Twitterbanned gay Jew Milo Yiannopoulos still having trouble winning over Internet Nazis

Milo Yiannopoulos: Gay Jewish King of the Nazis?
Milo Yiannopoulos: Gay Jewish King of the Nazis?

Pity poor Milo Yiannopoulos! It turns out that his Twitter ban isn’t the only painful public rejection that Breitbart’s bully “journalist” has been dealing with this convention week.

No, he’s also having more than a little bit of trouble with some of the Internet Nazis he’s been trying so hard to woo.

It turns out that a gay man of Jewish descent who can’t stop talking about how much he loves having sex with black dudes is not universally loved by homophobic racist anti-Semites. I did Nazi that coming! (Oh, wait, I did. Everyone did.)

On Tuesday, Milo hosted a “Gays for Trump” event in a Cleveland hotel not far from the Republican National Convention. It was an odd event in many ways, and not just because it was being hosted by a British man who bears little resemblance to the traditionally buttoned-down Log Cabin Republican, speaking at a podium flanked by huge pictures of shirtless twinks.

No, it was also odd because its guest list included a number of well-known white supremacists and their fellow travellers. Geert Wilders, a far-right Dutch politician whose racist rhetoric sometimes echoes that of Joseph Goebbels, gave a speech; white “nationalists” Richard Spencer and Peter Brimelow were also in attendance, as was professional Islamophobe Pamela Geller and right-wing smear journalist Chuck C. Johnson.

But not everyone on the alt right was happy about the event. Yesterday, the Internet Nazi tabloid the Daily Stormer launched an attack on what it called “the dick-loving kike and self-appointed leader of the Neo-Nazi movement.” (Milo was raised Catholic, but his mother was Jewish.)

Not exactly mincing his words, the Daily Stormer’s Andrew Anglin denounced “homosexualist Jew Milo Yianiannaopopolous” for

co-opting edginess, first infiltrating the #Gamergate movement as a means to anally-violate confused video-gaming teenagers in his homeland of Britain, before infiltrating the Neo-Nazi movement and using it as a vehicle to tour the United States and facilitate gay sex with bi-curious college students.

While Anglin appreciated Milo’s work in “the trolling campaign against the gorilla-like star of the new feminist Ghostbusters film,” he insisted that the “few funny things” Milo has done weren’t enough

to justify his attempt to normalize man-on-man anal sex with Blacks in the Nazi movement [or his] selling “Big Black Cock” t-shirts for women.

Anglin — who’s been openly critical of Milo for some time — couldn’t even bring himself to get worked up about Milo’s suspension from Twitter.

My hope is that Milo just goes away at this point.

I’m really sick of him.

It isn’t cute, it’s just weird.

Probably, on some cosmic level, it is hilarious that large numbers of people are like, “yeah, great, the Nazi movement has a homosexual Jew leader.” I am able to glimpse the cosmic hilarity of this at certain moments, but then I immediately return to the reality situation, which is that I hate this.

Well, hate is what you guys are best at.

@Mish:

@Cat Mara, thanks for linking to the Laurie Penny article.

You’re welcome. I confess I’ve been a bit of a Laurie Pennie fanboi since Warren Ellis had her guest-blog on his site a few years ago.

I love her writing, and this was one of the best.

Agreed. Though I still love “I Was A Manic Pixie Dream Girl” and “50 Shades of Socialist Feminism“. “My inner goddess sprouts a thousand tentacles and demands blood sacrifice.” 😀 😀

@Cat Mara, for a second there I thought you meant this Warren Ellis:

aka world’s best fiddler and Nick Cave’s right-hand man. Then I realised I had the wrong Mr Ellis 🙂

I love those Penny pieces, too. I think Manic Pixie Dream Girl was the first of hers I read. Brilliant stuff.

It often happens; apparently, both men have had to start questioning journalists ringing to arrange interviews with them to make sure the journalist has the “right” Warren Ellis in question for their publication…

(I am a fan of both of them; I defy anyone to listen to Dirty Three’s “The Zither Player” and not have a shit-eating grin of joy on their faces by the end of it…)

God, yes. Exactly. Jebus, you have excellent taste 😛
The first time I saw them live (many moons ago) the whole audience was transfixed. We’d never heard the like. And at the risk of sounding cheesy, I love seeing Nick Cave when he’s around Warren. But then, I love Nick full stop XD

Aw, gee, thanks. (looks at ground, scuffs dirt with shoe)

At the risk of derailing this thread entirely into a Dirty Three lovefest: they do that. Seriously. First time I saw them was supporting the Bad Seeds, mid 90s sometime, I guess between “Let Love In” and “The Boatman’s Call”. This was before Warren had officially joined the band or at least not played on any albums yet as a main member. My friends and I had not head Dirty Three yet; we vaguely knew they were instrumental and were not figuring on it being much fun… and then, it started. A crazy dude and two nondescript-looking guys take to the stage, the first guy starts playing his violin with his back to the audience, stalking the stage like he’s possessed, giving these weird rambling monologues between songs… we’re just going, “what the hell is this?” And then for the last song they play– I think it must have been “Authentic Celestial Music” but I didn’t know it at the time– and it just keeps building and building and building until ping!, ping!, ping!, ping! he breaks his violin strings one after the other, drops the instrument to the ground and walks off stage and everyone is like, “what the hell did we just see/hear?!” One of the best gigs I’ve ever seen… and then Warren Ellis is back on stage 20 minutes playing with the Bad Seeds!

I just don’t get guys like this.

Narcissism only explains so much!

A Jewish, super-femme “Camp Gay” person being an outspoken Pro-Everything-That-Is-Anathema-To-Him-And-His-Demographic.

It boggles my mind!

I can understand the other loudmouths to some degree but this guy….I DON’T GET IT!

It’s like he read Scott Lively’s The Pink Swastika and took it AS FACT!

@Cat Mara, that was uncanny – you just described exactly my memory of my first Dirty Three/Bad Seeds show (even down to the mid-90s time period).
I have refrained from gushing because as you say, no need to derail the thread with unrelated albeit awesome topics 🙂
I was smiling for ages after reading your comment.

I’m very grateful to you for introducing me to Dirty Three. I’ve been listening to them quite obsessively this morning. It’s not exactly conducive to creating a productive working atmosphere, but it’s just so hypnotic. I love that really raw almost lazy style (I know it’s actually very well done, but maybe you know what I mean, perhaps laid back is the phrase? Dunno, anyway…)

Now though it’s reminded me of some other music a friend used to play a lot years ago. I’ve messaged her to ask what that was. As she’s a big Nick Cage fan* its may we’ll be Dirty Three anyway.

(* to the extent that if he ever goes missing, first place to check would be her basement)

Actually, the foremost proponent of the word “homosexualist” (and also “heterosexualist”) was Gore Vidal. This was largely a matter of grammatical strictness–he held that “homosexual” and “heterosexual” were adjectives, and absolutely should not be used as nouns (he thought the same of “human”).

@ Turan

That Guardian style guide we were chatting about a bit ago takes the same view. It also says gay and lesbian are adjectives and shouldn’t be used as nouns, although it says “gays and lesbians” is acceptable.

It doesn’t go for the ‘ist’ suffix though, it says to use man or woman; which makes sense.
