I think this is a psyop....like Trump hysteria. Like WHAT IS GOING ON???
The "left' (let's call them the "antifa" left, the morally bankrupt neoliberal/anarchist left, not the real anti-establishment left) went into TIZZIES over presentations given by Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter, Christine Sommers, and Steven Crowder last year. Three of them minus Ms.Coulter had a gig together at the University of Massachusetts where they were all heckled so loudly that they could barely get a word out. "Antifa" smashed windows, toppled garbage bins, set the night on fire and in general wreaked incredibly depraved, desperate, brainwashed havoc at the supposed "birthplace of free speech" (what an arrogant presumption!) University of California at Berkeley in retaliation for Milo alone speaking
And if you're like me, you have to ask...
I would believe that "antifa" (oh god YUCK, misogynist fascists whose prototype "anti-racist action" members I dealt with in my youth of youths) was sincere about fighting racism and social injustice in this country, if they were protesting like wildcats the israeli lobby and AIPAC and every visit ol' bibi makes to his lackeys here in America. But NOOOOO - they protest a man who has barely been in office a year who has barely done anything beyond what any of his predecessors have done in regards to promoting the goals of US imperialism and mega capitalism in the world
But here they are, screaming and yelling and whining about some bimbo who provokes anger for a living
He does this for a living. And he told you so. And you then give him his living.
Milo and other anti-feminists are always making disingenuous claims like the ones listed here. Breast cancer is big business for Big Cancer with no cure in sight, but plenty of money-making fundraising opportunities exploited by organizations like Susan G Komen. According to their own website, "80 cents of every dollar goes to mission programs and services" whatever the hell that means; very little to actual research. Most medical research in the past (and even now) has been conducted on men's bodies. Women's bodies were considered and still are considered too complicated for research study; men don't menstruate or get pregnant. Milo also doesn't mention how the male medical establishment took over from women who historically were in charge of taking care of the sick, taking credit for their discoveries and remedies. The role of midwives who (and this is recorded fact, you can go to the Case Western Reserve Medical School Dittrick Medical museum to see the exhibit) was purposely undermined in the mainstream media in a further attempt to lift the status of mostly male physicians and the male-dominated American Medical Association. Men also typically won't seek medical care or visit a doctor regularly, so how is that the fault of "Feminism"? WHEW
I once fell for this too - when I was in the throes of neoliberal feminism (otherwise known as "coachella" feminism, hillary feminism, anything not truly intersectional)
All I saw was "feminism is cancer" fall from his mouth in a brief clip of a video, and I was incensed.
How dare he? The mother fucker??!!
Well, he is a mother fucker, but the thing is, not a very competent one, and not one to be burning trash cans over
this video is my someone else
And anyone with any real sense sees it (anyone not in the throes of any political brainwashing)
The other day at one of the libraries I frequent, I saw his latest book displayed on the latest books shelf. i had been curious to read it, but i wasn't going to make any great strides of effort to obtain it, but here it was, easily in front of me, so i took a chance, because i knew i would not be disappointed; and I wasn't
The guy's an incompetent loon, and what's even crazier, he doesn't even try to be competent or to hide his incompetence. He blatantly lies and then backs up his lies with articles that don't even back up his lies, but he mentions them as his sources anyway. He is that confident that his followers won't look these articles up or follow up on any of the nonsense that he spouts
He reminds me of a college student who has to write a paper and uses the first sources they can find on the internet to back up their claims
You want to burn trash cans? Over that?
We must SHUT DOWN everything we don't agree with, everything we deem "Evil", but why? when it's just so easy to debunk???
Diana Johnstone is right when she states that when the left want to shut down the voices of nazis and other evil doers, they show that they don't have the foundation to argue them down - their own arguments are flawed. And everyone is a mixed bag, everyone has something to offer, it's UP TO YOU to be discerning and think for yourself if whatever it is is something you want to adopt in the repertoire of ideas you accept into your head.
You can also learn things reading the work of people who don't agree with you LIKE NO WAY
Milo is right (and everyone on the right who says the same thing) when he says that criticism of him doesn't come from an honest place. It doesn't. The people who criticize trump and right wing pundits don't actually care about deportation or immigrants or the environment or sexual assault, they are only angry when "the other guy" does it. They're not out en masse with those stupid p---- hats protesting the sexual shenanigans of Hollywood. They're not calling for boycotts of hollywood films. They're not boycotting tv. They're not critical of mainstream media that has promoted the interest of corporations and government scams for DECADES. They just pile all their anger on a couple of harmless targets that don't really rock the big-boat-grand-scheme of things AT ALL
