This is the problem with the profile of internet troll Milo Yiannopoulos in ‘Out’

Some journalists think their job is simply to push “facts” out into the world and see what happens. They lob grenades over the editorial wall and don’t think they’re responsible for the explosion on the other side.

This is what gay magazine Out did Wednesday, when it published a pretentious profile of Milo Yiannopoulos, a tech editor at alt-right site Breitbart. Yiannopoulos was banned in June from Twitter for inciting and fueling a harassment campaign against Ghostbusters actress and Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones. An anti-feminist and white nationalist icon, he is known for his attacks on Muslims — after the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, held a press conference denouncing Islam. Out provocatively titled the piece, “Send in the clown: Internet supervillain Milo doesn’t care that you hate him.”

The piece has rightfully led Out readers and the gay commentariat to ask: Why is a gay, progressive magazine showering such attention on one of the culture’s most toxic trolls?


The claim that the 5,000-plus-word profile of Yiannopoulos is justified because he is “central” to the election is farcical. He is an online troll. As a British citizen, he can’t even vote in the U.S. election. He is a guy who was entertaining enough to have duped a publication into showering him with attention because he had a lot of Twitter followers.

Alas, the surest way to turn a clown into a threat is by treating them with the same uncritical eye with which the mainstream media has treated Donald Trump, who has used billions of dollars in free airtime from the major television networks to rail against Muslims, Mexicans and refugees. As John Sides, an associate professor of political science at George Washington University, noted in the Washington Post, the media’s early, fawning coverage of Trump helped propel his rise. Out is feeding a much smaller monster in the same way.


Those of us in the media are not mere stenographers. We decide whose voices to elevate. We amplify information. We generate the narratives that define public discourse. This isn’t an opinion about how journalists should do their jobs; it’s a statement of fact about the power of information and those who wield it.

The main difference among journalists is that some are agnostic about what happens on the other side of the editorial wall. The rest of us are not.

As Hicklin himself told Mic, “It’s dangerous when you start caring about how people respond to what you say. It’s important that you don’t because it won’t let you be truthful.”

I guess Milo really is the Dangerous Faggot.

Social justice is a religion, and journalists are members of its priesthood. So are teachers. It is no coincidence that progressives dominate both professions. If you control “truth” you control society.

When socialists take power they send everyone they don’t kill to reeducation camps to teach them how to think properly. Dissent is a capital crime.

  1. SJW’s are great at rationalizing why it is desirable to take away the freedoms of other people. It’s always for the best of reasons.

    Kind of funny to me that considers themselves the media.

  3. Dora says:


    There were just too many cameras out of their control for their little plan to work. The question is not only one of Clinton cheating, we all expected that, but of the greater conspiracy which included those responsible for holding the debate and construction of the podiums.

    • Somebody says:

      I’ve seen those reports Dora and it is odd, but there could also be a logical explanation. Apparently a light shining up on your face and slightly in front of your face conceals eye bags and dark circles, it’s a camera Hollywood type trick.

      Soooooo, unless someone can prove that there were words scrolling on the “screen” then I think this is a dead end. There are additional images of Hillary standing at the podium with the light during the debate, it looks like a white light not like a screen.

    • Dora says:

      The Conservative Treehouse has a whole thread about the debate and the possible cheating that took place, if anyone is interested. It probably doesn’t matter anyway, since no one will get in trouble for it.


      “The Cleaner” Part II – Cleaner Identified – The Plot Thickens…

      Earlier during our initial review of the debate we identified something that looked entirely suspicious because it is only evidenced for one specific candidate, and one specific lectern. We initially drew attention to it as “The Cleaner”:

  4. votermom says:

    911 Call that Omar Mateen mad proves he was ISIS motivated. But authorities sat on this and let media run with the repressed gay theory. Meanwhile Milo, when he tried to give a speech in the Pulse neighborhood, was not allowed to.
    In short, govt covered up Mateen’ s motives, but treats Milo as too dangerous to speak.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    Milo thrives on controversy because it gives him the opportunity to prove what idiots “media” and “journalism” is. He’s always right😉 It’s no secret he doesn’t like the LGBT SJW’s, so he must be destroyed. Milo hurts “the movement”.

    • jeffhas says:

      The problem with the White Suoremacist men is that Milo is a known Chocoholic… As in, he likes to have relationships with African American guys. I suppose that could make him ‘supreme’, except, (no offense) Milo appears to be ‘the bottom’… Of course, everything I just mentioned is a bunch of stereotype/generalizations. Maybe he actually is the black-man loving swish, that burns crosses on his front lawn as a ‘warm welcome’ for his dark-skinned guests.

  11. jeffhas says:

    “the media’s early, fawning coverage of Trump helped propel his rise”

    Yes, ‘fawning’ is certainly a valid description…?

    Who the f— do they think they’re kidding? It has been a non-stop teardown strategy from the ‘Mexican Rapist’ speech until today – picking apart every word, phrase and sniffle into a negative hit piece.

    “The main difference among journalists is that some are agnostic about what happens on the other side of the editorial wall. The rest of us are not.”

    Actually, you guys are SUPPOSED to be agnostic, present just facts, any slant or agenda makes you something ohter then a journalist.

    “We decide whose voices to elevate. We amplify information. We generate the narratives that define public discourse.”

    Uh NO !!!…. WE the public decide by turning on TV and reading books and magazines, discussing stories amongst one another, commenting on Social Media, etc. If we make it relevant, you guys should report on it. YOU should not be creating a story or narrative that does not exist.

    “This isn’t an opinion about how journalists should do their jobs; it’s a statement of fact about the power of information and those who wield it”

    …. And there you go, revealing yourself for reals; a power hungry monster who gets to wield his so called power over the rest of us…. Well F**K you, I don’t have to read your garbage and give you any more power at all.

      It’s like athe Kardashian Klan, I refuse to click on anything that has anything whatsoever to do with them – no matter how selacious it is (and trust me, sone of this headlines are SOoo dirty and selacious I’M DYING TO PEEK)… Nothing for them, NOT. ONE. CLICK. It is the only way to take their oxygen… Hopefully others will do the same and they’ll go away. seems much closer to asphyxiation.

    • Yep. That drew my eye too, for the sheer hubris. I bet it’s on the syllabus of every journalism class at Columbia U.

  13. DandyTIger says:

    It’s amazing how sheep like my usual prog FB friends are. They’ve been told Trump lost the debates and is now destroyed, so they’re all very, very happy and gloating. Trumps numbers may go up or down in real life, but of course the usual media polls will shift in their sampling and will show down. So the talking points are to push and push the idea that he’s going down. It will be interesting to watch to see if that coordinated effort has the effect they want. I’m not sure the MSM has the power they used to have.

  14. DeniseVB says:

    Here’s the transcript of Milo’s speech about the alt-right. He also has handy suggestions on how to destroy them. What he mostly says, debunks all the crap the lefties and GOPe throw at him. He’s so deplorable…….

    this train crash in Hoboken is ugly. If the train had kept going it could have gone into the Hudson river. For a while I worked in that station. If you ever see the movie Once Upon A Time in America parts of it were filmed there.
    Too early to tell the cause of the crash

    • Somebody says:

      We have a creepy clown lurking in a small town in the western part of our county. Our sheriff publicly warned the clown he better be careful he may get shot. Thus small town is rural with a very high percentage of gun owners.

    • Lulu says:

      It’s clowniphobic and racist. Also deeply discriminatory based on how a person dresses and not who we are as a nation. I am horrified at this deeply troubling and non-inclusive mindset. Why is the clown community being treated thus by such haters?

        • Lulu says:

          They are just exercising their right of freedom of religion to follow the teachings of the Clown God to scare the living shit of people. It is their right to run around screaming “BOO!” and throwing cream pies. We as a nation embrace all races and creeds. That is who we are.

  18. Dora says:

    Reporters have been repeating over and over that there was no terrorism involved. Yet when asked what caused the accident, nobody knows.

    I will not be satisfied until this crash is completely investigated. That includes releasing the name of the man driving the train!

      I remember 22 years or so ago I was at Ole Miss and Jerry Lee was going to do a concert at what was popularly referred to as the “porn mall”: a strip mall out near the Memphis Airport with 2 large strip bars, a dildo store a porn movie store. Would have loved to see that based on the sheer balls of the guy to perform at such a “venue”, but didn’t have a ride back then.

      Very interesting

      • Lulu says:

        I think the polls are showing it is a lost cause. She has pulled out of Ohio too supposedly. But she is still running ads in Texas for some reason. Someone told me yesterday that they mute the tv when her ads come on. I wonder if her fundraising is drying up too.

        • Venus says:

          She unexpectedly cancelled a fundraiser in NC too last week — I’d bet the donors are drying up because she’s no longer the “sure thing.”

          • Somebody says:

            Her schedule shows two rallies in Florida today. Ft. Pierce and Coral Gables, do we know which one was supposedly cancelled?

  42. Venus says:

    The MSM hysteria insisting Hillary *destroyed* Trump in the debate is just like the MSM hysteria after all the debates during the primary that proved Trump was *DOOMED* For example, the debate right before SC? MSM insisted that Trump had just lost SC because that was “Bush country.” Or when Rubio mocked Trump’s “hands” and Trump confronted him on it at a debate — that was so uncouth, Trump was DOOMED! Remember how that all worked out?

    Meanwhile, Hillary had such a great debate she had to cancel an appearance because less than 20 people showed up & she “unexpectedly” cancelled a fundraiser in FL yesterday. Last week she unexpectedly cancelled a fundraiser in NC, and her camp has written off Ohio (MSM is reporting she can win without it/ it’s no longer the “path to the white house” now that she’s tanked there because it is “too white”).

    Her donors are drying up because even they are starting to realize she’s no longer a “sure thing” despite what the MSM is telling us.

    • Somebody says:

      If you go look at her schedule, I don’t think she’s completely given up on Ohio. The schedule shows several stops for Big Dawg in Ohio. Apparently the campaign is sending Bill on a bus tour of Ohio. Given that Bill has had a tendency to have gaffes on the campaign trail lately, this could be fun!!

    • mcnorman says:

      Isn’t it odd that the msm is doing the same thing it did for Barry the wonder boy? Let’s face it, they tore Hillary a new vajayjay in 2008. They were vile liars and did whatever bootlicking needed to be done.
