Remember Milo Yiannopoulos?

Boy, that guy plummeted from far right wing darling to persona non grata fast. Now he has been banned from Parler, the “free speech” website, or more accurately, the “free speech for fascists and racists” site. You’d think he’d fit right in there.

He had taken to declaring that he was going to publicly post Ben Shapiro’s phone number, in the name of free speech, and then he started suggesting that he’d give a $500 bounty to people who murdered immigrants.

Fabulous. Soon I’ll never ever have to hear about Milo again.

    So much to unpack… First please release El Shapo’s phone number. I can have a lot of fun with that. Second, Milo is F*CKING BRITISH. What does he care about American Immigrants? It’s like hearing that prick Hilton on Fox News. You don’t like it? Go back to your own country. If they’ll have you.

    Someone once suggested sending Ham half-way back to Australia, as a compromise. That would work for Yiannopoulos, too.

  3. Reginald Selkirk says

    Double parking is also illegal. And yet the death penalty is not considered appropriate for that either. Something for Mr. Yiannopoulos to consider.

    @chigau #5 “ending Ham half-way back to Australia”

    Is that great circle route, or center of the Earth?

  4. cartomancer says

    Well, technically you could avoid hearing about him right now if you didn’t insist on keeping up to date with what’s going on in all these right-wing cesspools. It’s really not difficult going through one’s daily life without hearing mention of the man.

  5. says

    I fear you are much too optimistic, PZ. You’ll hear of Milo several more times. Since he’s the Great Publicity Whore of Babylon, his next cry for attention is likely to cross several lines leading to his arrest. Then there’ll be his show-trial. Not long after his conviction, there’ll be news of his getting shanked in the prison exercise yard by a fellow inmate. And we can expect his funeral to be regarded as a casting call by other publicity-mongers who will serve as histrionic “mourners” in hopes of getting noticed and inheriting the crown. Or tiara. Whatever. Averting one’s gaze seems the only actual remedy.

    Careful people.
    This is Milo Yiannopoulos we are talking about here.

    No one with even a quarter of a brain thinks he will actually pay that $500 bounty for murdering a border crosser.
    He might not even have an extra $500 these days.
    Believing anything he says is a mistake.

    His judgement has consistently not been very good.
    He said the quiet part out loud again!!!

    chigau@1 True, and though it’s a fabled weapon, I thought real American Patriots™ used AR-15 style rifles that you must always call an “ArmaLite rifle”, not an “assault rifle” out of respect for the people whose flesh you’re tearing to shreds… but I digress.

    Kalashnikov? Seriously? What is Milo, some kind of secret Stalinist?

    Couple charged with assault in shooting, melee during UW … › seattle-news › crime › couple-cha…

    Apr 24, 2017 — 20 University of Washington demonstration “to provoke altercations with … Couple charged with assault in shooting, melee during UW speech by Milo Yiannopoulos … 1 of 3 | Police move in to help a man who was shot in the stomach during.

    An unarmed demonstrator was shot and almost killed outside of Milo Yiannopoulos speech in Seattle a few years ago.
    The shooters even said they went to the demonstration with guns to provoke people and then shoot them if they retaliated.
    The shooters were caught, tried, and …beat the rap at trial.

    Milo Yiannopoulos is a right wingnut terrorist.
    Why do we even let him into the USA, since he isn’t even a citizen?
    We have enough of our own terrorists.

    OP: “Soon I’ll never ever have to hear about Milo again.” To echo cartomancer, I hadn’t heard diddly-squat about this yahoo in months, and will hopefully continue to ignore him henceforth.

  10. PaulBC says

    robro@14 Oh.

    Well, it doesn’t make my day, but I was getting tired of watching people I actually care about die while he somehow kept blathering.

  11. PaulBC says

    Reginald Selkirk@7 What would his kinetic energy be if he actually made it to the center? Usually this scenario involves continuing the trip up to the surface.

  12. PaulBC says


    Great Publicity Whore of Babylon

    Yup, the Whore of Babble-On, though but one of many contenders for that title.

  13. Frederic Bourgault-Christie says

    Who ever would have thought that the right wing chuds might be contained if there were consequences for their criminal and borderline-criminal conduct?

  14. raven says

    Well, speaking of dead terrorists, Rush Limbaugh has died.

    Today just got a lot better. The world is a better place now.

    My big project for the rest of the day is to figure out some sort of Covid-19 proof way to celebrate.

  15. blf says

    What would his kinetic energy be if he actually made it to the center?

    He would refuse to proceed, calling the journey anothrer commie n-word moolsin atheist blah blah blah plot to corrupt his precious bodily fluids with flat-earthism.

    Usually this scenario involves continuing the trip up to the surface.

    In his case, he’d demand a cheering escort of baby-faced scanty-clad cherubs and nymphs, plus a large advance fee.

  16. unclefrogy says

    I’m thinking of the likely incineration before reaching the acctual center. a fun thought!
    uncle frogy

  17. PaulBC says

    blf@23 Well I’m sure he’d expect to ascend godlike out of the other side, but physics says he would not go any higher than he was dropped from to begin with. Hahahahaha poor dumb Milo, busted by physics again!

    (Unless it says something else, since the earth is spinning and shit and maybe I haven’t taken into account all the forces involved.)

  18. jrkrideau says

    @ chigau (違う)

    Looks like ou get the $500 only if you use an AK47.

    Another Putin puppet!

    @ @ 6 Ray Ceeya
    Apparently the USA is becoming less a refuge for huddled masses and more a refuge for white supremacists from other nations.

    I am pretty sure neither we nor the British want Gavin McInnes back, though we might have to take him; you are welcome to Ted Cruz, no need to thank us..
