Milo Resigns From Breitbart While Media Continues Assault Against #GamerGate

During a press conference held on February 21st, former Breitbart tech editor, Milo Yiannopoulos, announced his resignation. This comes amid a media blitz attacking the editor based on some flippant remarks he made about sexual discovery as a homosexual during an interview from last year in 2016 way back in January.

CNN Money posted up the video where Milo stated…

“It would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important job, which is why today I’m resigning from Breitbart effectively immediately.”

During the press conference Milo apologies for some of the things he’s said, but also notes that the media grossly misrepresented some of his statements by taking them out of context, not unlike what happened with PewDiePie recently, who was labeled as a white supremacist and a Nazi sympathizer.

Milo goes on to say…

“I’m implacably opposed to the normalization of pedophilia, and I will continue to report and speak accordingly. To repeat, I do not support child abuse. It is a disgusting crime, of which I have personally been a victim.”

Milo essentially reiterates talking points brought up by PewDiePie: that the media doesn’t care about justice for kids (as is evident with them lying to cover-up #Pizzagate) but they do care about defaming political opponents and doing hit-pieces to tear down those who are ideologically opposed to their narratives.

The media did not take any of Milo’s comments lightly, and decided to not only attack him, but also further their opposite to anti-media campaigns like #GamerGate.

In fact, Reddit user B-Volleyball-Ready compiled a list of excerpts from recent reports from the media’s coordinated assault against Milo, attempting to paint him as a pedophile.

U.S. News claimed Milo rose to prominence through #GamerGate by targeting women.

Express paints Milo as an advantageous provocateur who took charge of #GamerGate leading a harassment campaign against women.

Stephen Silver from Blasting News reiterates old talking points from 2014, claiming that #GamerGate is/was a harassment campaign against women with Milo being a “vile” voice amongst the throng. This is despite the fact that even the FBI didn’t have evidence showing that #GamerGate was a harassment campaign. Silver fails to cite any evidence for the claim, but it doesn’t stop him from making it.

The New York Daily News reiterated the same talking points of Silver, the same with Dorian Lynskey from The Guardian. They also completely ignore the fact that every study done on #GamerGate, including a peer reviewed report from WAM!, couldn’t find evidence to support the claims that it was or ever has been a harassment campaign.

And of course, everyone’s favorite fact-denier, The Washington Post, was also quick to get in on the smear, continuing to repeat the same falsehoods as all the others… almost as if it were some sort of coordinated attack put together in secret by a journalist list or something. Oh wait…

The message on /pol/ was actually posted a day before the Monday smear campaign. So either that poster is a lucky guesser, a pre-cog or part of the JournoList 3.0. And given that this is identical to the GameJournoPros attack on game culture back in 2014 when they systematically claimed that “gamers were dead”, it’s not hard to spot the patterns… again. Another journalist on the newly remade GJP 2.0 even admitted that they had reformed the list and culled the unsaintly.

This is just more of the typical brandishing from the media as a way to get people to stay in line. Obedience through dogmatic duress.

Meanwhile, Milo has announced that he will be starting his own media venture of his own, and will continue to tour college campuses around the United States, as part of his “troll academy” tour, which is bound to keep journalists apoplectic given their failure to silence Milo for good.

  • This should be a clear indication that the leftists/SJWs are still very much in power. I’ve said this before, regardless of the growing dissent and fightback of these people, leftists/SJWs are still the ones in charge of the mainstream media, news media, academia, education, politics, government, society, entertainment media, etc.

    Milo is of course controversial, we all know he likes to joke, banter and say some outrageous things, but all these years of it has finally come back to bite him. As a journalist, he should know that the one thing you don’t “joke” or make “light-hearted” about is anything relating to ped0philia. Because nothing makes normies go red in the eyes and rage more than that subject.

    The retards at Breitbart who decided to protest against Milo are over-sensitive crybabies, they have basically acted exactly like SJWs. You know, stamp your feet and whine until Milo resigns/gets fired. And they got what they want. 100% Social Justice behaviour.

    And now once again, MSM hammers GamerGate along with Milo. And of course, the braindead normies and sheeple will suck it all up and take it as gospel. It’s like we’ve gone back 2-3 years.

    “Tired of winning”? Not even fucking close.

    Dumb question, but what did he say really that made them go off on a tangent?

    Also, why the hell are they making such a big stink of it now if what they’re going off on Milo about something that happened more than a year ago? Slowbros hanging around CNN or something?

        Well, he is not wrong pedophilia means children 15-16 year olds are not children they are teens, they understand what sex is. So its not pedophilia its taking advantage confused teens.

    From what I heard, Milo was a child abuse victim. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was by the same people funding the campaign against him now.

    I think it’s sad how easy it is to smear people by digging up character flaws about them. In reality, humans are not perfect. Far from it. I’d wager most people have some kind of secret bizarre fetish or twisted part of their personality.

    Why is it such a big deal when such a trait becomes publicly known, especially if that person has never harmed, and likely will never harm anyone? People should just accept that everyone is very likely perverted in some way, and there’s nothing wrong with it, as long as they are not hurting anyone else.

    Meanwhile, actual abusers continue to perpetrate crimes against innocents, but nobody cares, because the media literally suppresses true victims, and focuses on demonizing us. Assholes who have actually harmed others, keep getting a free pass from the mainstream media, and people don’t find that strange or hypocritical?

    They’re so damn inconsistent, constantly flip-flopping according to who they want to slander and destroy. If it was a matter of principles/morals, they would not flip-flop. That’s why they are FAKE NEWS.

    Journos definitely want to get Milo. After Flynn got kicked, people were talking about the media wanting more scalps. They said Breitbart’s Steve Bannon was next. Turns out, the next scalp was the actual huge, effective target: MILO.

    Milo was basically gay teflon. When his Twitter got suspended, he didn’t lose anything. His book went to #1 on Amazon after the Berkley riot. Even him going on with Bill Maher caused such a meltdown that no one could ignore it.

    After this, Milo’s publisher pussed out (Milo said the book is still coming out on time). He also resigned from Breitbart.

    That’s interesting because supposedly, and I have reasons not to doubt this, that Breitbart writers and such were threatening to leave if they kept Milo. These conservatives probably would too. They were in on the fix with all the liberals and leftists pushing this. I don’t trust conservatives because they always pull their punches, they always lose their battles, and they’ll stab you in the back for the benefit of the left. I wouldn’t doubt that these Breitbart people threatening to quit over Milo weren’t instrumental to the attack against Milo. They are weak and bend over for the left and now have the warm and fuzzies over Milo leaving.

    But Milo will always cast a huge homo shadow over them, especially as they sleep.

      I wouldn’t hold it against Breitbart. If Milo didn’t leave, Trump and Bannon would be left vulnerable to the media’s guilt-by-association tactics. Some individual writers could be rotten though, like hoaxer Michelle Fields was.

        I’m not blaming all of Breitbart. I’m talking about the back stabbers it employs. This article shows how guilt by association, in regards to GG, is used against Milo’s comments even though they have absolutely nothing to do with GG (outside of that actual pedo Nicholas Nyberg once again playing the victim, but he inserted himself into this.)

        If the media and their handlers want to use guilt by association tactics against you, they will regardless of who you actually associate with. How many times has the media lumped Milo into the alt-right even though they hate him for being a gay jew? How many times has the media lumped in millions of Americans with Nazis? The media does guilt by association and a bunch of other underhanded tactics all the damn time and faggots at Breitbart joining in with the media mob shows they are weak cowards you will sell you out at the drop of the hat. If they’ll join the media’s mob against Milo, they’ll join in with the mob against the average American.
