Is MILO controlled opposition? Did he set up an alt-right (or alt-light) phony event that was intended to never happen and fail in order to make the right look bad?
It sure seems that way, if the following article is to be believed.
The thing is that it’s not clear if the journalism here is fake news or not.
We’re just going to have to see if the alt-right can score a victory on the left’s turf, with MILO leading the charge.
BERKELEY — A conservative UC Berkeley student group that had been working with right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos to host a “Free Speech Week” on campus officially called off the four-day program on Saturday.
But the former columnist for the “alt-right” Breitbart News doubled down on his promise to go through with the event, leaving university and law enforcement officials wading into an unpredictable, potentially violent showdown on Sunday.
During a hastily scheduled Facebook Live news conference Saturday morning, Yiannopoulos, who has made a career of trolling people online with racist and sexist attacks, insisted the event would move forward without the student group, the Berkeley Patriot.
Mike Cernovich and Pamela Geller join MILO in speaking at the 27 minute long press conference.
It’s hard to tell who’s lying. The “journalist” who wrote this piece or MILO. He says that something is going to happen at Berkeley on Sunday.
Let me update this post with this video which shows Sargon of Arkad in Berkeley from the U.K. to participate in Free Speech Week. Tim Pool, a reliable source in my experience, is the interviewer.
