Milo Yiannopoulos

I am not sure how many of my readers have heard of Milo Yiannopoulos. Those that have may not pay much attention to him. He is a British journalist that is currently the Technical Editor for Breitbart News. He is a well know public speaker and is most well-known recently for his controversial “Dangerous Faggot Tour” in 2015. His tour included colleges in the US and in Britain. The US colleges he spoke at include: Rutgers, the University of Minnesota, DePaul and UCLA.

Milo’s speeches are always controversial on college campuses. Many of his college appearances were cancelled, both here and in England. He considers himself as a cultural libertarian and I do not even know what that means, but I like most of what he says. Because he is a gay man, he is expected to speak “liberal Democrat.” He does not do that. He says what he thinks is the truth and it is closer to what I believe than most other writers and speakers I am exposed to in my normal routine.

Earlier today, I shared an article on Facebook that Milo wrote for Breitbart News called “What Trump Means.” It had Trump’s picture on it, but it is Milo’s article. It is long, but well worth reading. He seems to have the same understanding that I have about the significance of the Trump presidency and Trump’s intended accomplishments as President.

I am not advocating for Milo, but I do think his voice is worthy of some attention.
