Prominent radical centrist hate leader Sargon of Akkad, who once told the Neon-Nazi leader Andrew Anglin that he agreed that Hitler never did anything wrong, has been banned from Patreon.
Akkad, also known as Carl Benjamin, is considered a “hero of the people” for his hardline centrist positions, and people often paint pictures of him.
There are entire segments of London where his picture hangs like a Hezbollah or other Arab hero’s picture.
Furthermore, Jerry Jeff Walker wrote this song about him, which is about when he met Sargon of Akkad at VidCon 2016 and Akkad danced a jig for him.
Sargon was getting over $12,000 a month on Patreon from over 3,000 fans of his radical right-wing centrist agenda.
The sad part here is that if Sargon is banned from YouTube, that is basically the end of the thing.
I think Sargon is a pretentious prick. I do not agree with very many of his positions (though he has agreed with more and more of mine as time has gone by in the last 4 years). But I like the internet, and I want free speech. I like having lunatics like Akkad around. It makes the internet a more fun place.
I don’t support anyone being silenced. Including leftists, of course. But you’ll notice that there aren’t really any leftists. Neon-Nazis are always debating weird libertarians like Akkad, because leftists aren’t the type to go on the internet and defend their positions. I supposed they don’t need to, because they control the entire media. But it is also presumably that they cannot defend their own positions and they are well aware of this fact.
Patreon is the First Domino
MILO was also recently banned fom Patreon, as was James Allsup.
Historically, this is often the first place you get banned, before the dominos start falling with Twitter, YouTube, etc. But Sargon and MILO were both already banned from Twitter.
These are some really milquetoast figures.
We can only expect that Paul Jospeh Watson is next. Then, who knows. Just normie Republicans I guess.
