There are many right wing hate accounts, even *actual* nazis that don't get banned because twitter is very, very slow to act/ban accounts.

No, they are proving his point about the regressive left by acting like jackasses. Without the regressive left there is no Milo.

And he exploits them for the attention and $.

And he earns every cent of that money.

Milo is a REAL intellectual.

He's saying to listen first hand rather than second hand. Are we really at the stage where other people completely filter your worldview and you take it as true?

This was the case with Trump. People who listened to him, came to like him, and found that nearly everything said about him was untrue, exaggerated, spun, etc. That is why the left post such rabid hate. It stops you from actually listening to the source itself, and making up your own mind.

I was in the "Trump is a joke and a loon" camp from media impressions and snippets until I listened to a full speech.

Its interesting to learn that a couple of executives at Twitter have the final say on who is a good person and who isn't. At least McCarthy had to win an election first.

Nah, he just seems like it because his opponents are so clueless.

I have a friend who thinks he's the next Christopher Hitchens. JFC, so he's British and not afraid to criticize stupidity on the left... that's where it ends. Milo is no Hitch FFS.

Here is his ghostbusters review. Dude isn't even a movie critic and it might be the best most in depth movie review I've ever read.

The problem with people like you is you don't have any sort of sense of humor or personality. And you just use buzzwords that the media has programmed you to say like BIGOT.

He isn't just a bomb thrower, when you listen to him he is a master at de-legitimizing feminism, BLM, Islam, and the regressive left.

And the fact that the left's response is to act like petulant children and storming his events parroting all the -ist buzzwords they are programmed to say just proves how right he is about everything.

http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/12/milo...milwaukee.html

Quote:
He spoke at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, where he was invited by a conservative student group, and he used his platform to mock a transgender student, displaying her name and photo prominently onscreen.
Quote:
In response to the incident, chancellor Mark Mone emailed the campus to say he was “disappointed that this speaker chose to attack a transgender student” and that he would “not stand silently by when a member of our campus community is personally and wrongly attacked.” The student responded with a blistering email, which a student-activist website published in full.

“You’re as embarrassing as the people who wear a safety pin and think that counts as being an ally — patting yourself on the back for a job well done — all while you stand silent as fascists attack your students,” she wrote. “Do you know what it’s like to be in a room full of people who are laughing at you as if you’re some sort of perverted freak? Do you know what this kind of terror is? No, you don’t.”
http://www.advocate.com/transgender/...ansphobia-tour

Quote:
“Never feel bad for mocking a transgender person,” he declared. “It is our job to point out their absurdity, to not make the problem worse by pretending they are normal. Much like fat-shaming, if our mockery drives them to get the help they need, we may save their life.”

Ironically, Yiannopoulos justifies his hateful rhetoric by claiming he is speaking for the best interests of trans people, including their health and wellness. He cites statistics from the Williams Insitute that detail the high rates of suicide among transgender women. He attributes this epidemic to depression caused by “having their genitals mutilated,” rather than vitriol such as his own that fosters a culture of intolerance, which in turn leads to the historically high homicide rate of trans women.
sounds like a real peach

Milo sounds like a wise man. Almost everything he says applies so well to Sweden.

He just shatters the core idealism of regressive leftist ideology. That is why they hate him and slander him for using the same tactics as they themselves use on social media.

edit: Just going by the posted video, don't know much about him other than that

Here is a short 6 min video of a feminized beta male approaching the stage and calling Milo the typical buzzwords "white supremacist "racist" and Milo lets him speak and to back up his accusations and Milo easily shoots him down.

Now c'mon Jules...you can't tell me you side with this stupid kid over Milo.

So, you're going to bat for targeted doxing and harassment? The point is obviously that most nazi/right wing trolls of the pepe wing have like 20 followers, mostly bots. Milo had an army follow his urges to harass and hurt others.

You won't find many better litmus test for actually having morals than supporting this trash.

His dress attire reminds me for some reason of that douchebag young kid who went deep in a scoop or wsoop event years ago. Nobody probably remembers.

He is an opportunist. I listened to a Joe Rogan podcast with him and he is using Trump phenom to make money.

With this book deal, I guess he does have the talent to do so.

That's America for you.

Yes, and if you ignore all the killing that happened in his name and focus solely on the paintings he did, Hitler was an alright guy! Definitely defies the vision others try to paint of him, if you ignore all the bad stuff he did.

Hitchens was an adolescent, much like all of those who sneer at religion.

Sneering at religion is juvenile, symptomatic of a stunted imagination. It exposes a state of perpetual adolescence that has something to do with their parents... they’re still sneering at dad in some way.

All the great world religions contain a complex system of beliefs regarding the nature of the universe and human life that is far more profound than anything that liberalism has produced. We have a whole generation of young people who are clinging to politics and to politicized visions of sexuality for their belief system. They see nothing but politics, but politics is tiny. You actually have much of the younger generation self-identifying by their sexuality. It is sad and sick.

HIthchens' Book "God is not Great" was a travesty. He sold that book on the brilliance of the chapter titles. If he had actually done the research and the work, where each chapter had the substance of those wonderful chapter titles, then that would have been a permanent book. Instead, he sold the book and then didn’t write one...he talked it. It was an appalling performance, demonstrating that that man was an absolute fraud to be talking about religion. He appeared to have done very little scholarly study. Hitchens didn’t even know Judeo-Christianity well, much less the other world religions. You’re remembered by your written work, and Hitchens’ written work was weak and won’t last.

I have enormous respect for Christopher Hitchens, his way with words and his intellectual courage. He was right about a lot of big stuff. First class mind. I like his brother Peter Hitchens a lot too.

Interesting critique.

I know the "new atheists" get a lot of flack for bashing religion so mercilessly without "understanding" the context of the scripture, and I suppose some of it has merit. Anyway, at least they're being straighforward, and I believe they (especially Hitch and Dawkins) really believe religion is toxic for society due to the way it scares people into believes based on faith.

BTW, are you a practicing Christian?

Hitchens, Dawkins, and Harris are all frauds.

Camille Paglia is the true goddess of atheism. She isn't a snarky fraud like the rest.

And it is sad that she doesn't get the notoriety that the others get.

Proving that the conservative community doesn't have a problem with the gay lifestyle. .
It proves no such thing. It only proves that SOME of them are clever at pretending they don't have an issue with homosexuality. The fact is that most of them openly abhor it.
