Fuck, I can smell her from here. I had no idea this was the lady Sargon said that rape thing to. By the way, Sargon is like the AOC of the free-speech skeptics. I'd only vote for him to see what goofy shit will happen.

Prepare to scratch your eyes out.



Well h's not trying to be a comedian so it's not really a problem.
He literally calls himself an 'Anti political correctness political entertainer' a bunch of times in the radio interview in the 1st post. So being a dull fuck is kind of a problem.

There's a difference between being entertaing, being funny and being a dull fuck.

Is there not?

He is not funny, I agree with most of what he says but he is dull as fuck. Branding himself as an entertainer only inclines me to stop listening to him even faster because I expect something entertaining to be said during the video. He never does, he argues his points, which he does well enough and then he gives out a few of these condescending half laughs once in a while. Most of his videos are bloated with endless recounts of 'he said / she said' or repeating the same arguments over and with a guest opponent. I never make it to the end of his videos. If youtube had an aborted views counter, he would have the most aborted views.

I find him not particularly funny, not completely unfunny and very entertaining but I don't need someone to make me laugh to be entertaining, just an interest in whatever they're saying or doing. I find nature programs entertaining but I don't laugh along with the hyenas.

I think you have no basis for your claim of aborted views other than your own experience and I think the like/dislike ratio of say, Sky News biased interview with him shows that many people agree with me. I also think in the current political climate, he is an important voice, ref: the video I posted... that womans views although absolutely retarded are held by many retarded people.

So it's all pretty subjective, isn't it?

What I've heard from him, I almost all agreed with but I simply can't listen to him for longer periods of time. I think I was subscribed to him on YouTube as my first subscription ever but I could never keep my attention to the end of the videos, so I ended up stop watching them. I think what he does is important and on point but entertaining I find it not. For me it's like my dentist trying to brand himself a oral healthcare entertainer. I have an first rate dentist and he is pleasant, skilled and affordable. I hold Sargon kind off in the same regard. He should just brand himself a political activist from the beginning and now a politician instead of claiming to be an entertainer.

But yeah, I'm just nitpicking about the words entertainer and fan. Overall we probably agree on 90%

I think originally calling him a political activist wouldn't have been completely accurate, he was just a guy on the internet being a critic of the things 3rd wave feminists and SJW types were doing in Universities and culture (gaming specifically) and a lot of people were looking for that... but as time moved on he was getting flak from both sides, people who thought he should have a more active political role and others who felt he was getting out of his lane and too big for his boots ... so he took the first group up on their criticisms and tried a lot more real world activism, interviews and joined UKIP as a member, now he's taken this to the next stage and is running for a political position so effectively now a politician.

But it still has a lot of that core of being an internet shitposter so he's very different to most other politicians and he's found in Gerrard Batten a political leader who will give him free reign to say what he wants, so this proves UKIP was the right choice for him. When he told the media that he doesn't care if they were offended by the Jess Phillips tweet, you could see the colour drain out Battens face but to give him his credit, he's for the most part stuck to his guns and said "take it up with Sargon if you have a problem"

I don't even fully agree with him on Brexit but we need people like this right now, we have ordinary folk getting convicted of telling offensive jokes in this country ... it's time we put our foot down and told these authoritarian pricks to get fucked.
