Let’s Talk About: Milo Yiannopoulos

Although this piece is a year old, its subject, Milo Yiannopolis, unfortunately is still around and taking up space on YouTube and elsewhere with his grotty extreme right-wing opinions. The Cat here describes Yiannopolis’ activities to date, or at least the most notable of them. Like his friendship with the equally appalling James Delingpole of Breitbart, his misogyny, his hatred of gays, including himself, and particularly of lesbians, his anti-feminism, and sheer abuse of anyone, who doesn’t share his opinions, based on his own privileged background. He was also behind a company that was supposed to give awards to the most promising start-up companies, which collapsed leaving its sponsor, the Torygraph, with tens of thousands of pounds of debt. In addition to the clips from the current affairs shows here, Yiannopolis has his own YouTube channel, which features him supposedly defeating and taking down feminists and Black rights’ protesters. In some of those, it has to be said, he appears to be quite civil, at least to some of his interloquetors. This reveals the bigoted troll behind the smooth façade he’s now trying to show.

Most of them are the products of poor parenting, while others are simply bullies having learnt to exploit those weaker or different to themselves while attending their posh boarding schools. It’s in their DNA, you see.
