The Morrison government has banned Milo Yiannopoulos from entering Australia after the controversial right-wing commentator responded to the New Zealand mosque massacre by describing Islam as a "barbaric" and "alien" religious culture.

Oh they'll play the victim.

It's disturbing, watching self-destructive, loathsome, uncivil people act like everybody else is the problem.

More disturbing is that about 30% of the US electorate are those very people.

More disturbing is the GOP caters to their beliefs.

Lee Atwater's Southern Strategy and Reagan's courtship with fundamentalist Christians has empowered these and given their racist, sexist beliefs a legitimate voice in American politics.

Anyone who votes GOP for any reason other than lower taxes is one of the Deplorables.

If the attack had happened in New Zealand, Trump would be calling for Muslim internment camps here.

If it had happened here, Trump would have a declared a State of Emergency he could ride through 2020.

I like Milo, his satire is embracing. Ne does have a sharp wit. As far as I know and I have watched a lot of his material, he has never endorsed or advocated violence. His crime is much like conservative black people. If a black man or woman come outside the role dictated to them by the leftist orthodoxy they are considered traitors or Uncle Toms. A gay man married to a black man, lapsed Catholic, and generally libertarian in his politics is a threat. Doesn't he know what is good for him? Heretics must be burned. One thing this fire brand has the left does not, a sense of humor.

Yep, Milo is a con artist who is following in his daddy's footsteps:

Milo Yiannopoulos: $2 Million in Debt and Booted from Crowdfunding Site

On the heels of news that gay alt-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos is $2 million in debt and was forced to return his wedding ring to Cartier to help cover the cost of what he owed the luxury jeweler, his plan to pay for his lifestyle via crowdfunding was derailed in less than a day when Patreon kicked him off the site saying that it does not associate with "hate groups," according to The Hill.

On a page in which he claimed he was fundraising for his "magnificent 2019 comeback," in return for a donation of $750 per month or more, Yiannopoulos offered such paltry rewards as "Free Milo ringtones," a "personalized thank you message," an "exclusive elite-tier Milo coffee mug," and a "giant signed Milo poster."

Never quite understood this line of "thinking."

Rightwingnuts are always claiming it was leftists who were responsible for the 20th Century's highest death counts: Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, etc.

Yet they're the ones claiming to be be "better armed."

Then again, logic was never their strong suit.

So said Huey Newton. And probably Osama Bin Laden too. I won't argue with that.

Now if there are TWO armed individuals, standing face to face, and both either think they are enslaved by the other or they want the other to be their slave, why then, you have a situation on your hands...

OK, Heinlein. The Lincoln County War was pretty polite.

Anyway, I own two guns. My handgun is at my mom's house 20 miles north and the other, a rifle, is currently stored in a public armory over in Switzerland. The rifle is not for individual protection-- it is for me to use if Switzerland is invaded, lol. I own it by right of being a Swiss citizen through my mother's side. I live in downtown Baltimore and I don't currently have a gun with me. My neighbors are polite to me simply because I try to be polite with them.

This becomes clear if only you pry a little more deeply into the N.R.A.'s logic behind an armed society. An armed society is polite, by their thinking, precisely because guns would compel everyone to tamp down eccentric behavior, and refrain from actions that might seem threatening. The suggestion is that guns liberally interspersed throughout society would cause us all to walk gingerly -- not make any sudden, unexpected moves -- and watch what we say, how we act, whom we might offend.

[snip] I often think of the armed protestor who showed up to one of the famously raucous town hall hearings on Obamacare in the summer of 2009. The media was very worked up over this man, who bore a sign that invoked a famous quote of Thomas Jefferson, accusing the president of tyranny. But no one engaged him at the protest; no one dared approach him even, for discussion or debate -- though this was a town hall meeting, intended for just such purposes. Such is the effect of guns on speech -- and assembly. Like it or not, they transform the bearer, and end the conversation in some fundamental way. They announce that the conversation is not completely unbounded, unfettered and free; there is or can be a limit to negotiation and debate -- definitively.

The very power and possibility of free speech and assembly rests on their non-violence. The power of the Occupy Wall Street movement, as well as the Arab Spring protests, stemmed precisely from their non-violent nature. This power was made evident by the ferocity of government response to the Occupy movement. Occupy protestors across the country were increasingly confronted by police in military style garb and affect.

#39 | Posted by Hans at 2019-03-19 11:59 AM | Reply

#39 | Posted by Hans Be sure to put a red light on your porch to tell everyone how virtuous you are. Announce to everyone you have no firearm inside. I am sure the thugs that eventually kick in your door will be polite. Call the police if you are able, when seconds count, they are minutes away. Not all people respect you. Those actually respect nothing except their own wish and desire, and you can count on one in 20 people to be a criminal in attitude and action. I disagree with you, but I would never imitate violence over an argument in policy which neither of us have much control over. I don't want to take your stuff, kill you or rule over you. Completely at odds with the big state leftism.

Most people do.

"If they tried, they would find certainty and likely discover if there is an afterlife."

Unless you have your loaded gun in your hand 24x7, constantly pointing at windows and doors, it doubtful "they" would find "certainty."

Most likely, if they were armed and saw you coming out of a sleep and grabbing your gun it is you who would end up discovering if there is an afterlife.
