Antisemites And White Supremacists Declare 'Holy Crusade' Against MILO - Breitbart

This Milo person has been a curiosity to me ever sinc I heard him on some Youtube show. Seems to me he's "appropriated" many of the modern methods of those who call themselves "alt-right" (when in reality they're just run of the mill lunatic white supremacists like the Daily Stormer guy in the article.) and watered it all down to Libertarian ideas, radical free speech, and protectionism etc. and they MAD! Heck he even uses that Pepe the frog cartoon like some of those online Neo Nazis do. Have no idea how a stupid cartoon became an icon for White Supremacy anyway... what the heck? I mean it's a cartoon, and the Pepe dude is green! (maybe their open to little green men?)

Anyway, thought it was kind of interesting... Milo Y, the gay guy who's boyfriends are black is hijacking their stuff, and it's making them crazy! It's like he's a troll, trolling the trolls! Kinda brilliant in a way.
Hmmm... maybe he's like Batman! I have to admit it's somewhat satisfying to think of hard core skinheads tearing their hair out over this.

The OP is of course being completely dishonest about this. There is no attempt to understand, only to demonize.

Who should he be attempting to understand? Milo? Or the Alt-Right?

I get his curiosity, I don't get your response.

Personally, I think Milo's job is to cultivate controversy, & possibly to perform 'bait & switch' con tricks like a well-trained lapdog. Yes, he may have motives however they're more likely to be solely self-serving ones. Take his answer re: Libertarians in this interview for example:

Quote:
...Q: What about Libertarians?

A: What about them?

Q: Are they not an acceptable alternative?

A: No. They’re a joke. “Libertarians are children. Libertarians are people who have given up looking for an answer.”

Q: Why?

A: Libertarians are children. Libertarians are people who have given up looking for an answer. This whole “everybody do what they want” is code for “leave me to do what I want.” It’s selfish and childish. It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness. That’s why they’re so obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking.

An Interview With the Most Hated Man on the Internet

Milo Yiannopoulos explains the alt-right, why Donald Trump is a cultural candidate, and why he thinks America should be great again.

The entire piece is worth a read if you're looking to understand Milo.
