I was away. Still sort of away but I have a few posts stored.
I come back to such an odd turn of events, every time, don’t I?
There I was, travelling parts of Europe only to return to… this.
I could revise earlier predictions I made along these lines but you know where the search box is.
Is it terrible that I vaguely respect the fact he managed to troll himself?
“But then a recording emerged of Yiannopoulos cheerfully defending relationships between older men and younger boys, and finally it turned out that free speech had limits.”
The internet will ask: a Jewish thing or a gay thing?
I have often noted the paedophilia of ‘twink’ culture and basically every Jewish man you meet is at least bisexual. Never met a single exception.
It’s bizarre but I actually feel sorry for him. I think it’s the topic and his own doubtless truthful history. He wouldn’t lie about something like that. Women can tell.
Quite a waste to the cause of free speech, it’s easy for the media to twist things, as he has done himself.
Podcasts are a stupid idea, you’re doing your enemies’ job of recording yourself at leisure, it’s like filming yourself when drunk. I’ve been invited onto my fair share of podcasts thanks to this blog and always refused, the cult of celebrity is basically a trap-door if you strike a false tone.
“Understanding Yiannopoulos requires a version of Occam’s Razor: the most obvious answer is the correct one. What does he actually believe in? Nothing except his own brand and the monetisable notoriety that fuels it. That’s Milo’s Razor. Understanding how he got this far is more unnerving.”
I think the Gamergate luck ran out, he’s better off avoiding PR until this dies down and planning a comeback on something a little different. While I do think he’s a gross opportunist, I don’t necessarily disapprove of him for that per se. I have a distaste for the way he’s brandished about certain private details and those of others. As you can tell I am fastidious about my own privacy and those of similar stripe.
I wonder who doxed him. Someone must have passed this along. There are many possible candidates. I’d bet someone like Cernovich, to get the stage all to himself and his gorilla impression. It wouldn’t shock me if Juice Bro was the saboteur of the saboteurs. He fits the profile, needing money and acclaim, to a tee. Such people will stab their closest allies in the back first, knowing the threat is greatest there. He has the same reputation as Milo (see below) but he’s managed to keep it hidden, making him the greater threat of the two.
He wouldn’t have got away with his glibness this long if he weren’t a race-mixing Jewish homo, they don’t mention that. I hope this suitably humbles Milo and he comes back stronger for it. A better journalist and brain, with stronger ethics he keep pumping down our throats about.
‘In a vicious email, Yiannopoulos threatened to ruin her career and called her “a common prostitute”.’
Somehow I doubt it.
‘Many profile-writers have noted that his critics won’t speak on the record for fear of vendettas. Iain Martin, the Telegraph’s former comment editor, remembered “talk of him being someone who should not be crossed” and was shocked by the cruelty of his mob-like followers, which included rape threats and doxing.’
Hmmm. Careful who you threaten. Eventually he’ll smack someone in the biker bar who’s actually bigger than he is, they just didn’t look it.
“Young, handsome, charismatic and eloquent – the writer Laurie Penny called him “a charming devil and one of the worst people I know”
no Elon tho
““I didn’t like me very much and so I created this comedy character. And now they’ve converged.” Whenever he gets into trouble, he blames the character. On Monday, he attributed his justification of child abuse to his “usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humour”. Last year, he flippantly told Bloomberg Business Week: “I’m totally autistic or sociopathic. I guess I’m both.””
NPD, raging. Anonymous Conservative should do a profile.
Sociopaths don’t claim any of the traits and autistics are trying to be helpful, they don’t wield sarcasm like a straight razor (so no, I’m not one either).
“The Southern Poverty Law Center calls him “the person who propelled the alt-right movement into the mainstream”.”
Do not want.
“Most people who are no-platformed or shamed on Twitter didn’t set out to inspire outrage, but outrage is Yiannopoulos’s lifeblood; without it, he is nothing.”
The projection is exquisite. I was actually sent this by an actor friend. They act in interviews too. Many aren’t political at all.
I’ve changed my mind again (woman’s prerogative and all that), I think we can use this to recapture him under our terms.
Stringent limits, discuss this, this and this but not that.
Everyone would win, since he is willing and able to debate on MSM TV.
“Penny wrote that she wouldn’t debate him in public, “because I know I’ll lose, because I care and he doesn’t – and that means he has already won”. If he is indeed a supervillain, then he’s Ben Kingsley’s character in Iron Man 3: a shallow, amoral actor who plays the bad guy for money.”
“How was this smirking void ever taken seriously? He had enablers… and every TV producer who booked him to say something outrageous while batting his eyelashes like Princess Diana.”
They ignore the public’s purpose with Trump, Milo et al. Professional provocateurs.
I disagree with what you say, but I’ll defend your right to say it. Classic liberalism.
But you know it isn’t a proper leftie triggerfest until Owen Jones wades in, looking about twelve.
I had to cancel my theatrical plans to catch up on all of this. It was too juicy to wait. C’est la vie.
My mates had a good cackle about this inevitability. It’s like he was trying to be a Nazi cosplayer fag (a totally different but faggier fag in the tradition of South Park) but also fighting them too, so when playing both sides eventually came back to bitch-slap him it’s like, stop hitting yourself, stop hitting yourself, stop hitting yourself.
your integrity isn’t high enough for this horsey ride
lurk moar, learn something
normie bitches with their South Park tier troll shit and ‘evil vagina’ Milo rags, meanwhile those of us with taste prefer a little xenosystems empire-building and Wonder Showzen
BRING BACK WONDER SHOWZEN
AND ALL IS FORGIVEN, MY DIRTY YKW
For those unfamiliar…
I want one smooth jazz solo about being fabulous and fashy.
The Guardian would need to run a 24hr helpline to deal with the triggering.
