Yiannopoulos, Milo. “Dangerous”, Dangerous Books, 2017.
Here is the book that no one wanted to read ye already has 830 reviews just three weeks after publication. Even more shocking than that is that some of the reviews are extremely favorable.
By now everyone knows how the left took him yet Milo comes out fighting and using wit and humor to prove what he has to say.
Milo says that, “In short, I’m the Left’s worst nightmare: a living, breathing refutation of identity politics, and proof that free speech and the truth wrapped in a good joke will always be more persuasive and more powerful than identity politics.” This book is well written, and backed up with facts. It is extraordinarily funny, and gets the modern conservative viewpoint across. Like him or not,
Yiannopoulos is a refreshing voice. He is open and candid and even though I do not agree with most of what he has to say, this is an interesting and at times infuriating read. He lets us know early on that his book is “for open minded, independent thinkers and free speech advocates, not for ANTI First Amendment (ANTIFA) fascists or any other easily triggered tantrum throwing cry babies”.
“I’m no hypocrite,” states Milo Yiannopoulos tells us early on that he is not a hypocrite, “I tell the truth, always. That’s my whole fucking problem.”
However the truth that he tells is his version of it and it has been a problem for the guy who calls himself a “dangerous faggot.” (Don’t you just want to throw up here?).
This book was under contract to Simon & Schuster but they canceled the because of Milo’s remarks that condone pederasty. These remarks were made by Milo on a podcast last year and were reported in mainstream media. Milo was also uninvited from speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference and forced to resign as tech editor for Breitbart, the news website often credited for helping elect President Donald Trump. This was quite a letdown for the fabulously gay Trump supporter, but he vowed that he would quickly and here is less than six months later with this book that he published on his own imprint, Dangerous Books.
Milo is a 32-year-old English journalist, political provocateur and occasional drag queen who first gained notoriety covering the #GamerGate controversy, which essentially concerned the issue of political correctness and video game content. This was a great concern to millennials and the multi-billion dollar gaming industry. His coverage brought in many young readers to Breitbart and his star began to rise. Ion 2016 he had a real experience with fame when he and co-writer Allum Bakhari published “An Establishment Conservative’s Guide To The Alt-Right,” a taxonomy of the alternative right political movement supporting candidate Trump.
“The article rightly pointed out that in today’s politically correct environment, where white males have been cast as the villain, it’s become difficult for whites to express any sort of white identity or culture without being hectored by some so-called Social Justice Warrior.”
This is not a new thought and Milo used it as best he could. He and his co-writer denied being a part of any movement, but with his face was soon all over mainstream media as the leader of the Alt-Right, operating out of the Alt-Right’s Berlin Bunker, Breitbart, then commanded by “notorious alleged crypto-nazi Steve Bannon.”
Milo’s simply said, “On the one hand, these guys are declaring the alt-right to be a racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic hate group…. “On the other, they’re saying that a gay Jew with a black boyfriend is the head of it.”
The majority of the alternative right can be considered to be racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic, and subscribes to a conspiracy theory known as “Cultural Marxism” that blames Jewish academic theorists for the alleged decline in Western culture, a line of thought Milo strongly promotes in this book. promote front-and-center in Dangerous.
More on that later. Despite his reputation as a public intellectual, there’s very little standard political content in “Dangerous”. At different times and at various points, Milo has called himself a conservative, a conservative libertarian, a cultural libertarian and once said that he’s not a libertarian at all. In the end he says people hate him and each chapter is dedicated to one of the various groups that despise Milo because as Milo says, “I’m not one of them. I don’t fit into the box they demand of me. I don’t fit into any fucking box. I am large, I contain multitudes.”
His megalomania may be the truest thing he says in the book and it is also symptomatic of nihilism. Milo sees his book as a guide to political activism in the internet age. “It is a guide to trolling by an author who is arguably one of the internet’s most successful trolls”. Milo claims when it comes to trolling, he’s second only to “Daddy,” his favored nickname for Trump.
He tells us here that being de-platformed has only made him stronger, particularly with the growing audience of Breitbart behind him. He shares that
“Trolling is the perfect weapon of a political dissident intent on spreading forbidden or inconvenient truths.” However, he steers clear of the truth that Cultural Marxism is understood by the vast majority of the alternative right as a modern Protocol of the Elders of Zion, the late nineteenth century forgery alleging a Jewish plot to control the world.
Milo correctly notes that Cultural Marxism traces its roots back to the Frankfurt School, a group of German Marxist academics who immigrated to the United States in 1935. However what he does not say is that virtually all the scholars were Jewish.
That fact may not mean much to Milo but the theory that Cultural Marxists control everything is usually used as an anti-Semitic idea yet Milo offers it up without reference “to Jewish academics, and “Hollywood,” or “mainstream media” or “leftist” or “progressive” or even “bankster” is inserted”. In its most common form, there’s no question as to the eternal scheming Jew pulling the strings.
Milo tells us that “In the following pages I’ll teach you how to cause the same sort of mayhem I do in defense of the most important right you have in America: the right to think, do, say and be whatever the hell you want.”
He believes that by wrapping himself in the American flag, he gains him dramatic license to pretend the significant racist, sexist, homophobic, and anti-Semitic elements in the alternative right don’t actually exist.
He says that these are kids blowing off steam and that the trolls are winning because “we’re the only ones telling the truth any more.” We should know better than to listen to those who claim to carry the truth. Milo claims to be the spokesman for “those white deplorables without a college education Milo claims to be a spokesman for” who are all over the internet these days. Truth is easily the most misused word in English and probably every other language.
If Milo isn’t carrying the truth, what does he carry? It seems to me to be outrage delivered and aimed at the easiest and most vulnerable targets of the progressive left, defined as the “latte-sipping metropolitan voters, fairy tale dwelling antiwar activists, ugly women (sigh), and minorities.”
Milo has completely mischaracterized and insulted the opposition. He is unaware that there hasn’t been a sizable antiwar movement in this country since at least the election of President Barack Obama, and realistically since 9/11.
We get some very strong feelings from a guy who continues to dabble in identity politics. As one reviewer said, “Milo the Jewish drag queen who only has sex with black men is playing rural white America, the so-called deplorables who helped elect Donald Trump, for rubes… he wants attention. He’s getting it. He’s oh so outrageous.”
Milo doesn’t have a clue about culture, politics, and the people who actually live in the United States.. “Milo, a gay Jewish man who dates black men, has embraced, some say hijacked, an ideology whose adherents would kill him on the spot if they got the chance to do it anonymously, a fact he dismisses with the wave of a limp wrist. Call it gay privilege. He’d never admit he’s taking advantage of it.
Nevertheless, that’s what he’s doing. Milo the truth-teller, the half-Jewish anti-Semite, the half-Catholic alter boy sucking Father Mike’s dick—an anonymous priest he claims he willingly had sex with at the age of 14—is only in it for the lols — the laugh-out-louds — as the kids he so creepily covets say these days.
Other than that, Milo has literally nothing to offer as far as solutions to our present dilemma are concerned in Dangerous. It’s news to this dangerous faggot, who has apparently never dated a woman, that birth control pills have side effects and that abortion is a hard decision for any woman to make. Fat and ugly people deserve to be ridiculed because, well, they’re not beautiful like him.”
