Former Breitbart Editor: Conservatives Should ‘Start Gunning Journalists Down’

 

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.

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would ‘put the nail’ in independent counsel ruling

In a 2016 video, Judge Kavanaugh argued that he would overturn Morrison v. Olson, a Supreme Court ruling that underpins the appointment of independent counsels. The ruling largely fell out of favor after Ken Starr’s turn in the Clinton era. As FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver points out, however, Kavanaugh volunteered the example by himself, revealing something about his views on Supreme Court precedent.

Sarah Sanders: We’re working on “bold reforms” to stop Russian election interference

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration is working on “bold reforms” to ensure Russian interference in US elections never happens again.

Sanders was asked if Trump sees Russian meddling in the 2016 election as “an attack on democracy.”

The President has faced continued furor over his remarks about election meddling made alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

Here’s what Sanders said today:

The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems, which is why he has spent so much time with his administration making sure that this doesn’t happen again. Let’s not forget this didn’t happen under President Trump’s watch. This happened under the Obama administration. We’re taking steps, we’re making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again.

Here’s what the White House says Trump and Putin talked about in their private meeting

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders listed a number of topics that were included in President Trump’s private one-on-one meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Sanders listed Syrian humanitarian aid, Israeli security, North Korea, denuclearization, Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea, reducing Russian and US nuclear arsenals, and “your favorite topic” Russian interference in elections.

Sanders said the meeting reflected the “beginning of the dialogue with Russia and our administration and theirs and we’re going to continue working through those things.”

Sanders also said Putin’s proposal of having Russian prosecutors question US officials, including former US ambassador to Russia Mike McFaul, arose in Trump’s meeting, but she said no agreements were reached.

“He said it was an interesting idea. He didn’t commit to anything,” Sanders said. “We’ve committed to nothing.”
