Carl Benjamin (Otherwise known as SargonofAkkad), is a British political YouTuber who recently joined UKIP in order to try to push the party in a more of a liberalist direction. Of cause, this pissed of some of the higher-ups in the party as having YouTubers saying controversial things is something the party has not experienced before.

The plot to try to get SargonofAkkad kicked out of the party:

 

Ever since Sargon applied to join UKIP, YouTuber Mauritian Struggle been unhappy with the idea of him being part of the party and instead of being democratic and trying to argue why Sargon is bad with the membership of the party, he has been trying to use his insider status in the party to get Sargon Undemocratically thrown out of the party.
His main attempt to get Sargon thrown out of the party involves, Getting together a bunch of clips of things Carl Benjamin has said (Including about “Undermining our leader”, “infiltrating and subverting the party” and “couple of adverts from people who are associated with him”) as “as he doesn’t have a fucking clue about what he his talking about”. In order to “show it to the leaders” and has shared them with the ”higher up’s”.
Mauritian Struggle has also claimed that Carl Benjamin “kind of is fucked” and that is not “looking good for him” and that Sargon is not happy.

Why doesn’t Mauritian Struggle want Sargon in UKIP?

Mauritian Struggle dislike of Carl Benjamin is mainly around the fact he thinks that Carl will form a faction in UKIP and on top of not liking the ideological of that faction (Liberalists), he fears it will cause a split in the party.
This appears to come from Mauritian Struggle support for Gerard Batten (current leader of UKIP), which makes this whole attempt to kick Sargon out sound very undemocratic.

The potential reason why Mauritian Struggle has so much access to higher up’s in UKIP?

Update note: Mauritian Struggle has denied ever writing for Kipper Central.

As discussed easier in this article, Mauritian Struggle got together a bunch of clips of thing Sargon has said. Mauritian Struggle says that “the comment that he (Sargon) made on a stream with Kevin Logan”.
Yesterday, Elliot Lake (UKIP Students Media Officer and Treasurer at Kent UKIP Students) made an opinion piece for the pro-UKIP website, Kipper Central which included a video that mostly was composed mostly of clips from the “Persuading Kevin Logan to Join UKIP” stream, this would suggest that Mauritian Struggle and Elliot Lake are the same person and he is the insider who cares more about persevering the leadership of the party rather than allowing for democracy to risk that.

If Mauritian Struggle is so scared of democracy, he should join the communist party as that is where someone like him belongs.

The current conservative government might appear to be incompetent but one thing they have been very effective at is using both left and right wing politics, in order to take bring forward plans that would take away rights from both sides and do so in a way that would make those people too scared to protest against them.

How the Tories used the right wing as cover to take away freedoms?

When trying to convince the right wing to have their rights taken away, the conservatives have been quick to blame freedoms for causing terrorism and ramp up domestic spying. Of cause, things like the government allowing ISIS fighter to return to this country shows that the government might not be truly honest with fighting terrorism, as allowing people back who have fraught against this country is dangerous and a massive terrorism risk but without terrorist attacks the government would not have as many excuses to crack down on freedoms.

How the Tories used the left wing as cover to take away freedoms?

In order to convince the left wing to ignore attacks on freedoms, the government has started to talk about stopping hate speech and “abuse” online. This takes advantage of the fact that a lot of people on the left think that so-called hate speech is not free speech and should be banned.

In reality, the whole “hate speech” thing is just a ploy by the government to be able to censor political opinions that the Tories dislike and be able to do so while keeping a good image.

What about the future:

Well, there are perfect excuses on both sides of the political spectrum to take away the right to protest. On the left you have the protecting women from harassment when receiving an abortion angle (Just make the law cover disallowing protests in a “protected space” and you will have the power to ban all protests without changing the law) and on the right, you have the excuse that banning protests will stop extremists spreading their message.

Conclusion:

No matter what site of the political spectrum you are on, never fall for any ideas that involves the removal of freedoms. The excuses for the right-wing give the government the powers to spy on you and the left wing ones’ give those spying powers some use to the government by allowing them to arrest people they dislike, which sounds like a bit like a dictatorship.

The British government has been performing a massive crack on freedom of speech as of late, with two notable example’s being; a 19 year old women who posted rap lyrics to pay tribute to Frankie Murphy was put on a curfew order for 8 weeks, and a man who was fined £800 for teaching his to react to the “gas the Jews” with his paw out in order to annoy his girlfriend.

What is the next step the government will take to further suppress free speech?

The Sentencing Council has suggested that anyone sharing or commenting on a “hateful” should go to prison for up to six months.

If you combine extremely vague laws with the risk of six months in prison, you can make people too scared to comment on any issues that the government finds to be sensitive like; The Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandal or problems stemming from some in the traveller and gypsy communities. This allows the government with the right excuse to use politically correct type excuses to have people complaining thrown in prison, just like any dictatorship.

To keep the public on the governments’ side, they just have to say that these people where just spreading “hate speech” and that it is not free speech to “incite hatred” aka just some doublespeak.

The people who provide the propaganda that allows these attacks on free speech to be effective.

On some sub-reddits, people are supportive of these crack downs on free speech, including these people in response to someone being fined £800:

Even tho these comments where downvoted pretty heavily, there are plenty of people who agree with these laws, which is depressing as these comments where from a left-wing subreddit who should know the risks of giving a conservative too much powers when it comes to decided who is allowed to say what. The thing that everyone should think about is just how much potential there is for this to be expanded to other areas, such as protests against companies.

This whole thing is just the government trying to see how far it can go with controlling what people can say, as once the government has its citizens too scared to challenge their policies they can get complete control over everything without challenge, in a dictatorship-lite type system.

The whole going after “hate speech” is just a way of making people too scared of being called racist for simply resisting against laws that have no place in a democracy, in other the whole “hate speech” angle is just another piece of government propaganda.

In 2014, China forced New York Times reporter Austin Ramzy out of the country. This appears to have come from the fact that the New York Time published articles that were critical of the Chinese government in a highly sensitive area aka corruption.

For the British government, one its’ biggest embarrassments are sex abuse rings that mostly involve a bunch of people who immigrated from Pakistan abusing a bunch of girls and authorities covering it up. This is a big problem for the government as their political correctness as a lot of the perpetrators where Muslims’ it goes against the message that Theresa May want’s people to believe about the religion.

How do you a democracy to act to journalists who trigger sensitive issues? Do you expect them to give clear answers? Or do you expect them to ban them from the country? In a functioning democracy, you would expect the government to try to solve the underlining issue and give clear answers on why it failed to do so before but this is the United Kingdom we are talking about, a country where protecting people’s feelings matters more than improving the country.

Lauren Southern is a Canadian journalist who is critical of Islam, so when she tried to enter the UK, she was stopped at the broader for “racism” aka handing out pamphlet’s saying that “Allah is gay”. Which is strange as Islam is not a race and might show the home office as being a bunch of homophobes.

Just like Austin in China, Lauren Southern triggered sensitive issues for a government. The British government then decided to copy China by deporting people that brought up a sensitive issue, aka the United Kingdom is copying the actions of a dictatorship which should bring into question about how democratic the government really is. Once you start oppressing journalists, everyone should get worried about what the government will do next.

So, if the police are able to arrest people for wrongthink at the broader than why are people who have literally fought against our troops being allowed to just come in?

In finding the answer you should just think for a second of how the government has embraced political correctness. Governments who embrace political correctness are the ones who hunt down people for wrongthink and who then have no trouble in allowing people into the country that are literally terrorists who fought for ISIS.  The current “Conservative” government is only conservative in name and is, in fact, is just like the Labour party but with less spending.

In arresting Lauren Southern, the police have been shown to be anti-journalist which shows that the government is oppressing journalists that disagree with them. This means the government is copying dictatorships in the oppressing of the media and as such, you should question whether or not The Conservative Party even believe in democracy.

I know a lot of people call Jeremy Corbyn a terrorist sympathiser but with Theresa Mays’ government not blocking people returning from ISIS and instead are blocking people who are against terrorism, then doesn’t that make Theresa May a terrorist sympathiser?

All the way from the government to the police it now appears that the current establishment is more interested in keeping the public from speaking out against their multiple policy failures. The government will always come up with some sort of propaganda to try to justify those failures but when that propaganda fails the government always has the police force to do its’ dirty work.

The Times reported that government minister; Matt Hancock is pushing for all social media websites to verify the age of anyone using their services. Matt Hancock wants for everyone to have to use their passports in order verify their age but one big issue with this proposal is that many people don’t have a passport, especially children. This would to many people no longer being able to use social media websites due to a lack of a passport.

Basically, Matt Hancock wants everybody to have to use a passport to sign into social media, for this, he is using the classic think of the children argument. If you want to know the true intentions of a law like this than just read this section of the article “under proposals being drawn up to tame the “wild west” of the internet.”.

This talk of “age-appropriate material” and “time cut-offs” combined with wanting your social media account tied to official ID should have you worried as the government are very anti-free speech. This will make it easier for the government to arrest you for saying anything “offensive”.

This also shows the government wants to keep extending “age-checks”, this could easily end up with you having to show your ID to visit any website which will allow for the police to arrest you if you view any website they dislike.

The whole “think of the children” thing is just a cover for the government to get more control over our lives and to anyone who believes the government when it talking about protecting children, just remember that 114 documents went missing related to allegations of a “Westminster paedophile ring”.

The reason why the government is going after the right wing rather than the left wing at the moment is because people on the left would protest heavily about it which is embarrassing for the government, but if the government goes after things that would mostly see people on the right wing arrested than they will cheer in support. Obviously, after the government has cracked down of right-wing dissent they will go after the left wing as they will be no one left to protect them from government crackdowns on dissent. Dissent on any side of the political spectrum is harmful to the government as it leads to people bringing up embarrassing facts about them.

This all appears to be the government just trying to find ways of censoring the internet of any wrongthink. No matter what side of the political spectrum you are on, never believe a politician when they are looking for ways to take away your rights.

Ayn Rand philosophy revolves around four ideals; Reality, Reason, Self-Interest and Capitalism.

Unsurprisingly for an event which would have a combination of; support for capitalism, have controversial people speaking and is hosted at a university, at around 6:30 pm it got invaded by the Antifa. To which Sargon of Akkad appeared to be surprisingly calm about.

If you don’t know what the Antifa are than just remember them as communists who use violence against people they claim to be fascists.

Looking at the video, fights themselves only appeared to have lasted seconds as luckily the Antifa where heavily outnumbered.

The Antifa member’s featured in this video should be identified as this will help everyone involved in investigating what happened that night, as such I have included a photo below of the guy who did not cover his face as he is the person that will be the easiest to identify.

If you know who this man is then it might be a good idea to talk to Sargon of Akkad or King’s College London.

Jason Scott is a very well-known archivist who is most well known for his archival website; textfiles.com.

By running an archive Jason Scott has helped preserve information that may have been lost otherwise but that does not mean that he has not said that can be a cause for concern.

Jason Scott has made a few comments about Donald trump online including; saying that “Trump is 32 kinds of awful” and “This is a terrible president” in a retweet to the president who was talking about his classic CNN is fake news rhetoric. This on its own should not make anyone worry about archiving with him, as he has made a statement on his LinkedIn profile that shows him before pro-free speech;

“I explained that as a librarian, I maintained an archive and library of all sorts of materials, some which I supported and many I was neutral or negative on – this is the nature of free speech.” (Image archive as archive.is does not work with LinkedIn).

You might be asking why I included anti-trump comments by Jason Scott as they don’t have anything directly to do with Jason Scott but its there to provide some context into some things we might need to watch out for in the future. The main point of this article is about this comment Jason Scott left on his discord “server”:

Jason Scott#3472 [04-Mar-18 08:38 AM]
“Wrongthink” is a phrase like “Virtue Signalling” where I mostly put your marker two notches under zero and then idly see where things go

 

Saying that the phase wrong think, “put your marker two notches under zero” is a bit worrying as if you don’t know about the phase wrongthink, It is generally used to describe when social media companies try to enforce a political point of view by banning or showdown banning people whose political point of view does not match the one shared by the social media company.

As Jason Scott owns his own archives and works for the Internet Archive, him making comments like this should make you at least somewhat concerned. Knowing this I would recommend you keep your own copies of anything you send to Jason Scott or the Internet Archive in case that slippery slope does happen, especially if the content is controversial in any way.

If you spot anything suspicious concerning regarding Jason Scott or Internet Archive please email me at matthew@worldofmatthew.info

Theresa May is a massive authoritarian who has a massive hate boner for the internet. I mean, Theresa May has found every excuse to try to regulate the internet including; blaming the internet for helping terrorists, blaming the internet for “abuse”, blaming the internet for modern slavery and blaming the internet because it allows for encryption of data. Theresa May basically blames the internet for all of society’s ills and wants to control it, and in order to get control of the internet Theresa May spews out a bunch of blatant propaganda.

But why would Theresa May want to control the internet? If you ask her than its mainly about stopping terrorism but if that was the case the police would be better funded and better at handing reports of potential terrorists. My theory of why Theresa May wants to control the internet is that she wants to control the information the citizens of the United Kingdom are allowed to see.
All political sides should see past the propaganda spewed by Theresa May, like for example;
If you are on the left wing than you should be worried about being labelled an “extremist” for protesting fracking and being arrested for it.
If you are on the right wing than you should be worried about being labelled as someone who spews “hate speech” or “abuse” for complaining about girls getting raped by migrants and being arrested for it.

So, what happens next?

I see that Theresa May will attempt to pass a bunch of laws to control the internet but these laws will fail to meet the goals of Theresa May as people she dislikes’ will just move to the deep web or just platforms that don’t care about what Theresa May wants.

What will happen when these laws fail to censor people Theresa May dislikes?

I think upon failing to censor the internet through her current ideals for new laws, Theresa May will start to get even more extreme, this will likely lead to one of two outcomes;

  1. She will copy China and make a government blocklist that all internet service providers will have to follow or be closed down. For this the government would only have to expand the porn blocklist to other areas.
  2. She will make a United Kingdom only intranet where only websites approved by the government will be allowed, a bit like North Korea. This will cause huge economic damage in the long term but when has a government ever thought in the long term?
