After learning earlier today that his book deal was cancelled by his editor due to Milo Yiannopoulos’s alleged comments condoning pedophilia, the provocateur extraordinaire who dubs himself as The Dangerous Faggot resigned from his editorial position at Breitbart News.
Milo is the second victim after General Flynn in the fakestream™ media campaign against conservatives and pro Trumpers. Milo’s resignation follows the fallout provoked by a year old video containing comments taken out of context, a video which stirred huge controversy.
Milo’s political assassination can be regarded as an attack on Breibart, a very conservative news outlet, and by extension on Steve Bannon, who is Breitbart’s founder/exec-chairman and currently a high official (senior adviser) in Donald Trump’s administration . And obviously, following the same line of thought, an attack on Trump.
After Milo presented his resignation from the senior editor position, Alex Marlow, Breitbart’s editor in chief criticized him for his “not defensible” comments from the aforementioned video.
According to reports, half a dozen Breitbart employees threatened to leave the news organization if Milo did not get fired.
During his Breitbart tenure, Milo has been a troll extraordinaire, i.e. a highly provocative British born of Jewish ancestry and on top of that gay commentator who has offended Muslims, blacks, gays, snowflakes, liberals, women and basically any easily triggered person without a sense of humor.
Since Breitbart’s executive chairman Bannon hired him in 2014 and promoted him as a conservative truth teller and a hero of free speech, Milo’s bigger than life presence online (and offline) helped Breitbart to become hugely popular among Trump supporters and the vaguely defined alt-right.
Just last week, the same Breitbart editor Alexander Marlow described Milo as the number one free speech warrior of his generation in the US at the moment.
Milo was crucified for telling the hosts of a three hour show in 2016 that:
“You’re misunderstanding what pedophilia means. Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13 years old who is sexually mature. Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty.”
That comment was described as condoning pedophilia. The rest is history.
