CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 21, 2016 — Milo Yiannopoulos is a British journalist and entrepreneur. He works for Breitbart.com as technology editor.
Yiannopoulos is also gay.
Writing for Breitbart following the Orlando massacre, the outspoken journalist had some powerful words for the American people, politicians, the Obama Administration and the gay community.
Yiannopoulos brought French author Alexis de Tocqueville into the conversation with a truthful observation that might make many Americans uncomfortable: “It is a uniquely American trait that your country has relied on foreigners to take true stock of American culture.”
He then took his own homeland to task with a warning to the United States by referencing the influx of Muslims into Great Britain which, for him at least, has made his home unrecognizable.
“As a country, I believe it should serve as a warning sign for the United States, which must face its Muslim problem before it is too late. I myself am leaving the UK behind, as I no longer recognize much of my beloved London.”
He pointed out a grotesque headline in a Turkish newspaper that few have heard or seen because it was not reported in the U.S. It read, “50 perverts killed in bar.”
This is thinking promulgated by President Obama’s “religion of peace,” which Yiannopoulos refers to as the “religion of death.” Take your pick.
“America has a Muslim problem,” wrote Yiannopoulos. “Notice my wording carefully here. It isn’t a radical Muslim problem. It isn’t an ISIS problem, an Al Qaeda problem, a Taliban problem, or any of the Muslim terror groups that have sprung up in 2016. The terror attack on Saturday is an expression of mainstream Muslim values.”
Like it or not, that last sentence tells it like it is in only a dozen words. It’s time that the American people wake up to that realization if they want their families to be safe and secure.
Yiannopoulos’ commentary is a slow-burn example of virtually everything that is wrong with the way the Obama Administration, the media and the left have approached Islam.
With each successive paragraph his anger builds.
“Liberals always wait to determine the race and sex of a shooter before deciding how they will attack gun rights. Let me give you a clue, liberals – Muslims don’t just use rifles, they use bombs, airplanes and knives (too).”
Among the most popular terms currently resounding through American society today is “Islamophobia,” which is defined as the “irrational fear of Muslims.” Milo’s response is simple, “Fear of Islam is entirely rational.”
Given the multitude of senseless deaths and horrific attacks throughout the world since September 11, 2001, Yiannopoulos has a legitimate argument.
It is here that Yiannopoulos really begins to seethe while offering some surprising points that will not be even whispered by the mainstream press:
“It’s a sad fact that Muslims rely on being enabled by liberals and overly-tolerant leaders from other faiths to help them spread their poisonous ideas. With all of this information implicating Islam, a reasonable question to ask is why the government and liberal media refuse to speak the plain truth.”
At long last, some people are finally asking that of President Obama.
Yiannopoulos challenges his gay constituency with a perspective that other minorities are also pondering:
“Liberals consider everyone that is not a straight white male to be on a pyramid of victimhood. That is why Muslims can act and speak with impunity against other groups like gays, Jews, and women– they have been placed at the pinnacle of the victim pyramid. The major flaw of liberal logic, with apologies to the term logic, is that in this case the top of the victim pyramid is intent on murdering and abusing the entire rest of the pyramid!”
Liberals have pitted so many groups against each other under their leadership that they are now being forced to make choices. Thanks to Obama, Muslims are currently the favored group, which gives Yiannopoulos’ observations more than enough clout for the groups at the lower levels of the pyramid.
Consider Yiannopoulos’ final salvo:
“While liberals were crying and hashtagging, the notoriously Christian Chick-Fil-A, which is normally closed on Sunday, opened up to feed those donating blood to keep LGBT victims alive” (emphasis added).
In his closing message to his gay associates, he expresses the difference between merely talking about something and acting upon it.
“The LGBT allies of the past might call you brave and like your social media posts, but the Christian right are men and women that will fight for your rights, and more importantly, teach you how to fight and shoot on your own.”
Two short phrases sum it all up, “Actions speak louder than words,” and “Armed Gays don’t get bashed.”
