I just watched part of a Laci Green Twitter video about how she met with Sargon of Akkad, whom she calls Carl and spoke about how she was crying when she talked to him and hugged him and they hashed things out and she said he has apologised for some things: re his followers harassing Anita Sarkeesian.
But she referred to his past actions as “mistakes” and I’m just … Lost. Look, if she forgives him for what he has done to HER then fine, I forgive easily and I understand the impulse. But that language that distances him and protects him was so disturbing to hear.
For starters, Sargon KNEW his followers were harassing Anita, everyone did and he had nothing to say on it.
He has called feminism cancer, has said that BLM is a black supremacist movement to kill cops, said Trump was a lesser evil to Hillary Clinton, says that “social justice” courses should be suspended because they are also supremacists and has actively minimized the “alt right”’s white supremacy.
THESE ARE NOT MISTAKES.
And I’m pissed at some sobbing short video because he treated her a bit like a person in the street and they took a selfie together so everything is just a “mistakes” meanwhile he holds all of the toxic, disgusting and dangerous opinions he always had.
I honestly couldn’t make it through the video, the simpering over him managing to step over an incredibly low bar of basic human decency was just to fucking much.
Forgive him if you want to, but don’t cry into a camera and declare his actions “mistakes”.
