commented on Milo Yiannopoulos Gets Dropped from CPAC
How about one of you "how could you give him a platform" incredulous children point to a case where a blowhard ideologue was rejected by media outlets and subsequently disappeared?
If you aren't afraid of the efficacy of his arguments, why are you afraid? If you are afraid of the efficacy of his arguments, are you too stupid to pick them apart yourself? He is not writing the new Mein Kampf, he's a hack plagiarist.

commented on Milo Yiannopoulos: Girls Are In Danger When Adult Trans Women Use Public Toilets But 13-Year-Old Boys Can Benefit From Giving Head To Adult Males
@6 exactly. Bill's commentary is pretty stupid but I am glad he stands up for the idea of letting ideas stand on their own merit vs suppressing people you don't want to hear from.
I think the more classically liberal idea of open discussion and free exchange of ideas is gaining traction again, but there is still a large contingent on the general popular left/progressive bloc that feels they must scold and shame and silence anyone who speaks against The Truth because of the mewling snowflakes who can't handle themselves and wilting lillies who don't want to recite "sticks and stones" for the mewling snowflakes.
This is really the first article/post I've seen that makes the vapid trollbaity crap that Milo spews plainly obvious because it *uses his own words*.
Everyone else wants to whinge about general opinion about Milo and his journey from Breitbart and yada yada yada – listen to his couple of appearances on Joe Rogan's podcast. Listen to him on Maher. He's a moron narcissist who trolls at the level of a teenager. There's no deep thoughts happening.
Let him get out there and show that to everyone - shunning him just makes him look even more correct to the morons who are going to seek him out regardless of how you boycott or protest, the same way the people who voted for Trump got emboldened with every shame-flushed shushing they got from the I'm With Her crowd.

@14 I'm not thinking of a voluntary departure, I'm thinking of some new never-before-seen ridiculousness that results in something more forceful. He still clings to this "people love me and I'm great at everything I do" illusion that has fallen big and hard since the election. He's also dumb as a doornail. I think he's going to get even more flustered and irrational and fuck himself out of office somehow if Congress doesn't get to him first.
commented on Girls Has Been a Gift—a Gift with Baggage, but a Gift Nonetheless
I had to stop watching Girls because I couldn't keep dealing with what a terrible person Lena Dunham is vs how obviously intelligent she also is. I can't watch people capable improving as themselves as people who keep turning back into the worst of themselves because it's ultimately most familiar. Selfish people suck.
