Since MILO is a Trump supporter, the subtext of almost everything that takes place around him ends up in Trump’s backyard.
I don’t like putting MILO near the top of today’s posts, but I just found this video, so here it is.
MILO started to bore me about two or three months ago and nothing has changed about that. He’s an attention whore who is assuredly NOT alt-right. He’s really not that conservative either. It’s easy to go after low hanging fruit like nut job feminists and liberal college professors, which is his shtick.
The video shows MILO’s appearance on comedian Bill Maher’s HBO show. It lasts about 10 and a half painful minutes. There’s really not anything much of substance discussed regarding any of the issues we are concerned about.
Maher constantly cuts off MILO with gay jokes rather than have the conversation go into serious subjects.
Mashable offers the most insightful take on the whole shabby affair that I’ve seen.
Here’s an excerpt:
Maher, a sporadically liberal free speech advocate, seems to be blissfully ignorant about the past half-decade of cyclical internet outrage.
“If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims — and he might be — nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night,” Maher wrote in his statement.
If you’ve spent any time following Milo drama in the past few years, Maher’s approach feels like magical realism. How could he think he’s “exposing” someone who’s already been exposed and roasted time and time again?
That’s because the comedian follows the same logic most media lived by during the primaries. There was little danger in showering Trump with copious amount of free press, the argument went, because of how blatantly unqualified Trump was for president. Audiences would pick up on him immediately. By simply broadcasting Trump’s rallies on television, he would peacefully self-destruct.
As we’ve now learned, the opposite happened. Trump wasn’t exposed when CNN played his rallies without critique — his reputation was sometimes even burnished. Sure, internet progressives tirelessly mocked Kellyanne Conway for making up a massacre. Still, 51% of Trump supporters now believe that the massacre justifies Trump’s extensive Muslim ban.
Audiences who would have never been exposed to these characters now saw them in full light — and some liked what they saw.
By providing these people with a mainstream platform, hosts and journalists do little to expose Milo and Conway for their fringe ideologies. They normalize them and help make their extremist nationalist beliefs more palatable. It’s much more acceptable to defend “black crime” or “killer dykes” when there’s a handsome man on television defending it.
OK, I get it. Ban Trump and everyone who supports him from TV. That’s the gist of the Mashable argument.
When I was a college professor, we embraced the honorable principle that there’s a marketplace of ideas and that the good ideas would triump over the bad ones. Liberals say that conservative and populist ideas are bad, so must be banned.
They’re scared. And rightfully so. It’s time for us to move in for the kill and see to it that liberal (Jewish) control over the media is ended and some sort of fairness is reestablished.
This bullsh*t so called debate is trending #1 on Twitter. Honestly, it’s a comment on how pathetic Americans have become that this junk has so captivated so many millions. Sample opinions:
