He is a strong advocate against PC Culture and anti feminist. The man got banned from Twitter for allegedly harassing Leslie Jones. He is currently trending #1 on Twitter and Facebook.

Gay conservative is like "Jews for Hitler"

Let me clue you in, there is a HUGE difference between economics and social issues, a huge difference between putting up with offensive speech, and putting up with bullshit of using law to discriminate and shit on your fellow citizens. 

He is perfectly entitled to vote GOP, but to me that would be as fucking stupid as Susan B Anthony voting for a party that doesn't want her to vote. 

He can staple his nuts to the wall and vote for a party that hates him, but that is fucking bat shit insane to me.

Sad, perhaps, but not insane, imho. Our city council had an openly gay conservative. He wasn't outright hateful of other minorities, but he wasn't trying hard to help them, either. He was very anti-infrastructure, which bugged the hell out of me. Browned out fire stations on a rotation basis, thus increasing response times, thus imperiling lives, including my own at least once. 

Times are changing. I wish him well, but I'm not much of a reader anyway. He'll be OK without my money.

Why the fuck do people keep treating 'anti-feminist' like a good thing.

Also Milo is a self-hating gay, so him being gay means literally less than nothing. He's a fucking piece of shit much like the rest of the alt-right.

RE: Milo Yiannopoulos; the man twitter banned got a book deal. Currently #2 on Amazon.
I mean, I think the bigger point is this:

Milo Yiannopoulos Wrote:"I'll tell you one UW-Milkwaukee student that does not need to man up, and that is Justine Kramer," who is a transgender woman who attended the school and was not necessarily known by everyone there to be transgendered, although she did publically protest the University's locker room policy. "Do you know about Justine Kramer? Have any of you come into contact with this person? This quote unquote nonbinary trans woman forced his way into the women's locker rooms this year. He got into the women's room the way liberals always operate, using the government and the courts to weasel their way where they don't belong. [Title IX is being] used to put men into women's bathrooms. I have known some passing trannies in my life... which is to say transgender people who pass as the gender they would like to be considered. The way that you know he's failing is I'd almost still bang him. It's just... it's just a man in a dress, isn't it? I should reapply my lipstick."

If you think it is all right to violate someone's privacy by outing them as transgendered at a public forum, then you're simply a person with poor character. And I don't say that lightly. Milo is part of a growing trend coming from every portion of the spectrum (and I'm going to completely avoid saying that it comes from any one direction more than the other) that engages in "political discourse" by saying inflammatory things and trying to get a rise out of those who disagree, and then says, essentially, "look at those Republicans/Democrats/Christians/Atheists squirm - they are clearly not as confident/smart/tough as us." That is the very definition of immaturity. Most people are perfectly willing to take the moral high ground against anyone "on the other side" and completely absolve those "on their own side" of any violation (i.e. "Liberals have no morals and resort to insults when confronted with legitimate issues! It's awesome when Milo calls Leslie Jones 'barely literate' and a 'black dude'!" or "Conservatives are backwards idiots who can't handle their worldview being challenged! I swear, if that professor talks about the 'gay marriage debate' like both sides are equal, I'm walking right out of this classroom." YES I'M STRAWMANNING BOTH SIDES, GODDAMMIT. YOU GET MY FUCKING POINT). That is the height of intellectual dishonesty.

It's as though there are adults who live in the real world and think about real issues, and then there's people who think talking about the new Ghostbusters movie is an important issue of our time. And it seems like the population of such people overlaps heavily with the population of people who talk about social justice warriors not being able to handle the real world and being scared of being adults and such. Milo is the patron saint of these people, one of many groups of people who think they really are better than everyone else. And that is the pinnacle of narcissism. He is narcissism embodied.

Because it gets clicks. There are plenty of frustrated males on the internet, trying to find someone to blame for the fact, that they're not getting the top-shelf p*ssy they were promised by all the movies and video games, from which they 'd learned about the real world. Feminists make for ideal scapegoats, especially if you find one, or two dumb/crazy women on YouTube and treat them like they're the pope of feminism.

That's part of the problem with the world these days... anyone can take any opinion, even a made-up stupid idiotic opinion, accuse "the other side" of holding that opinion, and then if called on it can go on the internet and find 10,000 people who loudly rabidly agree with said stupid idiotic opinion.  No one can ever refute the argument "conservatives hate gay people" or "liberals think white people should have to pay taxes to black people for slavery" or "Christians literally think Obama is a demon" or "atheists actually want to kill Christians" or "feminists want to castrate every male so they can't rape" or "british people want to recolonize Africa because the natives have shown they're lesser humans" or whatever the fuck anyone says about anything, because if I present a source or example that says, "no, that's dumb," the person presenting the ridiculous assertion can find a source/example saying "well this guy clearly thinks that."  And I'll say, "well clearly not everyone does" and they other person says "this guy does too" and then we either exchange sources for 45 hours until it becomes apparent that there are far fewer sources supporting the idiotic statement, or what actually happens in real life is the person who doesn't believe ridiculous things is also not as committed to proving the ridiculous thing is false as the proponent is to proving the ridiculous thing true, and so the person who is correct gets tired and goes home, and the proponent of the idiotic idea, like the chess pigeon of fable, knocks over the pieces, poops on the board, and goes back to his corner of the internet with one more story of how he showed those stupid gullible sheeple what was what.

I honestly think Milo has some good points, I agree with him on his "free speech absolutism", I can't fault his views on that.

But it's lost in vitriol and doing the exact same things he claims he doesn't like. He does play into identity politics a lot, and he also sensationalises cases of immigrant rape while ignoring Trump's bragging about sexual assault. He comes off like a massive hypocrite on some things.

I think half the things he says are either trolling or being deliberately outrageous, and he gets power from that, because people take him so seriously doing it. I think the outrage against him feeds into what he says, and even proves him right in some cases. That's why he has gravitas, more because of how people react to him than what he actually says.

Ann Coulter writes books and shitheads read them all the time.  What's so amazing about any of that?

The difference being that it's always tongue in cheek with Stern. Others take themselves far to seriously and simply end up being massive assholes.
