“Everyone at home can appreciate that when Donald Trump is voted into the white house, and the whole republican party absolutely hates him, that something has to change. There has to be a break at some point.
This sort of populist, nationalist revolution that is happening, the anti-political correctness, pro-free speech revolution that is happening all over the western world is not going anywhere.
For the last 30 years speech codes have been the order of the day, and right-wing politicians have run terrified and screaming from allegations of racism and sexism, and basically given ground on every serious issue.
Well, that’s changing, with the rise of bold electorates and bold politicians.
Donald Trump is an example of that.
I’m an example of a cultural figure related to that, that social change.
And we are going to represent the next 30 years.”
I’m confident that Milo is not talking about the type of speech he had just apologized for when he speaks about his own importance. His apology was confined to anyone he believed could be offended by his flippant and cavalier attitude towards adults having sex with minors- specifically anyone who was a victim of child abuse. He makes no apology for anything else.
Unfortunately, Milo’s rise as an outrageous free speech advocate was so quick he felt that he was a superhero. It can be a heady experience, and even the most trained and savvy public figure can wake up blindsided by themselves. I think some of the things he said on the infamous podcast were sickening.
I think 99.99% of what he’s said beyond that podcast is important. That this anti-left speech came from a gay man was even more impactful, lending it more gravitas. That it was gaining so much favorable attention meant it needed to be quashed, quickly.
Unfortunately for us, and conveniently for our enemies, whether it be anti-Trump, never-Trump or the radical left, Milo handed them a cookie. They used it.
Can he continue to be a huge thorn in the side of the enemy we seek to defeat?
Possibly. But it will take many to overlook his homosexuality and be grateful for the majority of his message – when the left successfully stifles anyone, we all lose.
If I believed the people responsible for this successful campaign were only interested in protecting children I’d be with them. That is not what happened here. They didn’t save the world from a pedophile. It’s not at all what they were interested in.
If they were, George Takei would be next on the chopping block – (nsfw)
Takei is safe on the left.
