Gay Cultural Libertarian and Trump Supporter Milo Yiannopoulos Finally Admits to The Nation That He Isn’t Really A Libertarian

milo-yiannopoulos-on-cnbc

Gay “cultural libertarian” and Donald Trump backer Milo Yiannopoulos, who has been a very controversial figure in many prominent leftist and limousine liberal circles as well as many Democratic-supporting groups that champion political correctness, gender feminism, and the lethal social justice warrior movement, has come out to The Nation‘s D.D. Guttanplan that he isn’t really a libertarian at all. Libertarians, anarcho-capitalists, and anarchists have suspected this all along, and for someone like Yiannopoulos to cop to this is surprising, because up until now he has finally confessed to something that has been an albatross around his neck.

Guttanplan showcases Yiannopoulos’ answer on Libertarians and my political movement and party’s ideology by stating questions to Yiannopoulos who in return replied to him in the following:

What about the Libertarians?

What about them?

Are they not an acceptable alternative?

No. They’re a joke.

Why?

Libertarians are children. Libertarians are people who have given up looking for an answer. This whole “everybody do what they want” is code for “leave me to do what I want.” It’s selfish and childish. It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness. That’s why they’re so obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking.

I always thought those were the most attractive things about them.

Maybe so, but that’s why you can’t take them seriously. It’s all introspective and insular and selfish.

Here’s the entire Nation interview with Yiannopoulos:

Let me address Yiannopoulos’s objectionable point he raised at one point during his interview, specifically the part where he claims Libertarians, and that would put me into the same column along with many of my fabulous and wonderful capital (L) Libertarians and lower-case (l) libertarians, that we are “a joke”:

Libertarians are children. Libertarians are people who have given up looking for an answer. This whole “everybody do what they want” is code for “leave me to do what I want.” It’s selfish and childish. It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness. That’s why they’re so obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking.

Really, Yiannopoulos? So we’re “a joke” to you, all because we’re “selfish and childish,” right? We’re all just, according to your nihilistic and narcissistic British gay ass, “obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking”? Yes, we do want to legalize weed, and no, not all Libertarians and libertarians are into Bitcoin, although many of my ilk do like that digital currency.

Hacking? No, that’s wrong, because that would principally and cardinally be the equivalent of stealing someone’s set of keys and unlocking and going into that individual’s car and driving off into the sunset (a la stealing it) without telling the car owner what you plan to do with his or her property.

Another good analogy would be is this: that would be like taking that same set of keys and using one of the unused keys and unlocking and entering that individual’s home and stealing his or her TVs, his or her Blu-Ray players, and his or her kitchen plates. That would also include his or her Corona Light beer, most of his or her recent grocery store-bought limes, his or her clothes found in one of the bedroom closets, and his or her credit cards, checks, and cash. Then that thief would put ’em all in his or her car and driving off into the sunset after leaving the house unlocked and without bothering to tell the original owners that you were at their home.

No, we don’t hack into other people’s computers. That’s a violation of private property rights. The government’s property? That might be a different story, because the State can hack into our computers and record and listen to us all the time. But we don’t do that to people who are undeserving of that. We are better than that.

It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness.

No, it’s not “an admission” of anything. We “haven’t given up trying to work out what a good society would look like” because that’s tantamount to social engineering, and we are not trying to engineer – meaning mold or model society – into whatever we want it to be. We want to free individuals from the State, and live and let live. We want people to be free – free of tyranny, free of control, free of taxation, free of regulation, free of central planning, free of the State’s never-ending spending sprees, free of state-imposed debt and deficits, and free of Keynesian economics.

It is about returning to true autonomy of the individual, true free(d) markets,  true minimal government, repeal of state-imposed taxation and spending, true market regulations, true market mechanisms, and Austrian economics. It’s about allowing the individual to pursue his dreams and endeavors without the permission of the State and enabling entrepreneurs and free enterprises to flourish without their need to look over their own shoulders and see whether the guns of the State will thwart their very own-self interests. That’s what *REAL* individualism and liberty are all about, not the other way around.

In our world we don’t need order. The State leaving us alone to our own devices and allowing us to learn from our own failures and our mistakes are what make us all human in the end. It’s not our job to ensure “what a good society would look like.” Human beings are not cattle to be herded, not robots to be controlled with a remote control, and so on. We are not automatons. We are human beings with our own interests and desires to seek our own individual and own sovereign dreams, wishes, and desires.

So what if we are “selfish”? Yes, we are selfish. Human beings by their own nature are selfish organic entities. So what’s your point? You are selfish too, Milo, and you know it. You are selfish because, rather than carrying on with your life to further your own individual desires without the sheer brute power of force, you want to use coercion on other people to get and have your own way. That’s your brand of selfish. You are vain, narcissistic, and a nihilist, and that makes you more dangerous than political correctness and social justice warriors combined.

I oppose political correctness, and I despise social justice warriors. But I oppose and despise narcissistic, nihilistic, and vain people who love themselves so much that they must forcefully impose that need for adulation onto other people to get what they want. Libertarians like me are not interested in that, and we shouldn’t be interested at all. That’s not what attracts me to libertarianism.

What attracts me to that movement and to the Libertarian Party….is liberty.

T.J. Brown a.k.a. That Guy T of FEE furnishes his report on his friend Yiannopoulos with the following piece:

taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-1-clip-1-10-20-2016 taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-2-clip-2-10-20-2016 taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-3-clip-3-10-20-2016 taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-4-clip-4-10-20-2016Taleed is right, and Milo is wrong. We do “want to do what we want” because, as Taleed correctly notes, it’s “within the bounds of respecting individual and property rights.” Absolutely the government “should have little to no authority to dictate what person does with their own person or property.” And absolutely Brexit vote to abandon the European Union (EU) was a resounding success!

Yiannopoulos is still stuck in that quaint old British new world order school of thought which suggests that a hodgepodge of nationalism. jingoism, xenophobia, mercantilism (which also signifies protectionism), feudalism, and a vibrant, euphemistic fetishism for a blending of militarism and economic fascism are the central core of a regimented economy and society, because enterprises and individuals of all stripes must be conditioned to worship the State the Donald Trump way. If everyone subscribes to his mindset, which is just as lethal and politically correct as the left that he claims about, he would command a great deal of power of the minds of every individual than he would deserve at the very least.

The fact that he is a renowned public speaker, journalist, entrepreneur, and an uproariously offensive social media darling in the alt-right world is an understatement. It is also an understatement to say that he employs his conservesque brand of political correctness so that all individuals would exemplify the “ordered society” for which he terribly craves.

Yiannopoulos’ Ban from Twitter and the Reasons Why It Happened

What is not an understatement is the fact that he has had his  Twitter account @Nero’s blue badge confiscated by the company and has been banned on Twitter because he harassed Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones by calling her “a black dude” and that she was “barely literate.”

Here are some of the screen shots that chronicle what followed:

milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-1-07-20-2016 milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-2-07-20-2016 milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-3-07-20-2016 milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-4-07-20-2016Of course Jones responded:

What people don’t know is that Yiannopoulos either employed a fake Twitter generator and used Jones account handle @Lesdoggg to create fake tweet or shared them with everyone on the site, making it look like she was employing a homophobic tweet against Milo.

Here’s one of the tweets in question:

One other tweet that Milo had faked was this one (which was actually a collection of two tweets rolled into one):

milos-tweet-clip-1

Here’s another fact to point out here: after Yiannopoulos was banned from the site, conservatives and many members of the alt-right community on the site feed crafted a new hashtag: #FreeMilo.

Here are a slew of conservative and libertarian Twitter users who acted out against the company for its censorship tactics:

and finally,

The reason for Milo’s Twitter ban is obviously: he did harass Jones, especially while he resorted to name-calling. While Jones herself isn’t exactly a Girl Scout herself given that she’s had a racist history evidenced on her account, she didn’t deserve the trolling and the fake account using her name bullshit which she was forced to endure.Yiannopoulos *INDEED* violated the site’s policies. How, you ask? Well, there are three rules of free speech that no one with a pulse worth their salt should *EVER* break:

  1. Never directly threat someone via Twitter or any social media platform as it is not protected by the First Amendment.
  2. Never slander someone on Twitter or any social media platform as it is not protected by the First Amendment.
  3. Never libel someone via Twitter or any social media platform as it is not protected by the First Amendment.

Did Milo directly threaten Jones on Twitter? No, he did not.

Did Milo slander Jones on Twitter? No, he did not.

Did Milo libel Jones on Twitter? Yes, he did *JUST* that.

He broke one of the three cardinal tenets of free speech: you never slander anyone by falsely attributing statements that the other writer didn’t write. If anything, it’s unethical, immoral, and it’s not even protected by the First Amendment. And it’s antithetical to everything that we hold dear in our hearts.

If anything, Leslie Jones has a legal case that she can pursue against Yiannopoulos, and with that evidence available, it’s very likely that she’ll win, and Milos would have no choice but to agree to a hefty settlement. That would be a grand price to pay.

Although I initially defended Milo over his right to free speech, I should’ve realized then that he would never defend your right to free speech as he is politically correct himself and he must be defending Trump who promises to open up the libel laws against anyone who makes a truthful claim about him, right or wrong.

It’s about time Milo states that he is *NOT* a libertarian. After all, we are talking about someone who refers to Trump as “Daddy.” He is a conservative statist who wants liberty for himself but no one else.

As libertarian and Libertarian activist Avens O’Brien recently noted on Milo due to the release of the Libertarian Republic‘s published article on him:

avens-obrien-on-milo-yiannopoulos-clip-1-10-23-2016

And, as Gary Johnson and Libertarian activist supporter Krystle Berger quips:

krystal-bergers-comment-on-milo-on-my-facebook-wall-clip-1-10-24-2016

I just wish other libertarians and conservatives who flock to and love him would see that clearly for once.

 

Billy Bush’s Departure from NBC’s The Today Show Is Punishment Enough

billy-bush2

It was reported three nights ago that Today Show co-host Billy Bush was fired from the show for his role involvement in the Donald Trump tape and allegations scandal that has gone viral and sent shockwaves to the entire country as well as the world.

Sucks to be him.  It’s punishment enough for him.

The Videos of and Allegations Against Donald Trump


billy-bush-donald-trump-and-soap-actress-arianne-zucker-circa-2005d-jpeg

The most recent ruckus involving the surfaced videos of and allegations against Donald Trump has been a top subject of supreme discussion and debate all around the nation. Media pundits and journalists have been on record, including top Republican officials such as governors, congressmen, and senators, as blasting Trump over the comments he made circa 2005 regarding a conversation he had with then-Access Hollywood star Billy Bush (who’s a current, although now suspended, co-host of NBC‘s Today Show) – a conversation regarding a woman that Trump failed to hit on (who turns out to be none other than then-Hollywood Access lead star Nancy O’Dell) that was caught on a hot microphone in which he stated the following:* {*Note: A video is included as well.]

Donald Trump: I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.** [**Second Note: The tape was recorded several months after he married his third wife, Melania, who was pregnant with their son Barron.]

Another Voice: Whoa!

Trump: I did try and fuck her. She was married. [Continues.]  And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” 

Trump: I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

 [At that point in the recording, Trump and Bush begin to notice and see Arianne Zucker, the star of Days of Our Lives who is waiting to escort them into the soap opera set of the show.]

Billy Bush: Your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.

Trump: Whoa! Whoa! I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Billy Bush: Whatever you want.” 

Trump: Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

Of course the Donald was on the Howard Stern Show circa 1997, making horrendous comments about women with whom he has had sex, referring to the acts as his “personal Vietnam,” which can be viewed in the following video:

Here’s a YouTube of that video as well:

 

It doesn’t help the fact that People Magazine journalist Natasha Stoynoff recalls her encounter with Trump, in which she claims that the Donald “sexually assaulted” her. This is how she details it:

Of course, according to an NBC News piece titled “The Allegations Women Have Made Against Donald Trump,” there have been allegations advanced by other women and individuals such as Trump’s ex-wife Ivana (who claims, as revived by the Daily Beast, that he “raped” her in 1989 but didn’t open up to that account until she reportedly told her friends about it, which basically and partly the subject of a  1993 published book titled “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald Trump,”) Jill Harth (1992), Jane Doe (1994), former Miss Utah Temple Daggart McDowell (1997), former Miss Washington Cassandra Searless (2013), some former crew of The Apprentice, former Miss Vermont Teen USA Maria Billado , former Miss New Mexico Teen USA Victoria Hughes, other unnamed Miss USA pageants (2001), former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon (2001), Jessica Leeds (1980s), Rachel Crooks (2005), Mindy McGillivay (2003), Kristin Anderson (1990s), The Apprentice Season Five contestant Summer Zervos (2007), former Miss New Hampshire Bridget Sullivan, and New York City resident Cathy Heller (1997). Other people include an unnamed friend of CNN reporter and OutFront host Erin Burnett (2010) and former Miss North Carolina Samantha Holvey (2006).

Once the videos and the allegations came out, it’s become a media storm ever since. U.S. House of Representative Jason Chaffetz, according to Politico, told CNN in the following video:

Even Paul Ryan can’t stomach Trump’s remarks in the videos, and he probably can’t even stomach the allegations that come with those said remarks. Trump has since attacked Ryan with a new Twitter offensive against the congressman.

Celebrities like Emmy Rossum and Rosie O’Donnell became outraged by what Donald said. And they kept tweeting, becoming angry by what they had seen and heard from a man who thinks grabbing a “woman’s pussy” is A-okay.

Here’s Emmy’s tweet on the subject:

MY THOUGHTS ON THE TRUMP VIDEOS AND ALLEGATIONS MATTER

Here’s the reality that everyone seems to be forgetting. I condemn what former President Bill Clinton did to Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey,  and Juanita Broaddrick. The fact that he had a much-publicized dalliance with a White House intern made me nauseas for days and months on end in the mid-to-late 1990s; however, it was consensual, despite the fact that it was shameful of him to cheat on Hillary at the time. But rulers in positions of powers have done that for centuries. Has anyone heard the sexual activities of England’s King Henry VIII? Did anyone know that Ann Boleyn was raped while still married to the King at the time?

At the same time I condemn what Trump has said on these videos and also condemn him for making these statements. After all, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump are morally-bankrupt, ethically-bankrupt, and anti-freedom reprehensible reprobates, and Hillary is a war machine-producing, pro-military (yet anti-troop), anti-freedom reprobate as well. They all are vicious liars – pathetic to the core, corrupt in mind, body, and soul, and evil to the bone. The Trump supporters are trying to make excuses for Trump’s putrid and repugnant behavior. That doesn’t sit well with most of the electorate, and I think that matters in the grand scheme of things.

Trump supporters say that this was “locker room talk” and that women do the same thing when they talk to other women in private, even if the conversation’s on hot mike. Personally I don’t know a single woman who has told her girl friends their version of a so-called locker room talk the following: “See that guy Tim Tebow over there? I would love to have his hot and juicy hard cock bouncing around in the back of my throat while I’m gagging off of him. I mean, who wouldn’t dream of his Ball Park hot dog squirting mozarella cheese into the back of my throat? Man, if he squirted his chewy semen into my mouth, I would swish it around like it was Crest mouthwash.”

But that’s just it. A woman would have far more dignity than that to say that about a guy whom she just saw, and a guy would have far more dignity than to say that about a woman whom he just met. No guy and girl would ever say that about anyone. I don’t know anyone who would say shit like that. Some guys and girls might joke around a bit, but they know their real limits. The questions that no one is asking are these: would anyone say these things in private, let alone in public, whether you’re on a hot microphone or not? If you were a woman, would you say them? I don’t think so. If you were a guy, would you do the same about a woman? I don’t think so either. I don’t in public and private. I’m better than that, and people should be, especially about people whom they don’t know from Adam.

Sheldon Richman, writing in his Free Association blog, pens the following:

sheldon-richman-condemning-sexual-assault-is-too-easy-the-piece-by-itself-10-14-2016

He’s right and wrong. He’s right in saying that Obama’s murders and havoc at home and abroad are the real issues, and not the sexual assault matter. But sexual assaults do matter. They matter more than anyone else will ever know.

And it’s time – high time – that we address this concern for what it is. It is a problem here in the U.S.

What I find objectionable from the left and the celebrities talking about Trump is that, while they condemn what Trump has done and it does need to be condemned, they don’t condemn what ISIS and other Arab leaders and Arab men in their native homelands do to women, as far as raping and sexually assaulting them. Rape culture is predominant there, not here. The Patriarchy exists there, not here.

Can’t we all just be honest for a change? Please? Is that too much to ask?

Real Time with Bill Maher Host Bill Maher’s Interview with Limousine Liberal Democrat (and Hollywood Actress) America Ferrera

America Ferrera on Real Time with Bill Maher Full Screenshot - Pic - 07-22-2016
HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher interviewed ubiquitous limousine liberal Democrat, Hillary Clinton supporter, and Hollywood actress America Ferrera on his Friday, July 22, 2016 show (Episode 398) and discussed why she’s behind Clinton all the way, which led to a panel discussion that became superficially heated. She comes off as very insulting, very condescending, and very obtuse during the interview, although she initially had me on the immigration issue considering she correctly addressed the lies that Republicans have been spilling on so-called “illegal immigrants.”* [*Note: I prefer to call them “independent migrants” thanks to my old left-libertarian mentor Sheldon Richman who understands the issue better than *ANY* Republican known on record.]

The panel line-up included MTV News and New York Times progressive author and blogger Ana Marie Cox, progressive “Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World” author and Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer,  and Trump supporter and former U.S. Representative Jack Kingston (R-GA) (who was incidentally receiving more flak from Ferrera, Maher, and Cox during the last segment of the show).

Here’s the YouTube of the interview portion of the show, broadcasted on July 22, 2016:

That’s pretty much the size of everything.
