Fight the assholes. They are coming.
How do you know it's the anarchists and not the blacks?
Gobbles didn't need to be a brilliant propagandist, did he? He had people like y'all to do his job for him.
E.B. Hall once wrote "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it". (written in regards to how much Voltaire valued Free Speech) She was English, but she knew what Free Speech was.
To protest against the subject matter of someones Free Speech is one thing. But, when one tries to stop Free Speech from happening, It's called Censorship.
Personally, I think that Milo Y. is a Dick. But, I also respect his right to express his opinion.
People go to college and get taught about all of the 67 gender identities but God forbid they learn how to fucking spell.
Millions of people were murdered by these scum bags as they ranted on and encouraged the attacks on those they despised such as the jews, gypsies, eastern europeans and others. They seek power to encourage their murderous history. This slime bag is getting rich from his bigotry and book campaign. One of his nazi cohorts shot someone critically. He should have been run out of town on a rail. Wake the fuck up.
His parody of the left is a needed tonic for self for those whom think political introspection is a good thing. Milo's speech is totally harmless and those drawing Nazi comparisons are just trying to get their daily Godwin's law fix.
In the coming years more cultural scolds on the left will throw temper tantrums (and in fact, fists), and will be met with the 1-in-12 Washington residents who carry a concealed weapon. And, frankly, nobody will feel quite sorry...
White supremecy falls under this spectrum, but Western Civilization is far more encompassing and insidious. It includes discrimination against a myriad of "others" (I.e. foreigners, women, religious minorities, sexual minorities, etc...). Western Civilization is a system of domination and destruction. And while the exact identities of those they choose to cast as the other may change (as we see with greater acceptance of racial minorities and homosexuality, and increased discrimination of immigrants and religious minorities) Western Civilization will always prop itself on the backs of the least powerful among us. This is why people protest, sometimes aggressively, it's loudest proponents.
Government should not infringe on anyone's free speech, but for those of us who grew up learning of the attrocities of early Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and sooooo many others, we cannot live with ourselves if we allow the sparks of oppression to catch fire.
What's the difference between the Alt-Right and those who confront them? The alt-right judges people for WHAT they are (country of birth, religion, race, gender) and those who oppose them judge people for WHO they are (speech, actions and the content of their character).
And I would hardly call his advocacy of a ban on Muslim immigration as Milo valuing freedom of religion. There are certainly terrible manifestations of Islam in the world, however no more than Christianity, of which he is a proponent. Christianity has no less blood and suffering on its hands. This is hardly disputable.
