You guys have no decorum. There’s no level too low to go to.

But Sargon of Akkad has standards! He rants about the alt-right by accusing them of being like “n*ggers”, “f*ggots”, and “k*kes”, and whining that he gets no respect. It’s a spectacular meltdown that couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.

“Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

One can only hope.

    Nah, this is going far and wide — I’m sure there are targets much closer to the regressive community that will be getting an avalanche.

    “Oh no, those nazis I actively court with my shitty alt-lite bullshit are being nazis!”

    Crygon is such a joke, and it’s not even funny.

    “Round the decay

    Comparing an annoying internet troll to the subject of Ozymandes is … yucky. No matter how fallen Sargon of Arkkad may be now, he never had a moment of greatness to begin with.

    I’m assuming the link goes right to his video. I’m not going to screw up my YouTube recommendation algorithms even for some delicious schadenfreude.

  5. John Morales says

    Tabby, the link is at one remove (this blog post is at two) and audio only. Its description links to the source: “Chatting with Sargon of Akkad about The Liberalist Community – Catlin’s Hangout #6

    In passing, I note you expose a downside of recommendation algorithms whereby you dare not access certain content you would otherwise do. Functionally, it’s a form of self-censorship.

  6. says

    It goes to the video of some other alt-right neo-Nazi wackaloon who drew out Calgon of Aaack in a conversation, and Shadrach of Okaythen just went on a tirade. It seems to be getting shared around among the deplorables as reason to hate him.

  8. melonpie says

    I’ve been following Sargon’s oeuvre for a bit and this melt-down was apparently precipitated by his encounter with Richard Spencer. Spencer has been crowing about how he “won a debate” with Sargon. It’s like Asspimple Monster vs Dickwart beast. Hard to cheer for a side.

  9. F.O. says

    The right is usually better than the left at avoid internal squabbling.
    (From my leftie point of view, that’s because the left has long discarded its authoritarian leanings, while the right hasn’t.)

    The alt-right is challenging this: they enthusiastically embraced and defended egocentric and abusive behavior, and reap what they sow.

  10. vucodlak says

    I’m reminded of that awful picture of the two snakes PZ posted a few days ago. Only this time I’m picturing the ass-weasels from that stupid Dreamcatcher movie. Also, I’m smiling.

  11. unclefrogy says

    as for feeding youtube google Et. al with new data points for their suggested video algorithm so they can get to be my gate keeper. I try to be careful at what I look at and where they go otherwise the shit just gets too deep!

  12. Dunc says

    The right is usually better than the left at avoid internal squabbling.

    I’m not convinced that that’s actually true – it’s just that it happens differently. For “the left”, internal squabbling is the default mode – it goes on all the time, and generally doesn’t result in too many casualties (either literal or metaphorical). “The right”, on the other hand, goes for long periods during which they maintain a pretence of unity (whilst constantly eyeing each other suspiciously and fingering their weapons), punctuated by short outbursts of vicious in-fighting which can spill over into violent purges. They’re all obsessed with purity, convinced that they’re the only True Scotsmen, and believe they’re just manipulating all of their other fellow travellers for their own purposes, until they’re no longer useful. They always turn on each other in the end, and usually in fairly spectacular fashion.

  13. says

    RE F.O. @ 12 & Dunc @ 15
    I think part of the problem here is Carl fancies himself on the left, a true classical liberal or some such. As opposed to the extremist SJWs. There’s quite a crowd thinking similarly, hanging out and agreeing with Nazis and then upset at being considered on the right.

  14. lotharloo says

    You can tell YouTube that a particular suggestion is not good by e.g., saying that you are not interested in the channel.

    I’m not convinced that that’s actually true

    Yeah, I don’t think that’s true at all. It wasn’t long before the Tea Party, fresh off their initial electoral successes, descended into factional infighting in their mad scramble for political power, and any semblance of peace in the far right was merely because they were too insignificant and disparate to get in each other’s way.

    That was until the recent rise of the alt-right, when they all began to discover each other during the Trump campaign and unite under the common cause of getting him elected. Again, it didn’t take long for things to begin to disintegrate once they were forced to ask themselves “What next?”

    And let’s not forget that the Republican Party can barely keep the government open, even though they control both chambers and the executive.

    Trolls will be trolls, and I doubt a movement of trolls can remain united for very long, unless a leader far more capable than Trump comes along.

    That’s why G*d made such things as private browser windows and proxy servers! … Or would have, had kind software developers not beaten H** to the punch.

    leerudolph @21

    I’ve seen the “G*d” asterisk thing before (and am still taken aback when I see it in the comments on an atheist website), but I’ve never seen “H**” before. Is that “Him/Her”? If so, why does a pronoun also need to be asterisked?

  18. says

    @Tabby #22

    Because reasons. Don’t want to infuriate gawd. I’ve only generally seen in being used by Jewish people. Probably something similar to why you aren’t supposed to graphically represent Muhammad. Don’t look at the directly lest ye be smited.

    Or some stupid bullshit like that.

    The sunnite ban on depictions is very recent, just a couple of centuries although they pretend it has been thus forever, liars being liars.

    If you read “The Memoirs of God” by Mark S. Smith, you will find a guide to fragments in the OT that predate monotheism, when El was just one of many Caananite gods. Sometimes you see his feet ( in a context very similar to descriptions of the boss god of bronze-age Ugarit),
    sometimes you literally wrestle him.

    If you read the “Johannes Cabal, necromancer” stories (recommended, genuine humor) you will see that both Gawd and Mr. Satan are avatars of our old acquintance N’yar-lath-hotep.
    so it is OK to use whatever place-holders you want for his/her/it’s name.

    2) Chigau #11,

    Well I’ve just been sick in my mouth. Anyone else? Anyone? Anyone? Imagining Nazi/quasi-Nazi/Nazi-adjacent appeaser jello wrestling causes unrest.

    3) I shall bear the entirely self-inflicted and rather minor misfortune of Mr Benjamin with fortitude and equanimity. I shall also require praise for my stoicism during what is, clearly, a very emotional and trying time. Thank you.


    * This really is the operative part.

  22. melonpie says


    Would you cheer if they were jello-wrestling?

    Ugh, no. I would cheer for their shutting up and disappearing from public view.

  23. chigau (違う) says

    Sorry about the jello thing.
    Louis, may I offer you a very large *HUG*?
    How’s things?
    Do you know about Caine?

  24. Louis says

    Hi Chigau,

    Nothing to be sorry about. Well, it’s not as n– n– n– n– n– n– n– n– no– no– no– not as n– nasty as something I just thought up, sir. [/Monty Python]

    Things are….things (busy, health things, but life is otherwise life and generally preferable to the alternative). All hugs gratefully received and returned with additional hugs. :-)

    I haven’t heard about Caine…{braces self}


  25. Louis says

    Hi Chigau,

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. It is, in the words of Renton from Trainspotting, “A shite state of affairs”.
