Brocker.Org: Breitbart provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos is shouted down at UC Davis but receives the previous phrase – Los Angeles Times


There was a bit of jostling — and at least one thrown cup of coffee — Friday evening at Davis.

But typically there was a lot of chanting and yelling as a number of hundred vociferous protesters succeeded in shutting down an visual appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos, the puerile 33-12 months-old Breitbart writer who is very best recognised for receiving banned from Twitter just after leading a demand of racist harassment towards “Ghostbusters” actress Leslie Jones.

This was supposed to have been a prevent on Yiannopoulos’s “Dangerous Faggot” school campus tour.  He was to have been joined by Martin Shkreli, the ethics-challenged pharmaceutical entrepreneur who jacked up the value of an AIDS drug prior to being indicted on federal securities fraud charges. Past 7 days, Shkreli was suspended from Twitter just after harassing Lauren Duca, the journalist whose Teen Vogue essay, “Trump is Gaslighting America,” went viral.

For everyone who has adopted the debates more than campus political correctness, Yiannopoulous offers very little new. His appeal seems to be a matter of packaging he is a flamboyant gay Brit who wears jewellery, makeup and Gucci accessories, and carries a gold lame backpack. I guess this is what passes for daring on the right.

To give you the flavor of his schtick, here’s a sample of points he said recently at the College of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, exactly where, amongst other points, he mocked a transgender college student by identify for submitting a Title IX grievance about toilet entry:

Black Lives Issue is the top divisive motion.”

“If white privilege is a factor, why are men and women performing so difficult to be black? All of the award displays and cultural situations favor black tradition.”

 “‘Man up’ is a massive no-no for liberals, intent on doing away with masculinity from our tradition. ‘Toxic masculinity’ and ‘rape culture’ and all the other idiotic points they like to say in their war towards guys.”
