Milo and the Greens are very similar.

I watched a heap of his videos and interviews on his YouTube channel last night, and Cossomby's comments mirror precisely what I was thinking.

He's even smirking in some of his interviews. Is it a nervous smirk over how far he's taken the joke, or is it a cheeky smirk over how foolish everyone else to think that he actually believes what he's saying? Some of his opinions are caricatures of right-wing ideology and I, for one, cannot take him seriously.

Looks like another Borat to me, only this time taken wa-a-a-a-ay too far.

Dear Nathan,

The following link might clarify a few things for
you about Milo Yiannopoulos:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/feb/21/milo-yiannopoulos-rise-and-fall-shallow-actor-bad-guy-hate-speech

I'll quote just a little from the link:

"There is after all a line that you cannot cross and still
be hailed by conservatives as a champion of free speech.
Milo Yiannopoulos, the journalist that Out magazine dubbed
an "internet supervillain" built his brand on those
activities."

"Until Monday, he was flying high, a hefty book deal with
Simon & Schuster, an invitation to speak at the American
Conservative Union's CPac Conference and a recent appearance
on Real Time with Bill Maher. But then a recording emerged
of Yiannopoulos cheerfully defending relationships between
older men and younger boys, and finally it turned out that
free speech had limits."

"The book deal and CPac swiftly evaporated. The next day he
resigned his post as an editor at Breitbart, the far-right
website where he was recruited by Donald Trump's consigliere
Steve Bannon, and where several staffers reportedly
threatened to quit unless he was fired..."

And there's so much more in the link.

It's worth a read.

He is a bit of a twit, but we need all the help we can get in this War.
People may listen to him, when they wouldn't to someone more "conservative".

The fact that The Totalitarian Progressives are rabidly hostile to a multiethnic gay man who has interracial relationships just puts a spotlight on their hypocrisy/insanity.

And that can't hurt.

I think Poe's Law is pertinent where Milo Yiannopoulos is concerned.

A chap who gets all his fame by making absurd but attention grabbing statements that most people find comically ridiculous, and uses that fame to sell books and tickets to speaking tours for his small but devoted cult of adoring fans who hang on his every word....

Does anybody know if David Icke has a son?
