Milo! What are they doing to you?

 

The Americans are not a forgiving lot. They can be harshly judgmental and moralistic. They can be dreadfully PC: left, right and centre.  Milo Yiannopoulos is in the process of finding out just how much.

Apparently he made some remarks at some point recently that young gay males might discover who they were by means of sex with older men, and he meant people in their late teens, but the wall has fallen in on him.

I cannot imagine Milo Yiannopoulos NOT having made such remarks at some point in his short and much exposed life. In fact he made them in some radio show somewhere where he thought he had licence to be outrageous. He has suddenly been made aware that the United States is a literal, irony-free society, and can summon a fury of self righteousness in a split second.

In case you have been living in isolation for the past six months Milo Yiannopoulos is a provocative British faggot who has been talking about the dangers of Islam, feminists and political correctness to gays and to freedom in general. He has been getting away with it because he is witty, charming, fundamentally intelligent, faggy, well spoken, and essentially sound in his arguments.

He draws the opprobrium of the political Left the way a tank draws fire on a battlefield; if you cannot knock it out, you are doomed. Yiannopoulos has been drawing fire towards himself, including full scale riots at the U of C campus at Berkeley.

The idea that this fairy imp is a conservative shows how desperate the situation has become. He is only conservative of the right to speak and think; he is in all senses of the word a liberal. He is for freedom in all its forms, especially of thought, speech and whom you can laugh at. Nor is he a leftist.

As the Daily mail reports:

On Monday, he wrote on Facebook: ‘I’m partly to blame. My own experiences as a victim led me to believe I could say anything I wanted to on this subject, no matter how outrageous.

‘But I understand that my usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humor might have come across as flippancy, a lack of care for other victims or, worse, “advocacy.” I deeply regret that. People deal with things from their past in different ways.’

You can read about the whole sorry mess in the Daily Mail.
I can only sympathize with Milo. He has been leading the charge against the atrocious suppression of freedom everywhere. What he forgot to realize is that nothing said anywhere escapes being recorded these days. There is no locker room, there is no refuge, there is no isolated cabin in the woods where you can let off some intemperate, irresponsible, or genuinely offensive remarks without them being recorded, especially if once you have been identified as a troublemaker, a provocateur, or an aspiring political candidate.
He will do time in the dog house; and he will learn an important lesson, that even outrageous faggot provocateurs must always be mindful that Big Sister is watching and listening.
There will be more to this story. What a gift that has been to the political Left! Milo’s usefulness to the cause of freedom has been damaged. Let us hope this particular tank can be hauled off the field and sent to the repair shops for refurbishment and an upgrade.
The people of the United States also like a comeback.
[If by chance you are stupid enough to believe that I endorse pedophilia in writing in defence of Milo, would you be so good as to find another blog to read? Thank you.]

I must state up front I’m not happy with what has happened to Mile – it makes the right appear as reactionary and pious as the fascist left. That said, the bulk of the furor is from an interview Milo did with Joe Rogan wher he admitted that he was molested by a priest when under age and consented, and that sex with underage boys is common in gay culture. He then refused to give the names of the older men he knew were doing this pedophilia – he did not condone it but did not condemn it either. He did say the law had it about right in the age requirement for concent.

All in all I think tht Milo was getting just a bit too camp instead of staying on message and it backlashed on him – he needs a slap on the wrist and should be accepted back into the right wing big tent.
