Right-wing child molestation advocate, former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopolous, is making headlines yet again for something terrible he did. He has begun threatening journalists when asked for comments on stories, The Observer reports.
“I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight,” the Trump-loving white nationalist told the Observer when asked to comment on a restaurant he reportedly frequents, adding that threatening journalists is now his “standard response to a request for comment.”
Yiannopolous lost numerous speaking gigs and his job at Breitbart after he advocated for “relationships” between men and children, classifying boys as young as 13 as fair game for pedophiles who want to “give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock.” Yiannopolous said these “relationships” are “hugely positive experiences” for victims, adding that he “is advocating” for them. Shortly after video of his remarks went viral, he announced that he was “actively hunting” children as young as 13 for a special project.
More recently, Yiannopolous announced that he would be sending $14.88 to the New Yorker’s former fact checker Talia Lavin, who resigned after she misinterpreted an ICE officer’s tattoo and incorrectly labeled him a Nazi (though the actions of ICE as of late do invite such a comparison in and of themselves).
The number 14 is a reference to white supremacist mantra “14 Words,” which reads, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” The number 88 is code for “Heil Hitler.” Both are often presented together by Nazis, white nationalists, and other Trump fans to attack those they so much as perceive as Jewish. Lavin is Jewish.
It’s time we stop coddling people like Milo and other Trump fans like him. The only way we can make America great again is by taking it back from those who promote fascism.
