over Anita Sarkeesian VidCon harassment”

    “Benjamin, who regularly makes videos criticizing Sarkeesian and her views, organized a targeted harassment campaign in which his friends and he occupied the first three rows at the panel under the guise of attempting to “engage” with her, though it’s clear their presence was simply meant to intimidate Sarkeesian and disrupt the panel. (You can read more details on what happened at Polygon.)

    F**king liars. They all need to burn.

    Edit: They apparently cleared him two hours later.

    I suspect Sasquatch intentionally singled Sargon out in order to paint herself as a bigger victim. She’s creating even more false harassment to garner more sympathy.

    When I saw the video and read the solution of those two morons, I was pissed as hell. This is in no way acceptable, but it looks like that this is the nowadays standard. Feminists are the holy cow and no one can stand up to them. Yeah… I hope this will end in a bloody war and with that, I mean a real war. I guess it can’t end otherwise, because the situation is way too insane as it should be.

    Let there be blood and see how the people react.

    • Did you expect any different though?

      I mean, since when have companies/businesses EVER went against the Holy Vagina religion of feminism?

      It’s been almost 20 years of constant kowtowing-in-fear to feminism. And it’s going to continue until the white-knights, manginas, cucks and gynocentric morons are erased from existence.

      • Galbador

        It is just a joke at this point.

    • Angi Hillin

      80% of people who believe in equality refuse to identify as feminists. When I talk to anyone that claims to be a feminist and seems like they have any brain whatsoever I point that out and ask them “Why would a movement that did nothing but gain followers for over 50 years suddenly be abandoned by people in droves in less than 15?”

      The MEDIA and some idiots THINK feminism is the “holy cow”, but the populous is mostly against it. Those that aren’t don’t care about it anymore. About 8% believe feminism is worthwhile. Let those numbers bolster you.

      • Your numbers sure look promising, but reality seems to tell a very different story.

        You claim that 80% of people who believe in equality refuse to identify as feminists, and “the populous is mostly against” feminism right?

        If that’s the case, then why are the following issues still being swept under the carpet and not being brought up?

        1. Biased law courts against men in divorce, crime, family and child custody courts

        2. Advocation to ending male genital mutilation (circumcision)

        3. True equality parenting and custody in divorces in the family court

        4. Addressing male suicide rates

        5. Argue to include forced envelopment into rape laws (where a female puts her vagina onto a man’s penis without his consent) for equality

        6. Make an effort to tell the truth, criticize and condemn what the movement (feminism) has become

        7. End that myth known as the gender “wage gap” and “pay gap”

        8. Acknowledge that Affirmative Action clearly discriminates against Caucasian males in academia and the workplace

        9. Raise the issue that girls/women have a distinct advantage in college enrollment and are graduating in higher numbers than boys/men

        etc.

        And let’s not forget, feminism is a billion-dollar industry. I think that might indicate that not as many people are actually against feminism like you claim they are.

        And before you use the excuse of “oh but the equality people have busy lives, they cannot put all their efforts in fighting feminism”, that’s kind of irrelevant if we go by the claim that “the populous is mostly against it”. Because if it really was the “populous”, then we should be seeing a significant pushback against feminism. But we aren’t. Instead, everyone is still kowtowing to feminism and most women do not speak out against it.

        So words are useless. Until I see action, I’m going to call b*llshit on your statement.

        • Angi Hillin

          There’s “refuse to identify as feminists” and “advocates”. Those two groups do not necessarily coincide. I refuse to identify as Republican or Democrat and I don’t go around marching in front of their buildings. “Everyone” is not kowtowing to feminism. The media is and a bunch of mostly women that do not have day jobs, because MOST people with jobs are too busy to worry about stupid shit like feminism. Until it affects them personally they will not care as much about it. How many men are against feminists, and weren’t before, AFTER they went through a divorce and experienced it first hand? The best thing all of us can do is continue to speak up for men’s rights and out against feminism. Keep a moderate attitude to make our views more palatable than the women running around with vagina hats on.

          Feminism is a billion dollar industry for the same reason. The media makes it appear more popular than it is and the morons that hire people hire dumbasses like Anita thinking they are catering to the populous. Honestly, it’s pretty obvious if 80% of people ADMIT they refuse to be called feminist, that’s a hell of a great step. Now let’s give them a place to go and be vocal about it. Let’s show the universities, the companies, that more and more people are about HUMAN rights. Because that’s what it is. These people aren’t FOR men, they are AGAINST feminism. They’re ripe for plucking if you’ll quit sitting around in your bowl of sour milk.

    Sarkeesian’s youtube channel has likes/dislikes hidden and comments (both video comments and channel comments) disabled.

    No matter how you see it, this is ALWAYS a bad sign for “pro ranter” channels with a few hundred thousand subscribers.

    It’s like a “dead” channel, just a few videos with a person talking, and nothing more. No audience reaction, no discourse, nothing.

    “Hateful” people like Sargon have their likes/dislikes publicly shown and comments are never censored.

    It makes me wonder how Vidcon’s attendance will be next year since people know that if they go, the panelists can insult and harass you and get away with it.

    • I think people will know that it’s only because it was Anita Sarkeesian, the person that no human, creature, deity or any living being in the universe is allowed to even question.

    Lol the polygon article…….they keep going, they didnt forget to call everyone right wing ether.

    I suggest we attend more shows with Anita so she can get “triggered” by our shitlord faces and herass us, then we can call her a master herasser and claim that her videos are base camps for herassers and doxxers.

      Yeah he snuck in there, all Metal Gear Sargon-like.

      Hopefully she’ll start accusing random attendees of plotting against her in secret. You know, she would probably behave like that, if she was actually worried, and not just pretending. She knows she is protected like a princess.

    • Mmm…. I like that plan.

  • Handling e-celebs like her with such kid gloves is worrisome. I doubt that the VidCon boys agree with her ideology. They just don’t want to deal with the fallout that comes along with daring to disagree with her, especially if the media gets involved. The story would get the typical one-sided spin we’re used to seeing with these individuals.

    I’ve been reaching out to some opposing voices to see about organizing a panel for the next VidCon. There is a serious lack of diversity when it comes to the politically-charged panels.

      The game developer for The Last Night seem to have done something similar recently. I can understand where they are coming from but they also should understand that bending over to mob mentality is no way to win a battle. They won’t get too far like this.

      Indeed. Instead of berating Hank and John (they deserve it though), it’s the mainstream media and the feminist ideology that needs to be hammered.

      It’s nothing but authoritarianism, bullying and censorship through fear-mongering but still being able to be the “victims”.

      I’ve been reaching out to some opposing voices to see about organizing a panel for the next VidCon.

      And watch that get shut down by the SJW and feminist whining on social media.

      • It may not even been SJWs that would get that shut down if VidCon is just a bubble for a single ideology. What I do find entertaining about this, is that people like Anita, Wu, etc. do not realize how little influence they have on a large scale. Then again, surrounding yourself with “Yes People” will give you that mindset.

        • Disqusted

          The real problem is the assholes in mainstream keep giving them attention.

          • Not only that, they give attention to them AND support them.

          • Yes, silly me thinking that the media and feminists really care about equality.

          • Disqusted

            Maybe some day people will care about males too, when we have… *drumroll* EQUALITY. *badum tish*

            Equality is a pick and choose buffet for feminists.

        • It may not even been SJWs that would get that shut down if VidCon is just a bubble for a single ideology.

          Well it’s kind of the same thing really because SJWs have set their ideology and rules through fear-mongering for the event, so if your alternative panel is disallowed then that would be because of them anyway.

          It’ll be interesting to see if you are able to implement the opposing voices panel for the next VidCon. I hope you’ll keep us updated on that.

          I’ll leave you with this statement:

          “To see who rules over you, find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

  • Orin

    If there is one thing I hate more than dumb bitches, is white knights and betas. Just looking at these two already tells me they are a bunch of cucks, so this is no surprise they would instead apologize to the one who committed the crime and broke the rules they themselves set.

  • How on earth did these pair of cucks come to the conclusion that Sarkeesian is the victim in this?

    I mean, apologizing to Anita Sarkeesian for attacking and harassing an audience member who was just sitting there and doing nothing? Are you f*cking serious?

    This is just yet another example of why feminism is cancer, but once again all the companies, organizations, institutions, normies and gynocentric idiots will take the side of Sarkeesian and kowtow to the vagina religion.

    What an absolute disgrace. I sure hope people are letting VidCon, Hank and John know what an utter pair of retards they are.

    • ThyPancakeConsumed

      And it comes from where? Families where mom is always right even when she is wrong and son or husband always have to apologize and be nice. Educational system which caters to bullies and snowflakes, where victim with broken bones, destroyed personality and life is always evil, while bullies and snowflakes are always holy. This is what happens when you tolerate existence of and let feminists, liberals and other scum to grow and gain power.

    • nothingtosee

      Its simple. Imagine world is black and white. We are fighting for voice of all oppressed people, we are tolerant and just. The other side is literally hitler.
      We can do no wrong. If we do something seemingly wrong, its because we were provoked. End justifies the means.There are no bad tactics, only bad targets.
      Everything opposite side does is bad. We have all sorts of words we can use to virtue signal how bad they are and how good we are at detecting their badness.
      Never doubt your side. Always trust them.
      Dont ever carry water for other side. Take no prisoners.

      Does it make sense now?

      • tajlund

        That was the perfect summary. Well done.

    • Because it is the easier choice. Imagine what would happen if you had to treat Sarkeesian like everyone else…

      Because true misogynists who look down on women assume that women are so weak and helpless that they must always be the victim, and never the perpetrator.

    • Also, I wonder what Thunderf00t / Phil Mason thinks of this? Judging by the amount of videos he’s made on destroying Sarkeesian, I imagine he would be the first to voice his opinions on it.

      It’s a shame that he had that feud with Sargon and kind of “changed” or “switched sides” recently. He would be enjoying the anti-Sarkeesian stuff right now.

  • Mike Pittman

    They actually apologized to her for harassing an audience member, classic.

  • descent3031

    “Sarkeesian says it’s clear that Benjamin and his entourage were there to intimidate her.”

    To these kinds of people it’s a literal impossibility that someone could be there to discuss differences. It’s pure projection. An asshole like Sarkeesian would never try to engage with Sargon other than to intimidate him (i.e by calling him names from a position of power with no right of reply), so he must be doing the same!

    Fuck these cucks that organised it. Sargon’s money was good enough to take for a ticket, but his very presence allows someone to breach their own rules. If he’s so evil you should have had the stones to blackball him.

    This is what’s dangerous about the modern left in general. They have laws and believe in them, they just don’t believe people are equal before the law. For example, you can’t assault people… unless they’re like a “Nazi” or something. Same rule applies here. If this was woman on woman or man on man they wouldn’t defend the speaker. They judge right not by what was done, but by who it was done and to whom it was done to.

    • nothingtosee

      I feel that this “Sargon was there clearly only to intimidate Anita” argument is very close to asking “What was she wearing?”, when you heard of rape victim.

      Its a bit long shot, but not that far.

        Sarquasar is clearly the only real content creator and human being at VidCon. That’s why it was such an easy decision for VidCon to spit on everyone else and prostrate before Sasquatch. Everybody else is a “garbage human” to them.

        The entire event only existed for her. The entire world revolves around her. ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY SCAMMING VICTIM.

    • What a weirdly hostile comment. What about all the women who don’t like Anita who paid to be in the front row as well? Or do they not exist because you have to de-person them in order to wage war against the “straight white male”?

Anita was by no means a target and you’re missing 90% of the context here. Furthermore, he didn’t co-opt the panel whatsoever, he was sitting quietly when Anita called him out and started cussing at him.

      I keep seeing feminists make it out to sound like Sargon went there only to troll Anita. In reality, he’s an online video creator who went there to meet up with other online video creators. Which is largely the point of VidCon. Contrary to popular belief, normal people have normal lives. Hard to believe, isn’t it?

      Wanting to have a conversation with Anita (which she has been avoiding/stonewalling this entire time) was just a SMALL PART of him going there. Regular people can’t afford the time and money to travel across the world just to insult people, like Anita and other feminists can afford to from their scamming and playing the victim.

      And from what I saw and heard, he was at the front because there was almost nobody in the audience. There are pictures of tons of empty seats. If you go to a speaking event, and there’s nobody there, why would you purposely sit at the back, far away from the stage? Everyone wants front row seats at everything. It’s NORMAL.

      People like you are so up themselves, they often come up with a single explanation for any given event and are SO SURE it HAS to be the ONLY explanation possible. In reality, the world is more complex than that.

        From experience, I’d say many females have a habit of labelling anything that happens outside of their control/awareness/safe space as being “creepy/stalking/doxxing”.

        I say “females”, because I can’t recall any guys acting the same way. Maybe because guys have to be more responsible for their actions, whereas girls can get away with being naive/ignorant and expect everyone else to cover for them.

      Silly little Isabella, Sargon went thru all that trouble not to sit in front of woman he doesn’t like or as your types say harass her, but to mansplain. Mansplaining is serious business you know. /sarcasm
      Are you seriously this stupid or just went after gender studies in college? Sargon is a YOUTUBER, who makes VIDEOS about people and stuff be it ANITA or be it SOMEONE/SOMETHING else. He went to VidCon to meet, talk and take selfies with others like him. He did not broke single rule, he had every right to sit in front row. Anita Scameesian broke rules, singled out sargon and attacked him, then got his primary twater account hacked by her piss lickers. And don’t give that coincidence word, its not coincidence. People like you or those two losers running vidcon are reason why this world is so corrupt and we all are knee deep in shit. Now go to your safe space. Fucking hate empire snowflakes.

    • Yes, because Sargon of Akkad, being a significant YouTube video creator and personality, obviously went to VidCon to “stalk” Anita Sarkeesian.

      Let’s just ignore the fact that he was meeting up with other creators and artists and attending various different panels as well, like any normal visitor or creator would be doing at the event.

      And let’s completely ignore the fact he paid for his seat at the Women Online Discussion panel, just like any normal visitor would’ve done, only to be singled out and be attacked/harassed for the heinous crime of just sitting there and doing nothing.

    • Angi Hillin

      Arrogant, too. Like anyone actually cares about her THAT much. We may think she’s an idiot, a scam artist, a liar, breaches contracts, and many other things but it’s one thing to sit at home and make a video pointing out her idiocy and quite another to jump through hoops over someone so worthless she has to MAKE UP attacks for the stupid to believe (because only they would EVEN THOUGH IT’S PUBLIC RECORD AND CAN BE CONFIRMED). I’m so sure that Sargon booked a flight from England, flew all the way to America, making it known the WHOLE time to everyone, attended a con aimed at people who do his job, met with other people at the con, ate, drank, took pictures, made up with another VCC to mend bridges….all just so he could pretend to look legit when he stalked Amonkey’s panel (that was conducted in utter secrecy and with background checks on all those who bought a ticket…or not) and QUIETLY “harass” her with his very presence.

      You moron, people who go to those efforts don’t sit quietly and listen, they bring a gun and shoot people. And why is he the ONLY VCC who apparently went to all this effort when others did the EXACT same thing and aren’t being accused of stalking?

            He is actually true SJW in his soul. Guy that actually lives what all this authoritarian SJWs preach.

            Boggie, if he sees stairs inaccessible to wheelchairs builds ramp.
            Authoritarian SJWs destroy the stairs since it might offend people in wheelchairs.

          • RichardGristle

            That’s actually an excellent analogy lol.

            But yeah, I really do think Boogie is a good guy, but he hasn’t gotten the memo that being nice doesn’t win you any wars, and definitely doesn’t win your enemy’s favor, as he harshly found out when dealing with Anita.

            The fact that I believe he’s a genuinely nice person makes it even harder to watch when he tucks away his balls and allows himself to get bullied by rabid SJW scum. School yard 101: being a bitch will NOT keep you from getting bullied.

          • So that’s cowardice then.

          • fnd

            kinda like he’s afraid of losing pounds :^)

        • I don’t follow boogie2988 much at all, but from I remember during the height of GamerGate a few years ago, he was for the most part a fence-sitter. I agree that there are some aspects of him that are SJW-Lite as well.

          • EroBotan

            I assumed he’s a gamergate because he was followed & got retweeted quite a lot by gg people. Your statement that he’s a fence-sitter makes more sense though, he seems to be the kind of guy who will avoid fighting at any cost.

          • The fence-sitting is what I recall, but that was like from just 2-3 videos I watched of his back then.

            If you follow him, then you most likely know better than me.

          • Cyberxion

            Yeah. Boogie’s habit of straddling the fence is due to a pathological desire to fix the world’s problems and to be loved and appreciated for the effort. He feels like it’s his responsibility to intervene, but because he doesn’t want to risk upsetting people he doesn’t bother to take a firm stance one way or the other, and in fact rarely even seems to bother to develop a meaningful understanding of the matter at hand before imposing himself onto it. This shit is selfish of him, but the hell of it is that it’s so deeply rooted in pathology that he’s likely not aware of it.

            He may never be as long as his well-meaning fans continue to encourage it. Even though it obviously takes a serious mental and emotional toll on him whenever his efforts fail, they see it as altruism and compassion and applaud him for it. So he’ll just keep doing it, getting more and more depressed and defeated as he goes and never getting the help that he needs to sort through it.

          • Galbador

            The problem with Boogie is, that he wants to be friends with everyone and have them at their good side. In other words, he has no real opinion when he is getting into a topic, which is so hot like Gamergate. But the thing is, he is afraid of people and talking live to people, which made him an easy target for Anita, who even attacked him after the discussion as he said. He has no balls when it comes to his own opinion and that is the true problem with Boogie. This won’t change, because, according to him and his history, people made him like that including his family.

      • Brad Montague

        Boogie has crippling anxiety issues– to the point he gotten professional help. He didn’t “cuck” so much as he isn’t able to properly confront her. The sad reality is if he did, she’d exploit him and trigger his anxiety purely because she could. I think we can give Boogie a pass here.

        That’s the main key to the totalitarian mindset. It doesn’t stand up under opposition, so you have to shut down all opposition. That’s what the whole control of the language thing that they are constantly doing is about. Most of their views don’t stand up under scrutiny, so the only way to survive is to absolutely control the narrative.

        • Phasmatis75

          Depends on the version of totalitarianism. Might Makes Right or you keep what you kill types of societies are pretty straight forward in their leadership. If you are weak you have no right to complain sort of mentalities.

    • A lot of people said Sargon was garbage during the early half, but I disagree. I think he conveyed most of his points well enough, if only with a slight tinge of vehemence. I think the fallout today even further justifies what he said on Rogan’s show.

        I’m not sure if I could describe social media as a “balmy beachfront” because it’s more of a place of Facebook livestream rapes, trolling, anime tits, and tweets with typos that will exist as typos forever.

      Funny, when you think about it.

        This is actually standard. If you’ll notice it’s been going on for some time with any group they are “allies” with. I mean, how many of these people speaking “on behalf” of others ACTUALLY are members of the others? How many “women of color” are voices of feminism? How many gay men and women? How many of the poor are the voices of the poor? It’s all mostly suburban girls who have no clue what they’re talking about and too much time (and their parents’ money) on their hands and the guys that want to screw them. IF any member of those groups is present, it is a token amount so they can say “SEE!! THIS is our poster minority/disabled/poor person and they love us”. It’s really no different than “some of my best friends are black”.

        Be a part of a group they are “helping” and we’ve seen it years ago. I’m a deaf woman so they’ve been speaking “on my behalf” for years. FYI, they are NOT helping as many have noticed. Quite frankly, I’m deaf, not stupid. In the actual deaf community we are encouraged to be our own advocates and speak up for ourselves, which violates the victim narrative.
