My views on the Syrian situation coincide with those of Sargon in his vid below, but they are not derived from Sargon's vid below. This is an important distinction to understand. Jordan Owen made this genre of distinction clear years ago in a video wherein he said that the immigration situation exists independently of what white supremacists/alt right race realist manosphereans have to say about immigration. Mr. Owen is also extremely clear on the fact that he holds the alt right race realists in the exact same light in which he holds SJWs, unlike Sargon, who makes one or two videos condemning the alt-right in principle, yet is still willing to uncritically entertain them on his streams. That is why, as far as I am concerned, Jordan Owen>>>> Sargon of Akkad.
It is, admittedly, not difficult to >>>> Sargon of Akkad. Truth be told, any time spent watching a Sargon video is time wasted, time that would have been much better spent watching a video from Stacy Burke. Sargon is just an armchair bloviator whose day job is being a Ronnie and Reggie Kray imitator...only Sargon forgets to turn Ronnie and Reggie Kray off when he turns on the mike. Ms. Burke, on the other hand, is a United States Air Force Veteran, a former adult performer and a bondage model. She was a girlfriend of the legendary Hugh Hefner, until Hef found out she had done bondage modelling and then ended their relationship. That makes Hef, for all the liberal values he espouses in Playboy, as much of a bigot as Steve Bannon and Richard Spencer. I will still love Playboy's special Hot Housewives and Girlfriends editions, but, as far as I am concerned, Hef has less class than the late, great Al Goldstein.
What is more, after nearly a decade of being a loyal housewife, albeit one with character (which, in my opinion renders her even more attractive than the sweet, innocent performer she played on Kink.com/Cybernet Entertainment a decade ago), Ms. Burke is going through a nasty divorce, her husband dumping her, forcing her to scramble to rearrange her finances and revenue stream in order to make ends meet. She works at least two jobs and has a Gofundme, which has gained her the most vicious social media opprobrium from certain producers who are actual misogynists.
Unlike Sargon and Kraut and Tea, Ms. Burke does not make video after video, stream after stream, whinging like a special snowflake over "demonetisation." Instead, she shows true entrepreneurship and actively seeks out opportunity. That is why I will always have far more respect for Ms. Burke than I will for Sargon and Kraut and Tea, why I will always regard time spent on a Sargon/Kraut and Tea vid time I could have better spent on a Stacy Burke vid.
So, now, onto Sargon's recent Syria vid.
Long story short, Sargon says that there is no clear evidence that Assad launched the chemical weapons attacks and points out that removing a Middle East strongman has often led to the rise of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS. This stands to reason. This is also not a unique Sargon discovery. The above video was made on 15, April 2017 (when real Englishmen remember the tragedy of Hillsborough, as Kevin Logan did, which is why, despite our vast differences, I will always have more respect for Kevin Logan than I ever will will for Sargon. In a recent vid, Sargon professed to preferring his countrymen to others. His video on Kelvin Mackenzie, The Sun and Hillsborough is, his professions regarding preferring his own notwithstanding, still to be made.)
This article by Esprit de Corps magazine's Scott Raymond Taylor, making many of the exact same points Sargon made in the above video, came out on 10, April 2017, the exact same day that this column by Pat Buchanan, hitherto an uncritical Trump/Bannon supporter repeating, Pavlovian-style, Five O'Clock Follies talking points such as "deep state." As with Mr. Taylor, Buchanan points out just about everything that Sargon would later point out several days afterwards. The difference is that Buchanan ascribes Trumps' actions to his usual bogyemen, McCain and Graham, which constitutes a study in confirmation bias, and in something being halfway right and halfway wrong independently of who says it. In terms of confirmation bias, Buchanan ignores the role of General Mattis, long ago described as "a Feminist Marine" who "gets his kicks killing male chauvinists" by Fred Reed who, unlike Mattis, has the Purple Heart. Nearly two decades ago, the late warrior-philosopher Colonel David Hackworth identified McCain as a "war junkie" who "like [then-Secretary of State Madeleine] Albright, has seen few wars that didn't push his buttons." Yes, McCain loves war. That does not mean he was the impetus of, or that he even played any significant role in, Trump's decision to Tomahawk Sharyat, especially not when McCain is a longtime enemy of Trump while Mattis, Trump's chosen man, is as much a lover of war as is McCain.
That being said, his inveterate, obsessive dislike for McCain and blatant sectarianism aside, Buchanan served in the Nixon and Reagan White House while Sargon a) was not born or b) was still looking up his teacher's dress. This means that Pat Buchanan has decades more of foreign policy experience than Sargon has. As for Mr. Taylor, he has reported directly from the FRY and the Middle East, being kidnapped, held hostage and tortured by Iraqi partisans after the 2003 invasion. A genuinely rational person would see that Messrs Buchanan and Taylor know more experentially about what they are talking about than does someone who gets his information simply by whinging about headlines and first sentences of Guardian articles and the CNN. In other words, the fact that what Sargon says about Syria in the above video makes sense is largely besides the point since people with decades and more up-front-and-personal experience in these matters have already spoke before him. Sargon is not particularly right about Syria. He is just repeating what others have said.
Nevertheless, Sargon's video above is not entirely uninteresting. For one thing, it has an extremely sharp change of tone. In the above video, Sargon reverts to true skepticism, admitting that he does not have all the answers with regards to Syria. This constitutes an epic Fate of the Furious-style 180 from his video below wherein he, much in the manner of Kraut and Tea, Vee and Freedom Alternative, concern-trolls and virtue signals about Canada, a country which he, much in the manner of Kraut and Tee, Vee and Freedom Alternative, has never been to. This latter fact is something you might not have guessed from his prognosticating and prophesying like Moses with and M.D. and PhD. on things Canadian.
Now, in real life, Sargon's video above was summarily debunked by the following video from Wooly Bumblebee, a superb artist in her own right who honchoes Anti-Intellectuals and who is also promoting this rad new site AkkadianTimes.com.
Wooly is awesome, but that is not the reason she trumps Sargon on matters Canadian. Just as with Esprit de Corps' Scott Raymond Taylor on things FRY and Middle Eastern, Wooly, unlike Sargon, has actually spent time in the AO in question when it comes to things Canadian. Wooly has hands-on expertise in matters Canadian. Sargon, on the other hand, merely sounds off like he has such expertise, but he does not. This renders his admission that he does not have all the answers regarding Syria a sharply executed about-face.
Said about-face, however, does not constitute a Damascene moment on the part of Sargon. A little bit into his first vid above, he whinges about President Trump and Ivanka Trump with regards to Syria. This, too, ostensibly seems like a Damascene moment on the part of Sargon who, in the following stream with Kraut and Tea and hangers-on, claimed to have the ear of President Trump and Steve Bannon.
I can see how contrasting the stream immediately above with Sargon's Syria video, in isolation from all his other pronuciamentos of late, would lead one to think that Sargon has been reconverted from declaring Vadim Newquist and Spinosauruskin "Suppressive Persons" from which the YouTube anti-SJW gods-in-their-own-minds community must "Disconnect" back to "skepticism." The thing is, the videos in question were not handed down to Sargon on Mount Sinai in complete isolation from everything else. Far from it. Instead, they chronologically sandwich the following video wherein Sargon declares that "campus free speech trumps access to abortion" and that "the right is not currently in power."
(In the interests of disclosure, I am not a proponent of abortion. Except in the states of Alaska, Delaware, Montana and Oregon, every person who lives long enough in the West will pay some form or other of sales tax, be it a State/City sales tax in the US, be it the VAT in Britain, the EU and Australia, be it the GST in New Zealand and Canada (on top of Provincial sales taxes in some Canadian Provinces.) Abortion tends to put a dent in that sales tax revenue, which increases the necessity and heights of things like income taxes, meaning people have less discretionary funding to put back into the economy.)
Long story short, the video immediately above demonstrates that Sargon is aware of the negative feedback he is getting for being, much in the manner of Kraut and Tea, Fritz Tobias, Richard Hartenberger, Josez Weiszl, Anton Brunner and Franjo Tudjman, a willing executioner of the alt-right. Sargon merely poo-poos and downplays the significance of the alt-right race realists, in stark contrast once again to Jordan Owen's repeated forceful and unambiguous condemnations of the alt right race realists. Sargon's spin control/face-saving and entirely insincere and unconvincing interim video immediately above strongly suggests that his professed, verbose "return to skepticism" in his Syrian video all the way above is merely an extension of the damage-control exercise initiated in the interim video immediately above.
Sargon's words on Syria and Trump in the video all the way above have merit in and of themselves. Most of them were first written by the far-more-experienced-on-this-issue Scott Raymond Taylor and Pat Buchanan five days before Sargon publicly spoke on the issue. Sargon's harsh words regarding Trump, specifically that Trump did this to boost his ratings, however, in no way constitute a change of heart regarding Trump and the alt-right on the part of Sargon. Rather, they are Sargon behaving like Hermann Göring at Nürnberg, blaming Hitler for the situation he was now in.
The first video in this entry, in other words, is nothing more than a strategic butt-covering for Sargon.
