Milo Yiannopoulos in Girdwood, Alaska in 2016

Milo Yiannopoulos loves it when you get mad at him. When you break windows, burn cars, and spray paint “Kill Trump” on the walls of businesses.

You’re simply proving his point: There is no true tolerance on the left side of the political fulcrum.

He loves it when so-called progressives go nuts in the name of “anti-Nazi,” “anti-white nationalism,” or “anti-alt-right.”

Whatever Milo Yiannopoulos is, they will find him to be their perfect villain.

The Democrat rabble is playing right into his 32-year-old politically incorrect hands.

Yiannopoulos is a social-media phenom who is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame, as Andy Warhol liked to describes such moments of popular culture.

Some call him a professional troll; some do not read the Constitution, which protects political speech, no matter how trollish or boorish or white-ish.

Conservative and outspoken, Yiannopolous speaks across the country about how immigration is out of control, that it has had a detrimental effect on European nations, Great Britain included, and that not enough people recognize the importance of protecting their national cultures.

This is where he gets the uncomfortable label “white nationalist,” which his detractors have used to discredit him and have him banned from their college campuses and other venues. They are having enormous success at removing him from the college speaking tour.

Yet it only makes him more interesting. Who is this guy who calls himself @DangerousFaggot, and what is he saying that makes everyone lose their minds?

(Read: Donald Trump calls out professional anarchists after Berkeley riots.)

Yiannopoulos is a gay conservative – you might say noticeably gay. Also Jewish (his mother is Jewish, so he is). He is also Greek. And he was raised Catholic.

Twitter banned him last year after he made some mildly provocative statements about an African-American actress. They were not even terribly offensive – those who follow Twitter have regularly seen much worse from the likes of Leftist hate speech purveyor Shannyn Moore, who writes a column for the Alaska Dispatch News. Twitter never bans her for calling people Nazis, and the Dispatch doesn’t seem to care either:

But back to Milo.

From time to time, Yiannopoulos makes it known he prefers African-American male lovers, and he may even have a lover from Alaska.

And that brings us to the trip he made to Alaska in the summer of 2016, ostensibly to hook up with one of his close friends, who was tweeting about the trip incessantly.

He toured around some favorite sites in Southcentral, filmed a little footage, took photos of himself in front of some of our favorite landmarks, and even talked about doing a speaking engagement, but that never panned out. A lot of that documentation on Twitter has since been scrubbed, presumably by Twitter.

His paramour tweeted about it as well.

Yiannopoulos works as the technology editor for Breitbart News, which is a Drudge-like news-and-views web site founded by the equally controversial and now-late Andrew Breitbart.

Outtakes from one of his YouTube broadcasts, from Girdwood, is not safe for work, and has the man who calls himself a “dangerous faggot” deciding that people in Alaska are odd and that, “This place is weird,” while not quite being able to pronounce the word “Girdwood.”

 

 

Yiannopoulos has become the speaking engagement most likely to be canceled because of a petulant progressive movement that has made him into a free-speech hero, rather than merely a handsome anti-open-borders guy with a pleasant English accent and a decidedly unafraid point of view.

Suffice it to say, he seems to be enjoying the attention. All in time for his book, which will be released in March, and is called, rightly, Dangerous.
